How does food grade diatomaceous earth work?
When Diatomaceous Earth (DE) ( is taken into the body it does its work in 3 different ways:
#1 DE looks like a cylinder/honeycomb full of holes. This cylinder/honeycomb has a very strong negative charge. As the millions of cylinders move through the stomach and digestive tract, they attract and absorb bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide, and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals. These pathogens are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. Additionally, any larger parasites that happen to be in the stomach or digestive tract are "cut up" and killed by the sharp edges of the DE. (Note these sharp edges do not harm the stomach or intestinal wall). All of these activities result in a much healthier body with less sickness.
#2 DE is very hard. On the hardness scale diamonds are a 9, DE is a 7. This is very important, because as those millions of tiny hard and sharp D E cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they "scrub" the walls (Note they do not harm the intestinal wall). After only a few months of taking Diatomaceous Earth, the intestine wall is no longer coated with mucus, gunk, and molds! Thus, DE helps promote regular bowel movements and a healthier colon. This day in age, many people are doing colonix and detox programs, hydro colonic therapy, etc. and DE helps promote this same type of cleansing. People report increased energy, better sleep, and/or needing less sleep. This is a result of the food and nutrients that are taken into the body being better absorbed into the blood stream. A coated, toxic colon does not allow many nutrients from our food to be properly absorbed. A toxic colon and intestinal tract can also result in overweight and obesity, as people lack the proper nutrients their body needs to promote optimum health, so they, and their pets, continue to eat more food in an attempt to obtain the nutrients their bodies are lacking from being toxic.
#3 A small amount of food grade diatomaceous earth is absorbed into the blood stream. As it moves throughout the body they clean and breakup plaque in the blood vessels and also destroy bad fats. As the DE eventually dissolves in the blood, the many health benefits of the silica content are realized.
How do humans take food grade diatomaceous earth? People are always asking me, how to take diatomaceous earth. There is NO one perfect way to take DE. Everyone's' preferences are different. Some people take 1 heaping tsp. in a glass of water prior to each meal, 3x/day and swear by DE's wonderful health benefits keeping acne away, clean clear skin, better sleep, more energy, stronger hair and nails. Others take a heaping tablespoon just before bedtime, figuring it's best to take it away from food because of its detox benefits. Others take it in the morning in their juice. Still others put it in their protein drink, smoothies, morning coffee, etc. Whether you take DE once/day or 3x/day, everyone reports effectiveness and better health. DE doesn't taste bad. Mixed with a full glass of water it really doesn’t have much taste at all to me.Many women advise their hair has never been so soft as it is now since taking DE. Others advise of cleaner clear complexions, when previously they had acne trouble. Still others notice an increase in energy levels and others advise it keeps their bowels clean and helps them sleep better. Some people do notice funny, strange, or gross things in their bowel movements. Some choose to look and others don't want to know. Obviously, this is a personal choice for each of us to make, but the bottom line is it is effective in increasing our health status, as removal of internal parasites and worms will allow us to more properly absorb the nutrients from our food, as the worms/parasites will not be eating our food or sucking our blood.
- DE manufacturers who work in diatomaceous earth mines 5 days/week advise inhaling it is not a problem (though of course, don't be snuffing it). IF you have asthma or some other lung ailment, either wear a mask or be very careful when using food grade diatomaceous earth.
- Do NOT get diatomaceous earth in the eyes. DE is drying to your skin, hands, and feet.
- NEVER use any grade DE other than food grade.
- Some people experience a healing crisis (detox reaction) when beginning DE consumption. If this occurs, reduce the dose, till your body is cleansed, and then increase to the amount.
