Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth

When Diatomaceous Earth is taken into the body it is working 3 different ways:

Diatomaceous Earth1st: As you can see from the picture of Diatomaceous Earth – (magnified 7000 times) – it looks like a cylinder full of holes–kind of like Rice Chex Cereal. This cylinder has a very strong negative charge. As these millions of cylinders move through the stomach and digestive tract, they attract and absorb bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals. These are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. In addition, any larger parasites that happen to be in the stomach of digestive tract are “cut up” and killed by the sharp edges of the Diatomaceous Earth. All of these activities result in a much healthier body with less sickness. We often hear the phrase “I just feel better” with our Diatomaceous Earth users. This better feeling comes from all the “junk” being removed from the body and by giving our immune system the “jump start” it needs.

2nd: Diatomaceous Earth is very hard. On the harness scale where diamonds are a 9, Diatomaceous Earth is a 7. This is very important, because as those millions of tiny hard and sharp Diatomaceous Earth cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they “scrub” the walls. After only a few months of taking Diatomaceous Earth, the intestine wall is no longer coated with mucus and molds but CLEAN!! The advantages of this are several:

  1. Regular bowel movements (This is the #1 comment everyone makes about DE)
  2. Healthier Colon. This is especially important as we get older. A clean healthy colon keeps away polyps, cancers, and ulcers. Today, many are spending thousands of dollars to get colonics to do the same thing as Diatomaceous Earth does.
  3. Many users report increased energy and needing less sleep. This is a result of all the food and nutrients that are taken in being better absorbed into the blood stream. With a coated colon–many nutrients never get absorbed.

3rd: A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica.¬†¬†¬†One of the benefits of Silica is that it helps to destroy bad fats. Everyone that we know that is taking Diatomaceous Earth has lowered their cholesterol by 40-50 points. Everyone is also amazed at how their high blood pressure goes down. Go to the page on “Human Use” and review all of the benefits of silica to the body.

  1. Sore joints and ligaments feel better
  2. Skin clears up (acne-age spots-psoriasis)
  3. Hair and nails are stronger and grow faster
  4. Stronger teeth and gums
  5. Healthier respiratory tract–less coughing
  6. Menopause has less symptoms
  7. Healthier urinary tract

The benefits of silica are many. In today’s grains, there is actually a shortage of silica. Years ago, the silica found in our foodstuffs was adequate, but with today’s hybrids and depleted soils, only about 1/3 of the silica needed is supplied in our food. Diatomaceous Earth is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs.

Human Use

Diatomaceous Earth – Human Use

Diatomaceous Earth is 84% Silicon Dioxide (Silica)

There is no life without Silica !!

In 1939, the Nobel Prize winner for chemistry, Professor Adolf Butenant, proved that life can not exist without Silica.

In the 2003 book “Water & Salt” Dr. Barbara Hendel states: “Silica it the most important trace mineral for human health!”

Silica plays an important role in many body functions and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption. The average human body holds approximately seven grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures for other important minerals such as iron.

Lets look at some of the benefits of Silica:*

Lower High Blood Pressure!

Of the thousands of people that are using Diatomaceous Earth,¬†most that have¬†high blood pressure have reported that it has gone¬†down.¬† It has been so¬†thrilling to talk to people all over the United States and have them tell their stories.¬†We are not just talking a few points—we are talking about LIFE-CHANGING numbers.¬† Doctors are amazed–customers are amazed—You will be too.

Lower high Cholesterol!

Just as Diatomaceous Earth has been lowering blood pressure–it has also been lowering cholesterol!!.¬† I have not talked with one person that has high cholesterol that has not had lower numbers after taking Diatomaceous Earth.¬† Most are reporting 40-60 points lower after only 2 weeks on DE.¬† I know it sounds too good to be true, but it works!

 Just recieved this feedback from a user:

“I have been on DE for 6 months now and I just had my lab work done. My triglycerides have been reduced from 495 down to 203. I have so much more energy and my hair and nails are growing so much better. My husband has had High Blood Pressure¬†and since being on the dirt, his BP is now in the normal range. It has also helped with my varicose veins and I no longer have any pain from them..”

Rhonda from Louisiana

 My joints feel so much better!!

Osteoporosis is a symptom of the aging process. As calcium in our body system depletes, our bones become brittle and weak. Taking only a calcium supplement can not correct or stop this threatening and crippling disease because the body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica. Evidence suggests that, instead of affecting healing, supplemental mineral calcium, on the contrary, accelerates the leaching away of bone calcium and thus hastens the degenerative process of osteoporosis and similar diseases that affect the supportive and connective tissues in the human body.

For osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the bodies self repair process. Osteoporosis symptoms attack women primarily after menopause but the degenerative process starts much earlier in their younger days. More women are dying of fractures caused by osteoporosis than of cancer of the breast, cervix, and uterus combined.

Silica is responsible for the depositing of minerals into the bones, especially calcium. It speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. More and more research evidence shows that through a transmutation process, silica is turned into calcium when it is needed. That is why some scientists refer to silica as a precursor of calcium. Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn silica into calcium that the bones need.

Natural Weight Loss!

We have been getting hundreds of reports from all over the United States that DE is helping people lose weight.  Everyone is saying that DE taken in the morning helps curb their appetite throughout the day.  Just one more reason to take it everyday!!

Nature’s Internal Cosmetic!

In Europe and Asia Diatomaceous Earth is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. They have no FDA.

Tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging when connective tissue develops an increasing inability to retain moisture when left unassisted. Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue. With silica, vitality and life, which are often lost as the years accumulate, can be naturally maintained or even restored to your skin. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body has enough silica glucosaminoglycane, the collagen will make us look younger. Silica helps with skin problems and injuries including itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, callouses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, benign skin sores, insect bites and bed sores.

If you regularly follow a silica regimen, your skin will keep its young look. A good silica supplementation program works far better than other products for maintaining healthier and longer lasting collagen.

Hair That Grows!

Hair is natures greatest beauty enhancer. Hair deserves to be pampered. Hair at 90 micrograms per gram is almost as rich in silica as are healthy bones, which contain 100 micrograms per gram. Silica is a major component of hair. Using a good silica supplement should be part of your ongoing hair care program for revitalizing hair. Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures beautiful shine, luster and strength.

Teeth and Gums!

By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also prevents bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that causes the loosening of teeth, which could ultimately lead to tooth loss. Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones,teeth and also lessens inflammation.

Tough As Nails!

Your nail plates are complex protein structures that grow four to five millimeters per month on average. With silica supplementation, fragile nails become normal within a short period of time. Silica will beautify the appearance of your nails and improve their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to breaking.

The restorative effects of silica will be most noticeable on your hair, skin, nails and teeth. Our skin and hair require silica essentially for the same purpose as do other tissues. As we know, the supporting collagen underneath the skin enhances elasticity and beauty. Collagen owes that quality to silica, which provides a beautiful complexion that is more than skin deep.

More Benefits!

  • Silica lowers bad cholesterol and raises good
  • Silica fades age spots
  • Silica stimulates metabolism for higher energy levels
  • Diatomaceous earth has a negative charge and bacteria has a positive charge. It is believed that diatomaceous earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in it’s honeycomb shaped skeletal form.
  • Silica supplementation helps repair and maintain vital lung tissues and protects them from pollution. By maintaining or restoring the elasticity of lung tissues, silica reduces inflammation in bronchitis.
  • It acts as a cough decreasing agent. Silica tones the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx, larynx) and reduces swelling because of its positive action on the lymphatic system.
  • Silica supplementation keeps menopause free of stress and helps to prevent many unwanted side-effects of menopause¬†
  • Silica works with other antioxidants to prevent premature aging and to preserve youthfulness.
  • Silica can help prevent kidney stones and heal infections of the urinary tract. It is a natural diuretic which can increase excretion of urine by 30 percent, thus flushing the water-excreting system and restoring normal function to these vital organs.
  • The presence of sufficient silica in the intestines will reduce inflammation of the intestinal tract. It can cause disinfection in the case of stomach and intestinal mucus and ulcers. Silica can prevent or clear up diarrhea and its opposite, constipation.
  • Silica will help normalize hemorrhoidal tissues.
  • In regulating and normalizing the bowels, silica has a pleasant side effect; it can alleviate lower back pain, which often troubles the elderly.
  • Silica proves effective with female discharge, abscesses and ulcers in the genital area and cervix, as well as mastitis (especially for breast feeding mothers).
  • The intake of silica acts as a supportive treatment for inflammation of the middle ear. Because of the beneficial effectiveness on the lymphatic system, silica can be used for swelling of the lymph nodes in the throat.
  • Has anti-inflammatory disinfecting, absorbing and odor binding effects.
  • Silica can normalize circulation and regulate high blood pressure (hypertension).
  • Silica can decrease vertigo, headache, tinnitus (buzzing of the ears) and insomnia.
  • Silica can help diabetes by promoting synthesis of elastase inhibitor by the pancreas.
  • Silica can help arterial disease by strengthening the blood vessels. Studies confirm that with age, silica disappears from the aorta, the heart’s key blood vessel thus weakening its critical connective tissue and resulting in a greater cardiac risk.
  • Silica can help prevent Tuberculosis.
  • By improving the elasticity of the joints, silica helps rheumatism.
  • Silica has inhibitory effects on coronary diseases.
  • Silica can help avoiding or alleviating Alzheimers disease by preventing the body from absorbing aluminum and may flush out aluminum from the tissues. Silica can stimulate the immune system.

Dosage:

Daily silica needs of humans are 20-30 mg. In Years past, our bodies would get enough silica from our diet. Unfortunately, many of the foods we now eat have lost their nutritional value due to soil nutrient depletion, food processing, and chemicals. Supplemental use of Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is essential to total body health.

In my studies and searches of the internet, people are taking 1 or 2 heaping tablespoons of Diatomaceous Earth every day. Myself and my family take 1 heaping tablespoon per day.¬† We mix it with grapefruit juice. Others¬†are mixing it with water, soda pop, juice, or whatever liquid they enjoy. Some are even putting DE in protein shakes, applesauce and yogurt. Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is Food Grade and very pure. There is no unpleasant taste. Since it will not dissolve, stirring several times while drinking will prevent settling. Some have experienced higher energy levels, so it is probably better not to take it right before sleeping. No worry about getting too much–any excess silica not needed by the body is automatically eliminated through the blood stream, kidneys and intestines.

Pets and Animals

Diatomaceous Earth Flea Control,Tick Control, Worm Control


Pets: Our best friends come in all shapes and sizes. Protect them with Diatomaceous Earth. When lightly rubbed into their coats or dusted on their premises, it is very effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and birds. It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have. When using as a de-wormer, mix the Diatomaceous Earth into their food as follows:

  • Large Cats – 1 teaspoon
  • Kittens – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Dogs 100 lbs + -¬†1-2 ¬†tablespoons
  • Dogs 50 – 100lbs – 1 tablespoon
  • Dogs Under 50 lbs – 1 teaspoon
  • Mini dogs – 1/2 teaspoon

As pets get older, they also get sore joints. With Diatomaceous Earth in their diet they will feel better.  Apply to moist kennel areas to reduce odors, dry the area, and prevent pest breeding.  Deodorizing and absorption are natural functions of DE, so add to kitty litter to absorb odors and keep the litter box drier.

Veterinary naturopaths Drs. Kim Bloomer & Jeannie Thomason, hosts of the
online radio show, Animal Talk Naturally
http://www.animaltalknaturally.com , have this to say about our Permaguard
Diatomaceous Earth:
“Our work is based on natural, preventive care for animals so of course we
are always on the lookout for good, quality NATURAL products to help our
clients and our listening audience that won’t break the bank. We’ve long
been proponents of FOOD-grade diatomaceous earth as a natural pest control
for both external and internal use in animals. Earth Works Health has
provided both the high quality and affordability of DE in their Permaguard
product that we look for in our own personal use as well as for our clients.”

Bed Bugs

GET RID OF BEDBUGS WITH DIATOMACEOUS EARTH
Kill Bedbugs Naturally – Be Safe To Pets and People

Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite!Bed bugs are EVERYWHERE!! Get rid of bedbugs safely with Diatomaceous Earth. Bedbugs are an epidemic! Bedbugs are not your fault -you can pick up bedbugs from hotel rooms and infected places and innocently bring bedbugs home. To kill bedbugs naturally and get rid of bedbugs safely, use our Diatomaceous Earth. You can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to get rid of bedbugs with an exterminator and spread dangerous and often ineffective chemicals, or you can kill bedbugs naturally using safe, inexpensive Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth to get rid of bed bugs yourself! Diatomaceous Earth is both effective and safe.

Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is totally organic and safe. ¬†Diatomaceous Earth is Mother Nature’s product with no harm to the environment, pets or to people. Diatomaceous Earth is not actually an “earth” but it is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called DIATOMS. Diatomaceous Earth Kills Pests Naturally – No Synthetic Chemicals, No Odor or additives of any kind. The microscopic DE particles are deadly to the bedbug. The particles attach themselves to the bed bugs body and physically “scratch them to death!” Because DE kills them mechanically, they cannot become immune to it like they do with so many of the chemicals today. Because it’s a mineral once you put it down it stays there and keeps working. You may want to clean it up once and while and add more to get rid of the dead bugs and parts they leave behind but DE lasts forever.

To treat you bedbug infestation safely, do the following:

  1. Wash all bedding in hot water—add a little Clorox with the soap. Dry in dryer on the highest heat setting. If you can, use a steam cleaner on your mattress and box springs.

