Do you have amalgam fillings (the silver ones)? Or did your mother?
You could have high heavy metals as these fillings can leak toxic substances like mercury into the body. Mercury could still be an issue even if you have had your amalgam fillings removed as the mercury can be stored in your body. Mercury can be passed onto a child from the mother during pregnancy.
Mercury is toxic to our body and pushes out some of our very important minerals zinc, iodine and selenium. These minerals are extremely important for many functions in the body. If you have low zinc you may have concentration issues, a foggy head, poor immunity, twitches or digestive issues. If you have low iodine you may have hypothyroid symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, hair loss, dry skin or hair, cold intolerance or muscle loss; even though your bloods are in normal range. And low selenium can cause thyroid issues; selenium is also needed for the creation of glutathione peroxidase which is believed to help prevent cancerous cell changes in your body.
