Animal Blogs, Toxins and Zeolites

We all love to surf the web. Animal and pet sites that have message boards are always intriguing to me as I read post after post of people dealing with numerous health issues facing their animals. Ulcers, diabetes, renal failure, liver disease, skin disorders, ear infections, tumors, allergies, arthritis….and the posts go on and on. Herbs, supplements and medications are always suggested by other ‘posters’, and the blogging continues. What people don’t realize is that most of the conditions they are discussing can all be caused by one thing,: Toxicity. When we think of toxicity in animals, we usually think about our pet eating chocolate or drinking anti-freeze, but what we don’t immediately think of is all the others toxins they are exposed to each and every day that create a ‘body burden‘ or build up of these toxins. . Most health professionals, including the CDC and AMA, agree that up to 95% of all disease affecting mankind is due to toxins in the body, the same is true of your animals. Our pets absorb a variety of toxic substances through the food they eat, the water they drink, the air they breath and the chemicals, medications and supplements that we use on them and expose them to everyday.

We are all inundated each and everyday in the news about the toxins in our environment and the effects that they play on our health and the health of our animals. Just buying groceries, household cleaners and pet food has become a most daunting task in the past few years. Even though you can’t prevent you and your animals taking in these toxins, there is something you can do to minimize their effect rth and fire created a most amazing mineral in nature. When lava flows into salt and fresh water lakes it creates a mineral called zeolite. These positively charged minerals (specifically clinoptilolite chabizite and heulandite zeolites) have a unique cage-like structure that naturally draws into it positively charged particles like heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, aluminum as well as , chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, carcinogens, allergens and some pre-viral components. A biochemist recently discovered a way to clean out the ‘cages’ of naturally mined zeolites and ‘activate’ them so that when they are ingested as a liquid by humans and/or animals their absorptive capacity of heavy metals, chemicals, carcinogens, etc., is in the range of 90 square feet per gram. What all this means is that there is now an all natural product, a Zeolite, that can be ingested by humans and animals alike that will remove daily ingested toxins from the body (60% in the bloodstream and 40% in the GI tract) thus putting the body in a natural optimum state of health. Another great benefit of taking the liquid activated zeolite is that it has the ability to balance the body’ pH to a healthy alkaline state. Having a balanced pH has many positive long-term benefits, not the least of which is creating an unfriendly, antagonistic environment for disease, because most disease cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. They need an acidic environment. Once the body is free of the vast toxic load that's causing chronic illness, the immune system can deal with things the way it’s designed to do, often bringing about the most remarkable turn-around in people's and animal’s health.  

So, in getting ready to sign in on a message board about your pet’s health, maybe you should ask yourself a few questions first: Do I avoid walking my dog on golf courses or grassy areas where there may be pesticides or fertilizers? Do I use only organic cleaners on the floors of my home? Do I only fill my pet’s water dish with distilled water? Do I only feed organic pet food? Do I use newspapers on the floor at home or organic litter? Do I buy all natural pet toys or plastic ones? Does my pet take medications, wormers or do I use chemicals on or around them? Do you smoke around your pet? You understand the implications of your answers, now it’s time to remove the toxins from your pet’s body with zeolites so that he can be a healthy animal that can heal himself for many years to come.

Zeolites - Nature’s Answer to a
Healthy Horse & Wallet

 

In forty two years of equestrian involvement as a trainer, competitor, breeder and rehab specialist, I find myself amazed each and every day at the number of supplements and products on the market to remedy a wide array of equine maladies. When I first became involved with horses, we had an annual visit from our veterinarian which included one vaccination, teeth floating and tube worming. Any other visit was on an emergency basis. Now days, we are supposed to worm every two months or even daily, we vaccinate for over 10 potential diseases and 3 of these vaccines are recommended as boosters every 3 months and the average veterinarian visits each horses 6 times a year.. I recently received an equine catalog and was amazed at my choices: Joint Supplements (84) Anti-Inflammatory Supplements (22), Hoof Supplements (28), Calming Supplements (25), Vitamin and Mineral Supplements (33), Antioxidants (18), Weight Supplements (16) and Ulcer and Digestive Supplements (28), and all that was in just one catalog! What is happening in the horse world to cause the need for so much medication and supplementation of our animals?

