Dr. Yoshiaki Omura

Director of Medical Research at the Heart Disease Foundation in New York
Dr. Omura was treating several patients with a type of eye infection. He was using a standard antibiotic. Their symptoms would clear up… but they would return within a few months.
Dr. Omura discovered that the organisms causing the infection seemed to be hiding in parts of the body that had high concentrations of heavy metals like mercury, lead, and aluminum. It appeared that the organisms were using the metals to protect themselves from the antibiotics.
Heavy metals are excreted in the urine. So he began testing his patients’ urine. And he noticed that the mercury level in one patient’s urine increased after he ate a Vietnamese soup.
He identified an ingredient in the soup – a leaf – that was responsible for this effect - Chinese parsley -chpriander - Cilantro.
Japanese researchers studied its effects on lead. They gave mice lead in their drinking water for 32 days. Then they administered Chinese parsley for 25 days (from day seven on).
The conclusion: “Chinese parsley has suppressive activity on lead deposition, probably resulting from the chelation of lead by some substances contained in Chinese parsley.”
He recommends cilantro to remove mercury from the brain. He found that five grams per day was the minimum dose for chelation. That’s about one teaspoon. The treatment should be continued for at least two to three months.
You can buy fresh cilantro at the grocery store. It’s a common ingredient in Mexican, Caribbean, and Asian cooking.
The leaves can also be made into a tea. Chop eight or more teaspoons. Steep, covered, in a quart of boiling water for 20 minutes. But don’t do this in a metal container. Remember, cilantro is a powerful chelator. It will leach the metal into the tea.
