    Default Pectin for radioactive & heavy metal detox

    I have been researching detoxification for low-level radiation poisoning since the fukushima disaster.

    It seems one of the most effective treatments is one of the simplest and most widely available...it also works for heavy metal detox, and the reality is most of us are probably more at risk for heavy metal poisoning than radioactivity. There are a lot of expensive BS products out there. Here we have something CHEAP & proven to be effective.

    Anyway, here it is: Fruit pectin. Eat it. Micturate. Eliminate monster turds. Feel better, live longer.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pectin

    "Yablokov et al., writing about the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, quote research conducted by the Ukrainian Center of Radiation Medicine and the Belarussian Institute of Radiation Medicine and Endocrinology with the conclusion that "adding pectin preparations to the food of inhabitants of the Chernobyl-contaminated regions promotes an effective excretion of incorporated radionuclides". The authors report on the positive results of using pectin food additive preparations in a number of clinical studies conducted on children in severely polluted areas, with up to 50% improvement over control groups.[10]"
    There are expensive capsules you can take of 'modified fruit pectin' which are supposedly more effective, but I suspect the stuff off the grocery store may be just as effective in terms of cost. Still researching this.

    Here's a bit from a site selling the modified form:
    http://www.advancedbionutritionals.c...FYPr7QodHjz7qA
    The Only Oral Detox Solution Proven
    to Work in Human Clinical Studies

    It's called modified citrus pectin, and it's made from the inner peel of citrus fruits. Modified citrus pectin is one of the most powerful chelating substances I've found in the world, and it's been proven to work in human clinical studies.

    In one recent study USDA scientists gave people modified citrus pectin for six days. (Phytother. Res. 20, 2006; 859–864) The scientists measured the amount of toxins excreted in the participants urine before taking the modified citrus pectin and 24 hours after taking the citrus pectin.

    The results?

    The amount of deadly arsenic excreted in participants' urine increase by 130%...

    The amount of toxic mercury excreted increased by 150%...

    The amount of cadmium excreted increased by a whopping 230%...

    And the amount of toxic lead excreted in participants' urine increased by an amazing 560%! (Phytother. Res. 20, 2006; 859–864)
    Dramatic results like these in only 24 hours are simply unheard of!

    And here's something else amazing: Even though modified citrus pectin is strong enough to soak up toxins and heavy metals like a sponge, it's also so gentle on your system that not a single person in these human trials reported any side effects!

    In fact, modified citrus pectin is so safe it has been tested on children as young as 5 years old who suffer from lead poisoning. Every child tested had a dramatic increase in the excretion of lead in their urine - over 130% on average. (Alternative Therapies, Jul/Aug 2008, Vol. 14, No. 4)

    The reason modified citrus pectin is safer than many forms of chelation therapy is because it does NOT deplete the essential minerals your body needs. So while it eliminates toxic metals and pesticides like lead, cadmium and mercury, it doesn't deplete your body of zinc, calcium or magnesium. In fact, there was no change in the level of these vital minerals in patients during the study.
    Most commercially sold pectin comes from citrus peels. The white part of the peel. Since I was a kid, dad always told me to eat the white part. He was right.

    For a while now, we have been making fruit/vegetable smoothies in a 3hp blender. If we do citrus (lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit, we cut away the outer colored peel with a knife, leaving most of the white inner peel, and toss the whole thing in the blender. So we already have a fair bit of pectin in our usual diet, along with other phytochemicals in the peel.

    I am further wondering if other soluble fibers are equally effective for detoxification - oatmeal, avocado seed (yes, that goes in the blender - slightly bitter, but highest source of soluble fiber of any food).

    Anyway, happy detox.

    This suggests using the supermarket variety:

    What is Fruit Pectin and Where is it Found?

    Pectin is a substance found naturally in many fruits whose properties make it excellent for use for making jellies. Pectin also has the ability to pull heavy metals and other contaminants from the blood stream through a process called chelation. These contaminants are excreted through normal urination.

    Pectin is found in the rinds of many fruits and vegetables. Excellent sources of pectin are bananas, apples, cabbage, okra, beets, grapes, carrots and all citrus fruit in the white part called the pith.

    Gently Detox from Contaminants and Heavy Metals

    Eat several servings of high-pectin fruit daily for a natural, gentle detox. One of the best sources of pectin is green apples. Organic apple juice and unsweetened applesauce are also good sources of natural fruit pectin.

    Using Pectin to Chelate Heavy Metals and for Deep Drug Detox
    For a deeper and more controlled detox, find pectin at the grocery store in the canning section. Pectin made especially for chelating heavy metals and drugs is available at health food stores in powdered form. Check labels to make sure the pectin is free of MSG.

    To use pectin, mix 2-4 teaspoons of dry pectin to an 8 oz. glass of grape juice once a day. Start with a lower dose of pectin until the body gets used to it and increase the amount slowly.

    Continue taking pectin for a period from 2 weeks to 6 months to complete a drug detox or when chelating heavy metals. Indicators for completing the detox period are a reduction in symptoms. Although there is no such thing as a symptom-free detoxification during chelation therapy, if pectin is taken in small quantities over a period of time, overall health will return as energy increases and disease symptoms disappear.

    Supervision for Heavy Metals Chelation and Drug Detox

    People addicted to narcotics of any form should use pectin only under supervision during drug detox.

    Pectin can cause problems in people who are sensitive. Some people may experience a flare up of their symptoms during the detox period including dizziness, nausea, joint or muscle pain, weakness and fatigue. Reducing the amount of the dose is usually enough to lessen symptoms making the detox experience more comfortable. Seek medical supervision to help with dosing.

    Apple Pectin Reduces Cesium 137 load nearly 40% in 16 days

    In one study following the Chernobyl accident, two groups of children, one with very high and another with less high levels of cesium 137 were given supplementary apple pectin. Apple pectin significantly decreased 137Cs loads in these groups (39% and 28%, respectively). This is remarkable! http://www.greenmedinfo.com/article/...osed-radioisot


    Pectin displays anti-cancer properties

    Dr. John Barron writes:

    A research team at the Institute of Food Research in Norwich, England, discovered that a substance in pectin binds to a tumor-producing protein called galectin 3. Galectin 3 allows cancer cells to detach from tumors and to reattach elsewhere, and so it's a major factor in the spread of cancer. But pectin blocks the activity of galectin 3 and in so doing, may prevent the progression of cancer within the body...

    ...Studies last year confirmed that pectin does, in fact, actively work in combating cancer. A research team at the University of Georgia found that pectin destroyed up to 40 percent of prostate cancer cells upon exposure, while other studies revealed that pectin helps in fighting lung and colon cancers.

    An apple a day...
    It might well be said that, while the free market bends over backwards to serve the needs and desires of individuals, the state merely bends individuals over backwards.
