Diatomaceous Earth (magnified 7000 times) looks like a cylinder full of holes and has a very strong negative charge.

Diatomaceous earth (DE is a remarkable, all-natural product made from tiny fossilized water plants. DE is a naturally occurring siliceous sedimentary mineral compound from microscopic skeletal remains of unicellular algae-like plants called diatoms.

KEY Points

Traps microorganisms inside GI tract and cuts up parasites

When ingested the millions of cylinders move through the stomach and digestive tract, they attract and absorb fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides, and drug residues, E.coli, and heavy metals. These are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. Larger parasites that may be in the stomach or digestive tract are “cut up” and killed by the sharp edges of the Diatomaceous Earth. The “junk” being removed from the body, gives the immune system the “jump start” it needs.

DE gently ‘scrubs’ the walls

DE is quite hard. On the hardness scale where diamonds are a 9, Diatomaceous Earth is a 7. As the Diatomaceous Earth cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they “scrub” the walls. After only a few months of taking Diatomaceous Earth, the intestine wall is no longer coated with mucus and molds but CLEAN!!

The advantages of this are several:

  • Regular bowel movements
  • Healthier and clean keeps away polyps, cancers, and ulcers.
  • Many users report increased energy and needing less sleep. This is a result of all the food and nutrients that are taken in being better absorbed into the blood stream.

DE destroys bad fat

A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica which helps to destroy bad fats. Cholesterol and high blood pressure have been reported to go down.


  • Sore joints and ligaments feel better
  • Skin clears up
  • Hair and nails are stronger and grow faster
  • Stronger teeth and gums
  • Healthier respiratory tract–less coughing
  • Menopause has less symptoms
  • Healthier urinary tract

All good reasons to start taking DE. DE powder can also be sprinkled in the home to get rid of bed bugs and insects. Works for little cockroaches as well.
