The Heavily Metalled Podcast

On this podcast, Shari Guess interviews patients, medical professionals and industry insiders and has important discussions regarding the all-to-commonly experienced, but lesser identified symptoms of hypersensitivity to metals contained in implanted medical and dental hardware.

Metals often cause a variety of dysfunctional immune responses, chronic pain and other syndromes that fly under the radar of most patients and physicians. During the interviews, ideas for managing symptoms and personal lifestyle modifications are shared, as well as discussions about how to advocate with and educate providers pre and post surgery, along with options found for implant removal and the how-to of adverse event reporting. This podcast does not give medical advice.
