Topic: Clay Poultice and Infections
Synopsis: An individual suffers
an unknown and irregulator immuno-response on the arm. The
small wound and irritated area could have been the result of
an abrasion and contact with bacteria or possibly chemicals.
The area is highly agitated. A clay poultice is applied only
once, and for a duration of only one hour. An infection is
pulled to the surface of the skin during this time period.
After the clay poultice, the individual experiences no further
irritation, and the body begins the healing process.
A Photographic Example of Clay
Pulling an Infection
View our new basic photo set that visually demonstrates
a clay poultice pulling an infection to the surface
of the skin. A photo was taken prior to clay application,
then one hour later.
The clay used was a complex hydrated clay colloid
made from several different types of clay, including
calcium montmorillonite, illite and sodium bentonite.
It was hydrated with a specially formulated water.

to Pull an Infection
The primary source problem area is nearly flush
with the surface of the skin. Careful examination
reveals a subdermal infection ( the areas of
dark discoloration ) beneath the skin.
One hour later, after the clay poultice has
been removed, the source problem area is now
protruding from the skin about 1 1/2 millimeters.
The clay has pulled the infection to the surface.
The body's response indicates that the problem has
been addressed via no further irritation. One more
hour of clay with a new poultice would have likely
resulted in the small wound draining. However, the
individual elected to leave it as is, and no
further action was needed for the wound to heal.
Toward the bottom right, one
can see the area of the clay that was above the primary
injury. Different levels of moisture reveal that the
clay action was far more pronounced at the exact treatment
site than the surrounding areas. To see this difference,
one can click on the image to get a larger view, and
carefully examine the image.

"Clay is the most versatile, profoundly effective, cheap, mysterious, underrated, covered-up health treatment available.
"I know this because I am a natural health professional who uses clay personally and professionally for healing and health maintenance. I research and read everything I can find on the therapeutic use of clay. I have seen clay perform "miracles." I get very excited about mud. And in case you think I got my diploma out of a Cracker Jack’s box, rest assured; I have a bonafide Masters Degree..."
"...Bentonite attracts and neutralizes poisons in the intestinal tract. It can eliminate food allergies, food poisoning, mucus colitis, spastic colitis, viral infections, stomach flu, and parasites (parasites are unable to reproduce in the presence of clay). There is virtually no digestive disease that clay will not treat. It enriches and balances blood. It adsorbs radiation (think cell phones, microwaves, x-rays, TVs and irradiated food, for starters). It has been used for alcoholism, arthritis, cataracts, diabetic neuropathy, pain treatment, open wounds, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, animal and poisonous insect bites, acne, anemia, in fact, the list of uses is too long for this article. It was used during the Balkan war of 1910 to reduce mortality from cholera among the soldiers from sixty to three percent."
