...So, I went back to the clay last week and now for almost a week, I have drank the clay water and slept like a baby. And the best part is that once again I dream! Taking the pills, I never dreamed. It is healthy to dream. I am now sleeping at least 7 hours each night, and I never wake up at all. Now I am waking up around 7:00-7:30 am, and suddenly I have more DAY TIME and I am getting more done and have more energy. The longer I take the clay, the more energy I have, because I am getting--finally--the rest that I need and getting it in a natural, safe and healing way."

Synopsis: The parents of a four year are told by their doctor that the condition had no cure, and would likely last for between four to five years. The child did a series of clay baths and all of the wart-like lesions dissapeared.

My 4 year old son had a condition known as Molluscom Contagious, I took him to my GP a few times to be told nothing could be done; it was a viral condition and could take up to 5 years to clear up. It didn’t really bother him except in hot weather when he became very itchy. These last 4 weeks I have given him clay baths using one cup of clay 3 times a week. There is not one single spot left on him and he was covered in these little wart type spots under his armpits and behind his knees. An amazing result.

Molluscum Contagiosum Virus: A Viral, Infectious Disease

The Molluscum contagiosum virus only infects humans, and is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact. Small lesions appear from between two weeks and six months after the initial infection. The lesions only exist on the top layer of the skin. The central, waxy core contains the actual virus. The virus can spread across the body by a process known as auto-inoculation; the lesions therefore often appear in clusters.


The infection is cosmetic and not life threatening. Generally speaking, very little discomfort is experienced. However, scarring can occur when the lesions are damaged before having the chance to completely heal.

Since the virus only exists on the topmost layer of the skin, a cure is realized once every single virus-containing lesion is eliminated before it can spread to the surrounding areas. The cycle of the virus is relatively short lived (usually six to eight weeks). However, since the virus spreads across the skin, the disease condition usually lasts much longer.

Clay therapy, utilizing both clay baths and by spreading hydrated clay to cover the entire affected area, is an absolutely ideal method to treat this condition.

Adding a few drops of Australian Myrtle and Tea tree oil to clay gel when hydrating the clay (prior to application) is also an excellent idea, as both of these essential oils have been found to be beneficial in the treatment of the lesions. Silver Iontophoresis has been well documented to kill the virus in-vivo (in-body); therefore, using a silver hydrosol to hydrate the healing clay would also be an excellent idea.

Using Healing Clay Externally


Featured: Did You Know...?

  The science of clays is an emmense subject to tackle; one can get a PHD in clay science. The chemistry of clays is also a specialty field, especially studying clay as a colloid. One may thus also get a PHD specializing in colloidal chemistry. To understand the vast world of clay, as it applies to natural medicine and biochemistry and biological sciences, one would require an understanding of both specialized sciences. Skeptical? See the fantastic research of Sandia National Laboratories and other clay science research.
