I was wondering if anyone takes chlorella or knows if it is safe for us.I think it is but I'm not positive. I read where Dr.Mercola says it can help rid the body of mercury & helps with conspitation.....

Any thoughts?

It's just algae, so it should be fine, but I'd be careful with Mercola - sometimes he's a bit of a quack.

From what I've been hearing Chlorella mobilizes the mercury, but that it doesn't actually get rid of it...the mercury once mobilized can redistribute itself into other tissues/organs if something isn't taken along with it to "bind" with it so it will be excreted out. My doctor has me taking modified citrus pectin (it's a type of fiber) to "bind" with the mercury.

I use Mercola's chlorella, it doesn't contain any gluten. It is full of minerals and has some vitamins. I am also a member of mercola.com. Most of his products are gluten free! Not all brands of chlorella are safe due to manufacturing practices.

This thread is almost a year old, but when I ran across it, wanted to give an update. I checked with Mercola about 3 months ago to see if his chlorella was gluten free, and was advised NOT to take it (or his probiotic) due to gluten or cross contamination. I was a bit bummed because I really liked it, but haven't taken it since. I still take his Krill Oil tabs though, they said they're gluten free.

Some celiacs seem to do fine with chlorella, but it is an immune enhancer. Because celiac disease is an autoimmune disease, people who have it have immune systems that are basically on overdrive. Boosting your immune system isn't necessarily a good idea. Just some info I picked up during my research on the stuff.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
