Platinum, is it toxic?

Do you have platinum toxicity?  Get yourself tested here.

Platinum toxicity is a real problem when it comes to your health, platinum is a toxic heavy metal and most people are exposed to platinum on a daily basis which means that it can accumulate in your body over time and cause serious health problems.  You will be told that “noble” metals like gold and platinum and silver are OK, that they are “inert” and do not corrode or seep. Nothing could be more un-true.

Platinum can cause “platinum sensitivity symptoms”.  Platinum toxicity has the ability to cause DNA alterations, cause cancer, allergic reactions of the skin and mucous membranes, it can cause damage to organs such as the kidneys and intestines and has been known to damage hearing ability.

Platinum can be found in jewelry, from mining, in metal tooth filling amalgams, it is used in the making of silicone rubber and gels including medical implants such as breast implants, joint replacements and vehicle emission control devices.  So the real question is are you toxic with Platinum?

Symptoms of platinum toxicity

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

  • Allergic reactions of the skin & or mucous membranes
  • Kidney disease’s
  • Intestinal & digestive problems
  • Muscle spasms
  • High blood pressure (Hypertension)
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Adverse heath condition after medical implants
  • Allergies to rubber, silicone & gels

Additional symptoms of platinum toxicity

One of the big problems with platinum toxicity is that it can disrupt essential nutrients such as magnesium & selenium, therefore deficiency symptoms of these nutrients can also be signs or symptoms of platinum toxicity.  Further, becoming deficient in magnesium and or selenium can allow the accumulation of platinum in your body leading to toxicity.

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

Magnesium deficiency – Muscle tremors or spasms, muscle weakness, insomnia or nervousness, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, constipation, fits or convulsions, hyperactivity, depression, confusion, lack of appetite, calcium deposits in soft tissue such as kidney stones can all be indications of platinum toxicity.

Selenium deficiency – Family history of cancer, signs of premature aging, cataracts, high blood pressure, frequent infections can all be indications of platinum toxicity.

Platinum toxicity & genetics

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

People who have higher levels of exposure to platinum such as those who have had medical procedures involving medical implants of breast implants (silicone gels) & or joint replacements using platinum parts & those who have metal tooth filling amalgams are encouraged to get tested for platinum toxicity.

Detoxification of Platinum

Often people attempt to detoxify platinum 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.

Platinum 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.
