No More Heavy Metals Weighing Me Down!!!Nikki
I always speak about how important it is to listen to our bodies, especially when you have a gut feeling that a part of its assembly line might not be functioning to its best ability….and in this case I really do mean a gut feeling. Heavy metals can be hard to avoid consuming. They are often found in polluted air, unfiltered water and pesticide-laden food. The following SYMPTOMS may point to HEAVY METAL in your system.
- Night sweats
- Problems sleeping
- Dark rings under your eyes
- Sensitive teeth
- Digestive issues
It’s extremely important to be aware of this especially if you have autoimmune issues like myself, heavy metals are even more dangerous.
Parsley and cilantro work together to help detox our bodies and purge any aluminum, mercury, nickel or lead in our bloodstream and organs. Parsley contains vitamins and essential minerals that help with detoxing and is also a natural blood sugar balancer, which helps remove any accumulated salt and waste. Cilantro binds to heavy metals in our bloodstream and purifies not only our blood, but tissues and organs as well. In addition to cilantro cleansing our system it also helps in the fight against diseases. Together parsley and cilantro make a great team by attracting the heavy metals in our body and disposing them!
Just as parsley and cilantro attract heavy metals in our body they do the same in nature, so it’s extremely important to make sure the soil these plants grow in do not contain heavy metals. I suggest growing your own. You can add parsley and cilantro to a smoothie or juice (find recipe below) or to almost any dish you make. To avoid heavy metals in your everyday life you can cook with alliums, replace any plastic cooking utensils with silicone or bamboo and make your own personal care products such as house hold cleaners (stay tuned for a post on how to do so coming soon!). No time to be weighed down by these nasty heavy metals. It’s time to feel free and pay attention to what we are putting in out bodies!
