Heavy Metal exposure and retention is evaluated through an outside lab, after a 6 hour urinary collection. (Test kit is sold at Inside Health).
Environmental metals tend to accumulate in the body, specifically in the brain and other fatty tissues. Use of these potential toxins is increasing because of their growing commercial, industrial, and medical applications. The major heavy metals present are mercury, arsenic, antimony, aluminum, lead and cadmium.
Evidence suggests that chronic heavy metal exposure can adversely affect energy levels, reproductive function, cancer risk, degenerative conditions, neurological development and function, respiratory, cardiac, hepatic and immune functions, as well as cognitive and emotional health
