One NASA therory says that the clay did provide a good shelter to the first bacterias coming out to life. The clay did protect them from sun light UV rays and allow their development on their way to life.
There is many diferents type of clay. Wich means diferents properties and uses. We meet them in construction, in ceramics process, in agriculture, in chemistry sector and the petrol sector also, in the paper industry, in cosmetics, and many others uses. Of course the most important for us is the impact on our health.
Animales and clays
From always, the animals did use the hight power of clay to cure themselves. How many times we did see this picture of wild animales taking a bath of clay in television or even eating it. From the start of the times, they did know how to profit from the healing properties of clay. For all types of wound, open wound or inside wound, something that could be letal in normal times, get cured by some clay bath, wich provide them with its antiseptics, antinflamatory, fast cicatrisation and pain relief.
It can be used either as external use or internal use. Most of the animals (except pure carnivors) eat clay. Even birds and mammals are clay eater, for the benefit of the intestinal transit and to evacuate all the bad bacteries. They do it time to time to maintain the good balance of their inside organs. Humans did copy them, and where you see animals taking a mud bath or eating clay youy can be sure that the clay is good quality at this place.
Still today we are using the clay to cure our pets and also the horses. They often have tendon problems and they don't accept very good the medicaments, so the clay is a good, natural and respectfull solution for them. Also it is very afordable!
Clay and Medecin
Men was made out of clay, says the bible. The antic history is full of mentions about clay in the medical treaties. The egypcians did use it for it conservation property in the process of the mummies, but also it was used by the egypcians doctors to cure burns and open wounds, and also in internal use to heal the digestive system. But the main use was in cometics to clean and maintain the skin clean and neet for the importants Ladies in Egypcian society. In the bible, Jesus do miracle with it, when it give back the view to a blind man, making a clay poultice on his eyes. Galien, a Greek doctor who did give its basis to modern medecin, did discover a very good clay in the Lemnos island. He did make business with it, and fast the "Terra Lemaniae" (Lemnos dirt), becames very popular all around the mediterranean sea 400 years before Christ. And still now you can find this clay in some special shop, mostly in Greece.
Our grand fathers and mothers did know much about it, and it was normal to include the clay in medical cure as well as plants. In fact it was the invention and industrialisation of the new medicins in the 1920', that put the clay out of the medical circuit. But at the oposit than plants and clay, the moderns medicins don't cure the problem, they just hide it, by taking out the pain to allow us to keep our daily ratrace! But the original problem is still here and will probably come back much stronger and with much more bad consequences.
The clay allows a complete cure process, definitive and in accordance with the human body. It will act diferently on each of us, respecting the diferences and every one specifications. There is no side effects, no allergies and no negatives reactions to clay when it is applied on human body. As it is only dirt, there no overdosis and if you miss it one day it will not change nothing to the cure.
The clay strongly actuate with our body, always taking the bad things (inflamation, dead cells, virus and bacteries,...) out, and brings to the body all the ingredients it needs to accelerate the healing process and fix the damaged tissues.
Still now we don't know all the possibilities of the clay on the human and animal body, and even on the plants it works very good to heal broken branches or spread on the dirt!
