Neurotoxicity occurs when toxins accumulate in the neurological tissue of the body and undermine the functioning of the brain and nervous system. Long-term exposure to radiation, chemicals, food additives, pesticides, and other naturally occurring substances can cause neurotoxicity. Prolonged exposure to heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, iron, or aluminum (heavy metal toxicity) also can lead to neurotoxicity, as can exposure to poisonous plants, animals, or molds.
The painful symptoms of neurotoxicity are similar to the symptoms of a variety of other disease conditions, such as fibromyalgia, migraine or chronic headaches, depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), chronic fatigue syndrome, recurrent sinus infections or chronic sinusitis and asthma that is unresponsive to conventional therapy. Neurotoxicity symptoms can also mimic those of certain autoimmune diseases, such as Celiac disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and psoriatic or rheumatoid arthritis.
The problem is, if the underlying cause of your pain or illness is biotoxicity or neurotoxicity, and your treatment plan does not include a detoxification regimen, your overall recovery is very likely to be incomplete and slower than it needs to be.
