Diatomaceous Earth + Iodine: My 30-Day Trial Days 5 & 6
I have noticed I am falling asleep faster and sleeping more soundly, which is a big change over before. I am definitely more regular with my bowel habits, but one thing does concern me. (GRAPHIC WARNING) My stools seem to be very narrow, like they are coming out through a smaller opening. I can't imagine what would cause that. Also, they are very "fibrous," like a hemp rope, and contain things I've never seen before, at least not going into my body. They are also a little lighter, but that might just be what I'm eating right now.
I imagine some of this is because the DE is scraping my intestines clean and killing a lot of the strongyloides and probably other parasites and carrying them out of my body. The pain under my ribs and on my right side has ceased.
I definitely can attest that DE has diuretic properties. Everything I drink goes right through me very quickly. The only bad effect is that my appetite has increased, so I think I have gained back a little of the weight I lost.
As for the iodine, I got a few bromine detox sores on my face, but they are going away, and I haven't seen any more pop up. I'm still only taking 1 drop a day. My lips have stopped peeling completely since I started putting the iodine on them daily and topping it off with Aquaphor. Whatever critter was causing the peeling, it seems to be under control. I didn't put any iodine on them today, and they are fine, but I will do it tomorrow.
The iodine eyedrops seem to have taken care of whatever was squiggling in my eye, but my eyes are a little dry, so I'm going to start putting coconut oil in them at night and maybe again in the morning.
I have been coughing and sneezing a lot today, but I think that is just the cold weather we are having. I'm literally allergic to the cold. Cold air sets off a histamine reaction in me that feel a lot like a cold if I don't treat it immediately.
One more thing. The castor oil treatment on my scalp has worked. I can see new growth on the edges of my hair, and a few new hairs on top. I think it's too early to attribute that to the DE, so it must be the castor oil.
That's it for now. I'll check back in a few days to tell you more.