     

  2. Make sure bed is not touching any walls. Also make sure there is no skirting or any thing other than the 4 legs touching the floor.

     

  3. With you hands or an applicator, dust some food grade Diatomaceous Earth into the mattress and ridges on the outside of the mattress. Dust some DE between the mattress and box springs also.

     

  4. Spread some DE all over the room, working into the carpets and corners of the room. Yow may have to remove the bottoms of furniture and dust some in them also. Put a large pile around each of the 4 legs—since bed bugs cannot fly, the 4 legs are the only way the bedbugs can get to you. Repeat this once a week for 4 weeks.

     

  5. You can also take off the outlet covers and using a plastic dispenser—like our pest pistol–puff some DE into the walls. Bed Bugs love to live there and are the main way they spread from room to room. Be very careful—use nothing that would conduct electricity and shock you.

Some Interesting Bed Bug Facts:

  1. Bed Bugs are usually no more than 1/4 inch in length in their adult state and can engorge themselves with human blood in less than 15 minutes causing their bodies to fill to as much as three times its usual size. Fully engorged bed bugs bear little resemblance to their original state and are often thought to be a different insect altogether.

     

  2. Bed bugs can lay between one and five eggs per day with an incubation period of 10 days in warm weather (slightly longer when cool). These newly hatched bed bugs will require five significant blood feedings to reach adult size. They will molt in between feedings by shedding their exoskeleton. One mature they will begin the process of laying new eggs.

     

  3. Adult female bedbugs can lay more than 200 eggs during their lifetime and the new generation of bed bugs will immediately seek a blood meal and they might be looking at you through hungry compound eyes. When they are finished eating they leave tiny sores to remind you of their midnight binge.

     

  4. There are other types of bed bugs including the bat bug, the chimney swift bug and the swallow bug. All of these relatives survive on blood feeding, however these secondary parasites thrive on either bats or birds as their primary victims.

     

  5. Bed bugs feed on the blood of human beings but can suck blood from other animals as well. Birds and mice are the most common animals. Bed bugs most often feed at nighttime when people are asleep. When they feed, they inject a salivary secretion into the wound to prevent coagulation. The fluid can cause a person’s skin to itch and even become swollen. Scratching can cause sores which often become infected. Bed bugs are not known to transmit any human blood-borne pathogens.

     

  6. An adult bed bug is about 1/5-inch long, oval in shape and flat. They?re generally brown except after sucking blood. Their body then becomes swollen and the color changes to a dark red.

     

  7. Bed bugs like to hide in the cracks and electrical outlets in walls, behind wallpaper, base boards and picture frames, between beds and around the creases of mattresses and in bedding materials. They have a rather pungent odor which is caused by an oil-like liquid they emit. Bed bugs are often carried into houses by clothes, luggage, furniture, and bedding. Or sometimes even by humans.

     

  8. Bed bugs seek harborage in cracks and crevices. Common harborages in hotel rooms and cruise ship cabins include: folds & creases in bed linens, seams, tufts & under buttons on mattresses, in drapery pleats & hems, beneath loose wallpaper, in headboards, desks, entertainment centers and nightstands, behind base molding in wall-mounted artwork, etc.

 

Bed Bug Bites

The words “bed bugs” are enough to send most of us running with skin all aquiver at the thought of little blood-sucking creatures crawling all over us as we sleep. These little bugs are pests, to be sure, and they can be difficult to get rid of once they have decided to make your house their home, hiding during the daylight hours in cracks and crevasses where they are almost impossible to excise.

Because of this, you may not realize right away that bed bugs are the source of the annoying sores on your legs when you wake up in the mornings. Bed bugs are attracted by both warmth and the presence of carbon dioxide, which is what we exhale in breathing. The bugs climb up onto your skin and pierce you with two hollow tubes, one of which injects anti-coagulants and anesthetics. The other tube is used to withdraw your blood, feeding for about five minutes before returning to their hiding places.

There may be a cluster of bites instead of singular ones when you awake, and this is typically caused by disturbing the bugs while they feed, causing them to detach and return to feed momentarily. A well fed bedbug can live anywhere from four to six months, while a dormant one might live without feeding for up to 18 months.

The bites can be found just about anywhere on your body, with exposed bits of skin being the preferred feeing ground for the bugs, making your face a target along with arms and legs. The bits cannot be felt at first, but as the anesthetics wear off and the skin begins to react to the injections, the bites can make themselves felt minutes or even hours after the bedbugs have returned to hiding.

If you have bedbugs, your infestation can get worse very quickly since a female bedbug can lay up to five eggs per day, and up to around 500 eggs in her lifetime. Since it takes only five weeks for hatched nymphs to grow to maturity, your problems could expand exponentially within a relatively short period of time, and infestations can be hard to control.

The History of Bed Bugs:

Bed bugs have been around for centuries. Documentation reaching as far back as the 17th century has told about infestations of bed bugs. In the United States, bed bugs were very common until about World War II. With the introduction of such pesticides as DDT, a great decrease in infestations occurred. It was not until the last decade that reported cases gave an indication of a possible rise in bed bug infestations.
 

Authorities believe that the rise in reports can be attributed to the extermination tactics of pest control today. Today, many pest control experts use baiting tactics for in home infestations of such things as ants, roaches, and spiders. These baiting tactics work well for their intended subjects, but since bed bugs are blood feeders, they do not fall for the baiting tricks used. This change in exterminating technique has contributed to the rise in reported bed bug infestations.


 

Identifying a bed bug:
 

Adult bed bugs are generally flattened and reddish brown in color. They resemble apple seeds in appearance and size. Newly hatched nymphs look very much like adults. Although they are almost colorless, they gain their reddish brown color as they mature. The adult bed bug may lay up to 5 eggs daily. These eggs are almost impossible for humans to see with the naked eye, and resemble a flake of dust on a dark surface.

A quick look at the facts:

Bed bugs are small bloodsucking insects that feed on humans & other warm-blooded animals.

Bed Bugs often hide in mattresses but they can also survive in furniture, behind wall coverings and pictures/paintings. They will crawl and nest inside tiny crevices anywhere indoors, as long as there is a source of food (blood).

While bed bugs do not transmit any pathogens or diseases, their bites usually result in swollen red, itchy welts.

Bed bugs are typically nocturnal insects (they creep about at nighttime).

There are other types of bed bugs including the bat bug, the chimney swift bug and the swallow bug. All of these relatives survive on blood feeding, however these secondary parasites thrive on either bats or birds as their primary victims.

Small reddish or brownish spots on one’s linens are often the first sign of an infestation. These spots are the bed bug’s droppings. Another sign is swelling where you’ve been bitten.

Bed bugs are not necessarily a sign of unkempt/dirty homes or buildings.

A female bed bug can lay as many as 500 eggs during her lifetime.

Bed bugs are less than 1/4? in length, flat, and oval-shaped like; a bit like a sunflower seed.

Bed bugs can go up to a year without a blood meal

A bed bug’s saliva features an anesthetic to numb the pain as it?s biting. It also contains anti-coagulant to keep the blood of it’s meal host flowing.

Furniture that is inspected should be inspected thoroughly. Remove pull out drawers and inspect any and all small creases and openings.
 

Taking apart furniture is often advised you want to get at the source of the bed bugs infestation. Doing this in a garage or outdoors is preferred if possible.
 

The covering on the bottom a box spring bed should be taken off for inspection and treatment measures. If the infestation is severe, you may want to dispose of the mattress.
 

Bed bugs are many times also found underneath the edges carpets, where ceilings and walls meet, behind light switch covers and outlets, in clothes, inside appliances, and behind baseboards and carpet stays.

Itching:

There are a number of things you can do to stop the itching.

  1. Apply a calamine lotion to each bed bug bite of area of bites.

     

  2. Do not scratch the bed bugs bites. Everyone will react differently to bed bug bites.  Some people may not even notice them. Others will have a very intense itching sensation.  Scratching only makes the itching worse and can actually cause an infection.
     

Bed bugs dangers:/

When a bed bug bites it injects an anti-blood clotting chemical into the skin.  Some people may actually be allergic to bed bugs and the degree of itching is determined by how allergic a person is.  If you notice any signs of infection, call your physician IMMEDIATELY.  Scratching the bites can also result in an infection.  If you do not get an infection, the bites are simply an irritating nuisance. It may take a few weeks for the itching to subside and for the welts to disappear.  BED BUGS DO NOT CARRY PATHOGENS as mosquitoes or ticks do!

Organic Pest Control

Diatomaceous Earth – Organic pest control

 

Household Pests:

Diatomaceous Earth is a natural, organic insect killer. Diatomaceous Earth kills by physical action and not by chemical so there is NO harm to pets or humans.  The tiny hard and sharp diatoms scratch off the insects waxy coating, causing it to dehydrate.
Use Diatomaceous Earth for control of roaches, silverfish, ants, fire ants, bedbugs, lice, mites, spiders, earwigs, flies, fleas, box elder bugs, crabs(std), Pubic and hair Lice, scorpions, crickets, and many other insects. Diatomaceous Earth can be used in and around the home, yard, animal housing, etc.  Sprinkle a 2 inch wide border around the foundation of your house to prevent insects from entering.

      Diatomaceous Earth will not harm earthworms or beneficial soil microorganisms.

A Word About BEDBUGS

All over the United States we are seeing an outbreak of bedbugs. DE will not only kill the bedbugs you have, but will do it safely without chemicals. Remember-bed bugs cannot fly, so make sure bed is away from the wall and there is no bedding touching the floor. Surround each of the 4 legs of the bed with DE–this will kill them as they try to get on the bed the only way possible. Dust some DE on the matress and bedding–especially in the creases. Dust DE in the carpets and in corners of room. Remove electrical outlet covers and puff some DE inside the walls. The “Pest Pistol” works great for this. Keep this routine up for several days untill no more bed bugs.

Pubic Lice(Crabs) and  Hair Lice:  Dust Diatomaceous Earth on all areas of the body that are infested with the Lice (Crabs).  Dust your bedding and rooms you have been in with DE also.

¬

Plant Pests:

For control of aphids, white fly, beetles, loopers, mites, snails, slugs, leaf hoppers, and others, use Diatomaceous Earth inside your home, greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass, up to and including day of harvest. For dry application of Diatomaceous Earth use a duster and cover entire plant, apply to both top and bottom of leaf. For young plants, as little as two pounds per acre may be adequate. For larger plants, five lbs. per acre is probably sufficient. Diatomaceous Earth will need reapplication after a rain. Applies best when there is dew or after a light rain. It is a long lasting, effective powder. The insects can not build up resistance. DE can be sprayed or whitewashed by mixing 1 cup DE with 1/2 Gallon of water.  Stir frequently and spray/paint trees, yards, and fences. Diatomaceous Earth will not harm earthworms or beneficial soil microorganisms. Wear a dust mask when applying large amounts of it.

Stored Grain:

Just add 7-10 lbs. of Diatomaceous Earth to each ton of grain as it is conveyed into the storage. When added to grain, it not only makes it flow better, Diatomaceous Earth kills the bugs that are present and protects the grain from further invasions. Bugs can not become immune because they are killed by physical action, not chemical.

Any food grade diatomaceous earth uses other than those approved by the EPA, FDA, or USDA are strictly reports of what hundreds of users as well as we ourselves have done with diatomaceous earth.

Diatomaceous Earth FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We get many questions asked to us every day — KEEP ON ASKING–we want to answer all your questions.¬† Here is a list of FAQ you might want to look over 1st to see if the answer is here:

1. How can something that kills bugs be safe for me and my pets?

Remember–Diatomaceous Earth kills insects by PHYSICAL¬†action—not chemical.¬† Hundreds of the microscopic DE get all over the insects body.¬† As the insects move, the DE scratches the waxy coating off of them and they dehydrate and die.¬† Because the DE particle is so small–it has no harm to people and pets.¬† It is a simple mineral—silica.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†

2. Is the same product used for killing bugs and helping people?

The same product is used for all applications: People, Pets,¬†¬†Livestock and for insect control inside and outside.¬† The product is Perma-Guard Food Grade Fresh Water Diatomaceous Earth–the purest DE on the planet.¬† It is the ONLY product we sell, so you do not have to worry about getting the right product for the right application—it works for everything.

3.  How much DE should a person take each day?

Everyone I know takes 1 heaping tablespoon per day in liquid of their choice.  I use juice, but many just put in a glass of water.  I know some who take 2 or 3 tablespoons a day, but that is usually for a severe problem they are trying to correct.  I also know some who just take a teaspoon per day to start out with and work up to a tablespoon.

4.¬† I have heard DE is dangerous–especially breathing it in.

Food Grade DE often gets confused with filter grade DE.¬† Filter grade DE starts out as food grade, but it is heated to about 1000 degrees and chemicals are added to crystallize it.¬† This works great for filtering but is dangerous to people and animals. Breathing the crystallized product in over long periods of time causes a disease called silicoses.¬† The world health org. has said that DE needs to be less than 2% crystalline silica in order to be considered safe.¬† The filter grade DE is 60% crystalline!! — Stay away from it — it is dangerous!!¬† Perma-Guards food grade DE on the other hand is less than .50% crystalline silica.¬† As you can see, that is more than 4 times less than it needs to be to be considered safe! Daily use of Food Grade DE for people, pets and around the garden is perfectly safe.¬† Food Grade DE should be treated like any other dusty product, if you are going to breath it in over long periods of time, wear a dust mask —- but it should in no way be compared to the dangerous crystallized filter grade.

