Heavy Metal

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

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 fresh 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.

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.

Translate Symptoms into Healing-Step by Step of my journey- Updated 12/13/18

START YOUR OWN JOURNEY BY FINDING OUT WHAT YOUR BODY IS STRUGGLING IN… I HAVE NOW INCLUDED EASY TO FOLLOW LINKS FOR ALL THE PRODUCTS THAT I USED IN MY JOURNEY.

TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO FILL OUT MY HEALTH EVALUATION

Prevent and heal from disease by tackling what many believe to be the starting point in the body.  The BOWELS.  Its all in the gut.  If you have ever taken a round of antibiotics, been vaccinated, ate Genetically Modified Foods (GMO-corn, soy and more), ate wheat products (high rate of spray with glyphosate-Monsanto’s Roundup), walked barefoot, traveled into other countries, or drink Tap water then you may have trouble in your gut, a compromised immune system, or organs that are working hard to keep you going day to day.  You may feel tired, overwhelmed, overweight, sick often, or feel like you just cannot maintain your stamina.  You may not struggle all the time but seasonal allergies, food allergies, have pain or inflammation, or like me, dry, cracked and bleeding skin and eczema.

What is your symptoms?

I began my journey by eliminating the kidney triggers, since I had kidneys stones and do not ever wish to have them again, such as refined added sugars, reading The 30 Day Faith Detox, (a great start for those who would like a daily devotional, systematically detoxing one organ at a time along with meal planning and recipes) drinking a good greens product and drinking MORE and purified water and eating clean and avoiding environmental toxins and using toxic free hygiene products and household products

As part of the 30 day faith detox, I needed to begin in the gut.  I began to address my lower bowels and take some high quality enzymes and a good probiotic to replenish my gut flora.  My friend suggested bone broth so I made me a batch of this.  I was reminded of the amazing testimonials I had heard from customers while working for Dr Christopher’s Herb in college.  We sold a formula specific to cleaning the bowels and I definitely needed and extra boost and decided to use the ingredients in Dr Christopher’s Lower Bowel Formula. and put together my own tea with herbs I found locally from World Of Nutrition, Nampa’s bulk herb section for half the price.  If making your own formula isn’t for you, here is a great option as well for your colon health.  The Supplement Facts are listed below.  Dr Mario Brus in Nampa Idaho suggests a product called RESTORE PROFESSIONAL, Restore-the gut tight junction closer and S. Boulardii by Jarrow to supplement nutrients needed and improve the gut health as well as doing a bone broth.  Some start gently with chicken broth to begin to heal the gut and restore the microbiome.  There is also a product Biomedic, get $50 off with coupon code BETRUE, that helps block the glyphosate (Roundup sprayed on almost ALL NON ORGANIC wheat and other produce before harvesting) and restore the gut biome.  Please contact me for more info on these as I do not yet have the info.

I made a lot of my own remedies based on these ingredients, I also made bone broth and ate a high fat, veggie and juice diet for the beginning phase of my journey.

I always use caution and research the ingredients for myself, I started on a low dose and ultimately decided what to use and how much by the way I felt inspired to do.

I had to start to interpret my symptoms and translate them into simple ways to start towards my journey to health.  Along the way, I would run into something that would trigger a reaction, some would call allergy, but I began to recognize some of these reactions as part of the HEALING PROCESS as skin is a detox organ and my body was trying to eliminate SOMETHING…  (I would encourage you to look deeper at these reactions, as they may hold a key to eliminating a deeper issue, as we are so keen to avoid THESE ALLERGENS, when in fact, they may be an answer to our problems)

About this same time I was given an answer from God.

I found that the best way to see results is to document symptoms and what steps I took.  You may want to start a journal to take clear notes to know what works for you.  Remember that we are all uniquely created by God and we all have been exposed to different environmental factors as well as unique diets and lifestyles that brought us to TODAY..

Take a few minutes to see what your body needs by answering some basic questions and take control of your health.

Don’t feed the worms.

capture_2016-12-01-10-29-09

After taking on what seems to be the impossible, detoxing myself from sugar, I was faced with the echoing dilemma, “How do I take sugar from my kids?” and “Will life ever be the same?”  

The answers are quite complex but not unreachable.

It came to me after talking about it with my four year old.

NOTE: My kids love playing in the compost pile and seeing who can find the biggest worms.

I was talking to the kids about parasites, the germs and invaders of the body, and about how sugars feed them and out of my mouth came the question, 

“Do you want to feed your worms?”

This pretty much took care of the problem.  Of course he didn’t want them in his tummy.

I haven’t had much of a struggle with the kids since.  Praise God for simple things.  Kids are so amazing and if we take the time to teach them truth at a level they understand, they grasp it quickly and completely.

I wish it was that easy for the teenager and husband to grasp.  But the echo of this question works for the young ones for now.

. . .

Funny thing is, when my four year old now wants a sucker from the bank line he turns to mommy in public and says loud and serious,

“I WANNA FEED MY WORMS!”

One Day at a Time

Originally written 11/29/2016 – Updated 12/13/2018

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.

In the early 2000’s, I had heard about detoxing and cleansing when I worked for Dr Christopher’s herb shop connection back in college over.  But like so many, I had never considered my need for changing anything or pursuing it for my health, I was young and healthy.

That was then.

Fast forward to Early 2016

I knew I was not feeling well, I was 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.

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

I started experimenting with removing added sugar from my diet and discovered that my eczema and my kidneys were fueled by added sugars.  Eating a clean diet and slowly introducing green drinks, Probiotics and Digestive enzymes as well as Chicken Broth and bone broth to my diet.  I also had checked out a book from the library The 30 Day Faith Detox by Laura Harris.  In this book, I found helful tips on easy detoxes from one organ to the next, recipes and shopping recommendations, as if this wasnt enough great stuff, she wraps it all up with a great daily devotional and spiritual and relational detox tips.  (I only made it to day 10—Here is why ~ I am looking forward to completing the 30 day journey as soon as I stop breatfeading my 5th child)

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 reasons 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 I could not function
  • The improvements I had after stopping my added sugar intake by using alternatives to my favorite sweets, chocolate, and beginning my green drinks after one week were evidence of HOPE.

About this same time, I had been talking with my friend in South Africa and gaining a lot of good Ayurvedic 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.  After eliminating added sugar from my diet, 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 The 30 Day Faith Detox which included Detoxing the Liver gently, Colon and Eating Clean.
