What Benefits Does Diatomaceous Earth Have For The Body?

A huge positive is DE tastes like nothing, just a little grittiness and the tiniest hint of chalkiness. It’s so much more palatable than other crazy parasite cleanse concoctions I’ve seen.

Reducing Cholesterol In The Blood
1998 European study observed that over a 6 week period, diatomaceous earth intake was associated with a significant reduction of serum cholesterol at any time point, reaching a minimum on week six.

The Added Benefits of Silica
Another benefit is DE contains a large amount of silica, which is an essential micronutrient that helps with hair and nail growth. Silica also is key in aiding the balance of calcium and magnesium in the body, ultimately helping your hormones stay in check. If you are taking collagen to support skin, nail, and hair health, silica directly assists in collagen formation.

It Gently Exfoliates The Skin
You can mix a ½ tsp into your face wash or body wash for a gentle exfoliant. I like to mix it into some organic raw honey and use gentle circular motions on my face, then rinse with warm water.

What Can Diatomaceous Earth Do For Humans?

How to do a Parasite Cleanse using Diatomaceous Earth:

  1. Start out with 1 tsp mixed into 8 oz of water. Drink this either 1 hour before a meal or two hours after a meal. The goal is to have an empty stomach.
  2. Repeat this every day for ten days and increase your amount of DE slowly up to 2 tsp if you like.
  3. Once you hit ten days, take a break for seven days
  4. Then repeat again for 10 days. You may see some interesting stools being passed. Just a warning!

There are a few side effects you may experience when doing a parasite cleanse with DE.  

  • The first is some constipation, but drinking an extra glass of water after you DE drink can help with this.
  • Then, due to the parasite die-off, you can experience headaches, malaise, brain fog, and trouble sleeping. These side effects appear because when parasites die and detach from your intestinal lining, they can release ammonia and nitrogen into your system.

What Can Diatomaceous Earth Do For Pets?

When given internally or applied externally, DE can help bring down your pet’s internal or external parasitic load as well. From fleas to lice to worms, DE is a safe and effective way to help give your pet’s health a fresh start.

Steps For Deworming Cats Using DE

  1. Mix ½ tsp for cats under 7lbs / 1 tsp for cats at about 10lbs / 1 ½ tsp for cats over 10lbs. into a single serving of wet food every day for ten days.
  2. Then give them a seven-day break
  3.  Repeat again for another ten days. Be sure to keep their water bowls clean and filled because they will be thirstier!

Steps For Deworming Dogs Using DE

  1. Mix ½ tsp for under 25lbs / 1 tsp for 25-50lbs / 1 tbsp for over 50 lbs into a single serving of wet food every day for ten days.
  2. Then give them a seven-day break.
  3. Repeat again for another ten days. Again, be sure to keep their water bowls clean and filled because they will be thirstier.

For cats, it’s important to note that you may want to do a deep litter box clean on day five of the DE cleanse to stop the potential for reinfection of internal parasites. This means around the litter box as well. If you have carpeting around the litter box, sprinkle a ½ cup of DE with a flour sifter and let it sit for 30 minutes, then vacuum it up with a shop vac or filterless vacuum (otherwise it will clog the filter and kill your vacuum’s motor). We also use a lavender essential oil and white vinegar cleaning solution (20 drops to 16 oz) to clean the baseboards around the litter box.

To kill external parasites, don a pair of rubber gloves and a long sleeve shirt. For a dog, carefully sprinkle ½ cup into their coat and rub it in gently with your gloved hands. For a cat, ¼ cup will do the trick. It’s best to do this outside if you can in the open air so you don’t breath in the DE.
