Heavy Metals are causing accelerated aging, but no one seems to be talking much about it.
I consider this an urgent problem of epic proportions. The “elephant in the room” that is effecting everyone, but because we can’t see it and main stream media is not reporting on it, and doctors do not routinely check for it, most people are shocked to find out that it is a huge problem.
Heavy metals are lurking everywhere, and they accumulate in the body over time, accelerating aging and wreaking havoc on your health.
There is a solution and I will get to that further down in the article.
Some common heavy metals include:
Aluminum found in antacids, cookware, foil, underarm deoderants and antipersperants, our water supply and vaccines.
Cadmium found in cigarette smoke and drinking water
When we were getting my husband well from Cancer, he tested very high in Cadmium. He had not smoked in over 30 years. (By the way, he had quit smoking years before I had met him) This just goes to show that this stuff stays in your body unless you do something to detox it out.
Lead is found in many lipsticks, cigarette smoke and drinking water. Flint, Michigan is not the only place in America with a lead problem in their water.
Mercury is found in dental amalgams which are silver fillings, this is one of the biggest cover ups in history. Of course now we have to worry about mercury in fish. I have certainly cut way back on the amount of fish and sushi I eat. Even our air has mercury because we have allowed big businesses to pollute the air. What goes up must come down and that is why the scientist are now finding mercury in our soil. Mercury is also used as a preservative in vaccines.
The Campaign For Safe Cosmetics (CSC) points out that “all these metals have been found in cosmetics ranging from lipstick to whitening toothpaste, eyeliner, nail color and more.”
They usually don’t list them on the label, but sometimes they do.
I grew up using Secret. I loved the smell of it. Little did I know that I was delivering Aluminum right into my lymphatic system every day of the week. YIKES!
Not to mention that almost every other ingredient on the list is toxic!
This is the ingredient list for Mac Lipstick. Look for Alumina, 7th row down at the end of the line. This is just a fancy way or deceptive way of listing aluminum. Again, it is one of many toxic chemicals in this lipstick.
As I mentioned before, heavy metals accumulate in the body accelerating aging and wreaking havoc on your health.
The average American has toxic levels of heavy metals.
25 % of all Americans suffer from heavy metal poisoning.
What do these heavy metals do to our body?
Heavy Metals effect your thyroid.
Hello, Thyroid issues are rampant these days.
We know that Mercury blocks the enzyme that converts the thyroid hormone T4 into the more active T3, this results in hypothyroidism.
Hypothyriodism is low functioning thyroid gland.
difficulty losing weight
sensitivity to cold
Another issue no one seems to be talking about.
Heavy metals disable your immune system.
Heavy metals destroy the ability of your white blood cells to find, pursue, eat and kill your oncoviruses, bacteria, yeast and even tumor cells.
Oncoviruses, viruses that cause cancer include Human Papilloma Viruses, Epstein Barr Virus, Hepatitis B and C Virus.
Most disturbing of all….
Heavy metals tend to settle in fatty tissues, especially the brain which is made up mostly of fat.
Symptoms of Heavy Metal overload include:
Neurological problems – ADD, ADHD, Autism, Alzheimers and Parkinsons
Robert Nash, M.D., is a practicing neurologist and the Chairman of the American Board of Metal Toxicology.
Dr. Nash says the abnormal biochemistry in the Alzheimer’s brain can be mimicked by mercury poisoning.
He says “My patients have recovered from dementia, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease, heart failure, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis, depression, autoimmune diseases like colitis and rheumatoid arthritis, and many other problems. Simply by detoxing heavy metals out of the body.”
The best way to get rid of heavy metals:
First off do everything you can to avoid them.
Pay attention to the personal care products you use
Avoid Tap Water
Never use Aluminum cookware or Aluminum Foil
And if you have dental amalgams, find a holistic dentist and get them removed one at a time. Never remove them all at once, this could cause further heavy metal overload in the body.
Detox on a daily basis
I feel that this is something that we must do if we want to stay healthy. Detoxing on a daily basis can prevent the accumulation of heavy metals.
