Detoxification and Re-Mineralization

• By Dr. Mark Sircus

We desperately need to create an open discussion in medicine about all the possibilities that we have to treat human beings with disease. Nothing tops the list like the need to protect ourselves from all the poisons in the environment and unfortunately today this goes especially for people who live in cities. Its like a leaking boat, the water comes (toxins with every breath) in and we constantly have to bail the water out. If we don't do that fast enough we sink.

Doctors don't want to hear it but pharmaceutical medicines, almost every single one of them, make the leak worse. They increase toxicity because they are mitochondrial poisons. There are certain basic substances that help with the bailing and others that help plug the leaks but short of leaving the planet there is no way to completely wall off the toxins in the air, water and food.

I personally start most days with a glass of edible clay. Clay acts like a sponge pulling toxins instead of water and gets them out of the body. In a poisoned world this is important. Zeolites are another basic substance that instead of acting like clay sponges act like steel cages that trap chemicals and heavy metals in their cage like crystalline structures; even in the brain if you have the right kind of nano zeolite.

More than 500,000 tons of zeolite was dumped via helicopter at Chernobyl to absorb radioactive chemicals and other harmful toxins that were released during the disaster. In addition, cattle were fed zeolite to help keep radioactive ions out of milk, and zeolite was baked into cookies/biscuits (for children) and encapsulated into pills (for adults) to help minimize the contamination in humans. Decontamination of radioactive waste-waters using zeolitic ion-exchangers have been used for uptake radioactive caesium ( 137 Cs), strontium ( 90 Sr) and other radionuclides, holding them in their three-dimensional crystal framework.

Zeolite makes an excellent overall absorbent; the advantage to Zeolite over other absorbents is its ability to absorb/adsorb and bind with the elements that make up hydrocarbons and radioactive isotopes.

The Need To Plug The Leaks With Minerals

And then we come to the need to plug the leaks, to fill up the holes that chemical toxins, radioactive elements and heavy metals like to hide in. We do that with minerals, with iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, boron and even with bicarbonates that make detoxification and chelation much easier because of their alkaline effects.
