Anyone take it? Looking for reliable reviews. I think I'm going to order some. If I do, I will post my own review here.

People eat it? I thought it was a carcinogen.

I uh, use it to kill bugs. It's a supplement now? What benefit is it supposed to have? I know it's non-toxic, but it's an abrasive product so I have trouble considering ingesting it o_o

I used it as a dewormer/general "sprinkle it in his food" stuff when merlin was small.
Heard it works for people too and it's a much gentler dewormer because it just naturally kills them

I tried it for myself just because I read it online lol no adverse effects at all

Yes, they have a Food Grade version and it is a supplement that is supposed to be good for a lot of things. I am really interested in it, as I recently started using essensial oils and I believe I am allergic or somehow sensitive to them. I started ingesting them, and have had daily headaches and frequent migraines since I started taking them. Then a friend told me about DE and I'm interested.

I know they have food grade DE, but I've never actually known why. I'll be interested in your expierence.

But yeah, the only thing I've known that it's good for is anti-parasitic bc of the abrasive characteristics.

If you're getting poor reactions, stop taking the oils. There are compounds in essential oils that can make you really sick. If you have a sensitivity, it's not worth the risk.

What benefit do you hope to gain from taking DE?

Yeah, I've stopped taking them.

Honestly I have so many problems lol. A few things I hope the DE will help me with are immune health (I suffer from chronic sinus infections), high blood pressure, and bone and joint pain. I also suffer from constant headaches and frequent migraines and I'm hoping maybe it will help with that as well. I also read it can help with weight loss, which would be awesome, but that's not why I'm wanting to try it.

Also wanting to try key biotics.

I honestly don't see why abrasive fossilized sea creatures would help with any of the issues you describe. Parasites? Yes. Things outside the digestive tract? Nope.

Probiotics are awesome, but again, benefits outside of the digestive tract seem like they would be less likely.

Have you talked to a doctor? Did they take you seriously? If not, find one who will!

I know it's probably not the case for most people, but I was having extremely frequent migraines (not headaches; full migraines, with visual symptoms and nausea) and no other symptoms. I had a root canal done (because a technition noticed a teeny shadow on an x-ray) and since then have had zero migraines. It's been months--I was having 1-2 a week for years.

My doctors all said that migraines 'just happen,' and I didn't think to mention to my dentist that I was having migraines. If you haven't had a dental x-ray in a while, it might be worth checking out. It's been like magic; I can't believe it. My dentist said that migraines are a very common symptom of tooth and jaw problems.

It's a long shot, but I'm seriously blown away.
