Recent studies are finding that there is a strong correlation between clogged gastro intestinal tracts, heavy metals, and behavioral problems. It is believed that these problems are due in part to mercury in vaccines, food preservatives, and the quantity of processed food that is consumed. The nutrient poor diet in combination with the lack of fiber and high percentage of meat has contributed to an acidic state and a clogged intestinal tract. In fact, studies show that the overwhelming majority of children who suffer from ADHD, Autism, and other behavior disorders have high levels of metals in the blood stream and that "their upper GI tract is an absolute mess".
Not surprising is that once these symptoms are treated, and their diets are improved, their behavior improves also.
We have found a similar situation with livestock. For over 35 years, customers' testimonials report that the behavior of horses, cows, goats, and pets have quickly changed when diatomaceous earth (DE)has been added to their diet. Studies have shown that in addition to the mechanical killing and removing of parasites in the intestinal tract, that the DE also removes metals from the system. In fact, Dr. Galen Knight has hypothesised that diatomaceous earth could be a better and safer chelator than DMPS, DMSA, and EDTA. We have seen that cows who licked holes in the earth and horses that chew on fence posts stop once DE is added to the diet. It was initially believed that this was due to the 14 trace minerals in the DE. However, it is now believed that it is not only due to the minerals in the DE, but also the fact that the toxins from the parasites as well as the built up waste on the walls of the stomach are removed due to the mild abrasive qualities of the DE. The removal of the parasites and waste allow more of the nutrients from the food consumed to be absorbed and benefit the animals. The result is a significant and noticeable change in the behavior. The animals become calmer and there is a noticeable decrease in their food intake. The food intake is evidence that they are getting more nutrients from less food. We also have seen a sheen return to their coat, brighter eyes, and more pep in their step. Farmers have also reported that arthritic animals lose their stiffness and become active and lively again. In fact, this was one of the reasons that farmers initially began consuming DE after feeding it to their livestock.
I believe that it is very likely that children with behavioral disorders, intestinal problems, autism, and heavy metal levels could see some significant benefits if DE were introduced in their diet and certain foods were removed from their diets. The Feingold Diet has had great results by introducing a restrictive diet and by focusing on cleansing the intestinal tract and removing metals from the system. I have no doubt, in light of the results that Dr. Galen Knight have reported, that DE could prove one of the most effective and cost efficient natural solutions to this enormous and devastating problem facing children today.
In addition to adding organic DE to the diet, I believe that the addition of ionized/oxidized water to the diet might also play a significant role in the elimination of parasites, toxins, and in promoting good health. The addition of an ionizing unit in the home will help keep the body in balance.
Ionized Water is Alkaline :
Ionized water helps balance the body's pH, which tends to be acidic because of our diet comprised of cooked foods, pasteurized or otherwise processed foods. Soft drinks are the most acid substance a person can put in their body. This acidic condition creates an ideal environment in our body for disease to thrive. Ionized water dissolves accumulated acid waste and returns the body to a balance. Keeping ourselves alkaline is the first line of defense in fighting any disease.
Ionized Water is Up to Six Times more Hydrating that Conventional Water :
Water is one of the most important elements in the body, which in some cases is over 80% water. Ionized Water is fundamentally different from conventional water. This is because the size and shape of the water molecule cluster has reduced in size and change in shape to hexagonal, which allows the water cluster to pass through our tissue more easily. One of the primary causes of disease is chronic cellular dehydration, a condition, which leaves the body's cells in a perpetual state of weakness and defense. Drinking ionized water helps with this condition.
Ionized Water is Detoxifying and a Superior Hydrator :
This is also because of the reduced size and shape of the water molecule clusters. Once reduced, these water clusters pass through the body's tissue much easier and push out toxins and acid waste quite effectively. The KYK Harmony water ionizer has several levels of strength so people who are toxic can begin by drinking mild ionized water, slowly drinking it stronger as they acclimate to it.
Minerals that are Ionized are more Bio-available :
This means that the body can absorb them much more efficiently and make use of them where they are needed throughout the body. Water soluble trace minerals of any kind can be added to your water source through the mineral port on the Harmony Water Ionizer. Minerals are some of the most important nutrients the body needs, yet mineral deficiency is common. Ionized water is an efficient and effective way for the body to get its minerals.
Ionized Water improves the taste of food :
Ionized Water hydrates food better, helps bring out its flavor, lowers acid levels of any food including coffee, tea & juice. It ionizes the minerals in the food, which helps make them bio-available.
At its strongest level, Ionized acid water kills most bacteria on contact. It improves hair and skin conditions of any kind, including fungus, cuts, scraps, even serious wounds. It takes the itch out of mosquito bites, the sting out of other insect bites.
Author's Offer - If you have a child who is suffering from Autism, ADHD, or another behavioral disorder, and you would like to participate in a trial using pure organic, food grade diatomaceous earth, please contact me. I am looking for 300 - 500 children, aged 6 - 9 to participate in this trial, who will document their results over a 6 month period. During this time, I will provide 100% of the DE to those participating in the trial, free of charge. It is my hope that by documenting the results, this very inexpensive, all natural treatment might be used by others.
For questions or to participate, call Fran Tully at 888-949-3570 or email me.
