When you suffer from IBD, UC, Crohn’s this can lead to a whole gamut of cascading problems which is important to be on the look out for.
Cascading problems such as:
- Malabsorption of nutrients, causing malnutrition (often undiagnosed)
- B12 Deficiency, which if it goes undiagnosed can lead to pernicious anemia
- Inadequate Vitamin D3 levels, leaving your immune system at risk
- Ineffective or low levels of good intestinal gut flora, putting your immune system at risk
- Bone Density Loss, Osteopenia, or Osteoporosis
- Problems with Concentration
- Improper Digestion
- Leaky Gut Syndrome
- Intestinal Permeability
- Extra-Intestinal Symptoms of Joint Pains, Skin Rashes, Eye Problems
- Depression and Anxiety
- Hair Loss
- And of course digestive issues of: Diarrhea, Constipation, Bloating, Gas, Cramping, Abdominal Pain, Distention, just to name of few of the many symptoms
Has your Doctor told you to be on the lookout for these Cascading Problems?
So, what can you do about these Cascading Problems?
1) By being proactive and being aware, you’ll be on the lookout for these problems before they occur
2) By being aware of these problems, you’ll be able to see the symptoms and know what they correlate to
3) By putting in place certain checks and balances, you’ll be in a position to assess these problems
4) By taking some simple steps, you’ll be able to pre-empt some of these problems
Now that you know which cascade of problems to be on the lookout for, what can you do to prevent them? Let’s get through each one, and see how to pre-empt them:
A) Malabsorption of nutrients, causing malnutrition (often undiagnosed)
B) B12 Deficiency, which if it goes undiagnosed can lead to pernicious anemia
C) Inadequate Vitamin D3 Levels, leaving your Immune System at risk
D) Ineffective or low levels of good intestinal gut flora, putting your immune system at risk
E) Bone Density Loss, Osteopenia, or Osteoporosis
F) Fatigue, and
G) Problems with Concentration
H) Improper Digestion
I) Leaky Gut Syndrome, and
J) Intestinal Permeability and
K) Extra-Intestinal Symptoms of Joint Pains, Skin Rashes, Eye Problems
L) Depression and Anxiety
N) Hair Loss
The reasons for the HAIR LOSS is multi-fold: the disease process itself, side effects of medications, malabsorption of nutrients
One IMPORTANT, SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE FIX is: TAKING DIATOMACEOUS EARTH (Human Grade)
Let me tell you what happened to me regarding hair loss:
After 4 months of waiting, I finally made an appointment with my hairdresser. She sat me in the chair, asked me how I was doing, started the “what are we doing today” chat, and then proceeded to look at my hair.
She said “You know there’s lots of new hair growth all over your scalp. There are fine little hairs growing in areas that were previously barren. What are you doing differently?“
And I answered: “That’s great news, so the DE is working! That means in another year or so, I’m going to have a fuller head of hair.”
Interestingly enough, I’ve been noticing new hair growth all over: legs, armpits, and pubic areas too. So, it makes sense that if I’m growing hair in those areas, that it’s happening on my head too! How exciting!
And it’s all due to the wonders of food grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE)!
What is DE (food grade) and what can it do for you?
Diatomaceous Earth (Food Grade) *
What Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth Does In Your Body
This page explains the mechanisms of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth within the human body to achieve the many health benefits that consumers have experienced. (See the testimonials!).
Diatomaceous Earth Health Benefits: Why and How
1) As you can see from the picture of Diatomaceous Earth – (magnified 7000 times) – it looks like a cylinder full of holes – kind of like Rice Chex Cereal. This cylinder has a very strong negative charge. As these millions of cylinders move through the stomach and digestive tract, they attract and absorb fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides, and drug residues, E.coli, and heavy metals. These are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. In addition, any larger parasites that happen to be in the stomach or digestive tract are “cut up” and killed by the sharp edges of the Diatomaceous Earth. All of these activities result in a much healthier body with less sickness. We often hear the phrase “I just feel better” with our Diatomaceous Earth users. This better feeling comes from all the “junk” being removed from the body and by giving the immune system the “jump start” it needs.
