Heavy Metal Detoxification in a modern world
Unfortunately, we live in a less than pure and natural environment. Every day, we encounter pollutants – in our air, our food, the chemicals we clean our homes with, even in scented candles, air fresheners and fabric softeners.
Some of these pollutants can be easily processed by the body and flushed out of our systems. Others, like heavy metals, tend to remain in the blood and tissues, creating problems.
Heavy metals include:
Lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. These metals can contribute to degenerative diseases. And contribute to symptoms like chronic fatigue, memory loss, insomnia, unexplained tremors, depression, chronic headaches, and other problems.
Ridding the body of these toxic substances may help you live a symptom-free life, and even help you live longer.

Why is Heavy Metal Detox essential?
Heavy metal infiltration can be a root cause or a cofactor to illness. And heavy metal poisoning is related to many chronic illnesses.
Our exposure to heavy metals can vary in range of intensity, depending on the location and surroundings of our daily activities and lifestyle. Heavy Metals can be ingested through food or water. According to the Scientific World Journal “…heavy metal toxicity provides no positive impact but does contribute to noncommunicable chronic disease.”
Long-term exposures of Heavy Metals can cause physical, muscular, and neurological degeneration. The best way to treat the toxicity is to actually reverse the symptoms through natural detoxing.
The goal of detox is to remove the metals from the body.
