Testing for Heavy Metals and Minerals

Testing for heavy metals and essential minerals is just one of the services we provide at Capalaba Natural Health.

Metals and minerals might seem similar, but when it comes to your body – one is the “good guy”, and the other is very definitely a “bad guy”.

Minerals are the Good Guys

The human body requires the right balance of a number of minerals for optimal health and wellbeing. Some you may have heard of – such as calcium and iron – and others, like selenium, may be more unfamiliar.

Consuming a healthy and varied diet is the best way to provide your body with these essential minerals, while supplements may also be of benefit.

When your body is lacking certain minerals, you may notice difficulties with your joints and muscles, memory and concentration, headaches and fatigue, anxiety, depression and a whole host of other symptoms which impact on your enjoyment of life.

Toxic Heavy Metals

Heavy metals on the other hand not only prevent the absorption of essential minerals, but can also disrupt the functioning of some your body’s critical processes, such as your nervous, digestive, hormonal and other systems.

As heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, copper, fluoride, and aluminium, have no biological role to play in our bodies, our systems are ill-equipped to deal with them. Yet we are all exposed to heavy metals on a regular basis – whether through inhalation, absorption or consumption.

Over time, these heavy metals accumulate and may reach toxic levels in our bodies, causing problems with our health and wellbeing, especially anxiety, depression, memory issues, autoimmune conditions, migraines, thyroid issues, excessive PMS and hormonal symptoms, chronic fatigue, ongoing flu-like symptoms, fibromyalgia, and ADHD, OCD, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Hyperactivity in children.

Naturopathic Testing for Heavy Metals and Essential Minerals

Naturopathy focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of illness – using modern, traditional, scientific and empirical methods, while recognising the body’s innate power to heal itself.

At Capalaba Natural Health, our team can assist with testing for heavy metals, as well as the levels of essential minerals, in your body.  Your naturopath can help identify the best course of action to improve your essential minerals, and to safely remove any excess heavy metals, to boost your health and vitality.
