Bentonite is not a mineral but a commercial name for montmorillonite, the active mineral in many medicinal clays which come from weathered volcanic ash. This name derives from Montmorillon, France, where the medicinal mineral was first identified. Sometimes mineralogists also use the termsmectite.
A VOLCANIC DETOXIFIER – Bentonite, a medicinal powdered clay is one of the most effective natural intestinal detoxifying agents available and has been recognized as such for centuries by nativepeoples around the world. Liquid clay contains minerals that, once inside the gastrointestinal tract,are able to absorb toxins and deliver mineral nutrients to an impressive degree. Liquid clay is inertwhich means it passes through the body undigested.
A medicinal study by Frederic Damrau, M.D., in 1961 (Medical Annals of the District of Columbia)
established clearly that bentonite can end bouts of diarrhoea. When 35 individuals (average age 51)
suffering from diarrhoea took two tablespoons of bentonite in distilled water daily, the diarrhoea
was relieved in 97% of the patients in 3.8 days, regardless of the original cause of the problem (allergies, virus infection, spastic colitis, or food poisoning). According to Dr. Damrau, bentonite is “safe and highly effective” in treating acute diarrhoea.
Technically, the clay first adsorbs toxins (heavy metals, free radicals, pesticides), attracting them to its extensive surface area where they adhere like flies to sticky paper; it then absorbs the toxins, taking them in the way a sponge mops up a kitchen counter mess.
Mix 1 tsp in a cup of hot water and let steep for 5 minutes. The grey water on top is what you want
and you add 1 to 5ml per 100ml milk formula depending on severity of diarrhoea.
