You aren’t going to believe this. I nearly didn’t myself! Had I not seen it with my own eyes.
My husband had a ganglion cyst. A hard lump on his wrist from an old injury. Out of no where it had started to grow. From something barely visible to, over the next few months, about the size of a small marble. And stayed like that for some time. Then it started to grow again! And I got worried. But after a couple of weeks it just stayed the same. About the size of a large marble. It didn’t get bigger, it didn’t get smaller. I… was still concerned. So I started researching this thing.
Remedies included everything from surgery to smashing it with a large book! Um… ouch. No thank you. And then there was Bentonite. I’ll be honest, I had heard of the stuff, but only briefly and knew little about it other than it’s proposed detoxifying effects. But what the hell. Let’s give it a go.
I approached my husband with this brown bottle of chalky white liquid and a tablespoon. Use to my antics and surprised more than a time or two by their effectiveness, he decided to go along. But that isn’t the crazy part. He took one dose. One. That evening. And when he came home the next day… the thing had shrunk by more than half!!! Serious! Barely visible. He took another dose that evening and one more the following morning and the damn thing was gone in two days! Two days. Three doses.
But that’s not all. He had been having some digestive issues (sorry babe). I’ll save you the details, but ….but…. those cleared up too!!! These issues had been plaguing him for years. Consistently. And then suddenly he was back to normal.
You see, Bentonite naturally detoxifies the body. It pulls harmful toxins out!
Bentonite is a mineral source, a clay, that traps and binds unwanted substances and promotes their excretion. It has been used for centuries by indigenous cultures and animals around the planet. Animals in the wild have been observed licking the clay as part of their diet and rolling in it to find relief from injuries.
According to the Canadian Journal of Microbiology, bentonite clay can reportedly absorb pathogenic viruses, as well as herbicides and pesticides.
So how does it work?
When Bentonite clay absorbs water it expands and opens like a sponge. Toxins are drawn in through electrical attraction and bind. The Bentonite is then eliminated from the body with these toxins bound to its surfaces.
Bentonite can be used as a detox, laxative and colon cleanse, to treat IBS, diarrhea, bloating and gas…. and ganglion cysts. I have read accounts of people saying that their allergies have been reduced and eliminated from its use. It even has claims to increased energy!
I have read claims from parents of children with Autism and Aspergers that they have seen positive developmental and behavioral results when using Bentonite clay!!!
Bentonite is also used in skin care products and treatments for eczema and acne. It has been said to positively treat wounds and sores like cold sores. It treats oily skin both internally and externally. It is even used for hair! As a deep conditioner, it removes build up without stripping it of moisture.
Although there have not been serious adverse effects, Bentonite should not be taken by pregnant women. It should also not be taken within a few hours of any prescribed medicines or supplements for it could cause them to be ineffective. Also, be sure you are using Calcium Bentonite. Sodium Bentonite should not be used internally.
Bentonite clay can be taken internally in liquid or capsule form. It is recommended to start with 1 tablespoon daily over the course of one week and can be increased to no more than 4 tablespoons a day. In my experience, 1-2 tablespoons daily is plenty. When taking 2 space them one in the morning and one at night. Best taken on an empty stomach with water or juice. This can be part of your regular colon cleansing regimen, allowing for better absorption of nutrients due to its intestinal cleansing and regulating effects. Remember, a healthy gut is a healthy you!
A lot of time has passed and the cyst has not returned. The digestive troubles have stayed mostly at bay. He is so in love with the stuff he takes it regularly. And he feels great. And I am taking it too!
