So much time, energy and worry is given to how to avoid the unavoidable environmental toxic substances on this earth. While we all need to be conscious and educated as to what we can do to limit our exposure, there is only one sure way to have some kind of peace of mind : strengthen our own immune systems.


It has been estimated that 70% to 80% of our immune system defense lies within the microflora of our gut. This protection is weakened by the constant exposure to the toxic elements that our gut is meant to defend us from. This is job is  compounded because of the exhaustive challenges of the modern world. Other more personal challenges include the health and lifestyles of our parents and ancestors, medical histories, where and how we live and so much more.

After many years of receiving colonics, administering them as a colon therapist, experimenting with cleansing diets, herbal cleanses, Macrobiotic style eating and cleansing, 13 years of experimenting with raw food eating, juicing and juice feasting I have become grateful for the internet and all that it provides. Through the internet I was able to watch some videos that helped provide, what I know and believe, is one of the primary missing links for my healing: bentonite clay.


I plan to write more about bentonite and my experience with the Unique Healing program, but in the meantime I highly suggest watching The Unique Healing Program videos on youtube that explain many of the concepts I have very lightly touched upon here, especially sodium bentonite clay. What bentonite clay does is to harness new toxins that are being absorbed and those stored in our bodies from the past.  Toxins get  loosened up by cleansing diets and sodium bentonite clay absorbs and helps remove them from the body efficiently. I did not experience as profound an  outcome when I used zeolite drops or clay. I also did not come across anyone touting Zeolite clay or drops to specifically heal the upper and lower GI tract.

Sodium bentonite clay helps to absorb and collect toxins, by absorbing acidity, which creates a formed bowel. IBS and other bowel irregularities are due to not enough healthy intestinal flora – healthy bowel bacteria. Without that the body becomes a cesspool, saturated in its own waste products.  This problem is universal and epidemic. The amount of commercials in all forms of media for digestive and gut over the counter drugs speaks volumes.

The detoxifying aspect of sodium bentonite clay is profound. Eliminating toxins creates a feeling of less stress physically and mentally. By absorbing toxins in our bowel, bentonite clay can only help our micro flora replenish themselves and perform more efficiently. This is one aspect of how  sodium bentonite clay is a also a de-stressor. The feeling of relief is one we can all appreciate, understand on some level, or want to experience.

I have written a few posts about Unique Healing recently because I am so grateful to have found something that is so straight forward and makes so much sense. After using natural methods to try to heal my gut for many, many years I have not been able to find long term solutions. I believe the creator of this program, books and videos offers some vital answers. What is really amazing is that you can get a really good feel for whether it is for you or not without initially spending any money. The videos are a great start, and may lead to a minimal expenditure with her two books. At least there is a minimal outlay to figure out whether this is something you may want to investigate further.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
