Diatomaceous Earth and Healthy Foods For Skin Health

More and more we hear of digestive tract problems in our clients and more often than not, this will accompany other problems in the body and most notably, the skin health of a person.  How many of us suffer with dry skin or how about acne?  I find it is a lack of essential nutrients getting to this connective tissue system.  One of those missing nutrients is silica found within Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth.  Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth contains roughly 35mcgs of silica within 1 tablespoon.  Mix this into your favorite beverage of soft food just once per day.  Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth contains a negative ion so it will help to draw out positively charged toxins in the gut that interfere with proper absorption of any key vitamin and nutrient.  This is why so many report beneficial results to their skin when they ingest this product.  So, a clean colon is a healthy body through and through.  But this isn’t enough for skin health….
