Synopsis: After failed surgical intervention and after antibiotics failed to address this six month old buruli ulcer, clay poultices quickly begin to pull out all infected tissue, and within three days, the healing process is well underway. CAUTION: Graphic images below!

Important Considerations when treating buruli ulcerations with therapeutic clay.



There is no known cure for Buruli Ulcerations other than clay. Antibiotics fail to kill Mycobacterium Ulcerans. Surgery is the only option, and quite often, surgery fails; one must surgically eliminate every last bit of mycobacteria in order for the surgery to succeed. Furthermore, surgery often leaves increased scarring, as one can see in the photos below.

Clay should truly be the first treatment choice, and not the last choice, for this extremely disfiguring condition. Thierry Brunet, author of Buruli Busters, demostrated French green clay's amazing healing power with the Brunet family's outreach project in Africa.

We now know that our favorite green desert clay is equally as effective as the French green clays used by the Buruli Busters in Africa. This is very good news for us at Eytons' Earth, because there is quite alot of this clay available, whereas the sources of clay in France are quite limited. While Buruli ulcers are still quite rare, this could potentially change at any time.

Insect carrying Mycobacterium Ulcerans


What causes Buruli Ulcers? An insect bite from an insect carrying Mycobacterium Ulcerans. The insect depicted is the African Lethocerus, but it is not the only insect in the world that is carrier of this mycobacterium.

The mycobacterium produces an immune suppressing lipid toxin in the tissue which also induces cell apoptosis. We hypothesize that clay not only immediately neutralizes this toxic lipid, but also pulls the diseased tissue, along with the mycobacterium, out the body. With the lipid toxin neutralized, the body's own defenses are reactivated, preventing the spread of the mycobacterium!

The Buruli Ulcer sufferer (images depicted below) was amazed at how quickly the clay went to work. Within one night, the wound appeared to be completely debrided. By day 7, it was clear to me that the infection was gone, and that the wound had begun the process of complete healing.




Please note that with Buruli Ulcerations, and any wound of this type, tha tthe clay WILL pull out and remove all diseased tissue, no matter how much of it there is. Any user of clay for infectious ulcerations/wounds must be mentally and emotionally prepared for this occurence, as it can be unsightly. Never the less, the tissue itself is already beyond saving, so there is no choice!

"This is the latest picture of my leg which has nearly healed. I found that using the healing green clay made the most progress for the healing process on the ulceration.

"My ulcer initially looked like a small cyst which gradually got bigger, i was then diagnosed with a bairnsdale/ buruli ulcer & started with a course of antibiotics & after 3 months it gradually got bigger, I was then told I should have surgery. Three days after surgery the wound re-opened to reveal a bigger ulcer this is when we found the healing clay.

As soon as I used the clay it removed all the dead flesh leaving a fresh wound ready for the healing process to take place. It healed from the inside out in a few months.

I am eternally grateful to Jason for his prompt e-mails guiding me through this healing process."
