I've been a lurker

Hi, I'm Mike 43 years young

I've been lurking and have finally read this entire thread. Kudos to all of u for your responses. I've take the food grade dirt for about a month and a half with very similar results of this community.
Results: hair filling in sugar cravings abolished (this brings tears to my eyes as I couldn't stop with the sugar and would purchase it in some manner whether it be an energy drink, candy etc. Every time I went to the store. Cavity yes but I was to the point that I'd trade my teeth for something sweet. My portions of the sweet stuff were out of control as well. After two weeks of the fgde my cravings slacked off. I still ate it to see the reponse. Less Hi and low...after three weeks my cravings were gone I mean gone! If all it did was this i'd gladly take it. Nice bowl movement's no creepies that I'm aware of. Still with the disproportionate stomach to body. Did a little research on that and my then dental pocket s and cavities and found some other beverage to dable with but did slack on the fgde. Some things slightly returned, but... I wanted to know the contrast in the items I've taken.
With regards bowl movement's I thought long and hard about the different responses reported and have concluded that some members may be in such a shape to have obstructions in the bowl to which I'd recommend reducing the amount taken or redistribute the full amount throughout the day. Seems to stimulate the intestinal walls. As regards the people worried that this stuff will "shread" the bowls I agree with the person that said the mouth is similar to the bowls, if its not irritated the mouth how could it possibly hurt the intestinal walls.
Note whenever I'd go gungho I'd definitely see die off effects and would never recommend doing so during work days. Gungho being when I'd take heaping teaspoon or lvl tablespoon three or more times a day. Die off results (which were very temporary) some pain in the joints, ashma symptoms, brain fog etc. But these same symptoms are being removed from my body, joy!
I'm going back on the fgde, and will start a new ExCiTiNg thread once I've tried it for myself satisfactorally.
Love dirt
P.s. results of my new drink so far: such mental clarity, rapid recovery, teeth problem seems to be reversing, bowl moves minimum twice daily. Hunger reduced to almost zero. Just one week in so far so I'll keep you all posted.
Happy new year.
Good health to you.

Mike E, as you may have read in my post about brushing my teeth with DE, and my dentist's amazement to the point both he and his assistant thought I quit smoking because my gums were so repaired and my teeth VERY white, I highly recommend brushing your teeth and gums with DE. P.S. Glad you came out of lurking. Welcome to the community!!!

Just curious what is this new drink? I've been making kefir off and on for many years and have more recently started making kombucha. I've been using both of them as a sort of probiotic "tonic" since Aug/Sept, while still taking DE occasionally.

Look up moreless drink. It's quite a good one. It uses pickling lime aka calcium hydroxide, epsome salt for magnesium, kelp, lemon, and blackstrap molasses. I had to ditch the fgde while I took it so I could make sure what the potential would be. All food cravings went away. Gum problems healing as well as teeth. The best mental clarity and sense of calm that I've experienced since I was a teen. A weird sensation that something was being drawn from my eyes at the beginning. The only info I could find looked like it could be biased so before I could present it here I decided to try it for myself. I haven't had any joint pain since I've been drinking this and I can tell that the effects are building. Within three days I could tell this stuff is working. Imagine that we have a bucket with a small drip in it and it never seems to have any water it. Thats our bodies and the current nutrition most of us experience. This drink seems to Finally! Replenish! that which there never seems to be enough of. Little things no longer set me off like they did before. Candy has no appeal. I can handle the cold better. Joints stopped hurting. I have stamina again. You know it really stinks when you have a list a mile long and no energy to do it. I had one of the most stressful days perhaps in the top 4 in my life went to the store out of habit to buy the sweet stuff and it had no appeal I couldn't buy it. You know I even purposely cheated later while in a relaxed state of mind eatong a snack but no tooth pain and... No herion like high. Perfect. Candy has no hold on me. Back to topic at hand this is only what I can see and feel. Basically breaking it down: high absorbable calcium balanced with magnesium, iodine balanced with it surrounding nutrients in the kelp, iron, copper, zinc, and many others in the black strap molasses which by the way does not promote Candida. I have my toenails and in between my toes that would let me know if t did. They are healing now. Only two weeks of using it, but I really think we need a new thread for this. It works better then the fgde, better then the green drinks I've taken can't say enough good thing but there is only one source of info out there on curezone and as I said earlier it kind of reads one-sided so I'd love to start a new thread if the system will allow it (they seem to be revamping the infrastructure). Recap. Joints, mind, Candida, high energy, low stress, kills cravings sugar and other, and of course the things I can't see. I was really sick. No energy I said I can't keep living like this, teeth were getting really bad, back muscles would hurt and sometime make me lay down, angry too easy. I avoid doctors like the plague, in the past I would go but they never helped. I had to heal my own ulcer cure my own thrush etc. This protocol is dirt cheap. I doubt you'd spend ever more then 8 dollars per month... Ahh it seems in my research that the Japanese have in a way copied this exact protocol, but are selling it under a less than available formula, and clam to be curing cancer and a whole host of other diseases. If anyone knows if the system will allow new threads at this time let me know I'll be checking back soon
Good health to you.

