  • How to Apply Diatomaceous Earth to Your Pet
    I have found a great short video done by the Green Tip Guy showing how to apply diatomaceous earth to your dog. I thought that you might enjoy watching how easy it really is… This is the exact method that I use…… and he is right my dogs love it TOO!

How Diatomaceous Earth Works*

When Diatomaceous Earth is taken into the body it is working 3 different ways:

Diatomaceous Earth1st: As you can see from the picture of Diatomaceous Earth – (magnified 7000 times) – it looks like a cylinder full of holes–kind of like Rice Chex Cereal. This cylinder has a very strong negative charge. As these millions of cylinders move through the stomach and digestive tract, they attract and absorb bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals. These are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. In addition, any larger parasites that happen to be in the stomach of digestive tract are “cut up” and killed by the sharp edges of the Diatomaceous Earth. All of these activities result in a much healthier body with less sickness. We often hear the phrase “I just feel better” with our Diatomaceous Earth users. This better feeling comes from all the “junk” being removed from the body and by giving our immune system the “jump start” it needs.

2nd: Diatomaceous Earth is very hard. On the harness scale where diamonds are a 9, Diatomaceous Earth is a 7. This is very important, because as those millions of tiny hard and sharp Diatomaceous Earth cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they “scrub” the walls. After only a few months of taking Diatomaceous Earth, the intestine wall is no longer coated with mucus and molds but CLEAN!! The advantages of this are several:

  1. Regular bowel movements (This is the #1 comment everyone makes about DE)
  2. Healthier Colon. This is especially important as we get older. A clean healthy colon keeps away polyps, cancers, and ulcers. Today, many are spending thousands of dollars to get colonics to do the same thing as Diatomaceous Earth does.
  3. Many users report increased energy and needing less sleep. This is a result of all the food and nutrients that are taken in being better absorbed into the blood stream. With a coated colon–many nutrients never get absorbed.

3rd: A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica.   One of the benefits of Silica is that it helps to destroy bad fats. Everyone that we know that is taking Diatomaceous Earth has lowered their cholesterol by 40-50 points. Everyone is also amazed at how their high blood pressure goes down. Go to the page on “Human Use” and review all of the benefits of silica to the body.

  1. Sore joints and ligaments feel better
  2. Skin clears up (acne-age spots-psoriasis)
  3. Hair and nails are stronger and grow faster
  4. Stronger teeth and gums
  5. Healthier respiratory tract–less coughing
  6. Menopause has less symptoms
  7. Healthier urinary tract

The benefits of silica are many. In today’s grains, there is actually a shortage of silica. Years ago, the silica found in our foodstuffs was adequate, but with today’s hybrids and depleted soils, only about 1/3 of the silica needed is supplied in our food. Diatomaceous Earth is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs.

    I just want to know more about prices.

    • Cindy:

      Lynn there are many options available to you in how much you buy. The very best deal is the 50# bag… It will last forever. Perhaps split it with your neighbors or family and friends. I bought my 50# bag last year…. and I think with shipping it was right around $55.00. Just click on the link to the website and see your different options. You will find many uses for it. I am always passing some along to people that I know will love it. They usually end up buying a bag of their own. Cindy

    • Cindy:

      The prices are all listed on the website Lynn. It all depends on how much you buy. I always encourage people to buy the 50 # bag. Go in with a friend or a neighbor it is indeed the very best value for your money. It will last a lifetime.

  • Dee:

    People….please try this stuff…we spend hundreds for junk food and cable tv….WE have to start loving ourselves again…start with Dirt! My entire office takes it now and I can’t tell you all of the benefits we feel….PLEASE just try it…then share it with LOVED ones!!! Love in life and best of health always with dirt! Dee :)

    ** Note…it has no taste just a lil gritty so I mixed it in any juice…your skin will glow…give it like 10 days…come on 10 days people….softer skin….toxins removed from your body!! WHoo-HOO….I’m glad I found this dirt!!!!

    • Cindy:

      That’s great Dee, I am glad to hear you started something. I always encourage people to go in with others on buying a 50 # bag .
      It really is the best value.
      Keep up the good work, and thanks for the great comment

    I have been using food grade DE for about 5 years now as a wormer for my dogs. I also use it as a flea/tick controller not only in my yard, but also inside my house. When we moved here about 7 years ago, the house was flea infested. We bombed 2 times a year for about 2-3 years with no luck.
    Then I found out about DE, and I haven’t used any bombs since. And no spiders in the house either. That’s an added bonus LOL.
    We used it to get rid of carpenter ants in our front tree, and I am going to begin using it myself as a detox for my body.
    I want to make some dog treats using DE for the dogs instead of putting it into their food.
    Is there some way to insure they are getting the correct amount in each treat? They are to have 1 TBS per day. We have 4 big dogs, so it would be much easier to just hand them a treat. :)
    I also wanted to mention that I have also got my sister in law using DE and they love it as well. We split the 50# bag to save money.

    • Cindy:

      I am so pleased that your so happy with the dirt! I love it too. It does indeed work great.

      About the dog treats…. I really am not sure how much to tell you to put in your mix. I think you would have to experiment, how many treats you would get out of each batch that you make would be the first question.

      I sprinkle mine on the dog food, so it is like a powdery coating on it. I really am not to concern that they are getting to much. I have heard that some people only do this once a month. I would do this daily.

      I always dump my dog food from the bag into a huge tub… this make it easy to store it tight and also to mix the DE in with it. But sprinkling on the food in the dish works just as well too. Cindy
