Arthritis & Sore Joints

Knee and Joint Pain
I have had knee pain for over 15 yrs, I am 40.  It's basically overuse and tendonitis.  I have had issues like this with tennis elbow (still have it a little but getting better now, I think it's the clay), Achilles tendonitis and carpal tunnel.  But my knees have been the hardest to deal with because I like to exercise.  And I have tried so many, many things to help me with some help, but I still have constant discomfort.  I am taking 6 ounces of liquid clay/day most days and put the mask on my knees 2x/day and let it dry 20 minutes and remove it.  I have had a 30% improvement so far, it's been about 10 days since I started doing this. - Heidi F.

Swollen Sore Joints
Last summer I had an undiagnosed swollen finger joint...no clue whether it was rheumatic or not...just sore and starting to appear to enlarge. If I pressed down into the knuckle on either side on an angle, I could find pain, and it was starting to ache without pressure. So I spooned some hydrated clay onto a cotton makeup remover circle and wrapped the joint top and bottom with two of these clay circles. I found that if I put clay right out the edges where they overlapped, they would sort of dry together and hold better. Then I went to sleep like this, fingers naturally clamped together on the sides to help hold this makeshift 'bandage' together. After 3 nights of this (nothing in the daytime), the ache was gone and I had to really put hard pressure on it to 'think' I found it. So I waited a couple of days (just got busy), then did it again, and that was that. It is now Feb. 7, 09, and just this mention of it made me check it again. I think I can feel something from one angle, but that's all. - Esther S.

Joint and Muscle Pain
Whenever I experience joint pain or muscle pain, I take a clay bath. It eases the pain tremendously every time. - Irene C.

Stiff Neck Relief
I woke up with a horrible knot in my neck. The pain shooting up into my head and couldn't move my head side to side or even up and down without crying (literally and I am not much of a crier). I took lots of ibuprofen and Tylenol and even a muscle relaxer out of desperation. All of that and the only thing it did was make me sleepy. I finally took a clay bath this evening and soaked for 45 min. up to my neck. While my neck is definitely not pain free it is tolerable and I can move my neck about 45 degrees now! Doesn't sound like much but when I couldn't move it this morning this is amazing! I am going to pack it on and read a book now. Don't know how it worked and at this point I don't care LOL but I must say that the clay in the bath was very noticeably black. YAY CLAY!! Love this stuff. – Leah G.

Arthritic Finger
I just started to put clay on the one finger joint that may have arthritis (I say "may" only because I have not had confirmation by a doctor). It was getting larger, red, making my finger go crooked, painful when hit, and had started to get pain just by itself without getting hit or bumped. Before bed time I hydrated half a teaspoon of clay, wrapped it around the joint, taped plastic around it and removed it in the morning. The second night the redness had reduced, and that periodic pain had not returned. I had forgotten the next two nights. We'll see in about a month. I wish I had taken a picture before I started. - Beckyann  H.

Amazing Relief from Rheumatoid Arthritis
I started thinking. "I wonder could this help me with my rheumatoid arthritis."  So I had my daughter cover my baby finger of my left hand and all the rest of my left hand with the clay.  I also had her cover my then swollen right knee with the clay.  What happened next brought me to tears.  Military doctors told me the deformity of my left baby finger due to rheumatoid arthritis was something I was just going to have to live with.  I was dealing with a couple of other ailments so I guess I sort of pushed it out of my consciousness for a little while.  I always believed that something could heal me I just hadn't found it yet.  All the Military doctors would do was make sure that I had my prescription for the maximum dose of Vicodin and recommend chemotherapy.  Well I never took the chemotherapy and they told me I had a maximum of 2 years and it has been 3 years since the diagnosis. 12 years ago I had a stroke and the Drs told me to go home and get my affairs in order.  Well I did get things in order, I got a computer and I started researching my condition.  I found several things that helped me.  Thank God for helping me to connect with people like you!  Do you know that my finger, the 1st joint in it has just about gone down?  I can already straighten it out!  Hallelujah!!!  That swelling in my right knee---gone after just three applications of Living Clay in Saran Wrap!  Now I'm taking a viral and bacterial cleanse at the beginning of each season.  I just wonder if I know I need to detox especially after taking that Vicodin and taking aspirin. - Michelle H.

Carpal Tunnel
I have tried the muscle rub and was amazed at the relief that it gave me for my carpal tunnel.  I have not had that amount of success with anything else I have used over the years. -  Donna J

Autism

Clay Baths for Autism
Alex is doing really good with the clay baths for his Autism.  I tried to introduce him to clay internally but it was a little too much detoxing and he got a rash (this could have been as a result of something else too but I decided to stop feeding him the clay for now).  He has improved tremendously with potty training and following verbal commands.  I sometimes do the clay like a body mask (1 part clay, 2 1/2 parts water) and apply it to his entire body for about 15 minutes and then he showers.  He actually asks for the clay at bath time sometimes!  He point to the jar and says "I want that thing".  I believe he can feel the difference.  We are doing a mask daily and since we started this, Alex is understanding the use of the potty (for #2) which had been such a challenge.  Maybe we will try feeding him clay soon at a much slower rate and see if he can tolerate it better. I think I went too fast last time.
But I tell you, incorporating the use of clay to our daily protocol has been key to Alex's progress.  Even his Speech Therapist that had not seen him since mid Dec., told me last Monday that she had the best session with Alex ever.  So we will continue to use clay and see how it keeps helping Alex in this journey of recovering from autism. - Becky F.

Clay Baths Improves Communication for Autistic Child
I cannot say enough about living clay and how it has helped my son, Max.  He has autism and along with some behavioral and sensory issues, has trouble with communication. The first time I tried the clay bath I was afraid he wouldn’t go in since the water was cloudy, but he was fine. He relaxed and seemed to enjoy himself, which in itself was a benefit.  What I couldn’t believe was how much he talked that night.  I didn’t expect improvement so soon!

The talking keeps increasing, and his overall mood is better, too.  For months, he took a clay bath every day, and now he takes it once a week. Max has not regressed at all since cutting down the frequency of the baths—his language is continually improving.  However, on the nights he does take a clay bath he talks non-stop!  Everyone who knows us noticed that the sudden spurt of language started with the clay.  I think it really gave him the boost he needed to overcome his difficulties and really kick- started his communication skills.

It is amazing, though, whenever he has a bath he talks non stop.  You really notice it.  But he has been making consistent progress with speech.  It's so exciting!  For the first time, he actually is asking for things like toys...he never used to do that, and he's obsessed with the Cars movie.  It's just so great to see him acting like any other little kid.  I know that the clay really gave him a real boost, and just helped so much with the language.  He plays  more now with his brother!  I could watch them play all day...
 
I also got to experience the benefits of the clay myself.  When I started developing pink eye, I made a clay rinse - just water and clay - and splashed it in my eyes.   The redness decreased immediately.  (My eyes burned a little, but it was not painful.) I used the rinse several times that day, and left my contacts out, to give my eyes a rest.  By the third day of using the rinse, my eye was fine!  Normally the only thing that gets rid of pink eye is an antibiotic ­ ­- I can’t believe how potent the clay is. 

We also use the clay for rashes, bug bites, and to brush our teeth.  After brushing with it, my teeth feel like they do after a dentist’s cleaning.  This stuff is really amazing.  It changed our lives more than we ever could have anticipated.

Your staff is incredibly helpful, willing to correspond with consumers and give advice.  They really care and they want people to benefit from the clay. Thanks so much. - Diana P.

Autism Progress
My family and I started taking 2 oz of clay twice a day (the detox dose) in Oct. of 2005. We also started our son on clay baths once daily for 2 weeks in the hopes that we would see some improvement in his autistic behavior. We noticed an improvement in him being able to process his thoughts and convey them.  His skin is clearer and his bowel movements are easier. His memory has improved and he falls asleep better. - Deborah W.

Autism - 2 1/2 Year Old Son
I have seen wonderful results with therapeutic clay on my 2 1/2 year old son. He suffers from autism. Ever since being on clay therapy he has become more calm, language has increased, more sociable, it has helped his bowel movements become more regular.  The clay also provides heavy metal detoxification (aluminum, lead, mercury). The therapeutic clay is just part of his biochemical treatment he is receiving in addition to vitamin supplements, acupuncture and homeopathy. I have tried other clays with my son but this is the one he loves. I have turned the clay baths into a game. I highly recommend this clay to other parents that are searching for a clay that will help their child heal from autism in addition to other therapies you are doing currently. - Catherine

6 Year Old with ASD
I
am a mother of an ASD 6 yr old beautiful boy. My son was non-verbal. Just started to talk a few months ago. We decided to try the clay bath, and soon after clay internally. Never in a million years, did I think I would actually give my 2 boys clay internally. Now there isn't a day that goes by that they don't. The clay baths are wonderful, but taking clay internally is another thing. We noticed improvements with his speech, more verbal and expressive. Another thing, we noticed was his BM's. Where as before, he used to have 1-2 BM's in a day, now he has 3 BM's. Yahoo!!!!! This is a dream come true! Funny what excites us. My son used to be constipated for years. I was so desperate, we used to give our son enemas in the past. Well there is allot to be said about clay. Healing, Health & Happiness. - Jenny S

Amazing Clay Bath-Autism Experience
It was over a year ago that my brother-in-law, Bo, gave me some pre-mixed hydrated Bentonite Clay.  He explained that I could ingest it, bathe in it, wash my hair with it, give myself a facial, etc.  He went on and on about this product, exclaiming how great it was and how not only does he use it on himself, but that he uses it on his two little girls, my nieces, as well. 

Anyway, it wasn’t until a couple of months ago while researching Autism on the internet that I came upon uses of Bentonite Clay and its claim to draw heavy metals/toxins out of the body.  Since I still had the mixed clay that Bo left with me I thought that I’d attempt to put it in my nephew, Corbin’s, bath the next time I was over for a visit.  Corbin is six years old and he loves his baths. I soon had plans to babysit Corbin and decided that I would add the clay to his bath then. What transpires next is something that continues to bring tears to my eyes. 

I was warned that Corbin might not get into the tub if something seems unusual about the water. Prior to filling the tub with water I selected the Goldberg Variations for him to listen to while he played on the computer.  I already knew that Corbin reacted well to classical music and knew of its calming effect on him. I then filled the tub and added four fingered scoop of the hydrated clay that I rubbed together in my hands as I put my hands in the water. I was thrilled the water did not appear cloudy or suspect.   I kept the clay product near the tub in the event I could get away with adding more of it while he was bathing.

Soon Corbin is in the tub and begins to play with his “tub toys”.  The Goldberg Variations are playing in the background.  It wasn’t but a few minutes after entering the tub that Corbin stops playing and looks directly into my eyes.  He then resumes his play.  A few minutes later he looks at me again and then points upward towards some hand towels on a shelf.  He says “towel please”.  I am surprised by this because he usually doesn’t communicate like this.  I hand him the hand towel and he begins to play with it in the water.  While he is doing this I scoop up another handful of the clay mixture and begin rubbing my hands together and then slowly place my hands in the water to let the mixture dissipate again.  Corbin stops what he’s doing and watches my actions intently.  He then looks at me and sustains his gaze.  This is odd for him to look into my eyes and then to sustain it. 

I’m thinking “alright…I got away with adding the clay…terrific”!  Then Corbin starts to play again.  I ask if he’ll sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star for me.   He does so perfectly.  My brother told me that he will sing to them sometimes, but I have never heard him sing. He then looks up at me and points to the clay and says “more please”.  This blew me away.  I then call my mother and ask her to come over to see what I am witnessing.  I had not been around Corbin for some time and wanted to know if this was now normal for him.  Since my mother spends much more time with him I knew that she could tell me if what I was seeing was normal or not.  She then experiences more of what I have been observing and tells me that he has never looked at her like this before.  She sees Corbin look into her eyes, sustain the look and say “hi Grandma”.  He does not look away.

When my brother and sister-in-law, Jack and Margie, arrive home we tell them of what we experienced.  They seem surprised and thrilled and promise to continue to use the clay mixture in Corbin’s bath.  A few weeks pass and I am over visiting again.  This time both parents are there while I am there.  I add clay mixture to his bath.  While Corbin is playing I add more clay mixture to his bath and both parents tell me that they have not been putting in as much clay mixture as I used. 

When Corbin is done with his bath and is in his “jammies” he sees a wrapped present and asks his mother if this gift is for him.  Margie replies “no Corbin this is for mommy...it’s for my birthday”.  Corbin then picks up the gift and brings it to his mother and commences to sing Happy Birthday in its full version while never taking his eyes off his mother’s face.  I look at my brother wondering if this is normal and I see clearly that it is not as my brother’s eyes are welled up with tears.  I look over at Margie when Corbin is done singing and there are tears rolling down her face.  I look at Corbin’s older sister, Kelbie, then twelve, and her mouth is gaped open.  She immediately goes into the bathroom and begins to give herself a Bentonite Clay facial.  It was great!  It is at this time that I realize something has happened, something pretty powerful. 

I then left town for four months, but before leaving I left with Jack and Margie several different detoxifying products I’d read about on the internet. While I was away Jack and Margie put the recommended drops in Corbin’s juice and continued with the clay mixture baths, but soon the clay mixture was gone.  They continued with the juice additions.

Since arriving home a month ago my brother told me that nothing has worked as well as the clay mixture. I looked locally for the clay, but can find it only in small quantities.  I contacted Bo and asked him to hook me up with his source.  This weekend I will be in Austin where I will pick up a 50 lb. bucket of Bentonite Clay and the fun will begin again.  I cannot wait! 

We continue to try different things to help Corbin.  We know that diet is extremely important and the family continues to work on this as well.  This Bentonite Clay is a Godsend.

Sincerely yours,
Terry N.

Back Problems

Ruptured Disc -Clay Saved from Surgery
I have a quick story that you might find useful, related by a naturopath friend of mine named Marian. A very athletic, active mountain climber friend of hers was injured during a fall while climbing. He was in his 30s and in great shape. He ruptured a few disks and was in enormous pain. The doctors wanted to operate to fuse his spine. Marian requested six weeks of her friend's time. Every day, she'd lay him on her massage table, put a clay poultice over his entire back from occiput to sacrum, and wrap him in plastic. I don't know how many poultices she did per day or what type of clay she used. At the end of six weeks, X-rays of her friend's spine were normal and he went back to mountain climbing.  It seems logical that clay can heal bones as well. - Nenah S.

Disc Bulge
I have a disc bulge in my lower back and sacroilitis…One day I had spent five hours in the yard raking and mulching. When I came in I could barely move: sitting, standing and moving from either position were extremely painful. This is typical of my condition. I had Living Clay prepared, but hadn’t used any yet. I took two ounces and ten minutes later, the pain was GONE. I felt fine the rest of the evening. I was stiff when I woke up in the morning and took two more ounces. I had no pain the rest of the day. Typically pain like I had that evening would have lasted at least a week and may have even caused me to miss that following day of work. I am amazed at the power of this product. Thank you so much for what you do. - Dawn S.

Chronic Back Problems
To understand what clay has done for me and what it means to me; I feel it is important to give you a brief history of my ‘pre-clay’ history. Although I did not have any life-threatening illnesses; I was always sick and on antibiotics of some kind. If there was a cold or anything going around, I would catch it. I also had a lot of sinus infections, headaches etc. and it seemed to be a never-ending cycle. I would get sick, get antibiotics from the doctor, get better and then a few months later, or sooner, would get sick again…

I ‘slipped my disc’ in high school and for 30+ years have battled it and tried just about everything I could (except surgery).  Although some of my ‘therapy’ has helped I still had problems with it ‘going out’ ; severe pain; and even unable to carry on with normal life functions; let alone play tennis or other forms of sports I might wish to participate in. The only thing that seemed to get me back ‘straight’ and able to function were chiropractor visits; usually several; ice; back exercises and rest. I was literally ‘out of action’ for days at a time and usually two or three times each year! Most recent x-rays showed a long list; degenerative disc, old herniated disc, scoliosis, spurs, arthritis..etc.

In my search for a solution to my back problems and avoiding back surgery I did, and still do most of the following: back exercises, hot tub, inversion table, anti-gravity recliner, good back brace for tennis etc, heel lifts and various pain relievers, muscle relaxers, ointments and so forth. Then, almost accidentally or as an afterthought; I used some clay that Perry A~ had left with my mom when visiting Midland on a trip she made to speak at the ladies Greentree Country Club group. I was experiencing some really bad rashes on my ankle and forehead; usually flared up and associated with too much tennis. I had tried various expensive ointments, shots etc from the dermatologist , with little success. Both areas would itch like crazy, esp. after tennis, and I would scratch until they bled sometimes.

I tried putting clay on them and immediately noticed some relief in the itching and pain associated. To my amazement, within a few days and continual applications, the rashes started getting better, itched less and after continual usage of the clay for approximately 10 days they were gone!  I was so impressed that I started reading the book, ‘Living Clay’ by Perry A~ and after reading about the benefits of internal consumption; pain relief for sore muscles ; helping in promoting healing of broken bones etc… I decided to try clay baths, external applications of the clay on my back and eventually drinking the liquid clay.

The rest is history! I am a walking testimonial for clay and its benefits. I have not seen my chiropractor for 2 years now! Play tennis 4-5 times a week! I have not seen a Dr, taken any medication, etc. for 2 years! (When I do feel something coming on; stressed; have over done it etc. I up my clay dosage and it ‘kicks’ it). I feel better; have more energy and find more and more uses for the clay. I drink it, bathe in it and use it for external applications. It is great for insect bites; even spider bites, pain relief, burns, cuts, any skin problem, full body-detoxification and basically just about anything that ails you…. I was so impressed I now have a website and sell the Living Clay after getting a distributorship through Kyle and the Living Clay Co.  My mission is to ‘spread the word’ about clay and helping others with its many and amazing benefits. I truly believe it is part of “God’s Pharmacy” provided to us to help us achieve and maintain health. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. Many thanks to Perry A~, the Living Clay Co- Kyle and the crew, and to CLAY. - Paul M.

Two-story Fall
Daniel D.:  54 yrs. / welder, horse trainer / entrepreneur. Presented with; Compressed spinal column, ruptured discs, pinched and atrophied CNS. Medical Diagnosis; wheelchair and quadriplegic within weeks.

Causation;  Russia-2002; Russian worker two stories above was falling after being swiped by an 800 lb. Metal beam.  Daniel grabbed onto the worker as he was passing his scaffold in order to cushion his fall and save his life.  They both landed on frozen ground from 4 stories up with the beam landing on top.  The Russian medics put Daniel on super strong pain killers and told him that he was fine, go back to work.  When a Canadian co-worker returned to the job 6 wks later, Daniel was told to get off the pills as they are only to be used for 5 days.  By then the damage was exacerbated. Many months and years of pain, testing and depression followed.

After many personal experiments with mineral formulas good results were showing.  In 2007, Daniel could still not flex enough to touch his toes or put shoes on without pain.  Four months ago, Dan could not make it into town to purchase more analgesics and Cal-Mag.  He mixed up some of the powdered clay and started taking 1 oz. morning and evening.  Within 3 days he was pain free.  He went an entire shift of  7 days without remembering he had serious physical issues.  The pain returned mildly when he ran out of clay.  One month later he began biofeedback.  After the first session he could touch his toes. After the second he could ride horses again.  He is still taking sessions but firmly believes the sessions are holding the frequency with the aid of Living Clay. - Daniel D.

Bites & Stings

Wet Clay Wraps and Fire Ants
I wanted to share with you a way that I found to keep the clay moist and go about your day without getting clay all over everything. I was bit by fire ants on both feet. This in the past has proven to be a very long ordeal for me with intolerable itching and swelling and eventually, from all the scratching, an infection. My discomfort level was 9 out of 10, from all the itching and swelling of my ankles. I sat on the tub with my feet in the tub. I applied wet Calcium Bentonite Clay on my feet and then took 2 pieces of 5' long cheesecloth, wet them, applied more wet CB Clay to the cheesecloth and wrapped it around my feet. It looked as if I was wrapping it as you would wrap a sprain. I of course covered all the areas that had been bitten. You can find this cheesecloth at the grocery store in a package. It is usually found in a section with kitchen utensils. It is for crafts and household uses. I believe you can also find it at fabric stores. After wrapping my feet and being sure I had enough wet clay in there, I wrapped them both with saran wrap. Then I put zip lock baggies over each foot. I then put my crocks on which were the widest and loosest fitting shoes I own. I walked around the house and outside for 6 hours with this wet clay on. After a while my feet squished around! However it was wonderful to have 6 hours with absolutely no itching. Then after I washed the CB Clay off, my discomfort level dropped to between 1 and 2 with no swelling or itching. It was only when the hem edge of my slacks hit my ankle that I felt a bit of irritation. I did nothing more to my ankles. I did not apply anything or reuse the clay. After about a week the discomfort level went to 0. I now have no discomfort at all and the bites are completely cleared up. I believe that the clay's benefits are more dramatic when the clay stays wet. When I give myself a CB Clay facial, now I think I will keep a spray bottle of filtered water on hand to spritz my face so it stays wet. Having these solutions to keep it wet makes the clay even more valuable. I have a family emergency kit put together in case of a national emergency. My clay is in that kit. - Maryellen L.

Insect Bite Turns to MRSA Infection
I had a mosquito bite on the back of my right leg that I scratched and got infected with what the doctor claimed as a granular staph infection. Since it was granular the 2 bouts of antibiotics had no effect on the wound. It was still necropsying so I knew I needed to find something that would pull the infection out of the wound topically. The infection was now what I believe to be MRSA. I searched the internet and eventually came upon your website among others that described the healing powers of the living clays. I ordered the bentonite clay and started applying a wet paste of the clay on the wound the first week of December in 2011. There was a noticeable change of the wound within 2 days. It was not as red and “angry” as it had been prior to the clay. I would mix the clay with distilled water and apply it directly over the wound and cover it with part of a collard green leaf (I found it worked better than cellophane wrap) and wrapped the area of my leg with an ace bandage. I would change the dressing 3 times a day for the first two weeks and then reduced it back to 2 times a day after that. By mid-January (approx. 7 weeks) the “infection” was cleared. The wound is still healing from the whole that it left in my leg, but at least the necropsying has stopped and the underlying tissue is healing. In all, it has taken about 3 months to get to this point. The clay was very soothing to the area of the wound. The pain associated with the infection was pretty bad and within 3 weeks the soreness had subsided. I know that it sounds like a long time but with the depth of the wound and the infection involved, it certainly was faster and less evasive than the alternative of various antibiotics and possible skin grafting that I was told was to be expected.

Both of my children who are in the medical field, one is a doctor of osteopathy and the other a nurse, along with the dermatologist I originally saw for the infection, wanted me to continue with the antibiotics. This would have involved months of this medication that obviously was not affecting the site at all but was upsetting everything else in my system. I knew that for me this was not an option. I know there are more organic ways of healing our organic bodies so that is why I went on the search.

I am glad to say that I won out on all levels! The wound is healing and I did not have to sacrifice my bank account and relative health to achieve this outcome. If you’re an outdoors person like me, this is a product that is a must for your “medicine cabinet”!

The pictures I included are of what the wound looked like when I started using the clay (#1) along with what the clay actually was pulling out (#2) and what the site looks like as of a week ago (#3). The pictures can be seen here.

Thank you Perry for spreading the word on such a wonderful, natural product! - Connie M.

Puss Caterpillar Bite
I got stung by a puss caterpillar yesterday. The stings an be vicious. But I did what I could to get the stingers out immediately and I kept clay on the wound. Today there is still a mark, but no pain, swelling, or burning, which is unusual. The Bentonite sucked all the poison out of the wound because I am better already. Benadryl can kiss my a$$, cause that stuff really did the job OVERNIGHT! - Robin

Bee Stings
My husband was stung by an unknown bee twice this summer. I made a clay mask and applied to the "red" area both times and within a few minutes the redness started disappearing and the pain went away. Within an hour or
so, you could not even see the bee sting. - Irene C.

Bug Bites
On my February 2004 missionary trip to New Hope Mission in Uganda, Africa, I took some clay for my sister to try.  While there I was stung by a vicious ant similar to our infamous Texas Fire ants.  I remembered reading about the benefits of using it on insect bites so I decided to give it a try.  Wow was I glad I did!  Within several seconds the burning and itch began to subside and within a minute was completely gone.  The next day there was no small pimple as usual with ant stings and after reapplying the clay the sting mark was gone the next day.  It also worked great to soothe the mosquito bites.  My mom and sister like using the clay because it really pulls out the toxins and helps their face feel and look better. - Michael M.

Bug Bites and Staph Infection
I have been using clay on my granddaughter's bug bite that turned into a staph infection requiring a trip to the ER. It looked MUCH better after the first application -- my son was completely skeptical -- but after 2 more applications he was starting to be convinced.  Jenny M.

Spider Bite
It was an unbelievable experience.  Most thought I would be hospitalized when I shared it.  I was very frightened at what had happened to my body.  Early in the morning I noticed a small hot spot, maybe the size of a dime.  It was red and enflamed.  By mid afternoon, it had enlarged and continued to grow.  I placed ointments on it but the inflamed area continued to expand until it reached an area of about 4"X6" when I began to apply the Bentonite clay.  The growth slowed almost immediately and within a couple of days the redness and swelling began to diminish.  I applied the clay a couple of times a day for the next couple of weeks.  And miraculously the area totally healed--the swelling went down, the redness left.  Today, all I have is a tiny black dot where apparently the stinger or whatever permeated my skin still remains.  I would never have believed that clay could do such an incredible healing from an apparent spider bite. - Judith B.

Brown Recluse Bite
Right after I started using the clay my Macie was bitten by a brown recluse spider. I applied the hydrated clay almost immediately, but red streaks had started up her leg about 5 or 6 inches ...she was in pain, but the clay took that away.  I reapplied every two hrs. and within about 8 hrs. she was doing well ...it was time for bed, so I reapplied the clay, wrapped it up for the night and sent her to bed ...the next day she was all better, no pain ...only a small 'cater' was left at the bite site.  Whenever the kids get bit by any insect, they now go get the clay.  :-)  My husband and I are and they are ...such believers!! - Debbie

Another Brown Recluse Bite
A friend of mine recently was bitten by a "Brown Recluse Spider". It was late in the evening so I immediately had her apply a very large glob of our calcium bentonite clay to the bite. She changed the poultice several times during the night. The next morning she went to the doctor and he squeezed the wound and a sack with the poison intact popped out of her arm. He was very surprised, and even though he did recommend antibiotics, she suffered no effects from this bite. Hooray for clay! It is always important to keep some hydrated clay close at hand for just such emergencies.
- Carol

Severe Brown Recluse Bite
I had a huge brown recluse bite on my inner left thigh that I had started using Activated Charcoal on. (What a mess that was!!) 

The clay started working immediately! I was into my second week of battling this bite, when I finally remembered that I had purchased some of your clay from the Power Hour months before, so I started using it, applying a thick paste of it to the wound (which at this point was about the size of a quarter) as soon as that dried, I would remove it, then reapply it again. I did this for over a week, but after just 1 day, the wound was noticeably better. Like I said above, the dead tissue was about the size of a quarter, but the whole area that was affected was about 6" in diameter, I knew that if I could not stop this toxin, this whole area was going to look like the quarter size spot. I continued doing this for 2 weeks, and now I can hardly tell there was EVER a bite there, very minimal scarring!!  By the way, that was not the only bite I received, a couple of weeks later, I had 4 bites on my left arm, (killed the little bugger this time!) I immediately applied the clay to these spots, they never progressed beyond little red bumps. I amazed family and friends when I told them how I cured these bites. I think they are now believers, too. It would not surprise me if you started getting customers from this area!!

I am ABSOLUTELY!! Satisfied with this clay.  WILL NEVER BE CAUGHT WITHOUT IT AGAIN!!  I also drink it everyday, since we are invaded with environmental toxins everyday!! - Lori F.

Spider Bite on the Foot
The father of a good friend of mine got bitten on his foot by a spider which caused swelling and multi-discoloration on top of the foot. She applied a poultice of moist clay covered by a bandaid which she changed daily. Within 24 hours much of the swelling was gone and the discoloring began disappearing. In a week's time, there was no sign of him ever being bitten. - Judy

Spiders and Mosquitoes
Just wanted you to hear how the Clay helped me. I was bitten on the forearm by a spider during the night. I awoke with one area of my forearm swollen to three times the normal size. It was blazing hot and painful to the touch. Actually, I was a little freaked out by it. But I remembered reading in your book entitled "Living Clay" about insect bites. I immediately took some of my hydrated clay and put a huge amount of clay on the swollen area. After it had dried, I washed it off and took a look. Much better, but still swollen. I reapplied the clay and let it dry again. I repeated this process over the day and by 6:00 p.m., my forearm was back to its original size and the pain was completely gone.  No need for cortisone or any kind of anti-inflammatory medication. I hope your readers can benefit from this remedy. The mosquitoes here are extremely brutal this summer and the hydrated clay works just as well on these kind of bites. - Michael

Wasp Sting
It was astounding to get instant relief from a wasp sting one night.  I smeared some hydrated clay on the sting which was on my shin right where it meets the foot.  I washed it off before bed an hour later -- a bad idea -- because I awoke the next morning with swelling and what felt like a deep bruise.  After half a day of limping around I bought some plastic wrap and during my lunch break fashioned a poultice at the site with a tablespoon of the little bit of hydrated clay I carry with me.  Within minutes the pain went away and despite walking around on it the rest of the day, the swelling went down by that evening when I removed it all before taking a shower.  I had no further symptoms thereafter.  It was like I was never stung to begin with. - Stuart Spangenberg

Best Insect Bite Remedy
This is the best best remedy for any kind of insect bite!!!  My husband is shocked at how well this works. We apply a light coating to any kind of bite and in a few hours the area is less red and is starting to dry up! Just ordered another jar of Living Clay.  Thanks for such a great product!!! - Jane O.

