    Bentonite clay: for best detox program results

    My first post as a newcomer!
    Does anyone know the best way to take bentonite clay as part of a detox programme? The instruction is to mix a teaspoon of bentonite in a glass of water, swallow and follow with another glass of water.
    Problem is it doesn't dissolve in water and I'm forced to eat it off the spoon in a big, gritty glob - it's like swallowing muddy gravel!
    Can anyone help?

    What i do is microwave about half a mug of water and then stir in the clay in afterwards so that it will absorb more easily. I have read that other people will mix hot water and bentonite clay(terramin, redmond clay etc) to the ratio of 1 tbsp to 8 oz on a larger scale in a pitcher and leave it in the fridge so that it is ready for consumption, the clay will settle on the bottom of the pitcher but allegedly the water on top will have the same benfit as the clay after soaking in it for awhile. I personally just mix it with hot water and stir it in for awhile and then when theres no more clumps i pour some cold water in to make it easier to drink.

    My son takes clay every day for acne and we just stuff it into empty size OO capsules. 5 capsules stuffed make about 1 teaspoon and he takes it on an empty stomach with at least 8 oz of water. Without the capsules he wouldn't take it because of the taste. We started this when he was 11 years old and now he is just about to turn 16 and every time we take him off the clay he starts getting pimples again so we just keep it up.

    Some people shouldn't use Bentonite! If you're pregnant or a senior citizen you should not take it within 2 hours of taking any meds. or supplements.
    You should also talk to your doctor first as it contains aluminum. As for preparing
    it use a glass bottle, or a food grade plastic bottle with a plastic not a metal lid!! shake well until all the lumps are gone! let it stand at least 5 minutes with the lid loosened to allow for it to expand and vent. Then tighten the lid and shake again.

    I'm very intrigued by this right now. 24 yo dd is off all meds after being on for years and she feels so much better. Skin has broken out though as expected. I love your idea about the capsules and stuffed 5 this morning with a high-grade powder I purchased on-line. I've never seen this way suggested anywhere else. Most say to drink it. I do that but I feel she will be more compliant with this method. Wish us luck and I will keep you posted on results. Any other suggestion are appreciated.

    I know I would get zero compliance without the capsules! Right now my son is on monolaurin (derived from coconut oil) for mononucleosis and he started getting more pimples due to a cleansing reaction from killing the Epstein Barr virus so I increased his dose to twice a day ( 10 capsules total) and that is bringing it back under control again.

    Well I think dd has stopped the clay drink. Sigh. I think constipation might be an issue.

    That's easy to fix, just get trace mineral tablets made from desalinified (desalted) sea water and have her take 3 or more (probably more) a day, whatever amount keeps her regular.

    Also make sure she is taking the clay on an empty stomach, with plenty of water, and drinking 8-10 cups of water a day.

    Also, you might want to consider the possibility that she might have candida that is causing the problem. Has she ever been on antibiotics either frequently or for a long period of time?