5. Will DE interfere with any medication I am now taking?

¬†Diatomaceous Earth is a mineral—silica.¬† We have never ran into a situation in the thousands of orders sold where anyone has had a problem or reaction to taking DE.¬† If you have any questions as to interactions with medications you are taking—ask your doctor or pharmacist if taking a silica supplement will cause any problems.

6. If this stuff is so great, why have I never heard of it before?

You have to remember that it is always “all about the money.”¬† No one is going to spend millions of dollars and years of research on a product that you dig out of the ground and that cannot be patented.¬† Diatomaceous earth is one of those hundreds of natural products that get shunned by most doctors and drug companies.¬† Most DE is sold and used by someone who has a friend or relative that has used it and gotten results.¬† You would think that is would be just the opposite—that a natural, safe, non-chemical and drug product that is inexpensive and has so many uses would be in every home in the country, but chemicals and drugs are where the big money is, so that is what gets promoted and used.

7.  Do you have pricing for large amounts of DE?

Yes!!  We have discounts starting for as little as 5 bags.  Of course the more you get the less the product is and the less the freight is.  We have several that buy a pallet at a time. (36-50# bags)  Depending where you live, you can get a pallet delivered for around 900-1000 dollars total cost.  Call 1-865-684-4545 for exact pricing.

8.  Do you ship to other countries?

Yes, we will ship anywhere.  Since the web site is not set up for international shipping, you need to call us at 1-865-684-4545 to get a quote.

9. Can I pickup DE myself to save shipping costs?

No

Human Use Testimonials

Human Use Testimonials

These are not exaggerated or made up! — they have all been given to us 1st hand:

It Works!

In the process of placing my second order, I wanted to send an email regarding how Diatomaceous Earth worked for me. I am no longer awakened in the middle of the night with hip pain, but the first thing my husband and I noticed was not being tired all the time. Having energy throughout the day, and not crashing midafternoon equals more projects, activities etc accomplished at the end of the day. We have shared this product with some friends. One of our friends is a painter by trade. He has (had) arthritic pain in his pinky finger which he could not bend to touch his palm without excrutiating pain, making it hard to work . After taking DE for about 11/2 weeks-he can now bend it with much, much less pain. Another friend who is balding on top, went to his barber. As the barber was giving him his usual flattop haircut he asked him what he’s been doing becau se his hair was growing! Needless to say our friend is very excited about this product, which is why I am about to order 50lbs. One more thing. Carpenter Ants DO NOT like this stuff. I sprinkled it around the foundation of my home and have not seen an ant anywhere!! Thank you for offering this product and for keeping it so very affordable!!

A “miracle” in my life

I have to tell you that Diatomaceous Earth is a ‘miracle’ in my life. For the past 5 years or so, my whole right side has been in pain. The last few weeks, the pain was excruciating. I had never contemplated hip replacement surgery, but the pain was so bad I would have had to do something if the DE had not started relieving the pain. I walked with a complete limp on the right side and could not bend down nor lift my right leg up to put on a shoe. After only 7 days, my husband and family can not believe what DE has done for me. Looking forward to continued healing the next several weeks.

Thank-you,
Gabrielle

Thanks for being there!

Now, about my DE. Been on a rounded tablespoon a day for 3 weeks this Friday. And I can already say, “Where have you been all my life”?! My back ache was gone in 3 days, been bad for about 3 weeks prior. Dry skin in now shiny, no flakes. And had trouble all this year with right knee locking up and very painful, down on knees working in my gardens, well, that has stopped, too!!! AND, I got rid of flea infestation at my sisters house she had been fighting with chemicals the last 6 or 8 months!! Fantastic stuff!! Thanks for being there!

Sincerely,
Larry

Thanks

I want to thank you for selling such an excellent product. I have been using diatomaceous earth for at least 6 months and have noticed a tremendous change in my health. I am an athletic person and go to the gym 5 days per week in addition to my daily cardio routine. I am 56 and haven’t felt this good in 5 years. I have arthritis in my shoulders, hands and feet. I no longer feel pain in any of those joints when I weight lift. I seem to have more energy during the day which has enabled me to extend my workout time. I’ve also noticed my hair and nails growing faster and fatty nodules have disappeared. This product works for me and I am so grateful to the company.

Thank you!

Stunned by the results

Dear Friends,

After less than two weeks of taking “earth,” I’m stunned by the results. My sister said to take it slow. I took one treatment daily for three days and then increased it to two treatments daily. I try to take it earlier in the day as it gives me too much energy before bedtime.

Two days ago, I awoke in the middle of the night and noticed something. I had been suffering with severe pain in the bottoms of my heels. It was so severe that I couldn’t put any weight on it. People would have to help me up and down stairs so I wouldn’t fall. I realized in the middle of the night that I didn’t have anymore pain in my heels. Unbelieveable, because I have been suffering with this heel condition for two years or more.

Thanks so much. I’ll be telling my friends.

Andy Berard – Denver, Co.

Dear Earthworks,

I do have a personal testimony to the awesome effects that DE has provided me. I have suffered from hip pain due to severe arthritis and the recommendation from my doctor was hip replacement surgery. I am 51 years old and lead a very active and physical lifestyle up until two years ago. Golf and tennis were no longer possible due to the pain I received during that type of activity. I finally gave in and scheduled my hip replacement surgery back in October for December 27th 2007.
At the time of scheduling my surgery my son-in -law told me that he had family in New Mexico that suffered from severe arthritis and that Diatomaceous Earth had cured them. Of course being the huge skeptic that I am , I decided to research everything about DE and came to the educated conclusion , ” What the hell do I have to loose”. I started in October taking what I call the “DIRT” twice daily and within 2 weeks I started noticing a difference in how I felt. More energy. less pain in my joints and in my hip. Within 4 weeks I was 90% pain free. I called my doctor and postponed the surgery just in case this was a fluke because I had a huge golf trip planned for Arizona on Jan 18, 2007. Living in Colorado didn’t provide any opportunity’s to golf so the true test would be to see how my hip would do with 5 rounds scheduled for 3 days. Now, I am 51 years old and we are talking 90 holes of golf in three days. I haven’t golfed that many holes in the past two years because it hurt so much. We’ll we just got back from a beautiful weekend in Scottsdale, Az and I golfed like a rock star. I hung in there with the best of our group and I was “PAIN FREE”. The true test for the effects of DE were absolutely incredible. Needless to say I told my doctor to shove it and he won’t be operating on me and “THE DIRT ” and I are best friends. I hope you include this real testimony as to the Miracle of Mother Nature.(Diatomaceous Earth).

C.G., Pagosa Springs, CO

I am writing this in hopes that someone will read this and be helped like I am. I tried diatomaceous earth, using about 3 heaping tablespoons in a cup of water, to appease my husband. He said it would be good for my hair. It doesn’t taste bad, it actually is good. However a week later we were driving to the store; I looked down and noticed I had nails. I have bitten my nails since I can remember. I went out and bought polish. I could not believe how fast they were growing and the urge to bite them was no longer there. My hair was also thinning in front and it is now filled in. When my 25-year old sister was pregnant, she craved chalk. Her husband would actually go to the store and buy her chalk to eat. I gave her some of the diatomaceous earth and she loved it. She quit eating chalk and took the diatomaceous earth every day.”

Trip to another country

In September I went to Croatia. I experienced extreme sleepiness during and after my trip. I thought I had contracted a parasite, since I was drinking the water and later found out the water was not that clean. It was the same sleepiness I had experienced on my trip to Russia and I figured I had contracted Giardia, a parasite common in Russia. When I came home I began an aggressive herbal de-worming program, which is the same program I offered my clients. This program consisted of taking cloves, black walnut, wormwood combination and a product balled Rascal. I stayed on this treatment faithfully for three full weeks and even did higher dosages than was recommended in the directions. I figured I was relieved of any critters hanging on to my intestines. Right? WRONG! Two months later I went to a clinic and had live blood cell analysis to determine my condition. I was shocked to discover parasites in the blood. How could this be? I was following a program that was offered by some of the top parasatologists in the country. An angel came into my life recently. She was a client doing my supervised fasting retreat I offer in my residence. Bonnie GAVE me a container of Diatomaceous Earth and said “try it for you and your dogs”. What have I got to lose but a few wigglies, right? Hopefully! Guess what? After only 5 days of taking the recommended dose I passed a 5 inch creature determined by lab analysis to be a round worm. Not me! Not beautiful, charming, squeaky clean diet Millan! Yes. I guess they are right when they say 90 to 95 percent of us have parasites and worms. You see, they are usually a-symptomatic, so you could have them for years and never know it!

Kari – Nebraska

I just got back from the Doctor and he could not believe how much my cholerterol had went down!! No drugs–did it all naturally!! The Doctor even wrote down Diatomaceous Earth so he could do some research on it. My high blood pressure was also down. I do not like to take any medication, so I was very excited about my “natural” results. Also–for the 1st time in years I have fingernails!!! I can’t believe how fast and strong they are growing. My complexion has also cleared up. Never have had a really bad face, but always a zit here and there—but now—-smooth!!! I also love the way it makes my teeth feel when I dip my toothbrush in it.

I have been taking a tablespoon of Diatomaceous Earth every day for the last 3 weeks and I have noticed the 2 dime size age spots on the right side of my face have disapeared!

Pam – Nebraska

A little over 4 years ago I was involved in a bad car accident. My head hit the windshield and I was in the hospital for several days. Even after countless tests and “suggestions” the medical field has not been able to give me any relief to my daily headaches. I had pretty much come to terms with the fact that this was something I would endure my whole life. 3 week ago I started taking Diatomaceous Earth. After the 1st week, I noticed my headaches were GONE!!! I don’t know how it works—I don’t even care—all I know is that I can go through the day now pain free. I was so excited that I took some over to my ageing mom and had her start taking it. I went back about a week later and the 1st thing she said to me was “listen to this” she breathed in a deep breath from her nose and then let it out through her nose. She was also very excited as she has had blocked sinus for years. She also noticed that the skin sores by her bra line on her back were gone. I then took some over to my daughter who has acne. Her face is better now than it ever has been. I am a believer in Diatomaceous Earth!!!

Terry – Nebraska

What I really notice is that the joints in my feet and knees do not hurt anymore—that is exciting—but what really has me amaized is that hair is starting to grow back on my bald spot!!! This stuff is GREAT!!!

Leann – Nebraska

I am a natural skeptic about “cure all” products like this, but was given a free jug of it if I would just try it. I suffer from arthritis all over my body and figured I had nothing to lose. After just 2 weeks of taking it every day, I am a believer!!! Not only do my joints not hurt anymore, but they have even stopped popping every time I bend them. I just generally feel better all over!! My Cholesterol has went from close to 500 down to 160!! I no longer take lipitor at all. I have gotten several of my co-workers taking Diatomaceous Earth now and they all love it also!!

Tom – Nebraska

…to date, in addition to enhanced “regularity”, the most noticeable effect, since I’ve been taking the DE, is a significant decrease in joint and/or muscle/ligament pain in and around the joints, including areas where I have arthritis.

Anne – Nebraska

I am a registered esthetician in Nebraska. I have been amazed at how DE improves the quality of skin. Both my sister and I have noticed hom much better our complexions are since using DE. I give out samples to all my clients to use as a cleanser—so far everyone really likes it!!

Louie – Nebraska

I have been taking DE for 3 weeks now. I had my blood pressure checked today and was very pleasently suprised how far down it was. I actually cannot remember the last time it was so low. My brother has high blood pressure also, I’ll be sharing DE with him tomorrow!!

Russ – South Dakota

I’ve been taking DE for 4 weeks now and one of the things I have noticed is that it curbs my appetite. I have lost over 20 lbs!!! I also have my wife takeing DE and Her Blood Pressure and Cholesterol are both down. She also has severe headaches and has not had even one since DE. I am a smoker and have noticed I do not cough as much. I am convinced!!

Mrs Acklie – Nebraska

My arthritis in my back had gotten so bad, that when I got on the floor, I had to crawl over to a chair to pull myself back up. After 6 weeks of DE, I noticed I was feeling better, but was I pleasently suprised the other day when I was on the floor playing with my grandchild. He darted away and without realizing it, I jumped up and started chasing Him!! No Pain!! Thanks DE!!
¬

Karen – Nebraska

1st of all, my cholesterol is down — in fact, I cut my lipitor in half!! I introduced DE to my Sister and she loves it!! She says she just feels better! Last week She got the surprise of Her life. She has osteoporosis and gets her bone mass checked every few months. When she went in last week, her bone mass had actually increased!! She also noticed that all the age spots on her arm had disappeared.

Mrs. Jensen – Nebraska

I live on a farm and have to feed calves with a bottle. The arthritis in my hands had gotten so bad, that after feeding 3 calves, my hands hurt so bad I would literally cry!! After only 1 month of DE, I could feed all 7 or 8 calves without any pain!!

Helped Me in Many Ways!

I bought DE from you guys about 4 months ago and have been taking it consistently. I have noticed that my skin seems to be thicker, my hair grows faster and my teeth even look like they are thicker. I feel alot stronger and I am thankful for finding your product because before I started taking it I was a mess. I was in a car accident at the end of 2008 when a drunk driver hit us from behind. I was very slow at healing, but once I started to take this the pain from the whiplash has gone down almost completely now. I also use this as a toothpaste because regular toothpaste makes me gag! I even used it to get rid of roaches. I spent $500 on pest management, but it didn’t work. I put some of this down and roach problem was gone in a week. This stuff is so great it should be in everyone’s home and I hope people start to realise that the cures for our ailments are right under our noses and come from the humblest of places-diatoms! Thanks again and god bless you all I hope your business continues to grow!

