Most ‘USDA-certified organic foods’ are NOT tested for heavy metal toxins like:
= Simply implies the PROCESS by which food is grown.
Certified Organic foods can contain heavy metal toxins because these toxins are found:
- In the AIR
- In the SOIL
- In the WATER
- once these toxins enter the environment, it is near impossible to remove them.
How Do Heavy Metals Harm Us Anyway?
- Disrupt chemical reactions / Blocks nutrient absorption
- Interfere with immune defense and healing processes
- Carcinogenic (cause cancer!)
- Cause GENETIC changes that get passed on to your CHILDREN.
- Imitate symptoms of other serious issues like: diabetes, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and dementia.
“What’s a ‘Detox’?”
-> Detoxification is a daily process.
-> Every cell has its own detox process.
-> Entire Organs dedicated to detoxification.
CHELATION – removal
- Administration of chelating agents to bind to metals so they can be more easily excreted.
- The above process involves the Metals being pulled out of bones, organs etc. allowing them to get into the blood stream.
- Thus, aggressive detoxification can cause acute toxicity.
- See a Detox Professional if considering using chelating agents
- Consider supporting your body’s natural detoxification processes with food (see below)
FOODS (that naturally chelate heavy metals)
- Seafood (veggies)
- Orange peel
- Other Metals
- Activated Charcoal
+ EXECISE / Sweating!!
“The idea that you have to get worse before you can get better is similar to the iron-pumping slogan no pain no gain” – (Mike Adams, ‘Food Forensics: the hidden toxins luring in your food and how you can avoid them for lifelong health.’2016.)

- Eating some foods together allow immediate elimination
- Seaweed (Dulse is best) and Sushi Tuna ( properties in the seaweed eliminated 60-90% of the mercury as they get digested together!)
- Educate yourself as to which typical ‘Health Foods’ are high in heavy metals
*more info on this subject coming soon*
- General rule – anything made in: China, India or Thailand – will be higher in heavy metal toxins.
SAUNA / SWEAT LODGE!
