Hey everybody and happy Monday!

I’ve got an important Motivational Monday for you today because we are talking Mercury. Not necessarily the mercury in your thermometer, but the mercury that is found in fish.

Heart disease is the number one killer in America and because of this, more and more people are turning to fish as a lean protein source for improved cardiovascular function. While this may have some advantages, it can also be harmful to your health if you are eating too much of the wrong fish.

Mercury toxicity is on the rise and the main culprit is the over-consumption of contaminated fish. Yet, unless you have a blood test to see if your mercury levels are high, you may not be aware that you could be poisoning yourself. Sure, there are symptoms associated with mercury toxicity such as fogginess in the brain and skin rashes, but these are common symptoms that may or may not be related to mercury.

If you eat a lot of fish, have many fillings in your mouth and are demonstrating symptoms that are persistent, then you may want to have your blood check to see if the culprit is mercury.

But do not fear ~ A healthy adult can chelate mercury out of their system within three months and it is easy to do. It can be a delicious experience too, as there are some great foods out there that contain nutrients that help to chelate mercury from the system,

In today’s video I am going to show you the best foods to include in your diet to help you eliminate mercury. In addition, I am going to share with you one of my favorite pesto recipes that includes most of these foods so you can get yourself healthy in one delicious dish. I got the recipe from a colleague in Colorado and you will absolutely want to try this pesto…..
