Medicinal clays may heal ulcers

News in Science – Medicinal clays may heal ulcers – : “Clays have long been used for stomach aches, paper processing, sealing wells and other applications.”

It’s true. Clay has been used for everything in the past but if we find it in our garden , we hate it!!! The truth is , is can be very helpful and if it is being used as a curative for ulcers, that’s a good thing because it is very difficult to dress ulcers and keep them clean. If clay can be used for other tricky open wounds, so much the better. The same can be said of sea mud. I grew up in a little village where they used to come for the black sea mud to help in beauty salons but also in therapeutic treatments of rheumatic illnesses and skin rashes. It certainly worked even if it was black and had a rather pungent odour!
