Man's Chelation Therapy
nothing I like more than learning about inexpensive, common herbs or spices
that exhibit unusual healing properties.
the use of herbs and spices in cooking evolved as a method to preserve foods
and make them safer to store and eat. While we've grown accustomed to using
these items to enhanced or accentuate flavors of food, researchers continue to
discover that they have much more to offer than just good taste. A recent
example involves the work of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura.
recently informed us that he discovered almost by accident, that the leaves of
the coriander plant can accelerate the excretion of mercury, lead, and
aluminum from the body.
He had been
treating several patients for an eye infection called trachoma (granular
conjunctivitis), which is caused by the micro-organism Chlamydia trachomatis.
Following the standard treatment with antibiotics. Dr. Omura found that the
patients' symptoms would clear up initially, then recur within a few months.
He experienced similar difficulties in treating viral related problems like
Herpes Simplex types I & II and Cytomegalovirus infection.
Helps Flush Out Heavy Metals
a closer look, Dr. Omura found those organisms seemed to hide and flourish in
the area of the body where there were concentrations of heavy metals like
mercury, lead and aluminum. Somehow the organisms were able to use the toxic
metals to protect themselves from the antibiotics.
It just so
happens that while he was testing for those metals, Dr. Omura noticed the
mercury level in the urine increased after one consumed a healthy serving of
Vietnamese soup. The soup contains Chinese Parsley, or as it is better known
in this country, Cilantro. (Some of you may also know it's a Coriander, since
it comes from the leaves of the
testing revealed that eating cilantro also increased urinary excretion of lead
and aluminum. And when cilantro was used concurrently with antibiotics or
natural anti-viral agents and/or fatty acids like EPA with D.A., the above
infection could be eliminated for good. (Acupnct Electrother Res. 95:20 (3-4):
195-229.) Dr. Omura has made a remarkable discovery. He's found a novel
technique which greatly increases our ability to clear up recurring infections
both viral and bacterial. And perhaps more exciting, he's discovered an
inexpensive, easy way to remove (or "chelate") toxic metals from the nervous
system and body tissue -- one that anybody can use.
This is Great
News for Amalgam Sufferers
therapy using chemicals like EDTA has long been used to help remove these
heavy metals, but cilantro is the only natural substance I'm aware of that has
demonstrated this ability. This will become news for people suffering from
effect of amalgam dental fillings, which contains
recently performed another study in which three amalgam fillings where removed
from an individual using all of the precautions available to prevent
absorption of the mercury from the amalgam. Even with strong air and water
suction, water rinses, and a rubber dental dam, significant amounts of mercury
were later found in the individual's lungs, kidneys, endocrine organs, liver,
and heart. There was no mercury in these tissues prior to the amalgam removal.
without the help of any Chelation agents, cilantro
was able to
remove the mercury in two to three weeks. (Acupunct Electrother Res 96;21(2):
133-60.) Since some of the patients didn't like the taste of fresh cilantro,
Dr. Omura had a pharmaceutical company create a 100 mg cilantro tablet. In the
above dental study, one tablet was taken four times a day.
As of yet, I
haven't been able to find a tested commercial tablet of cilantro.
believed that the active component in cilantro are easily
during processing. For this reason, I recommend
fresh herb. It can be eaten raw in soup or salad, on
tacos, or as
garnish with practically any dish.
Cilantro Pesto (Make That "Chelation Pesto")
I would think
it should also work if the cilantro were juiced, but
easiest and tastiest way to use the herb would be as the main ingredient in a
home made pesto sauce. You can start with the basic recipe below and add other
nuts and spices to suit your taste.
clove of garlic 1/2 cup of almonds, cashews, or other nuts
2) 1 cup
packed fresh cilantro leaves 2 tablespoons lemon juice
tablespoons olive oil
Put the cilantro and olive oil in blender and process until the cilantro is

need to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the blender.) You can
change the consistency by altering the amount of olive oil and lemon juice,
but keep the 3:1 ratio of oil to juice. (It freezes well, so you can make
several batches at once.)
In light of
the ever-worsening quality of our water and soil and
widespread use of metals in every day items like deodorant and cans, I would
seriously suspect that all of us have some toxic metals in our body. And
unless they are carried out by a chelating agent, things like lead, aluminum
remain in the body forever.
associated with arthritic condition, depression, muscle pain and weakness,
memory loss and deterioration, and maybe even Alzheimer's disease.
and Cilantro is readily available across the country. It is very popular herb
in Mexican cooking, and due to their large Mexican populations is easy to
find anywhere from Texas to California. In other areas, you may need to visit
an Oriental market or specialty supermarket, (Remember, it's also called
Chinese Parsley.) I would highly recommend that you take advantage of this
"poor man's Chelation treatment".
All it takes
is adding fresh Cilantro to your everyday foods or eating a couple teaspoons
of cilantro pesto a day for two or three weeks; either will give the dose Dr.
Omura used in his research.
