Hi, first, people NEED to know that you do NOT take Sodium Bentonite Clay Internally, you only take Calcium Bentonite Clay internally. Second, when your body goes through a detox you WILL get tired, the clay is flushing out the toxins in your body that you get from what you eat or drink, the air we breath, the cleaners we use etc. Until you get on the other side of that detox you will be exhausted. You will also have more energy after you detox, clean out your intestines and your blood etc. You NEED to drink PLENTY of water every day but especially when you detox or take Calcium Bentonite Clay internally, that's one reason you can't have a bowel movement or don't have regular ones. Our bodies are 75% water, that water NEEDS to be replaced on a daily basis, if you don't where are the toxins going to go, how will you flush them out and how will you keep your bowels moving... think about it :)

Bentonite clay will remove "EVERYTHING" from your body. Our doctor suggested that my husband (at the time) use this to detox from smoking marijuana, because he had to be tested. I know, stupid move on his part!! Anyway, it worked. BUT, it will make you EXHAUSTED, and you have to take a multivitamin TWICE A DAY with it. The biggest thing is to DO YOUR HOMEWORK before trying something that someone just happened to suggest on a Web site. This is all anecdotal. It "may" work for you, but you have to read other information, too!!

I noticed a couple of warnings from users that were using Bentonite clay & Psyllium. Psyllium has been safe for me; however I cannot understand why anyone would use Bentonite clay to cleanse your intestinal tract. For years when I lived in Texas, we used Bentonite clay to seal ponds so they would not leak (it swells and seals and lasts for years). I can only imagine what that stuff would do to your intestinal tract. So I suspect the negative feedback is more on Bentonite clay and not psyllium.

I used bentonite for an intestinal cleanse. It worked well; however, I developed an allergy to psyllium, which is a common allergen. I got very bad hives. I had to change the fiber. Using fiber is very important with this clay. This is a magnetic clay, and it did take some pain away, also. I would definitely recommend using another type of fiber - I used wheat germ, even oatmeal, whatever I could find.

I digested Psyllium and Bentonite clay for a colon cleanse. This was to ruin my whole life and caused immediate gastritis and triggered rosacea/rhinophyma. The onset of syptoms were abrum, immediate and extremely severe. I now have blepharitis and meibominaitis as a result. I was very stupid and digesting this product has ruined my whole life. DO NOT TAKE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
