Something very nice to share this week...
“After over 8 years, I am finally feeling Terrific!! Both, the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic said there was nothing wrong. I knew there was….
Finally being diagnosed with Lyme and treated with ozone IV therapy has been a true Blessing!!
The IV room staff and Lifeworks have been wonderful and I am so thankful to have a life again!!
I truly appreciate all the wonderful work Lifeworks does to help patients who are very ill and without hope! It’s been a miracle! A gift to have renewed life again!
Thank you!!” -JM

Have a great week.

The Environment & Your Health
When: Thursday, September 15, @ 6:30pm
Where: Nature’s Food Patch
Learn about the causes of environmental illness: mold toxicity, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Find out how to recover from these toxins to keep the body healthy and functioning properly.
What is Heavy Metal Toxicity
Heavy metal toxicity is a term used to describe the condition a person is suffering from when it is determined they have high levels of heavy metals in their body – they could also be described as being “heavy metal toxic”.
Heavy metal toxicity is caused when the build-up of heavy metals such as aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury disrupt the normal biochemical process in the body. The heavy metals may come from exposure to multiple sources including cookware, fish, soda cans, freeway dust, cosmetics, vaccines and many, many more.
In particular, heavy metal toxicity can contribute to degenerative diseases, but other conditions can be linked to heavy metal toxicity including chronic fatigue, memory loss, hypothyroidism, insomnia, unexplained tremors, depression, joint pain and chronic headaches.
Heavy metal toxicity can be determined by a urine analysis, which shows the levels of heavy metals in the body. If metal levels are found to be high, chelation therapy is a safe, FDA approved treatment of heavy metal toxicity. Ridding the body of heavy metals is an important step in relieving debilitating symptoms of heavy metal toxicity and helping to improve overall health.
