Free E-Book on Living Clay

Posted on December 19th, 2013

Dr. Plechner has released a new e-book titled "How Living Clay Can Help Your Pet Live Better".  You can download the e-book for free here.

Excerpt from the book:

Calcium Montmorillonite clay contains one of the strongest negative ions of all the edible clays available today. This negative ionic charge not only enhances the availability for absorption of foods, vitamins, supplements and glucose but also increases their ability to go through the cell wall into the factory of the cell, which is called mitochondria. This allows the mitochondria to produce more energy and more oxygen for use in the body. Negatively-charged ions can enhance our immune defenses, reduce susceptibility to colds and the flu as well as provide relief from migraine headaches, allergies and hay fever.

Positive ions such as those found in polluted air – of which there are many more in today’s environment than in times past – create an electrical imbalance in the atmosphere and in our bodies. Positive ions are also known as free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells and are thought to be responsible for degenerative health conditions, accelerated aging and even cancer. Positive ions are what comprise toxins, impurities, viruses and pollutants.

Negative ions are beneficial because of their ability to attract and stick to different positive ions or free radicals. This is what makes bentonite clay such a powerful detoxifier. Calcium bentonite clay is highly charged with negative ions and looks to attract positive ions to it when ‘activated’.

Tips and Recommendations


1. Clay can be used for specific treatment of ulcers in show horses. One (1) oz. per feeding is the recommended dosage in their mash or pre-hydrate the clay and add it to their feed.

2. Clay can be used in a Davis Medicine boot. Laminitis is a very common and debilitating problem. Similar to having a concussion, where the swelling has nowhere to expand inside the hoof capsule, subsequently, tissue death & damage incurs, followed by infection and abscessing. A horse cannot stay on boot for pain after about 2 weeks without the risk of developing ulcers, so an integral part of treatment should involve foot soaks. However, instead of using traditional foot soaks (Epsom, apple cider vinegar & water), which takes 20 minutes/hoof and requires the horse to be tied, the combination of clay water, Epsom salt and apple cider vinegar can be used instead. (3oz. of dry clay mixed with 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and 1 tablespoon Epsom, and then enough water to produce a milk shake consistency.)

Clay being a wonderful topical analgesic and anti-inflammatory, immediately brings some relief to the horse and over the course of several treatments every other day multiplied by several weeks, if needed, the horse is greatly improved, if not cured. The Davis medicine boot can be left on for 4-5 hours while the horse is turned loose to graze and be happy, as opposed to the traditional soak, which is at least 20 minutes per foot, requiring a human to stand along side of the horse so he doesn't "kick the bucket" over, per say. The negative ionic charge of the clay will penetrate deeply into the sole, frog and through the permeable hoof wall, killing infection, promoting circulation and providing a topical analgesic affect. I grease the rubber boot with olive oil so I can slip it on and off more easily because there's a slight suction that occurs when removing it.

The slushy clay mixture evenly coats the hoof wall up to the coronet band as he walks while grazing. The treatment will make an abscess to pop more quickly, as well, and when that pressure releases, it provides immediate relief.

3. Clay can also be used as a topical poultice for bowed tendons and swollen legs. There are other clay products commonly used on the race track for this called "Qwik-Relief". The ingredients are clay, Epsom salt, and apple cider vinegar. That's when I got the idea to make my own mixture using a higher quality Living Clay.

I remember when my TN. Walker foundered 2 years ago and couldn't stand for 3 months without the vet doing nerve blocks, I would make him a Living Clay poultice and pack it into his hoof capsules, while he was laying down in the stall and then wrap it with plastic wrap. I did this everyday, in addition to comfrey tea wraps on the coronet band & pasterns, & Chinese herbs from "For Love of The Horse" to control systemic inflammation.

It is said that after the meltdown of the Chernobyl Soviet nuclear power plant in 1986, the Soviet Union put French Green clay in chocolate bars and dispensed them freely to the masses to remove radiation they may have been exposed to.

Whether it was truly French Green clay or Zeolite or Bentonite clay I cannot confirm, but the point is that clay ban be consumed for internal detoxification of radioactive particles because it tends to trap the particles in the gut, which is what has been known to do for centuries.
