I’m not one to jump on the New Year’s resolution band wagon. I think it is important to try your best all year and to balance that with enjoyment. I actually did not mean for this to be a “clean up your act, it’s the new year,” kind of post. It just worked out that way. Sorry, I know you are bombarded with these kinds of messages.
However, this is my favorite new discovery in my arsenal of health. Detoxifying with Calcium Bentonite Clay is nothing new, but it’s new to me. The idea is to drink a little of the clay mixed with water upon rising in the morning and before bed for two weeks. At the end of the two weeks your digestive system, colon and liver will be cleansed. Trust me, you will know it has happened (insert gross thoughts here) and you will feel amazing.
The benefits of using the clay are the removal of heavy metals, elimination of parasites, improved immune system, reduction of free radicals and to remove all the old fecal matter and muck that is stuck in your colon. It also stimulates blood flow and oxygen in your body and alkalizes your pH levels. Remember from previous posts that disease cannot flourish in an alkaline environment. That is why you want your body chemistry to be more alkaline than acidic.
The way the clay works is that it has strong negatively charged ions that hold and absorb toxins. Toxins are positively charged ions; so convenient! Think of it as a sponge that can grab the toxins and pull them in to itself.
The key is to purchase a reputable brand of Calcium Bentonite Clay with a pH of 8.5 or higher. You can go to the website www.AboutClay.com to find out more. Follow the instructions for mixing and diluting according to your specific clay.
I bought the brand, Living Clay, from Whole Foods. www.LivingClayCo.com and found it to work very well. I’m not going to lie, it was a bit chalky and not delicious, but it was such a small amount to drink that it wasn’t bad.
I’d love to hear your experiences with Calcium Bentonite Clay. And since I accidentally made this a New Year’s post… here’s to your good health in 2014!
