Title: The Poor Man's Chelation Therapy
There's nothing I like more than learning about inexpensive, common herbs or
spices that exhibit unusual healing properties. Historically, the use of
herbs and spices in cooking evolved as a method to preserve foods and make
them safer to store and eat. While we've grown accustomed to using these
items to enhanced or accentuate flavors of food, researchers continue to
discover that they have much more to offer than just good taste. A recent
example involves the work of Dr. Yoshiaki Omura.
Dr. Omura recently informed us that he discovered almost by accident, that
the leaves of the coriander plant could accelerate the excretion of mercury,
lead and aluminum from the body. He had been treating several patients for
an eye infection called trachoma (granular conjunctivitis), which is caused
by the microorganism Chlamydia trachomatis. Following the standard treatment
with antibiotics. Dr. Omura found that the patients' symptoms would clear up
initially, then recur within a few months. He experienced similar
difficulties in treating viral related problems like Herpes Simplex types I
II and Cytomegalovirus infection.
Cilantro Helps Flush Out Heavy Metals
After taking a closer look, Dr. Omura found those organisms seemed to hide
and flourish in area of the body where there were concentrations of heavy
metals like mercury, lead and aluminum. Somehow the organisms were able to
use the toxic metals to protect themselves from the antibiotics.
It just so happens that while he was testing for those metals, Dr. Omura
noticed the mercury level in the urine increased after one consumed a
healthy serving of Vietnamese soup. The soup contains Chinese parsley, or it
is better known in this country, cilantro. (Some of you may also know it as
coriander, since it comes form the leaves of the coriander plant.)
Further testing revealed that eating cilantro also increased urinary
excretion of lead and aluminum. And when cilantro was used concurrently with
antibiotics or natural anti-viral agents and/ or fatty acids like
EPA with D.A., the above infection could be eliminated for good.
(Acupnct Electrother Res. 95:20 (3-4): 195-229.)
Dr. Omura has made a remarkable discovery. He's found a novel technique,
which greatly increases our ability to clear up recurring infections both
viral and bacterial. And perhaps more exciting, he's discovered an
inexpensive, easy way to remove (or "chelate") toxic metals from the nervous
system and body tissue - one that anybody can use.
This is Great News for Amalgam Sufferers
Chelation therapy using chemicals like EDTA has long been used to help
remove these heavy metals, but cilantro is the only natural substance
I'M aware of that has demonstrated this ability. This will become news for
people suffering from the ill effect of amalgam dental fillings, which
contains approximately 50% mercury.
Dr. Omura recently performed another study in which three amalgam filling
where removed from an individual using all of the precautions available to
prevent absorption of the mercury from the amalgam. Even with strong air and
water suction, water rinses, and a rubber dental dam, significant amounts of
mercury were later found in the individual's lungs, kidneys, endocrine
organs, liver and heart. There was no mercury in these tissue prior to the
Remarkably, without the help of any chelation agents, cilantro was able to
remove the mercury in two to three weeks.
(Acupunct Electrother Res 96;21 (2): 133-60.)
Since some of the patients didn't like the taste of fresh cilantro, Dr.
Omura had a pharmaceutical company create a 100 mg cilantro tablet. In the
above dental study, one tablet was taken four times a day. As of yet, I
haven't been able to find a tested commercial tablet of cilantro.
It is believed that the active component in cilantro is easily destroyed
during processing. For this reason, I recommend sticking to fresh herb. It
can be eaten raw in soup or salad, on tacos, or as garnish with practically
Recipe for Cilantro Pesto (Make That "Chelation Pesto")
I would think it should also work if the cilantro were juiced, but perhaps
the easiest and tastiest way to use the herb would be as the main ingredient
in a home made pesto sauce. You can start with the basic recipe below and
add other nuts and spices to suite your taste.
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup of almonds, cashews, or other nuts
1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
6 tablespoons olive oil
Put the cilantro and olive oil in blender and process until the cilantro
is chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and process to a lumpy paste.
(You may need to add a touch of hot water and scrape the sides of the
blender.) You can change the consistency by altering the amount of olive oil
and lemon juice, but keep the 3:1 ratio of oil to juice. (It freezes well,
so you can make several batches at once.)
In light of the ever-worsening quality of our water and soil and the
widespread use of metals in everyday items like deodorant and cans, I would
seriously suspect that all of us have some toxic metals in our body. And
unless they are carried out by a chelating agent, things like lead, aluminum
and mercury remain in the body forever. Besides associated with arthritic
condition, depression, muscle pain and weakness, memory loss and
deterioration, and maybe even Alzheimer's disease.
Summer's here and cilantro is readily available across the country. It is
very popular herb in Mexican cooking, and due to their large Mexican
populations is easy to find anywhere from Texas to California. In other
areas, you may need to visit an Oriental market or specialty supermarket,
(Remember, its also called Chinese parsley.)
I would highly recommend that you take advantage of this "poor man's
chelation treatment". I'm in the process of doing it now myself and intend
to do so at least once or twice a year from now on. All it takes is adding
fresh cilantro to your everyday foods or eating a couple teaspoons of
cilantro pesto a day for two or three weeks; either will give the dose Dr.
Omura used in his research. Judging by the price around here that means
you'd be spending less than a dollar for two weeks of cleansing! Of course,
if you really don't like cilantro, you can always spend a thousand times
more on medical chelation from a doctor ...
Here's another good recipe:
HERB & WALNUT PESTO
1 bunch fresh basil
1 bunch fresh coriander
3 leaves fresh mint
1 large (2 small) cloves of garlic (poached 1 minute in boiling water)
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt
Wash and dry the fresh herbs in filtered water. Remove stalks if hard and
chop leaves finely with sharp French knife. Break up walnut halves into
small pieces. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 20 seconds or
until everything has been reduced to a purée. Scrape into serving bowl or
into small jar if making ahead of time. Store in refrigerator.
Keeps for at least 1 week.
Serve with salad, pasta, vegetables or bread--to give a fresh tasting lift.
Substitute pine nuts for walnut halves.
that much on a series of intravenous chelation treatments...
