Product Description

Taking a few tablespoons of More Than Alive's DE daily is known to:

  • Regulate blood pressure and cholesterol. Countless amazed customers have written to tell us how after no more than a few weeks of drinking DE, they started to wean themselves off their cholesterol and blood pressure medications. If you've struggled with either of these, you'll be surprised what drinking a little white dirt will do for you too. Try it.
  • Detox the colon. Studies show that most of us are lugging around pathogenic freeloaders and toxins. Lucky for us, evicting those opportunistic tenants is as simple as drinking some of MTA's DE everyday. Say goodbye to the extra pounds stored in your colon.
  • Relieve joint pain. Whether you're recovering from an injury or diagnosed with those dreaded diaseas like, osteoporosis or rheumatoid arthiris, try a little white dirt from More Than Alive everyday and experience pain-free joints again.
  • Strengthens hair and toughens nails. If you are plagued with thin and weak nails or dull and brittle hair, More Than Alive's DE is about to change that for you. In fact, after a few short weeks of consuming DE daily, our customers say they see a noticeable difference in stronger and shinier hair and nails that grow.

About our food grade Diatomaceous Earth:

This is the good stuff. MTA's fossil shell flour is not only from fresh water but also food grade - a must for safe use on humans, animals and gardens containing 84% Silica. Not to be confused with the DE used in pool filters or to fight insects commonly sold at Lowes and feed stores. By God's design, Silica is the most abundant trace mineral on earth, and more specifically our bodies. Healthy individuals walk around with more Silica in their bodies than any other mineral. It's involved in endless body functions and is critical to proper mineral absorption (no wonder it's so vital to good health). Besides, Cayenne pepper, this dirt is THE one "supplement" that will produce immediate improvement in overall health (read the feedback below for first-hand accounts).

Possible Dosages:

A tablespoon stirred into your liquid of choice several times a day is best for most adults. However, consider starting with about a teaspoon to avoid undesireable symptoms as toxins, such as yeast overgrowth, make their way out. Oh, and no need to "avoid taking it with meals and supplements because the DE might soak up some nutrients". That applies to Bentonite Clay and Activated Charcoal, but DE is a supplement and can be consumed with meals and other supplements. Just be sure to up the intake of liquids.

I bake and cook with DE all the time. I add it to breads, cakes, muffins, hot cereal, rice, veggies, just to name a few. Everyone raves about the fact that they can eat my pastries and lose weight.....They are really evicting their uninvited "host".

DE does not kill bacteria, anywhere. It kills insects by absorbing the lipids in their skin, making them unable to breathe. This is a mechanical action. It will not harm a septic tank. In the colon, DE sweeps the colon, making conditions more favorable for good bacteria and unfavorable for bad baceria. This is how it helps to make your colon more healthy. It also mechanically traps parasites, since most of them are larger than the good bacteria. It does not "know" which ones are good or bad. Antibiotics kill all bacteria so you should use probiotics after eating a course of antibiotics, this is why many people get diarrhoea after taking antibiotics.

Yes!! I HAVE!!! It works GREAT!! My friend had bedbugs. Bought and used DE. In 2 weeks his bedbugs were gone! I used it...the 1st 2or3 days, the bugs went NUTS! I think they were rebelling against me! Got real bit up those days...BUT After that!! NOTHING!! Except one lone soldier crawling on the wall...in the process of DYING!!! :-) Put him in a cup to see how long it'd take him to die w/the dust on him. OVERNIGHT BABY!! HE WAS DEAD the next day! Also, this is after OVER a WHOLE YEAR, OVER $2,000.000 DOWN THE DRAIN (exterminating fees), w/NO RESULTS WHATSOEVER!!! It's been about 3 weeks now...got no bites on me, and don't see those little blood suckers anywhere anymore. Just make sure you DUST EVERYWHERE!!!! If you got a piano, DUST INSIDE IT! Tables w/drawers, TAKE OUT the drawers, do the insides, put dust in the drawers...EVERYWHERE!!!! IT WORKS!! Good Luck to Ya!

With horse use I have noticed less production of manure which of course is a concern, As you know, you can lead a horse to water .... Anyone you know have any problems, a cup per horse per day is the least amount recommended. It makes me nervous to have less manure production and I worry about a blockage being created???

annie
April 7, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Karen, do not feed the DE "dry." Mix it with water so that it is a complete liquid and pour it over your hay or whatever your feed is. Make sure your horse is drinking plenty of water (particularly in the winter when they tend to not want to). The DE will not reduce manure production; something else may be bothering your horse. What you will notice is an incredible coat; beautiful, shiny eyes; and excellent hoof condition. Again, start slowly and build up to a cup well mixed with water in a true liquid form. Do not let your horse inhale DE dust.

Ellie
December 13, 2012 at 11:43 am

The other comment is absolutely correct. For feeding to a horse you must mix it with a ton of water. For my horse I use beet pulp to mix his supplements into, I make it really soupy so there is a gallon or so of water with a few cups of beet pulp and his other supplements. I usually warm the water up little which makes the beet pulp soak faster and he slurps it all down. Automatic waterers or putting a ball in the water bucket will often encourage a horse to drink more as they like to play with those things. Just remember if you feed beet pulp to always buy the plain, not the molasses coated stuff. They don't need any extra sugar.

You should start out with a small amount of food grade Diatomaceous Earth - 1 tsp and drink plenty of water. Work your way up to 1 or 2 Tablespoons a day with lots of water. You are experiencing die off. I had the same thing. Don't give up. Try again but slowly.

Yes, it does kill scabies. My husband and extended family all had it 6 months ago. We used 25% food grade DE with 75% grapeseed oil. Shake well and apply all over skin daily except for face (although my husband did and was okay). You must do this for at least two weeks because the eggs and the bugs are hatching out of your skin over time and over several generations. Of course wash bedding in hot water and clean surfaces. We washed floors with 100% borax and left film on floor and put dry borax in carpets (use a lot, a box per room if needed, and sweep it in and leave it there). We just dried those suckers up and they were gone! We didn't need those toxic pesticides on our skin and our small children!

DE is just as good for animals as it is for humans. It was used for animals (all kinds) even before humans figured out it would be good for us also. Just keep the dose down. I think it says how much to give at the beginning of this page. Remember animals need a watchful eye, as they may drink lots of water they may not be getting enough if the dose is to high. Start with SMALL doses for animals, keep an eye on them and work your way up to recommend amount. Should not go beyond recommend amount, but may need to give less, as with people they are all different. Some people can take 1 -2 T. while others can only do t. (for always). :)

Hi, Started taking DE 8 days ago. like the effects. pain in knees reduced. do not need ibuprophen(sp?) any more. BTW reduction of pain came after the 2nd day. age spots faded after the 1st day. initially took 1 heaping teaspoon in the morning (in water), followed by another at around 4:00 pm. have upped the quantity to 2 heaping tsp in the morning and afternoon.

have noted a slight tingling sensation in the middle of my back, which comes and goes. not too concerned yet. my wife on the other hand took 1 tsp in the morning and a half teaspoon in the afternoon. severe internal cramping. did not take DE the next day and it went away. now taking half a tsp in the morning and afternoon. no more cramping. will up the quantity once her body is use to DE (if it ever does). have not notice any benefits yet (only on the half tsp regiment for 2 days). anyone one else notice any side effects from its usage?

This is bar none the best supplement I have ever taken for skin health. My impression is it's benefits are being suppressed in the States because it has long been used as a skin tonic over seas.

I am disabled and spent most of my time in bed with pain meds, it has only been 4 days and I am up doing things I have not done for a long time, my husband is happy, he does not have to do all the work in and around the house by himself any more. He is starting to take food grade Diatomaceous Earth also.

We have 3 old cats, one has suffered for months with what we thought were hair balls. Nothing helped the coughing or being sick all over the house. Finally figured out it was worms. I knew she could not handle the poison they use for worms, so I got on the internet for a safer remedy and found DE. What a blessing, within 2 days she was up acting like a young kitten again. No more coughing, no more clean up. I now give it to all our cats everyday and us also. Can not believe the energy we all have now.

My sweetheart is on Coumadin (aka, rat poison) and he took DE earch for a month before having a check-up. His blood test showed his coumadin level was low so he went off the DE for a month and his next test was "normal". Since DE absorbes poisons and coumadin is a mild form of rat poison, it makes sence it would interfere with it's absorbtion. I take my DE at night before going to bed and my supplements in the mornings. This routine works for me. Been taking it now for over a year. I take several weeks off at a time to "rest". My intent is prevention.

Stef

July 17, 2011 at 6:29 pm

Important to note.... If you take too much too fast you can have die off effects...kill bad stuff too quick and make you feel ill...headaches, nausea etc. You should start out with a small amount of DE 1 tsp and drink plenty of water. Work your way up to 1 or 2 Tablespoons a day with lots of water.

My husband and I buy diatomaceous earth from More Than Alive and have been taking "dirt" as we call it for about two months now, and there are myriad positive side effects.. From stronger hair, to easing of his tinnitis, to my arthritis easing up a lot. But the one I didn't expect was the normalization of blood pressure. My husband has (hereditary) high blood pressure, and I have low (like 90 - 50 range) low blood pressure. We have observed that his is consistently coming down while mine is going up. Today I was at 134 / 77 which is great. So - it appears that blood pressure normalizes either direction...

We have started using DE flea control for an experiment our holistic vet is doing. So far it seems to be slowly working. We have just done our second dusting to capture a second flea cycle. We are seeing less fleas every week. We have 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters and 1 chicken. So far so good. We have dusted all the animal bedding and our couch each week. We have washed the dogs once per week and are dusting them twice a week. We have dusted the yard once and added pine shavings and DE to the chicken coop. I am starting to see a decrease in flea activity. We have also added to their food.
My husband decided to start taking it as well. He was 6' 8" 245 pounds. A week later he is down to 236. He has had extreme detox symptoms. He started taking 1 heaping teaspoon. This may have been too much for him. Until about 6 months ago he has had a very poor diet so he may have released A LOT of toxins into his system. He has had fevers, interrupted sleep pattens, weakness, triggered migraines, chills, heat flashes, sweating, lack of appetite, mood swings, emotional out burst and host of other flu like symptoms. Luckily he is a home schooling stay at home dad so he has been able to rest when needed. I am kind of impressed with the power of the DE. I am 5 months dairy and gluten free and went through a more mild detox and had similar issues but much less severe. He is on day 7 of these intense symptoms. Has anyone else heard of experienced anything like this? Please excuse any auto correct typos I am on my iPhone. Thanks in advance for any insight.

