I'm interesting in hearing your thoughts on the use (and safety) of using this stuff. Friends have recommended starting off with dissolving a teaspoon in juice each day, working up to around a tablespoon per day after a week or two.
If you've used it, what were your results? Do you believe it has any benefits at all or is all of it "junk science"?

Diatomaceous Earth (DE)

Go look at earthworkshealth.com -- they seem to think this cures just about everything! We have always used it for bugs in the house but until I read this series of messages I had never heard about the food grade product. I read that web site and also some fairly fantastic sounding reviews on Amazon of this and similar brands. Must say, being an old hippie, this is beginning to interest me but I am a little worried since there are no scientific studies on it (nor would there be since no one can patent it). But quite interesting and I will keep poking around and see what I can find.

Much of the "cures" are probably quackery, however DE is used quite a bit to control internal parasites in farm animals. It does do that job quite well, and it's considered a normal application in farming communities.
So, if you have internal worms or parasites, it might be of use, at least for that.
