Mercury, lead, and aluminum are toxic heavy metals that can easily accumulate in the body over time. Some of them, such as lead, are actually poison. They can cause a lot of harm to a person’s health and may even lead to death.
As I was reading this article, I found out these so-called ‘heavy metals’ are considered to be responsible for certain serious health conditions such as heart disease, dementia, birth defects, autism, infertility, thyroid problems and so many others. The good news is that these heavy metals can be remove from the body to minimize their impact on a person’s health.
There are safe methods of removing the heavy metals from the body and minimize the damage they can cause. Here are some of them:
1. Adapt A Detox Diet
There natural ways to remove heavy metals from the body. One method is to adapt a detox diet. A detox diet may help your body get rid of heavy metals and other harmful toxins as well. Some examples of the types of food included in this diet are grains, fruits, and sulfur-rich food such as broccoli and garlic.
Detox diets and detox recipes have been adapted by many celebrities such as Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow so they’re already well-known by the public. The only caveat about detox diets is that they can lead to drastic weight loss. However, many believe that they may keep the body clean and safe for a long time and may provide physical and mental health benefits.
You should also pair your detox diet with physical exercises or activities such as Pilates and yoga which are both great for detoxifying the body. Furthermore, make sure to take the time to consult with your doctor or nutritionist before going on a detox diet. It’s best to rely on professional medical advice to make sure you’re not inadvertently harming your body more.
2. Add Cilantro To Your Diet
Cilantro, also known as coriander, is an herb that has detoxifying properties. It’s a natural chelating agent that doesn’t need to be administered like a drug. All you need is a small amount of fresh cilantro and turn it into a pesto sauce or eat it over a pasta or a toast every day for a couple of weeks. But you’ll still need to talk to your doctor first before adding cilantro to your diet, especially if you have a health condition or if you’re taking prescribed medications.
For best results, you can combine cilantro with chlorella (a type of green algae). Together they provide the most effective way of detoxifying your body from heavy metals. Aside from being a natural chelating agent, cilantro has potent antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties. Cilantro and chlorella should be taken 3 times a day for at least 3 months.
3. Supplements And Intravenous Nutrients
One important supplement that you may need if you want to get rid of heavy metals inside your body and minimize their impact on your health is Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps promote the production of glutathione, which is essential for detoxifying the body from heavy metals.
Glutathione is a natural antioxidant produced by the body which is effective in protecting the tissues from the damage caused by heavy metals. The accumulation of heavy metals may rapidly diminish the amount of glutathione that the body produces, and when it’s depleted, the cells may sustain damage.
If your body has low levels of glutathione, you can have it administered intravenously or take it as an oral supplement.
4. Chelation Therapy
Chelation therapy is a type of treatment where heavy metals are bonded with oxygen in order to be eliminated from the body. The first thing that would happen is that the metal ions will be exchanged with the ions of air or water. Next, the metal ions will come into contact with the molecules of the target metal. This will result in the elimination of the metal ions.
Although this is considered to be a safe and noninvasive way to remove heavy metals from your body, this method can be expensive. Furthermore, the effectiveness of this treatment has been questioned by some experts in the field. So, it’s a good idea to consult your doctor first if you’re considering chelation therapy.
Industrial and environmental factors may lead to the accumulation of heavy metals in the body. While these metals have negligible effects when they’re present in small amounts, overexposure can result in serious health conditions.
There are, fortunately, effective ways to remove heavy metals from your body such as the ones listed above. Most of them are quite affordable as well, so you don’t have to worry too much about breaking the bank. Just remember to seek professional help before doing these procedures, so you’ll get proper guidance.
