Did you know that most store bought spices contain toxic ingredients? In fact, most conventional spices sold in the United States are fumigated with dangerous chemicals that are banned in Europe.
Sterilizing Spices with Harmful Chemicals and Radiation
The manufacturing process for most spices sold in America is not safe. Companies use a sterilization process that uses the hazardous chemical ethylene oxide. When herbs get picked up from the fields to be dried, they are usually contaminated with mold, yeasts, and pathogens. This is why manufacturers fumigate spices with dangerous carcinogenic chemicals.
According to The United States Environmental Protection Agency,
Occupational exposure to ethylene oxide leads to lymphoma and leukemia. Stomach and breast cancers have also been associated with ethylene oxide exposure.
Most Spices Contain MSG
Most spices on the market today contain monosodium glutamate (MSG). MSG can cause fatty liver, high cholesterol, fibromyalgia, obesity, lung cancer, high insulin and blood sugar, neurological and brain health issues. Unfortunately, it’s hard to recognize MSG as it can be called by over 40 names. In fact, MSG does not require labeling if it’s used as a processing agent.

Artificial Colors, Preservatives, and GMOS
Most store bought spices can also contain
- Artificial flavors and colors
- Anti-caking agents
- GMO soy
- corn derivatives
Choose Organic Spices
Organic manufacturers do not fumigate the herbs with toxic chemicals. They don’t contain any genetically modified ingredients, fillers, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. This is what I use here
Use Spirulina for damage control and detox from MSG:
Spirulina algae acts as chelator by binding with heavy metals and other toxic substances in order to detoxify them from the body. It’s loaded with vitamin C, vitamin E, phycocyanobilin and carontens, all of which help with oxidative stress and heavy metal chelation. You just need one tablespoon a day! You can find organic spirulina here
I had no idea about the spices. I love to cook so I have a cabinet full of them. I have a bottle or 2 of organic spices but the majority are the ones that are poisoning me
As luck would have it, I recently purchased a bag of Spirulina and find my energyi is much better.
Great piece, Thanks!
Hi Sarah! Unfortunately, most people don’t realize that even the spices can be toxic if they are not organic. And yes, spirulina is the best supplement for the most effective detox!
What if you can’t use spirulina, anything else I can use ? I had thyroid cancer and had my thyroid removed. My doctors advised me to stay away from algae and iodine. I once tried spirulina and ended up sick , it interfered with my thyroid replacement meds. Can you recommend an alternative? Thanks and Thank you for all the great info you post, very informative and greatly appreciated!
Hi Chrisoula! Thank you so much for your kind words! Have you tried taking wheatgrass? It’s completely gluten free and can help with any health issues. I have Hashimoto’s and Ive been taking it for almost 6 months and I feel great! https://livingtraditionallystore.com/beautiful-body/organic-wheat-grass-powder-16-oz/ Please, let me know if you have any questions!
I have Hashi, should I not take Spirulina, or Chorella? Just ordered a large can (900+) of them. 🙁 Thanks. Sue.
I find it funny my questions are never answered, while others are. Is there something wrong with me? I buy your products, does that help??? 🙁

You know what gets me? Every email from you people always ends with you selling something. Makes me think that your reporting is just a tiny bit biased to get me to buy whatever it is you are hawking. How about information for information’s sake. You are becoming an infomercial that I will have to delete soon.
Wow- very rude! I find it helpful to know the brands that people use and where to buy.
Dr. Linda. Maybe you should try taking it. I have seen nothing but great results from taking wheatgrass, spirulina, collagen, macca. I’m in need of a liver transplant. My levels are staying stabilized. My cholesterol, and blood pressure are phenomenal. My body is showing signs of improvement. I’m not taking blood pressure meds, or meds of any kind, I feel the detoxification daily. Hoping I can avoid the transplant altogether. As long as this keeps me in check. I can’t afford the transplant anyway. I just happened upon this site by accident. I believe things happen for a specific reason. Thumbs up for this site.
Hi Bonnie! Thank you so so much for this encouragement. Comments like these keep me going! I really appreciate your support!
You are very welcome. These are the best products ever. Just talked my sister into trying them..can’t wait for her response. I had extra and gave her some to try.
Simply Organic or Frontier, both the same company!!! The only brand I’ve been buying for years!!! They are also a fair trade company!
