That is the Austrian Clay Treatment (Fangocur) that you drink? They claim to reduce inflammation in the whole GI tract over a 3 week treatment regime. I am thinking of getting it but wanted to know if anyone else had any experience with it?

Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: Inditerminate Patchy Colitis. Also suffer from Peptic Ulcers could be related to Asacol. Current Medication: 500mg Asacol Suppositories, 800mg Asacol Tablets x 2 a day.

Never heard of it sorry. Just be careful with some of these items, they can hurt more than help at times.

Good luck,

I'd not try anything that isn't licensed to do what they say it does. I sent mine back today. The customer services was appalling and the lady couldn't even speak English. It's too risky taking something - the product more or less says its cures every disease like a magic potion. Mine has gone back, just not worth the risk. They even send it out without payment and invoice you later, that desperate they are to get it off their shelf!

I just found this.... THANK GOD I GAVE IT BACK TODAY...

Arsenic has been found in a powdered mineral drink which claims to treat bowel disease, the Food Standards Agency warned today.

Fangocur Mineral Drink contains dangerous levels of the substance and two users in Cheshire are thought to have fallen ill because of the product.

Their symptoms include dizziness, heart palpitations and stomach cramps.

The drink is sold via the internet from Austria, and claims to be a "comprehensive inflammatory bowel disease treatment" for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Under UK law this type of medicinal claim cannot be made about food supplements.

Made of "volcanic healing clay", it comes in powder format and must be dissolved in water before ingestion.

The FSA said anyone who has bought Fangocur should not consume it, and those who have and feel ill should seek medical advice.

Arsenic occurs naturally in a wide range of foods at very low levels.

There are two forms, the more dangerous of which was found in Fangocur and is associated with an increase in skin, lung and bladder cancer.

The FSA recommends that exposure to the substance is as low as possible.

A spokeswoman said: "It's being sold in Austria so we don't have any jurisdiction over there. The important thing for us is that UK consumers do not drink it."

Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: Inditerminate Patchy Colitis. Also suffer from Peptic Ulcers could be related to Asacol. Current Medication: 500mg Asacol Suppositories, 800mg Asacol Tablets x 2 a day.
