Stop, Block & Reverse Program

      


It is possible to reverse most of the damaging effects of fluoride - it just takes time, patience and just a few minor changes to your diet and lifestyle.  Just remember these 3 simple steps:  Stop Fluoride Exposure, Block Fluoride from being absorbed, and Reverse it's toxic effects.

Before you can start reversing fluoride toxicity, its imperative that you first learn to limit your daily fluoride exposure.  This is easier said then done.  The most important thing to remember is that you can never completely eliminate fluoride from your diet - it's nearly impossible.  Because fluoride is in our underground water table from years of water fluoridation and industrial waste, added to most of our water supplies and is often used as a pesticide (even for organic food), there is usually at least some amount of fluoride in every single thing that you eat.  Don't stress about getting some or over analyze food (it will drive you crazy) - just try to avoid as much per day as possible. If you avoid the major sources, you will begin to feel much better in your first week. It may take longer for other symptoms to subside, but they will in time - the longer your body is not exposed to fluoride and has a chance to flush it out.

Step #1: STOP

Stop Drinking Fluoridated Water:
Purchase a Fluoride Water Filter. The first step in blocking Fluoride is to filter your drinking water. This is imperative for good health and mental function. There are many contaminates in your tap water, even if you live on a well.

Stop Using Fluoridated Toothpaste
You actually don't need fluoride for healthy teeth. Eliminating fluoridated toothpaste is one of the most important things you can do.  Fluoride can be absorbed through your mouth and saliva glands, and there is also a chance of swallowing the fluoride.  One tube of fluoridated toothpaste is enough to kill a small child.  Even swallowing a little bit can result in fluoride toxicity. 




Stop Taking Fluoridated Medications
If you are taking any prescription medications, make sure it doesn't contain fluoride.  Research them on the internet, or talk to your doctor and/or pharmacist.  Many SSRIs contain fluoride, such as Citalopram (Celexa, Cipramil, Nitalapram), Escitalopram (Lexapro, Cipralex), Fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), Fluvoxamine (Luvox, Faverin), Paroxetine (Paxil, Seroxat), and Progabide (Gabren, Halogabide). Other medications that often contain fluoride include some arthritis medicine, steroids/anti-inflammatory agents such as Cyclocort, Diprosone and Flonase, and some antibiotics called Fluoroquinolones (Cipro). If you find that the medication you are taking does in fact contain fluoride (or you are not sure), talk to your doctor to find an alternative solution. 

Stop Consuming Foods and Beverages High in Fluoride
Avoid the following foods/beverages which are extremely high in fluoride:
Tea, Wine, Grapes, Raisins, Lettuce, Gelatin (this includes jello, pill caps, jellies, yogurt and can be hidden in many foods; check labels carefully), juice drinks, skin of chicken, cigarette smoke, fast food beverages (especially coffees), canned vegetables, vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, etc, Olives? (I'm not sure about these, but I imagine they are similar to grapes. I can't find any info on their fluoride content but I suspect them), Colored breakfast cereals with lots of food coloring (Blue #4, Red #3, etc - this is aluminum which concentrates fluoride even more), anything you think you may have a reaction to.  Do not take whole food supplements and vitamins. They could be processed with fluoridated water and high heat, and the food may have contained pesticide residue. Fluoride can be anywhere - suspect everything until proven safe!

Limit the following foods which can be high in fluoride:
Sea food & fish (often high in fluoride, however also contains beneficial iodine), potato, onions, Rice, concentrated (frozen) juice, potato chips, corn chips, bread with Aluminum leavening, chicken nuggets/chicken patties that may have  traces of bone in them, soy, Avoid milk substitute products such as soy milk and others; they could be made with fluoridated water. Herbs that can be particularly high in fluoride include:  Peppermint, Tamarind, and Tumeric

Stop Things That Enhance Fluoride Absorption
Avoid Aluminum, which can bind to fluoride making it more concentrated and more toxic. It also allows fluoride (and aluminum) to enter your brain and be deposited there, which can lead to many health and neurological issues.  Studies have also shown that a high-fat diet can increase fluoride retention in tissue and bones.   

Tips: While you are waiting for your fluoride filter to arrive, go to Walmart or your local supermarket and buy distilled water.  Use this for all of your drinking water, coffee, when cooking, for your pets, etc.  The sooner you remove fluoride from your water the better.
Avoid canned foods, soda and beer, aluminum foil, aluminum cook ware, breads used with aluminum leavening or "baking soda" that doesn't say aluminum free (this one is very important), and all tap water (well or public).  Use Aluminum free deodorant.

Step #2: BLOCK

Block Fluoride from your Thyroid and Pineal Gland
Iodine is one of the most important supplements you can take to block fluoride absorption into thyroid gland.  It can improve sluggish thyroid, can aid in weight loss, prevents cold hands & feet, and improves poor metabolism.

