WHAT IS ZEOLITE?
Many years ago, volcanoes erupted and poured lava into the sea. The combination of lava, ash and salt from the sea caused a chemical reaction, and over thousands of years zeolites began to form in the hardened lava.
This mineral has been found to be of great benefit to us, especially since it removes toxins. The zeolite’s honeycomb-like framework of cavities and channels (like cages) works at the cellular level trapping heavy metals and toxins, removing them safely and naturally from our system. Since toxins cause cancer, this is indeed a tremendous find!*.
Today, detox is not an option, it’s a necessity!
Toxins are everywhere – in the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe.
Every cell in our bodies is under constant attack from toxins. Heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminum and countless other toxins attack our body’s defenses, causing us to age, get headaches, feel tired, get sick and the list goes on and on… but you no doubt already know this.
WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW IS WHY WE RECOMMEND ZEOLITE AND THIS ONE IN PARTICULAR…
Since there are many ways to detox your body, you may be wondering if zeolite is really a good idea or if something else might be better. You may be thinking that if it is so great, it would have made big news in papers, magazines and TV by now. Not so, and here’s why.
Zeolite is a mineral, so it hasn’t made news for the very same reason sun-ripened fruits and vegetables haven’t. Mother Nature puts the phyto-nutrients into fruits and vegetables as they ripen, and that is what keeps us healthy and free of disease, including cancer. Yet to this day that is largely kept quiet, mostly because research and drugs are VERY BIG BUSINESS! Can you imagine how many would be out of work if it were suddenly announced that we do indeed have a cure for most cancer, or even if it was announced that there is a preventive? Besides the business angle, the law is written so the word ‘cure’ is really a word to describe the effects of a DRUG.
If the product is not a drug and has not been demonstrated to have some effect in a laboratory clinical study, then it is by definition not a cure.
For this reason, even though we know sun-ripened apples and zeolite contribute much to our good health, we can make no claim that they prevent or cure anything, since they are not drugs. Many people believe something needs to change! Why have our laws been changed so we are not allowed to claim any cures for the natural foods we get from Mother Nature? Shouldn’t we put more money into prevention of disease and much less into the management of these diseases through drugs? Shouldn’t we be able to claim that some natural foods and plants cure? Many rely on aloe for burns, etc., but unless it is changed by adding chemicals, it cannot be claimed to heal. We believe this is very wrong.
Since most of our fruits and veggies are picked green, it is necessary to get those sun-ripened nutrients and important minerals in our vitamins and unfortunately most companies don’t do that because it would not only cost them more, many of them are not even aware they should, so people get sick and BLAME EVERYTHING BUT their nutrition, vitamins and minerals, for the fact they get colds, flu, cancer, etc..
We learned that many years ago a biochemist from a small pharmaceutical company in Ohio, Rik J. Deitsch, was intrigued by the power of zeolites. He researched it, purified it, and found some amazingly powerful effects from it. He was then given a patent on the very important cleaning process- #6,288,045 by the U.S. government. Rik J. Deitsch is a nutritional and research biochemist, who is president of NDA Consulting, Inc., a biotechnology research group. He is also Chairman of the Waiora Scientific Advisory Board, and he is in charge of all the research concerning this natural healing substance. It is hoped that the FDA will eventually allow this mineral to be recognized as the healing substance that it is, but so far the FDA will only give it GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status.
Yes, Zeolite has been proven to help rid our bodies of toxic build-up with its unique activation process. We believe Natural Cellular Defense (NCD) is the most effective detox on the planet and in this world of increasing toxic products, the most recent being GMO, we believe it is extremely important to get those toxins OUT of our bodies!

DR. GABRIEL COUSENS M.D. wrote an excellent review on Natural Cellular Defense in 2008 that we would like to share with you here.
Toxins poison our air, our water, our food and our bodies. According to the EPA, 70,000 chemicals are used commercially in the USA, 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health. The Environmental Defense Council reports that more than four billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment each year, including 72 million pounds of known carcinogens.
Cancer fatalities account for approximately 12% of all deaths worldwide each year. Across the globe, 10.9 million people are diagnosed with cancer annually and 6.7 million die because of it. According to the World Health Organization, global cancer rates could increase by 50% in the next 15 years. The USA ranks in the top three countries with the highest cancer rate in both men and women.
The toxic onslaught doesn’t stop with carcinogens. A joint study by Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, Commonwealth, and the Environmental Working Group in 2003 identified a total of 167 hazardous compounds in the blood and urine of American adults (with an average of 91 per person tested), including 76 known to cause cancer, 94 that are toxic to the nervous system, 82 that damage the lungs, 86 that affect hormone function, and 79 that cause birth defects. A study by the Environmental Working Group in 2004 found a total of 287 industrial chemicals in babies umbilical-cord blood, including 180 known to cause cancer, 217 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 that cause birth or development defects in animals.
As many as 25% of Americans are estimated to suffer from some degree of heavy metal poisoning, particularly from mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic. We are also exposed to a significant amount of radiation and increasing viral attacks. Our immune systems are further compromised by poor nutrition and unhealthy lifestyles, and most of us suffer from an excessively acidic pH leve, which creates an internal environment in which cancer – as well as viral, bacterial and fungal infections – can thrive.
In my work to develop a detoxification system for prospective mothers to enable them to bring non-toxic babies into the world, I have searched for a simple, natural remedy that could serve as a practical antidote for toxicity. Recently, I learned about Zeolite, a naturally occurring, negatively charged mineral, with a unique crystalline structure. Zeolite is formed from the fusion of volcanic lava and ocean water, and combines four elements – air, earth, water and fire. It has been used for 800 years throughout Asia as a remedy to promote overall health and well-being, and for 30 years in the USA in animal feed. It has also undergone 13 years of pharmaceutical research in the USA with humans. Zeolite is included on the Food and Drug Administration’s GRAS list (Generally Recognized As Safe) and thus is considered to be “completely safe”.
A biochemist from a small pharmaceutical company in Ohio researched and purified zeolite, was amazed by its potential, and was granted a patent (US #6,288,045). That patent is now held by Rik J Deitsch, a nutritional and research biochemist, who leases it to Waiora, the company that markets purified zeolite as Natural Cellular Defense.
Zeolite may well be one of the most potent natural preventatives and treatments for cancer ever discovered. LifeLink Pharmaceuticals recently completed a preliminary 14 month, open-label study of 65 level four, terminal-stage cancer patients. These people had various types of cancer, and all of them had been sent home to die. After taking purified zeolite, 51 of them (78%) experienced complete remission, which means that their cancer disappeared. This preliminary research suggests that purified and activated Zeolite’s mechanism of action against cancer cells is unique and unlike that of any other substance I have studied. Theoretically, it has the rare ability to take in a tremendous amount of positively charged toxins, indirectly neutralizing their effect in causing cancer. In the process, the zeolite develops a slight positive charge. It is then attracted to and pulled right into the negatively charged membrane of the cancer cell. When the zeolite moves inside the cancer cell, the cell’s P21 gene is activated This gene acts as a tumor suppressor through its ability to control cell-cycle progression. The activation of P21 appears to halt the growth of tumors by directly suppressing growth signals.
During in-vitro studies using zeolite, all cancer cells tested were destroyed within 72 hours (LifeLink Pharmaceuticals, US Patent #6288045, 2001). This is a claim that cannot be made about any other substance. However, because it is still in the preliminary research phase, it is too soon to declare that zeolite is a cure for cancer.
What we can say is that zeolite has a chelation-like effect in removing heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides and other positively charged toxins from the system. Zeolite’s negatively charged crystalline structure is what makes this possible. Its crystals act as cages, inside of which are positive ions. These positive ions switch places with positively charged toxins in the body, tightly bind them, and excrete them completely. One of the benefits of binding toxins in this manner is that they are 100% excreted. Heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides all leave the system; they do not get deposited elsewhere in the body. Forty percent of zeolite binds heavy metals in the gastrointestinal tract, and 60% binds toxins in the bloodstream and at the cellular level. Zeolite’s binding power was proven during the Chernobyl disaster, when tons of it were used to remove radioactive cesium and strontium-90 before they contaminated local water systems. Acting primarily as a chelator, zeolite trapped these radioactive minerals within its crystalline cage structure.
