Pure Liquid Zeolite
Frequently Asked Questions
This is a very common reaction to this product. By removing the toxins that impede metabolic processes including healing, liquid zeolite allows the body to achieve a state in which it can heal itself much more effectively. According to biochemist Rik Deitsch, many of the benefits are downstream consequences of its primary abilities to detoxify the body and balance systemic pH.
If I take liquid zeolite to restore or maintain health, do I need to do anything else?
Please understand zeolite is NOT a magic potion, nor is any other product. It is however, an incredible tool to use in the journey to perfect health. NCD2 Liquid Zeolite can indeed do all that it claims, however to restore and maintain optimum health, you still need to make positive changes like cutting down on unhealthy and acid causing foods such as, sugars, white flours, dairy, and red meats. By increasing your intake of leafy greens, raw vegetables and supplementing minerals you cannot get through food, you will assist the body to return to a more alkaline state necessary for health. Implicit to health is also choosing organic or bio-dynamic products where possible, getting rid of unhealthy habits like smoking etc. and learning to develop a positive mental attitude. Doing all of these things, will help ensure a lasting positive change to your health.
Is there research to back up the claims?
No claim could be responsibly made for liquid zeolite unless it was substantiated by research. Although liquid zeolite is a new product, zeolites are very well researched, and there are many tried and tested medical and industrial uses for this mineral complex. There are many studies on the health benefits of liquid zeolite . (The first, on the NCD brand of liquid zeolite, was published in May 2008 which opened the door for further published research). Visit the scientific reports page to view some of these papers.
Are there any drawbacks or side effects of Zeolites?
The only side effect of liquid zeolite is dehydration as heavy metal ions are removed from the body. For that reason, it is essential to be well hydrated when taking zeolites. Drink at least ½ ounce of pure water for every pound you weigh (typically eight or 10 glasses of water a day). Drinks such as coffee, tea, and soda do not count.
Some users experience detoxification symptoms, such as headache, diarrhea, tiredness, or achiness – which are usually mild – when they begin taking liquid zeolite. After initial detoxification, most people report feeling better than ever. Biochemist Rik Deitsch believes that, in nine out of 10 cases, these are side effects of dehydration, and most improve when the person drinks enough water.
Who should take liquid zeolite?
According to Dr. Gabriel Cousens of the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona, everyone should take liquid zeolite because of the toxicity to which we are all exposed. He says, “I recommend that as long as we choose to keep eating, breathing, and drinking water, we keep taking liquid zeolite.” Dr. Cousens uses the following case to make his point for the ongoing use of liquid zeolite: “We recently tested a woman who was a long-term vegan, eating a live-food diet, and found that she had in her liver, breast, and brain tissue nine of the toxins we test for, such as DDT, dioxin, and dildren. She stopped taking liquid zeolite for a month and ate dairy products (which are at least 5.5 times higher in toxins than vegetables are) for one week. She was then re-tested and found to have all 14 of the toxins we test for in the liver, breast, and brain. Needless to say, she’s back on liquid zeolite and off dairy.”
Can children take liquid zeolite?
Children live in the same toxic world that we do but, because their bodies are developing, they are more susceptible to toxic influences than adults are. liquid zeolite is not only safe for children but could be beneficial for them during their developmental years. Give them a smaller dose in proportion to their weight than the dose an average adult would take. (See directions for using liquid zeolite.)
Can liquid zeolite safely be taken by pregnant or nursing women?
Although anecdotal evidence and centuries of use in Asia suggest that zeolites are safe to use even during pregnancy and breastfeeding, its safe use in pregnant and nursing women has not been proven in double-blind studies. However, the US FDA considers zeolite to be safe for anyone. liquid zeolite is non-toxic, and there is no build up in the body.
How long does liquid zeolite remain in the body?
Research shows that liquid zeolite stays in the body about five to seven hours before it is 100% eliminated. This is why directions state that it should be taken three or four times a day, in order to maintain adequate levels in the body.
How many drops of NCD2 should I take to detoxify my body?
Dr. Gabriel Cousens recommends that his clients take a detoxification dose of 10 to 15 drops three times a day for six to eight weeks. This is the initial dosage that most of his adult clients take, and he recommends that they repeat this dose at least twice a year. After six to eight weeks, they switch to a maintenance dose of three to five drops three times per day, increasing the amount if there is a viral, chemical, or other exposure. (See directions for liquid zeolite.)
