Heavy Metal Testing

Provides insight on mineral and toxic metal levels and how well the body is able to currently excrete toxic metals.

We are all exposed to heavy metals.  Lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and aluminum are among the most toxic and prevalent. They have multiple and overlapping mechanisms of toxicity:  They increase free radical production; they poison enzyme systems; they directly damage DNA; they disrupt the endocrine system; and they damage mitochondria and cell walls. There are several ways to determine one's exposure to heavy metals and estimate the body burden of heavy metals. Hair, blood and/or a provocation urine test may be used.

The Signs and Symptomsof potential heavy metal toxicity include:

  • Behavioural changes
  • Alzheimer's  Disease
  • Cognitive changes
  • Anemia
  • Depression
  • Cancer
  • Fatigue
  • Gingivitis
  • Learning deficits
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic Renal Failure
  • Gout
  • Headache
  • Memory Loss
  • Irritability
  • Cognitive changes
  • Male Infertility
  •  Multiple Sclerosis Tremor

Hair is essentially an excretory tissue rather than a functional tissue.  Hair elements analysis provides important information which, in conjunction with symptoms and other laboratory values can assist with an early diagnosis of physiological disorders associated with aberrations in essential and toxic element metabolism
