QUESTION: A safe, natural product that removes lead and other heavy metals from the body without side effects? 23/02/09   Northern Territory, Australia

I have a safe, natural product that removes lead and other heavy metals from the body without side effects. I have include some information on it below. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like consider distribution to lead afflicted areas.


[ UPDATE AS AT 26/9/2020 by Elizabeth O’Brien, The LEAD Group Inc charity: Our charity DOES NOT SELL ZEOLITE AND NEVER DID SELL IT! The person in the Northern Territory who posed this “Question” on 23/2/2009, is no longer contactable and it seems that “Australian Zeolite” (either the book by Dr Gabriel Cousens or the product, is no longer available online). Please note the statement I made below, in 2009: that The LEAD Group only recommends complementary medicine products that are registered with the TGA in Australia. Check the website at to see whether medications or medicines have been approved by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration).

Also, it is vital to find a health practitioner you trust, to manage your heavy metal poisoning detox, but before making an appointment with a health practitioner who might treat you for heavy metal poisoning, ensure they are registered. Individuals can check to see if a practitioner is registered in Australia through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) website at

The only information I could find online as at 26/9/2020 that is similar to the information below, was at - VITALITY PLUS AUSTRALIA Blogposts - Posted on 27/04/2011 by Brett Hayes re: Dr. Gabriel Cousens and Activated Liquid Zeolite. The blogpost lists a related product: NCD2 Natural Cellular Defense by Waiora (made in the USA) – but it was out-of-stock as at 26/9/2020. ]

DOSAGE: When you start the drops take 5 to 10 drops once daily at night. For Children and small animals give 1 to 2 drops in water. One bottle at the adult dose lasts from 2 to 4 months. Maintenance dose after your initial detox is 2 drops daily.

This Australian Zeolite is produced and distributed from within Australia and is 8 times as concentrated as other similar, commercially produced zeolite products, as well as being very cost effective. Visit for more information on people's experiences in Australia of returning to health from cancer with zeolite.

I have attached a paper by Dr Gabriel Cousens M.D. who is the author of many books, including Conscious Eating, and is the founder of the Tree of Life, and runs a world-renowned health clinic located in Patagonia, Arizona, United States.

 The following is a link to Doctors' testimonials which I thought may be interesting.

Go to the following site and look up many conditions that people have found zeolite to help

Below are some articles that further explain how it works:

Liquid Zeolite Structure.

The structure of liquid zeolite is a 4 and 5 caged ring structure and a chain made up of Oxygen, Silica, Magnesium and Aluminium.

The Nano-Zolites are the active components of the liquid zeolite and will stay active for 33 hours in the body.

Liquid zeolite is not a drug but can be used as a preventative against serious illness. This is important in today's society as we are constantly being exposed to toxins in our personal care products, heavy metals in our atmosphere and from dental fillings, preservatives, additives and hormones in our food and water and high levels of stress, with low levels of exercise. Liquid zeolite can help to remove some of these toxins, heavy metals and free radicals.

Amalgam filings can cause a build up of Mercury in the body causing Mercury toxicity. Liquid zeolite can help to remove the Mercury that is circulating in the body but will not draw any Mercury out from the fillings.

  • Liquid zeolite should NOT be taken with radiotherapy.
  • Liquid zeolite can also remove the natural toxins such as myotoxins.
  • Liquid zeolite can remove toxins, heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides and insecticides.
  • Toxins with heavy metals will chelate with the oxygen atoms in the Nano-Zolite so heavy metals are removed.
  • Toxins with alcoholic side groups (OH) can form Hydrogen bonds with the Nano-Zolite chain and be removed.
  • Toxins containing Nitrogen such as nitrates and nitrites can chelate with the metallic atoms in the chain of the Nano-Zolite so are removed from the body.
  • Liquid zeolite can also support and activate the immune system by increasing the amount of Nuclear Factor Protein (NFP) which is present in every cell in the body. Increasing NFP boosts the immune system by causing the thymus and spleen to make more T-Cells and macrophages.

