Hi there, dear friends :D
This is going to be my longest and most exciting article to date!
Three weeks ago, I stumbled onto the amazing diverse health benefits of Diatomaceous Earth (DE) while reading up on Oil Pulling. I was so impressed by the wonders of what DE could do for humans that I spent everyday reading up as much as I could find on its testimonials.
I had to look for testimonials from people through blogs and forums because Food Grade DE is more commonly used for livestock and bugs control, and there were hardly any scientific research to back up its benefits on humans – mainly because it is Nature’s natural occurring element and it is not a potential drug that pharmaceutical companies can fund the studies to patent DE and make money out of it.
Because DE is of food grade and safe to give to animals for removing internal parasites and worms, people had also considered it safe to ingest DE for parasitic and worm elimination but in the process, they inadvertently discovered many beneficial side effects on their health and bodies!!
* Please note that I am not selling DE and that I am not being paid to write about it here, but I am just sharing with you what I found out about this latest health remedy. Those of you that follow my blog would know by now that I am always very keen to pick up, research and test out natural health remedies.
Last year, I wrote about “On A Quest To Reduce My Husband’s Dependency for High Blood Pressure/Cholesterol/Blood Sugar/ Uric Acid Medication” but unfortunately, my quest didn’t really work out for my husband because I was giving him too many herbal teas to drink and it was tedious to keep doing that daily. Most importantly, my husband didn’t give up his junk and fatty foods and drinks!
But good news!! After having just ingested Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for 2 weeks, my family doctor had reduced my husband’s high blood pressure medication! Instead of taking both Norvasc and Micardis daily, he now needs only to take Micardis – thanks to DE, his blood pressure readings of around 115/75 to 122/80 recently were really healthy and stable!! Our doctor is monitoring the progress of my husband’s medication reduction and next month, my husband’s blood tests due then will reveal the status of his cholesterol, blood sugar and uric acid levels. We hope the DE will reduce them naturally, too!
Not only did my husband’s blood pressure improved drastically, I also experienced the same effect! My blood pressure which usually hovered around 140/90 (except for that time when I was doing Lajin stretching, my blood pressure was lower around 125/82) even dropped as low as 106/72 after just one week of taking DE! Now, my daily readings range between 125/75 and 116/72 – I am so glad I need not go on any medication that my doctor was trying to put me on! Phew! :D
But what I most happy among the wonderful effects I got from the DE was my receding hairline corners at my forehead temples have now filled up with baby hairs! My usual baby fine, limp hair is now so much thicker and for the first time last week to attend a wedding dinner, I didn’t even need to use any hair styling products to give my hair good shape….my hair looks good on its own now! Wow!
Okay….this is going to be a lengthy post because I have so many praises to sing about DE, and so, I will lay them out in point form below. If you or you know anyone who are on medication or statin drugs or are suffering from joint/arthritic pains or have bald spots/receding hairline, go through the notes below for more information. I will post the links to where I got my information from as well as relate my family’s personal experiences there.
Then, do all the research that you need before deciding whether you are going to try ingesting DE or not…
