Dear Karl Loren,
Someone told me that you recommend using Clarks Minerals for many different purposes beyond what most people would think about. Can you tell me some of them?
This is a personal story by and about Karl Loren.
I'll tell it in the first person.
I have used Clarks Minerals for more than 10 years, and have always had faith in it for purposes well beyond what you might learn elsewhere.
Let me tell you about the hike I went on, Tuesday, April 20, 1998, in the hills above Burbank, California. First, take a look at my two dogs! This is computer painting from a photograph.
The big one is Chester. He's a bit over 14. He's a mix. A Benji dog with hair over his eyes, but with good teeth. He has been with us, as you see, for many years, sleeps on the bed and we love him dearly.
The white dog is Rajah, a pedigreed Maltese. When our really old dog, Brandy, died four years ago we had, then, only Chester and wanted a friend for him. So, we fell in love with Rajah and brought him home about four years ago. Rajah doesn't know he's small. He attacks every other dog, particularly the large ones.
We do love them both.
Jean Ross (my wife, better known to me as Bonnie) live in the hills above Burbank. Above our home is a street which is closed off at night -- there are no homes up that street. It leads about a mile up to the top of the hill where there is a nice park. We often walk up that hill at night, taking the dogs for their exercise. I often walk up there in the mornings, too.
In our neighborhood there are many coyotes and deer. I suppose other animals, but we see only the coyotes and deer.
Chester is big enough to chase the coyotes (except once!) but Raja is just one mouthful for a hungry coyote.
The coyotes here are not afraid of us humans, but they are not hostile either. I've had them follow us when we walked up the hill. I am sure they were following the little dog, hoping they could get at him. I call it "stalking" but it is not a fearful thing.
When this has happened, I would turn, find a coyote a few hundred feet behind, and I would start walking toward him. He would retreat. When I stopped, he stopped. When I started back in the original direction, I would turn and find that the coyote had also turned to continue following.
A few times we have surprised a coyote by coming around a bend and discovering one.
Chester would always start running after them, silently! I would generally yell at Rajah to "come" and I would gather him up in my arms to make sure he didn't just follow his bigger brother and wind up being coyote food!
At night, when I walk up that hill, I carry a powerful flashlight, flicking it up and down the road, and up the hillside into the brush. I figure that if there is some coyote watching us, the light will keep him away. It has worked, apparently.
One time I had reached the park at the top of the hill and was sitting there, this time in the morning, reading my paper while my two dogs frisked about in the park.
I heard some commotion, turned, and found a coyote right behind me. The scene was vivid in my recall: Rajah was down on the ground, just getting up. The coyote was only a couple feet away from Rajah and had apparently rushed at Rajah, startled by my turning, hit Rajah, knocked him down, but not bitten Rajah.
That coyote would leave the area only reluctantly. Rajah was not hurt. I started running toward the coyote. He ran away. I stopped. He stopped. I went back to my bench to sit, and the coyote can closer. I chased, he retreated. I stopped, he stopped.
So, this has been going on for some years.
We did lose two cats to the coyotes. The cats were just too independent and wouldn't come in at night. One of them actually jumped off the second floor balcony one night -- looking for who knows what, and found the teeth of a coyote.
So, no more cats.
We guard our dogs carefully, but think it's safe enough here with the precautions we take.
Now, these trails above our home. It is a City Park with nicely laid out and marked trails. They are very high in the hills -- perhaps 500 feet higher than our home. Beautiful views of the entire valley. I've hiked those trails often. I've never met a coyote ON one of the trails, but we have certainly seen the evidence of their using these trails.
I wouldn't go on one of those trails at night.
A few times we have seen coyotes in the street, where the trails start, so they are around.
That sets the stage, I suppose. You are supposed to put your dogs on a leash when you hike these trails, but I normally go at 7 AM and figure few others would be out at that time.
Finally, I should tell you, I have given some considerable thought to what I would do if a coyote attacked one of my dogs. I am very protective and know that I would instantly attack the coyote -- without regard for my own safety.
On Tuesday, April 20th, Bonnie was still away in Florida so I invited our housekeeper to go on a hike with me, on one of these trails. Peggy is almost as old as I am -- a lovely lady from the Philippines who, I hope, will live with us forever. She does the cooking, cleaning and gardening.
So, we started up this trail at 7 AM, Tuesday, April 20th.
After about 20 minutes we had come, perhaps, 1/4 mile, rather steep trail, lots of rocks, beautiful view. We had reached a part of the trail where it was particularly steep. Peggy and Chester were in front of me. Rajah was just immediately behind me. We were moving slowly up the trail.
