It’s no secret that GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) have infiltrated our food supply. So it’s all-too-easy to end up eating them – especially during the holidays, when we tend to be a bit more lax about our food.

But there’s no need to worry about your holiday indulgence. Today, I’m going to share five simple, effective ways to cleanse your body of toxic GMOs, some of which may surprise you.

I’d like to start with a brief recap on GMOs, and why they’re toxic and bad for your bones.

What The Establishment Doesn’t Want You To Know About GMOs

Savers know that GMOs are Genetically Modified Organisms, and the acronym “GMO” refers almost exclusively to crops. Genetic modification refers to the artificial introduction of foreign genes into a plant’s DNA in order to achieve a perceived “benefit” (such as resistance to weed killers).

The problem is that these GM crops can damage your health and your bone density in various ways that can be hard to discern at first, but devastating nonetheless.

The most obvious harm that GMOs do is promote the use of toxic weed killers. The reason that certain crops are genetically modified to resist weed killers is so farmers can spray these chemicals on the food crops with abandon; they do not have to worry about accidentally killing the good plant while eradicating the weeds.

That’s not all. Animal studies have shown a clear connection between the ingestion of GMOs and liver and kidney damage, and therein lies the method by which GMOs destroy bone.1 When these vital detoxification organs are damaged by the ingestion of genetically modified food, they simply can’t keep the body cleansed of poisons.

Given the prevalence of GMOs and the damage they cause, it makes sense to detoxify from these foreign food “invaders.” So here are…

5 Effective Ways To Detox From GMOs

1. Add More Fiber And Pectin-Rich Foods To Your Diet

I’m sure you’re aware that pectin is found in fruits like apples; but you may not have known that there are many vegetables that contain pectin as well. Both fruits and veggies are full of cleansing fiber (pectin is a type of water-soluble fiber), and you’ll notice many of them are Foundation Foods on the Osteoporosis Reversal Program.

As you choose your cleansing, pectin-rich foods, remember to buy organic. This is particularly important where pectin is concerned, because much of a food’s pectin content is found in the peel and skin.

*Foundation Food

These bone-healthy foods contain many bone-building nutrients as well, which is why many of them are listed as Foundation Foods in the Osteoporosis Reversal Program. This is yet another reason why whole foods are the best way to get pectin or any nutrient; just one Foundation Food has multiple benefits, helping to “attack” osteoporosis from a variety of angles.

The same multi-benefit effect is found in regular exercise, which we’re going to look at next.

2. Go Ahead And Get Sweaty!

Exercising for your bones is certainly a wise and healthful thing to do. The benefits of exercise are extensive, from improved mood to better cardiovascular health. There is still another positive “side effect” of exercise: sweating.

Sweating is another way the body expels toxins. Ancient cultures used “sweat lodges” and modern people use saunas, but the effect is the same: to remove poisons from the system and enhance health.

Exercising until you sweat is a fantastic way to detox and build your bones at the same time. Even though it is winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, you can still exercise regularly. If you have the Densercise™ Epidensity Training System, then you already have what you need to get sweaty! If you need more motivation, why not listen to music while you work out, invite friends to exercise with you, or go ahead and workout at the gym, indoor tennis court, or other facility to really work up a cleansing sweat.

As you sweat out toxins, your body needs to replace the water you expend during exercise. Make sure the water you drink is healthful for your bones and free of toxins, which brings us to the third way to rid your body of GMOs.

3. Drink Plenty Of Pure Water

Water from municipal sources is rife with chemical poisons, such as pesticide residue, pharmaceuticals, fluoride, and various disinfection chemicals, such as trihalomethanes and haloacetic acids, which are formed when these disinfection chemicals react to organic matter present in the water.

The purest water you can drink is distilled water, which is water obtained from the collection of steam. When water is boiled, pure H2O is released in the steam, leaving impurities and all other molecules behind. When this steam is collected and allowed to cool into water again, the result is nothing but two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.

As Savers know, I always recommend adding a few drops of lemon juice to your distilled water to add alkalinity and boost the detoxifying effect. You can also add a few slices of organic lemon to a pitcher of distilled water, and drink as much as you like throughout the day.

There is no consensus on the exact amount of water that’s ideal for everyone. That’s because individuals vary, and what works for one will be too little or too much for another. So while opinions on this topic vary, a good place to start is with five 8-ounce glasses daily, and go from there. Remember, don’t wait until you are very thirsty to drink. Keep your distilled water handy and sip throughout the day.

