Aluminum poisoning affects the neural tissue and spine; it can settle in the brain where it inhibits cell oxygenation (there is a definite relationship of aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease. Officially, it’s not known whether too much aluminum leads to Alzheimer’s, or if Alzheimer’s causes your brain to hold on to aluminum).
Mucous membranes are also greatly affected by this mineral. When exposed to aluminum, the sinuses produce more mucous (trying to rinse it out?), creating sinus drainage, which can lead to sore throat and lung congestion.
Or if the sinuses aren’t draining properly, a sinus infection can be the result.
Sources of Aluminum Toxicity
Aluminum poisoning can come from practically anywhere: beer and soda cans, aluminum foil and cookware, antacids and baking powder (get the NON-aluminum kind to bake with); it’s the active ingredient in antiperspirants.
Aluminum sulphate is sometimes added to foods to prevent caking, and to municipal water supplies to make the water less cloudy. Safe levels, of course 😉
Using commercial hair dyes, toothpaste, and baby powder can all lead to aluminum toxicity. Remember – heavy metal poisoning is cumulative. Read ingredients carefully.Chem Trails are another source of aluminum toxicity. Evidently, aluminum (when ground to a powder) can be added to jet fuel without adversely affecting the engines. Maybe this is why Chem Trails seem to glow in the moonlight.
Possible symptoms of poisoning from aluminum include Alzheimer’s disease, forgetfulness, stomach ulcers or stomach pain, chronic sinus problems, low thyroid, kidney problems (especially the right kidney), dry mouth, small, hard stools, babies who cry a lot.
How to Avoid Aluminum Poisoning
If you drink beer, stick to the small, specialized breweries. They’re more likely to be using stainless steel brew tanks and glass bottles.
Avoid sodas; it’s pretty difficult to find a brand that’s halfway healthy anyway. Even the organic ones are mostly empty calories.
Stainless steel cookware is probably safer than its aluminum counterpart; Pyrex® and Corningware® may be better. Practice eating more of your vegetables raw.
Read all ingredients carefully, whether it’s food or cosmetics. Use as few chemicals (read: stuff you can’t pronounce) as is practical.
The best remedy for aluminum poisoning is probably in the homeopathic realm. These formulas (or single remedies) can safely chelate heavy metal toxicity and take it out of your body.