The Moreless Alkalizing Drink


Here's a great alkalizing drink that can help
remineralise you quickly and cheaply!
This is an amazing power packed, mineral and nutrient
dense drink that will not only help to alkalize you, but
will give you loads of electrically charged energy! It may
be taken 2-3 times a day as needed.

Ingredients:
1. 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses (it may be Unsulphured )

2. Juice of half a lemon (OR 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar if you can't take citrus or get hold of lemons)

3. 1 + tablespoon pickling lime water (how to make pickling lime water : 1 tablespoon of pickling lime powder, aka calcium hydroxide, diluted in 1 gallon (=4 litre) of distilled water) *see safety notes below*

4. Small pinch of Epsom Salts

5. Norwegian kelp powder 1 + teaspoons

6. 1 glass of clean water to mix it with

*** you can take a lot MORE pickling lime water and "Kelp"
than is suggested above. Start slow and if things don't
improve, slowly build up. Some of us use up to 20
tablespoons of pickling lime water and up to 2
tablespoons of kelp powder each time ***


The chemical reaction between the acid in the lemon
juice and the alkaline minerals in the molasses releases
energy into the body and makes the minerals more
bioavailable.

Method:
*Dissolve the blackstrap molasses and Epsom Salts in
warm water (leave to cool if desired)

*Add 1 (or more) tablespoons of pickling lime water

*Add the lemon or ACV (I sometimes add both) Add these
only when the drink has cooled down, you don't want to
destroy the enzymes

*Some people like to mix their kelp in with their drink,
some just put the kelp straight into their mouths
Special note on the kelp!: Most people find the taste
absolutely vile ?

it may help to moisten it and your mouth first so you
don't gag! Some people use a straw to bypass the taste.
But this really is an essential part of the drink and is
packed with loads of minerals and complex carbohydrates,
so do what you need to do to get it down! And yes, kelp
is available in capsules, but the powder is much cheaper.

(This is an edit .. after several months of taking the
kelp powder, it no longer tastes so vile! I am becoming
immune to the taste - hooray!)
... And drink!

If you are chronically ill: I suggest you start with
with just a teaspoon of kelp and a tablespoon of the
pickling lime water along with all the other
ingredients. Over time, start building up on both those
ingredients until you can manage 2-3 teaspoons of kelp
and 2-4 tablespoons of the picking lime water in each
drink. You don't have to drink it all at once, you can
also sip it over a few hours.

When someone has been chronically ill for a while, a
drink like this might create a powerful reaction and
start to release acids from organs and tissues too
quickly, that is why I am suggesting you start slow.
(Better to aim for minimal discomfort while you begin to
rebuild your health)
Can you make a batch in advance?

You can mix the Blackstrap Molasses, pickling Lime water
and kelp together without the Lemon juice or the ACV and
keep this cool - then add the ACV or Lemon juice just
before drinking. The batch should be ok for a day, but
not longer than two days. Fresh is best!
Heath Notes:

*Blackstrap molasses should be unsulphured. Sulphur is
acid forming.
*If using apple cider vinegar, buy organic and
unpasteurised (*with mother*) so full of active enzymes.
Otherwise, just find a good source of unpasteurised ACV.
*Pickling lime is normally found in the pickling/canning
section of shops. Your alternative is to buy calcium
hydroxide powder and put 1 tablespoon of the powder in 1
gallon of distilled water and use that as your pickling
lime solution.
*Buy food grade epsom salts.
*Kelp is apparently purest from Norway, and it is better
if it is finely powdered.
*If you are very acidic, you can also add a pinch of
epsom salts or a tablespoon of ACV with a tablespoon of
pickling lime water to your normal glasses of water (the
pickling lime provides calcium by the way).

