Christine Garvin, certified nutrition educator and founder/editor of Living Holistically recently wrote about weight loss by Clay on ‘The Biggest Loser’ and ‘Just Jillian’ fame, celebrity fitness trainer Jillian Michael’s blog. Although Bentonite clay aka Healing clay has been long in practice in different cultures for detox, it’s becoming hugely popular among Hollywood celebrities and health experts.
Bentonite clay is volcanic ash that found its way into the vast oceans. Over millennia, this volcanic ash gathered enormous amounts of minerals while lying still in the water, which finally evolved to form a power-packed energized source of wholesome wellness with mineralized Clay. It comes in powder form and is mixed with water.
It is believed that clay helps dieters to lose weight by helping them keep fuller for longer, in addition to sweeping out the toxins and heavy metals from the body. Bentonite clay alone or in combination with Psyllium at times is used as a way to cleanse the body. Cleansing itself is believed to have many beneficial effects, including stimulation of long-term weight loss.
Psyllium husk and bentonite clay combination is a favorite among alternative health practitioners for skin and full body cleanse. Psyllium is a powder made from the husk of the psyllium plant. Nina Anderson in the book, “The Secrets of Staying Young: Natural Ways to Turn Back the Clock” states that bentonite clay absorbs up to 180 times its own weight, whereas, Psyllium facilitates removing the bentonite from the body, along with parasites and toxins.
Gary Null, PhD, noted in his book “Kiss Your Fat Goodbye” that colon cleansing is an effective and safe way to restore intestinal health and allow nutrients to be absorbed into the body. Null also states that taking bentonite clay can be an important step toward weight loss through both toxin removals.
Cherie Calbom in the book “The Complete Cancer Cleanse” recommends a cleansing cocktail that consists of water, Bentonite clay, Psyllium and Black Cherry juice or Cranberry juice. Calbom recommends drinking this mix three times a day during a cleanse.
