Powerful Natural Detoxifier
In our increasingly polluted world our bodies are subjected to continual toxic assaults. Industrialisation has led to the build-up of dangerous chemicals and toxins now thought to be responsible for a plethora of illness and conditions.
From asthma to cancer, and degenerative illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease – the evidence points increasingly toward man-made causes.
The Japanese have had urgent and tragic needs to free themselves from harmful toxins in their recent history. Hiroshima and Nagasaki left thousands living with the legacy of toxic radioactive fallout, and rapid post-war industrialisation has resulted in tragedies such as Minamata disease, caused by mercury-polluted factory effluence entering the food chain.
As a result of these tragedies, much research has been undertaken into chelates and detoxification agents. Chlorella has emerged as a powerful natural detoxifier and chelator. Studies have shown that chlorella can effectively remove heavy metals such as mercury from our bodies.
Perhaps the greatest concern many of us face in terms of exposure to heavy metals, is mercury amalgam dental fillings. Symptoms of mercury poisoning include:
- Fits of anger
- Memory impairment
- Loss of concentration
- Low self-esteem
- Decline of intellect
- Itching or burning pain
- Skin discoloration (pink cheeks, fingertips and toes),
- Skin peeling
- Skin rashes
- Profuse sweating
- Fast or irregular heart-beat,
- High blood-pressure
- Loss of hair
- Muscle weakness
- Kidney disfunction
A 2003 World Health Organization report on mercury toxicity concluded that:
- Studies on humans and animals have demonstrated that dental amalgam contributes significantly to mercury body burden in humans with amalgam fillings.
- Dental amalgam is the most common form of exposure to elemental mercury in the general population, constituting a potentially significant source of exposure to elemental mercury.
- “Even at very low mercury levels, subtle changes in visual system function can be measured.”
- In multiple sclerosis patients with amalgam fillings, red blood cells, haemoglobin, hematocrit, thyroxine (T4), T-lymphocytes and T-8 (CD8) suppressors cells levels are significantly lower, while blood urea nitrogen and hair mercury levels are significantly higher.
- The report also notes that regarding elemental mercury exposure, the main form of exposure from dental amalgam,” most studies rely on assessment of exposure at the time of study, which may not be fully informative, as mercury has a long half-life in the body and thus accumulates in continuous exposure “, making the evaluation of effects on health uncertain.
