I read this book and it was very helpful to me. It helped me to understand the very mysterious habit of clay eating. With some good anecdotes, and straight-to-the-point writing, I was certainly pleased with the manuscript. There are lots of clays on the marketplace and the author helps the reader to categorize the various clays and choose one that is right for him or her. Not to mention that there are so many different delivery systems for the clay!
I would enthusiastically reccomend this book. I hear that it is going to go to a 2nd printing. I will buy that one, too.

The Clay Cure : Natural Healing from the Earth
by Ran Knishinsky

For those who are not familiar with medical uses of clay, this book has some useful information. That same audience may find some of that information more difficult to swallow than clay itself. If this book were my first introduction to the subject, I might have dismissed the whole idea. The author is enthusiastic about the subject and the style is easy to read and funny, but the coverage is shallow.

I ordered this new book because other older books about eating clay (geophagy) are not easily available. I would like to hear about other available books that I may have missed. I was also hoping that a recent book would have the information on currently available commercial products.

Two pages at the end of the book give the names and telephone numbers of supplement manufacturers who have clay related products. Only USA companies are listed. This list is useful for calling to ask for a catalog. If you ask the customer support at these companies about clay products some may tell you that they do not have any. If you ask them for the ingredients of a product listed on these pages they would read you the list that includes bentonite without realizing that it is a type of clay.

Only the product names are listed. The author does not cover any of the commercial products in any further detail. There is no comparison of the products. There is a general discussion on how to select clay, but the only advice that stuck in my mind is: Ask which clay sells best.

He discusses the use of clay in treating a number of diseases. This part is good as a general overview. He adequately explains how clay works by attracting and removing toxins. He discusses the types of clay but leaves me confused at the and when he reveals that labels of commercial clay products often use the wrong names for the clay. Yet, for me, the long list of names for clay may be the most useful information to take from this book, even if I am not clear about the differences in their meanings. Now I could search for: clay, kaolin, illite, glauconite, smectite, (calcium) montmorillonite, Fuller's earth, bentonite, chlorite, vermiculite, Luvos earth.

Back cover tells me that the author is an owner of a health food store, and it shows between the covers. The most frequently repeated statement in this book is that anything you find on the shelves of a health food store is safe. Proof: nobody wants to be sued.

Those of us who cannot accept that generalization, will also carefully scrutinize another generalization: that there are no contraindications for eating clay. That may be closer to the truth, but I believe that there are contraindications even for drinking water.

Some practical advice is confusing and contradictory:

- "Clay should not be eaten within three hours before or after having taken medication because it will interfere with effective natural digestion of most drugs. ("Medication" here refers to any sort of drug, not a supplement)"

- "The clay should be taken on an empty stomach so it will not interfere with the digestion of food."

- "Furthermore, clay will assist the assimilation of food."

I do not understand how it could both interfere and assist, and how it can distinguish medications from supplements.
- "The more water you drink the better the clay will work."

- "Begin by taking the clay once a day on an empty stomach before retiring to bed."

I assume that water must be taken after the clay, to be effective. I am still developing the skill of drinking more water in my sleep.
- "If the clay either does not measure up to or exceeds [U.S. federal purity standard], it should not be used."

Exceeding purity standards is not good?

The reason I am still interested in health effects of clay eating is that I have read about it in another book that I tend to trust more:
Nutrition and Physical Degeneration; Weston A. Price

That book was published in 1939 by a leading dental researcher. Frustrated by the inability of modern medicine to stop tooth decay and other non-infectious diseases, he decided to take another approach: instead of studying diseases he turned to research of the natural state of human health in tribes not yet affected by the influences of modern civilization. He hoped to find tribes with perfect teeth and immunity to tooth decay and other degenerative diseases. He wanted to study their eating habits. He found them in many areas of the world. His results are enlightening, and deserve to be more widely publicized. The book is still in print. Clay eating was one of his smaller discoveries, it is just briefly mentioned in his book:

"... I have asked for the privilege of seeing what they carried in their knapsacks. ... among this group in the Andes, among those in central Africa, and among the Aborigines of Australia, each knapsack contained a ball of clay, a little of which was dissolved in water. Into this they dipped their morsels of food while eating. ... to prevent "sick stomach"."

At first I thought that eating clay was crazy. After reading this book I am a true believer. The author takes a step by step approach that is simple to understand and creates a strong argument for the benefits of this substance. Nature also uses these healing benefits and we are just getting back to our roots of the earth.

I had read previously about the practice of eating clay to detoxify the digestive system and wanted to learn more. Ran Knishinsky discusses cultures around the world that traditionally eat clay for religious and dietary reasons, as well as to supplement scarce food supplies during times of famine. It turns out that eating clay has a long and rich history, going back to the Roman physician Pliny, the Taoist healer known as Mud-pill Ch'en, and even Mahatma Ghandi. Prestigious journals such as The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and The Canadian Journal of Microbiology have published findings on the health advantages of eating clay. According to the author, just one teaspoon per day mixed with water or juice, or sweetened with honey or essential oils, can cure any kind of gastrointestinal problem, from poisoning to influenza to cholera to dysentery! The author says it's also helpful for treating hay fever, arthritis, tooth decay, viruses, bacteria, acne, circulation, eczema, cleansing the liver of toxins, and many other conditions. Easy to read and very informative: I tore through it in two days.

This is great insight on clays for healing. Amazing what 'mud' can do to heal. I did a bentonite/psyllium cleanse about 10 yrs. ago and I did it for 3 wks. Couldn't believe how 'clean' my insides felt after that. Like someone just 'unzipped' my body, took my insides out, threw them in washer w/Tide . I felt that clean. Also, I might add, I ate very little as I was trying to clean my insides and didn't want to dump food in there while trying clean all the old stuff out. Needlesstosay.........it did a GREAT job!!!!! One has to drink PLENTY of water while doing it.
