Cilantro Recipes and Other
Ways to Use Cilantro
Cilantro recipes can give you many ways to get cilantro into your diet if you want to detoxify from mercury and other toxic metals and not just eat the green leaves - that would be boring. Many people just looking for recipes may not know of cilantro's use to
remove mercury from the body.
I will describe that briefly here and then get into recipes. I am needing more recipes for this page so if you have one that you like, please use the form at the bottom of the page to share it. (Note that I will keep this page to vegetarian recipes.)
Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, Ph.D suggests that cilantro is one of the best natural means to remove mercury from the brain. From his clinical research, he recommended that 5 grams (1 teaspoon) a day is the minimum dose.
Some suggest that, while taking cilantro to chelate heavy metals, a selenium, zinc, and magnesium supplement should be used to replenish the body of these minerals that might be removed along with mercury.
Cilantro can be effective at removing mercury from even inside the cells (intracellular). Because cilantro mobilizes toxins so effectively from where they are hidden away, it may expose areas of the body to higher levels. This re-toxification can be avoided by taking something to absorb the toxins in the intestine. Possibilities include charcoal, clay or the algae chlorella.
A cilantro tea or broth may be used daily for up to two to three months to reduce most cases of high mercury. Make fresh or use 10 to 20 drops of tincture in a cup of hot water. This can be good for headaches and other acute symptoms (joint pains, angina, head ache) and to clear the brain of toxins. Or, rub some into the painful area. It will be absorbed through the skin and can provide pain relief.
NOTE: For all cilantro recipes, (if you are wanting to take advantage of cilantro's detoxification ability) avoid contacting the cilantro with metal cookware or utensils as much as possible. Cilantro is a powerful metal chelator. The main purpose of this page is to give people ways to use cilantro if they are trying to detoxify from heavy metals.
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup of almonds, cashews, pine nuts or other nuts
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, packed

Process the cilantro and olive oil in a blender (add some water if it gets too thick). Add remaining ingredients and blend to a thick paste which can be frozen. You can add other nuts and spices to suit your taste.
Steep eight or more heaping teaspoons of finely chopped cilantro leaves in one liter of water, (covered) for twenty minutes.
You could include cilantro leaves in many different juice combinations to get its benefits.
In a salad, you can just add cilantro leaves along with other greens.
