I'm passing along the email, copied below, that I received from the Diatomaceous Earth (DE) People. We have their two pound bags of food grade DE in our on-line store. From my experience, I recommend that everyone fighting Morgellonsand skin parasites have DE on hand, and it's very inexpensive - only $10.99 plus postage for two pounds, and if you have a Tractor Supply Co. near you, you can get about 20 or 25 pounds of food grade DE for about $20.
"In these trying times, many are worried about how they’ll cope if exposed to disease and illness. It’s important to keep your immune system boosted and as strong as possible.
That’s why we recommend including food grade Diatomaceous Earth in your daily routine which results in amazing health benefits for the body.
Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a gentle abrasive that's also highly absorbent, and it's almost entirely made of silica- an important component of human ligaments, cartilage, and musculature.
DE has many applications in cosmetic, agricultural, and cleansing realms. It's been researched extensively, and some interesting benefits have been discovered.
Taking food grade diatomaceous earth can help you internally and is considered an amazing dietary supplement. It benefits you by:
(1) helping move things out of your intestines
(2) helping promote healthier hair, skin, bones, and joints
(3) improving cholesterol and heart health
(4) providing the body with trace minerals
Many that consider trying DE wonder what it tastes like.
Good news... If you’re eating Diatomaceous Earth, you’ll see that it’s basically tasteless!
DE does have a rough, gritty texture though, so try adding it to a drink with more flavour (milk, orange juice, coffee, or our favourite - smoothies!). You can also add it to light foods like yoghurt, oatmeal, or applesauce.
So, if you’re looking for ways to improve your overall health, consider adding food grade diatomaceous earth to your diet.
We wish you all the very best during this unprecedented time. Stay healthy, stay safe!

And when it comes to the environment, dusting or spraying diatomaceous earth is highly recommended. When an organism touches it by crawling or landing onto the diatomaceous earth, two things happen. First, the DE absorbs water from the organism dehydrating it. Secondly, to any organism it's like walking on chards of glass cutting the organism to pieces. The good news is that it's non-chemical. DE is not toxic like ammonia - no poisons or chemicals. The only downside is that it's a white powder that is visible. But, it destroys mites, Collembola, bed bugs, ants - every live organism that comes in touch with it.
