Heavy Metal Detox
The human body is exposed to many environmental toxins. These can be naturally occurring compounds such as lead, mercury and cadmium, and there are human-made chemicals like bisphenol A (BPA). This compound is widely used in the manufacturing of plastics and epoxy resins that are used in food and drink packaging, water, baby bottles, metal can linings, bottle tops, and water supply pipes. Amongst the other common environmental toxins are pesticides. Most conventional food production uses pesticides; therefore people are exposed to low levels of pesticide residues through their diets.
All these solvents entering the body can, over time, decrease the optimum functioning of its organs. The body’s immune system may become compromised as it tries hard to cleanse the body of poisons, and the elimination organs such as the liver and kidneys can become overloaded.
Eventually symptoms may start to appear as allergies. Chemical allergies may present themselves as skin reactions, watery eyes, ringing in the ears, stuffy nose, diarrhoea, nausea, upset stomach, asthma, bronchitis, arthritis, fatigue, eczema, intestinal disorders and head aches. If these conditions are manifesting then it is indicating the immune system has become overloaded.
Try to remove or reduce exposure to these contaminants. Simple things such as washing fruits and vegetables, buying organic and chemical free products where possible, and reducing the use of BPA and similar plastic products will all help to reduce the toxin load entering the body.
Ingesting foods with natural ingredients that are high in antioxidants such as vitamins, minerals and herbs may also help to counter the effects of external toxins. Nature’s Sunshine Heavy Metal Detox is a potent natural detoxification support product. Not only will it help replenish vital minerals and vitamins but can provide support for the major detoxifying organ, the liver.
