My First Two Weeks of Ingesting Diatomaceous Earth

diatomaceous earth

I’ve known about diatomaceous earth for years, but I had no idea what it was. I remember eons ago some dude was telling me I need to ingest diatomaceous earth for health. I looked at this dude and pondered for a minute, and the only word that came into my mind was Insanity. I thought to myself if this is the kind of crazy crap people are doing, they need to really lay off of illegal narcotics. I mean who the hell is going to eat dirt for crying out loud.

But recently a friend of mine, someone who I know is sane and is not using hallucinogens told me I need to ingest diatomaceous earth. I didn’t know what to think, but I listened to what she had to say and what she told me blew me away.

You see this friend has been fighting hashimotos hypothyroidism for 4 years, not only that she became addicted to the prescribed hypothyroid drug synthroid. She told me she found about diatomaceous earth from a friend who was using it to rid her house of a flea infestation, she started to google more information on it including watching youtube videos. That’s when she found articles and youtube videos talking about the human health benefits of ingesting diatomaceous earth.

After days of researching it, she decided to try it.

She started drinking a half teaspoon then worked up to a tablespoon of diatomaceous earth every night. She took it 2 hours after her last meal, apparently you have to take this stuff on an empty stomach.

What she told me next blew me away.

She was able to not only stop taking synthroid, but her addiction to the drug disappeared. Her hair became as thick as a wolf, and her skin became bright and smooth. All of this happened within 2 months.

If I didn’t see it with my own eyes I wouldn’t believe it. I knew at that very moment I needed to try this stuff out.

So what is diatomaceous earth?

It’s 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.

What does it do?

It detoxes your body from parasites, bacteria, viruses, heavy metals and toxins. You may experience what is commonly known as “die off” symptoms when the parasites release toxins in your blood when they die, and sometimes people get mild flu-like symptoms for a couple days. This is a side effect of toxins leaving your body, not a side effect of DE itself. You can counteract these symptoms by drinking lots of water, preferably naturally alkaline spring water, as well as activated charcoal. I would also take a milk thistle supplement to aid the liver in expunging these toxins. Jarrow is one of the best Milk Thistle supplements, get it here on Amazon.com. You can also buy Organic Milk Thistle Root in vegan pills on my website here.

How does it work?

Food Grade Diatomaceous earth is not harmful to people or animals. It causes insects & parasites to dry out and die by absorbing the oils and fats from the cuticle of their skin or exoskeleton.

So what happened when I ingested it?

I started with half teaspoon the first night, I put it in a cup of spring water, stirred it a little and drank it on an empty stomach. I’d say about an hour later I felt like I was going to die. My kidneys felt like they were being stabbed, I felt weak, I felt like I was poisoned. I was obviously experiencing heavy parasite “die-off” symptoms also known as Herxheimer reaction.

I drank lots of water before I went to bed.

Now when I awoke, that was a whole different epiphany. It’s hard to explain, but when I woke up I had this incredible peace emanating throughout my body. Now I meditate multiple times a week on the beach, but I’m not talking about a peace coming from the mind, this was coming from my body, and I don’t quite recall ever feeling like this.

I felt slight discomfort from the die-off symptoms every other day for the first week, but nothing like the first night.

My digestion became lighting quick, no matter what I ate I felt no pressure or bloating in my stomach. I could go to the gym or meditate right after eating without any discomfort. In the first week, my hair started to really grow, and the thinning part of my scalp became full of hair follicles. My facial skin became softer and shiny, a few friends even made comments about how my skin was radiant.

Now the real plus was I was dropping weight like sweat, my love handles are almost gone and my belly is almost flat, all of this happened in the span of two weeks.

What I really want to see is the grey hair I have turn black, now that all of these parasites etc are gone or almost gone, my body will be able to absorb nutrition properly so it can regenerate itself on a cellular level.

You can get the Food Grade Fresh Water Diatomaceous Earth that I am using from me, I am now selling my own brand on my Etsy store here.

Hi! Thanks! Wow definitely keep me updated.

