Nickel found in blood test

My son had a blood test and it was found that he had high levels of nickel in his blood and advised to see a physician, which he did, but the doctor did not know how to treat him. What do we do now as I have done some research and if left untreated could cause problems later. Can you advise?

Thanks

Hi Jan
How old is he? Why did they test for Nickle in his blood? Does he have occupational exposure to nickle (motorcar manufacturing) or does he take any supplements on a regular basis that contains nickle?

Jan,
Where is the nickel from?


Overexposure to nickel is most commonly caused by the frequent use of cell phones and PDAs, or wearing a piece of jewelry containing nickel for a long period of time. If water is not filtered properly, it can still contain small traces of nickel, even when it is determined safe for consumption.

Jan, I found " how to detox from nickel" 

Things You''ll Need:
4 cloves garlic
1/3 cup Brazil nuts
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
2 cups packed fresh cilantro
2/3 cup flaxseed oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tsp. Dulse powder
Liquid aminos


1.Mix the cilantro and flaxseed oil together in a blender until the cilantro is fully chopped. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until it forms a paste-like spread.

2 Store the paste in dark glass jars to prevent sun exposure, which will cause the ingredients to lose nutrients and go bad more quickly.

3 Spread the pesto mixture on bread, toast, potatoes or even pasta. Not only is it good for you, but it tastes great as well, and can add flavor to almost any meal. Only 2 teaspoons a day is enough to release heavy metals from the body through urination.

4 Continue eating 2 teaspoons of this mixture for a month to actually see and feel the benefits for your body. Whether you are doing this to detox from nickel and other heavy metals, or just to keep your body in good health, it is an excellent mixture that is full of vitamins and very easy to make.
