why our bodies love clay

It is mentioned in ancient texts that we're made of clay (Adam is Hebrew for red clay). That may be because it is perhaps the most common and widespread substance on earth, but some scientists also hypothesize that life actually originated in a "soup" of clay, water, organic compounds, and energy from light or lightning. In addition, the crystalline structure of clays exhibit a logic of coding similar to DNA, the building block of life. Read more


It seems that the body recognises clay and responds immediately to its presence. Much has been written and researched about the healing clay properties of clay but simply put:” There are five primary attributes of clay:


Edited extract from :"Calcium Bentonite Clay: Nature’S Pathway to Healing”  by Perry A. Arledge

It balances:

A balanced body is designed to heal itself. You could say that clay is intelligent earth.  It is made up of nano crystals.  Crystals are capable of  memory, reorganisation and holding energy.  Clay communicates with the body and acts as needed: it is homeostatic and strives to return the body to a state of wellness.

It detoxifies:

Clay has strongly negatively charged ions that pull, hold and capture positive charged ions which are found in toxin viruses, mold, yeast , heavy metals, and radiation.  This is made possible by its tremendous absorption/adsorption capacity. 

It stimulates

It can promote blood flow and oxygenation, stimulating circulation and the flow of energy necessary for cellular revitalization and repair. it awakens latent cell energy.   

It alkalizes:

Clay has a high alkaline Ph,in the 8.5 to 10. Range.  Internally calcium bentonite clay works from the mouth, down through the alimentary canal, providing a very effective cleansing and detoxing capability even though it is not absorbed through the colon wall into the bloodstream. 

It nourishes :

Since it is naturally very high in mineral content and trace elements clay can be used as a naturally occurring mineral supplement.  Research shows that the way that the minerals and trace elements are found within clay is in the exact balanced ratio that the body needs for perfect assimilation.
