How to Make Silica/Silicea

I posted this on other fourms and the thread became very famous. I got some thousand email regarding silica and people kept asking about same questions. Now at least I can direct them all to this thread:

Many people reported that home-made Silicea caused then wonders.

Here is the way to make silica. I make this medicine to treat the scars of my patients. In most cases it works perfect and in some cases it still works (A step away from perfection)

Make Silica at a dry day (No rain and low humidity)

1. Find some natural rock pebbles (You can find it in sands to make cement concrete mix). Or you can pick it up from rail line tracks.
2. Try to identify the rock pebble (small piece of rock) which is semi transparent) if you can’t find it then any other natural rock will do the job.
3. Heat up the stones to expel the moisture.
4. Stones should be about 20 grams.
5. Now put the stones on a clean metal surface and beat the stone with hammer. In other way you beat up the rock real fine.
6. When you think you can’t beat up the rock any more you stop.
7. Put the powder in a one litter mineral water bottle.
8. Shake it and let it settle for 10 minutes.
9. After 10 minutes heavier rock will settle down at the bottom but water will be still murky because of the micro silica particles.
10. Remove top 1/3 of the liquid without shaking the bottle.

That is your medicine. Use two drops three times a day just like any homeopathy medicine. You may see the results in just two days.

A Microscopic Picture of a grain of Sand :
In this tiny rock are evidence of even tinier marine creatures; tubes left by worms, eggs left by snails,and Res and Green Algae
Girilal remarked:

I always maintain that home-made food is the best food.
You notice that Mother Nature has provided us more than what we have bargained for.

Of all the strange worlds, few are as
strange as the sands in beaches.. There, between the grains, is a microscopic ecosystem populated by sand-lickers, sticky-toed worms and four-legged "water bears". It's a world that remains largely unex¬plored, despite being near enough to touch.
The animals living in the sand are often less than a millimetre long and sometimes as small as one-twentieth of a millimetre. They make up for size with numbers: Scientists estimate that a bucket of sand might hold thou¬sands of these tiny crea¬tures; in a few square metres of beach, there might be millions.

This world plays by rules different from ours, researchers say. And the first rule is: Grab hold of something. For such crea¬tures, even the smallest wave breaks with tsuna¬mi force…
The ani¬mals live either on or between the grains. The sand is a buffet, as well as a shelter. Scientists say the grains are often covered in bac¬teria or tiny plants called diatoms.Enough sunlight
penetrates the sand that these plants can survive even an inch under the surface.
This food is licked off by worms that crawl over the surface of a grain or is munched on by tiny shrimp-like creatures with waving legs called copepods. An animal called Tetranchyroderma looks like a flying carpet with a mouth, propelling itself with a belly¬ful of hairs and vacuuming up bacteria in a giant maw. Some worms called polychaetes simply eat the sand whole and let their digestive systems clean it off. Out the back end, eventually, comes a trail of clean sand

"It really is a different kind of existence, the interstitial environment," said Douglas Miller, a professor at the University of Dela¬ware. Scientists call these creatures "intersti¬tial" because they live in the interstices, or empty spaces, between grains.
Life in this world is short: Most creatures live only a few weeks. That means they need to be ready for reproduction quickly, often a few days after birth. Some creatures have both male and female organs, although they don't usually fertilise themselves. Some can actually switch back and forth between being male and female.
Because these creatures are so hard to see, they've been studied for only 100 years or so.
Because these creatures are so little under¬stood, scientists arejust beginning to explore what they can tell us about pollution or cli¬mate change. In other places around the world. and creatures have been shown to be sensitive to contamination. But there have been few case studies in the mid-Atlantic.

Even though they have just begun to map the world of the sand dwellers, scientists are sure of one thing: We should be glad these creatures are there. They don't seem to cause any human diseases. In fact, they seem to act as the beach's unseen cleaning crew, eating the bacteria left behind by our discarded fries and uncurbed dogs.
And these creatures sit at the bottom of several important food chains: They feed baby fish and small crabs and clams, which become food for a succession of larger crea¬tures. Some important animals eat beach life directly, such as the piping plover, a threat¬ened bird species.
"If the people appreciate the shorebirds," said Don Boesch, president of the University of Maryland Centre for Environmental Science, they should understand that the birds are alive because of "all of these little organisms that are living between the sand grains." - LAT-WP

dear Girilal,

I have made some tim eago my home made silicea, but the question is-could it be made from beach stones rather blue color?

