I have just read a very interesting book called "The Clay Cure -Natural Healing from the Earth"
by Ran Knishinsky, proposing a "Safe and effective way to detoxify, aid digetion, relieve nausea,
treat allergies, soothe ulcers, counteract poiioning, and much more..."
Well, needless to say, if it can do all of that, we have tremedous healing tool here. He makes a very good argument
for its wide spread use in other cultures as a "food" and as survival tool. According to the book,
the Pomo Indians of California were able to eat toxic acorns because it was in a mix with clay that absorbed the poiion.
The author seems well informed and the book well thought out.
Although, being a tad skeptical, I would like to know if anyone else has any experience with using clay.
I have used Bentonite as a detoxing bulk agent.
Since I read the book a week ago, I have incresased usage, and as the book predicted, I have had enormous foul smelling stool.
(Sorry to be so indelicate...)
It occurs to me that it must be drudging up and evacuating sludge, because more is coming out than going in, if you follow my drift.
I feel great, by the way, and about 10 pounds lighter!
I am almost hoping no one is going to tell me something horrible about it, but I do want to know the real deal...
Comments please, anyone?
