How to Detox With Diatomaceous Earth

By Louise Scrivens

Diatomaceous Earth can be used as a digestive aid to help cleanse the body of toxins. It is a natural product made from fossilized water plants and, when taken daily, can eradicate most intestinal worms and parasites. According to Wolf Creek Ranch website, Diatomaceous Earth is 85 percent Amorphous Silica. The website goes on to say, "Silica is crucial to bones, tendons, skin, cartilage and blood vessels. Silica is even located in the blood itself and important organs such as the liver, heart and lungs."

Drink plenty of fresh water to aid the detox process


Step 1

Make sure you use only food-grade Diatomaceous Earth to detox. This ensures that the product has not been chemically treated.

Step 2

Dissolve less than one teaspoon for every 100 pounds you weigh in a glass of pure water and take once a day. It can be taken for a period of months or years.

Step 3

Stir constantly as you drink, it as the substance does not dissolve easily.

Step 4

Drink plenty of pure water, juices and herbal teas throughout the day to help aid the detox process.

Step 5

Increase the dosage of food-grade Diatomaceous Earth over a number of weeks until you gradually reach two tablespoons per day. This will help prevent a reaction referred to as "healing crisis," which can happen during the detox process as the body tries to get rid of toxins at a rate too fast to dispose of them.
