Detoxing Heavy Metals
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: How can I detox heavy metals out of my body?
Detox with refined white table sugar and “foods with little or no nutritional value.”
Countless websites spew out things like …
“When you continuously consume sugar and foods with little or no nutritional value you are depleting your cells of vital micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), without adding anything back in.”
“Refined sugar contains no vitamins or minerals; therefore, it has absolutely no nutritional value. Furthermore, consumption of sugar depletes overall nutrient intake. This means that a person who consumes 20 percent of his total daily calories in sugar will have an equivalent reduction of vitamins and minerals of around 20 percent.”
Chelation therapists will correctly tell you that you can’t get the bad guys out without removing the good guys too.
Fortunately, the good guys outnumber the bad guys, so just don’t do extended eating of nothing but white table sugar and “foods with little or no nutritional value.”
One of the problems with detox programs is sussing out where the toxin goes.
Water fasting often drives heavy metals into the bone or connective tissue instead of into the toilet.
The same goes for dry fasting or juice fasting.
Most of the “heavy metal detox” advice floating around out there in cyberspace is counterproductive and often meant solely to suck money out of your wallets and purses.