I've been happily drinking the above 2-3 times a day.
And it has a buzz to it!
To keep your mineral reserves up, to every glass of
water throughout the day, you may also add a tablespoon
of pickling lime water (plus a dash of lemon or ACV)
The Moreless alkalizing drink is basically a very cheap
and effective method of creating alkalinity and is NOT
meant as a substitue for a wholesome diet with complex
carbs as is found in foods like green veges. The drink
is basically a method to get us more alkaline quicker,
but it is NOT the way to become alkaline totally, that
takes some effort!

What Moreless is presenting people here are various
options. Not everyone is prepared or able to go all the
way with eating right. So he is giving people easy and
cheap ways to kick start their healing whilst finding
their way at improving their diet, which will in turn be
the most important part of their healing. The kelp and
molasses are packed full of minerals that may be
difficult for people to find in the foods that are
available to them right now.
Moreless on the alkalizing drink: HERE
The Epsom salts, pickling lime water, lemon juice or ACV
create the electro-magnetic energy so that our bodies can make
the best use of the minerals.


** SAFETY NOTES ON CALCIUM HYDROXIDE ** (For those who
can't get hold of the pickling lime water.)
CALCIUM HYDROXIDE (also known as - pickling lime
water/Ca(OH)2/slaked lime/biocalc/lime water etc.)

In concentrated powdered form, this stuff is a skin, eye
and respiratory irritant. It is CORROSIVE and causes
burns. Should you be using this concentrated form to
dilute with water before use, please protect yourself by
wearing safety glasses, gloves and minimize your
exposure to the dust itself.
There are no safety issues if you buy the pre made
pickling lime water.

Remember, the drink asks for 1 (to 4) tablespoon of the
diluted lime water - you take 1 tablespoon of the powder
and add it to a gallon of water. You do NOT add the
powder directly to your drink!

This powder is also incompatable with strong acids!

Start small and slow, and add more after checking your
response. We are all unique, so someone else's ideal
doseage may not be the same as yours.

My suggestion is to make up your solution outdoors. This
powder is very fine and fluffy, it'd be easy to
accidently spill some on your kitchen or bathroom floor
for unsuspecting kids and pets to walk on.

More useful information about Calcium Hydroxide here:



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcium_hydroxide




The following is as good a description of calcium
hydroxide as I can find (albeit it relating to use in
aquariums, but surely applicable when considering human
consumption):

"A preferred method of calcium supplementation comes in
the form of calcium hydroxide, known as "kalkwasser" to
reef aquarists. Calcium hydroxide has a chemical formula
of Ca(OH)2, in other words, it supplies one Ca+2 ion for
every two OH- ions. Calcium hydroxide can be mixed at
approximately 2 teaspoons [5.7g Ca(OH)2] per gallon (or
1.5g/L) of filtered freshwater to attain approximately
800mg/L calcium solution to be dripped slowly into the
reef aquarium. A beneficial side effect of using calcium
hydroxide is that the OH- (hydroxide) ions maintain the
pH of the aquarium by neutralizing acids present in the
aquarium, thereby helping to maintain (but not build)
the alkalinity in the aquarium. One could use pickling
lime, which is also calcium hydroxide.

Smile Tis your choice.

I'd like to post a retraction on here...

Some time back I posted that I had to get off DE because it was causing heart palpitations. As it turns out it was a 210/110 blood pressure issue that was causing them- yeah, lucky to be alive.

I don't drink, smoke or over-eat, and was exercising regularly. It seems that family heredity on heart and blood pressure issues caught up with me. Thanks to blood pressure meds, I am now down to 136/82 and back on the DE after a year or so layoff. Just wanted anyone who was concerned after having read my prior posts to know that DE wasn't the problem.

