Dr, Kaayla Daniel and Dr. Galen Knight have observed that even when people follow healthy dietary guidelines, they can still have serious health problems. They may digest their food poorly, experience digestive distress, or be generally sickly.
One reason may be toxic metals. Mercury, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic, lead, nickel, and other metal poisons flood the environment and invade your body. Toxic metals can cause or contribute to a long list of diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other brain and neurological disorders. While the medical establishment recognizes the acute toxicity that comes from high levels of metals in your body, far more people suffer the adverse effects of low-level, chronic exposure.
But you can reduce your exposure to dangerous environmental metals by:
* Using glass, cast iron, carbon steel, titanium, and enamel cookware; aluminum and teflon are well known for their toxic dangers, and stainless steel can expose you to carcinogenic nickel
* Minimizing consumption of restaurant food; restaurants are required to use stainless steel pots and vats
* Avoiding stainless steel thermoses; the glass lined kind are best
* Not using cosmetics with aluminum bases, mineral powders that contain bismuth, and aluminum-laden antiperspirants
* Staying away from vaccinations that inject mercury or aluminum directly into your bloodstream
* Avoiding dental amalgam fillings
Other ways to protect yourself include a healthy diet, and the use of food grade diatomaceous earth. More information about this subject will be discussed in my Inner Circle interview with Dr. Kaayla Daniel, coming soon to Mercola.com.
