Heavy Metal/Chemical Detox

When a client comes to see me with unexplained reasons for current health symptoms and they say that nothing recommended has helped. That they just feel so tired and out of balance all the time.

My ears and senses prick up, and after an in-house questioning and investigation , i recommend either an immediate Hair Test or Urine Sample test to detect for heavy metals or chemical poisoning.

These tests are done via FX Med in Napier and BioTrace in Auckland and then sent on to Laboratories in America for a detailed testing. We receive their report and we take it from there.

Heavy metal and chemical poisoning may occur as a result of industrial exposure, air or water pollution, foods, medicines, improperly coated food containers, or the ingestion of lead-based paints.

Mercury, lead, chromium, cadmium, and arsenic have been the most common heavy metals that induced human poisonings.

Not forgetting orchard sprays, for example Kiwifruit Orchards using Hydrogen cyanamide, often known by the brand name HiCane.

Methyl formate (Erinol), ethyl formate and (in some countries) ethylene oxide are frequently applied to dried fruits to kill infestations of insects and molds. Chemicals that delay ripening or senescence. It truly pays to eat local organic foods and eat foods grown in season.

Heavy metals and chemicals are found in:

  • Dentists and Dental Assistants

  • Mercury dental fillings

  • Engineers

  • Mechanics

  • Panel beaters and Paint

  • Any employment that uses chemicals e.g. Orchards

  • Sprayers

  • Orchard workers

  • Vintage Car Restorers

  • Vintage Furniture Restorers

  • Colour Specialists and Hair Dressers

  • Beauty Salons and Nail Bars

  • Council workers weed spraying

  • Pesticide sprays. Glyphosate or Roundup

  • Insecticide spraying even around the house with the most commonly used are the organophosphates, pyrethroids and carbamates

  • Topdressing Fertiliser

  • Concrete and Transport workers.

  • Vaping devices

  • All types of Vaccinations

  • Perfumes

  • Beauty lotions and creams, lipsticks, shampoos

What body system can heavy metals affect?

Heavy Metals build up in the body and thereby disrupt function in all organs and glands such as the:

  • heart

  • brain

  • kidneys

  • bone

  • liver

  • lungs

  • spleen

  • lymphatic system

Heavy metals use up and displace the vital nutritional minerals from their original place, which then, interferes with their biological function.

Toxic Overload Signs & Symptoms

• skin flushing

• dizziness

• headache

• shortness of breath

• rapid pulse

• severe skin or eye irritation

• Numbness of lips

• Difficulty Concentrating

• Brain fog

• Poor focus

• Confusion

• Mood Swings

• Lack of Energy

• Trouble Sleeping

• Tiredness

• Feel Bloated

• Stomach pain

• Joint pain

• Live or Work Around Environmental Pollutants.

These symptoms can also point to other areas in your body that are out of balance. Sure i say, lets fix those up first. However if not much improvement, it becomes obvious to me that something else is behind the cause.

I ask you "Why wouldn't you want to rule out heavy metals or chemical poisoning?" I offer a free 15 minute Naturopath chat to see how best i can help you find balance.
