Eating Earth? 2015 friends of Nature by Femi Kusa

How would you feel eating earth? Well, I’ve been eating it every day for some time now. And, recently, my wife joined me. She has learned not to take it with water. For this increases her bowel motion and she does not like using public toilets because many of them are sub-standard. Now, she’d rather sprinkle it on food. When I wish to double my stool bulk in the morning, I take popcorn snack before the bed the previous evening or night and cap it up with half a teaspoonful of Diatomaceous in a 75cl bottle of water. The following morning, I get up from the water closet seat feeling the relief of a woman who has just had a baby! Don’t ask me how, as a man, I know how women feel after being delivered of a baby. A woman I give Diatomaceous and asked to take popcorn before taking it with water told me this was how she felt

Also, called D.E. Diatomite, this is the edible form of earth. It occurs naturally as a “soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into fine white to off-white powder”.  It is 96 percent silica which, I believe, makes it first choice remedy beyond, say, horsetail, where a high silica remedy is required for therapy. As you may have known, silica is important for digestion, good nail, skin and hair and helps to form strong connective tissue without which the body would be formless and collapse. There are two basic types of Diatomaceous. The first is called food grade edible earth. The other is used as an insecticide. On no account should this be consumed by humans.

Diatomaceous Earth comprises fossilized remains of diatoms. Diatoms are hard-shelled algae. It has been used until now as an abrasive in cleaning products, including toothpaste. After cleaning the teeth with your choice toothpaste, you may put a quarter teaspoonful of Diatomaceous in your mouth and, with the index finger, run it over your teeth and gums many times before rinsing it out. You should have a cleaner, fresher mouth and whiter teeth. It is also used to re-unforce in plastics and rubber, liquid absorbents, anti-black in plastic films activator in blood clotting studies, and a thermal insulator and a component of dynamite, according to some authorities.

Diatomaceous earth has many medical or health uses just coming to light in Nigeria. Because it has a negative charge, it is said to attach to and remove from the body things like chemicals, viruses bacteria, heavy metals and even radiation. Even during pregnancy and nursing, food grade diatomaceous is considered safe. So Versalible is Diatomaceous that some people use it to 91) destroy bed bugs (2) heal toenail fungi (3) deworm pets (4) eliminate fleas (5) overcome food intolerance (6) promote hair growth (7) reduce blood pressure and high cholesterol level. Many people use food grade Diatomaceous for detoxification. Because it can cause lots of toxins to be released into the bloodstream, they say it is better to start with one quarter or a half teaspoonful in a glass of water on empty stomach once a day, and then gradually work up to one teaspoonful or one table tea spoonful a day.

Dr. Darbara Hendel says that it was established in 1940 that life could not exist without silica and water. Silica plays an important role in many functions of the body, especially the Obsorbtion of Calcium and other minerals absorption of calcium and other minerals.

Dr. Hendel says “silica is the most important trace element in human health”. The average human body is said to hold about seven grammes of silica, many people are thought to be silica deficient. For example, silica is said to be crucial for calcium absorption. A deficiency would, therefore, cause calcium deposition in soft tissue and joints leading, for example, to frozen shoulders, arthritis and hardened blood vessels. Thus, many people who are calcium deficient and take calcium supplements while being silica deficient run the risk of their calcium supplementation acting negatively in their bodies.

Other reported benefits of silica and Diatomaceous include normalisation of blood pressure, cholesterol, osteoporosis weight loss, cosmetics, hair, nail, teeth and gums, energy, bacteria, mucus, anti-aging, urinary infections and headache.” Many researchers believe that a transmutation process converts silica to calcium when calcium is deficient. This should be good news for women who suffer from oesteoporosis.

Diatomaceous benefits are so many, according to researchers. I’d only like to add detoxification, briefly, to the ones already listed. According to Dr. Kaayla T. Daniel, Ph.D., CCNJ and Galen D. Knight, Ph.D., in their article, mad at a hatter:

“There is no better product to detoxify heavy metals and radiation from your body than with food grade Diatomaceous Health.

Generally, silica has been reported to stop coughs, upper respiratory system infections, Lung problems, inflammation, urinary and kidney infections improve urine excretion by about 30 percent, eases lower back pain in the elderly, helps female discharges, abscesses, ulcers in the genental area, Servis and mastatis, especially in breast-feeding mothers, mouth odours, regulates blood pressure and high blood pressure, decrease vertigo headache, earache, insomnia. As for diabetes, it is said to promote pancreatic secretions which help glucose combustion. I can personally confirm this. There was a time by random blood sugar hit 136. The following day, I challenged my blood sugar mechanism with the same breakfast which shot up my random and took Diatomaceous over it. To my surprise, the random that day was 100md/gl. There is a lot more Diatomaceous is reported to do which time and space do not permit. So, what else can I say than to say….

Welcome to the world of people who use Diatomaceous or food grade Edible Earth to maintain their health.