I have cancer. How many drops of Zeolite should I take?
For people with any serious health challenges, Dr. Gabriel Cousens recommends two to three drops per hour. Some oncologists are having excellent results by having their patients take this dosage. If this schedule cannot be maintained, the dosage of 15 drops three to four times a day is recommended.
Can I take too much liquid zeolite?
Zeolites are very safe and non-toxic, but you are wasting it if you take more than 15 drops of NCD2 at a time. In addition, by taking doses larger than 15 drops, it’s possible to trigger a healing crisis with detoxification symptoms. If you want to increase your dosage, take 15 drops more often — four times rather than three times a day – or take two to three drops per hour.
Should liquid zeolite be taken with food or on an empty stomach?
It appears to work just as efficiently either way. However, it is best taken in an eight-ounce glass of water to help insure adequate hydration throughout the day.
Can I take Zeolite in coffee or tea?
Yes. The zeolite in liquid zeolite is unaffected by temperatures under approximately 900°F (480°C).
Why is detoxification of my body important?
The average person is exposed to more toxins through water and air pollution, household cleaning supplies, pesticides, disinfectants, and food additives than ever before in human history. According to the EPA, 70,000 chemicals are used commercially in the U.S., 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. These toxins are strongly correlated with the occurrence of a wide range of diseases, including cancers, birth defects, and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s, autism, and dementia.
In the world we live in today, detoxification is essential to prevent disease and create optimal health.What kinds of toxins are in our bodies?PCBs, dioxins, phthalates, DDT, and furans are just some of the chemicals that are commonly found in human tissue and blood. A 2003 study by Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and the Environmental Working Group 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. Included among these compounds were highly toxic heavy metals such as lead, aluminum, and mercury, and numerous herbicides and pesticides. A similar study the following year by the Environmental Working Group found 287 industrial chemicals in babies’ umbilical-cord blood – with an average of 200 chemicals in each newborn tested – including 180 known to cause cancer and 217 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system. These tests are part of a new field of scientific study known as body burden analysis, and the findings are truly frightening.
How does liquid zeolite differ from classic chelators that pull heavy metals and toxins out of the body?
There are major differences in how zeolites works, in its effect on the body, and in its cost. Classic chelating agents are non-specific in terms of what they attract. For example, one commonly used chelator attracts anything that has a +2 charge. Thus, it takes lead out of the body but also eliminates calcium and magnesium, necessitating supplementation. Liquid zeolites negatively charged cage attracts minerals and toxins that have a positive charge, but its attraction is also based on molecular structure and size as well as other factors. Therefore, it eliminates lead but not calcium or magnesium.
Zeolites effect on the body is milder than that of classic chelators. Liquid zeolite removes toxins by placing the ions in the zeolites molecular cage. It effectively inactivates the toxins’ ions, preventing them from reacting with the body as they are being expelled. (That reactivity is common with other chelators and is popularly called a detox syndrome or healing crisis.) The heavy metals and other toxins bound up by liquid zeolite are unable to do any damage to the kidneys or bladder in the process of being eliminated. The only type of reaction that liquid zeolite can cause is slight dehydration, which is easily prevented or remedied by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
Finally, detoxifying with liquid zeolite is much less expensive than using classic chelating agents. Traditional chelation is done in a series of intravenous treatments. Just one of these sessions can cost more than six weeks of liquid zeolite at the detoxification dose.
How can zeolites remove toxic metals such as lead and mercury but not healthy ones such as calcium and magnesium?
Zeolites ability to attract and bind different substances is based on the size, shape, and electrical configuration of its molecular cages. Zeolites greatest affinity is with heavy metals, especially mercury, cadmium, lead, and arsenic. Lighter metals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous have smaller ions, and so their affinity to zeolite is orders of magnitude less. You can think of it as being similar to a lion’s cage. The bars keep the lion in, but a mouse can run freely in and out. In much the same way, zeolites trap and eliminate heavy metals and other toxins, while it leaves minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus in the body.
Does Zeolite remove toxins that are not positively charged?
