If you want to attain you ideal weight and improve your health in the process you need to start with detoxification. Everything in our bodies is interrelated so you really can’t change something without changing something else.

Let’s consider one example of such interrelationship: heavy metal intoxication and weight problems. How are they related?

Some studies show the connection between certain chemical substances accumulated in the body and underactive thyroid function leading to weight gain; some other chemical substances accumulated in the body contribute to weight loss.

For example, lead toxicity can result in weight loss while mercury toxicity can result in hypothyroidism and hence the weight gain. Heavy metals also interact with each other, for example the presence of lead can make the detrimental effects of mercury much stronger.

Heavy metal toxicity also results in different digestive tract disturbances such as bloating, constipation or diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and others. Heavy metals accumulated in the body can cause the liver damage and since the fat regulation is among the important functions of the liver, it will be impaired too.

Don’t think that heavy metal exposure is a problem for people who directly work with them; all of us are widely exposed to heavy metals in our daily lives. Cosmetics, deodorants, dental amalgams, newsprint, paint, birth control pills, aluminum foil, antiseptics, body powders, cheese, toothpaste, milk products, nasal sprays – all of them are sources of heavy metals. As you can see nobody is immune to them.

The heavy metal intoxication needs to be addressed before you can solve your weight-related problems.
You need to fine-tune your health if you want to attain and maintain your ideal weight.
