postheadericon Poultry Science Study About Effect of Using Diatomaceous Earth

An very extensive study was submitted to Poultry Science. The study was entitled “Effect of diatomaceous earth on parasite load, egg production, and egg quality of free-range organic laying hens” by D. C. Bennett1, A. Yee2, Y.-J. Rhee3 and K. M. Cheng

I will be the very first to admit I am not much for reading this stuff in it’s entity… and I will admit my eyes glazed over at times with some of the information that was presented.. BUT… this study documents the importance of using diatomaceous earth around poultry. Even though I skipped a few parts of this information, I am sure it would mean a great deal to many. I was still able to grasps what a wonderful benefit adding DE to the keeping of poultry is.

This is the starting lines of the study…

The effectiveness of diatomaceous earth (DE) as a treatment against parasites and to increase feed efficiency and egg production of organically raised free-range layer hens was evaluated in 2 breeds of commercial egg layers [Bovan Brown (BB) and Lowmann Brown (LB)] that differ in their resistance to internal parasitic infections. Half the hens of each breed were…

postheadericon Studies Done About Diatomaceous Earth by Red Lake Earth

I love chickens. They are such fun to have around. I have been reading a lot about adding diatomaceous earth (DE) to their feed and also letting them enjoy it as a dust bath will make for much “Happier Chickens.”

Happy Chickens means better looking chickens, more eggs production, just all around healthier/Happy Chickens.  Red Lake Earth did several studies about the benefits of adding DE to chicken feed. The results of the study was very interesting, in fact after reading the studies I would hope that everyone who raises any number of chickens from 1 to a zillion should be adding this wonderful, all natural product that is indeed good for every one and every thing.

The first study I would like to post was done by….

RED LAKE EARTH ……Effect on Bone Mineralization

Previously we showed that free-range hens fed diets supplemented with diatomaceous earth (DE) were significantly heavier, laid more eggs, and consumed more feed than hens fed the control diet, with no differences in feed efficiency. In the present study….. you can read the entire study here.

Red Lake Earth did another study called Effect of Dietary Diatomaceous Earth and a Single Topical Application of llarn Fresh on House Fly, Musca domestica L., Breeding, Egg Quality and Selected Manure Nutrients. Now that is quite the title for a subject but the jest of the whole thing is…… Using DE on the chickens and around the their living quarters cuts down on flies…. amongst other interesting findings. Your able to read the entire study here.

postheadericon Parasites… Another Cause of Disease


Medical studies have estimated that 85-95% of the North American population has at least one form of parasite living in their bodies. There are more parasitic infections in the United States than in Africa. Chances are pretty good that you are in that percent and have a parasite living inside you. I found another great article . Here is the contact email.

Parasites Cause Disease and Are More Prevalent Than You Think

Parasites are probably the most unsuspected cause of disease among human beings. Medical studies have estimated that 85-95% of the North American population has at least one form of parasite living in their bodies. There are more parasitic infections in the United States than in Africa.

A parasite is an organism that lives off the host (human body). It obtains food from the host and contributes nothing to its welfare. Some parasites harm their hosts by causing irritation and interfering with bodily functions, while others destroy tissues and release toxins into the body. Parasites range in size from microscopic to several feet long, and there can be over 100 different types of parasites living in the human body. A female parasite can release 3,000 to 200,000 eggs per day depending on their type. They live and breed inside your intestinal tract, but they can infect the lungs, liver, brain, muscles and joints, blood, skin, sinuses, and eyes. An ABC News special in November 2008 reported on a woman who underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor. However, during the surgery, neurosurgeons found a parasitic worm that was eating her brain.

Parasites can also live in the body for many, many years. In 1979, a British study done on 600 former prisoners from World War II, who had been stationed in the Far East, found that 15% were still infected with a parasite that they had contracted during the war.

Parasites are a major cause of disease. They secrete toxins and steal vital nutrients from our bodies which can create an extremely stressed immune system; they can cause physical trauma by perforating the intestines, circulatory system, lungs, liver, brain, and, in general, the whole body; they can erode, damage or block certain organs by lumping together in balls, and have been mistaken for cancer tumors; they depress the immune system; and they can destroy cells faster than cells can be regenerated.

