Zeolite is used to prevent and treat diarrhoea and gastrointestinal diseases in many parts of the world, especially Cuba, Eastern Europe, Russia and the United Kingdom.
Australian zeolite powder has been used many times very successfully for this purpose.
Only a small dose of zeolite powder is necessary and it works very quickly. One teaspoon or less will stop the symptoms of most cases of diarrhoea and associated cramping in 30 minutes to an hour.
Australian zeolite powder has helped to save the lives of many babies and small children in Kiribati where diarrhoea claims too many young lives. Zeolite powder and capsules are distributed in Kiribati free of charge by the Island Rescue Project which was founded by Carol Armstrong from the Sunshine Coast. Carol has visited the islands twice and has seen the results for herself. I asked Carol to share some of her experiences:
“It has been wonderful to see the difference zeolite powder has made to the people of Kiribati, the I-Kiribati. Their island is situated in the middle of the South Pacific and is badly affected by climate change.
The I-Kiribati live in crowded conditions with little in the way of sanitation or plumbed water. The coral atolls are as flat as a pancake – no hills, rivers or lakes and often periods of drought. There are some rain water tanks but not nearly enough for the population. Clean safe water is in short supply and many have to drink contaminated well water.
These conditions cause gastro problems, diarrhoea, staph infected sores and respiratory disease. When I found out that so many babies and young children were dying from diarrhoea I was determined to help. The unacceptable infant mortality rate is that 1:12 children do not survive early childhood due to water related illness.
I had been working with Australian zeolite powder for many years and knew very well that it stops diarrhoea quickly. I knew this would be a safe, natural solution.
It took several months to organise but about two years ago I travelled to Kiribati with thousands of zeolite capsules to distribute to those in need. We called the capsules ZeoKlin which means ‘zeolite clean’ in the I- Kiribati language and they each contained 520 mg of superfine Australian zeolite power.
During that trip I saw for myself how the zeolite powder saved the lives of babies and toddlers who were suffering from debilitating diarrhoea and associated dehydration.
A team of young volunteers were trained to go out to the various villages to educate about our clean water strategies and diarrhoea remedies. They educated and supplied to a village representative who now has the duty to report back.
Some islanders get ciguatera poisoning from the fish and crabs which live on the coral. We were able to help two men recover, with zeolite treatment. They had been extremely ill. One man was so ill from vomiting and diarrhoea, his skin was shuddering and crawling as he moaned in pain. He was given three ZeoKlin capsules to take every 4 hours. He immediately slept (he had not been sleeping) from 9 pm to midnight when the family woke him for his second dose. He was feeling better, wanted to smoke, ate something and had a bowel movement, then slept til morning. The next morning he was well again and back at work in the babai (taro) pits.
There is a great incidence of skin complaints, sores and wounds that itch and don’t heal. This is possibly due to the prevalent pre-diabetic condition in many people. There is also a genetic predisposition to skin infection with a link between the Strep A virus in these sores (and strep throat) and rheumatic heart failure. Infected mosquito bites, scabies and impetigo are common complaints. We use a zeolite based skin gel to help the skin problems.
There is great interest in our zeolite and water purification tools. They don’t have much at all on the island. They were grateful for our gifts to them. They now have some safe, natural remedies they can use.
Back in Tarawa again, we returned to stories of two adults and five children suffering from vomiting and diarrhoea, all experienced success clearing up with just two doses of our ZeoKlin.
We heard of an 18 month old baby who was suffering badly with vomiting and diarrhoea. He was sent home from the hospital as they could do no more for him other than the IV saline drip at the hospital and then sent him home with some electrolyte re-hydration and the advice to keep up fluids.
His mother heard about our products and gave him 1 capsule of ZeoKlin in his bottle of water followed by another dose four hours later. He then recovered much faster than we expected.
A second toddler was in hospital for the same reasons and they could not find a vein to insert the saline drip. They had to make a cut above her ankle to insert the drip. She was then sent home. Her mother also came to us for help and gave her baby the same dose treatment in her food. She recovered the next day and we monitored her for a while as she did have a slight temperature.
We were happy to see such dramatic results so soon. Normally we would expect to give the ZeoKlin for one to two days.
My working life now centres around the I-Kiribati, whose islands are regularly swamped by seasonal king tides. The sea water floods their drinking wells rendering them unfit to use for 15 years. The outlying islands have very little water, primitive sanitation and little access to medications.
The Island Rescue Project was formed in 2014 to help raise funds and facilitate travel to the islands to distribute water treatments, rain water tanks and natural health remedies – many of which include zeolite in their formulations.”
