One of the biggest threats to a long healthy life is toxic heavy metals. Not only do heavy metals promote auto-immune diseases and neurological disorders, they are now being linked to many forms of cancer. We are heavily burdened with heavy metal environmental toxins, and even in our mouths from dental amalgam fillings. The good news is you can protect and detoxify yourself if you’re diligent.
Heavy metals “officially” recognized as carcinogenic
Several heavy metals that create havoc in the human body have been identified. These are the worst:
Cadmium is a highly toxic compound that is a component of tobacco smoke. It is the primary link between smoking and lung cancer. Cadmium from cigarette smoke is doubly dangerous because inhaling toxins is the most efficient means of poisoning the entire body. Obviously, smokers and those subjected to cigarette smoke are under constant assault from cadmium.
Recognized as a carcinogenic element of commercial antiperspirants and under arm deodorants, aluminum can also be inhaled. Aerosol spraying of heavy metals from high flying aircraft threatens everyone. Those trails that many consider benign contrails are actually chemtrails loaded with aluminum and barium.
Chemtrail residue has been analyzed in several locations throughout the world, and aluminum particulates are in every analysis. As the particulate clouds from these chemtrails settle, they become part of what we breathe into our lungs, the most efficient gateway for heavy metal toxicity.
Beryllium, nickel, radium, and arsenic round out the heavy metals officially recognized as carcinogenic. Arsenic is often found in some well waters. The others threaten individuals within specific industries using those metals. None of these heavy metals are as prevalent or pose the carcinogenic threat to the general population as much as cadmium, aluminum, and mercury.
Mercury, the heavy metal most dangerous for human health, has been “officially” recognized as “possibly carcinogenic”. However, various lab animal studies and epidemiological human surveys indicate that it should definitely be considered carcinogenic.
Internationally known medical researcher, Yoshiaki Omura, MD, has observed that all cancer cells have mercury in them. He believes mercury toxicity is the reason cancer reoccurs after remission.
It’s well known that Candida and mercury toxicity have a symbiotic relationship. Dr. J. Trowbridge, author of The Yeast Syndrome, noted that reports from MDs treating chronic Candida have observed 98% of them with mercury toxicity.
Italian oncologist Dr. Tulio Simoncini’s high cancer cure rate is achieved by injecting bicarbonate of soda into cancer tumors and the surrounding Candida. Simoncini has observed Candida and cancer tumors symbiotically meshed together in all of his patients. The bicarbonate of soda rids both cancer cells and Candida growth.
Dr. Mark Sircus believes that mercury toxins are the most pervasive heavy metal toxin in our environment, contributing to much of modern man’s diseased state. He notes that mercury filled amalgams are common to many, and almost all cancer patients have several.
Sircus cites different experiments that prove how easy it is for mercury to escape from amalgams, even after just soaking in purified water for fifteen minutes! The EPA considers mercury to be the most toxic heavy metal, worse than lead, and a disposal waste hazard. Yet up to forty million tons of mercury are used annually to prepare amalgams for people’s mouths worldwide.
Other sources of mercury poisoning are vaccines, which are poisoning the very young with their abundance, and coal burning energy plants, incinerators, and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Anyone chewing or drinking HFCS spiked junk foods and sodas with mercury amalgams while getting flu shots is under triple jeopardy!
But There is a Silver Lining
Despite the FDA`s attempt at stifling natural chelating therapies to remove heavy metals, there are several ways you can take care of yourself, and these methods are usually inexpensive. Some are even dietary. Since completely avoiding heavy metals is almost impossible, chelation and detox methods could and should be incorporated into your life and done on a continous basis.
The word chelate means pincer like claw. The medical field uses this word to indicate the action of grabbing heavy metals and taking them away. The grabbing is electronic. Chelation agents have negative ions that attract the positive ions of heavy metals.
In some cases, this bonding neutralizes the toxin into a harmless molecule. Ideally, most chelation involves bonding and escorting the toxins out of the body through normal elimination channels.
Some FDA approved chelation agents, DMPS, DMSA, and EDTA are actually dangerous or only partially effective. But there are natural remedies that are safe and effective.
The FDA Approved Versions
Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is the medical staple for chelating lead and iron. It has a level of efficacy with those metals, but according to Dr. Alan Greenburg, EDTA is harmful for those who have mercury amalgams. The mercury overwhelms the EDTA and creates an even more toxic brew. He considers EDTA`s tendency to be eliminated through the kidneys as problematic.
EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS are harsh Rx chelation agents. In addition to exposing these FDA approved chelation drug inadequacies and potential problems, Doctors Greenburg, Dietrich Klinhardt, and Isaac Eliaz all support natural less harsh approaches to detoxing heavy metals. Dr. Joe Esposito, founder of Alignlife, has formulated a regimen for this purpose.
Other means of chelation
Chlorella and cilantro has been shown to be successful at getting toxic heavy metals out of the body. Around five grams a day of chlorella with several drops of cilantro oil or extract is a daily gradual, safe and effective method of detoxing all heavy metals. Even cilantro soup has clinically demonstrated effective mercury removal.
NAC, a form of the amino acid cysteine, is an important adjunct to chelation. NAC is a precursor to glutathione, the master antioxidant that has to be produced in the liver and is depleted by heavy metals. Silymarin, the active compound found in milk thistle, should be used to protect the liver further. Each of these is found in Dr. Esposito’s Ultimate Body Cleanse.
Bentonite clay is an effective detox for heavy metal. It can be ingested or used as a bath soak. This clay works through both adsorption and absorption, similar words that describe different actions.
Adsorption resembles chelation with its action of negatively charged ions attracting positive charged toxins and bonding for safe elimination. Absorption simply absorbs toxins like a sponge soaking up water. The toxins are not bonded and could wind up in other organs or tissues.
Since the toxins are absorbed outside the body using clay as a bath soak, there is probably no danger of those toxins reappearing in other internal tissues. However, you should prepare for some yucky bathwater to appear after several minutes.
Then there are zeolite products. They are purported to have high chelating qualities while safely eliminating a wide spectrum of heavy metals. Some zeolite products are in a base of fulvic acid. Fulvic acid is derived from rock mineral sources that by themselves also have chelating properties.
Getting Mercury Out of Your Mouth
You can have a biological dentist remove your mercury amalgams and replace them with non-toxic composite fillings. A biological dentist never uses mercury for fillings, and has the tools for removing mercury amalgams safely without increasing mercury toxicity in you or the dentistï¿½s office where you sit.
This is vitally important. If not properly done, you are subject to a burst of intense and extreme mercury poisoning during the operation.
For dramatic proof of mercury amalgams leaching mercury vapors into your body, check out the videos on Dr. Klinghardt’s site here.
