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!
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.
Heavy Metal Cleansing / Re: Heavy Metal Cleansing - Simplicity is the Best Approach

Hi Goldengirl:

Welcome, and thanks for "stopping by".

I'm glad that the information here is resonating with you.  We try to be detail oriented and present accurate information in an easily accessible manner.  I'm always studying and learning and have been involved with various detoxification projects for over twenty years.

Finding the right starting point is the biggest issue people run into as far as tolerance to protocols, expenses, and basic "do-ability".  Once you gain momentum things get easier.

Let us know how things progress, if you get the time!

This "read" may be the best thing that's happened to me regarding natural remedies, alternative medicines.  I had just order EDTA for a HMD and am feeling so much gratitude for maybe dodging a bullet.

I'm going to take your suggestions since my spleen is nothing to mess with, without the best info I can find.  I think it's here!  Also you mention the digestive system first, makes perfect sense.  More later, I'm just happy to find your site and join up!!

I have been so disappointed with another website, that doesn't work properly, or is not set up properly, and really doesn't cover so many bases regarding these remedies, and how to use them.

Can't thank you enough, and darn happy to be here!
Exercise the Mind - Concentration & Meditation / Meditation - Beginner's Work and Book
« Last post by Jason on August 03, 2019, 06:41:42 PM »

I've been studying the mind since I was about 17 years old. By age 22 or 23, I was teaching very specific meditation methods specifically to those who could not meditate, blending a specific form of metaphysics with a few specific forms of meditation to help overcome common...  and not so common...  mental blocks.

Recently I've (re-)started working on an interactive "book" project on the very basics of meditation and metaphysics.  This will be a great starting place for those new to the field.

I use a lot of very awesome technologies/tools to assist training the mind.  The interactive portion of the project will be an intensive daily immersion into three different forms of meditation.  The time required will be from one to two and a half hours, broken into two or three sessions daily.

*A comprehensive guided meditation that lasts from between 30 to 45 minutes.  This uses a very simple technology to focus the mind, quite similar to the Silva Method.

*A comprehensive brain entrainment program that takes exactly six months to complete. This uses a wide variety of audio/frequency methods to train the brain to easily reach deeper levels of consciousness

*A mindful meditation, most probably done with Dr. Jeffrey Thompson's "Beyond" audio experience.

The "third" session will eventually be a free creative time to explore and develop very specific mental abilities, such as concentration, deep meditation, contemplation, and even the ultimate "communion".

I've decided to set aside about six to nine months of my life to fine tune and deeply research the methods involved, while I also write an extensive tutorial to clarify, simplify, and explore the depths of meditation... and from the exact individual perspective desired (as apposed to a strict theological approach, or one with a doctrine such as Buddhism).

I'm very excited about this program because as we, as individuals, get older, the old adage "The Best is Yet to Be" becomes harder and harder to justify.  I believe that the only way to continue to make this optimistic principle true is to start mastering the mind and liberating the heart; to do the work within. 

This work really needs to be started in ones 30's-50's, in order to ensure a good level of mastery when reaching the 70's and up...

This program will ultimately be a doorway to a life long daily practice.  I'm designing it to hopefully help avoid common pitfalls such as boredom, "overwhelm" walls, mental blocks, etc.

Check back here at the Meditation and Concentrate forum, where I will post updates as I am able.

Until then, of course, feel free to utilize and enjoy the forum on mental health, meditation, concentration, prayer, contemplation and communion!
Triphala is a great suggestion. It is very safe and healthy to use.

There are probably many people who have dehydrated colons where bowel herbs might not be enough to get the job done.

The three biggest barriers to regularity in the morning:

1.  Dehydrated colon due to lifestyle choices

2.  Low thyroid function...  This is the toughest one.  When thyroid problems become very problematic, it can be nearly impossible to deal with some of the symptoms.

3.  Drug use.  Even common OTC drugs can inhibit bowel function.  Some of them actually effect peristalsis, while others simply result in dehydration.  Plus, the more "powders" a person takes, the more fluids are needed to keep the body hydrated.

Finding out why the issue exists can help, but meanwhile, there are options.

Another option is...first thing in the morning...  drinking sodium bicarbontae water to flush the bowels.  This is actually healthy, although I would consider it alternative medicine rather than natural medicine.  It can be tricky to find the right dose.  Two little will result in no change to bowel function.  Too much will result in loose stools.

The problem here is that it can take a few hours.  The benefit though is that it quickly knocks down fungal population counts in the digestive tract.

So, if you are using herbs the night before, and it doesn't do the trick first thing in the morning, you can do a flush which is like hitting the reset button for you to adjust water intake, increase or change bowel herbs, etc. for the next day.

Lastly, keep in mind that bowel stimulating herbs tend to be habit forming, since they are dealing with symptoms rather than problems.  There are scores of people around the world that use bowel stimulating herbs for the rest of their lives to maintain regularity.  There's nothing "wrong" with this; the benefits can easily out way the dependency issue by far. 

That said, the "hard way" is to figure out why the body is having a digestive issue, and fixing that! :)  It is completely natural for the body to evacuate the bowels once to three times daily every day, and in an effortless way.
Triphala at bedtime, assuming you have an empty stomach.
Forgive the pun...I would like to find a way to have a evacuate the first thing in the morning (around 6 a.m.) by drinking/eating something before I go to bed (around 10 p.m.)  Any suggestions? 
thanks. Will give it a try!
I wanted to take a few moments and write up another "testimonial" report of someone using the basic digestive system detox/cleanse and getting great results.

The individual was diagnosed with a severe case of wide spread dermatitis that was bad enough to interfere with sleep.  For the first few months, it was wide spread on the legs, then it migrated to the upper body.

Three months of medical and alternative intervention produced almost zero results (all topical treatments).

After exhausting the topical treatment route, the individual became open to the idea that the body's immune system is completely regulated in the gut. Most likely, the immune system had become overly sensitive to environmental factors that were not problematic before... maybe the "air freshener" (can't stand those!), maybe the laundry detergent, maybe a food source, such as dairy or grains.

The individual did the "bare bones" digestive system cleanse, and the rashing started to subside at about two weeks into it.

The individual didn't do a whole new diet, but she already had pretty decent eating habits to begin with.

Using clay topically didn't do much, although EIS silver always eliminated the itching and redness. Ozonated oils also did nothing.

The individual did get good results with the LEOs blend I make (liposomal essential oils, the "anti-fungal" blend that is listed on the earthcures main website.... but she only got good results once she started the clay-based digestive system cleanse.

This is the 2nd time this has happened... the first was a very severe case of cellulitis that was bad enough to require hospitalization at one point.

This really hammers in the idea that gut health is key to immune system modulation; it also shows that a good diet is sometimes not enough to result in immune system normalization.
