How to Detox Heavy Metals
Unfortunately, we have reached a point where heavy metals (as well as a range of other chemical toxins) have made their way into our everyday lives. These things enter our bodies and disrupt health in many ways. Luckily, armed with a bit of knowledge and a little proactivity, much of the risk of these things can be mitigated. It is imperative that you learn how to detox heavy metals as these are one of the most disruptive toxins we face today.
Things like lead, mercury, and aluminum have found their way into the environment and end up places we normally wouldn’t think of as sources of toxins. Our industrialized culture with all of our technology has led to a large uptick in the manufacture and disposal of heavy metal-containing materials that, let’s face it, ultimately end up in the environment.
What is a Heavy Metal?
A heavy metal is a metal that has a density of at least 5 g/cm3. It is generally understood that heavy metals have adverse effects on living organisms and the environment when present in large amounts.
When present in the human body, they serve no beneficial role. In fact, they almost always interfere with normal biological processes instead. They do this partly by binding to proteins in the body that would otherwise be activated by normally occurring minerals like magnesium and zinc. This causes massive cellular interference, oxidative stress, and chronic inflammation.
Acute Vs. Chronic Exposure
Something that is important to understand before getting too deep into this article is that we are not referring to acute exposure to metals so much as we are chronic exposure. Of course, there is an issue when someone is suddenly exposed to a large dose of a toxic metal that causes an immediate toxicity and there are ways of mitigating those damages in an emergency scenario.
What we need to understand though is that even low-level exposure to heavy metals over time can also have a detrimental impact on the body. This is why it is important to understand some of the common sources and ways you can help your body eliminate them on a daily basis if you want to maintain a vibrant level of health.
Who is Susceptible?
As you may have guessed, anyone is susceptible to heavy metal exposure. The difference is that some people have a higher ability to eliminate these things, giving them a higher tolerance before they begin to experience any symptoms. Certain occupations also tend to increase exposure to heavy metals.
Occupations With Higher Exposure
- Auto Repair
- Dental Work
- Industrial Agriculture
- Anyone Regularly Working With Industrial Chemicals
Those More Susceptible To Metal Toxicity
Those dealing with:
- Leaky Gut
- Liver Damage or Poor Liver Function
- Chronic Infection
- Chronic Blood Sugar Imbalance
- Micronutrient Deficiencies
- Increased Mental or Emotional Stress
- Any Condition That Inhibits the Function of the Gut, Liver, Gallbladder, or Kidneys
The symptoms of chronic heavy metal exposure can vary depending on an individual’s health, exposure level, and the types of metals that they are exposed to. Someone with robust detoxification ability will have a higher tolerance to detox heavy metals while someone else could be extremely sensitive to even the smallest exposure.
Some of the Most Common Symptoms Include:
Several heavy metals have also been classified as cancer-causing agents.
Introducing HM-ET Binder
Our HM-ET Binder is not from activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is a long-chain carbon but considered a spent carbon meaning that is like a sponge to bind toxins only in the GI System. The products we use are long and short chain active carbon molecules, which have the ability to support life.
It is derived from multiple sources of humic acid and fluvic acid. The properties used are derivatives from all sources including multiple extracts of polyelectrolytes, polysaccharides, amino acids, and organic acids.
Directions: Take 1 capsule 2-3x daily or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is HM-ET Binder?
A: HM-ET Binder is different than regular carbon as it has had molecules removed from the carbon atom, making it easier to bind to toxins in the body.
Q: What is the Recommended Dosage?
A: Take 1 capsule – 2-3x daily on an empty stomach or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.
