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?

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.
