10 Natural ways how to remove fluoride from water (Part 1)
In today’s ever-changing world, we are constantly met with new challenges to maintain our equilibrium. Chemicals like herbicides, pesticides, neurotoxins and heavy metals are all infiltrating our daily lives through the food and water we consume. In this article we would take a deeper dive into how to remove fluoride from water.
Governments claim to be protecting us by pouring chemicals to ‘clean up’ our water supplies, but is that really helping? Most often groundwater is often of a far superior quality than that of municipal filtered water.
Many people are now opting to take control of their medical health and are researching online to learn how to avoid pharmaceutical drugs. In the same way, we must take control and learn how to avoid consuming these toxins that are slowly killing us and destroying our health.
Fluoride is one of the worst neurotoxins out there, and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has finally stood up and supported this statement. They are now beginning to take steps to prevent over exposure to fluoride by limiting the amount that can be added to our drinking water. The hoax of fluoridation being for the benefit of our dental health is now over.
Most countries worldwide have realised this years ago, and taken measures to stop their groundwater being poisoned on the way to the consumers house. Unfortunately, some countries like USA and Australia are still far behind on this area, and fluoridation is still a great issue of concern. The damaging effects of fluoride range from dental fluorosis, weakening of bone tissue, impaired kidney function and thyroid toxicity. It can be particularly dangerous for our growing children to over consume fluoride.
Knowing this, it is important to understand how we can combat this toxin. We will outline 10 natural ways how to remove fluoride from water, from your body and life.
In this article we will work through our first five suggestions and for the five remaining ways to naturally remove fluoride, stay tuned next week.
1. Liver Cleanse
One of the kindest things you can do to your body is regularly cleansing your liver.
Why? Because toxins get flushed out of your body via your liver, that’s its job. To ensure it manages to perform optimally, as with anything, you need to upkeep and maintain the trusty old worker to go about their job happily and without trouble.
A liver detox will also help you flush all the unwanted fluoride from your body. As fluoride is such a heavy neurotoxin, your liver requires extra care when it comes to cleaning it afterwards. The type of cleanse will determine how well you remove all toxins.
There are 2 main types of cleanses, the first focuses on the liver itself, the second focuses on the gallbladder. The gallbladder is directly connected to the liver functionality and should therefore not be forgotten.
If you decide to complete your liver cleanse at home, make sure you follow the instructions clearly. A basic cleanse can take 1-2 weeks to complete and you can work up to longer cleanses of up to 6 weeks.
Some of the signs that your liver isn’t working as well as it could be are:
- Gas and bloating
- Acid reflux
- High blood pressure
- Dark coloured urine
- Chronic fatigue
- Decreased appetite
- Mood swings
- Skin easily bruised
- Skin or eyes have a yellow tinge
A cleanse will usually involve removing toxic foods from your diet. These are foods that are processed and normally contain high amounts of sugar, trans fats and chemicals.
By replacing these foods with fresh, healthy, fibrous vegetables and adding in liver-friendly herbs such as milk thistle and turmeric you will enable your liver to successfully remove the fluoride from your body.
Avocados, garlic, lemons and limes are some of the foods that are particularly beneficial for helping the body cleanse the liver and should be consumed as often as possible.
Chickweed tea is also said to be beneficial while detoxing to protect your kidneys. Furthermore, taking a highly absorbent calcium/ magnesium supplement and adding soy lecithin is recommended.
2. Household Herbs: Turmeric, Cayenne, Parsley, Chlorella, and Cilantro
Green leafy herbs and plants, as well as spices, are well known for their strong abilities to improve the overall health of the body, help wounds heal faster, act as nutritional supplements and eliminate nutritional deficiencies.

Research presented at the American Chemical Society demonstrated that Cilantro can be used to filter heavy metals. In your body, it will bind to them making it easier for your body to filter the toxins out. Chlorella has a similar effect but is stronger than cilantro so it is advisable to start with Cilantro to allow your body to get used to the detoxing effect.

4. Far Infrared & Dry Saunas
Far infrared saunas are known for their unparalleled ability to removing toxins & heavy metals from the body very fast. Dry saunas may also achieve some of these benefits, but the length of time needed to achieve close to the same effect makes them far less practical.
Far Infrared rays stem from the sunlight. It can be gently absorbed into the body to depths of 1.5 inches where it stimulates the cells below the surface of our skin.
The heat creates safe but intense sweating which causes water and oils containing heavy metal toxins and sodium fluoride to be released from our fatty tissues, leaving our body clean and detoxified.
Using a far infrared sauna is a very pleasant experience and the longer the heat exposure, the greater the elimination of toxins will be.
It is very important to keep hydrating with alkaline water during this process to avoid dehydration and replenish any lost minerals.
