Every day we are exposed to the contamination with heavy metals and toxic chemical substances. The heavy metals that cause the most frequent health problems are mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium (in the cigarette smoke) and iron. Other hazardous metals are aluminum, uranium, antimony, thallium, chromium, tin, selenium, manganese, copper and cobalt.
The number of those who have been intoxicated with heavy metals has increased in the past few decades. These intoxications are the main cause for hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid disorders, neurological disorders, food allergies and depression.
Most of the times, heavy metals get into our organism through alimentation, air, water or they are simply absorbed into the skin. If you have dental work, have been vaccinated or have consumed seafood, your organism is most probably contaminated with such heavy metals.
The detoxification must start on a cell level and for this, you must consume healthy food with natural raw products. By consuming natural fruit and vegetable juices, spirulina, chlorella and exercising as much as possible, the body will naturally eliminate these toxins.
The best foods to help you eliminate the heavy metals are:
Chlorella – a type of seaweed rich in chlorophyll that promotes the bowel movement. Because the mercury is most of the times eliminated through the stool, this seaweed is recommended in the heavy metals’ detoxification.
Coriander – it is also known as Chinese parsley and it helps eliminate the mercury from the muscle tissues.
Garlic – crushed garlic has active ingredients that increase the sulfur level in the organism and the sulfur accelerates the elimination process of the heavy metals.
Detoxification Juice – Recipe
– 1 large beetroot or 2 smaller pieces
– 1 handful of kale
– 2 cm of ginger
– 2 celery sticks (with the leaves)
– 1 medium cucumber
– ½ lime
– 1 handful of fresh parsley
– 1 handful of fresh coriander
– 1 – 2 tablespoons of chia seeds (optional)
Before using them, wash the vegetables and the herbs. Put every one of the ingredients in the juicer or blender. Add a little bit of water to make them more liquid. After that, strain the juice. If you wish to add the chia seeds, you can do it after you have prepared the juice. let them soak for 10 minutes in the juice. The chia seeds contain fibers that are soluble in water. Therefore, they become gelatinous and will be able to absorb the toxins in the digestive tract, helping you eliminate the heavy metals.
