Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; Frequently Asked Questionsby Lyn Hanshew, M.D.
What scientific research exists documenting the effectiveness of the Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; as a detoxifier of toxic heavy metals?
Urine challenge (post-provocation) tests are the "gold standard" to measure the effectiveness of any chelating agent. Many tests have been performed using Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; as the chelating agent to demonstrate its superior effectiveness in irreversible binding of Mercury and other toxic heavy metals. It is important to compare a challenge (post-provocation) to a baseline (pre-provocation) test for scientific validity. Usually, the baseline test will demonstrate no presence of toxic heavy metals in the baseline urine because there is no detoxifier present. If we could mobilize and excrete toxic heavy metals out of the body without a detoxifier, then by definition the body wouldn't be toxic. We simply don't have the biochemical pathways available to handle the tremendous toxic load that we now all experience and cannot mobilize and excrete toxic heavy metals without the help of Total Zeolite® Extra Strength;.
The Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; challenge (post-provocation) is performed by a person taking the Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; four times during the day and collecting all of the urine that is excreted during that time. These tests scientifically demonstrate the incredible effectiveness of the Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; in the irreversible binding of the toxic heavy metals and excretion through the urinary tract. The binding affinity is also documented by the very high levels of Mercury present in the challenge (post-provocation) urine sample compared to the baseline urine sample.
Another important aspect of the superior characteristics of Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; as a detoxifier is also scientifically documented in urine challenge (post-provocation) tests, proving that Nutrient metals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Lithium, Silver and other critical elements are not bound by Total Zeolite® Extra Strength;. The acid base detoxifiers, EDTA, DMS, DMSA do bind these Nutrient metals and remove them from the body leading to deficiencies and potentially serious side-effects.
This type of scientific laboratory testing is available to you and your clients to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; and to document the improvement over time as the toxic heavy metals are removed from the body.
What is the most effective supplement I can take to rid my body of toxins?
The most exciting newly available natural mineral for removing heavy metal toxins is Total Zeolite® Extra Strength;. It has the capability to eliminate several kinds of toxins, viral sub-particles, allergens and heavy metals from the body.
What is zeolite?
Zeolite is a naturally occurring crystal formed from volcanic ash over 300 million years ago. This crystalline compound has a cage-like, honeycomb structure, which is negatively charged and therefore attracts and captures harmful substances.
How does Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; work?
The cleansing mechanism of Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; is simple. With each dose, near countless numbers of sub micron size zeolite crystals enter the body as energized, negatively charged cages. As these crystal cages travel through the blood stream, heavy metals and free radicals attach to the zeolite crystal cages in an action similar to a magnet attracting iron filings. This unique exchange mechanism is called the cation exchange capacity. These toxin filled cages then pass naturally out of the body after only 5 to 7 hours.
Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; is capable of selectively attracting and binding toxic particles, whether they are heavy metals, radioactive particles, viruses, or other dangerous substances, and safely removing them before they negatively affect overall health. Not only does Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; eliminate toxic buildup, it also enhances immune function, alkalizes the body, improves metabolic function and nutrient absorption, and improves the body’s resistance to diseases like cancer through activity on the p21 suppressor onco-gene. Also, because Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; comes pre-activated with health-promoting ions like calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium, it provides a two-for-one benefit. The exchange removes toxins from the body and replaces them with essential nutrients.
How long have zeolites been used to improve health?
Zeolites, particularly zeolite powder, have a long history in traditional medicine dating back at least a thousand years. Records show that the zeolite has been a part of traditional remedies throughout Asia. More recently zeolite powder was given to victims of the Chernobyl fallout to reduce radiation levels in their bodies. Twenty tons of zeolite was dumped on the Ukraine and Bellarus to bind the radioactive Strontium and Cesium. Zeolites have also been used for decades to improve the digestive health and weight gain of stock animals in Europe and the Mediterranean regions which long ago banned the use of hormones and antibiotics as growth promoters. Zeolites are now being recognized for their exceptional characteristics in promoting human health.
How does Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; remove heavy metals from the body?
The most hazardous heavy metals when it comes to human health are mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic. Despite the known risks associated with heavy metal toxicity, exposure to these toxins continues to increase through the dental practice of using a mercury amalgam and the continued use of the mercury vaccine preservative Thimerosal.
