Top Benefits of MiraClays for Living Healthy Series
by Dr. Stewart Gillespie*, Osteopath, Functional Medicine, Clinical Nutritionist, Medical Intuitive
Never heard of MiraClays before? Well, then you may be very surprised to hear that it is a “healing clay” that cleanses and heals the body. In fact, many people are enjoying the bentonite clay benefits by taking internally (in other words, drinking and eating it), on top of using externally on the skin.
I have expressed before how an important part of health is not only re-nourishing the body, or putting healing elements in, but also the removal of wastes or toxins whose build up cause inflammation that is the root cause of all disease. Well here is a rich organic product that does both.
MiraClays clay, also called Montmorillonite clay, is taking off as a wellness trend among people who are looking to help “detoxify” their bodies and defend against illnesses. While it’s been used for centuries around the world to promote better health and ward off disease, this healing clay recently gained some spotlight in the US and Europe as a trusted product that can be added to any daily detoxification program.
Montmorillinate Clay Benefits in History
The other name that bentonite clay is typically given, Montmorillonite clay, stems from the region of France called Montmorillon, where the clay was first discovered. Today the clay is harvested mostly in The US, France, and Italy. “Bentonite” is actually the trade name that the clay has been given, but people for the most part speak about Montmorillonite and Bentonite clay interchangeably and are referring to the same product.
Bentonite clay stems back far in history as a traditional healing method for protecting the body from disease. It has been reported that several traditional cultures living in regions of the Andes, Central Africa and Australia have consumed clays in numerous ways for centuries. Because the clay is readily available and required no modern processing, it has been a popular and cost-effective way of “detoxing” the body for quite some time.
How MiraClays Works
We come into contact with a range of toxins numerous times every day, as toxins are given off from common products like paint, cleaning supplies, markers, substances used in building homes, low-quality unpurified water, and even pesticides that are widely sprayed over regions that have farming present. It is quite common to inject a range of different toxins just by breathing in the fumes that are present all around us, not to mention the toxins that we receive from an unhealthy diet filled with low-quality processed foods.
“Heavy metal toxins” usually refer to substances like mercury, cadmium, lead, and benzene. These can be found in the products previously mentioned, and also in foods that contain high fructose corn syrup or certain types of fish. MiraClays benefits your body by helping to expel many of these toxins and therefore increases immunity and reduces inflammation.
On top of being able to draw-out toxins from the body, the clay itself has a range of nutrients. MiraClays is known to have an abundance of 73 minerals including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron, and potassium.
When ingested into the body, either in a drink form or by eating the clay, its vitamins and minerals are absorbed similarly to how a supplement would be. Therefore some people use it as a supplement since the clay is a natural source of important dietary nutrients.
Also MiraClays benefits the body because it has the ability to produce a charge that is electrical in nature when it comes in contact with liquid. When the clay touches any type of fluid (normally water) it takes on a different charge and is thought to bind to any present toxins within the fluid.
While MiraClays naturally has negatively charged electrons intact, most toxins and heavy metals have positively charged electrons. This allows the two to bind together easily and stay united while the toxin removal process happens.
MiraClays essentially “seeks” toxins in the body to bind with because naturally any substance that has a missing ion (which gives it its “charge”) looks for oppositely charged types of substances that will make it complete. Upon binding, the clay is then able to help remove toxins, chemicals, impurities, and “heavy metals” from the gut, skin, and mouth that it is bound to.
If you ever use chia seeds in baking or combine them with any milk or water, you have likely experienced their ability to swell and soak up the fluid that is around them, creating a gel-like consistency. Bentonite clay has a similar ability – it absorbs the liquids that is comes into contact with and expands to extract toxins from the liquid.
MiraClays Benefits and Uses:
1. Purifies Water
MiraClays has been researched as an effective way to remove some of the fluoride and radiation that is often in drinking water. When combined with magnesium, the clay has been shown to benefit the purity of tap water which leads to some promising possibilities for using it in the future as a widespread cost-effective water purification method.
