Cilantro (leafy coriander) is a powerful detoxifier, and because diabetic metabolism is inefficient (which produces more toxic metabolites), it is likely that this natural therapy will be beneficial for those with diabetes or pre-diabetes. It is also useful to anyone seeking better health.
In an article, Dr. David G. Williams, ND, tells us about cilantro’s unusual healing properties which go way beyond its use as a culinary delight. Researchers show us that herbs are complex plants which offer many medicinal benefits. Herbs and herbalism have been humanity’s medicine for millenia.
In Japan, Dr. Omura, MD finally used cilantro in his research to successfully treat patients with eye infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis and later with Herpes simplex I and II and cytomegalovirus infected patients when traditional medications failed.
With the usual medical protocol, Dr. Omura found residual pools of virus hiding in areas of his patient’s bodies where residues of toxic metals were housed! Somehow these organisms used the toxic mercury, lead and aluminum wastes, so Dr. Omura vowed to find a way to detoxify these people from these dangerous metals and give the infection no place to hide.
The discovery of this “new” medicine to detoxify happened when Dr. Omura saw urinalysis results after a patient ate a Vietnamese soup which contained lots of cilantro.
So, when cilantro was used concurrently with other natural anti-virals or antibiotics (such as garlic and Omega-3 fatty acids – from cold-water fish, hempseed or flaxseed oils), Dr. Omura found the infections were eliminated for good, and the people successfully detoxified from their heavy metal poisoning, too. Most of these ingredients are pH alkaline which allows us to grab these acidic toxins and neutralize them, as well as transport them out.
By chance, Dr. Omura had re-discovered a very effective technique. Previously, heavy metals had been able to be chelated with EDTA, but this detoxification method was expensive. Whereas, cilantro is not expensive and detoxifies very effectively for many types of toxins.
To successfully treat yourself, have cilantro for 2 – 3 weeks, daily. The concentration Dr. Omura used in his research is reflected properly in the recipe which follows.
1 clove garlic, peeled
1/2 cup almonds, cashews or Brazil nuts or mix of them, chopped finely
1 cup fresh organic cilantro leaves
2 T organic lemon juice
6T organic, cold-pressed: extra-virgin olive oil or hemp* or flax seed* oil
Celtic sea salt, to taste
Put the cilantro and oil in a blender and process until the cilantro is chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and process to a lumpy paste. (You may need to add a splash of heated spring water to scrape down the sides of the blender jar.) You can change the amount of oil and juice but leave the ratio of 3:1 the same.
This pesto freezes well, so put it into ice cube trays and take out what you need. You can make more than one batch at a time. Use this warmed to room temperature, as needed, as a tasty sauce to top sprouted-whole-grain noodles or brown rice or quinoa, garnish soups, spread on toast sections etc. And, remember to use fresh leafy cilantro in salads, garnishing Mexican food, veggie smoothies or green shakes etc.
* Em says: organic hemp or flax seed oils are available refrigerated in the best health stores. They must always be refrigerated and never cook with them. Hemp seed is the best vegetarian source of the essential, life-giving Omega 3 fatty acids., which feed your brain, immune system and so much more!

If you are putting the pesto on noodles or in sandwiches, use only sprouted, “flourless” breads and noodles – available at Trader Joe’s, New Season’s Markets, Whole Foods Markets or from
or search for other suppliers using keywords ” sprouted bread bakery “. For the explanation of why sprouted breads are the only kind for diabetics, see:
