What is Indian Healing Clay?

Indian Healing Clay also known as Bentonite clay is an ancient healing ingredient. Most of today’s current harvesting of bentonite clay is done in Fort Benton, Wyoming, where many volcanos can be found. 

Indian Healing Clay naturally contains calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron, and potassium. Ancient cultures used it as a dietary supplement since the clay is a natural source of important minerals.

In today’s world, we are exposed to a plethora of chemicals in the environment, air, food and water we are exposed to.  Bentonite Clay can be used as a natural detoxifying agent. Bentonite clay helps your body remove toxins and fight various bacteria, such as E. coli and staph infection.   When used as a clay mask, this compound can draw bacteria out of the skin and promote healing for various skin problems such as acne and contact dermatitis. It is also a proven treatment for poison ivy exposure. This clay makes a great detoxification bath ingredient. Simply add ¼ of a cup of clay to your bath and soak for 15 but no more than 30 minutes for a safe, natural detox.  Be sure to drink at least 8oz of water before and after your bath to prevent dehydration caused by the detox process.

Bentonite Clay can also be used as a natural solution for baby powder uses.  Traditional baby powder made from Talc is known to be an endocrine disrupter and is rumored to cause cancer in females.  Indian Healing Clay is a safe replacement for baby powder.

Fluoride is a controversial topic and some in the educated medical and holistic community believe it is a toxin. But fortunately, bentonite clay is a proven, natural way to cleanse your tap water from fluoride. Scientific studies have shown when bentonite clay was added to magnesium in tap water, it was able to detoxify and remove fluoride from drinking water.
