I think your post is too important for some folks to pass up because of the WALL OF TEXT in terms of paragraphing. So I've used my own style of journalistic paragraphing to give particularly aging eyes the micro-rests of space between paragraphs. I've added some emphases here and there.


remembering
How about that a post that I might actually be able to talk about intelligently. I have been taking DE for a couple of years now to help keep my BP down.
.

First off there are three types of DM. POOL GRADE: this form has been highly processed. Pressure cooked and other chemicals added. This form will mess you over if you take internally if not outright kill you. Taken internally will cut your insides up.
.

The second type is SALTWATER: this type is not good internally either as there are sediments with it that can be toxic.
.

The third type is FRESHWATER: This one is the one that can be cleaned into “food grade” I would not mess with any of it that is not food grade.

Also all forms are bad in the lungs and in the eyes. Use very cautiously to not get it dusting up in the air. If you are using it for your plants or bed or something that will by its nature make a dust cloud use a mask and eye protection.
.

Diatoms are very small animals that have a siliceous shell. They only live a couple of days and when they die their shell fall to the bottom of the water that they live in collecting over the years that the water is there. After time the water will change course or a lake will dry up leaving the DE in place where the water once was.
.

BUGS: It will only kill animals with exoskeletons. (for some reason not earth worms) It will attach electro statically and will cut into the chitin. The insects will bleed out through these wounds. As far as bed bugs and flees the problem is that there must be good contact. In a lot of cases the whole bed is not covered and the bed bugs will go around. Not just the bed but the box spring the head board and the floor around the bed.
.

ANIMALS: food grade DE has been used for many many years with livestock. (Cattle, sheep, hogs, and chickens). It is put in their food to kill parasites. It works very well for this. Not only tape worm but many other worms and parasites. It will also connect to bad bacteria and carry it out of the system.
.

Some people say that it only does this with bad bacteria and not good. I do not know if I believe this so I supplement my diet with Kefir ( a much better probiotic than yogurt). The reason most people have not heard of the use of DE with animals is because in the farm industry it is called “shell flour” (not to be confused with oyster shell flour”.
.

HUMAN INTERNAL USE: Unknown to most of you, you already consume some of it all the time. Most flour, cornmeal, and grits contain it to keep the mealworms and the like away (dead). Other products have it for the same reason.
.

The reason it does not show up on labels is another think for a different post. As for me I take 1.5-2 tablespoons first thing in the morning with my ACV to help control my BP. It does work for me. I take it in the morning as it peps me up. If I take it at night as I find that I am too hyper to sleep. Other people take it at night as it allows them to sleep better.
.

Another benefit is that it helps to clean your system. It is a natural bowel cleaner. It does help to ensure regular bowel movements and people that get constipated that use it find that they no longer have that problem. I have read that it also helps to cleans the liver, but I do not know if that one is true or not. With the bowel cleansing property comes nicer skin and hair.
.

Bottom line everyone is different and will react differently.

Thank you. It is easier to read.

I purchased and used diatomaceous earth with bentonite clay for controlling insects and absorbing / deodorizing messy things my dog did and oil and the like, it worked better than anything I have tried before without the toxicity of those chemicals and other mysterious compounds so many try to pass off in their sales pitches, if they are trying to sell it to you, you cannot trust them to be truthful regarding safety, any more than an insurance agent is going to give you the rundown about how you can lose coverage.

I even tried out the DE with bentonite as a nutritional supplement myself, with no ill effect but not long enough to really recognize any benefit because it tastes absolutely awful, I didn't try it on my dog yet because she is mostly white and the substance is brown.

I am going out to find a source of DE without anything added to it today, pure DE is way more expensive because it is usually found in health food stores and they, like any other business, seem to think they have to make 100% profit for even touching something they offer for sale.

I will get back here and share my results after I get some pure DE, and would like to add that amorphous silica (DE) does not pose the same dangers as silica sand like many have stated here, it isn't any more dangerous than getting a snoot full of dirt or dirt in your eyes, your body can actually break it down, wash it away or eliminate it without too much of a problem.

Of course you shouldn't really literally inhale anything but air, but considering there is wind and dirt and salt and car exhaust in the air we breathe, among many, many other things, it's rather obvious our bodies have a way of eliminating such things...

Right?.....(Macrophage activity and motility of fluid component toward elimination)

Sorry about all of this "I...I...I...", I suppose I could say "Meesa", like that tarded Jar Jar Binks character that really turned me off to the Star Wars flicks....

I would be thinking of, aside from vacuuming and cleaning, utilizing the oils of oregeno and thyme, that have some pest control features, internal and external. Mint oil too.

Yes, I know for a fact that many natural oils have insect repellent and insecticidal and even antibiotic/antiparasitic effects.

These things are hard to locate in my area for some reason or other....

Florida is a strange and dangerous place, where it's easy to get what you WANT but hard to find what you NEED....
