The final role that zeolite plays is as a broad-spectrum immune system supporter. Zeolites act in a manner that could be described as common cold prevention. Zeolites create a natural trap of pre-flu components, preventing the replication of these intruders, and therefore their ability to make us sick. It does this because harmful pathogens produce everything in parts (in a production line) and at the end they put it all together. What zeolites do is literally absorb the pathogen parts into their structure for later elimination through the urine or stool.
Dr. Cousens wants to be clear that its effect against pathogens is not necessarily immediate, but only seems to happen after you have been taking liquid activated zeolites for about four to six months, and the heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides have been significantly lowered.
Research has also shown that, in a way that is not entirely clear, zeolites act to regulate the immune system, either up-regulating it or down-regulating it according to the situation. This is very important in a world in which most people’s immune systems are seriously and continually being compromised.
Zeolite clays have and currently are being researched on their effect on herpes virus 1, herpes zoster, Coxsackie’s virus B-5, ecco-virus 7, and also adeno virus 5. .
