Detox once or twice a year. Use a comprehensive program designed to do three things: release toxins from their storage sites; support the liver in changing them into compounds we can more easily excrete; and eliminate them from the body. This can be accomplished with a diet low in sweets and starches, regular exercise, stress management, good sleep, sauna therapy and supplements that deliver the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids needed for detoxification.

Chelation Therapy: is one of the best ways to detox and remove heavy metals from your cells and tissues. But, it can also be dangerous, so many doctors don’t recommend it unless you have moderate to severe heavy metal poisoning. Chelation therapy uses compounds called chelators that form strong bonds with heavy metals, leaving them unable to further poison your body. Chelators mobilize the toxins, and you can either pass them normally or bind them up with adsorbents like activated charcoal. Chelation therapy is very effective for removing lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic, iron, and copper.
