Article: Bentonite Clay - A Catalyst for Enriching Blood
by Perry A~ Arledge

Many experiments have confirmed the useful role of clay in the reconstitution of the blood. Spectacular improvements in the composition of blood have been observed following a protocol of clay and improved diet.

As the old adage goes, "You are what you eat." Most of our physical ailments are the result of our life style of poor eating habits and lack of exercising. Most of what we put in and on our bodies contributes to a buildup of acidity, clogged arteries, high blood pressure and imbalance in pH Levels and numerous diseases.

One theory for the origins of life proposes that clay particles acted as a catalyst, converting simple organic molecules into more complex structures. [1] This is important to note because revisions in diet alone are not enough to solve the problems associated with poor nutrition. The body needs a catalyst to aid in transforming the nutritive elements, contributing to their assimilation, fixation and storage in the body. Bentonite Clay is an important catalyst. 

With good nutrition and help from a quality, calcium Bentonite clay, you will be amazed at how quickly you can begin to rectify the ills we have inflicted on our bodies. The green healing clays from the Smectite family of clays have long been respected for healing properties. Some of these clays draw as much as 33 times their molecular weight.

Calcium bentonite clay works with the body to reduce acidity by balancing the pH level, cleansing the colon, ridding the colon of parasites, detoxing environmental contaminants and enriching the blood. Applied topically, clay stimulates the flow of blood containing oxygen needed for cellular repair and thus speeds the healing process. Additionally, the powerful drawing power of clay's negative ionic charge, some as much as 33 times it molecular weight, makes clay baths both popular and highly effective in removing toxins

Recent studies of blood samples under high powered microscopes show what acidity can do to our blood. Blood cells tend to cluster and clump together and often the background is filled with parasites and nano crystal build-up. After six weeks of good nutrition and taking the clay internally the blood samples instead show a clear background and individual round cells surrounded by a glow, evidence that an alkaline pH has been restored.

Below are some blood samples that illustrate this progression: These are beginning slides of acidic blood samples showing the clustering of the blood cells. Acidity causes the cells to stick together and impedes the delivery of oxygen to the cells. The debris and lines in the background denote the presence of parasites and nano acid crystal lines and particles that can contribute to kidney and gall stones. 

Below: see progressive slides taken at 2 week intervals showing the progress of the blood cells becoming better defined and healthier.



After six weeks on clay and a healthy Vegan eating program, we have clearly defined blood cells. The glow around them indicates healthy oxygenated cells in an alkaline environment.


The renowned French natural healer, Raymond Dextreit, states, "Clay is particularly rich in certain diastases and enzymes. Some of these diastases, the oxidases, have the power of fixing free oxygen, which explains the purifying and enriching action of clay in the blood." [2]

All this being said not all clays are alike or suitable for healing purposes. For more information about the Criteria for Selecting a Quality Healing Clay go to the articles section of  Only nature can make clay. It cannot be replicated in laboratories or by pharmaceutical companies.
