Bentonite Clay + Activated Charcoal
Posted 30 January 2010 - 09:46 AM
Has anyone tried it? It's very popular with people who do detox's and colon cleansing. Bentonite clay is a little better than activated charcoal. Obviously you'd take it after dinner, before bedtime. I'm also buying some epsom salt for a bath/face soak

The problem I have with bentonite clay is it glues up the protective mucosal lining of the intestines, forcing your intestines to completely purge the whole lining and make a new one. I imagine that's not a good thing. But maybe it is, who knows.
The concern with activated charcoal is that it can absorb medications, so it has to be taken at least 2 hours from the time you take any medications. Also, you have to drink a LOT of water. In the curezone thread, some people got sick and threw up because they didn't drink enough water with it.
However, one thing that I found to be impressive of activated charcoal is that in lab rats, feeding them activated charcoal extended their lives by something like 35%.
I would be curious as to the success of activated charcoal on it's own.

I have also in the past tried the PB shakes, which is pysillium husk(spelling?) and bentonite clay. It was so awful to drink, that i had a really hard time going at it 100%. i tried a couple, but not enough to know if it helped or not....was probably the WORST thing i have ever ingested!!
bentonite clay also makes a decent face mask, although you may want to be careful how many times you do it every month. It is by far the strongest mask i have used, but also works the best at clearing out pores. I only use it once or twice a month, because too much of it can become very drying for my sensitive skin. Just make sure to use lots of moisturizer when your done.
Ive got a big tub of the clay, i like it, theres a whole lot you can do with it.
