Pectins Remove Drugs & Heavy Metals From Body
"About one year ago, I talked to a former drug addict who told me he could remove all the street drugs he ingested by drinking a package of liquid pectin he would buy at the local grocery store. He would mix it with water and drink the whole thing at once. He said that “in about 2 hours, all the drugs in his blood were gone.” He told me this included everything from marijuana to heroin to cocaine. "

PECTIN - THE FIBER THAT REMOVES HEAVY METALS AND TOXINS.
Dr. Balch reports that pectin is good for diabetics, removes toxins and heavy metals, lowers cholesterol and reduces the risk of gallstones. Dr. Balch reports that pectin is found in apples, bananas, the rinds of citrus fruits (lemons, oranges and grapefruit), carrots, beets, cabbage and okra.

Pectin in the rinds of lemons used in the whole lemon/olive oil drink may partly explain its many benefits that includes a lowering of heavy metals. Heavy metal toxicity affects persons with AIDS, CFIDS, cancer, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and anyone with depleted Glutathione levels. Pectin to the rescue.
HOW MUCH PECTIN TO USE?
There are no known limits to how much pectin is safe to use and there are no known side effects for using it in large quantities. Applesauce contains 4 grams of fiber per cup much of it in the form of pectin. Green apples of any variety, but especially Granny Smith variety, are very high in pectin. For someone very toxic, I would suggest 4 to 6 servings daily of any of the following: apples, bananas, carrots, beets, cabbage and okra. Apples can be eaten in the form of natural applesauce (without sugar added). If you can eat 3 cups of applesauce daily and 1 serving of 2 other choices like bananas, carrots, beets, cabbage or okra, you should see measurable results in lowering the heavy metals in about 10 days. Both apple pectin and citrus pectin are also sold in health food stores in powder form. Suggested adult dose: about 5 grams (5000 mg daily) once or twice daily.
Suggestion: Cook up your own applesauce. Cut up pieces of apples with the skins. If you use Rome, Jonathans or other red apples, find the ones that are the most green in color. Adding sugar is optional but should be avoided if you have a yeast problem. Add about 1/2 inch of water to the bottom of the pan and a dash of cinnamon and ginger while cooking it. With red apples, you can make a most delicious red-colored applesauce. Do not overcook it. Chunky applesauce is just plain tasty. Serve it hot with slices of ripe bananas topped with a little coconut milk or Haagen Dazs ice cream. Now that is a treat and a healthy one at that!
Now that you know what to eat to detoxify your body and promote a healthy colon and how to eat, what else can you do to promote the kind of friendly flora that will lower the pH of the colon, produce B vitamins, digestive enzymes and factors that fight cancers, viruses and fungus? Answer: When the soil is right, plant the right seeds - the strains of intestinal flora that will go to work for you.
Besides a diet high in fiber and pectin, consider probiotic supplements
With all the different kinds of probiotic formulations on the market that support intestinal flora, it is something of a challenge to pick the best ones. The key factors to look for in intestinal flora are if they support cell-mediated immunity by stimulating TH1 cytokines (IL-2, IL-12, IFN-gamma and IgA) and not predominantly TH2 (IL-6 and 10) and if they lower the pH of the colon to create a more acidic environment to inhibit viruses, fungus and gram negative bacteria. It is important to avoid supplements with S. Thermophilis that produces IL-6. Here is my assessment after talking to several readers who have tried different products.
