There are many Diatomaceous Earth benefits for humans and several testimonials from those taking it on a daily basis.
The fact that there are so many people taking Diatomaceous Earth as a supplement and boasting about its results is proof to me that so many minerals are absent in our commercially grown foods.
But the question about the safety of DE still arises among those who are new to the idea or to those who remain skeptical and have never indulged themselves into its beneficial properties.
You can read of countless diatomaceous Earth benefits testimonials from those who have ingested it for human health benefits, but those who are skeptic about its natural benefits are already consuming it unaware.
Silica, derived from DE, is FDA, EPA and USDA approved and is found in simple things like toothpaste and stored food grains. With that being said, I have already stated on other pages that I am not a doctor or nutritionist, so I am required to provide the *Disclaimer below.
What are the Diatomaceous Earth benefits for humans?
You must understand the importance of FOOD GRADE as there is another that can be harmful if ingested. You want to make sure to use highest quality silica of about 85-89%. There are some offering it at a lower percentage. Make sure the label reads "Food Grade" and 89% Silica is considered 100% DE. It should look white to slightly off-white.
DE is very hard. It ranks #7 on the hardness scale where a diamond ranks #9. Notice the picture of the many diatoms. Their shells look like circular rice checks that are sharp and jagged.
That is why it is used in toothpaste, because its abrasiveness rubs away the plaque stuck on your teeth. Much like scrubbing your teeth, it also scrubs away all the mucus and molds stuck to the lining of your intestines.
In just a few months your colon will be free of "junk" clinging to the walls, helping your body absorb nutrients better, resulting in more energy and better sleep. Getting rid of this unwanted coating can reduce your risk of polyps, cancers, and ulcers. You will also have more frequent and regular bowel movements.
For years I have believed that, when your intestines are blocked, just about everything imaginable that can go wrong, will go wrong. This can lead doctors and physicians into misdiagnosing your symptoms and prescribing you unnecessary medicine. The Diatomaceous Earth benefits in the intestines can play a massive role healing.
Candida is a fungus that can consume the entire body. Everyone has this fungus in them to help aid the body in decomposing when they're dead. It eats you from the inside out.
However, when we feed our bodies its favorite foods (sugars, starches and some antibiotics) we can have a Candida overgrowth. This blocks our digestive system and it begins to eat us alive feeding on what we eat and robbing us of our nutrition. Symptoms can also be very numerable, faking the doctors into thinking something else is wrong with us.
In fact, Candida can become so out of control that doctors will sometimes misdiagnose its symptoms for Lyme disease.
This next statement is entirely my personal opinion, without any tests performed or claims from any person, that Candida could possibly be controlled by a steady intake of Silica.
If you'll notice the picture again, the fungi could become trapped in the tiny microscopic holes allowing the fungi to be carried away and exit out the colon. It could also be scrubbed away by the DE abrasives, thus ridding the body of excess Candida. Be careful though.
If you rid the body of the unwanted yeast too fast, then you could experience a "Candida Die Off". Your body is in overload as it tries to flush everything out at once. Cut the dosage in half for a while or stop all together until you feel better again.
Because Candida can take over the entire gut it can show up in so many other areas of the body and can result in these symptoms that you may suffer from.
This is by no means the complete and exhausted list.
1. Pain During Intercourse
3. Legions On The Skin
4. Chronic Rashes
5. Digestive Pain
6. Mood Swings or Depression
7. Vaginal Odor

DE Lowers High Blood Pressure
The diatomaceous earth benefits, according to my supplier, claim by most people, that it not only reduces their high blood pressure, but in great significant amounts as well.
Lowers High Cholesterol
As silica is absorbed into the blood stream, in small amounts, it is taken to the arteries where fats cling to the inner walls. The fats are then stripped away. This could also be due to its abrasiveness. Those that take it lower their cholesterol by 50 points. It's even possible to cut it in half.
Osteoporosis & Joints
Due to the bodies aging process, our bones become brittle from lack of calcium deposits. Taking only calcium supplements will not correct this problem because the body can not assimilate or make use of the calcium in the absence of silica.
