You Really SHOULD Be Using Calcium Bentonite Clay!

 

I’ve done several posts about using  triple-swelling calcium bentonite clay and, if you have never used it as a self-help health aid, you’re really missing out. It has so many uses and benefits I think every household should have some on hand. I’ve put together some of the testimonials I’ve received from being on Perry Arledge’s mailing list (she used to offer free seminars on working with clay and is a real expert in the field) to help convince you to give it a try. It really IS amazing what working with this special clay can help with health-wise!

You can use it internally, externally, on your kids, your pet, your garden and more…..

 

13 Year Illness Gone After A Month On Clay

I am turning 25 in just a few days and have been taking the clay internally three times a day for a month now. I have been sick on and off for 13 years and the traditional doctors could never find a cure for me. I had just accepted that I had a sickly body and a weak immune system. I had bald spots and began fainting at the age of 12, then at 20 I became nauseous all of the time. When I graduated from college, I was so sick that I needed to take some time off before obtaining my masters degree. I began researching different ways to detoxify my body. I started getting colonics, bought an infrared sauna, and eating raw food. But it was only when I started drinking a Calcium Bentonite clay that I started feeling like a normal human being for the first time in 13 years!!! After 3 weeks, I had an energy surge. I started wanting to do things I hadn’t wanted to do in a long, long time…simple things like take a hike with my family. This clay has given me back my passion to live my life to the fullest. Before the clay, I was sick, exhausted, and depressed. Now, I feel alive! People are even saying how good my skin looks! Like I have a glow!! I will, without a doubt, be a lifelong customer. Anytime I have any questions, I just call Perry A. and she answers my calls directly and with such kindness and grace. This clay truly saved my life.

Cat Tumors Disappear with Clay

This summer I participated in one of your teleseminars and submitted a question about whether the clay could heal the large (cancerous-looking) bleeding tumor on my cat’s tail.   When the vet shaved it, it looked like a rotten potato attached to his tail –much bigger than his actual tail, so it could not be removed – so the only thing they could offer was amputation.  Well I did not want to do that unless it meant life or death and there were absolutely no other options, so I started using the clay in the meantime just to stop the messy bleeding.

Well, long story short, my cat cooperated well with me applying the clay and it really helped stop the bleeding.  However, in time an oozing hole developed where the bleeding used to be.  I kept that hole packed with clay, and within an incredibly short time the entire huge tumor had just melted away.  The hole is gone now, there is just a tiny bump left that I can feel at this point.  I continue to apply the clay and will do so until there is no hint anything left but his beautiful tail.  Although my cat was never sick from this, he was acting rather old and depressed, but now he has the energy of a kitten again.

I gave a co-worker a small jar of clay for the same purpose as her cat also had a VERY large tumor on its neck. When I checked back last week, she said her cat’s tumor had completely dissolved and was in fact also completely gone!

For both these cats, the vets had no treatments other than risky or disfiguring surgery with no guarantees.  I am so glad that I had already purchased the clay for some other reason I can’t even remember. I plan to start using it more diligently to improve my health and also the more difficult to treat problem my other cat has with sinus infection and gum irritation.  Thanks so much for helping spread the miracle.  We are ALL so very grateful!!!

Gardening With Clay

I had horrific tomato plants full of psyllid nymphs and cucumbers not doing too well.
I have powdered my plants on March 1st and I can’t see any psyllid anymore and cucumbers are looking okay.

On March 2nd I have powdered carrots, leeks, beetroot with clay, as they had rust.
As per today March 22nd,  they all are looking good. My Chicory Witloof has got outside leaves rotting so powdered with clay and 3 days ago still had to get rid of wilting leaves, whether the rotting had started before I sprayed and needs longer to stop the process, I don’t know???

All still needs more observation for longer, but sounds good. I took a plastic jar, opened the lid and drilled holes from inside out and I just shake it. It uses a lot of clay and as I have a very cheap source for gardening…whether to put less clay would work might as well? All experimental.

