Consuming clay may seem like the action of a child rather than an adult, but wellness professionals are clear: Clay is good for you. As a mighty cleanser, bentonite detoxifies the liver, colon and skin. It also absorbs nasty bacteria throughout the system and even soaks up radiation — electromagnetic or otherwise. The list of ailments that respond to bentonite is long. It eliminates food allergies, parasites, candida and viral infections. Arthritis, diarrhea and stomach ulcers are conquered too. Think of bentonite as a benevolent porous sponge, mopping up toxins from poor food choices, contaminated water and modern living.
Time-honored treatment recognized by science
Dr. Weston A. Price, author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, observed that several indigenous groups around the world used clay readily to outsmart disease and illness. Those in the Andes, Central Africa and Australia would often carry dried balls of clay in their satchel to be consumed in water before meals — thereby warding off possible toxins or poisoning.
Tips for using bentonite clay
Two types of bentonite clay are available — sodium and calcium. For internal use, it is important to use calcium bentonite. Purity of the clay is vital to avoid contaminants — always use a reputable and trusted brand. Also, do not allow healing clays to come in contact with anything metal — to mix, use a glass jar with a plastic lid. Make sure to drink plenty of water to sidestep constipation. Likewise, it is a good idea to combine bentonite liquid with an insoluble fiber source to keep things moving in the colon.
According to Mountain Rose Herbs, typical preparations and general guidelines include:
Large physical stature
Take one tablespoonful of bentonite and add it to about eight ounces of liquid and thoroughly mix until the clay is completely combined with the water.
Medium physical stature
Take one heaping teaspoon of bentonite and add it to about eight ounces of liquid and thoroughly mix until the clay is completely combined with the water.
Light physical stature
Take one level teaspoon of bentonite and add it to about eight ounces of liquid and thoroughly mix until the clay is completely combined with the water.
For best results, do not take within two hours of medications or supplements. Additionally, those with iron intolerance or high blood pressure should not ingest bentonite clay.
