People are exposed to heavy metals in a few different ways, primarily through drinking water or food, amalgam fillings, (even crops can uptake metals from contaminated soil). Many heavy metals are poisonous to humans, even in small concentrations.
Caveat: Before starting anything understand that redistribution is worse than leaving mercury/heavy metals in one place. Redistribution aggravates and stirs up toxicity symptoms. It would make sense that you need to eliminate more than you redistribute to make the elimination worth the redistribution. Be aware of your body. There are people who’ve done chelation like chlorella and cilantro and it made their condition worse over time bc it is vital to keep the removal of the heavy metals ahead of the release from the body. Consult with a functional doctor or naturopath beforehand.
Heavy metals Mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum, among others, are able to tuck themselves into our bones and nervous system, bio-accumulating for years until we start to suffer acute health problems from heavy metal poisoning.
Heavy metals do not biodegrade, which means they can persist in our bodies.
Chelating agents can be given to bind with the heavy metals (usually through an intravenous (IV) drip), but IV chelation can be very expensive.
2 Foods That Can Detox Heavy Metals
There seems to be a simple one-two combination that helps to chelate heavy metals – cilantro and chlorella – (but some say it makes things worse).
A Japanese animal study demonstrated cilantro (Chinese parsley) rapidly removed aluminum and lead from the bones and other organs – even while the mice were continuously poisoned with lead.
Dietrich Klinghardt M.D., Ph.D writes:
“This kitchen herb (Chinese parsley aka cilantro) is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in both bones and the central nervous system.
“Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins than it can carry out of the body, it may flood tissues with metals that were previously stored in safer hiding places.
(People who’ve eaten cilantro daily have experienced a re-toxification effect – brain fog, acne, joint pain, etc. While they were mobilizing heavy metals, they weren’t all excreted from the body fast enough, which meant they were detoxing and toxifying themselves the same time!)
The premise is that, once free, the next step is to actually facilitate the removal of the metals from the body.
Chlorella possesses the capacity to absorb heavy metals.
This property has been exploited as a means for treating industrial effluent that contains heavy metals before it is discharged, and to recover the bio-available fraction of the metal in the process. In studies undertaken in Germany, chlorella has been used in eliminating heavy metals from:
- from the brain
- intestinal wall
- connective tissue
- and bone
Dr. Klinghardt gives exact details of the protocol using chlorella (first), then cilantro 30 minutes later here.
BUT, a Caveat: Before starting anything understand that redistribution is worse than leaving mercury/heavy metals in one place. Redistribution aggravates and stirs up toxicity symptoms. It would make sense that you need to eliminate more than you redistribute to make the elimination worth the redistribution. Be aware of your body.

The purpose of this post is not to give a protocol, but to give you resources where you can research more. I personally find trying to take chlorella and cilantro in the right proportions and in the right order, confusing.
With chlorella and cilantro there is also the question of ‘is it safe to do it with amalgam fillings still in your mouth’? Always talk first with your biological dentist.
TRS (Nano-zeolite) removes heavy metals (the product my family and I have chosen)
Read for yourself and verify the research on zeolites instead of taking my word for it.
WHAT DOES TRS REMOVE?
TRS removes any toxin with a positive charge COMPLETELY OUT of the body (unlike chlorella) and includes:
- aluminum, mercury, arsenic, fluoride, barium, strontium, uranium, lead, and others
- gadolinium (considered a heavy metal) a very common toxin used as a contrast agent in MRIs
- pesticides and herbicides (incl Roundup/glyphosate)
- nasty ingredients from antidepressants, OTC meds like Benadryl, chemo, etc. Chemo can be used with TRS!!
- plastic residues
- toxins from molds and yeasts (mycotoxins, etc)
- carcinogens from smoke and haze
- radioactive material
