Gout Clay Therapy

Clay is applied as a gout treatment, to the legs and feet, covered by banana leaves to keep the moisture inside the clay.

Red Clay Gout Therapy


Red clay has an abundance of beneficial microbes and fungi and is reported to be useful for detoxing (adsorbing heavy metals & pathogens) and lowering uric acid. 

We prepare the clay for poultice by adding agents like activated charcoal, raw coconut oil, and glycerine.

After applying the mixture to the chosen area, we use Hierba Santa leaves (a potent anti-inflammatory), or banana leaves, to cover the clay and keep it moisturized. This is important because once the clay dries up, it is losing its electrical conductivity and its ability to exchange ions.

Black Clay Gout Therapy

Another local clay variety we use is the Black Oaxacan Clay, well known for its black pottery.

We use it pure or mixed with aloe vera, and glycerine.
