Other Sources of Heavy Metal ExposureTap water and fish are just two of the many sources of heavy metal poisoning that threaten our collective health. Other sources of heavy metal exposure include insecticides routinely used on crops, mercurial vaccine additives called “adjuvants,” cigarette smoke, and industrial manufacturing.
How to Detoxify Heavy Metals Through Chelation The term “chelation” in relation to heavy metal poisoning refers to several compounds’ ability to “capture” heavy metals from tissues where they are deposited in order to safely escort them out of the body via the urine or sweat. Etymologically, the term comes from the ancient Greek word “chelos” which means “claw.”
Chelation therapy involves the careful introduction of a combination of powerful chelating agents to slowly remove the heavy metals from the body. The key word is “careful” – removing heavy metals too suddenly can actually be detrimental to health by triggering a dramatic uptick in poisoning symptoms.
The most effective natural chelators are:
Of these, chlorella is the most potent chelation agent. It is often considered an “intelligent chelator” because it accomplishes both components of the chelation process — first, by prying heavy metals loose from tissues and, secondly, by binding to them for elimination.
