radiation cleansing properties of Bentonite Clay
by Duran Rivera
clay is known for many things, namely as a treatment for various
mineral deficiencies, infections and even gangrene, but it's
also becoming widely popular as an aid against various kinds of
radioactive damage and conditions. In its general uses, it can
be used as a bulk laxative and to flush out impurities from the
body due to its strong negatively charged ionic properties. It
has amazing topical benefits as well, treating acne, open
wounds, burns, and protecting against various rash inducing oils
found in poison ivy or poison oak. Bentonite clay has become a
very important natural resource for millions of people
throughout the world, especially as our exposures to radiation
have risen exponentially in this modern age.
Formed millions of years ago from the weathering of volcanic
ash, most often in the presence of water, bentonite clay has
developed into its present form by collecting various minerals
critical to life from limestone formations or slow cooling
temperatures which converted certain minerals to oxides easily
burned by the human metabolism. It was further refined by a
bountiful amount of plant life, carcasses and the hair of
prehistoric creatures. It has been utilized for its many
benefits by different indigenous tribes since prehistory. Some
tribes like the Blackfoot and the Sioux referred to it as "Ee-Wah-Kee"
or "The Mud That Heals."
Bentonite's uses against radiation have been recorded and noted
throughout history. It is said that Russian scientists coated
themselves with bentonite before donning radiation uniforms to
protect from radiation exposure. Studies by the U.S. army found
that bentonite is an effective treatment, amongst other things,
in exposure to chemical warfare. Radioactive material carries a
positive ionic charge and bentonite clay has negatively charged
ionic properties. It captures positively charged ions that you
can then wash off your body or flush out your system. Unlike
other clays, smectites (bentonites) can absorb and adsorb and
are also characterized by their expandable characteristics.
Bentonite adsorbs radiation from sources such as microwaves,
x-rays, laptops, cell phones, TVs, microwaved food, etc.
There are hundreds of different kinds of bentonite clay, but
amongst the most popular are Calcium Montmorillonite, Calcium
Bentonite, and French Green Clay (Montmorillonite). When
treating for radiation exposure, bentonite clay is used
internally and externally. Clay baths are taken repeatedly for
as long as the person can handle, usually from 20 minutes to
about an hour. Compresses would also be applied to key locations
of the body (targeting lymphatic system and primary organs).
