Heavy metals really do take their toll on the body once they get into the bloodstream through environmental toxins, everyday contaminants such as pollutants from tattoos, vaccinations, unpurified or contaminated water, farmed fish,arsenic used in farmed basmati rice and other domestic agriculture ! dental /amalgam fillings, silicone (breast) implants household products, Car exhaust, secondhand smoke, flame retardants, plastic packaging, heavy metals, pesticides, exogenous hormones in conventional meat and dairy, BPA-coated receipts…the list goes on … and from our so called natural environment! Heavy metals can have a detrimental impact on wellbeing and metals such as mercury, nickel, uranium, cadmium, lead and aluminum, discretely imbed themselves into our central nervous system and bone health.
The Accumulative impact is there for for years and impact our long term wellbeing by e.g. slowing us down mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
A lot of these can also be key in triggering dangerous conditions like heart disease, thyroid problems, dementia, neurological conditions, Alzheimer’s, depression, anemia, autism, infertility and birth defects.
Heavy metal detoxification can be used effectively to remove these toxins from your body and minimize their impact on your health. Cilantro (Coriander) – ‘Thania ‘ is an everyday herb we can use to help.
Buckwheat is also effective but I am noting the key qualities of Cilantro here today.
Chelation is the easiest way to remove many of these toxins safely from the body using Chelation therapy which is a natural therapeutic way and involves chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body. This method binds to heavy metal toxin ions by allowing them to be dissolved safely then is excreted in the urine and then get removed this way.
Coriander : Cilantro is a natural detoxifying agent and binds to the metal for excretion
Cilantro is used with chlorella, (Sea algae) and their synchronicity allows for the bodies natural detoxification using chelation. The leaves of the cilantro/Coriander plant is a potent anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antifungal, antimicrobial agent and shows its significance in the chelating properties if offers. These bind to the heavy metals in the body and are removed by the body through the excretory system i.e urine!.
To be effective they need to be eaten together 3 times a day for up to 3 months and there have been many studies on heavy metal chelation using cilantro and chlorella that showed on average that 87% of lead, 91% of mercury, and 74% aluminum was removed from the body within 45 days!!
Titanium Clay and activated charcoal have a place too in supporting a natural detox and ridding our body of the mould that causes fungi in the system. The way in which I work is specific to an individuals case and depends on the person environmental story. Environmental :Electro Magenetic Field detox ! is also an area I work with as this constantly challenges our CNS bodies defense. Get in touch if this is hitting a note for you and see what changes you can make to give you body time to recover from these pollutants.
