Cilantro (Coriander) chelates and removes Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, and Aluminum from bones, the brain and the central nervous system. It is probably the only effective agent in mobilizing mercury stored in the intracellular space, and the nucleus of the cell. Excellent blood cleanser, tonic, and builder. Cleanses the lymphatic system. If you have had amalgam Mercury dental fillings, chelation can help prevent a wide variety of chronic neurological conditions, caused by slow leakage from the fillings such as brain fog, chronic headaches, dizziness, ringing in ears, fine tremors, allergies, fatigue, joint pain, and manic depression, to name a few. Yellow Dock (Rumex Crispus)has been added to aid in the assimilation of Cilantro, and to soothe the digestive tract. Cilantro works synergistically with Chlorella, and are often taken together for increased effectiveness.

(excerpts from Klinghardt Neurotoxin Elimination program)

This herb is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in the bones, brain, and the central nervous system. It is probably the only effective agent in mobilizing mercury stored in the intracellular space (attached to mitochondria, tubulin, liposomes etc) and in the nucleus of the cell (reversing DNA damage from mercury). Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins then it can carry out of the body, it may flood the connective tissue (where the nerves reside) with metals, that were previously stored in safer hiding places.

This process is called re-toxification. It can easily be avoided by simultaneously giving an intestinal toxin-absorbing agent. Our definite choice is the algae organism chlorella. A recent animal study demonstrated rapid removal of aluminum from the skeleton superior to any other known detox agent.

Application of cilantro tincture: give 2 drops 2 times per day in the beginning, taken just before a meal or 30 minutes after taking chlorella (cilantro causes the gallbladder to dump bile — containing the excreted neurotoxins — into the small intestine. The bile-release occurs naturally as we are eating and is much enhanced by cilantro. If no chlorella is taken, most neurotoxins are reabsorbed on the way down the small intestine by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system). Gradually increase dose to 10 drops 3 times/day for full benefit. During the initial phase of the detox cilantro should be given 1 week on, 2–3 weeks off.

Other ways of taking cilantro: rub 5 drops twice/day into ankles for mobilization of metals in all organs, joints and structures below the diaphragm, and into the wrists for organs, joints and structures above the diaphragm. The wrists have dense autonomic innervation (axonal uptake of cilantro) and are crossed by the main lymphatic channels (lymphatic uptake).

Detoxifies Heavy Metal (mercury from amalgamated fillings)

By Klaus Ferlow

Excerpt from The Botanical Review – a technical bulletin published by: The Institute of Quantum & Molecular Medicine:

Since Roman times cilantro has been used as food and medicine. A recent study by Dr. Yoshiaki Omura from the Heart Disease Research Foundation, New York, NY, USA (Acupuncture Electrotherapy Res. 96; 21 (2) 133-60 and Acupunct Eletrother Res. 1995 Aug-Dec. 20 (3-4) : 195-229 has discovered that the herb cilantro will detoxify mercury from neural tissue*., is used to help stimulate the appetite and relieves minor digestive irritation. This is a remarkable discovery. It is a novel technique, which greatly increased our ability to clear up recurring infections, both viral and bacterial. Bioactive Cilantro blend is an inexpensive, easy way to remove (or chelate) toxic metals from the nervous system and body tissues. Cilantro blend contains yellow dock to help drain the mercury from the connective tissues. It is an excellent blood cleanser, tonic, and builder, working through increasing the ability of the liver and related organs to strain and purify the blood and lymph system. Achieves it’s tonic properties through the astringent purification of the blood supply to the glands and acts as a cleansing herb for the lymphatic system. Do dental amalgam fillings contain toxic material?

Silver fillings are made up of five different metals, amalgamated together to form a solid mass which hardens in the mouth. The main ingredient in amalgam is mercury, which accounts for about 50 percent of the completed filling. The other ingredients are silver, copper, tin, zinc and occasionally nickel. Mercury vapors are released in the mouth in low level concentrations when fillings are subjected to the pressure and abrasion of chewing.

Actually, all of the elements comprising dental amalgam are toxic metals, but mercury is by far the most toxic. Sharma & Obersteiner established that mercury is more toxic than lead, cadmium, and even arsenic. Mercury has a very high absorption rate and is capable of entering the human body very rapidly and completely. Mercury vapor is fat soluble and neutral electrically. It has the ability to easily penetrate cell membranes and pass rapidly into the body from the blood into the body cells.

Systemic Effects of Mercury:

Neurological: Frequent or chronic headaches, dizziness, ringing or noises in the ears, fine tremors (hands, feet, lips, eyelids, and tongue).

Immunological: Allergies, rhinitis (inflammation of the nose), sinusitis, asthma, lymphaddenopathy (especially cervical or neck).

Endocrine: Subnormal temperatures, cold, clammy skin, especially hands and feet, excessive perspiration.

Other: Muscle weakness, fatigue, hypoxia (lack of oxygen), anorexia, joint pains, anemia, Edema (swelling), loss of weight.

Severe Cases: Hallucinations, manic depression.

Cilantro’s postulated mechanism of action is to act as a reducing agent changing the charge on the intracellular mercury to a neutral state allowing mercury to diffuse down it’s concentration gradient into connective tissue. This is called connective tissue mercury toxicity. The next step is to remove the mercury from the connective tissue. Mercury is preferentially attracted to the cell wall of the unicellular organism chorella. It can also be bound to sulfhydryl groups in garlic or to sulfur in the form of MSM. To get the mercury out, a cleansing of the liver, intestines, kidneys and lymph should be done. The clinical goal is to convert mercury into a state enabling it to be removed from the cells and be eliminated from the brain, connective tissues, lymph system, liver, gastrointestinal tract, and kidneys. Good News For Amalgam Sufferers:

Chelation therapy using chemicals like EDTA has long been used to help remove these heavy metals, but cilantro is a natural substance that is good news for people suffering from the ill effects of amalgam dental fillings. Dr. Omura recently performed another study in which three amalgams were 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 suctioning, 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. No mercury was detected in these tissues prior to the date of removal.

The active components in cilantro are fragile, and processing by heat will destroy the chelating agents. It is therefore recommended that it be taken in a liquid botanical preparation or raw, to get the most out of this remarkable herb. Indications and Usage:

Metal toxicity , mercury amalgam toxicity, immune disorders, premature aging, cardiovascular disease, allergies, Alzheimer’s, gastrointestinal disorders, psychological disorders, asthma, cancer, chronic fatigue, endocrine disorders and gingivitis.
