What clay is needed for the treatment of joints?
As well as the well-known mud therapy, the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system is based on the beneficial effects of the clay mineral complex. It contains not only aluminum and silicon oxides, which are the main substances for any kind of this plastic mineral. In clay, you can find impurities of iron, calcium, carbon or copper, as well as substances of organic origin. All together, treatment with mineral preparations makes it very effective for many different diseases.
Blue clay is used to treat joint diseases and the effects of injuries. Cobalt and cadmium salts, which have a beneficial effect on the inflamed organs, give color to the mineral. As a result of accelerated blood circulation, the joints are better supplied with oxygen, which accelerates tissue regeneration. With gout, enhanced blood microcirculation also contributes to the rapid dissolution of urate crystals (uric acid salts), which injure the cartilage surfaces of the joint, causing pain and inflammation.
White clay can be used for internal use. The high calcium content, which gives it color, makes the mineral a natural supplier of a substance that is good for the joints. In addition, white kaolin varieties have high absorbing properties, removing toxins from the body, which are formed in the process of inflammation.
If it is impossible to purchase blue (Cambrian) clay for the treatment of joints at home, you can use its red variety. This mineral is much more widespread, and its outlets can be found on river cliffs or mountain slopes. Red clay contains a large amount of iron oxides and potassium, which promotes the excretion of excess fluid and dissolved salts.
Independent collection of medicinal raw materials should be carried out in places remote from large industrial facilities and highways. It is desirable that the mined piece of mineral be uniform, without inclusions of soil. The presence of sand impurities in the clay is acceptable, but such a grade is not suitable for certain procedures.

The most effective is the method of applying the overlays, which are superimposed on the joint for an hour and a half, after which it is recommended to wrap it in a wool scarf and keep it warm.

Description, causes of violation
There are many causes of knee joint disruption, injuries (rupture of the miniscus, joints), stretching, salt deposits, genetic complications that transmit by inheritance, complications after infectious diseases.
When treating and post-trauma physiotherapy when using clay, the following processes occur, penetrating the sod (middle layer of the skin) accelerates the metabolism, regenerates the cells, removes puffiness and pain, draws out toxins and cleans the body from slags .. The clay is inherently adsorbing, disinfecting and enveloping properties, it absorbs toxins, odors, does not allow decomposition to rotting products.
The human body itself chooses from it the necessary amount of useful minerals, and gives in return harmful substances. It is used to relieve swelling, relax muscle tissue, and provide the necessary minerals with cartilage tissue. Silicon contained in 100 g. clay from 180-775 ml. one of the most important substances for joints. Silicon is needed to maintain and improve the texture of collagen, which affects the elasticity of tissues. Silicon accelerates bone growth, necessary for cartilage tissue.
What clay to use?
Although in medicine, white and blue clay are more popular due to the higher content of kaolin in them (available in the pharmacy as well in stores selling cosmetics) based on them make ointments, creams, powders, powder, masks. For the treatment of the knee joint, you can use any clay, the main thing is that it is mined away from the city, and freed from impurities (put the clay in a container with water, and after 2-5 hours we pour water, then we dry it in the sun, and grind it into powder , powder stored in a glass jar on the window.
Hot trays (for limbs)
For evaporation of diseased joints, hot baths are also recommended:
We dilute 1 tablespoon of clay powder in 1 liter of hot water, wait for it to cool down a little, and lower the palm or foot in the bath, sit for 20 minutes. Trays perfectly help with acute joint pain, as well as heel spur, and rough skin on the feet, old mazol.
Compared with baths, a large scope for all areas, used in complex treatment, 1 tablespoon of clay powder per 1 liter of water. We dive around the heart for 30 minutes, the water temperature is about 40 degrees, taking a shower after the procedure, and a nourishing cream.

Reception course 2 weeks. Week break, and another week of admission.
In the process of applying applications, pain occurs in the blood and nerves, in this pain the treatment comes, with other methods of pain, it does not occur, but since it is still peculiar to clay to dry the skin, it is necessary to lubricate with procedures even after the procedures .
Instead of water in any form of application, in addition to applications, an infusion of herbs can be used; in the interaction, the beneficial properties of the herbs and clay are not indicated as contraindications.
Clay can not be kept in a metal dish, stir with metal spoons, when in contact with the metal its useful properties deteriorate. Store in a dark but not humid place.
