It’s that time of year to get out your sweaters, buy some new boots, and make a trip to your local coffee shop and order you a pumpkin spice anything. It’s Fall! Besides the nice weather and leaves falling, there’s still this lingering dread of something that happens every year. Cold and Flu season!
Some of you might get the flu shot while others take over the counter meds. I was the latter. When I was a child, getting the cold and/or flu put a damper in my mood. It would last forever! First the symptoms, then you felt tired, followed by the never-ending runny nose. As I have gotten older, I found occurring things in nature that not only eases the symptoms but also gets rid of it. In my mid twenties I stumbled upon Bentonite Clay.
Bentonite Clay is a an absorbent clay that naturally comes from volcanic ash sediments. I know what you’re probably thinking. “Why would I want to eat clay?” I get it. At first, I was like “clay, really?” But once I did my research, I was blown away. Indigenous cultures used clay to heal. Mother Nature has blessed us with natural ingredients on earth that we can use everyday.
Bentonite clay is like a magnet. It goes through your body and attacks the unwanted substances that have no use in your body and goes through your digestive track out in your bowels.
Bentonite clay draws toxins out of your body and flushed it out through your digestive tract.
Some of the benefits include
- treatment of diarrhea
- irritable bowel syndrome
- food poisoning
- skin allergies
- chronic pain
AND SO MUCH MORE
You will need
- bentonite clay (obviously)
- 8oz of water
- plastic teaspoon (VERY IMPORTANT)
- cup (glass)
If you’re just starting out take one teaspoon of bentonite clay and pour it in a glass. Fill the glass with 8oz and stir the mixture. Drink it…fast.
It taste like…clay. It’s not bad at all. Don’t knock it til you try it.
If it’s the beginning of your cold, take it twice a day for 2 days. It is important that if you take this, you need a diuretic to help flush out everything in addition to a probiotic.
If you’re doing this as a cleanse, take it twice a day for a week. I usually do this twice a year and I haven’t gotten sick.
For anyone who’s tired of dealing with common cold, getting sick, and want to try a natural effective approach, give bentonite clay a try.