Giardia is the most prevalent intestinal parasite in humans, and is found in drinking water. Malaria is caused from a bite from a parasite-infected mosquito. (According to the World Health Organization, malaria kills nearly 2 million people and infects 400 to 500 million each year.) Arthritis can be caused by microscopic parasites getting into your joints and eating the calcium linings of your bones.

Symptoms will be very similar to a number of different diseases or ailments. Some of the common symptoms are constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, sleeplessness, restlessness, depression, irritability or mood swings, allergies, prone to disease, weight gain, skin conditions, blurred vision, bad breath, worsening memory, and lack of concentration. Other conditions of parasitic infection could be acid reflux, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, migraines, and even heart disease and cancer.

There are many ways you can get parasites – contaminated foods (uncooked meats and unclean fruits and vegetables), contaminated water (especially in lakes, rivers and streams), poor hygiene, pets, inhaling dust (can contain dried forms of parasites) and blood sucking insects (mosquito). And guess what else? Contaminated food handlers have been found to be the biggest culprits in the transmission of parasites.

There are practical ways to prevent parasitic infections. The most effective way is to practice good personal hygiene – wash your hands several times a day. Wash all fruits and vegetables, thoroughly cook meats and fish, drink pure water, keep your living environment clean, and de-worm your pets. Also, avoid high carbohydrate, low protein diets, and sugar (parasites love sugar).

If you think you may have a parasitic infection, initially, the best way to begin to eliminate parasites is to cleanse your colon in conjunction with a parasite cleanse. Parasites can’t live in a healthy colon

postheadericon Would you know if you had parasites?

Do you think you have a parasite? Before you say “of course NOT” you may be shocked to know that many people do indeed have parasite and have no idea that they are playing host to these creepy things…..Great Article from vaxa.com website.

Do You Have Parasites, But Just Aren’t Aware?

Parasites are everywhere, and according to the article Are you clear of Parasites, by Dr. Ross Anderson, 85 to 95 percent of the adult population has parasites. If this is the case, how do we get them? Unfortunately, you can get them from water, uncooked meat, and unwashed vegetables. You can even get them from, shaking hands, sharing drinks, kissing and even inhaling dust which contains a dried form of these organisms.

Though it is not necessary to get paranoid about having them, it is important to get rid of them.

What is a parasite? A parasite is an organism that lives off of the host humans or animals. The parasite lives inside our bodies feeding off of the food we eat, even the supplements we take.

How do you know if you have parasites? Some signs that a person has parasites include itchy nose, ears, or anus, sexual dysfunction, forgetfulness, gas, bloating, fatigue, heart pain, unclear thinking and weight gain.

Other symptoms may include constipation, allergies, diarrhea, pains or aches in the back, joints or muscles and eating more than normal but still being hungry.

What’s Eating You? 8 Terrible ParasitesBy LAUREN COX and (@DanChildsABC)

June 11, 2010
 

A year and a half after traveling abroad, one might think he’s free and clear of infection.

But a 25-year-old man in California headed to the emergency room last year with a burning feeling and something squiggling under the white of his eye.

Doctors at the Highland General Hospital Department in Oakland, Calif., immediately started investigating what creature had decided to make its home under the man’s skin. They reported on their discovery in the June issue of the Annals of Emergency Medicine and kept his identity anonymous.

postheadericon Parasites Affect Poor Americans

As if poor Americans didn’t have enough to worry about.. now they can add “parasites” to that list. Study finds that roundworms may infect close to 1/4 of inner city black kids… How scary and sad too. You can read the article below.

Parasites affecting poor Americans

Roundworms may infect close to one-fourth of inner city black children, tapeworms are the leading cause of seizures among U.S. Hispanics and other parasitic diseases associated with poor countries are also affecting Americans, a U.S. expert said Tuesday.

Studies show many of the poorest Americans living in the United States carry some of the same parasitic infections that affect the poor in Africa, Asia and Latin America, said Dr. Peter Hotez, a tropical disease expert at George Washington University and editor in chief of the Public Library of Science journal Neglected Tropical Diseases.

postheadericon Parasites In The News

A new report out of Washington says  Diseases caused by worms and parasites are draining the health and energy of the poorest Americans.
Topics in the report are:
~~’Diseases of neglect’ stem from lack of care, poor sanitation
~~Roundworm parasites infect 14 percent in U.S.
~~Increased threat after Hurricane Katrina

You can read the report below ..