The zeolite in solution attracts and traps positively charged particles that fit into the pores and channels of the zeolites cage. These include heavy metals, nitrosamines, and some viral particles. Most pharmaceuticals, herbicides, and hormone mimetics are either uncharged or negatively charged, and so have little affinity with zeolites. However, liquid zeolite does appear to have an indirect effect on these compounds. Most are eliminated through liver-induced glucuronidation, and there is published evidence that liver function is improved as a result of taking liquid zeolite. Like many of the benefits of liquid zeolite, the elimination of these toxins is a downstream consequence of liquid zeolites primary abilities – detoxifying the body and balancing systemic pH. Based on studies that he is conducting at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, Dr. Gabriel Cousens has found that fasting in combination with the use of liquid zeolite greatly improves the elimination of toxins that have a negative or neutral charge.
I’ve read that there’s a chemical in Teflon that may cause cancer. Does liquid zeolite remove it?
An EPA advisory board has called one of the chemicals in Teflon a likely carcinogen. That chemical is perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Studies have found that PFOA is present in low levels in the blood of 90% of Americans, which is not surprising given that Teflon is very widely used. Approximately 70% of the cookware sold in the U.S. has a non-stick coating.
Recently, at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, eight people who had tested positive for Teflon and PFOA had almost no traces of either substance after completing a week-long green-juice fast that included 15 drops of liquid zeolite four times per day.
Since liquid zeolite removes foreign metal ions from the body, can it attack dental fillings, hip replacements, or breast implants?
The mechanism by which liquid zeolite removes heavy metals from the body is entirely passive – it only removes metal ions that are in free solution. There is no way that it can pull titanium from hip replacements or silicon from breast implants. No, it will not. The zeolite in the liquid zeolite attracts and traps small, highly-charged particles that fit into the pores and channels of the zeolite cage. This includes heavy metals (Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, etc.), nitrosamines and some viral particles
Is liquid zeolite a supplement or a drug?
Liquid zeolite is sold as a food supplement, and yet there is a patent for its use as an epithelial cell cancer treatment. Many food supplements, such as Vitamin C and Omega 3 fatty acids, can be used therapeutically, but that does not make them drugs. Dr. Harvey Kaufman, the cancer researcher who formulated liquid zeolite, originally planned to move forward with the FDA drug-approval process. However, bringing a new drug to market is extremely expensive and time-consuming, and the challenge proved to be daunting. Dr. Kaufman then introduced liquid zeolite to biochemist Rik Deitsch. Recognizing the product to be safe, natural, and non-toxic, Deitsch knew it could be brought to market much faster and at a much lower cost as a nutritional supplement rather than as a drug.
If liquid zeolite is not a drug, why is the patent labeled Epithelial Cell Cancer Drug?
The patent for liquid zeolite is U.S. #6,288,045. The application was submitted for patent consideration under the title “Epithelial Cell Cancer Drug,” and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office adopted that name as the patent title. However, the term drug is the legal term given to a product (whether natural or not) that is approved by the FDA. Companies marketing drugs are allowed to make specific product claims that cannot be made about products that are not approved as drugs.
Can liquid zeolite cure cancer?
Liquid zeolite is not approved as a drug, and so no claim can be made that it cures, treats, or prevents cancer or any other disease. It would be illegal to do so as well as irresponsible on the basis of the studies that have been done to date.
What we can say is that zeolites have a unique mechanism of action against cancer cells. Theoretically, they have the rare ability to take in a tremendous amount of positively charged toxins, indirectly neutralising 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, and possibly activating the cell’s P21 gene. The P21 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. We can also say that liquid zeolite has made a difference for many people with cancer. In one unpublished study involving 65 people with terminal cancer of all types, 78 percent were in complete remission for more than 12 months at the end of 2005 (LifeLink Pharmaceuticals, 2005).
Does liquid zeolite kill viruses?
No, but zeolites do trap pre-virus components, which prevent viruses from replicating. Viruses are produced in parts as on a production line, at the end of which the virus is fully constructed. Liquid zeolite absorbs viral parts into the pores of the micronized zeolite aggregates (not into the molecular cages described above). This explains why zeolites seem to block the development of many viral infections, including herpes virus 1, coxsackie virus B-5, echovirus 7, and adenovirus 5. Over forty anecdotal cases of herpes zoster have reportedly been healed, with sufferers becoming pain-free in one to three days after beginning to take liquid zeolite. Anecdotal testimony also indicates that it is effective in alleviating the flu, colds, hepatitis C, rheumatoid arthritis, and viral- or heavy-metal-induced multiple sclerosis. Zeolites anti-viral effect appears to be a preventative function that builds up over time, beginning after approximately four to six weeks of use, after heavy metals and other toxins have been mostly eliminated. However, there is some anecdotal evidence that liquid zeolite’s anti-viral effect is immediate.
