The Storied History of Healing Bentonite Clay

March 04, 2016

The Storied History of Healing Bentonite Clay

Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve is formulated to deliver relief for shingles, psoriasis, eczema, itchy allergic rash, jock itch, insect bites and stings, first-degree burns and scalds. The main active ingredient is bentonite clay, used in folk medicine by cultures around the world. Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve also contains a mixture of homeopathic remedies that pull out toxins and inflammation.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite clay has an interesting history as “healing clay”. People have been using clays internally and externally to improve their health and cure ailments for centuries. Ancient peoples from the Andes and Central Africa and the aborigines of Australia have used bentonite clay as a supplement and for healing aches and pains. Even before the Aztecs discovered bentonite, the Amargosians recognized its many benefits. Natives of South America and Mexico praised the healing power of the same clay found in Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve, as well. Indians in North America used the clay for healing, ceremonies and purifying the body.

The famous Greek physician Galen documented the way clay healed sick or injured animals and recorded his findings on the internal and external uses of clay and clay therapy. Dioscorides was known in the Roman Empire as an engineer of medicine who believed that bentonite had god-like properties and was ideal for therapeutic purposes. Avicena, known as the “prince of doctors” in Arabia, taught many of his students about clay therapy. The Bible also contains references to the healing powers of clay and the Essenes, authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, recorded using clay for healing a variety of injuries and sicknesses.

Early French cultures claimed nutritional and medicinal benefits from using the same bentonite clay contained in Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve to cure gum disease, rashes, diarrhea, ulcers, wounds, bites and hemorrhoids. Sebastian Kneipp, a German naturopath of the 19th century, along with naturalist Adolph Just, used clay therapy regularly due to the success they achieved with their patients.

Natural Findings Skin Repair Salve

Clay was used to treat Asiatic cholera in the early 20th century by the famous Berlin physician Julius Stump, and green clay was used by Dr. Meyer Camberg to neutralize arsenic poisoning. Troops in World War I suffered food poisoning, dysentery, diarrhea and infections from wounds, so German physicians gave clay to the soldiers as a solution to these problems. French regiments didn’t suffer from dysentery because they added clay to their mustard and Russian soldiers received 200 grams of clay in addition to their food rations. Do you see a pattern here?

Today, we are rediscovering the healing power of the bentonite clay found in Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve. Scientists in Russia protect their bodies from radiation with clay which was the preferred method for workers at the Chernobyl reactor.

Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve comes in a thick, concentrated texture; it can be diluted with water to whatever consistency is desired. Do not cover it with bandages. Clothing can be worn as soon as the salve dries. Wear natural fabrics such as soft cotton, not synthetic fabrics such as polyester, next to the affected skin.

Store Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve in a cool, dark place, away from scents and electronic devices such as computers and cell phones. When stored as directed, it has no expiration date. If it dries out, just add water and stir. It is okay if the salve is lumpy, too.