HAIR ANALYSIS RESULTS- Ela Gold Hello everybody,

Just to let you all know the results of my Hair Tissue Mineral analysis are back and with it the proof that zeolite works without doubt: The only supplements taken after starting on zeolite was once a week Vitamin C and Germanium-132.

The essential elements _in ppm            before     and    6 weeks after

Calcium (Ca)                                         383.00              472.47

Magnesium (Mg)                                   23.9                 46.18

Phosphorus  (P)                                      48.00                177.03

Zinc  (Zn)                                               61.00                183.74

Selenium (Se)                                         0.61                  0.90

As you can see, it does not take out the good stuff. It makes sense that when the body has less toxins it is better able to absorb the good things.

The toxic elements in ppm             before  and   6 weeks after

Aluminium                                     24.00            4.00

Antimony                                        0.57              n.d. (not detectable)

Arsenic                                            0.89              0.02

Cadmium                                        0.003            n.d.

Lead                                                0.84             0.15

Mercury                                          0.58              n.d.

Nickel                                             0.23              0.01

Silver                                              0.95              n.d.

Tungsten                                         0.08              n.d.

Uranium                                         0.15              n.d

No surprise my energy levels are amazing! So if you have any people that doubt that Zeolite works or who are concerned that they might not feel anything, just get them to make a test before they start on it and then after.

 ZEOLITE - by Gabriel Cousens M.D., M.D. (H)

_This summary details a major breakthrough in detoxifying the human body of the carcinogens, heavy metals, viruses, bacteria, fungi, and overall acid conditions that promote and cause disease.

*          *          *

Some 70,000 chemicals are being dumped into our environment, 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health. We live in a virtual sea of pollutants, and carry many of these toxins within us. They can be found even in unborn children. A 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group identified 287 industrial chemicals in babies' umbilical-cord blood, including 180 known to cause cancer and 217 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system.

 In my research to develop a detoxification system for prospective mothers, I recently learned about a naturally occurring mineral called zeolite, which has a unique, negatively charged, crystalline structure. Zeolite is formed from the fusion of lava and ocean water. It has been used for more than 800 years in Asia as a remedy for overall health and well-being, and for 30 years in the U.S. in animal feed. It has also undergone 13 years of pharmaceutical research in the U.S. with humans. Zeolite is included on the Food and Drug Administration's GRAS list (Generally Recognised As Safe) and thus is considered to be "completely safe.

Zeolite is available commercially in a purified, activated form. The results of research on zeolite are very impressive.

  1.  Zeolite appears to prevent and may become an important treatment for cancer. In one study, 78 percent of the 65 participants with terminal cancer (many types) are now in complete remission for 12 months (LifeLink Pharmaceuticals, 2005, currently not published).
  2. It has a chelation-like effect in removing heavy metals (particularly lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic), pesticides, herbicides, PCBs, and other toxins from the body. These toxins are strongly correlated with the occurrence of a wide range of diseases, including cancers and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's, other forms of dementia, and autism.
  3.  Zeolite also improves liver function, indirectly improving elimination of pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic estrogens.
  4. Zeolite appears to block viral replication, and may prove to be a potent anti-viral and general remedy for all viruses. To date, 40 anecdotal cases of herpes zoster have reportedly been healed. Preliminary anecdotal case studies suggest that it may help alleviate rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and hepatitis C as well as the common cold and flu.
  5. Zeolite's binding power was proven during the Chernobyl disaster, when tons of it were used to remove radioactive cesium and strontium-90 before they contaminated local water systems. Acting primarily as a chelator, zeolite trapped the radioactive minerals within its crystalline caged structure.
  6. Zeolite creates a natural buffer in the system by establishing an optimal acid/alkaline balance (between pH 7.35 and 7.45), which in turn promotes healthy brain function and a strong immune system.
  7. It is an effective detoxifier for prospective mothers and fathers. Anecdotal evidence and centuries of use in Asia suggest that zeolite is safe to use even during pregnancy and breastfeeding, although its safe use in pregnancy has not been proven in double-blind studies, and no claims for safe use in pregnancy can be made.
  8. According to testimonials, zeolite promotes a sense of well-being, clarity, and happiness. It appears to do this as a consequence of eliminating toxins and also, according to preliminary research, by increasing serotonin production. One study suggests that zeolite also helps relieve depression.
  9. Anecdotal reports suggest that zeolite increases energy, immune function, and general health.
  10. Zeolite neutralizes the formation of nitrosamines in the stomach. Found in processed meats, nitrosamines are one cause of stomach cancer. Another positive effect on the stomach, according to many anecdotal reports, is relief of acid reflux.
  11. Testimonials suggest that zeolite captures antigens of the immune system which cause allergies, migraines, and asthma, decreasing the rate and severity of these symptoms.
  12. Zeolite directly absorbs free radicals and thus decreases free radical activity and subsequent damage to cells.

