Information on how to drink clay for a newbie..
« on: July 08, 2020, 10:14:36 AM »
Hello Jason

GREETINGS FROM ENGLAND :)

I'm new to this forum and very new to clay in general!

I've been around the block quite a few times -  and I am really disappointed that I have only just come across how incredibly healing clay can be - I think it's criminal that so many people do not know about it and it is being lost in the annals of time..

THANK YOU VERY MUCH for making a very valiant effort to educate and make people aware of how wonderful this simple 'earth' can be..

My question is: we have been drinking the water from clay after it has been steeped overnight; I have read your introduction to clay and it mentions both methods
1) Drinking as mentioned the water after leaving it 'steeping' overnight.
2) Drinking the clay water when it has just been shaken (with 3 minute wait)

I know you say in your article: that people do both BUT my question would be - which do you think is the most efficacious?

If you are 'only' drinking the cloudy water: the clay can be used until it is used up (am I correct in this?)
If you drink all the clay in with the water: then you are actually consuming the particles of clay and it will need to be replaced often

My rational tells me that the latter will be the most efficacious BUT I'm obviously interested in your experience/opinion and those of other experienced users..

Greetings, and thanks for "stopping by" our little forum, here!

You are very astute with your general analysis.  I would say the higher the quality of clay, the better it is to drink it all!

However, there are some very poor quality (by my standards) clay out there being used medicinally.  One example would be azomite, which the Weston Price Foundation recommends.  It is a great agricultural clay, but not the best for internal use.  It is, MAYBE, 50% clay, and the rest is dirt, silt, sand, etc.  Nothing WRONG with it, but for a clay like that, it is better to allow the larger debris to settle out before consuming.

Next, a good clay is rich with natural gas.  If you let clay sit and breath overnight after mixing it, nearly all of it will have out gassed.  This is great for those who are sensitive to it, and it certainly tastes better.  But, as far as true efficacy goes, it is more healing and generally therapeutic with all elements "intact".

The type of water used can impact the clay as well.  With some very mineral-rich waters, much of the clay binds to minerals, becomes heavier, and drops out of suspension.

For people who are ultra-sensitive, it may be a good idea to let the clay settle out as much as possible, leaving only the tiniest, non-visible particles.  This would be more along the lines of consuming highly structured water, whose properties are more oligodynamic and homeopathic.

Some with serious reactive limbic systems may, in fact, only be able to tolerate putting clay gel on the roof of the mouth, and never consuming it at all (these people always already know who they are).

Last, be sure to check out our "Beginner's Guide", if you have not already done so.  This is great to give to people who might--at first-- think that we are a bit loopy to be "eating dirt":

Thank you for responding Jason

I'm very grateful to be 'stopping by your forum!' - I did ask the person who we source our clay from: did they know if there was still a 'Harmonist' movement somewhere? And if so: did it have a website?
He gave me your website and another..

What do you mean by the following? 'Dropping out of suspension?'
The type of water used can impact the clay as well.  With some very mineral-rich waters, much of the clay binds to minerals, becomes heavier, and drops out of suspension.


So for me to be clear on the most efficacious way to ingest the clay. Are you saying: put your clay into your water; shake it up and drink immediately? And that way: we will get the gaseous part which may help even more with our issues?

P.S. I couldn't find my post without going to the notification email I got when you replied: I tried locating it just by going to the website but could not find it.
How do you see the latest posts please?

Hi:

You are very welcome.

When clay particles are floating around in water they are referred to as being "in suspension".  If, for whatever reason, they drop to the bottom of the glass and sit there they are "out of suspension".  It simply means that the clay is no longer mixed into the water at all.

Yes, it is most potent right after mixing.  As stated in my general instructions, I do like to allow clay to sit for two or three minutes or so, so any general "heavy" debris settles to the bottom, but that is not necessary.  Once clay is "hydrated" it is "activated".

If you go to the home page, to the left of every forum name, is an icon of a piece of paper with a "turned in" edge/corner.  When you have viewed all posts in that specific forum, it will be colored grey.  If there is a new post, it will be colored blue.

Also, if you sign up for the newsletter from the homepage, every so often the system will send out a list of the latest active posts on the forum.

At the moment, it's not too busy, so there is not a lot of activity.

~Jason

Hi Jason

Which section has my thread gone into? I couldn't find it in any!

I hoped there would possibly be a 'newbie' section (for all the repetitive but perfectly understandable) questions us newbie's have..
If there was: I could see if someone else has already asked some of the queries that are occurring to me.

...this forum is a bit too new for a newbie section; the forums we had two iterations ago did!

The closest thing we have is a section called "Eytons' Earth Discussions":

https://www.earthcures.org/forum/index.php/board,4.0.html

If you go into your own profile, it keeps a history of both your posts and replies; you should be able to find your thread there!

'Iterations'? I like it - it's not very often I have to go and look a word up!  ::)

So if I look back at the older version: I might see the newbie section where the most obvious questions might have been posed?

...well, the original forum is long gone!

There might be some Q&A's left over here:

https://www.earthcures.org/earthcures/index.php

...and if I haven't mentioned it before, I wrote a Beginner's Guide, which answers (I think) every question I've been asked about the "edible" portion of clay therapy:
