Effects of heavy metals


The last eight years, thirty-eight-year-old Sarah had experienced severe pain in the lower back and hip joints. She appealed to many doctors and specialists. She had antibodies to the nuclei of her cells. One doctor, who could not explain the cause of the pain to her, nevertheless diagnosed: spondylitis with loss of joint mobility is a form of autoimmune arthritis. Painkillers and anti-inflammatories, as well as injections of steroids have become a part of Sarah's life. In the end, she was recommended a course of chemotherapy to inactivate the immune system. Under the influence of a natural instinct, she rejected this recommendation and turned to me for help.
One of my questions confused her. I asked if she had a silver amalgam filler in her mouth. It turned out, there is. Then it turned out that she likes sushi, which, as is known, can contain heavy metals. The results of the tests showed toxic levels of mercury and arsenic in her body. We do not know why one person is more sensitive to the influence of one or another factor than another, but she clearly needed treatment. Without offering her to stop the chemotherapy course, I advised him to interrupt for a few months and try a different approach, because she had been in pain for eight years already, and the previous treatment did not have a positive effect. She agreed.
Molecules carrying an electrical charge cause irritation and damage and contribute to the oxidation process. These are the most notorious oxidants, of which so much is said. An example of an oxidation process is what happens to a metal when it rusts. These molecules are neutralized by antioxidants, which abound in raw vegetables and fruits.
Mercury, which is a toxic metal, is known as the "great simulator". It can cause a chain of reactions that eventually lead to mental disorders, cancer, autoimmune diseases, anemia and many other ailments.

Mercury, like any other toxic metals, can be your daily companion of life, which you most likely do not even suspect.
See the table in the annex "Unexpected sources of heavy metals"
Sarah conducted a three-week purification program and then began an oral heavy metal poisoning treatment course using a chemical agent called DMSA, binding heavy metals and eliminating them. (This is a long-term treatment, it should be performed under the supervision of a specialist and under a certain regime, so that useful minerals are returned to the body that are released together with heavy metals during treatment). After half a course of grayish skin of her face acquired a pink hue, and the pain in the joints began to subside. Optimism returned to her, she felt healthy and began to look much better than before. At the time of writing these lines, the course of her treatment has not yet ended, and we are waiting for its completion in order to find out whether the production of antibodies will resume.
If you suffer from a chronic illness that is stalling your doctor, it is too long to cure or give in, but another set of symptoms comes to replace it, find a specialist in functional medicine so that he can help you undergo the necessary alternative examination.
Each of the above examples describes how a toxic molecule of one type or another disrupts the body's ability to maintain its own balance necessary for a healthy life. We know the mechanism of action of any toxin mentioned in this book. It is even possible that scientists will one day understand how each of them affects the chemistry of the body. But what is for sure impossible, is it someday to understand in detail how toxins interact with each other, finding themselves in the same organism.

