Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?

<<< Wow this really nailed what I had...


It's been since thursday with the DE... and i have awful pain in my back and arms off and on. It's a shooting pain. My head has started to hurt, getting a headache... bending over hurts my head really bad. Going to the toilet #2 causes head to hurt also.
So.. i've tried a bit of this Thursday - Monday and if this is what's causing me to feel so horrible I'm really disappointed. On the other hand, maybe if I wake up tomorrow feeling well, I'll be ready to try it again at a really really small dose.
I just can't imagine feeling so poor for all these days and calling it a detox. My head also feels full and kinda cloudy and i have less energy. No fever.
I'll be back in a day or so and let all know if it goes away. Thnx for feedback.

It's known as the Herxheimer reaction. You might want to cut back on your dosage, and work your way back up slowly.

And drink LOTS of water to flush your system!!

[link to www.lauricidin.com]

The Herxheimer Reaction (die-off reaction) is a short-term (from days to a few weeks) detoxification reaction in the body. As the body detoxifies, it is not uncommon to experience flu-like symptoms including headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, nausea or other symptoms.

This is a normal — and even healthy — reaction to the toxins that are released when large numbers of parasites, fungus, viruses, bacteria or other pathogens are being effectively killed off and the body does not eliminate the toxins quickly enough. The important thing to note is that worsening symptoms do not indicate failure of the treatment in question; in fact, usually just the opposite. The biggest problem with the Herxheimer reaction is that people stop taking the supplement or medication that is causing the reaction, and thus discontinue the very treatment that is helping to make them better. Although the experience may not make you feel particularly good, the Herxheimer Reaction is actually a sign that healing is taking place.

Good luck and keep us posted.

This thread and the research I did from it, made me decide to try it. I was able to go to a holistic center in town, and buy some.

I have been taking only 1 tsp. 3x/day, (for a whole day and a half, LOL), but had been taking Zeolite for the previous 2 1/2 weeks.

Amongst some other smaller complaints, my biggest is my tremendous lack of energy... been low energy for YEARS!! Some times are lower than others, and it makes it really difficult to get anything done, as I have to rest so frequently. I think a lot of it right now, is due to the winter "blues", but I'm just too blah too much, all the way around.

I'm perhaps slightly better today, energy-wise, but if I can improve a bit, day by day, I'll take that happily!! And it does seem like parasites could make sense, as in they can sap your nutrients and energy from you.

I plan to work up to 3 Tablespoons 3x/day over the next couple of weeks.... Going to try to be patient, LOL!! As much as I'd like to be so much more energetic by tomorrow, I also don't want to suffer a lot of the cleansing crisis (Herxheimer) either.

I agree, in that you should definitely NOT stop taking it!! Just cut way back, and slowly work upwards at a pace that is more comfortable for you. (IE. 1 level tsp only 2x/day and work upwards every 2-3 days until you get to the recommended 1 heaping TBS 2x/day) And the water will definitely help you flush the die-off from your system.

I SWEAR I passed a very small kidney stone today... not much bigger (if at all) than a grain of sand... And my kidneys HAVE been bothering me. So I take that as a really good sign, too.

Again, keep us posted!!

My husband is plagued with kidney stones, and is a monster when they are stuck. I just wonder if this DE's abrasive power works by making stones break up before they pass? Just wondering. (I'm trying to get him to try this, but he is so picky :((..)

 Quoting: Roxi


I'm not really sure, Roxi. And it looked like I'd passed another very small one again, today. I've had two big ones, myself. The first one, in '97, was one of the "jacks" type. A PIECE of that one had broken off, and they STILL had to go in and get the rest. The small piece that had broken off, was big enough to hold and count no less than *6* sharp points on it!! I felt that one scraping my insides the whole way through!! <shudder>

The second one was in '08, was of the "mulberry" type. It DID pass on it's own, and was smaller than the first. The two I've seen these last couple of days seem to be of the "mulberry type", as well, and are comparatively small to the other one, may not have even been able to catch them in a strainer if I'd been trying... Even MORE convincing that they were, in fact, kidney stones, is the fact that my left kidney has been bothering me a lot lately. When my daughter had HER first painful stone at the tender age of 17, the dr. had told us it wasn't any bigger than a grain of sand. So, even the small ones can be painful!!

Also, in the last two days, my hemorrhoid has actually shrunk to probably about half, or less, of it's usual size!! Talk about excited, LOL!! Got that from my first pregnancy 23 yrs. ago, didn't bother me at all for about the first decade of having it... But has been there, nonstop, bothering me for the last dozen years or so!! Looking forward to it going AWAY totally!! =)

All I can say, is that in 2 days, I'm very pleased with what I see, and I'm VERY willing to give this stuff the time it needs to totally detoxify me.

