NDF Plus: Removing Environmental Toxins and Restore Cell Integrity
By Stephanie Ray, BCN
This is part 7 in our series: The Total Body Detox
We are all electrical beings. When heavy metals are present, they disturb how energy travels through our body. The cells in a heavy metal and chemical toxic body are similar to a low battery, unable to hold a charge or maintain healthy cellular function.
When an individual has a "Low Battery Focus", (“LBF”)they experience assimilation issues due to environmental pollution depleting our cell's ability to respond to other cells and utilize food and supplements appropriately. Toxic metals displace beneficial nutrients such as zinc, calcium and magnesium.
How Do You Know If You Have a Low Battery Focus?
Individuals who have a “Low Battery Focus” may have the following:
- Need a nap daily
- Indigestion after eating
- Intolerance to perfumes
- Sensitivity to electrical equipment
Some individuals are constitutionally strong or great excretors of heavy metals and other forms of environmental pollutants, and do not experience a “LBF”. Unfortunately, it is impossible to avoid exposure to heavy metals today. They are found in abundance in products we use, touch, breathe in and ingest every day.
Sources of Environmental Toxins
- Preservatives in vaccinations
- Silver amalgam fillings (50% mercury)
- Water supply
- Personal care products like anti-perspirant
- Garden fertilizers
- House paints
- Light bulbs
- Fire retardants on our children's pajamas
The body is intelligent and designed to naturally detox itself of anything it deems harmful. However, those with a “Low Battery Focus” have a limited ability to remove toxins an individual is exposed to daily. So, supporting the body with additional fermented foods and herbs is an easy way to assist the “LBF” person in excreting them.
Enter NDF Plus®. NDF Plus is a dietary supplement that increases the excretion of heavy metals and chemicals and provides extra cellular support. The health benefits include:
- Improved ability to detox
- Increased vitality, energy and focus
- Decreased brain fog
- Improved tolerance of environment
- Removal of toxic metals including lead, mercury, arsenic, uranium, thallium, cadmium, antimony and aluminum
- Removal of chemicals and pesticides including lindane, dioxin, BPA, phthalates and chlorine
- Balancing of essential nutrients as it contains naturally occurring amino acids, vitamins and minerals
- Elimination of excessive histamine response
- Balanced cell life due to its antioxidant and free-radical scavenger properties as well as its naturally occurring fulvic acid
Mitigating Neurodevelopmental Symptoms in Children Through Detoxification - A Six Week Detoxification Study with NDF Plus
Nine children, between the age of 2 - 14 years old, with neurodevelopmental issues of varying degrees were participants in this study group. Symptomatology included: lack of eye contact, cognitive impairment, brain fog, lack of appetite, food aversions, deficit in social skills, inability to follow directions, low energy, unaware of environment, nonverbal, dark circles under eyes, sluggish bowels, underweight, absence of imaginary play, sensory issues and self-stimulatory behaviors.
All children were evaluated using the ATEC which measures four areas or subtests: I.Speech/Language Communication; II. Sociability; III. Sensory/Cognitive Awareness; and IV. Health/Physical/Behavior. Overall results for the group (pre-left; post-right): Eight out of nine participants improved. Total improvement overall was 25%. The group initially had two participants that were classified as mild (22%), five classified as moderate (56%), and two classified as severe (22%). After six weeks of intervention, the group was comprised of three participants classified as mild (33%), six classified as moderate (67%), and zero classified as severe (0%).
Support Detox with Movement
In addition to benefits like healthy cardiovascular function, healthy bone density, strength, flexibility and joint mobilization, exercise also increases blood and lymph circulation. Your blood and lymphatic fluids distribute essential nutrients to your cells and remove metabolic waste and other toxic substances from your cells. If you don’t move, neither does the lymph.
One of the biggest benefits of exercise is the reduction of excess body fat. Fatty tissues actually clog the arteries, increase blood pressure and put additional strain on the heart. Your body will also store toxins in fat. Reducing these fat deposits during a detox protocol inherently reduces toxin levels in your body. Any type of aerobic exercise that gets your whole body moving and your body fluids circulating at an increased rate will benefit you. Exercising just 30 minutes a day, three times a week is all it takes to make a significant impact.
Support detoxification by choosing foods that support the process.
Foods that help detoxification:
- Cilantro, parsley and other herbs
- Wild blueberries
- Lemon and lime
- Green tea
- Flax and chia seeds
Fermented foods Foods to avoid:
- Fish, especially larger fish and farmed fish
- Non-organic foods
Cleansing Green Tea
- 1 organic green tea bag
- 1 t honey
- 1 T fresh lime juice
- 3 - 4 mint leaves, torn
- 1/2 t grated ginger
- 6 drops of NDF Plus®
Add all ingredients to mug, pour in 8 - 10 oz hot water and stir. Leave tea to steep according to directions on bag. Enjoy!
