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 of 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 a 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 lightning 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.