I'd say to you... go ahead and give it a shot!! It's VERY inexpensive, all-natural, and it sure as heck can't HURT!!!

Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?
I feel for anyone that has these kidney stones, and so glad I haven't experienced them! It is interesting that they are on the move, now that you are on DE. Keep me, us posted, okay?

I also read on another site somewhere that someone's hemorrhoids had shrunk fast, using the DE, amazing stuff!

Today is my second day, I haven't noticed anything new, except my energy level is still UP, and I am soo thankful for that. I don't know if it's the DE or not. I started counting calories, carbs, fats proteins etc about a week ago, and have noticed I need to work at getting enough proteins, but when I do, I sure feel pretty good. So, not sure. But I do feel good, and for me, that is saying a lot.

I sprinkled it on my dogs, and put a little in the ears ( I read that is safe) and sprinkled it in their beds and favorite spots on the carpet. I haven't seen fleas, but have seen them scratching. Just hope this doesn't create a new problem with dry skin for them. I've even seen my old dog jumping around playful, love to see that!

I'm taking for now, one tsp twice a day, no negative side effects. But I've done several different type cleanses in the recent past, which might be why i am not having negative symptoms.

OC, when you finally get up to three tablespoons three times a day, PLEASE do post how you are feeling!

I'm looking forward to what others say here about this product. hf

LOL, AC, I will let you know. I don't intend to keep up that regimen indefinitely... I simply don't happen to be a patient person, so I want to work up slowly in order to control how I feel, but if I can work up to that within a few weeks or so, I'm hoping to speed up the detox process to make up for lost time, so to speak. Then I will back off to the recommended 2 TBS 2x/day.

I also did forget to mention, that I frequently get a "knot" -- for lack of a better way to describe it!! -- in the upper left side of my back, near by clavicle (?). And that, for now, has eased off, as well.

I'll keep posting if you all will!! I think it would be great to compare results!!

Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?
this thread finally motivated me to buy some DE. I have read it about it before and always thought it would be good to try.

on my third day now of 1 tbls in the morning and have absolutley nothing to report. positive or negative. no side effects and no increase in energy. will continue and see what happens.

there seems to be some confusion as to how much de to take. I was under the impression the recommended dose is on tbls a day. any feedback on this?

Ossie1, I suspect the lower dosages you have seen are for people to start small and work up, to hopefully avoid any negative side effects from detoxing. Let us know if you notice any differences in the next few days, weeks, okay? Thanks :).

 Quoting: Ossiel


Ossiel, from everything I've researched, *1* TBS TWICE/day is the pretty standard dose, though I've seen where people have taken it 3X/day!

[Sorry, had to edit, as I'd given the wrong "standard" dose!!! Oops!!]

You probably won't see too many effects soon taking it only once/day. Even getting up to the standard dose may take some time to see some measurable results, it's a matter of sticking with it.

For example, if you have parasites that are "sucking your energy", you won't see noticeable results until they have started dying off.

Or, if your intestines are covered in mucoid plaque, you wouldn't see results until enough has been "scoured" off to allow your body to absorb (and therefore UTILIZE) the nutrients through your intestinal walls.

So at such a low dose, you probably won't make very quick progress in detoxifying. You might want to start at 1 tsp 2x/day, and work up to 2 TBS 2x/day. If you have a lot of toxins, you will feel terrible (ie. like you have the flu) as they start releasing into your bloodstream, which is why some people (including me) are starting at a lower dose to control the possible effects (I KNOW I have nail fungus!! Among probably a whole lot of other stuff, LOL). As you can see from above, one poster was having a pretty severe reaction.

So, if you increase your dose and you feel worse than you can deal with, back the dose off to the last one you felt comfortable with for a couple days, drink LOTS of water to flush the toxins out of your system, then increase again to a bit LESS than what you took when you felt bad.... And increase back up again slowly.

It seems to be a "long term" type of thing, as in, you may have to take it daily, 6 - 9 mos. before going on a "maintenance" dose. Some people just make it a practice to take daily every day of their lives. Haven't figured out what I'M going to do yet, LOL!! I guess it will all depend on how I'm feeling 6 - 9 mos. from now, and if I start feeling low energy when I go off...

