Have you ever walked into your local Dairy Queen and ordered a radioactive banana split? Or possibly more likely, have you ever booked an airline flight and asked for your personal 2 REM dose of radiation? Right now, everyone on earth is bathed in a soup of radioactive energy. There has never before been a time when it was more important to cleanse our bodies of ever present radiation: alpha particles, beta particles, gamma rays, muons, neutrinos. The list is long and puzzling, and most of it has nothing to do with human activities.

Living Clay,Nature’s Own Miracle Cure is the definitive guide for using and understanding the multiple benefits of Calcium Bentonite Clay. This natural mineral will do more than any other substance (natural or pharmaceutical) to remove radioactive isotopes from our bodies and to assist our bodies in returning to a state of good health. However, all clays are not alike. It is important to know your clays and to find a pure clay.  Go to www.AboutClay.com to read the article, Criteria for Selecting a Quality Healing Clay.

No matter what we do, no matter how health conscious we’ve become, no matter what precautions are taken, our bodies are radiated daily. It is crucially important to counter this bombardment, to remove this radiation and the resultant damage from our bodies on a daily basis. There is nothing better for this purpose than using a quality living clay on a daily basis. So, just what is it you need to protect yourself from?

In the past 30 years we have had 3 major radioactive incidents – Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and continuing releases in the Marshall Islands. Most of the clean-up at Chernobyl was accomplished with Bentonite Clay. The Marshall Islands have been repeatedly “dusted” with Calcium Bentonite Clay, but the level of radiation continually seeping from below ground has yet to be completely and permanently contained. The Marshall Islands have received the equivalent of 80 atomic bombs the size of the one dropped on Hiroshima.

So, it would seem that the powers-that-be would want everyone to have their own supply of Calcium Bentonite Clay, since that’s what they use for their own messes…not so. Either they have not connected the dots, or they are stockpiling the clay for their own mess ups.

The “incident” at Three Mile Island was a wakeup call for most adults in the US. Simply put, a nuclear reactor near Harrisburg, PA, overheated causing a core reactor to literally melt down. It became so “hot” with radioactivity it literally melted through six feet of solid concrete and steel housing. In doing so, it released radioactive gasses and mist into the air. Not surprisingly, wide scale panic ensued.

It’s important to know the truth about radiation so that correct decisions can be made. It’s equally important to know what beliefs are realistic and which are not.

Radiation is energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, sometimes referred to generically as radio waves. Some radiation is quite harmless and passes through our bodies on a 24 hour a day basis (e.g., radio and TV wave frequencies). Higher spectrum, faster moving, wave frequencies can harm at a cellular level (e.g., x-rays or radioactive metals such as plutonium or uranium).

Then, there is Ionizing Radiation. Ionization is the ejection of one or more electrons from an atom or molecule to produce a fragment with a new positive charge (positive ion). The classification of radiation as “ionizing” is essentially a statement that it has enough quantum energy to eject an electron. This is a crucial distinction, since “ionizing radiation” can produce a number of physiological effects, such as those associated with risk of mutation or cancer, which non-ionizing radiation cannot directly produce at any intensity.

The unit of measurement used to measure radiation dosage is the rem, which stands for roentgen equivalent in man. It represents the amount of radiation needed to produce a particular amount of damage to living tissue. The total dose of rems determines how much harm a person suffers. At Hiroshima and Nagasaki, people received a dose of rems at the instant of the explosions, then more from the surroundings and, in limited areas, from fallout.  Fallout is composed of radioactive particles that are carried into the upper atmosphere by a nuclear explosion or meltdown and that eventually fall back to the earth’s surface.

Although a dose of just 25 rems causes some detectable changes in blood, doses to near 100 rems usually have no immediate harmful effects. Doses above 100 rems cause the first signs of radiation sickness including:

·  Nausea

·  Vomiting

·  Headache

·  Some loss of white blood cells

Doses of 300 rems or more cause temporary hair loss, as well as more significant internal harm, including damage to nerve cells and the cells that line the digestive tract. Severe loss of white blood cells, which are the body’s main defense against infection, makes radiation victims highly vulnerable to disease. Radiation also reduces production of blood platelets, which aid blood clotting, so victims of radiation sickness are also vulnerable to hemorrhaging.

Half of all people exposed to 450 rems die, and doses of 800 rems or more are always fatal. Besides the symptoms mentioned above, these people also suffer from fever and diarrhea. As of yet, there is no effective treatment for radiation exposures over 800 rems, and death occurs in 1-4 days.

Uranium 235 Isotope (commonly referred to as U235) is a highly charged, positive ion metal found naturally on our planet. Natural uranium mined from the ground is 0.7% pure radiation. Weapons grade U235 has been enriched to 90%+ pure positive ionic radiation. That’s one purpose of nuclear reactors – enrichment. Weapons grade U235 is used in nuclear warheads.