Psoraisis Cleared Up!

I ordered some DE about 12 days ago and received it shortly thereafter. I started taking it 6 days ago and my right elbow is 95% cleared of the psoraisis I had there. I have had that about 2 years. I was amazed.
¬

Pain is GONE!!

There aren’t enough words to thank your company enough for giving me my life back. I’ve only been using the DE for 10 days now and already feel better then I have in 20 years. I can’t imagine how much better life is going to be as I continue! I am 45 and suffer from Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The pain from both had become unbearable, leaving me no choice but to sit and watch my family go about their lives. After only 3 days on the DE I noticed that my hands were no longer stiff and the pain in my back and hips had decreased. At the 5 day mark I noticed that I could get up and down without pain and now at the 10 day point, i’m getting around without assistance. I’m starting to get out again,no longer in fear of the pain and stiffness causing me problems. I’m getting my life back and you can’t put a price on that. THANK YOU

Hemorrhoids Gone!

My husband bought a small bag of your Diatomaceous Earth at a small health food store in Gunnison, CO, while on vacation. I have had terrible, swollen, bleeding and painful hemorrhoids for the last 12 days. I took one teaspoon dose of Diatomaceous Earth mixed in water, the next morning the hemorrhoids were 100% gone like I had never had them! I have had this problem on and off for 27 years. This is beyond what one would expect from any product. I did not use any other product externally or internally for hemorrhoids, so I know the Diatomaceous Earth gave my body what it needed to heal. My husband has had shoulder joint pain for years from injuries, he took one teaspoon and his shoulder pain is 100% gone in one shoulder and 80% in the other. Obviously our bodies are really in need of silica, we must have a silicia deficiency. I am very excited to see what other health corrections will occur. I have several autoimmune diseases, including Celiac, Hashimoto’s and Igg4 food immune responses to wheat, dairy, eggs, rice and green peas. I run tests on a regular basis so I will update you with any future progress on cytokines, autoimmune, etc. I have high Tumor necrosis factor alpha and a TH1 dominant immune system. K. from Arizona

Psoriasis GONE!

It’s a miracle! I ordered some of your diatomaceous earth and have taken it faithfully every day since – about 6 weeks now. I heard about it from my compounding pharmacist. They had a sheet of information and it caught my eye because it said it would help with psoriasis. I’ve suffered from psoriasis on my soles and palms for 14 years and nothing helped. I’ve been to at least 20 doctors, tried acupuncture, steroid creams and a myriad of oils and concoctions, none of which worked. At times the itching would be utterly unbearable, so I would scratch and then the skin would be raw and red and crack open. Now my palms and soles are completely healed – in only 6 weeks! The skin is pink and healthy and I am walking barefoot for the first time in years. In addition, my skin overall looks so much better. I used to have dark splotchy spots on my shins and that has cleared up as well. I’ve also noticed I have no more joint pain in my hips and lower back. Sometimes when you live with something for so long, you forget what it is to feel really good. And I feel like I’m 30 instead of 60! I used to hobble around for a few minutes if I had been sitting for awhile, trying to work the kinks and stiffness out. Now I just jump up like a little kid. There is no more stiffness and pain! I can easily pick up my little grandchildren. What a pleasure. Thank you for making this available. It has changed my life. I tell everyone I know about what it has done for me. God bless you and your family, Jean

female baldness gone!

Hello there. Just a quick note to let you know that DE has improved my life. In Oct 2009 I developed female pattern balness and lost 85% of my hair. I started using 1 tbs. daily of DE and in Jan 2010 my hair started growing back. Today I have as much hair as I’ve ever had and it’s in better shape than ever. Thank you so much for your product, it has given me my life back. Sincerely M. Idaho

Grow Hair!

This is a testimonial for the DE, I would like to tell you what it has done for me and my son-in-law. For him, he had a bald spot on the top of his head and he is only 38. He started taking the DE just once a day for 2 months now and he has new hair growing! Also our shoulders are very painful when we do something- he is a logger. Since taking the DE, the pain has lessened by half and we can both do things with our arms that were so very painful before.

Skin Problems

A friend said she heard it was good for skin problems. I had not heard first hand, but she said her friend who has skin problems because of allergy to the sunshine has had great results; my friend thought it would help my eczema, and it certainly has! The eczema on my neck that is common for folks in their fifties and older, is no longer sitting on the surface of my skin. It has gone below skin level, is no longer red and swollen, and 50% of the itching is gone! Yes! -I needed relief!

Less Food Cravings

Hi, I am 53 and until a few years ago had enjoyed very good health. But I have gained over 30 extra pounds and was having issues with psoriasis, fatigue and hormonal imbalance related symptoms. I haven’t been able to lose weight no matter how hard I try. Just looked on the calendar, it was “Earth Day” lol ,when I started taking your wonderful product, so that was about 2 weeks ago ! A dear friend shared some of her order with me. Within a couple of days, one of the most noticeable benefits was that my usual hunger and cravings for salty or sugary foods began to disappear. My energy level has improved, and the psoriasis is clearing up. I am also noticing a very calm contentment, or balanced feeling, not the usual shaky ~ almost a blood sugar imbalance feeling~ I was dealing with in between meals. I am feeling satisfied with smaller portions of food, and have lost a couple of pounds already and I know this will continue. In addition, I had been trying to quit drinking coffee for years, as I knew in my heart the Lord was convicting me that it was bad for my health. From about the third day of adding the DE to my morning drink (instant breakfast)or cereal, I haven’t had any desire to drink coffee. Thank you so much for providing it at such a reasonable cost ! I have told several people about DE–may the Lord continue to shine His blessing on your business and lives.

Can Make a Fist!

Another testimonial. I’ve been adding diatomaceous earth to my orange juice for about 1 week and for the first time in several years I can actually make a fist without severe pain! And my knee feels much better too. Also got rid of the ant infestation and the bugs on the plants. Can’t wait ’til the fleas comes this year! Now there is a statement for you!!! I thought about this for about a year before I ordered, and am sure glad I gave thinking and acted. THANKS! Your u-tube video is what convinced me to give it a try.

I wanted to send a testimonial in for Diatomaceous Earth and exactly what it has done for me! I have only been taking this product for two-three weeks at the most, and its results are outstanding. A brief background, I am 40 years old and for the past 22 years I have been suffering with Chronic Diarrhea 5-10 times a day and abdominal pains so bad that it would buckle me over and take my breath away! After only 2-3 weeks of taking two tablespoons a day with my Ice Tea..I am excited & thrilled to say that I no longer have Chronic Diarrhea and I have become regular. I no longer have the abdominal pains & to think I needed no DR. to heal this affliction. My other half, who only uses one Tablespoon a day, use to suffer from cramps in her legs and feet at night when she sleeps. They have virtually become non existent! This is a product I will order again and again & i have been recommending it to all my friends. Thank you for such a wonderful product! Matt

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!

I’ve just started using DE about a week ago…..I can’t believe the results I’m getting!!! My hair is shining and hasn’t done that in a long time. My age spots are disappearing. My brain is clearing…I don’t feel “foggy” anymore. I’ve noticed that my skin, which was starting to look like “old lady skin” is starting to look a lot younger. My teeth feel so clean and in the morning don’t feel “yukky”. I have energy again!! My constipation has gone. I’m telling everyone about DE. I can’t believe how great DE is!!! Thanks, thanks, thanks!!

Walking Normal Again!

I?m overjoyed! I am a 60 year old man. My Achilles Tendon on my left leg had been inflamed and causing extreme pain for almost one year. I was actually becoming desperate in looking for a remedy since I had no successful results from other methods. A friend of mine called me one evening and read to me a testimonial from your web site about a similar healing that one of you users had shared. With his recommendation and the testimonial I was ready to order. I have been taking the DE for approximately three months now, and my pain is virtually gone and the large lump at the bottom of my Achilles is about 50% smaller than it had been for almost one year. I can now walk normally again, without pain. I had become so accustomed to limping that I now feel like a kid again.

No More Pain!

After reading the testimonies of others, I ordered a 50lb. bag of DE and started taking it on March 19th to see what it might do for me. I have had back pain for many years and have been in the hospital for back pain spasms and all they could do was give me drugs for pain. Then I did therapy. I always had a constant low aching back pain, never would go away, no matter what I’d do. After two weeks of taking DE, one day I realized my low back pain was gone. I couldn’t believe it. I was amazed. What a Godsend this was. After being on it now for a tad over 2 months, I have noticed other changes in my health. I just plain feel better. I had RLS and believe it or not, that’s gone too. I can get comfortable in bed and am sleeping better at night. I’ve given up taking Benefiber every day as I seem to be more regular and not so constipated. Let me tell you, I am 70 years young and this DE is wonderful. I wish I had known about it long before now. My youngest daughter has had an itching problem from the time she was in middle school until now and she is 39. When I got this DE, I told her she ought to give it a try as I read DE was good for itching. I gave her some to try and miraculously she has stopped itching and can now take a shower too, without itching. She’s been on it a little less than a month. I simply can’t say enough good things about DE. I love it!!!!! Jean

Eaiser Periods

My name is Sheree, I have been taken DE daily since i got it. It has been about 2 months. My cycles have always been heavy, but since using DE they are mild to almost nothing! My bowl movements are also regular now. All of the buildup is starting to come out! I know it may sound nasty but DE is helping me alot. I am also starting to lose weight as well! Thanks Earthworks!

So Many Benefits!!

I started taking Diatomaceous Earth on Valentines day of 2010 and all I can say is THANK YOU! I have been keeping a DE journal because I wanted to document every possible change that I might experience. I used to have cramping every month since I was 12 years of age, but it wasn’t so bad after I had my fist child at age 18. At the age of 32 I got a tubal ligation done and the cramps from my menstrual cycle hereafter are so severe that I have to take Aleve, a pain medication in order to calm it down. Now that I am 44 year old and going through pre-menopausal symptoms, My hormones are out of whack and the pain continues to plague me. After taking the DE for 30 days the pain is gone completely. The anxiety from going through changes from my pre-menopause has subsided tremendously! I am overjoyed that I have had a stress-free painless period, and the calmness of my nerves. DE has regulated my bowel movements to everyday instead of every other day or every two days. I had not been regular in moving my bowels for years! This is the first time that I have been able to go when I should, even two times a day at times. In my stool I noticed strange things coming out, but not scary things. They kind of things that make you wonder and say “what is that!” I’d like to mention also, that my nails are growing at an alarming rate, and my hair shines much more than before. I have been getting compliments on how healthy my hair looks and how great my skin looks. Many people have told me that my skin is absolutely glowing and they want to know what am I doing. Generally, I am in good health and DE is helping me maintain that status. Thank you so very very much for this wonderful product! You can best believe I have shared my 50 lb bag with others and they have raved about the great manifestations the DE has given them. I am spreading this information along about what DE has done for me and others so can order their DE as well.

Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

Dear Smith Family and Earthworks Associates, I’m writing to thank you for giving me back my husband’s health. Not long ago, his blood pressure and cholesterol numbers were off the charts… on the bad side! Worrisome bad! No matter what we did, what prescriptions he took, what we ate… nothing seemed to make much of a difference. And then we discovered Earthworks! Actually, a dear friend told us about your product. He’s been taking it for decades, and he swears it’s what gives him his health and bountiful energy. We checked out your website… and thought, why not? We ordered 10 pounds of your product, and began taking it religiously every morning with coffee. We’re only a couple of months into taking it, but I can tell you that it’s already having a positive effect on my husband’s health! Just last month, only one month into taking the product, his bloodwork came back with astounding numbers… his cholesterol is 10 points LOWER than it was while taking the doctor prescribed medication! And our doctor said, “Well, it’s probably a combination of the two things.” But the truth is, he quit taking the prescription! So it’s absolutely due to the diatomaceous earth! And his blood pressure is now at normal numbers, too! We go back to the doctor in two days to have more bloodwork done, so we’ll see how much more of an effect the silica has had, but I honestly expect to hear good news. So, thank you… thank you for providing this product! I’m sold!

No More Sun Damage!

I have been taking one heaping tbsp. of DE in my morning juice since last fall. I wrote you shortly after starting it with an amazing healing in a wrist/thumb area with no cartilage to speak of that was finally pain free after only a few days of taking DE. My husband and I just got back from a trip to the UT/AZ border area. I have had sun allergy for going on 49 years and had to wear protective clothing at all times when I was out in the sun or my skin would look similar to alligator hide and would get water blisters as well. The itching and stinging after sun exposure was horrid and I never found anything to counteract the problem. To make a long story short, I was out in the desert sun during our vacation for hours at a time with NO SIGN of sun allergy! I actually tanned and my skin is baby soft! I also, due to allergies, had eczema outbreaks in my hair……they too are gone! I do not plan on ever running out of DE! Because of my successes, many of my friends and family are also taking DE. Thank you for making this wonderful product available and it doesn’t break the bank either! Thank you again and God Bless! Evanston, WY

Helps with Food Cravings!

