Clay Uses - Psoriasis and Eczema - Wipe Them Out With Clay!

What are Eczema and Psoriasis?

Clay is a natural remedy for psorasis and eczemaEczema is the most common inflammatory disease of the skin and affects many millions of adults and children world-wide.  It is estimated that between 10-20% of the world population is affected by this chronic, relapsing, and very itchy rash at some point in their lives.  While not uncommon for adults to suffer with eczema, the disease often appears during childhood, or even during infancy.  Eczema is a general term for any type of dermatitis or inflammation and itching of the skin; characterized by red, dry scaly skin.  Atopic Dermatitis is the most common and severe form of Eczema, so the general term Eczema is often specifically applied to Atopic Dermatitis.  Eczema is caused by the an excessive response of the body's immune system to allergens.

Psoriasis is a relatively common skin disease affecting 1% to 2% of the population. The main feature of psoriasis is a red scaly area or patch.  The patches appear particularly on the knees, elbows and scalp and sometimes on other parts of the trunk, and legs.  Psoriasis can occur at any stage of life although it starts most frequently in young adults.  Once thought to be a skin disorder, psoriasis is now understood to be a condition originating in the immune system that can appear in many different forms and can affect any part of the body, including the nails and scalp.  It is characterized by skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal.  As underlying cells reach the skin's surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red patches covered with white scale. 

Using clay as a natural remedy for psoriasis and eczemaAlthough no one single cause for psoriasis has been found, it is known that factors inherited from ones parents are important.  An abnormal immune response to some part of the skin is now thought to be central.  Involved skin is replaced much more rapidly, and has a more vigorous blood supply.  This can lead to redness, scaling, thickening and itching of involved areas of skin.

With both of these diseases, recent scientific study has shown that the body's immune system is the culprit.  For some reasons yet unknown, in both these instances, the immune system begins to react abnormally, resulting in these debilitating, heart-breaking conditions.  In most cases, these maladies are treated with steroids and other medications with highly questionable side effects.  While there is no official cure for either of these diseases, many people have received great relief, and often total removal of symptoms by using clay - with Calcium Bentonite Clay being the clay of choice.

How Does Clay Help Fight These Afflictions?

Calcium Bentonite Clay acts as a magnet and a sponge.  Its highly charged negative ions attract all positive charged ions (bacteria, viruses, toxins, etc.) from your body.  These substances stick to and are absorbed by the calcium bentonite clay, and are eliminated from your body with the clay.  In his book The Clay Cure, Ran Knishinsky writes:  "When clay is consumed, its vital force is released into the physical body and mingles with the vital energy of the body, creating a stronger, more powerful energy in the host.  The natural magnetic action transmits a remarkable power to the organism and helps to rebuild vital potential through the liberation of latent energy.  When the immune system does not function at its best, the clay stimulates the body's inner resources to awaken the stagnant energy.  It supplies the body with the available magnetism to run well.  Clay is said to propel the immune system to find a new healthy balance and strengthens the body to a point of higher resistance." 

Fight Skin Problems Using the Two-Fisted Approach - Both Externally and Internally

While applications of Calcium Bentonite Clay may not cure cases of Psoriasis and Eczema, it will help in a significant way.  The effective action begins through the electromagnetic process of adsorbing the inflammation in the lesions, along with the deformed cells and dead scales.  Pain and itching stop almost instantly following the application of the clay.  The clay then assists the body in building new tissue.  Smother the affected area with a thick layer of hydrated clay, and then prevent the clay from drying for several hours by wrapping the area with plastic food wrap.  Glad Press and Seal works great for this purpose.  After several hours, repeat the process with fresh clay and plastic wrap.  During the day if the clay wrap is inconvenient just apply the hydrated clay topically in a thin application and let it dry.  Re-apply whenever you experience itching. 

Combine this program with ingestion of liquefied Calcium Bentonite Clay twice a day.  Drink 1 to 2 ounces of liquefied clay twice a day depending on the severity of the condition.  Drink it in the morning and in the evening or at bedtime.  If you prefer, you can ingest hydrated Calcium Bentonite Clay - 1 to 2 tablespoons twice a day.  Also soak 15- 20 minutes at least once a week in a hot bath into which a cup of powdered clay or 2-4 cups of liquefied Calcium Bentonite Clay has been added.  People report that this simultaneous external and internal regimen produces the best results.  It may take several months to control or get rid of it depending on how severe it is.  Also, it may appear to worsen at first as the dead skins flakes off and circulation is pulled to the area making it look red, but this is temporary.
