Reality TV star Christina Hall, 39, said Thursday she is suffering from mercury and lead poisoning – and fears her home remodeling job has made her sick.
The Flip or Flop star revealed her health on her Instagram story on Thursday. She told her followers that she had been sick for the past week, and she feared that her illness was caused by her breasts.
Diagnostic scans found the true publisher. Ms Hall fears her housing reform is at stake, saying: ‘[the problems] mostly from the bad houses I’ve been in and I’ve got bad gut bacteria.’
Lead poisoning occurs over time and is the result of constant exposure to the dangerous chemical. While its use in homes and buildings is well regulated in the US, many older homes still contain lead paint, pipes and other materials.
Problem: Christina Hall announced on Insta News on Thursday that she is suffering from lead and mercury poisoning.
Ms Hall shot to fame in 2014, starring alongside ex-husband Tarek El Moussa on their HGTV show.
Before their Hollywood days, the couple ran a real estate agency in Orange County, California, where they flipped houses.
After ten years of housebreaking, and working on dirty construction sites, Ms Hall fears her work may be contributing to her current illness.
Lead build-up in the body can occur over the years. While individual exposures to chemicals pose little risk, repeated exposures over long periods of time can cause problems.
Paint and plumbing used in older homes often contain lead, as the risks of exposure to the chemical were unknown decades ago. Industrial dust can also be a source.
Other contributing factors include contaminated water, soil or air.
Symptoms in adults include high blood pressure, muscle and stomach pain, memory problems and headaches.
Lead exposure is especially dangerous for children because it can seriously affect the development of their brain, nervous system and other vital organs.
Chelation therapy is used to treat lead exposure. The procedure injects an acidic mixture into the person’s blood that binds to metals such as lead and is then excreted in the urine.
Procedure: Christina was concerned about “unexplained health issues” that she thought might be related to breast implants, so she examined them through quantum biofeedback.
Looking ahead: Laying out his plan of action, he explained: ‘So we are starting to remove all this through drugs and IVs and see how I feel and adjust the implants’
Making it happen: The 39-year-old star said his recent health issues were ‘Most likely’ caused by his ‘serious’ property maintenance work.
Side by side: She shot to fame on the home renovation show Flip Or Flop alongside her first husband Tarek El Moussa, with whom she continued to work after the divorce.
Details: Last week she shared that she had been living with ‘unexplained health issues for years, and now I’m considering the idea that this might be related to breast feeding’.

Recently she also revealed that a few months ago, she had such bad reactions to fillers that they had to be removed.
‘In April I had a response to the under eye filler,’ she wrote above a selfie showing the problem. ‘The swelling was severe and would not go down over time.’
With shocked emojis, she captioned it to her more than a million and a half followers: ‘I know. A terrible picture.’
Christina then took a selfie of her cheeks looking red but soft after she successfully had the fillers removed.
Notes: Christina recently also revealed that a few months ago, she had such a bad reaction to the fillers that they had to be removed.
“After dissolving with hyaluronidase and ultrasound frequency treatment to remove all fillers,” he wrote. ‘It won’t happen again.’
April was a special month for Christina, as it turned out that she had married her third husband Joshua Hall, a salesman.
Christina is a mother of three, supporting her two eldest children Taylor, 12, and Brayden, seven, with their father Tarek El Moussa.
She also has a three-year-old son named Hudson with her second husband, British TV presenter Ant Anstead, who is currently dating Renee Zellweger.
‘Don’t die again’: Christina posted a selfie of her cheeks looking flushed but flushed after she successfully had fillers removed.
Ant and Christina tied the knot three days before Christmas 2018 at their Newport Beach home – but split less than two years later.
They announced their separation in September 2020 after Hudson’s first birth and then battled for custody of their youngest child.
Earlier this year Ant filed for emergency custody to get full custody of Hudson, while allowing Christina to spend one weekend with him.
She accused him in court documents of being an insecure mother who only spent ‘nine full days every month’ on average with Hudson and regularly exposed him on social media while caring for him, TMZ reported.
Dashing: April was Christina’s month, as it emerged she had married her third husband Joshua Hall, a salesman.
‘What Ant is doing really hurts me,’ Christina repeated in Us Weekly. ‘If this was true about Hudson, as he says, this should have been dealt with privately by a private judge or mediation, as my lawyer and I suggested.’
A judge rejected Ant’s emergency order, saying he had given ‘insufficient evidence’ of evidence that the arrangement needed to be changed urgently.
However, the child custody case continued and was due to go to trial next March until Ant and Christina reached a settlement this month.
The proposed lawsuit was dismissed and both parents ‘will continue to have legal protection and cooperation,’ according to court documents obtained by People.
What they were: They recently settled a custody battle with second husband Ant Anstead over their three-year-old son Hudson; the former couple was pictured in May 2019
