"Everything in Nature contains all the powers of Nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Calcium Bentonite Clay's spiritual healing properties are homeostasis, the ability to return to balance. The Native American Indians simplified it by saying, "Clay has the wisdom of its own. It knows where to go and what to do."
Bentonite clay is a nanocrystal. Crystals are proficient in memory and holding energy. Calcium Bentonite Clay speaks with the body and acts as a catalyst that supports the body. This support is through healing itself by cleansing, detoxing, stimulating circulation, and balancing body pH. It helps the body regain equilibrium and the normal flow of energy.
Bentonite clay is formed out of volcanic ash; it is the ash scattered on the Earth's surface after an eruption. The ash conditions and ages after encountering water, turning into bentonite clay. It is through this process that bentonite clay gets its velvety texture and mineral-rich properties. The origins of bentonite clay – both the Clay and its name were discovered from large deposits near a formation called Benton Shale, in Fort Benton, near Rock River in Wyoming.
The main compound of bentonite clay is a flat crystal called Montmorillonite. This crystal has a strong negative ionic charge, giving bentonite clay one of its magical properties. Bentonite clay draws positively charged particles of substances like arsenic or lead. This intense negative electromagnetic charge is activated when the Clay is mixed with water; this Clay is like a magnet pulling harmful, toxic metals and other combinations towards it. This action makes it a formidable cleanser, detoxifier, and purifier. Bentonite clay provides some essential minerals and repairs the body's pH levels. This Clay is very hygroscopic (meaning it tends to absorb moisture from the air). It can absorb 40 to 50 its weight when mixed with water, like how a sponge works. This makes it an excellent substance for pulling out and absorbing toxic substances.
The types of Bentonite clay are named for the primary elements found in their composition. Sodium bentonite, calcium bentonite, aluminum bentonite, and potassium bentonite each have unique benefits. The two most used types of bentonite clay are sodium and calcium bentonite. Each variant contains exchangeable ions of sodium or calcium.
Clay is volcanic ash - the burnt-out core of Mother Earth. Clay is a stable compound. All the elements that makeup Clay, 60 or more trace minerals in parts per million, are bound together and act together. These nano-silica crystal particles have a powerful electromagnetic negative ionic charge. This charge imparts energy that allows the clay molecule to draw positively charged ions such as certain bacteria, viruses, fungi, molds, yeast, heavy metals. Many of the healing properties of Clay cannot be explained by scientists. Many believe it is because of its intelligence and spirituality.
Remember never to use aluminum, steel, or copper containers or spoons, for mixing, applying, or consuming bentonite clay. Only use clean glass bowls or food-grade plastic containers and utensils.