2) Diatomaceous Earth is quite hard. On the hardness scale where diamonds are a 9, Diatomaceous Earth is a 7. This is very important because as those millions of tiny hard and sharp Diatomaceous Earth cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they “scrub” the walls. After only a few months of taking Diatomaceous Earth, the intestine wall is no longer coated with mucus and molds but CLEAN!! The advantages of this are several:
a) Regular bowel movements (This is the #1 comment everyone makes about DE.)
b) Healthier colon. This is especially important as we get older. A clean healthy colon keeps away polyps, cancers, and ulcers. Today, many are spending thousands of dollars to get colonics to do the same thing as Diatomaceous Earth does.
c) Many users report increased energy and needing less sleep. This is a result of all the food and nutrients that are taken in being better absorbed into the blood stream. With a coated colon–many nutrients never get absorbed.
3) A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica. One of the benefits of Silica is that it helps to destroy bad fats. Everyone we know who takes Diatomaceous Earth has lowered their cholesterol by 40-50 points, and they are amazed at how their high blood pressure goes down. Go to the page on “Human Use” and review all of the benefits of silica to the body. These are the reported improvements, as seen by those who take DE:
Sore joints and ligaments feel better
Skin clears up (acne, age spots, psoriasis)
Hair and nails are stronger and grow faster
Stronger teeth and gums
Healthier respiratory tract–less coughing
Menopause produces fewer symptoms
Healthier urinary tract
* It is very important to denote Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) from non-Food or Commercial Grade DE.
Food Grade DE is good for you, your body, your cells, and your organs!
Commercial Grade DE is used in pools and is toxic.
The DE we are talking about here is ONLY FOOD GRADE DE!
WHY am I taking DE?
1. To increase my Bone Density, and ensure maximum rebuilding of my bones and bone density, as per this study, Silicon and Bone Health (click on link):
“…Mechanisms are not clear but it has been suggested, based on the evidence above, that silicon is involved in bone formation through the synthesis and/or stabilization of collagen. Collagen has an important structural role in animals contributing to the architecture and resilience of bone and connective tissue. It is the most abundant protein in bone matrix conferring flexibility and, with elastin, is a major component of connective tissues which is found in skin, cartilage, tendons and arteries, for example. High levels of Si were found to be strongly bound to connective tissues and its components, namely glycoaminoglycans, polysaccharides and mucopolysaccharides (82) implying an integral role for Si. Quite how Si may be involved in collagen synthesis and or its stabilisation is still not established….Silicon has also been found at the mineralisation front of growing bone (18) suggesting also an involvement in early calcification/mineralization of bone matrix.”
Clearly it seems Silica (and therefore DE) plays a major role in the mechanism behind building bone, together with the help of Calcium, Vitamin D3, K2, and Strontium (as we have discussed in prior Updates).
2. To help restore healthy growth of hair, and restore skin (see reference below)
3. To help in digestive health
As per webmd.com (click on link) :
“…Silicon is a mineral. Silicon supplements are used as medicine. Silicon is used for weak bones (osteoporosis), heart disease and stroke (cardiovascular disease), Alzheimer’s disease, hair loss, and improving hair and nail quality. It is also used for improving skin healing; and for treating sprains and strains, as well as digestive system disorders.
Do not confuse silicon with silicone. Silicone is the name of a group of materials resembling plastic that contain silicon, oxygen, and other chemicals. Silicone is used to make breast implants, medical tubing, and a variety of other medical devices.
How does it work?
A clear biological function for silicon in humans has not been established. There is some evidence, though, that silicon might have a role in bone and collagen formation…”
Diatomaceous Earth – Human Use
On this page, we have categorized some of the results from testimonial reports that we have reviewed regarding Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth human health benefits, and wherever possible between this page and our “How DE Works” page, we try to reflect the science behind the testimonials. Of course, most actual in depth health related studies are initiated and controlled by the pharmaceutical industry, and why should those companies study the value of health remedies found in nature that could actually hurt their bottom line?
