Detoxing Menopause

September 30, 2011

I was a guest on a recent radio show called Magnificent Menopause and Beyond, Sept 8, 2011. We did a great hour called “Magnificent Magnesium.”

During the show I mentioned that menopause heralds a time when the body is no longer having it’s monthly “detox.” Therefore it’s beneficial to add your own detox. One of the hosts of the show just wrote to me and said she followed my advice and ordered the detox clay I recommend from LL’s Magnetic Clay. She said that she was surprised at how relaxing the bath was…but she said the clean up was awful and stressed her out.

I describe the clay I recommend and how to use it at my Resources link on my website:

“LL’s Magnetic Clay is a sodium bentonite clay for external use. The company has elaborate instructions for doing these baths using a pound of clay, which you can do…but for most people it’s way too complicated and uses so much clay it can clog up the drain. Which means you have to collect the clay after your bath and throw it in the garbage. Instead, simply blend up ¼ to 1 cup of clay in your blender with lots of water and pour that into your footbath or tub. Soak for 30 min and shower off. Do a bath or footbath at least three times a week. You can do more if you have time.”

Many people use a full pound of clay when dealing with severe health conditions but you can’t let that much clay go down the drain like you can when it’s blenderized.

I also use LL’s Magnesium Flakes in the same clay bath. Some people say that you “should” do the baths separately. Personally, I do them together to save time…you know I love multitasking…so I just let the body sort out what it wants to do with the clay and with the magnesium. I’ve had nothing but positive responses from people who use both products together, so why change something that works?
