I eat really really small chalks every other day. I only eat one chunk . Every other day to avoid headaches and dizziness . Only way to satisfy my cravings and avoid headaches and dizziness . It's a lot . But I can't help the cravings .
Alexx are you eating chalk now, or did you mean to say clay because you had told us before that the clay was causing headaches and dizziness?

No matter what, please be careful. I know all about cravings, and have certainly eaten/chewed my share of stuff that I know isn't good in those amounts, but I would like to think that if I was sure that something was giving me headaches and making me dizzy I would be able to resist it. As someone has mentioned, that may be because there is lead present. Or maybe it could be that you have some sort of sensitivity to it?

Again Alexx, please be safe.

I meant to say chunks instead of chalk . But I understand your concern . I'm just very disappointed that I waited so long to buy my own clay and when I finally did its no good . Maybe it's a sign of telling me that I just need to quit this habit .

Hi Earth Lady,

My cousin who stays in Jhb used to get her maid to buy me the block clay for R5, so I used to buy a lot one time so I don't run short, nw her maid has moved and so she is not able to get me the clay. In Durban there are places in town that sell it, but I don't go to town, especially the vendors. My maid used to buy me the white clay in Durban but she not around anymore. Please can u find out if its possible to send me different varieties of clay, will pay the price and costs. I really wanna try the red clay also. Do u by any chance come to Durban, if so, can u bring me the clay? Its more hard to hav access to clay as I am indian. Thanks

Hi Mel

Ok I understand. I will see when I go into town because I can get you at least three different kinds of clay from thr lady that sells it to me. Sadly I dont come to that side often but ill ask if she can perhaps post it to you.

I so wish I could try some white dirt/clay ive never had it before. Ive seen that there is some here in SA plus the georgia white dirt looks so good in all the videos.

Anyway speak soon Mel and Alex I hope you will be ok.

The U.S. and its private sector partners initially will focus its efforts on six countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria and Tanzania, where Obama will wrap up his trip later this week. Former President George W. Bush, who supports health programs throughout the continent, will also be in Tanzania next week, and the White House did not rule out the possibility that the two men might meet. Just had to post this info since a lot of the clay forum members are from these 6 countries ...Wishing you all the best.

Made my cornstarch chunks yesterday..... Omg they were so good kinda taste like white dirt once it's in chunk form. I used Argo in the box put box in microwave for two mins and placed in freezer for a couple of hours. When I reopened the box the cornstarch was hard so I broke it up and I could just grab the chunks that had formed. Just like white dirt I popped a piece in my mouth. The crunch the smoothness the way it melted in my mouth was sooooooooooo good. Had a piece before I came to work can't wait til I get home. I must say I really enjoy the chunks!!!!!!
never tried it

Hey MzLibra
Please describe how white dirt tastes? Is its texture smooth like clay? I heard someone describe it as being chewy. Does it cling to your pallet?
One day, I sure will get my hands on some white dirt. Yummm

For me the white dirt taste dry smooth and very creamy. I bake some and then it's extra dry and chewy yes it sticks to ur pallet. It's described like chocolate melting in your mouth. The smell is like fresh rain

Hi Mel
She sells both the Joburg block clay and the clay from Zim. Which would you like? Im not sure when ill be going into town but when I go ill ask her for you ok?
Interesting that there are no vendors that side because its sold in most places for about R5 a block/packet like here.
Where do you usually get your clay? What kind of clay do you usually eat?
hi Earthy lady, interesting story. can you please ask the lady if there is anyone in Jorbug who sells the Zim clay. i like the Zim clay it's very earthy.
