By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/23/2022
Christina Hall has updated fans on her health crisis after recently revealing she'd been feeling "super exhausted" with "unexplained" health issues for years.
The Christina in the Country star, 39, took to Instagram Stories on Thursday to share how she was undergoing testing at WAM, an alternative wellness and medicine facility in Newport Beach, CA.
The former Flip or Flop star uploaded a picture of a quantum biofeedback therapy machine and wrote, "The device reveals anything that is negatively affecting health by finding energetic imbalances in the body by responding to the body's electric reactivity patterns."
Christina posted her results a couple of hours later.
"My scan said I have mercury and lead poisoning," Christina disclosed via Instagram Stories.
"Most likely from all the gross houses I've been in (the bad flips) and I have small intestine bacteria overgrowth."
As for her treatment, Christina noted she'll be trying "detoxing" first "through herbs and IVs."
"And then [I'll] see how I feel and tackle implants," Christina said of her backup plan, which would be looking into whether her breast implants have had negative affects on her body.
Christina's testing came only days after she complained about being "super exhausted lately" via Instagram Stories on Sunday, according toUs Weekly.
"I've had some unexplained health stuff for years and now I'm considering the thought that this could be Breast implant related," Christina wrote at the time.
"Does anyone else have any experience with this subject? I'm curious on all the ladies take on this."
Christina went on to describe her recent symptoms, revealing that she's had "inflammation, autoimmune issues (Hashimoto's disease, PCOS, Raynaud's syndrome), unexplained skin rashes, joint and muscle pain, dry eyes, GI issues, SIBO, acid reflux, brain fog, hormone imbalances, swollen lymph nodes and adrenal fatigue."
In attempt to feel better, Christina said she already removed some of her cosmetic face fillers.

"I had all my under eye filler dissolved as it was causing an inflammatory reaction as well," the interior designer explained. "For now just working on detoxing and positive mind set."
Christina has been looking for answers about her health struggles for a while now. She explained in October 2021 how doctors were repeatedly writing off her problems as "stress."
"Doctors have tried to put me on all the pills/meds but luckily I realized masking it wasn't the answer," Christina reportedly wrote via Instagram when she was facing "extreme stomach pain," which began in 2016.
"I wanted to fix the problem so I really focused on my nutrition and it seemed to get better but then last year it was triggered again and all of a sudden the stomach pain was back."
She added at the time, "I've talked to a lot of people about this and just want to advocate how important it is to trust your own health instincts and not ignore things going on in your body."
The former Christina On the Coast star quietly married Joshua Hall after the pair got engaged in September 2021.
Based on a copy of Christina's real estate license obtained by TMZ in April, Christina changed her name from Christina Meursinge Haack to Christina Meursinge El Moussa and finally to Christina Meursinge Hall. (There was no mention of her most recent husband, Ant Anstead).
Now going by Christina Hall, Christina shares daughter Taylor, 12, and son Brayden, 7, with her ex-husband and former Flip or Flop co-star Tarek El Moussa, whom she wed in 2009 and split from in December 2016 after six years of marriage. Christina also has a son Hudson, 3, with her latest ex-husband Ant.
In a July 2021 Instagram post, Christina defended her romance with Joshua after two failed marriages to Tarek and Ant.
Christina and Ant split in September 2020 after nearly two years of marriage, and they finalized their divorce in June 2021.
"When we met [in Spring 2021], the synchronicities hit us so hard and fast they were impossible to ignore. I felt immediately crazy protective over him and wanted to keep him for myself and get to know each other before the tornado (media attention) hit," Christina wrote of Joshua one month after her divorce from Ant was finalized.
"We've had a few solid months of just us getting to know each other and I've loved every second of it. So called 'fame' provides so many things but it comes with a cost. They build you up then tear you down."
Christina explained at the time that she and Joshua were ignoring "the nonsense online" and living their lives free of "other peoples judgements or opinions."
"We pride ourselves on never judging others and always wanting others to be happy and we wish others would have the same respect," Christina continued.
"So yes 'another relationship' and guess what. I'm 38 -- I'll do what I want," she concluded.
Meanwhile, Tarek tied the knot with Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young in October 2021.
Christina and Tarek announced in March 2021 their longtime series together, Flip or Flop, would be coming to an end in March 2022 after 10 seasons and about 12 years on HGTV.
