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.

Toxins and our kids

One Day at a Time

We live in a culture that seeks immediate results.  We want things NOW.  We want things easy.

Well nothing is that simple.  When it comes to healing and lasting results we must take it One Day at a Time and recognize our complete need for divine intervention.

I want to simplify it for you and share some history of how I got to where I am.

I had heard about detoxing and cleansing when I worked for Dr Christopher’s herb shop connection back in college over 10 years ago.  But like so many I had never considered my need for health, I was young and healthy.

That was then.

Rewind back 9 months ago…

I knew I was not feeling well, tired all the time, and I struggled to get out of bed.  It seemed like a mild depression or lack of motivation.  Maybe I was just getting older.

I had settled for this as normal.  I couldn’t figure out why I had no energy, after all I ate a variety of good food and drank only water.

My kidneys were hurting almost constantly, reminding me of the nickel sized kidneys stone that had put me in the hospital for three days in August of 2012 and my skin eczema had reached an all time unbearable, itchy, and blistering state that kept me up most nights.  Escpecially the week leading up the the full moon.

I soon started experimenting with removing added sugar from my diet and discovered that my eczema and my kidneys were fueled by added sugars.

I knew I had stumbled on something incredibly effective and dove right in.  My body was overloaded in many areas and I was desperate for lasting result.

Here is my reason’s for detoxing.

  • I knew my body must be overloaded
  • I heard about the benefits of detoxing
  • My organs were beginning to hurt for no apparent reason
  • I was tired of feeling like crap
  • The improvements I had after stopping my sugar intake and beginning my Organic Juice Cleanse greens after one week were evident

About this same time, I had been talking with my friend in South Africa and gaining a lot of good remedies and I had checked out the book 30 Day Faith Detox By Laura Harris from the library.  This all fell into place at the right time.  I began noticing changes to my eczema and even surprised by the disappearance of the corn on my foot that I had been quite used to as the new normal.  I started using the methods in the 30 Day Faith Detox By Laura Harris which included Detoxing the Liver gently, Colon and Eating Clean.

Eczema is Clearing

The basics to my healing break through.

AFTER

My eczema started clearing up after I was able to go without sugar and started drinking my greens from Purity Products Organic Juice Cleanse. It would flair back up when I snuck any sugar and that dang maddening itch began.  I would notice a pattern as I was out standing outside observing the full moon.  So I began to pay attention and realized that quite a bit of restlessness, swelling and itching occurred each month abouth 5 days prior and up to the full moon.  I tried many things that helped, like changing my diet, morning detox drink, and some that didnt.  While diets is key, the easiest most simple methods are my Nightly Detox Baths followed by soaking my hand in vodka and essential oils and alternating with my thyme discovery.  I used these things nightly until my hand cleared and anytime I could feel a flair up followed by applying Mom’s Stuff Salve.  With patience and vigor over the past 8 months I have been clear of painful blistering for two months now.  What are you waiting for?  Get started today or step it up.

None of this would be possible without the strength and wisdom provided me by God.  May He get all the glory for healing me and providing all that’s necessary from this day on.  All His amazing food and the Spirit to guide me.

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

God showed up in Thyme

During my journey for health I had asked my husband, who is a lead technician for a 24 hour restoration company that deals with mold, to bring me home something that I could use for the surface mold in my basement shower.  He had always bragged about the amazing, safe and natural products he used for work and I had to test it myself.

It took him a few months to finally bring me home the CHEMICAL.  I was so excited to read the ingredients.  Thymol (a component of thyme oil) and lemon.  I had to laugh.  Here, this powerful non toxic product was used by the professionals to treat child care centers, hospitals and molds and fungus.  It is a virucidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, tuberculocidal and even kills HIV on precleaned surfaces.  It is safe to use on food surfaces and no hazard or FDA approval on the bottle.  I used it for the mold and got some on my hands, on my eczema and it tingled and burned like mad.  A bad thing right?

I was wrong.  My eczema turned a page and began to clear up.  I was so excited. Natural, safe and effective at treating my eczema and mold.  I discovered a wonder product by accident.  Actually, God gave me this amazing dicovery because He loves us all and I had been asking for answers and healing.  I was desperate and open to whatever He would show me.

BUT WAIT… If this product “kills” eczema, than there must be a cure for it completely.  After all, this product KILLS HIV and 99.99% of germs

Must be pretty powerful stuff.  Right?  Please dilute your Thyme oil.  Only a little is needed.  After all 0.23 % of this gallon bottle was thymol.  The rest was water and scent…

I use Young Living essential oils to clean my house and bath in as well as for healing.

You can use any oils, herbs, or whatever you would like.  Just be cautious of your source.

Today’s Challenge

Swap Sugar

Take the time today to treat yourself.  However, instead of sugar, swap out one of your regular choices with honey, molasses, stevia, agave or a fruit.  Be cautious here as these are still sugars and less is needed for sweetness.  Here is how sugar is ranked.

Maybe this means taking something you enjoy and giving it a makeover and substituting ingredients.  It is important to use less of the alternative sugar.

IDEAS:

  • Try replacing your morning coffee and sugar with honey, agave, stevia, raw coconut sugar.
  • Try Lemon and molasses water instead of your soda.
  • Whip up a batch of Healing Fudge instead of a candy bar.
  • Plan ahead and make Homemade Granola
  • Choose a sugarless smoothie instead of ice cream
  • Use healthy alternatives for sugar sparingly as they are more concentrated sugars.

 

NOT ALL SUGAR FREE IS SAFE

Be careful not to fall into looking for sugar-free as an alternative. There are many unsafe alternatives that are as bad or worse than added sugar.

Use less sugar alternatives as they are even considered questionable by some. https://authoritynutrition.com/6-healthy-sugars-that-can-kill-you/
