Cesium Chloride Safety Update

Posted on Jan 7, 2014 in Research

A Colorado woman’s death has been linked to cesium chloride supplementation. She had a single injection of cesium chloride into her breast. She developed abnormally high levels of cesium in the blood, followed by an imbalance in electrolytes and an irregular heart rhythm. She had a heart attack and did not survive. Cesium chloride is known to displace potassium, an important regulator of heart rhythm and muscle contraction. There have been multiple cases of severely abnormal heart rhythms reported with oral cesium chloride. 

This unfortunate event highlights the importance of consulting with a naturopathic oncologist regarding the safety of natural therapies. While there are many safe and effective natural therapies, not all natural therapies are safe.
