    Joel, it's been a long time since I read that book, and I may not have even finished it, so I can't give you a definitive answer. But I think you would be interested in the following very interesting article that was published in the Townsend Journal:

    Ground Zero for Lyme is the Mouth

    You may also be interested in a thread entitled "Teeth Falling Apart" in which I posted about some of this.

    Hi Lotus,
    I would think so, which is why I include psyllium and chia seeds in my detox drink. But I think the bentonite clay is in a category by itself when it comes to adsorbing heavy metals. If I remember correctly, it can bind up 100 times it's own weight or surface area, an ability that I don't really think is matched by any other product. I've heard that charcoal capsules are also good, but can't really say how they compare to clay.

    I've heard people having good results with charcoal and calcium bentonite specifically. Not necessarily both together.
    I guess I'm afraid charcoal and/or clay will also bind to all of my supplements, but I'll give it some thought. I'm doing Buhner's Lyme protocol and he recommends chlorella for binding to toxins (which some people take for mercury too). He used to recommend sarsaparilla for Lyme toxins, but is less keen on it now compared to when he wrote his book. I should mention that some people have a chlorella intolerance so anyone thinking of trying it should start off with half a capsule and gradually increase their dose to make sure they don't have a bad reaction.
