Heavy metals, such as arsenic, lead, mercury, and others, are all around us. They’re in the ground we walk on, the water we drink, and the products we use every day. Elevated levels of most heavy metals can cause inflammation, make you ill, and wreak general havoc on the body.
One of the key challenges that heavy metals pose to treatments designed to detox and remove them from the system is that they form part of the body’s biofilm. What’s biofilm? Think of biofilm as a barrier created by the excretions from various pathogens in the body. Underneath this wall, you find bacteria, viruses, candida, all of which continue to feed this slime, creating a barrier in the way of our immune system.
As we start to detoxify heavy metals, we start to peel away the biofilm. We move toward a healthier life.
