Diatomaceous Earth

I took diatomaceous earth (1 to 2 tbsp per day) for 6 months and got no benefit whatsoever. I had high hopes based on everything I'd read. I'm left wondering if the websites peddling this are a scam. I still give it to my dog daily in hopes it will prevent heartworm.

My husband took DE as well and did not see any help for his problems (skin issues, depression, anxiety, digestion, etc.).