So here, we will endeavor to discuss the results that DE users have experienced by taking a heaping tablespoon of DE in their favorite juice or liquid on a daily basis without the benefit of an industry sponsored study. For more background on how Diatomaceous Earth works within the human body to create the benefits related on this page, see How DE Works.
Some people react with great skepticism regarding human consumption of DE, and while it is not allowed by government regulators for distributers to make claims about DE’s use as a human health supplement, we do hope to help illuminate the logical reasoning behind the health claims of CONSUMERS regarding the use of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for human health.
Of 600 DE deposits in the USA, only 4 rate in purity by FDA standards to be “Food Grade”.
For better health, people like me and my family take one or two tablespoons of Diatomaceous Earth in a liquid every day. Many people benefit from just one teaspoon daily! Some mix it with juice and others mixe it with just water. Other options are mixing the DE with soda pop, juice, or whatever liquid you prefer. Some mix DE in protein shakes, applesauce or yogurt. This exceptional Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is pure. There is no actual flavor or taste to it.
Since DE does not dissolve, stirring the mixture several times as you drink it will prevent settling. Some folks experience higher energy levels, so it is probably best not to take just before sleeping. Not to worry about taking too much – any excess silica not needed by the body is naturally eliminated through the kidneys and intestines… but we must find our own comfortable levels.
Remarkable Diatomaceous Earth health benefits through Silica
As previously noted, like most wonderful natural products, this product requires an FDA Disclaimer: “This information is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Discussion of Diatomaceous Earth health benefits is based solely on personal experience and testimony shared by individual DE users and this company cannot market or label DE as a human health supplement with specific medical claims.” Having said that, we look at what consumers say about DE and at evidence of DE’s important cleansing properties and value as a rich source of Silica.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) has been reported to absorb methyl mercury, E. coli, endotoxins, viruses (including poliovirus), organophosphate pesticide residues, and drug residues. DE is a natural organic colon cleanser and detoxifier. This cleansing and detoxification alone has a myriad of positive effects in the human body. Mechanisms are cited on “How DE Works” page. Adding to this is the widespread deficiency in human dietary sources of what is called “the most important trace element in human health” – Silica, and how rich DE is in this substance, we begin to understand the basis of the health benefits that so many have attested to. Only a trace amount of the DE silica is absorbed into the blood stream, and just that amount is a substantial gain for the user.
A growing number of people count beneficial human side effects of Diatomaceous Earth and SILICA as being nothing short of vital to their well being and exhibit genuine devotion toward its use. The only cautionary side effect that we have found relating to Food Grade DE has to do with direct inhalation and is essentially the same caution that is advised when handling baby powder. DE is a very fine powder.
Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is 89% Silica.
It was established in the 1940s that life can’t exist without Silica. More recently, in her book “Water & Salt” Dr. Barbara Hendel states: “Silica is the most important trace element in human health.” Silica plays an important role in many bodily functions and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption.
The average human body holds approximately seven grams of silica, needing significantly more silica than even important minerals such as iron. Most people are, in fact, silica deficient. Among other things, enough silica in the body is vital enough for calcium absorbtion to allow calcium supplements to work. If Silica deficient, as is the case in the vast majority of us, calcium supplementation can even be a negative. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is an excellent natural and organic source of silica.
Other Reported Health Benefits of Silica / DE Include: Blood Pressure control, Cholesterol control, Osteoperosis relief, Weight Loss, healthier Skin, Hair, Nails, Teeth & Gums, more Energy, Bacteria eradicator, Mucous decrease, Anti-Aging, Urinary Infections eradication, Headache relief.
