Natural Way To Remove Heavy Metal

Updated: Nov 22, 2022

Heavy metals are elements that are naturally found in the earth. They’re used in many modern-day applications, such as agriculture, medicine, and industry. Your body even naturally contains some. Zinc, iron, and copper, for example, are necessary for regular body function, as long as they aren’t present in toxic amounts. Heavy metal poisoning occurs when your body’s soft tissues absorb too much of a particular metal.

Why detox?

Heavy metals can take a massive toll on your body, health and well-being. Heavy metals first enter your bloodstream when exposed to farmed fish, environmental pollutants, tattoos, certain vaccinations, contaminated water, dental fillings and household products. Heavy metals such as mercury, nickel, uranium, cadmium, lead and aluminium, are able to imbed themselves into our central nervous systems and bones, accumulating for years and can slow you down mentally and physically. They are suspected of triggering dangerous conditions like heart disease, thyroid problems, dementia, neurological conditions, Alzheimer’s, depression, anaemia, autism, infertility and birth defects. Heavy metal detox can remove these toxins from your body and minimize their impact on your health.


The most common way to remove toxins from the body is through chelation. Chelation therapy is a medical procedure that involves chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body by binding to heavy metal toxin ions and allowing them to be dissolved and excreted in the urine.


Cilantro is best used in conjunction with chlorella, which is a kind of green algae and together they act as s perfect tool for body detoxification. The leaves of the cilantro plant have potent anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antifungal, antimicrobial and significant chelating properties, that bind to heavy metals that are removed from the body through our excretory system. Chlorella with cilantro needs to be taken 3 times a day for up to 3 months. According to various studies that heavy metal chelation using cilantro and chlorella can naturally remove an average of 87% of lead, 91% of mercury, and 74% of aluminium from the body within 45 days. The natural way to chelate is to juice cilantro and chlorella.

Recipe for detox juice: Cilantro and Chlorella

The juice is mainly organic cilantro, but I add one organic celery stalk and one or two carrots to make it more palatable. John Gildea put me on to this juice based on a study from The Optimal Wellness Test Research Center in Nevada in 2005. In the study, participants took both cilantro and chlorella (a type of green algae) three times a day for up to three months (this is a high chelating dose) to remove up to “87% of lead, 91% of mercury, and 74% of aluminium from the body within 42 days." I use the NOW brand of chlorella and take two grams with the juice from one bunch of cilantro.

How often should you do a heavy metal detox?

Do it once a year but before you do the detox, do a bioresonance scan or a blood test to determine if there's heavy metal in your system, if yes, then do the detox. All detox of heavy metals needs care due to the possible side effects. So if you want to do a detox, consult a therapist. At 360 Wellness Hub, we check if you have heavy metal before recommending a detox. Call or Text 0123300415 to check and for our detox recommendation.
