Detox & Prevention Guide

Bolstering Your Body's Natural Defenses

Note: A description of specific foods and supplements is presented after the introduction. Scroll down to find them. Also be sure to read the disclaimer and cautions on the detox guide intro page.

It turns out, we mammals have our own built-in detox system that pretty much runs by itself.   Just as it flushes and eliminates dead cells and other waste material, this fine-tuned machinery coordinates with the immune system to identify and destroy infectious agents and other pathogens.  If you're lucky, most toxins that get inside you, even heavy metals, will be quietly ushered out one of your many orifices, and you'll never know they were there. 

But two major obstacles impede the auto-detox process.  One is a health problem, like inadequate nutrition or sleep, indigestion, a suppressed immune system or an illness.  The second obstacle relates to the environment.  From air pollution to insecticides, additives in municipal water to pandemic viruses, electromagnetic interference to nuclear radiation, our bodies are constantly under attack by a host of manmade adversaries, all invisible to the naked eye.

Add aluminum oxide from chemtrails to the mix, and just about all of God's creatures on earth may be outgunned for the forseeable future. So if you plan to live a productive life from start to finish, it's going to take more than a multivitamin in the morning and an occasional home-cooked meal. The ideal solution, of course, would be to find an unpolluted environment where you can gather or grow wholesome, foods to eat, have a natural water supply to draw from, and fresh air to breathe. Otherwise, you'll need to take steps to beef up the walls around your biological real estate wherever you live now. That starts with daily monitoring of what's going on in the world (eg. food recalls, viruses circulating, geoengineered weather forecasts, etc.). You should also consider eating most of your meals at home. It's the only way to control what you ingest into your body. Finally, a pro-active approach should include taking nutritional supplements to bolster your natural defenses and implement a detox program to help weed out and extract toxins.

According to Dr. Frank Lipman, detoxification requires a steady supply of nutrients. “We need hundreds of enzymes, vitamins and other molecules to help rid the body of unwanted waste products and chemicals… Although the bulk of the work is done by the liver and the intestinal tract, the kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin are all involved...”

In fact, the liver filters out about 75% of toxic wastes, using bile to break this material down for excretion.   Some toxins are then sent to the colon for elimination in the form of stool. Those toxic debris that are water-soluble are picked by the kidneys, which constantly filter the bloodstream and send the wastes out through the urinary tract.  Still other toxins exit the body through the lungs, the pores of the skin and hair follicles through sweating, or by way of mucus, ear wax and other excretions.

Long story short, removal of metals and other contaminants is not a quick process. And while chelating agents are important, it's critical that you keep your body clicking on all cylinders to insure success.

“Your diet should be low in carbohydrates, moderate-to-low in protein, and high in beneficial fats (as high as 50-70 percent),” says natural health guru Dr. Joseph Mercola. “Proteins repair mangled protein molecules and supply sulfur, and fats repair your cell membranes. This type of diet not only prepares your body for detoxification but also has the additional benefit of improving your insulin sensitivity and reversing Type 2 diabetes.”

Again, the liver is the organ most vulnerable to burnout from detoxing activity.  According to LiverSupport.com, “When there is an overabundance of pollutants to filter or if the sieve is clogged, the waste backs up and may spark a variety of health problems.” These include fatigue, pain in the abdomen above the liver, acid reflux, bloating,  headaches, joint pain, itchy skin and high blood pressure.  It’s no wonder that detox experts emphasize the care of the liver when devising programs and making recommendations."

A few other points to keep in mind:

Foods & Supplements That Bolster Your Natural Defenses

Here are some common foods and supplements that can optimize your body’s detox system:

Protein, especially glutathione

Protein provides the fuel for our cells and organs to do work. And when it comes to detoxing contaminants, glutathione is the one protein to emphasize in your diet.  It’s especially helpful in detoxifying the liver.

The body naturally synthesizes glutathione from the amino acids cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. According to Livestrong.com,  “Glutathione helps create lymphocytes, the cells of your immune system, which keep your body's defenses strong and producing antibodies. Although glutathione supplements are available, your body might not absorb them very well.” 