(Original source: Reuters (from msnbc website- www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25352442/ ) – 6/24/08)

Worms and parasites afflict the poorest in U.S.
‘Diseases of neglect’ stem from lack of care, poor sanitation, report says

WASHINGTON – Diseases caused by worms and parasites are draining the health and energy of the poorest Americans, an expert said on Tuesday.

And “diseases of neglect” associated with the developing world, such as dengue fever and Chagas disease, may become a bigger problem for the United States as the climate changes, said Dr. Peter Hotez of George Washington University and the Sabin Vaccine Institute in Washington.

“The message is a little tough because they are not killer diseases — they impact on child development, intellectual development, hearing and sometimes even heart disease,” Hotez said in a telephone interview.

He said the diseases help to keep people mired in poverty, as infections may last years, decades or even lifetimes.

“Throughout the American South during the early twentieth century, malaria combined with hookworm infection and pellagra (a vitamin deficiency) to produce a generation of anemic, weak, and unproductive children and adults,” Hotez wrote.

The parasitic diseases are having similar effects now, he said.

Hotez reviewed nine diseases affecting at least 10 million Americans for a report in the journal Public Library of Science Neglected Tropical Diseases, which he also edits.

“These diseases occur predominantly in people of color living in the Mississippi Delta and elsewhere in the American South, in disadvantaged urban areas, and in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, as well as in certain immigrant populations and disadvantaged white populations living in Appalachia,” he wrote.

They include ascariasis, the most common human worm infection. It is caused by a parasitic worm that lives in the intestine, and infected just under 4 million people in 1974 according to the last survey, in the South and Appalachia.

Roundworm parasites infect 14 percent in U.S.
Toxocariasis, a roundworm parasite transmitted in dog droppings, infected up 2.8 million poor black children living in inner cities, the South and Appalachia, Hotez said. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates these roundworms, which can cause intestinal illness and blindness, infect up to 14 percent of the U.S. population.

Strongyloidiasis is caused by a threadworm that lives throughout the body and infects 68,000 to 100,000 people. It may cause a hyper-immune reaction in some people.

Cysticercosis caused by the pork tapeworm and giardiasis, a diarrheal illness caused by a one-celled parasite, are also common, Hotez said.

One threat to babies is cytomegalovirus, which infects 27,002 newborn annually, causing deafness and mental retardation.

“It’s amazing what we tolerate,” Hotez said. He noted the United States spends $1 billion a year preparing for outbreaks of diseases that have not occurred, including smallpox, anthrax and avian influenza.

“But these (other) diseases are occurring among voiceless people,” he said. “It’s an unintended form of racism in a sense. We need to make these disease household words.”

Increased threat after Hurricane Katrina
Chagas disease, caused by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, infects as many as 8 to 11 million people in Latin America and may become a U.S. threat, Hotez said. “In Louisiana, almost 30 percent of the armadillos and 38 percent of the opossums are infected with T. cruzi, and a case of Chagas disease was recently reported in post-Katrina New Orleans,” he wrote.

The report also noted that flooding and poverty in Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Katrina have created conditions where viral diseases can thrive.

“In the coming decade, global warming and increased flooding in the region could combine to promote dengue and Chagas disease epidemics among the poor in Louisiana.”

Dengue, carried by mosquitoes, can sometimes cause a deadly hemorrhagic fever and has been reported in Texas.

Better sanitation, piped clean water, improvements in housing as well as better testing and medical treatment could help curb these “diseases of neglect,” says the report.

postheadericon The Silent Killers Not Spoken About.. Parasites

I have been reading many articles lately about all of the wonderful things that diatomaceous earth is used for.  I have always said that it is good for everyone and everything. It is an all natural product. One of the uses is to get rid of parasite. It may surprise you to know that many people have parasites living inside of them.

I eat my dirt daily and I also give it to my cats and dogs.  It is good to know that controlling parasites is just one of the many benefits that it offers.

Here is a very interesting article about those creepy disgusting things called parasites. Yes I itched when I read it. I bet you will too.


PARASITES – THE SILENT KILLERS
By Harry Elwardt, N.D., Ph.D.

The famous, Dr. Zoltan Rona, author of many books and newspaper columns writes:
“The incidence of parasitic disease in North America is skyrocketing because of increased
international travel, contamination of the water supply (remember a few years ago what a
water-borne parasite did to 400,000 people in Milwaukee) and the overuse of chemicals,
mercury and prescription antibiotics.  Tapeworms, hookworms and a long list of amoebae
are far more common in the North American population than conventional medical experts
led the population to believe.

