Detoxing Heavy Metals
STTM recommends detoxing from heavy metals to improve thyroid health but it can also improve symptoms of ADHD, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and support general cognitive function in both adults and children.
Change Your Lifestyle and avoid aluminium coming into contact with your food and drink on a daily basis.
Stop: drinking beverages from aluminium cans: cooking food on foil or foil containers (decant into glass or enamel dishes): using aluminium pans (use cast iron, pyrex, or ceramic cookware): using reusable drink bottles made from aluminium (choose stainless steel); using anti perspirants (use only organic personal care products).
Check the labels on your ingredients and avoid baking powder high in aluminium. Other common food additives to avoid are: aluminum ammonium sulfate, aluminum calcium silicate, aluminum nicotinate, aluminum potassium sulfate, aluminum sodium sulfate, aluminum stearate, sodium aluminum phosphate and aluminum sulfate.
Filter your tap water with a charcoal filter in a stainless steel housing.
Avoid all vaccinations because they contain either mercury or aluminium.
Even if you are very scrupulous at avoiding aluminium in your diet you can’t avoid it all together so it is essential to bring some chelators into your daily routine. Sadly Aluminium and Barium are used in the world-wide Stratospheric Aerosol Injection, Stratospheric Particle Injection, Geoengineering, and Cloud Seeding programmes for Solar Radiation Management. In a speech at The Council Of Foreign Relations on 29th June 2016, CIA Director John O Brennan talks openly about Geoengineering: https://bit.ly/2Egllk
Drinking as much Volvic mineral water per day as you can will help the chelation of aluminium because it is high in silica. You can fill up a stainless steel bottle to carry with you or keep a large bottled on your desk. Yes, it is in a plastic bottle, which we all know we should be avoiding for good hormonal balance, but the benefits still outweigh this negative.
There is a more expensive water being marketed in a glass bottle called ACILIS by Spritzer, but that contains high levels of Calcium, which as Morley says, causes calcification in the body and should therefore be avoided.
Epsom Salt Baths
A daily Epsom Salt bath will really help to push out toxins from the body. I use two scoops of food grade Epsom salt, one scoop of Bicarbonate of Soda, 1 tsp of Ascorbic Acid powder (powdered Vitamin C), and a couple of drops of organic Lavender Oil.
I took a super greens supplement containing Chlorella for ten years before testing my heavy metals and all of my results were very low, except mercury, which I think was a result of eating tuna twice a month.
Take a super greens supplement containing Chlorella to chelate mercury particularly if you have amalgam fillings or if you have had vaccines. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/01/28/chlorella-for-mercury-poisoning.aspx
Diatomaceous Earth Buy Health Leads Diatomaceous Earth capsules. Gradually increase up to six capsules per day, ten days on, ten days off.
· Lemon Juice Cleanse: two tablespoons of organic, preferably freshly squeezed, lemon juice in a glass of filtered tap water daily for three weeks. Then two teaspoons on alternate days.
· Apple Cider Vinegar Cleanse: two tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar with the mother (Biona do a good one) in a glass of filtered tap water daily for three weeks. Then two teaspoons on alternate days for up to 6 months.
· Consult a homeopath or naturopath for chelation therapy to remove heavy metals from the body. Some homeopaths are also trained in CEASE therapy which is very good.
Get all of your amalgam fillings safely removed by a specialist dentist who uses a rubber dam to prevent the mercury from entering your body.
Avoid all vaccinations.
After amalgam fillings and vaccines the main source of Mercury toxicity is in seafood. Ensure that you choose the low mercury fish and avoid the high mercury ones.
Low Mercury Fish: Anchovies Catfish Clams Crabs Canned light tuna (skipjack) Carp Crab Crayfish Flounder (overfished) Atlantic Haddock Croaker Freshwater perch Hake Herring Oysters Mullet Canned Salmon Fresh Salmon (Choose wild salmon because farmed salmon may be contaminated with PCBs and other chemicals.) Monkfish Pollock Sardines Scallops Shrimp (Check the fishing method because unsustainable fishing methods, often used to catch shrimp, can cause major environmental damage.) Sole Squid Tilapia Trout Whitefish Whiting Skate Snapper Spiny Lobster.
Moderate Mercury (6 servings or less per month): Bass Carp Atlantic or Pacific Halibut Lobster Mahi Mahi Monkfish Perch Canned Light Tuna Skipjack Tuna.
High Mercury (3 servings or less per month): Grouper (overfished) Spanish or Gulf Mackerel Sea Bass (overfished) Albacore Canned Tuna Yellowfin Tuna (overfished).
Highest Mercury (Avoid. Mostly all of the highest mercury fish are also overfished): King Mackerel Marlin Orange Roughy Shark Swordfish Tilefish Bigeye or Ahi Tuna.
High In Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Low in Mercury: Anchovies Wild Salmon Whitefish Sardines Herring Freshwater Trout
Iodine as a Mercury Chelator
Selenium is absolutely essential in the age of mercury toxicity for it is the perfect antidote for mercury exposure. It is literally raining mercury all over the world but especially in the northern hemisphere. And of course with the dentists poisoning a world of patients with mercury dental amalgam and the doctors with their mercury laden vaccines, selenium is more important than most of us can imagine. One must remember that mercury strips the body of selenium for the selenium stores get used up quickly because of its great affinity for mercury.’ Dr Mark Sircus OMD
Mark Sircus OMD: ‘Most physicians and surgeons view iodine from a narrow perspective and this is one of the greatest tragedies of allopathic medicine. Most health officials are chemical terrorists in disguise as they ignore the toxic buildup going on in the general population and they have no intention of informing them what they can do about it. Mercury is a perfect case in point. Mercury is toxic from whatever source it arrives into our bodies but doctors and dentists still insist on using it, which puts us solidly in the modern age of medical and dental barbarism. We like to think we are an advanced race of intelligent beings but lo and behold we find what are supposed to be the best and most intelligent of us poisoning young and old alike with mercury. It is beyond criminality what they are doing and what they are denying.’ http://www.health-science-spirit.com/iodine.html
Andrew Cutler Protocol
However, there is some disagreement in the STTM community. While they support the Iodine protocol the also recommend the Andrew Hall Cutler PhD protocol, and he said that Iodine is not a good method denouncing Iodine as a chelator. His protocol is the low dose oral frequent chelation method which includes other chelators including ALA, DMSA and DMPS. It is essential to buy his book and follow the full protocol because it can be very hard on your body. The Face Book group also recommend having your amalgam fillings removed before starting the protocol.
