I have experience with Bentonite and charcoal, but not zeolite. Does anyone have anything remarkable to say about zeolite for toxin removal? It's part of the after-Infusio care they recommend. I have charcoal on hand and have been taking it. Wondering if zeolite is better or does something more?

Thanks!

Actually, each binder will have better binding ability for different toxins. If they are saying you need zeolight, then I'd ask what I'm trying to use it for (binding to what toxin?), and then if they are correct in their suggestions (I assume they would be, on the other hand I don't like to leave those things open), take what they are suggesting.

From a book I was reading, by Dr. Neil Nathan:
Ochratoxins appear to be bound best by cholestyramine, welchol and activated charcoal.

Aflatoxins are best bound by activated charcoal and bentonite clay.

Tricothecenes are best bound by activated charcoal and possibly others.

Chlorella may be useful, but the medical literature is limited.

There is no clear data on gliotoxins yet, but bentonite clay and Saccharomyces bouldardii may be helpful.

This is one Dr's opinions, but it may be helpful.

10LymeB,

Several years ago, before I had my new Lyme diagnosis but experiencing Lyme symptoms, I used zeolite for about a month and noticed a slight increase in "overall wellness" feeling. It also seemed to temporarily help with my allergies and congestion. Not sure if this helps.

I will say that my Lyme Dr. advised me not to take anything like zeolite and definitely not activated charcoal while treating Lyme or any of the confections. They advised that although it can help remove toxins, it will also severely reduce the effectiveness of the antibiotics, so I would say be sure to only use these after you have already finished an antibiotic or herbal protocol.

Actually, all binders need to be kept a safe distance (time wise) from other things, including food. So, if someone takes a binder immediately after taking their abx/herbs - the binder will bind to it instead of the toxins.

When taken on an empty stomach though, the binder binds to toxins, just as it should. The general time expected between taking each binder is a little different, but mostly it's 2- 3 hours before and after taking the binder, nothing but water.

Those doctors that say that binders should not be used until after the abx/herbs are finished really don't understand their role - as the toxins are either in overload state by then, or the binders simply are not needed by then.

Thanks Traveler!

Intuition, Infusio actually doesn't want us taking any herbals or antibiotics at all after the stem cell procedure - which is where I currently am. I guess I'll try the zeolite and see how I feel.

Thanks!
