What is Heavy Metal Intoxication?

Exposure to water, food and environmental chemicals can lead to a build up of toxins in your body. Your body holds on to these toxins, and they begin to affect the tissues in your body. The most common metals associated with heavy metal poisoning are lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium. 

Heavy metal poisoning can occur from air pollution, water pollution, medication, foods, industry environments, food containers and lead based paints. Symptoms can range from fatigue, weakness, headaches, muscle pain and gastrointestinal issues to vomiting, confusion and numbness.

Fortunately, there are specialized tests that can detect heavy metals in your body, and integrative treatments to help release your body of these toxic agents.
