Diatomaceous Earth

What is Diatomaceous Earth?

It 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.

We will abbreviate it to DE for this article and show you how to pronounce it!

Dia-toemay-shus Earth is a powder which has many uses. My wife and I take a teaspoon (maximum recommended are three teaspoons) each morning when we first get up in a glass of water. No taste other than the water so easy to take. It should be taken an hour before a meal, or two hours afterwards. But why do we do this?

It is claimed that it helps our liver and colon to function better, improves detoxification and gets rid of heavy metals in our bodies. No we didn’t swallow a kettle - well not recently anyway!

It also improves our energy levels. I am 80 on the 19th of this month (July 2019) and already I find the energy to do so much more. I rise at seven am, bed at eleven pm, and never lie down in the afternoons for the proverbial nap. Mind you, to be honest, I have never done this since the power lunches when I was young, single and in business!

Our skin tone seems to have improved, but not so noticeable when one is getting old! Hair and nails seem to be a lot tougher - I had to buy stronger nail scissors! It is claimed that it strengthens bones,and gives protection from fractures or osteoporosis. It also improves joints and ligament health.

But, there’s more, much more.

If you have pets, it gives flea control and cleaner skin for dogs and cats. But I’m not sure what it will do for your pet viper!

Parasites do live in human bodies and this will destroy them.

One thing to note here. When you start taking this, your stools may be harder and you may have to “push” a little when you go to the toilet. However, after a few days, as the DE gets rid of the bad things in your body, things will come back to normal and you will notice that soon you will be a lot more regular. It took two weeks for me, but I have always done everything to excess!

The powder is positively charged and helps sweep things like heavy metals, prescription drug residues, pesticides, parasites, viruses and even radiation. However, I doubt very much if it will protect you from the radiation of 5G, see my earlier article.

DE comes from the cell walls of fossilized single-cell diatom. A fossil which is ground down into a very fine powder. This comes in containers of various sizes, we get ours in half kilo (500g) containers from AmazonUK for just over a tenner. It is essential that you buy food grade if you want to take it orally. Industrial grade is toxic for humans - you have been warned!

If you type “Diatomaceous Earth” into Google, you will find over twenty pages of websites all about this product. I gave up looking after 20, but there were more. However, this article should be enough - it has most of the information in condensed form here.
