Best Ways to Avoid Fluoride and Top Detox Tips
Surely by now you have read articles or seen videos that talk about the dangers of fluoride. Although you will hear statements from health and local authorities that fluoride is safe and natural, this isn’t the case. It’s true that calcium fluoride from natural wells or other water sources are natural, but even this natural source of fluoride can become dangerous if the fluoride level is too high. However, we aren’t talking about a natural source of fluoride, but rather the sodium fluoride that is being added to many municipal drinking water sources. This type of fluoride is extremely unsafe, as it accumulates in bone and soft tissue as well as the brain, and has serious health consequences. Read more about 10 shocking places you would never expect to find fluoride.
Sodium fluoride, the type added to many public water sources, is full of cadmium, lead, and aluminum as well. Is it any wonder why the IQ test scores of American children continue to fall every year as Alzheimer’s rates climb? Sodium fluoride weakens the immune system and causes damage to the liver and kidneys. Some of the symptoms of sodium fluoride overdose are very similar to the symptoms of fibromyalgia: abdominal pain, diarrhea, fatigue, muscle pain, insomnia, memory loss, and increased thirst.
Fluoride can help prevent cavities, however, most people get all the fluoride they need in their toothpaste and/or mouthwash. We do not need to be drinking excessive amounts in tap water. Not only that, but fluoride is also in prescription drugs. You should consider this as well: crops are also dusted with fluoride as it is an excellent fumigant and pesticide. Fluoride is in infant formula, bottle water, and even in some of those “natural” home insecticides.
There has been so much research in this area, showing the dangers of sodium fluoride being added to public water supplies, that even the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as the EPA, have taken notice. Although these governmental agencies have taken a step in the right direction, lowering the limit of what is considered to be “safe” levels of fluoride, there really is no safe level and no one should be happy until fluoride is completely eliminated from municipal water supplies.
Limiting our intake of fluoride should be on everyone’s “to do” list, as well as detoxing and removing this dangerous chemical from our bodies. First, let’s look at the best ways to cut our consumption of fluoride down to the absolute minimum.

“Fluoride can help prevent cavities, however, most people get all the fluoride they need in their toothpaste and/or mouthwash.” Perhaps those “most people” could — at least for starters –use toothpaste that doesn’t contain fluoride. Same with mouthwash, if they think they even need it.
“Avoid soymilk as these products contain high levels of sodium fluoride.” Are you saying that, for instance, Westsoy’s organic, unsweetened soymilk — which claims it consists of nothing but filtered water and whole organic soybeans — also includes “high levels of sodium fluoride”? And they don’t need to put this info on their container?
