The world is toxic. You don’t have to live beside a factory or a busy
road to receive your dose of toxic chemicals – heavy metals, pesticides,
fertilizers and other problematic substances are in the air we all breathe
and the food we eat, no matter where we live.

You may think that pollutants and chemicals affect your lungs and your
skin, but did you know environmental pollutants also affect your brain?

A build-up of heavy metals can cause memory loss, headaches and even
Alzheimer’s disease. Is there anything you can do to get rid of these
disruptive elements in the brain? A type of cleanse but not for the
digestive system but the brain?

What Do Environmental Toxins Do To Your Body?

According to a 1987 study by the University of Rochester School of
Medicine, the central nervous system is routinely targeted by metals like
aluminum, lead, lithium, mercury, arsenic, and manganese. These heavy
metals are present in tiny amounts in the air, soil, and water supplies –
put there by industry, transport, and waste as well as natural processes
in the environment.

Heavy metals are known to have neurological and behavioral effects on
humans, and particularly on the brain. For example, lead my affect the
brain’s functionality by interfering with certain neurotransmitters, and
mercury is known to damage specific areas in the brain.

Why You Need to Cleanse Your Brain?

The nervous system is vulnerable to exposure from toxic chemicals and
the brain is particularly sensitive to the actions of these metals and
pollutants. The brain is mainly made up of lipids, and toxins like heavy
metals are soluble in lipids, meaning they are easily taken up by brain

A build-up of toxins has been linked to learning disabilities, Parkinson’s
disease, and dementia, according to the National Institute of
Neurological Disorders and Stroke. But neurological symptoms may not
be linked to a specific disease, and can include headaches, impaired
concentration, memory problems, insomnia, and fatigue.

In addition, waste products are believed to build up in the brain and
are responsible for brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Amyloid beta proteins stick together to form plaques, causing cell
degradation and death, with dementia as a result.

Getting rid of these chemicals and plaques from the brain, preventing
them from building up to dangerous levels, is beneficial for mental
function and could even prevent disease, according to experts. We
looked at seven specific ways you can use natural remedies and
techniques to cleanse the brain and remove heavy metal and waste
product build-up.

Sleep is a Natural Brain Cleanse

Did you know that you could remove some of the waste build up in
your brain simply by getting a good night’s sleep? Recent research
shows what a powerful brain cleanse sleep actually is.

A 2013 study from the University of Rochester Medical Center reveals
how a mechanism removes waste products from the brain as you sleep,
helping to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Scientists discovered that the “glymphatic system” – which acts to clear
away waste in the brain – is 10 times more active during sleep than
when awake. A sleeping brain removes more amyloid beta protein than
an active, awake brain.

Eat Rosemary to Cleanse the Brain

Could eating a simple herb help to get rid of dangerous chemical build-
up in the brain? Scientists believe that rosemary contains an active
ingredient that protects against the damage caused by free radicals in
the brain.

The 2007 study from the Burnham Institute for Medical Research
(Burnham Institute) in La Jolla shows that carnosic acid in rosemary
can protect the brain from neurodegeneration caused by these free

Gingko Can Help Cleanse the Brain Against Alzheimer’s Disease

An extract from the herb ginkgo biloba is said to protect against mental
decline, improving mental function and protecting against memory loss
– a great cleanse for your brain.

Many studies point to the brain benefits of this herb, including a 1998
study from Arbogroep GAK, Hilversum, The Netherlands, in which
gingko produced modest improvements in the memory of 2410 seniors,
and a 2000 study from Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia that
showed improved mental function in 40 seniors over the trial length of
six weeks.

Cilantro Acts as a Heavy Metal Filter

This common herb is proven to filter dangerous heavy metals from
water, and is also thought to be a great blood-cleanser; helping remove
dangerous chemicals like lead and nickel from your nervous system and

Cilantro acts like a Brita filter, removing hazardous metals from water
simply by absorbing it, according to a 2013 study from Ivy Tech
Community College in Lafayette, Indiana and the Universidad
Politécnica de Francisco I. Madero in Hidalgo, Mexico.

A handful of cilantro is enough to filter dangerous chemicals from
water, making it safer and better for your brain.

Cut Copper to Cleanse Your Brain

Studies show that copper can prevent your brain from effectively
dealing with the beta amyloid plaques that build up and can cause
Alzheimer’s disease.

According to the results of a 2013 study from the University of
Rochester Medical Center, even moderate amounts of copper in your
diet means the brain clears less amyloid beta protein – so steering clear
of copper could give your brain a boost.

Cleanse the Brain with Chelation

Chelation is the incorporation of a mineral ion into an organic structure,
and it is a process that is demonstrated to draw impurities out of the
body, according to experts. There is a role for chelation in cleansing the
body and the brain of harmful heavy metals, according to a 2013 study
by the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute.

Take Fish Oils for a Brain Cleanse

Experts know that long-term alcohol abuse causes brain damage and
increases the dangerous buildup of amyloid beta proteins in the brain,
leading to dementia.

But according to a 2014 study from Loyola University Chicago Stritch
School of Medicine in Illinois, omega-3 fish oils can protect the brain
against this damage. Fish oils help to prevent inflammation and cell
death, preserving brain integrity in people who drink a lot of alcohol.
