Psst! You don’t Have To Eat Clay To Get The Benefits

By Patrick Allard

Think of all the places you and your family have been to in the past 5 years from which you sought some kind of healing:

  • (Hot) Yoga studio
  • Chiropractor
  • Acupuncturist
  • Massage therapist
  • Plastic Surgery/Rejuvenation Clinic
  • Psychologist/Psychotherapist
  • Dentist

The list goes on and on…

Wouldn’t it inspire confidence if your health practitioner cared enough you to surround you with walls that not only were beautiful and soothing, but also contributed to your healing experience? If they already have clay plaster on their walls, then say thank you!

Clay is such a versatile material: You probably already knew that it can be ingested (bentonite clay) for some remarkable healing/detoxifying properties. In fact, traditional use of clay as medicine goes back to prehistoric times.

You probably also knew that clay is one of the oldest building materials on Earth. Between one-half and two-thirds of the world’s population, in traditional societies as well as developed countries, still live or work in a building made with clay as an essential part of its load-bearing structure. It’s a primary ingredient in many natural building techniques, such as adobe, cob, cordwood, and rammed earth.

But did you know that natural clay plastered walls also exhibit properties that are beneficial to your health?
Even zero V.O.C paint can’t make that claim.
