Article: Myths About Internal Cleanses
by Perry A~ Arledge


  1. Cleanses are hard on the system.

  2. Cleanses taste horrible.

  3. Cleanses will have you attached to the toilet for a week or more.

  4. If you are not suffering, the cleanse is not working.

  5. You have to go on a liquid diet for a cleanse to work.

Not so says Perry A~, author of Calcium Bentonite Clay, Nature's Pathway to Healing. Clay cleanses are very gentle yet extremely effective at the same time. You can take clay on an empty stomach and you will NOT experience nausea, runs to the bathroom or adverse effects. Contrary to old beliefs about cleanses, you will find a clay cleanse so gentle you are not immediately aware of the advantages beyond a mere cleanse. Ideally, to dislodge the buildup of fecal matter in the lower colon take clay internally two to three times a day for two to three weeks. 2-3 ounces of liquid clay mixed at a ratio of 1 part of dry powder clay to 8 parts of water. For example; mix 1/4 cup of clay to 2 cups of water in a glass or plastic container and shake well. From this liquid mix drink 2-3 ounces 3 times a day for 21 days. Be sure and drink lots of water to flush out the toxins.

After a cleanse, the body will be able to more readily absorb the good nutrition from your supplements and the food you eat. Your skin tone and complexion will take on a healthy glow and most people report an increase in energy and less belching, flatulence and acidity problems. If you follow that with a colonic cleanse, you will be amazed at the release and how you will begin to feel.

In selecting a clay for internal cleanse use look for:

  1. A natural calcium Bentonite clay, pure and free of contaminants.

  2. A pH of 8.5 or above.

  3. A mineral analysis sheet.

  4. A Quality Control Lab report showing the clay falls within the safety guidelines.

  5. A Montmorillonite/Calcium Bentonite, from the Smectite family of clays.

  6. A green swelling clay that Absorbs and Adsorbs.

  7. A pure clay that it is odorless and tasteless.

  8. An all natural vs. processed clay.

  9. Professional packaging (no Ziploc bags or hand-written labels) with labels showing directions and ingredients.

  10. A non-gritty clay milled to a 325 screen mesh.

  11. A clay that expands to a 3 to 1 ratio in volume. 3 parts water to 1 part dry clay.

  12. A company that gives you direct contact information - a phone number, physical address and an e-mail address.

  13. A company available to answer questions about their clay.

  14. A reliable company that has been in business for several years.

  15. A clay that does not stain material.

  16. A clay from a subsurface type mine protected from the elements.

  17. A clay with an ionic charge of efficacy of at least 20 times its molecular weight. 

Clay, the gentle, effective cleanse. Now go enjoy that cleanse with no dread of the process.
