Do I Need Heavy Metal Detox? Possibly.

By Bren Boston, MD

Could my headaches, mood swings, insomnia, nervousness, irritability, joint pains, tingling, or fatigue be from exposure to heavy metals?  The answer is possibly.

Heavy metals, like mercury, arsenic, and lead, surround us in our environment.  Our body’s internal detoxification process can handle a certain low level of exposure to heavy metals.  If the level of exposure overwhelms our ability to excrete the metals, then we can be left with symptoms that require treatment.

However, the brain is not the only place this important neurotransmitter is produced. We now know that more serotonin is produced in our intestines than in our brains. Yes, there ...