So it’s best to get your protein from food   Raw tomatoes and spinach, for instance, contain nearly 170 milligrams of glutathione on average per serving.  Other sources include avocado, asparagus, grapefruit, strawberries, orange, cantaloupe, broccoli, okra, peach and zucchini, which are rich in the glutamate and glycine. Sources of cysteine include eggs, meat, Brussels sprouts, red peppers, garlic, onions, carrots, whey protein, and wheat germ. Vitamin C, incidentally, stimulates the production of glutathione by your body's internal chemistry.

Anti-oxidants

You may not realize it, but your body is always seconds away from a life-changing internal catasphrophe at the hands of chemicals known as free radicals. Your liver creates these bad boys in the process of breaking down metals and other toxins. Ordinarily, they get crushed quickly by another chemical known as an anti-oxidant. Yet free radicals proliferate when there's not enough anti-oxidants on the scene to keep them in check.

The solution to this hair-raising scenario is to consume foods and beverages with high anti-oxidant levels.  Doctors sometimes refer to free radicals as “oxidative stresses”, since the burning of heat involves oxygen, and the liver burns plenty of heat during a detox operation.  While our bodies do produce anti-oxidants on their own, that production slows down as we age or fall ill.  Hence the recommendation to eat more produce, since fruits and veggies have tons of anti-oxidants onboard. Those with the most bang, so to speak, include berries, prunes, Brussels sprouts, alfalfa  sprouts, broccoli, beets, onions, and corn. Green teas also contain anti-oxidants.

Bioflavonoids are a type of anti-oxidant that's particularly beneficial. Once referred to as Vitamin P, nowadays bioflavonoids are described as "nature's biological response modifiers". They combat allergens, viruses, and carcinogens. They also protect collagen, a protein that acts as a sort of glue holding all the body's connective tissue together. Food sources of bioflavonoids include citrus fruits (especially the white, stringy inner skin), berries, broccoli, eggplant, flax seeds, onions, legumes and red wine.

According to Prescription for Nutritional Healing, Vitamins A, E and C and the mineral Selenium are all anti-oxidants.

Gamma-Linoleic acid (GLA), meanwhile, is a fatty acid anti-oxidant that regulates the critical T-Lymphocite function in the body. GLA relies on vitamins and minerals to carry out its work. Signs that you may be deficient in GLA include skin problems, high cholesterol, ADHD, polyps in the mouth and rheumatoid arthritis. One source of pre-formed GLA you can take is as a supplement is Evening Primrose Oil.  

Enzymes

Enzymes serve as spark plugs for your body's digestive and metabolic functions.   While the body produces its own supply, its production at times will run short, especially as we age.  Signficantly, when digestive enzymes are absent, food doesn't get broken down properly, allowing large undigested molecules to pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. This unsavory development is known as “Leaky Gut Syndrome”, which can trigger the onset of a degenerative disease. The presence of undigested food clumps diverts the liver from its more pressing assignment of breaking down toxins. That's why your supply of digestive enzymes should be maintained at an optimum level.

Metabolic enzymes support energy production and detoxification, ”governing all the body’s organs, tissues and cells,” according to Prescription for Nutritional Healing.    Since enzymes are naturally synthesized by the body from protein, vegans are most likely to be deficient in them. But there's a simple enough solution: Eat sprouts, avocados, papayas, pineapple, bananas, mangos and other foods high in enzymes. Alternatively, you can get your enzyme fix by grinding up dried papaya seeds and sprinkling them on your meal.

Because enzymes are heat-sensitive, they get destroyed whenever you cook food above 118 Fahrenheit.  This is one reason why alternative healers are always promoting raw foods as the key to health. However, you can still absorb enzymes from slightly cooked vegetables and fruits as well. You can also buy an enzyme supplement from one of many companies that sell them. Not all products are alike, so be sure to read product reviews on Amazon and elsewhere before purchasing. A good supplement  should contain the enzymes pancreatin, lipase, amylase and protease. Bromelain and papain are likewise beneficial. Dismutase is a metabolic enzyme that repairs cells and fights the common toxin known as superoxide.

