Health FAQs

A few of the most common questions we receive:

Q. "You say that the recommended daily amount of silica is 375mg, but you have only 131mg in your bone support formula. Why is that? Would we be better off just using the horsetail? Are your products organic?"

A. Our Bone Support is designed to provide you with a good blend of minerals known to be essential for bone health. It is not designed as an individual mineral supplement and therefore has smaller amounts of all the minerals. It has been formulated for those individuals who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia and wish to take a comprehensive formula to strengthen their bones rather than take 8 or 9 different elements. You would not be better off taking horsetail. All minerals are inorganic by definition. Our minerals are not sourced from plant material and therefore have no organic compounds incorporated with them.

Q. "I would like to ask you about your Silica. How much is needed to dissolve calcium deposits? Where does your silica come from, Horsetail Rush? Does it effect a woman's hormones in any way; raise estrogen, Dhea, Testosterone, or Progesterone?"

A. I achieved excellent results with dissolving the calcium deposits on my neck with a daily dose of 375mgs/day. It took between 6 and 9 months. Larger doses will accelerate the process. We know of no toxic dose of Eidon silica. Our silica is sourced from silica sand mined in the southeast U.S. Silica does seem to help stabilize hormone production and regulation in some women and men. Some women have seen improvement in the symptoms of menopause when supplementing with silica. This has not been a universal reaction and we have no idea as to the physiological mechanism at work. There is no scientific research validating or disproving these anecdotal statements. However, all minerals function in the body by catalyzing cellular enzymes. These enzymes control every function of every cell. An optimal balance of all essential minerals is essential for proper cellular function at all levels. Proper hormone levels are directly related to this optimal mineral balance. It isn't just one or two minerals that control the entire endocrine system. Take a look at our hair mineral analysis program. It is the best way to establish your current mineral status and to obtain direction on what you should be supplementing with to reestablish an optimal mineral balance. Supplementing with any (one) mineral will not directly change any hormone level as far as I know. Achieving a balance will give your cells the catalysts they need to function properly - this includes magnesium. A proper diet, exercise, and stress management are also very important. To achieve a good well functioning endocrine system though you must strive for complete mineral balance. The Eidon hair test program is a very good start in this direction.

Q. "You suggested Silica for my fibromyalgia and Iodine (concentrate). I have 4 silver fillings in my teeth and you suggested that I take 2 dropperfulls of the Iodine concentrate daily, how long do I take this amount?"

A. You will need the iodine for as long as you have amalgams in your mouth and for some time afterward to make sure you remove the rest of your mercury. Extra silica accelerates all collagen healing and calcium management.

Q. "What is the difference between your product and what OSHA is talking about below?* I just purchased your product [Silica] at Whole Foods... Do I now have to be concerned about my health?" * U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration Safety and Health Topics: Silica, Crystalline Silicosis is a disabling, nonreversible and sometimes fatal lung disease caused by overexposure to respirable crystalline silica. More than one million U.S. workers are exposed to crystalline silica, and each year more than 250 die from silicosis. There is no cure for the disease, but it is 100 percent preventable if employers, workers, and health professionals work together to reduce exposures.

A. This is a good question, which we get asked frequently. Crystalline silica is silica dust. If you are working in an environment where there is a lot of silica particulates in the air and you inhale it you may create problems for your lungs which could lead to cancer. In reality, if you inhale anything into your lungs other than clean air, you stand the chance of creating a significant lung problem. Smoking is a perfect example. Driving on a crowded freeway is another example. We are not designed to obtain our nutrients via our lungs but rather from the food we eat and the water we drink. Specific vocations expose people to excessive amounts of silica dust. The people who become affected are those who do not take adequate precautions to protect their lungs. Silica in its nutrient form in water or food is a normal and natural delivery mechanism. It is an essential nutrient just like carbon. Inhaling excessive amounts of carbon from burning wood will kill one quite quickly and yet carbon is the second most prevalent element in our body. I hope this answers your question. Drink Eidon silica in good health knowing it is completely safe.

Q. "I need to get off the use of sleeping pills in order to sleep at night. A while back I took concentrated ionic magnesium drops at night and they put me right to sleep. Could you advise me on your products for the best sleep aide?"

A. Our liquid magnesium works the same way and is very effective. Also, you should refrain from eating any refined sugar, flour, or caffeine at least 3 hours before bedtime. Ideally, you should completely eliminate white sugar and flour from your diet. Like the common cold, the origins of insomnia can be mysterious, as sleep can be affected by factors as varied as food and drink, mental state or physical pain. As a natural muscle relaxant, Magnesium is considered the anti-stress mineral. It is a natural tranquilizer, as it functions to relax skeletal muscles as well as the smooth muscles of blood vessels and the gastrointestinal tract. In addition to being a natural tranquilizer, because of its influence on the heart, magnesium is considered important in preventing coronary artery spasm, a significant cause of heart attacks. To function optimally, magnesium must be balanced in the body with calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium chloride. For example, with low magnesium, more calcium flows into the vascular muscle cells, which contracts them-leading to tighter vessels and higher blood pressure. Adequate magnesium levels prevent this from happening.

Q. "Is there any reason why we can not put Silica Moisturizing Lotion on my 4 month old grandson? He has dry, patchy, scaly skin on nearly his whole body. We have been using your moisturizing lotion for two days and he has improved about 80%. We have been slathering him in cortisone cream since about one month of age. I know that can't be good. Besides, it doesn't work anywhere near as well as your lotion."

A. Our lotion is completely safe for anyone, of any age. I would also suggest you give your grandson supplemental liquid silica, sulfur, and iodine, and multiple minerals. His condition is being caused by an internal imbalance of minerals. Cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammatory and its function is to suppress the immune system attacking the allergens. Due to this, the skin settles down and clears, but the cortisone wears off and the immune system starts to attack again. By this time more allergens have deposited themselves so the flare up is more severe. This creates a cycle of cortisone abuse. The recommended dose is 10 days per year. Overuse leads to thinning skin, and a suppressed immune system. Children and teenagers who must use this medicine for a long time should be checked often by their doctor. Other, more potent corticosteroids are absorbed through the skin and can affect growth or cause other unwanted effects. Topical corticosteroids also can be absorbed if they are applied to large areas of skin. For further information on the use of cortisone, see this article from MedlinePlus.
