BERRY DELICIOUS HEAVY-METAL DETOX SMOOTHIE
This smoothie is not just any smoothie. It is an extremely powerful heavy metal detoxifier, a crucial ally in deep healing, and all credit goes to Medical Medium for this amazing recipe. Here I tweaked it so this is how I make my version.
In today's world, heavy metals are behind many of our health issues. As Anthony Williams, the amazing human behind the Medical Medium phenomenon, explains.. "Toxic heavy metals are virtually everywhere, and are present in things we come in contact with every day, such as aluminum cans and aluminum foil, batteries, metal cookware, old paint, and even the foods we eat. For instance, pesticides and herbicides (which are hard to completely avoid even on a strict organic diet), are a common source of heavy metals. As a result, most of us are carrying around heavy metals that have been with us for almost our whole lives and which have burrowed deep inside our tissues.
Unfortunately, it is these “old” metals, the ones that have been lurking in our system for prolonged periods of time, that pose the greatest threat. For example, over time toxic heavy metals can oxidize, causing damage to surrounding tissue and promoting inflammation. They literally poison our bodies, and can inflict damage on virtually every system and organ, including our brain, liver, digestive system, and other parts of our nervous system. Toxic heavy metals put an immense burden on our immune system, leaving us vulnerable to a variety of illnesses."
In my own journey of healing chronic adrenal fatigue, I've found the Medical Medium protocol incredibly helpful. It kickstarted my return to vibrant wellness and energy through the roof, after being bedridden for months and having no energy to do pretty much anything. I love what he shares and this smoothie is a goodie I come back to now and again when I want a really filling yet easily digestible and light liquid meal. I use other protocol too to detox heavy metals, so I am not just relying on this bad boy.
When I want a smoothie bowl - I leave the dulse flakes in (dulse makes it really thick and sludgy, kinda like chia). Sometimes I just leave it out if I want a regular smoothie consistency - especially if I am taking it on-the-go. If you leave the dulse in and you pack your smoothie to go, it will become a pudding and you'll need a spoon!
BUT if healing is a major priority, leave it in! And take that spoon with you.
2 cups wild blueberries, frozen; I cup organic frozen strawberries
1 cup cilantro
1 cup orange juice
1 tsp barley grass juice powder
1 tsp spirulina
1 small handful of Atlantic dulse
Optional: filtered water to blend
In a high speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. If a thinner consistency is desired, add up to 1 cup of water.
