Heavy-Metals-DetoxDo You Have Unexplained Health Symptoms?

Do you Need To Do a Heavy Metals Detox?

Welcome to my Heavy Metals Detox Blog. With  20 years of experience, 9,000 reader emails and countless hours spent writing and researching this subject, you have come to the right place.

Here, I provide the information you will need to do a Chemical & Heavy Metals Detox in the Safest and Most Effective Way.

If you’d like to get an overview of the detox protocol that I did please Click Here and go to the bottom of this page to See My Eliminating Toxic Overload Safely eBook – Chapter Contents.

My second site page: The Symptoms, Sources and Risks of Heavy Metals, (found in the Main Menu Bar above), is worth reading as it covers my personal experiences with heavy metals toxicity and pathogen overload and how I resolved it by detoxing heavy metals safely and effectively.

I also recommend everyone to read my featured blog post: 9 Ways To Chelate Chemicals & Heavy Metals to give you a better understanding of the different types of chelation available.

Heavy metals and chemical toxicity can create critical and typically, undiagnosed health problems, as I found out to my costIt was in 1989, when I was finishing my B.Sc. Honours Degree, that I was first diagnosed with “Post Viral Fatigue. ” In reality it should have been called heavy metals poisoning. 

Due to a lack of understanding of environmental illnesses at the time, the doctors and specialists I saw didn’t know how to treat me and I was even written off as “psychosomatic” by one consultant at the Royal Free Hospital, London.

These failures led me to pursue irrelevant therapies that didn’t address the root issue of  my chemical and heavy metals toxicity.

“Fortunately” my heavy metals test results in 2000 revealed the main culprit, namely Lead, which was in “Off the Charts” — and Mercury which showed an elevated status. Consequently I also had the lowest Vitamin B status Biolab, near Harley Street in London, had ever seen, which helped explain why I was extremely depressed!

But even after tests doctors and alternative practitioners just didn’t know how to effectively detox heavy metals. Jump forward 15 years and by 2004, I’d ended up wasting about £20,000 following regimes that didn’t work. My goal should’ve been getting to the root cause of my health problems, namely:

Chemical and Heavy Metals Toxicity (specifically lead and mercury) and to stop:

Chasing symptoms which proved to be completely futile…

After many ineffective heavy metals detox treatments, I was fortunate enough to find an expert nutritionist and started on a Heavy Metals Detox Program that changed my life. I am passionate about informing people about environmental illness and the destructive effects of chemicals (e.g. from pesticides) and heavy metals.

There are sites on the net that tell you to “simply” jump right in with your heavy metals detox. They explain that you should take a heavy metals tests (proceed with caution) and start taking heavy metal chelators like DMSA and EDTA that remove toxic metals. I know because I get emails from people telling me that they used synthetic chelators to remove toxic metals and either got kidney aches, extreme fatigue, headaches and/or other unpleasant detox reactions.

Taking synthetic heavy metal chelators that remove toxic metals can be dangerous.

Did the doctor test your kidneys and liver first?

Did they consider the length of time you have been ill or whether you might have low kidney and/or liver function? You can permanently damage your kidneys using powerful synthetic chelators.

When I tried an EDTA detox it drained my energy so much that for next 2 or 3 days I wasn’t able to do much other than rest. That’s why I recommend natural and safe chelators like clinoptilolite zeolites.

Chelating too fast or aggressively (using high doses or low doses too frequently) IS NOT ADVISED. At best the result is that you will redistribute metals from one site in the body to another, flooding surrounding connective tissue near your kidneys/liver. At worst you could permanently damage your kidneys.

Heavy metals detoxing is also not a race. Jumping right into a heavy metals detox is like deciding to run a Marathon without any training:

Before considering a Heavy Metals Detox what questions should you be asking yourself?:

  1. Should I take a Provocation Test of 250mg to 500mg of DMPS (synthetic chelator)?

2. How do I know if my vitamin and mineral base are well established – which is essential is supporting my detox?

3. Are my kidneys and liver detoxification pathways able to cope?

4. Am I detoxing myself (adult) or is it a child that needs a heavy metals detox? Which relates to the next question:

5. Should I use a synthetic chelator for my heavy metal detox or more gentle but equally as effective natural ones like clinoptilolite zeolites?

If you’re in any doubt as to whether heavy metals might be causing your health problems, watch this video on amalgam fillings, which can cause serious problems for some people:

I spent over a decade and a half attempting to resolve my health issues which included chronic fatigue, brain fog, multiple chemical sensitivities, severe allergies and IBS.

I used many different complementary and established health therapies including:

Health Regimes I Tried:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Colonics, Parasite Cleanse, Bowel Cleanse
  • Nystatin (Anti-Fungal)
  • Blood Tests for Triglycerides, Immunoglobins and Glucose Levels
  • Dietary Avoidance Regimes
  • Allergy / Mast Tests
  • Food Combining
  • Vitamin Therapy
  • Thyroid Tests
  • Homeopathy
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Reverse Therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Anti-Depressants
  • Reverse Therapy
  • D.H.E.A. Hormones
  • Hair Mineral Analysis
  • Chinese / English Herbs
  • Mercury Fillings Extraction

NOTE about Mercury: When a “No Observable Effect Level” is registered with a substance, it means it has no biological effect upon the body. However even a minute amount of Mercury as low as 1 microgram of exposure is toxic to the body. When mercury is combined with bacterial activity (e.g. in the mouth), methyl mercury is produced which is an even more toxic substance that can be easily moved around and stored within the body.

When I first got ill, it felt like the flu. But then I became bed-ridden for the first year. I couldn’t lift my limbs as they felt like lead.

I had never heard about doing a heavy metals detox, so despite doing the therapies listed above, I continued to experienced the following symptoms:

My Chemical and Heavy Metals Detox Symptoms:

  • Lethargy / Tiredness – particularly after food
  • Weakness / Muscle Pain
  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Heavy Limbs
  • Spaced Out / Brain Fog
  • Memory Problems
  • Word Finding Difficulty
  • Concentration Issues
  • Memory Issues
  • Heavy Limbs
  • Joints Pains
  • Chronic Allergies
  • Food Cravings
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Night Sweating
  • Chemical Sensitivities
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Bloating / Stomach Cramps

It then took me 11 years to uncover my heavy metal toxicity as tests can prove inconclusive for reasons stated below. It took a further 6 years of doing an ineffective heavy metals detox before I finally learnt how to chelate heavy metals and without risking permanent kidney damage.

Be aware: There are many sites advertising products that “detox” heavy metals, some might work but form unstable bonds with metals ions which can cause damage as the metals are eliminated from the body, others can cause a lot of discomfort and pain e.g. in the kidneys and others still are simply ineffective.

Improvements in the nutritional base along with the removal of toxic heavy metals and chemicals and the pathogen overload associated with them (e.g. yeasts, parasites, bad bacteria and viruses) is a well established route suggested by many healthcare professionals. What isn’t taken into consideration is just how difficult the process actually is – I know because after 5 years of following the advice of a Harley Street doctor in London, my heavy metals levels didn’t come down.
