We recently shared how Diatomaceous Earth (DE) works as a natural bug killer. So, we want to let you in on a little secret: DE is also excellent for helping puppies & even humans with a parasite cleanse? Remember Diatomaceous Earth’s sharp microscopic particles that can cut insects in the yard or wherever you sprinkle it? Well, Diatomaceous Earth can do the same for parasites and worms inside the body.
In addition, this ancient fossil is high in silica. When silica is ingested, it works as a kind of magnet, attracting bad microbes and free radicals. As it passes through the stomach and intestines, it can take toxins with it out of the body.
Diatomaceous Earth may also assist the body in better digestion. It promotes improved bowel movements as it helps “scrub” the intestinal walls. Because of its high mineral content, it is nourishing to joints, skin, hair, and nails. It also assists the body in achieving better cholesterol levels.
Be sure to use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. You can try 1 teaspoon in your puppy’s water. Humans can start by taking 1 teaspoon a day in juice or water. (Be sure to mix well as it can clump.) After a week or so move up to 2 teaspoons. Work your way up to 1 Tablespoon a day always drinking lots of water.
Food Grade DE is safe for children as well, just be sure to use smaller amounts. What’s good for man’s best friend is also good for Man, and Woman, and Child.
