Our animals are exposed to lead in the air from exhaust, pesticides and herbicides that blow in from neighboring farms, aluminum in galvanized stock tanks, ethoxyquin in black rubber buckets and feed tubs, mercury in the air and forage from energy production, and the list goes on. Any feed or hay produced these days, even organically, will have a toxin load from airborn fallout and rainwater.These toxins build up in the body over time, and are not easy to spot. This non-acute or non-lethal exposure affects all the body systems and is passed to offspring through mother’s milk, as well as actually affecting the DNA.Possible symptoms include: allergies, agression/behavioral disorders, anemia, bone & joint disorders, cancer, diabetes, infertility, skin problems,thyroid problems, infections and birth defects. This exposure is why all my animals and my family get regular liver cleanses and also heavy metal cleanses. The liver does not recognize and filter out all the heavy metals.
Historically, chelation therapy was considered the best way to remove the metals. However, it was mainly used on people, is very expensive, and can be risky. There is now another approach available. Zeolites are a naturally occuring crystalline mineral found in rock deposits and formed by volcanic activity. Zeolites attract and bind toxic particles such as heavy metals, radioactive particles and certain other toxins. Zeolites have also been shown to help balance blood sugar levels, balance the body’s pH and support healthy immune function. Several forms of zeolite are commercially available. I use the Waiora Natural Cellular Defense, because they have the cleanest, and thus most cost-effective product.I also use clay and herbs to cleanse the liver and digestive tract of my animals several times a year. There are many good products out there. I have been very happy with Dynamite’s Miracle Clay and also their Herbal Tonic.I especially make sure to do a cleanse before breeding season starts, as I want my kids conceived from the cleanest genetic stock possible.
