The symptoms of heavy metal toxicity may include:
- low body temperature or chills
- sensitive teeth or a metallic taste in the mouth
- prone to allergies
- muscle weakness, twitches, and sensitivity
- frequent illness.
Heavy metals are, unfortunately, found all around us. They’ve been found in our soil, in our water, on our produce, in the lead or copper pipes in our homes, and in pharmaceuticals.
The greatest source of heavy metals is vaccines. Because vaccines are injected into muscular tissue and the bloodstream, the ingredients do not easily detox. Heavy metals, namely aluminum and mercury, are still found in vaccines today. (source) Your state, like mine, may have passed a law outlawing the use of thimerisol-containing vaccines, however, you may find that your state health department, like mine, exempts itself from that law each year. (source)
Some believe vaccines no longer contain mercury, but this is sadly not the truth. In the U.S., the flu shot may contain up to 50,000 ppb (parts per billion) of mercury. Two ppb of mercury is the EPA limit for drinking water. 200 ppb is considered the level at which a liquid is classified as hazardous waste by the EPA. There’s 250 times more mercury in just one flu shot.
Tests and symptoms to determine if you need a detox
Most of us would benefit from a heavy metal detox, but you are particularly susceptible to heavy metal toxicity if you:
- have ever received a vaccine
- taken a pharmaceutical medication
- consume non-organic produce
- live in a home built before 1970
- have unfiltered water through lead or copper pipes.
What I am about to present to you is something that is fairly rare to see in children so young as 5 years old, but that is the exact age of the child in the photo supplied below.
What you are seeing, is the yellow arrows pointing to a copper arsenite deficiency, which is indicated by very light, inside corners of the eyes. Copper arsenite is a natural chelator of heavy metals.
In the pink arrows, we are looking at a selenium deficiency, indicated by the indents on the sides of the nose, just beside the inside corners of the eyes. And most of you may know, that selenium is the single greatest chelator of Mercury and lead.
The black arrows are pointing to multiple lines on the lower eyelids, that work their way outward and then begin to turn down the outsides of the cheeks. This is a calcium sulfide deficiency, which is responsible for carrying mercury, lead and aluminum out of the body.
The collection of these 3 facial signs, indicates to me that this young child is full of heavy metals, but it doesn’t necessarily depict which heavy metal. That is something that would need to be identified specifically, and normally through muscle testing.
Something else I would like to point out to you, is that if you look between the 2 yellow arrows, you will see a wrinkle, on the bridge of this child’s nose.
The folds that are indicated, are often thought to be associated with the natural signs of aging, but this is one more example that this is not an aging issue, it is a deficiency issue.
In this particular case, the child’s deficiencies all surround nutritional/dietary minerals that are responsible for clearing heavy metals in the human body.
Because we can now assume heavy metals toxicity, we can correlate the child’s issues with expected end results of such defiencies, and in this case we would expect behavioral issues, likely fatigue, brain fog and difficulty retaining information… Etc. all as a result of heavy metals toxicity.
Because the mother of the child in the photo has asked me to heavily crop the image, to mask their child’s identity, I’m not able to show you that on the forehead of this particular child, horizontal lines are forming, and there is puffiness above the brow and throughout the forehead. Also a sign of heavy metals.
How to detox heavy metals safely
Dr Tim: I want you all to know that I do not recommend straight chelation therapy, because it is just as much risk of simply moving around the heavy metals as are is of it leaving or exiting the body.
In the case of this child, I would recommend selenium, copper, calcium sulfide and silica. In case you’re wondering, why silica… Silica will bind to heavy metals and help carry them out of the body where chelators will simply bind and that’s it. Silica will build and compound upon all heavy metals, forcing them out of deep tissue and help carry them of the body.
While these tissue salts or trace minerals are also considered homeopathic’s, they actually are not. They are nutrition, and they are recommended, at least by me, at nutritional levels, to permit the body to do what it’s intended to do when utilizing optimal nutrition.
The potencies that would be used in this case would be selenium, silica and copper arsenite at 12 X potency, while calcium sulfide would be at a 6 X potency. Since the child weighs 55 pounds, they would receive one tablet, 2 times daily and they would take it sublingually, under the tongue and allowed to dissolve.

Evidence supports the role of heavy metals in causing autism, PDD and ADHD. These children often have biochemical impairments that put them at greater risk for damage caused by heavy metal accumulation.
