A young man of 23 wrote and told me he has been studying health, nutrition and fitness since age 16. He also said he’s a huge fan of my work on magnesium. Then he asked my opinion on detoxification, which he found confusing, and whether I thought it was necessary for everyone.
Good question. I think everyone can benefit from detoxification and the EWG’s research is the reason why.
The Environmental Working Group, in partnership with Rachel’s Network, commissioned five laboratories in the U.S., Canada, and Europe to analyze umbilical cord blood collected from 10 infants born in 2007 and 2008. Collectively, the laboratories identified up to 232 different industrial compounds and pollutants in these babies, finding complex mixtures of compounds in each infant.
This research demonstrates that industrial chemicals cross the placenta in large numbers to contaminate a baby even before the moment of birth. That’s why I recommend detoxification for everyone.
For reasons of safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness, I recommend magnesium and clay detox baths.
1. Magnesium will help dissolve the calcium in your arteries and tissues putting it back into circulation and excreting the excess. Magnesium is the ultimate chelating agent. Go to my Resources Page to find my magnesium recommendations.
2. Clay Detox Baths may seem very simplistic. But think about it. Every pore on your skin is in contact with the clay in your bath. And clay absorbs toxins from your body through your skin. Clay can remove heavy metals, chemicals and drugs.
I use the Natural Clay formula from LL’s Magnetic Clay. Just blend 1/4 to 1/2 cup of clay in your blender with lots of water and pour that into your hot water foot bath or tub. Soak for 30 min and shower off. Do a bath or footbath at least three times a week, more if you have time.
I talk about these detox factors in Future Health Now! If you’re not yet a member, do your own research and be sure and choose a safe way to detox as part of your future health.
