Last week I talked about the evil chemical glyphosate, and how detrimental it can be to our health. We talked about ways to test for it to evaluate our load in the body. Today I’m going to give you two ways to detoxify glyphosate from the body. To recap, glyphosate is the chemical found in the herbicide Round-Up, as well as being in over 700 products ranging from herbicides to household products. It can have many adverse effects on the health of one’s body, and may be a contributor to chronic health concerns including autism-spectrum disorders. [Read more…]
Heavy metals such as mercury, lead, aluminum and cadmium can be very harmful to the body. I see it frequently in my patients. So in my own ongoing habit of checking my metals, adrenals, thyroid etc., I did my own heavy metal labs to make sure my sushi habit wasn’t creeping my mercury up. I was shocked at what I saw. Mercury was a bit high, but my lead level was 19 (it should be less than 2), and my bismuth was 54 (it should be less than 4). Wheweeeee, it’s time to physician heal thyself! I’m designing a protocol for myself, and thought I’d share some ideas about how to detox lead from the body in case any of you are in the same boat!
Heavy metal toxicity is an issue that exists alongside many other health conditions and diagnoses. Many of my autistic-spectrum patients have heavy metal toxicity, many of my Lyme disease patients have heavy metal toxicity, but I would bet that many people without any official diagnosis have high levels of heavy metals in their bodies that may be affecting their neurological function. With the pollution surrounding us today, heavy metals are a part of the environment. Reversing heavy metal toxicity can provide a massive boost in one’s overall health levels.
There are many things that keep our immune systems working hard, ranging from bacteria to viruses to a variety of toxins. Mold is one of these toxins that can be potent and insidious. Some molds are benign, while others are highly toxic and can cause massive health problems. Helping your immune system recover from mold toxicity can be a long and challenging process, but now there is another immune regulator that can help – it’s called Transfer Factor Enviro.
Amalgam fillings (the silver-colored fillings that are used to fill dental cavities) are definitely something that can compromise our health. They are a source of mercury, which can leach into the body for many years after they were put in place. I have seen many people’s health improve when they had their amalgam fillings taken out – headaches, foggy brain, fatigue, insomnia, joint pain, muscle aches and other neurological issues have all improved and even resolved in some of the patients I’ve seen. There are a few things you can do in terms of supporting amalgam filling removal though, to protect the body from escaping toxins, and support its detox capabilities:-
