Being on the PWFD is leading me away from commercial products towards natural substances for health. I purchased some diatomaceous earth as an insecticide to kill fungus gnats that came in the house with my plants this autumn, but discovered that it comes in food grade quality and has many healing properties. Sounds like a godsend, actually! Here's an article which sounds very exciting for taking this stuff for good health.
After I finished my 5-day vegetable juice fast feeling better than I had felt in a long time, I decided to drink three glasses of liquids every day. One is lemon juice in water, for alkalinity. Another is liquid chlorophyll in water, to make sure I'm getting enough greens. The last is tomato juice to which I'm adding some trace mineral drops for minerals. I think I will try adding some D. earth to the tomato juice to see what that can do for my skin and hair.
I have found a product that is excellent for many health benefits. It is called Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE). The main ingredient in Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a mineral called Silicon Dioxide (SILICA). Silica is used for weak bones (osteoporosis), heart disease and stroke (cardiovascular disease), Alzheimer’s disease, hair loss, and improving hair, nail quality, and much more. It is also used for improving skin healing; and for treating sprains and strains, as well as digestive system disorders.
I now sell quart bags of this product in my exercise studio (Body Designer) for just $5. This is a wonder product!!!
1 or 2 Heaping Tablespoons Per Day Will Improve Your Life! Mix with your favorite liquid and stir occasionally. There is no unpleasant aftertaste.

Lower High Blood Pressure:
Just as Diatomaceous Earth has been lowering blood pressure–it has also been lowering cholesterol!!. The website Earthworks Health reports that they have not talked with one person that has high cholesterol that has not had lower numbers after taking Diatomaceous Earth. Most are reporting 40-60 points lower after only 2 weeks on DE. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it works!
Lower High Cholesterol: Of the thousands of people that are using Diatomaceous Earth, most that have high blood pressure have reported that it has gone down. This is from the website Earthworks Health. It has been so thrilling to talk to people all over the United States and have them tell their stories. We are not just talking a few points—we are talking about LIFE-CHANGING numbers. Doctors are amazed–customers are amazed—You will be too.
Osteoporosis & Joints: Osteoporosis is a symptom of the aging process. As calcium in our body system depletes, our bones become brittle and weak. Taking only a calcium supplement can not correct or stop this threatening and crippling disease because the body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica. Evidence suggests that, instead of affecting healing, supplemental mineral calcium, on the contrary, accelerates the leaching away of bone calcium and thus hastens the degenerateness process of osteoporosis and similar diseases that affect the supportive and connective tissues in the human body.
For Osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the body’s self repair process. Osteoporosis symptoms attack women primarily after menopause but the degenerative process starts much earlier in their younger days. More women are dying of fractures caused by osteoporosis than of cancer of the breast, cervix, and uterus combined.
Silica is responsible for the depositing of minerals into the bones, especially calcium. It speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. More and more research evidence shows that through a transmutation process, silica is turned into calcium when it is needed. That is why some scientists refer to silica as a precursor of calcium. Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn silica into calcium that the bones need.
Natural Weight Loss:
Earthworks Health website reports that they have been getting hundreds of reports from all over the United States that DE is helping people lose weight. Everyone is saying that DE taken in the morning helps curb their appetite throughout the day. Just one more reason to take it everyday!!
Nature’s Internal Cosmetic:
In Europe and Asia Diatomaceous Earth is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. They have no FDA.
Tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging when connective tissue develops an increasing inability to retain moisture when left unassisted. Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue. With silica, vitality and life, which are often lost as the years accumulate, can be naturally maintained or even restored to your skin. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body has enough silica glucosaminoglycane, the collagen will make us look younger. Silica helps with skin problems and injuries including itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, callouses, warts, eczema, burns, frostbite, benign skin sores, insect bites and bed sores.
If you regularly follow a silica regimen, your skin will keep its young look. A good silica supplementation program works far better than other products for maintaining healthier and longer lasting collagen.
Hair That Grows:
Hair is nature’s greatest beauty enhancer. Hair deserves to be pampered. Hair at 90 micrograms per gram is almost as rich in silica as are healthy bones, which contain 100 micrograms per gram. Silica is a major component of hair. Using a good silica supplement should be part of your ongoing hair care program for revitalizing hair. Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures beautiful shine, luster and strength.
Teeth and Gums:
By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also prevents bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that causes the loosening of teeth, which could ultimately lead to tooth loss. Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones, teeth and also lessens inflammation.
Tough As Nails:
Your nail plates are complex protein structures that grow four to five millimeters per month on average. With silica supplementation, fragile nails become normal within a short period of time. Silica will beautify the appearance of your nails and improve their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to breaking.
The restorative effects of silica will be most noticeable on your hair, skin, nails and teeth. Our skin and hair require silica essentially for the same purpose as do other tissues. As we know, the supporting collagen underneath the skin enhances elasticity and beauty. Collagen owes that quality to silica, which provides a beautiful complexion that is more than skin deep.

Daily silica needs of humans are 20-30 mg. In years past, our bodies would get enough silica from our diet. Unfortunately, many of the foods we now eat have lost their nutritional value due to soil nutrient depletion, food processing, and chemicals. Supplemental use of Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is essential to total body health.
You just take 1 or 2 heaping Tablespoons per day with your favorite liquid. Stir occasionally. There is no unpleasant taste.
