Removal of toxins…Posted by: admin / Category: Health
During my time working for Dr. Huggins I constantly
came across clients wanting to go through some form of detoxification or chelation,
my first question was to ask why?. The standard response was “to
remove the heavy metals from my body” it has been proven that these come
primarily from the amalgam fillings placed in the teeth over the years.
I can understand why this would be a strong desire especially as the person had been
experiencing one form of health problem or another and often this had been the
case for several years.
I would then ask if they still had amalgam fillings in their teeth, if the answer was
yes then I’d explain that there was no point in using one of the many forms of
detox or chelation at this time.
To do this was a little like trying to dry yourself while still in the shower…yes
that does sound a little silly but that is what they would be doing.
The amalgam was, and is the greatest source of mercury released into the body,
every time you chew, brush your teeth or drink hot drinks you stimulate the
release of methyl mercury which is 100 times more toxic than mercury, mercury
is the most toxic non radioactive substance on earth.
So, detoxification is simply not a viable option until the amalgams have been
Now back to the subject of detoxification, I will cover this assuming that there
are no amalgams in your teeth.
We’ve all seen and heard the many claims that a particular product will remove all
heavy metals from your body in two days, or one week or a month. All you have
to do is drink this unction or potion twice a day or take this pill with all
meals or whatever…
Some, I’m sure will have some positive effect’s however, most don’t…mercury is not an
element that actually wants to leave the body once it has found somewhere to
live. The problem is that blood tests in the main will not show mercury in the
blood, it’s devious, it hides, and I liken it to the Taliban or some other
terrorist organization. They wouldn’t wander the streets of NY holding a banner
claiming to kill all the American infidels. No, they would take a job and
pretend to be an active member of the community.
Ok so what do I mean by this, your blood cells all carry an identifier like a
number plate on a car, this is called a Major Histocompatibily Complex (MHC).
This is unique to every person; your immune system constantly looks for “non
self” cells, when found the alarm bells are sounded
The first line of defense is Globulin, part of the total protein in your body. Globulin
will rush in to attack the invader, but sadly, mercury is indestructible to
anything the body can throw at it so all that happens is the globulin is
rendered totally ineffective and the mercury now has a hiding place.
So, when you have your blood tested by those wonderful people telling you that
their product is “the best thing since sliced bread”, mercury doesn’t show up,
and “wow, this amazing product has
done its job…no it hasn’t, it’s just
that the mercury is hiding.
To my knowledge there is only one way of actually finding the level of mercury in one’s
body, this test is done by a wonderful company called “Quicksliver Scientific”
in Lafayette, Colorado run by Chris Shade, PhD.
This is a methyl and inorganic mercury test, and as far as I know, Dr Shade is the
only one in the country doing this. At the beginning of 2011 the cost was $250.00.
There are several tests that can be done in addition to the methyl mercury test that
will help, please spend some time at their website.
Dr. Shade is a wonderful man and can be contacted:
303 531 0861
The test is done by Quicksilver Scientific but you still need pay to have the blood
draw, this is done through a lab such as LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics, you’ll
need to do your own research here because the blood draw can vary from $35 to
$100. At the end of the day it’s just a blood draw and should be on the lower
end of the scale.
Probably the easiest and least traumatic way of detoxifying is to use the C-flush method
which is basically using Vitamin C or Sodium Ascorbate powder, when doing this
you should always ensure you have the following ingredients:
Sodium Ascorbate powder
Activated charcoal capsules
Or you can call Huggins Applied Healing and buy the C-Flush package which includes
all the above. 1 800 948 4638
This process is best started on a Saturday if you work during the week; this is to
allow a day of rest following the C-flush.
The program is done over a 7 week period, week one you start by taking one gram of
sodium ascorbate powder (roughly a level teaspoon) in 2 oz’s of water, mix
thoroughly and swallow.
This is done every 20 minutes until the onset of diarrhea, it typically takes 8 or 9
grams to induce diarrhea, and once the diarrhea starts it will normally
continue for a couple of hours. Do not take any more sodium ascorbate powder
that day. If however diarrhea hasn’t started by the fifteenth gram you should
stop and try again the next day.
You should drink the electrolyte drink to replace those lost during the elimination;
I found that taking two activated charcoal caps a few hours after the diarrhea
has stopped will also help in preventing an unexpected reoccurrence.
Now I said this is done over a 7 week period so here are the specific instructions:
One gram of sodium ascorbate powder in 2 oz’s of water every 20 minutes until diarrhea
starts, continue to eat normally during the day. Take two charcoal capsules
several hours after the diarrhea has stopped, also take the electrolyte drink
and the Probiotic.
