• Healing properties of kerosene clay

    Surprisingly, the medicinal properties of kerosene significantly increase the usual clay. Today, unfortunately, the clay-kerosene compound is not sufficiently studied. Although individually there is already a lot of information about each of the components of this pair. The first thing that is known: clay has very strong antibacterial properties - even the ancient Egyptians used it for embalming.


    The physical nature of clay is very simple. These are very small particles of rock, usually layered minerals such as feldspar, caked and impregnated with water and additional salts, under ground pressure formed as

    dense formations having a fibrous, layered and even tubular structure. Mixed with water, the clay becomes plastic, soft and sticky, it can be formed, it can be sculpted, and various products can be obtained.

    It is the size of the particles - the most important property of clay, which determines its healing and healing effects. The fact is that with a very small size, each piece of clay has a huge adsorption surface - from 80 to 800 m2 / g clay, depending on the rock from which clay was formed, that is, the area of ​​particles of one gram of clay dust - from a good apartment to a gardenplot of 8 hectare. On this huge surface, physical and chemical processes are constantly going on to exchange the constituents in the clay itself and exchange clay with the surrounding space. They are based on the whole process of clay.

    Chemically, clay is an aluminum silicate in which some aluminum ions are replaced by other metals. Silicates of iron and magnesium are often found as an impurity. Depending on the number of these "extraneous" ions, the clay exhibits various chemical and physical properties - water saturation, ductility, adsorptive and many other possibilities.

    Depending on which rock is formed from clay and how its further "development" takes place, the clay acquires various properties and can be of different colors. Some metal salts present in the minerals, and then passing into clay, paint it in the colors we are accustomed to. The most common are: the usual yellow clay, clay red, white, blue, green, dark brown and black. If desired, you can distinguish

    many more shades and colors of clay, but these are found most often.

    For the treatment or prevention of diseases, the color of the clay that we use is of great importance. After all, color is an indicator of the content in the clay of certain salts, certain components that can be useful in treating one disease and are contraindicated in another disease.

    The colors of clay indicate the presence of the following salts in it:

    • red - a large amount of potassium, iron;

    • greenish - copper, ferrous iron;

    • blue - cobalt, cadmium;

    • dark brown and black - carbon, iron;

    • yellow - sodium, trivalent iron, sulfur and its salts.

    Based on the color characteristics, the therapeutic effects of clay can be very clearly distributed in certain diseases, since the action of metal salts has long been well studied by official medicine, and they are often used for treatment.

    White clay treats diseases associated with a lack of energy or, conversely, with its overabundance. If there is increased fatigue or excessive nervousness, use white clay.