Right, but remember that it has the mag, and kelp, and black strap molasses, and the calcium hydroxide is one tablespoon per gallon of water and your only using 1-8 spoons of this water. So it is a very small amount and is balanced unlike many pills. Again this formula is being used to treat cancer and other ailments in Japan. On and that one gallon at one to 8 spoons seems to last forever so the calcium intake is very low BUT the absorbability is superb. I'm going on 3 weeks and haven't consumed the one tablespoon (perhaps just half a gallon of the pickling water). Anyhow does anyone know if the system is back to where we can start a new thread?

Different areas of the body need to be more acidic than others, organs all operate best on specific Ph. Many people who think they are too acidic are actually too alkaline. Eric Berg discusses this:

I've been putting the DE in a drink that I sip over the course of a few hours, so not getting it all at once, no residual problems, need to do it every day to see if I can get some energy back.

Systemic ascariasis & DE

Like you LeViolinist, I too have systemic Ascariasis (and I would not be at all surprised to find a tapeworm or few in there, too).

I would be interested in knowing some of the reactions you went through in the initial stages on DE, and how long it took before you really felt as though you were getting somewhere....?

Any time I try to do anything that they perceive as a threat they just go into a hatching frenzy. Their activity keeps me awake for hours night after night. I haven't slept properly for years.

I suspect I may have picked them up as a child (I am now 59....).

I have thrown everything natural at them I can think of, but they just won't go. What doesn't kill them seems to make them stronger. I tried DE about 3 years ago but I only bought 250gms which only lasted about a month, and from your experience was not anything like long enough.

I have now bought 5kg and have been taking it since around 1 September. I have seen no evidence of anything in my stool, but judging by all the movement they are obviously VERY narked.

It is 2.45am and I (they) feel very stressed and anxious. I am not stressy by nature - or at least I try not to be so I am sure they are triggering the stress hormones. I downed a couple of Kroeger Wormwood complex an hour or so ago, and that probably is affecting them too.

What sort of reactions did you get, and how did you cope with them? Did you ever see any evidence in your stool? How long after taking the DE?

Eat some pumpkin seeds too while taking the DE. Going on 10 years now worm free (note, don't think I had worms before, but know I don't got them now.. Plus we make our own worm wood tea. Grow the stuff, it's great.

You might try to "zap" them with 1/4 tsp sea salt in 1/2 inch of water or so - dissolve and swallow - it's fairly gross, but don't drink any more water. If you have to, rinse and spit out.

If you have had them a long time, it may take a few treatments, but I always know when I get parasites from a salad when we eat out, or from seafood (which I have almost quit eating). Don't do it more than once a week as you get too much sodium at once and it can be hard on the kidneys too often.

Do you also get the "movies" (thoughts/music) going through your mind all night? - I do this, and they stop and I sleep after 30 mins or so. But I catch the little beggars before they take root.......the horrible ones are the hookworms which pinch around the waistline.....yech.

...My wife was born in the Philippines and lived there until she was 19. I have been taking DE since I started reading this thread. Last Dec. I finally convinced her to take DE every day. She had tried several times but always quit because of stomach. She was sick for almost 6 months before the pain stopped. Lots of black poop also. But she now says it was worth it. She has more energy and feels better.

As far as eating pumpkin seeds.... that's a time honored method of elminating intestinal parasites, but I strongly suspect the ones sold now (those lovely, delicious, HULLESS seeds) don't work as well- if at all.

Anyone who has roasted their own, "old fashioned" pumpkin seeds and eaten them has experienced the unmistakable effects as they exit the body; no matter how well you chew them, it's like having eaten a pine cone! But the hulless ones- which is all I grow to roast these days- have much, much less insoluble fiber, and I'm not sure they'll do much in terms of parasite elimination.

I still take 1 Teas of DE in water every day in the morning on empty stomach. ... because it's good for me... To be rid of parasites, I think a person has to take it maybe twice a day, for about 4 months, because of the egg cycles.. And drinking extra clean water is an absolute essential.

Pumpkin seeds have compounds known as cucurbitins that paralyzed the worms, so if you use it, be sure to also take a lower bowel cleansing capsule, or whatever your preference, to move the creepies out while they're asleep and detached. A few seeds aren't really enough. Better to make a paste with about a half cup of pumpkin seeds and coconut milk, blended into a porridge. There are recipes online.

