Dr. Atmika Paudel, PhD says... the article below about zeolite, (clinoptilolite) uses, benefits and safety issues is medically correct.
Zeolite, clinoptilolite, is a very safe option for mercury poisoning treatment and the removal of other heavy metals. You don't have to see a doctor and under go intravenous injections with DMPS chelation therapy. The side effects from dmps can be very uncomfortable, and if you ask anyone that has done it, they will usually tell you that they won't do it again.
Zeolite is a negatively charged mineral that magnetically draws harmful positive charged metals to itself. It traps them in its cage-like structure and takes them out of the body with no overload on the body's detoxification system.
Zeolite does not accumulate in the body and does not attach itself to body tissues. It remains suspended while drawing out heavy metals that are attached to body tissues. This process allows the body to dispose of the metals through its normal detoxification processes. It reduces any die-off symptoms caused by the mycotoxins that candida can produce.
It has an affinity to first attract mercury and then other heavy metals. Then it starts working on other chemicals and toxins and attracting viral particles to itself. Not only is it a potent, fast acting heavy metal detoxifier, it is a virus and a Candida killer.
A virus is too large to be captured in its molecular structure, but when a virus replicates it splits into viral particles. Zeolite attracts and captures these viral particles. This prevents the virus from spreading and the immune system can catch up and destroy the remaining virus.
It raises intestinal ph restoring the correct balance of acidity in the small and large intestine. The rising ph levels promote the growth of good bacteria thus helping to restore your bacterial imbalance to normal.
Zeolite is very good for the treatment of mercury poisoning and other metals. It tends to work fast and is completely safe.
Highly toxic individuals may experience a lightheaded feeling and mental fogginess. If it is too severe, I recommend dropping the dose until the symptoms are tolerable. If this happens to you, start gradually raising the dose every few days until you get back to the recommended detox doses as the symptoms ease. Then continue at that dose for 60 days and retest for heavy metals to see where you are. If the levels are still too high, then continue for another 60 days and retest. Continue as long as needed.
There is a lot of controversy over whether liquid zeolite or powdered micronized zeolite is the most effective treatment for heavy metal poisoning. The powdered manufacturers of zeolite products claim all research done on zeolite as a chelator have been done with the powdered form. You can read some of the studies on powdered zeolite through the links below.

Enterex Zeolite Study for Diarrhea
Studies suggest that the liquification process destroys the beneficial cage structure and negative charge because they use hydrochloric acid in the process. The studies also agree that it takes a dose of between 4,000mg to 15,000mg per day to get the full use of zeolites health benefits. Liquid forms commonly only contain 240mgs per bottle which would indicate they are a complete rip-off.
However, I have found one independent study on the liquid zeolite product recommended below that proves it does work. This study was released in November 2009. This testimonial below;
I thought you might want to know that I have used NCD Zeolite for about eight months to have completely cleansed my body from Mercury and metals. I started with 10 drops three times a day and in the last two months increased to 20 drops. Zeolite has cleaned up all mercury in my back and shoulders especially around my spine!! It is a gift from Heaven. I see a European Chiropractor and he can test my body for Mercury and Amalgam using muscle testing. He gave me a clean bill now. I have no metals, fungus, he tested me for many bacteria and viruses and I was clean of everything!! I feel so much better and have a lot more energy. I thought you might want to know that since I learned about NCD Zeolite on your website!!
would suggest that liquid zeolite does work, but I sure would like to see a urine challenge test and not muscle testing as proof. You can read that study here, Waiora Zeolite Study, if you choose too.
Zeolite Pure vs Waiora NCD & ACZ Nano Extra Strength
for Heavy Metals
This study compared the three products above across a wide range of metals for effectiveness. Basically it was found that the two liquids, Waiora NCD & ACZ Nano Extra Strength, when taken at the recommended dose, do not work as advertised. The Zeolite Pure powder removed aluminum, antimony, arsenic, barium, cadmium, cesium, gallium, lead, mercury, nickel, platinum, thallium, tin and tungsten. The two liquids removed antinomy, barium, nickel, platinum, rubidium, tin and tungsten in much lower amounts. After reviewing this study, in my opinion, liquid zeolites are a complete waste of money.
Zeolite Pure comes in one pound cans and the detox dose is one scoop three times per day. Each dose is 5000mgs and this is a faster and much less expensive way to detox mercury or other heavy metals than liquid zeolite. I would take the Zeolite Pure for 2 months then retest through the urine challenge test.
For those that prefer capsules, I highly recommend Zeolite-AV or Royal Detox. Especially Royal Detox, which also contains proven herbs and nutraceuticals that are proven to remove heavy metals.
