Heavy metals, including mercury, cause havoc in various bodily systems. Regularly decreasing the toxic burden on the body is a positive move toward greater health. There are now many products and protocols available for doing this. I and my clients have used several with good results. My favorite, however, is a product called HMD (Heavy Metal Detox) which is backed by a 3 year double-blind placebo study. You can read about this liquid chelator HERE . And by the way, Iris Herbal Products sells this 4 oz. tincture cheaper than Amazon. At present, you need to call toll-free 877-286-2970 to order it.
Thinking about mercury pollution as we in the Southwest are experiencing a massive drought, and a big chunk of the country is dealing with record-breaking high temps, and the Tea Party wing of the radical right is explaining how they intend to shut down the EPA (after they successfully played “Chicken” with the national debt), I am led to my strength and curse: seeing clearly the Big Picture. So here are a few “exposes” that have crossed my computer desk today that eloquently describe in part or in whole our current “reality.”
For those who wish to confront their fears about environmental decline and how to adequately address the current situation of global warming, here is an article from AlterNet that is sobering in that it gets real about power, corporate control (of everything), privilege (of those of us living in industrialized states), and what has worked (and not worked) in social change movements.
If you don’t believe the corporate greed machine is really that insidious, then check out this wonderfully scathing indictment of the Supreme Court by Hightower, that can be read here.
Oh no, you say, we have freedom of the press, look at all you’ve shown us courtesy of the alternative media…and that is my point. Mainstream media (except National Geographic and a few other bolder entities) is not giving us important news about anything alternative unless it has already been co-opted by a multinational. Here is an article about the recent intergovernmental raid against a buying club that dared to sell raw milk.
Next week I’ll start exploring the many and fascinating alternative views to Type II Diabetes and its treatment and prevention.