Despite the centuries-old confirmation of its effectiveness and a solid place in traditional medicine, you should not rely entirely on clay therapy, you can buy clay not from decent suppliers, and find where clay has more impurities needed for production, but not for treatment.
How is clay used to treat joints?
Those who have visited mud baths are familiar with the main ways of using minerals for the treatment of joint diseases. Plastic semi-liquid mass is used in the form of local funds, mud baths are also popular. According to the same principles, therapeutic clay of blue, red or white color can be used.
Among the most convenient applications of clay in the home can be called several main ones:
- applications for sore joints,
- massage with clay.
At a special place is the reception of clay water inside. For this method of treatment is recommended to buy white or blue clay at the pharmacy. This is a specially prepared mineral, purified from foreign matter and ground into powder.
To take a common bath of clay at home is quite difficult. The density of the solution for this purpose must reach a creamy consistency. Purchased clay powder can cost a significant amount, but if you can independently extract a large amount of therapeutic mineral, its use is acceptable.
Most often, local baths are made for the affected small joints of the hands and feet (fingers, wrists, ankles).
Curative treatments with clay at home
Self-harvested clay must be processed before use. To do this, a piece of mineral should be crushed into small chips. Then the clay is poured with water so that it is slightly covered with liquid. The solution is stirred and left in the sun for 12 hours.
After the specified time, the solution should be thoroughly stirred so that it becomes homogeneous and without lumps. Due to the swelling of dry clay, the drug acquires the consistency of a cream or melted butter. If you need a thicker composition, you can add a little dry clay, well crushed and sifted through a sieve.
As a liquid in the preparation of therapeutic solutions, you can use aqueous extracts of medicinal herbs (sabelnik, chestnut, large burdock, willow bark, yarrow, etc.).
The combination of the properties of medicinal plants and clay enhances the effect of the components and increases the effectiveness of treatment.
When preparing the solution for ingestion, it is necessary to use decoctions of plants in the indicated dosage.
Compresses and wraps
These are similar procedures that differ only in the way they are set. Clay for the treatment of joints with compresses and wraps should reach the consistency of softened butter.
When preparing the solution, it is necessary to use hot water or a decoction of medicinal plants (temperature up to +45 ºС). The mass is applied to a clean fabric of natural fibers (gauze, linen flap, etc.).
After that, a compress of clay impose on the diseased organ. From above it is necessary to cover it with a film (polyethylene, food) and wrap well. The effect of compresses and wrappings largely depends on the temperature of the clay gruel, so it should be kept warm for 30-35 minutes.
In contrast to the formulation of a compress, the film is not used when wrapping. The mass is similarly applied to the tissue and applied to the joint, closing the adjacent areas. After that, the sore spot should be wrapped up and held for about 30 minutes. After removing the clay, it is recommended to perform simple exercises for flexion-extension of the joint.
And clay compresses and wraps have a noticeable effect only with prolonged use. It is necessary up to 14 procedures, carried out 2 times a day, so that the pain in the joints completely disappears.
The use of the therapeutic properties of blue clay in case of joint disease is also possible when it is used as a massage mass. For the preparation of the solution, a sand-free pharmaceutical powder from a mineral is needed. In self-harvested clay, solid particles may occur that will traumatize the skin.
From clay powder and vegetable oil (olive, sunflower, first cold press or special massage) should be prepared creamy mass.
Cream with blue clay is applied to the joints affected by the disease, and perform grinding for 10-15 minutes. It is not recommended to rub the composition into the skin with force to avoid injury to it and the underlying tissues.
The movements are performed with only slight pressure, and the hands of the massage therapist must glide over the layer of oily mass.
The procedure is carried out 2 times a day. After the end of rubbing you need to remove the remains of the cream with a clean cloth. Wrap the diseased joint and lie for at least 1 hour after the procedure.
Blue clay massage course is 30 days. Then make a break for 1 week, after which the course is desirable to repeat. With massage movements, blood circulation in the area of the joint is enhanced, which favorably affects the regenerative processes in the tissues.

Components need to mix well and drink the solution until solid particles have precipitated out. Reception of clay water is made 20-30 minutes before meals 2 times a day.
This tool enriches the body with calcium, binds toxins in the gastrointestinal tract and has a tonic effect.
For baths requires the use of a thicker solution. At the same time, the clay is diluted in hot water (+ 40 ... + 45 ºС) until the consistency of sour cream is obtained.
