Toxic Heavy Metals and its Impact on Human Life
Human body has a highly effective immune system to attack
environmental toxins such as environment pollution, cigarette smoke, and
radiation from the sun. Heavy metals are a cluster of toxic intruders
that can get past the body's defences to cause heath disorders of
epidemic proportion. Many household items can cause metal poisoning and
change the normal brain functioning, so it is essential to be aware of
where these toxins are found and what you need to do to avoid them
entering your system.
Chemicals are part of our daily life. All living and non-living
matter is made up of chemicals and almost every manufactured product
involves the use of chemicals. Many chemicals when properly used can
contribute to the improvement of our quality of life, health and
well-being. But other chemicals are highly hazardous and can have
negative effect on our health and environment when it is not used
Heavy metal toxicity can disturb your brain chemistry causing depression and anxiety, it can also significantly weaken your immune system. Once you’ve detoxified the heavy metals, you may recover your health or respond to other appropriate treatments.
It is mostly food consumption and air that we inhale that are the main sources of exposure to metals,
because metals in the soil and water can easily enter the food chain.
Other common sources of exposure include consumer products, industrial
waste, and workplace environment.
There are 35 metals that can damage our body of which 23 of them are
called heavy metals that are antimony, arsenic, bismuth, cadmium,
cerium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gallium, gold, iron, lead, manganese,
mercury, nickel, platinum, silver, tellurium, thallium, tin, uranium,
vanadium, and zinc. And these metals are classified as heavy metals with
a specific gravity that is at least five times more than that of water.
The metals that are considered to be dangerous to the body are mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic and aluminium. These metals are not of significant use to the body.
Many people have an excessive amount of heavy metals stored in their
body, contributing to various disease and symptoms. Large amounts of
these metals in the body lead to toxicity, and greatly impact your
mental health, the normal functioning of vital organs, fatigue, and
according to various research findings, many serious diseases like Alzheimer’s, Cancer, Sclerosis and Parkinson’s are also caused due to toxic heavy metals.
Detoxifying heavy metals involves balancing mineral antagonists which
dislodge the metals from the tissues into the blood with chelating
agents that bind the metals in the blood and prevent them from being
re-deposited somewhere else so the kidneys can excrete them. Regular
detoxification techniques like fasting, the liver flush, kidney
cleansers etc., might not work with heavy metals.
Mercury is a very common household product such as thermostats,
fluorescent light bulbs, barometers, glass thermometers, and blood pressure
devices. If the glass or metal that contains mercury are either damaged
or broken, then there is a possibility that the mercury can spill out
and release into the air.
Health effects caused by long-term exposure to mercury are Anxiety,
Sleeping problems, Loss of appetite, Irritability, Fatigue,
Forgetfulness, Tremors, Changes in vision, Changes in hearing among
Some of the most common factors that cause heavy metal toxicity are exposure to toxic air that we breathe, water and food.
- Mercury from water, thermometers, thermostats and teeth amalgams are some of the major causes for consuming toxic heavy metals.
- Lead from pipes, drains and smouldering materials.
- Arsenic that is released into the environment in the making of
chemicals and glasses, and by the smelting process of copper, zinc and
Toxic metals have the tendency to bioaccumulate in the body and in
the food chain. Therefore, a common characteristic of toxic metals is
the chronic nature of their toxicity. This is particularly prominent
with radioactive heavy metals such as radium, which imitates calcium
that blends into human bone, although similar health issues are found in
lead or mercury poisoning. The exceptions to this are barium and
aluminium, which can be removed efficiently by the kidneys.
There are no safe levels for heavy metals, mercury in particular is
the second most toxic metal known to man, second only to plutonium and
even in extremely low concentrations or parts per million can strongly
lower your health.
Heavy metal toxicity can have a wide range of negative effects.
Mercury, can cause depression and add to anxiety; mercury and cadmium
can significantly reduce your immune system. Amalgam fillings still
present a significant risk of mercury poisoning, mercury toxicity can
also cause allergies.
Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics and hormones are in
most of the food we eat unless we eat organic. Besides, processed food
that we consume is concentrated with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides,
hormones and antibiotics. It is full of preservatives and other
chemicals. If consumed in a concentrated form can be fatal. With the
ever changing life style and the new pattern of cooking, the containers
that we routinely use are full of chemicals that can leak into the food
that it is preserved in.
Some of the common symptoms are Fatigue, Muscle aches, Joint
pain, Sinus congestion, Postnasal drip, Excessive sinus problems, Skin
problems, Headaches, Bloating, Gas, Food cravings, Constipation,
Diarrhea, Foul-smelling stools, Heartburn, Sleep problems, Difficulty
concentrating, Water retention, rouble losing weight, Rashes, Eczema,
Psoriasis, Canker sores, Acne, Puffy, dark circles under your eyes,
Premenstrual syndrome, Other menstrual disorders and Bad breath.
Electromagnetic Radiation and its effect on Human Brain
The density of electromagnetic pollution we are exposed to has risen
multiple times in the last three decades. Cell phone and Wifi that carry
signals emit coherent signal, and has the ability to interfere with the
cells of the body. Cells have many receptors that respond to the same
frequency as cell phones use. Cell Phone signals can stimulate these
receptors, causing some functions of the cell to be up or down
These signals can disrupt the minute connections between cells and
damage their ability to communicate with each other. The cellular
locking up that takes place traps more heavy metals and free radicals
into the cells which in turn makes them tightly bound within. Hence, the
normal channels in the cell membranes do not open enough to allow
mercury and other metals to exit.
Free radicals can disturb the normal structure and functioning of the
cell and the heavy metals to cause stress, death or altered function
within the cell. Heavy metal toxicity can increase electrical
conductance in the brain to make the effect of cell phone radiation
Cell phone and wireless radiation also cause the blood brain barrier
to leak further, hence, increasing the toxin load to the brain further.
Cell phone signals also causes the red blood cells to become hyper with
each other, hence the cells becomes ten times more attractive towards
each other. This in turn can increase the growth of unwanted
precipitates in various tissues and organs, such as the eye. The effect
on red blood cells may well affect other cells and could be the
mechanism of damage by cell phone radiation.
There are two types of radiation. They are ionizing and non-ionizing
radiation. The ionizing radiation is more damaging because it is of a
higher energy than non-ionizing radiation and produces charged particles
called ions, either negative ions or positive ions. Ionizing radiation
is produced from nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors, medical and dental
x-rays, and is also used to irradiate food.
The non-ionizing radiation includes electromagnetic radiation
produced by electric current, radio waves, microwave ovens, radar
stations, television, video display terminals (VDT's) computers, high
voltage lines, infrared and fluorescent lights, and sunlamps for example
tanning booths which emit ultraviolet light.
Lead poisoning particularly disturbs GABA balance, this
neurotransmitter enables the brain to inhibit persistent thoughts going
around and when GABA becomes deficient it can contribute to anxiety.
Lead also dulls your intelligence.
Lead, cadmium (from smoking) and arsenic disturb dopamine, this
neurotransmitter gives the brain energy, motivation and the capacity for
pleasure. When it becomes deficient, you can get a low energy
Mercury, lead and aluminium disturb acetylcholine, this neurotransmitter gives the brain a sharpness and good memory.
There are four possible ways for mercury poisoning to reach human system
i.e., Passed from mother to baby; Vaccinations; Dental Amalgams or
Silver Fillings; Contraception Pills and Contact Lens Solution.
Mother to Baby
Expecting mothers with mercury in her body can easily be passed on to
her baby. The level of mercury in the tissue of the foetus, new-born,
and young children is directly proportional to the number of silver
fillings in the mother’s mouth.
Even today approximately 25% of vaccines contain mercury.
