Natural detoxification dates back to traditional Chinese medicine, which for thousands of years, emphasized the use of herbal remedies to help rid the body of toxins and restore vitality and health. Similar detoxification techniques were later employed by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans.
In modern day, we are exposed to toxins through a myriad of ways, such as processed food, stress, chemically-laden household products, etc. One of these toxins (one of the most dangerous) is mercury. As mercury level rises in our body, so do the diseases. One might ask: but how does mercury end up accumulating in our system? The answer is easy. There are three primary ways you can contaminate yourself with mercury:
1) Through the air we breathe as the electricity we use is generated through the process of burning coal; and coal contains levels of mercury.
2) Through diet, especially seafood as they contain large doses of heavy metals and mercury
3) Most commonly from the silver fillings in your mouth. The primary ingredient in these silver fillings is (guess what) mercury. Brace yourself for this stat: each silver filling contains about 1,000mg of mercury, the equivalent of one million times the level found in diet. Every time you chew, the mercury contained in your silver fillings is released. By the way, if you have silver fillings in your mouth, you may want to consider the help of a holistic dentist as soon as possible.
This heightened level of mercury is the source of a plethora of illnesses, which manifest themselves (in their early stages) as general fatigue, depression, aching joints, digestive distress, etc. If you feel any of these symptoms (or as a proactive approach), you should take a hint and detoxify your body.
Chlorella is a powerful natural detoxification superfood
If you have high levels of mercury in your body, you can use cilantro or chlorella as a natural detoxification tool. Chlorella is a single cell alga, and a powerful nutritional resource that can help you fight body pollution. Chlorella is especially prevalent in the Japanese culture as they highly value its natural detoxification abilities. Effectively, chlorella attaches to mercury, heavy metals, chemicals and pesticides found in your digestive system, and then is excreted harmlessly from your body through your stool and urine.
But chlorella does more than just bind to harmful toxins. It is uniquely designed to avoid attaching to beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc. In essence, chlorella is smart enough to know which metals belong to your body and which are causing you harm. Using chlorella as a natural detoxification superfood is similar to unleashing a pack of small army in your body to fight the battle of ridding yourself from toxins.
As a beginner, take about 200mg of chlorella with meals (never on an empty stomach as it may cause nausea). Within several days you can work your way up to 500mg per meal.
Natural detoxification is not just aimed at removing mercury from your body. Let’s just make it clear that, even if you don’t have silver fillings in your mouth, you are still exposed to toxic matter, from the food you eat, the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the products you use. Consequently, it is very critical that you detoxify your body frequently, to prevent degenerative diseases from taking root.