Sick hands or feet are immersed in the solution and incubated for 20–5 minutes. Remaining clay should be removed with a clean cloth, the joint should be wrapped and lay for 30–60 minutes.

For these reasons, it is not recommended to prepare raw materials by yourself - it is better to take the appropriate kind of clay in a pharmacy or specialty store.
Treatment of joints at home
Clay - a product that with diseases of the joints can not only be used for external use, but also used inside. Attention to the accuracy of adherence to clay recipes will ensure the absence of side effects and quick results, which will be fixed for a long time.
To make a compress from clay of the chosen color, you will need to take the required amount of powder, put it in a suitable container and slowly pour warm (about 40 ° C) heat, you should not heat more clay, as it begins to lose its beneficial properties) water. The consistency of the resulting mass should resemble fat sour cream. Stir the clay with water to a wooden stick.
After completing the cultivation of clay, take the fabric prepared in advance (it can be gauze, linen or cotton) and put a layer of clay on it. The thickness of the layer should be approximately 2 centimeters, and the area is slightly larger than the place to which the compress is planned to be applied.
The finished compress is lightly moistened with warm water just before use for better skin contact.
Attention: when preparing a clay compress, the product should in no case be in contact with the metal - otherwise oxidation will occur, and there will be no effect from such a procedure. Use utensils from other materials.
Fabric with clay is placed on the sore spot and fixed with a bandage - this is necessary in order to avoid displacement. From above, you will need to additionally warm the compress area with a woolen cloth. Leave the compress for an hour or two, then remove, wash off the remnants of clay with warm water and dry the skin, and then wrap it in a woolen cloth.
Compresses are a popular method of using clay for joints.
The course of treatment with clay compresses can last from 12 to 20 procedures, depending on the recommendations of the attending physician, who should be consulted before using such a prescription. Compresses can be applied either every other day or two or three days in a row, followed by a break for a day. This treatment is important for arthritis, polyarthritis, radiculitis.
In case of diseases of the joints, its combination with a decoction of herbs will help strengthen the effect of the clay compress. To prepare, first take 1 tsp. hops, wild rosemary, snakehead, fill with a glass of water.
Bring the mixture to a boil, then let sit for 20 minutes over low heat, remove, strain and add a teaspoon of aloe juice to the resulting broth. Now use this broth to dilute the powdered clay to the consistency desired for the compress.
The resulting composition will need to keep on the joint for two hours, repeated daily for a week.
Baths with clay have a more extensive effect in the case of lesions of the joints, not only positively affecting the affected areas, but also providing a preventive effect for the remaining joints. For the clay bath, you will need to collect the required amount of warm water (the temperature should be pleasant for the person, but not too hot) and stir the clay there.
The amount of powder is calculated based on the proportion: one tablespoon per liter of water. You can make baths for the whole body, and you can use baths, which will be especially useful for diseases of the joints of the hands and feet.
The proximity of the affected joint to the skin makes the baths effective not only to eliminate the disease of the joint itself, but also to improve the condition of the skin over it.
Clay bath will have a complex effect on joints
It is necessary to take a bath for half an hour, after which for some time left clay on the body - so the joints will get more nutrients. The course of treatment is 2 weeks, if necessary, it can be repeated after a month.

Leave it for another 5 minutes to allow the clay to settle down a bit, after which the water should be carefully drained into a separate container.
To the resulting clay water, add lemon juice in the amount of two teaspoons. Hands in such a bath hold for about half an hour, then wipe dry and wear warm gloves, which will need to pass for about an hour. A bath of earthen water with lemon is applied every day, after three days you need to take a break for a day.
Duration of treatment - until the complete elimination of pain.
Problems with joints are often associated with metabolic disorders, and drinking clay solution will help to normalize metabolic processes in the body. The easiest way to prepare the following composition: stir a teaspoon of clay powder in a glass of water at room temperature and drink immediately, until the particles have time to settle on the bottom.

Blue clay: properties and uses for joints
Myth number 1. Clay has a very useful mineral composition.
Wait before breakfast itself for half an hour.
Various pathologies of the joints bring a person physical suffering and psychological discomfort. To combat them today uses many techniques. One of the most effective and unusual is the treatment of clay joints.