I outlined my "plans" above (and some of the effects I've had already), but have gotten myself up to 1 tsp in the am, 1 tsp mid day, and 1 TBS at night before bed. I don't really like water, so I have been taking in juice: Orange juice, cran-whatever juice, and V-8. I actually have found that the V-8 seems to work the best, as it is "thick" enough that it doesn't ALL fall to the bottom. The DE seems to suspend in the liquid a bit better.

I have been increasing only slightly in my energy, but have not felt sick, either. I'm guessing I can give it a good month or so. I'm figuring that I'm pretty much getting the standard dose, even though I'm splitting the "first" dose into 2 parts. I also stopped taking my vitamins, to give the DE a chance to get my body at least a little cleaner, and therefore better able to ABSORB the nutrients. I figure I'll start those up again in a couple weeks.

Keep us posted!! I guess we can start our own "support group" and give our own testimonials as we go along, LOL!

I pee a lot, LOL!! Didn't have BM the second day, tho. Which is NOT unusual, so I don't know that I can blame the DE for that!! Had a very difficult one today (again, not sure I can blame the DE for that, either!)

Hoping that by tomorrow, the DE will have taken care of the flare up of the hemorrhoid, tho!!! 9 hrs. later and I still hurt. =(

Hopefully, Krist (the OP) will be back soon to update us on his/her progress!!

Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?
as long as it doesn't kill ALL bacteria, because there are trillions of friendly bacteria in the digestive system, some that DO help with digestion (like digestion of dairy products), that produce vitamins (vitamin B and K), that help keep lower levels of cholesterol, and that ensure good health by killing harmful bacteria. Also, some E.Coli bacteria ARE helpful (as in producing vitamin K).

So make sure your desire for health doesn't end up killing you. If you take this thing you're talking about, you might of course get away harmful bacterias, but also good ones, so when bacterias settle once again in your digestive system (which they inevitably will unless you keep ingesting that stuff you're talking about), let's hope for you some helpful ones will have had a chance to settle before harmful ones.

DO your homework OP, just google "digestive bacteria".

Supposedly, DE does NOT kill the friendly bacteria. However, if anyone is worried about it, they can take probiotics, which will replenish the good bacteria.

Just google Diatomaceous Earth and Probiotics.

Hello Krist,
this is truly amazing and i am very very happy for you!
I also mentioned it to salt and light, when she was researching porous stone.
this is interesting stuff, do you notice on the first or second page someone saying it is bad and it is monoatomous gold??
Monoatom ous/diatom aceous gold/earth
there is so much to it, i came across it reading up on all sorts of things like
cavity structures effect
limestone
philosopher' stone
earth crust displacement(the way DE is deposited, in large heaps supports Patick Geryl's view of things to come)
it is silica, apparently we need it

It's a different life form. DE cuts up the sectionals of parasites and it scrubs the inside of blood vessels. It's a clay and has minerals. Things I greatly suspect we need and don't get in our GMO hothouse, hydroponic produce.

We used to eat a lot more dirt and minerals but that needs to be replaced now.

Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?
Warning from the review:

"No complaints, the stuff worked very well - In fact a little creepy well. This first time I took it, I felt a spastic squirming in my body I had never felt before along with a heavy pressure bearing down (like being in hard labor) like the parasites wanted OOOUUTT. It was horrifying to say the least - I then even found a hole/exit wound in my skin (where I had previously felt the squirming) the next day from some of them doing just that! Disgusting. (Having Parasites is 50% head game, I swear).
- It's GOOD to FOLLOW ADVISE about the D.E. when dealing with parasites; which is as follows - "WORK UP TO a Tablespoon a day & THEN a Tablespoon 2xs per day. You can do 3xs per day or more if you feel a need, but you be the gauge. I didn't listen and took about 1 1/2 Tablespoons the very first go round. I'm extremely lucky I didn't receive damage internally from the burrowing of the parasites. Don't do what I did - No need to shock 'em into chaos. Just quietly kill them before they know what hit 'em. - Again.... Following directions is a Good Thing :). "

I'm not a biologist, but if this is true, I would have to assume that the "good" flora is constructed differently than the "bad" bacteria... therefore, the "good" bacteria could be "immune" to being killed off. And the DE could also help provide the optimal conditions in which the "good" stuff flourishes, and the "bad" stuff dies.

But, that is simply a guess. As I said, I'm not a biologist. When in doubt, supplement with a probiotic. I'm sure we need it anyway, given our poor diets!

Was assuming that it was due to athlete's foot, as all the toenails on that foot have fungus, in particular, the big toe. Have had it for YEARS!!!! Hopefully, will see some results in the toenails soon, given how fast the nails are supposed to start growing....

