Constipation is a frequent topic. It's been written about before, Constipation Revisited (the most recent) and an earlier one was in our previous blog page which ironically is about diatomaceous earth as well, but for a different reason. Terry shared the following:
Hi Richard, I’ve found that if I add heaping teaspoon of DE to my morning Coffee it seems to make stool smother & softer & easier to pass for me ! Prior it was always rock hard & I only had bowel movement every 4 days after taking suppository, which was very toxic causing Cramps & other complications such as extra foggy mind & fatigue & over all weakness & nausea. It took about 2 weeks of drinking DE daily before I was affected by it can actually feel the Organisms hanging on inside after drinking the DE. Terry
I thank Terry for sharing. Personally, I can't imagine going more than 24 hours without a bowel movement--4 days would be agony. I hope her experience helps you too if constipation has been an issue. There are many other benefits for using diatomaceous earth as reported in another blog post, DE vs Bentonite Clay.