What does it mean that liquid zeolite balances the body’s pH level?
The zeolite in solution is a negatively charged molecule with a cage-like structure that is able to trap positively charged hydronium ions. These ions lower the pH or make it more acidic. By eliminating them, liquid zeolite helps balance the pH to a more neutral, alkaline level, and take the burden off the body’s systems that work hard to keep pH stable.
Why is it important to maintain proper pH balance?
Because bad bacteria, fungi, yeast, and viruses—as well as diseases such as cancer – thrive in an acidic environment, pH levels of 7.3 and below can be conducive to disease. The optimum pH of your body should be slightly alkaline – between 7.35 and 7.45 – which is the level that liquid zeolite tends to establish.
Is it true that liquid zeolite balances blood sugar levels?
Yes, liquid zeolite appears to help balance blood sugar. Glucose molecules are positively charged, and adsorb or stick to the outside of the zeolites cage. (They are too big to fit inside zeolites molecular structure.) By eliminating excess glucose, zeolite helps to buffer blood glucose levels, in the same way that it helps buffer blood pH levels by removing excess hydronium ions. If you are an insulin-dependent diabetic, be aware that liquid zeolite may lower your need for insulin.
Zeolite contains aluminum ions. Could this potentially be harmful?
No. The aluminum is very strongly bonded into the cage-like structure of the zeolite, and so is completely unavailable biologically. It would take temperatures of 900°F (480°C) to break the aluminum free from the zeolite crystal. There is no chance that liquid zeolite can introduce any aluminum into the body. In fact, tests prove not only that all the aluminum in zeolite stays in the zeolite, but also that liquid zeolite causes additional aluminum to be excreted through the urine. That means that liquid zeolite efficiently removes aluminum from the body.
Does liquid zeolite affect liver function?
By reducing the body’s toxic load, liquid zeolite makes the liver’s job easier and therefore takes the strain off this vital detoxification organ. This leads to a healthier liver.
According to testimonials, some people feel happier when they take zeolites. How is that possible?
This appears to be a consequence of eliminating toxins and may also, according to preliminary research, be a function of increased serotonin production. One study suggests that zeolites may help relieve depression.
How does liquid zeolite benefit the immune system?
Most of the immunological benefits of zeolites are the result of detoxifying the body and buffering the pH level. As heavy metals and other toxins are eliminated and the pH is established at an optimal, slightly alkaline level, all the systems of the body are able to function more effectively. As one simple example of how this can occur, consider the availability of zinc, which has been well documented to be of benefit to the immune system. When lead accumulates in the body, it takes the place of zinc. By eliminating lead, liquid zeolite makes it possible for zinc stores to be replenished, directly enhancing immune system health.
Is liquid zeolite safe for transplant recipients?
Yes, liquid zeolite is perfectly safe for transplant recipients. The only precaution is to start with three to five drops three times a day, and gradually increase the dosage.
Transplant recipients must not take anything that stimulates the immune system. Liquid zeolite is not an immuno-stimulant. It is an immuno-modulatory agent – it appears to help the immune system work more efficiently. At present, liquid zeolite is being used safely by a number of transplant recipients.
Is liquid zeolite safe for people who have auto-immune disorders?
Yes. Like transplant recipients, people who suffer from auto-immune disorders – including multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, and lupus erythematosus – must not do anything to increase immune system function because that could make their disease worse. Since liquid zeolite is not an immuno-stimulant, it can be used safely by people with auto-immune disorders.
Can liquid zeolite be taken safely by people undergoing dialysis?
Yes. People on dialysis can use liquid zeolite safely as long as they keep their dosage low – in the range of three to five drops per dose – so as to avoid dehydration, as they have to limit the amount of water they drink. People who have renal insufficiency but are not on dialysis can take liquid zeolite safely, with no dosage adjustment.
How efficient is liquid zeolite absorption in the intestines?
About 60% of the liquid zeolite you ingest binds toxins in the bloodstream and at the cellular level. The remaining 40% stays in the intestinal tract, where it helps to protect the body from toxic absorption.
Does liquid zeolite remove depleted uranium from the body?
Depleted uranium carries a positive charge, liquid zeolite theoretically should remove it from the body. Zeolites ability to bind with radioactive minerals was proven during the Chernobyl disaster, when tons of zeolite were used to remove radioactive cesium and strontium-90 before they contaminated local water systems.