The best place to buy liquid cellular zeolite that I have found is over at Amazon. You want the Natural Cellular Defense by Waiora.
You want to take 20 drops 2 x a day away from food for 2 months then retest your mercury levels. If the detox effects are too uncomfortable, lower the dose and then work your way back up from there. After 2 months at the 20 drops 2 x a day, retest by doing the urine challenge test.
You would need 4 bottles to complete two months at their suggested dose but you can always take more. But what I recommend is to take DMSA as recommended here, and on the off days take zeolite. This greatly speeds up the detoxification process.
As far as the liquid zeolite studies go, if you happen to come across one verifying they do work, let me know about it so I can share it with everyone else through the website.
Zeolites can be taken forever with no ill effects; they are completely safe and have recently obtained GRAS status by the FDA.
Zeolite is a powerful detoxifier and viral killer that can only be of benefit to someone with candida and high levels of mercury or other metals.
The most common zeolite that is being used is clinoptilolite. The article explains about zeolite, and in my understanding the article is talking about clinoptilolite. This should be clearly mentioned in the article because some of the natural zeolites, for example, erionite, is harmful and causes mesotheliomas and fibrosis. (1) Article has been corrected to reflect we are talking about clinoptilolite.
Several in vitro experiments have shown that zeolite has some antiviral activities. (2)(3)
There are several clinical trials that have shown use of zeolite has beneficial effects. For example, artificially enhanced clinoptilolite was used in a clinical trial to treat patients with irritable bowel syndrome who responded well. (4)
Another clinical trial tested the effect of zeolite supplementation in the biomarkers of intestinal wall permeability and parameters of oxidation and inflammation, and the results showed that zeolite supplementation was beneficial in aerobically trained men and women.(5)
There is a review paper published in Frontiers in Pharmacology which gives an overall picture of the usage of zeolite in veterinary and human medicine as well as the safety issues related to the use of zeolite.(6)
There are many clinoptilolite-based products for veterinary as well as human use, mostly animal studies have been performed with some clinical trials. However; clinical trials examining the long term effects are still lacking.

I have mercury in my mouth and perhaps in my brain as well. What do you recommend?
I'm a 79 year old woman and I had many mercury fillings. I am now starting to loose my memory. What product do you recommend?
A nursing mothers experience with Zeolite Pure
I just wanted to let you know how things are going. We have been detoxing for a month now, getting to know Zeolite quite well. It has been a most curious journey so far.
It took me a while to get the Colosan right but it has become a true asset. Zeolite was easy, comparatively. Since we are nursing, I started very low dosages and kept observing Tsai's balance and my skin. If my skin gets rough I know to watch out for Tsai's reactions to nursing. If he gets a bit wobbly I know it is time for another dose but this happened only a couple of times during the first two weeks.
Within minutes of taking the Zeolite I could feel a pulling sensation in the parts of the body that were letting go of mercury as the low-mercury blood went through the tissues. The first day I felt like someone had hooked a vacuum cleaner internally to my heart and kidneys, then the pulling went to my head, especially the eyes and anything sinus, as well as reproductive organs. Then, it stayed in the head and neck area but also went to the spleen and thyroid. As time goes on, especially after the first two weeks, the response has become more and more spread, faint and general. I am up to two teaspoons a day broken into five doses and these days the pulling is still in the head and eyes, also core muscle tissues on the inside of the spine, hip joint area, lymph nodes. I also had a couple days where pulling was exclusively on the right half of the body (as in right half of head, right lymph nodes and right kidney and hip). Then it went to the left-hand side but everything was much more muddled there. The main pulling now is in the central nervous system - brain, eyes and spine. Makes sense to me but it is truly fascinating to feel it in the body.
I found a comment in the margin of "Nourishing Traditions" that says raw cilantro can dislodge toxins from the CNS, and that beets help the liver gear up its detox functions. Of course, I had to try it out - I feel a boost of the pulling within a half-hour of eating a fair amount of raw cilantro (e.g. in a cilantro pesto sauce). Following beet, I can feel the area by the liver get tight as if there is something working very hard. The response to beet takes longer, more like several hours, overnight or half a day-ish.
I can't wait to see what my body feels like when I stop to retest. I can already tell that huge improvements are being made. Today, we see a naturopath specializing in detox who agrees with the approach so far and will help support it further. We think we will focus on getting the stuff out of me a.s.a.p. and keeping the little guy stable on his touch of Zeolite. When I'm "clean", we can help his body detox further by natural means. In the meantime, we will help his adrenal system recalibrate. At least that is the idea right now.
Hope you are well, and will keep you posted.
