Heavy metal toxicity from arsenic, mercury, aluminum, lead and cadmium are unquestionably a major contributor to many chronic diseases. Heavy metal toxicity is the basis for free radical damage to the brain, causing oxidation and destroying the cells.

These heavy metals come from a variety of sources including vaccines, water, teeth fillings and even cookware.  Diseases like Parkinson’s, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s have been directly related to heavy metal toxicity.

Silver teeth fillings are full of mercury that can cause problems with the heart, liver and kidneys. Autism is believed to have a connection to mercury.

Still, with all of this awareness, mercury is still used in dentistry today.  We must become proactive in our own wellness and take a look at many of the causes of our health problems.

A newborn can have as many as 78 traces of pesticides, industrial by-products, and mercury in the blood of its umbilical cord. So it stands to reason that after many years of living on the planet, having teeth filled with amalgams which contain mercury, breathing exhaust fumes and inhaling tire particles from millions of cars people are more toxic than ever.

Tons of processed, dead food and polluting agents are suffocating the body and preventing it from reaching optimal health.

There may be little you can do about our toxic world, but there is plenty you can do to regularly and effectively detoxify your body so you can function better in it.

First, find out what heavy metals and toxins you have in your body. One very easy and effective way to do this is with an inexpensive Healthscope Scan. If you have silver amalgam fillings, have them removed safely by a qualified dentist.

Use “super foods” and herbs to cleanse the mercury and other heavy metals that are stored in the tissues. Broken cell wall chlorella and liquid cilantro extract work as powerful cleansers to remove heavy metals including mercury from the blood, tissues and cells.

Eating kale and other dark green leafy vegetables can help in the cleansing and when you add celery and cucumbers, which are high in minerals, you are nourishing the body so it can rebuild itself and heal.

Drink at least one ounce of alkaline water for each two pounds you weigh every day. This is critical to good health and helps cleanse the body of toxic substances.

Most people are very acidic which contributes to poor health and drinking alkaline water and eating organic raw green vegetables, juices and blended smoothies can help bring back alkalinity quickly.

Our planet’s supply of oxygen has been greatly diminished from cutting down the rainforest and millions of oxygen producing trees so add some liquid oxygen to your water and juices to help create good health and give you more energy.

These are all beneficial things that are easy and you can do them everyday to help your body detoxify, cleanse, rebuild and heal.

2 cups kale

2 cups celery
