Met with a patient today and reviewed her Urinary Toxic Metals lab report. She has 7 metals showing on her report with mercury and lead into the very high exposure column.
Her occupation: Dental Assistant.
Her husband's occupation: Dentist
In her mouth: Mercury Amalgams (since removed and replaced with porcelin)
You tell me.
Her husband doesn't think so. My goodness man - wake up.
She has been on a 6 month protocol removing lead, mercury and the other 5 metals. However, the natural protocol is not working that well. Either she is constantly re-exposing herself to these toxic metals or the natural protocol which she is following is not potent enough. She seems healthy enough to do a full heavy metal detox as her energy level is decent, albumin level is about 4.2, her thyroid level is stable, her cholesterol levels are good and she is sleeping well.
I recently read a report where a MD was chelating a patient's heavy metals with chlorella. After one month of chelating, the MD ran another urine toxic metals test - and to their surprise, the metals were even more elevated. Chelated another month with the chlorella and again - same thing - even more elevated. Typically, heavy metal chelation will show a reduction of the toxic metals after a couple months.
The MD analyzed the chlorella, removed the patient from the chlorella and then re-tested again in one month. The heavy metals went down. The chlorella was full of mercury and lead. Careful what supplements you prescribe, docs. Folks, be careful of what you ingest - there are a lot of crap products out there.
If you work in a profession that deals with heavy metals - realize your exposure is cummulative. Realize that in order to remove those toxic heavy metals it takes a nourished liver, sweatiing, preventing re-exposure and specific supplementation that chelates metals.
Heavy metal exposures in professions - name a few:
- some lab techs
- hardware manufacturers
- manufacturing facilities of many kinds
- et al
