METAL EFFECTS

Metal descriptions and their effects.

ALUMINIUM (AL)

is commonly ingested with food, medicine and water. Previously, aluminum was considered virtually non-absorbable and was thus freely used in a variety of food additives and over-the-counter drugs such as antacids. New research suggests that Al can cause neurological changes such as seen in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and dialysis dementia. Al can bind to DNA, resulting in abnormal neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Al inhibits the enzyme, hexokinase. It is absorbed in the intestine and excreted via the kidney. In persons with abnormal kidney function, Al is deposited in the bones. Toxicity symptoms include ataxia, colic, and GI irritation. Al is widely found in foods and water. Hair: elevated levels reflect long-term exposure and increased tissue storage.

THERAPEUTIC CONSIDERATION: Chelation Therapy is recommended to reduce levels dramatically. Support digestive and kidney function. As soon as digestive functions are properly supported, the elimination of aluminum increases and the intestinal absorption decreases. Check calcium tissue levels. An inadequate calcium supply or calcium absorption problems facilitate the absorption of aluminum.

ARSENIC(AS)

All the biochemical actions of arsenic are attributed to its trivalent forms, widely found in polluted environments. Inorganic arsenic, or arsenite, does accumulate in tissues and ranks second among heavy metals causing death. Arsenite rapidly leaves the blood to be deposited in vital organs and tissues such as hair, skin and nails. Symptoms of toxicity have been associated with alopecia, confusion, constipation, delayed wound healing, dermatitis, diarrhea, drowsiness, edema, fatigue, muscle pains, numbness, seizures, and weakness. Hematological, renal or pancreatic dysfunction may be observed. Chronic arsenic exposure is known to cause anemias, bone marrow depression, cancers of the respiratory tract, skin and neurological problems. Ingestion of relatively large amounts of soluble arsenic compounds, especially on an empty stomach, affect the myocardium, causing death. Long-term exposure to small amounts of arsenic increase hair and urine levels; however considerate chronic exposure results in hair loss. Hair or nails are known to be used in forensic medicine to establish long-term, chronic exposure and slow-rate poisoning. Blood levels do not increase until toxicity has been reached. Urine measurements are used to monitor Chelation Therapy.

THERAPEUTIC CONSIDERATION: Chelation Therapy is the treatment of choice to get rid of acute and chronic deposits. In addition cases of chronic exposure respond well to antioxidant therapy, especially ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate, all tocopherols (vit. E) and an increased intake of sulfur-containing amino acids and vit. B6. Arsenic suppresses iodine and selenium.
