A few months ago, at the end of a consultation a client asked what I would recommend for her 15-year old son who had severe acne. I briefly said:
1.) Avoid sugar, wheat, dairy
2.) Detox with clay baths.
I just heard back that her son’s acne cleared up. This is what he did:
1.) He avoided dairy and red meat.
2.) He occasionally ate hard candy sweetened with honey or cane juice and used
Stevia as a sweetener in his tea.
3.) He took clay baths three times a week for three weeks.
The bonus for this young man was not just eliminating unsightly acne but being able to avoid the usual acne treatment with antibiotics and Accutane®. The side effects of antibiotics include yeast overgrowth that can lead to dozens of symptoms including chronic fatigue and digestive problems. Accutane® is so unsafe it’s banned for use in pregnant women. Instead, the usual benefits for anyone going on a healthier diet and detoxing also include better sleep, more energy and more mental clarity.
I’ve given out this information before but I’ll never tire of telling people to detox with clay. You can start with the “Natural Clay” from LL’s Magnetic Clay
The directions are very simple: blend up 1/2 to 1 cup of clay powder in your blender with a quart of water and pour that into your hot water foot bath or tub. Soak for 30 min and shower off. Do a bath or footbath at least three times a week, more if you have time. And you don’t have to worry about the chlorine in the water. Clay removes chlorine. I’ve tested it myself.
Clay can also be used as a light poultice to heal bad acne spots. Just mix a half teaspoon of clay with a few drops of water and apply it at night.
