Delicious Cilantro Pesto Chelation Recipe Removes Heavy Metals (and Fallout Radiation) from Your Body

fresh coriander - cilantro pesto ingredients
easy-to-make, delicious cilantro pesto chelation recipe that removes heavy metals (and fallout radiation) from the body.

In light of this past week’s Japanese triple-whammy tragedies: a massive 9.0M earthquake, followed by a devastating tsunami, and now the spiraling out-of-control nuclear plant explosions, thought I would post this excellent, easy-to-make, delicious cilantro pesto chelation recipe that removes heavy metals (and fallout radiation) from the body.

The prevailing winds (the jet stream) are sweeping plumes of radioactive isotopes into the Pacific and carrying those toxic materials eastward towards Alaska, Canada, the west coast of the USA. We’re likely to experience some fallout here in Washington, Oregon, and California…and elsewhere as those winds circle the globe.

An essential oils buddy and bodyworker, Terri Moon, originally shared it with us on an earlier reincarnation of The site was hacked and I hadn’t gotten around to posting the recipe again. But NOW, is definitely the time for it!

It’s delicious! You won’t be disappointed.

Delicious Chelation Pesto Recipe Removes Heavy Metals
(and Fallout Radiation from Your Body)

Heavy metal poisoning is insidious and all too common. It has been implicated in hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression, food allergies, susceptibility to parasites, and the list goes on.

The main ingredient of the following recipe: CILANTRO (aka: fresh coriander / Chinese parsley)  is probably the most powerful natural chelating agent around.

C’s COMMENT: Besides being a renown culinary herb in Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Mexican cuisines ~ Cilantro has a long 7000 years history as a medicinal herb. And appropriately for this site, both the fresh greenery & seeds are resources of powerfully healing essential oils. Cilantro contains chemical compounds that bind to the heavy metals, loosening them from the tissues, blood and organs. Cilantro’s chemical compounds then aid transport of these harmful substances out of the body through elimination.

The following recipe combines cilantro with other ingredients that have a synergistic effect. They cleanse the tissues by increasing the urinary excretion of mercury, lead and aluminum. This great recipe is not only easy-to-make, but delicious on toast, baked potatoes and pasta. You just might want to make it a regular part of your diet!

Two teaspoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to substantially clear these toxic metals from the body.

It is recommended to repeat this cleanse as a preventative measure at least once a year for three weeks.

Coriander Chelation Pesto:

Please use Organic INGREDIENTS

Garlic, 4 cloves
Brazil Nuts (selenium), 1/3 cup
Sunflower Seeds (cysteine), 1/3 cup

Flaxseed Oil, 2/3 cup
Lemon Juice (Vitamin C), 4 tablespoons
Dulse Powder (Seaweed), 2 tsp

  1. Thank you for your lovely post!

    Do you know if there’s such a thing as cilantro essential oil OR if coriander oil will suffice?

    I’m looking to get everything in essential oil form so I can create a heavy metal chelating product from combining natural ingredients to create an easy-to-use essential oil product.

    Please share your thoughts, it would be of great help.

    • Samir ~ Thanks for your interest in helping folks regain their health. I am NOT an expert in the chemistry & healing properties of cilantro (leaves/stems) vs coriander (the seeds). And I do not know if the fresh leaves/stems are used to make essential oil?

      I don’t know where you are based and what essential oil companies’ products you are familiar with, but you could certainly inquire of companies you trust. There are companies in Asia that make essential oils and who may know. The key is to find reputable ones that work from organic or clean wild-crafted raw materials.

      Many of our edible herbs / spices are healing, precisely because of their potency…so I would advise great caution in working with the concentrated essential oils. And it would be an excellent idea to have several authoritative reference books in your library to work from.

      Good-Luck with your product!

  2. Hi Cynthe,

    Wow. Thank you so much for your fast reply and helpful words!

    Your suggestion is wonderful, manufacturers in Asia whom produce 100% organic and steam distilled oils will be a great source for ingredients needed to create a heavy metal chelating oil.

    In regards to potency and concentration, you’re absolutely right. This is why I believe an oil would be so beneficial. I will certainly be doing some research in the coming days!

    Take care and I look forward to reading more from your website.
