The day I officially became a woman is also the day I, unfortunately, started an unwanted relationship with Advil.
Every month I’d be gifted with exhaustion, inability to lye still due to cramping, intense pain causing hot flashes and freaked-out looks from my boyfriend.
No, I wasn’t harbouring an alien inside me, just the regular old first day of my period.
As a Naturopath, I knew there was a cause for these symptoms; my body was definitely trying to tell me something, but what?
I already ate very well, juiced regularly, exercised, did yoga, had fulfilling relationships. What was missing?
I tried many natural remedies, but none were nearly as effective for pain relief as my beloved toxic Advil until I tried this.
A while back, I began an extensive study on the effects of toxic heavy metals on the body and how they contribute to many illnesses. High loads of heavy metals can be found in various parts of the body, such as the brain, liver and reproductive organs in both males and females.
Aluminum, lead, mercury, nickel, copper, cadmium, steel, arsenic, etc.
Toxic heavy metals are unfortunately everywhere and pretty much impossible to avoid (so don’t beat yourself up!!)
Honestly, when I tried this recipe, it wasn’t even for me. I decided to try it because my boyfriend has Alzheimer’s in his family and sometimes experiences brain fog, both of which are greatly affected by heavy metals.
At first, I thought it was a coincidence. Two months after drinking this smoothie many times a week, I was travelling and didn’t have any anti-inflammatory on me. My first thought was, oh shit, now I’m going to die…but surprisingly, I had only slight discomfort and no need for pain medication. I kept testing it out month after month, and now it’s years with no major pain.
I still drink this smoothie many times a week to counter the unavoidable daily consumption of heavy metals.