There was no barking, no growling. As I said, when Chester starts out after a coyote he doesn't utter a sound -- it's a deadly silent run.
Well, I heard some commotion behind me -- and turned!
It wasn't a coyote, but it was an enormous Golden Retriever who had my little Rajah in his jaws shaking him like a rag doll. I suppose that Golden Retriever weighed 120 pounds, while Rajah weighs less than 10!
The next several seconds went by like a slow motion film. It takes me longer to tell the story than it took to live through it.
I saw this enormous dog, his large jaws around Rajah's throat, shaking little Rajah like a toy.
I started yelling and jumped at the dogs.
Since this was a steep part of the trail, I immediately started falling and sliding. The dogs were only a foot or two behind me.
We collided, I grabbed, and instantly we were a tangle of legs and bodies, all three of us, with some more sliding down the hill.
I know I still see one very clear picture of me grabbing this big Golden Retriever and pounding my fist into its head. The large dog released Rajah once, but then, quickly, grabbed him again, and was still shaking him.
All of the above couldn't have taken more than a couple seconds.
Then, the dogs owner came around the bend, just a few feet further down the hill. By this time HE was shouting at his dog. He had a second dog that bounded toward us, but this second dog was friendly and was simply going up the hill to touch noses with Chester. Chester, by this time, had come back down the trail to see what was up.
The owner of the large dog got him under control, and was putting a collar and leash on him, apologizing profusely. I realized then that I hurt bad and looked to find quite a bit of blood. I had seen Rajah just an instant before, when the Golden Retriever had let him go, and I didn't see any blood on Rajah.
Rajah took off like a very scared rabbit! Down the trail. I had to inspect my own wounds.
There were no dog bites. But there were bloody scrapes and abrasions. I took off one of my shirts to stop the blood from flowing, let the man know that I did not hold either him or his dog responsible, and started down the trail to look for Rajah.
It took me several minutes to find him. He was cowering in the middle of the trail, about 100 yards below where this all happened. He let me pick him up.
I was, amazingly, very calm. I was already thinking of how I would pick up Rajah, get down the trail to the car, gather Peggy and Chester, get home and start treating our wounds. My first thought was just to get into the shower with Raja and wash him thoroughly. I hadn't yet seen how deep were his puncture wounds.
When I got him into our bathroom I remembered how effective Clarks Minerals has been on my own cuts and bites. I recalled that it is a very acid (low pH) substance, and for that reason was very antiseptic.
I resolved to NOT take Rajah to the vet, and to NOT get any antibiotic shots for him. I decided to treat him with Clarks Minerals -- the same for me. For myself I added MSM, both internally and externally.
I took about an hour with Rajah and myself. I simply put a couple tissues up to the Clarks bottle and got the tissues sopping wet, and then held it against Rajah's wounds. He cried the first time, probably from the pressure more than anything. On my own cuts and abrasions I felt no "sting," only relief from the heat and pain.
I kept putting more and more Clarks into Rajah's three punctures. There were two on the top of his shoulders, just below his skull. The third was just below his neck, in the joint by the left front shoulder. Rajah was very patient during all this. When I was applying Clarks to his front wound he would lick the tissue -- he appeared to want and like the Clarks Minerals.
I made no effort to clean the wounds. They were dirty, but I knew that the Clarks would keep any infection out.
What Clarks also does, far better than Hydrogen Peroxide (which I considered) is provide those important trace minerals for the healing of the tissue around the wound. That area is now in desperate need of the nutrients needed to rebuild skin and tissue. Those nutrients are all, basically, minerals. At this level of healing vitamins are helpful, but the most basic need is the basic elements, the trace minerals.
I also applied the Clarks to my bleeding scrapes. At first the tissue came away dirty and bloody, but after several applications the dirt was gone and there was no more blood.
Several hours later I used some MSM in liquid form to lay over the already hardening skin and that will help that healing process.
Today, as I write this, it is about 36 hours later. Rajah is now up and walking about. All day yesterday he just lay asleep. He didn't even raise his head. I got him to drink water by putting a cup right next to his mouth (he was lying on the edge of the bed) and he didn't even move his head, but did stick his tongue out to lap up quite a bit of water.
So, that's my story. I was stiff as a board the next day -- I'm not used to rolling down hills and fighting a dog. But, now, with a chiropractic adjustment, and loads of vitamins and minerals to help, I'm feeling quite good.
It's been a long story, and very personal, but I just want to sing the praises of Clarks Minerals -- for more than just drinking one ounce a day. It is very good for the purposes described above.
