Is Heavy Metals Toxicity A Primary Cause of Disease?

Heavy Metal Toxicity, or heavy metal poisoning, refers to the accumulation of toxic amounts of heavy metals in the soft tissues of the body.

Every day, people regain their health in some part through detoxifying from these heavy metals.

The connection between toxins and disease is UNDISPUTED.

They are everywhere: food, water, air, household products.

+ Do you know someone who smokes cigarettes? Are they detoxing the cadmium and other metals ingested from cigarette smoking?

+ Do you know someone on the autism spectrum? Have they undergone an aluminum detox and seen improvements in speech and function?

+ Do you know how much mercury is in your body? EVERYONE has some level of this toxic element inside their bodies.

Toxic metals such as Mercury, Aluminum, Cadmium, Arsenic, Lead, and Nickel can contribute to many diseases. According to Dr. Mercola these include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other brain and neurological disorders.

A 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that blood samples from newborns contained an average of 287 toxins, including mercury, fire retardants, pesticides and chemicals in non-stick cookware.

So how do you know if you are suffering from toxicity caused by Heavy Metals?

Indications can include:

  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Headache
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Impaired cognitive, motor and language skills
  • Fatigue
  • Digestive distress
  • Aching joints
  • Depression
  • menstrual difficulties
  • infertility
  • premature birth

Guidelines for Reducing Your Heavy Metals Exposure

  1. Avoid aluminum based cosmetics
  2. Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke
  3. Use natural cleaning products
  4. Use glass, cast iron, carbon steel, titanium, and enamel cookware.
  5. Avoid fish high in mercury.

  1. This was an interesting read – I have never heard about detoxing from metals before, but what you’re saying makes total sense. I am not a smoker, so don’t have to worry about the cadmium you’ve mentioned – but some of the other examples are interesting x

  2. Apologies, we read this headline as ‘heavy metal’ ‘toxicity’ as in the heavy metal band System of a Down and their song. Could help but chuckle. However it is food for thought and we sometimes wonder is metals are poisoning our environment x

  3. I’ve read a little about this recently. We’re in the process of having our kitchen refitted and replacing pans etc. I’ll definitely consider your advice when choosing products

  4. Emma-Louise Dean

    Wow this is such an interesting post – I’m always suffering from fatigue it seems but I’d never thought it could be something like this. Definitely something I’ll look into xo

  5. Great article, Elise. I practice very low toxicity into my lifestyle. It is always good to recheck and make sure for me personally if there is something more I can do. I am slowly transitioning my cosmetics over to vegan and no mercury products.

  6. That’s really interesting. I have a lot of fatigue and I’d be interested in finding out if heavy metals were a contriburing factor.

  7. I’ve never heard of heavy metal poising before, however this post is great for informing people of it and the ways to avoid it, and I am pretty sure none of the things on list apply to me! Thank gosh. Thanks for raising awareness x

  8. I don’t think I’ve heard of heavy metal poisoning! I’m definitely on the road to living a cleaner lifestyle though, with natural cleaning and cosmetic products. It’s scary the damage we can cause just by using every day items.

    1. You are doing great. You will also learn some other things that are super easy that you can do to further protect your health.

  9. It’s astonishing how many things around us can hurt our health! I had no idea about heavy metals or that all of us have a quantity of mercury in our bodies.

    Elise, I have a relative who is on the autism spectrum. I will speak with his mom about the aluminum detox. Thanks for the info.

  11. My mother’s old fillings caused her HM poisoning. It took lots of dental work and blood work with meds to rid them.
    Tony Robbins also suffered from it. Thought he was going crazy!

  12. What a fascinating topic. I just read an article about a town in the midwest where the people had been suffering for years from the effects of chemicals in the water. I’ve never suffered from any of the symptoms you described, but I have always been cautious about the types of products I use and food I eat. Definitely, an issue we all need to be aware of. Thanks!

  13. Thanks for the tips. My mom has always been concerned about consuming aluminum. She never let me wear certain deodorant. My friends used to laugh, but now I’m glad that I listened.

  14. Around age 60 I noticed that my handwriting was getting smaller and I was writing faster. I also noticed a small tremor in my right hand. The doctor went over my different symptoms and he suspected I’d either had a small stroke or the beginnings of Parkinson ‘s disease. After finding a neurologist and some testing I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of Parkinson’s disease. That was 4 years ago. I take Sinimet four times a day to control my symptoms, which include falling, imbalance, gait problems, swallowing difficulties, and slurring of speech,This year, our family doctor started me on Mbeki Herbal Clinic Parkinson’s Disease Herbal mixture, 5 weeks into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of dementia, hallucination, weakness, muscle pain or tremors.

    Visit Mbeki Herbal Clinic official website ww w.mbekiherbalclinic .com. I am strong again and able to go about daily activities.‌ This Herbal Formula is Incredible!!

  15. Great article – I always try to be conscious of heavy metal toxicity, and follow many of these guidelines. We switched over from non-stick coated to ceramic cookware for this reason. Both my mother and mother in-law died of Alzheimer’s, so we are doing whatever we can to avoid that fate!

  16. This is wonderful information. I have often felt that heavy metal toxicity could have a huge impact on my thyroid health. I have struggled with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis for years and follow a very clean lifestyle. The summit sounds like a terrific resource for information.
