I've been using DE for a week now and in the past few days I've experienced sore muscles especially in my legs, is this normal and should I discontinue the use of it?

In response to the Detox with DE, I can personally say that after 2 weeks on DE I feel great, it has detoxed me and is working on my energy level as well as some other ailments I suffer with. I found the first few days I was going to the bathroom more frequently.... But that only lasted a short time.... this product is amazing, I use it everywhere, for insects, in my garden, and around my home....

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.).
I have just begun taking this in the mornings. According to information I have researched, it's good for just about everything and filled with all the minerals the body needs. Wondering if anyone else has used it and what results you have had.

First of all, i'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to this wonderful site. My question is about the human consumption of food grade diatomaceous earth. I've been reading some very impressive feedback on its use, however I am sceptical. Has anyone tried it for detox or any other reasons? Thank you.
I buy a huge bottle of green tea with ginseng & honey, I also gargle with salt, tea tree oil and warm water, it had to be a snap choice as my mouth felt and tasted like a cotton ball riding a garbage truck, my food tasted bad or no taste at all.
I also take cell food and colloidal silver, I'm hoping whatever I am doing is slowly working.
I read where most wheat has mycosis which is mold, chickens eat a lot of this and get mycosis then we eat chickens, maybe a lot of other animals as well.
I also plan on trying Ted's remedies. I need all the help I can get. I hope to start a program like Montel's program of juicing my own veggies/fruits etc. I have been doing whatever is easy or quick, I gave up red meat where I cheated last week an got a negative feeling body wise.
so I hope to keep trying. I know there is hope & keep trying.Thanks/Peace"
Who Knew? I just have to make this post because I just for out about the effects of splenda an artificial sweetener I have been consuming for over 10 years. It can damage the immune system, your liver, cause blood sugar spikes, and here I was trying to get well with the BHT remedy, and trying to cure my neuropathy and all the while injesting this poison.
It's all in the garbage as of today and we will be going aue natural (Stevia). Just google splenda and you will see for yourself.
I hope this helps some one and it might be a good idea for earthclinic to have a new tab on harmful foods.
Dear Mama to Many ---- both you and I are into herbs and perhaps you could give me your opinion for my present state of affairs which comprise detoxing with ESSIAC, obtained from Essiac West online.
This is the first time I have the original Four Herb with all the roots in powder form. Prior to it I thought I was detoxing with other non original essiac products. Of course it did not do anything.
Guess what! After three days now I feel I have gone through the mill with nausea, griping, gagging etc. to such extent I became concerned. I had only used one ounce of the herb once at night. Well, it felt like an assault on the open front. I often have a message of an herb when I use it the first time. True enough, this message was lengthy:
The herb coursed through my entire torso, staying there a while, then moving to the next organ and so on. So it was the liver, the stomach, intestines, breasts, the skull, lungs, throat. And it worked there with powerful means I had never before experienced. Intuitively I knew this was way too powerful for my body to cope with and I did not take the herb the next night. But at five the next morning the works started so that I was trembling bending over and clutching my vitals. Instead the previous day where the effects ceased at about eleven in the morning, this day it lasted all day into the evening. At least it did not affect my sleep. Today, on the third day, I feel clear in the head and well but weak.
I phoned Essiac West and they said they had not heard this before and advised to take ginger tea for the nausea and to drink a lot of water. My plan is to wait a day as today is pretty normal, and to start drop wise till a tsp. and so on with a day's interruption till reaching half an ounce. I can well believe over detoxing can kill. It has nothing to do with Essiac herbs per se but with one's personal constitution. My body perspires well.
My one problem is with mercury amalgams. I think I have three. There is no way I can pay thousands for removal and implants with their attendant problems. Which is another unpleasant reality these days. I thought to use green algae for chelation and not to give up OP. I had a metallic taste in the mouth which made me alert.
Can I have your side of thought on this? I greatly believe in the beneficial effects of Essiac. The US gov't pulled on authentic business into court for having issued testimonies of Essiac users. They are impressive as I have seen them. They were told "you cannot do this" and closed their business. Where is the law prohibiting this? The times we live in and where I agree with Ol Henry.
Hope to hear from you. Namaste, Om