Jelly Fish Sting
A friend I have introduced clay to called me yesterday about her trip to Florida. She was at a large gathering at the beach and several of the children were stung by jelly fish. Immediately some of the Mom's were trying shaving cream, vinegar etc. She waited until none of that worked and then dragged out the jar of hydrated clay she had taken on the trip. It stopped the sting immediately. Now they are all fans!! - Edith

Cat Bite
Anyone ever been bitten by a cat? They have something in their saliva that makes their bites one of the worst you can get. Many times you end up at the doctor's or emergency for antibiotics to say nothing about them being very painful. Last night I had to clean the ears of 5 kittens who had been exposed to ear mites. The one kitten fought me so much I had to have my husband help hold her and she went ballistic when I put the cleaner in her ear. I don't know if it was just fear or what but she started fighting and screaming. One of the grown cats thought we were hurting her and grabbed my lower leg and started biting. She got me about 4 or 5 times before I could get her off. After stopping the bleeding with dry clay I coated the whole area with hydrated clay and put plastic wrap and an elastic bandage around it for the night. This morning I got up and there was no swelling, no redness or any pain. - Mary Lee

Blood Pressure & Cholesterol

Cholesterol & Blood Pressure
Before reading the book, Living Clay, my husband was told that he had high cholesterol and high blood pressure. His cholesterol was 290 and at its highest, his blood pressure was 148/90. The doctor told him that he should be on medication for both issues. He is a 39 year old, that exercises regularly and eats well. He is not over weight. He's never been one to believe in natural remedies. However, he decided to give living clay a try. We read the book and listened to the supplemental CD. He started using ideas from the book, and drinking living clay. Just 2 months later his cholesterol reading was down to 224. And in just 2 weeks his blood pressure dropped to 125/82. Now 2 months later, his blood pressure is now 115/71. He never once took any of the medication that was prescribed to him by the doctor. We now take a shot glass of living clay every day and both feel great.”  D. Walker

Blood Pressure Improvement
I have been taking the clay for 3 weeks now, I find my blood pressure has return to normal. Been on the BP pills for over 2 years.  - Robert  M.

Lower Cholesterol
I recently had my cholesterol checked and it had dropped so significantly from the previous 2 year reading that the lady was astonished and she asked me what I had been doing. I told her that the only definite things that I had done in that 2 year period was the clay and psyllium husk powder. These test results were beneficial for me to see because it is a definite factual thing that tells me some good is being done inside the body. - Hallie G.

Burns

Waffle Iron Burn
I burned the palm of my hand pretty badly. I was heating a waffle iron and placed my hand on top to see if it was hot, what a mistake that was!! My hand was on fire, so to speak. I iced it and then clayed it for a few hours. I covered it with clay before going to bed. The next day there was no evidence of a burn, no redness or blistering. It was like it never happened. I was amazed with the results!! - Patricia R.

3 Fingers Burned from a Hot Grate
I burned 3 fingers picking up a very hot grate on my stove. We had just boiled some water and removed the teakettle, and I noticed it needed to be cleaned underneath the grate. I dropped the grate as soon as I picked it up and as it clattered to the floor I rushed to put globs of clay on each finger.  After about an hour, most of the clay had fallen off, and I had almost forgotten about the incident.  When I washed the remaining clay off my fingers, I found no sign of a burn. Advice: keep the clay "handy"!
  - Mary Helen K.

Oven Burn
It was 6:30 p.m. on a Thursday evening.  I had burned my arm reaching in the oven and hitting the rack above the casserole. Instant burn pain.  You know the kind.  The constant painful sensation that doesn’t let up.  I knew I would have a blister on the back of my hand from this burn. Bummer. Well, I had heard about this green Bentonite clay and its healing powers and I had just received a sample made up in paste form.  Why not, I thought, as I spread an ample portion over my hand. The cool paste clay felt soothing and refreshing. In less than a minute the painful sensation was gone. Well I was somewhat impressed but still expected the blister and tenderness that would last for days.

Guess what… It didn’t happen.  No, I mean it. It didn’t blister and stay tender for days. You know how you do the dishes with your hands in warm water after having a burn and it feels really tender and starts hurting again? Well it didn’t happen. I just never blistered. Didn’t even leave a mark. Next I felt a mouth ulcer coming on.  I packed a glob of the clay over the spot and went to sleep. The spot felt smaller the next morning.  I put some more clay on and went about my business.  Want to guess what happened?  Well if you guess it was gone within 24 hours you are right. I was impressed. - Ashley A.

Another oven burn
I work in a cafeteria which means burns all the time. The greatest testimony I have is the day I picked up a pan that had just come out of a 550 degree oven. Every finger pad and thumb pad were on fire. I called my daughter 15 minutes away and told her to run to my house and get my bottle of hydrated clay (which was very cheap at the HFS) When she FINALLY made it there I coated every finger with the thick goo. Every couple hours I would pour that down the rubber gloves I put on. By that evening, you could hardly tell I had done a thing. The finger never blistered. Hydrated clay is a must in the kitchen!! - Edith

Severe Finger Burn
I was baking at the shop yesterday, had 9 trays of cookies, doing three trays in the oven at a time. I had taken 3 trays out of the 425 degree oven and was putting three more in. I mistakenly grabbed one of the hot trays and burned all five of my fingers on the right hand. I immediately ran them under cold water and plunged them into ice. I have three fingers with significant 2nd degree blisters. Standing there thinking, what I could do, I thought of the clay. I went and grabbed a jar of powder and made a thick pumice out of it. I covered all five fingers in clay. I could still feel the sting and every time, I just added more clay on top of it to block out the oxygen. I kept the clay on for 4 hours. When I got home, I took the clay off to see the damage. Three of the fingers have significant swelling and obvious blisters. The pain was gone. I protected it the rest of the night as not to create any more damage to the area. This morning, the swelling is down, the blisters are absorbed and the pain is gone. I am using my hand as if nothing ever happened. The clay is amazing and was my only option at the time of the accident. – Diane H.

Burn on Finger
I just had to write you because I am so thankful for the work of the clay.  Last Thursday morning, I got a very severe burn on my finger which immediately blistered.  I was on my way to work so I quickly put a dollop of clay on the burn and covered it with a band-aid.  It immediately cooled down the pain.  I repeated this Thu. night, Fri. morning, Fri. night and on Saturday morning, the blister was gone.  The blister never broke.  It just seemed to collapse in and smooth out.  I can still slightly see where it was.  I've had burns before and I've never had it heal so fast or painlessly. This was just wonderful. - Linda

Pizza Mouth Burn
I am in the Air Force and in my current job as a staff member in DC, I travel normally 3 weeks out of 4 every month.  One day I was extremely late for the airport (not wanting to get stuck in the security checks), and as I passed a pizzeria heading for my gate, I darted in for a hot slice of pizza (very unusual as I strive to eat organic and healthy).  Not thinking (because my stomach was rumbling) I pulled it out of the box and bit into this VERY HOT slice of cheese pizza.  Needless to say, the hot cheese welded itself to the roof of my mouth and burned it terribly.  For the next 3 hours on the plane, I couldn't even drink water without it hurting and the pain seemed to be intensifying.  When I arrived at my location and checked into my room, I decided to get my bottle of clay out and drink some.  The results were unbelievable...the pain, soreness, throbbing was instantly gone...and never returned!!!  There is no other explanation for what happened except the living clay stopped the blistering and pain related to a burn and healed my mouth. - Dan R.

Hot Pizza Bite –Clay to the Rescue
A few weeks ago, I had made a pizza for dinner. It smelled so good coming out of the oven! Even though I knew better, I cut a slice and took a big bite...and promptly burned the daylights out of my tongue and the roof of my mouth! I ran to the den where I keep some ready-mixed clay in a mason jar. I scooped out about two tablespoons of cool clay into my mouth and just held it there. About fifteen minutes later I chased it down with a glass of water...and the burning pain was gone! The pizza had cooled down in the mean time and I had a wonderful, pain-free dinner! What did we ever do before clay came along?! –Jamie C.

Sun Burn
I got too much sun a couple weeks ago and got pretty pink, it was uncomfortable.  So that night and for the next 2 days I took clay baths, used 2 cups and it helped immediately.  My pink turned tan in 3 days, no peeling at all. - Heidi F.

Jalapeno Face Burn
I also have a story to report. The other night while washing my face I got Jalapeno Juice on my face and in my eye. It's a long story, but cliff notes are: my son eats peppers all the time and he used a face towel as a placemat while eating on the furniture and it ended up in the towel cabinet as a clean towel) I felt my eye burning, but thought I had soap in it and further wiped with the towel. My eye, my face, a lip, everywhere I dragged the towel across my face was on FIRE! At first, I had no idea what was going on, only that the water I was using to try to wash it off was making it worse! I have sensitive skin anyway. So I looked at the towel and saw the green juice on it. I grabbed my hydrated clay and used a q-tip to place it as close to my eye as possible and all along my face and lip. Within seconds the burning stopped and after several minutes the pain and burning was completely gone!  Needless to say, I love my clay!!!!! -  Justine F.

Clay Baths

Heavenly Clay Bath
OH.......MY GOD!  I just did my first clay bath and it was SO GREAT!!!  I feel like a million bucks!  I also used the Lavender soap and body cream.....also SO GREAT!  I feel like how Cleopatra must have felt....HA!  I love your products and your Southern generosity. I'll be a customer for life. I'll tell ya' one thing I noticed since I did the clay bath last evening: my skin has a pleasant warmness to it, and I sweated like I only sweat when I drum, after the bath. It just felt SO good. My bathroom smells like the lavender soap you gave me, and I got a new batch of essential oils today. I think I'm going to write a book and entitle it: "I died and went to the bathroom (pun intended)....don't call, don 't write". I....have a confession......I have become a natural product WHORE. I've even eschewed Jimmy Choo's and Dooney and Bourke for just about any natural product I can get my hands on. That's what I wish I could get a career doing: testing and writing about natural products. Then I could spend most of my time in one of my most favorite places....my bathroom. It's almost like Holy ground to me. You would have laughed your arse off if you could have been the fly on the wall when I was taking my clay bath. You would have thought I was rolling around in pure, liquid gold itself! But I know a good thing when I'm WALLOWING in it, and as far as I'm concerned...it IS liquid gold and nothing less. I was so looking forward to that clay! I whipped out my thick and thirsty, 100% organic robe and slippers, de-chlorinated the bath water first, lit a candle, had a cold bottle of water with a twist of lime in there with me and got the water as hot as I could take it. Added the clay and IN I went......for 20 minutes of GLORY. Life.....can really suck. Clay....sucks a whole lot better!!!  HA! - Lizabeth

Knot in Neck- No Movement
Just wanted to share my experience from today. I woke up with a horrible knot in my neck. The pain shooting up into my head and couldn't move my head side to side or even up and down without crying (literally and I am not much of a crier). I took lots of ibuprofen and Tylenol and even a muscle relaxer out of desperation. All of that and the only thing it did was make me sleepy. I finally took a clay bath this evening and soaked for 45 min. up to my neck. While my neck is definitely not pain free it is tolerable and I can move my neck about 45 degrees now! Doesn't sound like much but when I couldn’t move it this morning this is amazing! I am going to pack it on and read a book now. Don't know how it worked and at this point I don't care LOL but I must say that the clay in the bath was very noticeably black. YAY CLAY!! Love this stuff. - Leah G.

Clay Bath Detox Results
The clay has been working so well for me that I can hardly believe the results I have gotten and quickly, too. The first clay bath I took almost did me in. I must have been very toxic. I was tired and lethargic for about 3 days after, sleeping a lot and feeling exhausted. After I recovered, I felt better than I have in a very long time. I knew this could happen and was not dismayed in the least that it did, in fact, I was thrilled because I knew something good would come of it. A side benefit to all of this claying of my body is that my skin is so soft and smooth, it’s never looked healthier and I feel so much better. – Linda W.

Soft Skin
Since I started clay baths my skin is so soft and smooth people remark on it. One time a friend touched my arm to get my attention in a restaurant and embarrassed me with oohs and aahs and loud exclamations of how touching my skin was like touching satin or velvet. We had several people come by the table to see if they could have a "touch test" for themselves. No beet had anything on me. - Mary Lee. S.

Clay Bath Tub Tips for Kids
I am a mom of 2 very feisty boys.  It's hard to get them to sit still even for a minute.  So you can imagine the trouble I have getting them to stay for 20 minutes in a clay detox tub bath.  After the first one or two baths the fun wears off and they just lose interest.  Well, what happens after those first few times when you want to continue the baths on a regular basis?  You have to get inventive!  I went to Wal-Mart and bought this 45 gallon plastic storage container for $15.  They love it.  It's like their own personal yard pool....and the 20 minutes goes by real fast.  Other advantages to doing the baths this way....

For those who are really pinching pennies (like us), this provides a way to use less water, thus using less clay.  In this bath I used 1 cup of dry clay to about 40 gallons of water.  I feel like the potency is probably about the same as being in a regular bathtub. The depth of the water is higher, so more of the body is submersed in the clay water.  Of course this would only work well for small children who can fit in the container easily.  Submersing the whole body was something that I had a hard time getting the boys to do in the regular tub.  They always wanted to sit up straight, leaving the whole top half of their body out of the water.

I use the lid that came with this container to cover up the clay water after the bath. I haven't used this method for very long and it's easy to see the outsides of the container bulging out from the weight of the water.  I imagine this will not hold for months and months.  I think what might work very well is a cattle watering trough.  They are plastic, round, sturdy tubs that are much more durable than this little container.  I just need to find one.....probably can get one at Tractor Supply Co. Anyway, I just thought I'd share this story about our adventures with clay.  Have a great day! Mother of two feisty boys - Hallie G. P.S.  For toddlers an ice chest works well – see below.

   

Clay Bath Results in 6 Year old with 95 Percentile Heavy Metals
My boy, Noah, is 6, and regressed after his MMR. Sadly, I had a flu shot during pregnancy (convinced by my OB) and Noah had all his vaccines and the MMR was the last straw for him. The heavy metals (a slew of them) in his body measure in the 95th-100th percentile. Although many have stated clay has mercury in it, I have done my research and know your clay is pure- also there is a gentleman with a wealth of knowledge on the Yahoo CK2 group (Steve I think is his name) that promotes the clay as well. Noah has "toxic encephalopathy" and we have been using the clay to detox for quite some time. Sadly, on his birthday this year, Feb 3, he had brain and orbital surgery to remove abscesses that quite frankly came out of the blue - some say it is similar to what a progressive sinus infection can do but he had no symptoms of such - got a headache, was admitted for swelling around the eye and a few days later a second CT scan (at my insistence) revealed an intracranial epidural abscess (a deadly condition) in addition to the orbital one (around the eye). He was rushed to Johns Hopkins for immediate surgery....I am still suffering the trauma of it all...so is Noah. His Traumatic Stress Disorder has returned to it's heightened state (began a year ago when he was abused in a pre-school program) and he is severely anxious.

Anyway, we have a phenomenal physician/pediatrician who is also a DAN doc and says Noah is not autistic although you would have thought so at 14 months when he "slipped away" and we have been healing him bio medically since then. He's made tremendous progress - all but his lack of speech. He was chelating with TD-DMSA with awesome results along with your awesome clay. Because the hospitals didn't "approve" of many of his meds and because he was/is so fragile, he is not using the DMSA right now, just the clay baths which show immediate results! He is happier, eye contact improves, relatedness and engagement are increased...on and on....he is a very sick lil man biomedically and I thank God your clay is there  to help him. - Mary Ann M.

Clay Bath Detox – Free of Metals
I’m a little excited, I got my hair analysis back and I am toxin free. I have NO toxins; no lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium and so on. Here is a plug for clay, not that it needs it, but it does work.  I was so excited that I want to tell everyone that it does work. I don’t know when I started and was not faithful. But still the only thing I attribute it to is the clay. I ate the clay both ways, liquid and hydrated. I also took baths quite often in clay; love how it relaxes me and helps me sleep. I did brush my teeth with it too and still do some but not always. As to how often I will tell you I was on and off all the time. It was not an everyday thing mostly because it had to be right in front of me to remember it. LOL. The results of the toxin free was bonus knowledge for me. And the only thing I can attribute it to is the clay as I did nothing else to clear up toxins. And by the way my pH was great too. I also was not lacking in enzymes. I too must tell you that I am delving into RIGHT eating. I am 90% raw food and 10% cooked food eater. So I am sure these things added to my results except for the toxin free result. - Jean

Removing Heavy Metals
I wanted to relay some information on my experience with a journey to remove heavy metals from my body. Some background is necessary to understand my health status. 10 years ago I suffered from a major health crisis and was diagnosed with microscopic ulcerative colitis, I had lost 25 pounds and weighed 97 pounds. The treatment prescribed was steroids. My mom had heard of a homeopathic practitioner in our area and I decided to go to see her, before starting the traditional medical treatment. It took 3 years; but, subsequent colonoscopies have never picked up the colitis and traditional doctors have said that there must have been a mistake in my original diagnosis. Since then, I have made homeopathy my official and first line of action for illness. My practitioner has always told me that I had a huge toxic burden to my body, and the many strategies that I have tried, have never impacted the high metal levels. One day in Sept 08, my practitioner told me that if I could not get my toxic levels down that I would most assuredly develop cancer at some point. She suggested a sauna treatment which is costly and time consuming. So I left the office disheartened that no matter what I tried, I could not impact those levels.

That same day, I went to a new health food store, and while standing in line, I noticed a magazine with an article about detoxing. It mentioned several books and Perry's book, Living Clay and talked about how one could detoxify the body with the use of clay. I went home read the article and ordered Perry's book. Next, I ordered the clay and began taking it at the end of Sept. 08. I have taken clay baths about one time per week and have taken clay internally daily since Sept. My recent hair analysis shows that I have had significant reductions in my heavy metals. I went from the 80th percentile in total toxic representation to the 64th percentile. This is after 5 months on the clay. Even my
homeopathic practitioner was stunned as she has never seen my levels go anywhere but up. Clay was not my only treatment, I combine it with eating almost all organic fruits and vegetables. I also eat over 50% raw. Additionally, I take several supplements to assist with detoxing.

This long story is to tell people that detoxing can be done without huge expense. I have the data and testing to prove that clay is an amazing product to use in the detoxification process and seems to help everything else I was doing. I'm so thankful I found clay! - Justine

9/11 Clay Bath Detox
Want to give an update on the clay baths in regards to detoxing my husband from 9/11 toxins. We are amazed at how the clay baths are working! We know they're working merely by the fact that there is less and less black sediment appearing in the bottom of the tub with each bath :) We're using 2 clay baths a week. It also makes us feel so much cleaner and softer than we ever have before. - Georgene

Colon, Bowels, Stomach and Digestion

Digestive Problems
My boyfriend, age 50, has had digestive problems for about 30 years. He has tried EVERYTHING. Yes, EVERYTHING doctors and all kinds of health practitioners recommended, including all kinds of diets for extended periods of time. The clay worked!!!! He sipped on it throughout the day for about 1 week. Sometimes he mixes it with a green drink to make a "creamy cocktail." Halleluja! - Alexsandra B.

Acid Reflux Testimonial from a Nurse
I just wanted you to know that you have helped yet another person in a most magnificent way! The liquid clay is second to none for helping people with any kind of digestive problems, but especially Acid Reflux, I am a nurse and have given it to several people with this problem and they all beg me for more. Thanks again. - Lori H.

20 Years of Acid Reflux Stopped With Clay
I have suffered 20 years with acid reflux. Nothing worked. Your book, Living Clay, and clay saved my life! Thank God! Life was nothing but pain, no sleep, no food, just burning and suffering. I am so blessed. You saved me and I love you. I wonder how many your knowledge has saved. I am living proof. I would tell everyone, believe, it works! In my case Mercury fillings from childhood had poisoned me. Clay removed this and helped with anemia. You are doing something wonderful. Never stop! – Lisa C.
 

Acid Reflux – Off Prilosec
I started eating clay to get rid of reflux and heartburn.  That took 4 months to get off Prilosec.  I kept on eating it because I kept feeling better and better.  One and 1/2 years later...yum, give me more clay...it cures what ails you, in its own time.  May take a while but you didn't get in your present shape over night. With my lymphatic drainage therapy and the clay I'm enjoying pill free and pain free golden years with strong hard finger nails (added bonus) as I am 57. - Jacq P.

Heartburn/Acid Indigestion
I’m very skeptical about new products, but I’m quickly becoming a believer in Living Clay.  I’ve suffered with heartburn and indigestion for years and years, and have been using Prevacid as needed – usually 2-3 times a week.  Last week, I ran out of my Prevacid, and had a nasty case of heartburn late at night.  My wife brought me some of her liquid clay. I tried it, and almost instantly the heartburn was gone.  I’m a believer in results, and this stuff gets results. - Phillip E.

Acid Reflux Disease
I was introduced to Calcium Bentonite Clay by my brother.  I was suffering from Acid Reflux Disease so bad that it caused me to have an automobile accident.  My chest hurt so much that I and the EMT's thought I was having a heart attack.  I was taken to the VA Hospital and hospitalized for 3 days.  It took me a month to recover from 2 broken ribs and muscle damage in my back.  My primary care physician at the VA Hospital put me on Ranitidene.  It didn't work so he doubled the dosage.  This still didn't work.  I asked my doctor about taking the clay because I had thrown up at least once a day 5 of the last 7 days.  The day before I started taking the clay I had thrown up 4 times.  I asked him about the clay he said he could not recommend it.  I even gave him some literature to read.  He said he would read the literature when he had time.  I have not had any symptoms of the acid reflux disease for 2 months.  I also use the soap to shower with wash my hair with and it is the softest, fullest and most manageable that it has ever been.  I even give myself a facial once a week.  My daughter-in-law uses the soap and does a facial 3 times a week and she had beautiful skin to begin with.  She also uses the Rejuvenation Cream.  She also uses the soap on my grandchildren and the Body Lotion on her baby. - Steve M.

Best Product for Acid Reflux
I thought you would like to know how much I am impressed with this product and it's many benefits.  I suffer from occasional acid reflux and I keep a 16 oz. glass bottle filled with liquid living clay in my refrigerator for those occasional attacks.  Each and every time I have had an acid reflux attack and have ingested about 2 ounces or more of liquid living clay, the pain subsided in a relatively quick period of time.  I have had more success in treating acid reflux with this product than anything else I have tried and I plan to continue to use living clay for this problem.   

Also, I have excessively oily skin which tends to break out from time to time and living clay masks do an excellent job to improve the condition of my complexion. Thank you for providing such an amazing, multi-purpose product. – Marcia B.

Candida and Digestion
My digestion & fungal infection (Candida) continue to heal. I am still taking 12T total liquid living clay daily (3 - 4T doses), eating locally & seasonally, & following Body Ecology Diet (with a few exceptions). - Gennifer J.

Gas and Bloating
My family and I started taking 2 oz of clay twice a day( the detox dose) in Oct. of 2005. We also started our son on clay baths once daily for 2 weeks in the hopes that we would see some improvement in his autistic behavior.

I've been suffering with a severe gas problem for over 10 years. My stomach would get very bloated and I would also have pockets of gas throughout other areas of my body.  My husband could push in my back, legs, arms, neck, head and feet and I would belch. I would also belch if I gave my husband a back rub.  I would be bloated whether or not I ate. I was often so tired and week from the gas that I could do no more than lay on the floor. My bowel movements were quite irregular. I had dark spots on my face and my feet were dry and rough. That about covers the bad news.  Now for the good news.  After taking the clay for a month I noticed little white rice like specks in my stools. After some research I found out they were parasite larva which I'm told are expelled after you expel the parasites themselves. I continued to see the larva for 4 months until they disappeared. The gas and bloating problem is practically non existent and as of this time my bowel movements have improved to 3 per day. The dark spots on my face have gone away and my husband says my feet are as soft as cotton.

We had a Reverse Osmosis water filter system. We found that it makes the water acidic. In our case Ph 4.0. We found that by putting 1/8 tsp. clay powder into 1 qt. water that it raised the Ph to 8.0. Alkaline water is much better for your health. I put the hydrated clay on a cyst that appeared under my arm while I was fasting and it disappeared that evening. It also acted as a deodorant. After brushing my teeth with it they are 2 shades whiter. My mother has been taking clay for 3 months and it is improving her blood pressure and blood sugar levels. My mother, mother in-law and I have all seen improvement in our hair and we all lost weight. As for our son we noticed an improvement in him being able to process his thoughts and convey them.  His skin is clearer and his bowel movements are easier. His memory has improved and he falls asleep better. My husband was always very healthy but he does complain that his hair and nails grow to fast now. I think his hair is getting a lot darker because it was starting to gray. - Deborah & Quintin 

Gastric Distress from Ulcer
I just read the book on clay cures by Perry A., even read it to my husband, who has frequent episodes of gastric distress from an ulcer. We decided to give clay a try, the next time he had a problem, I gave 2 oz. to him. His problem resolved within moments, to our great relief. Then, a few nights ago, I ate more greasy food than I should have.  I had my gall bladder removed several years, and the doctor told me to go easy on fried foods.  It's not usually a problem, since I eat very little fried foods.  When I overdo the greasy foods (which has only happened a few times!) I can hardly move for the horrible abdominal pain.  Well, after the success with my husband, as soon as I began to feel discomfort in my lower abdominal region, I decided to try a swig of the clay solution, too, and very shortly, no more discomfort! - Jo Ann A.

Colonics and Clay Cleanse
I am writing to let you know how the clay has changed my life and also the lives of my clients. I have been a colon hydro therapist for 6 years now. I started by drinking the clay myself several days before my "spring cleansing"   followed by my usual psyllium husk regimen I went in for my cleanse --and what came out was amazing. Ropes of muciod plaque. Now whenever my clients are preparing for their cleanse I make sure they drink the clay. Everyone including myself actually just stays drinking the clay. I am now up to 3 ounce 3 times per day and I have never looked or felt better. I would recommend this product to any colon therapist that wants the best for their clients. It’s the safest and most effective way to eliminate that old toxic waste. Just doing a colonic is not always enough!! - Vanessa G.

Cleansing Black Gunk and Weight Loss
Every week I go for colonics and drink my clay every day...anywhere from 8 -12 ounces with a lot of water through the day. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS SINCE JULY. (Received September 30th) Well, on Tuesday, black stuff came out. I have been vegetarian 30 years , have fasted on lemon juice and honey for 10 days, take epsom salts for 30 years... and never have had this happen...this is the old carbon stuff. I am sure this will go on for awhile. I am 51 years old have always been chunky,  never thin and my belly and bloat are now going away. My work IS  in the Holistic field, Medical Massage Therapist, Certified Herbalist and Aromatherapist and gluten free and vegetarian and never have I had results like this. I work with a colonist and will be massaging at her business. It is giving back to others and help them achieve good health. Your wealth is your health. - Sharon W.

Bowel Movements
I definitely have more bowel movements drinking 1 to 2 ounces of clay a day. - Heidi F.

Clay Regulated My BM’s
I am a new user of clay. I was having problems going to the restroom #2 and a friend of mine introduced me to this product. I started taking it on Saturday 2x’s a day liquid, by Monday I went to the restroom and every day since. –Gina G.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I
was recently turned on to living clay by a co-worker who swore by it.  Of course, I was skeptical; and, of course, I thought she was loony!  However, I was diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), and the only hope that the doctor offered was to take Imodium to stop the diarrhea and then take fiber (amount unknown of course) to help bind.  Needless to say, this was an unending cycle that was not working; plus I dislike taking any medicine unless absolutely necessary.  Knowing I had nothing to lose since my co-worker hadn’t died yet from drinking clay J, I tried it.  And the rest as they say is history.  The IBS is under control – not cured, mind you – but under control; I don’t have that constant “sick” feeling w/severe gas pains, and I haven’t had to take Imodium since regularly drinking clay.  Truly is great stuff and the best part is that it’s natural. - Vivian B.

Better Bowel Movements
After having major surgery (colorectal cancer), I had 20 bowel movements plus a day - it was horrible.  I have a tendency toward colitis anyway. I’m a teacher of small children so you can understand how that could impact my day! Well, I read about the clay and thought why not give it a try.  My stools bulked up and I now only have from 3-5 bowel movements which are so much bigger, better, and less painful - in fact they are not painful at all.  The clay and the directions that Perry A gave in her book has been a God send to me. I’ve been using the clay for about 6 months and I’m sure I will use it for the rest of my life. - Rene A.

Loose Bowels
My husband uses the clay and his loose bowels have corrected and he reports more volume as well. We're fans! - Andrea B.

Crohn's Disease
The clays I've had the best luck with for my crohn's thus far are any type safe for internal use that SWELL. Now I wouldn't say this to any crohnnies out there who have stricturing in their gut, as the potential for a partial or total blockage is high. These clays work for me as I no longer have any stricturing after a surgery 8 years ago that removed a foot of strictured small intestine & cecum. Currently, I've had problems confined to the large intestine that respond quite well to clays. I believe they do a great job to remove all the excess water, mucus, and bacteria in the gut. I'm thrilled to have found a natural product that helps to control some of the difficult symptoms of this disease.  - Mike Y.

Very Clean Colon in 4-5 Days Showed on CT Scan 
I have an individual in the office who was having problems sleeping and went to the medical community for help.  After giving her a complete physical and finding nothing "out of sorts", they decided MRI (from the top of her head to mid-chest) to see if it would show anything.  Well it did...but it was not associated with what they were looking for...!  They found an enlarged lymph node next to her heart by the aorta.  She was told they wanted to check it out in another two weeks...well needless to say she was terrified...!!! 

She came and talked to me and I immediately told her to order some of the Living Clay powder which she did!  Linda mailed her some over night to hold her over until her order arrived.  I instructed her how to use it...she bathed in it and drank it for about 4 or 5 days before she was scheduled for her CT (from the bottom of the head to lower abdomen). 

The doctor wanted the same radiologist who read the MRI to read the CT and had to wait a few days before calling her with the results.  The Doctor started out saying they now thought it was just an inflamed lymph node because it was smaller from when they first had seen it in the MRI.  Then the doctor asked if she had been taking Pepto Bismal...curious at to what initiated the question...my friend said no...Why do you ask?  The doctor said the CT showed the entire intestinal track was lined with something like Pepto Bismal...!!!  My friend then said she had been drinking calcium bentonite clay!  The doctor said she had heard about it, what it was and to keep taking it because it is good for you...!!!  Now you can come to your own conclusion but personally, knowing what I know...seeing what I have seen...I personally feel the clay immediately started to reverse the problem with the lymph node...and I think the doctor did as well but since she is a mainstream doctor, and a military one too...I feel she couldn't give the real reason as to what had occurred with my friends health...!!!! - Dan R.

Colon Polyp Disappears
I started using the Living Clay about 6 months after my wife, Linda.  Of course seeing what it was doing for Linda was proof enough for me (I guess one would say I am a bit skeptical and half to see results).  I lost my father to cancer and then my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer and beat it after having surgery.  Her doctor said her children should be checked out no matter what our ages so 3 years ago I went in for the dreaded colonoscopy and I had a polyp they said could turn to cancer so they said to come back in three years (this year).  I recently had my second colonoscopy and I was clean...!!!  I completely attribute this to the living clay but some might think otherwise! - Dan R.