Flu shots contain mercury. When mercury is removed from flu shots, it
is replaced with other toxic chemicals such as aluminium and
Mercury is used as a preservative in vaccinations. Flu shots also
contain mercury, as a preservative. According to the EPA (Environmental
Protection gency) on an average a child can tolerate 0.3 micrograms of
Dental Amalgams or Silver Fillings
Amalgam fillings leech methyl-mercury into your body. Methyl-mercury
is dangerous as it’s attracted to tissues and other organs and can
actually cross the blood brain barrier and get into your brain.
Activities such as brushing your teeth and drinking hot liquids can
increase your exposure to methyl-mercury from 10 to 100 times.
Some key benefits of Chelation
Chelation therapy helps to extract heavy metals from damaged hearts
and heart valves and organs like blood vessels, kidneys, and other vital
organs. This therapy has helped to pull out calcifications from
arteries even when it is considered to be an impossible task.
Zeocell Chelatox uses calcium-disodium EDTA
EDTA has a proven track record of reversing all sorts of
cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, congestive heart failure,
angina, and arrhythmias, it also helps in dissolving occlusive plaques
that blocks important neck, heart and leg vessels and where surgery was
contraindicated. It also removes cholesterol plaque and lowers
cholesterol. EDTA is the ingredient they put in blood tubes in the
laboratory to keep blood from prematurely clotting. EDTA is so safe that
it has been FDA approved for over 40 years.
Atherosclerosis is identified to be the primary cause for heart
attack and strokes. The endothelium is the inner lining of blood
vessels. This lining tissue generates the powerful arterial vessel
dilator nitric oxide (N.O.). The endothelium also produces prostacyclin
which helps to slow down the clotting of blood and also causes
beneficial dilating of arteries. The third important endothelial product
is heparin which prevents clots from forming without causing bleeding.
Excessive deposition of heavy metals in the endothelium diminishes the
endothelium's ability to produce nitric oxide, prostacyclin, and
Chelation appears to restore the body's ability to create the
important substances, Nitric Oxide (N.O.), prostacyclin and heparin, by
removing these metals from the endothelial lining.
One of these problem metals, mercury, is known to cause damage to
enzymes so mercury removal should be beneficial. Removal of these metals
appears to result in improved delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the
tissues of the body.
Some important benefits of Chelation
Chelation prevents or stops ateriosclerosis (hardening of the
arteries) by dropping the free radical generating toxic metals and
stimulating parathyroid hormone (PTH) activity which helps in removal of
calcium and plaque build-up.
EDTA has strong antibiotic effects of its own and
through its profound bacterial biofilm disrupting effects that can
revolve MultiDrug-Resistant (MDR) microorganisms into anti-resistant
ones, influencing the lifesaving role of EDTA.
It supports anti-aging effects and energy: Chelation helps in increasing the life span;
Increases NO (nitric oxide) levels to relax the blood vessels and also
to activate stem cells differentiation; Saves cells mitochondria that
results in the production of more ATP and help in boosting the overall
energy. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome benefits are provided from chelation.
Chelation is helpful in prostate enlargement and prostate cancer with
a broad spectrum of 'natural antibotic and antiviral' characteristic,
which can reverse impotence and reduce need for diuretics.
It is also helpful to improve taste, hearing and vision abilities;
post-cataract surgery vision loss can be restored; Removes small
cataracts; Reduces macular de-generation; improves vision in diabetic
Cosmetic changes: Helpful in increasing the hair
volume, adds sparkle to the eyes, strengthens unspilt nails, improves
skin color, texture and tone, fewer visible wrinkles, lightens age spots
and offers a more youthful appearance.
Rejuvenates the whole cardiovascular system: Reduces
blood pressure, cholesterol levels and blood cholesterol levels; Chest
pain (angina pectoris) in 19 out of 20 patients is enhanced; Controls
cardiac arrhythmias, rapid heartbeats, skipped beats and extra
Helps in the overall psychological and emotional status, reduces anxiety, depression and hyperactivity.
