Autism and mercury poisoning has recently been linked as a possible cause of autism due to the large quantity of mercury found during urine testing of autistic children. Since one of the biggest benefits of a clay bath is the removal of heavy metals such as mercury and lead through the pores of one's skin, there is definite hope that clay baths can play an increasingly bigger role in treating autistic patients. In the recent past, autistic children who have been taking clay baths on a regular basis for some time, have reported amazing improvement. How is this possible? Keep reading.
If you know little about calcium bentonite clay baths, understand that a clay bath treatment gets its results from its incredible ability to absorb toxins that are excreted through the pores of the skin. In fact, one clay bath can actually release years of toxic pollutants such as mercury and other metals out of your body and into the bath tub. A lot of stress is placed on the body when taking oral chelators for the removal of metal toxins. Jason Eaton, an expert on clay baths, recommends clay baths for detoxing and chelation. Clay baths can safely be used to remove metal toxins, treat radiation, chemical, and pesticide exposure.
Dr. Miriam Jang, M.D., says: "I have put a huge number of patients on these clay baths and the level of heavy metals--mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, and cadmium have come down dramatically. I have been monitoring the levels of metals using all three methods (TD DMPS, oral DMSA, & clay baths) and the clay baths are way faster in the removal of metals. One particular patient had very high levels of mercury and levels of lead that were off the charts. In 3 months of twice weekly clay baths, the lead came down dramatically and the mercury disappeared."
Bear in mind that clay baths are extremely safe to take for the purpose of removing heavy metals. It's much faster than other more popular chelators, and cheaper as well. It's important to follow the instructions on how to properly prepare a clay bath in order to experience best results. It's recommended to take a good multi mineral formula when bathing in clay. But remember not all clays are the same in quality. A clay that has additives may not have a strong drawing effect as one without additives. So using a weak clay to bath in would do you little good in chelating heavy metals. You want a high quality raw clay in order for a patient to experience positive results.