Clay expert Perry A~’s note:  When preparing garden soil mix or potting soil mix, add a generous handful for pots and much more for beds and mix in well.  Plants will grow faster, healthier, with hardy blooms.  It will kick booty on sandy loam non-clay soils.  Not for acid loving plants

Testimonial About Liver Flukes 

I have been having some pain in my upper stomach all the way down to the pelvis area (clearly my gastro system).  What is interesting is that, like you said, the liquid clay will remove parasites.  Well… after several days of 2 oz 2x day and lots of distilled water with lemon, I have had at least 4 bowel movements containing clearly visible organisms that appear to be Liver Fluke parasites.  After that my pain went away.

Constipated Cat

I did as you suggested, and simply increased the amount of hydrated clay
I mixed 11 year old cats canned food. Tremendous difference! Big nicely formed
‘tootsie  rolls’ two days in a row, and no more vomit. The clay was all it
took. Her energy is way up. A wild ‘bush bunny’ racing around the house!

Stomach Ulcers and Gall Bladder

I just read the book on clay by Perry A~, even read it to my husband, who has frequent episodes of gastric distress from an ulcer. We decided to give clay a try, the next time he had a problem, I gave 2 oz. to him. His problem resolved within moments, to our great relief. Then, a few nights ago, I ate more greasy food than I should have.  I had my gall bladder removed several years, and the doctor told me to go easy on fried foods.  It’s not usually a problem, since I eat very little fried foods.  When I overdo the greasy foods (which has only happened a few times!) I can hardly move for the horrible abdominal pain.  Well, after the success with my husband, as soon as I began to feel discomfort in my lower abdominal region, I decided to try a swig of the clay solution, too, and very shortly, no more discomfort! – Jo Ann A.

Teacher Notices Change after Autistic Child’s First Detox Bath

As a parent of a child affected by autism – I will try anything (safe) to help my son. I figured I’d give clay a try. Oh my goodness – the changes have been incredible! A few days after my son’s first detox bath his teacher asked me if I gave him a “speech pill”! I’m sure you could imagine my excitement.

I personally know the cost of trying to heal a child and when you find something that works, it’s just an incredible feeling. Again I’m just so thankful I was turned onto this product. Thank you for providing help to our children!!!! Have a beautiful day! – Anna W.

Periodontal Disease

I had periodontal disease with several #8 pockets a year ago. In Oct. of 2011, I started brushing with the dry Living Clay twice a day and at night packing those areas with the clay. At my last dental check-up I now have #4 pockets and healthy gums. He also said my teeth were very nice and white!! So happy with this clay. – Cindy P.

Disc Bulge Problem in Back

I have a disc bulge in my lower back and sacroiliitis…One day I had spent five hours in the yard raking and mulching. When I came in I could barely move: sitting, standing and moving from either position were extremely painful. This is typical of my condition. I had Living Clay prepared, but hadn’t used any yet. I took two ounces and ten minutes later, the pain was GONE. I felt fine the rest of the evening. I was stiff when I woke up in the morning and took two more ounces. I had no pain the rest of the day. Typically pain like I had that evening would have lasted at least a week and may have even caused me to miss that following day of work. I am amazed at the power of this product. -Dawn S.

Constant Diarrhea

In October 2016, I started to have pretty well constant diarrhea. Saw my GP (Australian name for a non specialist MD.) and she put me on various medications with zero results.
She went on holidays and I saw another GP. She took me off all medications, to see what would happen. Went on unabated and needed a colonoscopy. Then I remembered the clay.

I started to take liquid clay, 3-4 oz, 3 times a day and used hydrated clay on relevant areas, in early February 2017. The diarrhea stopped completely in one and a half days, never to return, and it is now April! Never had the colonoscopy.

I did however have a severe detox reaction, with beetroot red swollen glands under my armpits, so I put clay packs there as well and they too are now history.

