Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a naturally occurring rock made from the skeletons of fossilized diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. When ground into a great powder, diatomaceous earth works mechanically to damage a wide variety of pests, insects, parasites and pathogens by cutting through the exoskeleton, absorbing bodily fluids and triggering death. Food grade diatomaceous earth is chemical-free and non toxic.
Diatomaceous earth has numerous uses including cleansing of the body– inside and out; protecting family pets and livestock from parasites and insect infestation; and keep your backyard and garden pest-free.
Add diatomaceous earth to your diet to detox parasites that can contribute to food intolerance, queasiness, bowel discomfort, discomfort, itching, asthma, sinus infections, Morgellon’s illness, and a host of other allergic-type reactions.
DE detoxes mercury, cadmium, lead and other heavy metals; gets rid of toxins from chemtrails, radiation and might relieve the effects of GMOs. DE possesses antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral homes.
In addition to detoxing and ruining pathogens, diatomaceous earth helps to lower blood pressure and contributes to the production of collagen to improve complexion, enhancing the tendons and joints.
To take in DE orally, start with half a teaspoon and develop a liking to two heaping tablespoons. Mix completely in four ounces of water. Drink right away and follow with another 8 ounces of water. Take on an empty stomach. Continue drinking water throughout the day, because DE can cause irregularity.
At first, you might experience a Herxhemier reaction
, which can cause stomach pain and flu-like signs. This is a regular reaction to detoxing, as parasites and pathogens die, releasing their toxins into your system for removal. The symptoms disappear after a few days.
