What are Eczema
Eczema 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.
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
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
Although 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
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.
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."
Problems Using the Two-Fisted Approach - Both Externally and
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.