To Keep Reading On For A More Detailed DE Benefits,
Here’s what consumers have to say about Diatomaceous Earth:
Hair That Grows
Hair is nature’s greatest beauty enhancer. Hair deserves to be pampered. Hair at 90 micrograms per gram is almost as rich in silica as are healthy bones, which contain 100 micrograms per gram. Silica is a major component of hair. Using a good silica supplement should be part of your ongoing hair care program for revitalizing hair. Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures beautiful shine, luster and strength.
More Reported Benefits Of Diatomaceous Earth:
- Silica lowers bad cholesterol and raises good
- Silica fades age spots
- Silica stimulates metabolism for higher energy levels
- Diatomaceous Earth has a negative charge and bacteria has a positive charge. It is believed that Diatomaceous Earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in its honeycomb shaped skeletal form.
- Silica supplementation helps repair and maintain vital lung tissue and protects them from pollution. By maintaining or restoring the elasticity of lung tissue, silica reduces inflammation in bronchitis.
- It acts as a cough decreasing agent. Silica tones the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx, larynx) and reduces swelling because of its positive action on the lymphatic system.
- Silica supplementation keeps menopause free of stress and helps to prevent many unwanted side effects of menopause
- Silica works with other antioxidants to prevent premature aging and to preserve youthfulness.
- Silica can help prevent kidney stones and heal infections of the urinary tract. It is a natural diuretic which can increase excretion of urine by 30 percent, thus flushing the water-excreting system and restoring normal function to these vital organs.
- The presence of sufficient silica in the intestines will reduce inflammation of the intestinal tract. It can cause disinfection in the case of stomach and intestinal mucus and ulcers. Silica can prevent or clear up diarrhea and its opposite, constipation.
- Silica will help normalize hemorrhoidal tissues.
- In regulating and normalizing the bowels, silica has a pleasant side effect; it can alleviate lower back pain, which often troubles the elderly.
- Silica proves effective with female discharge, abscesses and ulcers in the genital area and cervix, as well as mastitis (especially for breast feeding mothers).
- The intake of silica acts as a supportive treatment for inflammation of the middle ear. Because of the beneficial effectiveness on the lymphatic system, silica can be used for swelling of the lymph nodes in the throat.
- Has anti-inflammatory disinfecting, absorbing and odor binding effects.
- Silica can normalize circulation and regulate high blood pressure (hypertension).
- Silica can decrease vertigo, headache, tinnitus (buzzing of the ears) and insomnia.
- Silica can help diabetes by promoting synthesis of elastase inhibitor by the pancreas.
- Silica can help arterial disease by strengthening the blood vessels. Studies confirm that with age, silica disappears from the aorta, the heart’s key blood vessel, thus weakening its critical connective tissue and resulting in a greater cardiac risk.
- Silica can help prevent Tuberculosis.
- By improving the elasticity of the joints, silica helps rheumatism.
- Silica has inhibitory effects on coronary diseases.
- Silica can help avoiding or alleviating Alzheimer’s disease by preventing the body from absorbing aluminum and may flush out aluminum from the tissues. Silica can stimulate the immune system.
Most who use Diatomaceous Earth mixed with a juice or liquid say that they use one to two tablespoons daily.

How do I take my Diatomaceous Earth (DE)?
If you put it in water, it tastes like Dirt! (Hence the DIRTY Secret!)
When I first started to take it, I started with 1 heaping teaspoon in a glass of water every morning for 1 week.
It’s best to start off slowly because DE can detox the body of Candida, parasites, etc…
At the second week, I went up to 2 teaspoons per day ( 1 in the am, 1 in pm).
At the third week, I went up to 3 teaspoons per day ( 1 in am, 2 in pm).
At the fourth week, I went up to 2 Tablespoons per day ( 1 in am, 1 in pm).
Here are my results with DE:
I feel great, my joint and bones pains are much, much less.
I sleep soundly at night.
My hair is silky and my hair is growing in places where I had bald spots!
My previously very dry skin is now so soft.
And my occassional bouts of constipation have gone away with DE!
