For centuries disease was caused by pathogens such as the plague and flu. Now days disease is caused by the way we live and eat!
Some of these environmental toxin-related diseases are cancer, auto-immune dysfunction, possibly autism, Alzheimer’s, nerve disorders, etc. Others which are probably inflammatory diseases such as depression, learning disabilities and fatigue are also toxin related. It can become relatively easy to overwhelm your body’s ability to remove many of these toxins when there are so many in the environment.
Symptoms of heave metal exposure, such as lead or mercury include:
- Feelings of stress, and being overwhelmed by information
- Aching joints
- Reproductive Issues
- Impaired blood sugar regulation
Mercury is also a dangerous toxin that can damage your central nervous system and kidneys . It is important to minimize your exposure as well as detoxify your body.
Chlorella To The Rescue
The detoxification of poisoning substances in the body is one of the important differences between chlorella and other “green” wholefoods. The detoxification of harmful materials also means stimulation of the liver functions. This detoxification of heavy metals and other chemical toxins in the blood can take 3 to 6 months to build up enough effect to begin this process depending on how much chlorella a person is taking. Chlorella is a food. As such, it is almost impossible to take too much chlorella.
Chlorella is comprised of a fibrous, indigestible outer shell and its inner central nutrients. It is the fibrous material which has been proven to actually bind with the heavy metals and pesticides to help drag them out of the body.
A clean bloodstream, with an abundance of red blood cells to carry oxygen, is necessary to a strong natural defense system. Chlorella’s cleansing action on the bowel and other elimination channels, as well as its protection of the liver, helps keep the blood clean. Clean blood insures that metabolic wastes are efficiently carried away from the tissues.
Chlorella side effects can be mistaken for mercury toxicity symptoms from Herxheimer effect during detox. But in many cases, headache, joint pain, brain fog etc. are caused by a cheap product that is poisoning you because it is contaminated! Natural news recommended Swanson’s Vitamins as a great source of excellent chlorella. Here is the link.
There are always some people who are sensitive to one food or another. WebMd has this to say about chlorella. The most common side effects include diarrhea, nausea, gas (flatulence), green discoloration of the stools, and stomach cramping, especially in the first week of use. Chlorella has been documented as having caused serious allergic reactions, including asthma and other dangerous breathing problems; though this is not common. Chlorella can cause skin to become extra sensitive to the sun. Wear sunblock outside, especially if you are light-skinned. Ideally you should take this with the recommendations and supervision of a Naturopathic or other Holistic physician.
