Heavy metal contamination (e.g., amalgam) When the nervous system is chronically poisoned
“I feel dizzy frequently,“ ”My oral mucosa is inflamed and develops ulcers with a black fringe,“ ”Sometimes I’m irritable, sometimes depressed.”
These signs may indicate chronic mercury exposure.
Mercury, a toxic heavy metal, is deposited in connective tissue and organs. For example, the amount of mercury in umbilical cord blood and children’s brains correlates with the number of amalgam fillings the mothers have.
The list of possible disorders is long, ranging from depression, irritability, sleep disturbances, dizziness, recurrent fungal diseases, to visual and hearing disorders. Long-term effects include kidney and liver damage and, most importantly, damage to brain tissue and the nervous system, which can lead to gait disorders and tremors during reaching movements.
How does Vedic Medicine view heavy metal exposure?
Heavy metal contamination (e.g., amalgam) from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, heavy metal contamination starts with the loss of natural balance.
Metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced – due to our way of life – which can accumulate everywhere in the body. Particularly harmful is the intake of heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum, which can cause various long-term damage to the nervous system and internal organs.
However, according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so each exposure to heavy metals is also different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, heavy metal contamination is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. Thus, in the case of heavy metal stress, the focus will be on mobilizing and systematically eliminating toxins through Ayurvedic treatments. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all put together especially for you – help you to lead a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers activate the elimination processes and you can find your way back to a lighter, unencumbered body feeling.
