Heavy Metal Toxicity Q & A

What are heavy metals?

Heavy metals are substances naturally found in the environment that have an atomic weight heavier than water. Examples of heavy metals include:

  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Cadmium
  • Arsenic
  • Thallium
  • Antimony

While these substances are natural elements in the environment, they’re also used in a wide variety of industries, including agricultural,  medical, and industrial, and you’ve been exposed to these metals every day. Common everyday sources of these toxic substances include seafood, dental fillings, medicine, and cigarette smoke.

What are the symptoms of heavy metal toxicity?

Heavy metals mimic many illnesses because of the wide variety of symptoms they produce. You can have an acute, overwhelming exposure or you may be exposed gradually over a period of time. Unfortunately, you may not develop any overt symptoms when you have heavy metal toxicity, or you may mistake your symptoms for another health issue.

Common symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Heart problems
  • Anemia

If you’re experiencing these symptoms or suspect overexposure to heavy metals, the Full Circle Natural Medical Clinic can conduct an evaluation to determine the cause of your symptoms.

Chelation therapy

During infusion chelation therapy, Your doctor infuses chelating agents into your body to grab the heavy metals from your blood and then eliminate them through normal body processing. To fully rid your body of toxic substances, you may need to undergo several infusion treatments.
