5 Ways to Naturally Cleanse Fluoride Out of Your Body

The Indian Journal of Pediatrics published research which found thousands of cases of severe skeletal fluorosis in children, believed to be caused by cumulative effects of fluoridated water. The report by Scientific American “concluded that fluoride can subtly alter endocrine function, especially in the thyroid—the gland that produces hormones regulating growth and metabolism.”

Following are some ways that fluoride can be removed from the body naturally:

Iodine has been clinically shown to increase the amount of fluoride in urine, expelling it from the body as calcium fluoride. However, this may be depriving your body of calcium so make sure that you take calcium supplements to counter this problem.

Boron is a natural element known for its ability to flush fluoride out of the body. Eat more nuts, dates, prunes, honey, broccoli, bananas, and avocado. Add 1/32 of a teaspoon to a quart of distilled water and drink it in small sips throughout the day.

Selenium is the most common nutrient recommended for those who wish to remove  sodium fluoride from their body. Selenium can actually block the effect of fluoride and stimulate its elimination.

Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium, but remember to balance your intake. Consuming a large amount of Brazil nuts is not necessarily the best way to begin consuming selenium. Health experts recommend a dose of 100 to 200 micrograms, even though that is below the upper limits of the National Institute of Health’s recommendation, which is 400 micrograms.

Tamarind is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine. The pulp, bark and leaves are used to make teas, which have been shown to eliminate fluoride through urine.

Sauna is great for ridding your body of toxins—you sweat them out. The penetrating heat feels good, too. Make sure you drink plenty of water before and after so you don’t get dehydrated. If you have other medical conditions, consult your healthcare provider first.

As with any other detox, carefully adjust the pace that works best for you. In addition to this kind of detoxification, you can limit the amount of fluoride you consume if you invest in a water purification system that filters fluoride out. A reverse osmosis water system is one of the best choices for this. Eliminating fluoride from your body will help you feel a significant improvement in your health.