Detox, Cleanse & pH

Toxin Free Hair Analysis
I am a little excited, I got my hair analysis back and I am toxin free. I have NO toxins like lead, mercury, cadmium and so on. I started with clay baths to help me with a pinched nerve and did it ever help. So I did a lot of baths and still do.
I ate the clay both ways liquid and hydrated. I also took baths quite often in clay. Love how it relaxes me and helps me sleep. I did brush my teeth with it too and still do some but not always. As to how often I will tell you I was on and off all the time. It was not an every day thing mostly because it had to be right in front of me to remember it. LOL I got the hair analysis because I am trying to do some hormone balancing. I still have hot flashes even after 7 years of menopause. The results of the toxin free test was a bonus knowledge for me. And the only thing I can attribute it too is the clay as I did nothing else to clear up toxins. And by the way my PH was great too. And something else he did for me was too test my saliva in the morning right after I had drank some lemon juice. If it went up to 8 it meant that my enzymes were doing a great job. I was not lacking in enzymes. I too must tell you that I am (recently in last 6 years) delving into RIGHT eating. I am 90% raw food and 10% cooked food eater. So I am sure these things added to my results except for the toxin free result. I don't believe one needs to take any medicine when there is so much out there naturally to help. I am not on any medication and am 55 years young. I hope this helps. - Jean P.

Parasites & Age Spots
Just wanted to share an interesting experience I had today. I have seen a homeopathic practitioner for 10 years now. Today, I shared the fact that I was using clay internally daily and taking clay baths. She showed me some clay tablets she prescribes for parasites. I feel so comfortable with the fact that she approved my clay use since I have trusted her for some years now. Additionally, she noticed the spots on my hands and told me how my liver was being detoxed. What a great confirmation! I also had a hair analysis re-done and hope to share the good news that my toxic load has decreased in several weeks. - Justine F.

Heavy Metal Detoxing
I wanted to relay some information on my experience with a journey to remove heavy metals from my body. Some background is necessary to understand my health status. 10 years ago I suffered from a major health crisis and was
diagnosed with microscopic ulcerative colitis, I had lost 25 pounds and weighed 97 pounds. The treatment prescribed was steroids. My mom had heard of a homeopathic practitioner in our area and I decided to go to see her, before starting the traditional medical treatment. It took 3 years; but, subsequent colonoscopies have never picked up the colitis and traditional doctors have said that there must have been a mistake in my original diagnosis. Since then, I have made homeopathy my official and first line of action for illness. My practitioner has always told me that I had a huge toxic burden to my body, and the many strategies that I have tried, have never impacted the high metal levels. One day in Sept 08, my practitioner told me that if I could not get my toxic levels down that I would most assuredly develop cancer at some point. She suggested a sauna treatment which is costly and time consuming. So I left the office disheartened that no matter what I tried, I could not impact those levels.

That same day, I went to a new health food store, and while standing in line, I noticed a magazine with an article about detoxing. It mentioned several books and Perry's book, Living Clay and talked about how one could detoxify the body with the use of clay. I went home read the article and ordered Perry's book. Next, I ordered the clay and began taking it at the end of Sept. 08. I have taken clay baths about one time per week and have taken clay internally daily since Sept. My recent hair analysis shows that I have had significant reductions in my heavy metals. I went from the 80th percentile in total toxic representation to the 64th percentile. This is after 5 months on the clay. Even my
homeopathic practitioner was stunned as she has never seen my levels go anywhere but up. Clay was not my only treatment, I combine it with eating almost all organic fruits and vegetables. I also eat over 50% raw. Additionally, I take several supplements to assist with detoxing.

This long story is to tell people that detoxing can be done without huge expense. I have the data and testing to prove that clay is an amazing product to use in the detoxification process and seems to help everything else I was doing. I'm so thankful I found clay! - Justine

Hairstylist Gets Relief from Chemical Exposure
I would like to tell you that I go to an herbalist that does muscle testing on me.  As a hairstylist I am around chemicals all the time.  Before I started drinking clay I tested very poorly for solvent toxins and since I have started drinking and wearing clay I have almost none left in my system.  I start off in the morning with my clay and end my day with my clay, I love it. - Sharon G.

End-Stage Liver Disease and Living Clay
Just wanted to share a wonderful Living Clay testimony. My niece has End-Stage Liver Disease and is awaiting a liver transplant. I had the Living Clay sent to her four weeks ago. Her ammonia level was 157, and last week's blood work showed a level of 93. Also, best news -- her HepC has become inactive during this time. The Clay is the only thing she is doing different, so we totally attribute it to that and her strong faith and will to live. She takes Clay baths twice a day -- she covers her body with a Clay mask, allows it to dry and then gets into a bath. The severe body itching has subsided. She also makes a poultice over her liver area with Clay and covers with the Miracle II Gel. - Elaine S.

Detox, Cleanse and pH Balance
As a Nutritional Microscopist, I have the unique perspective of seeing how any & all changes to me & my clients affect us on a cellular level. I can go into numerous reasons why that is the most important indicator of anything related to one’s health but I will save that for another time.

Suffice it to say, I can look at the blood after fasting & see a disorganization of cells. After the individual takes a supplement or food, I can look again to see what kind of changes have occurred.  The type of change is the ultimate indicator of the positive or negative impact on the body.

I say that to say this, every cell in our bodies is created by our red blood cells & the health of our red blood cells determines the health of every cell & thus our entire body. If I have a client that comes to me with a diagnosis from an oncologist saying that he has intestinal cancer for instance, I know that it only takes about 2 weeks to turn over every cell in the intestines. If we go about fixing this problem from the typical American stand point of poor nutrition, radiation & acidic drugs then it will take months for a chance of “curing” the cancer, with no guarantee of success or that it won’t come back. I, on the other hand, would have the client use clay to cleanse, alkalize & heal the bowels & the entire body & use chlorophyll or plant blood to build new healthy cells. In 2 weeks every cell could be regenerated as a brand new healthy cell and the cancer could be virtually gone. Of course, this is a simplified example of a more in depth situation. However, it shows the basic point that clay & chlorophyll, assuming that we are dealing with the best quality products for the best results, are crucial to any & all health concerns no matter how big or small.

Health comes from four main protocols.  First, cleansing & detoxifying the bowels & other filter/elimination organs of the body.  Second, providing the body the proper nutrients to do it’s job of building new healthy cells & meeting the needs of the body to heal itself & perform all the other functions of life.  Third, super hydrating the body with electron saturated water.  Fourth, getting regular exercise to help deal with stress, increase oxygen levels & remove waste. You can’t do it on part of the equation, you need all these components. Quality is just as important as the how of the equation. That is why I only use the very finest calcium Bentonite clay from The Living Clay Company. - Jason F.

Detox Success Measured by Iridology
I am pleased to say that the clay has really been cleaning things up for me. Let me explain a bit. I have been awakened to the holistic way and natural remedies for 6 1/2 years now. With some health issues which has held up some of the progress, I have been cleansing (Colon) off and on as issues would permit change in diet etc. Each time I would cleanse I would see change in the eye, (iridology) but it would only get so clean. My naturopath would check periodically and I also as I have taken every study course he had to offer, iridology being one of them. Any way I have only been taking clay since Jan. and I just had a eye check with him and I told him I had been detoxing. When he looked at the eye pictures he could see how clean and clear they are. My iris' now look better than ever, he said. “I guess you have! Keep doing what you are doing.”  I said I will.

I have been taking 1-2 ounces of the liquid clay premix daily and 2 clay baths a week using 2 cups of Living Clay per bath and soaking a good 20 minutes.  I am detoxing this way for heavy metals. I had (mercury) amalgams.  I still have about half way to go. My sleep has improved too! I don't seem to wake up for long periods of time very much anymore.  I look forward to see how I could finish my healing process maybe quicker with this toxic burden being straightened out. I thank God for his guidance to clay and other great helps and products etc. along the way. - Virginia C.

Cleansing the Colon with Living Clay
I started with 3 tablespoons of hydrated clay, 3 times a day with plenty of water. The first two weeks was sluggish with a small amount of plugs that passed easily enough. It was the 3rd and 4th weeks when the serious plugs and black mass passed through. This is when I cut back to 1 tablespoon, twice a day because it was so painful. Constipation. I have given myself 5 enemas because this fecal matter was so hard (like a plug). What came out with one of the enemas was almost black and at least a foot long; twice in the same day!  So there's no doubt in my mind that I have been getting rid of some really old nasty gunk. - Linda C.

High Mercury Detoxing
My chronic inflammation is greatly reduced and I no longer feel like I am on the brink of madness. I started having problems about 4 years ago when I was in the navy, during a period of low vitamin d/ high mercury exposure through corroding amalgam fillings, numerous vaccinations, and consumption of lots of sushi. I started taking high dose vitamin D (8000 IU per day) a few months ago which seemed to help my thyroid some, but wasn't addressing the bigger problem of mental dysfunction and hyperactive immune system. I had a lot of the symptoms of mercury toxicity, inability to concentrate, severe mood swings, shooting pains anywhere in the body, pins and needles sensations, creepy crawly feelings, chronic fatigue, delusional thinking, mild hallucinations. Also, attempting chelation through Alpha Lipoic Acid and naturopathic formulations from my doctor made the symptoms a lot worse, which is another reason I think I have mercury in my system. After my first clay bath I had a  lot of shooting pains, twitching muscles, and creepy crawlies, which would indicate mobilization of mercury. I've done 4 clay baths now and the symptoms are greatly reduced. My chronic inflammation is less severe now too. No, I haven't done a test, but from what I've read most tests are not good at detecting mercury, and all the symptoms consistently point to mercury. - Aaron E.

Adding Clay Did the Trick
I have done the Master Cleanse, taken oregano, colloidal silver and a variety of other things over the last few years, but something was still lacking. While I wasn’t sick, I just didn’t feel alive. Just dragging along from day to day. I can’t believe how much better I feel after only 3 days. Nothing has changed in my life, other than adding clay to my diet.  - Debbie B.

Multiple Cleansing Benefits
I had suffered from so many different things from high blood pressure to high blood sugar to obesity and lupus-like symptoms. I was always tired and felt like I was dying. Chronic pains in my feet and joints, headaches and I caught every cold and flu it seemed. I also had rough skin on my feet and lived with yeast infections monthly. I had hot flashes and would feel dizzy and had ear ringing. Not to mention acne at 42. I couldn't sleep well and I had sleep apnea. I also had constant gas. Plus I was obese. I started off by not drinking or cooking with fluoridated water as I found out how deadly it really is. It took a lot of symptoms away. The gout, the pain in the joints, and I slept a little better and my blood pressure went down some. Then I came across your page about clay. I bought some powdered clay and I drank it in 16 oz. water on empty stomach once a day. The first dose I have to admit cleaned out my intestines so well green plaque came out. Yuk. I was shocked that was in me. I had no idea it could work so well so fast. Within about an hour I started feeling like I did when I was younger. Later that day I noticed my eye whites were so white and I never seen it that way ever. Unless I used eye drops. Well I started taking Epsom salt, clay half cup each and one tablespoon baking soda baths. I would soak for half an hour three times a week. My rough skin cleared up and after a month I noticed I no longer slept fitfully and I stayed asleep with no more snoring. My blood pressure is now normal. I am overweight but not obese now. Borderline. The weight fell off of me so fast my skin from my stomach touches my thighs. However I didn't diet or restrict my food intake. I no longer suffer from gas unless I eat beans and the acne is gone completely. No more hot flashes I still get colds but I use my clark zapper that I made myself and within twenty minutes my cold symptoms are gone. I took thirty drops of black walnut hull tincture once a day with 8 oz. water for one week then once a week after that and I no longer have high blood sugar. It is normal now. All the other symptoms disappeared other than occasional pains when it turns cold or rains. I also now use it on my scalp as I always had dandruff and sores on my scalp. No more. When I use the clay as a mask my skin gets so much tighter its like I lost years off my face immediately. It stays tight and smooth and I don't see the little crows feet anymore at all. I continue on the baths three days a week and the internal daily. - Lisa

Eyes

Clay for Vision, Birthmark and Skin Care
I am 67 years old and began taking clay orally on December 1 year 2010. The amount I used was full rounded teaspoon of brown clay from a local store, in half glass of water upon awaking in the morning and at 7:00 p.m. after eating a light meal at evening (usually I don't eat after that at night). I did it for 60 days. While doing that I noticed being less tired, more energetic, more joyfulness, and much more strength while dancing (I dance once in a week for one hour folk dancing), while swimming 1 Km every day at morning and when walking. About this time I was introduced to Living Clay from a friend and began using it. Seeing the benefits of taking clay orally I decided to try it for curing a birthmark on my face, so after 100 days I began using it on my face.  In the morning I drank one full teaspoon of clay twice a day. I soaked the clay in water for 24 hours before drinking it. I also began using the clay on my face twice a day in the morning and in the evening. About 3 weeks ago, after having many remarks on how my face was looking younger and that the birth mark was much improved, I decided to put the clay also on my eyes for about 30 minutes, so in the morning I put the clay on my face and one eye for half and hour then washed my face then put again on face and other eye for 30 minutes. I noticed after 3 weeks that I did not need glasses to read newspaper and lately I stopped using glasses when in front of computer screen or when reading books and newspapers. Another important thing, before using clay on my face I used to get my face cleaned every two weeks by a special women who cleaned it thoroughly to remove black heads that I had on my face, When these spots were removed each time a white matter was coming from under it. About 2 weeks after using the clay on my face, the woman who came to clean my face was astonished to note that my face was clean and didn't need treatment any more.

My wife also had a very good experience with using clay. She had dermabrasion on her face.  About year after that Wounds (scarring) arose on her face. The scarring was so ugly that she couldn't go out of the home because she felt uneasy to meet people who constantly asked about what happened to her. She began medical treatments including antibiotics and additional special pills to fight the wounds. It took two months of treatments until the wounds were cured. About a year later the wounds appeared again. Now being familiar with the clay power I suggested she use clay. She didn't believe that the clay would help but as she felt she must do something to heal the wounds she began the clay treatment. About a week after the start of using clay the wounds were healed. Now she does not miss any day to spread clay on her face, and she advocates using it to everybody!!

My 80 year old brother who is also reading the newspaper with aide of eye glasses has begun using clay over his face and eyes to fight a cataract. About week later as he was reading the newspaper when he also noticed that he does not need his glasses any more.  These experiences have quickly spread to other brothers and now clay is a family thing. - David G.

Itching Eyes
When I get allergies my eyes itch like crazy and water.  I have tried eye wash and over the counter products and even a cream my eye doctor recommended, but nothing works like clay.  I close one eye tightly and cover the entire eye with the topical creamy Living Clay paste for 15 minute periods and wash it off.  Then I do the other eye the same way. The irritation is gone and the watery itching stops.  15-20 minutes to relief. Thank you for Living Clay. - Mary T.

Pinkeye Cleared in One Day
I started developing pink eye a few days ago--my eyes were red and oozy (sorry to gross anyone out...I won't get too graphic!).  I made myself a clay rinse for my eyes, just water and clay, and splashed in my eyes several times.  I couldn't believe, the redness decreased immediately, and more ooze started to come out every time I rinsed.  It was like all the yucky stuff was pulled out at once, my eyes burned a little, but not bad, I could tell I was getting better.  The next day my eyes were fine. I didn't have to go to the doctor for a dumb eye exam to get the medicine.  The clay is amazing.  Absolutely amazing--it saved me so much money. – Diana P.

Sty
I had a sty in my eye last week, for the first time in I don't know how many years, I had some kind of cold, and I think it caused the sty too. I decided to try to draw it out a little with the clay, which I am also taking internally. I cleaned my eye very carefully, and used coconut oil for moisturizing, and then patted on a little clay paste, keeping below my lower lash line, and slept with that on. I did it for a few nights, and I think it really did reduce the irritation. - Mary Beth

Cataracts
An 82 year old lady was resignedly waiting for her cataract to ‘ripen’ before undergoing surgery. Then she agreed to try application of clay poultices. It has been a year since it last bothered her. This improvement had been witnessed by her oculist. - From

General Health

So Easy To Take Clay
I have to laugh when I think about how my clay usage has changed over the past year. In the beginning, I carefully measured out my liquid clay by the tablespoon, and I would mix it gingerly with some type of juice. Now, I just take the original bottle that I keep my liquid clay in and I drink from it straight from bottle to mouth. No mixing with juices and no measuring...no piddling around. Well, I guess you could say it's measured in "gulps" now. 

Keep eating your clay.....on an empty stomach....on a full stomach....any way you can. It's a good thing. - H. Gage

Migraine Relief and Energy with First Dose
Well I have to tell you.... I took my first clay last night at 10 pm....drank water thru the night....each time I woke up....at 6am I woke up with a horrific migraine....like USUAL....and at about 45minutes later went to the bathroom (the clay is working WOW ) and my migraine was instantly GONE!! 7am I’m putting on my makeup and now at 7:13am I’m emailing you with so much energy IM SOLD!!!!! EVERYONE NEEDS CLAY!!!!!! OMG I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS!!!! THANKYOU - Christie B.

Sickly No More
Growing up, every year I would get sick.  The flu, a cold etc.  I haven't been sick it over 2 years now...not even a common cold!!  I look back now at what I'm doing differently now and one major thing I have added is the clay!  I have always been healthy...I eat a strict diet and exercise regularly but if I'm around anyone that is sick, I would almost always catch it.  My skin looks better, and my bowels work great again too and I have read that taking clay regularly actually helps soak up bacteria, fungi, and viruses!  This might be a contributor as to why I haven’t been sick?? The flu season here in Canada can be pretty nasty...especially this time of year. – Kevin A.

Thirteen Year Illness Gone After a Month on Clay
I am turning 25 in just a few days and have been taking the clay internally three times a day for a month now. I have been sick on and off for 13 years and the traditional doctors could never find a cure for me. I had just accepted that I had a sickly body and a weak immune system. I had bald spots and began fainting at the age of 12, then at 20 I became nauseous all of the time. When I graduated from college, I was so sick that I needed to take some time off before obtaining my masters degree. I began researching different ways to detoxify my body. I started getting colonics, bought an infrared sauna, and eating raw food. But it was only when I started drinking a living clay Calcium Bentonite clay that I started feeling like a normal human being for the first time in 13 years!!! After 3 weeks, I had an energy surge. I started wanting to do things I hadn't wanted to do in a long, long time...simple things like take a hike with my family. This clay has given me back my passion to live my life to the fullest. Before the clay, I was sick, exhausted, and depressed. Now, I feel alive! People are even saying how good my skin looks! Like I have a glow!! I will, without a doubt, be a lifelong customer. Anytime I have any questions, I just call Perry A. and she answers my calls directly and with such kindness and grace. This clay truly saved my life. - Stephanie D.

PMS and Allergies Improve
My 28 year old daughter who is in graduate school is using the Living Clay scrub, face cream and of course drinking the clay.  PMS symptoms are minimal (she always suffered terribly with them).  She has lived her life with allergies.  She now has very few if any symptoms of these. - C. Murray

Guillaine-Barre Syndrome
I started using your clay powder a few years back when a good friend from Florida gave me some for Christmas. It has changed my well-being alot, I was diagnosed with Guillaine-Barre Syndrome just prior to using it and I personally believe that it has helped me thru that situation. I believe that I had a good amount of toxins in my body which needed to be removed before I could start the healing process. I , along with my Wife Beth have owned and operated a business in which I believe I have been subjected to all sorts of chemicals and such. I became very ill with the Guillaine-Barre and My family and I wanted to get thru this and still maintain my health. I was ingesting the clay daily, taking a clay bath 2x's a month and I believe that by doing these things along with drinking high PH water , also the higher PH clay that I have been on the right track with getting a handle on this situation. I want to say Thank You. 

Thru-out this event I had met many people in aquatic therapy and turned them on to the clay. I hope you don't mind, it’s not too often that I come across a product that can change our lives, yours does. My wife works at Community Support Program facility , a couple weeks ago, of the clients had passed away and the staff were very discouraged by this, one staff member had broken out with what appeared to be hives from the stress of the situation, going to the hospital they gave her medication and said it would have to run its course, I suggested applying the clay wash and clay moisturizer that I had been given by you folks with my last order, she applied it as directed and within 24 hours it helped significantly. She too is now a customer of yours. I will continue to tell everyone about your product, it’s the best wellness product I have ever used and again, THANK YOU. - Scott J.

Wine Hangover Gone with Clay
Hi! I don't recommend anyone make a habit of this, but I went to a party on Saturday, and decided to have a little more wine than I knew was going to be good for me, and just pay the price. But, when I got home, I took some clay before I went to bed, along with a good amount of water. When I woke up the next morning, I was better than I expected to be, and took some more clay, and felt pretty darn good all day!  - M.B. Dawson

Mental Clarity
Hello, my name is Chelsea. I'm in the 11th grade and I'll be 17 next month. I started using clay and I am now about 6 days in, drinking 2 oz in the afternoon and 2 oz in the evening. I've already noticed a huge improvement in my hardest class, Algebra 2. I'm terrible at math so the equations look like Chinese lettering to me! It takes me 4x slower than everyone else to pick up on it to be able to do the problems myself. But now after the clay, I understood new things right in one day. My concentration and motivation in school has increased as well. I have been "using the restroom" daily, haha. 

I always had a foggy feeling. I described it as "a fog coating my brain, that needs to be washed off". And I've already noticed a huge improvement. - Chelsea

Focus and Memory Recall
I’d  like to tell you how much I enjoyed your book, Living Clay. I’m new to clay – received it last week Tuesday, and began my internal regimen that evening, with 2 ounces twice a day. After six days, I’m already feeling some amazing results: more focused, better constitution, better memory/recall, sleep better, more patient and a continuous feeling of being ‘balanced’ ….. and, I also truly believe it is doing some internal healing to my finger nails – I’ve have ridges on them for many years (since I stopped wearing acrylic nails some 8 years ago) but I do believe they are finally going away!

I’m going to be 59 years old next week and I just can’t wait to try all the different ways clay can be used!!  (smile)

I’ve tried so many things over the years, and truly am amazed at the results I am experiencing with clay. I took my first clay bath this evening. I feel so relaxed, I can hardly keep my eyes open to type this note to you (grin). I will probably have the best night’s sleep I’ve had in years. Even opening the box when it arrived was a very sacred feeling for me! I felt a peace and connectedness to Mother Earth that I had not ever felt before! – Linda P.

Highly Allergic and Sensitive
I wanted to say thank you very, very much for supplying this kind of product.  I'm one of those people that is allergic to everything- including corn, and finding detoxifying and healing methods, or cleaning supplies that work as well as your products, is really difficult! I drink the liquid clay every day, and my severe reactions to perfumes seem be highly diminished. I also drink a dose right after any exposure.  My constantly toxic system feels really soothed. –Nikki F.

Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease
My son, Lani, was just home from Bates College, for a few days, to heal from Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease.  I gave him the clay to consume internally, morning and at bedtime, to apply to the itchy rashes (all over his body), and to soak in a warm tub.  He had a miraculous turnaround in just 3 days. He was cleared by the school nurse this afternoon, so is back practicing with the football team.  His rashes and the itching responded to the clay immediately.  He has also used the clay to clear up his acne with great success.  We have a sample of your clay face and body scrub, which we like, so have ordered some for myself, my 21-year-old daughter, Jamie, and for my son, Lani.  Thank you for such great and useful products! - Deb E.

Toenail Fungus Gone
I’ve known about and used calcium bentonite clay for several years. I haven’t been consistent, and yet I’ve experienced amazing results. Recently, I decided to begin a consistent program using Living Clay, consisting of  2 ounces of Liquid Clay taken internally twice a day, and at least one clay bath a week. My main objective was to gain and maintain a balanced, healthy body, and to work on ridding myself of warts and moles in particular. The other problem I knew I wanted to work on was the yellow fungus on my toes. Both my big toes had a yellow tint to the nail bed, and the toenails were rough and uneven.  

About a week ago, just before my clay bath, I decided I would start taking care of the fungus  by soaking my feet in a concentrated clay mixture. I poured the clay into a plastic container large enough to get one foot at a time in and had everything ready. I don’t really examine my feet that often, so I was very surprised to see that instead of the dingy, yellow discoloration I’d noticed weeks before, the nails were nice and smooth, the nail bed was a rosy pink and my toes looked healthier than they ever had! This, just from using the clay consistently! This stuff just keeps producing amazing results, and my body keeps getting better and better and better!

Thank you Mother Earth, for this wonderful substance, and thank you, Living Clay for providing Calcium Bentonite Clay in such a convenient, pure form! - Phillip M.

Clay Baths and Masks for Vertigo
I am 56 years old, and usually am never sick, and have never had vertigo before. We eat organic and filter our water. I normally do take daily clay, but had slipped this week before this happened due to family visiting. I had not detoxed with a clay bath in 2 weeks so it really hit me.

I would guess it would be based on what was actually causing your vertigo. I had not had any allergies, colds, or inner ear issues. No swimming, etc. However, the filters in our reverse osmosis water system had stopped functioning. Our water filter people had told us the water was safe to drink (basically we were drinking the city water we are supplied which is poisoned water), but we now know not to do this again. So we think it was just a build up of toxins. The weather was hot, and we were drinking a lot of the poisoned water thinking the filters were just slow but working.

I was too sick to do a detox bath right away--though I knew that would help immensely. I just could not get it ready. So I did drink a dose of clay in some juice. Then I put a clay mask on my face, neck and feet. I left this on for about an hour. This helped enough that I was then able to mix up the clay (2 cups of dry clay), and take a detox bath for 15-20 minutes. That evening I did another clay mask on my face only.

I then did another clay bath a few days later. I think being more aggressive with the baths and masks (face and feet) would really see quicker results, possibly a bath a day or more a day. But I did get immediate relief from the vertigo, enough after the mask that I was able to ready the bath. And the bath was a big help. No more dizziness just more feeling weak. We thank God for this clay every day! We keep the Living Clay book handy for ready use and reference. - Patty E.

Clay for Candida, Leaky Gut and Allergies
When I first did start on the clay, I was actually treating Candida - the clay took care of the leaky gut, and helped a lot with my allergies.  I have been able to take my allergy sublingual drops twice a week now instead of 7 days a week.  Because of my sensitive system I did have to limit my clay to one ounce twice a day.  Remember when I did the Candida dose in your book, it caused an out break of eczema.  Now, I am fine in that area too.  (Note from Perry A~: Diane was very sensitive and the normal Detox dose caused a Detox reaction of eczema trying to get rid of the toxins too fast. This is also a sign it is working.  So we cut back her amount and had many successes.) 

I have leaky gut - and I have been drinking living clay daily, since March of 2010. It has helped this condition, plus many more health issues that I had going on within my body. I have a very sensitive system, I had no problem with clay being added daily.

I had a blood test back in Oct. My body is now absorbing all of my supplements. Clay is a wonder and it did balance my PH. - Diane W.

Novocain Reaction
I don't have too many "WOW" moments with the natural things I use but this one kind of blew me away. I had a filling replaced last Friday. The Novocain was given in the cheek, near a nerve bundle so I felt it in my tongue and down my neck and throat.  It was hard to swallow. When the numbness wore off, I felt like I had a very bad sore throat on the opposite side and it was then difficult to swallow because of it. I felt very yucky and could not wait to get home and go to sleep. This is not like me at all. I keep a jar of clay hydrated 1:3 so it's like pudding. I took 4 or 5 teaspoons, one at a time and let each one sit in my mouth before swallowing. I was amazed that within a few minutes the throat pain was totally gone. I did not expect this quick relief. I still felt yucky for 3-4 more hours but at bedtime I felt back to my old self. My cheek hurt a bit so I put a drop of Thieves essential oil blend on the injection site and also brushed my teeth with clay.  Though the dentist said I would have discomfort for a few days, I was great with lots of energy the whole weekend. - Laurie W.

Hormones, Heavy Bleeding and Loss of Libido
Regarding my hormones: I was experiencing heavy bleedings and loss of libido for many months. I tried the medical route but didn't help, then I tried TCM and helped a bit but I was still not happy. One day I heard Paul Chek talking about clay and then I found you.  I started taking clay and in 2 to 3 months slowly the bleeding became normal and the libido came back. My body felt a lot stronger, healthier and younger. I also had many healing crisis that lasted few weeks at the time but I didn't stop taking clay although I reduced intake somewhat.  Maria T.

Chronic Pain Gone – I Now Have a Life Again
My story starts when I was introduced to the clay in February 2010.  I had been on numerous prescriptions due to a car accident and seen no relief for my chronic pain. I was so full of toxins and did not know it. Using the clay little bit at a time worked best for me. My husband thought I was completely nuts at this point. He was worried about me. What is she doing now? I had been on more prescribed meds or tried any gimmick going to help me with my situation.  So again another gimmick was worth a try for my pain was so chronic. The clay cleaned me out totally and the things that were in the toilet were totally scary. With Perry’s guidance I was able to come better educated on this clay and learn how it was helping.  I am now only on two meds once in a blue moon for migraines I get once in a blue moon as oppose to every day for the last 10 years. I have a life now since February I can see clearly now where I could not before.

My eyes were turning yellowish and I went to see my specialist in January he was concerned so he had me go back again in April. April my eyes improved no more yellowish and my site actually got better. He said keep doing what you are doing it works. He is from Egypt so I explained to him and he said AWESOME!! I see the difference.  He knows I have a strong faith with the Lord and I need to believe to see a difference. From there I brush my teeth with clay, put it o n cuts, my cats drink it in the water, I put it in my smoothies, coffee, food and wash with it.  I use it sparingly because it’s costly for me right now but I am willing to use it forever.

I had to get a piece of steel removed from my foot a few weeks ago.  I went to the hospital two days later and at the emergency dept he asked me what happened to my foot so I explained and he said how come it’s so dirty.  I had immediately covered it with the clay. He was not impressed told me never put that on an open sore again.  He cleaned it up and froze my foot operate.  He said I think I got it all out.  If it starts hurting again come back.  I went home packed clay into hole and covered it going on with my life until about 3 days into this man it started to hurt again. So my husband applied pressure to it like a pimple and out popped a big ball of pus and clay relief instantly and it healed up great never having to go back to DR. I know the clay drew anything out of the incision. It really works for me and I only pray more people could get educated about this clay. My cats I rub it on their coats and they lick it off.  I put it in the food and water they drink. They are indoor cats and are our babies. They love the clay and they trust me to give it to them.  I am doing the foot bath Perry suggested so I am excited to see the outcome I will keep you posted.

