Some of the main toxins that threaten your health are the heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic. Although not a heavy metal aluminum is also toxic. These toxic metals get into your body from food, water, air, or absorption through the skin. They become attached to proteins and molecules and disrupt the function of your cells causing serious damage. Liquid zeolite is gaining a reputation as an ideal natural solution to detox them safely from your body.
Why do we need to detox heavy metals?
Toxic metals replace nutrient minerals and impair the function of enzymes that are involved in thousands of your body’s metabolic reactions including the detox system. They can also weaken and cause free radical damage to tissues such as your arteries, joints, bones and muscles.
The kidneys, intestines and nervous system are most sensitive to damage by mercury but it can lodge in the brain and many other tissues weakening the immune system. Mercury amalgams (silver dental fillings) have been found to be the main source of mercury exposure in most individuals. Although people who eat a lot of fish may also accumulate mercury especially if they are not good detoxifiers of it.
Long-term heavy metal exposure may result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that are similar to Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis.
What is Liquid Zeolite?
Liquid zeolite is a relatively new oral supplement being used to successfully remove heavy metals, radioactive elements, pesticides and other environmental toxins from your body very safely and easily.
Zeolite has been used in powder form for some time in industry to clear up oil spills and as a feed additive for animals. In Eastern Europe, Japan and Cuba zeolites have been traditionally used in agriculture. It was even used to clean up the radiation from after the Chernobyl disaster.
Zeolites are naturally occurring volcanic minerals that have a unique honeycomb structure with a negative charge which attracts and traps the positively charged metals and other toxins. The zeolite is excreted in the urine about 6 – 7 hours after taking it carrying the toxins with it. Some also leaves the body via the stools although this obviously takes longer.
Uses of Liquid Zeolite
Using liquid zeolite has proved to be a less invasive and less expensive treatment for heavy metal toxicity that IV EDTA (ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid) and DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid) chelators which continue to be used in many arterial disease and other clinics.
The problem with these substances is they they also rob your body of minerals which have to be replaced. After initially attracting a toxic metal the chelator can drop it elsewhere in the body in preference to a valuable mineral. Once the toxic metal or other toxin is attracted by zeolite it is not given up in this way. Because zeolites attract heavy metals they have to be purified before they can be used as an oral supplement.
Liquid zeolite may prevent Swine Flu
Some studies have shown that zeolite can even be effective in treating viral infections as it appears to trap viral particles which prevents them replicating. Anecdotal evidence indicates that zeolite is effective in treating flu, colds, hepatitis C, rheumatoid arthritis, and viral or heavy-metal-induced multiple sclerosis.
It is even being suggested that it could help protect against Swine Flu. Its anti-viral effect is not immediate. It only seems to happen after you have been on it for about four to six weeks, and most of the the heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides have been pulled out.
Improve your immune system, liver and kidney function
Heavy metals and other toxins compromise immune function. Activated Liquid zeolite removes these safely so it can improve immune function By reducing your body’s toxic load liquid zeolite makes the liver’s job easier and therefore takes the strain off this vital detox organ. This leads to a healthier liver. After 10 years on medication one woman reportedly cured a liver abscess after taking zeolite for only 8 weeks.
As mercury and toxic metals can impair kidney function it can help to improve their function. Liquid zeolite does not cause any damage to the kidneys.
Liquid Zeolite traps free radicals in its complex structure. It inactivates the free radicals and eliminates them from the system. this is one way it may help prevent cancer.
Zeolite & Cancer
Although no claims can be made for zeolite for the treatment of cancer Dr. Cousens from the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center has drawn attention to a preliminary 14 month study, with 65 patients with terminal cancer patients who were sent home to die. 51 of the patients experienced complete remissions with zeolite. No indication of dose was given.
Is zeolite good long term?
In fact Dr Cousens says “I recommend that as long as we choose to keep eating, breathing, and drinking water, we keep taking all natural Zeolite.”
In a study he did on 60 people that went to his Center for a 2 week green juice fast he found that even the ones who were on long term organic, raw food diets, had all 26 of the toxins they tested for. These toxins don’t come out easily.
How to choose a liquid zeolite product
There are a number of companies offering liquid zeolite each claiming that theirs is the best so how do you choose one?
Firstly, make sure it has been cleaned. These are generally described as “activated”. You don’t want to take one that is still full of toxins. Secondly it must contain a particle size of less than 5 microns.
There are products that have high mold and bacteria content because they use ingredients such as humic acid. It’s best in this case to ask for a third party analysis.
Here are some suggestions:
- Ask for a full 3rd party (must be done by independent lab) specification sheet giving full elemental analysis (including any impurities), particle size analysis, micro analysis (bacterial and fungal content), and VOC (volatile organic compound) content.
- Ask for powder diffraction analysis to prove that the product actually contains zeolite. As there are liquid zeolite products with no detectable zeolite in them this is very important.
- Ask for blood serum zeolite level tests to show that the product is actually being absorbed by the body. (It will only be absorbed if the particle size is small enough.)
If you are unable to get any of the above information don’t buy it.
The current four leading brands are:
- Natural Cellular Defense (NCD) sold by Waiora,
- UK ZNatural sold by Spirit of Sunshine
- US ZNatural sold by Trilogy
- ACZnano sold by Results RNA.
Almost all the scientific information on the clinical use of liquid zeolite have involved Waiora’s Natural Cellular Defense (NCD) which is sold through distributors.
How much to take?
The recommended dosage is 10 drops three times per day for the first 30 days followed by a maintenance dose of 3 – 5 drops drops three times a day.
It is important to drink eight to ten glasses of water a day while using liquid zeolite as it is dehydrating. If you don’t drink enough water, you could experience side effects; 99.9% of the side effects of this product are due to dehydration
You can monitor your levels with a urine challenge test through a specialized laboratory such as Genova Diagnostics that measures toxic metal levels before and while taking liquid zeolite. You might be surprised at the result.
