This is my favorite time of year — the sunshine, fresh produce, and warmth are definitely earth-based medicine for me. They also fuel my motivation to eat well and move my body joyfully. This spring I participated in a fitness challenge with five colleagues, and together we racked up over 14,500 minutes of exercise in 8 weeks. It felt so good to move again after feeling so sludgy all winter!
Also, last month I had the honor to meet with and be interviewed by Polly Tommey on the VAXXED bus. This courageous woman has dedicated her life to vaccine safety awareness after her son was injured by the MMR shot many years ago.
Heavy metals can wreak havoc on the body, from the nervous system to our joints to our gut and have been linked to such diseases as Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune diseases, and multiple sclerosis. They are found across the consumer spectrum in such products as anti-perspirants, all vaccines, amalgam fillings, batteries, jewely, airplane exhaust, cosmetics, light bulbs, factory emissions, some fish, chocolate, rice, medications, baked goods, ceramics, fungicides, cigarettes, and more.
In addition to clean living and eating, there are certain foods and supplements that can help with pulling heavy metals from the body slowly and gently and protect it from their toxic effects.