Just wanted to update my previous comment. We are 3 weeks in and almost flea free. I think if we treat a few more flea cycles we will be flea free!!! So I am considering the DE flea abatement a success. The husband is feeling much better and has starts taking. 1/4 teaspoon of DE without any negative reactions. I am on week two and up to a 1/2 teaspoon. I am feeling great!!! I felt very thirsty and drank lots of water the first few days. I felt my body going through a little detox cleanse. So far loving the way I am feeling. Lots of energy, cannot wait to get out of bed.

If DE is like little pieces of glass that scrape your intestines, can it cut you also and maybe cause bleeding?
Thanks.

To Eileen
I would not worry. DE will not cut you. If DE is used for ridding your pets of fleas, it will cut through their exoskeleton (outer shell), drying them, then they die. But in the human intestinal tract, it acts more like a very fine polishing agent. DE is ground to a very fine powder. Like cornstarch or flour. Very safe.

What is the differance between human grade and feed grade? What I have seen being sold to add to feed as anit cakeing agent is labled food grade. It has benodite clay in it. Would that be safe for humans if you can feed it to your animals?

Cat
August 28, 2011 at 2:30 pm

All DE contains crystallized silica which is non-biodegrable and harmful except it is usually less than 1% in Food Grade DE so it does no damage- Pool DE has 70+% of crstallized silica in which is why it is poisonous and should not be taken. Food Grade DE is made up of amorphous silica which is the good stuff and a mineral our bodies need. You want to buy DE that has 90+% of amorphous silica. 100% is best. Also purity is important as you don't want clay in your DE, this is an impurity sold in cheap DE. If the DE you buy is dark than there is too much clay in it. Should be white to off white in color.
After 4+ hours of doing research on DE- Food Grade Freshwater. I ordered 4lbs of DE and I just started taking DE yesterday. 1 tsp. - I really don't like the taste of it. It's gritty in my drinks and tastes like concrete or chalk. Anyone have suggestions on taking DE so I don't have to taste it?

Christine
September 1, 2011 at 9:39 pm

I've heard that some put food grade Diatomaceous Earth in applesauce to help with the taste. I take it in a large glass of orange juice or milk. Milk seems to hide the taste more than orange juice.

Dennis
September 6, 2011 at 3:22 pm

I think the word "taste" is a 'mis-nomer' - what i think you're trying to get around is the "texture" (it Has No 'taste' to Me!) - Initially, i drank it in plain water, and if you put it into a small bottle, shake it, and then "chug" it, it's a smooth transition from the bottle to the esophagus, and on down ;- ) - I THEN started using an empty 16oz GT's Organic Raw Kombucha bottle and putting 8oz water and 4oz Welch's grape juice, (mostly to flavor the water), and a Tblspn of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (You can't even tell it's there ;- ) ~ The very BEST thing that i've used is 8oz of juiced watermelon, (juice the rhine also, Jay Kordich, and other juicers all recommend), ALWAYS in a small bottle so's it can be shaken. I hope this will be helpful to you ~ Enjoy, Dennis

Maybe I missed it on this page, but I did not see the information that DE has an extremely drying effect on the skin. It is important to know if you use it in your face or handle it with bare hands. Also, avoid breathing it in. Other than that, this stuff works. I am using it on and off for years. I sprinkled it under our new kitchen cabinets before installation as well as under the mattress and use it internally and on the dog bed and all over the yard for years! My dog did not catch fleas this year without us using any other treatment and he is outside except at night.

DE! Where have you been all of my life?!! I originally bought DE as a flea powder for my pets and home. I became reluctant to use chemicals on my pets and in my home when I heard my son's cat had died. He took his beloved Tito to the Vet for his "necessary annual shots and flea/tic meds". Tito was an indoor pet. Never outside. Why did he "need" all those drugs? Needless to say, my son, being a good pet owner, took Tito in. Within an hour Tito began to convulse, collapsed and died. My son was heartbroken! This will never happen in my household ever again! My pets are now chemical free and so is my home. I also began taking DE my self and have had good results! Since Aug 13, 2011, I have dropped 6-7 lbs. My bloodpressure has dropped from 140/90 to 120/75! I have more energy and I don't have the usual 2pm droopiness that used to plague me every afternoon. I have been sneaking it into my husbands morning coffee. ;) He is on all kinds of bloodpressure meds and cholesterol drugs, so I am hoping his next appointment will have better numbers! I will keep you posted on his results! I had very good luck with DE as a flea control product. I sprinkled it all over my carpets and rubbed it into my pets fur (3 cats, one rat terrier) It took several weeks, but the flea population finally came to a halt, one or two fleas on the pets as of today, but I will get them! Pets are much happier, no digging or itching or bald spots as before. Their fur is growing back. DE is amazing stuff! Teresa

I just started taking it about 3-4 wks ago. So far, not a negative side effect, not a one! I was pretty toxic inside (from YEARS of unhealthy/pure junk food and grease eating). I have bad skin because of it-prematurely (at 26 I started getting wrinkles). I know that no visible imrovements should be seen right away, but I believe that afer a few mos. of being on it, things will start to change (someone else had a similar story and it changed her skin). Supposedly that much silica can even get rid of sun damage. We'll see, but overall, everything is great!

