The human body is home to hundred's of toxic chemicals. Even newborns have been found to have over 200 toxins in their bodies. No matter what we do to stay healthy, we still can’t totally prevent the many harmful toxins and pollutants that are present in our food, water and air. There is good news however, because you can greatly strengthen your defenses by making some basic changes to your lifestyle.
Here are a few recommendations to ease-up on your liver.
Is your body acidic?
Maintaining the pH balance of your body is important since an imbalance can cause acid levels in your blood to rise.

Chelation therapy is a treatment that is used to remove metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic from the body. Lead and arsenic have shown to contribute to bodily functions, however, when mercury (purely toxic) and other metals build up in the human body, they can become toxic and make you sick, and sometimes are lethal.
Lead and mercury, as well as arsenic can be removed with chelation therapy. Metal poisoning must be detected in your blood by a physician before the medication can be administered. You get the chelating medicine through an intravenous tube in your arm and the medication then attach to the metals in your blood. It's also available in pill form. Once the drug has attached to the metal, your body removes them both through the urinary tract.
Arsenic, cadmium, aluminum, lead, and mercury can all find their way into our body tissue. Cilantro has been shown to actively eliminate them from the body in a way that loosens them from the tissue by first binding them together, and then eliminating them from the body.
