Diatomaceous Earth for Psoriasis Treatment

5 out of 5 stars

I am a 68 year old woman and have had psoriasis on one elbow for at least 6 years. The skin area affected was about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. I read on the internet that diatomaceous earth would resolve this problem. I purchased a 25 pound package of human grade diatomaceous earth (DE) for about $25.00 on the internet. The suggested daily amount to take is 1 heaping Tablespoon in a glass of water. I took this amount for 4 weeks and the psoriasis totally went away. Several web sites also suggested that you make a paste of the earth and put it on the affected area. I did this several times but then just put the earth in water on a daily basis and drank it. This would possibly work faster if you did both the paste and drank the DE in water. I stopped using the paste because it was getting on my clothes. I had tried aloe vera and other skin lotions and that didn't work. Diatamaceous earth is silica and it seems likely that this is a deficiency of silica in the diet. You can purchase smaller amounts of DE for a lesser price if this is all you want to use it for. My guess is that it would take longer to clear up psoriasis that covers a larger area. I was really surprised that this worked in such a short amount of time. The reason I tried this was I read testimonials on at least 6 web sites that said this was effective in getting rid of psoriasis. I will continue to use DE. If this is a deficiency in the diet, my guess is that it would be good to take DE at least several times a week on an on-going basis. In addition to working on psoriasis, it is very inexpensive. If used only for psoriasis, a 25 pound bag should last for many years - likely the reason this is not promoted by the established medical industry.

I purchased the larger amount of DE as I wanted to use it for garden pest control. DE has more than 100 health, pet, garden, and household uses, is not a chemical, and has no dangerous side effects to people or pets.
