Why do we need to continually detox and internally cleanse our bodies? For the simple reason that every day, we are bombarded with toxins entering our bodies. We are exposed to pesticides, fertilizers, chemical cleaning products, medications, plastic toxins, and food additives daily. It’s virtually impossible to escape chemical and heavy metal contamination because it’s everywhere.
Do you occasionally consume processed foods? Do you use deodorant? Are you taking prescription drugs? Do you wrap certain foods in aluminum foil? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then you no doubt have some amount of aluminum heavy metal toxicity.
Heavy Metals and Your Health
Another common heavy metal that poses health risks is cadmium. Cadmium can be found in ceramics, automobile seat covers, used motor oil, floor coverings, fertilizers, fungicides, white flour, and soft drinks (fizzy drinks) in cans.
The dangerous effects of lead to our bodies is well known. It’s been linked to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, learning disabilities, seizure disorders, aggression, hyperactivity, and many other health issues. Again, it’s not easy to avoid lead as it is often found in canned food, colored, glossy newsprint, old lead pipes, seals on wine bottle tops, vehicle emissions, and even refined chocolate.
Additionally, Mercury, another heavy metal, is on the list of the five most toxic substances on our planet. It has been linked to heart arrhythmias, headaches, blurred vision, and general weakness. One of the worst culprits for mercury toxicity is the so-called “nickel fillings” in our teeth, which are, in reality, amalgam fillings containing mercury. Moreover, most farm-grown fish seem to be contaminated with mercury. The majority of vaccines, even for little children, contain thimerosal, which is a mercury-based preservative.
As you can see, we are literally living in a “toxic soup”! There is only so much a person can reasonably do to avoid these harmful toxins. Logically, as these harmful chemicals are continually entering our bodies, we need to remove them daily to stay in good health. Cleansing the body in this way is even more imperative for those battling a serious illness, such as cancer or any chronic disease.
Why do we get flu, colds, and headaches?
According to John Tilden, M.D., author of Toxemia (1974), he states that the fundamental cause of disease is insufficient drainage of waste matter, which causes toxins to accumulate in the blood above the toleration point. He asserts that disease – call it a cold, the flu, a headache – is the result of an accumulation of poisons in the system. Heavy metal toxicity has proven to be a significant threat, and there are several health risks associated with it.
How Does Bentonite Remove Toxins from the Body?
At the Budwig Center, we use natural clay to help remove serious chemical toxins and heavy metals from our cancer and chronically ill patients, called BENTONITE CLEANSE. Bentonite clay is an internal detoxification and cleansing agent. How Bentonite (montmorillonite) clay works, is that it essentially “seeks” toxins in the body to bind with. In nature, any substance that has a missing ion (the ion gives the substance its “charge”) looks for elements that have the opposite charge, to make it complete.
Once the bentonite clay binds with the toxic heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, lead) and chemicals, our body then automatically expels them via the colon and the kidneys along with the clay. It pulls away built-up refuse and even dangerous herbicides such as Paraquat and Roundup. This action alone can raise your energy level in as little as 1 to 3 days. Bentonite clay acts in 3 ways: it absorbs, it revitalizes, and it acts as a catalyst for the transformation of food into usable energy.
Bentonite Clay Helps with:
- Helps alleviate rashes, eczema, food allergies, food poisoning, colitis, viral infections, and parasites
- Hay Fever
- Destroys E. Coli and MRSA
- Increases energy levels
- Aids digestion issues – cleanses the liver, colon, and skin
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Effective weight loss remedy
- Stomach ulcers
- Increases alertness and clear-headedness
- Enhanced growth and tissue repair of gums and skin (can be used in natural toothpaste)
- Eczema and Psoriasis
- Diaper rash
- Auto-immune disorders and stimulates the immune system
- Pain reduction
- Increased wound healing
How To Know If You Need to Detox
- Low energy
- Struggling with weight gain
- Skin Breakouts
- Often sick with the flu, colds or headaches
- Foggy brain, impaired cognitive function
How To Use The Bentonite Healing Clay
The specific Bentonite Cleanse protocol for beginners, those with serious diseases, the weak or aged is as follows:
- Take two capsules with an 8 oz (250ml) glass of filtered water for three days
- After the third day, stop taking for four days.
- Start again and increase to 3 capsules daily for three days and then four days off.
This schedule should be continued to ensure that the body becomes acclimatized, and this may take as long as four weeks. Health practitioners suggest an intake of at least 8 – 10 glasses of fresh, pure water daily while taking the Bentonite to help detoxify the body. After four weeks, you can consume two capsules daily until the health problem is resolved.
Regular Detoxification instructions (for generally healthy people)Take four capsules a day of Bentonite Cleanse for 20 days to detoxify your system then give yourself a 10-day rest. If your health issues have not improved to the extent desired, do another 20 days, with a 10-day rest. You could repeat this schedule each month until your health issues are improved.