Also, hemorrhoidal effect of the difficult BM yesterday was minimal. Whew!

Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?
Today is my 5th day of 1 tsp twice a day. I used a heaping tsp this morning, slowly moving up. OC, it's kind of hard to say. At one time I was practically bedridden with pain, and over time slowly was getting a bit better, so I don't know how much of my feeling better is DE and how much is other??

About a week and a half ago I changed my diet, eliminating sugars and flours, at least temporarily. Drinking more water. I am trying to exercise regularly, varying the routine, but feel great using a pilates machine the most..it's gentle, and I feel great after. I AM sleeping better. When I get out of bed, my feet don't hurt when they hit the ground, that is a new one! Lots of energy all day long. Not bouncing off the walls type energy, just steady. No sudden drops like before.

Now, I think I overdid it with the powder on my dogs:((, and their bedding, still breathing dust! And it may be too drying on my little Min Pin.

I posted my first day of using it on my face, again, I love it. I use good skin products, and will continue with them. I have Suzanne Summers and SKINN cleansing grains, and I think this beats them both. I use circular motions, and north-south, east west movements, and can't believe how much better my skin looks. I tried it again the second day, nothing. Now, a few days later, I see dead skin moving off. It's not harsh like grains.

Glad the hemorroid issues wasn't so severe, I feel for you!

I wonder if you could make a paste and leave it on your toes for a period of time, if it would do any good, in addition to internally??

I forgot, one more thing I have noticed...
I had two of these cyst things on my scalp, I read once they are fatty deposits or something. Even my hair dresser pointed them out to me like I didn't know they were there..well, I can only find one now, and it seems smaller. But like I said, I don't know what is from DE and what is from diet, although my diet does allow fats.

Oh, yes. I have to admit that I was trying to eat/drink a bit better, prior to starting the DE, as well. Though, like I said, I DID stop taking the vitamins/minerals for a bit to see if they get better absorbed after a couple weeks.

Are you using it on your face every day?? I did try it once, and it left my face so soft, I could still feel it the next day.

I did finally get up the nerve to try it on my teeth, LOL. Not as bad as one might expect. It definitely is different afterward, though, than brushing. I'm not sure if my mouth really didn't FEEL quite as fresh, or if that was simply the lack of mint flavor, and the brainwashing we all get from marketing, LOL!!

Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?
Have noticed that the dry, scaling, flaking, skin on my foot is much better today. Was assuming that it was due to athlete's foot, as all the toenails on that foot have fungus, in particular, the big toe. Have had it for YEARS!!!! Hopefully, will see some results in the toenails soon, given how fast the nails are supposed to start growing....

Also, hemorrhoidal effect of the difficult BM yesterday was minimal. Whew!

Anybody else have updates???

Glad the hemorroid issues wasn't so severe, I feel for you!

I wonder if you could make a paste and leave it on your toes for a period of time, if it would do any good, in addition to internally??

I forgot, one more thing I have noticed...
I had two of these cyst things on my scalp, I read once they are fatty deposits or something. Even my hair dresser pointed them out to me like I didn't know they were there..well, I can only find one now, and it seems smaller. But like I said, I don't know what is from DE and what is from diet, although my diet does allow fats.

Funny you should say that, I was considering DUSTING them on my toenails... I'm guessing, though, that it would behoove me to pick up an extra salt shaker for stuff like that. Well, if nothing else, even if it didn't help, it sure wouldn't hurt!

Considering getting the book about the uses from the healhworks.com site. I'm even thinking that it would be a natural alternative to liquid plumber in one's drain, for example.... If it "scours" the gunk away from our intestines, wouldn't it do the same thing to our plumbing??

I have to laugh on the drano, I hope so! I was washing my face and my gum fell out of my mouth and went down the drain. Hopefully using it as I am in front of that sink, it will dissolve. (y the time the drain is ever checked, this thread will be long gone, I hope!) hf

Re: Has anyone tried Diatomaceous Earth?
Parasites and worms are not a problem in humans with a healthy diet. We do not eat garbage.

Even animals are not given DE by vets.

Eat healthy and the parasites eliminate naturally. Eating lots of supposed anti parasite compounds are going to cause more problems than you currently have.

The same goes for chelation. Change of diet and fasting works better than chelation. Berries and other superfoods like spirulina and chlorella are the best and safest chelators.

Saw a video today of a huge large intestine removed from a man after it plugged up...as big as my leg and twice as long.

I must disagree.....meat eaters will almost always have parasites.
