Cilantro Chelation Pesto

Cilantro has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser.


  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1/3 cup Brazil nuts

  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 2 cups packed fresh cilantro (coriander, Chinese parsley)

  • 2/3 cup flaxseed oil

  • 4 tbsp lemon juice

  • 2 tsp pulse (seaweed) powder

  • Sea salt to taste


  1. Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender until coriander is chopped.

  2. Add garlic, nuts, seeds, pulse, and lemon juice until mixture is finely blended into a paste.

  3. Add a pinch of sea salt to taste and blend again/

  4. Store in dark glass jars if possible. Freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last throughout the year.

Two tablespoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies. We can consider doing this cleanse for three weeks at least once a year. The pesto is delicious on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta.
