Luxolite - seeking info

LJ's chiropractor wants her to take Luxolite (100% pure white bentonite clay). Anyone use this? LJ has digestive issues.

Re: Luxolite - seeking info

Hm. I can only comment on Bentonite Clay (?) We use Bentonite Clay in the concrete industry as a concrete pump primer (it slicks the inside of concrete pump truck lines to prevent clogs and allow concrete to move easier through the system). It is generally not used in structural concrete as it rises to the top of the concrete and does not mix with the concrete.

I don't know how this would assist with digestion issues in a dog besides "slicking the lines," but I'm open to hear someone else's opinion on it that have used it before/know more than I do. (I just read something online that the clay acts as a magnet to attract toxins though.)

(Kind of like "Alpha Hydroxy" - found in high-dollar age-defying skin cream - is another term for a type of acid used to remove concrete off of tools and trucks)

Re: Luxolite - seeking info

It doesn't sound very appetizing. She did describe it as "coating" the intestines.

Here's a link

Re: Luxolite - seeking info

I tried that for Indy once. It was part of a two part thing, it was probably a decade ago. I know nothing bad came of it, but I don't remember anything stellar, either. She was real messed up at the time though. I remember something about the process was difficult (if you waited it gel-ified or something like that), but I don't remember if it was the clay, or the other part that I also can't remember!

I did think of trying it again years later, but never did.

I always thought of it more as drawing bad stuff out rather than coating the intestines. I also think that for long term use, it can pull out minerals and such, but I'm pretty iffy on my knowledge base here!

ETA: here is the one that I was told to use: http://www.sonnes.com/products_line_7.html

She wants to detoxify LJ's liver and gall bladder. I think its a 6 week thing.

Especially after spending $130 on liquid clay.

Or I could just turn it into magic dust and make a profit.
