It's really just about absorption and bio-availability.
The D.E. I take is fine milled food grade,....I used to drink it in water,...but now I encapsulate it. I take (5) 00 pills three times a day. (5) 00's is said to be one gram. So I take 1 gram three times a day on an empty stomach. I do that one hour before every CE! I also take, at the same time, 3 garlic capsules, 3 cayenne peppers, and 3 cloves,...all on 00 sized capsules. I have also recently added Pau D'Arco.
Then,...at that same hour before CE,...I start using my zapper too, to kill as many before the BIG Coffee-Enema flush! I wear the $35 CTBusters.com zapper for 7 minutes, then take it off for 20,...then back on for a full seven again, then back off for 10-15, use it a third time for 7, then head into do the CE.
I take the zapper in with me,....and at sitting time, I place it all over my kidneys, spleen, liver, bowels, all over. It causes them to loose their grip, suction,...and you hear a big gurgle,...then you feel them sliding down the 35 feet of intestines and out the door to be flushed forever! The end! :-)
Be blessed my friend,...you can get out of the bedridden state!