The clay consists of 73 minerals (including mono-atomic elements) that our bodies need to stay healthy. It purifies and nourishes our blood. Healthy blood=Healthy body. The clay has been proven to remove toxins from the body, including radiation and harmful metals while providing our bodies with nutrient rich minerals.
2. RIDS THE BODY OF CELLULITE
Clay has long been used as a topical spa treatment to help the visual effects of cellulite.
Montmorillonite clay is a favorite among beauty specialists due to it’s superior ability to absorb impurities, conduct heat, stimulate blood circulation and tighten pores. Add enough warm water to your MiraClays to make a medium-density paste, smooth it on, let dry and rinse away with cool water. If rinsing in the shower, use a loofah or other exfoliator to stimulate new cell generation. Your cellulite- prone areas will look better immediately.
But don’t stop there. Emerging evidence suggests that the real fight against cellulite must be waged internally. Positively-charged toxins in our bodies tend to pool up in areas where they cause mischief. Cellulite – which isn’t composed merely of fat cells but fields of unhealthy, dehydrated fat cells – has far more toxicity per cell-count than previously thought. MiraClays’ negatively charged particles attract the positively charged toxins and escort them out of the body as waste. In addition, the nanometric minerals in MiraClays are quickly taken up by body, energizing it at the cellular level and stimulating its natural ability to rejuvenate itself.
Customers using MiraClays both internally and externally over a period of just 4 to 6 weeks report dramatic reductions in the appearance of cellulite.
3. Allows Cells to Receive More Oxygen
MiraClays helps to get oxygen into the cells because it has the ability to pull excess hydrogen from the cells, leaving room for oxygen to take its place. When cells have more oxygen entering them, you feel more energized and your body can repair itself more easily from illness or hard workouts.
Poor absorption of the calcium and minerals our bodies need deprives us of the strength-born vitality that we all instinctively know we we’re meant to possess. Hoping to find it by other means, many of us ingest sugars, caffeine, nicotine, or simply too many calories. While mildly successful in the short run, these approaches are chemically unsound and cause the body to work cross-grain against itself. The end result invariably leaves us with even less energy than we had before! Only now, we’ve got an additional drag on our body’s resources due to a weakened immune system! Dumping a high-potency multivitamin into the tank can’t help. Remember: the problem that got everything rolling was not lack of nutrients, but poor absorption. It is not how much you take but how much you absorb!
4. Used on the Skin to Heal Eczema, Dermatitis & Psoriasis
When combined with water and left to dry on the skin as a clay mask, the clay is able to bind to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores to extract these from the pores. This helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes, alleviate redness, and also to fight allergic reactions from irritating lotions or face washes, and even helps poison ivy.
Thanks to the clay’s special ability to act as an antibiotic treatment when applied topically to the skin, the clay can help to calm skin infections and speed up healing time of wounds, even when prescription antibiotics were not able to help solve the problem.
5. Alkalizes the Body
Much of the foods that are present in the “Standard American Diet” have an acidic reaction in the body, meaning they alter the body’s preferred pH level to make it more acidic than we’d like for it to be.
The less healthy someone’s diet is, normally the more acidic their body is. This is the case because the stomach needs to work extra hard to produce strong acids in order to break down these foods, creating the need for even more alkalizing foods to balance things out.
Proper digestion requires enzymes that are made from alkalizing minerals, so when alkalizing foods do not enter the body, acidity remains high and digestion suffers. MiraClays contains alkalizing minerals in contrast, which brings the level of the body’s pH to a more optimal balance between acidity and alkalinity, helping to make the blood, saliva and urine more alkaline.
6. Used in the Bath as a Soaking Liquid to Remove Toxins
The clay can be added to your bath water and used as a soaking liquid, binding to the toxins that are dispelled from your skin.
The clay leaves skin feeling smooth, hydrated, and less inflamed, all while you relax in the tub effortlessly!
