An Ancient Remedy
For centuries, farmers have known that diatomaceous earth powder is safe and useful for controlling insects and parasites and that it is also beneficial to livestock.
Many animals, both wild and domestic, seem to instinctively know this and can be seen rolling in and eating diatomite naturally. Natural, freshwater food grade DE powders are harmless to people and animals but deadly to insects.
Only recently have the human health benefits been discovered. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is not actually an “earth” but it is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called Diatoms.
What Can It Do?
When taken internally, many health benefits have been observed. The biggest benefits seen have been lower cholesterol, lowering of blood pressure, relief from arthritis pain, increased energy, more regular bowel movements, smoother complexion, sinus and cough relief.
It is estimated that there are more than 1,500 ways DE is beneficial to humans, plants, and animals. As a daily supplement, many believe that its most beneficial use is for internal cleansing by aiding in the elimination of intestinal parasites, which are not able to develop immunity to the mechanical action of DE. DE can also detox the body. According to a top cancer researcher, it is also the best natural chelating product available for pulling heavy metals from the bloodstream. Many believe that the increase in the number of cases of heavy metal poisoning has occurred in part due to mercury in vaccines, fluoridated water, deodorants with aluminium, some seafood, foil wrap, cooking in aluminium cookware, soda/energy/beer aluminium cans, and a number of other ways. DE has many health benefits.
