The Professional Heavy Metal Screen Test
In 1925 Helmut Fisher of the Siemens Concern in Berlin succeeded in detecting heavy metal ions by means of a dithizone process. As a reagent, dithizone is able to indicate the presence of heavy metal ions in qualitative and in quantitative terms at the lower ppm level, even at the ppb level.
The reaction times of the heavy metal ions vary; therefore, depending on their respective concentrations, different colorations may occur from which one can, in addition to the qualitative conclusions (the dithizone reagent binds to Cu, Zn,Cd, Hg, Pb, Mn, Co,Ni,) draw also quantitative ones regarding the contaminant.
This screen test allows the detection of free heavy metal ions in bodily liquids such as urine. The contamination from amalgam fillings or from the environment pointing to infections, organ or system disorders as well as potential health problems can be identified.
By taking the biological space of the essential minerals, heavy metals are blocking the absorption of essential minerals and simultaneously a toxic accumulation of unbound zinc and copper ions occurs.
At this stage of the contamination, the discharge of copper and zinc ions from the organism are toxics (free electrically active) metals and they can be made visible with the screen test.
The valuable essential metals copper and zinc have, in effect, become toxic metals.
Therefore when checking the urine for heavy metals, toxic amounts of copper and zinc will always show up first during the test procedure and indicate the presence of heavy metals in the body.
Up to a certain point, a healthy body is able to bind (chelate) free heavy metal atoms, i.e. neutralize their electromagnetic charge and clear them out. If this mechanism is no longer able to function because too many toxins have accumulated in the organism, the number of free radicals will increase, especially if the body is suffering an antioxidant deficiency at the same time. In such cases, administering antioxidant supplements will not solve the real problem, namely the accumulation of heavy metal ion deposits in the body.
The need for detoxification is established before any specific therapy is administered. The test reagent is therefore an important aid during the initial evaluation. As it is urgent that necessary counter-measures be implemented in the patient’s detoxification therapy, a method to expose and monitor heavy metals becomes crucial.
