People cannot avoid all metals. MELISAÂ® hypersensitivity testing identifies those that should be avoided.
(prHWY.com) July 19, 2010 - Osceola, WI -- NeuroScience, Inc. (www.neuroscienceinc.com
), now offers MELISAÂ® testing to help people determine if metal sensitivity is making them sick. For some people, metal sensitivity is obvious, such as when a rash develops after contact with jewelry. For others, exposure to metals to which they are sensitive may cause the development of hidden inflammation, which can become chronic if not addressed. Chronic inflammation can lead to pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and/or other symptoms and diseases. Recent studies have identified that 2 out of 3 people with these and similar symptoms are sensitive to at least one metal, and 3 out of 4 people who are sensitive to one metal are also sensitive to others.
Most people do not know they have been exposed to metals or that metals are making them sick. Some of the most common sources of metals include food, candy, cookware, vitamins, cosmetics, toiletries, and jewelry. Medical sources of metals include dental fillings, medications, implanted medical devices, and vaccinations. MELISAÂ® testing not only aids in determining if individuals have metal sensitivity, but it also identifies which metals they should avoid.
Metal sensitivity is not the same as metal toxicity, which is due to high levels of metals in the body. Even extremely low levels of metals can make people feel sick if they are sensitive to them. People who are identified with metal sensitivity by MELISAÂ® should consider avoiding the metals to which they are sensitive. The MELISAÂ® test is available through healthcare practitioners nationwide. To learn more about MELISAÂ® testing, visit www.neuroscienceinc.com/MELISA
