Diatomaceous Earth




Diatomaceous Earth as a daily supplement, is most beneficial for internal cleansing by aiding in the elimination of intestinal parasites, which are unable to develop immunity to the mechanical action of Diatomaceous Earth. DE also detoxes the body.

According to a top cancer researcher, it is also the best natural chelating product available for pulling heavy metals from the bloodstream. Many believe that the increase in the number of cases of heavy metal poisoning has occurred in part due to mercury in vaccines, fluoridated water, deodorants with aluminium, some seafood, foil wrap, cooking in aluminium cookware, aluminium cans.
