I have a weird craving for Multani Mitti or Fuller’s earth. As a child, I would eat mud and this has transformed into a craving for multani mitti. Even though I haven’t faced any health issues due to this habit, I wonder if eating multani mitti is harmful. Can you please tell me if this is a dangerous habit? Can I get some disease because of this habit? All my friends and my family stop me from eating multani mitti and tell me that it will harm my digestive system. Is this true? I would really appreciate it if you could share some details on the same. If it is harmful, how can I stop this habit? Please share some remedial measures for this habit too. I am worried sick and would really appreciate some help.

Yes of course. It may directly or indirectly inducing the process of stone formation. The habit of eating clay, mud or dirt is known as geophagy which should be avoided!!
The craving for such mud based items is called pica (disorder). Iron deficiency anemia should be ruled out in such case. Do get your hemoglobin investigated at the earliest and start earing a nutritional diet 
Consult and doctor and opt for some good calcium supplement.
