Take Action Against Environmental Toxins
Increasing levels of pollution and use of chemicals in industry has caused a rise in heavy metal toxicity which is a growing threat to our health. Toxicity may be difficult to recognized as early signs and symptoms can be similar to other health conditions.
Heavy Metals and Toxic Elements Test
Test for Blood Samples:
Analytical Method: ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry), the most advanced technology and gold standard in heavy metals testing.
When to consider heavy metals testing?
Consider heavy metals testing when you experience the following:
- Long term exposure to pollution and industrial areas
- Consistent Headache and Fatigue
- Consistent High Blood Pressure and Numbness of Hands and Feet
- Normal Blood Tests but still unwell
- Hardened skin patches and white bands on fingernails
- Abdominal or Chest Pain
