Toxic World P3
Another thing with heavy metals is that men are getting right now is hemochromatosis. Hemochromatosis is a big issue with men where you can’t break down iron in the body, and it builds in the tissue. The buildup in the tissue causes damage in that tissue. It usually starts the liver, but it could go to the joints, heart, anywhere. So, the medical profession, what do they recommend? Get your blood drawn up at least two or three times a year to keep your iron level down and to avoid iron-containing foods. Well, there’s something a little bit easier. I don’t mind maybe once or twice donating your blood. They know a product of milk thistle known as silymarin will actually reducing the oxidizing effects of iron and push iron out of the body. So, milk thistle actually helps the body clear the iron out of the body.
So, not only are we finding that certain herbs block the absorption of heavy metals, we’re also finding that milk thistle and garlic can actually go and chelate certain things out of our body. It takes a very long time, but if you are a person or who know somebody that has hemochromatosis, they have to know that that dosage is correct as far as milk thistle because they can really benefit from that because that will kill you, 50, 60 years of age. That’s a genetic problem. Milk thistle will cover a genetic problem.
So, lead is very big these days. Lead exposure toxicity, to sum it up, they found that fluoridating of some waters increased the absorption of lead. So, chemicals in the water will increase the absorption of lead, depends where it held. The thing is if lead is in the cells or the tissues, you can get it out. If it’s in the bone, it’s there. That’s it. You can’t get it out. It’s stuck in there. It’s there forever. That’s what they’re finding.
So, having something to prevent these things is very important because once you get in the bone, you’ll have certain changes, osteoporosis and calcification of certain arteries because lead displaces calcium. There could be a lot of problems that will happen in the body.
Here’s some of the symptoms of lead. You have colic. You have discolored gums. Gout is a big one with lead, anemia where the locus can’t be determine. You have seizures, mental retardation, and also the one that needs to be added there is cancer.
Mercury is another thing we have to look out for. It’s kind of sad to think that the Veterinarian Society pulled the vaccine even way before we pulled the vaccines in humans. They stopped the vaccination of animals with high levels of thimerosal in 1996. It took about four or five years, about 2000, to pull it from certain vaccines, and even certain vaccines have that. So, it just goes to show you who’s looking out for you. You have to look out for yourself.
Mercury. Large fish, pesticide residue, fungicide on grains, atmospheric pollution, dental amalgams, interior paints, and pharmaceuticals. Mercury causes a lot of psychological dysfunction, undefined vision changes, renal dysfunction, temporal-mandibular joint dysfunction, migraine headache, problems involving loss of motor skills.
Now, this is interesting. I took this out of What Doctors Don’t Tell You, and I didn’t know that 95% of the fragrances come from petroleum. It was interesting. So, if you are sensitive like myself to certain fragrances. I remember when I was younger, I used to put my mother’s hand lotion in the car. I remember saying this stuff was sticking to the inside of my nose. It was that thick, but anybody else wouldn’t have had a problem. I felt that sensitivity, but it’s interesting that these are mostly the headaches, spaciness, the inability to concentrate, the mood changes, the dizziness, the nausea. These could be sometimes could be molds, mildew, fungus, Candida that are making your body hypersensitive also.
They’re finding that’s why when you look down below here, they took this out of a Candida research information foundation. So, if you have these problems, you would probably do well going out of an antifungal or an anti-yeast program and take care of that, but there are more than 5,000 chemicals that are used in fragrance manufacture. There’s no way of regulating that. If there was, they wouldn’t be called “trade secrets” because that’s what they’re called because business is in trade secrets.
So, I’m just going to tell you the type of things you want to expect when you have the problem. Most of these things, we’re putting odor eaters in our shoes, we’re putting deodorants into our body. When our body’s normal, we’re supposed to sweat. I mean sweating’s normal. So, we’re doing all kinds of things. We’re putting talc powder in our shoes. We’re putting baby powder. We’re putting aluminum, all that stuff when it’s perfectly normal to sweat.
“Researchers have found evidence of altered learning, behavior, and sexuality in animals long before they recognized similar signs of reduced intelligence, altered activity, and impaired fertility in humans. The obvious and reported behavioral sign of neurological damage observed in laboratory rats, mice, and monkeys after exposure to PCBs in the womb and early life is hyperactivity.” This came out of Greater Boston’s Physician for Social Responsibility in Harm’s Way, Toxic Threats to Child Development in January 2001.
The Great Lake fishing. Jacobson took females that ate fish from Lake Michigan, and he found that the females, six years before they were pregnant, a two to three times fish for a month for about six years. So, that’s not a lot that’s two to three times a month. For about six years, they found the difference between infants born to fish-eating mothers and non-fish-eating mothers were clearly evident. “The babies of fish-eating mothers had smaller heads and weighed less at birth. They tended to be more jerky or twitchy, had poorer balance, weaker reflexes, and handled minor stresses poorly. The head problems concentrating on tests of recognition were higher. PCBs were found to have more learning difficulties as they grew. When these children were retested at four years of age, those exposed to the highest PCB levels had the lowest verbal and memory test scores.”
