Effects of Aluminum
elevated levels of aluminum can influence memory disturbances in adults
as well as hyperactivity and learning disorders in children. When it is
deposited in the gray matter of the brain, it will inhibit nerve
transport, increase the breakdown of various neurotransmitters, and
stimulate the production of harmful proteins. The consequences of
aluminum deposits can include seizures, a decreased ability to learn,
impaired motor coordination, memory loss, and even anxiety and psychotic reactions.
Giant cross-linked proteins are formed when molecular chains of polyvalent metals (which have more than one
electrical charge in an atom), proteins and nucleic acids (either RNA or
DNA) combine together with other long protein molecules. Cross-linked protein is no
longer able to function normally and cannot be split or hydrolyzed as is
usually done by enzymes present in the blood. This creates stiffness
or brittleness in the tissues as the molecules become locked into
position by the cross-linked proteins.
No matter how aluminum enters the body, it is dangerous for the brain. Patients who died of
Alzheimers, Lou Gerhigs disease (ALS) and Parkinsonism with dementia have high aluminum and mercury levels.
It readily enters
into cross-linkage within the body's proteins and acts to immobilize
reactive molecules within the brain cells. It causes free-radical
pathology inside neurons. Free radical damage of brain cells brings on
molecular cross-linkage throughout the brains tissues.
neurotoxicity is increased by intake of other metallic
ions such as arsenic, cadmium, iron, lead, manganese, mercury or other
toxic metals. A low intake of zinc contributes to retention of many
heavy metals as well as a higher sensitivity to their effects. When it replaced calcium in low amounts in in vitro neuron
studies, the action potential was blocked, decreasing spontaneous
nervous discharge and reducing nervous activity.
About 80% of aluminum
binds to the chromatin (genetic material) in all cells but it induces changes only in
certain vulnerable neurons, especially those with dendritic trees in the central nervous system.
Detoxification and Nutritional Balancing
Clearing aluminum from the body is well worth the trouble as it is often a cause or contributor to all types of chronic illnesses especially fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, sleep apnea, hyperactivity and anxiety.
Release of aluminum and other heavy metals from the tissues is achieved
by avoiding the various sources as best you can and enhancing cellular energy production by
supplying nutrients required for the energy pathway. Balancing the
oxidation rate, enhancing the activity of the eliminative organs,
especially the kidneys and the use of non-toxic chelating agents such as
Vitamin C, promote the excretion of the metal from the body. Any
therapies which improve the activity of the liver, kidneys, bowel and
skin can be helpful. Natural zeolite crystals such as Results RNA Advanced Cellular Zeolite, are particularly helpful for the discomforts of aluminum detox.
To release aluminum from the tissues, the need for this adaptation or crutch must be removed. Nutritional Balancing protocols properly given based on a metabolic hair tissue mineral analysis, will balance the oxidation rate, improve the adrenal function and increase the bio-availability of essential nutrients such as zinc, copper, iron, manganese and calcium allows the body to mobilize and excrete all types of toxicity.
As the Nutritional Balancing process continues, biochemical energy production in the cells is restored, and the body's natural ability to chelate and excrete heavy metal resumes.
Anxiety, insomnia, joint pain, muscle cramping, bladder irritation and digestive symptoms can occur as the aluminum is mobilized from tissue storage to be released through the kidneys. The Results RNA Zeolite is very helpful in improving detoxification and reducing the severity of any detox symptoms. Extra magnesium is especially helpful when releasing aluminum. Epsom salt baths can be very helpful.
