Opal Silica and Diatomaceous Earth

In this episode, Amy digs into the fascinating world of diatomaceous earth and its incredible health benefits, particularly centered around one of the main components of food-grade diatomaceous earth, opal silica. Amy is joined by Diatomaceous Earth expert and advocate Neil Dailey, with over 33,000 combined hours of research on the topic. Neil is an admin and lead contributor for 3 Facebook mega groups.

The conversation covers various aspects, including opal silica's impact on the body, its role in removing toxins, and it's surprising efficacy in boosting the immune system.

Key Points:

Opal Silica's Vital Role:

  - Opal silica is a crucial component of diatomaceous earth that constitutes various elements in the body, such as bones, cartilage, collagen, teeth, skin, hair, nails, tendons, and more. 

- It plays a fundamental role in maintaining the structure and health of the entire body.

Diuretic Properties:

  - Opal silica, when concentrated in the body, acts as a diuretic, desiccating and removing anything that does not belong. 

- This process aids in drying out and eliminating parasites, providing a natural defense against their harmful effects.

Detoxification Mechanism:

  - The discussion explores how opal silica, especially in the form of food-grade diatomaceous earth, functions as a detoxifying agent. 

- It is highlighted that the substance sticks to unwanted elements in the digestive system, pulling them out and contributing to the cleansing of the colon.

Gut Revolution:

  - Opal silica, particularly in the form of food-grade diatomaceous earth, is praised for revolutionizing the entire digestive system by attaching to anything unwanted in the gut, including biofilm, and effectively pulls it out.

Detox Protocols:

  - It is suggested to gradually increases in opal silica consumption to minimize die-off reactions. 

- Different protocols are discussed, with specific recommendations for individuals dealing with cancer or autoimmune diseases.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties:

  - Opal silica, especially in the form of food-grade diatomaceous earth, is highlighted as a potent anti-inflammatory. 

- Its ability to reduce inflammation is compared to other anti-inflammatory substances, such as MSM and colloidal copper.

Plant and Animal Benefits:

  - Opal silica's benefits extend to plants and animals, where its incorporation into soil or dietary supplements enhances overall health. 

- The discussion covers the application of opal silica for various purposes, such as dental health and immune system support.

Quotable Moments:

“If you take that stone [opal] off of Earth, there is no life. You won't have plants, you will not have animals, you will not have people. You're not going to have anything. It's going to be devoid of life. There's no life without it.” - Neil @ 3:26

“All your connective tissue is made out of collagen. Well, the greatest collagen maker and what you cannot make collagen without, again, is opal silica. “ - Neil @ 19:41