Oh I have bowls movements on regular basis now and love going it’s so comfortable and I feel so wonderful after having gone. I feel so relaxed and clean after. I could go on and on how this clay has helped me get my life back and its better than before.  My husband loves it to. I m 54 years old and I can do things I did when I was 20. I was always a horse rider/ jock/ runner/ water ski and downhill I could not for years.  Today I piled a quart of wood onto my husband’s truck in the woods for the winter. Pretty good for a gal my age.  I will never give up.  Like my youth has been restored. Thanks to my new found friend Perry whom I love and have never met yet but someday I hope to meet. My mom died two years ago and I don’t have a mom figure for advice for some things and Perry has helped me in ways she does not even know. - Sari

MRSA Infection
I used thick clay poultices 3 times a day for my 50 cent size MRSA infection/boil.  I got immediate relief from the pain and the swelling that was past my wrist. I have not needed to take any ibuprophin since, I was taking 800mg every 4-6 hrs.  I am reluctantly taking the antibiotics but feel that it was the clay that prompted my speedy healing. I still have a rather large boil but it is now draining. I am so excited about the clay!! Why are the Drs not using it? I am planning on telling as many people as I can about it! Now I am putting a bath tub in my back yard for mud baths!! Thanks again and feel free to use my testimonial. - Denise

Sound Sleep and Balanced System
I met Perry in Austin and became fast friends and I invited her to be on my New Pathway To Healing radio show. Since that show and listening to the all of the healing properties of the clay, I ordered the gallon container and have not missed one day of drinking it twice a day! It has balanced my system beautifully. I sleep through the night soundly which had been a problem for me before. People comment on how soft and wonderful my skin looks all the time. – Petey S.

On Clay Off All Meds
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and tell you the story of how I became a lover of Living Clay. One day after I had recovered from surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from my small bowel, and had returned to work at my small vintage clothing store, two women entered--mother and daughter. The mother was so kind, and offered me some vintage things of hers as a gift. I was in danger of losing my business at that point and could not consider buying anything, with the poor economy and the fact that I had been ill for months with a loss of income and of course no unemployment or benefits available to me as a self employed person. I was in a dark time of uncertainty.

This day, these two angels entered my shop, we hit it off immediately, and Mom bought some things for the daughter, much appreciated by me. The daughter had quite a rashy, blemished face, but both were really beautiful inside and out, kindness quite evident in both. Their gentle nature and kindness comforted me greatly. A few days later, they returned, this time, the daughter was wearing the lovely plaid 1970's Pendleton Skirt she had purchased with a bright red sweater. As she looked through my racks an jewel cases, Mom and I began talking. She said words that were needed to me at that time. You see, my home was in danger of foreclosure and I was very frightened about the future. This lovely Mom told me about her childhood when her father had lost employment and they, too, had to face what to do with their home. She said, her Mom, surprising to her, just took it so calmly and said, we will pack up the car with all the things we NEED. And, then move back to our family in Brooklyn, NY, where her father would surely be able to find a job. In fact, she was amazed at her mother's acceptance and strength which held the family together. She didn't care of possessions and kept it clear they must keep their spirits high but more importantly keep their family together. A calm came over her which carried the family through losing their home and everything and moving into a tiny 2 room environment in NY.

After hearing that story, a calm came over me, and I realized that things are not what matters in life. It was a gift to hear this story. Mom bought her daughter some red 1920's beads that day. Again, an appreciated sale. Then, after she had opened up to me, I opened up to her and told her of my upcoming CT scan to see if my cancer had spread. That scan was the next week and I confided that I was concerned, but felt sure I would be okay.

The next day, these two lovely people returned with a large amount of living clay. The daughter, whose face seemed clearer and less blemished, had burned a CD for me, explaining living clay and its many benefits. They instructed me to take a bath after my scan to help remove some of the radiation and toxins from my system. I did that, my scan was clean. Thank God! And, although I had no funds then to purchase the clay, they had been so generous to give me a good deal, and I used the clay once a week in a bath. It gave me a feeling of well being and energized me.

I began walking a lot, with my new energy, and although I never saw these two people again, the clay has become a "tonic" for good health for me. I have mixed it into a mud and put it on my scar from my surgery and over the last 4 months, I have seen it almost disappear! I use the clay on my swollen arthritic knees when my body was adjusting to my new exercise schedule. By morning, swelling is gone! My knees feel great and ready to go again. I use it on my swollen gums, diabetic side effects my dentist said, I use it on my face for enlarged pours, and I am looking younger than ever (if I do say so myself)!

While walking in the woods, I was bitten by a black legged deer tick, and after pulling it out and going to the doctor, I was confirmed to have lymes. I again, filled that swollen hole and bull's eye rash with living clay mud. I was tested a few week's later, and I am negative for lymes! It soon reduced the bull's eye, and the swelling and took the pain away.. I use it on a patch of psoriasis on my scalp, and it is reduced and nearly gone.

Four months after receiving the gift of clay, I have purchased it myself, (with my new found energy and attitude, my financial picture and my business also improved to a much better picture), and I continue my weekly baths with it, I have lost 40 pounds, I am free of diabetes, no longer taking pain medications, and am off all med's in fact. My doctor saw me last week and said I look more like 37 than 57 years old! He said he was amazed at how the body can repair and rejuvenate itself even though he has practiced medicine for over 40 years! The living clay in large part is responsible for the new me!

About three weeks ago, I met a woman in my store who also suffered from a cancerous small bowel tumor herself (it is quite rare, affecting only perhaps a thousand people in our country every year). What are the odd that we should meet and yet we did! I shared with her the miracle of the living clay. She just sent me an email saying she had ordered some from you company and was looking forward to her first health bath!!!

Thank you for what you do and for helping me though a rough patch with such a miraculous product! I would be pleased to be a spokesperson for you any time!  Merry Christmas! - Linda W.

Allergies, Sinuses and Achy Joints Improving
After one month, my skin feels luxurious and looks better than it has in at least a decade. My inflammation has calmed. My allergic rashes from food and environment have been reduced by at least 50%. My sinuses are clear and I’m breathing easily despite my allergy season kicking into high gear. And most importantly, I don’t ache every minute of every day. Yes, I’m still experiencing some autoimmune discomfort but I do feel better overall and I intend to keep on using the clay. I’ve suggested it to several friends and family members and they’ve all enjoyed it. I’m actually buying several of their
sample gift bags to give as gifts for the holiday season. - Carol B.

Better Skin, Hair, Sleep and No Heartburn Since Clay
I started taking clay in March of 2010. I am hypothyroid, and take snythroid medication. I took my clay 4 hours away from the meds, while on the detox dose twice a day. And two hours away from my supplements. Now, that I am done with the detox I only take the clay at bedtime. I take two ounces every night at 8:15 p.m. I am sleeping much better since I started the clay. Drink plenty of water every day, this is what pushes the toxins through your system. If you don't drink a lot of water, like 8 glasses a day, you may get bound up from the old fecal matter it pulls out. My sister did this.. she now drinks all the water and is feeling mighty fine.

I love what the clay has done for my skin and overall health. You need to pull out the toxins from the food we eat and the air we breathe. My hair has gotten healthier too. Just amazing stuff. My husband is taking the clay and no longer has heart burn, plus, his hair and skin is not as greasy... he was skeptical at first.. now he is a believer, and loves his clay too. - Diane W.

Mole, Weight Loss, Energy and Complexion
Just thought I would update you on my progress....well doing colonics, eating vegetarian for 30 years  and doing the clay since June of 09.( Received testimonial 12-1-09) . I have lost a lot of bloat I think is inflammation. On my face a mole on my chin for over 30 years fell off and others are lighting up. I have lost 10 pounds...feeling great.  My skin is younger looking...and my eyes are clearer.  What can I say?  Go clay! As a Massage Therapist in NY...PEOPLE DO NOT GET IT! In my healing work it has changed my ability to help others. Transmitting  energy is stronger, also my intuition is stronger. This is for the rest of my life. I am 51 and half.  Blessings. - Sharon W.

Under Arm Cleanse

Once a week I put a glob of hydrated clay under my arms for about 30 minutes before I shower to keep the lymph nodes healthy. I feel so clean and purified after doing the underarm clay treatment. I have to tell you I even had cystic breasts that are all clear now, so the clay may have also helped with that condition as well. - Gladys M.

Type II Diabetes
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in May of last year. They put me on Metformin 500 mg 4 times a day. For the past few months they have been really monitoring my progress, because the metformin was not doing what it was suppose to do. They had run several tests and said that I was going to have to go on shots. I asked them to let me try something first. I have been on the clay for 3 months now. They ran the same tests and show that my diabetes is doing better. They said that if I keep up with what I am doing I may be off the pills by the end of the year. Still working on it. - Kathy M.

Ingrown Toenail and Infection
I have been using the clay for about 4 years now, and I keep finding great uses for it. I love using it as a face mask and drinking it and I also use it for pain. I have been fighting ingrown toe nails for years, going months with infections that nothing seems to help.  I have tried all kinds of essential oils and ointments, but the first time I used the clay, from my clay mask jar on my toe, I was not sure what really helped.  This last time after going through the whole process again of essential oils and ointments, I used the clay on my toe and put plastic wrap on it over night.  The next morning, pain and redness were gone. I was so happy since I wanted to dance at my sons wedding that week end. I will continue use the clay as often as I need and hope to find other uses for it. - Mary Lou

Results for a Variety of Ailments – Back Problems, Sleep Issues, Dog Bite, Teeth, Skin and Nail Improvements
1) I was bitten on Sat night by a dog in the back crease of my knee. It busted 2 blood vessels and the dog has some pretty serious medical problems. I was very concerned about staph and blood clots. Started clay pack on Sunday afternoon. Happy to report that the bruise is almost down to going away. Wish I had taken pictures so you could see the progress.
2) I have been in 2 major car wrecks and have suffered severe back problems especially at night tossing in the bed and sleep apnea. I woke up Monday morning with no back pain and well rested. Did not wake myself up snoring. Same thing Tues and today, slept better than I can ever remember and more energy.
3) My girls BEG for the clay baths and I put a little clay in everything they eat to get it all through the day. My oldest and I have NEVER been early breakfast eaters but yesterday and this morning we BOTH have been hungry for breakfast. What a change! And both of us have been night owls not able to go to sleep, hers is autism and mine thyroid. The past 2 nights she begged to go to bed. WOW
4)
 My youngest has the blood disorder and does not process proteins, it effects her entire body. We are seeing changes in skin around her nails, feet, and teeth. We are brushing teeth 3x's a day with clay and a tiny bit of the tooth paste the doctor recommended. Am seeing a difference in her teeth and some spots are going away. She is feeling a lot better and not so tired all the time. We have just been overwhelmed by what we are seeing.
5)
 The doctor wanted us to take Nutritional Yeast Flakes with lots of vitamins, mineral and amino acids. We started them a month ago but did not see much of a change until we started the clay. I think the clay is changing our bodies so it is able to use the nutrition like it is supposed to. Will let you know what the outcome is at our next doctor appt.
6)
Also we home school our girls and am seeing a change in attention, awareness, etc. What a blessing!
Please let me know what you think, being so new to clay I am stunned. I have been reading all I can on the clay. God bless, Karen J.

My Top 9 Benefits from Living Clay
I've been drinking Living Clay since Feb. '09 and I feel better (internally) than I have felt in years. It has done amazing things to my body, and I'm still seeing new things as time goes by.
What it's done for me....
1. increased energy (one of the first things you notice)
2. better quality skin
3. complete disappearance of any and all acne
4. softer skin
5. more even skin tone (especially noticeable on face)
6. my oily hair and oily skin has completely disappeared
7. I feel like ALL of my organs are cleaner and much more able to extract out nutrients from food
8. a healthier, cleaner colon (that's for sure)
9. less chance of sunburn on your face (if you are regularly putting a clay mask on your face like I often do at bedtime) - Hallie G.

Taste Sensation
I was thinking about doing a clay fast. The moment I tasted clay for the first time this spring, I instinctually felt that it was supposed to be consumed by us, I felt that it was part of my own body. I used Yurba Prima, but it is rather expensive. Ever since then, I have been researching this phenomenon and trying to find a good supply of tasty clay and that's when I found Living clay, and I am extremely happy, because I found the best tasty clay that I had been looking for, right off the start! I do believe this is probably the tastiest substance, because the particles have developed a relationship between each other and work together in unison. I believe that whatever clay tastes the best to us, is what heals us the best. This is how the higher spirit takes care of our needs.
I drink about as much as I feel like drinking every day, perhaps diluting a spoon-full in a cup of distilled water, or I make it into a creamy paste and I lick it or chew it and eat it - it is delicious. I find the taste is like a subtle creamy, slightly-oily, sweet thing... nothing I can really compare to other tastes. It is what happens when you have been eating only toxic foods in your life and you try a completely toxicity-free substance and it tastes nothing like you've ever tasted before. Indeed you experience a MUCH better and superior taste sensation than ever before. - Tsetsi

Swelling Lymph Glands
About 3 months ago I noticed swelling in my armpits. My wife thought this could possibly be a reaction to something in my diet, but it is always hard to track down the source. We normally take at least 2 clay baths a week to maintain our health, as well as drinking the clay daily.  I started in ingesting the clay twice daily rather than once a day. I increased the clay baths to once daily, and we began applying a clay pack to my armpits at night. I used the Glad Press and Seal to hold the clay in place during the night. This worked very well! Within about 5 days the swelling went away, and so far, it has not reappeared.  I feel the clay stimulated the lymphatic system and addressed the toxic overload. Yea for Clay! - Chuck R.

Sinus Headaches and Digestion
I started taking clay internally a little over 2 months ago. I used 1 teaspoonful, in water, with a little lemon juice, once a day, in the morning on an empty stomach. I did this for approximately 2 weeks to see how I would react to it, there were no negative results. Then I increased the amount to 1 rounded tablespoon in water with the lemon juice and this is what I am currently doing. Since I started taking it, I immediately noticed an increase in energy. After a few weeks I noticed  that I was less conscious of my whole digestive tract, in other words, I was experiencing less gas and any kind of gastric problems (indigestion, etc.). Foods seem to digest easier and quicker, without hardly noticing. Throughout the last 8 years I have been bothered with major sinus problems. These include constant congestion and weekly bouts with sinus, pressure and headaches. The daily use of clay has helped tremendously with these and my condition continues to improve. The headaches have almost entirely been eliminated at this point. Also my health, overall has improved, my immune system seems stronger as I have not had a cold or the flu this winter. I plan on using the clay as a permanent part of my daily health program, along with eating right, supplements when necessary, and enough water and exercise. Thank-you for providing the information and safe, pure clay. I will be using it PERMANENTLY. - Tom M.

Nasty Cold
There has been a nasty cold virus going around my husband had it for a month and people I work with at least  2 weeks. I have been taking the clay, I came  down with the cold on Friday by Sunday it was gone. I know it was clay cause that’s the only thing I have been doing different. I am so happy for the clay. - Linda R.

Clay Cure All
Hey all I started using clay in March of '08 mainly because I have been "sick" for about 7 years and no real reason could be found. As I was researching I discovered all sorts of nasty things like mercury, toxicity, yeast and parasites. I must say the clay has given me back my energy, my zest for life and oh yeah I have lost some weight. Also I noticed I don't have to dye my hair as much not nearly as grey. So I would recommend the clay for everyone. Spider veins in my legs are diminishing and the huge varicose one down the back of my leg is getting smaller so..... drink up, it is all good!!! - Debbie R.

Mood Swings No More
I had been dealing with some serious mood swings where I was agitated quite easily.  One moment I was up, the next moment down and just feeling a little out of sorts.  Nothing serious.  My doc and I did talk about some premenopausal issues that I may be facing and I was not too keen on wanting to try any doc prescribed meds. Since using the clay, I have noticed such a change in my attitude.  Nothing seems to bother me as much any more.  There is a "calm" that has come upon me.  I don't know any other way to describe it other than saying that it is sort of a "la la la" type of attitude.  I shared this with a friend of mine who drinks clay as well.  She knew exactly what I was speaking of and shared that she had been depressed for a wee bit and noticed that after using the clay that it perked her up.  It's just the strangest and most amazing thing. I get a tickle out of this new attitude.  What do you think could account for this affect that I KNOW the clay has had on me?  Not that I have taken any drugs before, but it feels like a wonderful "natural" drug effect.  Do you know what I mean? - Cynthia J.

Lump on the Bottom of Foot
I had a lump on the ball of my foot.  I had had a tumor removed from there 15 years earlier.  This area was raised or swollen and slightly irritating.  Sometimes. but not always.  Usually I noticed discomfort.  Then I decided I was going to apply clay.  I put the clay on and covered with plastic to keep on my foot.  Soon, a couple of hours there was the worse odor and the dog kept sniffing my foot.  I checked the area and didn't see anything unusual and I left the plastic on.  I could feel relief.  When the smell and a little drainage was over, the area was clean and no longer bothersome.  This really worked...
The foot problem I was having is gone before I could photograph it.  I looked and it was gone.  I mean I had surgery on that foot and now it is like new. - Janet D.

Diabetes and Chronic Insomnia
I'm an elderly retired man who suffers from both diabetes and chronic Insomnia.  I've spent years taking prescription sleep aids with unsatisfactory results.  My son, a Naturopathic Doctor, sent me 16 oz. of Living Clay and The Living Clay book by Perry A~.  I began taking the Clay internally and after two days my insomnia has all but disappeared.  I've not slept this well in years!  Furthermore, my avg. morning blood sugar readings are around 145; I've now been getting consistent readings of 75!  I credit my newly found clay regime for both of these significant breakthroughs.  It amazes me that such an affordable, natural, and effective cure has found me.  I will tell everyone I know about this amazing clay.  Bob C.

Hangover Remedy
I hate to admit this but one day I had a terrible hangover.  I took some clay and went to work. By the time I got there 30 minutes later I felt fine. No hangover at all. - Linda R.

General Use and Hangover
I am using clay for many things. Mainly for metal detox as a drink, but also for ph balance, maintenance, skin care, pet detox, and foot soaks to draw out toxins. It seems like it snaps me right out of a hangover too. - Shane M.

General Love for Clay
If I could have only ONE health solution to help me through my  life, it is the CLAY I cannot do without. - Lisa C.

General Health
I love this clay so much! I first heard about bentonite clay on a radio show. The 2 hour interview was absolutely fascinating and the clay is superb. I eat it twice daily & apply it externally as well. I feel more energized, my eye whites are clearer and my digestive system is running so much better.  My sons love what it has done for their acne. I have also tried it (very successfully) on my younger sons dandruff problem. I added some hydrated clay to his shampoo and the dandruff is gone. I think there are almost unlimited possibilities for using this clay. - Louise J.

Feeling Fabulous on Clay
I have been consuming Calcium Bentonite Clay for about three months. It is fabulous and it makes me feel fabulous. I have done a detox with the clay and have my two boys taking the clay nightly. One has ADD and I have seen a remarkable difference in focus since he has started the clay. Thank goodness we found you. - Diane H.

Enlarged Lymph Node Shrinks
Recently, I had another chance to see what the Living Clay has accomplished in another persons life. I have an individual in the office who was having problems sleeping and went to the medical community for help.  After giving her a complete physical and finding nothing "out of sorts", they decided MRI (from the top of her head to mid-chest) to see if it would show anything.  Well it did...but it was not associated with what they were looking for...!  They found an enlarged lymph node next to her heart by the aorta.  She was told they wanted to check it out in another two weeks...well needless to say she was terrified...!!!  She came and talked to me and I immediately told her to order some of the Living Clay powder which she did!  Linda mailed her some over night to hold her over until her order arrived.  I instructed her how to use it...she bathed in it and drank it for about 4 or 5 days before she was scheduled for her CT (from the bottom of the head to lower abdomen).  The doctor wanted the same radiologist who read the MRI to read the CT and had to wait a few days before calling her with the results.  The Doctor started out saying they now thought it was just an inflamed lymph node because it was smaller from when they first had seen it in the MRI.  Then the doctor asked if she had been taking Pepto Bismal...curious at to what initiated the question...my friend said no...why do you ask?  The doctor said the CT showed the entire intestinal track was lined with something like Pepto Bismal...!!!  My friend then said she had been drinking calcium bentonite clay!  The doctor said she had heard about it, what it was and to keep taking it because it is good for you...!!!  Now you can come to your own conclusion but personally, knowing what I know...seeing what I have seen...I personally feel the clay immediately started to reverse the problem with the lymph node...and I think the doctor did as well but since she is a mainstream doctor, and a military one too...I feel she couldn't give the real reason as to what had occurred with my friends health...!!!!  Dan R.

Amputation Avoided
I used Bentonite clay to avoid amputation of my mother's toe and possibly her foot. Her doctor had been battling the infection with strong antibiotics for three weeks, with little improvement. Her toe was very red, black in some areas, and swollen. She soaked the foot in Calcium Bentonite clay, about two heaping tablespoons mixed in water for twenty minutes twice a day for a week.  Her doctor was shocked at the difference when he saw her today. He said to continue  using the clay until the little redness that was evident was gone. - Kathy D.

Decrease in PSA Blood Work
About 18 months ago, a co-worker had to have his prostrate removed. At his one year check up things looked clean but he still had to have blood work accomplished every 3 months.  In January of this year, he approached me and said even though he didn't have a prostrate anymore, his PSA was climbing.  I asked how could this be and he said the doctors told him the cancer seems to collect in the area where the prostrate used to be which is seen by the elevated PSA count.  I immediately gave him my supply of hydrated clay and told him to start drinking 4 oz in the morning and at night (boy did I miss my clay, but it was worth it). Two weeks later he went back for more blood work and his PSA was down and in the green. - Dan R.

Croupy Cough
My Mom is in a nursing home, and has had a very bad cough, she is unable to bring the mucus up on her own, and so she has to be suctioned. Well today when I went to see my Mom I immediately applied the hydrated clay to her chest and throat area and kept it on for approximately 45 minutes, well you will not believe what happened during that time, she began coughing, but the wonderful part is that she started bringing up the mucus on her own, I was so excited I had tears of joy. - Carla C.

Quality of Life Benefits
I too have told many people about Living Clay and gave it to my sister for her birthday. It definitely does not stay in the gut. You can see it when you have a bowel movement. The benefits I have had, I'm sure have extended my life. Three of which are, it's regulated my body temperature, I used to be really hot and couldn't take the heat. Now, I don't have any problem with heat. The second is, I don't have to urinate as often as I did before. Now, when I go, I go a lot, and then don't have to go again for a while, and I drink a lot of water. The third is my skin seems to have a lovely tone, and is smoother. I'm so happy! It's making me younger. I am going to take it for the rest of my life. Thank you Living Clay!!!! - Susan M.

Pregnancy and Regularity
A pilgrim from El Salvador and her grown-up daughter browsing among the market stalls around the basilica enthusiastically claimed that they ate the holy tables (clay), and when asked, “Do they do you any good?” the woman’s sparkling eyes and instant response was: “Of course they do: I have eight children!”  - John M. Hunter and Oscar H. Horst, National Geographic Research

I got my daughter started on your clay 5 weeks ago, while we were all in Anaheim, California together. We were there for a produce convention that we attend every year - but this year it was in California -- so we invited both of our children, their spouses and our 4 yr old grandson, to join us. We all stayed at a very nice hotel, and had meals together - and the kids got a kick out of attending the produce show (plus the hotel was next door to Disneyland!)

I noticed our son-in-law adding some powdered stuff to his water at breakfast -- my daughter told me that they were having a little trouble going to the bathroom.  I immediately thought of the clay I had in our room! I made sure they got a supply and immediately started taking it. I then gave the powered clay that I had brought with me to my daughter to take home with her. As soon as we got home -- I mailed my daughter a package with some dry clay -- and your book and the CD's I have of yours. She ordered 8 lbs of clay within a week :>)

During this get-together my daughter and I talked about the fact that she & her husband were trying to have a 2nd child.  Last year she had a miscarriage. Her doctor was getting ready to put her on a drug that helps females eggs drop -- so they can get fertilized. My daughter had not taken this drug yet -- but the doctor was getting ready to start her on it. She just found out that she is pregnant!!! She swears she is pregnant because I gave her that clay - and that caused her egg to drop. So.....that is why I thought if she has a boy --- they should name him Clay!

Our daughter lives in southern California but - she has 3 chickens and 2 dogs -- and they get clay now too. She gives her son clay in his Apple Juice (just like you said you do on your CD) Needless to say -- they are all very regular now -- and will be taking your clay for the rest of their lives.

I can't seem to go anywhere -- and not have a little conversation about your clay. Yesterday I was dropping off some of my husband's shirts at the cleaners -- and one of the girls that works there asked me about the clay I've told her about before. (her mother is in a battle with cancer) Well, she and the seamstress that also works there are each getting a bottle of liquid clay and some hydrated clay from me today when I pick up the laundry! (I am also going to let them borrow your book and the CD's) I gave them the web site yesterday -- after a 20 minute conversation about your clay.

Thank you for all your wonderful work -- and your wonderful CLAY! - Linda  G. 

Clay Is A Must For My Family
I have been using clay for my family and I for about 6 months now. My goal is to always have some in the house for daily use. I have kids so I like to make sure they take it daily since sometimes our eating habits aren't always the best, being on a budget and all. I find the clay in important part of our lives now. Removing harmful toxins, bacteria, parasites from the body is a must. - Crystal S.

Migraine Headache
Well I have to tell you.... I took my first clay last night at 10 pm.... Drank water thru the night....each time i woke up....at 6 a.m. I woke up with a horrific migraine....like USUAL....and at about 45 minutes later went to the bathroom (the clay is working WOW ) and my migraine was instantly GONE!! 7 a.m. I’m putting on my makeup and now at 7:13 a.m. I’m emailing you with so much energy I’M SOLD!!!!! EVERYONE NEEDS CLAY!!!!!! OMG I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS!!!! THANKYOU. – Christie B. 

Chronic Fatigue
I started using clay in March of '08 mainly cause I have been "sick" for about 7 years and no real reason could be found as I was researching I discovered all sorts of nasty things like mercury toxicity, yeast and parasites I must say the clay has given me back my energy, my zest for life and oh yeah I have lost some weight also I noticed I don't have to dye my hair as much not nearly as grey so I would recommend LC for every one - spider veins in my legs are diminishing and the huge varicose one down the back of my leg is getting smaller so..... drink up, it is all good!!! I also have chronic fatigue which causes the immune system to malfunction my lymph nodes have been chronically enlarged for years since taking the clay the ones in my groins and armpits have gone down and the ones in my neck are reduced halleujah!!! It has been 8 years and it is wonderful. - Patsy K.

Agent Orange and Other Problems
I am a gulf war veteran.  I was activated January, 1991 and had to leave three small children ( my oldest was only five).  Although I was not deployed to the war zone, I was inoculated with a whole array of vaccines along with everyone else.  I spent most of my deployment in England, from where we launched our cargo planes loaded with supplies for the troops in Iraq.

Toward the end of my mobilization, I came down with a serious kidney infection, and when I was demobilized I continued to feel sickly.  I was chronically tired, but could never get a restful night's sleep.  I had a dull headache all the time, my gums were sore and bleeding, and my joints ached.  After my demobilization, I felt as if I had aged fifty years!

I began to pay close attention to my diet, eating as much fresh vegetables and fruits.....getting organic as much as possible.  I began supplementing my diet with CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid, milk thistle extract, vitamin c, a good probiotic, and just as much "good stuff" as I could get into my body.  These things seemed to help somewhat, but I just couldn't seem to get total and consistent relief from the symptoms I was experiencing.

About two years ago, I accidentally came across the WARL radio station in Providence and there was a lady talking about "real health".  After that day, I tuned in regularly.  Anyway, I began using oregano products, coconut oil, essential oils, flax lignin and some other items which again improved my condition.

Then, one day the radio show had this guest on who was talking about eating dirt every day!  I thought "what!?"  As I listened to this man describe the many curing abilities of this miraculous "dirt", I made a decision that I was going to get some, as I still was battling bleeding gums, canker sores, and pains in the back of my neck and knee joints.

I started taking one teaspoon of clay with purified water first thing in the morning and before bed.  I continued this regimen for about the next nine months, until one day this summer, I went to the beach with my husband and several of our friends for a diving adventure.  After diving, we girls went into the ladies room to change and wash the salt and sand off.  And as we were washing and chatting in front of the mirrors, one of the ladies looked at me, her eyes with the look of amazement, and she said to me "you have the best skin I've ever seen!"  I didn't know what to say except, "Thanks, what a kind thing to say."  Then I looked in the mirror and noticed that a liver spot I’d had on my left cheek since my last pregnancy which was in 1989, about the size of a quarter, which had started to raise at one point, was completely gone!  My complexion really was even-toned and radiant!  I hadn’t even noticed until that lovely comment was made!

What I really noticed, however, since eating clay every day and using only clay and sea salt as a dentifrice, is a complete clearing of my gum problems, the lack of joint and neck pain, no headaches, and I sleep like a baby!  The chronic fatigue I'd lived with for so long had disappeared completely!

I'm so thankful for this God-sent substance for those of us who can now use this to heal ourselves and to purify ourselves of the many toxins we ingest knowingly and unknowingly.  I do believe this "miracle dirt" could be the key to curing Gulf War Illness and to restoring our many sick veterans (about 260,000) back to health. - Donna D.

Urinary Tract Infection
I have discovered a good reason to stay on the clay.  I wasn't using it and I developed a Urinary Tract Infection.  OMG, it was the worst I ever had.  I went to the Dr. (not too bright).  She put me on seven days of antibiotic which I took like a lemming. (A small animal that follows others no matter where it leads.)  She also gave me something to control my uncontrollable urination.  After seven days I still had extreme burning and pain.  I called her and she put me on more, stronger antibiotics.  Well six days into this and I knew I wasn't burning as bad but that I was not cured and I was not asking for more antibiotics.  So I woke early one morning and applied hydrated clay "a large blob" to my urethra.  I went back to bed, because I had stinging when I was just laying there.  I dozed off and woke up with the stinging practically gone.  I took a shower and applied more clay, and left it on all day.  I didn't urinate for a couple of hours BUT when I did it was the darkest, smelliest stuff I ever knew.  To sniff a bottle of pure ammonia would be an understatement.  I knew then I was going to be ok.  So I left the clay on. I think just leaving the clay to do its work is the best thing you can do.  Last night before going to bed I applied more hydrated clay and awoke this morning with a full bladder and no pain.  Prior to this I had been leaking at night.  This a.m. the color was very dark but did not smell.  I took a shower and applied more clay and I am awaiting the outcome of that.  I will keep the clay on as long as I feel the need because I think I will know when I am cleaned out.  I hope this will help someone and also give you the motivation to keep the clay on/in/around the problem.- Janet  M.

Allergies and Diabetes
For a long time i have been drawn to using clay - especially calcium bentonite. Recently, I decided to start ingesting this clay and started eating a teaspoon per day in smoothies. The next morning after eating the clay I felt much clearer than usual!  Usually I suffer from allergies and they make me feel sort of foggy in the morning - but that morning I felt great!  I have since continued eating the clay and it has been almost a week.  Since then my allergies have greatly decreased and I have much more energy.

I am a type 1 diabetic and have been taking 12 units of insulin 2 times a day for several years.  Since starting on the clay I have had to reduce my insulin to 10 units 2 x a day! This is in less than a week! Thanks so much and I'm so glad to see your website since I have been reading everything I can find about clay! - D.J.H.

