Learn something new ALMOST every day....

Today it was about clay packs and reducing inflammation and a host of other issues that these clay treatments can be used for. I just happen to have a jar of Aztec Healing Clay that I bought last year when my knee was starting to get really bad and then things went in another direction for me, hospital/rehabs.

Today my integrative MD looked at my knee and yes, she agreed it's swollen and to use either castor oil packs or clay packs...so clay packs it will be starting tomorrow...here's hoping this process will pull out impurities that causing my knee to be so swollen and arthritic.

It's sure easy enough, make a paste of the clay powder and either warm water (not tap) or ACV and I'll use ACV I believe.

The link is very informative.

That was an informative article Jamin and thanks for sharing. I had no idea that clay could do so much. I was wondering how it would work to help my spouse. Periodically, his lower leg turns red and his foot swells. He has trouble walking on it. I've asked him to go to the Dr, but he never does. Just like with your knee, a paste of clay and ACV might bring him some relief.

It certainly can't hurt and there are many other info links on this OLD remedy as well. Mainstream docs would never suggest this. Give it a try and never know, I'm going to and not just one pack...I'll do it for a while..there are many reviews on it too on iherb from those who use mud packs.

Ok, did my first knee mudpack. Learned something, next time will not pack it so thick and keep it on for maybe 15 minutes, it felt good and my knee feels cooler and I'll do it again over the weekend. Used 1 T healing clay and splash of ACV.

Well good luck with that and I hope it will help heal your knee. When you mention healing clay, where do you buy it? It's probably in the local vitamin stores, but I haven't looked yet.

This is the one I happened to buy last year. Many report results for facial packs too.

Thanks for the link! There are lots of different clays for sale and the price is much cheaper than I thought. The Aztec one that you use is a full pound and with using a spoon or two each time, should last for many months.
