I cannot survive without my daily detox drink. This drink is not like any other detox drink – it removes toxic build up and compacted faeces from the Gastrointestinal Tract (GIT), and it removes it in a way that I describe as ‘mechanically’…
It takes about 3 mins to make…..
1 tbsp: Psyllium Husk POWDER (make sure it is not just the husk but husk powder)
1 teaspoon: Activated Charcoal Powder (Bamboo is best)
1 tbsp: Zeolite (or Bentonite, depending on quality of clay)
You will need an electric blender.
Blend the above with about 500 – 600ml of water, wait for at least 10 mins then quickly blend again to prevent any lumps.
Drink slowly, between meals and away from any medications or supplements.
Currently I am using Zeolite instead of Bentonite, but the both clays have very similar properties. I found that the Bentonite tends to spoil quicker than Zeolite, meaning it seems to ferment and produce an unpleasant smell, particularly in warm climates. The Zeolite I find to be of a smoother finer consistency whilst the quality of Bentonite, being often quite gritty, seems to have gone downhill in the past few years. The following information is taken from Curezone, but I add what I feel is relevant to the information below the citation,
Psyllium and Bentonite is one of the simplest and most effective ways to cleanse the digestive system. Liquid Bentonite should be used…or powdered Bentonite should be hydrated to a semi-pourable yogurt consistency prior to using it. Mix 1 Tablespoon of liquid bentonite and 1 teaspoon of powdered psyllium (or 1 Tablespoon if using whole husk psyllium) with 8-10oz of water or diluted juice, shake and drink immediately.https://www.curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=64478
I do not feel it is necessary to use liquid Bentonite (or liquid Zeolite), it is an expensive and unnecessary option. Powdered un-hydrated clays are fine. Neither does it need to be hydrated prior to adding to the psyllium.
I also would not bother with juice, the shake has no taste and as such does not need to be dressed up with sugary drinks which will feed Gastrointestinal bacteria’s.
I also add approx half a teaspoon of activated Charcoal to the ingredients, the Charcoal I have linked is a Bamboo Charcoal and as such I feel its a better quality. Charcoal has slightly different properties and apparently works well on the removal of mycotoxins
The Science Behind Clays for Detoxing.
Structure and Components
The most widespread and studied zeolite clay is clinoptilolite (ZC). ZC has detoxifying, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. As a result, it is been used in many industrial applications ranging from environmental remediation to oral applications/supplementation in vivo in humans as food supplements or medical devices.
‘In a clash of scalding lava and cold seawater, zeolite forms a unique cage-like structure and negative surface charge. Aluminum and silicon make the basis of this structure, but it often includes other elements such as oxygen, tin, zinc, and titanium.
Tiny cages enable zeolite to act as a “molecular sieve,” filtering molecules based on their particle size. Negative surface charge loosely binds minerals – such as sodium, potassium, and calcium – and replaces them with large ions and heavy metals .
In other words, zeolite can pick up plenty of “bad stuff” and replace it with “good stuff.”
Cell studies have confirmed the ability of zeolite to bind and remove heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and mercury.’
Psyllium is a natural, water-soluble fibre that has been traditionally used in China and India as herbal medicine to treat bladder problems, high blood pressure and for treatment of skin irritations. It has also been used since ancient times as a natural laxative – it is classed as mucilage and as such when wet it becomes very sticky like glue. Mix this with the magnetic properties of clays such as Bentonite or Zeolite and you have a very powerful tool to remove years of built up stool, parasites and toxins. Expect bowel movements to be more regular, and you may even experience some discomfort at first if you are particularly blocked up, the discomfort is usually relieved when you have the bowel movement and can often be due to the release of trapped wind during this time. To avoid this it is a good idea to ensure that you are eating a health diet including plenty of vegetables and that your bowels are moving at least once a day before using this drink. Obviously consult a practitioner prior to using Psyllium and clays if you have pain or discomfort in your bowels or if you have an existing gastrointestinal problem.
The Safety of Zeolite.
The following citation is from a study titled ‘Critical Review on Zeolite Clinoptilolite Safety and Medical Applications in vivo‘, and in its conclusion it reveals that Zeolite is a safe product to use in vivo (carried out on a living organism),
In agreement with the scientific evidence presented in the literature so far, it can be generally stated that clinoptilolite-based materials, including the so-called activated materials, may be regarded as safe for in vivo consumption. A variety of highly positive effects on animal and human health were documented thus far for clinoptilolite-based materials. Due to clinoptilolite’s remarkable ion-exchange and adsorption properties and consequent detoxifying effects, it has proven useful in the elimination of a variety of contaminants from the body or in amelioration of the intestinal status. An indirect systemic detoxification effect attributed to clinoptilolite-based material supplementation in the diet of both animals and humans was documented in other organs as well, e.g., liver. However, the observed positive systemic mechanisms are still not completely understood. We hypothesize that they may be at least partially attributed to the restoration of the human homeostasis due to local detoxification properties within the intestine, the release of dissolved silica forms from the clinoptilolite tuff that enter from the intestine into the blood, as well as to clinoptilolite’s immunomodulatory effects. The observed local immunomodulatory effects of clinoptilolite involve the induction of immune responses through Peyer’s patches and/or possible positive effects on microbial intestinal populations through still unknown mechanisms. These local effects may have a systemic ‘echo’ on the whole immune status as well, as observed in some studies. Finally, clinoptilolite’s antioxidant effects and restoration of antioxidant defence mechanisms may also be linked to the positive general systemic impact.
