DE is totally organic and safe. It is taken from fresh water deposits and is the purest form available. Diatomaceous Earth is mother nature’s product with no harm to the environment, pets or to people. Diatomaceous Earth is not actually an “earth” but it is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called DIATOMS.
As you will see, there are many uses for Diatomaceous Earth, but to me the most exciting is Human Use. Read about the many other things Diatomaceous Earth can be used for, and you will soon see why we feel every house in the world should have a container of Diatomaceous Earth within easy reach of all.
1st: 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 bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide 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 of 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 our immune system the “jump start” it needs.
3rd: 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 that we know that is taking Diatomaceous Earth has lowered their cholesterol by 40-50 points. Everyone is also 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.
The benefits of silica are many. In today’s grains, there is actually a shortage of silica. Years ago, the silica found in our foodstuffs was adequate, but with today’s hybrids and depleted soils, only about 1/3 of the silica needed is supplied in our food. Diatomaceous Earth is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs.
