The topic of heavy metal toxicity is a big one... and for good reason!
Heavy metals (like mercury, arsenic, cadmium, lead, and others) can be toxic to the body, especially when accumulated over a lifespan... which is "normal" in today's toxic world. Once in the body, these sort of metals can be hard to get out. Therefore, they accumulate to cause or contribute to numerous chronic conditions - metabolic health issues, neurological issues, circulatory issues, and more.

In this episode we avoid fear mongering and get to the heart of how to keep your body free from toxic metal accumulation so you can stay vital and healthy.