I've been taking this for a couple of weeks now. Already I am stunned at how my nails have grown stronger. I do have a question, tho. I'm trying to keep my body very alkaline. A pH strip dipped into a small glass of DE showed it not to be at all alkaline. Now I wonder if I am drinking a glass of something acidic each day & if that is a good thing..

Kris
October 5, 2011 at 1:22 am
Don't worry, most likey the byproducts of food grade Diatomaceous Earth after the body has modified it are alkaline. Citrus fruits, especially lemons, are among the most acidic foods that we eat. However, after the body has digested them, the by products are net alkaline. Thus, citrus fruits are actually considered alkaline foods.I've been on DE for almost a month now and feel great! Keep up the good health!

If this material is so hard it cuts up bugs and tapeworms, how does it not cut up the interior of the human intestine?

Kris
October 5, 2011 at 1:18 am

It doesn't harm the human digestive tract because the DE particles are microscopic. Our intestines are soft and plush and protected by a mucous layer, so the DE just scrubs them clean. Also, it doesn't cut up bugs. The DE particles scratch the exoskeletons of the bugs, causing them to dehydrate and die. It DOES cut up bacteria and other very small parasites in the digestive tract.

Hi. I started taking DE at 1 tbs/day a few days ago and am now taking 2 tbs/day (at once w/ water). I have not experienced ANY negative or die off symptoms. Has anyone else experienced that? Recently, I started drinking 1 to 2 smoothies/day (1 of them green) and then eat a normal meal with my family. I thought with this amount I should feel something.? Also, I am wondering if anyone taking DE is also taking Virgin Coconut Oil? If so, do you take it together or at separate times of the day? I have been taking mine in the morning (7:00) and the DE at night (8:00). I know it's early in the process (only a few days), but I want to make sure that I'm doing things right. Any advice would be appreciated.

Cindy, RN
October 12, 2011 at 6:01 am

I see no reason to take the DE away from your Coconut Oil. Food grade Diatomaceous Earth does give some people energy so that's why it's recommended to take in the morning. If you are an avid coconut oil user, the reason you may have no signs of die off (Herxheimer Reaction) is because Coconut Oil is also a bad bacteria killer on a lesser level. Maybe you no longer have a large amount of bad bacteria to kill off..... The reaction, if you do get one is flu like symptoms of feeling like a truck ran over you, headache, diarrhea, body aches and chills. but passes quickly, usually in a couple hours. you'll think you're getting sick, but really it's just the bad bacteria dying all at once and their toxins being released into the system all at once. Can come out as zits also....

  1. I consumed my first tsp minutes ago and don't feel anything yet! What's Up! ;^)

    Posted by Jim C, San Diego on 21st Apr 2014

    Really?! Just kidding. After placing the order, I could hardly withstand the anticipation of its arrival. I'm cautiously optimistic of what is to ensue in the coming days/weeks/months after reading the many reviews from this site and elsewhere on the web.
    The product is a 5-star at the moment only because it arrived in a timely fashion, packaged well, and the friendly offers & messages enclosed. Other than having my first tsp and not keeling over with my eyes bulging from their sockets (that's worth a 5-star I guess!), I have nothing to rate regarding product experiences. Rest assured, though, I shall.

  6. Good stuff!

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Mar 2014

    Been taking this for 4 weeks. Noticed a difference on the 4th day. Joint pain was less and increased energy. Was diangnosed with fibromyalgia years ago. Pain was a normal for me. Pain meds didnt help. Always had problems with digestion since I had gall bladder removed. This has improved so much. Feel better, no stomach pain, My skin is starting to have a healthy glow. Hair is shinny too. If you are in pain, what do you have to lose. I was skeptical at first but am a believer! ( in all ways) :)


  7. Very satisfied

    Posted by Denise on 14th Mar 2014

    Very pleased with the quick delivery and the Diatomaceous Earth. It took a while for my system to get used to it, even though I started out very slowly. Seems like it gave me so much energy I couldn't sleep at night. After a couple of weeks it stopped and now I sleep just fine. My hair is thicker and my nails are stronger. My blood pressure is better also.

    This is very easy to start using. It dissolves quickly and leaves no after taste. I think the price is great as is the service at More than Alive!

  12. Thanks

    Thank you for the great price and excellent service morethanalive.
    I read all these reviews and am glad for all those with lower blood pressure, lower weight, less age spots in a day???? Really?
    The only symptom known to me at this time after ingesting a table spoon a day for about 3 weeks, is a problem I was having with a tooth at the gum line. The bacteria is defiantly gone!!!!
    I'm sure DE is doing wonderful things silently in my system but I see nothing yet! Weight problem the same, pain in my lower back the same, I'm looking forward to being able to boast as others have!


