Diatomaceous Earth Removes Heavy Metals

heavy metals

Firstly, heavy metals are taking the world by storm in the air, water, and food we eat!  Secondly, heavy metal accumulation in the digestive tract has become a plague of sorts that is slipping through routine physical exams and even colonoscopies.  Really the only way to know if you are high in metals is if you request a blood draw or to get physically sick from the metal itself.  This is something that should not happen.  Food can be to blame also as we are what we eat and the FDA allows such garbage to be added to our food.  Furthermore, we are to blame for not taking care of our bodies and finding products that help remove the unwanted metals.  Lastly, let us introduce you to food grade diatomaceous earth and the help it has brought to many that battle excess heavy metals.


What is Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth?

Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth forms by Diatoms absorbing the mineral content within a water body to form a shell around their cell membrane.  These diatoms in this particular case absorbed a high amount of silica and low amount of metals within this particular body of water in the Reno, NV region of the United States.  Over millions of years, these diatoms build up on top of each other forming a huge fossilized deposit.  Literally, these diatoms were formed when dinosaurs roamed the earth!  Now the diatom itself is a particular one called the Aulacoseira diatoms created in the Miocene Epoch

More about how it’s formed and what it is!

The shell formed around the diatom’s cell is considered to be primarily amorphous silica.  Its shape and hardness have everything to do with how it works.  It hardness keeps it from dissolving like other hard minerals.  The diatom’s tubular shape and holes along the diatom’s wall allow it to absorb moisture, hence its use as an anti-caking agent!  The tubular shape of the diatom gives it more surface area than other shaped diatoms and this means it has greater absorptive capacity with the holes that open to the center.  This allows the diatom to absorb unwanted fungus and bacteria within the gut!   Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth does not swell in the stomach and has no physical or chemical capability to absorb nutrients, medicines, or herbs.

Is Diatomaceous Earth safe?

Firstly, Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is almost all silica at 89% and is pure white to off-white in color, showing its purity.  There are other mines of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth here in the US and world.  Those other mines differ in product quality.   They contain way too much heavy metal and other minerals.  Lastly, Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is OMRI organic and Generally Regarded as Safe (G.R.A.S.) for human consumption by the USDA and FDA.  Lastly, is diatomaceous earth safe?  Well, it has become one of the 370 food product classified as generally regarded as safe by the FDA.  That database (http://www.fda.gov/food/ingredientspackaginglabeling/gras/scogs/ucm2006852.htm) includes food ingredients that have exhibited no harmful side effects in any significant studies to date.  Diatomaceous earth is a prized and valuable substance for its natural heavy metal detoxification.


Detoxing Heavy Metals Using Diatomaceous Earth

Firstly, food grade diatomaceous earth attracts positively-charged pathogens (bacteria, virus, heavy metals, parasites, pathogenic fungus) from the digestive tract.  Its unique honeycomb and negative charge help to keep toxins bound to it as everything flows out the bowel.  It safely passes the toxin out your bowel in a way that few or no other products can.  Secondly, please start by mixing 1 level teaspoon into a beverage of choice once per day in your morning hours.  Please continue to take this dose every day for a period of 1 week.  Furthermore, every week thereafter, please up your dose by 1 level teaspoon until you reach 1 level tablespoon.  Continue to take 1 level tablespoon every day for as long as you wish!  Nothing wrong with detoxifying toxins from your digestive tract on a daily basis.  Try to encourage yourself to drink more water and eat very healthy.
