Diatomaceous Earth it is natural and beneficial for man and beast. MUST BE FOOD GRADE . Purchase at a local farm supply store. 50# for about $25 bucks. This is nothing but minerals all of them and it is totally natural. It is the silica that works miracles it kills insects but is harmless to pets and humans. I take this daily 2 heaping tab. in warm water and add 1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper; follow it with a pint of water. Wait 45 minutes to one hour before eating to allow it to work thru your system. Cayenne natural healer and the minerals contained in the Diatomaceous Earth we all need especially the silica.
I began taking it for edema (fluid retention) feet and legs swollen. I was faithful daily and in about 4 months I began to notice the swelling in my feet and legs were much LESS. After being on it for 14 months the problems is gone as are several others!