7. Boosts Probiotics
By removing toxins, digestive-distress causing chemicals, and heavy metals from the gut, MiraClays helps to promote the “good bacteria” or probiotics living in your gut wall and to decrease the amount of harmful “bad bacteria”.
A healthy gut wall prevents us from experiencing malabsorption of nutrients from our food, increases our immunity, and also helps to elevate our mood and brain function. Research has also shown that MiraClays can bind to particular toxins like “aflatoxins” that are common in the standard diet, found in things like peanuts and some grains.
When left unattended, an influx of aflatoxins can contribute to liver damage and potentially even the onset of certain cancers. Because of bentonite clay’s negatively charged electrons, it is able to withstand acids found in the gut and to survive long enough to bind to toxins.
8. Relieves Digestive Problems (constipation, IBS, nausea, etc.)
Thanks to its ability to neutralize bacteria in the cut and kill viruses, MiraClays clay helps to alleviate many digestive problems. It is often used as relief for nausea and vomiting by pregnant women, is a safe way to remedy constipation, and helps with IBS.
Results from one study carried out in 1998 showed that bentonite clay was extremely successful at absorbing harmful rotavirus and caronavirus toxins within the gut of young mammals. Rotaviruses are one of the leading causes of gastrointestinal distress, such as diarrhea and nausea, in infants and toddlers.
MiraClays benefits your pets as well! It is safe for pet consumption within your own home and can alleviate pet’s nausea and vomiting in the same way. You can add MiraClays to your pet’s water to help reduce symptoms like vomiting. Mix ¼ cup or less of the clay into their water until it dissolves; they should not taste anything or even notice that it’s there, but should feel better pretty quickly.
9. Boosts Immunity by Killing Harmful Bacteria and Viruses:
In a study from Arizona State University, MiraClays was found to be highly effective at killing many types of seriously harmful illnesses, like E. Coli and MRSA for example.
More research is still needed on the topic but results of studies so far appear to be promising in terms of how the clay can be used as a treatment for these serious illnesses. On top of killing these types of infections and viruses, MiraClays benefits your immune system by keeping the gut wall strong.
Much of the immune system actually lives inside of the gut, and when the gut wall is compromised, toxins are better able to leach into the blood stream and cause serious problems. By protecting the gut wall and decreasing the amount of pesticides, toxins, bacteria, and chemicals that could potentially enter the blood, the body is better able to protect its health.
10. Improves the Health of Teeth and Gums
The mouth is one of the most susceptible areas of the body when it comes to harmful outside “invaders” taking over, like bacteria and toxins.
MiraClays binds to unhealthy substances in the mouth, such as around the teeth and on the tongue and gums, and helps to remove them before you swallow them and become sick. Because of MiraClays’ anti-bacterial properties it has been used in natural toothpastes and even mixed with water and used as a daily rinse.
11. Useful As a Baby Powder Alternative
MiraClays can be applied to any area on the skin of babies that is irritated, red, or needs soothing in the same way that traditional powders are used. Plus, it is very gentle and naturally cleansing.
Apply a small amount of the clay directly to the skin and allow it to sit for several minutes before wiping/rinsing it away
and more applications Topically/Externally:
Mix with a little water, MiraClays in paste form makes an excellent poultice that pulls toxins out of the skin while calming the nerves and stimulating the healthful flow of blood to the treatment area.