Nobel Prize Doctor Butenant proved that
"life can not exist without Silica".
Water & Salt, a book by Dr. Barbara Hendel in 2003, states that
"Silica is the most important trace element in human health".
Diatomaceous earth benefits or Silica plays a crucial role in the body's ability to absorb minerals.
Silica is responsible for depositing calcium and other minerals into the bones. The body has an amazing ability to transform silica into calcium when it is needed, speeding up the healing process of broken or fractured bones. Research shows that when the body is calcium deficient it will take the silica into a transmutation process, forming it into the much needed calcium for the bones.
Natural Weight Loss
Many say that when taken in the morning, it helps to curb the appetite, thus eating less. How would they feel mixing it in with a pot of coffee? :-)
When connective tissue develops an inability to retain moisture, tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging. Here is really where the diatomaceous earth benefits play a big role in our health. Collagen is the glue that holds tissue together and it is largely made up of silica.
silica glucosaminoglycane is what our body produces and with enough of it we can maintain youthfulness and vitality.
Silica helps with skin problems and injuries including itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, calluses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, benign skin sores, insect bites and bed sores.
Hair, Nails, Teeth and Gums
Hair is almost as rich in Silica as is our bones. Silica makes up a major component of hair. It helps to prevent baldness, promotes healthier growth, strength, and improves a richer lustier shine.
Through the hardening of the enamel, Silica prevents cavities and tooth decay. Its also helpful in preventing the bleeding of gums, gum atrophy, and recession that causes the loosening of teeth.
Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones, teeth and also lessens inflammation. For the same reasons it helps hair, it also helps grow stronger and shinier nails preventing them from breaking. Silica plays a vital role in healthier skin as well. This is your bodies largest organ. It enhances elasticity and creates firmness and also fades age spots.
The daily average need for an adult is 20-30 mg, but 1 good heaping tablespoon should do you quite well, one in the morning and then in the evening.
Take it with your favorite beverage. You will have to keep stirring it as it likes to settle to the bottom.
It will stay suspended if you mix it in shakes and smoothies. You can also put DE in with your regular meals or when baking goodies. A few of the Diatomaceous Earth benefits is tasteless, odorless, and will not botch any recipe. It remains quite neutral.
So, by now, you may have come to understand the many diatomaceous earth benefits for humans and the important role Silica plays in binding the threads of our skin and bones and promoting and maintaining overall great health. Silica and other minerals used to be more abundant years ago before the advent of chemical fertilizers.
Now the soil has been degraded, killed, spent, and depleted of many beneficial minerals and microorganisms. In commercial farming the soil used to contain a complex food web of living organisms that plants thrived in, but in an ever so rush to bring us bigger, stronger, faster producing, and element resisting plants, we have sacrificed quality for quantity.
That is why so many of us are sick and tired (literally) of poor quality and overpriced produce. I am coming closer to putting a stop to all of this nonsense for myself and my family.
Living a healthier and richer life starts with you and the choices you make with what you have.
Do you want a better life?
Well, sometimes those choices call for getting down and dirty...and sweaty. Today is the day to start learning about the land and how to live at peace with it and to work with it and to feel better because of what you're eating, the exercise you put into it, and to feel better about what you are doing.
1. How comfortable are you concerning the economy?
2. Are you pessimistic or optimistic that things will turn around?
3. For good?
4. How long?
5. Are you tired of paying $2 for one tomato?
6. Wouldn't you rather spend $2 for a pack of tomato seeds and grow
all the tomatoes you can eat?
7. Wouldn't you like to have too much food and have to give away or
sell the rest?
I don't know about you, but to me these are easy questions to answer. I know! I have land to grow things, but you can bet your sweet apple pie that if I lived in an apartment complex I would find ways to grow anything and everything I could outside or inside.
As a matter of fact that is what we did when we lived in one. I learned the simple things and when we moved it helped me to accomplish the bigger things. So, if I can grow things in tight places, you can too.
Now go and experience the Diatomaceous Earth benefits and worm composting benefits for yourself.
