"The mucous and what is on the outside of it was in our intestines. The rubbery part is the solidified shake. The solidified shake takes on the shape of the small intestine thereby forming the irregular rope look"
The black stuff and the mucous and other chunks was in the intestine and it stuck to the BH.
I have worked with Bentonite over the past 25 years. It is used to treat certain toxic wastes and when mixed with local clays makes an excellent liner in a landfill.
Bentonite has the physical characteristic of being able to absorb about 10 times its weight in water. When mixed with other compounds you can make various liquids solidify in a matter of minutes.
I was on the golf course the other day and mixed a packet of BH with a half bottle of water (I didn't have any apple juice). I wasn't able to drink it right away and when I did it was already starting to gel.
I am a chemical engineer - which in this situation doesn't mean much I know. But I know bentonite. It does not just disappear when it has absorbed water. Even though the packet only contains a few ounces of powder, it turns into many ounces of a gelatinous substance when mixed with the right amounts of water.
What goes in must come out!
Let me emphasize, I am very glad that I did the BH cleanse. I believe that it was very beneficial and I will do it again.
But I believe that the great percentage of our bowel movements that we have during one of these cleanses is what we are drinking.
