Clay healing works in four steps:
1. Adsorption: Many toxins, heavy metals, and free radicals carry a positive charge. The negative ions in clay are eager to attach to these toxins, swapping negative ions for positive, and creating a bond that keeps the toxin and clay together in suspension until your body eliminates the pair together.
2. Absorption: If adsorption functions like a magnet, absorption functions like a sponge. It’s a slower and less selective process, but other elements in the gut become assimilated by clay, which allows your body to rid itself of potentially harmful material after absorption occurs.
3. pH: Clay has been shown to lower acid levels and neutralize heartburn, reflux, and upset stomachs.
4. Minerals: Minerals are essential to the chemical reactions that keep your body healthy. Clay is a rich source of trace minerals needed to keep your body functioning properly.
