Detoxing Heavy Metals
Throughout my health journey I have always been open to new ideas and progressive ways to promote healing from the inside out. Many moons along the way I found a practitioner that helped me go through a series of detoxes that ultimately enabled me to live my life medication free. One milestone was when I began to support the metabolic pathways of metal detox. Heavy metals can create imbalances in the body and be at the root cause of the bodies inability to get healthy.
Foods that detox metals
Burdock, milk thistle and dandelion teas are all powerful liver cleansers. That’s a big deal any time, because your liver is the primary filter for eliminating toxins from your body. It’s even more important when you’re on the Fast Metabolism Diet, because your liver is working overtime to help metabolize fat.
Eat more citrus. Pectins in citrus are a very powerful detoxifying substance. Citrus naturally remove heavy metals without depleting the body of important trace minerals.
Add turmeric to your recipes. This root is full of Curcumin. It’s a great detoxing agent and is used to treat liver and digestive disorders.
Natural ways to detox heavy metals
Drink spring water. Drink half your body weight in ounces of spring water every day. (If you weigh 150 pounds, that’s 75 ounces of water every day.) Remember, water doesn’t just keep you hydrated. It shuttles nutrients to your cells, washes waste out of your body, and clears away the byproducts of metabolized fat. If you don’t have enough water in your system, your body will let you know by not only making you feel thirsty, but slamming the brakes on your metabolism until you’re properly hydrated again. It’s just trying to protect itself — when water is truly in short supply, survival takes precedence over burning fat. But we don’t want that to happen!
