I'm still experimenting with it. For October and November, I've had a full inch of growth per month. But I'm also taking GNC Hair Skin & Nails formula, so I'm not exactly sure which of them has boosted my growth of if it's both in conjunction.

Works great.

Default Re: Diatomaceous Earth reviews PLEASE..

I started Monday. I am really excited for the results. I take 2 tablespoons. I drink a mug of green tea every morning. I leave a bit of tea and put in 2 tablespoons. I leave just enough so that the tea covers it (like .5 inches above the earth). The taste is just a little chalky. Nothing really gross. I take Jasmine, Orange, and Passionfruit Green Tea so I don't really taste it.

I'm also excited about the cleansing properties. I KNOW I need some deworming.

Bene, your thread inspired me too!

When do you take your vitamins? I want to make sure I'm taking them at the right time.

Also, can you tell me how your 2 monthes on DE have gone? Any side effects? And how long before the deworming process began?

Thanks!!!

I have a few pounds of it and used it to get rid of some unwanted guest that lived next door, and thought they'd rent a room here.

AND It works like a charm!

I ordered it online. I've had some problems with my firefox and had to delete my history, so I don't remember what vendor I got it from But, I think they're all good as long as they're food grade.

I don't take it like a medicine, I just fill a water bottle, dump a few tablespoons in, shake it up and drink it whenever I'm thirsty. Just remember to shake before you drink because it tends to settle on the bottom.

When it's finished, I add more water, because there'll still be residue left on the bottom of the bottle, and I'll keep drinking until there's no more DE left. Then I'll start again, dumping more in the bottle, adding water.

It doesn't have much of a taste. If anything, it's sort of chalky?

I was doing research on it, and I found that the "miracle" agent in DE is the silica. If you don't want to deal with it, you can always get silica supplements from any vitamin store. I was thinking of doing this, because DE is a pain in the butt sometimes, especially explaining to people what it is that I'm drinking.

I think someone else started the DE thread that described the cleansing effects. I have no idea about de-worming I started doing it because of the hair growth properties. I haven't noticed any effects on my health. I don't feel any better or worse. I wish I could give you more information, but I can't make any claims about cleansing or de-worming.


As for the GNC vitamins, I roughly take 2 once a day, sometime late afternoon. I'm really bad about keeping routines, so just as long as I remember to take my vitamins once a day, it's good enough.

Why? I was looking at other websites, and the food grade one is being used to treat cats and dogs so I'm sure humans can use it too. The thing is though in order to get the full benefits I think we would have to use a lot more than 2tbls. That's how much it said to give a 100lbs dog, they give cows 2% of the weight of it's feed. http://www.arbico-organics.com/1218204.html

Every site I have visited says it's non toxic. The only thing I'm worried about is it making me constipated, because of the calcium. I think it's safe to ingest.

Got my huge jug of this the other day. Started this morning with a heaping teaspoon of the powder in my tea. Since I'm stuck here, stranded in the show, I'm having my tea. It has no taste. I'm starting off with a teaspoon for a couple of days, then I'll move to a full tablespoon after that.

Purchased from here: http://www.earthworkshealth.com/human-use.php

I'm going to mix 1/4 teaspoon in my kitty's wet food tonight; it's supposed to be great for pets.

I'm excited to see what happens.

Question: anyone add to their deep conditioners and/or shampoos? Just curious. I'll be stranded in the house this weekend, so that'll be my time to do some experimenting...

I can't taste anything! It's like MSM. I used to add MSM in my water bottle and there's no taste. Try it!
