Why Pascalite Works!
The following information are excerpts from various newsletters issued by PASCALITE Inc. written by Ray Pendergraft and staff:
What is Pascalite? Pascalite is a form of calcium bentonite (Montmorillonite) formed millions of years ago, probably through volcanic action. A cream-colored, cheese-like material containing at least twenty elements including iron, magnesium, and silicon, Pascalite differs from the better known and more widespread sodium bentonite in that it does not swell with water. Ground into powder the clay readily dissolves in water. Today Pascalite is mined and marketed by Pascalite, Inc., of Worland Wyoming. Dug from an underground shaft at an elevation of 9,000 feet, the clay is solar dried and ground into a fine powder.
To help explain some of the abilities possessed by PASCALITE, Ray quotes the report by Dr Walter W. Bennett, PhD., Epistemologist and Research Scientist, who spent several months during 1975 in a very sophisticated examination of PASCALITE. He reports: "The presence of protein in this material gives evidence of yet un-disclosed amino acids. The fact that amounts are small, and that even the requirements are for minute quantities in no way diminishes their great Importance.
"Microbiological analysis reveals the interesting fact that the raw material is completely sterile as pertains to any bacteria. However, it contains the spores of at least 6 different types of fungi.
"When used as a media of raw material it inhibits the growth of representative pathogens such as staphylococcus, streptococcus, salmonella, escherichia coli and pseudomonas aeruginosa.
"Only 2 of the fungi of the several found in the sample have been identified at this time; namely Actinomyces and Penicillium. Each of these fungi is responsible for production of its own class of antibiotics."
A remarkable book, "COMPILED NOTES ON CLINICAL NUTRITIONAL PRODUCTS," by Dr. Walter H. Schmitt, Jr.. states: "PASCALITE - A sea-bed product very high in mineral content, but also very valuable as a tool in cleaning out the intestinal tract. (It) is an incredible substance which is small enough to act as a scrubbing agent in the intestinal intervillous spaces. These areas often get plugged up with mucus, thereby decreasing the absorptive surface of the small intestine and leading to mal-absorption of varying degree.
The substances thus mobilized often show up in the stool. Long strings of mucus (which the patient sometimes thinks are tapeworms) occasionally with a little blood, are very common. The patient must be warned that this is a good sign the G.I. tract is cleaning out. Cautioned ahead of time, it will prevent them from becoming needlessly upset .... "
Scientists worldwide are working with clay, excited by its potential. - From the New York Times: "Clay shimmers with electronic energy. It triggers intricate chemical reactions, and sucks poisons from the environment."-The crystalline lattice of clay gives it the ability to store energy and then re-emit it. And up on the Big Horn Mountains, in an underground tunnel that we drive deeper into the mountain each summer after the snow vanishes, lies the "shimmering white clay, moist and eternally 'alive'," PASCALITE, which we dig and store in a solar shed to absorb further energies from the sun for a year, waiting to be transported down to our plant, powdered and offered to mankind, to benefit through those still-mysterious remarkable abilities that are finally becoming recognized.
MORE EXCITING NEWS! Harvey C. Lisle, chemical engineer, specializing in biodynamics, established PASCALITE, as a "rock dust", is "Alive." radiating energy 100 feet, and POSSESSES THE ABILITY TO NEGATE NOXIOUS ENERGY. Placed above or below the TV set or microwave. testing shows complete irradification of the harmful electric energies emanating from them. And IT NEGATED THE NOXIOUS ENERGIES FROM A 12.000 VOLT LINE IN THE AREA IN FRONT OF HIS HOME.
There is concern currently as to the potentially harmful electronic fields generated by anything electrical, big or small. Recently the Environmental Protective Agency expressed concern that those emissions may be linked to leukemia, lymphoma, brain cancer. This issue must be taken seriously - demanding much more research.
The reported ability of PASCALITE clay (and other "live" rock dusts) to negate these harmful energies may well assume great importance for future health.
An important and practical use of "live" rock dust is rejuvenating "dead" soil. In the Black Forest of Germany, in Austria, in Poland, this dust is being blown into dying forests, and the forests are responding with new life. These "live" dusts have the ability to improve soil structure, ameliorate drought conditions, oxidate the soil so it can breathe normally, drain better in wet weather and retain moisture in dry weather. It attracts moisture to the soil and to the crops grown in that soil.
"THE CLAY HAS STARTLING ELECTRONIC ENERGIES OF ITS OWN!"
PASCALITE is a rare calcium bentonite, formed thirty million years ago as the froth and foam of the fiery and convulsive era atop the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming. Over the centuries, it captured the calcium from that limestone formation, and many other minerals (now known to be vital to life) in trace amounts migrated into it --manganese, cobalt, copper, etc... Slowly cooling temperatures converted these to oxides, readily absorbed in the human metabolism. It was further enriched by abundant plant life, and tissues, bones, hides, and hair of many prehistoric animals, adding their proteins and amino acids.
PASCALITE' exists now as a cream-colored, cheese-like material, which we hand mine underground (avoiding contamination), solar dry in the high, mountain (preserving its apparent antibiotic qualities), then powder--making It readily usable for both internal and external purposes.
Please do not confuse PASCALITE with ordinary clays---sodium bentonite, Jordan clay, French green clay, etc..., Though listed as a calcium bentonite, at least one government agent has hinted it may well be an as-yet-unidentified material outside the scope of present knowledge. Dr. Walter Bennett; PhD, who investigated it in depth stated it was still "a very mysterious substance".
