Heavy Metal Toxicity + Detoxing

Heavy Metals

We absorb heavy metals like mercury, arsenic, and lead into our blood stream from exposure to contaminated water, farmed fish, skincare products, dental fillings, and household products. Heavy metals penetrate the cells of our body and can remain there for years, accumulating in the body overtime, causing health problems. Heavy metals contribute to low energy, cognitive problems, and changes in mood. Cleansing the body of heavy metals is extremely important to have a healthy immune function, especially if one has amalgam fillings. Drink at least 64 ounces of distilled water daily to flush toxins and chemicals out of the body. Additionally, it is important to support the cleansing processes of your body so that these heavy metals don't stick around for long. 

Essential oils have the ability to support the body’s natural balance – even down to the cellular level. Below you’ll see oils and nutritionals recommended to take a look at that are known to support the body in its natural detoxing process.

We want to emphasize the importance of using only Young Living Essential Oils due to the fact that there is no regulation on essential oils, and Young Living is the ONLY company in the world to have their own farms and test every single batch of essential oil multiple times throughout the production process.

Aluminum Toxicity

Aluminum is a very toxic metal that can cause serious neurological damage in the human body—even in minute amounts. Aluminum has been implicated as a possible cause of many maladies in the body, especially Alzheimer’s disease.

People unwittingly ingest aluminum from their cookware, beverage cans, antacids, and even deodorants and other cosmetic compounds. The first step toward reducing aluminum toxicity in the body is to avoid these types of aluminum-based products. Start reading the labels and see for yourself.

BREATHE – let’s make this more simple…

Yes, there’s quite a few things that are available to help support your body, naturally! That’s great, right?

But does it really work?

Every body is different. However, the basic processes of them are very much the same. Elimination is KEY with detoxing – because where is it going to go if the body can’t get rid of it?

Besides supporting your body with essential oils and good, wholesome nutrition, we have to think about things that we use regularly that we should probably think about breaking up with:


Yes, the very thing we’ve been told to use to make ourselves stop the body’s natural process of elimination through the skin.

When the body cannot eliminate toxins through the bowels, urine, or lungs, it eliminates through the lymphatic system and the skin. When the skin is blocked with anti-perspirants, the body is forced to trap those toxins in, as well as adding the toxins (aluminum) associated with the anti-perspirant effect.

Essential oils and the AromaGuard deodorants from Young Living are wonderful alternatives to smelling good while allowing your body to detox optimally.


Conventional Cosmetics

Unfortunately, there are a lot of not-so-great ingredients that make up our conventional makeup. Our skin is the largest organ of our body and it is absorbing what we put on it. Switch to makeup that is free of all the junk ingredients. Learn more.
