Cilantro/Coriander Chelation Pesto
Heavy-metal poisoning is rampant. It is a major cause of hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression food allergies, and parasites.
Cilantro -- also known as coriander or Chinese parsley -- has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. (The word chelate comes from the Greek word for claw, and describes a process which acts to engulf and then enable the removal of a highly reactive toxic mineral.)
Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, the following recipe for Cilantro Chelation Pesto is a powerful tissue cleanser. It is not only easy to make, but also really tasty. It's delicious on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta.
Two teaspoons of this cilantro pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies. Consider doing this cleanse for three weeks at least once a year.
a.. 4 cloves garlic
b.. 1/3 cup Brazil nuts (selenium source)
c.. 1/3 cup sunflower seeds (cysteine source)
d.. 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (zinc, magnesium sources)
e.. 2 cups packed fresh cilantro (coriander, Chinese parsley) (Vitamin A source)
f.. 2/3 cup flaxseed oil
g.. 4 tablespoons lemon juice (Vitamin C source)
h. Bragg's Liquid Aminos
Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender until the cilantro is chopped. Add the garlic, nuts, and seeds, dulse and lemon juice and mix until the mixture is finely blended into a paste. Add a squirt of Bragg's Liquid Aminos to taste and blend again. Store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last through the year.
