It’s been several months now since I started my fluoride detox. Progress feels slow at times, but I know real healing takes time.
In my last update, I wrote about how I successfully avoided another fluoroderma outbreak even while spending a full week in Fluorideville. This month I wasn’t as lucky. After eating a couple questionable meals while traveling (such as lamb with orzo, even though I tried to avoid the orzo), I developed a few small breakouts along my lower jawline on both sides of my mouth.
All the breakouts are located along the line that leads from the corner of my nose to the corner of my lips and down the sides of my neck. The area along this line is the first place I break out when I consume foods that contain fluoride.
When I’m not traveling, I try to push through with my fluoride detox efforts by consuming homemade bone broth on a daily basis. I also take Dr. Ron’s mineral supplement, although I am starting to think the boron in the supplement is what is making me feel queasy on the metro in the morning. The bone broth feels like a more gentle way to detox, although I still experience the persistent abdominal bloating if I drink it for several days in a row.
When I need a break from the bloating, I stop drinking broth and I stop taking the mineral supplement. My body usually goes back to normal in a couple days. But this last time around, the bloating continued to get worse. I was eating my normal diet, except for one dish.
Sometimes for work, I will make a large taco-less taco salad and eat it for lunch all week. I love the spicy ground beef with shredded cheese, sour cream, and tomatoes. But this particular week, I tried something different. Inspired by the book on herbs I am reading, Healing Wise by Susun Weed, I made my salad with dandelion greens instead of the red leaf lettuce I normally buy. I also threw in a bunch of fresh cilantro since I read it was good for eliminating toxins.
Could it be the cilantro was continuing the flood of fluoride that was being released in my body?
A search for cilantro and fluoride brings back a multitude of articles on cilantro’s detoxifying abilities. This article in Natural News recommends cilantro as a way to release forms of fluoride that are derived from synthetic waste products, such as sodium fluoride. In this lecture from a Swiss researcher at the University of Geneva, the author notes that:
“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 place.”
So instead of taking a break from the fluoride detox, it is possible that my system became more congested with fluoride as it was being displaced from my bones and other areas.
This fluoride detox is definitely a learning process. I am looking forward to the day it is over!
Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