I believe that the answer lies in one word: TOXICITY. Our horses are being exposed to a wide range of toxics substances each and every day through the air they breath, the water they drink and the food they eat. Over time these toxic substances can accumulate in the body and result in chronic illness. Hay can contain numerous toxins from pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers, grains can contain mycotoxins, molds and spores ….water can contain many chemicals and heavy metals which can adversely affect the body and air quality can greatly impact the health, training and conditioning of your equine athlete. In addition, our horses are bombarded with chemicals and toxins from fly sprays, conditioners, supplements, medications, vaccinations and wormers used to supposedly keep them healthy. Years ago, our horses had the ability to rid their body’s of these toxins, but todays massive increase in toxic related exposure creates a ‘body burden’ where the body can no longer handle the toxic load and the result can create illness.

How Zeolites can Improve Your Horse’s
Health & Your Wallet

A very unique mineral is now taking center stage as the premier detox for people and animals. This mineral is called a zeolite, specifically  clinoptilolite, chabizite and heulandite zeolites. Zeolite minerals are formed when lava hits salt and fresh water lakes. Zeolites are one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature and has a very unique honey-comb structure. In nature, this mineral draws to it positively charged particles such as heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and various carcinogens. A biochemist recently developed a method of cleaning out the pores of the mined zeolites thus making them clean or activated. This  zeolite when taken internally by humans and animals and has proven itself to remove heavy metals, toxins, and chemicals while balancing the body’s pH to a normal alkaline level, thus promoting overall health. Zeolites have been used in European countries and Asia for over 500 years to improve health of people and animals. Zeolite was used to treat the land at Chernobyl and was also fed to cows and to people to remove radioactive material from their bodies with great success.

In the past year, we have seen tremendous results to horses fed zeolites on a daily basis. Some of these results include: Grand Prix horse on daily Neigh-Lox due to ulcers and a chronic history of colic…after only one month the horse was removed from ulcer medication and has had no bouts of colic for a year.

Topically applied  zeolite on sarcoid 3”x4” completely fell off after only 1month. Mare with aggressive behavior made a dramatic change in personality after 4 weeks on zeolite, preliminary testing had shown high levels of mercury in her body. Gelding presented with very large mass on chest, diagnosed with Dryland Distemper, after only 5 days on Zeolites mass reduced by 95% and horse was back to work. Studies in humans have shown increased athletic performance with the addition of zeolites to their training regime, the same has been shown in horses who also exhibit more stamina, strength and endurance.

A 17 year old jumper became increasingly unsound due to debilitating arthritis, zeolites greatly improved situation and horse is working and showing again with no other supplementation or anti-inflammatory medications. Gelding with history of profuse allergies to flies found great relief from zeolites and no longer has scabs and discomfort all summer long. The stories go on and on…the reality is that by detoxifying our horses thoroughly with liquid activated zeolites (60% in the bloodstream and 40% in the GI tract) and balancing their body’s pH, we can allow our horse’s to be healthy naturally so that their bodies can heal themselves as mother nature intended and we can stop supplementing their symptoms.

It is a fact that most chronic illnesses in our animals is due to toxicity. We spend thousands of dollars each year on medications, supplements and treatments to address these health issues when in fact we are merely treating the symptoms and rarely the cause. If the cause of so many of these illnesses is related to toxicity in the food, water and environment, wouldn’t it make sense to remove the toxins from the body naturally and generate a healthy animal that can heal itself ?

Zeolites - The Answer to Saving Arizona Lakes
: A Cooperative Attempt by Jim Flowers and Darcy Fisher

In May there was a news story about Pena Blanca Lake near Rio Rico and the problem that they are having with mercury contamination in the lake sediment and the fish. The report said that the Forest Service was getting ready to address this problem by draining the lake, removing and destroying the fish and taking about 10’ of sediment out of the lake bottom. They would then allow mother nature to refill the lake and then restock it with fish. Several questions immediately came to mind: What were they going to do with all that water and where were they going to ‘dump’ the mercury laden sediment? The mercury that has accumulated in the lake and fish probably got there from water run off to start with, so by letting the lake refill itself from run off wouldn’t it re-contaminate itself upon self filling? To remove 10’ of sediment out of the bottom of the lake, wouldn’t you be causing damage to the fragile lake ecosystem?

