Bentonite Clay - A Natural Way to Protect Yourself from Mercury
by Cheryl McCoy
is a naturally occurring metal that is toxic to vertebrates,
including humans. Even in very small amounts, it can cause
severe damage to your neurological functions and multiple organ
systems. Mercury is "hiding" in many things we come in
contact with daily; everything from our food to the fillings in
our teeth, and even our light bulbs. It seems to be
everywhere. It was recently reported that HFCS (high
fructose corn syrup) has been contaminated with mercury.
Since such a vast number of processed foods contain HFCS, any
time you eat any pre-packaged food, you're most likely eating
mercury right along with it. But mercury isn't just in
junk food. Even healthy foods can be hiding mercury.
Unfortunately, it is reported to be abundant in fish, one of the
foods considered to be most healthy for us to consume.
Calcium Bentonite Clay, thankfully, is a safe, natural way to
help remove mercury from our bodies and protect ourselves from
the ravages of this contaminant.
Bentonite Clay can be used both
internally and externally to cleanse and detoxify the body.
Calcium Bentonite Clay has a very strong negative ionic charge.
When it comes in contact with any substance that has a positive
ionic charge (such as metals, toxins, bacteria, etc.) it
attracts it like a magnet, and the two become bound together.
The clay both adsorbs the positive-charged ion (attaches it to
its surface like VELCRO®), and absorbs it as well. As the
clay passes through your system, it attracts and binds the
metals and toxins, which are then eliminated from the body along
with the clay.
with taking clay internally, external applications are also very
effective and helpful in removing mercury. Clay baths are
often used as a part of successful chelation therapy.
Calcium Bentonite Clay has a uniquely strong ability to pull
toxins and metals out through the pores of the skin, binding to
them and removing them from the body. And unlike many
other chelation methods, clay is natural, safe and much gentler
to the system.
To help rid
your body of mercury, the best approach is the double fisted,
internal/external approach. Take the Calcium Bentonite
Clay internally (approximately 2 ounces of liquid clay once or
twice a day) and take clay baths twice a week (using
approximately 1-2 cups of dry powder clay per bath). Be
sure you're using a pure, natural Calcium Bentonite Clay that
has a pH of at least 9.0 for best results.
