Diatomaceous Earth

Home » Fitness » Diatomaceous Earth

Most of what I have researched says to take Diatomaceous Earth on an empty stomach and to make sure you use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth.  I have also read warnings to wear a mask so you do not breath it into your lungs and to be careful not to get it into your eyes.   I started researching this when I met a woman in Sedona, AZ who shared with me how she used it with her livestock and even put it in their water.

diatomaceous earth 2Diatomaceous Earth (often referred to as “DE”) is an off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such as spiders, ticks, cockroaches, ants or fleas) the diatomaceous earth particles stick to an insect and get stuck between its exoskeleton joints. As the insect moves, it gets physically cut up.

Diatomaceous earth is made from the fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms.  Their skeletons are made of a natural substance called silica. Over a long period of time, diatoms accumulated in the sediment of rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans. Today, silica deposits are mined from these areas. Silica is very common in nature and makes up 26% of the earth’s crust by weight. Various forms of silica include sand, emerald, quartz, feldspar, mica, clay, asbestos, and glass.  Food grade diatomaceous earth is 85% silica, and contains some 20 trace minerals. Did you know life can’t exist without silica?  It is essential for the building of healthy bones and teeth, skin, hair, and nails.  As our mineral resources are getting depleted, our food is containing less and less silica.  diatoms (1)

When taken internally, the diatomaceous earth attracts and absorbs positively-charged pathogens into its cylinder.  It absorbs the things we want to stay away from, like viruses, pathogenic fungi and bacteria, heavy metals, prescription drug residues, pesticides, parasites, radiation,  and sweeps them out of our bodies.  Diatomaceous earth is also very hard. On a scale of “hardness”, if diamonds were a 9, diatomaceous earth would be a 7.  This helps us too.  As this powder makes its way through our digestive tract, it gently “scrubs” the packed on residue we have there and sweeps it out of our bodies.  Organisms such as parasites, lurking in our intestines, are sliced up and killed, and swept away when we empty our bowels, and we are left unharmed.

Farmers feed gobs of diatomaceous earth (food grade) to animals in the hopes that it will cure whatever ails them. Many farmers swear that the stuff kills all sorts of worms in their critters.

Health Benefits

If you’re interested in taking diatomaceous earth, we recommend you start with a small amount. If you choose to continue using DE, you can increase the amount slowly until you feel comfortable. All health benefits mentioned below are from customers’ experiences. Your experience may vary from the following list.

  • – better digestive health
  • – more regular bowel movements
  • – detoxifies
  • – healthier colon
  • – reduced cholesterol
  • – better food absorption
  • – better night’s sleep
  • – clearer skin
  • – stronger teeth and gums
  • – healthier hair and nails
  • – less joint and ligament pain
  • – helps arthritis
  • – less sickness
  • – more energy
  • – soothes burns
  • – insect bites
  • – clears skin rashes
  • – less acne
  • – possible antiparasitic
  • – could lower Candida levels

How-To Instructions

1. Get some Juice

Pour 6 to 8 oz of water or juice in a glass. Then add ½ teaspoon of FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth.

2.  Mix it Together

Add the diatomaceous earth into your glass and stir. Diatomaceous earth will not dissolve in the liquid but will be suspended and distributed evenly in the liquid until given the time to settle. Drink the liquid right after stirring.

3.  Be Consistent

Repeat this process daily before a meal. You can increase the amount of diatomaceous earth you use in the liquid until you reach a level that works for you. DiatomaceousEarth.com recommends not exceeding 1 tablespoon per day.

I am NOT a doctor so I recommend that you do your own research to determine whether it is right for you and how you prefer to use it.

Radial and pennate diatoms as seen under a microscope with diffierential contrast  illumination.  Specimen preparation by the famous 19 th century Victorian mounting firm, W. H. Watson and Sons, Ltd. England. Diatoms are protists which have shells sculpted out of silicon oxide.  After the living protist has perished the shells remain.  These clear shells are comprised of two halves called valves.  Diatom shells and their corresponding patterns respond to beautifully and artfully to a variety of colorful microscopic illumination techniques.  Many are so intricately detailed that they have long been used as test objects for microscope objectives. There are two major classes of diatoms: centric and pennate.  Centric diatoms have patterns arranged radially, around a central point, known as radial symmetry. Pennate diatoms have bilateral symmetry, left and right matching halves, and are generally needle or boat shaped. When alive, diatoms are brownish green in color a live almost everywhere, from open waters to quiet shallows.  They may live alone or in colonies.   In the mid to late 19th century Victorian era mounters created patterns of them on microscope slides using micro manipulators. Diatoms are a favorite of microscopists for their beauty.  Originally they were used for testing the resolving power of objectives. These are highly sought after.
