Heavy Metal Toxicity
The goal of this protocol is to reduce your patient’s accumulation of toxic metal elements while simultaneously replacing essential minerals. Before your patient begins this program, be sure to conduct a thorough health assessment. This program is designed to be completed under your observation, and it is your responsibility to be directly involved in your patient’s care before, during, and after the protocol. Metal and Mineral Balancing can be an extensive and lengthy process that should be accompanied by lifestyle adjustments and nutrient supplementation for success. This protocol can cause major stress on the body, so be sure to prepare your patient by discussing the basics of heavy metal detoxification along with the need for extensive monitoring and supplementation.
What is Toxic Metal Element Toxicity?
The toxic metal elements include mercury, lead, aluminum, nickel, arsenic, cadmium, and calcium (under some circumstances). Though found abundantly in nature, high levels of these toxic metals accumulating within the body can trigger numerous health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, neurological conditions, and endocrine disruption. Toxic metals can come from a variety of sources, the most common being pollution, older building materials such as paint or pipes, dental work, and seafood.
