To speed up that endless wait for an oil change and tire rotation yesterday, I re-read one of my most valuable books, by Perry A~
Nature’s Own Miracle Cure Calcium Bentonite Clay
How To Cure 101 Ailments With Calcium Bentonite Clay
← Living Clay Starter Kit
It is an inexpensive book (or may be free with a purchase), and I urge everyone to get a copy. I get my clay supplies (and that book) from a retail company in California, called Living Clay.
When I have had severe intestinal issues, and my doctors neither identified the cause nor provided a cure of the symptoms, using clay was one of the tools I used to heal myself.
Clay has been used, internally and externally, throughout the world for centuries by humans, animals, birds, and insects for its curative value. Only Western Civilization seems to have forgotten the benefits. I’m here to remind you of things your grandparents probably knew and used.
All clay originates from volcanic ash; but there are seven different “family groups.” Not all clays are “created equal;” so, if you are planning to eat or drink it for health benefits, you need to be sure you have chosen the best and purest form.
I just go to the web site above, so I don’t have to think about it!.
However, at Whole Foods http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/, I recently discovered Redmond Clay ™ and found it to be equally wonderful as an ingestible (edible) clay.
According to Wikipedia,
Redmond Clay is a brand and a registered trademark of a montmorillonite / bentonite clay mined near the town of Redmond, Utah. Redmond Clay is produced and sold in a powder form as a medicinal clay, natural remedy or alternative medicine.
Clay is in so many of our products: for example, Kaopectate, cosmetics, toothpaste, paints, medicines, and more. So, chances are you’re already using it. You may even use it as a facial mask for cleansing or as a poultice to put onto bruises to reduce swelling and inflammation. But, there are internal cleansing properties to it, which allow the body to heal itself.
How Does Clay Work?
Absorption and Adsorption
Clay works in two ways per these quotes from the book, Living Clay:
- “Absorption is the process of drawing substances into the clay’s internal molecular structure – similar to a sponge absorbing water.
- Adsorption is the process by which substances stick to the outside surface of a clay molecule – similar to the way a strip of Velcro works.”
Electrical ionic charge. Our bodies are attacked by things which have a positive charge, and clay has a negative charge. You know the saying, “Opposites Attract.” Well, that’s what happens when the clay attracts those problem children and takes them right out of our bodies. Those problem children include bacteria, viruses, fungi, diseases, toxins, metals, synthetic chemicals, and more.
Not all clay is suitable for drinking, and the book gives you questions to ask on page 5. It refers to a number of anecdotes about various conditions in which clay was used to stimulate healing, including a Biblical reference to when Jesus used clay to heal a blind man; but it is not a religious book.
I just discovered a great, healthful living-oriented website, which talks about this and the pros and cons of using clay. The site is Empowered Sustenance™, which offers:
“Bentonite Clay 101 + 15 Head-to-Toe Uses.”
I have not read them all yet; but it sounds very promising, so here is their link: http://empoweredsustenance.com/bentonite-clay-uses/.
Empowered Sustenance™ describes clay this way.
What It Is & What It Does
Bentonite clay is a clay that is mined from the earth, and it’s formed after volcanic ash has weathered and aged in the presence of water. It has a strong negative electromagnetic charge, and when activated by water, it acts like a magnet in and on our bodies, pulling metals and toxins to it. It also has an affect on the body’s pH and provides the body with some vital minerals at the same time.
How is Clay Used?
The Living Clay book tells you exactly how to mix clay and use it in the following ways
- Dry powder
- Poultice (clay pack)
- Hydrated topical application (wet and applied to place of injury or illness)
- Liquid drink
- Clay bath.
It tells you that it is contraindicated (not to be used without first consulting your physician) if you are taking medications which contain metals, since clay helps remove metals from the body.
What Can It Be Used For?
The list is too, too long, so get the book. But, here are some examples (and the book specifies the kind and length of recommended treatments).
|Calluses||Cancer||Candida||Chemotherapy Detox||Colon Cleanse|
|Gingivitis||Gulf War Syndrome||Headaches||Heart Health||Hemorrhoids|
|Herpes Virus||Irritable Bowel Syndrome||Indigestion||Kidney Stones||Liver Cleanse|
|Menstrual Cramps||Migraines||Nail Fungus||Parasites||Poison Ivy|
|Psoriasis||Radiation Therapy||Sexually Transmitted Diseases||Shingles||Sinusitis|
|Sunburns||Toothache and Dental Issues||Ulcers||Varicose Veins||Warts|
|Weight Loss||Wounds||Yeast Infections|
This book also has recipes for food which includes the special clay, as well as for drinks.
I hope you will get the book, get the product, and live healthy lives happily ever after!
