I always thought of the North Pole as the most pristine place on Earth. But not anymore.
It’s totally uninhabited by humans. Yet researchers are now finding toxins from the modern world there.1
This is another manifestation of a basic problem we all face...
The world we were designed to live in over millions of years has recently changed.
Toxins now enter our bodies through the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and even through our skin, no matter where we live or how carful we are.
And our bodies haven't adapted quickly enough to flush out the countless man-made chemicals, toxins, and pollutants that are now present in our everyday lives.
But getting rid of these toxins will help you live a longer, disease-free life. You can reduce or eliminate numerous problems such as chronic pain, digestive troubles, depression, and even poor eyesight. Detoxifying your body can boost your immune system, clear your mind, balance your hormones, and much more.
The good news is there are steps you can take to cleanse your body.
With my patients, I begin with reducing heavy metals. Arsenic and lead are among the most common forms of heavy metal toxicity.2 These poisons are used to manufacture things you wouldn't commonly think of as having metals in them. Products like pesticides, glass, wood preservatives, fertilizers, paint, batteries, plumbing, and ink. Not to mention hobby paints, hair coloring, and cosmetics.
In some cases, doctors will use a synthetic solution or chemical called ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) through injection. But this can sometimes cause side effects, including headache, rash, and high blood pressure. And in some cases, it can remove vital minerals from your body along with the toxins.3
There are some safer, more natural methods that I recommend for removing toxic metals from your body.
1) You can take chlorella, a form of dried algae. You can find it in most health-food stores. Take one 500 mg capsule per day initially. Some people are sensitive to chlorella. If you start experiencing nausea or burping, it means your body can't tolerate it, and you should go for another option.
If you don't have a sensitivity, work up slowly over one to two weeks to a dose of one teaspoon (10 tablets or capsules) per day until your levels come down.
2) Fresh cilantro has also been shown to remove mercury from the body. About a teaspoon a day should work.
3) Garlic is also good. Three cloves of fresh garlic per day should help.
4) There's another powerful tool you can use to flush dangerous toxins from your body. It's called modified citrus pectin, and it's made from the inner peel of citrus fruits. Modified citrus pectin is one of the most effective detoxifiers I've found, and it's been proven to work in human clinical studies.
Even though modified citrus pectin is strong enough to soak up toxins and heavy metals like a sponge, it's also gentle on your system. Not a single person in these human trials reported any side effects.
Modified citrus pectin is so safe it has been tested on children as young as 5 years old who suffer from lead poisoning. Every child tested had a dramatic increase in the excretion of lead in their urine - over 130% on average.5
Now before you run out and buy citrus pectin, you have to make sure you're getting the right kind. There are a lot of people out there selling citrus pectin, but it's not the same kind that was used in the clinical studies.
The good news is, a colleague of my friend Dr. Nan Fuchs found a way to modify citrus pectin that makes it very easy for your body to digest. The result is a patented form of modified citrus pectin called PectaSol. It easily binds to toxins, so they can be eliminated by your body's digestive system.
I recommend you read the following report now. You’ll learn everything you need to know about this powerful detoxifier.
