Heavy metals are those which are not metabolized by the body and tend to accumulate in the soft tissues of the body. These metals may enter the body through food, water, air, or skin absorption. Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in the physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Muscular Dystrophy, heart arrhythmia, Multiple Sclerosis, and many more.

Heavy metals penetrate the body via breathing, eating, drinking, and skin absorption. An over-concentration of certain elemental toxic metals can result in heavy metal poisoning and often subtle or serious health problems. These include organ damage, behavioral changes, and difficulties with thinking and memory. Specific symptoms and their personal effects depend on the type and quantity of the metal endemic to the body.

Symptoms of heavy metal intoxication may include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Tingling in the hands and feet