Hot Flashes
I continue to be so grateful for you and your products. Newest elation centers on the elimination of 95% of my hot flash misery – the night sweats are gone and but for a gentle reminder that I am still progressing through the menopausal stage of my "youth," I feel like a brand new person. I can't tell you the misery of feeling droplets roll down my upper torso has caused me since the age of 48 (I am now 54), and all I had to do was include one heaping teaspoon of your clay powder daily in my tea. If I go without your clay just one day, the hot flashes remind me of my deficiency, and without hesitation, I am back on your product! - Diane Z.

Hair Care

Hair Regrowth
Yes, I believe much in the detoxing power of calcium bentonite clay ...have used it for the regrowth of my hair, from all the chemicals used at the salon, etc.  I was totally amazed at how quickly it worked and to say the least ...very much pleased.  I started out putting the clay mixed with apple cider vinegar not water, as a face mask and loved the results, but someone wrote a post on the group and said something once about being a 'clay-head' and so then I put the same mixture on my scalp twice a week for 20 at a time, and within about 4-5 weeks, I started seeing new growth.  I really was a 'clay head' ...<smiling>  ...oh, and yes, I did place plastic wrap. - Debbie B
.

Replacement for Hair Products
I have fine thin hair that packs to my head and it gets very oily by the end of the day . I have used sooo many products to give my hair body and wasted sooo much money. Then a friend said to wash your hair in the Cleansing Clay Mask. Well, I had tried crazier things so I said, "Why not?" Boy am I glad I did. I now have hair with body and no oil and it isn't packed to my head. I am a 28 year old guy and love that now I have a mane. All I do is wet my hair and massage in some hydrated clay, wash with it and dry and I now have great hair. Works for me and no more expensive shampoos, hair waxes, foams and sprays, etc., and so much easier. - Alex F.

Baldness from Chemo
In August of 1999, three weeks short of my nineteenth birthday, I was diagnosed with Leukemia. During my first round of chemotherapy, my thick dark brown hair fell out as a side effect often found with chemotherapy patients. Over the course of my treatments, my hair would often grow back between rounds of chemotherapy in usual ways, such as blonde and light brown. At the end of my cancer treatment, I underwent a bone marrow transplant that left me bald once again. Before I continue, I would like to say that I am blessed and proud to say that I am cancer free, and that beating cancer will not be the biggest accomplishment in my life. Still, as a young man in his early twenties, my self-image still plays a role in my confidence and over the last four years, since the transplant, my hair has yet to return to its original dark thickness. A year after the transplant, my hair began to grow back in light thin peach fuzz on the sides but nothing on the top. My doctors stated that perhaps like my father I was going bald and it just happened to occur at the same time as my treatment. As the weeks and months continued, my hair began to thicken in certain areas at times, but at an extremely slow rate. I began to shave my head because in my opinion, if I didn’t it appeared more like I was losing my hair rather then the fact it was growing back.

Extremely frustrated at the rate of hair growth I was experiencing, early this past summer I questioned if my hair would ever return. A trip to the oncologist lead to a blood test which revealed that all my hormonal levels associated with balding men were normal. Baffled for an explanation, I was referred to a famous dermatologist in Manhattan who specialized in hair loss. His “diagnosis” was that I was going bald and he recommended some oral and topical medications to keep the little hair I had. I didn’t agree with his diagnosis and it didn’t make sense to believe that I was balding when every few months I was getting a few new hairs here and there.

Last August I was exposed to this amazing clay from a friend who recommended that I give it a try for my scalp. I began using the clay in September and in the last three months the results are INCREDIBLE! Less than one month into using the clay topically once a day people began to notice the increase of hair. The rate of dark thick hair growth is compounding each week. I now have a date at which I expect a full head of hair that is less then a year thanks to this amazing clay where six months ago I began to doubt if that would ever be possible again. With my most recent order, I now plan to ingest the clay as well for the benefit of my health and my hair. - Michael I.

Hives, Rashes, Skin Problems

Clay for Vision, Birthmark and Skin Care
I am 67 years old and began taking clay orally on December 1 year 2010. The amount I used was full rounded teaspoon of brown clay from a local store, in half glass of water upon awaking in the morning and at 7:00 p.m. after eating a light meal at evening (usually I don't eat after that at night). I did it for 60 days. While doing that I noticed being less tired, more energetic, more joyfulness, and much more strength while dancing (I dance once in a week for one hour folk dancing), while swimming 1 Km every day at morning and when walking. About this time I was introduced to Living Clay from a friend and began using it. Seeing the benefits of taking clay orally I decided to try it for curing a birthmark on my face, so after 100 days I began using it on my face.  In the morning I drank one full teaspoon of clay twice a day. I soaked the clay in water for 24 hours before drinking it. I also began using the clay on my face twice a day in the morning and in the evening. About 3 weeks ago, after having many remarks on how my face was looking younger and that the birth mark was much improved, I decided to put the clay also on my eyes for about 30 minutes, so in the morning I put the clay on my face and one eye for half and hour then washed my face then put again on face and other eye for 30 minutes. I noticed after 3 weeks that I did not need glasses to read newspaper and lately I stopped using glasses when in front of computer screen or when reading books and newspapers. Another important thing, before using clay on my face I used to get my face cleaned every two weeks by a special women who cleaned it thoroughly to remove black heads that I had on my face, When these spots were removed each time a white matter was coming from under it. About 2 weeks after using the clay on my face, the woman who came to clean my face was astonished to note that my face was clean and didn't need treatment any more.

My wife also had a very good experience with using clay. She had dermabrasion on her face.  About year after that Wounds (scarring) arose on her face. The scarring was so ugly that she couldn't go out of the home because she felt uneasy to meet people who constantly asked about what happened to her. She began medical treatments including antibiotics and additional special pills to fight the wounds. It took two months of treatments until the wounds were cured. About a year later the wounds appeared again. Now being familiar with the clay power I suggested she use clay. She didn't believe that the clay would help but as she felt she must do something to heal the wounds she began the clay treatment. About a week after the start of using clay the wounds were healed. Now she does not miss any day to spread clay on her face, and she advocates using it to everybody!!

My 80 year old brother who is also reading the newspaper with aide of eye glasses has begun using clay over his face and eyes to fight a cataract. About week later as he was reading the newspaper when he also noticed that he does not need his glasses any more.  These experiences have quickly spread to other brothers and now clay is a family thing. - David G.

Clay for Carbuncle
I'm new to clay but I LOVE CLAY!!! I was recently introduced to clay as a result of getting a carbuncle on my thigh. A friend went to the health food store for me and they told her to have me place the clay mask on the carbuncle with a bandage. I had to change bandages frequently because the clay was drawing out the infection rapidly. I read horror stories about people who were left with huge scars and holes in their bodies from the carbuncles, but thanks to clay...I hardly have a scar and I'm spreading the word about clay. – Khrystil B.

Skin Care and Pre-Skin Cancers
Not only do I use it internally but I make clay masks and use them weekly. I am prone to having pre-skin cancers and when I see something, I immediately put clay on the spot for a few weeks each morning and it disappears! I now buy the cream as well and use it as my morning and evening moisturizer instead of the super expensive creams I had been using previously. People comment on how soft and wonderful my skin looks all the time. The face and body scrub is wonderfully refreshing as well. I would urge everyone to try it...you will never be without it!! – Petey S.

Raised Spot Shrivels Up
I want to share, what I consider, a Living Clay miracle! I have a dry, raised age spot over my left breast that was the size of an oval dime. When I first became introduced to the clay and poultices, I began covering the spot and letting it dry and not really washing it off for 24 hours at a time - I did this a couple of times a week. Well I want you to know that the spot is now one-half the size and where part of it has dried and scabbed off is new pink skin. I must say I am amazed and happy about this! I love Bentonite clay! – Susan S.

Noticeable Skin Improvement
I have to tell you that after the 1st week of doing the Advanced Clay Detox regimen, I went with my husband for his appointment with our Dermatologist. I noticed the Doctor look at my face twice and he didn't say anything. After Bill's exam was done, I went in to see the Doctor's book keeper, she literally ran up to me and stroked my face with her right hand (something she never did before) and asked me what I was using on my skin. At first, I asked her if she really noticed a difference and she said, "Oh my, yes!!" I didn't notice any changes at the time, but now that I am 18 days into the Advanced Detox, and I have done 3 clay masks, I notice my skin is firmer and the pores are shrinking and I don't use as much makeup.  – Robin M.

Love Affair with Living Clay - My Skin Tells All
You know, over the last few years I've gone through lots of different "health" products, but the clay and psyllium husk powder are the only 2 that I have stuck with this long.....because I have seen the results and they are great.  I've been out in the sun a lot these past 2 weeks and I have not taken the time to apply sun screen on my face (which I need to be better about), but I have not had the first hint of sunburn on my face yet.  I do believe that it is because of the clay masks.  My face just does not feel as "sensitive" as it had been in the past.  Another thought that I have had about the clay face masks is that the circulation to my face has improved due to the drawing power of the clay as it dries on my face and pulls the blood up.  Whenever I wash off the clay my face is flushed red, which is the blood sitting right under the surface of the skin.  I believe this is improving my circulation, thus giving more oxygen to those areas, thus making a healthier face.  I was not blessed with good circulation. - Hallie G.

Acne - Off Proactive on Clay
I have suffered from moderate acne for about ten years. Until Perry introduced me to her clay products, the only thing that has ever worked consistently has been Proactiv. I had used Proactiv for at least three years and, although it kept my acne under control for the most part, I still had breakouts right before my period. I was also becoming concerned with the long-term effects of using Proactiv and its myriad ingredients and chemicals. I took a leap and switched to Living Clay Co.'s face scrub, rejuvenating face cream and the clay mask. My face has never looked better! Not only is my acne more under control than ever, my skin looks more vibrant and feels smoother. I am using less makeup than I did before, and what makeup I do use goes on more evenly. After a month of using clay and feeling confident that it was truly working, I cancelled my Proactiv membership. This is a big deal for me! I am always scared of how my skin will react to new products, but I have found something that works wonders AND, most importantly, I don't have to worry about the effects of using it long-term because it is pure and natural. – Alycia F.

Acne
My 14 year old athletic son has been battling acne on his face and back for the past year.  Five weeks ago he started drinking 2 ounces of liquid clay in the morning and the evening.  His acne now appears to be under control on his face; and his back has cleared up by about 70 percent.  He has recently begun using the clay mask to augment the liquid regime and we are definitely seeing further results.  He is now on a maintenance dose and plans to continue to make liquid clay part of his daily routine. - Donna

Acne Free
For 20 years I have struggled with mild adult acne.  Never could I say I was blemish or cyst free.  Within two days of using the clay, co-workers commented on the difference in my skin and after one week of use I'm happy to report no breakouts.  Now that's a record!!!! I am truly loving these products.  My skin has never looked this good....thank you, thank you!!!! -

35 Years of Acne
I am new to clay usage and so far am amazed at the results I am getting. My primary reason for using the clay was to help clear up acne. In 35 years this is the only remedy I’ve found that actually works!  Thank you for educating us about the wonders of clay. - Cindy W.

Complexion Improvement
I received a sample of the Rejuvenation Face  Cream and just love it.  I know that it has been instrumental in helping my skin as well!  You shared a few days ago that you have gotten feedback from some who have asked that the Rejuvenation Face  Cream be marketed as an "acne cream."  I can see why! Just wanted to share of my experience thus far with your powder clay product.  I've been ingesting an teaspoonful a day in an 8oz. glass of water in the morning on an empty stomach as suggested.  I can see a marked difference in the appearance of my skin and complexion.  I've been dealing with some slight adult acne which has left some mild scaring.  My skin a clearing nicely and seems to have a "glow" to it.  I have had a wee bit of sun too. - Cynthia J.

Cleared My Acne
Drinking your clay and applying it as a mask has cleared up my acne totally.  I  mention this to my visitors who would be interested in acne cures. Thank you. - Marisa T.

Clear Skin with Clay
I am just loving the clay! I use it to wash my face every night and it has kept my skin clearer than it has been in years! - Marlisa H.

White Heads, Cracked Fingers and Weight Loss
I am so excited because I have had this white head on my forehead for years and you couldn't pop it or get to it because it was so deep under the skin. I decided to try the clay on it. Well it worked. I'm not sure how many applications it was because at first I was just doing a whole mask on my face and then after several applications I thought, I wonder if this would get rid of this white head so then I think I put 2 applications directly on the white head and left it on overnight. Now I don't have to go to the dermatologist. The clay also brought out another weird blemish on my lower eyelid so now I have clay on that. We'll see what happens. I'm going to try it on skin tags. It's fun to see what the clay can do.
Day 2: I just used the hydrated clay this morning again on that one little hard clear bump that came out on my lower eyelid and it's now gone, also while doing that, I was soaking my finger tips in the hydrated clay for 30 min. and it was weird. The clay opened the cracks up and now they don't hurt. Yea!!! In the 2 weeks that I've been using the Living Clay, I took off 3 pounds. So happy about that! -

No Acne during PMS
About 6 weeks ago, someone recommended that I try Bentonite clay for an overall detox. When I ordered the clay, I noticed that it was supposed to help with acne but since I have tried many different products, with varying degrees of success, I didn't really expect anything remarkable. When I first began eating the clay, I began to feel almost overwhelmingly exhausted everyday. This lasted for about 2 weeks, and I can only assume it was a detox effect. Soon after, however, my energy returned and, since that time, I have felt better than ever. What really impressed me though is that for the first time in 20 years, my face stayed perfectly clear during PMS. Other products have helped to control the acne for most of the month but before my period, forget it- nothing has ever worked before. I kept waiting for the breakouts and couldn't believe my eyes when my skin looked so great. Such a simple remedy and so inexpensive. - Sincerely, Christina G.

Adult Acne with Scarring
Let me tell you what it has done for me....For the past 24 years, I've had acne along with scarring...it is so embarrassing and humiliating to be in your 40's and still break out.  And when I say I've tried everything, for the control of the acne as well as for scar removal, I have tried most of the truly legitimate products that have come on the market and NOTHING has given me the results that Living Clay has! I have used everything from Retin-A to professional Dermabrasion and everything in between , and just cannot bring myself to doing a chemical peel or laser surgery. I take the clay by liquid or capsule once daily and I use the Face & Body Scrub to wash my face, then I use the Wrinkle Release Cream on top of that and once a week I use the Cleansing Clay Maskas a facial. I absolutely LOVE this stuff and hope to never be without it! My skin looks better than it has in years and though I still break out occasionally, it is not near with the severity as before and the scarring is beginning to minimize gently and I guess the best part is my skin is not blotchy or ruddy, I don't even wear make-up anymore because I have a natural glow! I also have to say that I think it is the combination of taking the clay internally as well as using it externally the way I do that has brought such wonderful results. Thank you everyone at Living Clay Co!  To know that I am using a product that is so good for me and beneficial is an awesome feeling! - Lori H. “Clay Lover for Life”

Clay Great for Deep Pimple
I just wanted to post about another clay success, I sometimes get these painful, deep pimples on my chin, seems to be a hormonal thing, and I got one last week. I started out putting Clearasil on it, then thought of my clay, and used that. I put a good blob on before bed, and after a few minutes could feel a throbbing feeling, as it pulled out the inflammation. I put a very light coat on during the day, and heavy at night, and it was much better in just a few days, usually takes longer. It is still there a little, but hardly at all, and I am giving it a break because the surrounding skin started to get dry, but this is great, much better than this usually goes!
And you can use this as a testimonial, if you like, Perry! - Mary Beth

Acne Boils
My oldest son suffers from acne boils. I put clay on it for an evening then he showers it off. We don't keep it damp as I want a strong pulling/drying action. The next day his face is almost clear...my husband is amazed! - Esther

Clearer Skin
I've been using the clay on my face for about a year.  My skin is clearer and at the first site of a breakout, the clay goes on.  I often sleep with a light layer for maintenance, which really aids in prevention of acne. I've thrown out all other products and have saved a ton of money!! - Heather D.

Clearer Skin and Bumps and Pimples Disappearing
I received my clay and starting eating and apply it on my face on Dec 9th. Well, let me back up! I first discovered the Living Clay through my mom. She had got a sample from somewhere and talked and talked about how it pulled. She said after she used it a couple of times her coworkers that she did something different to her face! So of course she calls me to try it. I try it and I think its awesome. It pulls like nobody’s business. The clay makes me feels really relaxed and sleepy.

Ok so there’s the history. So, I have been using it for about a couple weeks now and I definitely notice a few things. Clearer skin, more even toned, almost zilch to no bumps/pimples, increase softness in my skin. I can’t say how it affecting the rest of my skin on my body but only time will tell. You best believe that I will not be without my clay! I will continue to eat and apply it on my body. I believe in the next few months I have will have that glowing, even toned beautiful skin that I have always dreamed of. - Melinda S.

Teenage Acne
When my son, Ryan, hit puberty his face erupted with acne.  The poor kid had it so bad that you could hardly see his face underneath all the zits.  I took him to a dermatologist who wanted to prescribe an oral medication.  Because I know the havoc taking medication can have on the body I was against that.  Next the doctor prescribed a topical ointment of Rentin A, this caused his sign to turn bight red and it became extremely painful in the sunshine.  Imagine an active teenage boy who loves to ski, play in the pool with his brothers and soccer with his friends, hiding inside all day because even to walk outside was too painful.  To occupy his time inside he spent a lot of time in front of the TV or the computer, this started to cause a little chubbiness around his middle.  Now not only was his face literally peeling off and bright red – it looks worse than just the acne, he was becoming an introverted couch potato.  Michael Morningstar introduced the Living Clay to us last year and after just a few weeks of using just the clay daily as a mask, Ryan’s acne has for the most part cleared up, he is back outside enjoying his life and we are not paying an arm and a leg for prescriptions. -

Acne
My daughter has fought with acne for two years.  We’d tried every over-the-counter remedy on the market, and nothing worked.  A friend told us about bentonite clay, and we decided to give it a try.  My daughter began applying the clay once a day, letting it dry, and then washing it off.  At first, she experienced some redness, but we were told to expect that, so she kept using it.  Within 1 week, her face was clear of pimples, and within two weeks, there weren’t even any red marks left!  I’ve never seen her so happy! -  Martha B.

Reduction in Blackheads
I just got some calcium bentonite clay yesterday, and used it as a mask on my face.  IMMEDIATELY after rinsing it off, I noticed a HUGE reduction in my blackheads, which I have had problems with for years!  WOW!!! I could not believe it. I thought I’d have to use it for a few weeks to see results, but no – literally after the first use there was a huge improvement.  The mask felt great while it was on too. I swear I could feel it working. - Kristian M. H.

Genital Herpes
I was diagnosed with genital herpes one year ago and went on the usual bout of prescriptions. Every now and then, as predicted, I get a break out, not as bad as the first. A friend of mine -- who is the one I credit to turning me on to your products and a genital herpes sufferer as well, recommended that I put the clay mask directly on the sore and leave it on. I had been using Zovirax cream-- which was not helping by the way. I put it directly on the sore at night and went to bed with it on. The next day, it was completely gone. And this has happened twice. - Julia B.

Boil on Stomach
I am a practicing Electrologist in the San Antonio, Texas area. I just wanted to share with you that a client of mine had great success with clay on an infected area of her skin. She showed me a very large boil or cyst on her stomach. It presented itself from the rubbing of clothing at her waist band. She had it for several months before she finally consulted me about it. I recommended using calcium bentonite clay. She applied a wet paste and left it on her stomach for about 15 minutes. Then she wiped it off with a wet wash cloth and went to sleep. When she took a shower the next morning she noticed the infection was gone. She showed me the area when she came in for her next appointment and I could hardly believe it was the same area. The boil was completely gone. You could see that the skin area was now healing. I have used the clay on skin problems before but I have never seen it work so well or so quickly. This is a true testament to its effectiveness. - Maryellen L.

For Oily Skin and Healthy Teeth
I can tell you from personal experience that if you drink the "Living Clay" internally (every day) it will make that oily hair disappear in a matter of just a few weeks, and it will also get rid of oily skin. My whole life I've been plagued with oily hair and skin, but not now! I'm using the Living Clay brand. I've tried a few different kinds and they were not as fine-grained as the Living Clay. Also, they don't have as strong of a magnetic pull. Oh, you asked about other uses....I also brush my teeth with it. I mix it into a "hydrated" form, which is like thick mud (1:3 ratio) and I keep a little bowl of it in my bathroom. On my toothbrush I put 1/2 toothpaste and half hydrated clay. It does a great job on the teeth, and it's also healthy for the gums. I also give small amounts of the liquid to my children....hide it in their orange juice and they don't even know. - Hallie G.

Clay Masks and Wrinkle Magic
I made my first order for a 4 oz jar of clay and received a complimentary jar of Wrinkle Release with it.  I make a clay mask and me, my mom and all my daughters were running around with these masks on . . . and we could not believe how tight they pulled . . . great for the circulation and helping clear and smooth your face.  But what really impressed me, and quite by surprise, I used the Wrinkle Release Cream the next morning.  Literally . . . right before my eyes, I watched the sagginess and wrinkles pull up around my mouth!  I wasn't expecting anything like that!  But you can literally see the difference.  So now I use it every morning as I seldom wear base.  Does it permanently make wrinkles go away? No. But it sure does a great immediate and temporary job. - Lorena L.

Clay for Facials and Skin Care
First, I need to say I am 70.  So I don't expect skin of a 20 year old.  However, I bet it feels like I have skin of a 50 year old.  I, too, have many brown spots on my face from sun damage.  I use Living Clay, a cleansing clay mask.  When I shake the jar, it vibrates.  Feels like it is alive.  I use it several times a week.  I wash my face and put it on and leave it for half an hour.  I usually check my e-mail during that time.  I rinse it off and my face feels so smooth, tight and beautiful.  Notice I said it feels beautiful.  I don't wear as much makeup.  I can't forget I am 70.  I can't honestly say it has removed anything yet.  I, too, am new at clay. I think eventually it will help sun damage.  If not, I am happy with "the good feeling".  It's not expensive and I am sure you would be pleased.  Check out the web site.  It says it better than I can. - Barbara M.

Healthy Looking Skin and More Energy
The biggest pluses that I have had after drinking clay every day for 8 months is: (1)  Much increased energy, sustained throughout the day, and (2) Healthier, better-looking skin all over my body. I have had other good things happen as well, but I can really attest to these 2 that I mentioned. Anyone who might be considering taking clay but haven't taken that leap should definitely give it a try for at least 2-3 months. It certainly can't hurt you, and you have so many good things to gain. I personally believe the most effective way to see results is to drink it. If one's body is very toxic then the baths would definitely be a good thing too. - H. Gage

Stopped Clay-Lost my Glow
I love taking clay, would rather miss a meal than miss taking my clay. Stopped taking it for four days to do a gallbladder cleanse and my husband said, "Your face has lost its glow." I looked in the mirror and his observation was spot on. My glow returned after I restarted the drinking of the clay on the 5th day. Thank you for this product. - Linda R. 

Skin Improvement
I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the clay. Just as my friend had told me, the clay is absolutely amazing. I used it for a facial and my skin texture improved visibly almost immediately. - Aisha G.

Looking Younger- Goodbye Sephora
I have been using the Living Clay for one month and I feel 20 years younger.  I can also tell you that everyone at my yoga class and my friends are asking what I am doing different.  Seems they think I look younger.  I am also using the rejuvenation face cream and wrinkle release.  No more going to Sephora and overpaying for chemicals to put on my face.  The Citrus-Green Tea Body Cream now goes with me everywhere.  Love it. Thank you for your wonderful products. - C. Murray

Clear, Smooth Skin
Since I’ve been using bentonite clay my friends think I have facials or microdermabrasion done all the time. They remark on how clear and smooth my skin looks and I can only attribute it to this wonder bentonite clay. It’s easy and gets results. - Denise H.

Glowing Skin - Liver Spot Vanished
About two years ago, I accidentally came across the WARL radio station in Providence which was airing The Power Hour at that time.  Working as a structural inspector on a jobsite, I had gotten into my company vehicle to warm up, since it was well below zero outside.  I was tired of mainstream propaganda on the radio and started scanning the radio waves, and there was Joyce talking about "real health".  After that day, I didn't want to miss one edition of the Power Hour.  And when I learned what Joyce and Dave have been doing for vets for so long, it practically brought tears to my eyes, I was so grateful for them! Then, one day Joyce had this guest on who was talking about eating dirt every day!  I thought "what!?"  As I listened to this person describe the many curing abilities of this miraculous "dirt", I made a decision that I was going to get some, as I still was battling bleeding gums, canker sores, and pains in the back of my neck and knee joints. I started taking one teaspoon of clay with purified water first thing in the morning and before bed.  I continued this regimen for about the next nine months, until one day this summer, I went to the beach with my husband and several of our friends for a diving adventure.  After diving, we girls went into the ladies room to change and wash the salt and sand off.  And as we were washing and chatting in front of the mirrors, one of the ladies looked at me, her eyes with the look of amazement, and she said to me "you have the best skin I've ever seen!"  I didn't know what to say except: "thanks, what a kind thing to say".  Then I looked in the mirror and noticed that a liver spot I‘d had on my left cheek since my last pregnancy which was in 1989, about the size of a quarter, which had started to rise at one point, was completely gone!  My complexion really was even-toned and radiant!  I hadn’t even noticed until that lovely comment was made! - Donna A. D. Master Sergeant, US Air Force, retired

Shingles
My daughter was 7 years old when she came down with a case of the shingles.  It started on the top of her head and ran two straight lines down the front and side.  She was in severe pain.  The doctor told us there was nothing he could do, if it got into her eye she could become blind.  The medications available were only for adults, too strong for children.  As the shingles continued it's course my prayers became more fervent.  I felt impressed to make a poultice from Aztec Indian Healing Clay.  I had learned about it years ago when I used it for fire ant bites.  Within 30 minutes she felt better.  Within 24 hours there was a marked improvement.  Within 4 days it was cleared up.  I have tried to tell everyone I know about this remedy.  I love clay and have used bentonite for several cleanses.  To me, there is no other way to cleanse!  Thank you. - Dianna L.

Shingles
Your service and products are incredible and I am telling everyone especially with any shingles outbreak.  There is no doubt your Muscle Rub naturally deals with pain relief while my protocol shortens duration to a week with sleep and minor functioning instead of total incapacity.  With reoccurring shingles, the Muscle Rub stops the pain in its tracks.  In July I received your larger size because the regular size disappeared much too quickly.  Both of the jars, SOOTHE 16 oz and 4 lb Living Clay Detox Clay Powder, were emptied last November during my last outbreak and I have finally used every speck in the Muscle Rub jar.  I consider it vital to have Muscle Rub on hand and not having either product is a big no-no for me! Life support and massive drug use took its toll (move than a decade) and just over a year ago I was hospitalized for respiratory distress for the eighth time in 6 months and gargling GSE seemed to be making the difference in my throat. With my arms full of IVs AGAIN I saw my first full body shingles outbreak and I got my diagnosis but I found medications not only ineffective but deadly. Creating my protocol released me with my full recovery in just over 48 hours. My two outbreaks since require no hospital or respiratory care. I am empowered at home and I have found your products offer the maximum comfort.  I have had a multitude of conditions because I was dragged under a moving pickup not fully understood until I could heal.  Where therapy is still addressing scar tissue I discover the virus is released in the damaged tissue. I am finally seeing a recovery level beyond my expectations when a case of it exited my left eye and required less than a week to take its course.  The oils in soothe never irritated any eye or face tissue!  I packed in on and washed it off for more without distress of any kind. I saw a full recovery and did not need any of the specialists at my disposal.  Again, thank you! - Donna M.

Plant Encounter No Match for Clay
Yet another win for clay. I was out trimming this morning and encountered a delicate plant in my flower bed. I pulled it up like normal and then a burning started occurring on one wrist and the other forearm. It was sort of icky and kept burning. I went inside slathered clay paste all over the areas and within ten minutes the sting was gone and all the redness disappeared. No sign that anything ever happened! Gotta love it! - Justine F.

Poison Ivy/Poison Oak
Yesterday, I was introduced to Living clay to help a severe case of poison oak.  I applied a small amount of the clay directly on the poison oak and in  24 hours it was dried up and was almost gone.  It did not take long to see the healing results.  I feel so much better! - Michael F.

 

Poison Ivy
I
would like to tell you a story of my use of Calcium Bentonite Clay. Back in July my husband Tom and I went for a drive north of Winnipeg, Manitoba to look for blueberries.  We had gone prepared for poison ivy, sweater, pants, socks the works.  We were hot.  On the trip back to the city we stopped at the side of the road and picked hyssop, its a black licorice mint plant with purple flowers. Anyhow, we never noticed any poison ivy so we  picked the hyssop.  About two days later poison ivy showed up on me.  I wished I had known about the clay last year.  I was head to toe covered in poison ivy.  Anyways, it was not bad at first, so I covered it with a bandaid, big no-no.  As I seen it had spread, Tom made a container of hydrated clay from the dry clay.  He would put a plastic glove on and spread the hydrated clay on both my legs.  I would let the clay stay on my legs til it was nearly dry.  It brought out all the oils from the poison ivy.  I was also washing my legs in cold water and ivory soap which I do recommend.  It was the calcium bentonite clay that worked real well.  It took two weeks from the time the poison ivy showed up to clear up with the clay.  Tom also added some Super Silver Solution and a magnesium citrate caplet to the mix. I had some scaring left so I bought some witchhazel/aloe vera gel lotion and that along with the clay cleared up the poison ivy.  We also brush our teeth with the hydrated clay before using toothpaste of which is a no fluoride toothpaste made by Nature's Best. - Tammy

 

Poison Oak
My husband was searching for his golf ball in the "bushes" and came home with his entire neck swollen, itchy, and painful. He looked deformed in the neck area. The poison oak was so bad that I really did not think clay would help much. I made up a huge batch and slathered him all around his neck, ears, and lower face. He griped and complained that "mud was not going to help". Oh, how I wish I had taken before and after pictures of him! He had even called his work to tell them that he was not sure if he was going to make it there in the morning. He took a cool shower and washed the clay off. I could hardly tell that he had been playing in poison oak! There were a few lumps but not red and he said it did not itch any longer. He did go to work and the other employees did not believe that he was covered in poison oak welts the night before. There were absolutely no sign of the poisonous plants effects except a small area on his upper chest that I did not see when I applied the clay! –Charla L.

 

Poison Sumac
I just had to tell you what happened to me this week. On Saturday, I got into some poison sumac. It was one of the worst cases my doctor had seen.  It was all over my face, neck, arms and stomach. I was embarrassed to go out in public and of course, it was itching like crazy. After trying calamine lotion, witch hazel, oatmeal baths, etc. for 2 days, it only looked worse, not better!  I thought, hey, I wonder if the clay will help? So, I decided to try it. I made it into a paste like I do for my facials, and applied a very thin layer to the spots on my face, which I left on overnight. In the morning, I was like a different person. All the redness and swelling was gone. The blisters were dried up! Some of the marks are still on my face, but they are faded and you can hardly see them at all. WOW!! Just wanted to say thanks for an amazing product with so many awesome uses. - Morgan S.

