Medicinal Benefits Of Redmond Clay

Medicinal Benefits Of Redmond Clay

Many years ago in what is now Central Utah, a range of volcanoes erupted sending volcanic ash into the waters of the ancient Sundance Sea. The water in this sea evaporated, leaving behind a bed of mineral-rich bentonite clay.

Redmond Clay is one of the best brands of bentonite clay available on the market. It is a white sodium mineral-rich clay that comes from deep within the earth. It is from a Jurassic source. The land the clay is mined on is in Redmond, Utah, and people in the community have been using it medicinally for years.

For many generations native Indians carried a ball of this mineral-rich clay with them in their packs, some of which they dissolved in water and ingested with their meals. Clay, a product of Mother Earth, was a natural medicine used by the natives for fighting many stomach ailments, dysentery and food infections.

Historical uses of Medicinal Clay

Volumes of books have been written detailing how bentonite clay has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries without anyone ever being able to explain what makes it such a great healer. Dr. Ernst Meyer-Camberg, a European doctor, stated in his research papers on clay that it provides relief in a bad case of poisoning.

An author named Raymond Dextreit wrote a book called Our Earth Our Cure: A Handbook of Natural Medicine for Today. In it he details countless cases in which clay accomplishing amazing results. He says the clay acts symbiotically in the body.

In World War I, both Russian and French soldiers were issued clay as part of their rations. They would use it for illness and to treat cut and wounds. He says that the clay draws toxins to itself, thus making it a perfect poultice for cuts and wounds.

If taken internally in water Redmond Clay will pull toxins and poisons out of the body by absorbing many times its weight, and moving it through the system to be eliminated. People have reported that they feel relief from the flu symptoms by drinking the clay water.

Animals Eat Clay

Many cattle ranchers have big piles of the clay delivered to their farms for the animals to eat. The cattle naturally gravitate to it when they are sick. It is a form of self-medication for the cows. The farmers have noticed that it helps the sick animals.

Intestinal Problems

The Redmond Clay Company started experimenting with clay that was found in veins deep within the earth. They took all the previous research done by the European scientists and did their own research on the benefits of Redmond Clay. To their amazement, it helped people get better from all kinds of ailments such as diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, stomach ache, acid indigestion, hiatal hernias, acid reflex, diverticulitis, colitis, rotavirus, and helicobacter pylori bacteria.

External And Skin Problems

Redmond Clay has been successfully used for external issues like burns, bee stings, wounds, spider bites, acne, athletes foot, bruises, arthritis, cuts, diaper rash, eczema, infections, mosquito bites, sores that won’t heal, sprains, twisted ankles and inflammation.

Burns And Bruises

I use Redmond Clay for any burn. It takes the pain away instantly and heals the blister quickly. My daughter-in-law burned herself with a curling iron. It was very painful, but I made some mud, put it on the burn and bandaged it up. It was better the next day. It works for all burns, sunburns, cuts and bruises. My husband is a contractor and he had an accident and mashed his thumb. It turned black and blue and was throbbing with pain. I put the clay on his thumb, had him wear a latex glove over it and the next day his thumb was fine and the bruising was gone.

Diaper Rash

To use it for diaper rash, just sprinkle the dry clay powder on the baby’s bottom. It seems to clear up diaper rash very quickly.

Clay Baths

Some people take clay baths. To do so, sprinkle about one-half cup of dry clay powder in the bathwater, mix it up and soak in it for 30 minutes or more. It helps detoxify the body. It draws out toxins and infections from the skin.

Foot Bath

For a footbath, simply put three tablespoons of Redmond Clay in a pan of water and soak your feet in it for 30 minutes. It draws toxins from the feet and detoxifies the body.

In The First-Aid Kit

Because it has worked so well for all these other issues, I put Redmond Clay in my medical kit. I use it first, for relief rather than running to the doctor. Consequently I keep it mixed up ready to use in a solution of clay and water and have it in the kitchen cupboard and the bathroom cupboard.

The Redmond Clay Company has been around for 30 years and there have not been any cases of allergic reactions or adverse effects from taking the clay. The company says that with all the research that has been done, they are just scratching the surface of what the clay can do.

Because it has so many uses, I recommend you keep it in your 72-hour emergency kit, as I do.

Redmond Clay First Aid
Redmond Clay jar

Redmond clay comes in a premixed squeezable bottle that is ready to use, or you can buy the powder and mix it yourself.

To prepare the Redmond clay for external use, mix the powdered clay with just enough water to make a gel the consistency of mud. Use a glass cup or small glass-canning jar.

If you don’t use it all, then keep a lid on it. If it starts to dry up, just add a little more water and mix it up again. Use the mud like you would a gel, cream or poultice. Put it on about one-fourth inch thick and cover it with gauze, a bandage or plastic wrap and leave it on overnight.The next day you will be amazed at the result.

Internal Use

To use the clay internally, mix one teaspoon of the dry, powdered clay in a half of glass of water (preferably filtered water). Stir it up and let it sit for six to eight hours. Then drink it down.

If you have a hard time drinking the clay sediment at the bottom, just drink the clear liquid that is full of minerals, but it is better if you can drink the whole thing.

The clay goes through your intestinal system and absorbs poisons and toxins as it moves through, pulling them out of the body to be eliminated with waste material. It is good to make a large amount of clay water, let it sit for the prescribed time and then drink it several times a day, depending on how sick you feel.

Redmond Clay Daily DetoxRedmond Clay Daily Detox is a natural toxin-binding clay in capsule form for those who don’t want to drink the clay water. The capsules can be used every day.

