Antimony Part 2: The impact of Antimony toxicity and how to deal with it
It is all very well to know that antimony load and toxic effects are part of the problem for your child or yourself, but what do you do about it now? Bio-Resonance therapy and naturopathic treatment can help to assess which of the binders and detoxification support can be used alongside homeopathic treatment to address this toxic burden.
Other impacts of Antimony toxicity
Suppresses white blood cell levels causing immune suppression
Can cause iron deficient anaemia, similar to arsenic toxicity
Cardiotoxicity - heart pathology is associated with antimony exposure. Antimony predisposes people to heart attacks and diseases of heart muscle (cardiomyopathies).
Impairs the ability of the cell to concentrate magnesium and potassium, which has a host of serious side effects - low magnesium can be associated with heart problems, calcium metabolism derangement, cramps, confusion, weakness, anger, hyperactivity (low GABA) depression, High blood pressure etc
Anitmony also blocks Zinc and Selenium metabolism
Antimony may reduce testosterone levels in men
Antimony may cause digestive dysfunction, largely due to the slowing of digestive processes, gas, bloating, variable stool, colic.
Rashes like chicken pox
Children and adults with antimony toxicity have emotional symptoms such as ‘don’t like to be touched or looked at, are sulky, peevish, irritable.
Loss of muscle reflexes and numbness
Also very synergistic with arsenic as a toxin.
Antimony excess can cause excess ammonia, inosine and uric acid - similar to ‘purine autism’ where purine metabolism is dysfunctional.
Can inhibit the metabolism of adenosine
Antimony is used as a flame retardant in textiles and carpets - the action of mild mildew mould can release antimony in a volatile form. *** I think this is extremely important in the case of autism and other diagnoses or symptoms where mould exposure is linked to the onset or worsening of symptoms. This is highly significant as it means that what can appear as mycotoxin stress from a case history may in fact be intertwined with antimony toxicity
Curtains, upholstery, carpets, even children’s pyjamas and clothing may be treated with antimony as a flame retardant.
Lead solder in pipes may contain antimony.
In the production of polyesters, and polyethylene resins, fibres and films. - many are used for food or beverage containers!
Phosphorecent light tubes
Lubricants such as motor oil
Antimony toxicity may be supported with homeopathic treatment, binders and chelation agents include DMSA, DMPS and ALA. TMG, B12, B9 may improve clearance.
Supportive therapy is Magnesium, Potassium, Carnitine, CoQ10, Crataegus
High protein carb restricted diet can make antimony victims feel better.
How Antimony toxicity can appear in hair mineral and bio-resonance analysis
Other signs of mercury problems include elevated hair levels of aluminium, nickel, tin or titanium. This combination is frequently seen in Bio-Resonance Results and indicates antimony toxicity as a possible causative or contributing factor to consider.
