There are two main approaches to healing disease from
a holistic perspective. These are, first, detoxification
and second, immune system improvement. LL’s Magnetic
Clay Baths are excellent for detoxification. They pull
from the body metals and chemicals, which inhibit immune
function. But detoxification is only half the solution.
While the metals and chemicals are being removed, the
body must be built back up to support a strong immune
system. This article focuses on products that work
well with the clay baths and provide support for quick
recovery and regeneration.
When the body is terribly compromised from
metals and chemicals, it is difficult to clear out all
toxins. A weakened system continuously allows toxins
to leach from the intestines back into the body. These
toxins also block the absorption of food and supplemental
nutrients, often resulting in digestive problems such
as candida (yeast infections), parasites, allergies,
memory and attention disorders, leaky-gut syndrome, and,
through a snowball effect, many other serious diseases.
Like a vicious cycle, these problems make it tough for
the body to release toxins and begin the regeneration
THE CORRELATION OF THE pH FACTOR
AND LEAKY GUT SYNDROME IN RELATION TO CHRONIC DISEASE
The imbalance of pH, acidity and alkalinity
in the body, is a key factor in chronic illness. Our
western diets often cause the body to be too acid. When
the pH factor is balanced between 7.0 to 7.4, the body
is able to clean itself and dump metals and chemicals.
But if a person suffers from another condition called “leaky
gut syndrome,” maintenance of a balanced pH is
not enough to stave off illness. If you have metal/chemical
toxicity and are ‘sick and tired of being sick
and tired,’ IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT to check for
a leaky gut problem.
Leaky gut syndrome is an advanced stage
of toxicity characterized by lesions in the walls of
the intestinal system, which allow toxins to be reabsorbed
into the body instead of being eliminated through the
normal procedure. This syndrome causes a breakdown, not
only in the digestive system, but in the entire immune
system as well. Many people are aware that parasites,
allergies and memory loss, to name only a few symptoms,
are associated with metal and chemical toxicity, but
it is the rare individual who understands the influence
of leaky gut syndrome on these common chronic ailments.
When the toxic load reaches a level where the organs
are also implicated, there is no place for the toxins
to go except through the skin. Skin rashes are sure-fire
signal that it is time to check for a leaky gut.
A visual analogy helps here. Imagine a
goldfish with toxic organs swimming in a bowl of dirty,
murky water. When the fish emits toxins into the water,
it gets even dirtier. This is similar to what happens
when our toxic bodily organs try to dump metals and chemicals
into our bloodstream, which is already full of infections,
viruses and parasites, etc. The result is known as a “healing
crisis,” which is to say that one becomes sick
from the overload while detoxifying. Why should anyone
already suffering from a chronic condition have to suffer
even more during the “healing” process? My
suggestion is that we detoxify slowly, COMFORTABLY, and
in accordance with the body’s priorities.
PROGRAMS FOR HELPING THE LEAKY GUT, BALANCING
THE pH AND IMPROVING CELLULAR NUTRITION
These are the steps I recommend if you
are chronically ill and don’t seem to be improving:
- Take a test to find out if you have
a leaky gut spreading toxins throughout your body.
A urine test from your doctor or from the Great Smokies
Diagnostic Laboratory (888-891-3061) will provide that
- Check for jaw bone infections (cavitations)
or infected teeth, which might be creating a systemic
infection in the body….but that is the subject
for another article.
- Seal the leaky gut, so that the toxins
are contained within the intestinal tract, with natural
remedies such as golden seal herb, concentrated aloe
vera, apple pectin, colostrum and slippery elm herb
(follow the instructions on the products’ bottles
or check with your health practitioner. A basic ounce
of aloe very before each meal may be a good way to
start; continue it for 6 months to improve your intestinal
- The next step, after sealing the gut,
is to clean up the floating toxins or “body pollution.” This
is done by balancing the pH so that it is between 7.0
and 7.4. Then, as the toxins clear up, a person starts
to feel better. This is accomplished in two ways.
- First, eat a diet of alkaline foods.
Use pH strips (found in a drug or health food store)
to check your pH factor during the day in order to
determine the affect of the various foods (see some
of our recipes below).
- Start using the products mentioned below
to balance the pH and clean up the body toxins. They
help absorption of nutrients at the cellular level.
- Start eating some of the alkaline foods,
drinks and recipes suggested below.
RECOMMENDED COMPANIES AND PRODUCTS
FOR ALKALINITY, pH BALANCE AND NUTRITIONAL ABSORPTION
1) At the top of my list is CELLFOOD produced
by Lumina, winner of the 1997 Advanced Technology Award.
