Sorry for the late response. I got my left hand palm cut(a deep cut). Huhhh!!! was in pain all day yesterday and still.
I appreciate you taking your time to respond. I really don't know how to thank you.
At the moment I don't see any visible blood on the toilet paper or in the toilet bowl but

> incomplete evacuation

So I'm thinking it could be a sign of proctitis (stage 0 or 1). To me I want to kick this disease to the quiet state at the very begining itself.
I will keep taking the clay.
I would like to know the type of Argiletz ultraventilated montmorillonite green clay. Is it swelling or non-swelling?
What is the difference between swelling and non-swelling clays?
Please could you explain me?
You have been suggesting non-swelling clay. But I just happened to fall on the below site which says montmorillonite french green clay is a SWELLING clay.
I have extracted the contents from the above site for your quick view
`Both Illte and Montmorillonite clays absorb water. However, the Montmorillonite clay is called 'the swelling' type, while illite clays are called 'non-swelling'.`
I really panicked to think am I taking wrong clay? and thought of asking you as you have done a lot of study about
But I understand from your early posts that non-swelling type clay dissolves in minutes. That is what I could see with Argiletz ultraventilated montmorillonite green clay. i.e the clay sediments in the bottom in 15 mins. But then why does the above site say french montmorillonite as swelling type!!!
I would like to discuss few other things w.r.t diet in a separate post
because at the moment I really would like to know about
the clay type and am I on the right one. I'm going freaking crazy on it.
I once again appreciate your courage to think about
this alternative treatment that too when you were in a big flare and share it with the world. Really a nice heart.
