Why is the Heavy Metal Testing kit?

One of the many testing kits that we offer is the Heavy Metal and Toxic Elements test.

Once collection has been done, the sample is sent off to a reputable lab and results are forwarded back to our clinic for review.

Analysis of the levels of toxic metals in urine after the administration of a metal detoxification agent is an objective way to evaluate the accumulation of toxic metals. Acute metal poisoning is rare. More common, however, is a chronic, low-level exposure to toxic metals that can result in significant retention in the body that can be associated with a vast array of adverse health effects and chronic disease.

Toxic metals do not have any useful physiological function. They adversely affect every organ system in the body and disrupt the homeostasis of nutrient elements.