In 1991, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research staff stated that we have a tremendous
parasite problem right here in the United States.  It is just not being identified.  Other
medical studies show that as high as 85% of the adult population has one or more types of
parasites.  Some authorities feel this figure may be as high as 95%.  The World Health
Organization estimates that almost one billion people have hookworms.  That’s about one
in five of the earth’s entire population and it is not a third world country problem as many
people believe.  Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the
National Institute of Health says:  “In terms of numbers there are more parasitic infections
acquired in this country than in Africa.”

The purpose of this report is not to scare you, but to enlighten you as to the severity of the
problem and what you can do to protect yourself and your family.

WHAT IS A PARASITE?

A parasite is any live organism that grows inside your body.  There are two basic
categories of parasites, large and small.  The large parasites are easy to see with the
human eye, can weigh several pounds and can grow to several feet long.  The longest
parasite can be caught from eating fish and is appropriately named a fish-tapeworm; a
mature adult can reach an incredible 30 feet in length.  The small parasites are
microscopic in size.  It makes no difference which type of parasite you have; all can cause
serious illness and death.

The parasite is an organism that lives off the host and the host being you or me.  The
parasite lives a parallel life inside our bodies, feeding off our own energy, our own cells or
food we eat.  Parasites are even feeding off the health supplements we use, thus greatly
diminishing their effectiveness.  Humans can play “host” to over 100 different kinds of
parasites.  Contrary to popular belief, parasites are not restricted to our colon alone, but
can be found in other parts of the body; in the lungs, liver, muscles and joints, esophagus,
brain, blood, skin and even the eyes.

You are probably wondering how these creatures can live inside our bodies without our
awareness?  “The answer to this is simple,” writes Dr. Ross Anderson, one of America’s
foremost parasitic infection specialists.  “The purpose of a parasite is not to make itself
known.  A smart parasite lives without being detected because if it is detected, of course,
something is going to be done to eradicate it.  If you think parasites are stupid, think
again.  They are highly intelligent organisms.  Not intelligent in the same way as humans,
but they are intelligent in their ability to survive and reproduce, which is of course the
purpose of any organism on this planet.”  It would also be important to note the incredible
rate at which parasites can reproduce.  For example, a female hookworm can lay 10,000 to
25,000 eggs at one time, a round worm is capable of laying 200,000 eggs a day and the
fish-worm mentioned above, can lay an incredible one million eggs.

Approximately 30% of parasites reside in the digestive system.  The other 70% are located
throughout the body in the bloodstream, muscles, bones, various organs, including liver
and pancreas, sinus cavities, eyes and even the brain.

HOW DO YOU BECOME INFECTED?

Sources of parasites are many.  Blood transfusions may carry parasites from the donor to
the recipient of the transfusion.  Insects, such as mosquitoes and cockroaches, sometimes
carry parasitic larvae, which can infect humans or animals when they bite us or
contaminate our food.  You can also catch parasites by walking barefoot in infected places
such as public beaches, showers, parks, or even in sandboxes in which children play.

The quickest way for parasite larvae to enter our bodies is through contaminated foods,
improperly washed fruits and vegetables and insufficiently cooked meats.  Highest
concentrations of parasites are found in commercial pork products (bacon, ham, hot dogs,
cold cuts, pork chops, etc.) beef, chicken, lamb and even fish are contaminated.  All meats
should be well cooked in order to kill parasites.

Avoid old food, even one-day old.  The older the food, the more infested it can become.
Old food can become parasite infected if it is sitting out for even a short period of time.

There is another very sure way of contracting parasites, and that is from our pets.  Most
pets are hosts to several kinds of parasites, and their eggs are spread into the
environment frequently through their stools.  From their stools they end up in their coats,
from where we humans get infected through petting, hugging, kissing the animals or even
through the air.  This is especially dangerous for young children who frequently, you could
say, “love their pets a lot more unconditionally” than do adults.  The risk is also increased
for pregnant women or those whose immune system is already weakened.

Finally, parasites can be transferred through shaking hands or the exchange of body fluids
from sexual contact or from saliva in the mouth.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PARASITES IN HUMANS?

