6 Ways To Detox Fluoride – A Known Neurotoxin – From Your Body

Sodium fluoride is classified as a neurotoxin - in the same category as arsenic, lead, and mercury, but it’s still prevalent in the United States’ water supply. Here are six ways to detox the substance from your body.
For years, health experts have been debating about whether or not sodium fluoride is toxic to the human body. Small amounts applied topically may prevent tooth decay, but there is little evidence suggesting that fluoride improves health when it is ingested.
In fact, according to the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, the additive is actually a neurotoxin and is classified in the same category as arsenic, lead, and mercury. Because it is commonly ingested through fluoridated water, certain foods, and commercial toothpastes, researchers believe that the additive is contributing to a worldwide “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity” that results in disabilities such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments.
The report coincides with 2013 findings by a Harvard University meta-analysis which was funded by the National Institutes of Health. The researchers concluded that children in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower’ IQ scores than those who live in areas with low amounts of fluoride in their water supply. In addition, the Harvard website states that “extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies.” In addition, “little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment.”
Despite these findings, fluoride is still added to approximately 60% of the United States’ water supply. This is especially concerning, considering that sodium fluoride was once used as rat poison.
Because the cumulative toxin accumulates in the human body and can manifest in problems over time, including dental fluorosis – or far worse health issues, it’s important every individual follows the steps below to eliminate the additive from their body.
Note: You might experience detox symptoms at first – such as headaches, sluggishness, or aches and pains, but this is a sign foreign agents are leaving your body. Drink plenty of water and follow the six steps listed below to naturally eliminate fluoride from your system.

1) Get Adequate Iodine

Iodine is an important element for the normal metabolism of cells, especially thyroid hormones. It pushes the fluoride from your body via urine. Some good sources of iodine include seaweed (nori, dulse, wakame, etc…), cranberries, organic yogurt, potatoes, organic strawberries, and organic navy beans.

2) Consume More Boron

Boron is a natural element that helps flush fluoride from your body. Boron-rich foods include most nuts, dates, prunes, honey, broccoli, bananas, and avocado.

3) Eat Some Tamarind

This African fruit and spice is used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine. It can be used in a tincture or tea to cleanse the body of fluoride.

4) Increase Magnesium/Calcium Intake

Most people are deficient in magnesium because the soils have been depleted of this mineral through modern agricultural methods. It plays an important role, however, in the metabolism and synthesis of nutrients within your cells. It also inhibits the absorption of fluoride into your cells. Along with magnesium, calcium seems to help attract fluoride away from bones and teeth, allowing the body to eliminate it.
Both should be taken together, and this can easily be accomplished by consuming dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, avocados, organic yogurt, bananas, dried fruit, and dark chocolate.

5) General Liver Cleanse

The most important step to detoxify from excess fluoride may be to cleanse your liver. The liver is responsible for over 400 functions in the body, and when it gets overburdened, a number of symptoms may manifest. Because fluoride isn’t a product found naturally in the body, some sources claim that it may get stuck in the liver.
If you drink lemon water upon rising and eat liver-friendly foods, such as garlic, turmeric, lemons, limes, and avocado, your body will have an easier time removing heavy metals and toxins.

6) Sit In A Sauna

Saunas are great for ridding your body of toxins, as they inspire the body to sweat them out. The penetrating heat feels good, as well. Just be sure to drink plenty of water before and after to prevent dehydration. If you have any medical conditions, consult your healthcare provider first.

And while I am a huge proponent of decadent, sugary, over-the-top desserts, if you are going to eat sweets as much as me, you’ve gotta find ways to make it healthy and healthful…especially when in the middle of whole foods cleanse.
A couple years ago I was completely unaware that such a thing as raw desserts existed. Flour and sugar seemed necessary in any good treat.  And then I had a cashew-based raw chocolate cheesecake while visiting friends in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I was BLOWN AWAY. I had no idea what someone could do with some nuts, fruit, seeds, cacao powder (and a Vitamix). After that cheesecake, I went home and started experimenting on my own. For a while, my countertops were covered with soaking nuts and my freezer filled with experiments. I was learning how to make creamy mousses and crisp cookies and within a few months of that first dessert, I was working on my ebook, In the Raw. I was hooked on raw. 
Nowadays I don’t do much with raw. The focus of this blog has become more centered on savory and my Vitamix is used mostly for smoothies and soup. But every once in awhile, when the craving hits, I pull out some cashews and toss them in soaking water and fall into amazement all over again. 
These vegan Coconut Cream Pies is adapted from a Banana Cream Pie recipe that you can find in my ebook and one of my favorite desserts ever. The coconut cream base is made up of cashews, bananas, and coconut for an incredibly rich & creamy texture. Created with only whole foods and sweetened with just 2 tablespoons of maple syrup in the entire batch, you won’t believe the decadence of the healthy dessert. 
Delicious, healthy, and kid approved.