And it’s dirt cheap! I was skeptical until I tried it.
What have you got to lose?
Testimonials ( other than mine!)
In the process of placing my second order, I wanted to send an email regarding how Diatomaceous Earth worked for me. I am no longer awakened in the middle of the night with hip pain, but the first thing my husband and I noticed was not being tired all the time. Having energy throughout the day, and not crashing midafternoon equals more projects, activities etc accomplished at the end of the day. We have shared this product with some friends. One of our friends is a painter by trade. He has (had) arthritic pain in his pinky finger which he could not bend to touch his palm without excrutiating pain, making it hard to work . After taking DE for about 11/2 weeks-he can now bend it with much, much less pain. Another friend who is balding on top, went to his barber. As the barber was giving him his usual flattop haircut he asked him what he’s been doing becau se his hair was growing! Needless to say our friend is very excited about this product, which is why I am about to order 50lbs. One more thing. Carpenter Ants DO NOT like this stuff. I sprinkled it around the foundation of my home and have not seen an ant anywhere!! Thank you for offering this product and for keeping it so very affordable!!” – M. Novinsky – L.I., NY
“A “miracle” in my life
I have to tell you that Diatomaceous Earth is a ‘miracle’ in my life. For the past 5 years or so, my whole right side has been in pain. The last few weeks, the pain was excruciating. I had never contemplated hip replacement surgery, but the pain was so bad I would have had to do something if the DE had not started relieving the pain. I walked with a complete limp on the right side and could not bend down nor lift my right leg up to put on a shoe. After only 7 days, my husband and family can not believe what DE has done for me. Looking forward to continued healing the next several weeks.” Thank-you, Gabrielle
“Thanks for being there!
Now, about my DE. Been on a rounded tablespoon a day for 3 weeks this Friday. And I can already say, “Where have you been all my life”?! My back ache was gone in 3 days, been bad for about 3 weeks prior. Dry skin in now shiny, no flakes. And had trouble all this year with right knee locking up and very painful, down on knees working in my gardens, well, that has stopped, too!!! AND, I got rid of flea infestation at my sisters house she had been fighting with chemicals the last 6 or 8 months!! Fantastic stuff!! Thanks for being there!” Sincerely, Larry
I want to thank you for selling such an excellent product. I have been using diatomaceous earth for at least 6 months and have noticed a tremendous change in my health. I am an athletic person and go to the gym 5 days per week in addition to my daily cardio routine. I am 56 and haven’t felt this good in 5 years. I have arthritis in my shoulders, hands and feet. I no longer feel pain in any of those joints when I weight lift. I seem to have more energy during the day which has enabled me to extend my workout time. I’ve also noticed my hair and nails growing faster and fatty nodules have disappeared. This product works for me and I am so grateful to the company. Thank you!” Ralph in Florida
“Stunned by the results
Dear Friends, After less than two weeks of taking “earth,” I’m stunned by the results. My sister said to take it slow. I took one treatment daily for three days and then increased it to two treatments daily. I try to take it earlier in the day as it gives me too much energy before bedtime. Two days ago, I awoke in the middle of the night and noticed something. I had been suffering with severe pain in the bottoms of my heels. It was so severe that I couldn’t put any weight on it. People would have to help me up and down stairs so I wouldn’t fall. I realized in the middle of the night that I didn’t have anymore pain in my heels. Unbelieveable, because I have been suffering with this heel condition for two years or more.Thanks so much. I’ll be telling my friends.” – Julie