 A pilot study at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center with 60 people, based on my non-toxic baby protocol for preparing parents to bring forth non-toxic babies, consisted of a one-week green juice fast and detox support program with zeolite.  The following very significant results were found.  22 people were tested for depleted uranium (DU), a very serious worldwide radioactive contamination resulting from the use of DU armaments, especially used in Iraq.  20 of the 22 people tested initially had DU in at least the liver, the breast, or the brain, and 17 of the 22 people had started with it in all three organs, the liver, the breast, and the brain.  In one week on this protocol, all the people became DU-free except for one person, who still had DU in the liver.  Also, thirty-two people were tested for Teflon and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), the carcinogenic element of Teflon.  Teflon was found in the livers of 27 people, the breasts of 25, and the brains of 28 people.  All!

 but two became teflon-free after one week.  Only one person had Teflon remaining in the breast, and one had Teflon remaining in the brain.  In the same group of 32, initially PFOA was found in the liver of 28, the breast of 29, and the brain of 28 people.  After one week, all had become PFOA-free except for one having PFOA remaining in the breast and brain.  In testing people for a whole set of toxins consisting of 14 to 26 of the common heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides, the subjects initially had on average 90 to 95% of the toxins in their liver, breast, and brain, whether they were live-food eaters or not.  The overall percentage of removal of these toxins from these organs was 87%, leaving only 13% of the toxins in their systems overall.  This included 90% removal from the liver, 87% removal from the breast, and 86% removal from the brain.  In the 60 people tested for the heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicide toxins, initially 845 toxins were found in the subjects' livers, 876 toxins in the breasts, 8 toxins in the brain!

 After the one-week protocol, just 88 toxins were left in the liver, 115 toxins left in the breast, and 124 toxins left in the brain:

Results of week-long zeolite & juice fasting non-toxic baby protocol


  • Toxins found before 845 876 875 2596
  • Toxins found After 88 115 124 327
  • Percentage Removed 90% 87% 86% 87%

The four subjects who continued the green juice fasting with Zeolite for two weeks went down to 0 toxins, a 100% removal rate. These results suggest a powerful synergy of zeolite plus a detoxifying green juice fast. In observing thousands of fasters since 1988, fasting alone-although wonderful for enhancing the vital force-does not seem to significantly get rid of pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals after 1 week by itself. I am proposing a theoretical model for explaining the testimonials of the powerful, across-the-board healing effects of zeolite from such health problems as ADD/Hyperactivity, Addiction, Agent Orange Exposure, ,Arthritis, Autism, Cancer, Cysts and Tumours, Depression, Diabetes,  Fibromyalgia, Flu, Colds, and Respiratory Problems, Gastro-Intestinal Problems, Heavy Metal Poisoning, Hepatitis C, High Blood Pressure, Kidney Stones, Lack of Mental Clarity, Pain, PMS/Menstrual Pain, Silicone Breast Implant Toxicity, Skin Conditions, Toothache/Gum Disease, Varicose and Spider Veins, Viral and Other Infections, Yeast Infections. The model is a foundational healing concept. The basic mechanism we can draw from the literature and my present pilot study is that, by removing heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and DU, as well as through its effect of increasing immune function, alkalizing the blood, blocking viral replication, and neutralizing free radicals, zeolite removes the blocks which compromise the vital life force. When the vital life force is freed up and activated, the body's natural ability does the healing and relieving of these chronic diseases itself. With zeolite, we have returned to the basic natural healing theory for all chronic diseases.