Here are some ways to gently detox heavy metals.
Cilantro binds with heavy metals and ushers them out of the body. In fact Cilantro is known as the “Poor Man’s Chelation”. Eat ½ cup of organic cilantro every day. I put it in my morning fruit smoothy, on my salad. I even make a cilantro pesto. read Delicious Beauty Detox for the recipe.
Wild Blueberries from Maine – This is an ancient species of blueberries that is a super super food. Much higher in antioxidants than regular blueberries. They too bind with heavy metals and usher them out of the body. You want to eat 1 cup per day. I personally make a smoothie with them every morning. Many grocery stores carry Wylands, a brand of Frozen Wild Blueberries from Maine.
To detox heavy metals take 2,000 – 4,000 mg of vitamin C 3 or 4 times a day. If you get an upset stomach or the runs this is a signal that you have reached your body’s limit at that moment in time. Do not stop the vitamin c, just cut the dose in half and then work back up to the higher dose.
Remember vitamin C is non toxic, no one has ever died from taking too much vitamin C. When doing high doses, it is much easier on the stomach to take a buffered or lipospheric Vitamin C.
Here are some brands I recommend:
Liv On Labs
Ultra Potent-C 1000, available at The Ageless Beauty Report, is a Buffered Vitamin C that contains a proprietary blend designed to help prevent potential stomach upset associated with Vitamin C.
Once you have done the high doses for 30 days, go back down to a maintenance dose of 2,000 mg 3x a day.
Warning: Do NOT buy Vitamin C manufactured in China. Over 70% of all vitamin C is manufactured in China. There have been problems with heavy metal contamination. I have vetted the Kirkland Brand of ascorbic acid Vitamin C , which is the cheapest form of vitamin c. It is made in America and is safe.
Organic sulfur binds with heavy metals and ushers them out of the body. Sulfur is supposed to be in our food supply, but petrochemical fertilizers have depleted the soil, therefore our fruits and vegetables are deficient and the feed that animals eat is deficient, which makes our meat supply deficient. So yes, most everyone is very deficient in Sulfur.
Sulfur is vital in helping cells replicate at a normal rate. What is cancer? Cell replication gone mad.
Organic Sulfur crystals are mixed in water and then consumed. The sulfur pulls the oxygen from the water and delivers it across the cell membrane and into the cell. This causes the heavy metals, viruses, and bacteria to detox out of the cells. It also oxygenates the cells. Cancer can not live in an oxygenated system.
Dr. Ron Neer, my go to sulfur expert, was a dentist who nearly died from mercury poisioning. Yes, those dental amalgams that he worked with were full of mercury. It was not until he found out about the amazing properties of organic sulfur and began consuming large quantities that he made a full recovery.
He closed his practice and is now spending the rest of his life educating people on the benefits of organic sulfur.
You must use Organic Pure Sulfur, many sulfurs on the market, including MSM supplements, have fillers and binders added. These fillers greatly reduce the beneficial properties of sulfur.
My mother had arthritis in her hands so badly she had to use 2 hands to start the car. After being on the sulfur for just one week she was back to starting the car with one hand.
Organic sulfur is a food, not a drug. Organic Sulfur is not stored in the body and it is considered to be non-toxic. No one has ever died from taking sulfur.
Warning: Those on blood thinners or those who are allergic to high sulfur foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage, onions or garlic, should NOT take sulfur.
There are many other foods and supplements that assist in heavy metal detox including:
Spirulina from Hawaii
Atlantic Dulce Flakes (buy at Whole Foods or buy powder form at MountainRoseHerbs.com)
Barley Power from GreenSupreme.net
Warning: If you are suffering from a serious illness or feel you might have heavy metal poisioning please seek out professional help.

Heavy metals have no place in the human body, they accelerate aging and they wreak havoc on your thyroid and can cause long term health issues.
Avoiding these harmful toxins is not easy. You must educate yourself and read labels. To insure long term health and ageless beauty I believe it is imperative to detox on a daily basis by choosing the right foods.
