The Vital Healing Component in Bentonite Clay

in Nature contains all the powers of Nature. Everything is
made of one hidden stuff.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
When you think
about that you realize how true it is. All living things
are fed from the minerals (soils) of the earth either directly
or indirectly. Plants absorb minerals from the soil and
make them available to our bodies. One of the most
overlooked elements in clay is Silica; an element that is
essential to the existence of life.
1939, the Nobel Prize winner for chemistry, Prof. Adolf
Butenandt, proved that life cannot exist without Silica.
to his research conducted at Columbia University in 1972,
hormonal disturbances in the human organism are often due to a
calcium-magnesium imbalance. Several studies have shown
that silica can restore this delicate balance. Silica also
benefits the assimilation of phosphorous. Thus it may be
considered a catalyst in the use of other elements.
The Silica in
clay is what gives clays properties of nanocrystals.
Crystals are capable of memory and holding energy. Calcium
Bentonite Clay is an inert clay that is capable of chemical change.
Calcium Bentonite Clay communicates with the body and acts as a catalyst
that supports the body in healing itself by cleansing, detoxing,
stimulating circulation and balancing body pH. Calcium
Bentonite Clay has an electro-magnetic energy charge. In other
words, it assists the body in regaining equilibrium and thus the
normal flow of energy.
is found in blood, brain, kidneys, liver, lymph nodes, lungs,
muscle, and testes. The highest levels are found in the
connective tissues such as in the aorta, trachea, tendon, bone,
skin, hair, and nails. Therefore, it gives strength and
support to all the tissues of the body. Silica is the
dominant mineral in clay, so it stands to reason the silica in
clay creates many of the actions of silica such as, it is
responsible for the depositing of minerals into the bones,
especially calcium. It speeds up the healing of fractures
and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. For
osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the
body’s self-repair process. Silica plays a primary role
in many body functions and has a direct relationship to mineral
calcium in our body system leaches, our bones become brittle and
weak. Taking a calcium supplement alone cannot correct or
stop this bone deterioration because the body cannot assimilate
some calcium forms and make appropriate use of the calcium
without the presence of silica.
evidence shows that through a transmutation process, silica
is turned into calcium when it is needed. That is why
some scientists refer to silica as a precursor of calcium.
Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn
silica into calcium that the bones need.
House College Dictionary describes Bentonite rock as “a clay
formed by the decomposition of volcanic ash.” It
describes clay as “consisting essentially of hydrated
silicates of aluminum, regarded as the material from which the
human body was formed.”

aluminum, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, iron,
sodium, sulphur, carbon and 50-70 trace minerals.
is the dominate mineral in clays at between 40-50%. Knowing
the actions of Silica helps us understand how Calcium Bentonite
contributes to many healing actions in the body. Bentonite Clays
from the Smectite family of clays are the only clays that both
adsorb and absorb. As a source of natural Silica, Calcium
Bentonite Clay is nature’s own miracle cure, a catalyst that
helps the body heal itself.
