Do you have zirconium toxicity?  Get yourself tested here.

Most people have never heard of zirconium but this toxic heavy metal is used in society everyday and its not uncommon to find some degree of zirconium toxicity in people.  Zirconium is toxic to humans and it is also radioactive, it is considered an irritant at low levels and higher levels are considered  immediately dangerous to life and health.

Zirconium regardless of it toxicity and radio-activeness is used in many of today’s common products such as cosmetics, deodorants, toothpaste, mouthwash and is used in the making the of composite resin amalgams fillings or to replace metal amalgams.  Zirconium is also used to make surgical appliances, glass, jewelry and is a sweat inhibitor.  So the real question is are you toxic with zirconium?

Symptoms of zirconium toxicity

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

  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Parasympathetic dominance
  • Hyperparathyoidism
  • Hypoclhorhydria
  • Poor digestion
  • Acne
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Fatigue
  • Hypoglycaemia
  • Transient hypertension
  • Carpopedal spasms
  • Cardiac irregularities
  • Skin irritation

Additional symptoms of zirconium toxicity

Zirconium toxicity also becomes a bigger problem when it replaces or increases the needs for essential nutrients such as potassium.  When potassium becomes depleted, zirconium takes it’s place and plays havoc with your health.  Deficiency symptoms of potassium are therefore indicators of possible zirconium toxicity.

Potassium deficiency – Rapid irregular heart beat, muscle weakness, pins and needles, irritability, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, swollen abdomen, cellulite, low blood pressure resulting from an imbalance of potassium to sodium ratio, confusion and mental apathy can all be indications of zirconium toxicity.

The dangers of zirconium toxicity

Zirconium toxicity as mention above can interfere with potassium which is an electrolyte, when this happens you can end up with low potassium and high sodium ratio putting you at serious risk of electrolyte imbalances which can be life threatening, some of the symptoms would include:

  • Acute stress
  • Adrenal imbalances (Chronic fatigue)
  • Inflammation or pain
  • Water retention
  • Edema
  • High blood pressure
  • Anger
  • Emotional stress
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease

Zirconium toxicity & genetics

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

Do you have zirconium toxicity?

The best way to find out if you have toxic levels of zirconium and or if you’re at risk from zirconium 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 zirconium in your situation as everyone is different.

Detoxification of zirconium

Often people attempt to detoxify zirconium 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.

Zirconium 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.
