A known neurotoxin – aluminum has been linked to autism in children and Alzheimer’s disease in older adults. In fact, according to Dr. Christine Schaffner, this dangerous substance is currently the number one toxin found among her patients suffering from metals exposure – ahead of mercury and lead. Keep in mind, there is absolutely no (good) reason to have this material inside the human body.
Dr. Schaffner reports that our detoxification abilities have not caught up yet to the challenges facing us – due to all these harmful chemicals we get exposed to every day. When you consider the true toxicity of aluminum – you quickly see why neurological problems are on the rise.
Discover why aluminum toxicity is so dangerous and what to do about it. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Christine Schaffner talk about the negative effects of aluminum toxicity and, more importantly, how to naturally rid the body of this health threat. If you suffer from brain fog, depression or any other chronic (inflammatory) condition – do NOT miss this educational program filled with solutions.

Aluminum paired with glyphosate is a double threat to human health
Although natural health experts have long sounded the alarm on the dangers of aluminum in food and vaccines, Dr. Schaffner is particularly concerned about the use of glyphosate – the active ingredient in Roundup weed-killer – and its ability to potentiate aluminum, thereby worsening its negative health effects.
Both glyphosate and aluminum interfere with enzymes that have an important role in producing melatonin – the hormone responsible for restful sleep. And restful sleep is important for the function of the glymphatic system – or glial-dependent lymphatic system – a brain-wide pathway of dural lymphatic vessels that helps to detoxify the brain during periods of sleep.
In fact, a dysfunctional or damaged glymphatic system can result in the production of large amounts of amyloid beta, which is linked to many forms of dementia.
Dr. Schaffner reports that glyphosate can actually increase the uptake of aluminum in the gut, damaging the pineal gland and blocking the absorption of vital trace minerals. Glyphosate also damages the lining of the intestinal wall, thereby increasing intestinal permeability and allowing aluminum to cross over and enter the bloodstream.
Bottom line: we MUST remove aluminum from the body as quickly (and safely) as possible. Join us for the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour and find out how to detoxify the body – naturally.
Safe and natural detoxification is possible with the right information
To help reverse aluminum toxicity, Dr. Schaffner advises low-dose immunotherapy, with antioxidant support from natural substances such as acai, pomegranate, vitamin C, selenium and vitamin E.
Chlorella, liposomal silica, horsetail, and a silica-based binder called Enterosgel may also be used, along with a cilantro tincture three times a day and ionic footbaths twice a week.
The importance of a fresh, organic diet can’t be overstated, says Dr. Schaffner, who advises a miso and cilantro soup for heavy metal detox. Lymph draining, dry brushing, castor oil packs and coffee enemas are also generally well-tolerated, low-cost options for detox.
To repair damage to the glymphatic system, Dr. Schaffner often recommends a regime of liposomal melatonin, along with soft lymphatic drainage massage – in which tissues of the neck are manipulated to help drain lymph.
Simply put, if you’re suffering with major health issues, it’s extremely important that you work with a well-trained, integrative healthcare provider to oversee the detoxification process. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, we’ll detail what you need to know about safe detox protocols plus much more.
