Liquid zeolites are a mineral supplement derived from volcanic mineral sources. They have been used to effectively facilitate safe and rapid detoxification of heavy metal toxins and other harmful substances. Zeolites have a unique crystaline structure that gives them the power to carry out important roles in the body. The company Waiora has been at the forefront of refining zeolites for therapeutic use, with their liquid zeolite formulation, which has been subjected to research and found to show benefit for health concerns such as cancer and autism. In Asian cultures, zeolites had been used in powdered form as a healing aid. Now, resources of modern science have been applied to create an even more effective way to use zeolites to enhance health.
Toxic elements and compounds can cause a variety of disturbances in the body. They can damage mitochondria, the centers of energy production in cells. They can disrupt enzymes and deplete nutrients in the body. Toxins generate a variety of chain-reaction effects that cause or contribute to illnesses. When these are safely removed from the body, the body can naturally repair and heal itself. Thus, while detoxification therapies don't directly treat a diagnosed illness, they help clear the conditions that have led to the illness and thus allow the body to restore itself to a state of health. Direct treatments for illness often focus on suppressing symptoms rather than helping the body heal itself. To fully resolve an illness it is better to take steps to enable the body to carry out the healing processes that it is capable of.
Zeolites are a valuable healing resource due to their unique mineral content and electrical properties, which allow them to go through the body to capture toxins and flush them out through natural excretion methods. Drinking extra water is important while using zeolites, as the body will be quickly flushing out a lot of toxins. If this is done too rapidly then the excretion channels can become overwhelmed and the body will attempt to cope by creating rashes (excreting toxins through the skin) or other extreme measures to release toxins. As toxins are released there can be some discomfort and even feelings of sickness. When this happens just be sure to continue keeping yourself hydrated and give yourself rest so that your body can better keep up with the toxin release process. You can always lower the zeolite dose to slow down the detox process if desired. Once you have released a lot of toxins you will likely feel much better - and lighter. Your body will be able to handle more energy and your cells will function more effectively since there is no longer a heavy load of toxins stressing and disrupting cellular activities.
If you do any kind of detox you are encouraged to maintain a lifestyle that greatly reduces your stress and toxin exposure. Since you are clearing out that which is toxic and negative it doesn't make sense to clog yourself up with toxins again.