Warts
All my life I've dealt with warts. I'd have them removed from one part of my body only to have them reappear somewhere else. I learned that warts are the result of a virus that has no cure, so I thought I was doomed to deal with this all my life. There was one nasty looking wart on the right side of my nose just below my eye that bothered me more than any I'd ever dealt with. It didn't hurt ... it just looked nasty, and it was too close to my eye to use any of the commercial "wart remover" products on. So not too long ago I decided to start using clay on the wart. But I wanted to do more than just get rid of the wart ... I wanted to do "something" to insure it wouldn't come back. So I decided to start drinking liquid clay, too, in the hopes of removing once and for all this virus from my body. I can't sit here and tell you that I know the virus that causes warts is gone. I can tell you, though, that the wart on my nose is almost gone, and it no longer looks like a booger stuck to the side of my face!  - Phillip M.

Facial Warts
I used apple cider vinegar and clay to remove facial warts. I had 4 pretty good sized ones and now they are gone. This took work, but now my face is completely smooth and free of growths. – Linda W.

Warts – Hands Covered
I am writing to let you know how amazed I am at the healing powers of Living Clay. Just over a year ago I started developing warts on both my hands. They became larger and very unsightly. I went to two dermatologists, both shaking their heads and saying that getting rid of them would take drastic measures. I tried several treatments advertised on TV and elsewhere. I tried using chemicals recommended by the local druggist. Over a period of approximately 10 months, I went through several ways to help cure the warts, with absolutely zero results. The only option left was to have them burnt off, which I knew would be expensive, leave unsightly scars and no guarantee that they would not return. There were 17 warts at this time. I was devastated, I felt like the elephant man. I kept my hands hidden from view.  

Then, my wife, who was using the product for her skin and finding it fabulous, told me to try it. I'm not a big believer of natural cures, but I had nothing to lose. So in May of this year I started applying the clay to each wart and used duct tape to cover it. Every morning I got up and removed the duct tape and washed the areas. Within a couple of weeks, I could see a difference in size; a couple of the warts were really large. Now it is October and I have not one single wart on my hands!!!!!!!!!! I showed my hands to the druggist and he was totally amazed. I spoke to both doctors who were also quite impressed. All I can say is thank you so much for your product. Course now I wash my hair with it, drink it and tell everybody I meet about it. You will never know how relieved I have become since using your product. Thank you, thank you, thank you. - George B.

Warts - Too Many To Count
For almost two years I've had a succession of warts, too many to count, running from my high cheekbone and hairline down the neck and into the chin.  I've had three anesticians look at them and one medical doctor.  I was told it would take a minimum of four trips to have them burned off with perhaps some scarring occurring. In addition, I counted every wart I could see on my inner left wrist. There were 26. In April 2009 I started drinking two ounces a.m. and p.m. of Living Clay.  The beginning of June I upped the intake to three ounces twice a day.  Within four days of increasing the ounces, all the warts on my face vanished.  Presently I have nine warts left on my left wrist. There's absolutely no scarring....not even an indication through red or white marks that warts ever even existed. I'm now a believer and life-long user of Living Clay.  Wonderful! - L.D.

Wart Removed
For years, I had a small wart on the underside of my right breast.  It never cause me any pain or discomfort, but it always bothered me that it was there.  So, a few weeks ago, I decided I'd had enough of it!  I covered the wart with Living Clay twice a day, and bandaged it to keep the clay in place.  In just 6 days, the wart was GONE.  I'm a happy camper!  - Cheryl M.

Plantars Warts
I've been using clay on bandages on my feet and taking clay baths and foot baths, they are almost gone. I've got 3 of them that have been so severe that they were altering my gait and causing other foot problems (hammer toe).  – Linda W.

Black Wart
I had a black wart appear on the side of my temple about a year ago....darn thing was driving me crazy, as it made me look like I had a longer eye brow on one side...LOL. Doctor couldn't get rid of it at all, I tried every OTC wart remedy available. Well, I think you know where I'm going with this....it's almost gone from applying the Living Clay a few times day. It's so faint now that I expect it will be invisible in the next few days. I will also show this to the doctor. - Georgene

Skin Mole
Just a note about skin moles. I had read the info from Phil who used the clay for a wart under his eye with great success. So, I tried putting the clay on a skin mole I have had for 15+ years on my jaw line. Guess what? Hooray, the mole is almost gone. I work 7 days a week and can't wear it during the day. But every night for the last week I have been putting it on before bed and now since it works, I am trying it on other moles. Gotta love the clay!!  - Joann F.

Mole and Wart
I'm taking the clay and when I use it as a mask, layers of skin peeled off a mole I had on my face!!!  And, I had a small wart on my finger that just fell off, (and actually left a small hole!), but I never put the clay on it, so that must have come from ingesting it.  AMAZING!!! - Rosemary

Age Spots and Skin Tags
Just drink the clay, I believe that's why my skin tags are gone and I had age spots on my hands that are gone too. - Susan M.

Age Spots
I have had significant lightening of age spots since I started using the clay. The cleaning of one's liver is a major action of the clay and the spots lighten as a by-product of liver cleaning. Perry's skin is gorgeous! And I'm going for the number two spot! Drink the clay it will help much more than simply placing it on the skin. I've even had friends and family remark on how much my hands have changed as a result of the lightening. - Justine F.

Clay Lightening Freckles
I never had an age spot, but clay has definitely made my freckles invisible. I believe the gentle exfoliating nature of clay is what removes the pigment on the top  layers of the skin. Good stuff! Blessings & Peace - Georgene

Red Rash & Severe Exhaustion & Fatigue
One of my important customers Keisha, from Salts and Scents (Boston, MA) recommended your products to me and I recently made a purchase for the Detox Clay Powder.  I just had to send an email to let you know what happened.

I had an unusual rash/red discoloring on various parts of my body, was suffering from severe exhaustion/fatigue. Keisha suggested that it was from a build up of toxins in my system and suggested to try your product to "detox" my system and see what would happen.

The company immediately sent out the product I ordered and included a couple free samples.  I was very impressed with the professionalism, customer service and products.  

It has been 1 week since using your products.  I made a liquid version where I took 1 part to 4 parts water and blended it and drank it internally, took a bath with it, and used the clay mask.  I started off drinking 1oz a day and worked up to 2/3 times per day.  In the beginning I got a surge of energy, but then I took a turn for the worse - nauseous, lethargic - just felt horrific.  *(Editors note: Notice she took a 1 to 4 ratio.  Very concentrated. The correct blend is 1 to 8. This speeded the detoxing and it was bringing up the toxins faster than they could be carried out of the body thus the Detox reactions. In a case like this slow down on the amount but do not stop. It is working.)

Today - one week later - I feel better than I ever have.  The rash is GONE, I have energy and feel great.  I was tempted a few days ago to call and yell at Keisha.  I thought she poisoned me - but now that the worse has passed - I want to give her a big hug.  It must have been my body detoxing and going through what it needed to to get rid of the buildup.  My skin looks so much better and people have noticed.I hope I do not go through what I did again, it was awful.  Hopefully the worse part has passed. I am now a huge fan and plan on continuing to use your wonderful products. Huge Hugs and Smiles! - Sherri W.

Psoriasis
I have been using clay for about a month now , in that month I have noticed an increase in my energy, I feel better. I also have noticed that all my Psoriasis has disappeared completely, I tried cortisone creams for years. My friends and husband have noticed a brighter appearance in my face. I am so thankful for your clay and plan on keep using it the rest of my life. I love taking clay, would rather miss a meal than miss taking and using my clay.  I have told many of my friends about your product. - Linda R.

Psoriasis  Solution
I had psoriasis on my legs for 2 years. I had found nothing that would give me any relief. I had tried the steroid pills and creams and that helped very little, besides all the side effects can be worse than the original problem so finding an alternative was the only way to go for me. I tried other miracle cures on the internet that was a big waste of money and then I remembered reading a book about the benefits of clay. So I started reading all I could find on the internet about clay. My Psoriasis  kept getting worse until I started using clay packs and taking it internally. I also took a probiotic capsule 2 to 3 times a day. Within 3 months the psoriasis hascleared up except that the skin is slightly darkened where they were. But these places should clear up with a little sunshine. If clay will heal psoriasis then I have every confidence that it will heal acne.

Since I found your website I haven't quit telling people how great clay is for your health. One unexpected benefit of drinking the clay that I wasn't expecting was that in the mornings when I would get out of bed, my joints weren't stiff anymore. I realized then, if the clay was taking the inflammation out of the Psoriasis it was working in the rest of my body. I've told everyone I know about clay and how wonderful it is. I'm so glad that I found the about clay website. Thank you guys. - Bronwyn D.

Psoriasis
I just started using the clay about two weeks ago.  AMAZED!  I've been struggling with psoriatic arthritis for over a year now.  I'm on heavy duty meds that took care of the severe pain in 10 of my joints but I'm still having issues with a really bad psoriasis patch on my back (mid-spine).  It always itches and it hurt to the touch.  The first night I put a clay "mask" on the skin rash it actually started hurting more and throbbing.  I figured it was doing something and with hope in my mind that is what was happening I finally drifted off to sleep.  MIRACLE!  I awoke and washed of the dried clay with a warm, wet washcloth.  My eyes were still sleepy and had to keep rubbing them.  The flakiness was gone, it didn't itch, and it didn't hurt.  I could hardly believe my eyes.  I have continued to put the clay on my spot for about a week and a half now and after the first day of surprises the rash turned bad again although it still did not itch and it did not hurt.  This didn't discourage me because I read the book (read the part about acne too for my daughter - and remembered reading that the acne/rashes could appear to get worse again).  Indeed the rash did look almost as bad as it did before but it still did not itch or hurt.  Needless to say as the days go on it is slowly disappearing.  And I believe that is because I finally got brave and began consuming the clay as well.  That grossed me out at first but realized it is no big deal at all.  It has a wonderful smooth pudding consistency with no flavor.  So I take the prescribed amount and help to wash it down with a glass of water.  And the overall feeling of well-being since beginning to consume the clay 5 days ago is such a wonderful feeling.  I also used the clay in my scalp as the psoriasis is really bad there as well.  I have an overly thick head of hair and had to use a lot of clay to get it through all the hair.  I let it dry for 30 minutes, rinsed it out good, and then used the tangerine/almond soap to wash my hair.  I also did a face mask with the clay that night and brushed my teeth with the clay.  I can't remember feeling that good from my neck up in a very long time. I'll be 50 in March 2012.  (**Editor’s note this was received. July 1, 2011.)  And the next day at work was utterly amazing to not be brushing white flakes off my black Formica desk every 30 minutes.  I have spent lots of money on expensive shampoos for my scalp and paid hundreds of dollars for prescription creams for the psoriasis on my back - none of which worked.  And to think I could have been using clay all this time.  I am so glad my neighbor at the end of my street had a chance conversation with me where my psoriasis issue came up.  Needless to say she has been using the clay for a long time.  She and her husband have been using it for everything and she told me the other day when they discovered a nail in their tire, her husband just sporadically said, "get the Living Clay, that takes care of everything....LOL"    I simply love the stuff and have been telling everyone I know about it.  Some think I'm crazy and I really don't care.  They will soon see too.  They will not be able to avoid noticing how young and vibrant it is making me feel in such a short time.  I can't wait to see where I am a couple months down the road knowing how much it has changed my life in just under two weeks.  Sincerely, - Sandy C.

Scleroderma and Dermatitis
I heard about Living Clay from a friend who takes it.  I have scleroderma, which is an autoimmune disorder.  My symptoms include painful lesions on my fingers, swelling of my face and fingers, and dermatitis on my face.  My rheumatologist told me there is nothing that can be done to fix the underlying problem because we don't really know what causes scleroderma.  I was prescribed medications to treat the symptoms and was told to "just be glad I am young and healthy".  Well, the meds I was prescribed did not fix the symptoms and the flare-ups seem to come and go on their own. 

About 5 weeks after I began drinking the clay my dermatitis went away.  I am 35 now and there has not been one day for 5 years that I could go out in public without my face completely covered with makeup. Now, not only are the redness and plaques associated with dermatitis gone, but my skin has a glow to it and my wrinkles are significantly less noticeable!

Drinking the clay has also helped to heal the lesion on my flared-up finger at a much faster rate than normal.  Even more noticeable than this though, was what happened when I applied the clay as a paste to the scab on the surface of the lesion.  After about 15 min, the clay cracked apart and a pussy fluid began draining from inside the lesion.  Wow.  I was blown away!

7 people I know have already ordered Living Clay because they cannot believe the amazing transformation it has caused in my face.  I tell more and more people about the miracle of Living Clay everyday. The clay and your company are truly changing lives.  I can't thank you guys enough! Your Friend, Kristina S

Eczema
My son was diagnosed with Asthma when he was 2 years old. He is now 7 years old and has always had problems with eczema but over the past year it has gotten worse. He would go through the day at school itching and then come home itching. He has tried several steroid creams from the doctor as well as oatmeal baths, benadryl, and even monitoring what he was eating. It is so mind boggling and hurtful not knowing how to help your child when they are in pain. I put him in the clay bath and he immediately began to tell me how great it felt on his body. I let him relax and lie down in it. He is usually itching by the time he gets out of the tub and will continue to itch the rest of the night. It had become a major distraction for him when he was trying to practice his singing at night. He couldn’t stand still and concentrate without having to stop and scratch. After he got out of the tub I noticed he wasn’t itching and I asked him how he felt and he said good. I told him that if he started itching later on that night to let me know. At bedtime, he still wasn’t itching. I asked him when he woke up the next morning if he was itching and again he said no. This has truly been a blessing to him. I thank God for this product.  I will continue to use the clay because it is so relieving to see him not itching and happy. That is something I haven’t seen in almost a year. - Cecelia L.

83 Year with Full Body Eczema Helped with Clay
Old My mother is 83 years old.  She and my dad birthed nine children plus took in two foster children.  When growing up we thought my mother had the most beautiful skin, including a scarless stomach after naturally birthing all of us.  Mom would always talk about controlling her eczema.  We don’t know what she was doing but it must have been working back then because we never noticed. 

Then at age 15 I began to notice the eczema she always talked about.  It was on the back of her neck, and on the bend of her legs and arms.  Wow, it was really awful.  This was also the same time that I really paid attention and noticed that she was not just drinking coffee and beer but alcohol, plus smoking.  I am guessing that the drinking was the cause the major flare ups at this time;   it flared, she got it under control and then it flared.  This went on for a long time.  Somewhere between 55 and 65 she seemingly had it under control, but this was also when she for the first time took a job, all nine children were grown and gone.  Does this mean children cause eczema J

Around 66 years old it got out of hand again but nothing like the out of control a little over a year ago.

I live in NC and she lives in DC.  The family refers to me as Dr.  North Carolina.  I don’t believe in pharmaceuticals, GMO’s, chemical treated foods, cosmetics, household cleaners, etc.  I research and find natural herbs, oils, food, cleaners, etc.  I used cosmetic clay on my face for years.  At my age of 56, I do not have wrinkles and am very healthy—no colds, flu for probably 30 years+.  Anyways, last year my sisters start telling me that my mom whom generally walks about 1-2 miles everyday was not going out the door.  This was because her skin was so messed up with eczema.  What they described to me did not come close to what I saw when I got there to visit.  Thank God I was saddled with “Bentonite Clay”. I use to only used this living clay internally and bath and topical treatments with the another clay. (This has now changed)  The other got so it would not dissolve.

WOW!   My mom scared me.  She actually looked like an alligator from head to toe. Her skin, if you called it skin, was so crusty and brittle.  Her eyes were red and she was clearly scared to death.   I could have just fallen out in the floor.  But, I held it together.  My mom use to listen to all my remedies but would implement only a very few.  She was ready now for my home remedy, except she was kicking and screaming all the way.  I think this behavior would be called ambivalence.

Day 1  I made up a clay pomade and from head to toe I covered her and allowed her to sit for 15 minutes or so.  I put mom in a 6 foot bathtub of water as hot as she could stand it.  Well, as hot as I thought she could stand it.  She had drama going on all the way.  I put three full cups of clay in the tub and sat with her for 30 minutes constantly pouring the water over her neck and chest.  I had her drink cool water while sitting in the tub.  When she got out I patted her down and put “Nutiva” extra virgin organic coconut oil all over her, head to toe, wrapped her in a large towel and put her in the bed where she stayed for 2 hours. 

The next day we scheduled for me to come over to repeat this process.  When I got there she was looking better already.  The bed had scales from the eczema.  She was happy but unhappy.  She did not like the hot bath.  We repeated the process and this time I mixed a tiny bit of clay along with water into a dropper bottle and put a drop in each eye. 

Day 3:  When I got there she took forever to open the door.  What a hoot she is.  When I finally got in she looked even better and her eyes were clear—well as clear as they get for 83 years old, drinking and smoking; they were no longer red.  I soon discovered that she had had someone turn the temperature down on her hot water heater so that the water was luke warm.  HA, HA!  I fooled her!.  I ran some luke warm water and put her in.  Then, I put a huge pot of water on the stove and heated it, mixed the clay into the pot and slowly poured it in.  She was peeved!  My sister came in and all of a sudden my mom pretended that she fainted.  We went with her drama and took her out but she was in there for about 15-20 minutes.  Another coconut oiling down and back in bed.

On Day 4:  When I arrived, she quickly opened the door.  What a smile!  Her skin was smooth as a baby’s butt.  Oh my gosh.  The family and friends were all amazed.  She is so happy.  This was over a year ago and her skin is still smooth because she continues with her modified treatments.  She will not get in the tub alone—she lives alone.  What she does is mix the clay with purified water and puts it on her skin everywhere she can reach, then rinses it off many hours later.  Sometimes she says she sleeps with it on areas that give her the most trouble, bend of arms and legs.  In addition, she has begun the drink clay water.  She started out with eight ounces per day and has since decreased to a few ounces per day (this is the reverse of what I asked her to do but it has worked for her).

I wish I had before and after pictures. 

When my mother went to her dermatologist for her quarterly shot, that was not doing any good, he was amazed and wanted to know what she used.  My mother said she told him that her other doctor (Dr North Carolina) gave her a treatment.  He asked what and she refused to tell him because she says the dermatologist would begin to advocate against the clay since they do not make any money on it. She no longer is taking shots—that is, for the eczema.

This summer past my mother for the first time that I can remember attended the family reunion with a no-sleeve top!  She strutted and danced all day.  Oh how happy all of us are!

Paul and Patty gifted me your book with one of my purchases.  My mother kept it for several months sharing it with all her girlfriends.  She is an authority now!!!!  When I finally got the book back from her, I shared it with Barbara who has it tucked away.  I never got to read the entire book so I will get your new book soon.

Now my mother has my sisters and brothers using the clay.  Everyone has their own story.  It is amazing.

I use clay for everything.  I use it as a thickening for gravy, I drink it and bath in it to detox, I give myself facials about 2 -3 times a week, a couple times a week after flossing I coat my teeth and gums with it and let it sit for 5 – 10 minutes while I iron –two things happen, 1) my teeth and gums seem much healthier and, 2) it pulls up any mucus in my chest and throat.  I clean with it and have even used it to remove stains from clothing.  My plants seem to like it too.  They all have big beautiful leaves. - Brenda J.

Eczema Improves 99% in 6 weeks
I have eczema. The clay has helped this condition 99% since March 5th (now April 12th). I love what the clay has done for my skin, hair, and dryness of the skin has disappeared. I only soak my feet twice a week. I love the change in my body and I feel much better. - Diane W.

Itchy Bumps under Arms
I just personally witnessed another miracle with Living Clay. I had a client that I had been working on for 2 ½ years (ear coning and colonics). Under her arms were these red bumps that itched. The skin would peel from this area. She said she’d had this for as long as she could remember. She had never gone to a doctor. Just before moving from Los Angeles, I worked on her several times-ear coning and colonics. I moved to Charlotte, NC with my arms full of red itchy bumps. At night they seemed to get overwhelmingly itchy. One time I scratched so hard I drew blood. I use tea tree oil as a deodorant and I could no longer use it because it now stung. I first covered my underarms topically with LC Hydrated clay and it felt so cool and soothing. It would stop the itching temporarily. After doing this a couple of times I noticed the areas under my arms had begun clearing up. That  night I took 4 LC Clay capsules I had made then two more soon after I went to bed. I was also bathing in the Clay powder. That night I went through something emotional. I awoke the next morning and noticed my underarms had cleared up even more over night. The next day, I took 6 more capsules. The horrific rash of bumps was almost completely gone! Incredible. Still some slight itching. The 3rd day I took 4 capsules and a clay bath. I have also been using your soap and brushing my teeth with the clay. My underarms are free of bumps and itching and the horrible uncomfortable madness is gone.  That is one thing I could identify that energetically got passed from my client to me! I wonder how many other things I am holding that my clients have released that I’m not aware of. I think LC Clay is excellent protection for practitioners that work in others energy. Amazing. I feel soooo much better. Clay… God’s gift to mankind. - Moonlite

Clay Heals Underarm Sore and is a Deodorant
I wanted to share another use of clay that I have found to be of a great benefit for me.  I had a sore under my right arm pit from scratching too hard, and made my pit raw the size of the sore was 2x2 inch... after I showered and dried myself, I put some of the dry clay powder into both of my arm pits. ( it felt so good under the pit with the sore - I wanted to put some under both)  The clay healed my sore in two days.. I now use the clay for deodorant.  The clay keeps me dry all day long.. It does not leave any clay on my clothes under the pit area. I apply about 1/8 teaspoon under both arms.  I now have a new deodorant. The clay feels so smooth under the pit.  I am loving this clay. - Diane W.

Scarring Reduced with One Use
I had a full body mask last night and I know I'm not seeing things but scars that I had since I was younger looked liked they are disappearing after one application. I was not expecting this. When I first put the clay on it looked as if it was not doing much because it dried so quickly. When I rinsed the clay off there was a difference enough for me to see. - Ursula

Clay for Hives and Headache
I have to tell you how much your clay has saved my bacon.  The first night after taking this olive leaf extract that apparently is extremely potent, I broke out in hives all over my hips/thighs.  They told me not to take any medications, let it all come out, so the only thing I had was the clay.  I bathed in it twice a day with 1/2 cup and no hives after that.  When I get a headache, I just take a bath and put some on my head and it's gone.  Drinking it too. - Barbara H.

Hand Rash
It was my sister's birthday so I bought her some Bentonite clay.  When I brought her present to her I had also given her a small sample of the clay which had already been prepared.  Just a day prior to my visit , my sister broke out with tiny pus-like pimples all over both of her hands.  Not only did her hand look "diseased" but she complained terribly about the itch.  I was so happy I had provided her with a prepared sample along with her present.  I urged her to immediately apply the clay to her hands and within a half hour the itching had subsided.  I told her to use it as often as possible and she told me within a couple of days the rash had disappeared. We don't know exactly what caused this skin outbreak but apparently it was an allergic reaction to something.  The calcium Bentonite clay eradicated the problem.  Imagine -- no waiting in the doctor's office, no harmful drugs with side affects.  This product is wonderful!! - Gail P.

Rash Gone Over Night
This Living Clay is so great! I've had a rash on my face for a few days and decided to use the clay on it last night. And OMG....it cleared it right up! I'm so happy!!!!! Love this clay!!! Thank you so much! - Susan M.

Monstrous Skin Rash
We use Living Clay in our green smoothies EVERY morning...  in the tub for a nice, soothing, detoxifying soak weekly and I use it to brush my teeth... the gum disease is going away and my teeth are revitalizing! It's also getting rid of bacteria in my mouth and internal parasites as well. I was absolutely plagued for nearly 3 years by a monstrous skin rash all over my body... Living Clay has been a VITAL part of my detoxification and rejuvenation program! It's the BEST thing I've used in 65 years!! I LOVE recommending it to others because of what the clay has done for me! - Jan J.

Oily Skin – LC Creams & Lotions
I wanted to write in to tell you just how much I love all the products I've tried from the Living Clay Co. The clay mask is hands down the best product I've ever used to control my oily skin without drying it out. After falling in love with the mask, I began trying other products, and I now own nearly the entire line. The bar soaps smell amazing, and knowing that I'm not using chemicals on my skin every day in the shower makes me feel good. I've gotten my mom and aunt hooked on the soaps as well! I also use the facial moisturizer in the morning and night, and it works wonders. My newest obsession, however, is the Green Tea Citrus body cream. The scent is so light and clean, and the cream is not heavy or greasy at all. It hydrates my skin so well, and keeps me feeling refreshed all day long. I want to thank you and your staff so much for being devoted to making wonderful products that are truly pure and beneficial for my skin. I am a Living Clay fan for life! - Nell S.

Tossed her Mary Kay
I am a former Mary Kay director.  I have used Mary Kay for 13 years.  I use to be very shallow minded about products for my face and body...and I would only use Mary Kay.  I was determined to believe that it was the best and always would be.  About 2 months ago I acquired some samples of Living Clay stuff from a very wonderful friend and I figured...well she’s so sweet; one of my best friends...might as well try it and tell her what I think about it.  I can really give people an honest opinion about skin care...even if it hurts.  LOL.  Anyway, I tried it!  I was floored.  I kept trying it and I just knew that it had to just be something that would not last, that my skin would adjust and then start acting up again....well I am happy to say, I have a NEW product that I am totally standing by now.  All my Mary Kay stuff went out the window...and Living Clay Skin Care went on my shelf.  I am now waiting for a final step ...a mineral face powder of some sort....totally ready to toss the Mary Kay protectant out the window too.  That’s how much I love Living Clay Products.  If you just try this product you will never want anything else on your face or body again.  I have seen the care and work that goes into this product first hand...its worth every penny, plus more if you ask me.  I want everything on my shelf they make, its all just wonderful stuff. - Melissa H.

Better Than Expensive Makeup
I just want to take this opportunity to tell you that my wife used to buy very expensive makeup, (Shiseido) and she feels that the similar products made by/for Living Clay Co. are superior, and even though they are expensive compared to the stuff you find at the drug store, they are not expensive at all when compared to the premium makeup manufacturer’s products, and they are better, so they are a better value. And of course your products use all natural ingredients, unlike the other stuff, so they are healthier to use. - Jerel C.

Fountain of Youth
Last week, while I was in another city on family business, I stopped into a local health food store.  As I began talking to the young man, who by this time had walked from behind the counter to look at the product I had in my hand...my dad walked into the store.  I introduced the young man to my dad as a 91 year old, Pearl Harbor veteran.  The young man couldn't believe it!  Next, I told him my age, 56, and he went on to say loudly...Wow, No Way!
 
Before going out of town, I packed the mini-samples (cleansing clay and body cream) you sent me when I ordered the bentonite 'living' clay (it is truly ALIVE)!  The sample containers were perfect for this trip...no concern about spillage, very small, and only two products!  I only used those products...drum roll please....for just 2 days and saw immediate results in the rejuvenation of my skin tone and complexion!  THAT'S THE TRUTH!  So much so that the young man in the store concluded with...he thought I was a college student!  Now, from my recollection, people do not look at a 56 year old woman and think of college!  I know I don't!  Well, we do have good genes in our family, and I've worked hard over the years to take care of myself, but I noticed the change in my skin tone (which I never had a problem with before) and complexion about a year ago!  Your products reversed and restored that which was coming against everything I worked hard to achieve over the years...visible, excellent health from the inside out!  It's an answer to my prayers!  Just had to tell you that and 'Thank You' again! - Mary M.

Pregnancy Mask
I had twins about 4 years ago...and because of extra hormones....I got what doctors call a pregnancy mask.  Its like dark patchy discolored areas on your face.  It can be on your nose, cheeks and for head.  Fortunately mine was just on my forehead...but it was very dark and I was totally embarrassed by it.  I would never even think about leaving the house without my makeup on.  Well I started using Living Clay Products...and oh my gosh...you should see my forehead.  I have been using it for about a month now....just a little in the morning and at night....and you can barely see anything.  My skin is all even and it just looks wonderful.  I have tried everything this past four years to get rid of the problem and doctors just pretty much had told me to get use to it....but thanks to Living Clay...its almost gone. Thank you so much. - Melissa H.

Cysts and Varicose Veins
Just wanted to share my experiences regarding two cysts that I have on the top of my head. I have been using the clay since Mar 2008. For awhile, I used only the Living Clay internally, then for awhile I used the Terramin internally. I like the Living Clay much better. I still like the Terramin for external applications. Also, for a few weeks, I was taking the Living Clay 2oz. in the am and 2oz. in the pm. I was trying to always take the clay on an empty stomach followed with water as recommended. It got to be hard to maintain that schedule. For the last month, I have been consistently taking 1 1/2 - 2oz. every morning. The good news-- the two cysts have been greatly reduced. Also, I work 7 days a week and am on my feet a good deal of everyday. Because of this, I have varicose veins which have been reduced and the circulation in my legs has improved. - Joan

Fever Blister
Just wanted to tell everyone I am very new in the clay family. But I got a fever blister on my lip like in the corner which was really sore and yucky looking, I decide to try the clay....I wet my lip with water got a little dry clay and stuck it on the blister at night before bed did that 3 nights and now I am looking for the blister......thought that was very impressive....how fast it dried it up....you can see where it used to be, very faint. - Violet

Growth on Forehead
My husband had surgery scheduled to remove a 'growth' on his forehead. He's balding and has lots of skin damage from sun. This one spot kept getting worse and was sticking up. Skin cancer, he thought. I had to force him to let me treat it with hydrated clay. After the second application, it came off. The thing was like a rock and now there's a small indentation there. I'll bet that goes away. - Paula

Clay Heals Basal Cell Carcinoma
some info on the Calcium Bentonite clay. I was recently diagnosed with a Basal Cell Carcinoma on my upper back. I'd been listening to the shows on clay and I had a small bucket that I had never used. Thought I'd give it a try. I had first treated this with topical iodine At the recommendation of an Italian oncologist using alternative cancer therapies. The lesion did go away but came back with a vengeance. It killed off the surface cells but the root level cells flourished. I then applied clay packs daily. I covered them with Saran Wrap and left the packs on for hours and even overnight. The clay created a huge hole in my back and I was a bit scared but persisted. Layer after layer seemed to be sucked out by the clay until it was a smooth crater like hole about the size of a nickel. It was sore and raw as heck but no infection occurred. The clay seemed to be eating up all the scabs and irritated area as well. The lesion was clean and smooth unlike anything I'd ever seen. The original lesion was the size of a pea. On one day the clay was creating a raised area the size of a silver dollar and you could see it getting bigger by the hour. Anyway from start to finish, I treated this for about 6 weeks. I started with iodine and frankincense on June 24th. The lesion returned July 17th so clay from July 17th until August 11 has completely removed the lesion and I have only a mild redness in the area that is still healing.

