What is it?
LL's MAGNETIC CLAY is a very fine, mineral-rich, clay called [Sodium] Bentonite in its pure form without harmful, commercial emulsifiers. There are over 200 different kinds of Bentonite clay and many of them have a variety of uses and results. Most of them have 15% to 75% aluminum in it. LL’s Magnetic Clay has tremendous pulling power due to its high negative (good) charge. We have tested and researched many different clays from around the world and found none that compare with our clay for removal of chemical and metal toxicity. The clay is mixed with a unique blend of herbs, spices, and special ingredients to enhance the detoxification of the body of various dangerous environmental poisons. Different formulas of the LL's MAGNETIC CLAY are specifically aimed at particular detox programs, such as one for environmental and chemical pollutants. One bath rids years of accumulated toxic chemicals and metals in your body.
How Does it Work?
Bentonite clay is a highly adsorbent substance. Unlike absorption, in which fluid permeates or is dissolved by a substance, adsorption is the adhesion of ions, atoms or molecules to a surface. In this case, the surface energy of the bentonite clay is what draws specific toxins (adsorbates) to it as if they were "pulled by a magnetic field".
The skin's function is as a pathway rather than a barrier, and is one of the primary organs of the body utilized for detoxification. While submersed in a tub of very warm water mixed with the bentonite clay, the high adsorbency draws bio-accumulated toxins from within the body, which then adhere to the surface of the clay.
How Often Should I Take LL's MAGNETIC CLAY Detox Baths?
It is suggested a series of three or six baths in the beginning, spacing them a week or two apart depending upon the user's health status. Thereafter, do a `spring cleaning' detox bath and an `autumn cleaning' detox bath to keep the metals and chemicals out! However, toxic substances absorbed over many years may be stored deep in the tissues. For these more entrenched toxic conditions, a more rigorous and long term plan to detoxify the body may be necessary. A hair or stool analysis can be used to determine the extent of the bio-accumulation, and other products can be used to aid in the detoxification process.
How do I Prepare for the Bath?
It is helpful, but not necessary, to eat a cleansing diet with fresh, organic fruits and vegetables and herbal cleansing teas several weeks prior to the bath. Also, you can boost your immune system with `green foods' such as Chlorella (some chlorellas have mercury in them so be careful), spirulina, blue-green algae, or micro clusters. It is very helpful to get one's pH to a normal range of 7.0 to 7.4 as studies show the "dumping process" of toxins releasing from the body is greater, quicker, and more efficient when at the normal level. So if one wants to "speed up" the process of releasing toxins, keep the pH at 7.0 to 7.4 which is considered normal levels.
Can I use the Clay in Ordinary Bathtubs?
Yes. By using a `hair trap' or `sink strainer guard' to prevent drain clogging and by taping it with duct tape or plumber's tape to ensure safety from going down the drain. The kits do have a fiberglass screen and flat drain plug included, as well as an instruction pamphlet with details on protecting your drain.
If you have a small bathtub and cannot get completely immersed in water up to your neck, during the clay bath, then turn on your side for ten minutes and then the other side for the other ten minutes.
For those of you on a septic system, it is not advised that you use more than 2 cups of clay per bath.
How do I Know that LL's MAGNETIC CLAY BATH is Working for Me?
The clay that settles to the bottom of the tub during the bath has adsorbed the impurities and toxins drawn from the body (as well as those in the water). This clay may appear darker than the rest, even black. The color of the water in the tub may also change. Even if the color does not change, toxins are still being pulled out. You may experience a feeling of physical or emotional relief, headache, fatigue, or a general sensation of `lightness' after the bath. A symptom of nausea, or a `pulling' effect from the stomach or other areas indicates toxins moving. All of these are normal reactions.
Of course, testing can be done by laboratories, before and after the bath. We feel that the fecal/stool test is the most accurate and can be ordered through Direct Laboratories or your doctor through Doctor's Data. Contact us for sources for having this done.
Is LL's MAGNETIC CLAY DETOX BATHS Good For Everyone?
It is recommended that anyone with a heart condition, high blood pressure, pregnant/breastfeeding women, and anyone taking prescription medications or any medical situation, should postpone the bath and check with your doctor or certified therapist. It may be acceptable to take a clay 'pack' instead of the bath or a clay 'foot bath'. Although these are not as effective as a full tub bath, they work more slowly and gently. Foot baths can be done more often though, usually every 2 to 3 days. These baths also have had great success with children. See our instructions section and the Children's Guidelines. Also see testimonials about children.
What Follow-up is Recommended After the Bath?
Some minerals, vitamins, and electrolytes are also removed in the bath and need to be replaced immediately. It is recommended to take a 'green superfood' product containing spirulina, blue-green algae, chlorella, wheatgrass or similar nutrients as they have the majority of vitamins, minerals, strengthening your immune system. Although it contains sugars, coconut water is mineral-rich and makes for a good base for green superfood powders. We also recommend juicing spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro and other dark, leafy greens.

Does the Clay have Other Uses?
Bentonite clay is used for clay packs. Mixed with water, it can help draw out infection, reduce the swelling of insect bites, promote the healing of wounds, and reduce pain, and can be used effectively for burns.

Why is LL's Clay Baths so different than other clays?
Our detox clay formulas are different for several reasons: a) most other Bentonite clays have 67% to 75% aluminum in them! b) most other Bentonite clays have emulsifiers in them to make them mix smoothly which contain chemicals! c) our clay formulas are synergistically tested to work together, and d) they work better because of the strong "pulling power" of this particular kind of Bentonite (there are over 200 kinds of Bentonite and they vary dramatically in use and in analysis).
