We live in a toxic world, and these toxins affect every aspect of our lives. Heavy metals — lead, arsenic, mercury, cadmium, and uranium — are toxic minerals that are attached so firmly to our cells that they cannot easily be removed. By the time we hit 60, most of us have accumulated a substantial amount of heavy metals in our system. When these levels get high enough (and that varies between people), they start to interfere with healing and cause disease.
Autoimmune conditions, kidney disease, memory defects, muscle weakness, and thyroid disorders all can have a heavy metal trigger. Recent studies have also shown a significant connection between toxic metals (especially lead and mercury) and Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
The good news is that the body is set up to remove these toxins through the action of the liver, kidney, lungs, skin and lymphatic system. At Forum Health, we have a variety of effective detoxification methods that will remove these harmful metals, helping your body to return to full and functioning good health.
