(NaturalNews) There are some simple solutions for protecting yourself from the West Nile Virus contracted from mosquito bites. Keep a little jar of Calcium Bentonite Clay mud on hand at all times and apply topically as soon as bitten. The clay will draw out the venom and virus. Keep reapplying until the redness and itching is gone.

If you live in an area that has been sprayed with chemicals, take at least two clay baths per week, using 1-2 cups of dry clay per bath for adults and 3/4 cup for small children. Because the body detoxifies through the skin, clay baths are becoming more and more popular for drawing out toxins and cleansing the skin. Clay baths also relieve sore muscles and body aches, stimulate lymphatic action and circulation, are very relaxing, and can promote a good night's sleep.

How to prepare a clay bath:

To make mixing easy, start by mixing 1-2 cups of dry clay with 5-6 cups water in a blender, then add the liquefied clay to a hot bath. A whisk can also be used to mix the clay. Immediately wash any clay residue off the metal blender blades or wire whisk hoops after mixing.

Soak for 15-20 minutes. Submerge as much of your body as possible during the bath and stir the water to circulate the clay. The more clay that is used in the therapy, the more powerful the response. Drink water or an electrolyte drink during and after the bath to avoid dehydration. If the clay is dissolved adequately, it is safe for drains and septic tanks. You can also use leftover clay bath water for bathing pets and spraying gardens.

To support the immune system, it is always beneficial to drink a quality internal Calcium Bentonite Clay. The generally recommended amount is 1-2 ounces 2-3 times a day for adults and 1 teaspoon for small children. If taking medications, wait until your medicines are absorbed by the body. Your pharmacist will know how long this should take. Not all clays are suitable for internal use.

Criteria for selecting a quality clay and a reliable clay source

• Is it a Living Clay from the Smectite family of clays?
• Is it a Calcium based Bentonite/Montmorillonite Clay?
• Is it a company that provides Mineral Analysis documentation?
• Is it a company that provides a Quality Control Report to insure the purity of their product?
• Is it a company that provides easy access to qualified personnel to answer your questions?
• Is the clay milled to at least a 325-screen mesh?
• Is it a naturally non-gritty clay?
• Is the pH at least 8.5 or above?
• Is it a non-staining clay?
• Is it a clay with a Cation Exchange Capacity of 80-100 millequivalents 100 g-1, capable of adsorbing and absorbing positively charged ions?
• Is it considered a green swelling clay?
• Is it tasteless and odorless?
• Is it a reliable company that has been in business for several years? • Does it come with professional packaging (no Ziploc bags or hand-written labels) with labels showing directions and ingredients?
• Is it an all-natural, clean clay, direct from the source mine which has not been processed or purified in any fashion?
• Is it a clay from a mine protected from the elements?

For additional protection, do a Google search to find mosquito repelling plants for your patios and porches.
