You alkalinize your body by taking in green-leafy vegetable juices, which increase the blood's electricity. Electricity increases the solubility of the blood. The more solubility in the blood, the more undigested and misappropriated minerals it can suspend, remove and metabolize or chelate. Chlorophyll and the alkaline compound in green-leafy vegetables combine with heavy metals and foreign chemicals in the body to form salts, allowing the body to eliminate them from the system. I have coached and worked wtih many people who have overcome mercury and chemical poisoning by eating raw plants foods, especially green-vegetable juice and certain supplements such as digestive and metabolic enzymes, powdered raw vitamin C–containing berries (such as camu camu berry) and MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane), a biologically available from of powdered sulfur, as well as a teaspoon of chlorella with a shot of straight cilantro juice drank three times a day.
