This is my previous post about detoxing. Hope it helps.
For those looking for detox info, this might be helpful. (Note: I haven't used this, an online friend posted it after a discussion on our group about lead removal).
Reasonably-priced mineral analysis. Checks for mineral imbalances in your body & detects heavy metals. They recommend specific supplements to correct each individual's imbalances--based on the lab results.
I also have a friend that is an herbalist, or something along those lines. For copper detoxing she recommends Vit C (NOT ascorbic acid). "I suggest taking TONS of C COMPLEX (NOT ascorbic acid!). Rosehips, acerola cherry powder, etc. Take C Complex every hour, increasing your dose until you get diarrhea (not just loose stools). Then take 3/4 of the total you have taken so far and divide that number by 2, and that will be your daily detox dose for the next 3 weeks or so. So....if you take 1/2 teaspoon of acerola cherry powder at 8:00 a.m., and 1 1/2 tsp. at 9:00, 2 tsp. at 10:00, and by your 3 tsp. dose at noon you've got diarrhea, your total amount for the day so far would be 9 1/2 tsp. 3/4 of that is 4 1/2 tsp. So, your dose for the next 3 weeks is 2 1/4 tsp. at breakfast, and 2 1/4 tsp. at supper. Now, that is quite a bit of C Complex, so I'd suggest if you use acerola cherry powder, that you start out your day of "dosing" testing, with increments of 1/4 tsp. at a time."
You have to be very careful in what you get. I went to the natural foods store and asked for vit c. What I was given did have rose hips and acerola, but the main ingredient was ascorbic acid. I was several huge doses in and it wasn't affecting me, but my nursling would have diarrhea when she nursed. That's when I went back and checked the label a little more closely. Have to say, I was pretty pissed. She also suggested combining this with an Epsom Salt bath every day while drinking a tea that is sweat inducing, like yarrow. So, hot as you can take it tea and bath. You want to treat it like a steam bath (if you have access to a steam bath or sauna, even better!); putting a towel under the door to hold in the heat helps. I still haven't found a source of Vit C in town, so am ordering it. Will let everyone know how it goes.