Anti-cancer diet: Five superfoods that fight cancer naturally!

New Delhi: Cancer cases are rising at an alarming rate in India, mainly due to the lack of awareness about the disease. It is believed that 70 percent of cancer cases in India are preventable. But unfortunately, fewer people still know that cancer can be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle.
It is estimated that 14.5 lakh people are living with cancer in India, with over 7 lakh new cases being registered each year and 5,56,400 deaths which are said to be related to the disease.
Cancer, if detected early, can be cured in most cases.
If you worry about getting cancer, the first thing you can do is to take steps that can help prevent it or reduce your risk, which may include changes in your diet and lifestyle. 
Here are five foods that may reduce your risk of developing cancer:


All cruciferous veggies contain cancer-fighting properties, but broccoli has a sizable amount of sulforaphane - a compound that researchers say can help prevent cancer or slow down its progression.


Tomato can claim to be the king of cancer-fighting foods. It contains a phytochemical called lycopene that not only gives it the red colour, but also helps prevent heart disease, also reduces the risk of certain cancers. Tomatoes are also a good source of vitamins A, C, and E - - all of which are enemies of cancer-friendly free radicals.


Both blueberries and strawberries contain high amounts of antioxidants that fight cancer. Besides, they are also rich in vitamin C, vitamin A and gallic acid, a powerful antifungal/antiviral agent that boosts immunity.


Curcumin, the active compound in the spice turmeric, has been shown to have anti-cancer effects. Turmeric consumption is also credited with an enhanced ability to fight inflammation.


This culinary favourite has been used to treat and cure many health problems, including cancer, for ages. According to the American Cancer Society, garlic contains substances that can help cancer cells die off. It has been revealed in both animal studies and cell culture studies that garlic may reduce the growth rates of cancerous tumours.

New hope for children with chronic fatigue and ME!

A new therapy that blends osteopathy and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) can help children with mild chronic fatigue syndrome and ME, a study has found.
The Lightning Process offers an effective alternative to standard treatment for a problem that affects nearly 3 percent of all children, who miss, on average, a year's schooling.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is the standard treatment for chronic fatigue and ME (myalgic encephalitis), but children who have CBT with the Lightning Process see a much faster and greater improvement in symptoms such as fatigue and anxiety. After a year, they also suffer less depression and their school attendance has improved, say researchers from the University of Bristol.
In a trial that involved 100 secondary school children aged between 12 and 18, half of whom had CBT plus the Lightning Process and the rest just had CBT, and their progress was monitored after six and 12 months.
Even though the Lightning Process isn't available on the National Health Service and a course costs around £620, it's still good value, the researchers reckon.
It's the first randomized trial into Lightning Process, which was developed by osteopath Phil Parker, and was initiated after lead researcher Esther Crawley had been asked about it by many parents.
Most now accept that CFS is a physical condition, often brought about after a viral infection, and the Lightning Process works with body movements to stimulate the brain to open up healing neural pathways.

The Secret To Fighting Inflammation Is Hiding In Your Pantry!

Photo: Nataša Mandić
It’s late summer, the light is amber gold, and every green thing pulses with life. I keep the Kale & Caramel cookbook herbal chart close at hand, deciphering the healing properties and flavor profiles of every herb and flower I meet. As summer transitions to fall, I lean into richer flavors and herbs that carry deep healing properties—and sage, with its deceptively powerful anti-inflammatory benefits, comes into focus.
Whether in fresh leaves or dried, oil or extract, sage's pungent aroma and phytochemical makeup are as powerful in culinary uses as they are in anti-inflammatory applications. From the Latin salvare—"to save"—sage has been used for centuries to strengthen the respiratory system, ease congestion, and support overall well-being. While the mere mention of sage may conjure visions of Thanksgiving stuffing and pseudo-shamanic space-clearing rituals, the herb’s applications are wide-ranging. Let’s look at sage in the kitchen, in its aromatherapeutic applications, and in its full glory as an anti-inflammatory healer.

Sage in the kitchen.

Sage is from the mint family and is related to other common herbs like rosemary and thyme. That said, its flavor has a unique depth and softness that lends itself to pairing with nuts, cheeses, root vegetables, winter squash, and alliums. It’s no wonder we look to sage for holiday celebrations. Try pairing sage with savory-sweet combos, like apples and oatmeal, potatoes and pumpkin, goat cheese, honey, and persimmon.

Sage aromatherapy.

