I think one of Gaia’s greatest gifts to Humanity is Bentonite clay, aka Montmorillonite clay or “edible earth”.
It’s a powerful, safe detoxifier that is now on the “endangered” list as the government buys up the land where companies are sourcing this marvelous health product.
Native peoples have used this for centuries, but it’s another one of those god-given things that we all have a right to know about—but didn’t.
Bentonite is what they call “ionic”. It’s molecular structure causes it to magnetically attract heavy metals like mercury, and others that we don’t want in our bodies such as the ones from chemtrails like aluminum, as well as lead and arsenic and binds to them so they can be expelled from the body. Its negative charge attracts bacteria and other impurities with positive charges and gives ‘em a big hug until they are eliminated together.
This volcanic clay also removes chemicals, pesticides and other pathogens and toxic substances from our bodies—both us and pets or domesticated animals.
One of the biggest causes of dis-ease today is inflammation—that’s internal. Bentonite can fix that.
There’s a reciprocal action here, too. Bentonite not only taketh away, it giveth back. It’s a calcium-rich product that replaces minerals in the body so it builds bone density. The government knows very well the advantages of Bentonite clay because NASA uses it to reverse the effects of osteoporosis that can plague astronauts on long space missions where there’s no gravity.
Bentonite clay can be eaten, drunk, or applied in a paste to the face as a facial mask to restore healthy skin and eliminate toxins and bacteria and for brushing your teeth. It kills the bacteria on the gums and makes teeth squeaky-clean with no fluoride or other toxic substances to deal with.
People with skin issues, such as melanoma, rashes or open cuts and sores can apply a Bentonite and water paste over a piece of gauze for rapid healing. It’s also great for insect bites and stings.
It’s a powerful detoxifier when used as a bath. There’s a slightly different product for that than the edible product but you mix a cup in a full bath with a non-metallic whisk and draw water as hot as you can stand it, soaking up to the neck for 20 – 30 minutes. Rinse, dry and moisturize and you’re on your way to a purer, healthier body.
I was thrilled with not only how beautifully the clay mixed into the water in a homogeneous suspension, but that it didn’t stick to the tub at all.
Another way to do a heavy metal detox is to apply a clay pack to one entire hand or foot each day, switching to a different one every days. Leave the clay on for 10 to 20 minutes or until the dry, then rinse off.
Some people are instructed to use Bentonite clay as a treatment for the liver, pancreas, thyroid, etc. They apply a clay pack over the organ one quarter of an inch thick and leave it on for the doctor-prescribed length of time.
I decided to use Bentonite rather than have my amalgam fillings removed so I’m using it for mercury detox, specifically, but whatever other benefits it provides along with way are welcome.
I have a glass of warm water morning and evening mixed with 3/4 of a teaspoon of the Red Desert Clay and have no issues with that. It has no taste, and looks like a latte.
Prices on various health packs vary from distributor to distributor so if you decide to get clean, check around. The company recommended to me in California ran out during a sale, so I found a place just south of me in Tucson that supplies the same basic products for much less and had my clay the next day. They use UPS to ship because some shippers use radiation to x-ray parcels which can have a negative effect on the clay, whereas UPS doesn’t.
The clay should NOT be white. If it is, it’s been overprocessed, or isn’t Bentonite at all and there are no significant healing properties in it. Mine is cocoa-coloured, but they can vary from cream to cocoa to slightly reddish.
How do people know it works? One of the main ways people see results if they don’t have significant health issues that resolve, is that the whites of their eyes brighten up. That’s proof of a successful detox to me.
If you do your own research you’ll learn about even more benefits of Bentonite clay.
Be sure to consult a medical expert if you are taking prescriptions or supplements so the clay doesn’t negate their affects with its binding properties.
You can view a video provided by Marcus Freudenmann on using a clay detox program to treat and prevent cancer. He’s German, but now living in Australia, so he has charming accent and he’s very entertaining. He is promoting a special with the company in California that ran out of product for an unknown length of time but you can source it out somewhere else.
