"Frankly, I'm getting desperately sick of these "back to the drawing board" moments in my healing journey - nothing seems to work for me!"
I know how you feel BBQ....that's how it is with the DE..I find something that I can tell a difference with and then am left wondering if I'm slowly poisoning myself instead! Ughhh...
I would wait a couple days and then take a small dosage of DE and see if that produces the same effect. And you could be right that the DE could be working on any cholesterol/blockage issue..just take it nice and slow.
I've seen where you can buy pure silica in capsule form, I may try that if I don't figure this DE thing out. I also like that the DE would get rid of intestinal parasites, if I have any.
Please keep us updated on your usage of DE...and on whatever else may help your AF.
Is the aluminum content in DE enough to be detrimental to our health? I personally love the way I feel when I take it, but could I be doing any long lasting damage from the aluminum content? I've tried to look this up online but I haven't found one website clarifying this subject.
I have a post discussing this here:
Does anyone else here take DE on a regular basis? Any side effects or problems noted?
I have been putting DE in my water for many years. It has been very beneficial.
Any idea why it's causing this hypertension and heart pain for me please?
Not based on such limited information. There are a number of things that can cause hypertension. I cover them here:
Good info Hver. Thanks! I got to thinking that there is so much toxicity that we ingest unknowlingly every day, so the aluminum content probably is nothing compared to what we unknowlingly ingest. Plus, the properties of silica looks like it protects us from absorbing toxins, correct?
Silica will bind aluminum and help remove lead from the body. Fibers though, which are another source of silica can bind with other toxins helping to expel them from the body.