 Zeolite is a tasteless, and odourless liquid that, taken daily as oral drops, supports us in living healthy, happy, and active lives in an increasingly toxic world.

 Zeolite appears to remove toxins from the body in a hierarchical order. It first acts strongly to  remove lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic. This first phase may take one to four weeks or longer. Zeolite then removes second-priority toxins, including pesticides, herbicides and plastics. Zeolite appears to increase the rate of glucuronization in the liver, activating phase two of the glucuronidase detox function. This in turn removes pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic estrogens from the body, releasing them through the urine. Interestingly, it also appears to neutralize the aflatoxin (mould) poison.

 A third function of zeolite is to trap pre-virus components, preventing the replication of viruses and their ability to make us sick. In this way, zeolite may play an important role as a broad-spectrum anti-viral. Viruses are produced in parts as on a production line, at the end of which the virus is fully constructed. Zeolite absorbs viral parts into the pores of the mirconized zeolite aggregates (not into the chelating-like cages described above). This explains why zeolite seems to block the development of many viral infections, including herpes virus 1, Coxsackie virus B-5, ecco-virus 7, and adenovirus 5. Forty anecdotal cases of herpes zoster have reportedly been cured, with sufferers becoming pain-free in one to three days after beginning to take zeolite. Anecdotal testimony also reports that it is effective in alleviating or curing the flu, colds, hepatitis C, viral or heavy-metal induced multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Zeolite's effect as an anti-viral appears to be a preventative function that builds up over time, beginning after approximately four to six weeks of use, when heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides have been mostly eliminated. There is anecdotal evidence, however, that in some cases its anti-viral effect seems to be immediate.

 Zeolite also is a unique antioxidant. A traditional antioxidant works by absorbing excess free radicals into its system because it has an unpaired electron. In contrast, zeolite traps free radicals within its complex structure, inactivating and eliminating them. In this way, it acts as a complement to traditional antioxidants.

 In addition, zeolite buffers the system towards slight alkalinity by establishing pH levels of 7.35 to 7.45, the optimum pH for the human body. The body's pH level influences both immunity and brain function. An acid blood pH (7.34 or lower) creates a precondition for cancer. In an acid environment, brain cell function can also be impaired, causing depression, anxiety, stupor, paranoia, delusions, hallucinations, or even psychosis.

 Zeolite also appears to balance the immune system, either up- or down-regulating it as needed. Although the precise mechanism for this is not entirely understood, this function is clearly very important in a world in which most people's immune systems are seriously compromised.

 Because zeolite so powerfully removes various types of toxins from the body, it naturally increases energy and wellbeing. Users report improvements in mental clarity and a sense of peace, wellness, and happiness. These are what we term positive secondary effects. For example, clearing out heavy metals allows the body's magnesium stores to work efficiently with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the biological source of energy in the body. When this interaction is occurring optimally, people have more energy and experience greater well-being. One study has demonstrated that zeolite also appears to increase levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin which is known to help alleviate some forms of depression.

 Zeolite shows promise as an effective detoxifier for women who plan to become pregnant. As outlined previously, at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center it was added to the protocol for the 10-day detoxification program for prospective mothers.

 There are no reports of side effects, except one: because of its natural action to absorb water, zeolite can cause dehydration. It is therefore very important to drink sufficient water (at least eight glasses a day) both before and while taking zeolite to ensure adequate hydration.

 There is only one contraindication: Zeolite is contraindicated for anyone taking a medication containing heavy metals, such as lithium, or containing platinum, which is found in some cancer medications. Before taking Zeolite, check with your doctor to determine if your medication contains heavy metals or platinum.

