  "What is the evolutionary significance of plant toxins and animal anti-toxin behaviour? From a plant's evolutionary perspective, a seed should be high in nutrients to support germination and seedling growth; the ripe fruit around the seed should also be nutrient-rich and attractive to animals, encouraging them to pluck and eat the fruit and disperse the seed. On the other hand, the seed itself should be repulsive to animal consumers, inducing them to regurgitate or defaecate it, and the unripe fruit should be repulsive, lest animals harvest it before the seed is viable. From an animal's evolutionary perspective, an ability to defeat the plant's toxin defences would enable it to obtain the nutrients in the seed as well as those in the ripe fruit, and to outcompete other animal consumers by harvesting the fruit while it is unripe and still unpalatable to them.

"Any textbook of animal biology describes the resulting evolutionary arms race, in which plants evolve increasingly potent toxins (such as strychnine and quinine), and animals evolve increasingly potent means of detoxification. While enzymatic detoxification has previously received the most attention, the work of Gilardi et al.10 and the wide distribution of geophagy among animal herbivores suggest an additional important means of detoxification by adsorption on ingested soil minerals."

Headaches and High Blood Pressure

Bentonite and Healing Clay: An Alternative Approach

One would be hard pressed to find the logic in treating high blood pressure with two clay packs to the head area.  However, this is the exact method of treatment that Raymond Dextreit, in his book Earth Cures recommends as an effective treatment for high blood pressure.

The metaphysical cause of high blood pressure is far more revealing than its medical science counterpart, and very clearly demonstrates a possible reason for such an "unorthodox" treatment.  The forehead may be seen to represent the application of will power, the center of which ( the third eye ) is one's nonphysical connection with nature and the beings therein.  The neck represents zeal and is the link between the conscious and subconscious mind.

There are 60 direct biblical metaphysical references to the neck and 13 references to the forehead.  The following examples clearly demonstrate an ancient understanding of the principles involved:

Genesis 27:40 "And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck."

            45:14 "And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck."

Samuel 4:18 "And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck broke, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years."

2 Kings 17:14 "Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God."

Isaiah 10:27 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing."

Ezekiel 3:8 "Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads."

Clearly, according to this rather esoteric understanding, high blood pressure is related to unliberated energy between the stubborn mind and the suppressed heart, which culminates, often as stress, in the neck and shoulder areas.  Further, this is often related to applying one's will and taking actions before understanding the situations at hand. The natural way is to pause and seek understanding before applying will.

Now, we have a possible understanding of the following treatment:

By applying one clay pack to the nape of the neck, and a second one to the forehead ( see the applicable section on proper use of pinpoint healing ), it is possible to significantly stabilize blood pressure.  Furthermore, treatment in conjunction with better eating habits can permanently alleviate the condition!

All caution must be used when applying clay packs to sensitive organs.  One should thoroughly review both the principles of natural healing and the principles of clay application before even considering treatment.  Under NO circumstances should one cease taking high blood pressure medications without instant and direct monitoring of blood pressure under the care of a licensed medical doctor with a degree from a legitimate, nationally recognized university.  However, those who may be considering but who have not started medications may be well pleased with results of both considering the metaphysical cause, and applying the natural treatment under the guidance of a licensed alternative health care practitioner.

Clay packs, once applied, should be changed hourly.  In most rare circumstances an out of body experience may be induced ( for the scientific folks:  hallucinations ) in those with highly creative dispositions.  Standard caution signs should be heeded.  If one experiences a severe cold chill, discontinue treatment immediately for a day.  If lower back pain occurs which was not present initially, discontinue until pain subsides.  Monitor blood pressure.  Treatment may continue until blood pressure stabilizes, and may be resumed upon return of symptoms.  Typically, the need for clay application will lessen as time progresses, until no treatment is needed.

The treatment for "pressure" headaches is similiar.  I've seen a severe headache eliminated in under five minutes.  Packs covering closed eyes, incidentally, have a very soothing effect on eye strain.

Start with a thick ( 1/4 - 3/4 inches thick ) clay pack covering the nape of the neck. This often has an extremely soothing effect. After between 30 minutes and one hour, remove the pack and place a new one covering the forehead area.