What tell-tale signs must we find that would indicate parasites in our bodies?  The possible
symptoms are almost endless.  Ann Louise Gittleman, the author of “Guess What Came to
Dinner!” mentions the most wide-spread symptoms of parasitic infections.  These
“intelligent” creatures are sometimes so clever that they can mask their presence through
some of the most common diseases around.  Symptoms include:

•        Itchy ears, nose, anus or even any constant itchy sensation anywhere or all over
your body.

•        Constipation:  Some worms, because of their shape and large size, can physically
obstruct certain organs.  Heavy worm infections can block the common bile duct and the
intestinal tract, making elimination infrequent and difficult.

•        Diarrhea:  Certain parasites produce a prostaglandin, which creates sodium and
chloride loss that leads to frequent watery stools.  The diarrhea process in parasite
infection is thus a function of the parasite, not the body’s attempt to rid itself of an
infectious organism.

•        Gas and Bloating:  Some parasites live in the upper small intestine where the
inflammation they produce causes both gas and bloating.  Persistent abdominal distention
is a frequent sign of invaders.

•        Irritable Bowel Syndrome:  Parasites can irritate, inflame and coat the intestinal
cell wall, leading to colitis, diverticulosis and even colon cancer.  Fecal matter backs up in
the colon, as much as 10 to 50 pounds and many times more.  It is poison toxic waste, but
great food for parasites.  Diverticulosis means toxemia (accumulation of toxins in the
blood), toxemia means food for parasites, and parasites mean cancer.

•        Joint, Muscle Aches and Pains:  Parasites are known to migrate to encyst
(become enclosed in a sac) in joint fluids and worms can encyst in muscles.  Once this
happens, pain becomes evident and is often assumed to be caused by arthritis.  Dr. Roger
Mason wrote an article entitled, “The Causation of Rheumatoid Disease.”  In this article, he
stated that a specific type of parasite called indolimaxnana is a cause of rheumatoid
arthritis and causes a whole host of muscle and joint-related health problems.

•        Anemia:  Some varieties of intestinal worms attach themselves to the mucosa lining
of the intestines and then rob vital nutrients from the human host.  If they are present in
large enough numbers, they can create enough blood loss to cause a type of iron
deficiency or pernicious anemia.

•        Allergy:  Parasites can irritate and sometimes perforate the intestinal lining,
increasing bowel permeability to large undigested molecules.  This can activate the body’s
immune response to produce increased levels of eosinophils, one type of the body’s fighter
cells.  The eosinophils can inflame body tissue, resulting in allergic reaction.

•        Skin Conditions:  Intestinal worms can cause acne, hives, rashes, weeping eczema,
and other allergic-type skin reactions.  Cutaneous ulcers, swelling and sores, itchy
dermatitis and a number of types of lesions can all result from protozan parasite invasion.

•        Granulomas:  Granulomas are tumor-like masses that encase destroyed large
parasites or parasitic eggs.  They develop most often in the colon or rectal walls but can
also be found in the lungs, liver, pertioneum, and uterus.

•        Nervousness:  Parasitic metabolis wastes and toxic substances can serve as
irritants to the central nervous system.  Restlessness, anxiety, manic depression and other
mental disorders are often the result of a systemic parasite infestation affecting the brain.

•        Sleep Disturbances:  Multiple awakening during the night, particularly between 2
and 3 a.m., are possibly caused by the body’s attempts to eliminate toxic wastes via the
liver.  According to the traditional Chinese medicine, these hours are governed by the
liver.  Sleep disturbances are also caused by nocturnal exits of certain parasites through
the anus, creating intense discomfort and itching.

•        Teeth Grinding and Clenching:  Bruxism – abnormal grinding, clenching, and
gnashing of teeth – has been observed in cases of parasitic infection.  These symptoms
are most noticeable among sleeping children.  Bruxism may be a nervous response to the
internal foreign irritant.

•        Chronic Fatigue:  Chronic fatigue symptoms include tiredness, flu-like complaints,
apathy, depression, impaired concentration, and memory problems.  These physical,
mental and emotional symptoms can be caused by parasites which facilitate malnutrition
resulting in improper absorption of proteins, carbohydrates, fats and especially Vitamins A
and B-12.

•        Immune System Dysfunctions:  Parasites depress immune system functioning by
decreasing the secretion of immunoglobulin A.  Their presence continuously stimulates the
system response and over time can exhaust this vital defense system, leaving the body
open to bacterial and viral infections.