A second type of U235 is known as “waste.” U235 is the garbage left over from the enrichment process. Nuclear waste is commonly 3-5% pure radiation. Some nuclear medical wastes fall into this category as well. A weapons grade U235 warhead containing 90%+ enriched radiation will deliver doses of 1,000+ rems of energy over a several mile radius. At this level, all exposed living things will be killed.

The government, in its report titled “Department of Homeland Security Report on Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD) Preparedness: Medical Preparedness and First Responders Sub-Group” states that once first responders reach the site, it will take 2-24 hours to test for presence of all 6 sub-group types of typical radioactive materials. All you need to know is that a 10 minute delay is much too long.

There are 3 types of appropriate responses to such a blast. The first would be for someone in the fallout area. The second would be for those at, or very near, the blast site who have direct contamination. And the third category would be those outside the potential fallout area and away from any contamination.

For those in the first category (within the potential fallout area), like what might be possible with the Japan catastrophe of March 2011, take the following steps:

1.  If outdoors, come inside immediately.

2.  When in your home or apartment, quickly close all windows and doors.

3.  Turn off any outside air source. You may leave on air conditioning or heat if it can be set to utilize re-circulated air from inside the home.
Note: The benefit of steps 1-3 is to close your home to possible contamination from the air outside. It could be only seconds before the blast contamination is at your doorstep.

4.  Go immediately to an area of your home set aside for such an emergency. Strip off all of your clothing. Using prepared hydrated Calcium Bentonite Clay: Get in the shower and dip your hands into it. Quickly apply the clay over every inch of your body (with the exception of in your eyes). Cover your hair and all nooks and crannies. Scrub your body thoroughly with the clay. Leave it on for 10 minutes. Next, wash off, while continuing to scrub.

5.  After drying off, apply another thin film coating of clay and stand with your arms away from your sides and feet slightly apart. In 5-15 minutes the clay will dry on your body.

6.  After the clay has dried, put on a disposable pull-on garment, a surgical-type face mask, and disposable shoe covers on your bare feet.

7.  Using a prepared liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay and a jar of potassium iodine (KI) into the kitchen and set them on the counter by the sink.  Drink 4 ounces of the liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay and take 2 potassium iodine (KI) tablets or as directed on the label. Periodically every 2-3 hours drink another 2 ounces of the liquid clay.

8.  If service is available stay tuned to your TV or radio to stay informed.

Note: Get as comfortable as possible because this will be your repetitive treatment and mode of dress for several days to come. You will sleep well knowing you are being protected from radiation.

9.  Take a clay bath daily using 1-2 cups of dry clay until danger has passed. You can also give your pets a clay bath.

10.   Wash your clothes by adding ¼ cup liquid clay per load.

11.   When it is safe to go outside, get a clean new garden sprayer and add ½ cup of liquid clay to gallon of water and spray your lawns and gardens.

12.   Rinse fresh vegetables in clay water.

For those fortunate enough to not have been in a fallout area, please remain out of the areas affected with radioactive fallout.  Drink 2 ounces of clay twice daily, take 1 Potassium Iodine tablet every morning and take a weekly clay bath.  These are precautionary maintenance doses that are healthy for all of us.  Simply stay away from contaminated areas until the cleanup has been certified.

As you learned earlier, radioactive material is formed carrying a positive ionic charge. Calcium Bentonite Clay is a negatively charged ion. Simply put, Calcium Bentonite Clay adsorbs and absorbs, capturing positive charged ions, and you wash them off or pass them through your body. Unlike other clays, only Smectites (Bentonites) can absorb andadsorb and are characterized by its expandable properties.

Radiation is a real health problem. Calcium Bentonite Clay is the real solution. I recommend reading the book Living Clay, Nature’s Own Miracle Cure for protocols, mixing directions, and to learn more about protecting your family and yourself from our inevitable exposure to radiation.

to Protect Yourself from Mercury

March 19 - Mercury is a naturally occurring metal that is toxic to vertebrates, including humans. Even in very small amounts...

(NaturalNews) Mercury is a naturally occurring metal that is toxic to vertebrates, including humans. Even in very small amounts, it can cause severe damage to your neurological functions and multiple organ systems. Mercury is "hiding" in many things we come in contact with daily; everything from our food to the fillings in our teeth, and even our light bulbs. It seems to be everywhere. It was recently reported that HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) has been contaminated with mercury. Since such a vast number of processed foods contain HFCS, any time you eat any pre-packaged food, you're most likely eating mercury right along with it. But mercury isn't just in junk food. Even healthy foods can be hiding mercury. Unfortunately, it is reported to be abundant in fish, one of the foods considered to be most healthy for us to consume. Calcium Bentonite Clay, thankfully, is a safe, natural way to help remove mercury from our bodies and protect ourselves from the ravages of this contaminant.

Calcium Bentonite Clay, also known as Living Clay, can be used both internally and externally to cleanse and detoxify the body. Calcium Bentonite Clay has a very strong negative ionic charge. When it comes in contact with any substance that has a positive ionic charge (such as metals, toxins, bacteria, etc.) it attracts it like a magnet, and the two become bound together. The clay both adsorbs the positive-charged ion (attaches it to its surface like VELCRO(R)), and absorbs it as well. As the clay passes through your system, it attracts and binds the metals and toxins, which are then eliminated from the body along with the clay.