“I do have a personal testimony to the awesome effects that DE has provided me. I have suffered from hip pain due to severe arthritis and the recommendation from my doctor was hip replacement surgery. I am 51 years old and lead a very active and physical lifestyle up until two years ago. Golf and tennis were no longer possible due to the pain I received during that type of activity. I finally gave in and scheduled my hip replacement surgery back in October for December 27th 2007. At the time of scheduling my surgery my son-in -law told me that he had family in New Mexico that suffered from severe arthritis and that Diatomaceous Earth had cured them. Of course being the huge skeptic that I am , I decided to research everything about DE and came to the educated conclusion , ” What the hell do I have to loose”. I started in October taking what I call the “DIRT” twice daily and within 2 weeks I started noticing a difference in how I felt. More energy. less pain in my joints and in my hip. Within 4 weeks I was 90% pain free. I called my doctor and postponed the surgery just in case this was a fluke because I had a huge golf trip planned for Arizona on Jan 18, 2007. Living in Colorado didn’t provide any opportunity’s to golf so the true test would be to see how my hip would do with 5 rounds scheduled for 3 days. Now, I am 51 years old and we are talking 90 holes of golf in three days. I haven’t golfed that many holes in the past two years because it hurt so much. We’ll we just got back from a beautiful weekend in Scottsdale, Az and I golfed like a rock star. I hung in there with the best of our group and I was “PAIN FREE”. The true test for the effects of DE were absolutely incredible. Needless to say I told my doctor to shove it and he won’t be operating on me and “THE DIRT ” and I are best friends. I hope you include this real testimony as to the Miracle of Mother Nature.(Diatomaceous Earth). “ – Andy Berard – Denver, Co.
“I am writing this in hopes that someone will read this and be helped like I am. I tried diatomaceous earth, using about 3 heaping tablespoons in a cup of water, to appease my husband. He said it would be good for my hair. It doesn’t taste bad, it actually is good. However a week later we were driving to the store; I looked down and noticed I had nails. I have bitten my nails since I can remember. I went out and bought polish. I could not believe how fast they were growing and the urge to bite them was no longer there. My hair was also thinning in front and it is now filled in. When my 25-year old sister was pregnant, she craved chalk. Her husband would actually go to the store and buy her chalk to eat. I gave her some of the diatomaceous earth and she loved it. She quit eating chalk and took the diatomaceous earth every day.” – C.G., Pagosa Springs, CO
|“Trip to another country
In September I went to Croatia. I experienced extreme sleepiness during and after my trip. I thought I had contracted a parasite, since I was drinking the water and later found out the water was not that clean. It was the same sleepiness I had experienced on my trip to Russia and I figured I had contracted Giardia, a parasite common in Russia. When I came home I began an aggressive herbal de-worming program, which is the same program I offered my clients. This program consisted of taking cloves, black walnut, wormwood combination and a product balled Rascal. I stayed on this treatment faithfully for three full weeks and even did higher dosages than was recommended in the directions. I figured I was relieved of any critters hanging on to my intestines. Right? WRONG! Two months later I went to a clinic and had live blood cell analysis to determine my condition. I was shocked to discover parasites in the blood. How could this be? I was following a program that was offered by some of the top parasatologists in the country. An angel came into my life recently. She was a client doing my supervised fasting retreat I offer in my residence. Bonnie GAVE me a container of Diatomaceous Earth and said “try it for you and your dogs”. What have I got to lose but a few wigglies, right? Hopefully! Guess what? After only 5 days of taking the recommended dose I passed a 5 inch creature determined by lab analysis to be a round worm. Not me! Not beautiful, charming, squeaky clean diet Millan! Yes. I guess they are right when they say 90 to 95 percent of us have parasites and worms. You see, they are usually a-symptomatic, so you could have them for years and never know it!”
