(NaturalNews) Bentonite clay is one of the most versatile and inexpensive natural treatments available. It provides a world of health benefits and is heralded for its safe and effective cleansing properties.

Bentonite clay is composed of aged volcanic ash found in different parts of the world and has been used in treating medical conditions since earliest recorded history. The largest and most popular deposit is found near Fort Benton, Wyoming - hence the name bentonite clay.

Some of the many health benefits of bentonite clay are:

*Cleansing the liver, colon and skin;
*Balancing bacteria in the digestive tract;
*Improving nutrient assimilation; and
*Strengthening the immune system.

In addition, bentonite clay can also eliminate food allergies, food poisoning, colitis, viral infections, and parasites. It is an effective treatment for arthritis, cataracts, diabetic neuropathy, pain, wounds, diarrhea, stomach ulcers, animal and insect bites, acne, anemia and alcoholism; it is effective in treating all digestive conditions and aids in weight loss. Bentonite clay also re-mineralizes cells and tissues, alkalizes the body and is very effective in protecting our bodies against radiation.

Bentonite clay contains montmorillonite, the primary mineral thought to be responsible for its beneficial qualities. It also contains magnesium and approximately 67 other trace minerals. The properties of particles in bentonite clay and how they are distributed contribute greatly to the curative properties of bentonite clay. These particles contain a negative charge that attract all types of toxins and pathogens, which include bacteria, toxins, metals, and pesticides, all of which have a positive charge.

How to take bentonite clay:

Mix one to two teaspoons of clay to an 8 ounce glass of properly filtered water. Do this for three days and after the third day, refrain from using it for four days. On the fifth day, resume taking it for four days, discontinuing use the following three days. This schedule can be continued during the acclimation process which may take up to four weeks.

It is best to take bentonite clay on an empty stomach (at least one hour before a meal or before taking supplements and herbs) to keep it from interfering with the absorption of nutrients and beneficial items. Many health care practitioners recommend taking bentonite clay with psyllium husks, as well as drinking plenty of water, and keeping the body hydrated in order to help prevent constipation. The reason bentonite clay may lead to constipation is because of its ability to absorb many times its weight in pathogens and toxins. Degenerative conditions in the digestive tract can also lead to constipation.

Bentonite clay can be used as external packs for such conditions as bone and muscle damage, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, skin conditions (including eczema and psoriasis), infected wounds, eye strain and tumors, and one to twelve cups of bentonite clay poured in a hot bath will rejuvenate the skin.


When taking bentonite clay internally, it is important that it be taken under the supervision of a health practitioner if:

*The individual is taking any prescription medications; and/or
*High blood pressure is present.

People diagnosed with iron intolerance should not take bentonite clay without blood sample monitoring.

It is also important to note that bentonite clay should not come in contact with any metals.