Probiotics

Whenever anti-biotics are needed to treat an infection, a pro-biotic supplement is prescribed with them.  Pro-biotics are the good bacteria that live in the intestinal tract and help your enzymes break down food.  Having a full tank of these tiny critters, even when you're not taking anti-biotics, will prevent bad bacteria from colonizing, since good bacteria are occupying all the seats in the room. Products containing natural pro-biotics include yogurt, kefir, non-processed cheese, sauerkraut, miso and tempeh, along with other cultured or fermented foods.

A good probiotic supplement will contain L. acidophilus, B. Longum and B. bifidum; L. fermentum and L. rhamnosus provide other benefits to the digestive system.  Be sure to check the expiration date on the supplement, since pro-biotics have a relatively short life span stitting in a pill bottle.  You may also need to keep them refrigerated.

 Garlic and Other Sulfur-Rich Foods

A natural chelator, garlic is a must in today’s world of metal toxification and weaponized viruses on the prowl.  In addition to its detoxing capacity, garlic wards off viruses, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, and is an antioxidant. The sulfur compound in garlic, allicin, is undoubtedly worth its weight in gold, since it has  antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-parasitic properties.  Garlic is also high in Vit. C,  B6 and manganese.

Keep in mind, too much heating destroys many of the beneficial properties of garlic. Sesame tahini recipes, which call for fresh, crushed garlic, makes for a delicious sauce for falafel, beans and rice or even as a dressing for green salads. If you can't stomach raw garlic, you can buy an aged and odorless form of it from health food stores or online.  Kyolic is a popular brand. You should wait 10 minutes after cutting garlic to cook it or eat it raw.  This allows the allicin to form.

Be sure to include many other sources of sulfur in your diet as well. According to Livestrong.com, “Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, turnips, bok choy and kohlrabi, are rich sources of sulfur-containing substances known as glucosinolates… Protein-rich foods, such as fish, poultry, meats, nuts and legumes… are good dietary sources of sulfur… While the majority of amino acid sulfur is needed for making protein, it also serves as a cofactor for certain enzymes." Onions, leeks and chives also contain sulfur.

Magnesium (instead of calcium) supplementation

Thanks to modern agricultural methods, most people are deficient in magnesium, zinc and other minerals needed to support bone and brain health.  Exacerbating the problem of depleted soils, on most big farms the use of NPK fertilizers is  antagonistic to magnesium.  So most non-organic crops may be nearly nil in this mineral.

Dr. Carolyn Dean states in an article entitled Magnificent Magnesium,  “Research indicates that ample magnesium will protect brain cells from the damaging effects of aluminum, beryllium, cadmium, lead, mercury and nickel. We also know that low levels of brain magnesium contribute to the deposition of heavy metals in the brain that heralds Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. It appears that the metals compete with magnesium for entry into the brain cells. If magnesium is low, metals gain access much more readily… There is also competition in the small intestine for absorption of minerals. If there is enough magnesium, aluminum won’t be absorbed.”

Fluoridated water also interferes with the body’s absorption of magnesium.  As mentioned earlier, spring water is a better choice, not only because it’s fluoride-free, but because it gets pumped from underground, ostensibly a place that aluminum oxide from chemtrails won’t reach.

Besides keeping your body free of toxic metals, magnesium also appears to do a better job of replenishing the body's calcium supply than either calcium supplements or a dairy-rich diet. In his book Healing With Whole Foods, Paul Pitchford explains that in China, where traditionally almost no dairy is consumed, arthritis and bone deterioration are not major problems. Moreover, "Magnesium stimulates calcitonin production [a hormone] and therefore increases calcium in the bones while drawing it out of soft tissue," Pitchford states. He goes on to explain, "Many forms of arthritis are characterized by excess calcium appearing in the soft tissue while skeletal calciums is lacking." In other words, too much calcium supplementation may actually be harmful.

