Role of Toxins - Mechanism of Action of Clay for Injuries
« on: April 07, 2022, 03:48:07 PM »
I'm considering the possible role toxins play in mechanism of action of clay in treating injuries.  Da Bang Therapy (hitting the injury site with a bamboo stick) is a healing technique used by this Wu Chu practitioner Steven Teong (sp?) to repair injuries.

See: acupuncture.massagetherapy **dot** com/da-bang-therapy (coverage of actual treatment starts at 3:00)
Direct link: www.youtube **dot** com/watch?v=1jRwBS4VDf0

In the video, toxins are shown exuding out of the tissue after percussion of the injured area.  According to the practitioner, the striking with the stick works to liquify the toxins so they can be expelled from the tissue at the injury site. 

The process seems to suggest that pain is not just a matter of injured or distressed structure, but that toxins are produced that must also be eliminated.  Is it possible that part of the therapeutic effect of clay is due to its ability to extract these toxins from the damaged tissue and allow repair to take place and that healthy blood flow, cellular communication, and electromagnetic fields are impaired until they are removed?

For sure your assumption is correct IMO. The removal of toxins is always key, as many byproducts result from healing, and most of us have heavy metals and many other undesirables flowing in our blood. While clay has many wonderful benefits, I would list the detox mechanisms as number one. If you don't remove toxins they block healing, uptake of nutrients, neurological and chemical signaling, etc., as you mentioned.