Since last November I've also gone 100% VEGAN. I doubt there's anything I eat that a parasite would enjoy now. The purely plant based diet has seriously changed the dynamics of my entire system. No dairy, no meat, no sugar; all the things worms crave, especially as it all putrifies in the colon.

Conrad, Happy about your wife, that she hung in there, and is feeling better!

The problem with only eating fresh veggies and fruits is that sometimes they don't get washed completely........ and the parasites are still on them......maybe just the eggs, but that is enough.

I just don't even eat salads at a restaurant now, as the dirty lettuce is the main source of contamination for me.
 
You can try juicing a piece of garlic in a glass of water and drink it. I do it, or I take 1tablespoons of already minced garlic straight with a glass of water.

Here's a great way to eat fresh raw garlic: Humus. Make a batch with chickpeas, cumin, fresh lemon, some braggs and about 5 or 6 cloves of garlic.

Sulfur for Better Health? Yes, 10 Surprising Ways



You're probably familiar with sulfur as a natural element but did you know that organic sulfur is absolutely vital to health? Sulfur is one of the basic building blocks of a vibrant body, essential for maintaining everything from youthful skin and joints to a healthy digestive system.

Read on to find out 10 ways sulfur can affect health, not just for people but all animal life.

Our website also has more in depth information on our two new MSM supplement powders to help you experience the benefits of bio-available sulfur for yourself.

Did you know ...
lady running on forest trail

Sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in the body, about half concentrated in your muscles, skin and bones, and is essential for life. Sulfur makes up vital amino acids used to create protein for cells and tissues and for hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. The body uses up its store daily so it must be continually replenished for optimal health and nutrition.

Sulfur is needed for insulin production. Insulin controls carbohydrate metabolism, but insufficient sulfur makes it harder for the pancreas to produce enough insulin, and makes cells less able to absorb things from the blood, contributing to blood sugar problems.

Sulfur detoxifies at the cellular level and relieves pain. Healthy cells can absorb adequate nutrients while releasing toxins and wastes. Sulfur affects this by helping your body build strong breathable cell walls that properly balance cell pressure. Having enough sulfur helps your body to remove toxins that may suffocate the cells, or swell them, causing pain, allergies, stiffness, and muscle soreness!

Sulfur builds flexible cells in the arteries and veins - the opposite of "hardening of the arteries". Elastic, "breathable" blood vessel tissues are able to pass oxygen and nutrients through their walls to nourish the rest of the body and handle the body's blood flow without stress.

Sulfur has been called nature's "beauty mineral" because it keeps your complexion clear beautiful skinand youthful and hair glossy and smooth. Collagen production in your body depends on sulfur to create healthy skin and heal scars. For example, sulfur improves acne by resolving scars, removing toxins from the skin and creating healthy new skin cells. When you have enough sulfur in your body, your skin and hair are more flexible, softer, and smoother.

Where is organic sulfur found in nature? Where do we get organic sulfur we can use? From rainwater and seawater absorbed by plants. Plankton in our oceans absorb it from underwater volcanoes and then release sulfur compounds back into seawater as part of their natural cycle. This is converted to DMS, a gas sulfur compound that bubbles up into the atmosphere. Ozone and ultraviolet sunlight change the sulfur gas to DMSO and Methylsulfonylmethane, known as MSM. The rain now contains MSM which is spread over the oceans and land where it is absorbed by plants and seaweed.


But we don't eat a large diet of foods rich in organic sulfur like people used to. For most of human history, we could eat fruits and vegetables fresh from the ground and not have to give a second thought to getting this essential nutrient. But food storage, transport, processing, cooking, even washing and drying, dissipates MSM, so by our modern lifestyle we have lost access to the MSM our bodies expect. Also with air pollution and degradation of our soil and water, it has become essential to make sure we supplement our diets with bio-available sulfur to get enough for optimal health.


MSM has an amazing anti-parasitic action. When parasites attach to someone's intestinal lining, they can live, reproduce and leach nutrients from the body indefinitely. MSM blocks parasites by competing for receptor sites on the mucous membrane. When parasites can not attach themselves, they are simply flushed out of the system with the excess MSM.

