Almost all of us have been exposed to toxic levels of heavy metals that over time can accumulate in your body and cause health issues and symptoms. Fortunately, there are some very simple things you can do right away to help your body to eliminate these toxic metals from your body so you can have the best health and energy possible.
In fact, this is such a common problem for my clients and readers that I wrote a blog post suggesting five ways to help your body begin to detoxify these metals.
One of the best, easiest and by far the most delicious way of helping your body detoxify heavy metals is to eat a lot of cilantro.
Cilantro is an incredible herb that is usually adored or detested for its taste. If you haven't tried it before, start small! If you love it, you'll soon be eating loads of it in salads, smoothies, juices, soups and more!
At the moment, I'm particularly focused on supporting my body to remove any heavy metals still stored within my tissues, so I'm enjoying adding a whole bunch of cilantro to my green juice every day. It tastes so wonderful and has so many health health benefits that today I am sharing this healing juice recipe for you to enjoy as you detoxify too!
Heavy Metal Detox Juice
- 2 cups pineapple
- 2 apples
- 1 lemon (peeled if not organic)
- 2 cucumbers
- 6 stalks celery or 1 small head of celery
- 1 head of romaine
- 1 small bunch cilantro (start with less, taste and add more)
- 1 small bunch mint
- 3 stalks chard or kale
Run each ingredient through a juicer one at a time. Stir well and serve. It's best to drink on an empty stomach, ideally as your breakfast or before your breakfast.
