Calcium Bentonite Clay Gel in Mouth for Infections and Abscesses
« on: February 23, 2019, 10:38:29 AM »
(from email correspondence):

We actually provide clay to several contract manufacturers who use clay in their tooth powder or tooth paste formulations.   Their products receive excellent feedback from their customers.

It is fantastic to use in gel/paste form to draw out infections.  Using clay in mouth can even be combined with oil pulling, if desired.

It has always worked for me, although luckily I have not had an abscess in many years!  Some minor issues with gums, the clay always works quickly.

For deep abscesses, it can take some time.  It may increase discomfort temporarily as the clay works to draw out the infection.  Eventually, however, it soothes and removes all of the pain and irritation.

Many people stop treatment too soon.  They stop applying clay the minute the pain stops.  To be effective, treatment should continue until all draining stops and the area is well on its way to being healed!

Gauze works very good, but I think a piece of paper towel works even better.  The paper towel material almost acts like paper mache.  With a bit of practice/work, you can mold it to fit perfectly to the treatment area.

I used a clay pack on a lower molar due to pain, I think I used a piece of paper towel. I put the pack in at night and sleep with it.  Easier than day time treatment for me.  The pack worked its charm.  Although I think I only used it until the pain left, if it happens again, I will keep using for a few more days.

..almost always works like a charm!

Did you know that Raymond Dextreit taught people to put clay packs on the OUTSIDE of the mouth to treat gum issues?

Even so, I'll always use clay in-mouth unless I don't have a choice!

I did some experiments years ago with huge skin graft donor sites, with a brave-hearted willing participant!  Actually, the person wasn't brave-hearted at all, she was actually quite frightful when it came to shredded skin.  BUT, the pain relief from clay application usually trumps all fear.

The test was to see if application of clay needed to touch the skin in order to be effective.

What happened is that the clay was effective at healing and eliminating inflammation, but it did NOT remove the pain.  At least in this case, the clay actually had to be touching body in order to remove the pain.

A discovered that a plastic surgeon saw the article I wrote, and used clay on his patients for many years.  BUT, because clay is not usually sterile, he used the double-dressing method that I pioneered in the experiment.

Sadly, medical doctors risk losing their licenses if they use clay on wounds, because the "medical standard" requires dressing materials and substances to be sterile.

There are many doctors out there who tell their patients to research clay for themselves... even though they feel that can't actually practice medicine using clay themselves.

I say:  Find a doctor like that! :)

Wow, a Dr that used clay. I would imagine there are lots of Drs whom in private life practice "alternative" therapies.   One applications that stands out in terms of pain for me.  I got stung on the thumb by some sort of wasp.  So painful!  I made a clay pack and taped it on my thumb.  Shortly the pain went away, I was amazed.  Thinking all was well in about 1 hr I removed the pack. Within a few min. the pain was back. Back on went another clay pack. I ended up doing that for a day or two, finally there was no pain. I've also used a clay pack on a toe I hit on a piece of furniture... ouch!  Its a little more awkward to keep a pack on but it did help with the pain and healing.

got rid of an tooth abscess recently:
June 2018 abscess and dr wanting to do a root canal treatment. I go back home and for the first 2 weeks, until the pain (was not very big) went, i, pretty regularly, put a thick paste of clay directly on my gum under the lip and on the lip, every night. then for the next 6 months, I do again, very occasionally. BAck to the dentist I ask for an x-ray (me who is against them) I really wanted to test the clay. The dentist said that none of his science background could explain that, I could go back home and voila! If i had done my first x-ray, now, he would have sent me home saying all is good! I must say I could not see the difference on the x-ray, he is the pro and I trust what he saw and said.

That's great!

I do know that if you diligently use clay packs (like you did), it will take care of abscesses. 

I like to use it in-mouth like you have.  However, Raymond Dextreit actually taught people to put a clay pack on the OUTSIDE of the mouth, on the cheek or chin or upper lip.

I think it works better to relieve the pain used on the site.

But, the fact that it works when used outside of the mouth indicates that it is probably the "field effect" of the clay poultice that explains the clay action, rather than "sorption", which requires direct contact.

For my abscess, I put thick enough clay directly between gum and skin and the next day there was still some...no need of gauze or paper.

I'm glad that worked.

It really depends upon how you hydrate the clay that you are using.

I used to almost always use what I call super hydrated clay.  Raymond Dexreit paved the way for me to experiment and understand the different ways swelling clays can be hydrated.

With our green desert clay and with most smectites (aside from a river clay like Terramin), clays that are hydrated to the point that the clay BARELY holds together is a "sloppy clay."  It is very slick and slippery.  If a surface has a nuetral or negative surface charge, the surface will reject the clay and it will slip and slide away.  If a surface has a net positive surface charge, then with a sloppy clay, individual clay particles or tiny clusters of clay particles will actually adhere to the surface.

This is why smokers and others with throat issues sometimes complain that drinking clay or clay water can act as a throat irritant.  The damage and irritation to the throat causes clay particles to adhere to the tissue.  This is healing.  However, because we breathe through the throat, the air causes the clay to dry out, causing the irritation.