In conjunction with taking clay internally, external applications are also very effective and helpful in removing mercury. Clay baths are often used as a part of successful chelation therapy. Calcium Bentonite Clay has a uniquely strong ability to pull toxins and metals out through the pores of the skin, binding to them and removing them from the body. And unlike many other chelation methods, clay is natural, safe and much gentler to the system.

To help rid your body of mercury, the best approach is the double fisted, internal/external approach. Take the Calcium Bentonite Clay internally (approximately 2 ounces of liquid clay once or twice a day) and take clay baths twice a week (using approximately 1-2 cups of dry powder clay per bath). Be sure you're using a pure, natural Calcium Bentonite Clay that has a pH of at least 9.0 for best results.

Professors study healing potential of clay

by Dennis Wagner 

The Arizona Republic

Two Arizona State University professors are trying to dig up new medical cures, studying the use of clay to combat some of the planet's deadliest bacterial infections.

The researchers, geochemist Lynda Williams and microbiologist Shelley Haydel, already have demonstrated that certain clays are able to wipe out microbes responsible for MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), as well as intestinal bugs such as E. coli and salmonella.

But they remain stumped as to how it works.

"We know they kill bacteria, but we don't know why," Williams said. "The 'eureka' moment - we haven't had that yet."

On Sunday, Haydel presented the team's latest findings at a meeting of the American Chemical Society in New Orleans. No clinical studies have been conducted with lab animals or human patients, but the researchers are seeking new grant funding and hope to begin studies on mice.

The goal is to find a cheap, accessible cure for deadly infections worldwide, Williams said. "That would make me happiest. . . . And I'm sure pharmaceutical companies would like to know the recipe."

Successful uses

Williams said she became interested in the medicinal potential of clay five years ago after learning about Line Brunet de Courssou, a French diplomat's wife then working in the Ivory Coast with victims of Buruli ulcers, caused by a flesh-eating mycobacterium. Photographs documented that daily poultices of green volcanic mud destroyed the microbes and enhanced healing for about 100 patients.

"It killed the ulcer. The only other treatment was excision (by surgery)," Williams said. "I was fascinated by the story."

Williams was not surprised that clay can be beneficial. Mud baths are popular spa attractions, and field geologists often treat wounds with clay because it stems bleeding and absorbs toxins. But she found no scientific studies about clay's antiseptic properties.

Two years ago, Williams and Haydel teamed up, using a $440,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to analyze chemicals with an electron microscope and conduct lab tests on bacteria.

They focused on volcanic soils known as bentonite, featuring layered silicate sheets. Clay is essentially a type of dirt formed of crystalline particles that measure 2 microns or less in diameter. The expandable structure absorbs water along with elements such as aluminum, iron and magnesium. As a result, every vein of clay features unique compounds and acidity levels.

So far, the scientists have checked more than 30 different clays from around the world, placing extracts in petri dishes with MRSA bacteria and other public-health threats.

Haydel recalls her shock when two additional clay samples, from Nevada and Oregon, annihilated pathogens. "I thought, 'We might have something here. We need to find out how it's killing them.' "

Mystery healing

That question remains unanswered and puzzling. The antiseptic clays are not uniform in chemistry or color. The microbes they kill differ in structure and genetics. So the antibacterial recipe remains a mystery.

Williams and Haydel admit to initial misgivings about their study because clay's medicinal power is so tangled in folk remedies and fraud.

Historical references date to the Greeks, and to a biblical account of Christ mixing spit and clay to cure a blind man. The substance was used to treat soldiers' wounds in World War I. It has been consumed as a palliative by indigenous groups and by pregnant women in Appalachia.

Even today, a Google search pulls up dubious claims about clay as a remedy for everything from acne to autism to indigestion.

Williams held up a bottle of gray-colored water and gunk that the researchers acquired. Known as "Black Manna," the product had no impact on microbes in lab tests, she said, but the label claims it "increases overall sense of well-being."

"Nobody's ever shown that the majority of what's said out there is scientifically accurate," Haydel said.

She and Williams set out to change that, at least in terms of killing bacteria. After reporting initial findings to the Geological Society of America last year, they began receiving clays and testimonials from around the world. One man claimed to be selling Dead Sea mud that actually was Illinois dirt laced with cornstarch, Williams said. Another clay with supposed healing powers contained toxic concentrations of arsenic at 500 times the level approved by the Environmental Protection Agency.

"Until we understand the chemistry, I have to warn people not to be eating clay," Williams said.

To that end, the researchers are seeking a five-year, $1.8 million grant for further study. Haydel said she's already applied clay to a cut she had. "It was actually soothing."

But the active compounds have to be isolated and clinical studies must be done before human treatment is even considered.

"We've got a lot of ideas," Haydel said, "but we're years away from ever internalizing this and making sure it's safe."
