Clay Bath Therapy
Undoubtedly we live in a toxic world. Your skin is exposed to many foreign substances and man-made chemicals.
Our bodies are continuously in the process of an internal cleansing and sometimes store excess toxins in our skin.
There is a safe, effective and powerful way to detoxify by immersing yourself in a clay bath in the
comfort of your home. Relax and let any worries, aches and pains dissolve
away as you detox naturally with clay from Mother Earth.
Not just any clay will do!
It is of primary importance to use the best clay for optimum results. There are hundreds
of clays on the market today and each one has a different analyses. They range
from common health store brands to exotically branded and priced green and rose clays. Some brands of clay, including those
at health food stores, may contain chemical emulsifiers, adjuncts, or dyes so it is a good idea to read the clay product label carefully.
Because there are many clay attributes such as pH, grain size, type of clay and chemical composition that determine
effectiveness to pull out toxic metals and chemicals, careful selection of your bath clay is important.
Premium Bath Clays have these Qualities:
- Clay originates from a clean unadulterated source
- No adjuncts or chemicals are added to the final product
- Natural milled clay is best. Not heated or bleached as this can ruin the clay's healing properties
- Calcium Bentonite clays are the best with Montmorillonite belonging to that group
- The finer the particulates of the clay the better
- High persistent negative ionic charge of the clay will have the greatest ability to detox just like a magnet attracting metal filings
- Clays having a moderate alkaline pH of 8.0 - 8.5 are best because of maximum effectiveness
- Macro balanced 55 plus ionic, colloidal trace elements, including silica, magnesium, and zinc
Premium Montmorillonite clay with a high negative ionic charge has been shown to be able to literally
pull pollutants out like a magnet, getting rid of years of toxic accumulation
in just one bath. Detoxification symptoms are less than from internal chelation
methods, and results can happen much more quickly. Clay baths have been
scientifically proven to release toxic metals and chemicals from the body, and are affordable to take them.

Note from Shirley
I use the
in my drinking water everyday and also add it to my dog's food and drinking water. I sprinkle one or two tablespoons of calcium
montmorillonite clay into a quart of alkaline ionized water. Unlike the pascalite, Terramin clay is not gritty. It is pretty tasteless.
Clay has done wonders for my health. I also add clay to my bath water. I use
Terrabathe Soaking Clay and use about 3 to 5 cups in my bath water. To avoid creating clumps,
I sprinkle clay over the hot water and let it stand without
steering. Within 5 minutes or so, the clay will have dissolved into the water
and sank at the bottom. Steering clay in water before it has a chance to dissolves
on its own will inevitably create clumps which will be more difficult to dissolve.
Medicinal Clay Bath treatment
by Lauana Lei
"A few years ago, I was diagnosed with heavy metal and chemical
poisoning. Among the many toxic substances in my body, mercury from
the fillings in my teeth was a major culprit. Having neither health
insurance nor the money to pay for these expensive treatments, I
began searching for alternative ways to eliminate these poisons--a
major cause of immune system breakdown--and thus, the source of
various diseases. Eventually, my search led me to a book, Using
Energy to Heal, by Wendell Hoffman. Through his own research, Hoffman
found that a special bentonite (a very fine volcanic clay) used
in a bath can actually draw out toxic chemicals through the pores
of the skin. After many experiments, he concluded that optimum
results are obtained by immersing oneself in a tub of very warm
water mixed with a special bentonite clay for exactly 20 minutes!"
Specially formulated clay baths
have been shown to be able to literally pull pollutants out like a magnet, getting rid of years
of toxic accumulation in just one bath. Detoxification symptoms
are less than from internal chelation methods, and results can happen
much more quickly. These clay baths have been scientifically proven
to release toxic metals and chemicals from the body, and they are
so inexpensive that anyone can afford to take them.
Protect yourself from Pharmaceuticals in your Water with Calcium Bentonite Clay
Armed with the proper information, theres no reason to fear the latest news
about toxins and pharmaceutical drugs being found in your water. Not to say that this
news isn't alarming. Measures must be taken to remove these harmful substances
from our eco-system. But until the day that dream becomes a reality, you can
protect yourself and your loved ones with calcium bentonite clay. Taken internally,
calcium bentonite clay safely removes toxins from your system.
How does Bentonite clay work?
Bentonite clay carries a uniquely strong negative ionic charge which causes
it to magnetically attract any substance with a positive ionic charge
(i.e., bacteria, toxins, metals, etc.). These substances are both adsorbed (sticking
to the outside like Velcro) and absorbed (drawn inside) by the clay molecules.
Your body doesn't digest clay, so the clay passes through your system, collecting
the toxins, and removing them as the clay is eliminated. Its like a little
internal vacuum cleaner. In his book The Clay Cure, Ran Knishinsky states it
The clay's immediate action upon the body is directly on the digestive channel.
