Heavy Metal

Somewhere along my journey, I vaguely remember hearng 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.

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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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

Ingredients

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup almonds, cashews or other nuts
  • 1 cup packed freesh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

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.

Beginners Shopping List

Here is a list of items suggested for those just starting out or not fully SOLD OUT on the idea or those who just want to enjoy GOOD GOD FOOD and healing at the same time.

A good rule of thumb here is to find single ingredient foods with one ingredient in it.

No added ingredients, flavors, colors, preservatives etc. (So peanut butter would just have peanuts as the ONLY ingredient.  This takes a bit of getting used to but as you move along you will find products that you go to every time.

Depending on where you shop and what you buy.  Although I prefer to buy my items local, I do have to admit that I shop Costco for bulk items because I am on a budget too.

End Each Night With a Detox Bath

Our skin is the largest detox organ of our body.  Once I accepted this, I started taking detox baths every night until my skin cleared up nicely.  I simply used a recommended bath I had heard about online and added some essential oils for fragrance.

My mom has used oils for years for massage therapy, but I had just thought they were used for their scent alone.  I just hadn’t grasped the healing properties they hold until this year.

Here’s my nightly detox bath soak

  • 1/4 cup Mule Team Borax
  • 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
  • 5 drops of essential oils (optional)

I followed my bath by drying completely and rubbing vodka and thyme and cloves essential oils on any dry spots, zits, moles, and skin tags then applying a cream I had made with ingredients from Mom’s Stuff Salve on my eczema.  I had tried it before from my mom and loved it so much that I made my own.  My homemade salve was still no match to the real time tested formula, so I ordered my own.

These are some suggestions on detoxing essential oils

More suggestions for detox baths
