One of the main ways clay does its work is to draw to itself positive charged molecules, which it holds like a magnet, both internally and externally, until we wash them from our bodies or pass them through our bodies. Healthy Clay literally removes the positively charged molecules that attack our bodies, from our bodies. According to an article published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, "Detoxification and Mineral Supplementation As Functions of Geophagy" (Johns and Duguette 1991), clay is a potent detoxifier, a catalyst that assists the body in removal of chemical poisons and heavy metals (positive charged ions) from the body.
Clay is effective for many ailments. It will remove impurities including bacteria, fungi, parasites, chemicals, toxins and even help resolve viral infections. It has been used extensively in the treatment of pain, open wounds, colitis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, constipation and intestinal problems, acne, anemia, and a variety of other health issues. Just about everything unhealthy, everything impure, is irresistibly attracted to clay and becomes subject to immediate elimination.
Healthy clay not only draws toxic material out of the
body if taken internally, but also reduces pain and
infection in open wounds on both humans and animals.
Heavy metal toxicity means big trouble for the GI track, especially in children, and nothing speaks louder about this than then children suffering from autistic spectrum disorders. Children with weak immune systems tend to have problems with parasites, bacteria, fungus, and viruses that find fertile territory in a body whose defenses are compromised. Finding conditions ripe to live long term in the body, invading pathogens colonize the host and wreck havoc from within. People with chronic diseases have weak immune systems and almost always have digestive system problems including many of these parasites and microbes.
I think it is very hard to mineralize our kids because of their leaky guts.
Dr. Timothy Ray says that during chelation of mercury with DMSA and DMPS (sulfhydryl chelators), "Some of the mobilized metals may be unbound because the mobilizing and binding mechanisms of each chelator may have different degrees of efficiency depending on each patient’s current biochemistry. The longer the metals stay in the bowel, the more damage and inflammation they can cause. If the patient has Leaky Gut Syndrome or Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which most of these patients do, the increased permeability of the intestinal wall may provide little resistance to the re-absorption of these mobilized metals, which then travel back to where they came from – the brain, kidneys, liver, connective tissue, etc., or are deposited into previously healthy tissue."
The problem with leaky gut and bowel inflammation in general, is that they are very difficult to treat while the metals are still present in that tissue and continuing to cause inflammation. Mercury is known to create antibiotic resistant bacteria, the plasmid responsible also being replicated and passed on to other bacteria. The presence of mercury in the bowel could therefore contribute to the severity and duration of intestinal infections."
For those, who after reading about eating clay are still squeamish about eating earth, know that the experience is nothing like what one might expect. Healthy Clay actually tastes clean and goes down quite easily yielding a pleasant experience. We get the immediate feeling that we are doing something extremely positive for our health.
"Clay is a friend like the earth is our Mother."