Blue clay, the use of which is possible only after the permission of the attending physician is fine-grained rock, it is based on a mineral called kaolinite. Due to the high content of silicon oxide and aluminum, this natural soil has an unusual blue tint.
Clay is known for its broad healing properties: it can be used to treat joints, get rid of cellulite and rejuvenate the skin. If you rinse the eyes with water on clay, you can quickly eliminate conjunctivitis.
Blue clay is said to contain a lot of silicon, aluminum, calcium and manganese:
In fact, the most valuable suppliers of minerals in this plastic rock:
- kaolinite (aluminum oxide and silicon),
- montmorillonite (magnesium oxide, aluminum and silicon),
- other silicates and oxides of aluminum (hydrargillite, andalusite, corundum, diasporas, etc.),
- potassium mica (muscovite).
Aluminum and silicon oxides are really enough in clay, but there are few other important trace elements in it, there is no manganese at all, and calcium is contained in the form of carbonate as a contaminating mineral.
Any clay contains such contaminating minerals:
- calcium and magnesium carbonate
- aluminosilicates and iron oxides,
- quartz, gypsum,
- Marcas, in which there are impurities, even small, arsenic, bismuth, antimony.
The extraordinarily rich mineral composition of blue clay is somewhat exaggerated. Healing mud may contain them more. In addition, there are many crystals and metal oxides (insoluble compounds) in the clay, as well as impurities of harmful elements.
Myth number 2. All clays heal joints
This is not true - many clays do not contain minerals in their composition and are used as:
- sorbents in filters,
- natural enterosorbents in medicine, which, like activated carbon, is often used for poisoning.
The most famous sorbents are Bent and Smecta. But no other healing properties, except absorbent, these drugs do not possess. Therefore, it is impossible to use, as some sources suggest, any clay for the treatment of joints that is under the feet.
There are tables of clayey healing minerals in different territories, so you must be familiar with them in order not to buy, instead of medical mass, the usual sorbent.
Myth number 3. Blue clay - the most therapeutic
Dyeing clays in all sorts of shades does not add or reduce any healing properties. There are no such scientific color definitions at all; they are popular everyday names. In fact, the name defines the main mineral component, for example, clay can be:
The color of clay depends on its impurities.
All useful clays used in medicine and cosmetology include kaolin, a white mineral of various shades (blue, gray, pink, etc.), so the so-called blue clay can actually be white.
At the same time, widespread bentonite clay may be brown, blue, bluish, but not curative at all.
The healing properties of bentonite clay depend on the presence of the main component in it, montmorillonite, and its content should be at least 85%.
For example, bentonites of the most ancient Kudrinskoye deposit have such a composition. According to one of the bioenergy theories, there are deposits in them that caught the era of rapid growth of dinosaurs, therefore, this clay absorbed the most powerful, healing energy and life-giving power.
Myth number 4. Blue clay - the best treatment of diseases of the joints
Indeed, kaolinites and bentonites with a sufficient amount of the basic mineral have certain healing properties:
- accelerate the exchange of beneficial trace elements necessary for the regeneration of cartilage, the healing of fractures,
- absorb harmful substances
- have a warming effect
- stimulate blood circulation.
But the latter properties can be undesirable and even dangerous when exacerbating inflammatory and purulent processes. Clay does not have a direct antibacterial or analgesic effect, so it cannot be used as a self-sufficient treatment, especially for various types of infectious arthritis.
When clay treatment is possible
Treatment of gout, whose etiology is directly related to impaired internal metabolism and crystallization of uric acid salts, can be quite successful, if it is carried out comprehensively, with the intake of appropriate therapeutic drugs (colchicine, allupurinol, etc.) and adherence to a special diet.
Also, as part of complex treatment, you can use blue clay with heel spurs or bursitis.
Treatment of joints with clay is desirable to produce using external compresses or rubbing. It is dangerous to apply this remedy inside, since the clay may contain iron oxides, mica, arsenic, thallium and other substances dangerous for the gastrointestinal tract and the whole organism.
It is difficult to verify the true composition of kaolinite or bentonite, since misleading information is often indicated in annotations.
It is better to use for therapeutic purposes for ingestion better clay with an alkaline exchange type, for example, a natural mineral mined in the Kudrinskoye field.
How to use blue clay in cosmetology
In cosmetology, kaolinite or bentonite can be used only in its pure form, as a mask that is applied briefly, in no way combining it with oils and creams, since the mineral component contained in the clay can cement the pores tightly.