Now, for external uses, I mostly make a sticky clay.  This is a clay that is a bit more dense and is not quite hydrated to its full potential.

I think our green desert clay is rare, in that you can make either a sticky clay or a sloppy clay, if desired.

I haven't been able to do that with sodium bentonite... but to be honest, I haven't actually set out to try.  The clay either turns out to be like puddy, muddy, or sloppy.  The sodium bentonite I use has 4 hydration points, but I don't think any of them are sticky.  That said, I generally don't use sodium bentonite for poultices, so I have limited experience actually making clay gel with it!

I still do like to follow the general principle of covering clay with a dressing, because this polarizes clay activity toward the skin or treatment area, rather than the surrounding air or tissue, and it slows the drying process down... but that said, it obviously isn't necessary to use clay in this manner!  I'm very pragmatic, whatever is convenient, as long as it works!

Thanks for all the info on this post and this site. Hope my experience with clay will help someone.

I solved some of my mouth problems using clay. I had a tooth infection, which was bleeding. Almost instantly, as I packed densely hydrated - activated clay, blooding stopped and no longer appeared. The infection disappeared completely after using 3 packs of bentonite clay. Second, I occasionally brush my teeth with a thick clay paste. After a year I noticed that my teeth had a more uniform texture and color. Third, I solved aphthous mouth ulcer (aphthae) that once appeared in my mouth by packing clay on them and rinsing my mouth with liquid activated clay. So I solved all three problems by using clay inside my mouth.

For internal use, I always use clay marked by the manufacturer for internal use.
For external use, I always use clay marked by the manufacturer for external use.

Recipes how to properly prepare clay, I found in the android app "Clay - cosmetic & healing". The clay should not be mixed with metal spoons, or keep in metal bowls or jars with a metal lid. Also, I experimented with spoons - I took 3 different metal spoons and filled them with bentonite clay. After about 10 days, I looked at the spoons and saw that one of them has a different color partially. The other 2 remain exactly the same, which probably depends on the quality and type of alloy.

In addition, I use clay (especially bentonite and kaolin) in many ways with positive results. I used bentonite clay for clay baths (for the first bath I was amazed at how dark the water was after bathing, for the second bath it is not), massage for tired legs and feet, cleansing and softening of the skin of the feet, activated clay for pimples and oily face (and for peeling dead cells on face skin), for varicose veins in my grandfather (he has less painful legs when using clay masks - wraps). For internal use, I sometimes use bentonite clay for diarrhea - usually several days, and for heartburn where clay helps me almost instantly.

It is best to buy clays with less aluminum content in them, and buy branded clay with mineral content highlighted.

If anyone has questions about my experience, I will be happy to answer.
Best Regards

Greetings, Phillip!

Welcome to our little forum here, thanks for jumping in.

I have to say I agree with everything you've said, your experience mirrors mine, and so many others.

I will say that it is better to start working on mouth problems earlier rather than later.

When an abscess gets too bad, sometimes a person cannot tolerate the clay packs long enough for them to do the work.  A deep abscess might take 48 to 72 hours to the point where clay starts to relieve the pain!  Get to it right away, and it is easier to treat!

I will also say that many times, people stop treating abscesses too soon.  They stop as soon as the pain goes away.  It's human nature!   What happens, though, as often as not is that in a few weeks it comes back because it was not fully healed.

Best thing is to keep treating it, maybe even for a few weeks, and this will help the body have time to actually heal the tissue!

Thank you very much for the information on the duration of the clay treatment. Do you know (or have experience) whether bentonite clay can clear/remove tooth decay (black caries) and remineralize the tooth cavity?

I do not found this information, although I research other forums, android app "Clay - cosmetic & healing", or Raymond Dextreit book: The healing power of clay.

Best Regards

...not by itself.

Extreme dietary measures have been known to reverse tooth decay and remineralize teeth, eating things like bone marrow, etc.  There are a few books out there specifically on remineralization and repairing teeth, if you do a search you should be able to find them.

This is something I'm not overly familiar with!   ...but it's modified Weston Price type lifestyle modifications.

Hi Phillip:

I did a quick search and noticed that there was more information out there than I thought.  I don't know how much is actually good, so here are a few links:

Here is the general ideology first presented by Dr. Weston Price, DDS.

https://healthygoods.com/blog/dr-weston-prices-diet-for-curing-tooth-decay/

However, since that time, people have made improvements on the protocols.

I THINK this a good example:

https://www.amazon.com/Cure-Tooth-Decay-Cavities-Nutrition/dp/1434810607

Hey, and if you succeed, please drop back by and let us know exactly what happened! :)

A very interesting approach to remineralization of teeth. I did not know about this unique investigation of Dr. Weston Price. When I go on vacation, I'll read a book too. Thanks for the recommendation.

I have been successful in using Calcium Bentonite clay as toothpaste and mouthwash. My teeth have better texture and color. I have one tooth with an early decay and I will try to use clay and maybe another approach by Dr. Weston Price for remineralization. This will probably take months. I'll write what happened.
