Dr Oz Has High Levels of Mercury – What About You?
Dr Oz has attributed his mercury levels to eating too much fish especially salmon and mackerel.
Mercury should be on the radar of everyone, especially, anyone that eats a lot fish but there are exposures are everywhere such as in the tap water from the mercury solder in our water pipes, dropping a thermostat, breaking a fluorescent light bulbs, etc.
Women in reproductive years should be especially conscious of this.
Symptoms of Heavy Mercury in Your Body:
But has Dr Oz in the past talked about arsenic in apple juice and rice.
This is just the tip of the iceberg – we are exposed to heavy metals in the air, in our water
We all should be concerned about heavy metals in our body, not just from eating fish.
Dr Oz has not endorsed Oral Chelation but it is something that there is a lot of literature that can help reduce the buildup of toxic heavy metals in your body.
Cleanse and detoxify your body of poisons, heavy metals, toxins, unwanted chemicals, etc… with a coffee enema.
The Gerson Therapy highly recommends coffee enemas to cleanse and then using a fresh diet of juices and organic produce to re-nourish the body.
The body can heal itself if given the proper tools (food) and time.

Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, has been a popular topic in health news of late. It has been shown time and again that there is an epidemic of Vitamin D3 deficiency in 75% of people. Well it’s true for me – I just had lab work done for my annual physical and my score was 27, even though I supplement daily. The normal range for your Vitamin D level should be between 32ng/ml-100ng/ml according to my doctor. I live in the northeastern United States and that alone is reason enough to be deficient because we do not get enough natural sunlight in the winter months.
What does sunlight have to do with your Vitamin D levels? Your skin has the ability to convert the suns rays into vitamin D in your body. It is the most natural way to boost your D levels. When you don’t get enough sunlight – you don’t get enough vitamin D. There are some great ways to get vitamin D through diet as well, but food alone will never give you the desired levels. Eating more nuts and fish, liver, fortified cereals, Vitamin D enriched foods, and using a D3 supplement can all increase levels but the UVB from the sun is the most effective, most reliable, most abundant and most natural source.
We have been told too often to avoid sun exposure and to always use a sunscreen to protect our skin, but you need to get sunlight on your bare skin. It is good to expose your skin without a sunscreen for about 15-20 minutes daily because that is the only way you can get the much needed light that coverts into Vitamin D. Of course, use common sense and don’t overexpose yourself as you can get too much sun.
Some of the health risks of a Vitamin D deficiency are: cancer, heart disease, diabetes, mental disorders, muscle weakness, kidney disease, increased cold & flu bugs, and more! Why is Vitamin D so important? How does it work in the body? Well, it acts more like a hormone than a vitamin. It improves and affects bodily functions on a cellular level as well as the metabolic channels throughout your body.
So, what are some of the benefits of proper Vitamin D levels?

Check with your doctor at your next physical and have your level tested. Having better Vitamin D levels in your body will make you feel better and also lessen your risks for unnecessary diseases and ailments. Enjoy the life giving forces of the sun!
