I started using Diatomaceous Earth a couple of weeks ago. Started with 1/4 teaspoon in a glass of water and now I am up to 1 teaspoon. I take a heaping teaspoon in half a cup of water and then drink another half a cup of water. I take it in the late afternoon.
I can't tell yet about my hair and nails growing more quickly like so many other people, but two benefits I can report right off the bat:
1. Deeper sleep
2. Fewer trips to the bathroom... from 2-3 typically down to 0-1. That's an improvement!
It definitely dries out my skin so I take omega three oil. Still need to work on drinking more water.
The other side effect is that my finger joints feel just a bit stiff. If I stop the DE, that stiffness goes away. Interesting. I am not sure why since DE is supposed to help with joints due to its silica content, right? Any thoughts on that? Thanks.