MSM has anti-allergic properties. MSM has an ability to bind to mucuous membranes and form a natural block against allergens. Another way MSM can alleviate allergies is through detoxification, elimination of free radicals, and improvement of cell permeability. Several authors including Beth M. Ley in her book- MSM: On Our Way Back to Health With Sulfur have noted that MSM works as a safe histamine inhibitor, at least as well as the traditional antihistamines, without the negative side effects.

MSM and Vitamin C. Your body uses MSM along with Vitamin C to create new, healthy cells and connective tissue. MSM helps determine how flexible the bond is between the cells. An adequate supply of MSM and Vitamin C supports healthy cell regeneration. As your new cells are created, MSM is incorporated into the bonds that make up cells walls. The result is the creation of cell walls that are better able to absorb nutrients.

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is 34% sulfur, making it the richest source of bio-available organic sulfur. MSM is safe, non-allergenic and easily digestible as a food.

Since naturally occurring MSM is found only tiny amounts in even the richest natural plant sources, you would have to eat a pound of garlic every day to get as much as is in a teaspoon of bioavailable MSM.

The safety of the MSM supplements is guaranteed by manufacturing (in a GMP-FDA approved facility) that uses distillation to remove all impurities, leaving only MSM. With regular testing for quality and purity, this MSM meets and exceeds industry standards. The MSM powder we sell has received a GRAS designation, meaning "Generally Recognized as Safe".

Our MSM, available for people and pets in bulk one pound bags, will help you supplement your diet with an often overlooked essential mineral. Even though MSM is found in small quantities in food, we recommend adding our MSM to your daily nutrition program as the best way to ensure you get sufficient amounts to support your system.

We now have minimally processed MSM as Pure Organic Sulfur Crystals to support your cellular health. This is the most potent form, up to 85% more effective than commercially ground and packaged finer powders or capsules which also contain any anti-caking agents. Find out more and get our minimally processed MSM here.

Take 1 teaspoon per 100 lbs body weight twice daily. Drink LOTS of water - as many ounces of water as equals 1/2 your body weight in lbs. It is preferable to take MSM Sulfur on an empty stomach, so nothing interferes with its full, fast utilization in the body. You can take it with food, but some of it will combine with the food for less effect.

We hope you enjoyed learning more about the positive impact supplementing with sulfur can have on your health. Who knew that such a common element is also a vital food supplement?

Have you had a positive healing experience after taking our Sulfur? We'd love for you to share your story with us so we can pass on what our customers are saying about how MSM helped them.

Thank you.

These things are crawling, wriggling, writhing, slithering and sliding, hatching and breeding all around my body, so it's going to take quite a long tme to get at them all I reckon.

I've tried so many different things (except drugs. Docs don't believe me and in my experience of drugs in general they rarely provide a lasting cure, not to mention the side-effects). Done the garlic, MSM, neem, graviola, berberine, wormwood complex, pumpkin seeds, papaya seeds, carrots, coconut oil/coconut, essential oils, Tulsi tea, etc. Tried juicing/vegetarian, high carb, low carb, even Zero Carb (I do best on that actually, because I have the added complication of being diabetic and VERY insulin resistant, so carbs are a no-no).

LeV, I do not buy into the 'meat rots in your colon' vegetarian hype. Those who eat Zero Carb do not need to eliminate as often because most of the protein (amino acids) and fat is absorbed and utilised by the body. There is no fibre. It cannot rot, because that only happens in the presence of oxygen, and besides, the stomach acid and enzymes go to work on it, breaking it down into its component parts for use by the body. I have not been constipated at all on ZC. If the meat was rotting and putrefying in my colon I would have lots of gas, but I rarely have any.

Everyone I know of on ZC absolutely thrives on it, and their bodies are finally getting the nutrition they have been starved of for many years. They lose weight where necessary and gain muscle definition, even if not exercising. They have energy - sometimes for the first time in years. They are strong, and healthy.

