“Hungry for Change” A-ha……..HEAVY METALS

 

Heavy metals we’re not talking about Ozzy Osbourne, in your body – there are 23 of them!  The most dangerous to the body and of no use are mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic and aluminum.

Do you remember the liv-ah?  These are the substances that just keep going round and round and round on account the liv-ah doesn’t know what to do with it!  Your liver needs some help.  Avoid at all costs these metals and get some help for your liv-ah!

“Your body wants to naturally detoxify itself.  Only the body can detoxify itself…..provided there is no toxins coming in.  The best thing a person can do in the beginning is with food”:

  • Organic fruits and vegetables
  • Gelatinous fibres
  • Cilantro –binds with mercury to clear out of your body
  • Good water
  • Sun light
  • In with gentle foods and get out in nature

The second best thing a person can do is to supplement.  Your body needs some help….

Aluminum – The specific gravity is 2.80. The best way to test for contamination is blood, urine or feces for recent exposure; hair or fingernail analysis will detail the last 3 to 6 months. Hair with coloring in it will not give a reliable reading of toxicity. Because of its low specific gravity, aluminum is not a heavy metal. Aluminum can leach calcium from the bones. It can also stop the body’s ability to digest and make use of calcium, fluoride and phosphorous.

colic, hyperactivity in kids, imbalance when walking, poor memory,
degenerative muscular conditions, cancer, Alzheimer’s
calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, vitamin B complex, vitamin C central nervous system, kidneys, digestion system
Arsenic – The specific gravity is 5.7. The best way to test for contamination is urine for recent exposure; hair or fingernail analysis will detail the last 3 to 6 months. Hair with coloring in it will not give a reliable reading of toxicity. During the Victorian era arsenic was believed to prevent aging.

Targeted
smelting process of copper, zinc and lead, manufacturing

cardiovascular collapse, numbness, tingling, darkening of the skin,
birth defects, cancer, diabetes, Raynaud’s syndrome
vitamin C, alpha-lipoic acid blood, kidneys, central nervous system, digestion system, skin, liver, lung, bladder
Cadmium – The specific gravity is 8.65. The best way to test for contamination is blood or urine for recent exposure; hair or fingernail analysis will detail the last 3 to 6 months. Hair with coloring in it will not give a reliable reading of toxicity. In the liver it is bonded to protein forming complexes, which are then transported to the kidneys causing damage to the filtration process. The damage allows essential proteins and nutrients to be excreted from the body causing even further damage.
Cadmium is very difficult to remove from the body.

Targeted
tobacco smoke, instant coffee and tea, nickel-cadmium batteries, bad water, some soft drinks, refined grains, fungicides,

enlarged prostate, increased risk of cancer, hair loss, learning
disabilities, kidney disorders, liver disorders, skin disorders,
painful joints, decreased immune functions, lung damage
zinc, iron, vitamin C, amino acids (L-methionine, L-cysteine, L-lysine) gastrointestinal system, liver, placenta, kidneys, lungs, brain, bones, central nervous system, bones, reproductive organs
Lead – The specific gravity is 11.34. The best way to test for contamination is blood. Lead suppresses neuron clusters in the brain.

tobacco smoke, eating leaded paint, lead based ceramic
glazed cookware, leaded gasoline, eating contaminated liver, inner city living, canned food (lead soldered), some bone meal supplements, some insecticides, batteries, plumbing, pencils, crystal glass production
poor bone growth, learning disabilities, fatigue, poor task performance,
irritability, anxiety, high blood pressure, weight loss, susceptibility to infections, headaches, ringing in ears, lack of concentration,
gastrointestinal problems, constipation, muscle and joint pain,
tremors, decreased immune functions, insomnia, hallucinations, birth
defects, autism, colic
calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin C, amino acids (L-lysine, L-cysteine, L-cystine) bones, brain, kidneys, thyroid gland, liver, central nervous system
Mercury – The specific gravity is 13.546. The best way to test for contamination is blood or urine for recent exposure; an x-ray will show if it is flowing through your system. Mercury prevents zinc from performing its normal function in the body, even where there is plenty of zinc. Contaminated fish and seafood have become major issues. Never eat Mackerel King, Shark, Swordfish, Tilefish or Grouper. In general, the older and larger the fish the more mercury they will contain.
