hello siya, you are not alone! Many of us in this forum have been facing this problem! We have been stucked inbetween the urge to stop and the taste/habbit. I agree fullers earth is very addictive but i dont think there is any connection between typhoid and fuller's! Regarding the advice to stop it as what you wrote you may include iron tablets or more green vegetables in your diet and drinking atleast 2 ltr of water acc to your age on your daily basis! I believe the more you have the more you crave so simply control and don't buy!:) i knw writing this is easy rather doing it :D but still all the best!and for your face prob. you cn apply multani mitti along with aloevera and lemonjuice on face that works naturaly and dosnt harm like other creams do

Hi ladies,

I've been coming here off an on for a few weeks. And I have been struggling to kick my clay addiction for 3 years. I used to eat calabasclay or the white gritty clay, but it studies have shown that it contained to much lead so I switched to luvos healing clay. To be hones I feel like a dirt junky. If I do not eat it I think about it all day.

Just finish the last 2 chunks of the 500g clay I bought yesterday. My teeth have become so sensitive due to eating alot withing a short time. I feel so guilty of my selfish act because I'm breastfeeding and can harm my baby if lead content is high. Just like all sin once you are committing the act it gives you pleasure but afterwards you feel guilty. My 7 year old has speech problem and I read that lead can cause brain damage in newborns and kids and also developmental problems. I hope to stop this behavior
Why don't you give the baby formula if you think you are harming your child?

Yes I'm waiting for my order from Mavu. It's been close to three months since I last tasted any type of clay. I just wanted to try the Nakumatt to see how it taste. I hope its as good as Shirlet says, it should arrive late next week.

As for me I am done with clay. I won't be eating clay again at least for the next two months. I want to control my silly cravings. Clay is doing me more harm than good. The only thing I get from clay is I can use it to control my diarrhea which I hardly get. Besides that reading from this forum each day helps me as well.

I hav a habit of eating soil, when I did its lyk its after a summer rain that smell of water through soil makes m crave it more. If I get soil I rather take raw sugar. But am worried abt my health. Tel m the risk of eating soil & raw sugar.

Ooo don't think u are goin to have any luck with that. Only because Soulsista and Mavu are the only legit and reputable UK clay sellers on here and I think we can agree that if there was any other suppliers they would have been mentioned by now. Mayb try the afroshops around your area. Good luck

Hello everybody

The next three weeks are going to be insanely stressful for me. I am going to break my no clay eatin rule for a bit, plus it was my birthday and I think Id like two kinds of different clays so when I get the time I hope this week, I will get the mavu and the block clay. Both are very smooth and earthy. Though the mavu is thicker here and the block clay has a more thinner feel to it as it doesnt stick together too much.

Plus everyones updates on their nakumatt has me salivating lol. Ladies please share more clay stories, like Alexx hows your clay? Plus share more chalk and cornstarch stories pleeease. I find everyones pica stories fascinating.

I find that raw carrots help with my clay cravings sometimes, along with other raw veggies.

Is it true that with cornstarch one tends to often pick up weight? Ive been procrastinating and watching so many of those youtube videos on corn starch, the chunks look so good. How does cornstarch taste? Lol I already know Argo is a lot of peoples favourite.

I hope everyone has been fine both pica-wise and otherwise.

Do you ladies like clay chunks or clay powder and why?
call me crazy but i preffer the crunch i get when biting into and chewing clay. As well well as how it slowly melts in my mouth. I feel like the earthiness is somewhat lost if its powder and if its in chunk form every bite just releases fresh earthiness. I guess i love the earthy taste more than the texture. It needs to be earthy because when it has that bagged taste to it I tend too not eat it
