In brief: Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is used to eliminate certain insects as it is made from Diatoms which are mostly amorphous silica.
Food grade DE is "Generally Recognized as Safe" by the FDA. I would check with your PCP who knows your history best regarding any parasite infections.
