Calcium Bentonite Clay is Mother Nature's pharmacy. It is volcanic ash with all the
impurities burned out leaving pure trace minerals. Clay is a nano crystal of highly
charged electromagnetic energy from the thermodynamic heat of a volcano. It can NOT be
duplicated in a laboratory. Only God can make clay.
Most clays have a high alkaline pH. Clay is homeostatic and as such is an adaptogen that brings balance and equilibrium to the body. A balanced body can heal itself. That is what the body is designed to do when it isn't in overload and unable to filter out the build up of toxins and wastes in the body that begin causing health problems. Calcium Bentonite Clay's strength lies in its ability to adsorb and absorb, to suck into itself toxins, chemicals, viruses, molds and the bad bacteria, hold them captive within the molecule and carry them out of the body.1
The electromagnetic energy of the clay stimulates circulation, bringing blood flow and oxygen to revitalize cellular repair and awaken latent cell energy.
It seems hard to believe that a simple handful of clay soil can help with so many things but it really can; in a remarkably short amount of time and with great ease it brings about swift results. The beauty of clay is it is so safe. The FDA gives Bentonite Clay a GRAS rating meaning Generally Regarded as Safe. At the same time a company cannot legally make a healing claim about clay without the million dollar testing and qualifying programs.
There is a long recorded history of animals in the wild instinctually seeking and eating clay to heal themselves. The medicine men of many aboriginal tribes have long used clay as part of their healing treatments.
The kicker is all clays are different, even within the same family of clays so it is important to know your clays. The Smectite family of clays is known for healing clays. Calcium Bentonite is a Smectite clay.2
Albeit all clays have some healing potential, there are a few that are amazingly stronger than others. Some are good for internal use and others are much better for external use. A few are exceptional in both areas.
From a gentle internal cleansing to healing wounds in half the time, to stopping Acid Reflux and intestinal disorders, to stopping food poisoning, to detoxing heavy metals, to healing burns and insect bites, to mending broken bones rapidly, to relieving strained muscles, to helping skin rashes, acne and gum problems, to aiding children with Autism, to expelling internal parasites, to stopping anemia, clay is a natural replacement to most drugs with no organ damaging negative side effects.
Clay Baths are quickly becoming regarded as a safe and easy way to detox the body from heavy metals. Besides, they are very relaxing, and they relieve muscles strain and soreness. Your skin feels heavenly after the bath.3
