Eating For Arsenic Poisoning
We had a question the other day about arsenic poisoning.
Arsenic is a very poisonous metallic element found in a wide variety of sources, including pesticides, laundry products, smog, tobacco smoke, bone meal, dolomite, kelp, table salt, beer, seafood, and even drinking water.
When ingested, inorganic arsenic is deposited in your hair, skin, and nails.
Once it makes its way into your hair follicles, it can be detected in your hair shaft for years.
Headaches, confusion, drowsiness, convulsions, and changes in fingernail coloring may occur with chronic arsenic poisoning.
Symptoms of acute arsenic poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea, bloody urine, muscle cramps and/or weakness, fatigue, hair loss, dermatitis, gastrointestinal pain, and convulsions.
Arsenic poisoning primarily affects your lungs, skin, kidneys, and liver.
The accumulation of toxic levels of arsenic can result in coma and death.
Exposure to arsenic has also been implicated in the development of certain types of cancer.
Workers involved in pesticide production, agricultural insecticide spraying, copper smelting, mining, sheep dipping, and metallurgical industries are at a high risk for skin cancer, scrotal cancer, a type of liver cancer, cancer of the lymphatic system, and lung cancer due to arsenic exposure.
The toxic effects of arsenic are cumulative.
To deal with arsenic poisoning it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily as it hydrates your cells and flushes toxins (whether thirsty or not!).
*Sulfur helps eliminate arsenic from your body. Eat eggs, onions, beans, legumes, and garlic to get sulfur. You can also obtain sulfur from garlic supplements. Sulfur can be purchased in tablet form as well.
*Supplement your diet with plenty of fiber daily. Always take supplemental fiber separately from other supplements and medications.
*If you have symptoms of chronic arsenic poisoning, have a hair analysis done to determine the level of toxic metals in your body.
*In case of accidental arsenic ingestion, immediately take 5 charcoal tablets, and take 5 more every 15 minutes until you reach your health care provider or the emergency room of the nearest hospital. Charcoal tablets should be kept on hand in every household in case of accidental overdose of drugs.
*Chelation therapy removes toxic metals from your body.
*Perform a cleansing fast for 3 days each month to help your body get rid of toxins.
*Switch to safe, nontoxic cleaners, laundry and personal care products that don’t emit toxic fumes/residues.
*Avoid chemicals whenever possible.
*Eliminate smoking and second-hand smoke.