MiraClays poultices have shown to be effective in treating:
– Facial acne
– Under eye bags
– General skin toning and detoxifying
– Skin lacerations and insect bites
– Piercing infections on earlobes and other sites
– Sore or strained muscles
Systemically/Internally: Our customers rave over the effectiveness a spoonful mixed into beverages has, on a wide array of complaints affecting their appearance, including:
– Circles under the eyes
– Cold sores
– Ingrown toenails
– Acne flair ups
– Eye clarity and color
– Frail fingernails
– Dull, thinning hair
– Absorbing Toxins including harmful radiation and metals
– Calcium and Mineral Supplementation
– Weight Loss
– Beauty Remedy
– Aid Longevity
– Health Maintenance of Animals
RENEW ENERGY AND VITALITY
Poor absorption of the calcium and minerals our bodies need deprives us of the strength-born vitality that we all instinctively know we we’re meant to possess. Hoping to find it by other means, many of us ingest sugars, caffeine, nicotine, or simply too many calories. While mildly successful in the short run, these approaches are chemically unsound and cause the body to work cross-grain against itself. The end result invariably leaves us with even less energy than we had before! Only now, we’ve got an additional drag on our body’s resources due to a weakened immune system! Dumping a high-potency multivitamin into the tank can’t help. Remember: the problem that got everything rolling was not lack of nutrients, but poor absorption.
How to Effectively Start Using MiraClays
MiraClays normally comes in a gray or cream color, not a bright white color which can indicate that it may have gone bad. The clay should also be odorless and not have much of any taste at all.
If you plan on consuming MiraClays by mouth (ingesting it either by eating or drinking the clay), try this:
Drink 1/2 to 1 teaspoon once per day as many days of the week as you’d like. Mix the clay with water, preferably in a jar with a lid where you can shake the clay and make it dissolve. Then drink it right away.
If you plan on only using it externally on your skin, try this:
Enjoy the MiraClays benefits by adding a ¼ of a cup of the clay to your bath and massage your skin with it. Or just allow the clay to dissolve into the water and soak in it for as long as you’d like, then rinse your skin well with clean water.
Try gargling the clay in your mouth with some water for 30 seconds to 1 minute, similarly to using mouth wash. Then spit out the clay and rinse your mouth with clean water.
Try creating a face mask by smearing the clay directly onto your skin, especially anywhere where you have blemishes, red spots, irritations, or scarring. Allow the clay to dry (this usually takes about 20 minutes) and then rinse it off with warm water. It’s recommended to use the clay masks one or twice per week for best results.
For scrapes or bug bites, apply a concentrated amount of the clay directly to the trouble area and cover with a Band-Aid or gauze, then let it sit for about 2 hours, then rinse it off.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive and safe way to help rid toxins from your body, consider trying MiraClays in one of its many uses. Whether you are looking to clear skin irritations or undergo a more dramatic internal detox, experiment with this traditional and completely natural method of healing that has been practiced for hundreds of years.

Monoatomic gold is a truly exotic substance. Highly-valued by ancient cultures for its “mystical properties” and “magical powers”, it is now re-emerging in modern times, seemingly, just as mankind needs it. Monatomic gold has been used throughout history to heal, encourage spiritual growth and enlightenment and even affect “gravity, space and time”. Monatomic Gold is proving to be quite literally a unique “gift from the gods” that we are rediscovering in this time of spiritual need.
Modern science is confirming the knowledge of our Ancestors: Monatomic Gold or “the Philosophers Stone” has literally been worshipped throughout history for it’s “unbelievable” powers. That’s only to say unbelievable because until recently, science has not been able to determine what it actually did. Today, research is confirming the advanced understanding of monatomic elements that cultures such as the Egyptians had thousands of years ago. Ancient texts have shown that the Pharaohs were fed “sho-bread” containing Monatomic Gold as they were considered worthy of the spiritual enlightenment, heightened awareness and increased life span it was reputed to deliver. It was considered too important to be given to “ordinary” humans. Ancient “priestly scientists” were well-aware of the enhancements monatomic elements made to the human body and DNA as well as helping transcend the spirit to a higher state of evolution. The Sumerians recorded that the gods, or the Annunaki as they called them, came down from heaven and seeded mankind. A few selected humans were chosen to rule the rest as the “representatives” of the gods and were fed monatonic gold (also called Starfire) which made them more intelligent and able to rule the workers.
P.S.: I personally believe it was the Gold delivered to Jesus along with Myrrh and Frankincense.
