Diatomaceous Earth for Human Parasites:

DE is commonly fed to pets as a de-wormer and parasite cleans. But YES, it works great to get rid of parasites in humans. Diatomaceous earth cuts up human intestinal parasites – literally.

The DE can be compared to tiny shards of glass. It is perfectly safe for our human intestines, but when parasites crawl through it, the DE dehydrates them. If the parasites ingest the DE it cuts them up from the inside.


Diatomaceous Earth as a Parasite Cleanse:

  • 1 to 2  tablespoon of DE to a glass of water or juice (or any liquid)
  • stir and drink up !

Since it has no taste really, it can be mixed with most beverages.

Diatomaceous Earth for it’s Silica Benefits:

DE also contains quite a bit of silica. To use for the benefits of silica, you can use substantially less.

This method assures your body absorbs the most of the silica and can also make your little bag last for years. It is the most economical way to use your precious diatomaceous earth.

  • 1 tablespoon
  • 1 gallon of water (3.75 litres of water)

Put one tablespoon of silica in your gallon of water ( I use a smaller water bottle, it’s more practical) and just let it settle. The DE will then sit at the bottom, and just leave it there.

Take little sips throughout the day. When the water levels gets too low, just add water. Let the mud deposit in the bottom, it is slowly delivering the silica. You could do that on and on for years without changing the DE, but most people change it every few months.

You do NOT need to keep in the refrigerator, but you can if you want to.
Do not add anything else (like juice or sugar) If you want to change the taste, pour yourself a glass first and add juice or whatever to your liking.

DE will be more effective if you add it to the water and let it settle. You will get more of the benefits of silica this way.

Organic Garden Pest Control:
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. Food grade Diatomaceous Earth will not harm earthworms or beneficial soil microorganisms.

For control of aphids, white fly, beetles, loopers, mites, 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 cannot build up resistance. Diatomaceous Earth will not harm earthworms or beneficial soil microorganisms. Wear a dust mask when applying large amounts of it.