“A little over 4 years ago I was involved in a bad car accident. My head hit the windshield and I was in the hospital for several days. Even after countless tests and “suggestions” the medical field has not been able to give me any relief to my daily headaches. I had pretty much come to terms with the fact that this was something I would endure my whole life. 3 week ago I started taking Diatomaceous Earth. After the 1st week, I noticed my headaches were GONE!!! I don’t know how it works—I don’t even care—all I know is that I can go through the day now pain free. I was so excited that I took some over to my ageing mom and had her start taking it. I went back about a week later and the 1st thing she said to me was “listen to this” she breathed in a deep breath from her nose and then let it out through her nose. She was also very excited as she has had blocked sinus for years. She also noticed that the skin sores by her bra line on her back were gone. I then took some over to my daughter who has acne. Her face is better now than it ever has been. I am a believer in Diatomaceous Earth!!!” – Pam – Nebraska
“I am a natural skeptic about “cure all” products like this, but was given a free jug of it if I would just try it. I suffer from arthritis all over my body and figured I had nothing to lose. After just 2 weeks of taking it every day, I am a believer!!! Not only do my joints not hurt anymore, but they have even stopped popping every time I bend them. I just generally feel better all over!! My Cholesterol has went from close to 500 down to 160!! I no longer take lipitor at all. I have gotten several of my co-workers taking Diatomaceous Earth now and they all love it also!!” – Leann – Nebraska
“…to date, in addition to enhanced “regularity”, the most noticeable effect, since I’ve been taking the DE, is a significant decrease in joint and/or muscle/ligament pain in and around the joints, including areas where I have arthritis.” – Tom – Nebraska
“Took 20 Years off my Age!!”
I started taking diatomaceous earth. I take about a rounded tablespoon in the morning in oatmeal, grits, ice cream, etc.. It has helped with my joints, not nearly as much pain. My left lung was almost useless, and hurt all the time. After taking DE for about two weeks I was able to cough up all the crud in my lung, and could breath much better. I felt like it took 20 years off my age. My face is clearer and smother. I could not believe that something that kills bugs could be so good for humans. I highly recommend this product.”
|“Heart Problems Better!
I have been using your DE on my dogs for years. I know I have kept them parasite free by using this. I also use it for ants whenever they are a problem & they are gone. I use it for our flea problem too on the dogs. However I myself used to use the DE but never regularly – I then got scared to take the DE as I found out I have systemic Scleroderma that they say silica is contradicted to ingest or inhale as it will make your disease worse but I knew it was good for my BP when I took this. So for the last couple of years my BP issues despite med’s has gotten worse & my Scleroderma has affected my heart & arteries my heart rate has gone up into the low hundreds sitting & within a few minutes of walking I would exceed my max. heart rate of 135. I was diagnosed with Left side diastolic dysfunction or L. heart failure & I have also Pulmonary venous hypertension & have trouble breathing with light exertion that slows me down way too often & fatigue of course! So I have sat & wondered if the doc’s could be wrong as they don’t know that much about this disease & I have only gotten worse following their advice. I then went digging deeper as for any evidence other than from someone who sells DE as most don?t know as frankly Scleroderma is not that common! I found then the opposite that it’s a lack of silica in the body as we age that makes the arteries & organs stiffen & that Scleroderma is improved with DE! I felt this made some logical sense as this started off with hard to control hypertension that lead to this further complication of this disease. Control the vascular & improve that & the blood flow & you can improve the quality of life with this disease from the damage. As a experiment as my skin is VERY telling if I am getting worse for the Scleroderma – I did just a week of DE – my BP immediately responded & I didn’t have to take any BP med or I could on some days in the aftern. cut my BP pill in 1/2 & get a better reading with the DE than I got from a full BP pill! I also felt better a bit more energy. My heart rate lowered in #’s too – something NO medicine has gotten my bottom BP Diastolic down OR my heart rate AKA pulse down at all only my top #! I went off the DE on purpose for 2 wk’s & my BP was back up & my Heart rate up – so much so I had a bad episode that the doc could not help. I felt OK do I want to die or find my own way out of this in getting help? I felt DE was & so far is my answer. Today my BP after drinking 2 Tbps’s of DE in water was 2 hr’s later 125 over 83 & my heart rate was 77- that may not sound fab. to some but my #’s have been 125 to 140 over 98 with a heart rate of 110! This is only my 2nd day back on the DE. As to the Scleroderma issue my skin softened in lesions while on the DE being off for 2 wk’s my skin was back to looking worse again – so … to me as long as I can see relief with my heart in my daily BP like this & my skin with more energy – who cares why it works it does. My dogs for 6 yr?s are living proof it does not hurt them. I have been to Chicago to the best medical there for my heart & lungs & to Nashville to Vanderbilt to see the top doc’s who had nothing but trying to relieve some of the fluid around my heart but it did nothing to help my heart rate or my BP to come down. For me this natural method works & that is all the proof I need is seeing these numbers. My 10 lb bag is getting low & while I would rather ONLY buy in the larger 10 lb bags or more I will be travelling out of state by airline & I need a smaller bottle with the product name on this – putting white DE in a unmarked bottle by myself from a larger bag would look like it could be a drug so … Thank you I am a believer!”