  13. DE Daily

    Posted by amy j on 5th Feb 2014

    My favoriet way to drink DE first thing in the morning is in a mix of squeezed lemon or lime I make beforehand. I pour the juice of either in an empty wine bottle with a screw cap, fill with pure spring water, and add a little stevia to sweeten. I take my TBS of DE and then pour this over it, and mix in a spirulina and stir...love it!


  14. Thank the Lord and you for the product.

    Posted by Doris Hunter on 3rd Feb 2014

    I have tried many supplements for parasites and nothing worked before DE. I had arrived at my "wits end". Going to medical doctors for parasites is a waste of time. Again, I say, "Thank the Lord for directing me to you."


  15. very good product

    Posted by dick betts on 29th Jan 2014

    This stuff works. Don't know how,don't know why but it works. Great cleaner for your intestines suppresses appetite boosts energy. What more could you ask. Lower price maybe ? Going to go to two spoons a day. Works great in my morning V8 juice.

    Scrubs your intestines clean. Kills Candida! My nails are strong & growing. Skin is clearing. It just changes your entire body, from the inside out! I am so grateful to Holy Spirit for leading and guiding me to this site! I also ordered the Barley Grass, Dead Sea Salts, Act Charcoal & Bentonite Clay... I pray you will always carry such wonderful natural products for God's people to use to "cure disease" Luke 9:1. Jesus is Lord & Savior of all, receive Him and watch your life change! Pray for Israel.


  17. Would it be OK to up the dosage a bit?

    Posted by Ray on 9th Jan 2014

    I started off taking 1 tablespoon a day and am now taking 2 tablespoons... Getting some results, but I guess it can take some time with so much accumulated gunk in the system as it were. I mean I'm 270 pounds and (among other things) would like to lose some more weight. Given my size I was thinking it might be OK to take a bit more and was hoping to get some advice on that. Thanks!


  18. A response to the previous comment...

    Posted by Ali on 6th Jan 2014

    Marlo: That would be great if you could get off those pharma-meds, albeit slowly, ...DE should really help with arthritic pain! My hubby & I have been taking DE for quite a while now and have had really great results, especially with the plumbing (you want to scrape out the intestines and start anew)... as long as plenty of water is taken, drinking it all day long is good, you should start to feel much better. I also have my dog on it and he has overcome chronic pancreatitis...and has the most beautiful coat and lots of energy (he's a 10 yr old bichon). Good luck!


  19. I have fibromyalgia and take Rx meds.

    Posted by Marlo on 5th Jan 2014

    I have only been taking for 4 days. I already feel over medicated and have lowered my dosage. Planning on stopping completely. fingers crossed. p.s. don't forget to drink lots of water while taking this.


  20. Great product

    Posted by Robin on 3rd Jan 2014

    My hair is healthier thicker longer and my nails are stronger.
    Great product!!! Thanks


  21. Finally Healthy hair!

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Dec 2013

    A friend reccommended this product to me to help my hair grow. I have been trying to grow out my hair for years and nothing would help. Until I tried Diatomaceous Earth. I finally have long healthy hair!!!


  22. Excellent product!

    Posted by Duck Dynasty fan - Central Iowa on 28th Dec 2013

    I take this


  23. Good bacteria are always negatively charged.

    Posted by Cathy on 27th Dec 2013

    Good-for-us bacteria, nutrients, enzymes are negatively charged so DE does not harm or remove those. Bad-for-us organisms, toxins and chemicals are all positively charged, so DE removes those.


  24. Just started feeling GREAT!!

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Dec 2013

    My husband and I just started using DE and we feel great! It dissolves easily in water or juice. Our dog is old too and I am going to state giving it to her!!


  25. I am producing more milk

    Posted by Nicole on 19th Dec 2013

    I am using food grade Diatomaceous Earth while nursing, and my baby is fine. His red cheeks are smoother, and the best part is I feel great... so I can be a better mommy! :)


  26. This Stuff Really Works

    Posted by Diane on 7th Dec 2013

    I have been using DE for almost 2 years. My colon thanks me and I feel more energy and am healthier. I have also used it to kill fleas on my cat and that absolutely works. I will continue to use this product.


  27. I finally found where to buy diatomaceous earth...

    Posted by Ali on 19th Nov 2013

    I have been using this for a few weeks now and I feel great... Lots of energy and I love the feel of my skin...it's the silica in the DE.

    A great way to get more silica throughout the day... I fill up a cup of water and add 2 Tbsp of DE, let it settle to the bottom, then occasionally sip the cloudy liquid above the settled stuff.


  28. I found a new use

    Posted by karen O on 13th Nov 2013

    I've been drinking a tablespoon a day of this for a couple of months now and I'm hoping to have some improvement in my hands and wrists from carpal tunnel syndrome. It dissolves easily in water and I have nothing bad to say about it. After reading about its use for fleas, I decided to try it on my daughter's head when she got head lice. I covered her face to protect her lungs and then dusted her whole head with the DE. I then covered her head in a shower cap for overnight and we brushed her hair daily without washing it for about a week. On saturday night we washed her hair and then after second service on Sunday we repeated for another week. I also dusted her pillow. After fighting with lice for weeks on end, they finally left for good and I believe it has to do with using the DE.


