It should be
outrageous to think that the very water we drink is poisoned - but
the water actually is.
fluoride is found naturally in underground and ocean water, the
sodium fluoride added to the public water supply is virtually toxic,
a wolf in the sheep’s garb of improved dental health. (The West
Virginia University Rural Health Research Center says that
fluoride doesn’t even prevent cavities;
vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids are better allies for that.)
Even the federal
government is calling for lower levels of fluoride in public water
after a Harvard study confirmed
fluoride’s lowers IQ.
So needless to say, it is extremely important to know of fluoride
In the wake of
even more horrifying findings like fluoride’s link to the
and cancer epidemic (causing at least
10,000 cancer deaths since 1977),
it’s imperative that we learn how to defend ourselves against
systematic and casual envenoming of our water.
Here are 5 methods for
fluoride treatment - ways to detoxify your body of fluoride.
Fluoride Treatment - Iodine
While too much
iodine is linked to hypothyroidism, so is too little.
The good thing about
iodine is that it increases urine irrigation of sodium fluoride
as calcium fluoride. Although it does take some calcium with it
(calling for an adjustment in diet or calcium supplementation),
iodine and lecithin both remove fluoride from the body.
from Africa, tamarind is a staple in Ayurvedic medicine that can
be made into a tea or tincture that pushes fluoride out in
liver is responsible for clearing toxins out of the body, it
makes sense to go through
a liver cleanse
to detox from fluoride. You can do a standard cleanse at home
over a week or so; just be sure to undergo a safe and
trustworthy cleanse per instructions.
If the cleanse
is absolutely not for you (although you can read up on
5 reasons you should do it today),
you can cleanse your liver daily with these
liver cleansing foods.
Cleansing the liver is essential for fluoride treatment.
The next time you’re
shopping for laundry detergent, scoop up a box of Borox, which
contains boron. Pour 1/32 of a teaspoon (up to ¼ teaspoon) into
a liter of distilled water and sip it throughout the day. (Yes,
this is safe.)
Not only will the
box last forever, you can use it to do some eco-friendly
cleaning around the house, too.
Intense but safe
sweating from heat as well as exercise brings out sodium
fluoride from fatty tissues. Just be sure to keep hydrating -
with distilled water - and to protect your kidneys with
As with any kind of
detox, use caution and go at the pace that feels good for you and
your body. In addition to detoxing the fluoride out, you can also
limit the amount of fluoride coming in by investing in a water
system that filters out fluoride, such as a reverse osmosis water
As you incorporate any
fluoride treatment and the fluoride leaves your system, you’ll
experience overall health improvements, and you’ll never look at the
faucet the same way again.
How to Detox Fluorides from Your Body
You can rid
you body of most fluorides with some easy natural remedies.
Fluorides have been linked to a variety of severe chronic, even
acute health issues. First a quick review summary of fluoride.
Fluoride is a soluble salt, not a heavy metal. There are two basic
types of fluoride.
appears naturally in underground water sources and even seawater.
Enough of it can cause skeletal or dental fluorosis, which weakens
bone and dental matter. But it is not nearly as toxic, nor does it
negatively affect so many other health issues as sodium fluoride,
which is added to many water supplies.
Sodium Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear,
aluminum, and phosphate fertilizer industries. This fluoride has an
amazing capacity to combine and increase the potency of other toxic
materials. The sodium fluoride obtained from industrial waste and
added to water supplies is also already contaminated with lead,
aluminum, and cadmium.
It damages the liver and kidneys, weakens the immune system,
possibly leading to cancer, creates symptoms that mimic
fibromyalgia, and performs as a Trojan Horse to carry aluminum
across the blood brain barrier.
The latter is
recognized as a source of the notorious "dumbing down" with lower
IQ's and Alzheimer's effects of fluoride.
Another not commonly known organ victim of fluorosis is the pineal
gland, located in the middle of the brain. The pineal gland can
become calcified from
fluorides, inhibiting it's function as a melatonin producer.
Melatonin is needed for sound, deep sleep, and the lack of it also
contributes to thyroid problems that affect the entire endocrine
The pineal gland is also
considered the physical link to the upper chakras or third eye for
spiritual and intuitive openings.
Various permutations of Sodium Fluoride are also in many
insecticides for homes and pesticides for crops. Sometimes it is
even added to baby foods and bottled waters. If you live in a water
fluoridated area, purchase commercially grown fruits, especially
grapes, and vegetables that are chemically sprayed and grown areas
irrigated by fluoridated water, you are getting a triple whammy!
Better skip that
Avoiding Fluoride Contamination
As always, the first step in detoxifying is to curb taking in
Purifying water by
reverse osmosis or distillation in fluoridated water communities is
a good start to slowing down your
contamination. Distillation comes with a bit of controversy, as all
the minerals are removed. A great mineral supplement such as Fulvic
Acid (not folic acid) or unsulfured blackstrap molasses is
recommended if you distill your water.
Avoiding sprayed, commercially grown foods while consuming organic
or locally grown foods is another big step. Watch out for processed
foods such as instant tea, grape juice products, and soy milk for
babies. They all contain high concentrations of sodium fluoride. So
do many pharmaceutical "medicines". By minimizing your sodium
fluoride intake, your body can begin eliminating the fluorides in
your system slowly.
Magnesium is a very important mineral that many are lacking.
Besides being so
important in the metabolism and synthesis of nutrients within your
cells, it also inhibits the absorption of fluoride into your cells!
Along with magnesium, calcium seems to help attract the fluorides
away from your bones and teeth, allowing your body to eliminate
So during any

supplemental dose of absorbable calcium/magnesium as part of the

This author received a comment stating that an earlier article's
source reference to sunlight for decalcifying the pineal gland was
He said that darkness,
not light, is needed to stimulate the pineal gland into melatonin
production, which should lead to breaking up the calcification of
that gland. Besides being logical, further source research indicates
the critic is correct!
Day time exercise, a healthful diet, not over eating, and meditation
all contribute to higher melatonin production from the pineal gland.
Though very helpful to many for getting a full night's deep sleep,
it appears inconclusive whether melatonin supplements will help
decalcify the pineal gland.
But it does seem logical
that it might.

ascorbic acid as your vitamin C source for an adjunct to any of the
fluoride detox methods. Do take in as much other types of vitamin C
as you can tolerate, along with a couple of tablespoons of lecithin
daily. Add those to your absorbable calcium and magnesium
supplements with plenty of pure water, get good sleep and rest, and
the detox should be relatively smooth.
Chelation therapies are recommended primarily for heavy metal
removals. Though fluorides are salts, the synthetic waste product
variety, sodium fluoride, comes with a cargo of toxic heavy metals.
And these pernicious salts have a way of combining more heavy
metals. So including any one of several chelation therapies may be
beneficial for overall health improvements while applying your
chosen fluoride remedy or remedies.
Those include bentonite clay internally or externally, fulvic acid
(NOT folic acid), cilantro pesto with chlorella, and even DMSA or
any other chellation therapy with which you are familiar.