Fruits and vegetables are in the main, catabolic. Protein is anabolic. We go into a catabolic state at night when the digestion is still and when we are fasting. The body temperature goes down. When I was vegetarian I was cold and often very shivery all the time. Catabolism is a cleansing state. It can be good to be in catabolism for a while to cleanse the body, but we cannot stay in it indefinitely. We need anabolism to rebuild cell structure and heal. Many who have gone vegetarian can find, over time, that initial feeling of well-being starting to regress, as the anabolic nutrition starts to deplete. Victoria Boutenko found this. The only way she and her family could continue vegetarian was to literally consume a shed-load of greens every day for the protein.

Don't get me wrong, I love fruits and vegetables, but my body cannot cope with them. My body seems to need the protein. I read recently that diabetics apparently need more protein.

Although I have been gluten free for 8 years, either the Celiac damage in my gut or the fact that the parasites undoubtedly hijack my nutrition before my body gets a look in, almost certainly means that I need more nutrition.

It is possible the worms are contributing to or even causing the diabetes too. It will be interesting to see over time on the DE whether it improves. There may be permanent damage, in which case I may never be able to get off the insulin, but we will see.....

As far as eating pumpkin seeds.... that's a time honored method of elminating intestinal parasites, but I strongly suspect the ones sold now (those lovely, delicious, HULLESS seeds) don't work as well- if at all.

Anyone who has roasted their own, "old fashioned" pumpkin seeds and eaten them has experienced the unmistakable effects as they exit the body; no matter how well you chew them, it's like having eaten a pine cone! But the hulless ones- which is all I grow to roast these days- have much, much less insoluble fiber, and I'm not sure they'll do much in terms of parasite elimination.

Funny, I have never bought pumpkin seeds. But every year I try to go and buy local and fresher pumpkins and harvest, salt and roast my own. They taste great, it's always been a family tradition. And never noted a exit problem. Eating to many hot peppers yes indeed.
 
I had what I thought was 'food grade' DE. That is what was on the description online when I bought it 2 years or so ago, and I remember asking and being reassured by the seller at the time, but I was a bit suspicious of it as it was quite gritty and more brown than the 'food grade' DE I had bought in a small bag 3 years ago.

A week back, I realised the delivery note was still in the plastic sleeve on the box, so I detached it. Turns out it was 'feed grade' for horses, not 'food grade', so I bought some Freshwater DE. I suspect that the issue with the feed grade is not only less purity, but much higher heavy metals. Any benefits may be outweighed by the detriments. It also tasted of fertiliser (probably from being stored near it..... I would have complained but it's way too late now).

The new batch turned up on Monday. It is much nicer. Almost white, very fine, no grit, and very light. The 5kg will go a very long way. Interestingly, unlike the other stuff, I have felt it going to work immediately.

Makes me wonder if people who gained little or no benefit from DE did so simply because the type they bought, perhaps from animal feed outlets, was not the real McCoy.....

I am loving this new DE. Can feel it going to work in my body already.

But the beasties don't like it - and it's Full Moon, so sleep is very evasive at the mo......
 
I'd like to post a retraction on here...

Some time back I posted that I had to get off DE because it was causing heart palpitations. As it turns out it was a 210/110 blood pressure issue that was causing them- yeah, lucky to be alive.

I don't drink, smoke or over-eat, and was exercising regularly. It seems that family heredity on heart and blood pressure issues caught up with me. Thanks to blood pressure meds, I am now down to 136/82 and back on the DE after a year or so layoff. Just wanted anyone who was concerned after having read my prior posts to know that DE wasn't the problem.

I suspect it is possble that the DE may have triggered the issue - not because it is bad in itself - but because it unsettles any parasites in our bodies. Their agitation and further movements could, at least temporarily, push the blood pressure up.

I have noticed times, since starting the DE, when my pulse has been pounding and although I've not tested it, my blood pressure is probably elevated too. These things are all around my body, and very likely in my bloodstream too. But just the action of them constricting an artery somewhere, or triggering inflammation that does, could be enough to elevate the blood pressure.

Some people found their blood pressure going up initially, then dropping eventually to a much more healthful level.

It's been awhile since I have regularly taken any DE, but I have been thinking about starting it again.

So, last night I ate out at a restaurant and I started to get sick once I got home. I only had a steak with grilled veggies and garlicky green beans, but I felt just like I do after eating something with eggs or avocado , both of which I'm allergic to...nausea.. gas....etc...

