Overcoming disease

Hubby's doing the community emergency response training and they've said that whether a person lives or dies is 90% mental. The same goes for disease. My dad has decided he will not die from lung cancer and he is beating the odds. I'm going to follow his example. I've talked a bit about this zeolite stuff my dad and I have been taking. He started on supplements around the same time he started chemo in October. The biggest improvement they've noticed has been with the zeolite. Since he's been taking it, the effects of chemo haven't been as noticeable. He still feels pretty sucky on chemo weeks, but he looks a ton better and gets over it faster.

So I started taking it for my endometriosis pain in December and I can't believe the immediacy of the effects. After a few days my fatigue is gone, and after only about 2 days I have little to no pain. I've been off of it a couple of times to test it out and can't believe how much it was helping me. I refuse to accept what the doctors have told me about my options. I'm determined to cure this without surgery and without being on painkillers and hormones for the next 20 years. I keep looking for things on the web so maybe the experiences I post will help others.

Because the culprit of endometriosis pain is estrogen I'm going to try to eliminate as much as I can from my diet. That means no more soy milk and really limiting my animal product (unless raised w/o hormones) intake. Xenoestrogens found in pesticides and air pollution are also culprits. Dioxin has been shown to have a direct link to endometriosis. Zeolite cleans these out of your body so I'm going on a zeolite detox. There's nothing on their website yet about endometriosis and zeolite so I'm doing my own experiments. Let's see if I can get rid of it instead of just control it. I'm going to stay on zeolite and eliminate these things from my diet for a while and see what happens. I also need to use less plastic since it has estrogens in it.

  4. I also neglected to mention that I've lost 10 lbs since I started taking it in early Dec. I can't prove causation, but I haven't been exercising. I am trying to eat healthier (but when I've done that in the past I haven't lost anything) and when you take zeolite you have to drink lots of water to help it flush out toxins, which I'm sure is helping.

  6. Fantastic news about you taking Zeolite for your Endometriosis! I thought that I was only the 2nd person on the internet to have tried it for Endo! I happened to type in a search to see if anyone else had a success and here I am!

    I too have been taking a Zeolite - NCD (Natural Cellular Defence) since the end of Dec 06 and am haing great results. I started in Xmas eve and had been on it for only 2 weeks when my period went from a 23 day cycle to 26 days and now I am in day 28 and no sign of it yet and I can't be pregnant. Gone are the days when I bled everyday.

    I have stage 5 endo with alot of huge fibroids and my bowel is fused to my Uterus. I follow a Complimentary Medicine path due to being allergic to everything else that I have tried. I noticed after the 2 weeks of taking it that my period was shorter and not as much clotting and far less pain. I'm actually looking forward to this period to see what happens. I've noticed that my Irritable Bowel Syndrome has eased and I have more energy to name only a few things.

    Good luck to all of us with Endometriosis
