The Clay Cure : Natural Healing from the Earth
by Ran Knishinsky

For those who are not familiar with medical uses of clay, this book has some useful information. That same audience may find some of that information more difficult to swallow than clay itself. If this book were my first introduction to the subject, I might have dismissed the whole idea. The author is enthusiastic about the subject and the style is easy to read and funny, but the coverage is shallow.

I ordered this new book because other older books about eating clay (geophagy) are not easily available. I would like to hear about other available books that I may have missed. I was also hoping that a recent book would have the information on currently available commercial products.

Two pages at the end of the book give the names and telephone numbers of supplement manufacturers who have clay related products. Only USA companies are listed. This list is useful for calling to ask for a catalog. If you ask the customer support at these companies about clay products some may tell you that they do not have any. If you ask them for the ingredients of a product listed on these pages they would read you the list that includes bentonite without realizing that it is a type of clay.

Only the product names are listed. The author does not cover any of the commercial products in any further detail. There is no comparison of the products. There is a general discussion on how to select clay, but the only advice that stuck in my mind is: Ask which clay sells best.

He discusses the use of clay in treating a number of diseases. This part is good as a general overview. He adequately explains how clay works by attracting and removing toxins.

I read this book and it was very helpful to me. It helped me to understand the very mysterious habit of clay eating. With some good anecdotes, and straight-to-the-point writing, I was certainly pleased with the manuscript. There are lots of clays on the marketplace and the author helps the reader to categorize the various clays and choose one that is right for him or her. Not to mention that there are so many different delivery systems for the clay!
I would enthusiastically reccomend this book. I hear that it is going to go to a 2nd printing. I will buy that one, too.

At first I thought that eating clay was crazy. After reading this book I am a true believer. The author takes a step by step approach that is simple to understand and creates a strong argument for the benefits of this substance. Nature also uses these healing benefits and we are just getting back to our roots of the earth.

I had read previously about the practice of eating clay to detoxify the digestive system and wanted to learn more. Ran Knishinsky discusses cultures around the world that traditionally eat clay for religious and dietary reasons, as well as to supplement scarce food supplies during times of famine. It turns out that eating clay has a long and rich history, going back to the Roman physician Pliny, the Taoist healer known as Mud-pill Ch'en, and even Mahatma Ghandi. Prestigious journals such as The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and The Canadian Journal of Microbiology have published findings on the health advantages of eating clay. According to the author, just one teaspoon per day mixed with water or juice, or sweetened with honey or essential oils, can cure any kind of gastrointestinal problem, from poisoning to influenza to cholera to dysentery! The author says it's also helpful for treating hay fever, arthritis, tooth decay, viruses, bacteria, acne, circulation, eczema, cleansing the liver of toxins, and many other conditions. Easy to read and very informative: I tore through it in two days.

This is a nice introductory book to the subject of using clay for healing. It is easy to read and you can find the answers about different types of clay and how to use clay to rid your body of toxins. I would recommend this book to any person who is interested in trying clay to better their health. It made me interested in finding out more about clay and what it can do for you. I purchased the book from Amazon . com. The service was quick and efficient.

I have always been interested in clay eating. It is such a fascinating topic. I like the book and was able to finish it in good time. It is good easy reading and straight to the point. I just started eating the clay and hoping for good results!
Get this book on clay. You will learn a lot.Call the companies in the back if you have questions. I ordered from two of them back there, and they sent me the products already.

Concise, correct, and terrific reading. I have not been able to find any other books on clay for the past several years. The author explains all the reasons for its use and its history. I just started on my first bottle of clay and I am looking forward to the results!
