i felt like finishing it too but i had to control myself. you said your mum stoped because of an op, was it because of clay. if so can you explain how it had affected her and how much she was eating so that we dont do the same thing. the problem with such nice clay is that you cant put it down, will run to the car now and have some i brought it to the office but i dont want anyone seeing me.

A lot of people say your clay is good but I've been scared to order. Because shipping is high and people have said its doing things to them. But the one thing I need to know is because u eat it also do u have gas or rest room problems? And how is weight gain?
any white clay makes me itch. I think its just me. Any white clay makes me regulated. Drink lots of water

Hi Mary, sorry I can't help you with your question but I know what you mean. It is very expensive to ship to me too, so I have been very nervous about ordering - so many clays I want to try, but don't want to waste my money by being disappointed and ending up with clay I don't like. I hope Mavuseller or Leslie or somebody finds a good source of clean red clay...I wouldn't hesitate in trying that and hope I like it.(I have a serious craving to try some red, and things like unprocessed odowa and Tanzanian soil cake).
