Thanks for verbalizing what I was thinking about Mike's comments. Why have we taken to being so unkind to one another? It really irks me. And I believe the comment made by Bonnie that most people are Vitamin D and magnesium deficient. So her advice was helpful. True, I believe we all need to heal ourselves by eating God's bounty and staying away from processed and fast food. Natural, organic, grain fed, free range, cage free, wild caught, locally grown food is the best healer there is. Eat well, feel well, live well. Heal from the inside out.

Britter nails? You mean, brittle nails?

I think Mike was just trying to promote that website that he gave a link to. If I did buy some diatomaceous earth, I definitely would not buy it from the site he listed! Try being nicer dude!

I am going to focus on the high silica foods in my diet to see if I notice a difference (being a way to detox aluminum).

One of my favorite new ways to detox is to eat an entire plate of roasted hot chiles covered in yogurt and seasoned with soy sauce and garlic powder. The chiles are a good heavy metal detox and the yogurt makes it go much easier on the stomach. This kills parasites too. You also get a real good buzz of endorphins from this. It's kind of like a hot chile dip, and you can eat it with bread or tortilla chips, but I actually eat it as is

If you have magnesium deficiency then you are not eating your vegetables. It is impossible for plants to grow without magnesium, its the essential element in chlorophyll , every vegetable with green color is rich in magnesium.

Wonder why everyone under age 30 eating all kinds of fast food rot out, no veggies, hardly any fruits yet has gorgeous skin, hair nails and never thought about nutrition yet all the sudden after 30...hair loss, skin sag, dry skin, dry hair, brittle nails, joint pains, etc..hmmm. So all the sudden we're not getting enough of this, that and the other thing? I don't think so. They're all still there in the foods, the nutrients eg. if a veggie grew in the earth then it has silicon, sand is silica is silicon dioxide. We've stop absorbing them easily, that's what is happening. A clogged cellular condition?...yet we try to push ever greater quantities of nutrients into our system as a response? We need some enlightenment i think..(hint: no money to be made in distilled water fasting..hehe). Yes there is a deficiency condition slowly developing but not because the food is deficient but the body seems to have stopped absorbing, even dysfunctioning at the cellular level.
CHeers ! !

Insightful and interesting, please cite sources or references I'd like to look into this...

July 13, 2017


NO references or double blind or peer reviewed jazz. SorrY.
BUT..Loren Lockman down in Costa Rica (check him in You TUbe) is oneof a few guys doing the empirical stuff (and using humans not pigs, not 600 gram white albino caged up rats, not monkeys although i think some macaques flip around his place and bang around the metal roofs ...:D) placed on extended water only fasting and reversing many maladies allowing the body to do its thing all by itself and that includes specifically in one documented case getting it to finally absorb magnesium and whatever else it wasn't absorbing prior. Cleaning out cell debris and imbalances wherever they are hiding...but allowing the body to do it and getting out of its way...his motto. Same as ALanGoldhammer at TrueNorth in Santa Rosa California. They 'reboot' bodies to absorb like when young. ANd that's what i tend to believe at this point in my life.
Just look at kids and what they eat on a daily basis...aren't you amazed they even grow at all and make beuatiful skin, hair and flexible joints? We adults are trying like hell with this and that natural healthy supplement this that tactics...and what ? We age because we clog up the cells.

July 14, 2017


good point, totally on board with distilled water... i.e. in essence you're saying the food is full of crap... the crap is clogging the system... so it's really all about the organs... unfortunately out of sight out of mind... that's the sad truth...

Where can I find reliable nutrition facts that show the exact amount (milligrams) of silicon in different foods?

March 22, 2016


Go to the USDA website, they do the analysis on most foods

February 09, 2017


There is no such thing! You're describing Morgellons.Quit eating GMO's! PS: you're just talking to an idikot with a free blog. Bad idea! GOogle is YO friend!

I have a growing silicone patch on my skin, and seems as though I have a parasite that is "jelly like" that apparently is primarily silicon, according to a pathologist.
So what do I do to reduce silicon so that I can get rid of this silicon on my skin, and the parasite in me?

I wish I could answer your question Don.
I have recently been toxified by silica it is in everything including vitamins and mineral capsules. Look in Other ingredients listings. I have lost hair, been crippled and have severs cramping in muscles and tendons. Don;t know what to do except try to detox.