Whether its aroma is expressed through stovetop heat, a steeped tea, or a ritual burn, the scent of sage is purifying and stimulating. The proof is in the sniffing: Let a few deep breaths of sage’s earthy fragrance ground, calm, and stabilize—preparing you for transitions in seasons and life.

Sage as a healer.

Like its plant relative rosemary, sage contains rosmarinic acid, a phytochemical that has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine writes that sage is a "natural source of flavonoids and polyphenolic compounds…possessing strong antioxidant, radical-scavenging, and antibacterial activities."

These Gummy Bears Are Practically A Superfood

Gear up for a bold statement, because here it comes: Gummy candy is the future of food. Stop shouting at your computer, and hear me out. Two geniuses just figured out how to turn the candy into a health supplement — and, excuse the turn of phrase, but I literally can't even.
Matcha Bears, which is halfway to its goal of raising $15,000 on Kickstarter, are (you guessed it) matcha-flavored gummy bears. But they don't just taste like tea; they pack the benefits of glass-like antioxidants and a boost in focus and endurance — ten times over. That's not an exaggeration: Two Matcha Bears contain the same amount of antioxidants as a cup of matcha powder or 10 cups of the tea.
The bears were a clap back to all the edible forms of matcha that are super unhealthy. All those muffins and cookies that are spiked with the green stuff also pack a ton of sugar. Two gummies (the recommended daily serving) only have a total of 4.4 grams of sugar. Matcha purists can rest easy knowing this isn't some gimmick that won't follow through. The bears are made with 100% ceremonial-grade imperial matcha, and they're pretty much allergen-free. There's no gluten, nuts, milk, or soy on the ingredient list.
I mean, really. What will they think of next?

What Antioxidants The Brain Needs In Order To Function!

Antioxidants are substances contained in foods that help to maintain cell health and combat the unfavorable action of free radicals. These substances improve memory and help the brain function properly. Five daily servings of fruits and vegetables, enough whole grains and fresh foods provide the necessary antioxidants that our body needs.

We need to check your diet to make sure we have a high intake of crucial antioxidants, namely:

1. Beta carotene from oranges, yellow fruits and vegetables such as carrots and pumpkins;
2. Vitamin C found in citrus and forest fruits, in green and red peppers, as well as in green leafy vegetables;
3. Vitamin E present in nuts and seeds, whole grains and fatty fish;
4. Selenium found in nuts, eggs, and whole grains;
5. Zinc found in fish, vegetables and almonds.

The intake of antioxidants can be increased by using natural supplements.

As today is National Fitness Day I thought you may be interested in this:

Ah, Autumn, time to crank up the heating and hunker down until summer comes along again, right? Actually, whilst the days might be getting shorter and the weather decidedly chilly, it’s important to maintain your health and fitness throughout the Autumn/Winter - it will stop that panic to lose weight when Summer does come back around.
 BRITISH and NATIONAL WRESTLING CHAMPION, and OWNER of RIGHT PATH FITNESS - KEITH MCNIVEN tells us his 5 tips for maintaining your Summer body:

1. Set your goals. We all know the saying ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail’. Give yourself challenging, but achievable, goal posts. Embrace the new season with an app like Goal Tracker, where you can plan for everything from losing weight to reading a book!

2. Change your outlook. There’s nothing like a jog in Autumn, with the crunch of fresh fallen leaves under your feet. Getting outdoors for a fast walk or run will not only have physical benefits but emotional and psychological ones too, as you witness for yourself the glorious change of the British season.

3. Get kitted out. The kids are all back at school decked out in their new clobber, so make a new start for yourself on the fitness front with some new training gear to motivate you. You don’t have to get a whole new work-out wardrobe but opt for thin layers that will keep out the chill of the autumn air.

4. Make your own soup. The salad season might be gone but rejoice because the soup season is here and it’s a lot easier to make than you might think! Kale comes into season in September and is packed with nutrients and powerful antioxidants. All you need it brown oil and garlic - add washed kale and any other green vegetables with vegetable stock then simmer for 15 minutes before blending.

5. Switch your timetable. If the darker nights mean you’re less inclined to exercise after work, change your routine by adding a midday workout. 30-minute high-intensity blasts and one-to-one sessions with a personal trainer are achievable during your lunch-break.

Natural or Synthetic Supplements & Why It Matters

Do you know the real reason you eat?

It’s not because you’re hungry or because you’re having a craving for a burger or chocolate. We eat for two main reasons: nutrients and energy. However, many of the foods we eat don’t provide us with either. We have become so inclined to buy the cheapest foods that last the longest. The problem lies in the fact that foods that are cooked or processed normally contain little to no nutrient value. This is the reason that the supplement aisle at your local pharmacy and grocery store exists.

The bad news?

