Antimony heavy metal toxicity

Do you have antimony toxicity?  Get yourself tested here.

Antimony is a toxic heavy metal to humans and has serious health implications for those that may be toxic with antimony.  When your body accumulates antimony over time it influences and raises your blood cholesterol while at the same time can decrease your blood sugar level.

People are exposed to antimony everyday which makes the rising cases of blood cholesterol problems and blood sugar imbalances an obvious reason for testing for antimony toxicity.  Antimony is found in our drinking water and food supply, it is often the result of petroleum refining, it is used in industrial products such as lead-acid batteries, ball-bearings, fire retardants, in cosmetics (eye liner) and used in the making of alloys.  So the real question is are you toxic with antimony?

Symptoms of antimony toxicity

Symptoms associated with antimony vary depending on the amount you are currently exposed to, here are some of the more common symptoms:

  • Raised blood cholesterol (LDL)
  • Gallstones
  • Heart disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Increased lipoprotein A
  • Arterial blockage
  • Diabetes
  • Anxiety, shakiness or nervousness
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Syndrome X
  • Increased hunger
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness or light-headedness
  • Tumors

Additional symptoms of antimony toxicity

Because antimony can influence cholesterol and blood sugar many essential nutrients can be disrupted, therefore deficiency signs or symptoms of these main nutrients can be indications of possible antimony toxicity.

It’s important to understand that vitamin & mineral supplementation can NOT resolve antimony toxicity and may cover up symptoms leading to bigger problems.  Detoxification of antimony is essential to properly restoring vitamin and mineral imbalances.

Deficiencies of essential fatty acids such as Omgea’s 3, 6, 9, EPA, DHA (see symptoms here) can all be indications of antimony toxicity.

Vitamin C deficiency – Frequent colds, lack of energy, frequent infections, bleeding or tender gums, easy bruising, nosebleed, slow wound healing, red pimples on skin can all be indications of antimony toxicity.

Vitamin B3 deficiency – Lack of energy, diarrhea, insomnia, headaches or migraines, poor memory, anxiety or tension, depression, irritability, bleeding or tender gums, acne, eczema/dermatitis can all be indications of antimony toxicity.

Vitamin B6 deficiency – Infrequent dream recall, water retention, tingling hands, depression or nervousness, irritability, muscle tremors or cramps, lack of energy, flaky skin can all be indications of antimony toxicity.

Chromium deficiency – Excessive or cold sweats, dizziness or irritability after six hours without food, need for frequent meals, cold hands, need for excessive sleep or drowsiness during the day, excessive thirst, addiction to sweet foods can all be indications of antimony toxicity.

Zinc deficiency – Poor sense of taste or smell, white marks on more than two fingernails, frequent infections, stretch marks, acne or greasy skin, low fertility, pale skin, tendency to depression, loss of appetite can all be indications of antimony toxicity.

Antimony toxicity & genetics

Some people are genetically predisposed to antimony toxicity, this is because certain genes belonging to liver detoxification pathways that normally deal with antimony detoxification have been deleted, in these cases a genetics test can confirm and a specialized nutritional program can help the individual detoxify antimony.

Do you have antimony toxicity?

The best way to find out if you have toxic levels of antimony and or if you’re at risk from antimony related disease is by a hair mineral analysis, this simple home test shows if you are toxic and guidance can be given to how to detoxify the antimony in your situation as everyone is different.

People who have blood sugar problems and or raised cholesterol are encouraged to test for antimony toxicity.

Detoxification of antimony

Often people attempt to detoxify antimony without knowing if they have toxicity and without knowing the best ways to achieve results.  Many heavy metal detoxification supplements on the market do not work and often contain toxic heavy metals themselves.

Antimony is a very toxic metal and each person who has been exposed to the metal is affected in different ways, this can cause detoxification problems.

It’s important to have yourself tested by professionals that can guide you through the detoxification process that will work for you personally.  It’s also possible that you may have a gene mutations which can make any basic detoxification program useless and or harmful.
