Aluminum toxicity ! Do you use aluminum foil to wrap food ?
Invisible, odorless, and virtually undetectable to us, heavy metals disrupt the body’s homeostasis and cause a variety of symptoms. The most common symptoms are chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, and there is some evidence that heavy metals may contribute to autoimmune diseases.
Out of all heavy metals, aluminum is the most commonly detected due to its mass level consumption in daily life.
It is present in tea, salts, spices, processed cheese, cake mixes, baby powder, lipstick, deodorants, nasal sprays, antacids, vaccines, and more. The aluminum cans used for canned food, soft drinks, beer, etc leech aluminum into its food, also the aluminum foil that we use to wrap your food in.
Other sources are:
- Buffered Aspirin
- Hemorrhoid Medications
- Anti-Diarrhea Medications
- Talcum Powder
This aluminum starts to accumulate in the body- into the kidneys, brain, lungs, liver, thyroid and can also inflame our colon, hence altering the normal functioning of the bowel. Aluminum competes with calcium for absorption and it can result in reduced skeletal mineralization. In infants, this leads to growth retardation. It also interferes with various other mineral absorption like -phosphorous, zinc, and selenium absorption. Its toxicity can cause malfunctioning of the Blood-Brain Barrier, Gastrointestinal Diseases, Parkinson’s Disease, Skin Problems, Mental Retardation in Infant, Learning Disorders in Children, Liver Disease as well.
How to get diagnosed?
- Oligoscan: It is spectrophotometric non-invasive testing that helps to detect metals and trace minerals in the body.
- Urine Testing for heavy metal
- Hair analysis
At Freedom Age, we get rid of the metal toxicity via various IV therapies, nutraceuticals, diet modification that varies from patient to patient.