Clay treatment of gynecological diseases
Many have heard about the treatment of chronic female inflammatory diseases, especially adhesive processes, with blue clay. However, care must be taken here:
- before applying external applications on the abdomen and buttocks, it is necessary to exclude acute and infectious processes,
- after using tampons, it is necessary to immediately wash with a weak solution of potassium permanganate or with a decoction of chamomile and calendula.
Blue Clay Mastopathy Treatment
How can even a high-quality, plastic mineral material treat such a complex hyperplastic dishormonal disease as mastopathy? What is the point? It is said that thanks to the nutrition of the mastopathic nodes, they are resorbed. Nutrition What? How can aluminum oxide or silicon adjust hormones? Here is a clear nonsense and quackery.
Also pseudoscientific and harmful is the assurance that clay can cure cancer, supposedly from radium contained in it. Against the background of remarks about the possible presence of radium in clay as a deficiency, there are separate postulates of the nineteenth century, when they really tried to treat tumors with radioactive metals, not knowing yet of such a terrible consequence, like radiation sickness.
Compresses and rubbing
The principle of treatment with clay at home is the same as for mud therapy:
- Two-thirds of the non-metallic container is filled with powder, filled with water and stirred well with a wooden spoon.
- Water can be replaced with a decoction of herbs of anti-inflammatory and anti-infective action, which will enhance the action of clay (sabelnik, willow bark, burdock, comfrey, currant leaves, chamomile, etc.).
- Prepared plastic mass can be rubbed, as well as use it as a compress, wrapping a napkin and a scarf on top.
- If you use clay in combination with oils, the warming effect of such a compress will be very strong, so you should not leave it for a long time, and especially for the whole night.
- You can not also put compresses on the region of the heart and stomach.
From the solution of a thicker consistency, you can roll a cake from clay, which is then applied to the sore area of the leg, covered with a film and fixed with a bandage or a piece of natural cotton fabric, or simply woolen sock on top:
- with gout, the cake is placed on the tophus area (solid crystalline formation on the leg),
- in the treatment of spurs - on the heel.
Clay for the treatment of joints can be applied in the form of a bath. For this, clay water is prepared in a ratio of about 1:10. This can be a small bath for hands and feet, or a regular bath where you can dive with your whole body if there is enough clay.
Ingestion of blue clay
It is possible to apply blue clay inside, only being confident in its strictly alkaline, and not alkaline-earth type of action. For these purposes, it is good to use kaolin (white) clay mass.
The solution is prepared as follows:
- One teaspoon of sifted powder is diluted in warm water.
- Accept within two weeks for half an hour to food.
Blue clay wraps are effective in inflammatory diseases of the joints - bursitis, arthritis, etc. Thick clay is applied with a thick uniform layer on a piece of clean gauze folded several times. This “patch” wraps the sore joint, wrapping it with a woolen cloth on top.
Two hours later, the bandage is removed, the skin is washed with warm water and wipe dry. You need to repeat the procedure every other day. The course of treatment is at least 2 weeks. After a week break, the course can be repeated.
In more complex cases, compresses with blue clay are shown. They are made the same way as wraps, only on top of a gauze bandage with clay you need to tie your joint with plastic wrap. The course of procedures in this case is one week.
Facilitates well-being and grinding with clay water - they improve blood circulation in the joints and restore their flexibility and mobility.
To facilitate movements and relieve pain in small joints (for example, fingers), it is good to use earthen baths, heating it to a temperature of 37-40 ° and adding two or three teaspoons of lemon juice (aloe can be replaced with lemon).
Take this bath should be every day for half an hour. After the procedure, wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and wear woolen gloves for one hour.
Blue clay in cosmetology
Blue clay is also indispensable in cosmetology.
It is good for the skin!
Clay masks saturate skin cells with microelements and essential mineral components, normalize sebum production, cleanse and tighten enlarged pores, remove dead skin particles, heal boils and acne.
Apply a mask of thick clay on wet skin, hold until dry.
It is not recommended to overdo the mask in order not to get irritated, because drying clay strongly skin.
Wash off the mask with warm water, then, instead of lotion, wipe the face with a cotton pad dipped in herbal tea (you can use green tea for this purpose).
After that, be sure to apply the appropriate cream for your skin. Do this procedure no more than 2 times a week.
