What Are Heavy Metals? The Impact of Heavy Metals on Well-being

Heavy Metals are metals with high density. They are at least 5 times denser than water. Some lighter metals are also categorized as heavy metals due to their toxicity at even very low concentration levels. With this said, examples of heavy metals include lead, mercury, chromium, aluminum, manganese, and arsenic, among others. These metals have been used in industry, agriculture, medicine, technology, and even at home. Their widespread use has caused a great distribution of these substances in the environment. Although some of these heavy metals can play an important role in our bodies, exposure to great amounts can negatively impact not only our health and well-being but also our planet’s ecosystems.

Intoxication by heavy metals is often associated with abdominal pain, polyneuropathy, and encephalopathy.

Some heavy metals such as copper are essential for our biological functioning. Excessive amounts of these metals become, nonetheless, toxic, leading to cellular and tissue damage. There are also non-essential metals such as aluminum and barium which can be toxic even at very low doses. Toxic amounts of heavy metals have been shown to affect cell membranes, their organelles (e.g. mitochondria, nuclei), and enzymes with important roles in metabolism, detoxification, and damage repair. In addition, metal ions interact with cell components such as DNA and nuclear proteins. Damage to the DNA leads to changes in the cycle of the cells and can cause carcinogenesis (formation of cancer) and apoptosis (cell death).

Depending on the metal, intoxication can produce distinct symptoms. However, overall symptoms include abdominal pain, polyneuropathy (damage or disease affecting the peripheral nerves causing numbness, weakness, or pain on hands and feet), and encephalopathy (brain dysfunction). Other symptoms include:

DiarrheaBody pain, inflammation, and swollenness
Cognitive changesSeizures
Personality changes
Symptoms associated with heavy metal intoxication

An important and less known source of heavy metals is geoengineering, the science of manipulating our climate. This science has been developed since, at least, World War II. One of its official aims is to reflect solar radiation to reduce the heating effect of sunlight. To achieve this goal, they have worked on several strategies. One of these strategies is to spray the sky with cocktails of nanoparticles that increase surface reflectance. Studies with rain and soil samples have shown that these nanoparticles include heavy metals such as aluminum, barium, and strontium. If you put two and two together it’s not hard to understand that chemtrails are real and not a conspiracy theory. Whatever is released into our atmosphere is also making us sick and not fixing the problem of climate change.

I spoke about my own personal experience with chemtrails on my most recent podcast episode. The more I research and the more I pay attention to my own health, the more I believe we are slowly but steadily getting sicker thanks to the massive pulverization of our sky, which is now happening on a global scale. While people have been kept busy with social distancing and washing hands, few of us have had the time to look at the sky and connect the dots. Whether this is due to lack of knowledge or willingness to face the truth, it’s evident that we must dig deeper and start looking at reality without the goggles that our TV sets and social media give us. It’s time we do our own old-school research and think critically about what is really going on in the world right now.

Why Decluttering Improves Your WellBeing & How To Do It In 3 Steps

After going through a decluttering session, you are likely to feel clearer and more energetic. This is a process that not only improves our physical space but also our headspace. We have more space both physically and mentally, which in turn gives us a certain sense of freedom and clarity. Such experience eventually overflows to…

  1. One of the reasons I moved to Italy (more than 20 years ago – eek) was to avoid pollution. In the UK we lived under the flight path for an airport and the smell of fuel in the air would be overwhelming from time to time. I deliberately chose to live here in Umbria, half way up a mountain in an organic olive oil producing area. Hopefully, cutting down the heavy metals as much as possible!

  2. Great post, just spotted this. 🙂 Wish more people would wake up and realise that the trails from planes are bad. :/ When I was in west London last week I saw three trails from planes above on a sunny blue sky day. Within half an hour the clouds had spread and created a nasty grey sky where the blue and sun wasn’t visible anymore, and omg the smell of metal on my clothes when I come home is horrible! 😦 Most days where I live begin with te sky being blue and become a white/grey colour almost everyday. I know ocassionally it’s possible that it’s natural, but I remember the long sunny blue days of my early childhood and it wasn’t so grey/white like it is these days. 😦

      1. Thank you I’ll check it out. It makes my mum angry sometimes as she often asks who gave them the right to mess with the planet. And such a shame more people dont notice. Our real skies is so beautiful. 😦

  3. You cover science too. I liked the research about new innovative ways to check up for the metals, plus pulverization was good info. Precise and sharp, liked it! Xx
