...around the spiral I go, time to revisit this important topic.

There are three works that anyone interested in extraordinary health and fitness should read; or anyone interested in breathing:

1.  The book, "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art", by James Nestor - This book is an incredible dive into the importance of nose breathing over mouth breathing for health and even facial structure.

2.  Wim Hof - Even just one of his short tutorial videos

3.  "The Oxygen Advantage", book by Patrick Mckeown

One really needs to explore all three to get a good overview of the practice and science of breathing... and this should just be considered an initial dive into an extremely important topic.

Of note and interest:  Patrick's oxygen advantage breathing methods are pretty much the exact opposite of Wim Hof, so exploring BOTH works is highly suggested.

Since this topic was originally about the benefits of CO2, and things like high altitude training:

The Oxygen Advantage teaches a person how to do "high altitude training", without the high altitude.  You can get the same advantages of high altitude training by using measured breathing methods which start to "starve" the body of oxygen in order to reset and train the brain's O2/CO2 regulation system.

If anyone not familiar with the art and science of breathing masters all of the concepts in these 3 presentations, it will completely transform one's life... and, all of it is completely free and can be done anywhere.

Even so, as I mentioned previously, this should all be considered just an initial dive.  If anyone wants to take a high dive down into the rabbit hole, there is much more to experience and learn,  and it all simply becomes more profound the deeper the dive!

Hi Connie -

I've modified your profile to give you Charter status, you should now be able to download in the download section.

The pH book really needs to be expanded, but I think it contains really critical information regarding the true nature of body pH and mineral issues.

Thanks so much for your response! I actually just found your post from a few years ago on osteoporosis. I have some 9X roasted salt so I need to start taking it.  ;D I can't download the book you talk about because I'm not a charter member. How do I become one? I love helping people, especially in these crazy times, as a retired nurse and so appreciate your wonderful, informative help too.

Yes, we still (of course!) sell our "signature" green desert clay as always.

I would expect the clay blend to work equally well in all ways.

As far as osteoporosis, the first step is to bring soft tissue pH balance back into homeostasis.  I would say that "almost always" over-acidity is responsible for loss of bone density (if not in outer space ;)).  Calcium is literally leached from bone to compensate.

Sometimes clay alone might accomplish this, but usually, the body requires extra measures.

When pH has been corrected, and when eating habits are great (we need fat to carry minerals to cells), edible clay use along with bone-density building activity (usually some sort of CAREFUL weight training) can start to reverse the issue.

When all of these are in place, one may consider a balanced blend of alkaline macro minerals which are properly chelated, with the idea of keeping a balanced mineral intake that delivers calcium directly to the bone...  but this is more experimental, and I do not have specific recommendations.  Generally speaking, you don't want to take in too much calcium.

Thanks for the new blend. Excited to add it to my wonderful clay collection. Do you think taking it internally will help with osteoporosis like it did your mother. How much do you suggest taking if it does. Thanks again for all your much appreciated information.
Eytons' Earth Discussions / Micronized Zeolite & Traditional Use Therapeutic Clay
« Last post by Jason on November 21, 2021, 11:21:14 AM »
I've been asked on many occasions why I don't have an abundance of information on our websites about using micronized zeolite.

Some people may not realize how much research I did on what I call traditional use therapeutic homeostatic clays.  I did decades worth of research long before offering clays commercially (which I did out of a market need, rather than a personal desire).

For traditional clays, I could examine literally hundreds to thousands of years of use by humans and animals.  With the help of an expert contact at the USGS, and other experts, I collected a tremendous amount of analytical data on all of the true therapeutic clay deposits I could find, globally.

In order to really start to understand clays, I had to overcome many obstacles, which I view as sort of initiations:  Was I going to follow the data and thus the truth, or hold onto confirmation bias?

I studied the earth from which "evolutionary" clays were born from.  I studied their individual components.  I studied how water and clay interacted in nature.  I studied how clay changed (or didn't) substances which were mixed with it.  I studied how different waters and clay interacted.

Native-use clays lead me on an incredible and highly personal journey over decades.  I feel confident about what I write about them because of all of the accurate and extensive information I have, as well as a great deal of personal experience.

When zeolite first started to hit the market for personal use, I was not impressed.  If clays were rubies and sapphires, zeolites were blocks of coal and rock dust, at best.

I purchased quite a few samples to test.  They offered me absolutely zero value.  What I always held in my hand was dead and dusty rock dust (yes I used dust twice because there was always more than one kind of dust), a far cry from the living clays I'd spent decades studying.

Incidentally, if "regular" zeolites were dead rock dust, then I viewed laboratory-grown zeolite crystals as pretty much UNdead.

I don't write about this or talk about it much because it is pseudo-science at best.  However, if it adds potential teaching value or potentially useful information, I would read tea leaves or beat a drum on a mountain top to learn something of true value.  I don't much care about the source.  Information can be evaluated on its own merits later. 

LIFE ITSELF has a consciousness that expresses through everything in nature.  Things that go through a natural process in creation are quite different than things that are created via current scientific means.  Until we can cut an apple in half, and then make it whole again, we really are still operating in the dark when it comes to the perfection of natural creation.  This isn't good or bad, it is simply an observation. 