•        Diabetes:  The pancreas exhausts itself trying to produce enough enzymes to
destroy the influx of parasites.  The general wearing down of the pancreas wears down the
Islets of Langerhans and of course, their ability to produce insulin, causing diabetes.

•        Excess Weight:  Parasites can throw our appestat (appetite mechanism) off
balance and nothing on earth can help us lose weight.  When the large intestine is
compacted with encrusted fecal matter, we cannot eliminate properly.  Because of this
build-up over time, we get protruding stomachs, carrying around pounds of waste.  This of
course leads to autointoxication.  If you are healthy, you should have bowel elimination for
each meal you eat.  Three meals should be matched by three bowel movements.

Intestinal build-ups cause re-intoxication of our bodies.  This is made to order for
parasites.  The large intestine can be a major nesting ground for parasites.  According to
Dr. Bernard Jensen, the father of Iridology in the U.S. and foremost expert in colon
research and therapy:  “The average person over 40 has anywhere between 5 and 25
pounds of build-up in their colons.  Parasites of all sizes thrive in this indisposed residue of
fecal matter, slowly but surely toxifying the whole body.”

The build-up of parasites in the large intestine causes gross stomach enlargement,
stretching muscles thereby causing sagging stomachs.  When we do clean out our
digestive systems, particularly the large intestine, we lose considerable weight and inches.
Our stomachs become flat.

When we are very toxic from fecal matter build-up, we crave more toxins.  This means that
when we eat a lot of junk food, we crave junk food.  A junk food or heavily cooked food diet
brings on more parasites and even greater craving for more junk food.

Parasites are a major cause of obesity since they deprive the body of the proper nutrients
and leave us only empty calories as leftovers.  The body also starts craving more and
more food as it is starved for ever-so-needed vitamins and minerals.

•        Cancer:  According to Dr. Hulda Clark, in her ground breaking book, “The Cure for
All Cancers”, claims that most cancers are caused by the “fasciolopsis buskii” parasite and
that every single one of her patients with cancer had parasites.  Once Dr. Clark eliminated
their parasites, incredibly the tumors also disappeared.  In the book, she further claims it is
the ingestion of “innocent” and widely used home chemicals that actually cause the
hatchings and the migration of parasites out of contained areas (such as the stomach) into
the liver and other glands, causing cancer.  It is simply our individual biochemistry plus the
strength of our immune system at any given time that explains why some people get
degenerative diseases while other do not.

•        Other:  The following conditions may also be tell-tale signs of parasitic invasion:
excessive hunger, asthma, bad taste in mouth and bad breath, epilepsy, migraines, male
sexual dysfunction (such as impotence), slow reflexes, Crohn’s or Candida, pain in and
around the naval area, blurry vision, numbness of the hands or feet, burning sensations in
the stomach, and kidney or heart problems.

THE PARASITE SOLUTION

The majority of parasites are found in the colon.  According to the Royal Academy of
Physicians of Great Britain, 90% of all disease and discomfort is directly or indirectly
related to an unclean colon (due to the impacted fecal matter).

The Academy identified 36 different kinds of poisonous substances that form in the large
intestine.  These toxins are absorbed by the bloodstream and have a detrimental effect on
the body.

The legendary Dr. Paul Bragg, an author of many bestsellers about the importance of
internal cleansing and the originator of America’s health-food stores, always stressed that
being “internally clean” is a lot more important than being “externally clean”.

“We all take showers at least once a day to keep our bodies externally clean and yet
constantly neglect to clean our insides on a regular basis.  People are constantly hurting
themselves by eating inappropriate foods and promoting the creation of toxins and colon
build-up in their bodies, which can only be taken out by natural cleansing process.”  Dr.
Bragg is the best example of his own teachings.  He died at the age of 96 in a tragic
accident, while engaging in his favorite hobby, surfing.  When the doctors performed an
autopsy, they discovered that his body was almost equivalent to that of an 18-year old.  He
was exceedingly healthy and strong right up to his tragic death.

Another well-known proponent of regular internal cleansing is Dr. Brian Carpenter, who
says that we must clean the built-up fecal out of colon, in order to avoid self-poisoning.  If
we don’t take the appropriate steps to rid our colons of this build-up and the parasites that
set up home there, then we are actually allowing our bodies to get more and more toxified
with each passing day.  When the body is trying to absorb nutrients through the colon,
which is backed up, it is actually absorbing poisonous fecal matter.  Toxins also block
enzymes and nothing in the body functions properly without enzymes.  Now we are starting
to get a better view of why 90% of all diseases start in the colon, because toxins are the
cause of diseases plus the lack of proper nutrition on a cellular level.