Since I found out I had this I have heard the horror stories of having these cut out or treated with chemotherapy and having gaping holes. I also read that they can return after being cut out which is where I felt the clay helped the most. The clay almost acted as a mini "pac man" eating away at the lesion while the surrounding healthy tissue was left entirely intact. A surgeon has no clue how deep the cellular roots of this go but the clay seemed to pull deep into those areas. I am still healing with a very light redness and dryness to the area but the bubbly original raised area has completely gone away. The hole that was created scabbed over 3x (very thick kind of like leather) before it got to the point I am at now. So yes please, pass this on! Thanks for all you do. - Kate P.

Ringworm
My son had ringworm...I know, yuck right.  I had never experienced any problems like this before. I had no clue what to do.  But I did remember hearing that clay extracts the negative out of skin...so I thought, hey I'll try it, see what happens for a few days...and maybe avoid a doctor bill.  Do you know within 4 days of putting the hydrated clay on the ringworm spot...it was all dried up and flaking off.  That’s right, the clay totally got rid of the ringworm and no doctor bill.  I am totally addicted now.  I even drink it now.  I cook with it all the time...so my kids get the benefits of clay too. - Melissa H.

Clay Before Makeup
I just wanted to tell you that I started mixing a little bit of hydrated clay with my moisturizer for my face and I love it! It absorbs any oily spots like my nose, forehead and chin. It gives a nice matte finish. Plus, my eye shadow goes on better and stays on better as well as my lipstick. Just a tiny bit all over my face and neck. - Susan

Sweets Syndrome
I have a skin disorder called Sweets Syndrome. When I went to see my massage therapist, I thought I was on the verge of a breakout (which usually means 1+ month or more on prednisone and another strong medication called Dapsone). She had recently bought some green calcium bentonite clay. We made a poultice of this clay and she gave me a little to take home with me. With 1 more poultice and 1 clay bath I was able to completely heal my skin and prevent a breakout – without resorting to major medication! - Sunny M.

Injuries

Thorn Removal
I just read about the white head success. I had my own weird thing here yesterday. I bought a house in 2005 in central Pa. Well I have this really unusual flower that grows from seeds under my living room window. It gets these kiwi sized seed pods on it that have thorns on outside sort of like a horse chestnut. I collected the seed pods off last year's vines in the fall and saved them in a plastic box. If I do not do that the seeds scatter all over the yard and come up in all the wrong places from the winter winds. So I cracked open the seed pods and scattered a few seeds back in the flower bed for this year's crop. I was going to use the rest of the seeds to share with friends who many want them. Anyhow - while cracking open the prickly things I managed to get some thorn spikes in my fingers. Most I managed to pull completely back out. One stuck in my finger and stayed. It was deep. I tried working on it with tweezers last night with no success. I even trimmed some of the callus like skin off with finger nail clippers trying to access the thorn. It hurt. It was getting swollen. So before bed I put a thick blob of hydrated clay on it and put a band aide over it. This morning when I touched the band aide where the clay was it really hurt. So just a bit ago I sat down with desk light and tweezers and pealed the band aide back. I had to flick away some strange blobs of clay that were weird colored and then I found the thorn piece with tweezers. I lifted it right out. It was bigger piece than I thought it was, but it is out! I put the band aide back on with more clay on the wound to draw out any puss or other stuff in there. - Karen

Weeping Leg Ulcer
I had been battling a 5.5 inch painful, weeping leg ulcer with antibiotics with no success when I thought to try the clay. I applied a generous amount of the hydrated clay to the wound and covered it. It was cold at first and gradually became warm.  When I felt the heat I put a 2nd poultice on. In 24 hours my leg ulcer has dried to a scab and little flaky skin and was reduced to one fourth of an inch in size. I am now applying a 3rd poultice to clear up that last one fourth inch. - Mike T.

Sports Injury
A few weeks ago, my husband hurt his arm doing martial arts. Fortunately, I had a sample of the living clay muscle rub & used it on him. The next morning, he was surprised at how much better his arm felt! Thank you, Perry, for posting the ingredients! I had all of them & make my own muscle rub now & use it on my feet. It feels so good & it has helped my problem foot heal. Plus, I've used it on cuts & it takes the pain away within seconds, in addition to helping them heal!!! Truly, a great product! - Gennifer J.

Shoulder Injury
My daughter introduced me to clay several months ago.  She gave me a starter set as a gift.  Earlier this year, I sprained my right shoulder.  I had to take physical therapy on the same shoulder a few years ago, so I was very concerned.  Melanie came over one evening when I was in terrible pain.  She prepared a clay compress, massaged my shoulder, applied the compress, and fixed me a cup of tea.  The pain decreased enough for me to sleep several hours that night.  After continuing the compresses for three or four days, I had achieved almost a full range of motion.  Unbelievable, compared to the weeks of therapy that it took to regain motion in my shoulder several years before. I just wanted to share my story and say "thank you". - Teddy J., Artist

Foot Pain
Severe pain on top of left foot and huge knot:  I don't know what was wrong with my foot. It just started hurting and having severe muscle cramps between my big toe and my ankle. This hurt for months.  I put my foot into a clay bath and honestly, the pain was so bad I almost didn't do the foot bath. But something told me not to stop. So I put the foot in there and the pain subsided. After the foot bath, I put on a clay poultice and left it overnight. The next morning all the pain was gone and has not returned, it's been a week now. I can tell it is not going to come back, the knot is gone, too. – Linda W.

Pulled Hangnail
I pulled a hangnail from the side of my finger. It pulled from deeeep, and hurt. After a while I forgot about it. The next morning when I woke my finger hurt pretty bad and was swollen and hot. I dabbed some of the clay mask on it and in less than a half hour (maybe 5-10 minutes?) the pain was gone - and didn't come back. No infection. Nothing. I was so happy! I'm so thankful for this WONderful clay! - Chloie L.

Cut Finger to the Bone
I have used the clay to  drink  and  I have used to power form to stop  bleeding after I have cut my hand down to the bone I keep the clay on my hand for two weeks and it looked better then if I had went to get it sewed up I will never be without my clay again. - Larry W.

Cyclist
I've been cycling for about 2 months and lately my legs and especially the area around my knees have been really sore. I used the Muscle Rub and it works great. It's a great product! - Serge R.

Neck Injury
I was in a car accident 20 years ago and every single day, I've experienced severe neck, shoulder and back pain. After just one clay pack on my neck, the pain is gone. I used clay packs on my shoulder and lower back once and that pain is hugely reduced. I will continue to work on this. – Linda W.

Pencil Lead under the Skin
I have a friend that had a piece of lead from a pencil stuck under the skin of his cheek, and he was using that clay as a face mask many times a week for acne. After a month it went away. He was thinking of getting it surgically removed, but the clay beat him to it. I love this clay and am proud that I learned about it. - Shane M.

Broken Toe
I wanted to share an experience I had today.  I broke my big toe yesterday, but thought it was just sprained so I
walked around on it all afternoon and iced it a bit. By evening I was in so much pain I couldn't walk and finally went to Urgent Care. They x-rayed and confirmed the break. I went home on crutches and with a post-op boot, am told it will take 4-6 weeks to heal. I slept with my foot elevated last night but woke up several times with throbbing pain, I even broke down and took a dose of a narcotic/ibuprofen for the first time in my life (I even had three children without any painkillers!). The narcotic didn't help. This morning I finally had a second to apply hydrated clay. Within minutes the pain almost completely subsided. According to the fracture specialist, most of the pain is due to swelling and as the swelling goes down the throbbing pain will decrease. The difference the clay made was incredible. I'm just about ready to rinse the dried clay off and apply a second coat because I'm getting achy again, but just wanted to pass this along. Feeling grateful for clay right now. - Jenna

Stubbed Little Toe
I
have listened to the audio information on the 'About Clay' website. So very amazing. I love hearing your voice, and all the great things you have to teach about clay. I've received the shipment of clay, and am using the liquid to drink, and the hydrated clay on my little toe that I stubbed so hard at Christmas time, I think I broke it. I've been waiting for it heal. After 2 applications of the clay, I hardly know it's there. And it seems that even though I've only been drinking it for 3 days, I am feeling so good. Sleeping like a log, and feeling wonderful. Thank you for everything.  - Deb. B.

Infected Toe
I have an injured little toe which can't stand being in a shoe (very inconvenient) and has gotten infected, gradually getting more irritated over 5 or six days. I tried all the usuals, washing, drying, soaking in hot salt water, hydrogen peroxide, and it was just getting redder and oozing. So last night I tried clay (French Green in a paste, directly on the toe.) Bingo! It is SO much better today! I was reluctant to put clay on an open oozing sore, but it really did the trick.  - Adeha

Injured, Swollen Foot
I injured my foot simply by squatting down for an extended period of time.  My left foot was swollen, red, and very warm to the touch. It seemed to get worse when I stood on it. I had not been able to wear a shoe for 2 weeks because the swelling was so bad. I heard your broadcast on the Power Hour and ordered some clay.
 I used the clay on my foot. I could not believe the results.  I made a thick paste like texture with the clay, applied it to my foot approximately 1/4 inch thick. The clay seemed to have a very powerful drawing affect.  Within 30 minutes the swelling was reduced by at least 2/3.  The fluid was coming out of my foot so fast that the clay kept falling off at the point of injury and I had to keep reapplying it until most of the fluid was gone. This stuff is great!   It was amazing. After 3 applications like the one mentioned above, my foot returned to normal with no pain whatsoever. - Joe G.

Dead Skin on Foot
A few days ago I pulled on a piece of dead skin on the bottom of my foot and it went all the way to the quick.  Ouch!  Since it was time for bed, I put lotion on my feet and didn't think about it again......until I put my foot on the floor the next morning.  Every step I took I was painfully aware of what I had done to the ball of my foot.  I got my clay, put a big glob on my foot, covered it with a bandaid and got ready for work.  Hours later, as I was walking down a hall at work, I thought about my foot and realized that I couldn't remember which foot had the bandaid on it!  I didn't feel a thing!  Not until I got home that night and took off my shoes, did I know for sure which foot I had put the clay on.  This clay is awesome! - MH

Sprained Ankle
I
 was 1200 miles from home helping my elderly father move and slipped and fell on his front porch. My ankle appeared to be sprained and cut as well. Fortunately, I had brought some clay with me and packed the ankle within minutes. The pain literally disappeared as if it never happened. I was able to continue packing and drove home that day. I’ve read stories how clay takes the sting out and now I’m a true believer. Clay is AMAZING. It's like American Express. Don't leave home without it!! - Diane J.

Building up Calluses
I recently started playing guitar again after not playing for several years. It had been so long that my finger calluses were gone, and starting out was painful! Luckily, I got the bright idea to dip my fingertips in some clay right after playing. I can't tell you how surprised I was. The pain went away almost immediately, and I never developed any blisters. I keep a jar in my guitar case now.  - Phillip M.

Mouth, Teeth & Gums

Tooth Paste Recipe
I have been mixing 3 drops of tea tree and 6 drops of peppermint to 2oz. of clay, very yummy.  I am sure other combos will work but I think it is a great mix.  My teeth and my gums just feel so clean, and I am sure that my teeth are better off for it. - Sharon

Clay Whitening Toothpaste
For the toothpaste I just mix 2 teaspoons of clay with 3 teaspoons of water, add a couple drops of Oil of Oregano (kills bacteria and virus). I keep it in a small glass container with a glass lid, and cut a plastic knife to fit inside the dish (the knife is used to scoop the paste on to my toothbrush). This stays near the sink-I do not refrigerate it. It has gotten my teeth whiter. They are actually whiter than my bridge, and the Dentist did a teeth cleaning before the bridge work! Blessings. - Becky

Clay for Teeth and Gums
I read that the clay can eventually rebuild, strengthen, and improve our teeth as well as our gums. Well my gums were tremendously improved within a day or so and have stayed that way ever since I have used the use the clay and brush with it. I just love brushing with it and knowing I can swallow it and there are no chemicals. I used to floss more than brush while trying to avoid the fluoride in toothpaste. I would rinse and brush with fluoride free mouthwash and floss but only brush my teeth with toothpaste about once every week or two. Now I brush with my dry clay power around three times a day and my teeth feel so great!!! Amazingly, I have noticed only after two weeks that the enamel has considerably hardened on my teeth which will help prevent cavities in the long run. I am shocked and delighted that the clay can do that so soon. I will never worry about toothpaste again. All I want is my living clay before my food after my food and during food. I like to nibble all day and now I can do that and also take care of my teeth in and around eating. No poisons or pestering taste to endure. – Shirly A.

Periodontal Disease
I had periodontal disease with several #8 pockets a year ago. In Oct. of 2011 I started brushing with the dry Living Clay twice a day and at night packing those areas with the clay. At my last dental check-up I now have #4 pockets and healthy gums. He also said my teeth were very nice and white!! So happy with the Living Clay. – Cindy P.

Clay Tooth Paste Dental Care
I tell everyone that calls and says "what do you use?" about the clay. many have bought and tried it and they call back and say they love it too.I don't use regular toothpaste anymore.  I use stuff from the health food stores with no Fluoride when I don't use the clay mixture.  When I use the clay mixture, I put the Miracle 2 gel on my brush, like a "paste," then I dip my brush in the powder clay, then I put 2 drops of Miracle 2 soap, 2 drops of Oil of Propolis, and 2 drops of Oil of Peppermint.  I tried using myrrh, but that stuff is a little strong.  That is the best stuff there is!  My teeth feel so clean and stay that way all day!  I would love to use it every day!  I actually got the idea because I bought a toothpaste by Burt's Bees, and they had clay in it.  I thought, I can do that!  We had a dentist on our show that said you should not use over the counter toothpastes at all.  He said you should just simply use soap.  Interesting!!! Thanks again. - Debbie

Whiter Teeth
I had the sweetest complement this past week. I was having my teeth cleaned and the dental hygienist asked me if I had been using a "whitener for my teeth"...I thought to my self...great! How am I gonna explain this one!? LOL!! I very bravely, sighed, smiled and calmly said "no, I haven't!"...prepared to leave it at that. But NO... she told me my teeth were a lot whiter than last time I had been there and she just wondered what I was doing? "OK, time to fess up, even if i DO sound crazy" I was thinking to myself..."no, I use clay...calcium bentonite clay." I was waiting for her to drop to the floor laughing, but that didn't happen...not at all! She was fascinated...comes to find out, she has a lot of the same beliefs that I do and is on a learning mission herself for a healthier lifestyle as well! I gave her the clay web site plus talked about some of the other holistic things that have made such a big difference in my life in the last 7 months...it was WONDERFUL! I just LOVE sharing what clay has done for me and this was the perfect opportunity, but I didn't even HAVE to mention it, in fact she kind of had to drag it out of me...I know ...shame on me, but this is another "medical professional" and I just KNEW what was coming....LOL!!  That'll teach me! And "YES" by the way...my teeth are about 2 shades lighter than they had been before, and I drink coffee daily...and they are still a really pretty white! I LOVE my clay!!! - Carol S.

Whiter Teeth Healthier Gums
My teeth and gums have never been better and so beautiful. I used to bleach them which I don't think is a very good thing anyway but now I don't have to because I too brush with the clay. AND my last visit to the dentist, they couldn't believe how nice my teeth were doing. My teeth always feel like I just went for a major cleaning after I brush with the clay. They feel as smooth as a glass surface. - Susan M.

Yellow Teeth
I have had a real problem with very yellow teeth. This is in part because my teeth are naturally not a bright white, but also because I refuse to put flouride in my mouth, and I go through phases where I drink a lot of herbal tea. I keep my toothbrush soaking in H2O2 and have tried several kinds of homemade concoctions - usually baking soda-based. None had any impact on my yellow teeth. The other day I mixed some dry clay with some baking soda, added a wee bit of H2O2, vegetable glycerine, stevia power, and essential oil of peppermint. The only real difference was the clay. After 3 days I noticed that my teeth were several shades whiter. I was so happy. I'm still using it and expecting even better results as time goes by. - Chloie L.

Tooth Pain after Surgery
My mom had some teeth pulled in preparation for dentures and she ran out of a pain gel the Dr. had given her, but still had a lot of discomfort. I suggested she pack her sore gums with clay and it worked like a champ! She did it 3 times a day and all healed nicely and the pain was significantly improved. - Justine F.

Fever Blister
Just wanted to tell everyone I am very new in the clay family. But I got a fever blister on my lip like in the corner which was really sore and yucky looking, I decide to try the clay....I wet my lip with water got a little dry clay and stuck it on the blister at night before bed did that 3 nights and now I am looking for the blister......thought that was very impressive....how fast it dried it up....you can see where it used to be, very faint. - Violet

Cold Sore
I have been doing a detox and got a cold sore. After applying the clay twice, the pain was gone in a couple hours and it only took two days to completely clear. Even with Abreva it takes a couple days, and it leaves the area red for a week. Not this time! Love my clay. - Marelin

Bleeding Gums
My gums bleed when I brush my teeth. (I know that I need to start taking large amounts of Vit. C as this is a major symptom of lack of C) But I thought I'd try packing my teeth with clay at night as an experiment first. As experiments go--this was a winner! The first morning after packing dry clay on my gum line at night, the bleeding was less than half. The second morning, barely pink and the third morning -- no bleeding at all. And my gums look healthier in color. So, guess I'll be taking C AND packing my teeth/gums every night. - Renee G.

Gum Disease Disappearing with Clay
We use Living Clay in our green smoothies EVERY morning...  in the tub for a nice, soothing, detoxifying soak weekly and I use it to brush my teeth... the gum disease is going away and my teeth are revitalizing! It's also getting rid of bacteria in my mouth and internal parasites as well. I was absolutely plagued for nearly 3 years by a monstrous skin rash all over my body... Living Clay has been a VITAL part of my detoxification and rejuvenation program! It's the BEST thing I've used in 65 years!! I LOVE recommending it to others because of what the clay has done for me! - Jan J.

Clay on Cavities
The most impressive thing that happened to me with the clay dealt with my mouth.  Over the past several years, in spite of meticulously brushing and flossing my teeth, I have had an acidic PH in my mouth and many cavities.  Prior to beginning the clay, I had been diagnosed with 5 more cavities after only 6 months.  I had 3 of them taken care of and then I made an appointment to have the remaining 2 taken care of.  At the time of the first appointment, I had just begun to use the clay powder to brush my teeth (prior to bedtime) and tongue and then after I would rinse, I would put more clay powder on my brush and brush it all over my teeth and around the gum line and let it remain there.  Because of various circumstances, it was another month till I was able to go back to the dentist for my appointment.  When I went in, the dentist and the hygienist were both confused as they looked for the two cavities they were supposed to fill.  They could not find them.  I know that they were previously there because they had used the metal pick and I had felt where they poked into the holes.  I told the dentist about the clay and he said that the area must have re-mineralized.  They were both excited about it and they took down the information for the websites and I recommended Perry A~’s book to them.  I will definitely continue on tooth brushing with the clay as I enjoy stronger, healthier teeth which are also whiter looking.  Thank you for pointing out all the good uses of this product. - Donna J.

Healthy Teeth and Bone Density
When I moved to a new town I kept putting off finding a new dentist. Finally my teeth begin to feel unclean and I made an appointment. It was then I realized I had not been to the dentist in 4 years.  I dreaded going.  The good news is I had been brushing my teeth with a calcium Bentonite clay all this time.  I merely put a glob of the hydrated clay ion my tooth brush and tipped it off with a little store bought toothpaste for a better flavor.  I noticed my teeth felt smoother can clean and were much less yellow.  About twice a month I would pack my gums with the dry powder and sleep with it in all night. .  When I got my check up and cleaning I was astounded at the good report. No cavities and he said I should keep my teeth until I am 102 years old because of the bone density. He also said my gums were healthy and I had no loose pocket.  Did I mention I am 71 years young and have all my teeth. I attribute this good report to Living Clay. - Mary T

Bone Infection
Have just been to my new Dentist.  My LAST Dentist did a root canal filling Christmas before last.  Last November most of it fell out and I went to a new Dentist.  The tooth was refilled.  From that time on I have had chronic ear earache, an abscess on the tooth, (which I cured, only to infect again). Am now on my 15th  dose of antibiotics.  Today the tooth was opened up and the whole story is complete.  Previous dentist only filled two of the three roots on the tooth.  Hence I now have a massive bone infection that will take up to twelve months to get rid of. Your marvellous clay (Living Clay) has done a miraculous job. Previous infection took six weeks to get the swelling down.  It is only four days and most of the swelling has gone.  I am applying a topical compress three times a day. Took your advice and didn't over-do it, also my dogs are receiving the benefit of this wonderful detox product.  I am feeling almost back into the land of the living, was soooo spaced out last Monday, and miserable. - Carol

Abscessed Tooth
What a miracle! I had an abscessed tooth and was beginning to get the toxins spread into my throat and my ears. I called my sister-in-law to see what she thought I should do. I can't take antibiotics they always seem to cause me problems and was not prepared to deal with that again. She had just purchased the clay in powder form and ran some over to me to try. Within two hours after applying a paste to my abscess it had drawn the infection out. I continued to apply the paste that night and the next day to fully heal the tooth and I was infection free. Since the clay worked so well on my tooth I decided to use it for a mask on my face and wow what a difference it made in my skin. Needless to say I am in the process of purchasing my own clay. - Laura G.

Abscessed Tooth & Swollen Jaw
Clay triumphs again!!!!!!! I met with my friend to give him the 4 pound tub of clay to take on the plane and could not believe the difference in his face. The red, hot, angry swelling was completely gone and he said he had no pain in the tooth and only a slight pain right where the jaw hinges which was probably from him clenching his jaw from the pain. The amazing thing is he was not able to use the clay that much as he had to work. He was only able to apply the hydrated on the outside for an hour once during the day but then did apply it and leave it on all night. He also packed the tooth with dry clay and took some internally several times. I told him...... "Do not stop using it even though it seems to be better." So he will keep up the hydrated on his face and neck plus dry around the tooth and drinking liquid 2 x's daily till he gets back a week from today. Now he's all excited about clay and wants me to print out almost everything off the aboutclay website for him. Looks like you've got another believer. And he was amazed when he saw my leg were the cat had literally chewed it up. I would have a hard time proving anything happened as there's not even much in the way of scabbing. - Mary Lee S.

Parasites

Worms in Stool
My neighbor is an older woman and was not feeling well. Her doctor told her it was "just old age" because he couldn't find anything specific causing her symptoms. I told her to try the clay and see if she started feeling better. About 2 weeks after she started taking it she called me all upset and angry one night to tell me that the "dirt" I had given her must have had worm eggs in it because she had just gone to the bathroom and passed gobs of worms. I told her it wasn’t the clay that had worms. It was her. - Mary Lee S.

Parasites & Clay
Well, it's like this. I was channel surfing the other night and stopped on Discovery Channel. Which had a guy talking on the usefulness of ridding parasites from your body using clay. He showed how those organisms cling to the human body and cause all kinds of problems.  He had a jar of what they looked like and said that parasites will cling to the clay and then it will pass thru your system. Then you should feel better. He said you need to drink (I think) a teaspoon a day. He also mentioned that the Native American Indians used clay. I am a firm believer in the old folk cures. And I am tired of being the guinea pig on "well maybe its this or that crap."  I want to feel better again. My autoimmune system is messed up from surgery last year (gall bladder). And have chronic fatigue and the fibromyalgia. With time on my hands I do a lot of research.  I had read where your body could be a small apartment complex for those parasites. And I want to detox my body inside and out. That's when I saw the show and said what the heck. Then I did my search on the internet and found your site. You had a lot of information and it didn't read like the others did of the miracle "snake oil cure". So, let's see where this new adventure takes me. Besides my dog eats dirt and grass and has more common sense than the "professionals" I went to see about my illness. - Karen A.

Cat with Cysts
I have an elderly cat, Big Guy, who has been my companion for over twelve years. I rescued him as a tiny kitten. He's in good health except for a large cyst on top of his head near his ear. The vet won't remove it, as he doesn't want to do surgery on a cat his age if not absolutely necessary. Occasionally, I notice that Big Guy has been scratching the cyst, and it has bled a bit. This really worried me, so I started putting a dab of the hydrated clay on it when he was quiet or asleep and didn't realize what I was doing! If he knew, he would promptly lick his paw and remove the stuff, but I figured that it wouldn't hurt his insides either! I notice that when I use this clay on the cyst, it gets smaller, the sore places dry up and he doesn't seem to be bothered by it. So I'm going to keep using it on him as long as the cyst is there. We'll see if it disappears. That would be something! - Lia Marie

Abscess on Cat’s Spine
Doctors as well as vets do not seem to know anything other than what they are programmed with, they get stuck in a box with no windows, and given a script of life to follow, or else. On a Thursday evening I noticed a lump on my cats spine-found a large area of puss. I cut the hair away and applied hydrated clay and Press'n Seal. The next morning I re-dressed the wound with new clay-the puss was reduced greatly, even started to solidify. Took the cat to the vet that evening for an antibiotic shot, just to be on the safe side, I did not get all the clay off but good enough for the vet to look at the wound. Vet wanted to put in a stint (for drainage-did that before, it took a long time to drain and heal. I said no to the stint, too expensive for an unemployed person. The vet told me NOT to use the clay anymore. Of course I did not listen, I knew better. I placed new clay after vet visit. Replaced Saturday Morning-wow, no puss, only an empty hole. Replaced Saturday evening. I Forgot Sunday morning, by evening it hardened so I had to add water and wait for it to re-hydrate. Monday morning it was completely healed. Blessings. - Becky H.

Constipated, Vomiting 11 Year Old Cat
I did as you suggested, and simply increased the amount of hydrated clay I mixed in my 11 year old cat's canned food. Tremendous difference! Big nicely formed 'tootsie  rolls' two days in a row, and no more vomit. The Living Clay was all it took. Her energy is way up. A wild 'bush bunny' racing around the house! Thanks! - Modini

15 year old Cat loves Living Clay
My cat goes straight for the clay part of the last meal of the day. I just started doing it about a month ago, figured it wouldn't hurt him as he was 15 in August. He really does love the clay and really does eat the food with clay on it first! It surprised me! And I do use the hydrated living clay. He will also lick the clay paste off my finger willingly. I use ~ 1 tsp of the hydrated clay and just pour it in the last of the canned food. I have watched as I do put the clay in different sides of the bowl, etc, and he always eats the clay part first. They know what is good for them! - Gail

Cat Fight Healing

I had been using Living Clay for only a few weeks when one of my cats came in from outside with a 1/2'' hole in its front leg, where its dew claw and pad had been ripped out from being in a cat fight.  I rinsed the wound, packed it with hydrated clay and wrapped it with gauze.  Next day, I removed the gauze but the clay had dried so I left it alone.  The cat licked the clay off over a few days and the wound underneath was pink and healthy. I put fresh hydrated clay on it several times.  I was amazed and know that I saved at least $100.00 on a vet visit.  I was sold!   Thanks for a great product and for your supportive presence among clay users.  You're a blessing. - Jeanette S.

Cat Tumors Gone
Hello!  This summer I participated in one of your teleseminars and submitted a question about whether the clay could heal the large (cancerous-looking) bleeding tumor on my cat’s tail. When the vet shaved it, it looked like a rotten potato attached to his tail –much bigger than his actual tail, so it could not be removed - so the only thing they could offer was amputation.  Well I did not want to do that unless it meant life or death and there were absolutely no other options, so I started using the clay in the meantime just to stop the messy bleeding. 

Well, long story short, my cat cooperated well with me applying the clay and it really helped stop the bleeding.  However, in time an oozing hole developed where the bleeding used to be.  I kept that hole packed with clay, and within an incredibly short time the entire huge tumor had just melted away.  The hole is gone now, there is just a tiny bump left that I can feel at this point.  I continue to apply the clay and will do so until there is no hint anything left but his beautiful tail.  Although my cat was never sick from this, he was acting rather old and depressed, but now he has the energy of a kitten again. 

I gave a co-worker a small jar of clay for the same purpose as her cat also had a VERY large tumor on its neck. When I checked back last week, she said her cat’s tumor had completely dissolved and was in fact also completely gone!  For both these cats, the vets had no treatments other than risky or disfiguring surgery with no guarantees.  I am so glad that I had already purchased the clay for some other reason I can’t even remember. I plan to start using it more diligently to improve my health and also the more difficult to treat problem my other cat has with sinus infection and gum irritation.  Thanks so much for helping spread the miracle.  We are ALL so very grateful!!! - Brenda H.

Smart Cats on Clay
I mix powdered clay into canned cat food and add water till it is all a cream pasty texture (got one senior girl kitty with few teeth). The days I put the clay in their food- the food disappears in record time. Some days when I skip the clay the cats sit there and give me queer looks- like MOM- it's missing something. Or they turn up their nose and ignore it. One day particular I remember they snubbed the non- clay food. I gave in and re-mixed it with the clay- then they dug into it and it was gone less than an hour later when I checked the bowl. They seem to know when it is in the mix or not. My two granny cats get more active after eating the food with the clay. I have 4 house cats that all dine out of the same bowl. - Karen S.

Woodchuck with Broken Ankle
While trying to rescue a baby woodchuck from being run over by a car I inadvertently broke it's ankle.  It was squealing in pain and the foot just hung and flopped around. It being Friday night the vet was closed till Monday so I made a soupy mixture of calcium Bentonite clay somewhere between liquid and hydrated so it would coat the leg thickly without me having to rub the clay on and maybe damage it more and then stuck the woodchuck's entire leg down into it. He stopped crying almost immediately so you could tell the clay eased the pain. Then I placed him in a small cage in a dim room so he could sleep.  I noticed he licked some of the clay off his foot at that time so got some internally.  

The next  3 days I dipped his leg and foot into the clay mixture once in the morning and again in the evening and kept him in the small cage with food near enough that he didn't have to walk to get it.   I did not wrap the leg or set it in any way as I wasn't sure how to do it and didn't want to set it crookedly.   Day 5 had him up and walking around and unhappy with his small quarters.  As you can see from the 2 pictures following, 1 with him standing and the other with him climbing, both feet and legs are as good as new and he's almost ready to be released back into the wild.  Note: He likes the clay so much that I have to put a small amount of the hydrated on some of his food now or he tries eating dirt outside. - Mary Lee S.

Our Blessed Clay Just Saved My Dog
Ping was bitten by a brown recluse Oct. 6. Here is a 13 day progression of our experience with it. Hopefully Ping's experience can help other pups. (This testimonial can be seen here, complete with pictures of the healing progression.)

