Clay - The Safe, Effective Detox
by Perry A~ Arledge
cell in our body excretes waste material, which becomes toxic
and poisonous to our bodies if it is allowed to build up faster
than it can be eliminated or filtered out of the body. The
most common symptoms of toxic buildup within the body are mental
dullness, aching-stiff joints, gas and bloat, high acidity,
digestive problems with the stomach and colon, acid reflux and
fatigue. Therefore, it is imperative to naturally detox to
rid yourself of the deleterious effects of impurities and
toxins. There is a lot of popular sharing of results of
clay users suggesting that Calcium Bentonite Clay therapy may be
an ideal detoxification treatment because it is safe and
effective. Clay has many healing abilities due to its
alkaline pH and high negative ionic charge, and it works on the
entire organism. Take control of your body by detoxing to
help regain and achieve the pinnacle of your health!
Alexander, one of the leading experts in detoxification and
dietary healing, succinctly states on her Web site:
legacy of 50 years exposure to persistent man-made chemicals combined
with the denigration of the food chain has increased our
susceptibility to chronic degenerative disease and cancer.
Reversal can only come about by resolving these primary
causes of disease. By releasing the toxic burden of the
body and restoring its nutritional status, we can change our
internal environment and achieve good health."
primary causes of disease is facilitated by proper nutrition,
exercise, and detoxing. Drinking plenty of water and
simple sweating helps to flush your system of toxins, but clay
therapy, which has been used for thousands of years by
indigenous people around the world, has passed the test of time
to be a superior natural detoxification method.
basically inert super charged minerals, and it gets its negative
electromagnetic energy charge from the thermo dynamic heat and
volcanic action that created it. When activated by water
the clay awakens with a strength that radiates throughout the
body, stimulating energy for the rebuilding and revitalization
of latent cells and starts a healing process. The body needs
this energy to restore harmonic balance essential to healthy
maintenance. In addition, this super power has the ability to
absorb harmful, toxic substances from within the body, tightly
bind them within the molecule, and carry them out of the body.
is a passage written by Michael Talbot, as quoted from Windows
of Light by Randall & Vicki Baer:
dramatic examples of the capacity of matter to self-organize.
As we saw in the incident related by Holden and Sanger, they can
also acquire and retain information-- for
example, their geometric structure-- and reproduce copies of
themselves containing the same information. Given that they
perform all these functions while remaining far more stable and
durable than DNA, Cairns-Smith believes that crystals make very
likely candidates as the most ancient progenitors of life.
However, to more fully establish his case, Cairns-Smith knew
that he had to find a crystal that possessed one further
quality, the ability to use the information it possesses to
interact with its environment..."
renowned chemist and researcher. A.G. Cairns-Smith, went on to
say, "Clays not only have the ability to grow and adsorb
other molecules, but they can then incorporate
the information from those molecules and
use it to alter and change themselves” (The
Origin of Life).
acts as a catalyst. A catalyst
is any substance that works to accelerate a
chemical reaction. For any process to occur, energy, known as
activation energy, is required. Without the help of a
catalyst the amount of
energy needed to spark a
particular reaction is high. When the catalyst
is present the activation energy is lowered, making the reaction
happen more efficiently. The catalyst
generally works by either changing the structure of a
molecule or by bonding to reactant molecules causing them to
combine, react and release a
product or energy.
absorbing toxins before they enter the bloodstream, clay reduces
the overload of toxins that the liver and kidneys normally have
to filter out. By eliminating the buildup of waste lodged
in the lower colon, clay allows the body to absorb more
nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Today, due to
the scientific studies and personal results, we are more aware
of the beneficial effects of the detoxification of our body’s
cells and the importance it plays in assisting the body’s
return to a state of equilibrium. The following is an excerpt
from Natasha Lee's article "Could Detoxification be the
Fountain of Youth?":
Alexis Carrel, of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research
performed an amazing experiment in the early 1900's. He
managed to sustain the life of cells from a chicken embryo by
immersing the cells in a solution containing all the nutrients
necessary for life and changing the solution daily. The cells
took up nutrients from the nutrient-rich broth and excreted
their wastes into the same solution. The only thing Dr. Carrel
did each day was discard the old solution and replace it with
fresh nutrient solution. The chicken cells lived for 29 years
until one night Dr. Carrel's assistant forgot to change the
polluted solution! We do not know how much longer the cell's
life could have been maintained. Dr. Carrel concluded at
the end of his experiment that the cell is actually immortal. It
is merely the fluid in which it floats which degenerates. He is
quoted saying ‘The cell is immortal. Renew this fluid at
intervals, give the cell something on which to feed and, so far
as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever.’ The
average chicken lives about 7 years. His detoxified, properly
nourished chicken cell lived for 29 years” (Years to Your
Carrel believed that time is not the real culprit in our aging
process, but the buildup of toxins unable to be eliminated from
the body through its natural cleansing process. This toxic
overload that gets stored in the body begins to have an adverse
effect on the healthy cells and the downward spiral of the
deterioration process is escalated.
work showed that a clean internal environment is the logical
solution to extending our lifeline. The real fountain of
youth can be achieved by merely keeping the body functioning
highly by detoxing, eating a nutritional and balanced diet,
drinking plenty of water, and staying flexible and limber with
Bentonite Clay is one of the safest, easiest, and least
expensive detoxing substances available today. Clay is a
non-evasive treatment, and when it is properly used, clay
treatments cause no harm. Rapid healing often results, such as a
noticeable reduction in pain, irritation, and inflammation, even
when many other methods have failed. Clay functions
Minerals that make up Bentonite clay (which the body
cannot absorb) work together to absorb heavy metals and other
toxins in the gut. Thus, clay taken internally, can help improve
intestinal health and keep the toxins from being absorbed into
The energy of clay stimulates the revitalization and
rebuilding of damaged cells and tissues.
Clay baths, poultices and topical applications, through
clay’s strong drawing powers, help your body detox through the
pores of skin. Through a pulsing action, clay will draw out
infections, gangrene, heavy metals and toxins.
Internal parasites are drawn to the clay and expelled
from the body.
Most clays are naturally alkaline and as a result,
balance the body’s pH and reduce over acidity.
Bentonite clay is the natural detoxing agent that can be used
internally, externally with poultices and full body
applications, and by taking detox clay baths" These are
highly beneficial methods for detoxification, especially for
cases of heavy metal poisoning and radiation buildup. So
consider releasing the toxic burden of the body inside and out
with a safe and effective Calcium Bentonite Clay detoxification
program. That being said, it is important to know
your clays and select a clean, pure clay from a reputable source
that provides lab testing and information on their product.

for Selecting a Quality Healing Clay."
