The Heavy Metals Cleanse
Preparing Mind and Body
The first step is to prepare the body with a colon and heavy metals cleanse in support of your efforts to lower your blood pressure naturally. It will help remove toxins that put a strain on the liver, cardiovascular system, and in general, make you feel unwell and sluggish.
This may sound a bit scary, but there is nothing to a heavy metals cleanse.
Remember that you are looking for quick results so before you start, make sure you have all the items needed before you begin, then start by taking a blood pressure reading! Why? You need to see the early results to boost your confidence and continue dealing with your blood pressure naturally. Get your doctor to take a reading too, that way he will be able to note any progress, support you, and gradually your prescription may be reduced.
Why a heavy metals cleanse? Every day you are exposed to toxins that are absorbed through the skin, in the food we eat, the water and the air. In fact there are now over 400,000,000 chemicals and toxins in the world in comparison to 1,000,000 in the 1930`s.
Although your body, which is an amazing organism, naturally detoxifies, the bombardment of pollutants may overload the system, building up a toxic residue until the organs start to dysfunction.
The chemicals and heavy metals such as Cadmium, Lead, Arsenic, Copper, Thallium may be having a toll on your cardiovascular system, causing free radical damage, inflammation, decreased red blood cell count etc, affecting blood pressure and eventually heart disease. Cadmium has been found to influence the development of hypertension in animals, but no trials have been done on humans.
A herbal formula that contains Chlorella is great for help rid the body of Cadmium.
One way the body expels these toxins is though sweat, so sauna is another means of eliminating some of them but vital minerals are also lost through sweating and therefore need to be replaced by supplementing with an ionic mineral solution.
So now that you have taken your blood pressure reading, record it on a chart before you proceed with the heavy metals cleanse.
If you have never done this before and don`t know your diastolic from your systolic, learn how to do it from the simple instructions and information from my chart page.
Form a habit of drinking freshly squeezed fruit juice, or juice that has no added sugars and colorants, first thing in the morning. A pH balance diet helps you learn to eat and drink the right balance of acid and alkaline foods. The acid in the fruit juice is a mild detoxifying agent. It will effectively help remove some of the toxins from the body, but make sure you are not taking any antacids that contain aluminum.
Choose from 150mls of watermelon, lemon in hot water, cranberry juice, apple etc, or you can take fresh vegetable juices if you prefer. Remember! No juices with added sugar.
Learn to drink more water. The recommended 2 liters of water every day is controversial so a good guide to know if you are drinking enough is to check your urine. If it is a dark yellow you are probably not drinking enough. The color should be light yellow.
Drink water preferably half an hour or more before you eat and not along with the meal. If you take it with the meal the stomach acid will be diluted and the food will stay in your system longer than it needs to.
Drinking plenty of water helps lower blood pressure and you need it to flush the toxins out of your system. If you find this difficult, as my friends often lament, try using a straw, it can help you drink in much larger quantities.
You should take time to make changes and do them one step at a time to achieve your goal.
Herbs That Help Remove Heavy Metals
Keep testing your pressure everyday and jotting the results in a chart. Note down any slight improvements, and let your doctor know about them too, periodically.
If you would like some extra but basic information on why colon cleansing is an important part of your health regime, I recommend this brief booklet. Colon Cleanse the Easy Way
It isn`t bulky to read and gives the general public enough information to start without going into heavy details. It is not a colonic irrigation which has been shown to be dangerous and the equipment for carrying it out to be illegal, but a herbal mix that will support the health of organs as well as purge.
Follow any Colon Cleanse instructions carefully and do not precede the recommended dosage. This step can take 7 consecutive days or several weeks to complete depending on the product. Don`t worry! You still have control of your bowels.
Try and eat sensibly. Don`t be drastic but cut down on or eliminate certain foods like junk food, red meat, salt, sugar and other refined foods.
If you can make some changes with your diet, add rich sulfur foods like garlic and cabbage.
