"Everyone wants a quick cleanse or a 24 hour detox. Sure, party for a decade and then try to clean up the whole mess in a few minutes, it's not going to happen. Any Cleansing or Detoxification Program is a total joke unless you do a thorough bowel cleansing for a few weeks FIRST!"
"...I have literally traveled around the world in search of what a normal bowel movement and bowel habit should be like. Now, how many people can say that?"
primitive people all seemed to have one bowel movement within 20
to 30 minutes after each major meal that they ate. They just squat,
rapidly comes out within a minute, and they are done. No library
of magazines, no squeezing, straining, grunting, meditation or prayer,
it just came out effortlessly. They seem to average between 2 and
bowel movements a day..."

"Death begins in the colon... In my opinion, there is only one real disease, and that disease is 'autointoxiation' - the body poisoning itself. It's the filth in our system that kills us. I'm convinced that unless you clean out your colon you will never regain vibrant health."

Bentonite and psyllium make an excellent combination for use internally. A mixture of both of these relatively inert substances has long been used to cleanse the digestive system, reduce or eliminate food allergies, eliminate constipation, and successfully combat candida infections. Utilizing psyllium with bentonite can eliminate most of the uncomfortable side effects that some people experience when using bentonite alone, and provides a gentle means of cleansing the colon.
Psyllium, also known as Isabgol, is a soluable plant fiber ( Plantago syllium ) containing 10 - 30% mucilage. Psyllium is well known for its binding properties, and is commonly used as a safe and effective natural laxative. As a soluable fiber food source, normal use reduces cholesterol adsorbed by the body.
Psyllium has also been used to treat diabetes, diverticular disease, and irritable bowel syndrome. Psyllium can be used to treat any inflammatory conditions of the digestive system, including ulcerations.
Always increase water intake when using Psyllium internally. Drinking an extra six to eight ounces of water is strongly recommended.
While generally regarded as safe, a small minority of individuals do not tolerate psyllium well. Those experiencing discomfort should discontinue use, or start with a very small amount to allow the body to adjust.
Use of psyllium can reduce the effectiveness of prescribed lithium.
Use of psyllium can reduce the effectiveness of antibiotics.
Do not use psyllium within two hours of any medicinal substances. Use at least 30 minutes prior to eating.
Always start slowly; use 1 tsp. of clay with psyllium rather than starting with 1 tablespoonful.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day, it's not a joke.
Avoid ingesting clay/psyllium with oils.
Preparation: Psyllium & Bentonite
Preparing the Bentonite / Healing Clay Colloid with Psyllium
Please note: Both the Psyllium and the Bentonite MUST be fully hydrated prior to ingestion! We've received several emails from people following incorrect "psyllium and bentonite shake instructions", who have experienced discomfort due to the psyllium swelling in the stomach.
Using Clay and Psyllium Internally for a Gentle Detox
Using bentonite and psyllium internally may be done in the same manner as clay used alone. We do recommend, however, that the addition of psyllium be limited to twice daily. If one elects to use the psyllium combination twice daily over a long period time, prudence suggests that the two doses should be administered first thing in the morning and in the late evening, at least 30 minutes before breakfeast and at least 30 minutes after dinner.
