Detox from Heavy Metals and
We hear a lot about pollution and the diseases that
are caused by toxic chemicals and metals. If the dangers seem
overblown, imagine a region populated by about two million people
that is devastated by an explosion and meltdown at a nearby nuclear
power plant. Mobilizing the military and evacuating hundreds
of thousands of residents, the emergency cleanup effort involves
nearly 750,000 soldiers and firemen.
While this sounds like a disaster movie, it is
recent history. This actually happened on April 26, 1986 in
Chernobyl, Ukraine. Of those many emergency workers, over half
are now dead, and over 250,000 more are dying from various types of
This epic human tragedy led the Soviet society on a
desperate search for ways to detoxify and protect their people from
radiation poisoning. This search has brought many medicines to
our markets, some of which are described here. These can also
help the body detoxify from many diseases other than radiation
poisoning. Heaven forbid that we will need them to save lives
in any other nuclear catastrophes.
Unfortunately, the dangers of chemical and heavy
metal pollution -- including radioactive munitions that will affect
all who have handled them or who live where they have been used.
These are not becoming any less important to your family's health.
Quite the contrary.

Normal Elimination of Toxins
Treating Other Degenerative Diseases through Systemic
Toxic chemicals and pollutants get into our bodies
all the time. For example, many of us have dental fillings of
mercury amalgam that were considered harmless when they were put in.
Now we know better.
The body eliminates toxins naturally all the time
through the kidneys and the colon. But many toxins imitate
nutritional minerals and hormones and get into the cell walls, bones
and ligaments. Some toxins can even fit into hormone receptor
sites on cell surfaces. When this happens, normal elimination
doesn't work efficiently and the healthy functions of these tissues
As toxic poisoning increases, tissues and cells stop
functioning well. As these toxins are released and being
eliminated, they can be taken up again through the kidneys or colon.
This is the reason why cleansing systems usually include some fiber
or absorbent material like clay or charcoal to hang onto the debris
until it gets completely out of the body.
Responding to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant
disaster, Soviet scientists found a remarkable plant medicine that
would grab onto heavy metals and radioactive minerals while
protecting the thyroid metabolism and gastrointestinal tract.

A well-regarded detoxifier of the cardiovascular
sublingual EDTA. Chelation therapy is well-respected,
but news here is that by taking EDTA under the tongue and holding it
there for a few minutes, more of it gets absorbed into the blood
than if it is taken as an oral pill or suppository. Sublingual
absorption of EDTA is not as effective as an intravenous (IV) drip,
but approximately 50-60 percent of this EDTA gets into the blood
through the mucous membranes of the mouth.
The benefits in terms of cost and convenience of
sublingual EDTA are significant. The standard protocol for
certified IV chelation therapy consists of three sessions, each of
which takes about three hours every week. This puts about 9
grams of EDTA into the bloodstream per week. A typical
cardiovascular repair strategy is to have three sessions a week for
2-3 months. This costs between $260-320 USD and takes over 9
hours in your doctor's office each week. Even at that cost and
fuss, this therapy is far safer and more affordable than most
emergency heart operations.
If you are being advised to have heart surgery, be
sure to get an alternate opinion on chelation therapy. For
those who can't afford the time and money of IV chelation but who do
value its preventive medical benefits, consider a simple scoop of
this powder held under the tongue twice a day. That 14 grams a
week gets 8-1/2 grams of EDTA into your bloodstream, at a fraction
of the cost of IV chelation therapy.

For anyone having onboard toxic metals from whatever
source, or having the symptoms of damage from toxic chemicals or
metals, we recommend a steady course of both Modifilan and
sublingual EDTA for a few months, followed by medical re-testing to
assess the benefits. Older persons or those who have had
significant exposure may need several courses of detoxification to
effectively reduce their toxic loads.
For most who have grown up in this modern world,
body chemistry reveals levels of pollutants and poisons that no one
yet has the scientific proof to know whether it is bad or dangerous.
Undergoing a chelation and detoxification process for several months
each year is like insurance against degenerative diseases and rapid
aging that are often in the cards for us. And since little
risk in using these materials, it hardly makes sense to wait for
proper scientific validation of these approaches in today's toxic
Beneficial bacteria have been proven to fight
disease and supply many nutrients necessary for health.
Probiotics have proven to be invaluable at restoring an optimal
biological flora inside the body. Many fermented foods can
contribute to this effort, but
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotic is Japan's premier award-winning

gastrointestinal tract with beneficial bacteria that have been
cultured for their strength and durability.
