The Magic of Zeolite Clay

At Natural Healing Tools, we have written many times about various clay products. Some are external only, like our clay foot baths, while other clay can be used as either an external or internal health product. 

Zeolite clay has remarkable qualities. It can be used externally for facials, drawing baths, tooth powder and for bits and stings. Internally it can increase stomach pH and is used for various detox, anti cancer, and anti aging supplementation.  

What is Zeolite?

Clinoptilolite zeolite is a non-toxic, deeply detoxifying, alkalizing dietary supplement earth clay that can be taken internally and externally to help rid the body of toxins such as heavy metals, ammonia, and other harmful environmental chemicals. Benefits increase with continued usage. It naturally holds a negative charge and will bond with toxins for safe and effective removal. It can also be used externally for face and body masks, or added into bath water for a detoxifying bath.

Clinoptilolite zeolite originated millions of years ago when lava and volcanic ash fell into the sea and boiled there (zeo = to boil, lite = stone). Silicon (SI02) is the second most common element on our planet next to oxygen. Everyone knows we can't live without oxygen, but many people don't realize they also cannot live without silicon.

Clinoptilolite zeolite (only this form of zeolite is suitable for medicinal purposes) a SiO2 donor, it permits ion exchange, such as effecting the release of heavy metal content from the body and making essential ions (minerals) accessible. Furthermore, clinoptilolite zeolite can disarm free-radicals, bind and digest toxic substances and effect de-acidification. Clinoptilolite zeolite can also have a positive effect on the body’s metabolic processes, such as promoting more efficient transport of nutrients to cells.

Clinoptilolite zeolite does not have a biochemical effect on the body but a biophysical one and with this capacity is able to optimally manage a self-regulatory function, thus normalizing the body’s metabolic processes, which may have been disturbed by environmental pollution.

Clinoptilolite zeolite has no undesirable side-effects, cannot be overdosed, has been scientifically proven to have a biophysical effect, and is eliminated in the stool.

What Could Zeolite Do for Me?

Clinoptilolite zeolite has shown tendencies to:
  • delay aging
  • anti diarrhetic
  • anti cancer 
  • improve mental functions
  • use for heavy metal detox
  • strengthens the immune system
  • prevent susceptibility to infection
  • ensure well-regulated mineral-electrolyte and bioelectrical functions
For competitive athletes, clinoptilolite zeolite ensures the regulation of the mineral-balance (which can be disturbed during heavy perspiration), and the breakdown of free radicals, which are produced by athletes in high concentrations and are often the cause of injuries. Clinoptilolite zeolite leads to increased regeneration of all body processes after extreme physical strain and protects the athlete from damages to his/her health.

Effective treatment of chronic illness resulting from the long-term buildup of heavy metals in the body, such as chelation therapy, presents numerous clinical challenges, including undesirable side effects and unpredictable efficacy. Use of a naturally occurring zeolite, clinoptilolite, to remove these toxic substances may offer an efficacious and safe alternative to the traditional approaches.

As always follow label directions from the manufacturer and check with your personal health professional on adding a supplement or starting a detox. We suggest you drink extra water when taking zeolite internally.
