Cliff's Notes

Toxic Metal Testing

Toxic metals are often very difficult to measure in the body. Medical physicians and other practitioners use various methods to determine if you have these toxins. Once you are exposed to a toxic metal they very rapidly move from the blood to the tissue and to the cells.

Here are some current methods of measuring toxic metals

Blood:

This is fast and simple but will only measure toxins that are circulating in the blood. Once the toxin has moved to the tissue, the levels in the blood fall very quickly. This happens within a few hours or days depending on the toxin. Even with current techniques of blood measurement, they could be missed.

Hair:

This is also fast and simple. Again as with blood, hair will only show recent exposure up to several months. In addition, the use of different dyes or hair products may give us an inaccurate result.

Urine:

This method uses a provocation technique where you are given an oral chelator. Your urine is then collected for a period of time, usually 6-12 hours and is analyzed for toxic metals. It is a very accurate method to determine what your toxic “load” is as it will look at “stored” toxins.
