Heavy Metal Detox Scam
Back in 2008, I personally wanted to research and participate in a heavy metal detox because my friend was telling me how much success and positive experiences he had while doing it. While I did not know much about heavy metal detox programs or protocols at the time, I wanted to study and see which or what was best for me. Much to my surprise, I quickly learned that many people are out to make a few dollars by providing information on heavy metal detox supplements, programs, or benefits and do not provide accurate or good knowledge. While the heavy metal detox scam may be a little harsh to call some programs and supplements, we do feel as though there are many that simply are not up to par, do not produce results, and are not worth the money spent trying to improve your overall health.
Being June 2011, I actually tried 4 different heavy metal detox programs, including supplements, herbal, and liquid detoxification methods. While all produced different results, some good some neutral, the one that REALLY stood out to me personally and could really notice and feel a difference within a week was with a liquid zeolite supplement. Please take a few minutes to read more about heavy metal detox programs and supplements and why I think the best heavy metal detoxification is using a zeolite supplement program in addition to a dietary change and lifestyle.
How To Heavy Metal Detox With Zeolite
In nature, it is possible to find up to 35 metals that all have the potential to cause serious health problems. From these 35 metals, there are 23 metals that are known as ‘heavy metals’ and include antimony, arsenic, bismuth, cadmium, cerium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gallium, gold, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, platinum, silver, tellurium, thallium, tin, uranium, vanadium, and zinc. For anyone seeking to be healthy, it is necessary to have a small amount of these metals. However, it is important to note that only small amounts of these metals are needed and larger amounts may cause toxicity. In large amounts, these metals have the ability to cause a variety of problems for the human body and are often difficult to eliminate.
Similar to pollutants and toxins, these metals are found all around us in food, water, air, and in our environment. Other ways that humans are exposed to these heavy metals are through buildings, seafood, and our work environment. These heavy metals have the ability to cause a range of problems in the short term including damaged functions of the nervous system, lowered energy levels, and damage to the the lungs, kidneys, liver, blood, and other organs. In the long term, heavy metals can cause extensive physical, neurological, and muscular diseases. In addition, these toxicities can cause allergies and a variety of skin problems that include psoriasis, dandruff, and eczema. According to the International Occupational Safety and Health Information Centre, heavy metal toxicities may also cause cancer in some people who have high levels of toxins in their bodies.
Overall, heavy metals tend to alter the regular metabolic functions that are needed for a normal operating body. The body views these metals as foreign entities that must be stopped and can cause the body to act irregularly. These metals also can cause harm to the immune system and cause the body to have a difficult time to heal or recuperate from an illness. Fortunately, there are a variety of products that can help eliminate these metals from the body through a process of detoxification.
Another fact to consider is that metals will accumulate in the body over time. Once consumed, these metals will sit and are not removed easily. Throughout your lifetime, these metals tend to build up and cause damage to the body and various organs. The five metals that tend to cause the most damage are arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum. Truthfully, there is extensive reading available on the internet that relays how detrimental these metals can be. Despite this simple explanation, the process of metal toxicity is a lot worse than stated and can reek havoc on anyone’s body.
Now that we have your attention, we also want to provide a means to detoxify your body from these dangerous metals. One of the best solutions is zeolite. Zeolite can be found naturally in the world and has a structure that can effectively attract metals. Since zeolite is negatively charged, it attracts metals and helps pull them out of the body. Zeolite is available in various forms including zeolite powder, zeolite capsules, and liquid zeolite. This mineral is so powerful that it was actually used during the Chernobyl incident to help capture radiation and metals by covering the site with zeolite.
What are Zeolites?
Zeolites are minerals that are found when hot lava meets with alkaline water from either an ocean or a lake. This mineral is 100 percent all-natural and has been recognized by the FDA as safe for the consumption in humans. Clinoptilolite is part of the zeolite family and is unique due to its honeycomb-like structure. This structure is able to attract toxins, impurities, and heavy metals while removing them from the body. This special ability to bind to toxins has even been documented by the Russian government as very effective in capturing foreign impurities, as seen in the Chernobyl incident.
Toxic metals that have been captured by zeolite are passed through the body in both urine and fecal matter. Roughly, 60 percent of zeolite will be excreted through the body through urine and the remaining 40 percent is passed through feces. Typically, all zeolite that has been consumed will be eliminated from the body within four to seven hours. Due to its quick absorption and excretion, zeolite is safe to consume and large doses are just as harmless as small doses.
As an antioxidant, zeolite is different because it completely traps the toxins in the body, rather than just binding to free radicals and canceling them out. Its complex structure is able to eliminate them from the system completely and makes this mineral unique when compared to other antioxidants. Ultimately, zeolite has the ability to help remove heavy metals from the body and can do so in a manner that is safe and effective.
