Metals Testing Series Part 1: Is Heavy Metal Toxicity Ruining Our Health?
Toxic metals can be found in our food and water, environmental pollutants, and through occupational exposure with the most toxic and common metals being mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead. These dangerous metals have the potential to accumulate in the body causing a wide range of health issues and symptomology. They can disrupt the body’s natural processes by affecting: mitochondrial function, stress hormone production, and adrenal function, thyroid T4/T3 conversion, brain function, immune system regulation, virus susceptibility, reduced glutathione stores, increased inflammation, and reduced detoxification. Ongoing exposure can leave patients struggling with chronic fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, and mood dysregulation.
In part 1 of our testing webinar series, Dr. Shade discusses heavy metal toxicity and why it is imperative to test, especially when chronic conditions persist. He’ll explain how to utilize Quicksilver’s patented Mercury Tri-Test and the Heavy Metals Panel to assess toxin levels in patients and how best to support detoxification of heavy metals.
