I was looking at the Ghana clay on Ebay it looks real good. it looks just like the one in the video on youtube. It looks like the real deal.It is quite interesting that since I have been on this forum we have been having access to a variety of clay.

It's strange, that it works for some people and not others, but I couldn't find it that way either - I only found it by doing a googlesearch for "visionimpactsales" because I remember somebody had posted that was the name of the seller.

I have a question that I asked before that I don't think anybody answered. I was wondering why some people pound and mould clay into shapes, instead of just eating it in natural chunks. Is it just for uniformity, or to make it easier to eat? Or some other reason?

Anybody know?

maybe it is more discreet or maybe more appealing to the eyes or the people buying it. maybe easier to carry around and just pop it into the mouth.

I used to eat soil from an early age, I ate it even more when I was pregnant, but during my last pregnancy the craving just disappeard without any medication, doctors says is due to lack of iron. and now again I crave it so bad I ended buying because sometimes i'd lick myself when I crave it. its totally bad and I wanna stop.

Hi Ladies!

Another announcement!

My supplier has managed to find me some white clay from Tanzania similar to the ghana shaped clay. Totally unexpected!

http://mavu.bigcartel.com/product/tanzania-wh...

Apparently it's a cross between white dirt and ghana clay but I personally haven't tried it yet. But yes of course it will be on the menu soon. Just love how the choice in clay is expanding! Such a leap from two years ago when there was pretty much nothing right!?

Please keep the 'I WANT IN' emails coming through if you haven't done so yet. Trust me when I say you don't want to miss out.:)

Have a nice day!

If I had regular access to good clay I never would have started eating corn starch and I don't recommend it. Yes it tastes good, but I would take a good clay over starch any day. I found corn starch to be very addictive, and I know I'm far from the only one who feels that way. For too long I ate far too much and never did like the idea of eating all that processed corn but did it anyway.
I know that corn starch can mess with going to the bathroom, but from reading other forums I know that some people have suffered other bad effects that they think were from the starch. I suggest that if you really want to try it you read up on it yourself and then decide.
I don't know whether or not they sell it in SA, but just to let you know in my travels I have seen and bought products called 'corn flour' which is the same thing.
thank you soo much for the information...i might as well quit because i thought it was better than clay when it comes to health...i thought peolpe dont like it because it makes them fat so i wanted to replace clay n eat cornstarch to manage the cravings.anyway i wil be better off without both...