It also helps to stabilise hormones that reduces or eliminates the
need for hormone replacements, normalizes proper distribution and right
amount of minerals and vitamins (which are blocked by the accumulation
of toxins), enzymes start functioning properly.
Helps in retaining a healthy, normal distribution of essential
nutritional minerals and metallic elements (chromium, cobalt, zinc,
etc.) within the cells. A spectrum of such metals accumulates the toxic
levels in both diseased and stressed cells.
Reduces allergic symptoms particularly if EDTA is consumed with glutathione. Advanced in reducing inflammation over steroids and controls weight.
Damages the higher metal levels 'micro-antenna' effects of EMF
(electromagnetic field) radiation released by cell phones, cell phone
towers, WiFi, microwave ovens, etc which are more destructive in the
body. Keeping the metal levels low in the body (with chelation) to avoid
the negative effects to EMF is the best preventive step.
For clear mind (Alzheimer's Disease) :
Improves memory and mental concentration and reduces the symptoms of
forgetfulness and senility; recently a study concluded that Autistic
patients have raised toxic metals. Improves kidney function; dissolves
kidney stones and reduces varicose veins. Reduces aches and pains,
arthritic and otherwise, less dependence on pain medication; prevents
osteoarthritis; A Swiss study reported a 90% reduction in cancer
mortality after using chelation.
Strongest Anti-Candida effect: EDTA demonstrated the
highest antifungal activity in comparison with antifungal drugs such as
nystatin and ketoconazole. Due to the interaction between Candida and
toxic heavy metals, it is hard to get rid of Candida without the removal
of the toxic metals first.
Cold extremities are warmed, Reduces serum iron levels, Reduces
insulin usage in diabetic, saves legs in diabetic ulcers and increases
the healing power of lower leg infections and gangrene, Supports as a
pre-operative preparation due to increased tissue oxigenation, Improves
cellular nutritional status and helps in faster post-operative recovery.
Chelation is important before any stem cell treatment as a
- detoxified bone marrow
- detoxified stem cells, and
- detoxified target organ are paramount for the success of any stem cell treatment; Provides relief from leg muscle cramps
Zeocell Grapefruit Seed
Extract (GSE) has very high amounts of disease-fighting, free-radical
eliminating antioxidants and phytonutrients called bioflavonoids. One of
these powerful bioflavanoids (plant antioxidants) include the chemical
component hesperidin, a well-known natural immune-system stimulator and
Chemical analysis of grapefruit seed extract shows additional
antioxidant constituents including Vitamin C, sterols, tocopherols,
citric acid, liminoids, and other trace minerals. Perhaps most exciting
in regard to GSE's health benefits is its anti-cancer potentials.
Studies done on the compounds in GSE's seed and pulp have found that
these bioactive agents may be able to inhibit the occurrence of colon
A recent study done by Microbiologists from the University of Georgia
found that GSE was a very effective non-toxic disinfectant. Sadly,
commonly-used disinfectant have high levels of toxicity and are harmful
to humans, animals and the environment. The same study found that GSE
demonstrates a "wide spectrum of activity," including antiviral,
antimycotic, and antiprotozoan capacities against many bacteria and
viruses, including E.Coli.¹ It was also found to be an effective
cleanser as a a pre-surgical soap.
Another recent study from The Journal of Alternative and
Complementary Medicine found that grapefruit-seed extract was effective
in killing over "800 bacterial and viral strains, 100 strains of fungus,
and a large number of single and multi-celled parasites."² No other
naturally-occuring anti-microbial can come close to these results.
An excellent extract to have on hand while traveling into foreign
countries, GSE acts as a natural germ-killer and an effective
preventative mechanism for food borne illnesses that cause diarrhea and
dysentery. It is also useful for our pets, and can be applied in both
internal and external infections of the skin, including fleas. It is
also highly useful for the modern eco-conscious gardener, and can used
to remove fungus and mold from tools and supplies. It is also a great
bug and plant spray. Grapefruit seed extract can be used to clean
surfaces and even sprinkled into soaps for an added anti-microbial and