A recent proposal was submitted to the USFS Coronado Nogales District on an alternative method of cleaning up the mercury contamination in fish and sediment of Pena Blanca Lake. This alternative remediation formulated by Jim Flowers, Biochemist and Owner of NCD Wellnesceuticals, uses an all natural mineral, activated or clean zeolite (specifically clinoptilolite, chabizite and heulandite) powder disbursed into the water to remove mercury as well as other heavy metals, chemicals and toxins naturally and safely that may be present in the lake. Zeolite lake remediation has proven successful in many parts of the world and we hope that Pena Blanca Lake zeolite remediation will set the stage so that we can also clean up Arivaca Lake, Patagonia Lake, Parker Canyon Lake and some 40 other contaminated lakes across Arizona. In New Zealand, the heavily contaminated Rotorua Lakes were remediated with zeolites with tremendous success.

WHAT ARE ZEOLITES?

Zeolites are a naturally occurring minerals found in nature that are formed when lava contacts fresh or salt water lakes . There are several types of zeolites, but the ones that we use are called clinoptilolite or cage-like zeolites. This unique mineral created from the 4 elements: air, water, earth and fire has very unique properties that have been proven to detoxify and balance the pH of human, animal and water bodies. Zeolites are negatively charged minerals, actually one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, and when they come into contact with positively charged particles such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, pesticides and chemicals they actually pull them into their ‘cage-like’ structure . In nature, zeolites draw these positively charges particles to it, so that when you mine zeolite minerals they are already quite full of heavy metals, etc., Our zeolites are put through an activation process that actually cleans out the cages of the zeolites and creates an absorption rate of approximately 90 square feet per gram of zeolite. In humans and animals the zeolites that are full of heavy metals and toxins are released naturally through urine output. In lakes, the zeolite will settle at the bottom of the body of water where it will continue to collect additional contaminants and will never re-release them into the ecosystem. One of the most positive aspects of using the activated zeolites in lakes is that the contaminated water, fish and sediment do not have to be removed from the lake, they all will be remediated by the zeolites and therefore will not destroy the fragile ecosystem of lakes.

500,000 tons of zeolite were used successfully in the clean-up after the nuclear power plant disaster at Chernobyl which involved cohesive efforts by virtually every zeolite production facility in the entire former U.S.S.R. Zeolites were fed to cattle in an effort to keep radioactive ions out of the milk, and were baked into bread and cookies for children in an effort to minimize the radioactive contamination in humans. Zeolites were also used at ‘Three Mile Island’ a decade or so before Chernobyl. Contaminated land, such as Brown Field near Three Mile Island was rendered fit for building and agriculture after treating the soil with sufficient quantities of zeolites.

There is a lot of concern and discussion currently going on in southern Arizona regarding mining and it’s affect on the quality of groundwater. Zeolites can be applied in powdered form directly to open pit mine lakes to pull out the heavy metals, chemicals and toxins in the water and prevent them from entering the local groundwater and aquifers.

BENEFITS OF USING ZEOLITES

People and animals across the world are benefiting from incorporating zeolites into their lives. It is clearly evident that we live in a toxic world and it has been reported that the average American takes in over 150 chemicals, toxins, carcinogens and/or heavy metals each and everyday. After time, this intake of toxins builds up in the body and creates what is called a ’body burden’ which can and usually does result in chronic disease. By adding  Zeolites to you and your pets daily regime you can remove these toxins from the body naturally and also balance the body’s pH to a normal alkaline state. Disease thrives in an acidic body but does not do well in an alkaline body. Most people who have integrated activated zeolites into their lives have noticed increased energy and stamina as well as the disappearance of many chronic health problems.

Zeolites seem to address many issues that are of great concern to Americans across the country. With just one naturally occurring mineral we can remove toxins and carcinogens from our body, clean up our water and our land. Hopefully, the USFS Nogales District will recognize the tremendous benefits of treating Pena Blanca Lake and remediation by zeolites of water, sediment and fish and this will set the precedence for cleaning up lakes across Arizona and around the country.
