Metal toxicants entering the part of the brain that deals with stress and panic have been linked to disorders dealing with the central nervous system. Increasing evidence indicates that damage to the locus ceruleus (LC), is present in a wide range of neurodegenerative diseases including demyelinating and psychiatric disorders.

There are a growing number of Clinicians and Scientists who are convinced that excitotoxins and heavy metals play a critical role in the development of several neurological disorders, including migraines, seizures, infections, abnormal neural development, certain endocrine disorders, specific types of obesity, and especially the neurodegenerative diseases; a group of diseases which includes ALS, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and olivopontocerebellar degeneration.

Popular breakfast cereals found to contain low levels of toxic heavy metals; Natural News Labs publishes results

heavy metalsA scientific study conducted at the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org) has found that popular breakfast cereals such as Corn Flakes, Kix, Uncle Sam, Raisin Bran and Honey Bunches of Oats are relatively free of toxic heavy metals. These cereal products are made by companies like Kellogg’s, General Mills, Post and Nature’s Path. Conducted by food scientist and lab director Mike Adams, the study was based on atomic spectroscopy analysis using ICP-MS instrumentation to test for aluminum, mercury, arsenic, lead and cadmium. The announcement is posted at ConsumerWellness.org (more…)

Elimination of Heavy Metals with Sunwarrior Liquid Light (fulvic acid)

Sunwarrior Liquid light (Fulvic Acid) has the capability of transferring metals to and from metallo-proteins in vivo. These proteins play a role in metal storage and sequester excess metal ions, preventing toxicity. Metallo-protein concentrations are the highest in the liver where metals accumulate in the in portions of this organ. Metallo-proteins can be found in many other human tissues, including small amounts in the blood plasma, which suggests that these proteins play a role in the transport of metals as well. (more…)

The Klinghardt Neurotoxin Elimination Protocol

What are Neurotoxins?

Neurotoxins are substances attracted to the mammalian nervous system. They are absorbed by nerve endings and travel inside the neuron to the cell body. On their way they disrupt vital functions of the nerve cell, such as axonal transport of nutrients, mitochondrial respiration and proper DNA transcription.

The body is constantly trying to eliminate neurotoxins via the available exit routes — the liver, kidney, skin and exhaled air. Detox mechanisms include acetylation, sulfation, glucuronidation, oxidation and others. The liver is most important in these processes. Here most elimination products are expelled with the bile into the small intestine and should leave the body via the digestive tract. However, because of the lipophilic/neurotropic nature of the neurotoxins, most are reabsorbed by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system (ENS) in the intestinal wall. The ENS has more neurons than the spinal chord. From the moment of mucosal uptake the toxins can potentially take 4 different paths: (more…)

Heavy Metal Detox

Heavy metal contamination in the body plays a major pathological role in many diseases. Small amounts of lead can damage hormones and increase cardiovascular diseases, while mercury can accumulate in the brain leading to memory loss, poor coordination, and hearing or speech impairments among other problems. Aluminum is both neurotoxic and carcinogenic, cadmium causes kidney and respiratory problems, and arsenic may result in headaches, confusion, and night blindness.

Heavy metals are found in food, industrial production, the atmosphere, personal hygiene products, and many other places. The most notable exposure risks for mercury are amalgam tooth fillings and vaccinations containing Thimerosal. Cadmium is emitted from brake dust and endanger workers in various manufacturing processes. Lead is found in paint, food, and other products. Aluminum contamination arises mostly from consuming municipal water and fluoridated water allows aluminum to enter the body more effectively. Aluminum can also come from cookware and antiperspirants.

Virtually everyone in industrialized countries is affected by heavy metals and the greater the heavy metal burden the greater the likelihood of serious disease.

Never fear, it is now easy, safe, and affordable to reduce your heavy metal by supplementing with humifulvate and iodine.

Dispatches from the Front Lines of Autism and Lyme Disease

The thinking about autism and Lyme disease is moving so quickly, it can make your head spin.

Last year, and again this year, doctors at the Lyme-Induced Autism (LIA) Foundation’s annual conference shared perspectives from the front lines of a battle against mostly unseen, devastating pathogens that rob the afflicted of the promise of a healthy life.

The most striking difference was that last year, the doctors flashed on the big screen lots of patients’ slides revealing genetic testing and lab results. This year, there were almost none. The doctors who had “been there, done that” found that the tests didn’t really help that much.

The Tyranny of Tests
“Our testing is not that great,” offered Dr. Jeff Wulfman of Vermont. “We must rely on the patient’s history. That more often leads to the diagnosis. There often is no gold standard to measure.” He cited several studies, including a 2002 study of 80 internal medicine outpatients that found that history led to the final diagnosis 76% of the time, whereas the physical examination and laboratory investigation led to the final diagnosis 12% and 11% of the time, respectively.1 (more…)
