Urine Toxic Metals

Many unusual and seemingly unrelated bodily symptoms can occur due to heavy metal toxicity. Heavy metals are so named because of their specific gravity (the weight of a substance as compared with an equal volume of water). Some examples of heavy (toxic) metals include aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Heavy metals may enter the human body via food, water, air, or absorption through the skin. Within our bodies, heavy metals have a toxic effect because they are not readily metabolized and accumulate in the soft tissues. Toxic metals adversely affect virtually every organ system and they disrupt the homeostasis of nutrient elements. 

Analysis of the levels of toxic metals in your urine is an objective way to evaluate the accumulation of toxic metals in your body. Chronic, low-level exposure to toxic metals is common and  is associated with a vast array of adverse health effects and chronic disease. 

Common Symptoms: Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity vary widely because these metals can enter every type of cell in the body. Toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, abnormal blood composition, or damage to the lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. Symptoms resulting from chronic exposure are very similar to symptoms of other health conditions and often develop slowly over months or even years. 

Chelation (pronounced key-lay-shun) therapy is a treatment for removing heavy metals from the body. It involves the administration of a chelating agent, which is used to mobilize heavy metals stored in body tissues and increase their excretion in the stool and urine. The toxic metals urine test is typically the first step in chelation therapy. It is used to analyze the the body's total burden of toxic metals and will help your Naturopathic Doctor formulate the most appropriate Chelation protocol for your needs.