I decided to try a teaspoon of DE in a cup of tea to calm my stomach and it worked. Within 15 minutes I felt better.

I guess it's time for me to start using it on a regular basis again.

Thank you to all who have contributed to this thread. I have made it to page 8.

My issues:

Raised in the South, born barefoot and stayed that way for the first 30 years practically, spent many hours doing so at humane society, horse lot and farm. God knows what I stepped in.

severe asthmatic to age 14

silicone poisoning from broken implants. Methodist Hospital testing showed silicone has even soaked into my retinas.

Fibro

annoying and constant throat clearing and coughing up crud

eat to medicate for Gerd, heartburn etc

constant stomach bloat and difficulty digesting food

Have cysts on top of kidneys as well as nephritis

extreme dry skin, now hair loss and nails splitting

Rosacea........which I believe is a mite

The DE experiment results so far:

Started with a teaspoon per day in watered down juice mornings. On about the 10th day at bed time I noticed the mite critters on my checks nose etc were running around like their hair was on fire. I have demodec cream I mix with oil that will usually stop this instantly. Not this time for 48 hours I was in agony as these things screamed, ran, crawled and exited my nose. Then all was quiet. I of course did not put two and two together on this incident until other things starting happening.

I did notice day one, lots of bowel gas. For three weeks I coasted along fine and then a week ago I hit the wall. Now, I mean it felt like I had been given Chemo and then my whole body was beat with a chain. Headache and very strange head involvement. Joints, neck, back between shoulder blades were unbearable.

I finally figured it out and stopped taking the DE. 5 days later, I was taking heavy doses of pain killers with no help from it, unable to sleep to the extent last night I considered the emergency room at 2:30 am. My whole body was like vibrating with pain. I could not be still and was whimpering uncontrollably.

Granted, I should have read the whole thread and started with a lower dose. Hope I don't read the last page to discover the stuff is poisonous.:lol:

I have found no worms but I am coughing up a different type of substance, stringy really thick stuff. Yep I think I have a lung thingy going on. I am having pain on the right side kidney area where the cysts are sitting on top of my kidney.

Now, I took Dr. Browns procedure using antibiotics for Arthritis and scleroderma 15 years ago. I suffered great Herx response. They had me juice an organic grapefruit, peal an organic lemon and blend these with 1/2 cup of organic olive oil. Drink the whole mixture which does not taste bad and you wont notice the oil. Do this at bedtime and I found the next day I was anew person.

I do not know if this will work with the Herx response with this but I am going to try it and will let you know if it works.

Tomorrow I will soldier on with this starting with a 1/4 t. I urge those of you if you have problems such as mine, start with a smaller dose.

Ok, I finally found this thread and read the first couple pages and the last couple pages, will try to keep reading the rest as time allows. This perennial thread just disappeared quite awhile ago and we are now very interested in the subject for the sake of several relatives and friends who are suffering mysterious symptoms. So wanted to bump it back to the top and ask in particular if anyone has had blood pressure problems from taking DE or just wants to update the rest of us on your long term use . Thanks.

Also, that person on the first page of the thread that talked about clearing the carotid arteries, how could that be possible? Does the DE get into the blood steam? Any ideas on that?

Take vitamin K2 to clear arteries of plaque, the ratio of vitamin D3 to K2 is 10,000 IU to 100 mg of K2, they work best together. I take 5,000 to 10,000 IU of D3 a day and it seems like a lot but 10,000 IU is only 250 mcg's.

Good to see this thread resurrected, I've slacked off of the DE and I need to get back on it.

FWIW, sometimes right side pain is gall bladder, and it can move up the right shoulder and to the back of the neck, mimicking heart problems. If you get this pain, you need ox gall, I get mine in a digestive enzyme from Now vitamins, Super Enzymes. Helps build up stomach acid and digestive bugs too, which seem to take a beating and decline as some of us age. Eating coleslaw daily also helps.

No, it passes through the body unchanged.
It's pretty much just sand, not some magic dust.

Then why would it be attributed to helping clear ones carotid arteries? (Post #5)
Perhaps indirectly by eliminating the side effects of parasites?
