Every morning, my husband, our boys (Jake ,7 and Coops, 4) and I will have celery juice followed by this tasty smoothie.
We’ve been doing this morning routine for months now and can see the impact it has on our all of our health and well being – increased energy, positive moods, improved digestion, strong immune systems and reduced unhealthy cravings.
The recipe was developed by #1 NY Times Best Selling Author Anthony William (aka Medical Medium) to purposely draw out heavy metals from the body to improve health and wellbeing. It’s also where this information has come from.
In this article you’ll learn the 5 key ingredients that combined, are very effective to draw out heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminium, nickel, copper, and cadmium out of your organs where they accumulate. You’ll also find out where to buy the ingredients and how to make it.
WHY ARE HEAVY METALS A PROBLEM ANYWAY?
Most of us are carrying around heavy metals that have been with us most of our lives and which have burrowed deep inside our tissues. Toxic heavy metals are virtually everywhere, and are present in all kinds of things that we come in contact with every day, such as aluminium cans and foil, batteries, metal cookware, old paint, as well as pesticides and herbicides.
These toxic heavy metals inflame and irritate our central nervous system (especially our brain). This can trigger conditions in children such as ADHD, ADD, ODD, autism, anxiety as well as memory loss, brain fog, fatigue, and depression in adults.
These metals create inflammation in virtually every system and organ and release poisons into the gut as well. Add further insult to injury, heavy metals are a source of food for viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other pathogens in the body.
As it’s impossible to avoid toxic heavy metals, it’s so important to minimise exposure where possible and REMOVE them from our body with the right foods. Fortunately with this recipe it’s pretty easy to do!
When we add the following five key foods to the daily diet you will go a long way toward ridding your body of these heavy metals, plus increase an enormous amount of nutrients. This smoothie is by far the easiest way to consume these foods daily and in a way children will enjoy.
So get your blender out!
THE KEY INGREDIENTS!
You can buy these ingredients online and in health food stores, however I’ve added a link to each of these ingredients and where you can buy in Australia, UK and US.
This algae draws out heavy metals from the brain, central nervous system, and liver, and soaks up the heavy metals extracted by barley grass juice extract powder.
Barley Grass Juice Powder:
This nutrient dense grass prepares heavy metals for complete absorption by spirulina (see above). It draws out heavy metals from the spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system.
This fresh herb goes deep into hard-to-reach places, extracting metals from that have been in the body for years and the toxins inherited from previous generations. Aside from this smoothie add it in guacamole and salads for increased exposure.
Where to buy:
Easy one! Local supermarket, farmers market or organic store.
These are different to organic blueberries. And while organic blueberries are very nutritious they lack the ability the ability to draw out these metals. So it’s worth trying to find for this recipe. You can also use wild blueberry powder if you cant get frozen and the links to buy are below. It is said that wild blueberries are so powerful they can they can halt or even in reverse conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia. The potent antioxidants in wild blueberries help reverse any oxidative damage left behind by the heavy metal removal.
Atlantic Dulse Flakes
Atlantic dulse is so nutrient dense. Up to 20 times that of land vegetables. Furthermore its great at going deep into hidden places of the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury, binding to it, and releasing it only when it leaves the body.
These online retailers are just suggestions to save you time. I’m not an affiliate for any of these suppliers. And it may be worthwhile to do your own research to find the best value.
