I've been diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity recently and I was wondering which supplements/foods/practices are the best for detoxifying the body?

So your doctor didn't say anything about heavy metals... and yet you're concerned... uhhh... what?

I've been taking regular green clay, because I can't seem to find bentonite clay in my neighborhood. Do you think green clay is sufficient?

I'm definitely not in an optimal micronutrient state, because of my weak small intestine. Supplementing with vitamin D3, teaspoon of cod liver oil, all the B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese and vitamin c.

He diagnosed me with gluten intolerance, and said if I strictly avoid gluten, my small intestine and liver will heal again (currently also taking L-glutamine et cetera). I've barely been eating gluten at all for the couple of last years, and I suspect I've got SIBO going on in my small intestine. I'm quite anxious about the heavy metals in my body, because my father got MS at my age, and died from it. I really don't want to experience the same.

you need to look into orthomolecular nutrition/therapy. you will need to make sure you are getting the correct nutrients that will help drive out and replace the toxins in your system.

If you were diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity by a doctor, you'd be on some sort of chelation therapy. Other than that, I'd figure out where you're getting your toxic load from and eliminating that. Nothing more is really necessary, eat healthily, the human body can detoxify itself when well fed.

You might be able to chelate out the heavy metals with IP-6, a.k.a inositol hexaphosphate, a.k.a. teh ebil phytate anti-nutrient. It's available as a supplement; the best value will probably be the IP-6 powder from Source Naturals. Keep in mind that IP-6 is not something you'd want to take routinely in the long term.

I've been taking Chlorella, Vitamin C -among other things. Also sweating in the sauna, drinking lots of clean water and eating good veggies- especially certain leafy greens have been very helpful.

You could try bentonite clay. I don't have personal experience with it but you might look into it and see if you feel it is worth giving it a try.

ZeoLite powder, the only proven product today to remove heavy metals.

May I ask what is the cause ? is it a high fish diet ?