I purchased the 10lb bag of DE because of my knee and lower back sciatica pain. Because of the anecdotal reports I expected to gain some relief and recover some mobility and flexibility which I have. In just two days from now it will be exactly 3 weeks since I first gulped down the dirt. Yes, my knees are feeling better day by day and my lower back is much more flexible and doesn’t ache anymore. This now allows me to walk my dog further which in turn increases my endurance and strength. I know it’s a cycle but when that cycle is broken it’s hard to start it up again. The surprise to me is what DE is doing to my food cravings. Not that I was a raging foodaholic but I could easily eat seconds when something tasted good and I am not a stranger to snacking. But not now, not since I began taking DE. Now I am only really hungry twice a day; once around noon and again around 6PM. I still love food and I have an eager desire to cook for my husband and myself but now, no matter how yummy my food is I eat only a single normal portion and sometimes even that is hard to finish. Basically, I eat whatever I want but the portions are tiny. I compare my plate to my husbands and my portions are noticeably smaller. I have always wondered what it is that makes a big eater different from someone who can leave really good food on the plate and be satisfied with that. While I still don’t know what makes the difference I do know for me DE is making something change somewhere. So I guess you can say DE is helping my knees in two ways. I’ll keep gulping down my DE and grapefruit juice as long as I can afford it. I believe in the miracle of the body God has given us and I guess DE is part of that miracle too. Thanks New Smyrna Beach, FL

Changed My Life

What a change in my life the DE has made.Off several meds now. Skin is glowing ,hair and nails are healthy too. In the garden is doesn’t bother the worms or tiny frogs. I get everybody I know to try it and all my family is crazy about it. DE has changed my life.

No More Pain

Here’s my testimonial: I started the Dirt only 2 weeks ago and already I’ve seen great changes! I had heel pain every day after work and had to have my husband massage my feet before bed. But now, no more pain! Not even a trace of heel pain. I did a face mask and my skin felt so soft. I love it. I drink it every morning with my orange juice and gives me a boost for the day. Wow! Fantastic product.

Severe Dry Skin GONE!

I have Psoriasis in the worse way on my hands and feet. I got it from using soap over the years I have neglected it and since spending hundreds of dollars trying to find a cure for it at the doctors office. It has been at least 15 years and 2 doctors later and the creams prescribed to me made it twice as bad. I was ashamed to use my hands when receiving change at the check out stand or to show my feet in the summer time. The skin is dry, flaky, red and sometimes bumpy and when people see it they are shocked and at times ask me what happened. I took a little of this product and mixed it with water and rubbed it into my skin and the flakes began to fall off. It improved the texture with just one use so I continued to uses it internally and externally. What I discovered after taking it two to three times daily, my skin now looks radiant, new an supple and yes youthful among other benefits. I’m 45 years old and I was beginning to see dry skin and poor elasticity on my face around my mouth and chin area– this bothered me, but to my suprise this problem is clearing up. This product is my fountain of youth. I also have more energy and exercise more because of it. I feel great!
¬
¬
So many problems–GONE!

I started taking DE three weeks ago. I am taking the rounded tablespoon each morning. I had pain in my hips at night, now it is gone. I had dry cracked skin on heels, elbows and hands, now it is gone. I had a dime sized age spot on my face and a number of smaller ones on my hands, now they are gone or going. I have more energy, and sleep better. I also have Type II diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and baldness. I can?t wait until my next checkup to see what happens with the labs on those. I also look forward with great anticipation to our first battle with fire ants.

Night Vision and Fibromyalgia

I have been taking Diatomaceous Earth for a little over 2 months with some interesting results. Within the first month, I could tell a difference in my nightvision. It was much sharper and more clear. As I have had less than wonderful night vision my entire life, this was indeed a wonderful surprise! Also, I have had fibromyalgia since my teens. I will be 55 in January. The last four years have brought more difficulties with joints and bones with less flexibility in muscles and joints. I am very pleased to say that for the first time in years, I can lift my leg and turn my foot up to work on it with the pumice stone in the shower! In general, I seem to be experiencing less pain. My nails are shinier and seem to be growing more rapidly. I am a therapeutic massage therapist and I am recommending this product to all my clients who are open and receptive to supplemental therapies. thanks!

No more Pain!

I have been taking DE for several weeks and really didn’t think I would have much to say this soon. I retired from an office job because I could no longer use my left hand to file papers two years ago. I have had constant pain from a lack of cartilage in the area at the base of my thumb making it very painful to use. Initially, not using my thumb would control the pain but during the past year nothing has been able to bring relief and I was told the the use of nSaids would only further deplete the cartilage and they didn’t help that much anyway. This left me with nowhere to turn. It was at this point I began taking a daily dose of DE with my morning OJ. I had some problems with the full tablespoon dose and had to drop back a bit for a week but am back up to the full amount with no complications and feeling fine. I am AMAZED and very pleased to report that I am nearly pain free………..I can bump the area and make it hurt for a bit; but it is soooooooooooooo much better and I expect it to continue to get ever better as I continue to take the DE. What is taking place is blowing my mind. I had x-rays taken over a year ago and it was obvious that we were looking at an area that was bone on bone. An orthopedic surgeon did injections to help, but that only lasted a few short weeks at best, only lessened the pain and was pretty pricey (it was supposed to take care of it for a year at a time). I do not understand what has happened here since I have been taking DE; but I certainly understand pain relief! I wore an elastic brace to just try and keep it from getting worse and I have not had to wear that in over two weeks at this point. From my experience, I would highly recommend this product for anyone. You might want to go a bit slow for a week and maybe only take a half dose if it bothers you at all. I am so glad I did not give up; it is utterly amazing how much better I am and I have done nothing different other than the DE! I am giving everyone samples and recommending that they continue use. God Bless you……………I love what this stuff has done for me!

Works on Me also!

I am so a believer now!! I am a breeder of Anatolian Shepherd Dogs and have been using Diatomaceous earth for at least 10 years to keep my home, my yard and my dogs free of insects and parasites. I have also been giving it to my dogs for internal parasites. I have a now 11 year old male who had been getting stiffer over the last few years and I was not looking forward to the time when I would have put him out of his pain. Right after I started giving him the DE for internal parasites, I noticed he was not having as much trouble getting up as he used to. Over time, he got better and better, and while he is not running around like a youngster, his quality of life has improved enormously. After running across your site and learning that humans can use DE also, I started using it for my arthritis … not really expecting any difference for a few months. After taking DE for less than 3 months, I can now walk up stairs easily without dragging myself up by the railings. I am losing weight gradually and didn’t even realize it until a friend asked me what kind of diet I was on because I was so much thinner than the last time she saw me. Since I had not been dieting, but had been eating the same as in the past, I was surprised when I got on the scales and saw I had lost 11 lbs in 3 months without changing my eating regimen in any way!! And, the one thing I really like is the texture of my skin has improved drastically … used to itch all the time … not anymore and it feels so much softer. I just cannot say enough about DE … I tell all my friends and, of course, I am a walking advertisement since I have changed so much and they can see the difference in me. All I can say is … thanks so much and God bless you for making something so good affordable for those like me (I just turned 65) who are on a fixed income and cannot afford expensive arthritis meds. I don’t know what I would do without you.

More Energy!

I was on the Internet searching for a de-worming medicine for our kitten when I stumbled across this site. I had never heard of Diatomaceous Earth before but once I started reading about it I couldn?t stop. I searched the Internet for a solid week finding all the information I could regarding DE. First thing I discovered was I think everyone should be taking this DE for the over-all health. The second thing I discovered was your site provides the best deal around to buy DE. I have been taking DE for 4 weeks now and I no longer need to take my anti-depressants that I was taking. I feel great when I wake up in the morning and seem to have more energy all day long. Thank you for offering DE at a great price. I will tell everyone I know about it.

Feel SO much better!

Hope you are fine. I started taking DE and I have been recommending it to all my friends, and some have already ordered it. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last July had two surgeries lumpectomy, gone thru the journey of chemo 6 rounds and 8 weeks of radiation every day, but now a 5 year pill, Aremidex started in June is killing me, so an angel knocked on my door and introduced me to your product, and I have been on it for about three weeks and I am feeling great, less joint pain, urinating better, skin looks better, moods are stable not irritable, more energy bowel movements are not so runny leg and ankle, wrist, and hip pain gone, and no more pains and tightness in chest. Thanks SO much!

Clean Colon

My husband went for a colonoscopy today. We had been doing ‘dirt’ (DE) for the past month. On his two prior colonoscopies dating back over the past six years, he has been suffering from ulcerative colitis. We are VERY HAPPY to report that the doctor said there is no indication of colitis!!! WE HAVE TO PICTURES TO PROVE IT!! We will keep doing ?dirt?. New York

No more pain!

Just wanted to say what a great product. I own a trucking business and had severe shoulder pain due to the nature of flat bed work that I do. Couldnt sleep at night and no mobility. DE gave me more energy, no pain, and finally restful nights. I have sent ziploc baggies to friends and family so they can experience my success ! Thanks Kathleen

Toenail fungus

I went to a nutritionist and he said I needed to give my 12 yr. old son diatomaceous earth for his toenail fungus and it would be gone in 60 days. I thought he was crazy, but I had trusted him on other things and so we tried it. His ugly black toenail was gone! It was truly beyond belief! I was so weary of the anti-fungal creams and oral medications, so this was an amazing alternative. I want to shout it from the roof top! – Diana

Amazing Earth

I just thought I would let you know how amazing your product is. I ordered this for one main reason and that was to kill bugs in the garden. I started taking two tablespoons once a day not thinking it would help a whole lot. You see I am a thirty year old male that works out and eats very healthy so I did not think it would do anything all that great for me. I was so wrong. After taking this for only three days I was shocked when I looked in the mirror and a small yellow bump that I have had in my left eye for over ten years was gone and the whites of my eyes were bright white no red at all. I showed my friends and family and they were just as shocked. They all thought I had it removed by a doctor. Not only that, I feel great as well. I will be telling everyone about this stuff. Thank you Larry

I Have Nails!

I go to a manicurist every two weeks to pamper my hands and since I’ve been taking DE, something interesting has happened. It used to be that every third visit (about six weeks), she would file my nails back because they would be too long. I spend a lot of time on a computer keyboard and need to feel the keys in order to type quickly. Since I’ve been religious about my DE (1 TB every morning in my morning smoothie), she has to file my nails EVERY VISIT!! She asked me what I was doing differently that made her have to work harder, lol. Not only that, but I decided to grow my hair out after having an extremely short style for about seven years, and it’s growing like a weed! AND! it’s rich and healthy! I am 57 years old, and far from slowing down, it’s like my system got a sudden boost of youth. Go figure. The only thing that has changed has been the addition of the DE. I love sushi, and with the horror stories about parasites, I know I don’t have anything to worry about. A heaping tablespoon in juice after a sushi frenzy puts my mind at ease. I’m giving a large container to a girlfriend who has RA (rheumatoid arthritis) to see if it helps her. Her current medication makes her so sick … the DE can’t hurt at all. I will write again when she reports back to me. I haven’t ordered the 50 pounds yet, but I know that’s coming up in the future. It’s perfect! Irene

How It Helped Me

HI, I JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR HAVING SOMETHING I NEVER WOULD HAVE BELIEVED WOULD HELP ME. I HAVE LUPUS AND HAVE HAD IT FOR 40 YEARS. I STARTED TAKING THE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH ABOUT 2 MONTHS AGO. I STILL HAVE A FEW FLARE UPS BUT THEY DON’T SEEM TO LAST AS LONG. THE SWELLING GOES DOWN SOONER AND THE PAIN IS A LOT LESS. THANK YOU SO MUCH. MY DAUGHTER IS THE ONE WHO TURNED ME ON TO THIS. IT ALSO HAS HELPED MY HOT FLASHES. I JUST GOT A 50 LB BAG. I WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT THIS WONDERFUL DIRT. NAN SO.DAKOTA

Lower Blood Pressure!

Hope you are well. As promised back on July 29, I wanted to provide some feedback on the product that you gave me. Of the approximately 40 days I could have taken it, I HAVE probably 36-37 of those days and must tell you I am very pleased with the results. I have been mixing it with Orange or Cranberry juice and there is absolutely no bad flavor which I have experienced with other products. My energy level is at an all time high, and although aches and pains, and the regular “creaks” you have in a 43 year old body have never been HUGE for me, but I can tell you that my joints have never felt better. The best part is how it affected my blood pressure. I have been battling some borderline high blood pressure for years, generally somewhere in the 135/145 over 90/95 range. Over the last week or two, it has been consistently around 132/83, which I am thrilled with. I have yet to take that physical to get some of the other numbers checked, but I am excited about that process and feel that I will see some overall improvement in things such as triglyceride and cholesterol levels. Thanks so much for the product?.You have a customer for life! Tom

Less Pain

This is a record or daily account, for what this Diatomaceous Earth has done for me. I am 71+ years old. I started taking it on Mon Jun 3-09, and on Jun 4 – 5 I noticed that my lower back on the right side the pain has stopped. On Jun 4 my nose is staying open!– this sinus trouble I’ve had since I worked in a meat packing plant back when I was 21– none of the nose, ear, and throat doctors, have been able to help me at all. Fri morning Jun 5 at 1:30 am, and I don’t seem to be having any heartburns. On July 3 I noticed my skin on my face and nose was clearing up. Aug 3-09 white and brown spots on my arms seems to be getting smaller. It looks like I’m finding that, I ‘m getting better each day as I go along, day by day. Its really wonderful the way this DE is working for me. Richard in Florida

Better Skin!