  29. Natural supplement

    Posted by Ann on 11th Nov 2013

    Reading through all the other reviews I must agree with most of the postings, and then some. We have used the DE for natural remedy to problems (like ant hills outside), our animals are flea free in one of the worst years ever for fleas. We take DE in our morning smoothie and enjoy great health. I am going to try using as a tooth powder as well.

    I initially bought it as a detox to help deal with rosacea, and with a lot of time and prayers, it has helped tremendously.


  30. I can't say enough good things about DE

    Posted by Alison on 10th Nov 2013

    I started using DE for over a month now (just started my hubby on it too, also sneak it into smoothies for my kids). At first, I had headaches for a week (possibly die-off symptoms from the detox).

    My hair & nails are stronger, my skin is less dry, my complexion looks great except I still get the odd breakout, and my energy level is way up (be sure to take it in the morning because of this).

    And for my little dog, he brought in fleas and were biting me bad so sprinkled DE onto all areas in my house, and got rid of them all. I have been putting a teaspoonful into his dog food, and he has the most beautiful coat. ...we are definitely onto a good thing here!


  31. Amazing results

    Posted by Ken W on 4th Nov 2013

    Just taking a teaspoon a day after two weeks my blood pressure is dropping nicely. It went from being in the 140 range to now in the 120 range. The taste is not bad at all. Never had the detox symptoms as others wrote about. My diet is very good and I exercise on a daily basis.


  32. Thanks.

    Posted by Rita Faye on 2nd Nov 2013

    I have been reading about Diatomaceous Earth and its benefits. I can tell you it has helped me greatly.

    Due to a stroke I was bed-fast. Having Lupus and Lymphadema also made my skin very tender and easily damaged. Wound Care at the hospital worked 4 months and still there was no great show of improvement.

    I ordered my Diatomaceous Earth, I used it dry on most of my skin, but on the really bad places I mixed it with water to form a paste. 3 days and you can really see the improvement! Even the staff at the wound center were amazed.


  33. a miracle

    Posted by tisha on 28th Oct 2013

    In 2011 i was sexaully violated. On september of 2012 i was dignose with gential herpes. I never took the medication that was perscribed to me. Instead i went hollistically. I was introduce to de by a friend mines. While taking silver biotics first which truly helped me i was also taking de after that. Its been a little over a year since my first outbreak. I belive that i am.cured. unfortunatlly i am unable to.see if its truly gone because in order to check for herpes i have to have an outbreak. I tell myself i am cured because being a woman who was diganosed with herpes we are told we have reoccuring outbresks at least 6 to 10 times yearly, and i have had none. This is gods gift even silver is a gift from god.


  34. Can't live without it...

    Posted by Joshua on 26th Oct 2013

    I love DE! I put it in my smoothies everyday. It's great for keeping you cleaned out!


  35. There is so much good about DE

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Oct 2013

    I love this product. I first used it to make my toothpaste, then I learned that it is good for other things, lowering high blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, help with joint pain, get rid of parasites and worms... it goes on and on. I take it everyday. I have noticed the difference in my ability to walk up and downstairs without joint pain... amazing... I have a zip in my step again... I feel so good.


  36. Food?

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Oct 2013

    My wife says it is good


  37. Just starting out

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Oct 2013

    My dad has been taking DE for some time now and he recommended it to me. We have a lot of the same bowel issues. It works great for him. I'm hoping for the same.


  38. I am a beginner

    Posted by AC on 17th Oct 2013

    Received my DE a few days ago so it is way too early to see any results although I am waiting with anticipation to see what happens. I am giving my Boston Terrier and myself one teaspoon a day. Thank you for such rapid delivery service, it was here within a day or two.


  39. DE kills tape worms...

    Posted by JB on 16th Oct 2013

    Which are very difficult to eliminate because the "head" usually will not die but keeps breaking off segments. Used DE for a 14 year old Husky-Shepherd too fragile for poisons and the DE worked much better and quicker than any wormer I had ever used. The tapeworms were expelled dead. Worked on the cat too who keeps the rodent population in check and acquires worms in the process.


  40. Good shi#!

    Posted by Mary Joe on 16th Oct 2013

    Heard about this product through sis-in-law. Husband and myself both take it daily. I have to take less than him because I have a more sensitive system so if you're new to this start by teaspoon and don't forget to drink a full glass of h2o afterward. Have defiantly noticed change for the better. Joints used to hurt daily due to arthritis. Now I can handle it without Rx's. Been on the dirt for a month and also noticed improvement in skin! That's a plus because my main reason for taking it was for arthritis. I even quit taking my glucosamine! Another plus is i rarely feel bloated and uncomfortable. This stuff just makes you feel lighter!!

    I also give 1/2 tsp mixed with dog food to my Pomeranians. One of them has joint issues and the other digestive issues. The digestive issues have come to a halt for the Pom with the issue. Hoping it works on other Pom for joints but she's much older so I can only hope. Thanks for the dirt.


