How to detox your body from GMOs and Pesticides

detox from gmo and pesticides

Detoxing can be hard on your body and cause a wide variety of alarming side effects. After all, the substances being removed are usually pretty horrible, consisting of toxic chemicals from pesticide residues, by-products of GMO foods, pharmaceutical drugs, chemotherapy residue, free-radicals, heavy metals, aluminum, radiation.

There are numerous detoxing agents and methods available — some more costly than others — and some producing very intense experiences with potentially dangerous side effects. We advise choosing a more natural method.

However, there are several ways to remove these noxious substances gently, with kindness to your system. These techniques may take a bit longer to achieve completion that some the harsher detox programs; however, if you take your time one or more of these natural methods should work for you.


Fruit pectin is probably the most gentle method of detoxing contaminants. Pectin comes from the fibrous portion of the fruit and is most commonly found in the pith of limes, lemons and other citrus fruit as well as in apples. Other sources of pectin are bananas, grapes, carrots, and cabbage. Pectin helps to release heavy metals, chemicals and other substances into the blood stream, where it binds to them and flushes them from the body. Simply eating fruit high in pectin will help to cleanse your system, or you can add a pectin product to a glass of water, organic grape juice or fresh veggie juice to speed the detox process. Beware of pectin sold in grocery stores, as some brands may contain MSG. Check health food stores for the best products.


The delicious culinary herb cilantro, happens to be one of the most effective and gentle detoxifiers of mercury, heavy metals and other toxic contaminants. You can buy cilantro juice at health food stores or simply include the fresh herb in your diet as pesto or seasoning to control the amount consumed and limit unwanted side effects. It’s inexpensive and works without the addition of man-made chemicals. Cilantro also possesses antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, quickly reducing infection and inflammation as it works to clear your system.


Chlorella is a single cell algae sea vegetable that grows in fresh water. Some of the best cholrella reserves have come from Japan; however, use caution when buying Japanese chlorella due to possible exposure to radiation from Fukushima. Chlorella is an easy-to-digest superfood best known for being able to remove mercury and other heavy metals from the cells. Too much chlorella can produce side effects — mostly in the digestive tract — where it works best to bind to mercury, eliminating it. Start with the lowest quantity and work up slowly for a gentle detox.


Juicing fresh produce and grasses such as wheat or barley grass provides an excellent way to remove toxins from the system. Wheatgrass is high in nutritional content, and provides vitamins, minerals and all nine essential amino acids. Wheatgrass can be a powerful detox, so start slowly with only a small amount of juice to keep it gentle — 1/2 ounce a day — and work up to avoid symptoms.

Using gentle detoxing products requires that you repeat treatments over a period of time until all symptoms have cleared. Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, muscle aches and pains, dizziness and fatigue. Additionally, detoxing can cause a flare-up in your condition temporarily. It’s just the toxins leaving your system and should pass shortly. If side effects are severe, reduce the quantity of whatever you’re using to detox. If the symptoms continue, stop and consult your natural health practitioner for further instructions.

  1. As I get older, I find that I crave parsley and fruit more and more; I believe it’s because my body needs to detox synthetic fragrances mostly (they’re the worst, and they’re every where; I wish people would stop buying them). I prefer Italian parsley instead of cilantro.

  2. A new formula of seed extract that was 20 years in the making has finally become available. GMO is known to cause inflammation and set people up for cancers. For years Doctors did research at the University of Minnesota Medical School to find something to restore immunity for children coming off chemotherapy. They found it on theses 3 seeds that were superior to anything else. They are Black cumin seeds, Chardonnay grape seeds and Black raspberry seeds. This one guy had a leukemia tumor the size of base ball and after drinking the botanical seed formula its just about all gone. – Our Soul is a stronger formula because it also has D-Ribose very good for your Heart, Brains and Eyes. – I invite you to research this.

  3. I did one back in May for a week (Detox Divas) as a kick start to weightloss and healthier eating and haven’t looked back since! Have lost 22 lbs. so far! Have lots of energy and feel great! No powders or mixes, just eating whole foods. Detox consisted of eating just fruits and veggies and drinking water. No oils, no suagr, no salt. First day is a fast. Only water to drink. Check out Detox Diva.

  4. “pesticides, toxins, and other junk” – What doesn’t kill ya makes ya stronger. That’s the only thing keeping me alive at this point. “Did you hear about the guy who gave up alcohol, smoking, sex, and eating? His health was great until he killed himself.” – Carson

  5. My blood tests always come back with a very low sodium count which can affect the brain, my DR says I’m drinking TOO much water, what’s a girl to do??? He wants me to replace the intake of water with juices, I have severe post nasal drip due to acid reflux decese and am limited on choices of juice, any answers

  6. The title to this article is misleading. Most of the damage done by GMOs can not be detoxed. It destroys your gut! I find it appalling that articles like this make people think they can continue to eat their crap if they add this stuff too.

  8. I would be careful of the wheatgrass. The hybridisation of wheat resulting in the dwarf wheat which is the majority of the wheat grown commercially today, has resulted in changes to amylopectin A, and it’s really not good for you. Perhaps if one got hold of an old wheat variety, or spelt wheat, it wouldn’t be so damaging to health.

  9. Or. You can join me and thousands of others in nutritional cleansing. Safe, healthy and yummy! Text me! Or go to. Where we never use stimulants, gmo’s or gluten as well as no herbicides/ pesticides!

  10. Detoxing is indeed harmful, because it uses stimulants and chemicals. Thus defeats the purpose.

  12. Although I agree with all the wonderful sources of detox cited in this article, I’m not convinced we can “detox” from GMOs. They have actually found the Round-Up gene in human intestine cells from those who have ingested GMO foods. Not sure any detox substance can eradicate a gene from your system. What a horrible, deadly problem the GMOs are!

  13. Yes, sometimes the detox can be worse, the herx reaction crept up on me a time or two (I almost passed out) when I was eating too much greens! My chelation is made of cilantro, bee pollen, sea weeds, maca, among other natural herbs from my herbalist. Before that it was colon cleanse made from apple pectin, bentonite clay, activated charcoal, fennel, and pysllium husk (I believe that’s all). Along with eating organic from local co-ops, pain/stress relief and minding my psychological and spiritual state, I can confidently say I am on my way to health at 30 🙂

  14. I like a product from FoodScience of Vermont called Superior Greens. Very complete and it includes non dairy probiotics, probiotics and fiber. For a greens drink mix it actually tastes really good
