If you take a heaping teaspoon a day of diatomaceous earth (DE) with a suitable liquid it is alleged to have several health benefits least of all introducing pure silica to your body. Some people claim this is a wonder cure for what ails you. DE is the silica skeletons of algae that flourish in both salt and fresh water; these are minute plants that range in size from microns to perhaps one millimeter in size. When they die their skeletons sink to the bottom of the body of water they where they have died. Deposits of DE can build up to being several hundred feet thick as it did in Nevada thousands of years ago.
The minute skeletons of silica that look like Rice Chex cereal possess a very strong negative charge that as many as in the skeletons travels through your stomach or digestive tract can attract and absorb many of the fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides and drug residues. It will also attract E-Coli in various heavy metals. These are trapped in the nooks and crannies of the DE skeleton where they are then passed out of your body.
In addition to taking care of this microscopic clutter it will also remove any of the larger parasites that may be living in your stomach or intestines. The sharp little skeletons will come up and kill any of these parasites so that you will have a healthier body, and much less sickness. The phrase “I just feel better” is heard from many users of DE. The better feeling comes from all the junk that has been removed from your body, and it also gives your immune system a jump.
Diatomaceous Earth is composed of very hard particles that are number seven on the Mohs scale, meaning it is capable of scratching glass in the world of gemstones the same mineral, silica, produces many gems of very as colors and compositions; its overall common name is Quartz.
Because D. is composed of millions of tiny, hard and sharp particles passing through both your small and large investments they literally scrub the walls so that after a few months of taking DE the intestine wall is no longer covered with the normal mucus and molds but is now clean promoting:
“Regular bowel movements (This is the #1 comment that everyone makes about DE)
. This is
especially important as we age. A healthy colon keeps away polyps, cancers, and
ulcers. Today, many are spending hundreds of dollars to do the same thing that
Diatomaceous Earth does. Colon
Many users report increased energy and require less sleep. This is a result of all the food and nutrients being better absorbed into the body. With a coated colon--many nutrients are absorbed.”
Aside from these benefits there are other’s:
