Heavy metals can build up in our systems from everyday staples such as; food, water, cleaning products, personal hygiene products and cosmetics. All heavy metals can accumulate in the body and to some degree, affect the absorption of nutrients and impair detoxification pathways. Heavy metals also compromise every organ system in the body which can result in serious damage.
The basic heavy metal test is an assessment tool used to test for cadmium, lead, zinc, copper and mercury. This test requires a urine sample which is then added to a solution that will change colour. Depending on the results I will provide you with suggestions on how to detoxify your system if required as well as what foods/products should be reduced if toxicity is present.
