Several beneficial techniques can lighten the heavy metal load. Consuming plenty of purified water, getting adequate rest and brushing dry skin is crucial for removing toxic metals from the body, so too are bentonite clay baths and infrared saunas. The following have also proven helpful:
Chlorella and spirulina – Binding to mercury, arsenic, cadmium and lead, spirulina and chlorella are an excellent choice for removing heavy metals. Moreover, chlorella not only attracts harmful metals but also encapsulates the toxins, thereby preventing reabsorption in the digestive tract.
Zeolite – With exceptional magnetic attributes, zeolite is one of the best methods for eliminating troublesome metals. At the University of California in Los Angeles, eleven healthy participants were given zeolite for 30 days. At the conclusion of the study, researchers noted a significant reduction in heavy metal concentrations, without any negative effect on vital electrolytes.
Cilantro – Dr. Yoshiaki Omura, director of medical research at the Heart Disease Foundation, discovered that lightly cooked cilantro causes mercury to be flushed from the system via the urine. The herb also chelates aluminum and lead.
Dietrich Kinghardt, MD, PhD, has found through his clinical research that 5 grams (1 teaspoon) of cilantro per day is the minimum dose. For a detoxifying tea, pour 1 liter of boiling water over at least 8 teaspoons of chopped cilantro. Cover and let steep for 20 minutes in a non-reactive container like Pyrex or CorningWare. For effective detoxification, consume the tea for at least two to three months.
Activated Charcoal: Take in capsule form.
Diatomaceous Earth: This can be good for detoxing but is has a harshness to it.
Bentonite Clay: Can ingest or use it in bath water