This involves the clay actually binding with the toxic substances and removing
them from the body with the stool. It performs this job with every kind of toxin,
including those from the environment, such as heavy metals, and those that occur
naturally as by-products of the body's own health processes, such as metabolic
toxins. It's hard to believe that the body produces its own toxins, but that
may happen as a result of stress, inefficient metabolism, or the proliferation
of free radicals. The body has no problem ridding itself of the clay. Don't
worry about a tiny brick house being built in the middle of your colon. The
clay assists the body's elimination process by acting as a bulking agent, similar
to psyllium fiber, sweeping out the old matter that doesn't need to be there.
It is not digested in the same manner as food as it passes through the alimentary
canal. Instead, it stimulates intestinal peristalsis, the muscular contractions
that move food and stool through the bowels. The clay and the adsorbed toxins
are both eliminated together; this keeps the toxins from being reabsorbed into
the bloodstream. Clay works on the entire organism. No one part of the body
is left untouched by its healing energies. I don't know of another supplement
that is quite as capable as clay of producing such a wide range of positive reactions."

How do we use the Bentonite clay?
In this day and age, theres virtually no way to isolate yourself from the toxins
that surround us. In our air, in our food, in the ground beneath our feet,
obviously now in our water, the contaminants abound. However, with Bentonite
clay, you can keep yourself healthy and vibrant.
Nature's own Miracle Cure
Perry A~, author of Living Clay: Natures Own Miracle Cure, suggests the
following protocol to keep yourself internally cleansed. First, clay must be
taken internally. You can either eat hydrated clay paste or drink liquefied
clay. A good Bentonite clay will be very smooth and creamy and have virtually
no taste. One to two tablespoons of hydrated clay daily is the recommend amount
for adults. If youre drinking liquefied clay, start with one to two ounces
twice a day made with 1 part of dry powder calcium Bentonite clay to 8 parts
Perry A~ also recommends taking clay baths twice
a week. Clay baths help keep your body cleansed by pulling toxins through the
pores. To prepare a clay bath, scatter about 2 cups of Bentonite clay powder
into the bath water as its running, and use your hands to swish away any lumps
that might form. Or you can simply add 4 cups or more of liquefied Bentonite
clay to your bath. A clay bath should last ideally between 15-20 minutes in
extremely hot water and longer in a less hot bath. Submerge as much of your
body as possible during the bath. The more clay that is used in the therapy,
the more powerful the response.
Which clay should we use?
According to Jason Eaton (www.EytonsEarth.org) the best healing clay is a natural
clay that has not been processed (heated or bleached). The cleaning process
removes many of the healing qualities of the clay. You want a raw, clean, natural,
swelling clay (one that expands when mixed with water). Perry A~ recommends
using natural calcium Bentonite clay due to its high pH and uniquely strong
adsorption and absorption abilities. It's best to choose a fine-milled clay,
preferably one milled to 325 mesh. This ensures that once the clay is hydrated
or liquefied, it will not be gritty. Also, when choosing a company from which
to purchase your clay, make certain they can provide a chemical analysis of
their clay, along with lab testing to prove its purity. If they can't or won't
provide such documents, you should look elsewhere.
Time to Detox
There are now over sixty five thousand hazardous chemicals
being used in commercial production in the United States, with new chemicals
being tested in the U.S. at a rate of more than 6,000 per week. I believe that
future generations will look back on our times with a mixture of shock and amazement,
at how we seem to have abandoned all common sense in favor of these "high technology
breakthroughs". It's time to detoxify...You will feel better, live longer, and be healthier!
Clay Cure by Ran Knishinsky
"Naturally absorbent and extremely gentle on the system, clay can treat ailments
affecting digestion, circulation, menstruation, and the liver, skin, and prostate.
Clay also remedies symptoms of arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, gum diseases,
and migraines. The Clay Cure contains complete and up-to-date information on
choosing the appropriate type and form of clay, how and when to take it for
your specific complaint, the science and history of ingesting clay, and the
value of minerals contained in the many varieties of clay. "
Ran Knishinsky says that he eats clay everyday, that it is part of his diet.
He never skip a day without eating clay. On page 95 suggests the following :
infants: 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon (in a bottle), Small frame: one teaspoon, Medium
frame: one heaping teaspoon, Large frame: one tablespoon.
Clay provides an impressive assortment of minerals, including calcium, iron,
magnesium, potassium, sulfur, manganese, and silica as well as trace elementsthose
appearing in very tiny amounts. Without the basic minerals, life cannot exist;
without the trace minerals, major deficiencies will develop. The lack of either
will make it impossible for the body to maintain good health.
