Dental Pockets, Gingivitis and Periodontal Issues
When I was told I had deep pockets in my gum line four years ago (the beginning of
gingivitis), I immediately gave up toothpaste and started brushing my teeth with Red
Desert® Edible Clay powder. My next dental exam revealed all pockets were gone
and healthy gum tissue was restored. There was very little for the hygienist to do
except her normal cleaning and removal of some tea stains.
Dosage: Take approximately one tsp or so of this very specific
Red Desert® Edible clay, add a few drops of water to make thick
mud (peanut butter consistency), floss your teeth and brush. You
can just swallow the clay for additional internal detoxification and
re-mineralization of the body.
What happens when brushing with Red Desert® Edible Clay is that the tiny, tiny
particles (most are two to three microns in size) will bind to the unfriendly bacteria in
the gum line and remove it.

Infection in the Gums
Sometimes when an infection in the gum or tooth area will not heal, the Red Desert®
Edible Clay powder can be applied several times a day directly to the infected area.
Just add a little water to a teaspoon of clay powder, making thick mud and apply. Let the clay
sit for a few minutes or so while it binds to the unfriendly bacteria. In a few
minutes it will naturally mix with your saliva. That is all there is to do. It is okay to
swallow the clay after that. Try this for two days and see if the infection has cleared.
My Cat has Periodontal disease can I use this clay for her?
Absolutely. Here is a testimony posted on our facebook page.
"My cat had an infection in her mouth due to periodontal disease. After having many teeth
extracted and the remaining teeth cleaned, I was instructed to bring her back regularly for deep
cleaning. Instead I made thick mud with the Red Desert clay and gently brushed her gums and few
times a week. Within a couple of weeks her gums were much healthier and she has very good
breath. No more gels, no more creams, no more antibiotics, no more invasive cleanings! I also
made a mud mask to massage into her lips and chin and her blackheads were 50% extracted by the
next morning!" Tiffany B., S California
What is Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease?
Inflammation of the gums, sometimes termed gingivitis is related to unfriendly
bacteria around the gum line which is a mild form of gum disease that can be
reversed. When gingivitis is not treated it leads to periodontal disease where the
long standing bacteria affects the bones, gum and tissue that supports the gum.
Sometimes it is so severe that the teeth are extracted.
Contradictions with Red Desert Clay
There are not really any contradictions that we know about, however if you are
taking certain medications ask your pharmacist if the clay will interfere. The book
The Clay Cure
mentions taking medications two or three hours before or after eating
clay, but check with your doctor to be sure. For those taking antibiotics it is
best not to eat the clay while on the antibiotics, as the tiny particles of clay will naturally move into the bloodstream
to remove toxins but will probably slow down the absorption of the antibiotics. Once
you have completed your round of antibiotics then consider resuming with eating
the clay. Be sure to speak to your doctor or dentist about taking
probiotics or prebiotics
for six weeks or so to replenish the beneficial flora removed
during the antibiotic regime. Many affected with
in the body have arrived at this situation from continual use of antibiotics.
After discovering the negative effects of fluoride in the body and considering we
have enough toxins in our environment to contend with, I have avoided fluoride for
about 30 years. When my children were growing up I would not allow them to be
given fluoride tablets either. Fluoride is a chemical poison which increases in its
