I would enthusiastically reccomend this book. I hear that it is going to go to a 2nd printing. I will buy that one, too.
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.Read more ›
