Living a lifestyle that is healthy and natural is a great way to approach life. If you’re a clean eater and choose to only use natural body care and household products, you’re ahead of the game. Making proactive choices for good health is a commitment that pays off over a lifetime, increasing quality of health. Even with all our good choices, some of them aren’t as easy as picking an organic orange over one sprayed with pesticides.
With the modernization of our world and the increased industrialization of the spaces around us, our bodies are being impacted, especially by chemicals (more on chemical detoxification) and metals. Something as simple as a piece of sushi or the fillings in your teeth from childhood cavities may pose a risk. Want tips on avoiding metals and cleansing your system from their presence? Take a look.
Heavy metals in our system can affect everything from mood to brain function because of the impact they have on the Central Nervous System (CNS). The CNS contains the majority of the nervous system and includes the brain and spinal cord. Communication within the CNS is controlled by neurotransmitters, chemicals released by neurons, which are related to mood, emotion, digestion, muscle control, sexuality, motivation, and digestion. Exposure to heavy metal impairs communication in the CNS and is related to mood alterations and diseases. It’s not only the CNS that is negatively impacted by exposure; the skeletal system, endocrine system, and cellular system of our bodies are also affected by heavy metals. Learning disabilities, halitosis (bad breath), malnutrition, violent tendencies, organ degeneration, and brittle bones are connected to heavy and toxic metals in the system among others.
So what are we up against?
- Mercury is a metal most people are familiar with due to the press it has gotten lately. A diet high in fish, some dental fillings, and some vaccinations can contain high levels of mercury. With an increase in mercury exposure comes an increase in neurological conditions. In fact, in the U.S., we have seen a 200% increase in the last decade in these conditions in children (like autism) and a majority of the cases showed that mercury was a factor.
- Auto immune disorders and chronic conditions (lupus, eczema, psoriasis) have been linked to nickel exposure. Even more alarming: in animal studies, a significant connection has been made between nickel and the mortality rate of animals.
- ADHD, impulsivity, and inability to inhibit inappropriate responses have been linked to high levels of lead. Lead exposure affects the blood-brain-barrier in the CNS and causes an untold amount of issues there.
- Aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease and is a common skin irritant though it is found in most deodorants. Encephalopathies (brain dysfunction) and dementia are also closely linked to high levels of aluminum exposure.
The topic of metal exposure is alarming to some people but there are things you can do to protect your body and cleanse the metals from you system that may have crept in. Being sure to eat organic foods, choosing natural products for your body, and cooking on non-aluminum cookware is a great way to start your journey towards cutting down exposure to heavy metals.

Aside from her Herbal Combination and vibropathic remedies, Hanna also recommended specific foods to cleanse metals from the system. Green beans and zucchini should be eaten exclusively for 3 days to rid the body of metallic poisons. Squash and strawberries are useful to remove metallic poisons as well as arsenic from the system, especially for smokers. A final remedy is to mix 2 tablespoons ground pumpkin seeds, 1 tablespoon okra powder, and a half teaspoon cayenne pepper. Once these are mixed, add to 1 tablespoon rhubarb sauce about 3 times a day for 10 days to remove lead, arsenic, platinum, gold, and mercury from the body.
