postheadericon Why does diatomaceous earth NOT kill the good bacteria in the gut?

I got a very interesting question the other day on my Facebook Page The question was….why doesn’t diatomaceous earth kill the beneficial bacteria in the gut.

The statement “DE does NOT kill the beneficial bacteria in the gut” can be found on many websites. But finding out the “WHY” does it NOT also kill the good bacteria took a bit of digging.

I found the answer by reading many different website and articles and I ending up submitting a different search term to Google with the information that I found. (What did we do before the internet… Thank You Al Gore) I put in the search box… “does bad bacteria have a negative or a positive charge” This brought me to a great looking site. cleopatrashealth.com

I found my answer…….

Diatomaceous Earth will not absorb beneficial bacteria simply due to the fact that DE has a negative charge and bad bacteria has a positive charge. DE will attract and absorb the bad bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc without harming anything good or beneficial.

Before I had found the answer by myself I had sent off this “WHY” question in an email to a friend of mine, Tui Rose who wrote a wonderful book, The Diatomaceous Earth Book “Going Green Using Diatomaceous Earth How-To Tips”. It contains a wealth of information. This was her reply to me…

I did not address that issue in my Going Green DE book although I had heard the same answer you found. The angle of negative and positive polarity is true. I’ve not seen any other answer, but in my next book I am going to place this answer along with the daily supplementation of probiotics. If the body is depleted of good bacteria for any one of many reasons including the use of antibiotics DE does not replace probiotics, so it is still wise to use probiotics anyway.

My next book on DE will include a chapter on Human Ingestion. Should be available in 3-4 months

I for one can hardly wait for this book…. I have so many people asking for more information about the health benefits of using DE.. and being a registered nurse I am certain that Tui Rose will have the information thoroughly researched.

I found this video on a site called Silalive.. It is not very long, and I have not ever heard anyone pronouns diatomaceous earth quite like she does…. It contains great information and sort of addresses the original question that was ask about the “WHY”
