Toxic Metals – Could they be why you are sick?

Toxic metals are ubiquitous – they are in ‘silver’ tooth fillings (mercury), Venetian blinds and Christmas light cords (lead), children’s toys/jewelry (cadmium/lead), food (mercury, arsenic, cadmium), tobacco (arsenic, cadmium, thallium) and some drinking water (arsenic). These metals and others can accumulate in the body and exert toxic effects while using up valuable antioxidants. Some of the symptoms and diseases associated with toxic metals include:

  • Fatigue
  • Learning difficulties
  • Attention deficits
  • Muscle cramping
  • Cancer
  • Memory deficits
  • Mood disturbances (anger or depression)
  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Metallic taste
  • Muscle weakness
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Nervous system disorders

Most of us don’t even know we have these metals in our bodies or that we can store them for years. Specific testing can identify these metals. A process called chelation can safely remove these metals and provide an opportunity to heal from chronic disease. Please ask if you are interested in a toxic metal analysis. Dr. Rodgers is a certified chelation specialist.