Like all of these tips, drinking plenty of healthful water solves many health problems and boosts bone health as well as detoxifying your system. The same is true for our next tip.

4. Eat Plenty Of Probiotic-Rich, Fermented Foods

When you eat foods that are rich in healthful bacteria, it’s like sending in a microbial army to fight on your behalf. This is particularly relevant with regard to GMOs, because of a highly toxic pesticide known as Bt-toxin. I’ll explain.

Bt-toxin stands for “Bacillus thuringiensis,” a bacterial poison that, when sprayed on crops, ruptures the stomachs of insects that ingest it. It’s been used for years, unfortunately.

And genetic modification has introduced corn and soy crops that already have the Bt gene inside them. Clearly, washing the foods will not get rid of pesticide residue since the pesticide is literally inside the food.

This is where probiotics come in. These microbial fighters will help your digestive tract to fend off the Bt-toxin invaders that are found in GMOs. And – you guessed it – probiotics are good for your bones. In fact, research shows us that a healthy, balanced gut can actually enhance bone density.2

Foods rich in probiotics include fermented dairy products like kefir, plain, organic yogurt (even though made from acidifying cow’s milk, the fermentation produces an alkalizing product full of healthful microbes), kombucha tea, sauerkraut, and so forth.

Sauerkraut is made from cabbage, which is a cruciferous vegetable. This and other cruciferous veggies are high in a little-known but very cleansing nutrient: sulfur.

5. Consume Foods High In Sulfur

Sulfur is a mineral that’s found throughout your body. It has a distinctive smell (you can always tell when someone is cooking broccoli!) because of glucosinolates, found in cruciferous vegetables. Sulfur protects your body against toxins and harmful bacteria, and is essential for the manufacture of connective tissue like collagen, which makes up the bone matrix.

Here is a list of foods rich in sulfur:

*Foundation Food

Cruciferous vegetables are full of d-glucarate, a phytochemical essential to the detoxification process, which is why so many of them are included in OsteoCleanse™, The 7 Day Bone Building Accelerator.

A food-based cleanse, OsteoCleanse™ includes an extensive list of detoxifying fruits and vegetables that help rid the body of toxins, from GMOs to osteoporosis drugs. It gives you a “jump start” on building youthful bones and rejuvenating skeletal tissue, cleansing your kidneys and liver and alkalizing the body.

You may not realize your need for a cleanse. After all, you might “feel fine.” But the signs of needing a cleanse can be subtle, and your liver and kidneys may be struggling and in need of a rest even if you aren’t aware of it. It’s pretty much guaranteed that your detoxification organs are in a state of overload if you’ve indulged in GMOs, sugar, artificial flavorings and colors, and other “treats” over the holidays (or any other time).

In fact, OsteoCleanse™ is appropriate any time you feel sluggish or have had a period of time where your diet is less than ideal. It’s certainly happened to me at various points in the year, and it’s easy to follow OsteoCleanse™ any time you need to get back on track.

Don’t let the term “cleanse” turn you away! With OsteoCleanse™, you won’t be stuck in the bathroom because you had to take lots of colon-cleansing pills. OsteoCleanse™ is food-based, easy, and it only takes seven days.

Here’s to starting the New Year free of toxins!

    If a product is labeled non-GMO but not organic, is this an okay product to use?
    Or is non-GMO the same as organic?

    Thanks.

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA January 9, 2016, 9:41 am

      Good question, Marilyn. Since the question of GMO labeling is still being decided regionally, the key is to check labels. The only way y ou can know for sure if a product is GMO-free and organic is if it is labeled as both. As a general rule, though, organic foods are *usually* GMO-free as well.

    Can you be able to assist and find out whether this
    company is reliable they sell water filters and jugs.

    Thank you.

    Are you aware that distilled water is acidic and involves the removal of calcium and magnesium. If drank for long periods of time is highly dangerous. Just saying!
    According to Zoltan P. Rona MD Msc
    Conflicting information not useful.

    • live4ever February 16, 2016, 10:07 pm

      It never ceases to amaze me that people are questioning distilled water, and yet most probably drink sodas, etc without a thought! All we need from water is the liquid. If you must, just add concentrated sea minerals to your daily supply of distilled water. Then you do not have the added pollutants of city water.

