Maybe, the most important article I’ve ever written. I’m dead serious.
It certainly has taken me the longest, and by that I mean, it’s been 1 year in the making. This article has been the culmination of one years worth of work on MYSELF. But in actuality this article has been brewing for 14 years. Do NOT take this lightly, like I did that many years ago.
I’ve been in practice 17+ years and in that time the world and healthcare has changed a lot.
What would you say if I told you, I could do a lab test on you, and I could guarantee you’d fail? I have 100% of patients with this problem. No one has ever passed. Not even ME.
Now, what if I told you that same test could reveal a major risk factor for a disease with NO cure, none. 1 out of 9 of us will get this disease and the rates double about every 5 years. The one and only solution is to try and prevent it. Would you want to know that?
That question will separate the healthy from the sick. If you are overwhelmed by that possibility of knowledge, it’s best to stop reading now, because your life will never be the same by the end.
Health is a blessing, ask any one who’s lost it. I’m afraid every year it becomes more work and the people in charge are working very hard to take it from you. The only way for you to make a difference is to take responsibility for you. You are the only one who can.
Back in September, I talked about toxicity and the importance of dealing with it on a daily basis and if you’ve never done that, you should do the purification program, now or next January.
I have purposely avoided talking about heavy metal toxicity because I had to wait until October to get my last test results back. I was like a kid waiting for Christmas morning, nervous and excite all at once. Was it going to be better, or was it going to be worse?
So… what are toxic heavy metals?
Back in August of 1979, the EPA put out a 300 page report with over 400 studies of toxic metals in the environment. The stated that toxic metals were the second worst environmental health problem in the US.
These metals (lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury, and aluminum) are used in big industries, and ironically in food production. They are carelessly spread through the air, water, and land.
It matters to you because the toxic metals replace normal minerals in enzyme binding sites and cause physiologic dysfunctions. For example aluminum can replace magnesium in your brain.
One of the most troubling things I’ve learned about toxic metals is that they can be passed from Mother to child.
Let me show you a sampling of test results for people I tested, anonymously of course.
What do you notice? Every one has some heavy metal showing up. Every one has Aluminum. These are toxic and poisonous to your body.
- They took lead out of paint because it was getting in people.
- You’ve probably heard of people being murdered by arsenic poisoning.
- They took mercury out of thermometers because the risks were too high if they broke.
And now we have aluminum, which is every where. It natural occurs in land, air, and sea, but the levels in humans are rapidly rising, unnaturally. The toxicity of these metals has been known for a long time.
I have been fortunate to have done hair analysis for 14 years. Hair is the best way to evaluate your long term exposure to heavy metals, blood is not. You accumulate toxins over time if your diet and lifestyle aren’t good enough to allow your body to get rid of them. This is called bioaccumulation.
Toxic metals accumulate when your healthy mineral intake is low, or when you are excessively exposed in unnatural ways. You can not stop or avoid your exposure to heavy metals, but you can alter your mineral intake. I’ll show you how I did it later.
I did not realize the extent of this exposure until last year (2014). Here is my heavy metal exposure starting in 2001.
2001 2003 2004
Aluminum .5 .39 .59
Lead .01 .02 .04
Arsenic .019 .01 .024
Mercury .01 .01 .01
Two things to notice.
#1 I have 4 heavy metals showing up every year…
#2 They are all fairly consistent, but starting to increase in 2004.
Back then, it was frustrating to see them, but I didn’t have a plan to get rid of them and they were so low, I figured it couldn’t be that bad. I felt great. I was busy with a business, and a new baby. 2004 was a crazy time for me.
Life moved on, primarily because I didn’t know better and I was already living a very clean lifestyle and had an excellent whole food diet. I didn’t have any of the risk factors. It was puzzling to me, but I didn’t have any answers, so I let it go.
Fast forward 10 years. Last year I felt this strong urge to do another hair analysis. I hadn’t done it for awhile and want to check things out.
Whoa, I was surprised, mad, and now on a mission.
Here’s Sept. 2014.
Look at my aluminum level. I was shocked. My first thought was, “what the heck is going on?”
My big question.
Why is my aluminum so high now?
Now what am I going to do about it? I can’t let this continue.
You might be thinking, “why is aluminum so bad? My soda cans are made from it.”
Well, this is where it gets really, really interesting. I use Analytical Research Laboratory for the hair testing because they are the oldest lab and have done the lion’s share of the research. Translation…they know a lot.
Here’s what they have to say about, “How Aluminum Affects Health”. I’m going to paraphrase the lab results you get in a test.
In the NERVOUS system. Aluminum blocks nerve signals and reduces nerve activity. It inhibits enzymes in your brain. (remember that) It also may inhibit dopamine, adrenaline, and tryptophan.
Aluminum is known neurotoxin.
It’s a known problem from kidney dialysis that dementia can occur. It’s related to aluminum toxicity that causes memory loss, loss of coordination, and confusion. Are Alzheimer’s and dementia on the rise?
Aluminum also decreases the activity of your intestines. So things like flatulence, colic, heartburn, and an aversion to meat are common.
This problem is bigger than I could ever imagine. This email could go on for a really long time, so we’ll pick it up next week with the rest of my lab results and how I got it to go down.
I nearly erased 10 years of toxicity. I’ll show you how.
We will also cover where all of these heavy metals are coming from. One source you will not want to believe, but it’s real, and it’s scary, and you absolutely can’t avoid it. So we’ll talk about what to do to combat it.
P.S. If this is something you want to test for yourself, it’s cheap and easy. Hair analysis is $69 and you just cut some hair. The bang for your buck is incredible.
