Cilantro – A Natural Herbal Chelator

Posted on Sep 5, 2008 in Heavy Metals

Cilantro (also called Chinese parsley) helps to flush out heavy metals according to the research of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura. The leaves of the coriander plant can accelerate the urinary excretion of lead, mercury and aluminum from the human body. This is a remarkable discovery. It is an inexpensive, effective and easy
way to remove or chelate toxic metals form the nervous system and body tissues.

Chelation therapy using chemicals like EDTA has long been used to help remove these heavy metals, but cilantro is a natural substance that has been demonstrated to have this ability. This will be helpful for removal of the ill effects of silver amalgam dental fillings, which contain mercury.

The active components in cilantro are easily destroyed during processing. For this reason, it’s recommended to stick to the fresh herb. It can be eaten raw in soup or salad, on tacos or as a garnish with practically any dish. Or eat a couple of teaspoons of cilantro pesto a day for two or three weeks at least once or twice
a year.
