The author of the "The Art of Pelotherapy and Healing with Clay
Using Clay Water and Clay Magma Internally" page, disclosed that they like to use french green illite, but only "on occasion, and only a very, very small amount." Could anyone tell me why this is, why you would not want to use this clay in bulk?

Thank you!

Greetings, guest:

In tradition French naturopathy, clay is not used as a primary detoxificant, but only a supporting one. Due to the particle sizing, this particular clay type (illite) works differently in-body than its smectite counter part. More clay enters the body's active metabolism than, say, bentonite would.

Furthermore, you only need about a tsp in order to get the desired effect

You have to switch to American Naturopathy, where bentonite is the primary clay particle used, to see clay used as the primary detoxificant.

Typical bentonites/smectites have very few particles sized small enough to enter into the body's active metabolism. You can use more of this type of mineral to actually change the terrain of the digestive system, so this clay has actually traditionally been used as a stand alone treatment system for many different digestive system ailments.

Research done in North America even determines (via animal studies) how much clay that a body can tolerate before it starts to interfere with nutrient uptake. It's quite a lot.

So we see different philosophies at work, and definitely different evolutions of healing systems at play, as well as different types of crystalline particles used.

For more information, feel free to read my book which covers quite a few different types of specific clay.

...oh, and I should also state that French naturopathy TENDS to lean towards homeopathy these days, as well.

...while the American naturopaths, who developed the bodies of work still used today, believed in creating dramatic shifts in the human body to combat very severe chronic illness most often caused by lifestyle issues!
