Spring and fall are the best times to cleanse your body.
As the seasons change our bodies naturally want to purge to get ready for the hottest or coldest seasons respectively. So, now is a perfect time to help these natural inclinations along.
How do we properly cleanse our body?
I will be Blogging on a series that will walk you through how to cleanse your body...
...through detoxing heavy metals, to everyday cleansing, to a full on deep cleanse to really help heal your body from health issues.
We will start with cleansing from heavy metals; because we all have them and they can be the base of many health issues we experience.
We are continually exposed to heavy metals from our environment and are even born with high levels of heavy metals that have been passed down to us from generational exposure.
Metals do not leave the system unless they are forcefully cleared out!
Contributors to Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Petroleum products
- Air pollution
- Chemically lined non-stick pans
- Food containers
- Old Thermometers
- Lead based paint
Some of the symptoms we see from heavy metal toxicity are:
- Brain fog
- Memory Loss
- Damage to Neurotransmitters
- Bacterial over growth
- Metal taste in mouth
- and much more...
Heavy metals store themselves in every tissue and system in the body.
Cleansing metals out of our bodies is paramount...
as latent or active viruses in our body like Epstein Barr virus and Strep feed on heavy metals as well as other things (to be discussed later) which cause most of the illnesses in our body today.
5 Heavy Metal Detoxifying Foods that will pick up and clear out heavy metals
- Hawaiian Spirulina ( Clears HM in brain, central nervous system, liver)
- Barley Grass Juice Powder ( Clears HM in Intestinal track, pancreas, spleen, thyroid and reproductive system)
- Cilantro ( Clears deep hard to reach places, mercury of past generational exposure)
- Wild Blueberries ( Most powerful way to get rid of HM in the body and brain, they also repair the tissue where the HM were and replaces with antioxidants, for hard to reach deep places, picks up where others leave off)
- Atlantic Dulse ( If you are afraid of it having HM from the ocean, Dulse will remove more HM than it can ever give you, because it doesn't let go, absorbs like a sponge, for deep generational exposure to HM)
Here are some of our favorite recommendations to clear heavy metals.
- First thing when you wake up, squeeze 1/2-1 lemon in water and drink before anything else. Wait a 1/2 an hour before eating or drinking anything else. OR drink 12-16 oz freshly juiced celery juice, and wait 30 minutes as well
- Have a cup of dandelion or hibiscus tea with breakfast.
- My Favorite!! A heavy metal detox smoothie for breakfast
Other Things that can support your body in clearing Heavy Metals are to reduce or eliminate your intake of:
- Eggs (feeds viruses, fat)
- Dairy- milk, butter, yogurt etc. (another viral feeder, fat)
- Gluten if possible (another viral feeder)
- Lower intake of fat- nuts, seeds, meat, etc- lowering blood fat aids you in releasing the heavy metals
You may feel your body detoxing...
- metal taste
- body aches
But know that it will just last a while and that your body will be healthier after you do it. So don't stop, doing the detox, you have to push through it...
