Diatomaceous earth supports the body in many ways providing amazing health benefits. Adding diatomaceous earth into a daily health regiment with a few drops of lemon, orange and grapefruit essential oils will do wonders for the body and mind. Diatomaceous earth is over 30 million years old and comes from a plant that resembles modern algae. The clay like chalky remains are mind from the earth and made into a powder the human body can ingest.
Here are a few of the amazing benefits of adding a teaspoon of diatomaceous earth in water with essential oils to your diet daily.
Silica: diatomaceous earth is about 85% silica and the body needs silica to stay healthy. Every organ in the body is supported with natural silica. The problem with modern farming is natural silica has been depleted from the soil so a supplement is needed.
Skin: the largest organ on the body is the skin. The skin is made up of collagen and diatomaceous earth supports the skin supplying a natural source of calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron, and other minerals. Healthy skin slows the aging process and helps the body to look younger and stronger.
Bug Zapper: the consistency of diatomaceous earth is very hostile to pests that like to build up in the human body. Using diatomaceous earth on a daily with essential oils will help the body to flush out any unwanted pest that might be trying to take up residence in the intestinal track.
Cleansing: diatomaceous earth is high in antioxidants. Antioxidants help to cleanse the whole body and keep the body young and strong. A diet that is high in antioxidants will help to keep the immune system strong and reduce any inflammation from outside sources like radiation.
Add a few drops of essential oils to the diatomaceous earth. The oils I add are Young Living Lemon, Orange, and Grapefruit essential oils. Each of these oils is very high in d-limonene further helping the body’s immune system to stay strong. A strong immune system will keep every system in the body functioning properly and slow the aging process.