A co-worker told me about this as he was told by someone, so he ordered it and gave me some; it has been exactly 8 days today and I can tell you that it works! And it doesn?t take a long time to find out. Immediately, I noticed my energy level changed, I finally have some energy! But what caught my eye is my skin. I have had a little roughness since going through menopause and it left my face looking not so good, but one day this week I noticed how bright my face looked and the spots from the acne appeared to be fading. I thought, I?m going to keep my eyes on this and see if I?m imagining this or is it really happening; well it?s true, the dark spots on my face is beginning to fade. I can hardly wait to see what?s next. I started out with one rounded tablespoon, but I?m now taking it twice a day; in the morning after I brush my teeth, I have a rounded tablespoon; this is the first thing I put in my stomach; and around 3:00/p I have another. Oh, I forgot to mention that I had a small bald spot in my hair due to sickness last year, and guess what? It?s filling in! -no joke- Thanks Earthworks – Carolyn

No More Pain!

I myself take DE and have been amazed with the changes to my own body, no more knee pain I had an Achilles heel that had been swollen for more than two years and even the doctor could not get it to go away, but after my first two month of DE the achilles heel was completely normal with no more swelling. I also suffered from pain in the bottom of my feed, especially in the morning when I would get up they would hurt for a few minutes until I walked around for a bit. I noticed that within just a few weeks of taking DE I had no more pain in my feet. Like I said I have been on DE now for approx. one year and I have not had a single flare up of any kind. I have told everyone about this product and have made believers out of everyone that has tried it. My parents use the DE themselves and for all their animals too and they love it. I am so grateful that I was introduced to DE and I will continue to pass on my amazing results to others. I would never go without taking DE again. I will take this product for as long as I live it is just AMAZING. Alison from VA

Worked Wonders for Me

Im 68. Dealing with chronic fatigue and a mosaic of health problems stemming from birth defects caused me to seek alternative things to restore my health. From not feeling good enough to get out of bed, last winter Ive gotten to where can work all day. The chronic tiredness, cravings, worst of the asthma symptoms are gone. My hair shines, my eyes are bright, Im not having skin breakouts on my back, some of the swelling is going down, the chronic diarhea Ive dealt with for almost two years, is gone. That alone is worth it all. Its awesome to feel the best Ive felt in several years. I have an artificial heart valve artificial aorta plus other health issues Im so happy to find something that makes me actually feel good. I want everyone to know how good this stuff really is.

parasites

Diatomaceous Earth immediately started to change my life and after three weeks I was starting to be amazed. It has stopped my addictive eating habits and is making eating to be much more satisfying. My food bill immediately went down because I?m not constantly craving food. I actually came out of other addictions of self destructive difficulty and imprudence when I was in my 20?s and 30?s and by the grace of God I got through it without major illness. However, I?ve been plagued by chronic health problems for years which I?ve always connected to these past problems. A simple cold always lasting 3-4 months, vocal and lung problems and constant food cravings. I?ve felt for a long time that I?ve been dealing with parasites but no doctor would entertain this. Since starting DE, I saw three times clumps of what looked like worms which I couldn?t correlate to anything I had eaten that day so I may have visibly passed worms. But I didn?t have to see any worms to know that my digestive system and whole body is feeling so much better. I had felt I REALLY needed this stuff and ordered 50 lbs. on first order and started right off doing it 3 times, sometimes 2 times daily, between meals – not with meals. Shake with ice and a tiny bit of honey and it?s actually a nice drink, but now I skip the honey and just drink it down. I love this stuff. It?s so settling and soothing to my whole system, but yet it gives me energy. I?m at week 7 and I don?t think I?m finished with the initial healing and feeling better from it and am going to be very regular with a higher end dose for over three months. Very excited. Thank you James

Helps Aches and Pains

I have been using DE for 2 years now. I’d say about 8 years ago I noticed my left hip would ache while I slept. I would avoid laying on it to prevent that. My knees always creeked when I bent down for my entire life. I have neither of these things now after taking DE. I also started experienceing like all the blood was flowing to my head when I would bend down to work. A throbing feeling. That is completely gone also. Also used this on all my garden veggies—No Bugs–and I live in Missouri!! Trying it on our pets now—giving up Frontline. There are more stories from me and friends-will report later. Roxanna

Beyond Miraculous

I recently found out about diatomaceous earth after a health-conscious friend gave me some to try. I am a 52 year old male with a history of severe allergies, sinus infections, tinnitus and ear fluid, digestive problems and low thyroid function. Once a strapping football player, wrestler and all-around athlete with no health problems, I was transformed into a sickly person after undergoing an extended course of antibiotics for what turned out to be an improperly completed root canal. From the age of 27 on I was plagued by frequent infections, colds, sore throats, “foggy” thinking and maldigestion of food. I had constant diarrhea and bowel problems lasting until very recently. Because of my sports training, I was taught at an early age to never give up, so over the years I have investigated EVERY alternative health solution to these problems – Lugol’s Iodine, probiotics, colloidal silver, olive leaf, oxygen therapies, enzymes, oregano, Pau d’Arco, black walnut, cloves, wormwood. The list goes on and on. I have spent thousands of dollars, literally, in searching for a solution. Two weeks ago I began using Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth and was flabbergasted when I noticed my sinuses clearing within three days. This has never happend before! There has been a noticeable reduction in my tinnitus, my ears have less fluid constantly trickling in them and the chronic bowel problems I was dealing with are actually disappearing. I have also noticed I feel relaxed and much calmer. There are no words to describe what DE is doing for me. It is beyond miraculous. Twenty-five years of nagging health problems that were annoying, psychologically challenging and causing me to lose hope for the future are all falling by the wayside. If this type of resolution to so many issues were to happen to you, how would you explain the liberating feeling of it all? I don’t know how to articulate it. I mix DE in iced tea with stevia, it is delicious. I also add it to yogurt and oatmeal. It actually tastes very good! It adds a nice texture to anything to which I add it. Needless to say, I have ordered a supply of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth from you. Bill

Amazing!!

Holy Cow, this stuff is amazing!!! We have been using this product for about two weeks, and today my husband, who’s bald on the top, came to me and asked if it was his imagination but he thought his hair was growing back. LO and BEHOLD it was, not like all over , but in noticeable patches, talk about a happy man! That alone prompted me to write this letter. As for me, I have noticed a decrease in floaters, my Fibromyalgia pain has “dulled” in it’s intensity, and the skin on my arms, which had red itchy bumps, from my sun allergy, have almost disappeared. I also use DE to keep the “ever so annoying” soap bugs off the walls and out of my patio by making a perimeter around the fence and across the sidewalk. My Chihuahua also takes it everyday in some wet dog food. It got rid of those disgusting roundworms she picked at the dog park, and I’m confident it killed other parasites that I didn’t see too..YUCK! I read that Diatomaceous Earth (a silica/shell fossil) is as important to normal body function as oxygen is, and since this type of silica is lacking in most foods, taking this product as a supplement is the best thing one can do for their family’s health. This is an excellent natural product with outstanding health benefits, and a great price to boot! LOVE IT! Sincerely, Ellen and family

Lyme Disease

I have had Lyme Disease for many years, plus Rocky Mtn. Spotted fever and Erlichia….I have spent YEARS in unbearable pain….I started taking DE last week, and for the first time in almost 2 years I could kneel down and get back up without help….it seems too good to be true, but the Lord works in mysterious ways! I have been sleeping better and seem to have more energy during the day. Thanks!! Cathi

Constipation

Hi there–I am so excited to tell you that DE has helped me tremendously with my chronic constipation and my pain from scoliosis—Thank you. Elaine from TX

Cholesterol Down

I started using DE at the end of Sept of this year. I had been having some sort of problem with my neck. For about 3 weeks I had a lot of pain in my neck and shoulder–I couldn’t turn my neck very far at all. I couldn’t even look over my shoulder. I don’t know if it was arthritis or what. I found your website and knew that there were several areas that I thought DE might improve in my health, so i ordered some. At first I took 2 to 3 tbsp per day and in 6 days I had full range of motion back in my neck. There was still a little twinge of pain now and then but that has since all disappeared. I give blood on a regular basis. The blood bank where I donate keeps all of your records on file where you can check your records of blood pressure and cholesterol. I had been watching my cholesterol steadily creeping up. In September it was at it’s highest point 251. It was right after that that I started taking DE. Then I donated again in November. In just two months time my cholesterol went down to 235! I’m a walking salesman. I’ve told so many people about the wonders of DE! Thanks for being there for us! Debbie Ft Worth, TX

Helping all the Family!

Hello, just wanted to let you know I referred my cousin in Washington & Daughterin Texas to you about a month ago and both told me about the great results they are getting from this product. They are feeling so much better & giving it to their dogs as well. My daughter was having major hair fallout and took it for that and discovered she passed an unbelievably huge parasite and some smaller ones as well. I’m buying my second order from you and will keep telling everyone about it. I gave 1 lb to my boyfriend last night and my daughter has her inlaws & their dogs taking it now too! Thank-you so much for shipping to my Cousin Ron’s P.O. Box, he has lost most of his large belly & is looking so much better in just a months time and has so much more energy!!! (he is 63) Annette (Please don’t stop selling this wonderful “dirt’)

Love the Benefits

I am loving the benefits of Diatomaceous Earth. I am now in my third week. My neck had been very tight and “creaky” on the left side and chiropractic and massage therapy hasn’t really taken care of it. After 2 weeks on the D.E. it has improved considerably and there is only a little tightness left. I am confident that it is going to be 100% very soon based on what I am feeling so far. I also have seen an improvement in my hips which are also extremely tight. I know that one day in the near future, I am going to be able to cross my legs like a lady which I haven’t been able to do for about a year. Thanks so much for a fabulous product!!

Bleeding Gums

Want to tell you another DE success story. I haven’t gone to the dentist in 10 years. I hate my dentist for changing from one insurance carrier to another. So I pay for dental insurance and haven’t ever gone. But that’s another story. Anyway, I have had plaque problems and bleeding gums for year because I seldom flossed and I of course never had any cleaning done in that 10 years. So I started putting a little DE on my toothbrush before brushing. Well, after about three weeks, I don’t have bleeding gums anymore. My gums are pink instead of red. My plaque is almost gone. I sometimes put some DE on my teeth, then floss (what a change!). And now there’s very little plaque on my teeth. You could put dentists out of the maintenance business if everyone found out about this. Kelvin

Depression

It’s past midnight, and I’m an old lady, much too old to be rejoicing in the wee hours of morning about a product that I would normally have dismissed with a shrug. I’m happy to share my experience with “Earth.” I’m not even sure this is the official name for this powder. My friend told me a little bit about what a week of taking it daily did for her. I was reluctant, to say the least. Then she said that it gave her energy. That got my attention. I am a retired teacher, and I spend too much time on the computer because I don’t feel like doing strenuous work.:) Now, post this powder taking, I’m cleaning house again! Anyway, I don’t remember a time when I haven’t awakened feeling virtually “doomed.” I have depression, especially in the morning. Some days I’m really depressed. When my friend told me the multiple ways this “stuff” had helped her, I finally tried it. And, I submit to you that I have not had a single day awakening with depressed–since my very first dose. Where do I buy it, as my friend gave me enough to last a month? And to her I will be eternally grateful. Kay Smith

Cholesterol Down 100 Points!

I bought a 50 lb bag this summer and I’m really glad that I did–I used it in my garden to keep the “bugs” off my plants, I’ve given it to my chickens, calves and dog to keep them healthy but the most important reason that I love it is that I’ve got high cholesterol and I’ve been on 3 different drugs trying to get it lower–well, they did get it down but my liver enzines went way high so the drugs weren’t an option for me, as which is the lesser of 2 evils–high cholesterol or damaged liver?? I started taking the diatomaceous earth every morning in my juice and when I went back to the dr she came in asking what I’d been doing the results were amazing–finally she told me that it was down over 100 points. I told her about it and she wanted the website as she also needs to lower her cholesterol. All I know is that it is a wonderful option for me and the “side effects”–longer stronger nails, thicker hair and softer skin–those I CAN LIVE WITH. I’ve told several others about it! Thanks Carla

Arthritis Pain Gone!

I started taking shell flour 3 years ago for arthritis. My hands were so bad that I couldn’t hold on to a coffee cup and could not sleep because my hips would hurt so bad and my friend told me about an article she read telling about diatomaceous earth. Within 2 weeks of taking it 2 times a day my pain was gone. I also gave some to my sister for her 16yr. old dog that could hardly walk and 2 weeks later she called and said that he was almost like a puppy again.I am sold on it .

Blood Pressure

This is another testimonial you can use in more recent feed-back. I started my elderly father, age 85, on your product over a month ago. He had a check-up today at his doctor’s office, and his blood pressure is now excellent! Much better than it was for years. His doctor reviewed the information I was given about your product (DE) and gave it full approval. My dad’s bowel movements are also more regulated. Thank you for your great product!

Psorisis

Last month I ordered some Diatomaceous Earth because a friend had recommended it for my wife. She had a severe case of psorisis on her elbow. After a few weeks of putting a paste made of the stuff and taking a tablespoon a day as you recommend, it has almost cleared up. Nothing else has worked. Thank You!!