I first got turned on to Fenugreek at the Optimum Health Institute (outside Austin, Texas), where I try to go a couple of times a year for a week at a time for several days of juice fasting, ''sandwiched" by several days of raw, organic meals and all the wheatgrass one could consume!
Fenugreek (according to OHI's literature) is a blood purifier, it cleanses the liver, kidney, and pancreas, it soothes mucous membranes and reduces inflammation.
1 tablespoon of fenugreek (sprouted) (again according to OHI's literature) contains: 2.55 grams protein, 6.47 grams carbs, minerals: K, P, Mg, Ca, Na, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu, Se, vitamins: C, B3, B1, B2, B9, A, and it has 2.73 grams of fiber.
I must say that sprouted fenugeek tastes great! I have heard that the tea is not so pleasant...
OHI used a lot of sprouted fenugreek during our days of the food detox portion. I have heard that it is also very good for the lungs. BTW, my boobs never got any bigger since I have brought this into my regular diet. Also remember, sprouted seeds have much more nutrients than the grown plant (per weight).

I read this article from the Mercola site. It is a must that everyone reads it. From the article it seems that what is being sprayed onto our crops and especially the GM crops has the potential to destroy our gut flora.
Seeing as many of our kids have damaged gut flora I wonder if there is a connection.
It also points out how bad soy is (it being a GM crop). I note that Ted mentioned the other day that Soy was getting a bad rap. I hope Ted reads this article and recognises how bad Soy is. Maybe where he is foods and drinks are not being made from the GM soy.
The article also states that cows are now becoming more infertile because of the food supply; something we should all be worried about for our children's future. As they say "knowledge is power".
First time for me, fruit and fruit juice fast.. Only 2nd day but not hungry, when get hungry a little, take an orange, grape, banana, or fruit juice.. Just a little takes care of the feeling.. But what l like happens.. When the body gets hungry and tired of the juice.. It attacks the dead cells, the trash, and the fat in the body.. Eats that for nourishment.. It never attacks the healthy cells or healthy parts of the inners of the body. I never knew that.. Thats really great.. I will hold out for 13 days maybe more. got lots of fat for the body to have a feast. looking forward to get rid of the bad stuff
Better But With Side Effects
I'm doing a liver cleanse that calls for me to eat quite a bit of garlic. I am a massage therapist, which means I work in very close quarters with clients. My wife and 3 others have told me I smell like garlic now. Anyone have a remedy to rid the body smell until I finish in 3 more days?
Re: Herxheimer Reaction to Detox? Long story, keeping it short. I have been paleo and on the blood group diet. The detox was bad for my psoriasis and arthritis but after 7 weeks started clearing. I had a few good weeks and the skin is getting worse again. Is my liver getting rid of more stuff again/more detoxing? This is so not cool and seems like an endless battle.It is a holiday weekend and I just need answers/ someone to help me make sense of this. I am working with a qualified naturopath and am going to call next week. My diet is super clean and have been following to a T. Any input thanks.
Hi Thank you so much for creating this site and helping so many with these remedies!
I am on Day 4 of the Borax, Baking Soda and ACV. At first I had a burst of energy on Day 1 but last 2 days I have been exhausted and have lots of aches and pains. It feels similiar to when I herxed with an antibiotic. Is this normal? Will The Borax cause herxing or a kill off? and if so how long will it last? This germ isn't leaving without a fight!!!
I am dedicated to getting through this but want to be sure I am on the right track. Thanks again!!
HI U GOOD PEOPLE DOIN, , , Been researching about what Ozone Generator to buy to address an illness. I now know to buy a cold corrona glass system. I am amazed at the uses this product has in your home. Bought Ed McCabe's book and wanted to cry when I learned that he is another that the FDA put in prison for advocating natural ways to good health. We all may be next.
My question is have any of you bought and used an Ozone Generator? If so, can you shed some light on your experience. Hope to have an interesting tale to tell in about 6 months. One thing I have started is a flushing Niacin Sauna Detox. That is interesting and ole Ron L. Hubbard wrote a book about this in 1979. I ain't in his group, but he was not a dummy. All the Johnny come lately's are jumping on the wagon now.
Ya'll behave for a change. ==ROBERT HENRY===
