I always loved eating clay. After started feeling some pain in my kidneys as a teenager doctors said its probably from clay. I stopped eating but sometimes I just chew it then throw it. I don't know how to stop. Whenever seeing something like clay I just remember the smell of nature and clay. I smell the rain when I chew it.

I also love eating clay, but once a while it helps when I have heart burn. but too much of it is bad it will make you get constipation

I live in TX too! I settle for wetting some dirt in my yard but I know it is dangerous to do so because you can get parasites. Where do you buy yours?
