Heavy metal toxicity displays itself in each individual differently and comes from many sources. Signs and symptoms of heavy metal exposure will vary in nature and intensity depending on the type and quantity of metal involved. Early symptoms of toxicity can be missed because they are often non-specific. Excessive exposure and damage to several different organs can occur even if you have no, few, or nonspecific symptoms. However, having some idea of what to look for can be very helpful as you try to determine if this is a possibility you should pursue.
Symptoms of Heavy Metal Toxicity:
Again, signs and symptoms of heavy metal toxicity are dependent on the type of metal that is present. If you are experiencing more than 5 of the symptoms from the list below please consider getting a hair analysis to evaluate your level of metal exposure:

- Nervous system symptoms such as numbness, tingling of hands and feet, weakness
- Kidney damage

- Burning Pain
- Over acid stomach
- Yeast overgrowth
