Toxic & Essential Elements

Elements are the basic building blocks of all chemical compounds, and human exposure to them occurs both from natural and anthropogenic sources. Many elements are considered nutrients and are essential for the proper functioning of the body. These are generally divided between macrominerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc, and trace minerals, including selenium, iodine, boron, and molybdenum.

Conversely, there are a number of elements that are toxic to the human body, interfere with its functioning and undermine health—such as mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, and arsenic. These toxic metals have no known physiological functions. They can be toxic to organ systems and may disrupt the balance of essential nutrients. Toxic metals and essential element status can be assessed in urine, blood, feces and hair.

BMS Clinic has always employed the best-available techniques as a specialist and pioneer in essential and toxic elemental testing. In fact, we were one of the first clinical reference laboratories in the world to employ ICP-MS and high-resolution ICP-MS for elemental analysis.

Reminders of preparation for the test:

  1. If you have any allergies, G6PD, or Kidney problems, please let your doctor know.
  2. If possible, avoid eating deep-sea fish and shell seafood before a week of collecting samples.
  3. Two days before collect samples, stop consuming supplements.

Heavy Metal Testing Result

Hair Elements
Hair Elements analysis provides information regarding recent and ongoing exposure to potentially toxic metals, especially methylmercury and arsenic, and the time-averaged status of specific nutrient elements. This non-invasive screening test requires only 0.25 grams of hair. Doctor's Data offers a Hair Elements profile containing essential and toxic elements and a Hair Toxic Element Exposure profile containing an expanded lineup of toxic metals.
Urine Toxic Metals
Urine Elements are traditionally used to evaluate exposure to potentially toxic elements and wasting of nutrient elements. Additionally, the comparison of urine element concentrations before and after administration of a chelator can be used to estimate the net retention of potentially toxic elements. Subsequent urine element analyses, also following the administration of a chelator, are useful for monitoring the efficacy of metal detoxification therapy.

Through heavy metal testing, understanding personal health

Conversely, several elements are toxic to the human body, interfere with its functioning, and undermine health—such as mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, and arsenic. These toxic metals have no known physiological functions. They can be intoxicated to organ systems and may disrupt the balance of essential nutrients. Assessing Toxic metals and the status of the essential elements can be found in urine, blood, feces, and hair. Heavy metal testing can prevent heavy metals damage to organs. Reduce exposure to heavy metals in daily life. Also, be mindful of daily meals. Suggesting include Heavy metal testing in health checks yearly, which can make the health test more complete.

If heavy metals exceed the number of organ cells it can tolerate, it will damage the organ, causing anemia, diarrhea, nausea, and other symptoms.
