October, 2010, I wrote a blog called Chelating with Clay and Magnesium to keep your arteries clear of calcium and toxins. Lately people have been asking me what to do for osteoarthritis. That’s easy! Clay and magnesium!
Osteo- means bone, -arthr- means joint and –itis means inflammation.
1. Magnesium will help dissolve the calcium buildup in your joints and dampen down the inflammation. Use magnesium flakes from LL’s Magnetic Clay, 1-2 cups per bath. You can also soak a strip of cotton cloth with magnesium oil from LL’s and wrap a finger, knee or wrist to give an extra dose of therapy to a problem area.
2. Clay Detox Baths may seem very simplistic. But think about it. Every pore on your skin is in contact with the clay in your bath. And clay absorbs toxins from your body through your skin. Clay can remove heavy metals, chemicals and drugs. I use the Natural Clay formula from LL’s Magnetic Clay. Just blend 1/4 to 1/2 cup of clay in your blender with lots 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.
I use magnesium and clay together in my baths. I know they have different functions but I leave it up to the body to decide what it wants to do.
I’ve written about several other therapies and supplements for osteoarthritis in my eBook, Future Health Now Encyclopedia. But I feel that it’s best to detox and de-inflame your body first. You really don’t need to add more things to a toxic brew…even if they are healthy.
