Detox Smoothie

We live in such a toxic world these days that it is hard to escape coming into contact with heavy metals and becoming toxic ourselves. Incorporating foods that help the body rid itself of these invaders is critical for overall health.

If you are severely taxed with toxic heavy metals you may require more intensive treatment under the supervision of a licensed practitioner trained in heavy metal detox. Wendy Myers is a great resource for information on detoxing heavy metals from your body. Check out her website if you want to investigate further.

Some symptoms of heavy metal poisoning include:

Chronic fatigue

Chronic unexplained body pains and headaches

Alcohol intolerance/allergies

Depression, anxieties, brain fog

Loss of memory and forgetfulness

Digestive issues

Yeast infection and parasites

Low immune system

Anemic and blood disorders

Low body temperature, cold hands and feet

Night sweats

Muscle and joint pains

Muscle tremors

Female reproductive issues

Insomnia

Dark rings under eyes

Sensitive teeth

Skin problems

Adding foods and smoothies like this one will help assist your body in its own natural detoxing abilities.

Cilantro and parsley have excellent antimicrobial properties which make them very beneficial for healing the gut. When the gut is healthy, the immune system is strengthened, thus reducing the risks of many chronic diseases. They are also diuretic and make good kidney-cleansing agents that lower the risks of kidney stones.

This smoothie is one of my favorites! I was inspired to make this one based on a recipe from Food Matters. I didn’t think combining these particular fruits and herbs would taste so great but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s amazing! Try it just once and you’ll be hooked. I make a point to have this just about every day.