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA January 8, 2016, 9:47 am

      Hi Penny,

      From a chemical standpoint, distilled water is pure H2O. And it is neutral to acidic (pH); leaning more towards acidic. We can drink pure water (i.e. distilled) which is like rain water (pure H20 minus pollutants in the atmosphere, more abundant today than in ancient times when people used to collect rain water for drinking), and it is more beneficial than mineralized water with inorganic minerals. The concerns about pollutants in distilled water can be easily “evaporated” by getting your own distiller and making sure that the containment tank is not made with toxic metals.

      We have ample opportunities to get plenty of organic minerals from the foods we eat and from organic supplements. What the World Health Organization (WHO) claims about low mineral levels is true, but why blame that on the water we drink instead on a diet deficient in fruits and vegetables that are naturally rich in minerals? Water is not intended to be a source of nutrients (except for fluoride “supplemented” in tap water).

      Given the different points of view on water, a prudent idea is to not drink only one kind of water. You can sometimes drink spring water and drink some distilled water as well, or reverse osmosis water.

        a community high in the Andes live above the snow line most of the year .. Their water flows from under a Glacier and is very milky in colour.. The people found it not good to drink much of that water. but they watered their crops of vegetables with it. The high content of minerals in the water taken up by the plants made the minerals bio-available. They have a healthy life span of 120 /130 years. Their drinking water come from middle snow. scrap off the surface snow the clean snow then went into the pot to melt.

    It was an incredible good timing. Thank u for keeping me informed.

    I used to drink Kombucha but quit because it’s made with black and green tea, which according to you is high in fluoride and so would be counterproductive to saving our bones.

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA January 7, 2016, 11:15 am

      All things in moderation, Karen! Like acidifying foods, black and green tea can have a place in a bone-healthy diet. Drinking a cup or two of kombucha several times a week can be a healthful way to get probiotics into your system without excessive fluoride ingestion.

      • Bob January 10, 2016, 6:41 am

        Depends where the tea is processed and if that area has fluoride water .?? And if the factory filters the water first to remove the contaminants .?? Home work is needed.

    Hi Alan
    In answer to your questions, Lemons oranges grapefruits are acidic, until you consume them then they become alkaline, milk is acidic until it’s made into yoghurt (which has fermented), that makes it healthy and alkaline, but ONLY the plain natural yoghurt with no sugar added.
    You will find all this information on this page, just use the search bar at the top and you can get to know everything you need to know.
    No need to be confused, hope this helps

    • Vivian Goldschmidt, MA January 7, 2016, 11:19 am

      I couldn’t have said it better myself, Patricia. 🙂

      • Bob January 10, 2016, 6:38 am

        I have had a peptic ulcer and tried the citrus fruits… Oranges .limes only made it worse.. Lemons are the only ones that brought relief from the acidity.. at one stage I added a little sugar for the taste.. The sugar stimulated the stomach secretions and ouch !! never again . just lemon juice in room temp water and sip it bit at a time.. settles the stomach very nicely..
        Bob RN.

  24. Alan January 7, 2016, 3:46 am

    I don’t get it—lemons are full of citric aid, but you call them alkalyzing, and milk is full of calcium, but you call it acidifying—-somebody explain???????

    • Bob January 10, 2016, 6:32 am

      Hi Alan ,
      Yes it would seem confusing . Just remember that the stomach secretions are just like hydrochloric acid.. extremely strong acid.. so the reaction to all that you digest has a conversion.. The stomach has a layer of very thick mucus to protect it’self from this acid. This acid is only produced in the presence of food. when the stomach is empty the production should stop. Lemons citric acid buffers the stomach acid to produce alkaline.. other citrus fruits do not do this.. people with a sensitive stomach need to consider limiting oranges etc.to a little at a time. Vitamin C supplements.. Ascorbic acid.. and choose Calcium ascorbate. an alkaline form of Ascorbate.
      Bob RN.

      • live4ever February 16, 2016, 10:13 pm

        Thanks Bob. I have tried ACV in warm water which works for indigestion as in nausea but if i try to use as morning drink i get acid reflux. I will now try lemon juice instead. Thanks for sharing your knowledge on this

    • Betty January 7, 2016, 7:12 am

      I am sure Vivian can explain this better. My limited understanding of this is that alkalinity and acidic attributions of food is determined by the end product that occurs at the end of the digestive process. This is called “ash”. The internet will also give lots of info if you have a computer. Maybe I will search for more on this subject as well.

      • Hester January 7, 2016, 8:31 am

        Hi Vivian – this is a excellent article. Thanks for saving our bones.
