Zeolite is an amazing mineral and health supplement that, when ingested, has the ability to detoxify and heal the body. But besides this, zeolite can also be used topically for several purposes: to fight periodontitis, to cure athlete’s foot, and to accelerate the healing of minor cuts, wounds, and burns.
Periodontitis and Zeolite
Periodontitis is when microorganisms infect the ligaments and bones that support the teeth, which can cause the loss of teeth. Zeolite helps to stop the spread and effects of periodontitis.
Periodontitis is a severe dental disease that is initially caused by microorganisms, which adhere to the surface of teeth. Eventually, these organisms cause gingivitis (inflammation and infection of the gums). If left untreated, the bacteria and swelling will spread from the gums to the ligaments and bones that support the teeth. This disease is serious because a person who is suffering from periodontitis will eventually lose their teeth if it’s left untreated. Periodontitis is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.
Zeolite has actually been used as a treatment for periodontitis. It is believed that this mineral helps to absorb the microorganisms responsible for inflammation and infection. It can be used by applying powdered zeolite directly to the gums and/or mixing it in with toothpaste before brushing.
Athlete’s Foot and Zeolite
Athlete’s foot is caused by a fungal infection on the skin of the foot. Zeolite, when used topically, has proven to be effect against this fungus.
Athlete’s Foot is a rash located on the skin of the foot, which is caused by a fungal infection. The technical name for this fungus is tinea pedis, and it is closely related to other common forms of fungal infections, such as ring worm and jock itch. Athlete’s foot usually develops on the moist area between the toes, but can easily develop on other areas of the foot. Signs of athlete’s foot include itching and burning between the toes and on the soles of the feet; itchy blisters; cracking and peeling skin between the toes and on the soles; excessively dry skin on the soles and sides of the feet; and toenails that become thick, crumbly, ragged, discolored, and pull away from the nail bed.
