I have been following the expansion of GMO technology for almost fifteen years. At first it seemed very far out but over time the evidence has mounted to the point that the majority of people that I know are at least concerned about GMO’s. I personally am terrified.
Glyphosate is used on GMO crops to kill weeds thus increasing the crop yield. GMO crops have been genetically modified to be unaffected by the weedkiller. If you consume those crops, you get some glyphsate in your body.
How does it affect us? Glyphosate immobilizes certain nutrients and alters the nutritional composition of the treated crop causing nutritional deficiencies. It causes gut dysbiosis (imbalances in gut bacteria) It enhances inflammation, leaky gut, which leads to food allergies such as gluten intolerance. It inhibits the production of amino acids that are vital to our metabolism. And to me, worst of all, glyphosate effects our bodies by inhibiting detoxification processes thus causing the buildup of other toxins that we com in contact with.
Glyphosate has been associated with:
- Alzheimers Disease
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Gastrointestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis and Crohn’s disease
- Parkinsons Disease
It may take months or years to breakdown in the soil. I cannot find any information on how long it takes to break down in animals. Avoidance has to be the first priority. Since glyphosate diminishes our ability to detox, we must do our best to enhance the detox pathways. This will need to be done on an ongoing basis.
Steps to take:
- Avoid using Roundup and other similar products
- Avoid consumption of GMO foods. They are directly contaminated with glyphosate.
- Eat organic foods as much as possible
- Since glyphosate decreases our body’s ability, detox on a daily and weekly basis using nutrients as well as other modalities such as detox baths.
THERE IS NOW A BLOOD TEST FOR GYPHOSATE!

I have been using Glyphosate for the last 3 years for work, But over the last six months have been experiencing Anxiety and depression. How can I detox this out of my system the quickest so I no longer feel so Anxious and Depressed all the time. Please Help.
Specifically I don’t know of any such technique. Generally, avoiding contact and ingestion will decrease most chemical pesticides. Some rather quickly. There are other detox proceedures and treatments. You can find some of them on our website. Feel free to set up a no-cost consult to see if we can be of service.
Zeolite on amazon is an detoxification system that be daily used, I like it. Kinda weird drink but works
Thanks for your comment Jeff. How do you know it works?
Look into portable sauna therapy. You can do this using infrared saunas or steam saunas at home and at limited expense. Also look into coffee enemas for detoxification if you’re feeling a little more adventurous.
Thanks for your comment.
Start taking 5-HTP at 50 mg per day.
Glyphosate inhibits tryptophane synthesis.
This amino acid is essential for serotonin synthesis which
is responsible for your good mood.
Thanks for your share.
I have cognitive multiple sclerosis, depression, add and lupus I am 47 yrs old and 170 lbs I am also on a fixed income.
What can I do to cleanse my body and get rid of the toxins from the gmos and glyphosate?
Thanks for your question Lisa. Many questions can be answered simply. I’m afraid that there isn’t a simple answer to your question. It would depend on many factors that would need to be answered through consultation and examination.
My dog and I walk through a field which I think is contaminated with glyphosate. I wash her paws down with water and rub them dry with a towel, and rinse my shoes after. But it this enough? Should I be using soap as well?
I would avoid that area.
Glyphosate is sprayed on all grain crops in the US. The farmers call it drying or ripening, they suspect this is a problem, but are caught in this chemical farming mess. I feel really bad for them, they were lied to by Monsanto and the USDA, the state agriculture schools are all in with this, repeating the lies that glyphosate is safe and biodegradable. It’s up to us to not use grain products of any kind unless you can verify they haven’t been sprayed. Any meat Fed these grains is also full of glyphosate organic eggs have been found t o be full of it. I think this is because it’s impossible to find chicken feed with UN sprayed grain. Do you know of any grain growers that do not ripen with glyphosate?
