...that doctors commonly tell people that a skin condition, caused by a virus that produces lesions, has no cure. But one particular four year old child suffering from this infectious condition rapidly cured it. The condition is known as Molluscum Contagiosum.

Synopsis: After failed surgical intervention and after antibiotics failed to address this six month old buruli ulcer, clay poultices quickly begin to pull out all infected tissue, and within three days, the healing process is well underway. CAUTION: Graphic images below!



A buruli ulceration is a mycobacterial infection that destroys soft tissues in mammals. Scientists and researchers have spent decades attempting to find a "modern" medical cure for this disease condition that affects tens of thousands of individuals world wide -- without success.

There is no known cure for Buruli Ulcerations other than therapeutic clay. All known antibiotics fail to kill Mycobacterium Ulcerans. Surgery is the only modern medical option. The goal of surgical intervention is to remove absolutely all infected flesh. Quite often, surgery fails, and either leads to a spread of the infection or a recurrence of the disease, leading to further disfigurement due to increased scarring (scarring from surgery is evident in the photos below).

Clay should truly be the first treatment choice, and not the last choice, for this extremely disfiguring condition. Thierry Brunet, author of Buruli Busters, demostrated French green clay's amazing healing power with the Brunet family's outreach project in Africa, clearly showing clay's amazing ability to permanently heal this condition, 100% of the time. Buruli Busters documented hundreds of cured cases, and presented their data to the World Health Organization in Geneva, in 2001.

We now know that our favorite green desert clay is equally as effective as the French green clays used by the Buruli Busters in Africa. This is very good news for us at Eytons' Earth, because there is quite alot of this clay available, whereas the sources of clay in France are quite limited. While Buruli ulcers are still quite rare, this could potentially change at any time; global statistics show that this infection is slowly spreading, withan increasing number of cases reported in Australia, West Africa, Central America, South America, Uganda, Southeast Asia and New Guinea.

What causes Buruli Ulcers? An insect bite from an insect carrying Mycobacterium Ulcerans. The insect depicted (to the left) is the African Lethocerus, but it is not the only insect in the world that is a carrier of this mycobacterium.

How does the infection progress? The mycobacterium produces an immune suppressing lipid toxin in the tissue which also induces cell apoptosis. The soft tissues beneath the skin are killed, and the immune system is powerless to stop the mycobacterium.

How does clay cure the infection? We hypothesize that upon topical application, clay immediately neutralizes the toxic lipid produced by the microorganism. Then, we know that the clay pulls the diseased tissue, along with the mycobacterium, out the body. With the lipid toxin neutralized, the body's own defenses are reactivated, preventing the spread of the mycobacterium and thus allowing the body's own natural defenses to "awaken" to fight off any remaining mycobacteria!

The Buruli Ulcer sufferer (images depicted below) was amazed at how quickly the clay went to work. Within one night, the wound appeared to be completely debrided. By day 7, it was clear to me that the infection was gone, and that the wound had begun the process of complete healing.

Please note that with Buruli Ulcerations, and any wound of this type, tha tthe clay WILL pull out and remove all diseased tissue, no matter how much of it there is. Any user of clay for infectious ulcerations/wounds must be mentally and emotionally prepared for this occurence, as it can be unsightly. Never the less, the tissue itself is already beyond saving, so there is no choice!

Buruli Ulcer - Healed Over


"This is the latest picture of my leg which has nearly healed. I found that using the healing green clay made the most progress for the healing process on the ulceration.

"My ulcer initially looked like a small cyst which gradually got bigger, i was then diagnosed with a bairnsdale/ buruli ulcer & started with a course of antibiotics & after 3 months it gradually got bigger, I was then told I should have surgery. Three days after surgery the wound re-opened to reveal a bigger ulcer this is when we found the healing clay.

As soon as I used the clay it removed all the dead flesh leaving a fresh wound ready for the healing process to take place. It healed from the inside out in a few months.

I am eternally grateful to Jason for his prompt e-mails guiding me through this healing process."