Effects of heavy metals

  1. HEAVY METALS
    John W. Graef, Frederick G. Lovejoy, Jr. (John W. Graef, Frederick H. Lovejoy, Jr.) Arsenic Source. Inorganic compounds of arsenic - arsenic anhydride, arsenic anhydride, arsenite of sodium and potassium - are part of injectables, poisons against rodents, fungicides, agents for protecting wooden products from rot, herbicides and solutions used in the production
  2. The main manifestations in the oral cavity of chronic intoxication with heavy metals
    With mild intoxication with salts of heavy metals (lead, bismuth, mercury), catarrhal stomatitis usually occurs with areas of pigmentation of the mucous membrane (primarily the gingival margin). In severe cases, ulcers develop, characterized by persistent flow. In addition to soreness in the oral cavity, violation of salivation and sensation of metallic taste, general weakness, apathy,
  3. Biological absorption of heavy metals in separate links of the trophic chain "plant - bee - bee products"
    Filippov AS, Mikhailova AI Scientific adviser: Ph.D., Associate Professor Shakirova SS. FSEI HPE "Ural State Academy of Veterinary Medicine", Troitsk Recently, more often offer to use bees in the system of environmental monitoring. The main argument is that bees actively collect nectar and pollen over a large area within a radius of 3 km, and the content of heavy metals in their body
  4. Metals
    The contaminants considered fall into food raw materials and products in the following ways: 1. In the areas where metal or other ores are located, the soil is contaminated with the relevant elements, and then the plant products are contaminated. The half-life of cadmium from the body is 13-40 years. The lethal dose of cadmium for humans is 150 mg / kg body weight. More than half of the cadmium we receive from
  5. Coating by sputtering and in metal melts
    In this section, specific indices of emissions of harmful substances are given when applying anticorrosive coatings, which are carried out by: - ​​electric arc method with the organization of plating sites in special chambers or in assembly (workshop) conditions using electrometallicators (manual electric arc devices of increased reliability, for example, EM-12M , EM-14 M, EM-17 M).
  6. Metal / scurf - organic residues
    Types of surface changes {foto26} Areas of closure / hinge clean Cause: Wash in the open. {foto27} Remains of blood in the area of ​​the closure / hinge Reason: Cleaning in the closed state. Rust and / or blood rashes are common. Immediately after the operation from the remnants of the operation (blood, proteins), from the remnants of table salt, from the remnants of drugs. Origin and causes | Desiccation
  7. Calculation of emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere from metalworking machines
    The calculation is carried out according to the "Method for calculating the emissions (emissions) of 3B into the atmosphere during the mechanical treatment of metals (in terms of specific emissions)." Mechanically exposed metals, alloys, nonmetals. For cold processing of materials use turning, milling, grinding, grinding, drilling and other machine tools. A characteristic feature of the processes of mechanical
  8. Metal / scurf - staining / discoloration of colored plasma layers
    Types of surface changes {foto37} Example: black, TiAIN-coated stamp. Variegated shiny discoloration or complete absence of coating with unaltered gilded components (end screw, springs) {foto38} Stamp: new Origin and causes Surface reaction under the action of detergent solutions with the addition of hydrogen peroxide and / or washing solution, for example with high
  9. Metal / scurf - residues of process chemicals
    Depending on the size of the residue, the type of tool and the nature of the surface, light to dark gray patches / stains or spots may appear. Their visual distinguishability can still increase after sterilization. Types of surface changes {foto28} Hollow handle with visible remnants {foto29} Loading trolley suitable for washing and rinsing ophthalmic instruments {foto30}
  10. Metal / plaque - calcareous stains from water
    Types of surface changes {foto31} Wash chamber with lime deposits Consequence: tools with traces of lime Scale / coloring from milky white to gray. Depending on the situation, large or irregular spots with an edge on the surface of the instrument or washing / disinfecting plants. Too high lime content in water during cleaning or last rinse.
  11. Metal / plaque - blackening due to oxidation
    Types of surface changes {foto34} Sampling - Titanium tires: The left tire is new, from the factory. Right tire - after machine wash. Usually, the color changes evenly. However, it can also be in the form of spots / different colors. {foto35} Clamp detail: retainer and ring area {foto36} Wounded hook with black-colored Cr-steel stem and the remaining clean handle and sheet from
  12. Metal / plaque - silicates and other mineral compounds
    Types of surface changes {foto32} Typical silicate painting of the washing chamber and the surface of instruments due to the use of a silicate containing cleaner or an increased silicic acid content in water {foto33} Typical staining of instruments with silicates after steam sterilization due to the increased content of silicic acid in completely desalted
  13. Forging - pressing, stamping production and heat treatment of metals
    The main processes for the heat treatment of parts are: heating, hardening, surface carburizing, tempering, nitriding, gas carburizing, blasting. In this case, suspended matter, iron (II, III) oxide, carbon oxide, benz (a) pyrene, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen (II) oxide, nitrogen dioxide, methane, hydrochloride (hydrochloric acid), sodium chloride, Potassium chloride, barium and its
  14. Methodical recommendations on the use of corrosion inhibitors in the process of pre-sterilization cleaning of medical devices from metal
    (Approved by the General Directorate of Quarantine Infections of the Ministry of Health of the USSR from 30.04.86 №28-6 / 16) General provisions Methodological recommendations are an addition to the "Methodological instructions for the presterilization cleaning of medical devices", approved by the Ministry of Health of the USSR 08.06.82. No. 28-6 / 13. Methodical recommendations are intended for employees of medical and preventive institutions,
  15. Disease of heavy chains.
    In this extremely rare tumor disease from the group of monoclonal gammapathies, lymphoid proliferation in tissues is accompanied by a leading sign - the presence in the blood or urine of specific heavy chains of immunoglobulins. With each of the three forms of heavy chain disease, the prognosis is poor. The most common form - the disease of alpha (a) -chains - is found in young people living in the Mediterranean region,
  16. HEAVY FORMS OF CHILD INFECTIOUS DISEASES
    In connection with the achievements of medicine, many children's infectious diseases have now become easier than before, but they still have severe forms that require intensive and sometimes urgent therapy. Treatment of children with severe forms of acute infectious diseases is based on the main principles of etiopathogenetic therapy. The effect of treatment depends on the ability to allocate
  17. Severe hypothyroidism (myxedemic coma)
    Definition Hypothermia, dysfunction of the central nervous system and hypotension make it possible to differentiate myxedemic coma from mere hypothyroidism. Myxedema is a rare but reversible cause of several frequent syndromes that cause patients to enter the ICU, which includes: a) severe intestinal obstruction, b) respiratory failure (including the impossibility of stopping ILV), c) cardiac