Medical facts reinforce Dr. Carpenter’s views, since today in North America, the third
most common reason for hospitalization among 15-44 year olds are digestive disorders.
Between the ages of 46-65, digestive problems become the second most common reasons
for hospitalization.

No matter what your age, you can restore your quality of life and health if you are
determined to do so.  Your body will respond!

CLEANSE THE COLON

Stewardship’s cleanse product has ingredients, which are specially formulated to work as a
natural herbal way to expel parasites from your body.  This product should be taken daily
for at least 90 days to make sure you eliminate all the eggs, larvae and adult parasites.  I
recommend taking CleanseForLife™ every day for prevention once you eliminated the
parasites.  I also recommend having a colonic done to clean out your colon and cleanse
some of the buildup off the colon wall where parasites take refuge.

CleanseForLife™ also contains fiber, which should contain soluble and insoluble fiber
which will: Fiber will:

1.        Stimulates the colon to release and eliminate refuse that has built up in the system
2.        Absorbs toxins and eliminates them out of the system
3.        Adds probiotic microbes (good bacteria) to the colon which will kill harmful bacteria
and boost the immune function in human cells causing them to produce more anti-bodies
and other substances.  This will help establish, nourish and maintain the natural flora,
which is vital to a healthy digestion system.

VITAMIN C restores colon health and re-establishes peristalisis.  Eliminates constipation
and effectively absorbs and transports harmful toxins from the body.  Works synergistically
to detoxify and reclaim health.

COLLOIDAL SILVER is nature’s antibiotic.  All harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa,
and parasites are killed within minutes of contact with silver.  Parasites are also killed while
in their egg stage.  It is tasteless, odorless and non-toxic.

MSM offers relief from constipation, de-toxifies the body, controls acidity in stomach and
ulcers, coats intestinal tract so parasites lose their ability to hang on and much more.

WASH HANDS

Parasites can be transmitted through shaking hands and petting animals, so wash your
hands frequently.

CONCLUSION

Parasite cleansing is both preventive and curative.  Quality of life, especially after age 50,
can only come with responsibility for your own health.  You are responsible or you would
not be reading this report.  I commend you on your due diligence, but don’t stop here, take
the next step and clear your colon of the toxic waste build-up and parasites, watch what
you eat and supplement daily to give your body the proper nutrients it needs to rebuild a
more vibrant and healthy you.

I have always said that Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is good for everyone and everything.  This article talks about cattle benefiting from having DE added to their food supply.

Mycotoxins are a triple threat to dairy cows
By Peggy Coffeen, Agri-View

Mycotoxin challenges in the dairy industry are increasing. This is probably because of uncontrollable weather patterns that are beyond control, as well as the complex nature of dairy rations with multiple co-contaminants, which can cause increased severity of response. 

Lower milk production, reproduction problems and a depressed immune system… sounds like a recipe for disaster. While an array of factors can contribute to these dairy cow dilemmas, the common denominator here could be mycotoxins.

According to Dr. Trevor Smith, Ph.D., University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, these nasty compounds are showing up more frequently than in the past. Their various varieties and forms can be difficult to detect, but their toll can be devastating to a dairy cow.

“It’s clear that the mycotoxin challenges in the dairy industry are increasing,” states Smith. “This is probably because of uncontrollable weather patterns that are beyond our control, and also the complex nature of dairy rations with multiple co-contaminants, which can cause increased severity of response.”

It is often weather extremes that cause mycotoxins to manifest. Periods of excess moisture promote mold growth, while drought-related stress can be a contributing factor as well. “This last year, in 2012, we had a great example of that right here in the Corn Belt,” he said.

The most concerning mycotoxins for dairy producers are aflatoxin and Fusariums. Testing methods have been well-established for determining the presence of aflatoxins, as these compounds present a human health threat when found above regulated limits in milk. Surveys of the 2012 U.S. corn crop to date have indicated some frequency of aflatoxin, but largely within legal limits.

