THE HEAVY METAL TEST 

The scientifically documented Heavy Metal Screen Test allows the detection of free electrically active heavy metal ions in an aqueous solution by means of a simple procedure, and in just a few minutes. This exploratory procedure, employed as an in vitro screen tool, is based on the dithizone reaction method that has been known to chemical science for more than 60 years.

Which metals can be tested?
Copper Zinc Mercury Cadmium Lead Nickel

What are the primary benefits?

  • Ability to check if heavy metals are present in drinking water.
  • Ability to quickly and conveniently obtain the heavy metal urine concentration or detoxification capacity.
  • Ability to track the heavy metal concentration or detoxification capacity over time as you supplement with detoxification (chelation) products.
  • The assessment of the heavy metal concentration or detoxification capacity may serve as an early indicator associated with heavy metal intoxification.

What can be tested?

  • urine can be tested for various heavy metals
  • sputum can be tested for the release of mercury ions into the oral cavity depending on the surface condition of amalgam filings
  • water from the faucet can be tested for various heavy metals
  • dishes or glasses can be tested for heavy metal content
  • dust, dirt, paint or other substances such as food, etc. can be tested for heavy metal content
Interpretation
The Dithizone heavy metal reagent only binds to the unbound or free metal ions. In other words, those metals which have not been neutralized by the body and therefore increasing the free radical production a million times, are screened. In a healthy body, with a functioning detoxification system, or in the absence of Heavy Metals, there should be no “high”, or “medium” amounts of free metals found in the urine! The sooner the green color changes, the higher the metal concentration in the urine! The type of metal present is actually secondary, since all free metal ions are toxic to our bodies causing free radical damage.

Thus the presence of a high to medium concentration of unbound metal ions may indicate a heavy metal toxicity problem. (The body is not able to cope anymore with free metal ions.)

If the test does show a low metal concentration – even though the person shows all signs of heavy metal intoxication – it is very likely that at this stage of metal toxicity, the body's detoxification capacities (through liver, kidneys, intestine, etc.) are totally exhausted. Ask your health care professional for further investigation. Each metal can occur in acute form. There may be further heavy metals, not visible for the time being and concealed behind such concentrations. A grey coloration of the test is evidence of such metal conglomerate.

Be advised though, that this is not a comprehensive test, as sometimes, heavy metals are embedded in the body and might not show up in the urine.