Dog Detoxified from Paralyzing Plant Poison
My bother’s dog was having this terrible problem with his back legs and could hardly get up and when he did his back legs were practically paralyzed. After going to the vet and taking antibiotics and then off to a special vet hospital, they did more blood tests and he had gotten a condition which was from coming in contact with a certain plant which was paralyzing his hind legs. My husband told my brother about this living clay he had and that we should try it in his dog food. Well, after a few days, he was starting to walk a little better and after and few weeks the dog was totally fine. What a miracle. The poison from the plant had left his body! Thank you again for Living Clay! - Carol N.

Old Dog Can’t Get Around
My brother tries every home remedy and then sends me some.  He was raving about this clay and taking it internally.  I thought, “No way am I going to drink dirt!”  So I decided to try it on our 13 year old dog, Max, who can no longer get up the stairs or jump on furniture.  I mixed a teaspoon of the hydrated clay in his food for 3 days. The third day I came downstairs and couldn’t find him any where.  I thought, OH MY GOSH, I have killed our dog with that stupid clay and he has gone off somewhere to die.  A short time later I was carrying the laundry upstairs and I heard this ’thump, thump, thump’, coming from my daughter’s room.  I opened the door and there was Max on the bed and thumping his tail in delight.   I called my sister and told her to start taking the clay too that this time Bob was right about his natural remedy.  Now they whole family, critters and all take Living Clay. - Martha W.

Dog with Lupus
My dog was diagnosed with LUPUS several months ago (Sept. 2009) and given no hope for recovery by vet.  Her tests were done through biopsy at the Vet. School here in Colorado. As soon as drugs were introduced into her treatment, which I fell prey to and knowing better being holistically oriented too, the dog was out of control 24x7 and was in a crazy spaced out zone on these toxic chemicals.  I can't believe I fell to the lies of the vet after I even told him I didn't do drugs.  I did however take the dog off the drugs on my own seeing her like a zombie and no signs of improvement after a short time she used it.  However the effects of these powerful drugs lasted in her system for months.

I did apply clay to her itchy irritated skin and got some help. The greatest contribution that clay is still showing me is that if the dog has a cut on her paw or she bites it she is uncomfortable walking.  I reach for my prepared stash that I made up, smear it on the area and overnight all better.  I would never travel with the dog without the clay for her paw as it has done so much for her paws and also in some areas of her skin big improvements in short time. 

Thanks for continued support about clay as I never heard or used it before, but now for the dog's paws it's a great investment that holds up and lasts a long time.

I appreciate your sharing clay with me so that Molly can continue walking even if she gets a little crazy with her chewing on her paws. - Carol G.

Dog with Groomer Razor Burn
My dog came back from the groomer with razor burn that she kept scratching till it made a sore, I placed a thin layer of clay on it several times throughout the day and it relieved her discomfort and scratching and it healed nicely. In the past, these have turned into hot spots needing vet treatment. Nice to avoid that cost! - Justine F.

Rescue Pups with Parvo
I had taken in 3 rescue puppies from a littler of 6.  The other three went to another lady.  All the puppies got Parvo.  I treated mine with the recommended daily injection of Baytril from the veterinarian for 5 days plus I gave my pups 1 tablespoon of the premixed Liquid Living Clay three times a day by mouth.  My pups lived and the rest of the litter that were only treated with Baytril died.  The clay helped stop the diarrhea and the vomiting. - Cheryl P.

Herbicide Poisoning
Wiley was diagnosed with plant poisoning by a communicator - vet was useless. The AC told me to give him a tsp. of medicinal clay via syringe every 15 minutes for an hour. He weighs 30#. I didn't pin her down on which clay. I use Living Clay and already had some 1:3 hydration made. I added extra water to that because he was drinking very little water and dehydration was a concern. I think the syringe is 3cc size. It was suggested that I also give him parsley tea to aid in detoxing his organs. I didn't quite follow these instructions.

Since Wiley was not pooping, I was concerned about blockage. I cut the clay to 2 doses am and pm. Instead of parsley tea, I made a thick tea of parsley and slippery elm bark. He got a 12cc syringe of that am and pm. STILL no poop and no food, so everything I was putting in him was staying there. I think the slippery elm sustained him nutritionally during what turned into a 9-10 day fast.

I did not expect Wiley to live. Two weeks later, he's 90% improved and is definitely out of the woods. I'm continuing the clay and the slippery elm/parsley 'tea'.

Wiley (dog) got sick first, then kitten Ziva, then cat Bertie, then a chicken. I lost Bertie and the chicken, probably because I didn't know they were sick. There was no delay treating Ziva. The first time she missed a meal, I started syringing her. She was fully recovered in 2 days. With Wiley, it was probably 2 days before I started treatment. It isn't at all unusual for a farm dog to skip a meal since they find 'goodies' to eat - aka carrion. Wiley was started on the clay the second day, so there wasn't much of a lag, but he had gone downhill very fast. Ordinarily with something that serious I would have had him to a vet and prayed for an accurate diagnosis - which almost never happens. I can always reach my communicator on a weekend and also a woman who owns an animal sanctuary. The AC said plant poisoning, use clay; the rescue woman sent specific directions about using clay. Neither of them knew that I had it or that I knew anything about it. I've tried to get both of them to join About Clay but neither of them has the time.

I had no idea whatsoever what I was treating until it was all over. I still don't know for sure and I didn't connect the dots about plant poisoning and herbicide. Duh! My husband had sprayed some poison ivy without my knowledge.

It is Extremely important to me that I be able to treat 'whatever' immediately without a diagnosis - and do no harm. I am thrilled to have found clay to add to my arsenal. - Paula

Pup Now Thriving
My German Shepard pup seems to have a problem where his large bowel will not reabsorb water.  As a result, his “poop” was constantly runny. It was so bad when he was young that he was hospitalized twice and he wasn’t gaining any weight.   When my vet told me that the basic ingredient in the older versions of anti-diarrheal medicines was clay, I went to the local Indian health food store and bought a jar of calcium bentonite clay.  My pup is now 8 months old and we give him 1 teaspoon with each meal (hydrated, of course).  It has made him a much happier, healthier boy and he has finally begun to gain weight and look like the gorgeous Sheppie he is supposed to be. - Deb K.

Multiple Improvements
Yes, the Living Clay is safe for puppies and effective... We have given Sassy daily clay (mix liquid in with her food) for almost 2 years now... yearly checkups - all ok.... although she is 8 now; she is very healthy, active and since clay I have noticed: increased energy... no limp during cold weather and/or after laying around too long... no more urinary tract problems or kidney stones problems; she had surgery (pre-clay) and they said it could come back... it hasn't... also noticed her teeth cleaner and breath better.... hair thicker.... Also I have friend with young puppy rescued from vet; very thin, bony, hip and leg operation.... Giving daily clay and amazing results in overall appearance and attitude.... gets around real good also. - Paul M.

Good Teeth Report on 13 y. old Pomeranian
I have a little 13 year old Pomeranian. They have notoriously bad teeth. Last year my vet said that we may have to think about having her teeth scaled/scraped this year. But that is a surgical procedure, which would be hard on an elderly dog. So I started giving her liquid clay with her dry food twice a day. I just pour some next to the food, same plate. She goes for the clay first, then the food! Anyway, we went back to vet this year and he was shocked to see how good her teeth looked! She acts like a puppy and is really healthy! - Marilyn A.

Chloe’s Enlarged Liver
I wanted to tell you about a success story I've had with my sweet friend Chloe (a dog). She was developing an enlarged liver and her liver enzymes were elevated. In the mornings, she would hunch over and move stiffly and her belly was always hard. I researched and changed foods, but she received only minor relief from this. I began giving her the hydrated clay through a syringe every night. After three days, her painful movements decreased and she was more playful. Now her belly is soft and we can palpate without her crying out in pain. One of the most interesting things is that every night before I go to bed I get my clay ready and she comes and waits by me licking her lips. Now I just I dip in and give her a spoonful which she willingly licks off every bit...I think she knows it makes her feel better and she looks forward to having it. I'm so glad that the clay is helping her!  - Justine  F.

58 lb. German Shepherd Rescue Dog Rescued with Clay
I wanted to give you an update on my rescue dog, Kylie, since she has been using the clay.  As I mentioned before; she had been abused and was scared of everything when we first got her.  She was a very tall German Shepherd who only weighed 58 lbs. I hand coddled her trying to get weight on her but she had serious stomach issues.  She was throwing up yellow bile in the mornings and would go into extreme dysentery.  We got her up to about 69 pounds, which was not nearly enough weight for her size.  We were at the Vet very often and she was on antibiotics for 3 months at a time, on several occasions.  She got a yeast infection on the top of her paws a couple of times and they were red and swollen and the hair was coming off.  I had her on antifungal medication the last time for over a month and it was not working.  Our Vet bill has been over $2000 trying to remedy her problems

The man I buy the organic dog good from told his wife about it, as she is really into natural healing products and she was so kind to come with him to see what her problem was.  She brought me a sample of the Bentonite Calcium Clay and I applied it to her feet and within a few days there was a great improvement and within 2 weeks it was completely healed.  I started giving her the clay internally, I got a large size syringe from the drug store that would hold 15cc or 3 tablespoons at t time and started giving it to her morning and night.  Within a few day the throwing up had stopped.  Within the last 6 weeks she has had 2 more dysentery attacks but we were able to get it under control with the clay and the acidophilus.  She is now digesting her food and I took her over to the Vets office and weighed her yesterday and she was 77.2.  I am going to wait a couple of weeks to make sure the dysentery problem is over and I am going to make an appointment to go in and talk to the Vet about the Clay. - Juniece S.

Bee Sting Remedy
I've used 
Detox Clay Powder mixed with a little water to create a paste on my dog's tummy when she got a bee sting, and it made her feel a lot better due to decreasing the swelling and drawing out the toxins .Thank you for your help. - Melissa M.

Pet Testimonial on  Itchy Skin
I give my dog and my cats a bath then after rinsing well, they soak in the outside tub that has calcium Bentonite clay, I mix 1 cup per 25 gallons of warm water and then dry them off, do not rinse after the clay bath! They do not scratch and it gets rid of fungus infections that they get from bug bites. - MM

Dogs Prefer Drinking Clay Water
I'd asked earlier about giving clay to my 3 dogs in their water. At first, they didn't want to drink it. They changed their minds. I just found the water crock empty and all of the clay gone that had settled to the bottom. Yippee! They have many water sources so they never had to drink the clay water, much less eat the clay. - Paula

***Do not use clay in metal bowls.  Notice she uses Crock bowls.

Lumps, Bumps, Limping and Feet Licking
I have used Clay to help rid my 2 ole giant girls (Schnauzers) of large bumps on their bodies. I also mix clay with colloidal silver too! The bumps are almost gone! Great stuff! I also wanted to mention that Elli, the oldest, started limping so I applied living clay hydrated with colloidal silver wrapped her in glad wrap and after a few hours.  No limping she is off all pain meds as well. In addition, I also would like to say my 2 Schnauzers, Ellie & Twiggy, both lick their feet at times. I now do the clay & colloidal silver then mist it few times a day and no more licking. - Peaches (owned by 4 giant Schnauzer & 2 mini's all on living clay no more lumps or bumps! Yeah!)

Cutting into the Quick of Dog’s Toenail
Cutting into the Quick of Dog’s Toenail
I was trimming one of my dogs nails yesterday. NOT one of his favorite things. When trimming one of the back nails he pulled away suddenly and I ended up cutting the quick. He's a big dog there was a lot of bleeding. I was able to put some dry clay on it by hand, but he was till "fretting" and just licked it off and continued to bleed.
What I ended up doing was putting about an inch of clay in a small container and put his foot in it. I made him stand with his foot in the dry clay for about 5 minutes.  As soon as he had his foot in the clay he calmed down, the bleeding stopped and no longer was he obsessed with licking the area. - Debbie B,

Pet Wormer
My puppy was only been de-wormed once, before I got her.  I was suppose to de-worm her two more times but I decided to give her clay instead.  On our first visit to the vet her stool was checked for parasites, and guess what.....no parasites!  The doctor couldn't believe that she was only de-wormed once.  Hooray for the clay!!!!  I continue to mix clay in her food every morning.  Sometimes I give her a little extra when she sticks her nose in the duck poop! - Nancy F.

Puppy Parasite Free
I wanted to tell you that I got a new puppy and immediately started him on the clay twice a day. So he had been on four days of clay when I took him to the vet. He told me after checking his stool 'This is extremely rare!  I haven't seen this in a minimum 10 years . . . even puppies from breeders like yours. All puppies have parasites, but your puppy has none!  No parasites!'  As he shook his head in disbelief as he repeated it!  I told him I know why!  I give him clay! I give him the liquid clay: 10 parts water to 1 part clay. I have been giving him 1/4 tsp in his food. I put a little food in a bowl add 1/4 tsp liquid clay and 1/4 tsp amino acids, a little warm water and mix to make gravy. He laps it up. I give this twice a day. I also do this for my older dog. When I started giving it to the older dog I noticed she became more energetic and happy. The vet also commented on her. He asked how old she is, and I told him nine years old. He was amazed. He said she acts like a puppy. I attribute it to the combination of the clay and amino acids. However, for a while I was out of the amino acids and continued the clay. She continued to be friskier, and her coat fuller and beautiful. She weighs 11 lbs., and I give her 1/2 teaspoon twice a day. - Dorie

Clay Eliminated need for Rx Worming Meds for Critters
Just wanted to input what I’ve been doing for my critters. One week out of each month, I give my dog and my kitties Clay Water to drink. First of all I mix the 3 to 1 hydrated clay, and then I add about 2 tablespoons of that to their water bowl -- which is an old "mixing bowl" from my kitchen. They all love it and chug it right down. The clay drinking water probably wouldn't help with the skin rashes and issues as quickly as applying the clay topically -- but it sure helps their "innards". And it totally eliminates the need for Rx worming meds. I also want to start giving it to my HORSES. I have not done that yet. But the horses would truly benefit from the clay too, and I would not have to worm them with the worming meds. And I know the minerals in the clay would help them. - Jan D.

Dogs in Chemically Treated Yard
Last year after getting some work done in the yard I had to treat the lawn with a chemical pesticide which is something I usually never do. Having to go to an appointment I told my husband not to let the dogs out. Forgetting, he let them outside anyway. About four hours later I returned and saw them and learned they'd gone out almost immediately after I left and in a panic I wrote the aboutclay forum for advice. Perry said to put them in clay water and leave it on them for 20 minutes before rinsing it off and to give them clay water by mouth. I put a cup of dry clay in the laundry tub of water and dipped each dog into it and left it on them for the 20 minutes before rinsing it off and drying them. Each dog also got 6ccs of liquid clay per 10 - 12 pounds of body weight. Not a one of the 12 dogs got even slightly sick and they not only walked, sat and laid on the newly treated grass but playing and wrestling they rolled in it. I'm so grateful I had the clay and the forum where I could get advice. - Mary Lee S.

Doggie Clay Bath Tub
My back simply cannot withstand leaning over a bathtub to soak one, much less two dogs. I bought a large storage box with a lid on it. I mixed the clay water in the storage box and I just leave it in there - outside. I'm not dealing with a poison issue, just itching and likely detox. My mini-spa (storage box) is on a deck. I can stand the dogs in it and hopefully make them 'sit'. I continually stir up the clay from the bottom and douse the bottom 2/3 of their bodies with it. If I don't get their heads and shoulders wet, they'll cooperate. I use a small cup to gradually wet them moving upward. If I need to spot treat, I'm still not getting their heads/shoulders wet. This is NOTHING like getting a bath. I tell them what it would cost for them to go to a spa, etc. - blah, blah. Positive thinking! After getting them to sit in the clay-water as long as possible, I just set them in the yard - no rinsing, no toweling. They can run around, roll in the grass, whatever they want. I just brush or towel them off once they are dry - if necessary. Meanwhile, I assume the clay is doing its thing on their skin. I haven't had any skin dryness problems. Hair conditioner is a dirt magnet. I no longer use it and I don't want it put on my dogs. For squeeky clean hair, pet or human, use a vinegar rinse. It will remove any residue on your hair - soap, conditioner, or clay. - Paula

Pit Bull Allergic to Radiation
My female pitbull cannot tolerate the radiation from x-rays. (She's probably overloaded from the lovely mile-high tower down the road.) She tore her acl last month and the acupuncturist required x-rays before treatment. Immediately after returning home, Lizzy started puking. Everything she ate. For days. All of it. (gross) The injury happened 2 days prior to the x-rays, so I knew it wasn't injury-related. She had experienced excessive puking for many months at a time after previous x-rays. Knowing that living clay will absorb radiation, I put 1tsp of hydrated clay in some wet food. The puking stopped immediately and I saw noticeable improvement in her mobility, very shortly after the clay. Once she was holding food down, I went to every other day, so I could mix Chinese herbs recommended by her vet into her meals. Soon after the first dose of herbs, I detected an unpleasant aroma coming from her general direction. After a few hours of being slowly but steadily poisoned, I realized she was probably experiencing die off. I mixed some clay in the sauce from a can of food. Shortly thereafter, the stink went away. :-) She continued to reek after each dose of herbs, so I'm now mixing the clay and the herbs together, along with a little digestive enzymes. No more stink. Okay, not the great cancer-cure story. But kind of interesting. - Darla

Horse with Ostrich Egg Sized Bladder Stone (from Perry A~)
Luke had an ostrich-egg size stone in his bladder that was interfering with his ability to urinate. She and I discussed trying the clay. Sharon used common sense treatment. Her first report was: The clay seems to be working.  Luke, the horse is no longer "leaking" constantly, seems to be more comfortable, is back working and actually tried to urinate on his own instead of letting urine just dribble out. This is extremely positive as it means there may be no bladder damages and he still remembers what to do!! We are excited.  He will be going in for an ultrasound in a couple weeks to see how much the ostrich egg sized stone in his bladder has shrunk.  If it has shrunk enough for ultrasound treatments to totally destroy it, that would be great and if not, as long as there is a visible shrinkage, we know we are on the right track. Perry, it was fated we meet, even if all I get to do is help out this one horse. Thanking you again, Sharon M.

Follow up with Sharon and report on Luke: The horse now belongs in our school horse program.  Have not had a recent ultrasound of the lump in his bladder, but on the last one, it had decreased from 4 inches in diameter to 3 inches.  I believe the lump to slowly be decreasing in size.  The horse is much happier and can be used again as he is no longer in chronic pain.  I think he has a long way to go still, however, he's been saved from surgery so far and does not look like he will have to be put down.

Final report on Luke: With the latest ultrasound, the vet was unable to find any stone. Another success for Living Clay.

Here is the protocol; that Sharon used:  I gave him a wet meal, like soaked beet pulp, added the dry powder to it and mixed it in.  Started off with a cup a day and when we saw signs from the ultra-sound that the stone was shrinking, dropped it to a 1/2 cup per day and now that it is gone, down to a 1/4 cup as horses that get these stones are at a danger of re-occurrence.  Will likely, in about 6 months, drop him down to 1/4 cup every second day. Took about 5 months before the stone shrunk from 4 inches to 3 inches and then another 5 months until it was gone.  Granted, we were not doing an ultrasound every month, so it may have been sooner once the stone started dissolving than 5 months. Given the size of the stone, I was quite surprised that it was completely gone in just under a year.

Sick Horse
My story starts in April with my daughter's show horse Dolly.  She wasn't performing as she could.  We had the vet to check her, he ran some test and said she had a disease that would affect her for quite some time.  We were very distressed, since my daughter had high hopes of going to the Palomino World Show in July to compete.  She had been working hard nearly everyday.  We had to let Dolly rest for almost a month, in this time we prayed over her and gave her the Living Clay in her feed everyday.  We had the vet check her in a month and he said we had a sound horse, so Haley went back to riding Dolly and we went to the Palomino World which Haley and Dolly won 3 World Championships and 2 Reserve World Championships.  They also won the prestigious award of Golden Horse 13 and under.  We still feed her the Living Clay everyday in her feed.  Thanks for telling us about this miracle clay. - Rebecca H.

Mustang with Respiratory and Discharge Complications
In October-07 we applied Clay lotion to the chest and shoulders of one of our large mustangs. Gentle Ben was presenting with respiratory complications and major discharge. I applied one-half tube of Living Clay Body Lotion. Within five minutes the toxic heat was gone and his jolly demeanor returned.  By next afternoon, the discharge was gone. - Daniel D.

Ferret with Enlarged Pancreas
I have a ferret who has had an enlarged pancreas. The vet said this sometimes happens to older ferrets and they become hyperglycemic. Well, I've been giving Rosie (my girl ferret) a half teaspoon of clay mixed in with her baby food and kitten replacement milk daily for the last month and would like to report her pancreas has gone from a hard knot on her belly the size of a silver dollar to the size of a penny! She acts more alert and has more energy. This is great news to me. I swear by this stuff these days! - Linda C.

I am doing a Living Clay facial once in a while.  And once in a while I do a LC soak bath. I am very loyal about drinking it twice a day and taking plenty of water as my only beverage other than Darjeeling and various green teas. When I began drinking LC at the end of January 2005   Perry  A had insisted that plenty of water be drank along with the clay. This I did.  I don't sleep all night so had a cafe of water handy and each and every time I woke up I drank water.  I am not that loyal to doing it lately since I sleep more soundly and wake up fewer times. Consequently have not been dropping as fast the additional weight.  So there is a clue here. Drink plenty of water.

By Easter at the end of March I realized I was not eating the foil covered eggs I had purchased for my husband.:) The LC has just honed down my binges and moderates my desire to eat and over eat. I am satisfied with better food and much smaller portions.  The candy section and the bakery section hold NO temptation for me now. I do not feel like I have to be putting drink or food into my system all the time as I did before drinking the clay. Water being the only exception. I always have a bottle of water at the ready. My shape change came about without effort.  I did not exercise, I do feel now like I could. I have fibromyalgia and related health problems exercising was not for me.  At first my shape change was subtle.  I noticed my cloths getting comfortable, that was a surprise since my washer and dryer (Maytag) has always shrunk my clothes. Then they just didn't stay on my hips.  My arms and shoulders no longer fit the shirts and blouses and the shoulder pads I once tossed out would be needed to continue to wear them.  My guess is that I am not being controlled by the parasites who had been supported by the chemicals and other trash in what I had been consuming. The LC did its job and cleaned them out. 

The only other changes I made after hearing Perry for the first time was getting a mercury filling taken out and dropping all medications.  Both had long been on my mind to do and Perry had just given me the vehicle to carry away the residue/toxins that my "habits" or poor judgment had left behind.  Those changes could not have been so very successful if Perry A  (in a long phone conversation) had not assured me of the amazing results this clay and only this clay can bring about.  The truth at last, LC clay is effective and harmless at the same time.  Will I never stop drinking LC twice a day? After going from 3x and 2x to size 14 (for now ) I will always drink LC. - Linda R.

Weight Loss without Dieting
I had suffered from so many different things from high blood pressure to high blood sugar to obesity and lupus-like symptoms. I was always tired and felt like I was dying. Chronic pains in my feet and joints, headaches and I caught every cold and flu it seemed. I also had rough skin on my feet and lived with yeast infections monthly. I had hot flashes and would feel dizzy and had ear ringing. Not to mention acne at 42. I couldn't sleep well and I had sleep apnea. I also had constant gas. Plus I was obese. I started off by not drinking or cooking with fluoridated water as I found out how deadly it really is. It took a lot of symptoms away. The gout, the pain in the joints, and I slept a little better and my blood pressure went down some. Then I came across your page about clay. I bought some powdered clay and I drank it in 16 oz. water on empty stomach once a day. The first dose I have to admit cleaned out my intestines so well green plaque came out. Yuk. I was shocked that was in me. I had no idea it could work so well so fast. Within about an hour I started feeling like I did when I was younger. Later that day I noticed my eye whites were so white and I never seen it that way ever. Unless I used eye drops. Well I started taking Epsom salt, clay half cup each and one tablespoon baking soda baths. I would soak for half an hour three times a week. My rough skin cleared up and after a month I noticed I no longer slept fitfully and I stayed asleep with no more snoring. My blood pressure is now normal. I am overweight but not obese now. Borderline. The weight fell off of me so fast my skin from my stomach touches my thighs. However I didn't diet or restrict my food intake. I no longer suffer from gas unless I eat beans and the acne is gone completely. No more hot flashes I still get colds but I use my clark zapper that I made myself and within twenty minutes my cold symptoms are gone. I took thirty drops of black walnut hull tincture once a day with 8 oz. water for one week then once a week after that and I no longer have high blood sugar. It is normal now. All the other symptoms disappeared other than occasional pains when it turns cold or rains. I also now use it on my scalp as I always had dandruff and sores on my scalp. No more. When I use the clay as a mask my skin gets so much tighter its like I lost years off my face immediately. It stays tight and smooth and I don't see the little crows feet anymore at all. I continue on the baths three days a week and the internal daily. - Lisa

Weight Loss and More
Calcium Bentonite Clay has been an awesome tool for this physical body.  It took me 3 months to get off Prilosec for acid reflux by "swigging" 8/1 clay whenever (10+/day) I felt acid forming.  I know clay has balanced my pH because I don't get infections any more.  Taking clay for 1 year, a big 'ol serving spoon full, at least 3 times /day has helped me improve my health as well as shed 50 lbs. Random clay poultices held in place with Glad Press 'n' Seal suck all the toxic lymph fluid out of the tissues, take away the "needles stabbing my body" feeling and leave the skin smooth and soft.  One day I looked in the mirror and sighted a "waddle" under my chin.  Happy to say clay poultices have reduced that area because the fluid weighing down the area is gone. Clay is my toothpaste, and gum healer when I pack dry clay at night (around teeth).  Swollen joints, sore muscles, cuts or sunburn - first response is CLAY.  I can testify to surprising results in all the above applications having used it myself. I passed along the clay info and results to friends who now swear by the Magic of the Clay.  - Jacq P.

Weight Loss
I made a couple of lifestyle changes to lose the weight. Gave up soda (especially caffeinated) because they trigger cravings and stopped eating minimum 2hr better 3 hrs. before bed, but I was drinking 2oz. liquid clay 3x a day (on an empty stomach). I still allowed myself to eat whatever I wanted. The difference is I wasn’t wanting as much. I do believe the clay gives you the edge. I was mixing the dry clay powder with 10oz. of water- 1oz clay to 10oz.H20. I was putting it in a plastic water bottle and shaking it really good. Actually, I read that Perry recommends 1oz. clay to 8oz. H20. When I get up I drink 2oz clay water and 8oz. H20 chaser. I was doing that in the afternoon before lunch and at night before bed. Try waiting at least 1-2 hrs. before eating anything. (Except at night, I don't eat before going to bed.) I haven't tried eating the clay pudding. But, I wouldn't object to it either. Weight loss is easy sometimes it is maintaining that is sooooo hard. But, I am 50++++++ and decided this year I was going to get on the stick and get in better health as well as lose weight. The 18lbs I lost initially is still off and this time I believe I have the secret for keeping it off.  Good luck on your clay journey as well. - Joann F.

Brags on Wife's Weight Loss and New Energy
Over a year ago, my wife got fed up with main stream medicine continuously feeding her drugs, drugs, and more drugs in what was an attempt to control (not CURE) her Fibromyalgia.  After hearing about clay on a radio show in January 2005 she decided to take charge of her own life by giving up ALL her meds over night (cold turkey) and turn to the living clay.  Knowing how things work (or don't work) when it comes to the FDA, they could only say it might help.  What an understatement...!!!  Today, she has lost almost 60 pounds (without exercising) and for the past month or so has been mowing our lawn (as well as my mothers) and is basically a new person.  I am not saying she is cured but the truth is, I haven't seen her this physical in 15 plus years...she even went out and bought a bicycle to ride...I got my wife back!!!  - Dan R.

Lost Weight and Sugar Craving with Clay and Good Eating
I have noticed from me taking the clay, that I no longer crave, sugar - plus I have lost 7 pounds, in such a short period of time.  I started the clay on March 5th... and lost the 7 lbs by the 15th.  I have never lost that much weight in that short of a time... I am so happy about that... I am hypothyroid....  I did sprinkle a bit on clay on my tooth brush with my organic tooth paste.. I loved the feeling on my teeth, afterwards.

I am taking two oz of clay 2x a day...I will be going down to 2 oz of clay a day on the 19th.  I only drink 4 oz of water with the clay so it stays with me... I am not eating any white flour, or dairy,  I am eating fruit for breakfast, 2 days in a row then eat 2 hard boiled eggs the 3rd day, then back to fruit again..on my fruit day I do take my banana with 8 oz of unsweetened almond chocolate nut milk with a handful of ice and blend... nice smoothie... makes me feel like I am not so restricted.. Lunch - I do 4 oz of protein, chicken, fish, or bison, beef with 2 raw veggies or mix it up with a salad with the raw veggies, or cook the veggies..  my snack is a fruit or some veggies...nuts, or a protein bar with no more than 8 grams of sugar.  Dinner 4 oz of grilled protein, not the same that I had for lunch... salmon or tilapia, chicken... I only eat beef once a week - I try to eat it for lunch... I do have homemade popcorn once a week on Sundays..  I try to walk every day, and I'm not talking 3 miles... just long enough to get 30 minutes in... I dance to my music and lift my 6lb medicine ball.  I also have a gazelle... I like to dance.... and ride bike the most.  Keep a journal... Drink lots of water or green tea... I do not drink pop or coffee at all. If I want to give my water a nice flavor I will put 3 oz of organic juice in it... every once in a while.. not daily... I also drink hot water with a twist of a lemon... Sunday, I did want a dessert with my meal so I took a small cookie like dessert that was 1x1 inch... just to have the dessert... I did not feel I really wanted any more then that... I was a  sweet eater person, before the clay, so this is huge for me.  I eventually want to be sugar free... Once I reach my goal weight I will add some whole wheat pasta in, with my bread... multi grain...organic cereal. 

I never eat white bread, nor buns - anything that says enriched flour I do not eat.  I do not eat any high fructose corn syrup, or hydrogenated vegetable oil either.. I don't eat anything with MSG in it ... I do not ever eat any lunch meat unless it is Dilusso deli meat with no added junk..I stay away from sodium nitrate... I eat most organic foods.  I do not do dairy because I am allergic too dairy.  I sub that with rice dream original or almond breeze nut milk... these are both non dairy... and are kept on the shelve... you do refrigerator after you open them of course... it truly is all about the calories in.. and the activities... read.... read... labels... know what you are putting into your holy temple.... it is a lot of work to stay healthy... - Diane W.

Clay Fast
I went on a clay fast for 3 days, I took 3 oz. of liquid clay 3x's a day, and LOTS of water. I lost 8 lbs and I had a ton of energy. Didn't have any detox symptoms because I had been drinking clay for over 6 mos. I liked it, felt great! - Susan M.
