Do you have titanium toxicity?  Get yourself tested here.

Titanium is not considered a toxic metal but it is a heavy metal and it does have serious negative health effects.  This common heavy metal is all around us on a daily basis so its no surprise that many people are found to have high levels in their body causing serious health problems.

Titanium has the ability to affect lung function causing lung diseases such as pleural disease, it can cause chest pain with tightness, breathing difficulties, coughing, irritation of the skin or eyes.  Titanium is carcinogenic and may also cause cancer.

Titanium is used in cosmetics including face and other powders, metal dental amalgams, medical industry such as medical equipment and implants or limb and joint replacements, jewelry and hardware equipment.  Titanium is also used in manufacture associated with packing, milling and is used in the cleaning industry so titanium ends up in your food and water supply.  Many metal products have titanium added to increase strength. Titanium oxide is added to many foods and supplements to make them appear white in color.  So the real question is are you toxic with titanium?

Symptoms of titanium toxicity

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

  • Lung diseases
  • Skin diseases (Eczema)
  • Sinus congestion
  • Cancer
  • Vision problems
  • Sexual weakness (Pre-mature ejaculation)
  • Bright’s disease (a disease involving chronic inflammation of the kidneys)
  • Lupus (any of various diseases or conditions marked by inflammation of the skin)

Additional symptoms of titanium toxicity

Titanium has the ability to interact with the essential mineral silica, therefore signs and or symptoms of silica deficiency can be an indication of a titanium excess.

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

Silica deficiency –  soft or brittle nails, premature wrinkles, thinning or loss of hair, poor bone development and osteoporosis can all be indications of titanium toxicity.

Titanium toxicity & genetics

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

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

People who have used cosmetics, have metal dental amalgams and people who have had titanium replacement surgery such as limbs and joint replacments are encouraged to test for titanium excess.

Detoxification of titanium

Often people attempt to detoxify heavy metals 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.

Titanium can cause serious health problems 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.
