formed from ash spewed from a volcanic eruption which landed in
an inland sea or lake bed and evolved over millions of years.
Every piece of clay retains a considerable amount of energy from
the large and powerful magnetic entity of the Earth. Raymond
Dextreit says on the subject,
the properties to which we can attribute the effect of clay is
Not radioactivity as we know it. He says that clay is
radioactive to a degree but this radioactivity is generally
imperceptible to the testing apparatus used in laboratories at
present. Scientists differ widely as to the significance of the
radioactivity in clay. It seems that clay has, among other
properties, the ability to either stimulate a deficiency or
absorb an excess in the radioactivity of the body on which it is
applied. On an organism which has suffered and still
retains the radiations of radium or any other intensive
radioactive source, the radioactivity is first enhanced and then
absorbed. Clay could, in this way, ensure the protection
of an organism overexposed to atomic radiations.
Through energetic action clay transmits an extraordinary
strength to an organism and helps to rebuild vital potential
through liberation of the latent energy. It is a catalyst more
than an agent. As a catalyst, clay favors the
transformations and operations of synthesis, thus allowing
better use of the absorbed elements, i.e. vitamins and minerals
we take or get from the food we eat. As a powerful agent
of stimulation, transformation and transmission of energy, clay
stimulates energy and revitalizes the body
One can only marvel at what clay can do.
same teaspoon of clay can cure an obstinate carbuncle and

anemia?!” questioned Raymond Dextreit, author of Our Earth, Our Cure.
Well, it seems that clay is particularly rich in certain
diastases and enzymes. Some of these diastases, the
oxidases, have the power of fixing free oxygen, thus making it a
amazing abilities to adsorb and absorb make it one of the most
powerful methods of cleansing the body by detoxing. Michel
Abehsera, author of The Healing Clay, tells us that when
used internally, whether taken orally, anally or vaginally, clay
goes to the place where the harm is found. There it lodges,
perhaps for several days, until finally it draws out the toxins
or diseased tissue with its evacuation.
Clay has high alkaline pH. Acidity is the breeding ground for
disease. Clay brings pH into balance.
Clay is a natural analgesic. It immediately reduces or
eliminates pain when applied topically.
Clay stimulates lymphatic glands, blood flow and circulation. A
natural chelator and detoxifier, clay pulls toxins and
impurities. French homeopaths documented that a
system-wide detoxification effect occurs within seconds of
placing Montmorillonite-type clay in the mouth, which
demonstrates that the clay acts as a catalyst.
A recent article in NaturalNews.com (www.naturalnews.com/022674.html)
tells us that clay baths have become increasing popular as a
safe and effective means of detoxing heavy metals from the body
through the pores of the skin.
One of clay’s peculiarities is based on its physical-chemical domination.
From a thermodynamic point of view, clay cannot be the sole
source of the energy of the phenomena it produces. Clay’s
effect as a dynamic presence is far more significant than the
mere consideration of the substances it contains. It is much
more than its chemical analysis shows it to be. Jason Eaton (www.eytonsearth.org)
fact, I do not believe it is possible for a clay bath to
LITERALLY pull out toxins in the body; not to the extent that it
does. I believe that the clay reaction enables the body itself
to let go of the toxic waste accumulated, and the clay provides
the path to elimination.”
Louis Kervran, the French scientist, world-famous for his
provocative work on Biological Transmutations, writes about a
shrimp that lives in clay: “It
has been known for a long time that living organisms inhabit
clay without any organic supply of food from the outside.
The Niphargus shrimp lives in the clay of caves.
Experiments have shown that it grows normally in pure clay to
which nothing has been added. Research workers therefore
thought that the shrimp lived on clay and nothing but clay, an
impossibility according to the laws of biochemistry.
Actually, it cannot live thus in clay alone, but this clay
contains microorganisms which work for the shrimp, making
vitamins, various mineral products, nitrogen, phosphorous, and
Therefore clay is a live medium which helps generate and
Raymond Dextreit wrote he was certain of the antiseptic and
antibiotic powers of clay but it puzzled him. Clay does not act
specifically on one or several bacteria varieties; rather it
prevents their proliferation by reinforcing the defenses of the
organism. Thus again we see how clay brings the body into
In general, clay has remarkable resistance to chemical agents
and only the most energetic ones can attack it. As a
bacteria-absorbing agent it can render contaminated water
innocuous. The nutritionist Linda Clark mentions in her recent
book, The Best of Linda Clark, that a European doctor,
Meyer-Camberg, recommends clay for neutralizing poisons.
According to Dr. Meyer-Camberg, clay takes care of any bad
poisoning such as arsenic. It suffices to take 1
teaspoonful of clay mixed in a glass of water every hour for six
hours to be out of trouble.
According to information found at Shirley’s
Wellness Cafe (www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com),
myths about clay and the elements that make up a clay molecule
are rampant. One deals with aluminum. Clay is a
super stable compound. All of the elements that make up clay are
bound together and act as a whole.
silicates are crystalline compounds, usually made up of silicon,
aluminum and oxygen. They are tightly bound together.
As long as the aluminum is bound in this form, it poses no
health risk. The aluminum in clay is never in an isolated
form, and is not adsorbed into the body. This refers to
all metals in clay. They are in an oxide form tightly bound
Clay is interactive with each person’s
individual specific chemical makeup. It adapts to your needs.
As the Native American Indians said of clay,
has a wisdom of its own.”
From helping to prevent the proliferation of pathogenic germs
and parasites to aiding with rebuilding of healthy tissues and
cells, clay is a ‘living’
Perry A~ is the author of Living Clay: Nature’s
Own Miracle Cure and has been an ongoing student in the
study of Bentonite Clays since the early 1990’s.
It was then she first tried a green healing Calcium Bentonite
Clay that captured her fascination as to the amazing healing
potential of dirt. She has been an advocate for this clay
ever since. To read an excerpt from her book, please visit
An interesting excerpt from Living Clay Book:
Clay Bath Directions for Detoxifying
Pour up to 2 cups of powdered clay in the bathtub and then run
very hot water over the clay, as hot as it gets. Use a
whisk or your hand to stir the clay around and to help it
dissolve. When you've got about 3 inches of water in the tub
and the clay is dissolved, start adding cooler water until the
water reaches the desired temperature.
The bath should neither be too hot nor too cool, but should be
nice and warm, as warm as is comfortable. Bathing time depends
upon your condition, but can be anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes.
Please don't overdo it! If you stay in too long there
is a small possibility you could experience what is known as a
cleansing reaction and feel fatigue, headaches, muscle soreness,
etc. Be aware of your body’s
response to the first detox bath.
Another option is to take about a cup of extra thick liquid
Calcium Bentonite Clay and put it into the bath water. Others
have used a full quart and more. It is highly effective in
drawing out toxins. But too much, or too long exposure, may dry
out the skin. If so, when necessary, follow the bath with a
