Are You At Risk For Heavy Metal Toxicity?
Are you experiencing symptoms such as lack of energy, poor circulation, weight-gain, high blood pressure or unexplained aches and pains? The answer to your health riddle may be Heavy Metal Toxicity.
We live in a polluted environment where our food, air and water are contaminated with hundreds of heavy metals that easily pass into our digestive tract to invade us.
Toxicity Exposure Checklist
Do you have:
- Silver (amalgam) fillings?
- Loss of memory?
- Unexplained symptoms?
- Chronic illness?
- Heavy fish consumption?
- Thimerasol vaccinations?
- Lead paint exposure?
- Handling toxic materials?
If you have any of the above and are experiencing symptoms such as lack of energy, poor circulation, weight-gain, high blood pressure or unexplained aches and pains, the answer to your health riddle may be Heavy Metal Toxicity.
The Role of Heavy Metals
Many of today’s diseases and health problems are linked to an over-burden of toxins in the body. We live in a polluted environment where our food, air and water are contaminated with hundreds of heavy metals that easily pass into our digestive tract to invade us.
Leading the charge in the toxic army are the Heavy Metals, which comprise; lead, mercury, aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, beryllium, bismuth, bromine, cadmium, nickel, thallium, tin and uranium.
Mercury is probably one of the best-known and one of the worst environmental poisons. It can come from: leaking amalgam/silver fillings, which are about 50% mercury, heavy fish consumption, residues from volcanic ash and coal burning.
It’s been over 30 years since the government banned lead from paint, and started to phase it out of gasoline but it seems like almost every day there is a news report about a product containing un-safe levels of lead, from children’s toys to lipsticks. Compared to several hundred years ago, the lead level in our bones is hundreds of times higher than it was at that time.
Of course, all of this just adds to the toxic burden and does nothing to handle the underlying problem – toxic contamination.
A “Silent” Condition
Undetected for years, many people are victims of a serious accumulation of Heavy Metals, the effects of which may only become apparent when a general debilitation of health begins to occur. This “silent” condition mimics many other illnesses, often making it hard to detect. Heavy Metals don’t actually hurt and have no obvious symptoms but the neurological destruction they can cause can result in very serious illness.
At LifeWorks Wellness Center we regularly test patients for Heavy Metal Toxicity. Fecal and urine analysis is done to establish the levels present in a patient’s body. If a complete detoxification is required, the liver, lymph system and digestive system of the patient is evaluated to ensure they are in good enough condition to support the detox process.
Heavy Metal Detoxification
The Heavy Metal Detoxifcation protocol at LifeWorks involves a cutting-edge protocol which eliminates from the body almost totally via the bile-bowel route which is the natural way the body detoxifies heavy metals. Urine levels remain low and the kidneys are not stressed by the detoxification program.
Heavy Metal Detoxification is not a one-time, quick-fix process and it can’t undo neurological damage caused by Heavy Metals but it can help to reduce any further damage. Patients overloaded with Heavy Metals must use a small dose and gradually increase as they begin to feel better.
If you suspect you may be Heavy Metal Toxic complete the LifeWorks questionnaire on the facing page. Following a detoxification protocol has made a difference to a lot of people’s health and it could do the same for you!

“I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia which affected the nerves in my face and left me in constant excruciating pain. I had previously been told that my only options were to either take pain meds for the rest of my life or have surgery. I went to LifeWorks and after a series of tests it was determined that I was Heavy Metal Toxic, in particular, mercury. Under Dr Springer’s guidance, I started following a detoxification program and over time my condition improved by at least 70%. I am sure there are many other people who are living with chronic or unexplained illness who could also be helped by a visit to LifeWorks.”*
