Heavy Metal Toxicity

Evaluating Risk Factors: Heavy Metal Poisoning

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as heavy metal toxicity — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

In the Environmental Risk Factors section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about heavy metal toxicity:
Have you ever been diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity other than mercury?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Tests have confirmed there is no problem
→ Yes, Mild
→ Yes, moderate
→ Yes, severe

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate being free of heavy metal toxicity, mild heavy metal toxicity, moderate heavy metal toxicity or severe heavy metal toxicity, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Parkinson's Disease

Metals such as iron, manganese, cadmium, copper, and mercury (from dental amalgams) have been implicated as causative factors in the development of Parkinson's disease.

Alzheimer's Disease

Because Alzheimer's patients often exhibit increased concentration of heavy metals in their blood and brain, toxic exposure is believed to play an important role.

Hypoglycemia

Heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead and thallium poison the glucose metabolizing catalysts, thus reducing the flow of energy throughout the body.  It is interesting to note that the symptoms of heavy metal poisoning are similar to symptoms associated with hypoglycemia i.e. hyperactivity, mood swings, manic depressive behavior, poor concentration and impulsive and unpredictable behavior.

Neuritis/Neuropathy

Arsenic and lead poisoning can cause neuritis.
