I did it! Today I started my first day of a Heavy Metal Detox protocol that involves using a smoothie that helps to carry the heavy metals out of the body. The select combination of ingredients together, act as a team. Each one holding the metals and passing them along on their way out.
My first sips were hmmm but by the end of the jar I was at mmmmm, which makes me very happy.
Heavy metals, such as mercury lead, cadmium, and aluminum, accumulate in the body over time and are suspected of triggering dangerous conditions like heart disease, thyroid problems, dementia, neurological conditions, autism, infertility, birth defects and even bi-polar!
The more I go down the health and nutrition rabbit hole, the more these heavy metals and their dangers pop up in my radar, so I thought I would bite the bullet and try the detox, and share the recipe! It’s always good to share your recipes. 🙂
One of my favorite sources for stuff like this is Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium. This was the recipe I did today and here is a link to his blog post on it.

I really feel this will be easy to add into my daily routine. The most challenging part will be making sure I always have enough cilantro and fresh or frozen WILD blueberries on hand. The blueberries must be wild. I will touch on that in another blog post in the future but just trust me on this one.
Someone today asked me what lead me to want/need to start doing this? My answer was that I suspect we all have been exposed to these heavy metals and that it is just a good idea to do. 🙂 And you never lose when you are adding in healthy ingredients into your diet, like those that are in this smoothie.
One of the tools I use to assess the presence of heavy metals is hair mineral analysis testing which checks for the presence of heavy metals in the body and brain and also for nutrients deficiencies. For more info