PERSONAL NOTE: The part about the swollen glands reminds me of my own experience working with clay. I did the 21 day 3 times a day protocol and started feeling painful little lumps forming under the skin in my armpits, but didn’t really equate it to the clay until I upped the dose as given in the directions when dealing with more serious/long-standing conditions and that seemed to be too much for my body to handle fairly comfortably. The lumps rose to the surface and began oozing pus, with more lumps forming as others would be getting better. 

Not a fun or comfortable experience, to say the least, especially since it was the middle of summer when armpits are more prone to get sweaty. I stopped using the clay for awhile and it actually took several months before things started easing up. But I’ve had a number of health issues and a low level infection and congested lymph for years, so I’m sure that’s part of why I had such an extreme reaction. Even with other types of cleansing and detoxing I’d done, it was like the clay was the only thing that reached things at a deeper level that had been accumulating for a long time. The one good thing is the experience showed me how truly powerful using the clay can be.

FYI, the armpits (and groin) are major areas where lymph collects, so I think that’s why I had the reaction there. But I couldn’t understand why my left armpit was affected so much more than my right one, until I happened to read somewhere that, for some reason, the body naturally has a much greater percentage of lymph nodes and activity there than on the right-side. I’d never realized that before!

Also, if you plan on using the clay for detoxing baths, I highly recommend ordering from Even Better Now for 100% pure sodium bentonite clay, which has the highest cation exchange capacity of any bathing clay tested on the market. It is hypoallergenic and contains no excipients or fillers, and is free of bacteria, viruses, molds or yeasts, and easily disperses in water, with virtually no clumping. Unlike other bathing clays, EBN® Cleansing Clay can be safely rinsed down the drain, with no drain guards or special cleaning or clay dissolving agents required. 

p. s. The above testimonials I listed are just a few I’ve received by being on Perry A’s mailing list. She no longer offers the free webinars on using clay and sold her company, but you can check out her archive of information and sign up to get on her mailing list at the bottom of the site she still hosts. She also offers a books and if you end up using her archive or getting on her list, I highly recommend donating a little something to help her defray the cost of the great wealth of information she is offering to people for free.

Natural Remedies For Eliminating Parasites

 

I’ve been meaning to publish this ever since I finally got around to posting the information awhile back about how common a problem parasites are, but am just now doing it. Hopefully you’ll find this helpful, and I will likely be adding to it in the future…..

NATURAL Ways for removing PARASITES

 Ridding the body of parasites can sometimes be a long, involved process, and a number of different protocols may be called for. Diet is certainly one way to help address the issue. Certified nutrition specialist Ann Louise Gittleman recommends an “anti-parasite” diet where your daily intake of food is composed of 25% fat, mainly in the form of expeller-pressed oils high in EFAs.

The oils lubricate the gastro-intestinal tract and serve as a carrier for vitamin A, which appears to increase resistance to tissue penetration by parasitic larvae. Proteins, which are vital for strengthening and rebuilding tissue and enhancing immunity, would account for another 25% of what you eat. And the remaining 50% would come from complex carbohydrates, although beans, peas, and other legumes, as well as nuts and seeds, should supposedly be avoided because they can cause flatulence and irritate the digestive tract.

It’s also important to curtail the consumption of refined sugar, since it not only serves to suppress the immune system, but is also the “food of choice” for many parasites. Gittleman recommends eliminating dairy products and gluten-containing foods like wheat, rye, oats and barley, as well. Heavy intake of raw fruits and vegetables should be limited, and cold or iced foods should be avoided, since they cause the intestine to contract and hold in toxins, rather than release them. Other food related guidelines or remedies for parasites include eating papaya, pumpkin and lemon seeds, and using the green black walnut hulls, wormwood, and ground cloves combination mentioned further down in this post. Fungal Defense™ would also be helpful in ridding the body of parasites.

