The Lesson: Heavy metals like cadmium, lead, and mercury can lead to a diverse and serious palate of health complications, including everything from cancer to depression. Josh Macin suffered with mercury poisoning from tooth fillings, sushi, and other sources for three years before finally realizing what ailed him. Many mental disorders are associated with symptoms of heavy metal poisoning and can be traced all the way back to Roman times. Heavy metal detoxification is a powerful tool with some good science behind it – and it’s a tool that saved this young man’s life. In this podcast, Macin outlines the debilitating spiritual and mental struggles he endured throughout his bout with mercury-induced mental illness. Furthermore, he asks the world for a little more understanding in regards to the hardships faced by people around us.

Notable Excerpt: “First would be for people to change their water. Our water makes up 75% of our blood, and of our body. So we’ve got to change our water. I love natural spring water from the earth, I love distilled water from my home distiller; and when we change our water we change our thoughts, we change our vibration. It’s very important that we start drinking good quality water. The other part of that physical advice would be to potentially start experimenting with some kind of fasting.”

The Guest: Josh Macin was the 2010 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and the 2012 Pan-American champion, who, around October 2013, began to suffer from severe panic attacks and depression. After trying everything in an attempt to heal himself—from psychedelic drugs and yoga to supplementation and more conventional pharmaceuticals—he was prepared to take his own life, devising a plan to instigate a shark attack. Upon listening to a voice inside his head, however, he decided to battle on a little longer – and that’s when he learned about mercury poisoning. After going on a heavy metal detoxification process, his battle was won, and he now owns a company, The Detox Dudes, which helps others overcome the same struggles that found him so desperately trapped in the jaws of fate (and nearly sharks).