Andrea April 10, 2019 - 12:07 am

I had the same experience as you and your friend. I have also never experienced a bad side effect except the initial die off or herx reaction if I stop taking and restart again. I also aids my body’s natural detox by taking milk thistle, drinking herbal teas like detox and smooth move, I take liquid chlorophyll, and if I start a rigorous parasite cleanse with it if I was off it did a while I do epsom salt baths and sauna steam room stuff. I definitely use activated charcoal as well at first and drink a lot of water. I think more clearly now have more energy sleep way better. It also helped me stop having anxiety and quit my antidepressant Wellbutrin when I wanted to get off of it I couldn’t at first because if anxiety. I don’t know how DE could have assisted this but it did. So keep sharing. Also I don’t know which brand you like but I like the Lumino brand it looks clean and white.

I love your articulate speaking style!..Showed my daughter your DE YouTube testimonial. She’s 26 and has been dealing with ocd and panic attacks and anxiety disorder since she was preschool age. Started zooloft in middle school when she felt that germs were in everything including her own saliva. This helped but the disorder was right under the surface which included some movement disorder ( facial ticks , hand movements)…At 20 her hair thinned , headaches, air in stomach, nightmares, insomnia. She stopped all gluten. This stopped the panic attacks. She’s down to 25 mill of zooloft but still has ticks and some movement disorder in the head and neck. She’s cut out most sugar but not all. I told her about DE and probiotics. Shes married and wants to have children but has to get off the zooloft. Over the course of five years she went from 125 mill to 25 because antidepressants are so difficult to wean from. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. We have seen many MDs who just want her to take more drugs. Thank you. You are putting so much good out into the world!

Hi LA Wilder, DE is fantastic for a lot of things. Please look into amino acids for helping with anxiety and getting off of antidepressants, with your doctor’s supervision of course.

Natural Calm by Natural Vitality is fantastic to take at night to help with sleep and help your muscles and mind relax. Here is a link to it for amazon… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000OQ2DL4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_cLCXCbDCE51MG
I’m not a medical professional, but this stuff has helped me personally and a lot of friends I have recomended it to. I hope that helps! God bless!

Thank you so much for your video and blog. The information is great but what I really liked was the product specific recommendations. I ordered all three just now. Usually YouTube vids provide info but leave you hanging when it comes to what product to buy.
I have psoriatic arthritis which, all of the sudden, is progressing very rapidly. Almost every joint has now been affected along many muscles/ tendons. In addition to the usual arthritic pain and stiffness, my entire body feels like it’s on fire. I’m so looking forward to getting started! Thank you again!

Hello there, I have for the last 7 yrs been going thru what looks like eczema (but not a real bad break out, I itch like something is biting me) and now have hand eczema. Was also told I have Rosacea and I break out after eating almost anything. I’m very sensitive to the sun but allergic to sunscreen. I read about DE years ago and was wonder if this would help. I would really like my skin back and to be able to eat again. How should I go about taking this. I would like a step by step on when to take what to eat etc. Please help

Sean Martu June 7, 2019 - 7:39 pm

I have an article I wrote on rosacea also YouTube video. I suggest you read my article on milk thistle and the liver, I definitely believe you need to detox your liver. I just did a video on how to cure dyshidrotic eczema using diatomaceous earth I made a video on that also you should watch it.

Rwanda Fisher July 12, 2019 - 4:04 pm

Hi Sean! My name is Rwanda, and I heard of this product from my daughter today, so I decided to look on YouTube and chose you to listen to concerning this product. I understand what you are saying, my question would be, do I take this product daily or twice a day@1/4 tablespoon with a glass or cup of alkaline water, and increase to a whole tablespoon in a week or two weeks? Thank you so much for sharing ,and God Bless you

Sean Martu July 12, 2019 - 4:30 pm

Generally start with half a teaspoon and I move your way to a tablespoon within a week. It’s really dependent upon you and how you feel in regards to the die-off symptoms as all of the toxins flushing out of your body. I tried taking it just in the evening when I went to bed and I’ve also tried taking it in the morning in the evening it really depends on you.

I think you are talking nonsense. The medical profession would be using this if it worked so well! Unfortunately in the US you only have private medicine which is why you distrust them so much because it becomes all about money. In other countries like the UK where we have a state funded medical care system this would be used all the time if it worked as it is so cheap. It’s not. That’s because there is no such thing as a cheap effective magic cure all.
I doubt you will publish my comment!

jill janey December 4, 2020 - 7:06 am

the person above me has ridiculously ignorant logic and the blind trust in their countries medical system is hilarious but cringey ^^
