Our body is exposed to many forms of heavy metals from the environment. Examples of these heavy metals are mercury, lead, arsenic, silver, copper, aluminium and many more. Unfortunately for our body, the accumulation of these heavy metals is dangerous and causing insidious illnesses.
To make matter worse, chronic accumulation of heavy metals weakens the body immune system and healing ability. This is how chronic diseases develop and eventually manifest in our body.
The sources of heavy metals are plenty. The most obvious are emissions from motor vehicles and cigarettes. Other sources are contamination from treated building materials in houses and offices, contaminated water and treated and processed foods.
It takes years for these metals to be accumulated. Consequently, the effects are not obvious and because of this fact, heavy metals are not routinely attributed as causes of chronic illnesses. Furthermore, testing for heavy metals accumulation is often difficult and expensive.
Heavy metals are often not blamed for diseases because it is difficult to prove and treatments are not necessarily available in conventional medicines. However, every anti-aging practitioner knows that they are there and they are causing havoc.
