(NaturalNews) You can rid you body of most fluorides with some easy
natural remedies. Fluorides have been linked to a variety of severe
chronic, even acute health issues. First a quick review summary of
Fluoride is a soluble salt, not a heavy metal. There are two basic types of fluoride. Calcium fluoride
appears naturally in underground water sources and even seawater.
Enough of it can cause skeletal or dental fluorosis, which weakens bone
and dental matter. But it is not nearly as toxic, nor does it negatively
affect so many other health issues as sodium fluoride, which is added to many water supplies.
Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, and
phosphate fertilizer industries. This fluoride has an amazing capacity
to combine and increase the potency of other toxic materials. The sodium
fluoride obtained from industrial waste and added to water supplies is
also already contaminated with lead, aluminum, and cadmium.
damages the liver and kidneys, weakens the immune system, possibly
leading to cancer, creates symptoms that mimic fibromyalgia, and
performs as a Trojan Horse to carry aluminum across the blood brain
barrier. The latter is recognized as a source of the notorious "dumbing
down" with lower IQ's and Alzheimer's effects of fluoride.
not commonly known organ victim of fluorosis is the pineal gland,
located in the middle of the brain. The pineal gland can become
calcified from fluorides,
inhibiting it's function as a melatonin producer. Melatonin is needed
for sound, deep sleep, and the lack of it also contributes to thyroid
problems that affect the entire endocrine system. The pineal gland is
also considered the physical link to the upper chakras or third eye for
spiritual and intuitive openings.
Various permutations of Sodium
Fluoride are also in many insecticides for homes and pesticides for
crops. Sometimes it is even added to baby foods and bottled waters. If
you live in a water
fluoridated area, purchase commercially grown fruits, especially grapes,
and vegetables that are chemically sprayed and grown areas irrigated by
fluoridated water, you are getting a triple whammy! Better skip that
Avoiding Fluoride Contamination
always, the first step in detoxifying is to curb taking in toxins.
Purifying water by reverse osmosis or distillation in fluoridated water
communities is a good start to slowing down your fluoride
contamination. Distillation comes with a bit of controversy, as all the
minerals are removed. A great mineral supplement such as Fulvic Acid
(not folic acid) or unsulfured blackstrap molasses is recommended if you
distill your water.
Avoiding sprayed, commercially grown foods
while consuming organic or locally grown foods is another big step.
Watch out for processed foods such as instant tea, grape juice products,
and soy milk for babies. They all contain high concentrations of sodium
fluoride. So do many pharmaceutical "medicines". By minimizing your
sodium fluoride intake, your body can begin eliminating the fluorides in
your system slowly.
Magnesium is a very important mineral that
many are lacking. Besides being so important in the metabolism and
synthesis of nutrients within your cells, it also inhibits the
absorption of fluoride into your cells! Along with magnesium, calcium
seems to help attract the fluorides away from your bones and teeth,
allowing your body to eliminate those toxins. So during any detox
efforts with fluoride, it is essential that you include a healthy
supplemental dose of absorbable calcium/magnesium as part of the

author received a comment stating that an earlier article's source
reference to sunlight for decalcifying the pineal gland was inaccurate.
He said that darkness, not light, is needed to stimulate the pineal
gland into melatonin production, which should lead to breaking up the
calcification of that gland. Besides being logical, further source
research indicates the critic is correct!
Day time exercise, a
healthful diet, not over eating, and meditation all contribute to higher
melatonin production from the pineal gland. Though very helpful to many
for getting a full night's deep sleep, it appears inconclusive whether
melatonin supplements will help decalcify the pineal gland. But it does
seem logical that it might.
Iodine supplementation has
been clinically demonstrated to increase the urine irrigation of sodium
fluoride from the body as calcium fluoride. The calcium is robbed from
your body, so make sure you are taking effective calcium and magnesium
supplements. Lecithin is recommended as an adjunct to using iodine for excreting fluorides.
is another nutrient lacking in most diets and causing hypothyroid
symptoms of lethargy or metabolic imbalances. Eating lots of seafood for
iodine has it's constantly rising mercury hazards. Seaweed foods and iodine supplements that combine iodine and potassium iodide are highly recommended over sea food by most.
originally indigenous to Africa but migrated into India and southeast
Asia, has been used medicinally in Ayurvedic Medicine. The pulp, bark,
and leaves from the tree can be converted to teas and strong tinctures,
which have also shown the ability to eliminate fluorides through the
Liver Cleanses are considered effective for
eliminating fluorides and other toxins. There are two types of liver
cleansing, both of which can be performed easily at home over a week or
two of time. One of the protocols focuses on the liver itself , and the
other cleanses the gall bladder, which is directly connected with liver
functions. Simple instructions for both can be found on line with search
Boron was studied in other parts of the
world with pronounced success for fluoride detoxification. Borox, which
contains boron, has a history of anecdotal success for detoxifying
sodium fluoride. Yes, this is the borox you can find in the laundry
aisles of some supermarkets. It needs to be taken in with pure water in
As little as 1/32 of a teaspoon to 1/4 of a
teaspoon in one liter of water consumed in small quantities throughout
the day is what has been demonstrated as safe and effective. Around 1/8
of a teaspoon with a pinch of pure sea salt
in a liter consumed in small quantities daily has been reported to have
dramatic results. There is the possibility of a food grade version with
sodium borate, if you can find it.
Dry Saunas combined
with exercise releases sodium fluoride stored in fatty tissues. It can
be intense enough to cause side effects or an occasional healing crisis.
So keep the pure water intake high and drink some chickweed tea to
protect the kidneys while using a highly absorbable cal/mag supplement.
Lecithin is another useful adjunct to this protocol for fluoride
Those Adjuncts to the Listed Remedies
C in abundance was not mentioned as a helpful adjunct. It is now. But
do not use ascorbic acid as your vitamin C source for an adjunct to any
of the fluoride detox methods. Do take in as much other types of vitamin
C as you can tolerate, along with a couple of tablespoons of lecithin
daily. Add those to your absorbable calcium and magnesium supplements
with plenty of pure water, get good sleep and rest, and the detox should
be relatively smooth.
Chelation therapies are recommended
primarily for heavy metal removals. Though fluorides are salts, the
synthetic waste product variety, sodium fluoride, comes with a cargo of
toxic heavy metals. And these pernicious salts have a way of combining
more heavy metals. So including any one of several chelation therapies
may be beneficial for overall health improvements while applying your
chosen fluoride remedy or remedies.
Those include bentonite clay internally or externally, fulvic acid (NOT folic acid), cilantro pesto with chlorella, and even DMSA or any other chellation therapy with which you are familiar.
