Diatomaceous Earth. Proudly 100% Australian.
Seen all the hoo-ha about the ground-breaking amazing ‘Heal Your Gut’ powder that was featured on Shark Tank recently? It’s truly amazing stuff and guess what? The active ingredient, no, the ONLY ingredient is humble diatomaceous earth. My own mother has been using it and telling anybody who will listen about it for years! Now that it’s been marketed to the public right (and thank heavens for that as more people will benefit from it), it’s the new ‘in’ thing in the health world. My good ol’ mum has been buying it in bulk for a long time and she knows some people, so you can score the same diatomaceous earth right here with us for an absolute fraction of the market price. You can thank her later.
Gut Health Powder is a very simple and natural way to improve waste removal that encourages clean, efficient intestines, which can lead to better digestion and nutrient absorption. It contains organic, marine diatomaceous earth from freshwater sources, which has been simply treated with UV to obtain a pure product. It helps to clean out the accumulated build-up of waste, mucous, toxins, and metals in the digestive tract. Most of us have at some time eaten the S.A.D. diet—the Standard Australian Diet—which usually results in poor digestion and lack of nutrient absorption. This is because processed foods create a lack of intestinal health where waste products such as plaque, acids, mucus, fungus and bacteria build up over time. A bloated gut with wind and gas is a good indication there are gut problems.
One of Australia's leading authorities on gut health—Kirsty Wirth of Kultured Wellness—recommends diatomaceous earth as part of a gut healing regime, and suggests taking it separately from food. Add diatomaceous earth to your diet to detox parasites that can contribute to food intolerance, nausea, bowel discomfort, pain, itching, asthma, sinus infections, Morgellon's disease, and a host of other allergic-type reactions. In addition to detoxing and destroying pathogens, diatomaceous earth helps to lower blood pressure and contributes to the production of collagen to improve skin tone, strengthening the tendons and joints.
Directions: Take about one teaspoon of diatomaceous earth with water once a day. It’s best used on an empty stomach at least one hour before or two hours after eating.
Drink an additional cup of water after each dose of diatomaceous earth to improve its effects. In general, make sure to consume plenty of water with diatomaceous earth and stay hydrated.
It is best to drink on an empty stomach as the earth can clean the stomach and colon more effectively when they are empty. Also, it's best NOT to mix the powder into a smoothie as diatomaceous earth can absorb some of the nutrients and minerals.
