Heavy Metals, Chelation, and Cilantro

The traditional method for removing heavy metals from the body is the use of an intravenous chelating agent such as EDTA.

Dr. Yoshiaki Omura reports that coriander leaves, also known as Chinese parsley or cilantro, acts as a potent natural chelating agent for heavy metals such as lead, aluminum and mercury (Acupunct Electrother Res 95;20(3-4):195-229, Acupunct Electrother Res 96;21(2):133-160). A couple of teaspoons of cilanto everyday (preferrably with an oil such as olive oil) for 2 or 3 weeks seems to purge the heavy metals from the nervous system and body tissues just as well as the intravenous agents.

In particular, Omura comments on the dangers inherent in dental amalgam removal (significant mercury is absorbed into the body even when suitable precautions are taken), and the need for chelation therapy after such removal. See the articles (Medline) for more info.

Coriander is listed as neutral for all blood types, and I presume this includes the leaves.
