A healthier and happier you begins on the inside and so this is why it is so important to detox your body from time to time. Our bodies accumulate heavy metals from either environmental pollution or consuming toxic foods and drinks. Heavy metals can even be ingested in unexpected ways.
Sly Ways Heavy Metals Get In The Body
There are some sneaky ways heavy metals get ingested in the body that you might not know. Heavy metals can contaminate public water, such as the case in the Flint Water crisis where heavy amounts of lead was found. But, high levels of lead didn’t just happen to Flint, Michigan. In fact, a Reuters research study found high levels of lead in children blood in 21 states!
“In all, Reuters found nearly 3,000 areas with recently recorded lead poisoning rates at least double those in Flint during the peak of that city’s contamination crisis. And more than 1,100 of these communities had a rate of elevated blood tests at least four times higher.”
Not only can heavy metals be ingested via drinking water, but less obvious ways like in cosmetics and beauty products. Yes!
Heavy Metals In Cosmetics
Your eye shadow, eyeliner, lipstick, moisturizer, blush, hair dye and even sunscreen can contain heavy metals. Currently mercury is allowed by the FDA to be in cosmetics as a preservative in eye makeup. Skin lightening products contain mercury. Additionally, if you’re looking to pucker up and add a little color to your lips, some lipstick and lip-gloss contain lead, cadmium, chromium, manganese, and aluminum. Specifically, high levels of cadmium are stored in the kidneys and can cause renal failure.
EWG’s Skin Deep offers a database for women concerned about safe makeup that is free of heavy metals.
Why Detox: Other Ways Heavy Metals Enter The Body
Other ways heavy metals enter the body can be as simple as the lead from your house and car keys. You might not know it, but certain furniture can contain heavy metals. The e-cigarette fad, while it has helped some stop smoking cigarettes, contains cadmium, that causes kidney and neurological damage.
High ingestion of cadmium also causes mental disorders. In fact, research was conducted on 30 violent offenders and 19 nonviolent offenders. Each group received tests for lead and cadmium levels. The violent offenders had significantly higher levels of lead and cadmium.
While the more obvious ways to absorb, heavy metals are the following:
- Old dental fillings
- Pesticides and Herbicides
- Pharmaceutical Drugs
- Alcohol & Drugs
- Air pollution
Detox For Weight Loss
A body detox, not only helps to expel toxic heavy metals, but also helps to shed extra pounds. If you are looking to lose weight, the first place to start is looking at your detox options. Juices, drinks and detox teas make for an easy detox plan.
Many people fast from food for 2-3 days and go on a liquid diet. Liquid diets offer your digestive system a healthy break while cutting back on calories. Drastically cutting calories actually slows your metabolism down to save energy. Therefore, liquid diets are short-term weight loss solution and should be done in conjunction with exercise.
