Getting rid of heavy metals from our body is a tedious process that requires a lot of time and effort. The most common method of metal detoxification is by drawing out heavy metals through chelation therapy. Used by conventional and alternative doctors, chelation therapy can be done orally or intravenously to eliminate toxic metals through fecal waste and/or urine.
Some doctors may prescribed the following medications to support the body in the detoxification process:
- Calcium EDTA
- DMSA (Succimer)
These medication might trigger side effects, depending on your body’s coping mechanism. For individuals with high sensitivity to the above medication, they can always opt to natural alternatives such as clay detox. Bentonite clay is one of the most inexpensive yet effective natural treatments available. Harvested in the deposits near Fort Benton, Wyoming, this aged-volcanic clay has been used as a detoxification tool and healing ingredient in treating medical conditions since pre-historic era. Up until now, many people—and even celebrities—are trying this nature’s wonder.
Also known as the detoxifying clay, bentonite clay contains a strong negative charge that can flush out positively charged toxins, heavy metals, and other impurities in our body. Enriched with various trace elements such as magnesium, potassium, sodium, iodine, it can also be taken internally as a food supplement or mineral replacement for both humans and animals.
