What do you do to detox and cleanse?
Various things. If I am in a situation where I can recognize an acute exposure, I will take a dose of alka seltzer gold immediately. That's the one without asprin in it. Basically these exposures make my body go acidic and the alka gold is an immediate alkaline dose. Sometimes that helps, but sometimes nothing helps. Just depends on what I am exposed to. But I really don't like having to take that because of all the sodium. So I increase magnesium on days when I have had to use the alka gold.
Also, I have incorporated gobo root (burdock) and nettles into my diet, and seaweeds as well. I take chlorella too. It's a long process.
Also do skin brushing and have a filter on my shower/tub, to filter the chemicals out of that water.
Have had serious tooth and gum problems, but I have upped my CoQ10 doasge and am using a better olive leaf extract and those two supplements seem to have gotten that under control. I am told that formaldehyde exposures cause this type of problem. The formaldehyde accumulates there, or so I have been told.
For the nausea I take ginger root. I peel the roots and cut into very small pieces, small enough to put under my toungue. And leave in vodka or sherry, in the fridge. Sometimes I eat crystalized ginger as well.
My digestive system was really messed up for a while, but have been using plain raw honey as digestive enzyme, and it really does help, as does the seaweed. High protein diet helps also. For some reason that I cannot remember at this time, ei's cannot survive well as vegetarians. It might be due to some other enzyme thing, but I can't remember for sure right now. Also dandelions have helped with this.
Also I have eliiminated all processed foods. And after I had done that, I started losing weight, not even trying to lose weight. Of course, my ei doc says that my thyroid plays a part in the weight also. It swings back and forth between hyper and hypo, but have not had it tested in a year or so. There are sooo many endocrine disruptors in common products, that I have to be really careful about just about everything we bring into our home.
I had tried bentonite clay, but it made me nauseated and so I gave it to a friend who has good results using it.
Oh, yeah, also we have a couple of water distillers and I use the cleaned water for cooking as well as drinking. But I do add back minerals because distilled water has none in it. I drink a lot of water.
But the past 4-5 months have been really difficult, been ill a lot. Breathing probs, burning eyes, headaches and skin rashes. In conversation with other chemically injured folks, we think that the chemtrails are at the very least, partly to blame for this. I cannot remember not one single day that our skys are not filled with those nasty things. I have to stay inside, most of the time when they are above head. Even when I escape this city and go into the mountains north of here, the chemtrails are still in the skys above me. No place to run and no place to hide. We are constantly assaulted from above by those things. I cannot remember the last time when we had a full 24 hours without the chemtrails in our skys. Sometimes I make a poltice from violet leaves to put on my eyelids and it really does help.
We have a couple of HEPA filters in here and have also put a 6" thick filter on our furnace/AC. So the air in the house is relatively clean. But I do not open windows a lot because of the chemtrails. They suck. We had our windows replaced also, as the old ones were the old style jalouse windows and they let all kinds of bad air into here.
Susun's books have been very helpful also. Some of the stuff mantioned above, I learned to do from reading them.
Avoidance of the things that are known to make me ill is the best thing I can do, especially after recovering from tox out condition. It's a total body load thing.
2-3 years ago we moved to a better neighborhood, houses farther apart, and we have lots of wonderful trees here. In summer, when the trees have their leaves on, the air outside is much more tolerable for me. They filter the nasty laundry chemicals that permeate the air. Those chemicals in laundry products really make me sick. Are filled with neurotoxins and carcinogenic compounds. Sometimes I try to talk with the neighbors about it, and they do seen very interested at the time, but then they just continue on using those poisons. If they could confine their fumes to their own space, that would not be a problem, But they go everywhere and I consider it toxic trespass when they waft over into our yard and airspace.
There's no pesticide registry here in Georgia that I am aware of, and so if any neighbors are ignorant enough to use chemlawn, I gotta stay inside for days.
Also I wear various respirators when I go outside. But not always because human that I am, some days I don't like to think I am different, so restricted.
We would move (again), but my partner has to stay in this town for career reasons. Retirement is not too far in the future, and we do discuss moving to a much more rural area. But if we do that, the variety organic foods we have access to here will be harder to come by.
Do you have any suggestions for other detox foods/herbs/protocols?
