Detoxification is a cornerstone of my practice, before you detox from heavy metals you need to test for them to know what you are dealing with. If you suspect that you have heavy metal toxicity or show signs and symptoms of such, there are a number of easy ways to establish a baseline report of your heavy metal ‘burden’ by which you can then measure progress toward ridding your body of these neuro-toxins.
A local OC functional testing lab and nutraceutical provider, Quick Silver Scientific, is a leading innovator in heavy metal testing and detox. Run by Dr. Christopher Shade, a chemist whose PhD dissertation led to the development of the Mercury Tri-Test, Quick Silver is one of Natural Medicine Works trusted diagnostic partners and we carry many of their products.
Quick Silver provides testing and treatments on the cutting edge of genomics and functional medicine:
- Mercury tri-test: hair, blood and urine
- Methylated products for those carrying MTHFR
- Phase specific detoxification support
- GI Toxin Binder specifically formulated for Autism spectrum disorder
The Quick Silver Scientific website and videos on YouTube by Dr. Shade offer a wealth of information for those looking to learn more about heavy metal testing and detoxification, treatments for autism spectrum disorder and those with methylation disorder due to MTHFR associated gene snippets.
Got a question about getting tested with one of Quick SIlver’s diagnostics? Let me know in the comments.
