Aluminum Toxicity
3 Replies
OnaJourney - February 27

I recently saw a new specialist for my fibromyalgia. Blood work revealed I have abnormally high aluminum. This information was given by phone with vague instructions to check my diet for aluminum by carefully reading labels. Does anyone have suggestions for foods to avoid, etc.?

I use stainless steel cookware and flatware, use Brita to reduce metals in my drinking water, do not drink pop or from a can, no gum (yes, it contains aluminum) and am about to switch my antiperspirant (contains aluminum) for deodorant (doesn't contain aluminum), and find an organic lipstick (yes, that too).

Aluminim additives include dry cake mixes, pastries and croissants made from frozen dough, processed cheeses, some donuts and waffles, muffins, toothpaste, tooth whitening products, food colouring including organic colouring, antacids, processed cheese, Parmesan and grated cheese, cream of tartar, bleached flour, beer, pickles, relish, buffered aspirin, Summers Eve and Massengil douche.

Don't forget that baking trays are frequently made from aluminum.

Go to the health food store and get Calcium in the chelate form with magnesium. That will help eliminate it from your body. Take care.

Fantod - thank you for that information. With respect to pickles, if the bottle doesn't say aluminum or some form of aluminum is added, then may I assume it is okay? I have been enjoying pickle beets!

Apparently, aluminum is added as part of the preservative process. I'd stay away from pickles, pickled beets etc just to be sure. Take care.
