[question posted by a guest]:


I've read a research paper by Lynda Williams at Arizona State University on the use of two french clays.

The research seem to conclude that one clay promoted bacteria growth especially in the e.coli species and another seemed to inhibit growth. Do you happen to know the sources of these two clays and which promoted or inhibited growth? For an edible clay I would guess this is of extreme importance as a potential method to treat SIBO and intestinal dysbiosis. We are a newly formed microbiome company specialising on quantifying the microbiome of the Asian population and creating therapeutic products via our research efforts. We would love to conduct some collaborative work on the effects of clays to determine pre and post clay treatments on the GI microbiome. Would you be interested in this? Have you heard of a clay called Kisameet clay? It has a unique bluish hue.

The study above also mentioned this "However, the present study revealed that the clay is not physically penetrating the bacterial cells". Our understanding of clays and practical applications is very minor and we had thought clays cause a physical penetration of bacterial cells. We also have heard that clays should be used independently of antibiotics and herbal products that also cause dramatic changes in the microbiome. I left a comment on your about us page with my contact email. It would be great to look at physical evidence of the changes in the microbiome based on the most effective clays which you have worked with.

Greetings,

While the research conducted by ASU is interesting, in my opinion it is a bit misplaced. The end goal of the research was not in the pursuit of scientific knowledge, it was funded by a grant in order to try to secure patents for phamacological applications. Most of these patent applications are being denied, one by one. As such, the study was very narrow and conducted in a manner that did not allow for the liberty to follow the observable data (research which allowed them to secure funding in the first place).

If you approach clay use by thinking it works by either supporting or killing microbes, you're missing the point of clay therapy all together.

Just to give you one example, please view the following information:

http://www.eytonsearth.org/buruli-ulcer.php

There are far more advanced ways to use and understand clay applications. For example, we can make a "killer clay" that will eliminate microbes, and we can make a "probiotic clay" rich with effective microorganisms. We can make clay with even more oxidative power, or we can turn the same clay into an antioxidant clay.

Traditional use medicinal clays work in many ways. A natural clay's effect on actual microorganisms directly is the least of the MOAs. Far more important is the effect as a catalyst, and using clay to make drastic positive changes in bioterrain.

In the realm of colloidal science, most clay particles are monsterously huge. They are far too large to actually enter cells.

Before undertaking further research, I suggest you read my book Upon a Clay Tablet (the research section). Dr. Lind, for example, already did the research work on natural clay's effect on bacterial counts in the digestive tract, back in the 1970's.