Take 8000 IU of vitamin D per day and Magnesium..(can't recommend the dosage). 80% of the population is deficient in it and causes many problems with our health related problems you
Mentioned and many many more.

Bonnie what inane Drivel. "Take 8000 IU of vitamin D per day and Magnesium..(can't recommend the dosage)."
It is people like you giving unsubstantiated crappy advice like above that help people develop health problems. THERE IS NO PLASTIC PILL THAT holds better vitamins and minerals than mother Natures garden produce. Try eating correctly, leave the junk food alone and you will be able to maintain your 7 grams of essential silica that your body needs to maintain.
You can get your Vitamin D by walking and exercising in sunlight (Not in the noon day sun) or eating oily fish such as tuna, salmon, mullet or herrings.
Your Si o2 (pure Amorphous Silica) can be gained by drinking a glass of milk with a heaped teaspoon of Diatomite every morning. Other than that, eat any of these natural products :
There are a number of foods which are an excellent source of silica(silicon) and they are:
Banana (yellow, peeled), 250g - 13.60mg
Beer, 1L - 19.2mg
High bran cereal, 100g - 10.17mg
Bread (wholegrain), 200g - 8.94mg
Raisin (California seedless), 100g - 8.25mg
Mineral water (high silica), 500mL - 7.23mg
Green beans (cooked), 250g - 6.10mg
Carrot (raw, peeled), 200g - 4.58mg
Bread (wholemeal), 200g - 4.50mg
Brown rice, 200g - 4.14mg
Mineral water (regular), 500mL - 3.44mg
Bread (white), 200g - 3.38mg
Wheat biscuits, 100g - 2.78mg
White rice, 200g - 2.48mg
Cornflakes, 100g - 2.42mg
Some studies have shown that men have higher concentrations of silica in their urine and blood due to their higher consumption of beer (compared to women).

As for your INCORRECT ADVICE to take Magnesium, It does not supply silica. The reverse is the case.. Calcium and magnesium need Vitamin D3 to sinthesize and be absorbed into the bone, skin and nails. Vitamin D3 can NOT do this without Si O2 (Silica) to promote the absorpbtion of these essential trace minerals.

Bonnie, you are a classic example of a little knowledge can be dangerous. A lot of people would believe your drivel that you can just pop a piece of plastic, pumped out in some third world sweat shop with synthetic substances and unkown unhygenic fillers and all will be good. Save your money on Drug company crap and eat from the list above and buy some Australian pure Diatomaceous Earth from www.paradisewyandottes.com and read the 5000 word researched blog on the benefits of Silica.
All with out pills and capsules.. have a healthy week ))

Hi Mike,

I agree with Bonnie. I started taking magnesium and it changed my life. is it the only thing I need? definitely not. But nowadays there IS a deficiency in magnesium that would do many people well to understand, as people like myself cannot live very well without it. It is from soil erosion from farming practices that have made magnesium more deficient in the soil. Most (or many) people are deficient. Also drinking cow's milk wont work for people who are vegetarian or vegan. In conjunction with good natural sources of calcium, silica and D3 then it is a good combination. Magnesium glycinate is a safe, very absorpable kind of magnesium.

All the best,

Try taking MSM it will help with hair loss, muscles and joint pain, check this link out: draxe.com

Also consider fasting, and doing a natural collan cleanse, remembering to drink lots of water, it is always key when trying to flush things out of your system.

Get Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth.
Mix one tablespoon with water to make a solution.
Drink every day for six months.
It will get rid of the parasite very quickly,
but the parasite lays eggs.
So you need to keep taking DE for a few cycles.
Six months should be more than enough.
but some people take DE for the rest of their lives.

Mike: I've seen people do what you have done....come in and totally try to demolish someone else for giving what you believe to be "false" information. You play the top dog game by being hateful. The advice the other lady gave, although may not have addressed the lady's problem specifically, but your hatefulness turned me cold. If I were looking for help and I believed your particular solution, I would avoid it just because of your know-it-all attitude. I don't know you OR the lady you tried to demolish with your words, but I do know there is a better way. I also know that there is NOTHING wrong with taking more magnesium or Vitamin D in most cases. So your trump card, in my eyes, was both unkind and a true turn-off. I hope for your sake that you change your attitude if you have a cause in which you believe.
