We Are So Thankful Answers Are Coming!

Living in a developing country, no matter what country comes with certain aspects of life that most people like to sweep under the rug and don't speak of. After all, no one likes to talk about all the dirt, right? But at some point we have to clean under that rug and when we do that's when we wake up and actually grasp reality. But today we are so thankful and we would like to share our gratefulness with you.

  1. Hi, Frank, Angie and Family,

    Your videos have helped to understand EC for years not. Thank you.I owe you all.

    After having watched this video, there is som possibly great news for you regarding parasites. DIATOMACEOUS EARTH! This natural powder comes from the silicon remains of diatoms that have settled to bottoms of certain bodies of water.The package MUST, however,sate that is "food grade." This means safe for mammal consumption! The other kind is used for swimming pool filters and can be deadly!

    Farmers, pet owners, and cattle people use this for livestock: chickens, pigs, horses, cows -- you name them!

    I urge you to research the item. Look up the U.S. F.D.A. study that was farmed out. Look at all the scientific evidence. It is your decision, of course. In short -- they claim it is perfectly safe for humans.

    Cheryl, my wife, and I use one teaspoonful--on oatmeal for me, and sometimes, prepared cereals--for Cheryl EVERY morning.

    We have two dogs.The last time we took them for shots, the veterinarian said: "We will need to do a worm check."
    I responded: "No. They are both on diatomaceous earth." He understood and nodded affirmatively.

    The best to both of you. You are always in our prayers and hearts.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this natural remedy. We have been taking Food grade DE for 15 years and we still got the E. histolytica parasite. It surprised us too because we have been taking DE every morning without fail for years.
