  A German scientist once described the bactericidal properties of clay:

"The curative properties of clay are founded in its special physical characteristics, above all in the distribution of its minute particles. Individual clay particles are smaller than many bacteria. If infected mucous membranes are more or less flooded with clay, the bacteria are completely surrounded by clay particles and are thus separated from their source of nourishment and become imbedded in the inorganic material. Growth and the survivability of the bacteria are thus halted almost instantaneously, and from this explained strikingly speedy abatement of the symptoms of infection and/or symptoms of poisoning in acute infectious diseases of the alimentary canal.

-- Julius Stumpf, Bolus fur medizinische Anwenduno Darmstadt, 1916, p. 19.



Natural Therapuetic Hot Springs Water

Natural hot springs are often located in areas long considered by the indigenous peoples native to the local area as holy and sacred ground. In North America, Native American tribes treated ( and still do ) sacred hot springs and the surrounding land with deep respect, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Traditionally, sacred lands and especially sacred springs were places of great peace, honored by all tribes, even warring ones, at all times.

Modern society tends to consider this practice of a deep respect for "Natura-Divina" romantically. And it is true: There is a deep beauty associated with all forms of sacredness and purity. It is understandable that a society so far removed from nature would find great attraction to the ideas of the natural traditions.

However, the astute researcher will eventually be led to the inquiry: Are the spiritual traditions associated with sacred lands purely cultural and spiritual practices, or is there a basis for these traditions in a far more tangible and physical reality? Is there something special about the lands honored by the peoples of the world?

Sacred Lands

Religious Perspective: From the Garden of Eden Genesis story, to the sacred land of Jerusalem, holy lands have had a tremendous cultural impact world-wide, and beliefs associated with sacred lands have literally carved vast channels in history, significantly influencing the course of modern civilization. Areas associated with "divine influence" have been recorded by every civilization in every part of the world since the beginning of recorded history.

Scientific Perspective: Humanity, as a byproduct of natural evolution, is dependent upon the forces of nature responsible for both the support of life, and the forces responsible for the formation of complex cell organisms. Locations in nature that are prized by indigenous cultures, upon careful examination, often contain rare elements in the natural environment that are super-conducive to human development and/or healing.

To give an example, some areas ( such as the Himalayan Mountains in Pakastan, home of the Hunzanitas ) have a rich and unique geological history closely related to volcanic activity. The Hunza water supply is rich in minute particles of glacial clay, and the soils from the water contain an unusually high amount of naturally occuring silver.

As Nobel Prize winning Professor Cairnes-Smith theorized, clay particles are very much associated with the origin of complex cell structures. In fact, hydrated clay may have provided the "blueprint" for the first actual cell membrane.

Sacred lands often have one of the following characteristics:

1. A history of near-surface volcanic activity or unique land formations

2. A highly specialized water and or mineral source; glacial, inter-mountain or ground to surface river sources; filtration mineral hot or warm springs; primary mineral hot springs

3. Areas with rare, often ancient and highly specialized ecosystems

4. Subtle anomalies that may one day be proven to be associated with electromagnetic energy fields producing specialized sonic wave forms; possibly as the result of geothermal activity or an unusually high concentration of monoatomic elements in the environment ( such as the famed bibilical belief in Mount Sinai ).


Observable Anomalies: Perceptions in Nature & Perceptions of Consciousness

To those individuals with a high level of sensitivity to natural energies and a developed connection with nature, there is never any doubt about the value of sacred lands. These individuals can "sense" and "feel" the unique qualities of sacred areas immediately.

This ability actually has been scientifically established. According to research conducted studying the effects of EMF bioelectric shields, and clinical laboratory studies conducted to test the effect of the Schumman Resonance ( with scalar "standing waves" ) on human cell growth, 10%-30% of the human population have a natural sensitivity to even very subtle forms of electromagnetic energy.

Anomolies in Nature

One of the most strikingly beautiful aspects of studying sacred lands is identifying any subtle anomalies that are nearly always present. In many cases, such lands have already been well utilized by indigenous cultures, sometimes as far as 10,000 years in the past. In some cases, such as the sacred caves utilized by Chi Gong Grand Masters in China, the areas are still utilized, and prized both for their rich histories and "energetic qualities".

Anomalies in nature usually have an authentic scientific explanation, as nature conforms to the geometry of natural law. What makes such anomalies significant is either their rarity or the extreme contrast to the surrounding environment.

  "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."

- Jared M. Diamond, Department of Physiology, University of California Medical School, Los Angeles