“DE Cured My Food Intolerances!!
To my new favorite people, A couple of months ago I very suddenly became allergic to EVERYTHING! I was losing around half a pound a day and was basically starving to death. I could only tolerate lamb, carrots, beets and a certain brand of imported spring water. Even those things I would sometimes react to. After multiple ER visits, a frustrating visit to an allergist (where I at least got an epi-pen) and no answers from any of the doctors I was in contact with, I started researching causes online. For awhile it seemed like Histamine Intolerance was my problem, along with a severe (anaphylaxis) reaction to any sulfites or sulfurous foods or supplements – though there were high histamine foods I didn’t react to, and low histamine foods that I did. I tried supplementing with vitamins and minerals, but nothing was helping. I found information about DE and read everything I could find about it. Since so many of the issues DE addresses (parasites, candida, heavy metal and pesticide toxicity, infections, etc) were on the list of things that could cause a sudden onset of intolerances, I ordered some right away. My only regret is that I waited for almost a week before starting it. I had a severe reaction that had us driving to the nearest ER 18 miles away on a Sunday night around midnight (I hadn’t even eat anything!), and the next morning I started taking the DE – just a teaspoon, first thing on an empty stomach. It’s been almost 2 weeks now and I haven’t had a reaction since taking it. I worked up to a heaping tablespoon within a few days and the horrific colors and textures that were “flushed” out of me in that first week were truly disturbing. I can now eat and drink anything I want to with no reaction – I can’t believe it actually worked, and SO QUICKLY!!! You can’t imagine my relief, not to mention my husband’s, that I’m able to eat and function normally again! I’m a food blogger and recipe developer so food is not only my love, but also my livelihood! Thank you so much for this amazing product! I’m telling everybody I know about it, and already have friends and family ordering it for its amazing health benefits! I am so grateful to you and your product – I had read all of the testimonials before buying it but I still wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t experienced it myself! I will be a loyal customer for life! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!”
I have been using diatomaceous earth just a week and have had great results. 5 years ago I had a mass discovered in the lower left quadrant of my colon and had many tests and seen many doctors with no results. The pain and bloating had been so bad here in recent weeks that I could not tolerate it. My abdominal bloating was about 4 times the size that it should be and now after 7 short days it has decreased to half the size it was.I would like to thank you and your company for doing what doctors and medication could not. I have also started to see many other benefits too many to list that have greatly helped with my overall health and wellbeing. Thank you so much and I will be and already have been sending customers to your site so they too can discover this wonderful product and company like myself. I have also stopped using my prostate medication and no longer need catheters due to this great product. If only I had discovered this sooner I would have saved much money and ti me and been enjoying life instead of being enslaved to my bed.”
“I have been on DE for 6 months now and I just had my lab work done. My triglycerides have been reduced from 495 down to 203. I have so much more energy and my hair and nails are growing so much better. My husband has had high blood pressure and since being on the dirt, his BP is now in the normal range. It has also helped with my varicose veins and I no longer have any pain from them..” – Rhonda from Louisiana.
I think it’s very important to be aware of these Cascading Problems, and specifically, Hair Loss, so that you can be pro-active and to pre-empt further problems. It’s unlikely your doctor has made you aware of these.
