Positive Effects From Diatomaceous Earth

Food grade diatomaceous earth not only helps rid the body of parasites, but it can help remove toxic materials such as heavy metals and poisons from pesticides. It has a positive charge and attracts the bad stuff and drags it out of your body like a little magnet.

Here is a site that tells more about this:

This site is about diatomaceous earth in French:
Here is the same information in English:
This site has information about how diatomaceous earth works to detox:

They mention a "healing crisis" that the body often undergoes when you begin to detox yourself. I believe this is the reason why some people get diarrhea when they first begin taking diatomaceous earth. 

It is suggested that one reduce the amount of diatomaceous earth taken to a much lower level and gradually increase it. The normal amount mentioned is a teaspoon going up to a rounded tablespoon. The time span for this increase is a few days to a few weeks.

A few days sounds too fast to me. If you have violent diarrhea, this can have a serious effect on your health and your life. If you are afflicted with severe diarrhea due to taking diatomaceous earth, increasing your dosage very slowly from considerably less than a teaspoon sounds much less disruptive to your life.

I think an eighth of a teaspoon of  DE or even a pinch might be enough to gradually increase to a normal dosage. Sources vary as to what a normal adult human dose is. They go from a teaspoon a day to a couple of tablespoons. I decided on a rounded teaspoon per dose for my own use. A very large person would probably do better to take a larger dose. I take a dose two or three times a day.

Since I am a vegetarian and eat a lot of raw foods, I do not have to be concerned about constipation much. If you do not eat a lot of fiber, you are likely to become constipated from DE. If you want to take DE, you need to increase your fiber or take a laxative.

This post is getting too long so I need to continue it tomorrow.
