Q&A: Can I use Sacred Clay or Mineral Manna as a tooth powder and to cleanse my whole mouth? Would it also be safe to swallow the clays?
Both Sacred Clay and Mineral Manna make an excellent alternative to tooth paste if used lightly or occasionally. It may also serve as a tooth cleaner & whitener where surface stains are involved. Mineral Manna contains 4 earthen mineral sources (including Sacred Clay) plus Himalayan Salt, so it provides added qualities to a brushing or swishing experience.
While either can be swallowed following a brushing, if brushing (or swishing) takes any length of time, it may be wiser let the toxins or germs be carried away down the drain rather than process the combination of clay and mouth contents through the elimination channels.
Since the clay bonds inseparably with toxins (and you are already swallowing your saliva with the same toxins), the clay would only improve on this pre-existing state if swallowed, though the cost is so small for a sprinkle of clay, it makes sense to simply discard the debris as an effective detox measure.
A light brushing is a minor event and would likely be similar to drinking clay water if the clay were consumed, but a mouth swish of 1-5 minutes with the clay would hold enough toxins from deeper layers so that I would prefer to let that go down the drain.
The Abrasive Nature of the Clay
Be aware that due to the clay’s abrasive nature, if brushed hard on the surface of the teeth it can reduce the enamel similar to a teeth cleaning at the dentist. Excessively hard brushing with the clay should be avoided, as light brushing is typically all it takes to be effective.
Stain Removal – Teeth Whitening
Sacred Clay will remove some surface stains but not discolorations deeper in the teeth (due to fluoride in the water or antibiotics while growing up, both of which weaken teeth structure).
Where the brushing is unable to reach, like deep in the crevices of the teeth, the clay and a toothbrush is not as effective at removing the stains. Such a task is better suited for a dentist who has sharper grinding instruments.
Coffee and tea stains tend to lighten up or disappear even with a single brushing with Sacred Clay or Mineral Manna.
Mouth swishing alone does not remove many stains, but does provide a soothing, strengthening effect on the gums and a cleansing of bacteria from the mouth.
Mouth swishes with the clay are entirely safe on the enamel and very cleansing of the whole body when used similar to the “oil pulling” method.
Mouth swishing protocol is as follows:
Add one teaspoon of Sacred Clay or Mineral Manna to 4-8 ounces of water. Swirl or stir and take about 1 tablespoon of the liquid into your mouth. Swish for 1-5 minutes then spit out the residue. Repeat, if desired, two to five times for a deeper cleanse. May be performed daily. Can serve as an excellent preventative program to draw toxins from the teeth and roots before they degenerate into a state of inflammation.
Be advised, that in most cases the prime trigger for tooth inflammations are sugar, breads, nuts, bananas and alcohol resulting in a candida overgrowth condition and a weakening of the immune response mechanisms within the spleen.
Mouth swishes and the internal use of Sacred Clay act to bolster immune capabilities of the body.
If the Sacred Clay Darkens Your Teeth at First
For a small percentage of people whose teeth are more porous due to weakened enamel, the pores of the teeth will naturally trap toxins and bacteria. Sacred Clay will be drawn to these pores which may result in an initial darkening of the teeth or crevices. This darkening effect for some is a testament to the powerful action the Sacred Clay has on toxins.
If this is noticed, it is recommended to brush with Ancient Mineral Blend instead of Sacred Clay in order to clean the teeth of stains, and discontinue the brushing and swishing with Sacred Clay for a few months, during which a mineral-rich building program to restrengthen enamel is advised.
Such a protocol would include the Clay Water Mineral Drink program coupled with Earth & Sea Greens and other herbal system builders (along with an improved diet of course) to rebuild your tooth enamel. This may take several months, after which the Sacred Clay will no longer cause this darkening effect. Brushing or swishing with the clay may then be tested once again and continued if the repair has proven successful.
Consuming Clay to Assist in the Rebuilding of Enamel
If the clay is consumed regularly for nutritional purposes, in capsules, the minerals in the clay will provide the building blocks to rebuild enamel over time (providing, of course, that the diet is supportive of general good health - "OK, So What Foods CAN I Eat?").
Draw Out Mercury Vapors with Sacred Clay Mouth Swishes
Due to the abundance of minerals available for bonding with heavy metals, Sacred Clay mouth swishes assist in drawing out mercury vapors which have escaped from your tooth fillings over decades of chewing food or gum.
Mercury vapors are also released in extreme amounts during amalgam filling removal – even if the removal process is performed in the safest way possible. I have spoken with many clients with severe chronic health problems who, upon questioning, can trace the beginning of their health problems back to when they removed their amalgam fillings – with a conscious dentist.
A complete program for cleansing mercury vapors from the body involves the ongoing use of Sacred Clay for clay baths, mouth swishes, clay packs on the head, face and neck and internally coupled with the Earth & Sea Greens and other system builder formulas to further enhance the detoxification effectiveness.
In summary, Sacred Clay and Mineral Manna provide an excellent tooth care program when used with both caution and regularity.
Many blessings of health & success.