According to Smith, Fusarium mycotoxins are more complex with a larger number of compounds that vary widely in structure. This makes them difficult to detect in feedstuffs. Analyzing for a marker compound like deoxynivalenol (DON, also referred to as vomitoxin) serves as an indication that Fusariums are present, but the challenge here is that DON may occur in more than one chemical form. For example, in a modified form, it may bond with a glucose molecule that testing does not indicate. “Testing methods will not indicate the conjugated form of DON,” he points out, “so it’s toxic and undetectable.” Other glucose conjugates reported in recent years include zearalenone, fumonisin, nivalenol and fusarenon-X, as well as the very toxic T-2 and HT-2 toxins.

 
 
 

In addition to DON, there are more than 100 other structurally related toxins in the trichothecenes family of Fusarium mycotoxin. These toxins cause overall suppressed immunity and feed refusal, as well as hemorrhaging of the intestinal tract, ulcers, bloody scours and nutrient malabsorption. When zearalenone is present, it can bind estrogen and ultimately lead to reproductive issues, including abortions and infertility.

Significant amounts of fumonisin have been reported this year, which Smith says is “unusual.” The strain of Fusarium fungi that is a major producer of fumonisin is also a major producer of fusaric acid, but feeds are not commonly analyzed for fusaric acid. He points out that while it “takes a lot” of the compound to kill an animal, “it does not take a lot to affect it.” Even when consumed at low rates, fusaric acid can cause a drop in blood pressure that leads to edema and swelling of the udder and feet. When paired with DON, the two “synergistically” reduce feed consumption and cause loss of muscle coordination and lethargy.

Silages are the major source of mycotoxins in dairy feeds. Various toxins may thrive in aerobic conditions that result from poor initial compaction and improper feed-out. Some by-product feeds may also be of concern, like soybean meal. The potential for problems is dependent upon the amount of hulls intermixed with the feed because mycotoxin levels are highest in the hull.

 
 

The best way to reduce the negative impacts of mycotoxins is to avoid feeding contaminated silages and other feedstuffs. However, recognizing that may not be a feasible option, Smith suggests feeding mycotoxin absorbents. These are non-nutritive feed additives that pass through the cow’s digestive tract much like non-digestible fibers. They have the ability to attract and bind small molecules like mycotoxins and exit the body through manure excretion. Inclusion rate is key in the effectiveness of absorbents. If fed in excess, the highly branched polymers can also attract and excrete nutrients the cow needs, like amino acids, vitamins and minerals.

Absorbents are available in organic and inorganic forms. Inorganic adsorbents are either natural or synthetic silica-based polymers. Natural inorganic adsorbents (clays) would include zeolites, diatomaceous earth and bentonite. The synthetic inorganic adsorbents include HCAs, which are designed specifically to be effective against aflatoxins.

Organic adsorbents are carbon-based polymers and may offer the most practical use as a feed-grade fiber source with non-digestible properties. They include activated charcoal, lignin and the glucomannan polymer extracted from the cell wall of yeast. The advantage of the yeast cell wall polymer is a high surface area, which allows practical levels of inclusion (0.5-2.0 kg/ton). This minimizes the potential for adsorption of nutrients and essential intestinal metabolites.

Smith shares the findings of a study that looked at the effects of feeding dairy cows a ration containing naturally contaminated hay, silage, corn and wheat with 3.6 ppm DON (on a dry matter basis). The 18 mid-lactation Holstein dairy cows were fed this ration for 56 days and monitored for several metrics including immunologic response.

“When contaminated feed was fed, there was a significant reduction in the ability of immune cells to destroy pathogens,” he notes. However, the inclusion of an organic absorbent (modified yeast cell wall extract) in contaminated feed given to a sub-group improved white blood cell response and showed higher immunoglobulin (IgA) levels.

A significant elevation in blood urea was also observed when the contaminated TMR was fed, which Smith attributes to the DON reducing protein synthesis in the liver so amino acids that are generally absorbed in the digestive tract were oxidized for energy purposes. Urea levels were lower in cows that received the absorbent.

A separate study that looked at the effects of contaminated feed on calves yielded a similar affect. Veal calves fed corn high in DON showed reduced dry matter intake and a significant urea elevation. At slaughter, these calves had lower hot carcass weights, less backfat and smaller loin muscle area than their counterparts fed a diet that was not tainted by high levels of mycotoxins. Another group that was fed higher levels of DON with an organic absorbent, the modified yeast cell wall extract, showed more similar results at slaughter to the control group.
