The vomiting/ diharea subsided but my fever remained the rest of the day... am wondering if anyone has any ideas if this could've been severe detoxing, or reaction to the clay or stomach virus coincidence? I called poison control and they scared me to death about possibly rupturing my intestines, so I went to the DR the next afternoon and he basically sent me home with no advice (waste of $!!).

I am weak 2 days later and am still waiting on a bowel movement of any kind...? any input appreciated..."

About Clay

Detoxify with Calcium Bentonite Clay Foot Baths - by Cheryl McCoy
With the proliferation of environmental toxins that bombard us daily growing at an alarming rate, more and more people are searching for safe, effective ways to detoxify their bodies. Calcium Bentonite Clay is a safe, powerful, natural detoxifier that can be used both internally and externally. It carries a uniquely strong negative ionic charge that draws anything with a positive ionic charge (bacteria, toxins, metals, etc.) to it like a magnet. These toxins are then bound into the clay molecule and are removed from the body when the clay is washed off or eliminated.

Clay baths have been used for centuries and are growing in popularity once again. They have proven to be effective in everything from easing sore muscles to chelation therapy (the removal of heavy metals). And now foot baths, while not quite as effective as a full body soak, are proving to be very beneficial as well. So, if you can’t do a full body clay bath, a Calcium Bentonite foot bath is the next best thing.

To prepare your clay foot bath, you’ll need a plastic tub. Most people prefer a container that’s deep, in which they can submerge their whole foot. Do not use a metal tub because the metal will react badly to the clay. A plastic shoebox, or even a five gallon plastic bucket will work fine. Place a towel on the floor to catch any splashes, and set your tub on the towel. Fill the tub about 50-60% full with warm water. Add a half cup of Calcium Bentonite Clay or more, and whisk it around until it’s fully dissolved. Submerge your feet, and relax for 15-30 minutes. If some of the clay settles to the bottom of the tub, that’s fine. You can wiggle your feet a bit to mix it back into the water.

After your foot soak, dry your feet and apply a moisturizer. You can pour the clay water onto your plants. They love clay water, too.

It’s important to remember that not all clays are created equal! When choosing your clay, make sure it’s a very pure Calcium Bentonite Clay, with a pH of at least 8.5. Avoid buying bulk clay packed in baggies. Look for a reputable company with professional packaging and good customer service. They should be easy to contact and be willing and able to answer all your questions.

"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..."

I feel detox clay foot baths are one of the most effective and beneficial detoxification methods because of their simplicity and also because of their immediate results. They can also usually be done without initiating detoxification or herxing reactions. In fact, I use them primarily to relieve detoxification symtpoms.

One thing I experience a lot is deep nausea, and of course associated deep fatigue. When this happens, I feel my body is dealing with a lot of toxicity running through my blood stream.

Doing clay foot baths can draw a lot of this toxicity directly out of the body, bypassing the normal detoxification channels involving the skin, liver, kidneys, colon, etc. This saves our precious energy and also minimizes wear and tear on the detoxification organs.

I ALWAYS feel relief from my symptoms when doing one of these foot baths. I feel it removes heavy metals and various pathogens. It apparently has a lot to do with adsorption of materials that are oppositely charged.

I will also use a footbath if I'm feeling I need a "break" from CFS. When I begin to feel down, I have learned it is very often because of a toxic overload I'm experiencing in my brain. This can happen even when I don't have particularly serious nausea at the time. Again, I ALWAYS get some degree of relief.

If you're interested in doing this, the following steps can get you going.

1) Order some high quality clay (usually bentonite) in bulk - I get mine from a company called evenbetternow. They also have excellent information on detoxification.

2) Use 1/2 cup of clay and blend in a quart of water for 10-15 seconds. It will quickly begin to thicken, so pouring it out before it gets too thick will make it easier to handle.

3) Pour into a "tote" bucket. Good sized plastic buckets that will accommodate the length of your feet can be found at any retail box store.

4) Fill the tote bucket with comfortably warm to hot water so there is enough to cover the soles of your feet (approx. 3-4 inches).

5) Find a comfortable place to sit or lay down. I usually try to do something relaxing like reading or even some sort of polarity exercises.

6) ENJOY! I usually do mine for 30-45 minutes and it really does give a break to the body and psyche.

We're all different and can experience different reactions from various therapies. I read and have mildly experienced that doing these footbaths can create somewhat of a "gripping" sensation in the gut.

This apparently is a mobilization of toxins. If these toxins cannot be drawn out quickly enough into the clay water, then it would be best to limit the foot bath time. After experiencing a bit of this the first couple of times, I no longer notice it.

I'm just remembering also that clay can "chelate" some minerals out of the body, so it is recommended to space them out to approximately every other day. I don't remember this being considered a significant problem however.

"...The use of Permethrin caused a cutaneous larval migration that resulted in terrible skin lesions. I suffered with these for months. When the doctor finally saw me he said he did not know what was wrong but gave me Erythromycin and Ultravate skin cream, which made things worse.

 

I finally saw a naturopathic doctor who gave me bentonite clay to use as a paste on the lesions. This cleared them up. Many, many people are suffering from this disease and are being told that they are delusional by doctors who do not know what this is or will not say. I have a lot more info and would be glad to help your research in any way that I can. Please look at the sites I mentioned. I would also like to know how much bentonite to use internally. This disease involves more than the skin. ..."  ... to this page ...

These are the pictures from my bentonite clay foot-bath experience.  You can see from the pictures that the 'clay' which is a liquid - did turn a darkish color after soaking my 'tootsies' in it.  I only used a small amount of the clay as I had borrowed that bottle from a friend.  It was a nice experience.  I don't know what the toxins consisted of, but it was not dirt from my feet.  The liquid changed from a gold to a grayish color.  This was after about 20 minutes to a half hour soak.  Your Health And Tech Friend
This is the type and brand of bentonite I used...
Soaking in a small amount; my aim is to see what 'toxins' might be drawn out through my feet...
I borrowed the bottle of Bentonite so I only used a small amount.
The bentoite turned a greyish color; my 'tootsies' were clean; it has to be some sort of toxin that was drawn out.
