Thinking of trying diatomaceous earth for any one of the many health benifites? I did, and now I have been taking it internally. *After much research. Most people say diatomaceous earth should be taken on an empty stomach. I figured they meant first thing in the morning, then wait 30 minutes to eat or two to three hours after eating.
When I take DE, I start with one teaspoon in a tall glass of water (8 oz.) and worked my way up to one tablespoon over the course of a week. Like all of the supplements I take, I schedule breaks from DE so that my body doesn’t get overwhelmed. In the case of DE, I prefer to use it for about a month continuously, then I take 1-2 teaspoons once or twice a week after that.
