Somewhere along my journey, I vaguely remember hearing about mercury toxicity, I assumed I had addressed it with my strict diet and lifestyle changes.
I have since traced back my kidney and skin issues from around the same time I had swine flu and the tamaflu shot while pregnant in Montana 2009 and having dental work completed through a student dental program for pregnant moms in 2011.
Up to this point, it has been an oversight, I had not quite acknowledged the fact that I had put two and two together.
I have watched the Vaxxed documentary on the autism link to MMR vaccine, however, the fact that my four year old son has early signs of autism and has never received ANY vaccinations has me questioning his HEAVY METAL toxicity levels. (He did have antibiotics at birth, was in NICU for a few days, on oxygen as a result of antibiotic reactions, then hospitalized at 1 yr for gastroentinitus, given over 60 different IV medication. (update: Now in 2018 following a binge of bad diet, he has shown further regression in his cognitive behavior, although he is still very smart.)
My kidney issues, his autistic traits. There has to be a link.
My friend made this connection today and has confirmed my oversighted thoughts and now I’m paying attention…
Here are simple ways you can eat to help detox from heavy metals.
Cilantro Chelation Pesto
This wonderful recipe is by Colorado nutritionist Lynn Mayer, CNC
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/3 cup of Brazil nuts (selenium)
- 1/3 cup Sunflower seeds (Zinc, Magnesium)
- 2 cups packed with fresh cilantro (Vitamin A) – Also known as Coriander, Chinese Parsley
- 2/3 cup flaxseed oil
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice (Vitamin C)
- 2 tablespoons dulse powder
- Sea salt to taste
Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender until the coriander is chopped. Add the garlic, nuts and seeds, dulse and lemon juice and mix until the mixture is finely blended into a paste. Add a pinch of sea salt to taste, and blend again. Store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last through the year. Cilantro has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser. Two teaspoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies.
Simple Cilantro Pesto
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 cup almonds, cashews or other nuts
- 1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
Put the cilantro and olive oil in blender and process until the cilantro is chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and process to a lumpy paste (you may need to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the blender). You can change the consistency by altering the amount of olive oil and lemon juice, but keep the 3:1 ratio of oil to juice. (It freezes well, so you can make several batches at once.

Toxins and our kids
Here is another Metal Detox recipe that I constructed out of common ingredients. (Started again 12/14/2018)
- 3 TBSP Bentonite Clay
- 1 bunch Cilantro
- 1 full bulb of Garlic
- 1 tsp Activated charcoal
- 3 TBSP Chlorella
- 4 TBSP Irish moss
- 1 to 2 C filtered water
- 1/2 C Selenium
I blended up the water, cilantro and garlic. Then added chlorella, irish moss and charcoal, then added bentonite clay and more water and selenium this smooth. Selenium will gel up and so once it is added it will thicken up real quick. I spooned out into ice trays to freeze for easy daily or 2 times daily use. I would start out by ensuring that I was using the bathroom regularly and my colon is working well, VERY IMPORTANT, then I would be sure to be drinking plenty of water and on a good detox diet. I would tackle this slowly and steadily for at least a week. This is the very last but probably one of the most important parts of detoxing.
