properly fed and
well cared for,
will work magic to
find wellness for you.
In a healthy person, this storage often goes unnoticed, but once the burden becomes too high, the systems begin to break down and health deteriorates. The resulting signs of illness are the clues that your system is on the brink of danger.
In the simplest of visuals, when your body clears toxins from the bloodstream, it finds a safer place for it. That can be fat cells, organs, your brain and bones.
As the body become cleaner, it will naturally start to alleviate some of that storage. That means toxicity can be mobilize and be dropped back into the bloodstream to be removed as waste. That movement could instigate symptoms. That is why some days you can very sick while other days are far easier when detoxing.
A cleansing protocol can assist that process, as will food. The cleaner your system, the more availability it has for detoxifying and clarifying the body. The more you add toxicity to your day, the less time your body has to clear storage of toxicity.
Foods alone can do the job of detoxing and chelating heavy metals from the body. Foods can be used without other drugs or a formal protocol. Whether you choose a formal protocol or not, these foods offer support to the process.
Generally your food choices should be whole foods, not processed, prepared, manufactured, boxed or altered. Your choices should be free of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and should be GMO-free.
Choose from a variety of colorful foods, herbs and spices. Keep your focus on mineral and nutrient rich foods that will protect organs and replenish the body.
In the case of animal protein, choose grass-fed protein to avoid GMO contamination through animal feed. Also choose protein that is free of antibiotics and hormones. In the case of fish, eat those that have a low potential for mercury contamination and do not eat farmed fish that are fed GMO feed, growth hormone and antibiotics.
Care should be given to support specific areas of the body where metals are likely stored like the liver, kidneys and brain. Eating foods that protect those organs is a good idea.
Foods that Support Detoxification include:
Cilantro, Coriander is known to be a strong mobilizer of metals. It is one of the few chelators that will cross the blood-brain barrier and so, is very important to removing metals. Although cilantro is a tremendous mobilizer it can mobilize more metal than your body can readily excrete. When this happens the excess metal can be reabsorbed and/or cause you to feel ill. You can take it with pectin, chlorella or charcoal to help absorption.
Garlic alone is likely powerful enough to detox the body of metals. Eating 3 and more cloves a day will add high levels of Vitamin C and B6 to the body while it binds to metals and helps the body detox. Cutting or crushing helps to release allicin effectively. Garlic is antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic and is a natural boost to the immune system.
Sulphuric Foods are helpful detoxifiers and include broccoli, cabbages, bok choy, mustard, watercress, asparagus, parsley, garlic, onions, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, chives, collard greens, green beans, kale, sweet potato, spinach, split peas, leeks, tomatoes, peas, shallots, jicama, avocados and turnips.
Dark Green Vegetables help reduce metals in the body.
Omega 3 Foods such as fish, eggs, nuts, flax, chia and leafy vegetables will help reduce pain and regulate hormones that can improve brain fog and depression. High sources of omega 3s are mackerel, salmon, cod liver oil, walnuts, chia seeds, herring, flaxseeds, tuna, white fish, sardines, hemp seeds, anchovies and egg yolks.
Brazil Nuts and Sunflower Seeds are good sources of selenium which is a natural detoxifier of metals. Other sources like dairy, grain, meats and fish can be tainted sources. Brazil nuts have the highest levels of selenium.
Pectin Foods have the ability to bind to metals and help remove them from the body. Apples, peaches, oranges, grapefruit and all citrus contain the highest levels of pectin.
Meats, Eggs & Fish contain amino acid proteins that are important aids in detoxing metals. They serve to aid liver health and enzyme production.
Supplements that Support Detoxification include:
Wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll that is rich in protein, amino acids and minerals. It is known for its healing powers and for purifying the liver.
Chlorella, known as a superfood, is an immune system boost and nutrient rich with vitamins, minerals, protein, magnesium, zinc and iron. In the case of heavy metals it binds to escort the dangerous material from the body. When used with cilantro, which mobilizes metals, it is an effective assistant.
Milk Thistle is a liver detoxifier that will not only purify the liver but help to repair damage from heavy metals. It will fight free radicle damage and is rich is vitamins C and E.
Pectin is found in fruits like apples, blackberries and cranberries or in capsule form. Its properties pull heavy metals and contaminants from the blood. You can also buy it in supplement form.
Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and will reduce the damage caused by metals contamination.
Probiotics are helpful in maintaining gut health. Metals in the body create the perfect environment for candida overgrowth that can eventually lead to Leaky Gut Syndrome and malnutrition. Probiotics feed the bacteria that balances candida overgrowth and can be obtain in capsules or fermented foods. Candida can become resistant to probiotics, so changing them periodically is a good idea. Testing for candida is simple with the instructions at
Food Grade Charcoal has enormous absorption qualities and is very inexpensive. You can dissolve it in water or take by capsule.