Works Fast

My husband has a whole list of health problems, the most major ones are:Congestive Heart Failure, Diabetes, neuropathy, and arthritis. He said he could feel a difference within a few hours of taking his first dose. I thought, “yeah, right, this soon after taking something. Not even medicine works this fast.” Three days after taking one tablespoon each morning, he showed me he could move his fingers on his left side as well as he could on his right side. He said he has less pain in his stomach area where we feel he may have been blocked up. We do know the DE is pushing things through his system very well each day! Something he has not experienced regularly for a good many years. I noticed last night, our third day, my eyes are more sharp while driving, especially night driving. I had been banned from driving in Oregon at night, due to night blindness. Signs that may be half a block away from each other looked like they were all on top of each other. Distance meant nothing to me at all. Over time the condition improved some, but never enough to make a true difference. Last night, I was amazed at the clear distance between signs! It is absolutely amazing! My daughter and I both have had sports injuries to our knees, creating sometimes excruciating pain when weather changes are nearing. The pain has reduced a lot. The stiffness that accompanied the pain has also diminished quite a bit. You guys have made believers out of us!!! Thank you for having this product to sell to others so we can all share the great benefits of Diatomaceous Earth! Vicki and John

Worked So Fast!

My cats have been having problems with diarrhea for so long. We used worm medicine from the vet several times. Their diarrhea would clear up, only to return again. I was searching the internet looking for an alternative to what my vet was prescribing and came upon your web site. I am a medical transcriptionist and have suffered for the last several years with severe back pain, from sitting at my computer all day. I also have hand and knee pain and low energy levels. Most of the time, I just want to sleep and after sleeping, I wake up feeling worse—more pain and no energy. I am only 52 and this just doesn’t seem normal to feel so tired all the time. I decided to try your DE. My order arrived early Monday morning—today is Friday. I opened it right up, put a tablespoon in my OJ and drank it down. I also mixed it into my cats food and fed them immediately. I am giving it to them once a day. My mom and myself are taking 2 tablespoons a day, morning and evening. It has been 4 days since I started DE and I CANNOT believe the change in my mom, myself and my cats. Their diarrhea has stopped completely. Even though some of them are getting up there in years, they are all playing like kittens. I mix the DE in their canned food and they inhale it–almost as if they are craving this stuff. But for me, the most remarkable effect is that I have no pain. I just can’t believe anything can work this fast and this well. I just cannot believe it. My mom also suffers from chronic diarrhea, which her physician can find no cause for, or effective treatment for. She has just accepted that she will have to live with it the rest of her life. She also suffers from arthritis. She also started on DE last Monday and cannot believe the changes taking place in her body. She has had no diarrhea in the past week and she says her joint pain is gone. Neither of us has had any ill-effects from taking the DE, only positive results. i can’t help wondering if both of us feel this good after only a week, what will a month on DE bring? And, my skin, it is getting so soft and shiny! I know I’ve said too much, but I’ve been mislead on so many other products that promise so much and do nothing, and this one is so AMAZING! I’m telling everyone that I know about DE—I think it is a miracle from GOD! Carol from IN

More Energy

I recieved my order at my job, and was very happy to get it. I’ve been taking it once a day in my oatmeal or yogurt and began to wonder why I did not feel tired enough for that afternoon coffee! Also, my feet do not hurt first thing each morning and I feel less heavy. I find it hard to stop talking about it! Veronica in MA

Ear infection

I had a painful ear infection and I suffered for a whole month. Took antibiotics, anti inflammatory meds and I was still deaf in my left ear. I thought mine was from a virus but nothing helped. Then, after just two days of taking DE, I can hear again. It is amazing. Kelvin

Triglycerides Down!

I have been on DE for 6 months now and I just had my lab work done. My triglycerides have been reduced from 495 down to 203. I have so much more energy and my hair and nails are growing so much better. My husband has had HBP and since being on the dirt, his BP is now in the normal range. It has also helped with my varicose veins and I no longer have any pain from them.. Rhonda from Louisiana

Blood Sugar Down

I am a diabetic, whose diabetes has been out of control. I am on two different pills twice a day and 1 shot of Byetta twice a day, event though I am on all of this medicine my blood sugar has been running between 206 and 400–not good. I decided to try Diatomaceous Earth, I take 1 tablespoon per day and I can not believe how great I feel, my blood sugar is down to 164 (still high but much better) I have only been on Diatomaceous Earth for one week, I can not wait to see how much better I am doing after two weeks. I also have a lot more energy and with my blood sugar down I am not hot all of the time, living in Texas this is a good thing. I just want to thank you so much for your wonderful product and I hope there are more people out there ready to get started on feeling better. A. La Lone from Texas.

Less Hungry

I’ve purchased your product and have been taking it for about a week. I noticed a difference in how I felt almost immediately, around the third day. I just feel better, I definitely have more energy, maybe due to the minerals it provides that were lacking from my diet. I have not had any cravings and I am feeling less hungry all day. My skin is already visibly better, smoother–there’s a glow to it I had not seen in a long time and the fine wrinkles I had are virtually smoothing out–disappearing.

Works on People and Pets!

Works on People and Pets! I first ordered the DE with regard to controlling insect and flea activity in my yard and not having to pay Tru-Green Chem Lawn it’s outrageous yearly fee that is now up to $900.00 dollars. After reading all in information on DE I decided to take it myself, and also to give it to our 2 German Shepperds and our cats. I also talked my wife, daughter and son into using it and it has been great. I no longer have stomach or digestive problems. My blood pressure is now normal without medication. I haven’t had a headache since using the DE and I use to have them on a regular basis. My daughter, age 35, no longer has IBS or migraine headaches. We all feel better and have more energy. The dogs no longer have any body odor and have very healthy stools, and they also seem more active. The cats fur looks sleeker and more healthy even though both cats are getting on in years. They also seem happier and very healthy. I have also told several friends about DE and have given them quart size ziplock bags of DE to try. Thanks very much,

What DE has done for me

My daughter-in-law received DE for Christmas. She passed some on to me at my request as I suffer from joint and muscle pain from rheumatoid arthritis and I am beginning menopause. I started taking 1 heaping tablespoon every morning with my orange juice. I cannot believe that in a week I have actually experienced a difference in my pain reduction. I also am not experiencing hot flashes once every hour since I began DE. What a wonderful feeling and a wonderful product. I have sent your website to friends and relatives telling them what a great product this is. Thank you, have a great day!!

Menstrual Cramps

The only word I could describe for DE is Fabulous! It has passed about 2 months since my first order, and I just did my second one yesterday. I have done my own diary from the first day my daughter and I began to take the tablespoon of DE each day. I’m not going to write everyting I wrote in my diary here, but I MUST tell one very important thing that happend to me and my 14 year old daughter. Since ever, we both suffer from really bad monthly M cramps. I’m not talking about the little pain, I’m talking about the pain that makes you faint and when you don’t faint, you puke. My daughter has school absences one day of each month since 6th grade. Our doctor has tried everythng with medication, and nothing works. Now comes the magic…taking one tablespoon of DE during our bad time, we don’t need to take ANY pain medication—but I mean, nothing at all, even the sensation of discomfort during those days is completely GONE. Do I say tat all symptoms are gone? Well-they are, and we are not afraid of that time of the month anymore. I have noticed so many great changes on myself by taking DE, but I think it is very important that every girl should know about this benefit too, because I wish I would of known about this 30 years ago! God bless you all–Miriam in TX

Pets and Animals Testimonials

These are not exaggerated or made up! — they have all been given to us 1st hand:

Sleeping better after DE

I was awaken during the night to my little dog (who sleeps in the bed with me) being agitated and not sleeping as normal. I turned the light on to inspect him to see if he may

have a tick or flea. To my amazement I saw which appeared to be fettuccine noodles wiggling from his back side. I almost cried. I had never seen this before. I immediately got

on the internet to find out what these were and how to eliminate them! I ordered D.E. and kept him (AND ME) on it for 30 days. His coat is shiny, his eyes gleam, he has so much

more energy. I feel and sleep better and my lower back pain has disappeared. I will never stop telling people about D.E. or stop giving this to my pets! You can spend

$thousands on conventional wormers and drugs and this natural product not only helps everyone – It does not hurt or have side effect of ill nature! Thank you!!

Works great on German Shepherds

We got our 9 week old puppy in May, 07. For the next 9 months we fought a constant battle with intestinal roundworms. Over-the-counter & veterinary treatments helped for a

couple of weeks, then she would be infested again. I searched the web for worm treatments when I found your website in February, 08.

I put 1.5 level tablespoons in her food twice daily. The next day after the first treatment she passed a huge number of worms. She passed worms for the next 3 days. After the

fourth day there were no more worms in her stool. Her stool was no longer wet & soupy but solid & firm.

8 months later she is still worm free. I put DE in her food & water occasionally now, not every day. Your product has eliminated intestinal parasites from her life. Every vet

should know about your product.

Thanks from Mike Love, Joe & Belle.

I love your product

Hello, I love your product. I have been giving your DE to my horses, dogs, cats and myself. I have replaced my horses chemical dewormers. Giving DE to my horses for a few weeks

now. I needed proof it was working so I had my veterinarian spin test the manure for worms and worm eggs. Not one egg or worm . Chemical dewormers are hard on a horses gut but

I must keep them worm free to avoid colic . Thanks for a wonderful web page . All the information is very helpful.

A very happy dog

I adopted a dog from a shelter that had heartworms.The meds they were giving was not helping her–she had severe coughing with blood present as well. As soon as I got her home

I threw the meds in the garbage and started her on DE daily. After 1 month she was free of heartworms, no more coughing, and lots of energy, a very happy dog. I have 5 dogs and

they all get the DE, and they are very healthy. Peggy from Florida. Note added by Earthworkshealth: DE works wonders in the digestive system, but we are not sure if it works or

not on all heartworm infestations. To be 100% safe, it would still be good to use your current heartworm control program.

No More Eating Poop!

that problem has been taken care of. No more eating Poop. Thanks!! South Carolina

No More Fleas!

summer I tried everything and nothing worked! Diatomaceous is the only product that has worked 100%! Georgia

Happy Rott again!

My name is Leo. I live in South Texas and I have a 7 year-old Rottweiller that was diagnosed with intestinal and heart worms in August 2009 during his check-up that year. The

vet gave me and my wife a poor prognosis for our dog and that he would probably only live a couple more months. We took our dog home and began researching treatment options. A

very dear friend of mine who was a farmer, sadly died in a car accident shortly after telling me about DE. He told me that I should sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of DE in my dog’s

food at least once a day and that the DE would take care of the worm problems. I fed DE to my Rott religiously. Well, my wife and I took our dog to the vet just last week for

his yearly check-up and the vet was astonished to find that, not only was our Rott alive, but also found that the intestinal and heart worm tests came back completely negative.

He asked what we had done to treat our dog and we related that we had been feeding DE to our Rott. The only explanation he had was that the DE had cured our dog. I swear by

this stuff!

Joint Pain in Dogs

I feel great and so does my husband. But the story does not end there. I have tried it on my Boxer dog and on my cats. Boxers are known for joint pains and hip issues, needless

to say our boy is running like a champ and looking awesome. I also apply it to his coat and he no longer itches and scratches. Thank you! I have recommended your product to

many.

Many Pet Benefits!

I am a customer of yours and am very happy with your product. We have 8 dogs and 2 cats. All of us have benefited from DE in various ways. Less flies (way less), poop scooping

is a less stinky job, dogs and cats all have shinier coats, cat has not had allergic reaction which produces bare spots in fur, dogs seem happier and more lively. These are all

wonderful things.

10 Year believer!

I am so a believer now!! I am a breeder of Anatolian Shepherd Dogs and have been using Diatomaceous earth for at least 10 years to keep my home, my yard and my dogs free of

insects and parasites. I have also been giving it to my dogs for internal parasites. I have a now 11 year old male who had been getting stiffer over the last few years and I

was not looking forward to the time when I would have put him out of his pain. Right after I started giving him the DE for internal parasites, I noticed he was not having as

much trouble getting up as he used to. Over time, he got better and better, and while he is not running around like a youngster, his quality of life has improved enormously.

After running across your site and learning that humans can use DE also, I started using it for my arthritis … not really expecting any difference for a few months. After

taking DE for less than 3 months, I can now walk up stairs easily without dragging myself up by the railings. I am losing weight gradually and didn’t even realize it until a

friend asked me what kind of diet I was on because I was so much thinner than the last time she saw me. Since I had not been dieting, but had been eating the same as in the

past, I was surprised when I got on the scales and saw I had lost 11 lbs in 3 months without changing my eating regimen in any way!! And, the one thing I really like is the

texture of my skin has improved drastically … used to itch all the time … not anymore and it feels so much softer. I just cannot say enough about DE … I tell all my

friends and, of course, I am a walking advertisement since I have changed so much and they can see the difference in me. All I can say is … thanks so much and God bless you

for making something so good affordable for those like me (I just turned 65) who are on a fixed income and cannot afford expensive arthritis meds. I don’t know what I would do

without you.

Acts Like a Puppy Again!!

I heard about DE from good friends of mine. They give it to their dogs and horses. So I finally broke down and ordered some. I have been giving it to my 4 dogs for the past few

months. They are 21 months, 10 yrs, 11 yrs, and 12 yrs old respectively. My senior dane had slowed down a bit due to arthritis. But with the DE, she has the energy of a puppy!

She and my dane pup play rodeo and nascar in the living room every evening after dinner. My old coon hound is wide open, just like when I brought him home from the shelter. All

of their fur is super soft and velvety, like rabbit fur. It’s amazing. I am going to start taking it myself, too. Can’t wait to see the results ! Thanks for offering such a

great product ! Jill

No More Fleas!

I rescued 2 dogs that were abandoned and left to starve. They had flea’s and worms, and no appetite. My sister has 12 dogs and she orders the DE for her dogs from your company.