It was beach stone from Adriatic sea taken just from sea side. It looks ratehr nomrlam, 2 cm size.
...it seems to me that it works...

and just another question-fro face scars, should it be taken orally or just appled on face?

thank ypu so much,

Here is the wonderful commentary on Silicea from Prof.Vithoulkas



"wisdom in your body is deeper than your deepest philosophy"(Nietszche)

Re:Silica (Silicea) By: garcot

From the nutritional point of view, an average adult needs about 25mg/day min. and for some the requirement may touch close to 100mg/day. Out of which about 50% is excreted through urine, suggesting that intake to be adjusted according to one's constitution.

The importance of silica, also referred to as dietary "Silicon", in the proper maintenance and function of human (and animal) health, can no longer be ignored. Next to oxygen, silicon is the most abundant element on earth. Silicon is found in the ash of most plant and animal tissues in small quantities.

Silicon is a trace mineral. Although not much is scientifically known about silicon, it is considered an essential trace element. Silicon is required for proper integrity of skin, ligaments, tendons and bone. Silicon is required for the proper functioning of the enzyme prolyhydroxylase which is responsible for the formation of collagen in bone and elastin, cartilage and other connective tissues. Silicon may also be important in bone calcification.

There has been a growing interest in silicon-based products in the cosmetics industry, because they have realized that shampoos, creams and lotions containing silica are very effective for the development of healthy skin, nails and hair.

As we grow older, levels of silica decline in the body and may contribute to many factors of aging, including bone loss and heart disease. Therapeutically, silica has been used to heal fractures and increase bone mineralization in osteoporosis.

There are no known cases of silicon deficiency. It is thought that symptoms of a possible deficiency are certain joint disorders, due to silicon's role in bone and cartilage composition.

Silicon is not usually taken as a supplement on its own and is best taken in the form of a multivitamin and mineral supplement. No estimated safe and adequate daily dietary intake has been established.

In 1878, Louis Pasteur believed that the need for silica in treating many diseases, would someday be widely recognized. Various scientists, in the 20th century, supported Pasteur's theory by extensively studying the effect of silica on animal and human life.

Through research done in 1972 at UCLA, Dr. Edith Carlisle found that silica is an essential trace element, necessary for normal bone development. It was determined that optimal growth and skeletal development could not occur without adequate amounts of this essential trace mineral. While studying mice, depressed growth and skull deformities occurred due to an inadequate supply of silica.

Humans showed the following symptoms when lacking a sufficient amount of silica in their diet: cardiovascular and arterial problems, fragile bones, joint deterioration, digestive disorders, along with weakened gums and teeth.

Once supplied with the appropriate amount of silica, the above symptoms showed considerable improvement, in addition to this: collagen levels elevated, calcium absorption increased, and cardiovascular support strengthened. The texture of the hair, skin and nails showed improvement, as well.

Scientists also discovered that silica is important for making the collagen matrix structure, where calcium deposits are used for building and strengthening bones. Silica is so imperative for forming healthy bones, that some scientists believe silica supplements are even more important than calcium for maintaining bone strength.

Silica supplements become even more necessary as we age, because the human body absorbs and uses less of it, with each passing year. This may be one reason we lose flexibility and joint stability as we get older.

In addition to our ever increasing need for silica, another challenge is that silica cannot easily be found in large quantities in most foods. Though it can be found in certain cereal grains, such as: oats, millet, barley, wheat and potatoes, along with fruits, beets and turnips - most silica is usually lost in the refinement process of these foods.

The average daily intake of silica from the diet is approximately 20 to 50 milligrams per day, but the optimum dose is higher. Researchers are finding that by supplementing the diet with a minimum of 40 milligrams of silica a day, the skin shows an improvement of elasticity, texture and thickness. Added benefits include helping weakened teeth and gums, strengthening bones, and decreasing hair loss. Overall, silica was found to help the body repair, rebuild, strengthen, and lessen or eliminate many body ailments associated with aging. "