Other herbs and supplements to consider using:

Burdock Root – a natural blood purifier and detoxifier; helps the body maintain healthy skin and nourishes the urinary and respiratory systems; stimulates the digestive and immune systems, restores liver and gallbladder function; supports joint and skeletal tissues, removes accumulations and deposits around the joint and aids in the elimination of excess fluid, uric acid and toxins; has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Cascara Sagrada – helps relieve constipation; nutritionally supports the stomach, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder; is cleansing and nourishing to the colon; also known to assist digestion and helps the body to eliminate worms and parasites.

Garlic – a natural antibiotic and fungicide that helps the body rid itself of parasites and heavy metals; provides nourishment for the circulatory, immune and urinary systems; supports normal circulation and blood pressure, stomach tissue, and aids the body’s natural ability to resist disease. Use either fresh or a supplement with high allicin content.

Golden Seal – nourishes the liver, glandular and respiratory systems and helps cleanse the system of foreign organisms.

Male Fernhelps the body get rid of tapeworms.

Parsley – valued as a blood builder, cleanser and has pressure-regulating properties; helps prevent the multiplication of tumor cells, expels worms, relieves gas, stimulates normal digestive activity and freshens the breath; supports bladder, kidney, liver, lung, stomach and thyroid function; contains more vitamin C by weight than an orange.

Sennaassists in expelling waste from the intestines and kills worms.

Paratrex®a supplement from GHC with a unique formula designed to help the body detoxify and flush the intestinal tract; it’s also a powerful aid in fighting against an invasion of harmful organisms

Latero-Flora™ – another supplement from GHC that can be used in conjunction with Paratrex® to help the body fend off parasites

That covers some of the dietary options available for dealing with parasites. As far as internal cleansing goes, certainly cleaning out the colon, as well as the liver and gallbladder, are key to ridding the body of many free-loading microorganisms, so be sure to read the Self-help Health posts on those topics. Also refer to the post on candida. And any protocol that helps strengthen and purify the body overall, like the Salt Water Flush, would be supportive.

Parasites are anaerobic, so water that is ozonated, and colon cleansers, like Colosan, and Oxy-powder, that release oxygen into the intestines, are other possible options. Several of the companies (Global Healing Center, and EvenBetterNow) listed on the Links page of my website carry products and kits aimed at eliminating unfriendly microorganisms

And a simple recipe involving raw honey and apple cider vinegar is said to help rid the body of parasites. I haven’t used this yet, but these two ingredients are two of the absolute best self-help health aids around and provide relief for all sorts of issues, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it at least helps get parasites out of your system. And it’s certainly simple enough to use/do….just mix 1 TBS raw honey (manuka would be best) with 1 TBS ACV in a glass of (structured) water and drink it down!

The thing to remember with parasites is they have a hard time infecting a healthy body, so anything that strengthens the system overall is going to help ward off or get rid of these unfriendly invaders. The best thing is to follow the old saying “an ounce of prevention….. ” Making sure you maintain proper pH balance is a major step in creating an inner terrain that is inhospitable to infestation by parasites. Do little things, like adding cloves to certain recipes/foods or use it to spice up your coffee or tea. Drink pure unsweetened cranberry juice (cut with some water), or 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, on a daily basis as a preventative measure.

Wash produce in 1 tsp. of hydrogen peroxide per gallon of water, or use Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds, Orange TKO (naturalnewsstore.com), or one of the all-natural vegetable washes now available, to help remove parasites from fruits and vegetables.  And did you know that certain parasites can live for as long as 2 wks. under your fingernails, just waiting to gain access to your body? So something as simple as keeping your nails short and washing your hands thoroughly after gardening, petting animals, etc. can make a big difference.

(For more information on dealing with parasites and products to help with the issue, check out Global Healing; you may also want to read the book Guess What Came to Dinner: Parasites and Your Health, by Ann Louise Gittleman, M. S., and/or The Cure for All Diseases, by Dr. Hulda Clark.) And this article from PaleoHacks mentions a couple of remedies I hadn’t heard of before.