A crystal might have the same chemical equation, the same expression of molecules, and even have the same exact chemical properties, but a laboratory crystal and a natural crystal are NOT the exact same.

When it comes to natural medicine, I try to stick with natural.

Anyway, I received complaint after complaint via email as zeolites went through the unwashed hands of multi-level marketing "gurus".  I simply avoided them.

As some studies begin coming out (using zeolites not readily available in North America, by the way), I noted with interest that the micronized zeolites worked very similar to clay, but without all of the added benefits that we say with clay use.

I saw absolutely zero reason to add any zeolite to my own personal health regime.  However, I didn't see any reason to bad mouth them, either.  So, when asked, I recommended people try to find a high-quality source from Europe.  I was no expert.

However, one day I was at my personal doctor's office.  He's a top-notch medical doctor with environmental toxicity expertise. He introduced me to the micronized zeolite we use.

The minute I put it in my mind, I felt the difference.  I began a long process of exploration which is ongoing.

There are other posts about the technical properties of micronized zeolite in the "Eytons Earth Discussions" sub-forum.  I won't repeat them here.

What I will say is that I still consider myself a beginner when it comes to micronized zeolite.  Unlike clay, there are no real experts to consult.  Not really. 

I don't like talking about things I really don't know.  I know that micronized zeolite is ALTERNATIVE medicine, not natural medicine.  Now, I love alternative medicine.  I love my ozone therapy, my specialized silver formulations, my liposomal essential oils, my advanced chelation therapies, etc.

BUT, these are alternative.  Not alternative to modern medicine (well, that too), but alternative to nature.

So, here is what I KNOW (not what I can prove) about using micronized zeolite... where I use micronized zeolite in addition to traditional use clays.  This isn't everything that it might be good for, or everything it might do, it is what I personally know via my own personal explorations and studies:

1.  The zeolite we use, and the TMAZ European ones, has 2-3 times the sorption (the pulling power) of any natural clay.  This is VERY USEFUL.

2.  The particle range of around 10 microns is the perfect complement to smectites or micas like illite.  Perfect.  The particles make it through the liver to detox the bloodstream and in particular the kidneys.  They do it WITHOUT MESSING WITH HUMAN CELLS.  This is a CRITICALLY important consideration.

3.  The particles in the bloodstream fix free oxygen.  This is amazing beyond belief, but may only be noticed by super high-end professional atheletes, or "pulmonauts", or those who are professional "breathers" of some sort.  I guestimate that it accomplishes this probably a thousandfold compared to smectites used in people without perfect liver function (which is very rare these days).

4.  The smaller particles have anti-tumor/anti-cancer properties.

So, this mineral is an excellent addition to a detox program.

It is currently, personally, a top-five choice of minerals useful for detoxification (can you imagine how many detox substances I've studied over the last 30 years?).

It is not a replacement for therapeutic, homeostatic clays.  It CAN be used as a replacement for very specific detox programs when one is only looking for it ability to sorpt.

While this may change, if I only had the choice of one "detox" mineral, it would be our green desert clay.  If I only had two minerals, the second would be French green illite.  The third would be the highest quality micronized zeolite.

However, there is a 1.5, and the 1.5 would be nine times roasted purple bamboo salt.  There is also a 2.5, which is molecular hydrogen.  There is a 3.5 which would be bicarbonates (yes, special "fluid chalks" DO have profound uses).

Micronized zeolite simply works a bit differently.  I've seen a person detox for 2.5 YEARS using micronized zeolite daily.  The person knew because it significantly affected the smell of the urine.  It took closer to 3 years for the urine smell to return to normal, and kidney function went from stage 3 failure to normal (this is only one case history, it is not proof or scientifically significant...just interesting).

Now with several years of feedback, people just love using the micronized zeolite.  In my opinion, that is what it should always be about:  the love of it.
Eytons' Earth Discussions / NEW 3 Clay Blend: A Long Time Coming...
« Last post by Jason on November 14, 2021, 12:00:11 PM »
Greetings, everyone:

Many years ago when I was nothing more than a pup, I was out in the middle of nowhere talking to an old-timer while visiting my favorite  desert artesian hot springs.   This man was of the generation that wore the label "old-timer" as a badge of honor.  This individual took one look at my tattered face, and told me, "Son, you need to go out and get yourself some Bezoite."

He drew me a map to the location of a natural deposit.  It was now dark and late, but I didn't want to wait.  I drove my old 1970 Ford F-150  truck (with the granny gear!) off onto this secluded dirt road which was even more deeply into the middle of nowhere.  That truck probably shouldn't have been on the road at all, let alone with me in it, alone in the deep secluded desert.

I managed to find the deposit and filled a bucket up with pure clay rock.  At least, it looked like rock to me.  I drove back to the other middle of nowhere, and hydrated the clay with the amazing hot springs water which gurgled up from deep within the Earth, and spread it all over my face, head, and neck.

Years old pain melted away, leaving me in state of quiet awe.

