Anyone who knows me, knows I'm all about natural. I try my best to stay away from doctors and their prescription pads. I believe western medicine has its place in trauma and yearly wellness check ups but otherwise I'm all about using natural cures. God has provided us with some incredible plants to use.
So last week I went on line to look at natural flea remedies for my pets. One thing I came across was DE.
However when reading the reviews I kept seeing people talking about how they were taking DE for their own health. They were raving about how it got rid of joint pain, lowered their blood pressure and bad cholesterol. Ok.....they got my attention.
For someone about to turn 64, I'm in pretty good shape I guess. I'm not on any medications and have no illness that I know of. I haven't been to the doctor for anything but check ups in about 3 years. However, I did have a total hysterectomy 3 years ago this past April and haven't really felt good since. I seem to have lost all my "get up and go " and have to make myself do anything I do. Now joint pain, I know all about joint pain! In 2001 I was diagnosed with degenerate disk disease and fibromyalgia . Now DDD is nothing more than weak, brittle bones in my opinion. Fibro is said to be an inflamation of the connective tissue. Yes, I hurt! I hurt all the time but I have learned to live with it. On top of these 2 things, last year I started having severe problems with my siatic nerve which was causing hip pain and cramps in my legs and feet. I also suffer from bad sinuses and acid reflux. Let's don't even talk about the pain in my left shoulder!After canning, I can barely lift it! Now my PCP wants me to take steroids for my sinus and Nexium for my acid reflux but instead I use salt water rinses for sinus problems and baking soda for acid reflux. If the joint and shoulder pain gets too bad, I take an Advil. I just refuse to take prescription drugs.
What is Diatomaceous Earth? That's what I wanted to know! So I started doing research, lots of research !! I'm not going to go into a big long spill about it because the internet is full of information you can read. YouTube has lots of videos you can watch of people taking it. The short of it is ~~~ it is 85% silica. What is silica? The most important thing our body needs after oxygen! Silica controls everything in our body! Skin, hair, nails, bones, teeth, all body tissue. Babies are born full of silica that is why they are smooth with rosy skin. Silica helps our body to absorb nutrients. We are nothing without silica! So I went from researching DE to researching silica. I suggest you research silica first then DE. I think I have been silica deficient for years!
Now, here is my story of taking DE. Last Wednesday July 27, 2016 the DE I had ordered from Amazon arrived. I knew from research that I was going to be taking it in the morning on an empty stomach so I waited for the next day to start. On Thursday morning I woke up with severe shoulder and hip pain and stiff as a board! I drank my coffee then fixed my DE. I put 1 teaspoon in 2 ounces of water and drank it down. I followed that with about 4 more ounces of lemon water. Now it is a fine white powder about like flour so you have to stir it up good. It really has no taste, maybe a little bit chalky. Not hard to take at all.
Now this is why I used the word miracle. In about 4 hours, a miracle happened!! I noticed that I had NO pain. None! Now I'm not telling you that it will work this fast for you or that it will work at all for you. I'm telling what this inexpensive all natural product has done for me. It has given me my life back! I have had no back or shoulder pain in a week! No stiffness! I have had no leg or feet cramps, no acid reflux, my sinuses are clear and my energy has sky rocketed ! My motivation is back! I have been a house cleaning demon for the past 3 days! I am praying it continues because I haven't felt this good in years! I'll never miss a day taking DE !
So, I just wanted to share my story and maybe help someone who is suffering from the same problems! If you decide to try it I would love to hear about it ! It's time to go take my dirt !! Have a great weekend everyone!