Block Fluoride from Being Absorbed
When you eat fluoride, absorption starts in your stomach and continues at various rates throughout your intestines.  Both Calcium and Magnesium can prevent fluoride from being absorbed and are critical for blocking the fluoride  you ingest from day to day. 

Block the Anxiety and Depression Symptoms of Fluoride
Taurine can help to calm you, and has been proven to help with excitotoxicity.  Inositol can help with anxiety and OCD.  Melatonin can help you get a good nights sleep.  Daily adequate intakes of Calcium and Magnesium will also help with anxiety. Tyrosine works with Iodine to support your thyroid, is a mild stimulant, mood enhancer and can help with mental and brain function. Start this a few weeks after you begin this Stop, Block and Reverse program to make sure it doesn't actually increase anxiety.

Tips: Drink lots of milk and eat lots of dairy with every meal if you can tolerate it.  Dairy is also loaded with Iodine & Tyrosine which is good for your thyroid and tryptophan which can help increase serotonin.  Calcium has been proven to help with weight loss.  Fiber is very absorbent and can help to soak up the fluoride in your stomach and in your intestines.

Step #3: REVERSE

Reverse Oxidative Damage
Fluoride can produce excess free radicals, and cause oxidative stress. Oxidative damage has been implicated in many diseases. For pregnant mothers, fluoride can also cause oxidative stress to you and your unborn babies. Antioxidants protect the body against the harmful effects of free radicals and can help prevent cancer.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and may offer protection from fluoride toxicity and reverse it's effects.  Studies have shown that vitamin C significantly reduced the severity and incidence of fluoride-induced embryotoxicity in rats.  Several other studies show Vitamin c to be very helpful in most cases of fluorosis and recovery from fluoride toxicity. I recommend 75mg - 500 mg, but no more (unless you don't have any issues taking a larger dose).

Vitamins D & E are also very powerful antioxidants.  Vitamin E has been known to slow Alzheimer's disease, lower the risk of Parkinson's disease, and may help with excitotoxicity caused by MSG and Fluoride.  When used together, they can be very helpful in preventing fluoride toxicity and reversing fluoride damage.  One study found that a combination of vitamins E and D treatment was comparatively more effective than that with vitamin E or D alone in recovery of all fluoride induced effects, and may help with the reversal of the toxic effects to reproductive functions, fertility and more.

Dark Chocolate is also an excellent antioxidant, and is usually very low in fluoride (make sure to try a few brands if you get any symptoms).  I recommend eating at least some every day.  In fact, dark chocolate has nearly 8 times the number of antioxidants found in strawberries. It can also lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Make sure to find a clean chocolate product with out a lot of additives.

Reverse Neuron Damage
Blueberries are extremely high in antioxidants (like Anthocyanin and vitamin c), and are also loaded with vitamins and minerals.  They can preserve vision, prevent the degeneration and death of neurons and brain-cells, and restore the health of the central nervous system. They may even reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. They can heal damaged brain cells and neuron tissues and help with memory issues. Blueberries can also aid in reducing belly fat, and help with constipation and digestion. Because fluoride can damage brain cells, neurons, and cause digestive issues, blueberries are an excellent way to block the toxin effects of fluoride. It has even been known to help with obsessive compulsive disorder.  Magnesium Malate can also help to remove aluminum (and possibly even fluoride bound to aluminum) from the brain.

Reverse Collagen and Joint Damage
Collagen is essential to healthy skin, joints and muscles. Vitamin C is essential for collagen production.   When it comes to eye health, it can make retina capillaries stronger, support proper nourishment for your eye and even help to prevent eye floaters. Hyaluronic Acid is present in every tissue of the body, including your connective tissues such as skin and cartilage, joint fluid and eyes. MSM is also a mineral that is vital to the formation of collagen, and is used for many health conditions.  Magnesium & Zinc can also be very beneficial to support collagen, hyaluronic acid and health joints, skin and more.

Reverse Tissue Damage
Iodine will help the thyroid and pineal glad rid themselves of fluoride.  The next best thing you can do is to drink lots of clean, fluoride free water.  Flushing yourself thoroughly every day will help the water seep into all of your soft tissue and kidneys and help to flush fluoride and other toxins from internal deposits.

OTHER TIPS:
  1. Keep in mind that heating fluoride concentrates it and releases toxic fumes; be sure not to inhale (coffee, boiled vegetables, rice, etc). To minimize concentrating the fluoride in the coffee beans themselves, drink cold brewed coffee with clean, fluoride free water. Click here for more info. Make sure your shower is well ventilated. Take colder showers to avoid toxic fluoride fumes.
  2. Watch out for organic foods; I have had several issues with them - I've actually had some of my worst reactions to these.
  3. Eat what you crave; even if it ruins your diet for one day. Your body may be craving it for a reason.
