Bentonite, Nature's alternative to Antibiotics

Bentonite detoxifies the body and is an alternative to antibiotics for many conditions

Bentonite is one of the products that I discovered in 1977 that changed my life; read about it and see if it could be something to keep in your pantry too!! Sonne makes the same hydrated Bentonite; some places carry Sonne, some carry VE Irons.......

I first heard about this amazing detoxifer in 1977 during the intermission of a meeting at the Tharp's home in Albq., NM. A man was talking about his experience --- he had a terrible pain in his side for 2 weeks, but knew it would get better if he just kept on taking bentonite. When it was not getting better, his wife insisted he go to the doctor....... he had a burst appendix for those 2 weeks.

I knew I needed to get some that very night! I have used it consistently since then, on all horses, dogs, cats and humans, with fabulous success!!

It's excellent to detoxify the body; It has a ''negative charge'' which seems to be able to attract viruses and bacterias and other foreign invaders, and eliminate them.

Most every year for the past 32 years I have done a great 7-day Cleansing Program, excellent for health!! You can read the instructions Here, but I would recommend the following supplements be substituted---they have proven to be the very purest, from the finest raw materials...Vitamin E instead of wheat germ oil; MultiVitamin/Mineral for greenlife; Vitamin C for the #17 C; Alfalfa for the beet powder; Herbs and Liver Detoxing Tabs for the evening herbal supplement. AND Immune Support for general wellness & immune boosting.

Here are the components to my cleansing program, all set out and ready to do their job, giving my body a good scrubbing!



1 ½ Hours after taking the Whole Food Supplements, take a Cleansing Drink. Repeat throughout the day. Remember to take 2 tablets of Herbal Supplement each night with last Cleansing Drink and drink plenty of water.

The results of this Cleansing Program will be dramatically enhanced when you use daily colon irrigation. Try to have 6-14 enemas or colonics during the 7 Day Cleansing Program.

A sample schedule might be as follows:

7:00 am – Cleansing Drink
8:30 am – Supplements
10:00 am – Cleansing Drink
11:30 am – Supplements
1:00 pm – Cleansing Drink
2:30 pm – Supplements
4:00 pm – Cleansing Drink
5:30 pm – Supplements

Over 150 lbs.

7:00 pm – Cleansing Drink
8:30 pm – Supplements

If your weight is under 150 lbs., you should take each 4 times per day – 1 ½ hours apart

If your weight is over 150 lbs., you should take each 5 times per day – 1 ½ hours apart


Bentonite detoxifies the body and is an alternative to antibiotics for many conditions The Powdered form is also something we have been using for, especially, horses with runny noses, infections, viruses etc. We put 1/2 teaspoon over their morning food. The liquid in the bottle is the perfect suspension, and we are trying to somewhat simulate this with the powder, which is much easier to order.....

For some technical details about Bentonite here is an excellent website!

We also use Liver Detox. Our largest -- and one of our most important organs-- processes the toxins our body creates and consumes. It's a dangerous and demanding job that helps explain why the liver's one of the most frequently injured organs. With the plethora of toxins in our air, our water, and our food, our amazing livers need extra help!

Daddy would have loved Bentonite; it detoxifies the body and is an alternative to antibiotics for many conditions. Daddy was very much opposed to his fellow MDs using ''wonder drugs'' way too often! CONTACT ME HERE