It is a wonderful, unique product for chemically sensitive
people. This one ounce bottle, which makes 22 quarts
of super-energized dietary supplement, seems to do it
all! It is a cell food containing only the finest natural
plant substances, which has:
78 ionic minerals, 34 enzymes, 17 amino acids and many
electrolytes. It features an exceptional cell-oxygenating
process that balances the body on the physical, electrical,
chemical, biological, emotional and psychological levels!
CELLFOOD normalizes the pH, enhances energy levels, improves
the digestive process, promotes parasite elimination,
relieves allergies, helps one be alert and able to concentrate,
and finally, repairs and rebuilds tissues. Because the
particles are tiny, 4 to 7 nanometers in size, the nutrients
are quickly and efficiently absorbed at the cellular
level; this is especially important because metal and
chemical toxins block the absorption of nutrients in
food and supplements. Indeed, CELLFOOD addresses so many
CELLFOOD may be found at your local health
store, or call 1-800-257-3315 for sources. I recommend
that the chemically sensitive person start slower than
what is recommended on the bottle— start at perhaps
2 or 3 drops a couple of times a day and gradually work
up to the 8 drops in a glass of water, 3 times a day,
which is the recommended dose. (Retails for $24..95).
RECIPES AND FOODS FOR THE CHEMICALLY
We recommend these recipe books to help
you in your detoxification process. Dr. Ted Baroody’s
Alkalize or Die states the pH of almost every type of
food. His recipes have been figured for their pH value.
This book, which can be found in most health stores,
is a great help when you go food shopping (800-260-4050).
Another great recipe book for chemical/metal toxicity
is Toxic Immune Syndrome Cookbook by W.R. Kellas, Ph.D.
It contains yeast free, hypoallergenic recipes to support
the immune system. His line of products are geared for
the environmentally sensitive diet (619-632-9042). We
also recommend Ageless Remedies from Mother’s Kitchen
by Hannah Kroeger (800-225-8787). The following simple
recipes and foods from her book have been helpful to
METAL POISONING: Green beans and zucchini
squash. Eat these two vegetables exclusively for three
days. She claims it will rid your body of metal poison.
Buehler’s Soup – Green beans, zucchini squash,
celery, and parsley in equal parts. Cook and add seasonings.
Eat for three days. Assists in removing toxic metal poisoning.
Squash and strawberries help to remove arsenic poison;
they are extra good for smokers as they help remove other
FALLOUT: Toast one slice of bread very
brown. Butter it and put cinnamon on it. If you like
you may use brown sugar. This counteracts radiation.
LEAD POISONING: Take 1 tablespoon grated
red cabbage three times daily. Foods rich in zinc are
helpful for counteracting lead.
MERCURY POISONING: Cilantro and chlorella,
are known for removing mercury. Cilantro is easily contaminated;
be careful in your choice. The organic ‘clean’ chlorella
has been known to remove mercury from the gut, while
cilantro removes mercury from the brain. Cilantro is
available in drops also. NDF, a combination of liquid
chlorella and cilantro is reported to “have no
side effects” by the DAMS (national organization
against mercury amalgams) newsletter. It is a nano-colloidal
easily absorbed product available from BioRay (310-473-1813).
We are told that Nature’s Balance has a ‘clean’ chlorella-cilantro
CADMIUM: Vegetables from the cabbage family
help remove cadmium.
NICKEL: Poppy seeds. Can be taken in rolls,
cake or with honey. Take one teaspoon of poppy seeds
with honey by mouth twice a day.
JUICES: Morinda (864-241-2010) has a nutritional,
organic, immune-boosting product form the fruit, noni,
grown in Tahiti. It is great for digestion, focusing
attention and numerous other ailments. An ounce or two
a day is usually sufficient. Another great juice for
detoxifying metals is organic unsweetened cranberry juice.
TEAS: Teas for radiation toxicity are made
from thyme and willow leaves. A metal detoxification
tea is Calli, made of organic blends of green and black
teas by Sun Rider (813-431-3305). From the same company
comes Fortune Delight tea for toxins trapped in fat cells.
Fresh organic ginger tea is good for digestion, gas,
bloating, boosting energy, relieving body acid and nausea,
all symptoms of metal and chemical toxicity.
WATER: Good, clean water is vital for a
healthy diet. Water filters that regulate pH are now
available. Prill Water is known to remove chlorine, fluoride
and carcinogenic contaminants from water through a one-time
purchase of ‘crystal beads’. It was researched
specifically for nuclear radiation, which it effectively
clears. It has wonderful effects when taken internally
as a drinking water. We suggest using 4 ounces or more
with our specially formulated metal/chemical detox clay
baths to enhance your detoxification process.
CHEWING YOUR FOODS:
And of course, chew, chew, chew your food. According
to Lino Stanchich in his book, POWER EATING PROGRAM,
it is chewing our food --- at least 50 times--- each
mouthful that really makes all the difference in having
