Aluminum Toxicity

A normal, healthy body naturally heals from most types of conditions, whether from illness or injury. If you have a health condition that is not healing, there must be a barrier to your health that has to be identified and addressed. In this way your body can overcome that barrier and your ability to reach optimal health is possible.

Typical barriers to healing include stressed emotions, a weak immune system, food allergies and the effects of toxic chemicals and metals in the body. In the office, we identify what toxins are stuck in your body and give you supplements to help open the body's detox pathways so the body can detox it.  Helping the body by opening your natural detox pathways is important so the body can detox on it's own.   Patients are usually amazed at how fast healing starts with just a few key changes in their life.

Aluminum often comes up as a heavy metal that needs to be detoxed. So after testing patients for the supplement they need to help open up the body's own detox pathways, it's also important that they stop putting aluminum in their body. Metal toxicity can cause many different symptoms in the body including headaches, digestive issues, insomnia, depression, anxiety and much more.  Aluminum toxicity is known for causing Alzheimer's.

Where does aluminum toxicity come from and how to avoid it?

1. Aluminum cans

2. Aluminum foil

3. Aluminum take-out containers

4. Deodorant
Many aluminum-free deodorants are available including Raw 4 Beauty, Tom's, JASON, Native, and Every Man Jack. Here's also a great recipe for making your own!

5. Anti-acids
Maalox and Mylanta contain aluminum. Rolaids and Tums are alternatives that don't contain aluminum.

6. Aluminum pots, pans, baking sheets, scratched teflon
Cook with stainless steel, ceramic, glass and cast iron

7. Antidiarrheal Products
Watch labels carefully for any mention of aluminum salts.
Products containing loperamide such as Imodium AD usually do not contain aluminum salts.

8. Buffered Aspirin
Buffered aspirin can contain up to 14.4 to 88 milligrams of aluminum hydroxide or aluminum glycinate. Ordinary aspirin is aluminum free as are many other pain killers.

9. Douches
Many popular douche products contain aluminum salts. A homemade version of vinegar and water can be substituted.

10. Food Additives
Cake mixes, frozen doughs, self-rising flour, and sliced process cheese food all contain from 5 to 50 milligrams of sodium aluminum phosphate per average serving. Baking powder has 5 to 70 milligrams of sodium aluminum sulfate per teaspoon. Starch modifiers and anti caking agents also contain varying levels of aluminum compounds. The processed cheeses used on cheese burgers at fast food restaurants also contain aluminum, which is added to make the cheese melt better.

11. Shampoos
A number of anti-dandruff preparations contain magnesium aluminum silicate. Watch labels carefully for aluminum lauryl sulfate, which is a common ingredient in many popular shampoo products.
