Fecal Metal Testing
Heavy metals toxicity caused by increasing levels of pollution and use of chemicals in industry is a growing threat to our and our children’s health. High levels of toxic metals deposited in body tissues and subsequently in the brain, may cause significant developmental and neurological damage.
Why fecal metal test?
Analysis of elements in feces provides indirect information about the potential for toxic metal burden. For many toxic metals, fecal excretion is the primary natural route of elimination from the body.
Evidence for the extent of exposure to mercury from dental amalgams is provided by the fact that fecal mercury levels are highly correlated with the number of amalgams in the mouth. It is also clear that fecal mercury levels for people with dental amalgams are remarkably similar from day to day, and approximately ten times higher than in people who do not have mercury amalgams.
Administration of pharmaceutical metal binding agents results in excretion of toxic metals primarily through the kidneys into the urine. In contrast, support of natural detoxification processes enhances the rate of excretion of toxic metals into the feces.
Heavy Metal Imbalances may produce symptoms like the following.
Many of the toxicity symptoms listed below are also signs that you could have developed any number of health conditions including autoimmune disease, liver and kidney disease, Crohn’s disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Leaky Gut Syndrome, and neuromusclular disorders.
