The safest, most effective therapies for optimal health!

Lead poisoning symptoms, thinning bones and 'aging.' You may find the facts surprising!
You might be surprised to know that we ALL carry a significant burden of toxic elements in our bones.
Why is that true?
Expert MD's maintain that we are BORN with lead in our bones - 1000 - 2000% MORE of it in our bones that people had hundreds of years ago! Even with just a little osteoporosis, we are exposed to this toxic metal as it is released into the bloodstream when our bones let go of minerals.
The reason lead can accumulate in our bones is that it is molecularly analogous to calcium, also to zinc and 'fools' the body into integrating it into the bone matrix.
Many ills attributed to 'aging' can be due to toxic metals getting into our bloodstream. With any bone thinning or remodeling, lead poisoning symptoms can result because the blood disperses it into organs, muscles, nerves, etc., actively disrupting body function and damaging tissues. Ironically, ills from toxic metals often come from what is stored in our own bodies.
Additionally, throughout life, our bones are constantly going through a remodeling process - old cells breaking down and new ones being formed. THAT is why we can heal from a broken bone - even, given supportive measures and reasonably good health - at an advanced age. Any time bone goes through remodeling, some toxins bound within get released into circulation. This includes heavy metals.
What if fatigue, muscle and joint weakness and pain, difficulty concentrating, headaches, gut and digestive issues, kidney damage, etc. could be greatly relieved and prevented by being proactive about detoxifying?
Lead poisoning symptoms look a lot like what we think of as 'aging.'
Even if you feel great now, one way to help yourself stay optimally healthy as the years pass is to proactively detoxify this 'time bomb' that is encased in your bones!
Did you know that x-rays for bone density can show what look like normal bones when there really is osteoporosis? This is because some people's bones have so much lead (which shows up white same as bone mass in x-rays) that the bones look denser than they really are. Some very well-respected holistic medical doctors, such as Dr. Gary Gordon, make this assertion.
You see, lead is an 'analogue' of calcium, also is similar to zinc. It 'tricks' the body into absorbing it into bones and other body structures. 'Analogue' means it is so molecularly similar that the body will incorporate this foreign compound into the bone structure just as though it were calcium or zinc.
What happens when bones become less dense as we age? Lead, mercury and other toxins that were incorporated into bone structure now get released into the bloodstream, and we have toxic metals being distributed to every part of our body. THIS CAN MAKE US SICK!
More than you ever knew - this is a good part of why as years pass, we may become moody, depressed, hormonally imbalanced, with aches and pains we did not have when we were younger. THIS is an important part of 'diseases of aging,' such as circulatory disorders, cognitive problems, indigestion, allergies - you name it!
What does heavy metal toxicity have to do with Menopause in women, and a corresponding, but more gradual, compromise of youthful hormonal levels in men known as Andropause?
As hormones such as Testosterone, which helps maintain bone density, diminish - just the effect of thinning of bones releases a Pandora's Box of lead and other toxins into our bodies. No longer are these poisons less mobile, ensconced in skeletal tissue - they now stream out into organs and other tissues - often making us miserable!
Ironically, toxic metals lower our ability to produce hormones that otherwise would keep us more vigorous!
To maintain Testosterone, see the following:
Once I became familiar with how we all have a lead storage depot in our very bones, this explained why EDTA chelation has for over 8 years been a primary go-to therapy for me. Did you know the only 'officially recognized' use for EDTA is to detoxify lead?
When we look at lead poisoning symptoms that can result from release of our own body burden of this toxic metal, it just makes sense that regular use of EDTA chelation may be a very good idea.