The following day should be a day of rest and recuperation because you will feel
rather drained and a little tired.
Repeat the process as per week one.
Repeat the process as per week one.
Week 4, 5 and 6.
Eat normally; take no sodium ascorbate powder.
Repeat process for week one.
This is the least traumatic way of detoxifying and one that is recommended by Dr.
When I first joined Dr. Huggins, I wanted to try the C Flush so I would have
firsthand experience and be able to honestly relate my findings to the clients
I talked to each day. So during the first seven weeks I used this method of
detoxifying and found it quite helpful and very easy to do.
If you’ve had your amalgam fillings removed and there is a very specific procedure
to do this which I will cover later in the book under the heading Amalgam
fillings. A couple of weeks later you can start the detoxification through a
vitamin c flush or another very useful and effective product is IMD made by Quicksilver Scientific.
IMD is Intestinal Metal Detox which
comes in a powder or 100mg capsule form, the contact information is listed
earlier in this e-book.
I personally used this product with very positive effects for 18 months, during
this time I had no negative side effects.
In fact when I first met Dr. Shade in 2008, we discussed my health problems, I had
been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2004 so he suggested I use the
IMD and gave me a three month supply.
I had recently gone through a Total Dental Revision with the wonderful Dr.
Blanche Grube so exercising wasn’t an option for me initially; however after a
three month wait which was very difficult for me I was able to start to gently
During the first week of using IMD I was taking it in the morning after eating
breakfast, Dr. Shade had suggested I
take it on an empty stomach but that just didn’t work for me as it gave me an upset
stomach. However after I started taking it an hour after my food in the morning
I started noticing very positive results.
Before I started on IMD I tried exercising but it was still very difficult for me, an
exercise called a squat thrust, starting in a push up position then jumping
your legs forward and backwards.
I managed 6 pathetic squat thrusts, I was embarrassed at my feeble attempts,
however a week after using IMD I was able to do 20 squat thrusts, then 30
minutes later I did another 20.
Over the next month it improved to sets of 60 three times in the evening, meaning I
did 180 each day.
As far as I know the product costs around $130 for a 10 week supply, taking one
per day, 5 days on then 2 off.
Another method recommended by Dr. Huggins would be a hot bath or/and a far infra red
sauna, now if both are used, they should not be done both on the same day, I’ll
explain the reasons why.
Firstly the hot bath is probably the easier and cheaper method than far infra red sauna;
it is only the cost of a bath of hot water and some Epsom salts.
Run a bath of hot water, but not too hot, the temperature should be only as hot as
you feel comfortable stepping in without burning your feet or making that “ah”
sound. Pour a cup of Epsom salts into the running water, swish it around to mix
the salts effectively into the water.
Make sure you have a bath sheet, a large bath towel, lower yourself into the bath
and pull the bath sheet around you in the water.
Stay in the bath no longer than you feel comfortable, this would vary between
people, so I suggest no longer than 15 minutes. Then stand up and shower
yourself off, do not wipe the water off yourself first as all this will do is
push the excreted mercury back into your skin.
You can do this three times per week.
If you have a Far Infra Red Sauna, only use this on the days you are not taking the
bath, alternate between the two, only use the sauna three times per week. This
is because your body can only detox at a certain speed. Think of it this way,
if you had a wide mouthed funnel, you can pile whatever you want funneled as
quick as you like, however the other end is only a narrow tube. So, it will
come out at a much slower rate, meaning the material you are trying to detox
from will overflow which will cause you to feel sick or at least very unwell.
I’m talking from experience here, while going through a detox after my dental
revision and feeling very good about myself. I “overdosed” on my detox. Sad because I’m very good at giving advice
but it seems not too good at taking my own, is that a man thing? So I learnt
the hard way, and want you to benefit from my own silly mistakes.
Over the years I regularly spoke to people who asked about chlorella, my opinion is
different from Dr. Huggins, he tells people to stay away from this product
because it comes from the ocean. In his opinion anything from the ocean and
that includes all forms of sea food/fish/plankton etc is contaminated with
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Huggins and the amazing work he has done over
the years and I’m not saying that he is wrong, at the end of the day I am just
me, Stefan Cairns, I’m not a doctor/PhD/Scientist .just someone that worked for
him for three and a half years.
However I did a great deal of research and I believe your mind should be like a
parachute, it doesn’t work unless it’s open. With this attitude I put a great
deal of faith in Dr. Joseph Mercola who has the biggest natural health website
in the world.
Dr. Mercola talks very positively about chlorella products and the effectiveness in
heavy metal removal.
