ALERT: Did you know that many of the products you used had aluminum in them?

Why having aluminum levels in your body matters to your health:

Aluminum is a toxic metal. It can be tightly bound in your tissues and fat cells. Aluminum affects the body in many ways including inhibiting the uptake of dopamine, norepinephrine, and 5 HTP. Having aluminum toxicity can cause memory loss, loss of coordination, confusion, and disorientation. It also can lead to many harmful conditions listed below.

Yikes! How Does Aluminum Get Into Our Bodies?

Lots of ways...using antiperspirant containing aluminum, using cookware made of aluminum (such as cookie sheets), using aluminum foil for cooking, drinking from aluminum cans, drinking tap water (aluminum is often added to city water), using baking powder containing aluminum, bleached flour, and processed cheese.

Today children are often born with elevated aluminum that is passed from mother to fetus through the placenta.

"Oh no! I probably have aluminum in my body and so do my kids!

Have no fear...I can help you with this! In addition to running a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Lab Test at home to check for heavy metals in your system, here are some great ways to start reducing your intake of aluminum

  • swap your antiperspirant with aluminum free products (Native and Schmidt's make cleaner deodorants...available at Target and other stores)

  • use safer cookware made from glass, cast iron, or stainless steel. Line your baking pans with parchment paper or silicone mats

  • ditch the aluminum cans and drink from a glass

  • buy a water filter for your home. A reverse osmosis system is best, and you can also use a table top model from https://www.berkeyfilters.com

  • use unbleached flour and aluminum free baking powder

Every year I complete an 8 week Heavy Metal Detox

It's very easy to do. I use all natural herbal supplements that draw the metals out and help them to be excreted from my system. I have never experienced any side effects, and there are no dietary changes to make.

Interested in lab testing or reducing your heavy metal burden? 'd be happy to help!
