Calcium bentonite clay is something that most people have heard about, yet still do not realize just how beneficial that this can be for their bodies and their overall health, nor do they realize just how it works. When most people hear about clay, they think of the type of clay that is used in art classes. Therefore, it is easy to see why many people would find the mere suggestion of eating clay to be something that is just plain weird.
So just what is this bentonite clay?
Bentonite clay is volcanic ash rich in trace minerals that retains a considerable amount of energy from the large and powerful magnetic entity of the Earth which gives it its Ionic / magnetic charge.
Toxins within the body are attracted to bentonite clay due to its magnetic properties. These are toxins which the body would normally get rid of on its own, however, with the number of toxins we are coming in contact with in today’s world, the body has a hard time keeping up. In the meantime, these toxins and bacteria live inside our GI tract, often causing pain and other serious health issues. The bacteria and other living organisms in our system love sugars and sweets. So maybe it's really not you craving sugar it could be them. They live off the food we eat, leaching vitamins and minerals from it, often leaving us deficient of vital nutrients. Bentonite clay has been found to be effective in the treatment of Candida, irritable bowel syndrome, bacteria, virus, heavy metal chelation and parasites.
Most pathogens and toxins (bad bacteria, yeasts, viruses, molds, fungi, heavy metals, free radicals, chemicals, etc.) are positively charged! With bentonite clay being negatively charged these positive charges toxins attract to the clay and removed from the body with the clay in a natural way.
Did you know that gaining weight has a lot to do with our body trying to save us from toxins harming our body? Fat cells grab the toxins and coat the toxin protecting us from harm. The true ideal way is just to eliminate the toxin in the first place. But when the toxins are in great amounts and we can't remove them fast enough fat cells are called out to save our lives.
