Preparation and Detoxification in Human Health


It is important to properly prepare your body before you do a heavy metal detoxification. This will ensure you not only properly benefit from it, but that you do not have any problems in the process.


Practical Consideration

It is important to have optimal gut function when you are detoxifying.  You should take probiotics and enzymes before you start to detoxify.  Probiotics can also help bind toxins and eliminate them from your body.  “Binding isotherms for cadmium and lead were characterized for Lactobacillus rhamnosus LC-705.” (1)

The liver is an important organ and plays a key role in the detoxification process.  “It also takes up toxic substances and converts them into harmless substances or makes sure they are released from the body.” (5)  We need good nutritional support for the liver so we should use healthy fats such as omega-3 fats, olive oil, and flax oil, amino acids which boost your liver’s detoxification capacity, and minerals, particularly zinc and selenium which help your body detoxify metals.


Get Tested

It is best to get tested for heavy metals so you know exactly what you are dealing with. If you do not get tested you are only guessing and that is a poor way to approach detoxification.  I suggest the urine test because I believe it is more accurate than the hair analysis.  You should also use a provocative agent for the test.


Dealing with Mercury Fillings

Find a biological dentist to evaluate the extent of your mercury fillings and options for replacing them.  This can be done slowly over time, but must be done carefully and only under a trained biological dentist’s supervision to avoid burdening yourself with more mercury during the removal process.


Competent Guidance

It is good idea to consult with someone who is experienced with detoxification that can help advise you about the process.  To use a medical doctor or health consultant is a good idea to help you through the process. You want to do it safely and slowly.
