With video Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth

1.First we need to talk about Diatoms. Diatoms are the one celled plant creature that makes Diatomaceous Earth.


  1. There are thousands of types of diatoms all for the purpose of synthesizing water.  Billions of these beautiful diatoms are in every cubic meter of water everywhere.


  1. When diatoms are synthesizing water, they build up mineral crustaceans around them a silica crustacean


  1. 4. Diatoms live about 6 days then these mineral crustaceans fall to the bottom of the water


  1. There are a few places in the world where the diatoms have been untouched for thousands of years and the diatoms have piled into mountains.  There are trillions and trillions of diatom shells in these mountains.


  1. Then the diatomaceous earth is mined, and nothing is added to it, it is simply removed and


  1. crushed into a fine powder which is in reality a fossil shell flour because it’s just the shells of these 1 cell diatoms


  1. Here is a picture of Diatomaceous Earth or DE magnified about 1000 times.  It looks like a cylinder full of holes sort of like Wheat Chex Cereal but it’s very hard and very sharp which makes it effective for use in the human body as well as a pesticide.


  1. One spoonful of Diatomaceous Earth can be mixed in a cup of water, or juice to drink every day.


  1. DE is an amazing detoxifier.


  1. The hard, sharp pieces travel  through your digestive system and scrub and completely clean-out the years of build up. As these millions of sharp cylinders move through the stomach and digestive tract, they attract and absorb  toxins which are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. 


  1. The #1 comment everyone makes about DE is regular bowel movements. Many people are spending thousands of dollars on colonics to keeps away ulcers, polyps, and cancers. Diatomaceous Earth naturally does the same thing at a fraction of the cost.


  1. Those who drink DE report increased energy and needing less sleep. Because the colon is less coated, food and nutrients are better absorbed into the blood stream.

  1. As people age, many suffer from osteoporosis. As our calcium depletes, our bones become brittle and weak. Even with calcium supplements our body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica.
  2. Also with a spoonful of Diatomaceous Earth many have found joint pain relieved. 


  1. People talk about their cholesterol being lowered 40-50 points with a spoonful of DE a day. A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica.   One of the benefits of Silica is the destruction of bad fats.


  1. It’s also amazing how high blood pressure goes down.


  1. Collagen is the glue that holds the skin together and is largely made up of silica. If our body has enough silica glucosaminoglycane, the collagen will help our skin issues and injuries including rashes, itching, boils, abscesses, acne, calluses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, bed sores, and insect bites..
  2. Silica is a major component of hair. Daily Diatomaceous Earth is a good silica supplement for revitalizing the hair. Silica helps to prevent baldness and stimulates healthier, faster growing hair that will glow with a beautiful shine, luster and strength.
  3. Nails grow faster, longer and stronger with the addition of DE in the diet. With silica supplementation, fragile nails become strong within a short period of time. The appearance of your nails will improve and they won’t break as easily.
  4. Silica in Diatomaceous Earth hardens the enamel in our teeth and prevents cavities and preserves them. Silica also stops bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and inflammation.
  5. Many people report that DE is helping them lose weight.  When Diatomaceous Earth is taken in the morning, their appetite is curbed throughout the day. 
  6. In all of these ways we physically benefit from the beautiful diatom shells but the most well known use of Diatomaceous Earth is that of killing insects. 


  1. Simply sprinkle DE on the floor where the insects walk and it gets on their feet and as they move the little sharp diatoms scrape off the waxy coating


  1. The bugs will become dehydrated and die in 30-40 minutes up to several hours.


  1. Some of the bugs that Diatomaceous Earth kills are Ants bed bugs, cock Roaches, and mites. Bugs can’t become immune to it to DE so it always works.


  1. Diatomaceous Earth is very helpful with pets. DE takes care of Flees and ticks organically, no chemicals 


  1. Brush Diatomaceous Earth on them and on their bedding


  1. De-Worming your dog is as simple as feeding him a tablespoon of DE a day.


  1. Intestinal worms will be completely gone within just a few days.
  2. Farm animals can be dusted with DE  and it can be put in live stock’s feed.




  1. For organic, chemical and drug free gardening DE takes care if all garden bugs


  1. Some people mix Diatomaceous Earth with water and spray it on their Fruit trees


  1. Sprinkle D E around the dirt of Flower Gardens


  1. It works for Stored Grain, several pounds of DE per ton and the grain will be free of bugs.
  1. All of these wonders are of Food Grade Diatomaceous earth, I have to warn you stay away from Filter grade Diatomaceous Earth which is heated and chemically treated for swimming pool filters not for people or pets.
