Toxic Element Accumulation – the “hidden” danger posed by toxic elements!
Toxic elements can pose a variety of health effects. However, toxic element accumulation (or a buildup) poses the hidden danger of toxic elements. The technical term is bioaccumulation that simply describes the process in which toxic elements, toxic chemicals, industrial waste, and so on gradually accumulate (or build up) in living tissue. The timeframe for bioaccumulation may range from years to decades.
However, constant toxic element exposures produce one of two possibilities:
- If your body does possess sufficient levels of protective nutrients required to eliminate a particular toxin, you reduce the potential for accumulation and adverse effects.
- If your body does not possess sufficient levels of protective nutrients, elimination is impaired and toxic element accumulation begins. The body will naturally sequester the remaining toxin into storage sites (brain, kidneys, liver, bone, etc.) throughout the mind and body. This brings into question Toxic Element Safety Guidelines.
Protective nutrients are specific nutrients known to be naturally antagonistic toward specific toxic elements. Protective nutrients include a variety of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. These are important nutrients addressed in a healthy eating plan.
Why don’t I recognize toxic element accumulation?
Toxic element accumulation normally goes undetected because each day-to-day exposure is so minute (microscopic) it does not cause any immediate symptoms. This is the primary reason (“the why”) you probably don’t give toxic elements much thought.
Let’s see how this may work. You may have a couple dental amalgams (2) continually releasing mercury vapors, you enjoy a variety of foods with a variety of toxins (pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, mercury containing seafood, and so on), and you may need an occasional aluminum-containing antacid. This is just a simple example of your potential for constant toxic element exposures.
However, as you will see, these constant toxic element exposures, regardless how minimal each exposure may be, may easily accumulate over time.
How many toxic elements are “stored” inside you?
This is commonly referred to as a body load or bioaccumulation. Unfortunately, there is not any test or lab analysis that can reveal your total accumulation of toxic elements. As such, don’t let this widely promoted term (body load) fool you because the best we can do with current technology is monitor ongoing exposures and/or the elimination of toxic elements (detoxing) on subsequent analyses.
Keep in mind; toxic elements are stored in many different tissues (brain, kidneys, liver, bone, etc.) throughout the mind and body. As such, without performing a “biopsy” on every tissue (including the brain) it is not possible to “know” which toxic elements or how much “buildup” has occurred over the years. Hence, a body load is not possible.
How do I detox hidden toxic elements?
As you know, numerous detox programs are widely promoted that include IV chelation therapy, juicing, massage, footbaths, saunas, and so on. Many of these programs are very helpful depending on your detox goals.
However, as seen in Detox the Body, targeted nutrition is the most effective means to remove toxins that are deeply stored in the tissues throughout the mind and body. At the same time, targeted nutrition provides the “protective nutrients” that are the most powerful for the elimination of toxic elements upon exposure.
Toxic element accumulation: Protect yourself!
The best means to protect yourself against any toxic element accumulation is to improve your nutrition to prevent it from happening.
