When I do hair tests and heavy metals show up high for the cat, dog or horse being tested I put them on an effective Detox protocol utilizing individualized supplements and Homeopathic remedies but there is ONE detox heavy metals herb that I’d like to share with you that everyone can use for their animals that is safe and effective to add to the detoxing tool box…The herb is CILANTRO and similarly Parsley can work very well too but for the sake of the discussion we’ll use organic Cilantro.
Cilantro has been used extensively for detoxifying heavy metals like Aluminum, Mercury, Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic and so on. One should always be careful however as with any detoxing if your pet starts to have detox symptoms and feel worse stop and give a break. Always work with your Holistic Vet to be able to monitor these things.
With that said. Here’s the Cilantro Herbal Detox
- Take 1 cup of tightly packed ORGANIC Cilantro and put in food processor with the following.
- 6 TBS of ORGANIC Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
- 3 TBS of ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar.
- 1 clove or ORGANIC garlic.
Process and then freeze in the ice cube tray to defrost as needed.
Cats and dogs under 10 lbs should get about 1/4 tsp once or twice daily. A 50 lb dog would get a good teaspoon once or twice daily and large breeds 2 teaspoons 1-2 x a day.
For horses you can give 1-2 TBS 2 x daily as well.
I recommend doing this for about 7 days at a time unless given specific instructions from a Holistic Vet.
As with any detoxing…there is no ONE wonder product that does it all…there are many natural products such as Spirulina, Kelp, Garlic, Apple Cider Vinegar as well as supplements that do a great job but also need to be given in tandem to make sure more than one toxin is being addressed and the support of the rest of the body is taken into consideration otherwise efficacy goes down and detox symptoms go up.
If in doubt ask me… 🙂
