(NaturalNews) All living things are fed from the minerals (soils) of the earth either directly or indirectly. Plants absorb minerals from the soil and make them available to our bodies. One of the most overlooked elements in clay is Silica: an element that is essential to the existence of life.

In 1939, the Nobel Prize winner for chemistry, Prof. Adolf Butenandt, proved that life cannot exist without Silica.

According to his research conducted at Columbia University in 1972, hormonal disturbances in the human organism are often due to a calcium-magnesium imbalance. Several studies have shown that silica can restore this delicate balance. Silica also benefits the assimilation of phosphorous. Thus it may be considered a catalyst in the use of other elements.

The Silica in clay is what gives clays properties of nanocrystals. Crystals are capable of memory and holding energy. A Living Clay is an inert clay that is capable of chemical change. A Living Clay communicates with the body and acts as a catalyst that supports the body in healing itself by cleansing, detoxing, stimulating circulation and balancing body pH. A Living Clay has an electro-magnetic energy charge. In other words, it assists the body in regaining equilibrium and thus the normal flow of energy.

Silica is found in blood, brain, kidneys, liver, lymph nodes, lungs, muscle, and testes. The highest levels are found in the connective tissues such as in the aorta, trachea, tendon, bone, skin, hair, and nails. Therefore, it gives strength and support to all the tissues of the body. Silica is the dominant mineral in clay, so it stands to reason the silica in clay creates many of the actions of clay, such as its responsibility in depositing minerals into the bones, especially calcium. It speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. For osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the body's self-repair process. Silica plays a primary role in many body functions and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption.

As calcium in our body system leaches, our bones become brittle and weak. Taking a calcium supplement alone cannot correct or stop this bone deterioration because the body cannot assimilate some calcium forms and make appropriate use of the calcium without the presence of silica.

Research evidence shows that through a transmutation process, silica is turned into calcium when it is needed. That is why some scientists refer to silica as a precursor of calcium. Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn silica into calcium that the bones need.

The Random House College Dictionary describes Bentonite rock as "a clay formed by the decomposition of volcanic ash." It describes clay as "consisting essentially of hydrated silicates of aluminum, regarded as the material from which the human body was formed."

So clays contain the primary elements that make up the body - silica, aluminum, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, sodium, sulphur, carbon and 50-70 trace minerals.

Silica is the dominate mineral in clays at between 40-50%. Knowing the actions of Silica helps us understand how Living Clays contribute to many healing actions in the body. Living Clays from the Smectite family of clays are the only clays that both adsorb and absorb. As a source of natural Silica, Living Clay is nature's own miracle cure, a catalyst that helps the body heal itself.
