Bentonite clay has been used to treat several different conditions for hundreds of years. Native Americans and ancient African tribes have used clay as a natural remedy to heal wounds, treat rashes and insect bites, heal stomach pain, relieve ulcers, and heal fatigue.
Bentonite clay comes from deposits of volcanic ash that has settled over thousands of years. As the ash settles through the earth, it absorbs different nutrients from the earth. It is the absorption process that makes clay such a beneficial detoxification in the body, absorbing toxins and carrying them through the system. Bentonite clay products often contain magnesium and over sixty other trace minerals.
This powerful product can be used both internally and externally. Bentonite is commonly used to detoxify the body as its ability to swell and absorb toxins from the body may relieve symptoms associated with toxin build up.
Drinking clay mixed with water is used as a detoxifier and an internal body cleanser. Toxins come from many sources such greasy foods and environmental sources and, overtime, toxins can build up and inhibit the body’s natural functions contributing to issues such as digestive problems, headaches and allergies.
Externally, bentonite clay can be used to treat muscle damage, bruises, cuts and wounds. You can prepare a bentonite clay pack by mixing the clay with water until it has a mud like consistency and apply it to the affected skin area. Other skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes often respond well to bentonite clay treatments. Many personal care products contain bentonite clay as an ingredient, particularly facial products.
