Dr. David Minkoff, founder of BodyHealth.com, proudly launches the Metal-Free Heavy Metal Detoxification Program. This program is a series of steps and dietary supplements that will safely eliminate heavy metals from your body so it can heal. The toxicity of heavy metals is very insidious and works on the magnifying effects principle. In toxicology, as a second toxin is added to one that is already present, the toxic effect on the body is not just twice as bad, but often 100 times as bad. If one is experiencing fatigue, headaches, loss of memory, hair loss, bad breath, loose teeth, constipation, diarrhea, tremors, or has unexplained symptoms, heavy metals could be at the root of the problem as they block the absorption of vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients on a cellular level.
Heavy metals are mercury, lead, arsenic, copper, nickel, aluminum, antimony, beryllium, bismuth, platinum, thallium, tungsten, and uranium. "I don't have any of that in my body," one might say. Dr. Minkoff will hear this and ask these questions. Do you have any silver (amalgam) fillings? Do you smoke cigarettes? Are you often near second hand cigarette smoke? Do you drink tap water? Do you eat non-organic food? Do you eat a lot of fish? Do you live near any industrial areas, gas stations, dry cleaners or in a city with smog? Do you work at an industrial site or factory? Has your home or lawn been sprayed with pesticides? This is only a short list of where one might have come into contact with heavy metals.
In today's environment heavy metals are in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. They enter our bodies though the skin, lungs and the digestive tract. There's no escaping them. Terrifying, but true. If you've any doubts, you only need to surf the Environmental Protection Agency Website http://www.EPA.gov or The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry at http://www.ATSDR.cdc.gov where you can find hundreds of pages of information and a database to help you find any toxic sites in your own neighborhood.
The Metal-Free Heavy Metal Detoxification program is based around Metal-Free, which is a dietary supplement that forms a strong bond with heavy metals to safely remove them from the body via the stool. Metal-Free is a non-drug, non-alcohol, dietary supplement that works 30-50 percent faster than other chelating agents. It is absorbed through oral ingestion and has little or no detoxification symptoms. Recognized laboratories have been used for sample analyses to demonstrate the reduction of heavy metals in the body when Metal-Free was used.
To more rapidly remove heavy metals the body needs a superior source of protein as well as a good source of vitamins, minerals and whole foods. Another vital step of the program is a supplement to ensure that the heavy metals and toxins move through the intestines and out of the body via the stool at least daily. Two to three easy stools per day is desirable.
The program offers an inexpensive personal test kit if one wants to test for heavy metals and a health questionnaire that can be downloaded for a list of possible sites of exposure.
While there is no escaping contact with heavy metal toxins, there is something you can do to get rid of them today. For more information visit http://www.bodyhealthdetox.com/metal-free/index.asp.