Food sources high in magnesium include almonds, cashews, sesame seeds, buckwheat and chlorofyll-rich foods. Organic leafy greens, unrefined sea salt, seeds, other tree nuts and whole grains also contain magnesium. According to the previously cited article Magnificent Magnesium, “Certain wild-crafted forage foods really stand out, however, such as nettles (860 mg per 100 grams) and chickweed (529 mg per 100 grams), and add many tonic and nutritive benefits to both human and livestock diets largely due to their high mineral content. Kelp, ancient denizen of the sea, contains spectacular levels, as do most sea vegetables…. Utilizing bone broths on a daily basis will provide another excellent source of minerals, including magnesium, in a highly assimilable form."

PLEASE NOTE: Arsenic has been found in major brand name kelp supplements. Norwegian kelp is thought to be uncontaminated but be sure to do some research before buying any product.

As for taking a magnesium supplement, it’s considered safe to take the suggested dosage even if your levels are already normal. Loose, dark greasy stools may indicate an excess amount in your system.  However, you shouldn’t take magnesium at all (except as prescribed by a doctor) if you have kidney problems, a slow heart rate, a bowel obstruction, Lyme Disease or some other type of chronic infection.  In recent years, concerns have been raised about magnesium and other minerals providing cover for the biofilms that help harmful bacteria colonize. Again, take time to explore various options and warnings before using a particular product. 

Spelt (Wheat Substitute)

Before wheat became hybridized centuries ago, it was known as spelt.  Nearly all of today’s wheat (organic and conventional) is the genetically modified version invented in the 1960’s, before genetic engineering became regulated.  Apparently, each time we eat wheat, we ingest a couple dozen carbohydrates, proteins and other molecules that completely mystify our digestive systems..  The title of Dr. William Davis’s book, Wheat Belly, pretty much sums up the end result of this consumption.  While more expensive than wheat, spelt tastes just like it and provides all the health perks of a whole grain food.  Organic spelt flour is available at natural food stores, so you can make your own pancake and muffin mixes, cookies and other baked treats from it. You can lower the cost by cutting it with another flour, like oat or rice.  You can buy spelt bread at organicgrocers, but these products are previously frozen and can taste pretty flat.

Milk thistle (Silymarin)

This is a flowering herb that’s considered highly beneficial to the liver. Many studies have proven its efficacy. It’s used to treat cirrhosis, jaundice, hepatitis, and gallbladder disorders, as well as Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol.

Herbs, Essential Oils and Aromatherapy

Herbs and spices provide many beneficial properties, don’t cost an arm and a leg, and are easy to absorb. Consider getting up to speed on this traditional method of healing.   Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health: 175 Teas, Tonics, Oils, Salves, Tinctures, and Other Natural Remedies for the Entire Family pretty much covers the subject of herbs.  Kathy Keville’s Aromatherapy, meanwhile, sheds light on vibrational healing.  When those three Magi brought Frankincense and Myrrh to baby Jesus in the manger – as the story goes - they evidently weren’t just trying to be fashionable.

Yoga, Breath Work  and Chakras

While it may sound over the top, eastern healing modalities have a long history of turning lives around and generating good will across the planet. Unlike supplements, you will often feel instant relief when working with the “subtle body”, as it’s sometimes called.  For one thing, many people are bad breathers, spawning a litany of health problems with their short, shallow breaths, not exhaling CO2 properly, and not really inhaling enough oxygen to begin with.  Since we breathe roughly 18,000 times a day, this impacts  our lives at the cellular level in a myriad of ways. By spending 15 minutes a day breathing in and out in an easy, unlabored manner, you can re-program your lungs, experience instant relaxation, and rejuvenate your cells with a huge dose of life-giving oxygen.

Yoga stretching (known as Hatha Yoga) can unblock energy bottlenecks and give your internal organs room to expand. Your diaphragm, for one, could probably use that extra space. Stretching also elongates your spine, which allows the adjacent ligaments, tissue and muscles to get out from under the pinch of the vertebrae. 

The word chakra means “wheel”.  Like acupuncture meridians, several of these invisible wheels are located along your spine, providing a channel for energy to run through your body. If you read Anodea Judith’s book, Wheels of Life, you’ll learn a common-sense approach to making good use of your chakras without having to spend another dime on talk therapy.  This title and her follow-up volume, The Sevenfold Journey, are highly recommended for anyone dealing with multiple challenges in their lives, both healthwise and heartwise.
