Bentonite clay is derived from volcanic ash deposits. It has a long history of human use, including native South American cultures and the ancient Greeks and Romans, to treat a range of conditions including rashes, poisoning and diarrhea. It also works as a negatively charged magnet, attracting toxins, parasites and pathogens.
However, as a clay, it can get stuck in your system, so it is recommended to take it with psyllium husk to move it through your system and prevent constipation. Psyllium is an indigestible fiber that helps to move matter through your intestinal tract for elimination.
You can combine one teaspoon of bentonite clay and one teaspoon of psyllium powder in an 8 ounce glass of water and stir. Do not use metal spoons or utensils with the clay. Drink it immediately or the psyllium can form a gel that is hard to drink. Follow with another full glass of water and make sure to drink lots of water throughout the day.
The moral of the story is, make sure you are equipped with some form of binder whenever you are cleansing pathogens from your body! Everyone's body is different and one binder may serve better than another.
When working the powders of these materials it's always a good idea to use a wooden or plastic spoon, not a metal one, as you can deactivate the magnetic properties of the negative charge.
Remember to drink plenty of water when working with binders!