  41. Acid reflux and IBS

    Posted by Vivian on 16th Oct 2013

    I have several customers who take DE to keep acid reflux away. Also, I used to suffer from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Since I started taking DE, I have not had any problems with IBS. I used to get sick all the time, but since I started taking DE regularly, 2 years ago, I have not been sick...not even a cold!


  42. I bought for mineral tooth powder

    Posted by Michelle on 16th Oct 2013

    It is great in my mineral tooth powder! I gave a dose to my husband who was not feeling well at the time and he probably suffered a bit of the detox symptoms that a lot of folks had from too much at first. I will get him on smaller regular dose though. :)


  43. Hip pains gone!!

    Posted by LindaT. on 15th Oct 2013

    I received my order, quickly gave some to my little terrier, took a teaspoon myself. Less than a week later we are both now without hip pain. I gave a pound to my senior aged mother, she is also happily walking with less joint discomfort. An incredible, natural product. Thank you for a fast delivery!


  44. I am thrilled!

    Posted by Wendy on 15th Oct 2013

    Six years ago I was given Satin drugs for high cholesterol, I had a severe reaction to them that has taken years to get over, I have battled the cholesterol since. This January it was once again very high, total cholesterol was 324, triglycerides 616. I decided to give the Diatomaceous Earth a try. I just had my levels checked again this week and after only 10 weeks my total cholesterol had dropped 91 points to 233 and my triglycerides dropped 370 points to 246. I finally have hope of getting this under control without prescription drugs.


  45. Results of DE

    Posted by Sue-WY on 14th Oct 2013

    I have been using the product as well as my sister too. It has helped with arthritis & a few more other things still taking to see what else it can help with. My sister has gotten a new growth of hair from the DE and she is excited. My dog gets it on her food in the morning & seems to be working on her coat. Thanks will be ordering again soon!


  46. Amazing!!

    Posted by J on 14th Oct 2013

    My daughter recently contracted pinworms..yuck!!..from daycare. I gave her the meds and they worked,however two weeks later they were back. I researched natural remedies and discovered D.E. I ordered 10lbs. and informed my Husband and my Children that we would be taking a spoonful of "special dirt" daily from now on. Hubby read this article and was excited to start. It's been 3 weeks now and no more nasty worms. We all feel great and I've even lost 7 lbs. so far. The pets are taking it too!


  47. Great for hair growth

    Posted by Robin on 14th Oct 2013

    Awesome product... My hair is growing like mad ... Love it. Skin clearing up too. Drink loads of water makes you really thirsty. (;


  48. thank you very much!

    Posted by Jade on 13th Oct 2013

    hi I wanted to say thanks for the timely shipping for my DE. so far, I have noticed that I have been sleeping much better than I used to.. and I definitely contribute that to DE. as for anything else, it may be too soon to tell and I also want to try increasing my dosage a little to see if it makes even more of a difference. Once again, thank you very much for a wonderful product and I will definitely be buying again in the future.


  49. This stuff works!

    Posted by Anonymos coward on 13th Oct 2013

    I purchased this and started to use it as a detox. And it works great! I take charcoal about an hour after DE so that the charcoal takes away the waste that the DE is scraping away.


  50. Really impressed.

    Posted by Paula Isaacson on 13th Oct 2013

    I am very impressed so far. I printed the article and gave it to several friends. Hopefully, they will wise up and start using it also. My husband read the article and decided to start using it as well. Next order, he can pay for it. I am now on my second bag and enjoying the benefits. I can especially tell a difference in my hair. It is much shinier and easier to manage.


  51. GETTING RID OF ANY BUG W/O CHEMICALS!

    Posted by JEANNIE on 11th Oct 2013

    HEY EVERYONE...forget the chemicals!...we use diatomaceous earth!...Instant kill within minutes on bugs,flies,cockroaches of all types and harmless to humans and animals....do your research!....this is probably the BEST thing we have found...it is also a cure for a lot of human ills too....also just great with cat litter...NO ODOR!....unbelievable odor control.... cheap too for the uses it has.....check it out folks!


  52. mule and DE

    Posted by Judester on 10th Oct 2013

    I am thinking of giving my mule DE however I'm concerned as she was diagnosed with a partial blockage in her lower intestine and it is also very inflamed. I couldn't afford the very expensive surgery to open her up and find out what is going on so she is on steroids for 2 months to take the swelling down and will have another ultrasound to check it and then I will make decision at that time on what to do. I would like to try the DE as it could be cancer, a tumor, scar tissue, or something she has swallowed or who knows what. but am concerned with the inflamed intestines and the DE causing more damage or making it worse. Has anyone had any experience with anything like this?

    Also I've had her just over a year and every 6 to 8 weeks she would go off feed and water for a few days + and stand funny and grind her teeth.. now we understand she was blocked and hurting. This last time she coliced and I called the vet out then ended up at the university (MSU). Any suggestions and dosage? Also I had read where it has been suggested to feed the DE in water but my mule will not drink/eat wet feed/hay. I don't even know if she would eat it on/mixed into her feed. She is very picky. Getting her to drink enough may be hard too. I am salting her feed as per the vets (4 vets) orders but she will leave it if there is to much salt on it according to her taste.