Here’s more on treatment options from  The Health Wyze Report :
If a conventional doctor believes that you have parasites, he will prescribe you an anti-parasitic pharmaceutical.  These pharmaceuticals are always toxic, for it is their toxicity that kills parasites.  Thus, swelling of the lymph nodes, hands and feet are common, whilst vision problems, lack of coordination, and convulsions can also occur.  Diarrhea is typical with these drugs.
 These are the most commonly used natural substances for eliminating parasitic infections:
  • Black Walnut Hulls
  • Wormwood (from the Artemisia shrub)
  • Common Cloves (from the clove tree)
  • Pumpkin Seeds, or Pumpkin Seed Oil Capsules
  • Garlic
  • Neem (Do not take neem if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, because it can work as a contraceptive.)
  • Thyme leaf and seed
  • Marshmallow root
  • Diatomaceous Earth
  • Blends of the above ingredients, with marketing names like ‘Para-Clear’.

We would not recommend choosing one of the corporate formulas, since they are usually overpriced and formulated with low concentrations.  Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to examine each formula, and evaluate them.

Diatomaceous Earth (be sure to read the Self-help Health post for more info) is the best natural anti-parasitic medication. Add DE to your diet to detox parasites that can contribute to food intolerance, nausea, bowel discomfort, pain, itching, asthma, sinus infections, Morgellon’s disease, and a host of other allergic-type reactions.

DE also helps eliminate mercury, cadmium, lead and other heavy metals; removes poisons from chemtrails, radiation and may alleviate the effects of GMOs. DE possesses antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.

It is actually an all-natural pesticide which does not harm humans or pets.  It is believed to kill insects, worms and parasites by dehydrating them.  When used on ants, it usually takes around 20 minutes before they are all dead.  One tablespoon of diatomaceaous earth taken by an adult once a day for seven days is believed to be extremely effective at killing all parasites.

If this is going to be given to children, bear in mind that height is a better indicator of the size of their G.I. tract than their weight.  Thus, a child who is 4 feet tall should take 2 teaspoons, and a child who is 2 feet tall should take 1 teaspoon.  If you take this route, we advise you to only buy food grade.  Industrial DE is used for swimming pool filters, but it has been chemically treated, and this type is not safe to eat.  Try to avoid rubbing it onto your hands, as it can have a drying effect upon the skin.

Diatomaceous Earth contains heavy metals as part of its mineral content, but it also contains the natural antidote, selenium, which allows otherwise accumulative heavy metals to be flushed from the body.  Therefore, it is not really a health concern despite the presence of aluminum and lead.  We recommend taking selenium supplements for a week after discontinuing this treatment to ensure that the body thoroughly flushes all of the heavy metals.  Our research indicates that DE is the best overall parasite treatment for humans, because it should likewise kill all microscopic blood-born parasites as well.  When using it, be sure to drink plenty of fluids, because it will dehydrate a person considerably.

Wormwood and black walnut hulls are known to kill adult worms, while cloves kill worm eggs.  Some people use this trio for treating parasites, instead of diatomaceous earth.  It is recommended that you take 500 mg. of wormwood and black walnut hulls, while taking 1/2 teaspoon of cloves daily for around 14 days.  All other herbs mentioned are used in addition to these two core protocols.

As parasites die, they release toxins through their excrement, and from rotting.  The most common parasites, the worm type, attempt to escape by burrowing deeper into the intestines, which can cause sharp pains and cramps.  Even when dead, the body is still burdened with the task of flushing them out.  This whole process can initially make the person feel sicker than before he started the cleanse, but this is only temporary, and it is a sign that the cleanse is working.  While fatigue and grogginess are also to be expected, normal life may be continued, and diarrhea should not occur.  Ensure that you are eating a good, wholesome diet throughout the cleanse to ensure that your immune system is at its strongest.  After the cleanse, you should feel better, have more energy, and experience sickness less often.

Also, I’ve been experimenting with taking bentonite clay in liquid form to help with candida and other things. It seems like it’s been helping and I plan to write a post about using clay internally at some point in the (hopefully) near future. And a friend of mine has been using a product called Para1, I believe, that I want to find out more about, so stay tuned!
