Diatomaceous Earth for pets & human use
The dogs seem healthier; I have two collies and 4 Bitsers, as well as my mum's dog. Certainly, it seems to be helping with parasites as we had some puppies we are helping find homes for and they had worms coming out their back end. After mixing DE in their food the worms disappeared and they got more active and healthy and ate less - seemed less hungry.
I had a stray male dog that came in for rehab as skinny as anything, bones sticking out of his spine. You could count all his ribs and spine nodules, and he had an eye infection - oozing pus out of his eyes.
I mixed a lot more DE in his feed then for my own dogs, and he has put on weight beautifully, and his coat is shining, and his eye infection cleared up without treatment. Although I did use some turmeric solution for his eye once or twice, he ran away when I tried to apply it the second time, so I had to stick to DE in his food. At first, he ate like there was no tomorrow, but now he eats normally and doesn't seem so hungry anymore.
All my dogs enjoy it and they all seem healthier since taking it. I don't give them too much, just a spoon or so mixed in their feed then I dish it out evenly.
I also read on the Internet that people use DE for flea and tick control. So I applied it by brushing it lightly into the animal coats, and they got instant relief. I also sprinkled it in their sleeping areas and around the home. But it only lasts a day or two then they start itching again, so I will have to do it every few days which is a bit of a hassle. I'll probably go back to my other method - boracic powder or borax, which really works well although it's more expensive - but it lasts for about two weeks then I apply it again.
But we discovered by accident DE is very good for bed bugs, we got attacked and woke up with bites one morning and this went on for about two weeks. In desperation, we sprinkled some DE under our sheets directly onto the mattress and the bites stopped immediately! Every 2 weeks or so when we get another nip or two, we apply DE under the sheets and they stop. The attacks are getting less and less.
For our own health, I have seen some amazing results. I started taking Healthsil in some juice, and several things changed for me which is very interesting. In the beginning, there were some detox symptoms, I had headaches, pimples, and bad body odor for a week or two, then it disappeared. But here is what was most noticeable:
1. I stopped snoring! my snoring has completely disappeared! I have no idea why but DE seems to stop snoring and my partner is absolutely thrilled, he said please keep taking it!! I can only guess that it has killed parasites and therefore I am not so exhausted.
2. I suffer from Chronic Fatigue and I think it is relieving the symptoms. I wake up with slightly more energy than normal - when I take DE regularly, I find that hungover feeling and lethargy are diminished. I also don't get the CFS attacks as much after a day out, when I take it. I just need to take it regularly and I get the energy elevation.
3. Immediately after drinking it, I get a lift, an increase in alertness. I can't take it at night, it keeps me awake, so it definitely makes me more alert.
4. My entire digestive system has improved tremendously in every aspect right through to elimination, and hardly any odor upon elimination.
5. I have arthritis in my fingers and it seems that when taking DE it doesn't flare up much at all. But when I stop, it comes back. So have to keep on taking it.
