How do you get rid of Heavy
A single mother called my Meltdown
hotline and requested a Tissue Mineral Analysis for her and her daughter.
The daughter was doing terribly in school. She couldn't remember
her multiplication tables and was failing math. The funny thing was,
the mother was having trouble remembering things, too.
The mother, who is fluent in Spanish, has taken a job in Mexico when
her daughter was an infant. She suspected living near a lead smelter
in Mexico was causing these problems six years later.
She was right. Both mother and daughter were both dangerously toxic
After clients receive a copy of their Tissue Mineral Analysis Report,
they often call me in a panic because they are toxic with aluminum
or arsenic or mercury. They want to know how to precipitate these
dangerous substances out of their tissues.
That's what I'm going to tell you today.
The first thing you need to know is toxic metals will stay in the
body for a lifetime unless you do something to mobilize them. I learned
that lesson the hard way. Unlike President Clinton, I not only smoked
marijuana during my college years, but hey, I inhaled, too. I went
to Yale during the revolution. Kent State, Viet Nam. I almost got
arrested for protesting at a U.S. Air Force base during the Angela
Davis trial which was held in New Haven, Connecticut, where Yale
is located. And a big part of the Revolution was marijuana.
But when I grew up, I quit. I haven't smoked a joint since 1973.
When I had my first TMA in 1993, I was shocked to see I was toxic
with a metal called strontium. I asked Dr. David Watts, my mentor
and the man whose research forms the basis of my program, how could
I possibly get this strange stuff in my system. He started to laugh.
Strontium is a byproduct of marijuana smoke. The telltale residue
was still there, 20 years later. (Maybe we should do a TMA on President
Clinton and see if he really DID inhale!). Oops.
One of the reasons I didn't get rid of my strontium was because I
became a vegetarian for 10 years thereafter. Unfortunately, the body
can't mobilize heavy metals unless you ingest an adequate amount
of lean protein. The metals will "latch onto" the protein molecules.
The protein molecules act as a transport system and move them from
their storage areas in your soft tissues. They then flow through
the digestive tract for excretion.
Since I had given up all animal protein, the vegetarian protein wasn't
enough to wrestle with my strontium deposits. So they just stayed
Although this may be politically incorrect, you have to eat a moderate
amount of animal protein if you are going to remove heavy metals
from your tissues. But this can be lean protein; you don't have to
cause your fat grams to skyrocket. I can't remember the last time
I ate a greasy hamburger. But yesterday I had a 4 ounce porterhouse
steak sans fat.
Also, getting your body back into equilibrium will allow the heavy
metals to attach to the proteins in your body. The medical term is "homeostatic
equilibrium." If you are toxic with calcium or don't have enough
iron -- a common scenario for American and Western European women
-- it will be near impossible to mobilize those metals. Of course,
a Tissue Mineral Analysis test will tell you exact what to eat to
get your body back into balance.
Here's some more bad news: Mobilizing and eliminating heavy metals
will cause you discomfort. If it's copper, I'll guarantee you will
break out with acne. (That's why women break out at menstruation;
copper levels rise then.) You break out where the copper stores are
being depleted. Could be around your mouth or neck or chest. If you're
removing lead or iron and have arthritis, you will experience temporary
The key word here is temporary. The discomfort disappears when you've
removed all the excess metal.
If you are toxic with aluminum, it's probably because of your deodorant.
Try to find one without aluminum.
Finally, don't jump to conclusions. When I got my first TMA, I was
oxic with arsenic. My ex-husband is a brilliant physician. We lived
through the Dr. X case in Manhattan where a jealous doctor poisoned
his competition's patients with hard to detect curare. I was certain
Dr. Bob did the same to me with arsenic. As it turned out, the arsenic
was in the tick spray I used for my yard!
Freud once said, "ignorance is no excuse for dumb behavior".
In the Meltdown interpretation of those words, ignorance is a choice
we make to prevent ourselves from making difficult changes in our
lives even though we really know better. Now you have no excuse not
to get healthy!
