Chelation Pesto...removing Heavy Metals

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by michEgan

This is a excellent recipe I found at a site called: Health, Wealth & Happiness,( and it came from Gayle. We all get toxins invading our bodies, one way we get heavy metals is through aluminum pop can, underarm deoderants, even baking soda. Also Mercury from dental fillings, cadmium from rechargeable batteries. This is a cheap way we can rid these from our system. For those who do not like cilantro, maybe this is a good reason to begin to try and like it.

This is really tasty! I usually add a little sugar to my batch. I also pick a bunch of cilantro with smaller stems and leaves when not in season because the flavor is better. This has a nice consistency and spreads nicely. I found this recipe on another site about 4 years ago and wow, it really works! I love the nutty flavor. My kids even eat it on Triscuits and Wheat Thins! I've noticed a difference in my energy level when I eat it daily and there's a nice difference in the powder room. It's a very nice gentle tissue cleanse for our bodies. Thanks!
