  • Daddy, Why do you have to shoot Bambi?
    I am one of those crazy critter people.. I always have been. When I was a little girl my father would go out hunting for deer to fill the freezer. Where I lived people waited all year for it to be deer season. During this season you would see dead deer being hauled around on […]

postheadericon How To Take Diatomaceous Earth

I get asked a lot how to take diatomaceous earth. Everyone is different so we all have to find the way that is BEST for US.
It is important to remember that we are only talking about “Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
I personally have taken DE many ways….
Mixing it with:
Orange Juice
Tomato Juice
Cranberry Juice
To be honest I can’t remember ALL of the ways that I have tried diatomaceous earth.
The Very Best way for me to take diatomaceous earth is to put it in my “Magic Bullet” and whip it with vanilla yogurt and a splash of 2% milk. I drink it as a smoothie. I sometimes add a protein packet or some fresh fruit.
Everyone is different and using my “Magic Bullet” has been the best way for me to Eat My Dirt!

    It says on the bottle to take 250 mgms 3 times a day. How is that measured in tablespoons?

    • Cindy:

      I am not sure what your reading… I can only speak to what I know about and promote… The diatomaceous earth that I talk about is FOOD GRADE and it looks just like flour.

  • Glen:

    I am looking at making daily drinks for on the go….can I mix the diatomaceous earth in a liquid and then take it a couple days later or will it lose its petency?

    • Cindy:

      Hi Glen, I know that many people drink DE mixed with water. They just shake it up before they take a drink because it will more than likely settle at the bottom… They drink it throughout the day. But I will admit I have never drunk it like that. It will not lose it’s potency if that is what your worried about but I think that I would mix it up on a daily basis.. But that is just my opinion… Sorry I am not able to be more help with your question.. I mix mine with yogurt and milk in a blender as a smoothie.Cindy
