We are routinely exposed to heavy metal toxins through food, ground water, industrial waste and exposure to industrial environments.

Exposure to heavy metal toxicants is almost unavoidable in today’s world

PCB production was banned in the 1970s due to the high toxicity of most PCB congeners and mixtures. PCBs are classified as persistent organic pollutants which bioaccumulate in animals.

Many POPs are currently or were in the past used as pesticides. Others are used in industrial processes and in the production of a range of goods such as solvents, polyvinyl chloride, and pharmaceuticals.[1]

Toxicity, Heavy Metals

Soghoian S, MD, et al

Department of Emergency Medicine, State University of New York Downstate Medical Center

Background: Heavy metal toxicity represents an uncommon, yet clinically significant, medical condition. If unrecognized or inappropriately treated, heavy metal toxicity can result in significant morbidity and mortality. The periodic table contains 105 elements, of which 80 are considered metals. Toxic effects in humans have been described for less than 30 of these. Many metals are essential to biochemical processes, and others have found therapeutic uses in medicine. Iatrogenic metal toxicity may occur with bismuth, gold, gallium, lithium, and aluminum species. Intentional or unintentional ingestion of arsenic has been notorious as a means of suicide and homicide. However, occupational exposure to heavy metals has accounted for the vast majority of poisonings throughout human history. Hippocrates described abdominal colic in a man who extracted metals, and the pernicious effects of arsenic and mercury among smelters were known even to Theophrastus of Erebus (370-287 BC).

The classic acute occupational heavy metal toxicity is metal fume fever (MFF), a self-limiting inhalation syndrome seen in workers exposed to metal oxide fumes. MFF, or “brass founders ague,” “zinc shakes,” “Monday morning fever” as it is variously known, is characterized by fever, headache, fatigue, dyspnea, cough, and a metallic taste occurring within 3-10 hours after exposure. The usual culprit is zinc oxide, but MFF may occur with magnesium, cobalt, and copper oxide fumes as well. A neutrophil alveolitis ensues, with hypoxia, reduced vital capacity, and diffuse bilateral infiltrates seen on radiographs.

The pathophysiology of MFF appears to be a direct toxic irritation. Treatment is supportive and effects generally resolve within 24 hours. The diagnosis of MFF is based on a history of exposure and must be clearly differentiated from the true chemical pneumonitis that occurs after exposure to metal fumes from cadmium, manganese, mercury, and nickel. These exposures are clinically indistinguishable from MFF in the early stages but tend to progress to ARDS and cause significantly more morbidity and mortality.

Toxic effects from chronic exposure to heavy metals are far more common than acute poisonings. Chronic exposure may lead to a variety of conditions depending on the route of exposure and the metabolism and storage of the specific element in question. For example, chronic exposure to cobalt dust has been associated with the development of pulmonary fibrosis that can lead to cor pulmonale. This hard metal pneumoconiosis has been described for other metal dusts. Chronic inhalation of high levels of cadmium also causes both fibrotic and emphysematous lung damage, but it also has major effects in bone and

“Nearly all organ systems are involved in heavy metal toxicity; however, the most commonly involved organ systems include the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, gastrointestinal, hematopoietic, renal, and cardiovascular.”

How do you recognize the symptoms of elevated toxicity in your body?

  • Some EARLY warning signs are:
    • Generalized muscle aches
    • Chronic fatigue
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Food allergies or chemical sensitivities
additional indications that may be linked to elevated heavy metal burden

  • Some EARLY warning signs of heavy metal toxicity are:
    • Difficulty concentrating, irritability, headache
    • Lethargy, fatigue, weakness (#1 physical complaint)
    • Abdominal pain, tremors,
    • Kidney distress, elevated liver enzymes

Simple in-office surveys and tools that help us help identify patients in need

  • Simple diagnostics to evaluate toxicity in our patients
    • Detoxification Questionnaire
    • Bio Impedance Analysis
      • (Phase Angle and ICW Vs. ECW)
    • Urinary pH testing
    • Hair analysis

Use the detoxification questionnaire to qualify your patients’ needs

  • Detoxification Questionnaire
    • Quantifies patient symptoms (MSQ)
    • Identifies Toxicant Tolerability (XTT)
    • Simple metric to track patient improvement

slide20

pH testing aids in identifying our patients that may benefit from increased urinary alkalinity

  • Increased urinary alkalinity has been associated with increased rates of toxin excretion
  • Screen patients that may need additional support to excrete toxins

We always recommend alkalizing support for patients with urinary pH below 6.6

There is a demonstrated need for a safer, more convenient method of removing heavy metals

  • Intravenous Chelation Therapy
  • EDTA
    • Typically heavy metals and atherosclerosis
    • Has not been shown effective in oral dosing
    • Side effects: Depletion of vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, vitamin C, and magnesium.
    • Other side effects that have been reported include low blood sugar, diminished calcium levels, headache, nausea, dangerously low blood pressure, kidney failure, organ damage, irregular heartbeat, and seizures.

A new approach: stimulate the body’s natural ability to remove heavy metals

Metallothionein

  • One of the most important detoxification proteins in all species
  • In absence of heavy metals, its primary role is to transport zinc and copper
  • Protection against and elimination of toxic metals by metallothionein is well-described in literature

Natural proteins designed to transport and eliminate metals from cells

Metallothioneins

  • Known to efficiently bind several toxic metals (particularly Cadmium and Mercury) and act as a transporter of toxic metals to the liver or kidneys for conjugation and excretion
  • Prevents reaction of toxic metals with other biomolecules, thus attenuating their toxicity

Sources of heavy metals include seafood, groundwater, smoking, dental amalgams, pesticides and industrial exposure

A revolutionary mechanism for heavy metal detoxification

The excretion of toxic metals is governed by a complex chain of interwoven activities:

  • Phytonutrients up-regulates expression of MTF-1 (Metal-activated transcription factor-1)
  • MTF-1 induces creation of metallothionein (MT) in messenger RNA
  • Induced metallothionein (MT) bind to metals within the cell
  • Once metal is mobilized by MT, it is transported through the cell membrane and transported to the liver for Phase II detoxification and excretion through urine or feces
study patients experienced a significant increase in the excretion of metals
Study patients experienced a significant increase in the excretion of metals
  • All patients began with mercury levels below detectable limits
  • Two patients experienced a significant increase in mercury excretion

Elimination of arsenic increased 124%

Elimination of lead increased 200%
