Diatomaceous Earth – Part 2

The more you hear about this incredible product, the more you will be convinced that you need to make it a part of your daily routine. Everyday brings evidence that the more people turn to nature and natural diets and homeopathic remedies for what ails them, the healthier and happier they are. Clearly, all that we need for our well being is provided to us by nature. This is certainly true for diatomaceous earth.

There are several uses for DE, but remarkably, now, humans too can benefit from the cleansing, filtering agents of diatomaceous earth. It is apparent from the research and anecdotal evidence, that food grade diatomaceous earth provides multiple health advantages for humans and animals as well.

Used as a daily treatment, diatomaceous earth can alleviate the potentially deadly risks of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity, ameliorate annoying and stressful issues stemming from intestinal bacteria and parasites, bronchial inflammation, kidney and urinary infections, irregular bowels, as well as assist with vertigo, headaches, tinnitus, insomnia, and acts as an anti-inflammatory.

Diatomaceous earth is hands down the best remedy for parasites in our bodies. Studies show diatomaceous earth can help those suffering with diabetics and with arterial disease, joint pain and, may, prevent or alleviate Alzheimer disease by preventing the absorption of aluminum.

Diatomaceous Earth is Mother Nature’s product with no harm to the environment, pets or people. 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.

Diatomaceous earth is the ground up shells of diatoms, ancient sub-aquatic material. These microscopic sponges can absorb and trap particles to 3 microns. This miraculous filter system works in our bodies to trap and eliminate toxins and clean our internal systems for improved health as these harmful elements are passed through the body—without chemicals!

Once our diets naturally included sufficient silica, but with depleted soils, hybrid crops, and over processing of foodstuffs, only about 1/3 of the required silica is consumed. Diatomaceous Earth is over 60% silica and when taken, makes up this deficiency.

This natural substance has similar benefits for pets and animals too. Additionally, DE is a natural insect killer-killing by physical action instead of chemical. The DE gets on the insect and scratches their waxy coating off causing dehydration and death.
