[from Valerie S.]

So many voices about french green clay for medicinal purposes, internal and external... Some say it is good and others say use it only for facials. I was told only Terramin montmorillonite is best for internal use. Then, I see that another websites says the opposite.

Could you please help me resolve this?

Thank you so much,

Valerie

Hi Valerie:

Here's the problem: If you go to a website that sells a particular type of clay, the sellers are going to try to hype up this clay as much as possible, often at the expense of other fine clays. Sites that hype up a single clay usually-- if not always-- really don't know what they are talking about. The issue is lack of experience and lack of desire to explore the truth.

There are a handful of clay deposits that are exceptionally well suited for healing applications, and then there are quite a few mediocre clays out there.

Concerning the very high quality clay deposits that are well known (and well deserved) as being actually healing grade clays: All of them have great uses, and most of them are very safe and effective for internal use.

Each of these clays have different strengths, and in fact different people respond uniquely to different clays. Some clays have more profound systemic effects (like French Green Illite), but are a bit weaker at digestive system healing (compared to volcanic orgin healing clays like the green desert clay we use). Some are very gentle on the system (like small amounts of USP grade sodium bentonite), while others have strong anti-microbial activity and an ability to "bust" biofilm. Some clays are extremely "clean as sourced" while others are weathered and more diverse with mineral types and particle structure (like Terramin).

The good news is that you don't have to drive yourself crazy by trying to listen to a million different voices with a million different opinions. You just have to listen carefully to how YOUR body responds.

When in doubt, you can always look at the clays we carry at greenclays.com, read the book "Upon a Clay Tablet", or ask this forum for a nuetral and honest perspective on clay.

As far as your question, french green illite clay is one of the easiest and safest to use internally; it has a very rich history as a healing clay, as well as a very mild earthy taste that is well tolerated. There are different grades of this clay available. I like both the granulated clay (very natural) as well as the ultra-ventilated fine powder (far less grain).

With this type of clay, do not exceed 1 tsp doses, and there is never a reason to use this clay more than twice daily. If you have digestive system issues requiring much more clay to stabilize and detox the digestive tract, the best idea is to choose a volcanic-origin clay (smectite). While you are at it, this clay makes a great facial and skin cleansing agent!

I hope this helps a bit!
