Bentonite Clay Cleanses Your Body of Toxins
by Joy Mary
Bentonite has been used by Indians and natives for centuries to cure a variety of
diseases by detoxifying the body.
Bentonite is actually just natural clay from the ground. It is 61% silica but also
contains 18% aluminum, and small amounts of iron, sodium, and magnesium. It is
alkaline, with a pH of 8.3 to 9.1.
Bentonite works internally by attracting a variety of poisons from the gastrointestinal
tract. The Bentonite Clay has a negative charge while the toxins tend to have a
positive charge. Thus there is the attraction of the toxins to the clay. Once these are
absorbed, the body eliminates the clay and toxins and you are healthier.
Bentonite Clay can absorb any toxic substances imaginable: poisons, impurities,
harmful pesticides, bacteria, pathogens, and parasites. Bentonite will not be absorbed
by the body so it leaves no harmful side effects. As a colon cleanser, take from one
to three teaspoons of Bentonite powder (depending on your weight) and add it to
about eight ounces of liquid and thoroughly mix until the clay is completely combined
with the water.
Bentonite can also be used externally, to treat various skin problems and for detox
baths. Some people have successfully used Bentonite Clay to treat their skin rashes.
A skin eruption such as acne can be treated with a poultice of Bentonite Clay.
The recommended procedure for a detox bath is to add two to three ounces of
Bentonite clay to the water, mix it thoroughly, soak and enjoy. A poultice can be
prepared by adding one part clay to three parts water or until you reach desired
consistency. Then mix it thoroughly to an even paste and apply to the skin area.
Though a natural substance, a few warnings are still in order.
- Because of the presence of aluminum in Bentonite, someone who is aluminum
intolerant should use a substitute for colon cleansing.
- Bentonite Clay can also absorb some nutrients, so it is important to take it at
least one hour before or after a meal.
- Don't take Bentonite Clay and vitamins or supplements at the same time.
- Drink lots of water when taking Bentonite internally. This is very important.
- Bentonite should not be ingested alone. Instead, take Psyllium Hust or some
other high fiber substance so that the Bentonite keeps moving through and out
of the colon.