Zeolite appears to remove toxins from the body in a hierarchical order. It first acts strongly to remove lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. This first phase may take one to four weeks or longer. Zeolite then removes second-priority toxins, including pesticides, herbicides and plastics. Zeolite appears to increase the rate of glucuronization in the liver, activating phase 2 of the glucuronidase function. This in turn removes pesticides, herbicides and xenon-estrogens from the body, releasing them through the urine. Interestingly, it also appears to neutralize the aflatoxin poison.
A third function of zeolite is to trap pre-virus components, preventing the replication of viruses and their ability to make us sick. In this way, zeolite may play an important role as a broad-spectrum anti-viral. Viruses are produced in parts as on a production line, at the end of which the virus is fully constructed. Zeolite absorbs viral parts into the pores of the mirconized zeolite aggregates (not into the chelating-like cages described above). This explains why zeolite seems to block the development of many viral infections, including herpes virus 1, coxsachie virus B-5, ecco-virus 7 and adeno virus 5. Forty anecdotal cases of herpes zoster have reportedly been cured, with sufferers becoming pain-free in 1 to 3 days after beginning to take zeolite. Anecdotal testimony also reports that it is effective in alleviating or curing the flu, colds, hepatitis C, viral or heavy metal induced multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Zeolite’s effect as an anti-viral appears to be a preventative function that builds over time, beginning after approximately 4 to 6 weeks of use, when heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides have been mostly eliminated. There is anecdotal evidence, however, that in some cases its anti-viral effect seems to be immediate.
Zeolite also is a unique antioxidant. A traditional antioxidant works by absorbing excess free radicals into its system because it has an unpaired electron. In contrast, zeolite traps free radicals in its complex structure, inactivating and eliminating them. In this way, it acts as a complement to traditional antioxidants.
In addition, zeolite buffers the system towards slight alkalinity by establishing pH levels of 7.35 to 7.45, which is the optimum pH for the human body. The body’s pH levels influences both immunity and brain function. An acid blood pH (7.34 or lower) creates a precondition for cancer. In an acid environment, brain cell function can also be impaired, causing depression, anxiety, stupor, paranoia, delusions, hallucinations or even psychosis.
Zeolites also appears to balance the immune system, either up or down regulating it as needed. Although the precise mechanism for this is not entirely understood, this function is clearly very important in a world in which most people’s immune systems are seriously compromised.
Because zeolite so powerfully removes various types of toxins from the body, it naturally increases energy and well being. Users report improvements in mental clarity and a sense of peace, wellness and happiness. These are what we term positive secondary effects. For example, clearing out heavy metals allows the body’s magnesium stores to work efficiently with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the biological source of energy in the body. When this interaction is occurring optimally, people have more energy and experience greater well-being. One study has demonstrated that zeolite also appears to increase serotonin level, which is known to help alleviate some forms of depression.
Zeolite shows promise as an effective detoxifier for women who plan to become pregnant. Recently, at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, it was added to the protocol for the 10 day detoxification program for prospective mothers. In 2 women who just completed the program, toxins in their breast tissue dropped significantly – from 12 in on and 13 in the other to only 2 – in 7 days. Toxins in their liver and brain tissue also dropped to an average of only two.
Based on centuries of use in Asia and anecdotal accounts of its use by pregnant women, zeolite appears to be safe even for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. However, its safe use in pregnancy has not been tested in double-blind studies, and so no claims for safe use in pregnancy can be made.
Zeolite is commercially available in a purified and activated form, in the product Natural Cellular Defense. There are no reports of side effects, except one: because of its natural action to absorb water, zeolite can cause dehydration. It is therefore important to drink sufficient water (approximately eight glasses a day) both before and while taking Natural Cellular Defense to ensure adequate hydration.
There is only one contraindication: Natural Cellular Defense is contraindicated for anyone taking a medication containing heavy metals, such as lithium or containing platinum, which is found in some cancer medications. Before taking Natural Cellular Defense, check with your doctor to determine if your medication contains heavy metals or platinum.
I take Natural Cellular Defense, and I feel that everyone living in the industrial world should be taking it on a regular basis. This product is very different from supplements that add to well-being, but are not essential. Natural Cellular Defense is simple, elegant, extraordinary and vital for healthy living in today’s toxic world. I believe this most unique, natural substance is an alchemical gift from God to help us face our present-day health challenges due to ecological ignorance or, as they are called in Ayurveda, prajna prathara or crimes against nature.
