Empowering Your Health: Understanding Toxic Metal Exposure and Preparing for a Healthy Pregnancy

Updated: Nov 6, 2023

Written By: Balanced Friends

At Balanced Friends, we emphasize the importance of functional medicine lab testing for toxic metals. Our accessible at-home testing provides valuable insights into your health. Elevated toxic metals in lab results often correlate with persistent, undesirable symptoms. Among our private wellness clients, these are some of the most frequently observed

Symptoms of Toxic Metals

  • Persistent Headaches

  • Joint Pain

  • Skin Inflammation (Rashes/Acne)

  • Unusual Skin Pigmentation

  • Tingling Sensations in Extremities

  • Episodes of Nausea or Vomiting

  • Increased Sweating

  • Chronic Inflammation

  • Heart Arrhythmia or Palpitations

  • Autoimmune Challenges

In today's world, where toxins are prevalent, it's crucial to prioritize heavy metal detoxification. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, there's no need to worry! There are effective, natural ways to help your body eliminate these harmful metals at home. We designed a metals detox bootcamp to provide you with a practical step-by-step guide on safely purging your body from these metals. You can learn more about our program here!

Mercury and aluminum are consistently prevalent in our clients' labs at elevated levels. These neurotoxins can be harmful to the brain. Here are common sources of mercury and aluminum:

  • Cooking with Aluminum Foil

  • Deodorants, Cosmetics, Makeup

  • Canned Foods & Beverages

  • Silver Dental Fillings

  • Consuming Tuna Fish

  • Vaccinations

  • Certain Medications like Antacids

  • Products with High Fructose Corn Syrup

For those on a fertility journey, we strongly recommend checking these levels BEFORE pregnancy. This allows your body time to naturally detoxify if necessary. Detoxing these metals during pregnancy or while breastfeeding is neither safe nor feasible. As mothers, we have the privilege of nurturing our children in our wombs. It's our responsibility to provide them with the healthiest start possible. This sets the foundation for a vibrant life from their very first breath.