Who first formulated liquid zeolite?
Dr. Harvey Kaufman, a biochemist from a small pharmaceutical company in Ohio, devoted 37 years of research to purifying and activating zeolites to formulate liquid zeolite. In 2001, he was granted U.S. Patent #6,288,045.
There are many different zeolites. Which one is used in liquid zeolite?
Clinoptilolite is the zeolite used in NCD2 liquid zeolite.
How is liquid zeolite different from powdered zeolite?
Most powdered zeolites still contain all the toxins and heavy metals they absorb in nature.These take up much of the available surface area of the zeolite, limiting its efficacy. NCD Liquid zeolite is not a zeolite mineral that has been liquified, as doing so would destroy the structure of the mineral. NCD Liquid zeolite is Clinoptilolite has been micronised and Activated, and is in colloidal suspension, (suspended in water).
According to Rik Deitsch of Waiora’s Scientific Advisory Board, liquid activated zeolite is nine to twenty times more active than powdered zeolite. The powdered form works well in the digestive tract and has been used for GI distress, but powdered zeolite molecules are generally far too large to be absorbed into the bloodstream, which limits the zeolites efficacy. Liquid zeolites patented activation process empties out the zeolite cage, removing any toxins and “activating” the molecule to be maximally effective.
How is it possible to purify zeolite? Wouldn’t the toxins that are freed from it be attracted right back into the zeolite after the chemical bonds are broken?
The patented activation process used empties out the zeolite cage and removes all extraneous metals, eliminating any toxins that were found with the zeolite.
The zeolite molecule is, for all practical purposes, indestructible. Temperatures of up to 900°F (480°C) will not crack the molecule, and it can be frozen in solution and defrosted without any change in activity. It is also amphoteric, which means that it exists equally well in acidic or basic environments.
Liquid zeolite is heated at temperatures approaching boiling point in a slightly acidic environment. At this temperature, the molecule cannot be broken, but the heat in solution lengthens its bonds. In essence, we are “bending” the bars of the zeolites cage. The slightly acidic condition allows for easy cationic exchange and allows any absorbed material to “fall out” of the zeolite. This material precipitates out of solution and is removed from the product. The solution is then cooled slowly over 24 hours. What remains in solution is the micronized zeolite in molecular form and some lighter metals – calcium, sodium, magnesium, and phosphorus – which migrate back into the zeolite and help stabilise the molecule. When liquid zeolite is ingested, the lighter metals easily undergo cationic exchange with metals that have greater affinity with zeolite, particularly mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic.
Where does the Clinoptilolite zeolite used in NCD2 liquid zeolite come from?
The raw material used to make liquid zeolite comes from zeolite mines in Montana and Texas, which are renowned for their exceptionally high purity.
How is the zeolite mined? What environmental impact does the mining have?
Zeolites are formed in areas where there was volcanic activity several thousand years ago. The zeolite used in Waiora’s NCD liquid zeolite is hand-mined, causing no damage to the surrounding environment. The zeolite is micronized at the mine site (pulverized to a fine powder and filtered through a fine mesh screen), then placed in barrels and transported to the manufacturer.
Does liquid zeolite need refrigeration after the bottle is opened?
Will heat affect liquid zeolite – for example, if I leave the bottle in the sun inside my car?
Zeolite is a virtually indestructible mineral that is unaffected by temperatures under approximately 900°F (480°C).
Can liquid zeolite go through x-ray machines at airports?
Yes, it can go through an x-ray without any loss of potency or effectiveness.
What is the shelf life of a bottle of liquid zeolite?
All products that are ingested need to have shelf life specified on the label, and liquid zeolite is labeled as having a shelf life of two years. Given the nature of the zeolite molecule, liquid zeolite’s shelf life might very well be much longer.
Why does liquid zeolite sometimes look, taste or smell differently from bottle to bottle?
The zeolite that is used in liquid zeolite is a naturally mined product and because of this there can be slight variations in the excess mineral content, giving slight variances of colour (sometimes it can have a brownish tint) and taste from batch to batch. This slight variation between batches in no way affects the efficacy or safety of the product.
Why is liquid zeolite sold via multi-level marketing?
Multi-level marketing (MLM) is an efficient and cost-effective way to penetrate the health market consciously, without having to educate every shop assistant about how to sell the product. We believe that liquid zeolite is so extraordinary that the enthusiasm of MLM is the fastest way to get it to the people who need it most.
