So I'm eating clay to get better?! That's absurd! Well, not really. Bentonite Clay has been used for a long time by natives and Indians to cure many diseases and health issues. Bentonite Clay has been used in many areas of alternative medicine, as a detoxifier.
Bentonite Clay is a substance that can be found around Fort Benton, Wyoming, but they can also be found in various places around the world, especially in the Northwest of the United States. It is like a natural resource; it isn't man-made, artificial drug. But enough with the Bentonite Clay trivia, what does it actually do for our colon? An Effective Detoxifier
Bentonite Clay is an effective detoxifier with substances that absorb toxins from our GI tract. Bentonite clay can never be absorbed by the body, so it's not poisonous at all. When we take Bentonite Clay with Psyllium Husk, the clay does the important duty of absorbing all toxic substances from our mucuous linings - it's like a magnet that attracts toxins. Psyllium Husk then finishes the job by "pushing" all these nasty substances such as mucoid plaque out of our body.
The reason Bentonite Clay is so effective in doing this is because it has a negative charge, and most toxins in our body have a positive charge. We learned in Physics class that opposites attract (you were paying attention, right?). So it makes Bentonite Clay so useful in binding to toxins.
Bentonite Clay can absorb any toxic substances imaginable: impurities, harmful bacteria, poisons, pesticides, pathogens, parasites, etc. It does this without posing any nasty side effects in us, because as mentioned before, it can't be absorbed by us.
According to Frederic Damrau, Bentonite Clay can help put a stop to diarrhea:
"When 35 individuals suffering from diarrhea took two tablespoons of bentonite in distilled water daily, the diarrhea was relieved in 97% in 3.8 days, regardless of the original cause of the problem."
Bentonite Clay ultimately cleans the intestinal linings. After a colon cleanse, our colon can then absorb nutrients and minerals much easier than before. As a result, our symptoms and sicknesses disappear from this boost in absorption, and the elimination of toxins.
Are there any bad things about Bentonite Clay?There is a slight trace of aluminum in Bentonite, but it's hardly worth fretting about. That said, if your body is intolerant to even a little aluminum, it's best to take Oxypowder instead of Bentonite Clay and Psyllium Husk.
Bentonite Clay can also absorb some nutrients, so it's important to take it at least 1 hour before or after a meal. Don't take Bentonite Clay with vitamins or supplements at the same time.
You shouldn't take Bentonite alone - always take it with some fiber, such as Psyllium Husk. Why? To prevent it from getting stuck in our intestines. The fiber will push the clay out, as well as all the toxins it attracts.
What are other uses of Bentonite Clay?Bentonite can also be used externally, to treat skin problems and for detox baths. Some people have used Bentonite Clay to treat skin rashes with a lot of success. If you have skin eruptions such as acne, you should try applying Bentonite Clay on your skin, as it does a tremendous job of extracting/removing all the toxic matter buried inside your skin.
Bentonite can also be used in a detox bath, where we apply the Bentonite Clay around our body. It helps releases toxins out of our body, and it is a great routine to practice during colon cleansing.
