Whole-Body Health & Your Metal Toxicity Test

Patient and doctor going over test resultsA metal toxicity test is just one of the services we offer at Balance of Life Clinic, but it’s an important one. Heavy metals are in the food we eat, the air we breathe, and water we drink. As those heavy metals accumulate in the body, they can cause a plethora of health problems. Testing your levels of stored toxic metals could be the first step towards a healthier you.

The Problem With Heavy Metals

Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and metalloid arsenic may be fairly benign in small amounts, but when your body stores too many of those metals, you may experience issues related to damage of your most important organs and systems including your:

  • Bones
  • Liver
  • Lungs
  • Kidneys
  • Gastrointestinal systems
  • Central nervous system
  • Cardiovascular system

 

When To Get A Metal Toxicity Test

Heavy metal toxicity comes with a range of symptoms that run the gamut from nausea and vomiting to heart problems and anemia. While some people may notice physical changes and report those symptoms, many times heavy metal buildup goes unnoticed until larger issues arise. For that reason, your doctor may order a metal toxicity panel as part of a comprehensive exam. That way, you’ll get a bigger picture of your health and your medical team has more information with which to build a customized treatment plan.

Another reason to get toxic metal testing is if you fall into higher-risk categories due to exposure to:

  • Lead-based paint or plumbing
  • Amalgam dental fillings
  • Contaminated shellfish
  • Foods grown in lead-rich soil
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Household products made with cadmium

 

Treating Heavy Metal Toxicity

Depending on the results of your testing, we may recommend chelation, a process that helps clear the body of heavy metal toxins. Chelation therapy may include oral medications to support the elimination of mercury, cadmium and arsenic and calcium-disodium EDTA to help with lead toxicity. We may also suggest making dietary and lifestyle changes to prevent reexposure and help keep your body in balance.
