(NaturalNews) It has become very clear that avoiding heavy metals is not a simple process. They are now showing up in significant levels in organic food formulations, and are lurking in places that one probably has not even considered. Know the exposure points, physical signs of bodily contamination, and how to start removing them.

Exposure points

Unfortunately, the exposure points of heavy metals have become very intertwined in everyday life, and in some cases, are a permanent part of the human physiology. This fact makes it especially important to avoid the obvious sources of heavy metals to keep exposure as low as possible, in order to maintain proper health.

Common exposure points include:

• Seafood (i.e., salmon, lobster)
• Mercury amalgams in teeth
• Personal care products (i.e., deodorant, make up)
• Rice protein products sourced from China
• Pots, pans and soda cans (lined with nickel or aluminum)
• Vaccinations
• Living in a home built prior to 1978 that has lead-based paint
• Smoking or inhaling second hand smoke
• Baking powder
• Environmental factors like work sites and chemtrails

With low dose heavy metal exposure during pregnancy, early childhood vaccination schedules increasing near twelve-fold since 1940, and mercury being the primary component for dental fillings, it becomes very difficult to avoid heavy metal toxicity in the early stages of life.

Then, in the not so obvious category, unacceptable levels of heavy metals showed up in organic food products, most notably rice protein products. Thanks to the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, the public now has insight into products formally deemed safe so they can make appropriate decisions in the best interests of their health.

Signs of heavy metal toxicity

Although the signs may appear to be broad, it is a good idea to consider heavy metal toxicity especially if one has had any significant exposure to one or more of the exposure points listed.

Some signs that can relate to heavy metal toxicity include:

• Chronic pain in the muscles and tissues of the body
• Chronic discomfort, fatigue and illness
• Brain fog - confused and forgetful
• Chronic candida infection
• Gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas, heartburn and indigestion
• Food allergies
• Dizziness
• Headaches and migraines
• Mood swings, depression and anxiety
• Nervous system issues such as burning extremities, numbness, tingling and paralysis
• Skin problems
• Sensitive teeth
• Insomnia

Heavy metal toxicity can also be at the root of common disorders like autism, chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple sclerosis.

One can also get a blood, hair and urine sample and have it sent it to an accredited lab for more scientific results.

Removing heavy metals

Once heavy metal toxicity is validated, it's important to understand that it is one of the most dangerous detoxification processes to do on ones own, and proper medical guidance should be considered. However, if one does choose to do so, it's best to do it slowly, and consider consuming the following foods for their safer removal:

• Cilantro
• Chlorella
• Parsley
• Kale
• Broccoli
• Onions
• Garlic
• Bentonite clay
• Fermented foods
• Foods rich in zinc, selenium, and vitamin C
• Purified or spring water

A recent study showed that modified citrus pectin promotes healthy urinary excretion of common, mild environmental exposures of mercury, arsenic, cadmium, lead and tin without altering excretion of other minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and selenium.

Also make sure to support the liver and kidneys during the heavy metal removal process due to the stress placed on these areas when removing heavy metals.

If one does choose proper medical guidance, consider discussing chelation therapy and infrared sauna treatments as well.