Not all supplements are created equal. Approximately 90% of the supplements sold on the shelves of health food stores are literally ground up rocks and minerals. Just like it’s important to consider ingredient lists on foods, you should do the same when buying vitamins.  The accepted view is that synthetic nutrients are almost chemically identical to those found in food. The problem is that it is still unclear how your body actually absorbs these nutrients.

When you eat whole foods you aren’t consuming only a single nutrient, you’re consuming the nutrient plus a range of vitamins, minerals, co-factors, and enzymes that allow for optimal use within the body. What you don’t realize is that while scientists are trying to “re-create” vitamins in a lab, Mother Nature has already figured out the perfect balance of nutrients in foods.

Nutrients need each other to be properly absorbed, so isolating one vitamin isn’t going to get you very far. For example, there are over 200 nutrients in a carrot. The food is perfectly balanced so that we receive the full benefit of the vitamins found within. When you think of an orange you probably think of Vitamin C.   However, all of the “little guys” found in an orange are just as necessary in order to absorb and utilize the Vitamin C. Also, in nature, the nutrients are never found in mega-doses like “10,000mg of Vitamin C.”
Vitamin C is a perfect example of a supplement that is almost always in the synthetic form of ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is a man-made chemical that is not found anywhere in nature. It is created by applying high heat, pressure, and chemicals to sugar extracted from cornstarch, which turns the sugar into ascorbic acid. Before you assume a vitamin is natural ask yourself, “Is there an ascorbic acid plant, animal, or pond where I could find Vitamin C?” If the answer is no, the supplement is synthetic.

“The same minerals that cause scum to build up in your shower is what you may be consuming in your supplements today.” – Dr. Josh Axe

Another example is calcium. There are many different forms of calcium including calcium carbonate, calcium citrate, calcium chelate, etc. These are all synthetic forms of calcium that could damage your long-term health. Most calcium supplements do very little to protect bones and can actually increase the risk for heart disease. The reason is that the calcium in most calcium supplements comes from calcium carbonate (finely ground limestone rock) and your body is only able to absorb a small percentage of that. The rest is either excreted or can bind to the plaque on your arteries causing “calcification” of the arteries, which can eventually lead to stroke or heart attack.

So how do vitamin companies get away with claiming these vitamins are “natural” or “pharmaceutical grade?”

Many “natural” supplements are composed of mostly man-made ingredients and then the manufacturer adds one organic ingredient like soy or alfalfa, which allows them to use the word “natural” or “whole food based.”
Many companies boast that their supplements are pharmaceutical grade, which literally means that they are highly processed and not natural. The definition of the word pharmaceutical is “a compound manufactured for use as a medicinal drug.”
One of the main problems is that we are hard-wired to believe that more is better. That’s not always the case when it comes to your nutrition. For example, many people take thiamine (Vitamin B1) for energy. But too much of it can actually lead to fatigue. Causing you to take even more of the vitamin. This is how the vicious cycle starts. Take supplements to treat the effects of supplements.
Unfortunately, we have to keep in mind that the supplement industry is just like any other industryThe main goal is to make as much money as possible while spending the least money possible. These companies spend very little on the product itself and millions on marketing them.

We hate to break this to you, but if you are taking synthetic supplements, you basically just have expensive urine.

This means that your body physically cannot absorb those ingredients so you are just flushing them out. This is why it is EXTREMELY important for you to learn the difference between a truly all natural supplement and a synthetic supplement.

How to determine if your supplements are food-based or synthetic:

  1. Read the ingredients

    • Typically ingredients that end in “ic,” “ate,” or “acid” are synthetic
    • Examples: ascorbic acid, potassium gluconate, calcium citrate
  2.   Quality over quantity:

    • More isn’t always better.  Keep in mind, Mother Nature has already figured out the perfect balance of nutrients in foods.
    • Small amounts of Vitamin C from oranges or cherry extract is better than large amounts of Vitamin C as ascorbic acid.
  3. Consider Price

    • As with anything, you typically get what you pay for; it’s pretty inexpensive to pulverize rock and put it into pill form.
    • All natural vitamins, from whole food sources, will generally be pricier, but you will be able to utilize and absorb the nutrients found in the vitamin.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates

— At the Ankh Rah, we chose to take the most natural, holistic approach when formulating our supplements rather than selling supplements that are made up of chemicals. In every supplement we formulate we follow this rule: “Who knows better than Mother Nature?” —
So it’s time to start prioritizing your health. Don’t always buy the cheapest options available when it comes to your nutrition. Before you put anything into your body you should ask yourself, “will this give me nutrients or energy?” If the answer is no, DO NOT put it into your body. It’s that simple.

At the end of the day, if you don’t take care of your body, where are you going to live?