Here’s another one: Exposure to PCBs in the womb and through the breast milk can cause monkeys to have deficits in memory and learning as well as hyperactivity and problems in coordination. They found also in “the Great Lake fish and salmon appear to have developed reproductive and endocrine problems such as enlarged thyroids from living in heavily chemically polluted water. If gulls ingest chemically contaminated salmon, they, too, develop symptoms of thyroid disease.” Right up the food chain.
Now, people are like, “What in the world are you supposed to do?” It’s not the soil. It’s in the soil. You’re supposed to eat the fish because they have essential fatty acids, but the fish are contaminated. You’re supposed to eat your vegetables, but your vegetables have pesticide residues and all types of chemicals on them. You’re not supposed to eat so many carbohydrates. You can go on, and it’s almost like you’re in a little prison. You’re like, “What they heck am I supposed to eat?” Looking at this thing, everybody’s like eat your vegetables. That’s good until I come to this next thing.
It says, “In May 2000, the Journal of the American Chemical Society published their findings in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. All twelve vegetables they grew on soil sprayed decades earlier contained chlordane. Potatoes, carrots, and beets absorbed chlordane systematically—it was in the flesh. Zucchini acted like a sponge for it. It also ended up in beans, eggplant, lettuce, dandelion, and spinach,” just about all those things they’d recommend you to eat.
Then, after the findings were made public, the lead author, Dr. Mary Jane Incorvia Mattina was quoted saying, “The main recommendation is to wash the foods you are going to eat, and not to plant near a house foundation that could have been treated with chlordane. If you take these precautions, you shouldn’t have any cause for concern.” So, a smart person stuck around and asked more questions. When asked by us how one washes out chlordane out of a vegetable, she admitted that it’s impossible. So, I thought everything was supposed to be alright.
Now, I have some things up here. What can we do? I recommend periodic cleanses. We take our animals to the veterinarian. We do parasite cleanses with our animals. We do all sorts of things with our animals. When it comes to us, we live in the same environment. We practically eat the same food they do, but do periodic cleanses. Find out if there is a problem, and I’m going to go through certain things to find out if you have a problem. If you do have a problem, what’s the extent of the problem and depending on the extent of the problem, what are you going to do about the problem? So, you measure the problem. You take action. You track the results, and you follow up to see if the problem is solved.
Now, this was a hair analysis that I ran on a patient of mine that had tremors and memory problems. He’s about 58 years old, and he two or three TIAs, which are minor strokes. I said, “Why don’t we do a hair analysis on you and see what’s going on? Maybe there’s something that is lodged in your arteries or your brain or something.” I did this on him, and he tested high for arsenic. The doctor’s supposed to know everything. I’m supposed to know everything. He said, “What is it from?” So, I went through the list of things, and I told him, “Well, I don’t know.” I listed it all in the sheet, and I said, “These are all the things that contain arsenic.” He said, “I’ve never really had any of those,” and I said, “Well, let’s not really ponder on it. Why don’t we just try to do something about it and maybe the answer will come.”
Well, I found out that he was in Vietnam, and he came back about two or three appointments later. He said that when he was in Vietnam, they gave him arsenic tablet for parasites and put him in a room. So, that’s where he got his arsenic from. I had no idea, but they were trying to deparasitize him using arsenic, which they commonly did. They used mercury and arsenic.
So, I put him on a program. It probably took five months, but I said, “You know what? I think this has probably something to do with your TIAs, your memory loss,” some unforeseen consequences that’s happened in his life. Then, after about four or five months, I took his arsenic from down here all the way to here, which is a huge improvement. Some say hair analysis isn’t that accurate. Hair analysis is very accurate because it’s an excretory organ. So, anything in your body that needs to be pushed out and is toxic is going to be pushed out through hair immediately. So, you can hold it in your hair for a very long time.
So, when people tell me that hair analysis isn’t that good, I tell them mammograms are less accurate than hair analysis. Mammograms are only $150, 40% accurate, more false positives that you could really realize. I talked to a lady this past week about mammograms because she was asking about it. She said, “I was doing an MRI scan.” MRI scans on the breast are 95% accurate, but the punch line is that she said that each breast cost $10,000 to run the MRI. That’s what she said. She couldn’t believe it because she was actually reading it. When people say mammograms and all that, this is a tool combined with your genetics, blood work. Those things put together. You have a history. Nobody just looks at this and says, “Oh my gosh. You have this, this, and this.” No, you have to have some other issues. This is true doctor’s data out of Chicago. This is $78 or $83. It might have just gone up. There’s also, not just for this, a bottom half that tells you about your issues.
