Pumpkin seeds work, as well as food grade DE. Diatomaceous Earth is an inert supplement consisting of ground up fossilized diatoms, whose makeup is
Being inert it will either work, or not if you don't have parasites. The one big caution with this is DON'T BREATHE IT!!!
the diatoms are sharp and will trash your lungs.
Food Grade DE is used as a anti-clumping agent in cake mixes, flour, etc....it's also regularly used in animal feed as both anti-clumping and a pest
killer. Any small bugs in grain get literally dehydrated from millions of cuts to their exoskeleton.
Generally you add a teaspoon to your favorite beverage once or twice a day. It's odorless & tasteless. In many respects it is kind of like a
supplement you would add for regularity as well.
Since a smaller daily amount works a little slower, you shouldn't get the toxicity of a massive paracite die-off which in many cases is worse than
the original problem.
Silica is necessary for healthy skin, nails, connective tissue IIRC? Our diets are lacking this since most foods are over processed. Used to be you
got enough from vegetables, but now, not so much.
Please google DE till you are satisfied it may be right for you.
Personally I use it and have not had any problems. I'll add it to my morning tea for 6 weeks when I feel peaked and it makes a big difference.
One thing I've found since it's also a desiccant, that by adding a little to the bottom of my cat's litter box it stays fresher longer, but I add
just a bare coating to the bottom of the box! Not enough that it will go airborne when they dig.
Altho this link is a doggie thing, I chose it because this is the brand I've has results with. I'm sure you can find it cheaper. The other kind
commonly sold is TOXIC and used in pool filters. FOOD GRADE is totally safe unless you breathe it in.
Hope this helps?
