Is edible clay a good remedy for constipation?

Might it be good for health for other reasons?

Or might clay be bad for health in some way?

Will it significantly affect stomach acid?

Edit:
I took a couple tablespoons in water yesterday and I had a couple bowel movements today, which is somewhat unusual due to my chronic constipation. I am encouraged, and will keep you posted. I did feel a little sick this morning, so maybe that's a sign that damage has been done? who knows. It seems to affect the mucus in my mouth by making it more solid. If my digestive system is backed up with mucus of some sort, then maybe that would explain why it works for me.

3-5 sprays. I use the swanson brand. Not sure if it really matters though. I think if you applied epsom salt too it would work, since magensium absorbs pretty quickly into the skin.

How much do you use? And is there a brand you like?

I took the couple tablespoons yesterday due to excess stomach acid and it did help with that. It was only afterwards that I realized that it might exacerbate my constipation. It did not make my constipation worse, but rather the opposite. The only downside was that this morning I seemed to have the chills as if I had a fever, but that was only this morning - I feel fine now.

I cannot remember. I have had it for so long as I forgot about it in the back of the cupboard. I remember its being food grade, though.

What brand/variety of clay are you using? Inquiring minds want to know.

i used it for ulcerative colitis. someone i knew had gotten into remission from using the clay and i used it a few times a day mixed with water. i just didn't feel any different. i know the bottle claims it's a heavy detoxifier but i was already having diarrhea and that part didn't change.

What condition did you attempt to alleviate/cure? How did you determine the results were placebo?

i have tried terramin clay for my digestive problems, but i never noticed any benefits from it. it also didn't hurt either. just had a placebo effect. it does have a lot of minerals though so it might be good to take it anyways.

I'm finding that if I spray my waist line with magnesium oil, I have to go around 5 hours later. It will probably act faster with a person with a normal sized colon.

I've used bentonite clay on long fasts with great (cleansing) success :)
