    I have been diagnosed with Mycobacterium Absessus in my right lung.
    Currently at home with PICC Line taking 5 doses of antibiotics per day. Premaxin and Cefoxitin every 12 hours; Tygacil every 24 hours.

    My interest is in the compress, drawing power of clay and the possibility of a practitioner that would be willing to assist in drawing this Absessus out of my lung.

    Wow. So sorry to hear this, Louis!

    There is a Yahoo Group called "AboutClay." They might have some ideas for you.

    Based on what I have been learning, and if it were me, I would take calcium bentonite clay internally and do compresses, but that is only me. In addition, I would be seeking a homeopathic healer and an Oriental medicine doctor. That is what only I would do and I can't recommend anything for anyone else, as each person takes their own journey.

    Wishing you fast healing!

    I was wondering if all the hype around colon cleanse are true or a bunch of crap
    (no pun intended)? Has anyone ever tried this and does it really work in making you feel
    better and to lose weight? Is it better to go through a
    doctor and have a professional one done or does over the counter
    remedies work just as fine? Looking for answers from people with
    actual experience of this. Thanks!!.

    Hi Laura,

    I came across your site from your signature on a recent post on the "AboutClay" Yahoo Group. I searched 'bentonite' on your weblog and see that your family are taking Living Clay Calcium Bentonite Clay. I very glad for you that clay seems to be having a positive benefit. It's now December, are your family still taking Calcium Bentonite Clay?

    I had hay fever and eczema very bad since I was a child and then I started taking Calcium Bentonite Clay (bathing and taking internally). My eczema has now cleared up and my hay fever has completely gone.

    I would just like to point out something about this post. In the chemical analysis data sheet of 'Living Clay' it states 'Aluminium Oxide' (AI2O3) at 6.85% not Aluminium (AI). 'Aluminium Oxide', or 'alumina oxide', is inert (safe) and cannot be absorbed into the body.

    Thank you for your comment, Samantha! I have corrected the Aluminum reference. We don't use the clay internally regularly, but I will look put my son back on it when seasonal allergies flare. Thank you for the inspiration!

    Have you tried stinging nettle. It has helped my wife last spring. We brew a good tea. We were able to find it growing and skipped the health food store. Works great and tastes good. Check it out.

    Thank you, Al. We haven't, but we have had some major new food understandings and he is great now. Without wheat, rice or corn he breathes just fine. Yay!
