Heavy Metals

Heavy metals are a huge issue in our world today. Even the elementary schools in Ontario, where I reside, have recently been studied and revealed unsafe levels of lead in their drinking water.

Heavy Metals are no small matter.

I found this in Anthony Williams book “Medical Medium Celery Juice”

“Heavy metals and heavy metal oxidation are undiscovered leading causes of brain fog, memory loss, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism as well as sever mental and physical deterioration such as Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinsons.”

High levels of toxic metals like  lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum, inhibit the bodies ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health. ” Anthony Williams

Heavy metals are just plain nasty and the problems from them are getting worse. One of the best ways to determine your heavy metal load as well as nutrient deficiency is through Hair Mineral Analysis. Here is a link to more info on that:

4 Easy Signs of Inflammation

braininflammation

As promised I am continuing on with my posts regarding inflammation because it’s such a common problem in today’s world. Today I will be sharing four easy clues that may be indicative of inflammation in the body.

Inflammation is the number one reason that an individual might consult a health care practitioner.  If the doc’s diagnosis ends in the four letters “itis” by definition, inflammation is involved. Think arthritis, bursitis, colitis, dermatitis, nephritis, neuritis and others.

One of the big diseases that is considered to be directly associated with inflammation is heart disease, which is one of the number one killers in today’s society.  Inflammation is now considered to be a more important risk factor for heart disease than high cholesterol levels!

It appears that inflammation lies underneath most health conditions, even obesity, dementia, migraine headaches and Alzheimer’s, allergies, diabetes, psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome and the list goes on!

I personally have taken measures to reduce inflammation in my own body and have seen dramatic positive results. I will be sharing more about that and what I did in future blog posts.

Here are 4 simple clues for checking in to see if you may be experiencing inflammation

Do you bruise easily?
Are you stiff when you get out of bed in the morning?
Do you have frequent backaches and/or muscle aches?
Do you suffer from a stuffy or runny nose a lot of the time or during certain seasons?

These are just 4 of many that we will cover in the future, but for now, how do you rank with those 4?

Please feel free to share this blog post with those you love. By opening up to the topic of inflammation and its dangers, perhaps we can encourage pro-active changes to enhance our health and the health of those we love and reducing inflammation is a GREAT place to start!
