Toxic Heavy Metals and Chronic Symptoms

More than half of young Americans have at least one chronic illness. A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found 53.8% of young adults ages 18-34 have a chronic illness, and 22.3% have more than one. The number of adults with chronic diseases is also expected to rise.

According to Medical Medium, the two biggest contributors to chronic illness and chronic symptoms are pathogens and toxic heavy metals.

These metals mess with our brains and our decision-making skills, making us do things we don't want to do. They disrupt the electricity inside our heads, making it hard for us to think clearly and express ourselves. They can also inflame our digestive tract and feed harmful bacteria and viruses in our bodies. Toxic heavy metals can take over our bodies and minds, affecting us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

A recent study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology shows that lead, cadmium, and mercury have varying negative effects on human brain development and cognition.

The extensive list of conditions associated with toxic heavy metals is dishearteningly long, including ADHD, ALS, alzheimers, autism, bipolar disorder, brain fog, brain inflammation, cerebral palsy, chronic anxiety, depression, depersonalization, dementia, dyslexia, eczema, chronic headaches & migraines, child sensory issues or learning disabilities, insomnia, neurological fatigue, parkinsons, psoriatic arthritis, psychosis, strokes, tics, tremors & spasms, and many others.

How do we come into contact with toxic heavy metals? 

Exposure can occur through various avenues:

  • Inheriting them from our ancestors, which can date back thousands of years, as both sperm and the womb can carry various toxic heavy metals.

  • Direct contact with substances like aluminum foil, aluminum cans, batteries, and more.

  • Consumption of fish oil supplements or certain seafood that is high in mercury.

  • Use of aluminum pots, pans, and utensils.

  • Use of pharmaceuticals containing heavy metals.

  • Mercury fillings.

  • Tattoo ink (even vegan ones).

  • Exposure to air fresheners, scented candles, perfumes, or any product containing fragrance, as well as beauty products and cosmetics.

  • Interaction with pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides, all of which contain toxic elements like copper, mercury, lead, cadmium, barium, etc.

  • + more

However, the aim here isn't to incite panic. It's about awareness and learning how to minimize exposure while working on purging these metals from our bodies.

How to Detox

The safest and most important way to start removing metals from the body is by drinking Medical Medium's Heavy Metal Detox smoothie. The smoothie contains 5 key ingredients that work together to extract deep-rooted metals from the body. 

Wild blueberries: Extract heavy metals from your brain tissue, facilitating the healing and closure of any gaps formed due to oxidation during the metal removal process. The robust antioxidants in wild blueberries actively reverse any oxidative harm lingering from heavy metal elimination.

Barley grass juice extract powder: Has the ability to pull heavy metals out of crucial organs like the spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system. Additionally, barley grass juice extract primes mercury for thorough absorption by spirulina.

Spirulina: Extracts heavy metals from vital areas such as the brain, central nervous system, and liver, while also absorbing heavy metals drawn out by barley grass juice extract powder.

Cilantro: Removes metals from deeper organs such as the brain, liver, intestinal tract and safely carries them out of the body.

Atlantic dulse: Binds to mercury, lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. It navigates deep within the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury and securely binding to it, ensuring its safe passage out of the body. Additionally, Atlantic dulse acts as a failsafe, guaranteeing that all heavy metals reaching the colon are effectively expelled from the body.

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie Recipe


2 bananas

2 cups frozen or fresh wild blueberries, or 2 ounces pure wild blueberry juice, or 2 tablespoons pure wild blueberry powder

1 cup tightly packed fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon barley grass juice powder

1 teaspoon spirulina

1 tablespoon Atlantic dulse or 2 dropperfuls Atlantic dulse liquid

1 orange, juiced

1⁄2 to 1 cup water, coconut water, or additional fresh-squeezed orange juice (optional)


In a high speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. If a thinner consistency is desired, add up to 1 cup of water. Optional: Water, coconut water or fresh orange juice to blend.

Remember, consistency is key. It takes time to remove heavy metals so drink the smoothie daily for the best results. Work with a practitioner for additional guidance and create a plan that helps you remove these metals from the body to become symptom-free.

Cheers to health and to starting your journey towards eliminating chronic symptoms!
