It's a shame about the houses, but I love the pictures of the cliff itself. I've googled it and it's red sandstone.

The clay has been giving me headaches & been making me dizzy. So I stopped chewing big chunks & just bite off a small piece from it. I also still then have an headache or get a little dizzy it'll just be for a shorter time period. So I'm taking a break from it. I kinda crave clay but not as bad. But I haven't ate none all day. When the cravings get really bad then ill take that risk but it won't get really bad for a couple of weeks. Just wanted to give y'all an update on things since I haven't said nothing since I received the clay.

Everything in moderation.... As with me in my cornstarch. About to eat some tonight. Was also looking at crayola white chalk the old fashion kind by Binney & Smith. Love eating cornstarch chalk white dirt baby powder...

@ Alexx most of the time headaches means. LEAD in the clay maybe not much but high enough to cause dizzy & headaches .
Your correct you should take a break and flush out your system with plenty of water.

Hi ladies.

Ive been reading and stalking the forum for two years now but I have to share that I also love eating clay. Im a 21 year old female from Cape Town, South Africa. And yes all that is here is sand so one has to go buy the clay from the market. I have a lady I buy mine from, you could say Ive become a regular :):)

There is a youtube video that about people in Johannesburg eating 'mud' which is really clay. So the clay I eat is like the blocks on that video and that clay is taken from Johannesburg and sold in Cape Town. There are manu vendora who sell it so its never in short supply. But I also eat from Zimbabwe i.e clay like the original Mavu clay practically and thats only sold by fewer people but the lady I buy it from never runs out.

She sells othet clays too like salted clay from Ghana but Ive never tries it because I know I would enjoy it. So the clay similar to the Mavu is sold in a packet and its a heavy clay as described by Ms Kenya on youtube in her recent video on sampling the Mavu clay. Its very earthy and I prefer it to the block because even though the blocks are less sticky and less heavy they are harder to digest in truth for my system. The one time before I stopped eating it over a year ago I could pass stools for almost a week and when I did it hurt like crazy I thought that was it Id have to go to hospital but luckily not. Ever since that day I learnt my lesson.

Also the clay I eat now which is like the original Mavu, I buy a packet like once every two to three months and then it will last me about a week or two sometimes I just end up throwing it out because my cravings arent that bad but I still love and enjoy the earthy taste. When I place it on my tongue I feel it start to dissolve and as I slow start to chew and saviour it, I always close my close mu eyes because it is like the smell of the rain when it starts hitting the ground. Heavenly!!

Today Ive gone two months without clay and have been craving it so ill go buy the one like the original Mavu though here you get the more yellow kind just like the Mavu and the more grey kind thats also from Zimbabwe but dug up at a different site. But I buy the yellow kind as I love how it tastes and the grey is way more heavier and stickier. So today Im getting some clay but like I said I usually eat a little bit then throw it oit because I dont want to eat too much even if its a little each day as I used to be addicted to it. Ive always drank about 2 lts of water a day and eat ny five fruit/veggies too. For me raw carrot helps with the cravings when they get intense at timea and I literally refuse to eat clay all the time. Its now something I allow myselc to indulge i. Onxe in every while.