The rest is history.  I sought out every scrap of paper in I could find in print about the nature of these types of clays.  My cursory exploration lasted several years.  The internet had no been invented yet, so good information was hard to find and had to be sought out the old fashioned way, by visiting used book stores, libraries, and tracking down actual people via word of mouth accounts.

This particular clay was so absolutely amazing, that I thought that there could not possibly be anything else like it on the planet.  I was right... and wrong!

The internet came to town, and we formed the first global website on the therapeutic applications of clay.  Our precious clay was not commercially available at all, and I did not have a reliable source to send people to, which was the only frustrating part of the project.

Soon, I started getting emails from all over the world.  An abundance of these correspondences were from people who had found THEIR OWN clay, and were writing to tell me about it, as well as get some further advice on how we used ours.

I grudgingly had to admit that there were other amazing clays out there.  I had to drop both my confirmation bias, and my cognitive dissonance.  That's what GOOD science taught me to do.  I would only know a fraction of what I know today had I not sought out and studied all of the world's amazing therapeutic clay deposits (at least, as many as I could find).

Fast forward decades.

My obsession with "minerals" permutated into an obsession with energy (water, earth, and sunshine: The Eytons' Earth motto), which was also combined with a co-obsession with particle sizing.  Through long and painstaking observations and scientific explorations, all of that has eventually been replaced with an obsession with GEOMETRY and how micro crystals produce sub-atomic (in actuality, quantum) phenomenon.

I finally got the message clay was trying to teach me all of these years.  It's not about the sorption (yes, that's great), or the particle size (which helps define where clay functions), or the pH (defines how clay interactions with bio-terrains), or the ORP (which effects how clay approaches detoxification), or the trace minerals (some of which can be VERY exotic and unexpected), or the CHEMICAL or MATERIAL effects of the particle shapes (which help determine the safety of use, and particularly exactly HOW clay's ionic/electric/"magnetic")...or the ratio of co-minerals, anion or otherwise... In truth, it was ALL about the geometry.

I can't currently publish my suppositions, because they cannot yet be clearly documented via scientific means.

All of this mad dive into oblivion, and even more,  has always gone into my explorations with clay (and subsequently, water and energy).

Our new three clay blend is, as far as I'm concerned,  vastly superior than the old one, which of course was so many people's favorite edible clay.  The goal of THAT clay?  ...was to temper the power of two clays, while still harnessing their unique properties.  When the three became one, a highly effective yet gentle clay formulation emerged.

This three clay blend is different.  It's more about geometry.

Now, the change to the blend was not that dramatic.  I bet most people won't even notice it.  The dominant clay still rules the appearance and pretty much the taste. 

In essence, we replaced an ancient river smectite clay, with an ancient sea bed clay.  We loved the trace mineral content of the red desert clay (Terramin), but we feel that the therapeutic properties of sea minerals are a bit superior.

When I look at the difference between illite (whcih is a mica) and bentonite/montmorillonite (smectite), it's actually pretty cool:  Illite is born from smectite.   It is a devolution of this "volcanic origin" clay.  In many ways, it is the opposite of smectite.  It is all very "Taoistic".  At half the particle sizing (the BREADTH, NOT the thickness), and with an abundance of amazing dendrites (without the "football field"-like smooth and flat surface which gives this class of clays it's amazing micro-crystalline sorption properties as well as providing the potential to develop powerful charge layers), Illite works by doing the same thing, but often achieves it in a different manner.

I like to call the illite "The Grappler" because it grabs things.  It grabs things with the right electrical charge, leaves things alone with the wrong electric charge (molecular structures with a dominant net "negative" charge), and yet will grab the right SIZE things with a more neutral charge.  Most people don't really "get" this about illite.  If you think about it, it is absolutely amazing, especially considering it was BIRTHED from aged smectite.

I've talked about illite quite a bit in other forum posts, so I won't duplicate the commentary here!

Anyway, I had plans to switch to this blend about seven years ago, when we first started having supplier issues with the red desert clay.

Now, I still am looking for a pristine ancient river clay.  JUST the right combination of circumstances must occur for this type of clay deposit to form.  Please note that many, if not most, red clays are NOT actually edible.  You can eat some of them, but you risk toxic side effects, depending on EXACTLY what gives clay its red color! 

I have corresponded with many people who have their very own "secret stashes" of river clay, which I think is awesome...  but, these are often more modern deposits, and are found at current river banks.  Many of them are sodium-dominant bentonites deposited directly by ancient volcanic activity.

Anyway, I hope everyone will enjoy this new blend as much as we do!  We don't feel that there is any sacrifice making this necessary, "forced" change.

I do still have a VERY limited supply of red desert clay, and may be able to make a handful of one-gallon units if anyone is super attached to the old blend...  this was NOT our choice to make a fast switch, we would have preferred to have phased it out over a period of a few years.

YES.  It is an important point.  While insufflation is excellent, most of the actual ozone is used up rapidly, and will never make it ***as ozone*** to the extremities, probably not past the bloodstream (although other bio-active forms of activated oxygen might remain).

With funneling or external ozone, we think that some ozone does make it through the skin, but most is converted to organic peroxides which slowly infuse the area over a long period of time (like ozonated oil produced beneath the skin).