    Thank you very much.


  53. Making a difference

    Posted by Grammy18 on 10th Oct 2013

    Ive been taking DE for about 2 yrs now. I put a Tbsp in a pudding cup or drink it in apple juice once everyday. It helps my rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, fibromyalgia, and how I feel overall. If I forget to use the DE I can tell after 2 doses. I begin to feel really achy and then I usually realize I have forgotten to take it. i have recommended this to many people who say they have had nothing but positive results


  54. Good for people and dogs

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Oct 2013

    We use it, and our dogs take it too! A safe and easy alternative for parasite prevention or eradication.


  55. gastritis

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Oct 2013

    Been a user for over two years. Recently due to stress I was diagnosed with sever acute gastritis. I m taking meds to rebuild the stomach mucus wall. I m concerned that the DE will inhibit the mucus replacement .. any thoughts ???


  56. great price

    Posted by Dar on 28th Sep 2013

    Just started taking DE and hoping it helps with my cholesterol levels.


  57. Best for warding off viruses and to build back immuse system

    Posted by John Eustor on 23rd Sep 2013

    I have been taking DE everyday for over 2 years now and have not gotten sick even once. Not a cold, flu, virus, cough...nothing. No more flu shots for me.

    Feels like my insides are being cleansed every day. Highly recommend for proper immune system functioning and and overall feeling of well being.

    Thank you!! Namaste


  58. Just started

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Sep 2013

    I have not noticed much change yet, but have only been taking it for a couple of days. Does anybody know how long it takes to see results?


  59. Because its good for you!

    Posted by gloria T on 12th Sep 2013

    I have taken DE for 10yrs after reading studies of the effect of Silica on racehorses. Sounds crazy but the effects of Silica on bones and joints has been well documented. Having the start of RA I figured try it. At 70 I am energetic, have less pain that can be controled with a couple over the counter pills and not the heavy drugs I was on. My nails/hair great, and chloestrol numbers improved.
    I have started many on my 'dirt' regime when asked what I take to look so young. More is not the answer, 1-T in a small glass of water in the morning gives you energy and is all needed. Drinking alot of water is necessary. It is taking every morning that counts. This is my opinion as a regular user. P.S. I give a pinch of it to my dogs, parrot and horses. Helps keep the weight down too. I am 70 and Fabulous!!!


  60. A Miracle Drink/Supplement!

    Posted by Ora Love on 8th Sep 2013

    I have been using Dirt since 3-18-2013. And I will never ever be without it.
    At 72 years old my physical life is lining up with my Spiritual life. God proven His word in my life once again. 3 John v. 2 Thank you Jesus.

    I have a question about sinusitis.
    Does anyone have a remedy/solution for sinusitis?


  61. Quality Product

    Posted by Karen on 17th Jul 2013

    I am so glad I was informed of DE. This is a high quality product and I can tell a difference in the many things it is recommended for since I have been using it. And the shipping is SO FAST.


  62. Hoping for good things!

    Posted by Georgiajammy on 13th Jun 2013

    I have h.pylori and am hoping this will help me get rid of it. I have been on the triple treatment twice. The taste of DE is not bad at all. I stir a tablespoon into water or juice and drink it down.


  63. It is amazing.

    Posted by Kel on 13th Jun 2013

    I have been so ill for over 3 years and the doctors could not figure out why... other than giving me the Fibromyalgia label. I have had repeated infections, chronic fatigue, and waves of joint pain. Its all over. I have tried so many things. I am recommending D.E. to everyone!


  64. LIFE CHANGING!!

    Posted by snow on 5th May 2013

    this is my best thing I ever brought I will keep buying everyone of us are needed to keep us good health.


  66. Where have you been all my Life??

    Posted by Freddie Kinkton on 28th Apr 2013

    I've been using DE for my pets diets and in my yard to keep it bug free{chiggers, ticks and fleas etc.}. I finally found a DE product that is white as snow and fit for Human Consumption with More Than Alive! I've been searching for a way to take better care of my digestive system. I considered many of the various options but none of them felt right and they were expensive to! DE is like some kind of magic powder and so few people know about it, I tell my friends and their like "Oh!". People can be so close minded when it comes to things that they don't hear about on T.V or if they don't notice a well advertised brand attached to it! I've been noticing subtle changes in my life: I'm thinking more clearly and I feel like a kid again because all I wanna do is go outside and {play} like ride my mountain bike and work on projects that I've put off for far too long! I'm drinking loads of water now and I look for forward to it all day long because I know that with DE, the rewards are endless and hydration is the key to unlocking DE's supernatural capabilities!


  67. Great product

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Apr 2013

    Great product, speedy delivery


  68. Product has exeeded expectations

    Posted by Robin on 12th Apr 2013

  69. I love it and use it every day.

    Posted by Feawguita on 8th Apr 2013

    I've been drinking D E every day and my knee pain is gone. I've seen improvement on my skin, nails, and hair. I have also started giving it to my pets and I use it for our ant problems inside the house. We have also started to brush our teeth with it and we've noticed how much cleaner our mouth looks and feels. I am so glad to have found D E and I will never stop using it. Thanks :)
