America spends billions of dollars on medications each year, but what if something as simple as all natural bentonite clay was the answer to a cure for a lot of what ails us? I started reading about ingesting Redmond Clay for tummy problems last year, and honestly, I was a bit grossed out. Here's my honest to goodness story, though. I have always had tummy troubles. A lot of it has been cured by eating healthier, but towards the end of last year and early this year, I began having more problems. I tried eliminating things from my diet and I knew I am lactose sensitive, so I was careful with milk products, as always. Nothing helped. I had an appointment with both my primary doctor and then she was stumped, diagnosed it as IBS, but still sent me on to a GI doctor. My primary doctor sat with me for a long time and went over each and every one of my symptoms and actually listened to me. My GI doctor visit was a complete joke. She scheduled me for a stomach ultrasound and a scope, as well. I felt like she was just scheduling these tests to make me happy, but I wasn't happy. Something made me go back and read further about Redmond Clay and I was going to try it as a "last resort." I began mixing up the clay powder with water and drinking it once a day. Within two days, my digestional problems weren't cured, but they were about 80% better. Was it really that simple? Well yes, it was! And Redmond Clay has made it easy if you aren't into tasting the clay. There are clay capsules you can take that are just like taking a daily vitamin!
This is random, but hear me out. Then feel free to offer me some advice, or just tell me I’m crazy.
We have a little kiddie swimming pool in our backyard. I have to get IN with Baby D, so he’s only been three times. ALL THREE TIMES he has gotten sick afterwards. Coincidence? I think not. He goes outside in the backyard without going swimming often. What is it about getting in the water in the pool in the backyard that makes him sick?
Then, two days ago, the Captain, Baby D, and I went swimming. The next day, runnnnnny nose, sneezing, overall grumpiness. This was also the third time Baby D got sick after swimming. So the next day, he felt better, no runny nose, no sneezing. Last night, the Captain went swimming again because he felt better. This morning? YUP! Horrible runny nose, up twice last night, sneezing, grumpiness. AGAIN. But yet, Baby D is just fine. He didn’t go swimming last night.
WHAT.IS.UP with that pool? Did the boys inherit my horrible allergies (I didn’t get sick after “swimming,” mind you). Is there something in the water? Baby D was in there for 15 minutes and didn’t get his hair wet.
This is really, really odd……….but I’m really, really tired of the snot around here.