She gave me some to start the dogs on right away. I dust the dogs daily with the DE, and put it in wet food that I was having to force feed to them. Wow….what a difference

this has made the flea’s are gone, and I don’t see any more worms. I am so amazed that this product is so effective and good for the dogs, I will never be with out it. Wanted

to let you know so this can be passed along to help others. Thanks!! David From Tallahassee, Fl

Helped our cat!

Hello, Love your DE! I bought it for our cat who was a rescued cat at a shelter. The whole litter was found in the dumpster at 4 weeks old. On antibiotics from the start. Then

when he was 3 he fell out of a third story window and had surgery to put him back together again. And another surgery. Lots of digestive difficulites and on special foods,

sneezing and throwing up. And he had a mean streak to him. Now on DE no more digestive difficulties at all and he does not seem to have the mean streak at all any more. Used to

hiss around other animals and sometimes people. No more. It seems to be very calming. Also he would get these raw sores by his ears. The vet would put him on antibiotics and a

steroid cream. They would always come back. I put some DE in a healthy skin cream and put it on the sores and in 3 applications the sores were gone! He usually hates me to put

stuff on him and hides and will hardly come around to eat. Would eat in the middle of the night to avoid me treating him. But with the DE he seemed to know immediately that it

felt good and let me do it. Amazing. I give him about 1/2 tsp in his dry food and another 1/2 tsp in his canned food every day.

Works Great on Horses!

I have horses of my own that I have been giving DE to for approx. a year now and the transformation is amazing, I have not had to worm them withconventional wormer since giving

DE and they have had no worms. Their coat and hoofs are in super shape. I have two horses that are older-one is in its 20s and he shows no body ache even after we ride for 7 to

8 hours. We also use it on our chickens for mites and it works great. Alison from VA

Less Odor

I have new young chickens that I’ve raised from baby chicks. While they were in the house in a cage in my office, I used DE on the shavings daily and it totally eliminated the

odor, which was wonderful. Before I purchased DE, I had to totally clean out the cage every day or the odor would drive me out of my office! Since using DE, I only had to

change the litter every four or five days. Now the chicks have moved to their new “home” in the backyard, and I use a sifter and ?sift? DE all over their coop and run, and I

haven’t yet smelled any odor. I also use it for my dogs and I take a tablespoon of it myself every day. I’m planning to discontinue my dog’s heartworm medicine and go strictly

with DE. Kathleen

Great for Horses

I stumbled across your website over a year ago while looking for horse wormers. I called every farm supply store around and no one had even heard of it. After reading about it

I decided to give it a try and the results were very good. I noticed the horses hardly had any flies around them and when we would ride trails with others I noticed their poop

was not smelly or runny like the other horses, plus they just look good. Also I know it really works on ant beds, it takes just some sprinkles on the top and they are gone

within days. I also use it around the perimiter of my house and I have not seen any bugs. I will continue to use this stuff as well as keep telling others .

16 Year Old Dog

I started taking diatomaceous earth 3 years ago for arthritis.My hands were so bad that I couldn’t hold on to a coffee cup and could not sleep because my hips would hurt so bad

and my friend told me about an article she read telling about DE. Within 2 weeks of taking it 2 times a day my pain was gone.I also gave some to my sister for her 16yr. old dog

that could hardly walk and 2 weeks later she called and said that he was almost like a puppy again.I am sold on it .

Dog more energetic

My mom is disabled and no longer able to care for her aging Min Pin. I started him on 1 tsp. of DE per morning in his food. It has only been a week and he has switched from

“hard to get off the porch for his walk” to yesterday HE WALKED ME!! to the neighbor’s property 1/2 mile away!! He even ran part way across the neighbor’s field. I don’t do

testimonials, but THIS IS CRAZY! I had to tell you. Mom is so happy the his health is no longer in decline. “Zeus” is very visibly happier and so much more energetic. I know he

thanks you too. Paul in NV

Diarrhea in Cats

My cats have been having problems with diarrhea for so long. We used worm medicine from the vet several times. Their diarrhea would clear up, only to return again. I was

searching the internet looking for an alternative to what my vet was prescribing and came upon your web site. I am a medical transcriptionist and have suffered for the last

several years with severe back pain, from sitting at my computer all day. I also have hand and knee pain and low energy levels. Most of the time, I just want to sleep and after

sleeping, I wake up feeling worse—more pain and no energy. I am only 52 and this just doesn’t seem normal to feel so tired all the time. I decided to try your DE. My order

arrived early Monday morning—today is Friday. I opened it right up, put a tablespoon in my OJ and drank it down. I also mixed it into my cats food and fed them immediately. I

am giving it to them once a day. My mom and myself are taking 2 tablespoons a day, morning and evening. It has been 4 days since I started DE and I CANNOT believe the change in

my mom, myself and my cats. Their diarrhea has stopped completely. Even though some of them are getting up there in years, they are all playing like kittens. I mix the DE in

their canned food and they inhale it–almost as if they are craving this stuff. But for me, the most remarkable effect is that I have no pain. I just can’t believe anything can

work this fast and this well. I just cannot believe it. My mom also suffers from chronic diarrhea, which her physician can find no cause for, or effective treatment for. She

has just accepted that she will have to live with it the rest of her life. She also suffers from arthritis. She also started on DE last Monday and cannot believe the changes

taking place in her body. She has had no diarrhea in the past week and she says her joint pain is gone. Neither of us has had any ill-effects from taking the DE, only positive

results. i can’t help wondering if both of us feel this good after only a week, what will a month on DE bring? And, my skin, it is getting so soft and shiny! I know I’ve said

too much, but I’ve been mislead on so many other products that promise so much and do nothing, and this one is so AMAZING! I’m telling everyone that I know about DE—I think

it is a miracle from GOD! Carol from IN

Horses Look Great

I have been using diatomaceous earth for the last 8 months as a natural wormer for my horses and dairy goats. As we go into spring, my horses look amazing! They are shedding

out quicker then usual and look as if they have been worked to show shape—even though they had the whole winter off! In the summer, because I have pasture, they normally get

grain just in the morning—just enough to give them their vitamins. When the grass is depleted, I up it to 1/2 can in the AM. Once it goes over 1/2 can, I split it into AM and

PM feedings. I realized that this winter, I never upped their grain past the 1/2 can point. This is the 1st time in 30 years of horse ownership that my horses didn’t get grain

with their morning hat in the winter!—But they look better then ever! Also, I have a Mare who is a horrible cribber and she is hardly cribbing at all now! Thank you so much

for making this wonderful natural product available! Sherie in WA

Kills even Tiny Mites

About a year and a half ago, I picked up some kind of mite from my little poodle, who slept on my bed at night. I was so miserable I thought I would die! They were in my hair,

in my skin, in my eyes, etc. I was covered and ended up getting prescriptions of permethrin to treat it. The permethrin worked for a short period of time, but they came right

back. Then I started dusting myself and my bed nightly with DE. I did that for around 5 months, and the DE has rid me of this horrible parasite. My poodle also has stopped

chewing his paws and scratching—no more swollen, red , scabby paws. I couldn’t believe that it worked after all else failed. I will never be withour DE again, whether I am

eating it in my banana pudding, or dusting myself, my dog, or my henhouse with it. Thank God for DE–a natural, miracle product. Thank you also, for letting me know that it

kills something as small as a microscopic mite. Carolyn from LA

No More Chemicals!

Hi, I just ordered another 50 Pound bag and I have to tell you, Diatomaceous Earth is fantastic!! We use it for our dogs, horses and ourselves. We raise german shepherds and

have puppies on it as well. We shipped a puppy to California that was on DE from 3 days old until they left at 8 weeks old. The new owners vet frowned when he found out the

puppy never had a chemical wormer—the vet said he was sure he would find something. The puppy was totally clear of any parasites. The new puppy owners also bought the

Diatomaceous Earth to keep the puppy on the natural wormer. Thank you—it has been a huge, huge, blessing to us. Jane in MO

No More Worms!

Our chihuahua was exhibiting black tar light stools and I had read that that was a sign of worm infestation. In addition, she had started dragging her behind. We started her on

2 tsp. of DE per day mixed in with cottage cheese and fresh strawberries and within the 2nd week she passed two (approx 6 in. long–what looked like tape worms). now at the end

of three weeks, her stools look normal light brown color, she’s no longer dragging her behind and she even seems more playful and energetic. We’ll keep giving her 1 tsp. daily

to keep these worms at bay. Renee, Arizona

Works on People and Pets!

I first ordered the DE with regard to controlling insect and flea activity in my yard and not having to pay Tru-Green Chem Lawn it’s outrageous yearly fee that is now up to

$900.00 dollars. After reading all in information on DE I decided to take it myself, and also to give it to our 2 German Shepperds and our cats. I also talked my wife, daughter

and son into using it and it has been great. I no longer have stomach or digestive problems. My blood pressure is now normal without medication. I haven’t had a headache since

using the DE and I use to have them on a regular basis. My daughter, age 35, no longer has IBS or migraine headaches. We all feel better and have more energy. The dogs no

longer have any body odor and have very healthy stools, and they also seem more active. The cats fur looks sleeker and more healthy even though both cats are getting on in

years. They also seem happier and very healthy. I have also told several friends about DE and have given them quart size ziplock bags of DE to try. Thanks very much,

Organic Pest Control Testimonials

These are not exaggerated or made up! — they have all been given to us 1st hand:

Sieglinde from Gulfport

I have used Diatomaceous Earth from this company in the past, and just reordered some today. My testimony is for the control of fleas and other insects in the yard, house (carpets) and porches. While this seems to be the main reason people use it overall, I can’t say enough about it, as I have tried soaps, hydrogen peroxide, essential oils, vegetable based garden oils, diluted bug spray, you name it, and nothing takes away the flea problem like Diatomaceous earth. I have 16 cats, and a big yard with grass and trees and DE has kept them bug free. As I live in Florida, aka “bug country” this is no small challenge. My cats are relaxed, never scratching and I tell everyone I know. I have also shopped for price, and this company seems to be the most reasonable.

Roaches Gone!

I use it to get rid of roaches. I spent $500 on pest management, but it didn’t work. I put some of this down and roach problem was gone in a week. This stuff is so great it should be in everyone’s home!!
¬
¬
No more ticks and fleas!

I am giving it to the cats and my dog and sprinkling it on their fur to keep the ticks and fleas off. It has helped tremendously. Living in Oregon we have lots of ticks and the cats always seem to bring one or two in on them and then they crawl onto me and then I get bit and swell up from the bite. Since powdering them down, no more ticks on me or the cats. This is great stuff!!

Bugs are Gone!

I am a new customer to this product and I give D.E. 5 Stars for effectiveness. The company was very helpful and now we are all on D.E. and the pets, and the garden, and it got rid of the ants under the patio and I sprinkled it around the cracks around the house. The bugs went away. My chihuahuas hair has started to grow back, the fleas have all left the outside pets. This is Fantastic.

Japanese Ladybeetles Dead

And that’s only part of the good news I’d like to share with you. The second part comes as no surprise to me… as a gardener, I’ve heard of and run into diatomaceous earth before, used as an organic pest control product. But I wasn’t sure the food grade would work as it’s a very fine substance. We live in an older home, and have an infestation of the Japanese Ladybeetles that have been sweeping the nation. They somehow squeeze in through the window frames and other cracks in the house, and they congregate around the window areas… by the hundreds! They bite, and are very annoying. Anyway, I spread a little of the powder on the windowsill, and lo and behold, it does work! All I have to do now is vacuum up the dead bugs! It’s working very effectively as an organic pest control! May your God continue to Bless you all.

Controls Harmful Insects

When I lived in Phoenix, AZ, as a breeder of Champion Dogs, it was very important for me to be able to keep my pets safe from any harmful pest that crawl around on the ground and onto my pets, or into their food and water bowls. Our most common problems were, ticks, fleas, scorpions, ants, and roaches. Within 1 wk of applying DE to my kennel area, front and back yard, I was so amazed at the quick end results! I never had to worry about another bug crawling on my dogs again, or getting into their food or water. The added bonus to using this is that once applied to the area it seemed to have an ever lasting affect, we had hard rains that year, gusty winds, not to mention the daily rinsing of the kennels and daily watered grass area where they lay and play. I didn’t see another ant, roach, scorpion or tick again! Plus to my surprise, flies, which I thought were a given, were rarely ever seen! Tucson, AZ

Fire Ants!

Let me tell you, DE is absolutely WONDERFUL!!! Not only is it getting the ants under control in our yard, we are taking it and giving it to the pets as well. Those darned fire ants are a bit stubborn and we do have to keep adding to some of the hills, but each day they are less and less. In a yard 1/2 acre big, we only had 6 hills that had some very resistant ants in it, and our guess is that those are the ones that came from way deep inside a hill, or traveled from the neighbors yard over.

It Works!

We recently bought DE and an atomizer from your company. We have a 1-year old peach tree that shows signs of peach leaf curl, and info I read said it cannot be managed once started – just spray earlier next spring. I misted DE on the leaves, and all new leaves are completely normal with no more signs of curling/browning. Hmmm.

From Martha Stewart Magazine

In the “Good Things” section: SHAKE AWAY PESTS! Put a kitchen shaker to work in your garden; it’s a great way for dispensing food grade diatomaceous earth. This is a nontoxic pesticide which has sharp edges that kill slugs and bugs without chemicals. Use the shaker to dust an even ring on soil around plants.
