Die Off Tip: Scooping Up Toxins With Binders
When pathogens live in your body they produce toxic waste products as part of their natural life cycle.
Think about it for a second, all animals and organisms poop, and harmful organism’s leave behind very toxic waste!
When you do a cleanse, like the Candida Cleanser, the Parasite Power Cleanse, or SIBO Treatment, the organism you’re attacking continues creating waste as part of it’s life cycle. It also will create toxins to fight back, and it releases even more toxic compounds when it finally dies.
Candida specifically releases harmful heavy metals when it dies!
Luckily you have binders that can help protect you from re-absorbing these toxins. Often die-off occurs when there are too many toxins circulating within your body and your detox organs can’t keep up. You can begin to feel sick, sluggish, fatigue, brain fog, body aches, and even nausea is common.
Watch the video below, Patty explains more about die-off.
What Are Symptoms Of Die-Off?
Binders will lessen the discomfort experienced during the common die-off or healing crisis.
Our Candida Cleanser Kit comes with ZEOCO, a powerful combination of zeolites and activated charcoal that quickly scoops up toxins. Many of our clients find substantial relief from their die-off symptoms with the help of ZEOCO.
We highly recommend that whenever you are cleansing you use some form of binder!
ZEOCO, zeolites, activated charcoal, diatomaceous earth, bentonite clay are an essential part of your detox tool kit. These natural substances differ in structure but have similar actions within the body.
What Is ZEOCO?
The founders of Candida Cleanser developed ZEOCO, a unique detox binder that combines 2 of the most powerful materials: activated charcoal and zeolite clay.
This blend is ideal for removing heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, aluminum and tin, all of these are stored by the Candida fungus and released during die- off.
Remember Chernobyl? Clays such as zeolite were chosen to encasing the reactor core to prevent radiation from escaping.
This synergistic blend of both activated charcoal and zeolite clay provides the support that has helped an incredible number of people manage and alleviate the side effects of Candida overgrowth and die-off.
To truly understand the profound healing benefits of Zeoco, you have to understand what activated charcoal and zeolites do on their own. Read up on more on the specific benefits of these two materials below.
Activated Charcoal is made from woody plant materials such as coconut husks and is “activated” by being baked to an extremely high temperature to remove all compounds except the structural carbon of the wood itself. Thus activated charcoal is a matrix with an incredibly high surface area and many recesses that attract and hold toxins, heavy metals, environmental contaminants, Candida byproducts and other compounds you do not want in your body.
Activated Charcoal has the incredibly ability to absorb and hold more toxins than any other substance known. It can bind lead, acetate, strychnine, chlorine, mercury and many other poisonous compounds. Activated charcoal renders these compounds harmless – they are no longer bioavailable and can be naturally eliminated by the body.
The use of activated charcoal dates back to ancient times. The father of medicine, Hippocrates, used it with his patients thousands of years ago, and today it is still used in ambulances and hospitals worldwide. Absorbent materials like activated charcoal area must have while on a parasite or Candida cleanse. It can help tremendously to mitigate die-off symptoms. We wouldn’t recommend doing a cleanse without it.
Activated charcoal is available in capsule or powdered form. You can mix one teaspoon of powder with water and drink it on an empty stomach. Don’t use a metal spoon, and always remembering to drink plenty of water throughout the day. As it is not absorbed by your body, it may causes your stools to appear black.
Zeolites are a master of detoxification, a volcanic mineral mostly made of of silica and alumina tetrahedra. This substance was created more than 300 million years ago when volcanic rock and ash reacted with seawater.
Similar to activated charcoal it has an impressive ability to absorb and hold toxins, but it can also release and exchange different chemicals, nutrients, toxins, and ions according to need in your body.
Now, this part is extremely fascinating. Zeolite has a unique honeycomb-like crystalline structure and within each honeycomb it holds an alkalizing negatively charged mineral such as calcium, potassium and magnesium. It works by swapping out one of these healthy minerals for any positively charged contaminants on or in your body such as mercury, lead, or nitrosamines.
Basically, it takes away the bad stuff by replacing it with good stuff. It’s a binder that helps with detox AND it acts as a mineral supplement. What’s more impressive is that it has shown to help repair leaky gut!
One study found that just 12 weeks of zeolite supplementation can significantly increase the integrity of the intestinal wall. This is especially helpful when healing from pathogens like Candida which is known to cause leaky gut!
Two Complimentary Binders
- Diatomaceous Earth
This absorbent material is a naturally occurring rock made from the skeletons of fossilized diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. It affects pathogens by cutting through their outer layer or exoskeleton, (including candida’s chitin layer!), and absorbing their bodily fluids, causing death. Because it has no effect on human tissue, it is commonly used as a non-toxic agricultural pesticide.It has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties.It is also high in minerals, especially silica (which happens to be the third most abundant trace element in the human body), and contributes to the production of collagen to repair your gut lining, strengthen skin, tendons and joints, helping to restore body tissue and improving digestion.Diatomaceous earth must be taken on an empty stomach. Start with 1/2 teaspoon per day in 8 ounces of water. Drink it immediately after mixing and follow with another 8 ounces of water. It is naturally dehydrating so you must drink lots of water when taking DE. You can gradually increase the dosage to 1-2 tablespoons per day.
- Bentonite Clay
Bentonite clay is derived from volcanic ash deposits. It has a long history of human use, including native South American cultures and the ancient Greeks and Romans, to treat a range of conditions including rashes, poisoning and diarrhea. It also works as a negatively charged magnet, attracting toxins, parasites and pathogens. However, as a clay, it can get stuck in your system, so it is recommended to take it with psyllium husk to move it through your system and prevent constipation. Psyllium is an indigestible fiber that helps to move matter through your intestinal tract for elimination.You can combine one teaspoon of bentonite clay and one teaspoon of psyllium powder in an 8 ounce glass of water and stir. Do not use metal spoons or utensils with the clay. Drink it immediately or the psyllium can form a gel that is hard to drink. Follow with another full glass of water and make sure to drink lots of water throughout the day.
The moral of the story is, make sure you are equipped with some form of binder whenever you are cleansing pathogens from your body! Everyone’s body is different and one binder may serve better than another.
When working the powders of these materials it’s always a good idea to use a wooden or plastic spoon, not a metal one, as you can deactivate the magnetic properties of the negative charge.
Remember to drink plenty of water when working with binders!