The Healing Power Of Clay bookRedmond Clay works inside the stomach to bind itself to harmful toxins.  As it moves through the intestinal tract, it collects toxins and can help move along and eliminate trapped waste found along the inner wall.  Daily use of Redmond Clay can help support a healthy digestive system.  It is packed in 100 percent vegetable-based capsules.

If you want to learn more about the benefits of Redmond Clay there are two books I recommend. One is We Eat Clay (and wear it, too!), available for free, and the other is The Healing Power Of Clay.

Redmond Clay comes in powder form as well as premixed first-aid clay and facial mud for acne and facials. It also comes in capsules for internal use.

    all you can say is god is great !!

  • mary

    I think the information on Redmond Clay very interesting and I thank you for sharing this information. Our Heavenly Father left us with many natural remedies.

  • s c

    This item was brought to my attention many years ago. While I’ve never had a reason to try it, I wouldn’t dismiss it. There is much to said for things that are natural, products that don’t require a prescription from an AMA Nazi and don’t appear on TV and seem like the ‘pill of the day.’
    If you use this product and it works, good for you. No one will force it on you, and it certainly doesn’t come ‘pre-blessed’ by an Obummer flunky who wants everyone to be a tool of and for Obummercare.
    Here’s to your good health – in spite of all the quasihuman types who don’t want you to be healthy.

    Every chemist and chemical engineer knows that bentonite clay is one of the best absorbers on toxic substances known to man. The environmental movement would not be possible without it. It would be impossible for the chemical industry to comply with the mandates of the USEPA without it. There are other absorbers available that will do the job, but there is known that is as economical as bentonite clay. Incidentally, one had better watch eating the natural clay because in this day and age it may be already polluted. It may have already absorbed all the toxins that it can chemically absorb. There is nothing special about the benefits of Redmond clay in Utah. Any clay will do the trick. It just needs to be clean and unpolluted.

    • Carlucci

      Betonite clay is usually put in colon cleansers to absorb plaque from the colon walls. If you’ve ever done a colon cleanse, you know how effective they are at removing plaque and colon polyps. I’m a believer.

      • Carlucci

        Whoops – I meant bentonite clay. Sorry. My bad.

  • ron

    I have never used bentonite clay but I have used acid earth made from white clay in Alabama and Mississippi. It is one of the best clotting agents there is, my wife cut her thumb joint to the bone and in just a few minutes of pouring the acid earth on the cut the bleeding was stopped. It was used internal to treat her grandmoms bleeding ulcers and kept her out of surgery. Problem is I can no longer find a source for this and do not know how to make it myself,and am down to just a few tablespoons left.

        libertytrain – While diatomaceous earth is a wonderful product, it is not bentonite clay.

        DE is a great thing for helping to remove heavy metals, and it is said to remove parasites and lots of other things. I’ve used it, and used it on my animals (food grade) and think it’s great. You can sprinkle it in their fur to kill fleas, too. I believe that it is primarily silica.

        Bentonite clay is nothing short of miraculous, in my mind. I’ve used it for many years for myself and my family, with astounding results. Many years ago I suffered from severe, long-term intestinal problems, and bentonite clay saved me, and quickly. My cat suffered from dysentery, and I mixed it in his food (it has no taste) with great results.

        It has so many uses, and is inexpensive. There is also another book I read many years ago called “Our Earth, Our Cure”. It’s truly one of God’s great healing gifts.

        • libertytrain

          I was responding to the white clay query above. I was trying to help the person but couldn’t find a good description of what he was looking for but the Wikipedia site came up with reference to white clay.

          • Kate8

            liberty – Sorry. I didn’t put that together.

            I’ve never heard of diatomaceous earth called acid earth. In fact, I’ve never heard of acid earth.

          • libertytrain

            Neither have I :) However, I found your info helpful

  • Rick

    Looking for Jurassic minerals used as fertilzer. Does anyone know where I can get that? Write me.

    I now understand why some cults have the norm of visiting the grave of a holly man who had died somee time ago. They believe, ingesting some clay from the soil around the grave (with water) can bring some good health result.

  • ron

    thanks for trying libertytrain, while diatomaceous earth is great for a lot of things. it is not what I,m looking for. I think that this clay is local to the southeast.

    • libertytrain

      I wonder if it would be worthwhile emailing a company like this one that specializes in clays. Not medicinally, however, this is a very unique place so they may know more than meets the eye. Located in NC

  • digest it

    Terrific work! This is the kind of info that should be shared around the web. Disgrace on Google for not positioning this publish upper! Come on over and discuss with my site . Thanks =)

  • http://N/a Haziz

    I have just started taking the Redmond clay I hope it works

  • David

    Be careful with the clay.
    Drink lots of water when using it internally, it can dry you out, (dehydrate you) if you use too much.

    My mother got very dehydrated and needed a hospital.

    If you have constipation, using this will make it worse, even when just drinking the water from the clay. So drink lots of water

  • jolene

    I used redmond clay on my hair, it works great. It was hard to remove but i used dawn dish liquid, it works. My hair was thinning. In one day my hair stopped thinning. I am going to keep this clay as a conditioner for ever. I think I will bye more then one bottle at a time. I dont believe in doctors to much. They have nothing for thinning hair. I believe in faith healing and Jesus sent me to this product. Thank you, GG

I take one spoon a day( morning) in juice and plenty of water. about 3 bottles of water thru-out the day or more it depends.
