2-5 Foods for a successful recovery  – Post 15

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

The glutathione-led high 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.

Any glutathione deficiency greatly reduces the ability to detoxify.

3. The Oxalate Diet – The foods not to eat

Louisa L. Williams book, called Radical Medicine provided 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.

4. Coffee Tea Soups – and other hot drinks – Avoid pre-amalgam removal

All hot drinks and soups were removed from the diet whilst dental works continued, being replaced with bio-compatible alternatives. This is important because of the effects of high temperatures in the mouth that may cause additional chronic dental ingestion from mercury, amalgam fillings.

When dental works were completed, 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.

Water consumption had been considerably increased and remains so.

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

5. 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. By the end of year 2, this had further been reduced to just 1 or 1.5. 

In a fifth of chelation, 1 nut is still consumed, sometimes whilst using chelating product chlorella is increased to 1.5 and other times is replaced with 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.

Supplements can vastly range in pricing and quality. Solgar brand was used, being a mid-priced brand. 

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 purchase products where they have been grown and the packaging process immediately takes place at that place, covering the foods. Our global transportation of foods add considerable toxins to our foods. 

Eating a high percentage of the diet raw provides maximum nutritious value without cooking. 

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 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 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.”
