⚙️ Avoid: 🚬, processed foods, canned food & drinks, chem-trails (can’t do a lot for this one) & certain medications, ointments or nasal sprays with mercury (it won’t say mercury so look for: thimerosal, phenylmercuric acetate, phenylmercuric nitrate, mercuric acetate, mercuric nitrate, merbromin, or mercuric oxide yellow.
⚙️ Avoid: occupations/environments with high levels of exposure: construction, dental offices, industrial chemicals, soldering, metalworking, landfills, incinerators.
⚙️Filter Your Indoor Air & 💧: identify contaminants in your area on the EWG Water Database to help you choose an effective filter. There are also filters to add to your water hose for watering your plants & shower & bath water filters.
⚙️Eat Foods Grown in Non-Contaminated Soil (Organic) & Not Sprayed with Pesticides or Herbicides which can contain arsenic, lead & mercury. You can’t cook out heavy metals. According to Dr. Klinghardt – things like glyphosate in our food chain is another contaminant to watch out for. Dr. Klinghardt explains that glyphosate is a chelating agent. It binds all the trace minerals in the food. However, if it binds to aluminum, it eventually transports into the bloodstream & goes straight to the brain.” (Learn True Health Podcast with Ashley James).
⚙️Avoid 🐟, Seafood & other Food Products with High Heavy Metal Content
⚙️Avoid Lead-Based Paints
⚙️Check the ingredients on your personal care & beauty products, & supplements, ask companies for their heavy metals lab test results to verify proof of purity.
⚙️Kitchen: Avoid aluminum & non-stick cookware, choose aluminum-free baking powder, rice can contain high levels of arsenic (Basmati Rice from California has the least amount of arsenic).
⚙️At the Dental Office: select a healthier composite material if you must have a cavity filling over silver amalgam fillings, & when removing them, work with a biological dentist trained in the Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART).
I think the most powerful thing we can do is know where our food comes from & learn to spot ❌NOPE❌ ingredients on labels so we can choose better options without feeling overwhelmed.
