Number three in the series Top 5 Miracle Food is the herb coriander or cilantro. Because of their controversial flavor the cilantro leaves are either loved or hated by many (to be a bit dramatic 😉). The seeds from the plant are called coriander.
Extracts Heavy Metals
Cilantro deserves its place among the miracle foods because of its magical ability to extract heavy metals from the body and detoxify the brain.
It must be eaten fresh in order to be able to remove toxic heavy metals and not only from the brain, but also from several of the body’s systems and organs, especially the liver.
Liver, Adrenal Glands, Blood Sugar, Brain Fog and Viruses
Anthony William writes: “It is great for detoxifying the liver and also one of the best herbs to strengthen the adrenal glands, balance blood sugar and counteract weight gain, brain fog and memory disorders. And as if these were not enough, it is also virus inhibiting – cilantro helps constrain the presence of Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, HHV-6, cytomegalovirus and other herpes viruses in all its various forms, as well as HIV.”
Anti Bacteria, Parasites and Worms
He continues: “It is also antibacterial and helps to counteract virtually all types of bacteria and flush out their waste products from the body. Whether you like the taste of coriander or not, parasites definitely do not like it. Coriander is especially effective against worms.
“And he concludes:” For all chronic and mysterious diseases, both diagnosed, misdiagnosed or undiagnosed – cilantro is a must.
Why do certain people hate cilantro?
According to the author of Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods, Anthony William, heavy metals oxidize faster in a person experiencing a sudden sharp taste from the herb. It does not mean that the person has more heavy metals in the body (such as copper, aluminum and nickel) but only that they corrode faster. Corrosion means that there is toxic leakage in the person’s lymphatic system and saliva. It is very likely that someone who dislikes coriander really is in need of it.
Lesson of the cilantro
We must constantly clear things out from our lives. Not just material things. Sometimes we hold on to beliefs or memories that we no longer need and which would be beneficial to get rid of. Just like the coriander, which is found in cooking from different cultures all over the world, emotional detoxification is a universal need.
Chinese parsley and cilantro
Cilantro is sometimes called Chinese parsley. It is probably one of the oldest herbs still used today. The seeds are called coriander and the young plant with its flat, thin leaves is called cilantro. If you buy fresh cilantro in a bunch then use them as soon as possible, since they do not keep very long. They stay fresh longer if the roots are left on. Use both the leaves and the stems.
