  1. Hello! I am so interested in detoxing and have recently started a nutritional balancing program developed by Dr Eck and Dr Wilson which highlights that it’s super important to be balancing minerals before detoxing so new toxins aren’t redeposited into the places where the minerals are missing (i.e. calcium). A hair test is done first and then supplements are personalized for your specific mineral imbalance. Then as the body remineralizes it pushes toxins out safely and NIR saunas, dry brushing, enemas are all part of the protocol as well. I would love to hear if Wendy is familiar with this program and what her thoughts are on it.

    Thank you!

  2. Does Wendy have a Physician Code for ordering on Researched Nutritionals?

  3. Loved this podcast. Great info! Thank you!!!!

  4. GREAT that you included the transcript but you might want to check it the automated translation you are using is leaving a lot of errors!

    • It’s not automated. It’s a service that manually transcribes the audio to written, and it’s pretty literal, so it’s possible they are picking up ums, ahs, and other filler words are hard to dictate.

  5. Wendy is familiar with this she was a “helper” with Dr, Wilson several years ago, but has since moved on
    ( I continued to stay 🙂

  6. This is all wonderful and expensive. Most of these supplements and attending practitioners are beyond the common persons financial ability.

  7. Great info. I recently learned that redheads have an impaired detox ability that may lead to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, so I know it’s important for me to detox. Are there other binder options besides Pectasol C, which is very expensive? I’m wondering if activated charcoal would work, taken with lots of water.
    Thank you!

  8. I’m a huge fan of coffee enemas! They have been instrumental for me and my health with regard to hormones and detoxing my liver. After my CE I take a bentonite clay supplement to help with the detoxification process I would love to ask Wendy for another product to purchase other than the vitamin c product mentioned on the podcast to take with the Biosil because the vitamin C cost is $100. Right now I’m taking some fermented chlorella tablets. Would these suffice? Thanks

  9. Hello, I enjoyed listening to the podcast, but in reference to the Pectasol C there are people saying the actual company says this contains Lead! I called the company and it does indeed contain lead. Thus the California Prop 65 warning on it. So maybe, it should be said that to clear heavy metals taking something that also contains lead is a bit of scary thing to me. Please, research Everything!!

    • I’ll be writing on CA Prop 65 in detail soon. Basically, California came up with its own standards on things that are correlated to cancer and they require this warning if things are sold there. So it could be anything from sweeteners, to calcium, to folic acid and a lot of other things. Lead and other chemicals we label “toxic” are naturally occurring in the soil and a certain amount is safe to consume. While Prop 65 serves some good, it is often abused as its guidelines specific labeling for amounts way below what is safe for humans to consume. In short, the amounts contained in the supplement are from natural occurrences in the soil and are in such low amounts that they’re not harmful to the human. But be on the lookout for a more detailed post coming soon!

      • Taking an Episom Salt bath 1-2 cups oin bath water can help, you might lose 1-2″.

  10. Found this very informative! However, the Pectasol-C supplement she talks about has a warning label on it for cancer and birth defect causing ingredients proven in the state of California. Do you know what that’s about?

    • Yes, and I’ll be writing about this in detail soon. It’s a label that’s basically on everything in California now – and while it does some good, it can go overboard. This supplement, in my opinion, is safe to consume. Be on the lookout for more details in a future post!

  11. Thank you for this informative book. Do you have any experience or advice for one with toxic levels of Gadolinium?

    • An answer to this question about gadolinium toxicity would be greatly appreciated. So many are suffering from highly toxic gadolinium retained from MRI contrast dye.

  12. My son (3 1/2 years old) had a hair analysis come back with lots of heavy metals. Would the Biosil and Pactasol-C be okay to administer to him as well?

    • I wouldn’t without the recommendation/observation of a doctor.

  13. Hi Katie! I am an avid reader of your blog and website. You are a huge go to resource for me and I enjoyed your contributions to Dr Wentz documentary!! I have no idea how you do all that you do. You’re incredible! Quick question… I’m just beginning coffee enemas and came back to your site wanting to return re-read an article you wrote regarding your positive experiences with them. I searched and searched and this is the only thing that comes up when I look for coffee Newman related stuff on your site. Did you remove an article? Do you still recommend them and do them yourself for healing purposes? I’d love to hear back. I hope I didn’t imagine you writing an article on it. I swear I read it a while back and stickbthatcyiu support it in the back of my mind. I’d love to hear your thoughts!! Warmly, Sadie

    • Thanks for your kind words. I actually have not written about this specifically, but plan to very soon.

  14. I could not find anywhere on the BioSil link where it states anything about it being a mobilizer or used for detox. Did I just miss something? Are you sure this is the correct link for the product Wendy recommends? thanks.

  15. Should detox be put on hold while breastfeeding? I’ve seen some sources that say potentially taking chlorella supplements can bind the metals so they don’t enter breastmilk? Just makes me nervous!

  16. I third the gadolinium toxicity question. Doctors thought I had “possible ms” for years, but the following three spinal taps and many contrast mri’s have been negative Yet still my pain and symptoms have progressed. Why?…well I don’t have MS thankfully, but that “possible” misdiagnosis gave me Gadolinium Toxicity Disease instead. Curious if you ladies have pain in area of scan, what strength mri you had, and if you are MTHFR gene mutation postive ?

  17. In regards to the high aluminum in peppermint, why is it so high and how does it compare to organic peppermint?
