Clay baths are a gentle way of stimulating your body to release toxins through your skin. It acts similar to a sauna, where you actually sweat toxins out, but it is much gentler and you don't require any expensive equipment. There are two options listed below. If you are chronically ill I would recommend the foot bath first and if that is tolerated then move on to a 10 minute bath working up to the full 20 minute soak.
Using any clay isn't recommended. Since clay absorbs toxins you want to make sure you are using a tested, clean, uncontaminated source. Clay can also absorb other mineral from you system so following your bath with some fresh pressed vegetable juice (carrot, celery, parsley and cucumber is a good source to remineralize) and 1 tsp Mineral O2 and if you need added support add the Medi-Mineral foot soak to replace what was lost. This is the same procedure that you should follow after a sauna.

It is not necessary to dissolve all the crystals. Soak feet for 10 to 20 minutes. Rinse with ice water or as cold of water as you can tolerate. Then towel-dry your feet.
Best used before 8 p.m.
Also best to spend 5 minutes or more outside to receive beneficial solar radiation. However, we realize this is difficult living in the pacific NW.

Your tub with look messy, but rest assured the residual particulates in the bath water may be rinsed down the drain.
Note: For the elderly or very sensitive people, start with 5 to 10 minutes per bath. If you feel weak or faint while in the bath, immediately discontinue the bath.
