Heavy metals toxicity can be caused by exposure to pollution, chemicals and poisons . It is a growing threat to the population as metals deposit in body tissues leading significant developmental and neurological damage.  Heavy metal toxicities can also lead to numerous health conditions including those affecting the cardiovascular, endocrine, immune, muscle, skeletal, skin and nervous systems.

Blood analysis provides the best diagnostic tool for assessing the status of metals and minerals that improve cellular function. Blood element levels are useful for assessing cardiac influences, anti-inflammatory processes, anaemia, immunological function and particularly toxic levels of metals.