Total Zeolite® Extra Strength;’s negatively charged-matrix structure allows for the attraction, binding and removal of positively-charged particles from the body through a process called “cation exchange.” The heavy metals with the highest affinity for the zeolite in order are: mercury, lead, aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, bismuth, cadmium, cesium, gadolinium, gallium, nickel, niobium, platinum, rubidium, thallium, thorium, tin, tungsten, uranium and others. The binding affinity is based upon charge, size, weight and density of these ions. Once in the matrix, toxins are tightly bound and eliminated though the urinary tract from the body within hours. The long-term effects of using Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; for heavy metal elimination could include reduced risks of cancer and heart disease.
Is Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; another form of oral detoxifications therapy?
The short answer is YES. Oral detoxifications therapy was originally developed to treat heavy metal poisoning especially lead. The term “chemical binding” refers to the ability of a compound to combine with a heavy metal so the toxin can be excreted by the kidneys and liver during detoxification. Traditional detoxifications treatment generally involves taking certain chemicals such as acid-based EDTA, DMSA, and DMPS that have an affinity for certain heavy metals. Many negative effects can occur during acid-based detoxifications therapy due to the weak binding of the agents to the heavy metals that would allow the heavy metals to be re-deposited elsewhere in the body or brain and not be excreted.
Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; however irreversibly binds toxic heavy metals and quickly removes them through the urinary tract. Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; is also able to correct pH by loosely attracting the large Hydrogen ion on the basis of concentration gradient. Acid-based chelating agents make pH worse. The only symptom associated with taking lots of the Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; is possible mild dehydration, which can be easily prevented by drinking plenty of fluids while using the supplement.
Whereas acid-based detoxifications treatments also bind to essential minerals as well as possibly increasing the likelihood that some heavy metals will be absorbed by the body during therapy, Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; does not have these same risks and does not have the same liver and kidney burden as acid-based detoxifications treatment. Pregnant and nursing women are encouraged to use Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; to help decrease toxins going through the placenta to the fetus and to detoxify the breast milk the infant requires.
What are antioxidants and what are the antioxidant properties of Total Zeolite® Extra Strength;?
Although oxygen is necessary for proper cell function, cellular processes involving oxygen to create energy also result in oxidation. Oxidation is a chemical process that results in certain atoms losing electrons and becoming unstable. This is the same process that causes a coin to tarnish or a banana to turn brown. These destabilized molecules are known as free radicals, and they can cause cellular damage by stealing electrons from healthy cells. Between one and three percent of the oxygen we inhale results in the creation of free radicals, and our cells are exposed to billions of free radicals each day.
If free radicals are not neutralized, they can cause premature aging, immune dysfunction and a myriad of diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; has powerful antioxidant properties. Its structure not only traps toxins such as heavy metals, but also free radical molecules. However,unlike classic antioxidants, zeolites do not neutralize free radicals by donating an electron to stabilize them. Instead, the structure of the zeolite is such that it captures the free radical and locks it safely away so that it cannot harm the body. Once trapped in the zeolite, the inactivated free radical can then safely be eliminated from the body.
Also, the more toxic metals residing in the body, the higher the free radical activity. Heavy metals in the body exponentially increase free radical activity and today everyone has far more heavy metals than ever. Thus, removing toxic metals from the body will greatly reduce the number and activity of free radicals.
Can Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; help with colds, flu and other viruses?
Zeolite fights viral infections through a two-pronged approach. First, it is believed to attract and bind viral sub-particles, thereby interfering with viral replication in the body and halting its progression by eliminating them from the body. Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; may also dampen viral proliferation. A study on the antiviral activity of micronized zeolite found that it slowed the proliferation of human enteroviruses and type-1 herpes simplex through nonspecific antiviral activity. The study suggested that there may be a therapeutic application for zeolite in the treatment of herpes virus (topical use) and enterovirus (oral use).
In addition to its broad-spectrum antiviral properties, Total Zeolite® Extra Strength; boosts immune function, which protects the body and helps it fight infection. By interfering with viruses themselves and boosting immunity, zeolite may offer the right combination of safe and natural immune support necessary for optimal health. Because zeolite removes heavy metals and other toxins from the body, the immune system is more likely to be healthier and better able to deal with microbial invaders.
