I won't do all that, but I will hold my breath to avoid inhaling it, lol!

I am taking 1 tsp a day with applesauce, apple juice, or yogurt. We'll see how it goes, and I will come back in a while and update you ladies on my opinion/experience! It came in the mail this afternoon, but many say it gives you hella energy, and a sistah IS looking to relax and sleep tonight! So, I will be taking mine in the MORNINGS ONLY! lol :-)

Anymore updates?

I got mine and I stopped already! Lol! Let's just say it didn't feel good in my lungs at all. Kept feeling like I had to cough. I felt it after my 2nd day. Anybody else have this reaction? Yes, I purchased food grade off ebay, but I'm aware that people can give you what they want. I'm not against trying another brand, but I won't take anymore of what I have.

Got my 1lb bag...it is the consistency of flour and it was double packed...

I mixed it with some orange juice...I couldn't taste it...

I also bought some Alta Silica supplements - will try to figure out how to incorporate both - may alternate days...

I got mine yesterday, I also mixed mine with orange juice and didn't taste a thing. I put the D.E. in some sugar free pudding today and it was fine as well, nothing to report yet. I think i need to drink more water.

Update: Ive been getting such good sleep. Last night I took Aloe vera, chlorella, and MSM (as usual) and I was out like a light. I didnt hear my phone at ALL when I got notifications and stuff. My tummy is flatter and I dont eat as much. I also eliminate easily and sometimes twice a day (since I started taking DE).

My DE should be arriving today. I can't wait to start taking it. I will be documenting the progress of both my hair and nails.

Off subject: I started using Nail Magic in December and my nails have improved drastically. Now that I can actually grow some nails, hopefully DE will move things along quicker! If I can get them to 1/2" I will be happy. I have never been able to grow my nails longer than 1/8" without acrylics. My nails are currently at 3/16".

Happy, Nappy Hair Growing!

Here's a comment from one of the members on the thread (I started doing it this way since yesterday and I think it makes a lot of sense):

In order to have proper absorption and receive optimum benefits from silicon – dietary silicon must first be converted to orthosilic acid – the biologically active form of silicon

Taking DE by the spoonful will not be as effective as adding it to a large volume of water, letting it settle out then drinking the water. Silica is very poorly absorbed, so taking a half or full teaspoon at one time will not increase absorption. It will only mean more passing right through the system.

This is why I add a spoonful to a gallon of water. Then I let it settle out. The water will dissolve a tiny amount of the silica forming orthosilicic acid. The excess silica settles to the bottom as a mud. I leave that there. Then I drink the water above the mud throughout the day. This allows me to absorb a small amount of the silica each time I take a drink. This will improve absorption even if stomach acid is low.

As the water level goes down I add more water to dissolve a little more of the silica. Just keep repeating this process. A spoon full of silica will last several years. but I usually change out the silica about every 6 months.
The additional advantage comes from the higher daily levels being absorbed.

To understand this lets say a capsule of silica contains 500mg. And let's say that the body only absorbs 1mg each time you take a capsule. If taking capsules 3 times daily as most capsules are supposed to be used this would a total of 3mg being absorbed daily. That is based on people actually complying and taking 3 times daily like they should. Now if you absorb 1mg per glass of water with DE dissolved in it and you drink an average of 8 to 14 glasses of water throughout the day we can see you end up with a lot more silica in your system at the end of each day.
Thank you for posting this. Not only will the body absorb more but the DE will last longer , that stuff aint cheap. I've been using the above method for the last two days. I already notice a huge decrease in appetite, I don't know what else it could be from since this is the only thing I've changed. I let it sit all day (a 32 ounce container) and drink when I come home then refill it about three more times. DS is even drinking it thinking it's just water

Can the DE be placed in hot food? (i.e. Oatmeal, Grits)

I should have mine by tomorrow myself and I can't wait to start taking it. I need to take my start pics of my body, hair and nails on my start date and take progress pics as I go along.

I should be getting my delivery today as well! The snow slowed down delivery time. Maybe we will start at the same time and can document our progress together!

I ordered some and mine should be here tomorrow (hopefully). Heard it's supposed to snow tonight in my area. I'm excited about this. I've tried so many other things and nothing really helps so I think I need a good detox and I feel like I've gained a few pounds as well. My skin needs clearing up and my thin edges need to be filled in. I would also like my super slow (1/3" a month or 4 in a year) growth to be faster. Even if I only get 1/2" a month, that's still an improvement.

I received my DE and Zeolites this afternoon so I will begin taking it before I sleep tonight. BTW, be sure to note the colour of your DE. White is the colour of pure freshwater DE which is the only one that is classified as foodgrade. I'll update my results after a week. Everyone should consider trying the zeolite as well. Here's some info about it:http://www.longhaircareforum.com/sho...d.php?t=441236

I ordered from earthworkshealth.com. I got a 10 lb bag. It cost me $14.00 but they charge a grip for shipping. So in all I paid $27.20. It's all good though. I could afford it. If all goes well with the 10 lb bag. I'll order the 50 lb bag that costs $27.50. Should last a while.