One, research group gives a possible explanation as to why PASCALITE differs from other clays. It lies relatively near the famous, mysterious Big Horn Medicine Wheel, which dates back to antiquity. "We feel medicine wheels were built on vortex areas where earth energies surface intensely, and the PASCALITE contains that same intense energy." Conventional science remains silent on this.
As to the mineral makeup of PASCALITE, chemical analysis confirms: Silicon, Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Titanium, Sodium, Chromium, Copper, Aluminum, Manganese, Barium, Cobalt, Boron, Potassium, Vanadium, Nickel, Cadmium, Gallium, Strontium, Phosphorus and Zirconium. Some elements in PASCALITE which have not definitely been proven essential to life are Aluminum, Titanium, Nickel, Barium, Cadmium, Gallium, Strontium, and Zirconium., Of these; all but Nickel and Gallium have established medicinal properties. Nickel is highly suspected as essential to life processes, and Gallium has no known toxicity to man or beast. Considering the mineral composition and the soluble forms available, this natural material -PASCALITE- is a valuable food supplement and has extra-ordinary qualities as relates to nutrition and health.
Dr. Bennett adds that results from the use of this natural material suggests a synergism which is not completely understood. "The multiple, complex inter-dependencies of the elements involved suggest many important facts about the role and inter-relations of metal ions in nutrition, health, and disease. It is well under-stood that a wide variety of metalloenzymes is required for the successful function of living organisms."
PASCALITE is used both internally and externally. Some of its minerals occur in trace amounts, however, their presence in PASCALITE certainly has some part In the final results, and must be reckoned in its evaluation. States Dr. Bennett, "the fact that amounts are small, and that even requirements are for minute quantities, in no way diminishes their great importance."
Available for internal use, we offer PASCALITE in powder, tablets, and capsules. One neglected mineral in PASCALITE, lately recognized as vital to living tissue, is silica. It is found in PASCALITE as silicate and silicones. In the body silica occurs as collagen, a connective tissue covering the brain, spinal cord, and the nerve systems. It is an essential part of hair, skin and nails. Some researchers have hinted that a lack of silica in the brain and nerves may be one cause of poor memory.
The great importance of iron to life is well established. PASCALITE provides an abundance of iron as oxides, readily usable in the body. PASCALITE also offers that sometimes scant -but vital- mineral, magnesium, the importance of which is now recognized. It is reported to be involved in virtually every cellular activity. With aluminum, it helps regulate the digestive system, controls both diarrhea and constipation. It joins with calcium in the prevention of kidney stones. It has a hand in regulating blood sugar, and is important in the maintenance of balance between sodium, calcium, and potassium. In PASCALITE it exists as magnesium oxide. Some investigators feel that people living in soft water areas may be unaware sufferers of magnesium deficiency. There may be some evidence that this deficiency may be involved in alcohol addiction.
Dr. Bennett's final report: "There are three or four different species of penicillium, one of which was identified as P. Notatum, important in the production of the antibiotic. Streptomycin was found; several of its species account for a whole range of antibiotics. Actinomycetaceae was seen as A. Antibioticus."
Therefore, in lieu of the above, PASCALITE's value as a dietary supplement is established. And it is reported to have one more ability: as a pain killer. Toothache victims and others have remarked this, almost immediately after application of PASCALITE paste.
It has many other uses, many beauticians state it has no equal as a facial conditioner. They report that it's skin-tightening effect when used on the face is so strong as to be almost painful. We have been told that when PASCALITE pulls the red blood cells to the skin surface, leaving your face temporarily red, it has done it's job.
The drawing action is a hand in regulating blood sugar, and is important in the maintenance of balance between sodium, calcium, and potassium. In PASCALITE it exists as magnesium oxide. pulling the impurities out to the surface to be flushed away. Therefore, PASCALITE is an unusually effective cleanser, to remove deeply-embedded grime, leaving the skin clean, fresh, and healthily glowing.
PASCALITE is a natural deodorant, used either dry or in liquid form. In our mining operations, we discovered that dead animals - rock chucks, porcupines, etc - when buried in the mine tailings which contained a small amount of PASCALITE, did not decompose, but eventually became mummified.
Some of our users have informed us 'that a small amount of PASCALITE powder mixed with tap water gives it the pure taste of mountain spring water"!
Germicidal tests show PASCALITE to be sterile; and further, that it possesses the physical ability to occlude and precipitate cultural media. A solution of 2 ounces of powdered PASCALITE in one gallon of water used to wash two walls of a hospital room showed a sterile culture 4 days after washing. The other walls, washed by the conventional method, showed daily contamination.
PASCALITE clay, as a natural product, re-acts differently in each of us. As an individual, you may need to experiment to get the best results for yourself.
Some animal testing and usage was done by some vets with gratifying results. Several cattlemen in the Worland area have been using PASCALITE for the treatment of scours In their herds. Two large tablespoonfuls placed well down into the back oft heir pried-open mouths, repeated a second day, was the average treatment used to bring about complete relief from all symptoms. They reported a 100% success during the 2 years they have been using this treatment. One of these cattlemen states he used the same treatment for pneumonia in one of his cows with complete success.
"The list of often-dramatic benefits from the use of PASCALITE is so long and varied that it might well cause skepticism in the minds of the uninitiated. The surface has been barely scratched herein and documentary support of all statements exists in our files."
In addition to its other abilities, PASCALITE has been shown to be an anesthetic. Many users have reported almost immediate cessation of pain following its application in paste form to the areas.
"In our mining operations we have discovered that dead animals, buried in the tailings of the mine which contained a minor amount of PASCALITE, did not decompose, but eventually became mummified."
