15. Chelating – Foods

Organic fruit and vegetables

Foods for a successful recovery 

2 – The Essential Glutathione Diet

“Glutathione is one of the body’s most important and potent antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that reduce oxidative stress by combating free radicals in the body. Maintaining levels in your body is extremely important.” Healthline.com

Any glutathione deficiency greatly reduces the ability to detoxify. It was imperative to follow.

The glutathione-led chronic mercury dental ingestion chelation daily diet included every day –

2 organic free-range eggs
1-3 raw organic garlic cloves
1 raw organic onion
1 raw organic fresh beetroot
1 raw organic bell pepper
Slices of organic root ginger
1 organic orange
100gms of raw fresh meat* 

* 100 gm fresh organic red meatballs were purchased daily and eaten raw, as discussed with my chiropractor about best ways to achieve a glutathione level. The addition was helpful to strengthen weak bones caused by mercury. However, it elevated other mineral levels in the body, such as cobalt. The meat consumption was stopped after 6 months and replaced with two portions of no more than 100 gms of beef steak a week.

Now into the fifth year of chelation, this diet is still followed by consuming at least 3 of the items listed daily and a fresh organic orange.

3. The Oxalate Diet – The foods not to eat

Louisa L. William has written an extraordinary book called Radical Medicine providing an insight to further use the Oxalate diet cutting out more foods from the organic diet. 

The foods to be avoided noted are ~ Spinach, Peanuts, Lemon Peel, Rhubarb, Parsley, Pokeweed, Chocolate, Leeks, Okra, Soy Protein, Lime Peel, Swiss Chard, Sweet Potatoes, Black Pepper, Instant coffee, Tea, Wheat germ. 

These foods bind with mercury, lead, and other heavy metals and deposit them in tissues where they can’t be easily chelated out of the system.

The information was not available until the third year of chelation and diets immediately adhered to.

4. Coffee Tea Soups Water – and other hot drinks

Sadly not informed on day one of chelation to remove hot beverages from the diet until the amalgams had been safely removed from the mouth. This is important because of the effects of high temperatures in the mouth that may cause additional chronic dental ingestion leeching of mercury, amalgam fillings into the body.

When dental works were completed, weak herbal tea was introduced, drinking a cup a day.

Fresh ground coffee was reintroduced after two years, drinking no more than two cups a day.

Organics plant-based soups were consumed after the mercury amalgam had been removed.

Water consumption had been considerably increased to ensure that the body was being regularly ‘flushed out’ and remains so. One of the tests, the macroscopic urinalysis monitors the visual colour of urine and it took more than a year of the chelation diet to restore the visual colour back to normal levels.

5. Organic Brazil Nuts – Organic Foods

Organic brazil nuts

Full of selenium, organic nuts were consumed on the first day of diagnosis, and have been since for 2 reasons. 

a) To improve a very poor performing thyroid due to the effects of chronic dental ingestion and toxins.

b) “Brazil nuts are by far one of the best food sources of selenium, an important chelator that research shows can help the body rid itself of heavy metals, especially mercury.” Dr Draxe.com

Not only is selenium required for the mercury chelation purposes, but the selenium mineral is particularly important for the conversion of thyroid hormone, from T4 to T3. It is needed to make glutathione in the body, important for the heavy metal detoxification. 

Selenium helps to detoxify mercury, silver, cadmium, arsenic and beryllium out of the body.

8-9 organic brazil nuts were consumed immediately, on the day of diagnosis, and continued to be consumed for a couple of weeks when the quantity was reduced to about 4-5 daily. 

Environmental 16 Metals blood test results, taken a few weeks later, provided evidence that this had helped stabilise selenium back to the average public range, albeit low range.

3-4 organic brazil nuts continued to be consumed after 3 months, half a nut taken at regular intervals during the day on an empty stomach. This was then reduced to 2-3 by the end of year 1 of chelation. By the end of year 2, this had further been reduced to just 1 large one or 1.5 smaller. (Organic brazil nuts can vary in size by up to 75%).

In the fifth year of chelation, 1 nut is still consumed, sometimes whilst using the chelating product chlorella is increased to 1.5 and other times is replaced with Solgar brand selenium supplements. 

This still suggests that there is still a considerable way to go, detoxifying the chronic ingested mercury, and other high noble metals out of the body.

There is medical evidence that prolonged periods of consumption of organic brazil nuts can lead to toxicity, the reason why selenium supplements were introduced and spasmodically used in accordance with the instructions provided by Solgar, a mid-priced quality brand available in the UK from a number of outlets and where any other supplements being used were also purchased from Solgar.

Supplements can vastly range in pricing and quality.

Eating raw organic food

It is important to switch to the very best food one can afford.

Eating organic fruit and vegetables mostly raw improved health, where food had been grown without the use of fertilisers and chemicals. However, it is important to look for products packaged on site where they have been grown to cover foods whilst in transportation. Our global transportation of foods add considerable toxins to our foods. Some organisations report that it can be as high as the actual growth of the product where fertilisers and chemicals have been used.

Eating a high percentage of the diet raw provides maximum nutritious value without cooking. This is easier to achieve in warmer weather where winter sees one requiring warm food, and thus cooked. It’s quite extraordinary how used one can get to eating fruits and vegetables raw that one has consumed all ones life baked, roasted, saute, braised, grilled, or fried! No microwaved food was included.

The Soil Association® is one of several websites offering excellent advice about organic living and foods. The Charity has a wholly-owned subsidiary Soil Association Certification Limited, the UK’s largest organic certification body. This is run as a ‘not for profit company’ that, as well as helping to deliver parts of Charity’s strategy, also generates financial returns that are ploughed back into Charity’s wider work.

The Soil Association black and white organic registered certification mark is the most widely recognised in the UK and appears on over 70% of all organic products. You’ll see it stamped on thousands of products in shops.

Purchasing organic food is relatively simple from reputable UK outlets who provide detailed growers information, who control their products from growth with their own suppliers, through the picking, packaging, transportation and dispatch in the UK.

There are considerable differences between the quality of organic foods being offered and prices between stores but found that weekly shopping the ‘Duchy’ range at Waitrose and Partners provided a guaranteed good quality product with longevity which was value for the price paid overall. 

Excluded from the diet were any foods sold in metal tins, and silver foil containers; avoided those wrapped in plastics only purchasing those using BPF free plastic.

 A lunchbox of raw organic foods was prepared daily and taken out.

“Important to try and consume maximum nutrients from daily food intake in favour of consuming lots of additional supplement pills.”