 Zeolite is simple, elegant, extraordinary, and vital for healthy living in today's toxic world. I believe this most unique, natural substance is an alchemical gift from God to help us face our present-day health challenges due to ecological ignorance or, as they are called in Ayurveda, prajna prathara or crimes against nature.

Recommended Dosage & Uses for Zeolite

NOTE: DRINK PLENTY OF WATER when using this suppliment.  The heavy metals which are removed from the body carry positive charge, which allows your body to hold more water. Zeolite eliminates these toxins through the body i.e. sweat, mucus, urine and bowels in so doing, you will loose water along with them, so you must DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. If you are on a diuretic when taking zeolite please start with a very low dose and drink extra water. Also, if you live in a dry climate where dehydration is already an issue, you will need to be aware of drinking more than usual. 2 to 3 litres of pure water a day.

 Detoxification dose: 5 - 10 drops 1x/day ion the evening for adults. A bottle of zeolite will last from 2 to 4 months. After 4 months cut it back to a maintenance dosage of 1 to 2 drops a day, with the amount increased if ever there is a viral, chemical, or other exposure.

 Contra-indications: Zeolite may remove supplemental lithium and chemotherapy agent's cisplatin and carboplatin, which contain platinum, from the body.  You can resume taking zeolite 3 days after using cisplatin and carboplatin, and 2 days after using other chemotherapies. Please consult your physician if you wish to take zeolite while on lithium.

Note: If you are an insulin dependant diabetic be aware that zeolite may lower your need for insulin. In general if you have any questions about taking zeolite with other medications you are on, please check with your physician.

Teeth and gums: Users have reported relief of gum/tooth discomfort by putting a drop on gums next to the problem tooth. Teething babies have been reported to find relief from a drop on their gums.

 Animals: Place the 1 or 2 drops on the animal's dry food to avoid the product being wasted. Your animals will also want to drink more water when taking this product, so make sure you have plenty available to them.

 Feeling Sleepy/ Having Energy: Sometimes people feel sleepy while detoxifying. Take naps if you can. If that is not possible, you might want to decrease your dosage. The body does deep healing during sleep, so be sure and sleep eight hours when possible. Others report greatly increased energy.   Detox symptoms: Due to the alkalizing effect of the zeolite, there may be a die-of of harmful organisms in your body-Candida, bacteria, and parasites. You may notice some detox symptoms from this i.e., headache, slight diarrhea or an overall aching. Experiment with your dosage. You can choose to detox faster or slower by lessening your drops per day. After the initial die-off, most people feel better than ever.  Once the zeolite absorbs a toxin, that toxin will not go back into your body tissues. This makes detoxification much easier than with other products.  Also zeolite does not remove beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and healthy trace minerals from the body. Zeolite has a hierarchy of affinities. It attracts mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic first. Then it pulls out other toxins.  If there are a lot of these metals and other toxins in the body, a fair amount of them may need to be cleaned up before your start to notice a big shift in the way you feel. Keep going and trust the process. Pay attention to small changes.

Feel free to contact me any time,

ANSWER: Feb 25 2009

Hi Reyna,

Yes I had heard that there was now an Australian zeolite product but our policy is not to recommend any such products until the claims for the product have been proven in a double blind trial published in a peer-reviewed journal.

I was interested to read Dr Cousens article and shall add it to our library.

In your email you refer me to but when I go there I find the page is not found and I have to choose from a menu. I chose Testimonials - - which states:

"Please note that some non-NCD brand companies are using these NCD-brand testimonies to sell their products. This is dishonest and misleading as the different brands are very different in their manufacture and composition."

I did however find your in the Wayback Machine of google archive project, at

When I went to as you instructed, I found a concerning statement on the Home Page of that site - - which states:

"These statements have not been evaluated by the Food & Drug Administration.  FD regulations prohibit the use of therapeutic or medical claims in conjunction with the sale of any product not approved by the FDA."

Is the product you are selling for $50 a bottle the Zeo Activ8* or Zeo Nutrient+ ? What is the difference between these two products? Is the product you are selling approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) or by our Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)?

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Yours Sincerely

Elizabeth O'Brien
