I have gallstones, and diverticulosis. Can I use liquid bentonite clay as a detox. Will it help or make my symptoms worse?
Where to begin?: Symptoms of? Gallstones causing symptoms really are best treated by surgical removal of the gallbladder. No matter what you do- over time the symptoms will worsen. Symptoms from diverticuli usually means inflammation and once these show up more than once, you are eventually going to need surgical care.

Is it safe to take bentonite clay while on Zoloft (sertraline) if I take them several hours apart?

Supposing that charcoal or bentonite clay work for brown recluse bites, why aren't they used in the hospitals?
Who says it works?: The only way to really know if a treatment works or not is to test it against a standard treatment in such a way that neither the patient nor the doctor knows which treatment is being used. For treatments to work on brown recluse bites, they have to be started before the bitten tissue dies. Most people don't even know they have been bitten until then and so come to the hospital late. ...Read more

Maybe blend it in skim milk. And I usually recommend adding some psyllium husk to get back some of the fiber benefit. ...Read more
Nobody knows: There are zero studies of e-cigs, and nobody knows what they will do, even with no nicotine. Nicotine is not the cause of cancer anyway - it is the complex hydrocarbons (tars) in the smoke. It is likely that e-cigs will prove safer than smoked cigarettes, but again, nobody really knows. The propellant in these gadgets is propylene glycol, and nobody knows what inhaling them, or the oils, will do. ...Read more
