Heavy Metals

Heavy Metals are natural components that have a high molecular weight, five times heavier in density than water. They can be found in different forms and they cannot be eliminated or degraded. Out of the 35 most common heavy metals, we can say that approximately 20 of them are toxic, becoming very harmful for the human health when they accumulate in the body. Amongst these we can find: arsenic, antimony, thallium, and lead.

There are other metals that have essential functions in our organism and that in the right amounts do not product any kind of harm, though large amounts of them can cause fatal damage, just like zinc, lead, cobalt, selenium, iron, and magnesium.

The toxicity of heavy metals can affect different organs and systems of the body (specially at cellular level), it is important the clarify that our body is not capable of metabolizing them, each metal has a mechanism to act that is different than the other, therefore its accumulation, symptoms, and damage are different. Amongst these we find damage in brain functions, in the kidneys, the central nervous system, muscles, blood composition, and liver amongst other vital organs.

The symptoms and causes very much depend on the level of intoxication, but they may include fragile hair, conduct changes, depression, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, memory loss, vomit, diarrhea, dermatitis, migraines, and head aches.

The way in which these metals enter the body, is through the mouth, skin, or by breathing them, through our eating habits, water sources, pollution, industrial processes, cigarettes, dyes, cosmetics, sun block, etc.

To get to know how your body is doing when it comes to the toxicity of heavy metals, at Quick Balance we will make a blood test to get to understand your state and to accompany you to balance your levels, helping you improve your health and a obtain overall wellness.
