|Article: What the people in Flint, MI should know about
by Perry A~
is a solution to the Flint River disaster.
An easy, inexpensive, safe, efficient, and non-invasive
solution the Flint city and state officials are probably over
looking. Bentonite Clay! There is now enough research to provide
the basis for the use of clay minerals as low-cost, non-toxic
adsorbents for the removal of waste proteins, biological toxins,
antibiotics, and biological entities
such as viruses from water. Clays can further act as
scavengers for chemical used in certain waste water treatment in
order to remove these after the treatment is complete. In
addition, the adsorption of heavy metal ions by clay minerals is
a complex process, reflecting their strong tendency to form co-valent
bonds to capture and hold thus its reputation for a strong
detoxification method. 
with any disaster effecting thousands of people, panic ensues.
Committees are appointed to look into solutions followed
by who is at fault and who is financially responsible and what
long range infrastructures are needed to return the city to safe
drinking water. Like molasses committees tend to stray and take
a long time in coming to a decision before action can take
responders are the first to take action to provide safe drinking
water to the people in this situation. Pharmaceutical companies
come to offer their expensive, invasive, medical solution to
removing the lead contamination.
Often over looked are other successful detoxing methods.
One proven effective method is detoxing with Bentonite Clay.
reasons Bentonite clay is an effective detoxing agent for
removing Heavy metals from the body.
Bentonite clay is an extremely strong electromagnetic detoxifier that captures heavy metals, bad bacteria, viruses, chemicals and poisons and takes them out of the body.
Taking a therapeutic clay bath, lasting anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes is one of the most effective methods to help assist the body in the elimination of toxic substances.
Bentonite clay as a catalyst provides activation energy to the body to help the body overcome the drain caused by infections and diseases that leave the body’s immune system in a weakened state and susceptible to plethora of diseases and ailments. 
Bentonite clay’s high pH is instrumental returning the body to balance in support of a compromised immune system.
Clay stimulates a deficient organ and helps the restoration of the failing function. 
a liquid Bentonite clay internally it acts as a cleansing agent
eliminating all noxious substances from the mouth south
expelling them with the feces. Once the toxins are absorbed into
the bloodstream any that are not eliminated by the kidneys and
liver are stored in the soft tissues and joints of the body.
There overtime they build up and play havoc with the
body’s immune system. This is where clays strong negative
ionic drawing power is used through a serious of clay baths to
pull these toxins out through the pores of the skin.
The power of
clay baths are described in this study below.
Jang has seen many of her young autistic patients improving so
much on the clay that she goes as far as to say that the clay
works even better than the TD DMPS (transdermal
dimercaptopropane sulfonate) in chelation. “So far, I have put
a huge number of patients on these clay baths, and the levels of
the heavy metals — mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum and
cadmium — have come down dramatically. I follow the
progress with 6 hour DMSA challenge urine test from Doctor’s
Data. One particular patient had very high levels of mercury and
levels of lead that were off the charts. In 3 months of twice
weekly clay baths, the lead came down dramatically and the
mercury disappeared.” (Miriam Jang. Article, Breakthroughs
In Autism, 2009) 
look at the pros and con of IV EDTA (Chelation vs Bentonite Clay
EDTA (ethylenediamine-tetraacetic acid) Chelation:
patient goes to a medical facility, sits in the lounge chair
and one of the personnel starts the IV drip by inserting the
needle in hand or arm. They time the drip to last from three
to four hours.
health practitioners recommend two or three treatments a
week until 10 to 30 infusions are completed. The number of
treatments is usually proportional to the original problem.
Chealations run. $115 to $150 per treatment so you are
looking at $1,150.00 to $4,500.00.
For adults1 cup of Bentonite clay powder is
liquefied with water in a blender and added to the bath water.
Take 2 thirty minute baths per week for 3 months.
Taking Clay internally captures freshly ingested
toxins and as a catalyst it cleanses and enriches red blood
It is more effective, non-invasive, faster and
inexpensive and safe solution to chelating high levels of lead
from the body and it can be self administered.
Clay baths have been safely used for centuries and
only provide benefits.
A 40 pound container of clay will provide 80 clay
baths, enough for two people to detox at only $475.00 total
From successful users:
Baths Detox Lead in 3 yr. old Boy
3 year old son was diagnosed with high levels of lead in his
blood - 7.3. The doctors wanted to put him on drugs and
intravenous chelation. I had heard about Calcium Bentonite Clay
for detoxing and wanted to try it first. I gave him 2 clay baths
a week using 1 cup of clay in each bath for 3 months. My son
calls them chocolate milk baths. We went back for the check up
in 3 months and the doctor came in and asked “What have you
been doing?” I asked what do you mean? He said there was no
sign of the lead in your son and we want to know what you did. I
told him about the clay baths. I was giving him a little liquid
clay, 1 Tablespoon at night for acid reflux and that is all we
did. After a few
baths my son started asking for chocolate milk baths. – Ben H.
Lowers One-Year- Olds Lead Levels
clay has been such a blessing to us. When our daughter was 12
months old, we took her to holistic practice for a checkup. They
did a routine hair analysis on her and found that she had lead
in her system. We immediately started to give her clay
baths, 3 times a week, for 2.5 – 3 months. Additionally, we
gave her 1 tsp of hydrated clay with her food, 1 time a day,
every day for 2 months. We then had her blood tested. Lead
levels greater than 10 micrograms/dL are considered abnormal,
according to the CDC. Our daughter’s test results came
back at 2 mcg/dL, out of a normal range of 0 – 9. We
will continue to give her the clay as we had been doing to
completely remove the lead from her system, but we are very
relieved her levels are getting closer to zero, and that we
didn’t have to go the route of intrusive chelation treatments.
you have high levels of toxins in your system consider
detoxifying with Bentonite Clay.
