MSM, Raw Garlic
[YEA] 07/03/2009: PB from Vancouver, BC, Canada: "07/03/2009: PB from Vancouver, BC, Canada writes: "Anal Itch remedy: 5gm MSM/ 2 cloves raw garlic, taken 2x per day at the beginning of a meal.
This webpage should mention that Pinworms cause anal itching. Pinworms cause itchy butt by depositing a gel around the anus, where they lay their eggs. Butt scratching is an important part of the pinworm lifecylce. If itchy butt wakes you up at night -- you probably have pinworms.
I struggled with anal itch for 10+ years, finding many remedies that cleared symptoms temporarily. I've also tried numerous 'parasite cleanse' remedies, including zapper. I was even tested for parasites and declared "clear". Yet, itching would recur, soon.
On a recent trip to India, I discussed my problem with an ayurvedic doctor who diagnosed me with "worms", and prescribed an ayurvedic deworm remedy (krimighnavatika) -- which I took for four months. After two months symptoms had mostly disappeared. This is the longest I had been without symptoms since I could remember. But the symptoms returned when I got off the medicine. I believe the doctor's diagnoses about "worms" to be correct... he told me that the longer I'd been infested (i.e. how many worms and eggs I have inside me) -- the longer I'd have to take the medicine. Four months was not enough.
This confirmed to me that I had worms that were not cleared by western style natural health parasite cleanse methods. I've lived and traveled extensively in Central America and in Asia, and I guess I have something from there that isn't seen that often in N.A. and Europe.
I could not afford to take the ayurvedic medicine indefinitely. Searching the internet for "deworm" remedies, I encountered a veternary sites that were discussing alternate therapies for worm infestations in livestock. In some searches, there was overlap in discussions between livestock and humans. Somewhere along the line, I ran across a site discussing MSM, administered in super doses causing a choking effect on worms.
That site recommended 5gm dissolved in a few ounces of water taken right before the main morning meal and again before the main evening meal. Then with those meals, 2 raw cloves of garlic, finely chopped, or crushed. (I butter a slice of bread, spread the garlic over the butter, and add a slice of cheese... yummy ... and a good antidote for the bitter MSM drink). Don't take more than 4 raw cloves per day -- too much will inflame your stomach and cause cramping. You can eat as much thoroughly cooked garlic as you want in addition to the raw garlic.
You stay on this regimen until symptoms subside, then slowly reduce the dose. MSM advocates recommend MSM be used daily (1gm) for health maintenance. Claims are made that it helps move blood to joints, hairs, and nails, and also lubricates cell linings allowing toxins to be more easily removed (which is how it clears worms). I can also claim that, at age 53, my beard has started growing faster, and much less hair falls out in the shower!
I have had astounding results with this method -- for the first few weeks there were worms appearing in my bowel movements every few days... about 4 different shapes. I haven't found any worm/parasite images anywhere on the internet to match them to. The most common type is not a worm at all, but looks like a tiny jellyfish, maybe 5mm across. I expect there's probably stuff I can't see coming out as well -- the ones I've seen are all white. I've only seen one mixed in with fecal matter. I hadn't had a worm show up in weeks, then this morning I had one about an inch long -- so it's still not over -- but I'm managing with out the ayurvedic medicine, and I'm happy about that.
While I used to be awoken at night by itching, now itch only occurs after a bm. But the degree of itching after BM has subsided considerably. I have also made significant lifestyle changes... Asian style hygiene in the bathroom (i.e. wipe with water) ... always brush fingers and under nails after using bathroom, and before handling food. Avoid handling food with hands, avoid touching face with hands.
I can say whatever I have is not communicable (unlike pinworms, which are easily transferred to anybody you touch with your hands)... been in two relationships during these years, and neither partner picked up my parasites."Replies

I am working on myself also,,I have been trying all the different products I read about on this site,,and I get results with all, I try them all because I am interested to be sure that they work. You were using MSM, how is things progressing? I used MMS and it does work,,but you have to go slow, only take what you can with out getting to nauseus, you will some.

07/19/2013: Azbluebird from Gilbert, Arizona: "Had this situation, It was driving me mad I did this: Regarding unknown itching/mites demodex/fungus
1. Test for Protozoan Fl1953 or others.
2. Cleans body for any type fungus/flukes etc. with Blk walnut/Clove/Wormwd, 2-3 tbl apple cider vinegar daily. ph balance your body it needs more oxygen in body to kill of fungi/parasites/viruses etc. especially if no gallbladder.
3. Test for metals, fungus loves metals. demodex love metals/fungus, amalgams merc/lead/alum etc. Root canal/metal fillings can have underlying low grade infection with no obvious signs of immune burden with any above.
Now clean all your organs 1 at a time colon/kidneys/liver/blood www.dr.huldaclark.org. Dont do to much at one time you will herx: edema heart palp, ra symptoms go slow and steady. House clean your body 2-3 times a year.
- Face: products that worked for me: metrodiazonole gel with nystatin helped rash and stop spread
- Face: sea buckthorne oil as much as needed to spread on face with 2-4 drops blk walnut hull tincture mix
- shower: hibicleans-be careful very drying, ceravea, aveeno for moisture, vinegar rinse you hair to get rid of hitchhikers.
- body/skin: mix cervae, palmers oilgel, sea buckthorne lotion, 4-5 drops sea bck thrn oil tincture, with 3-5 drops blk walnut hull tincture
No quick fix with this situation sorry so sorry.
Products for home: cedarcide spray ($$$$), enzyme cleaners, apple cider vinegar and alcohol wipe frequently. Wash clothes and sheets everyday. I found microfiber sheets stay away from cotton as much as possible.
supplements: balanced minerals, balanced multi, digestion enzymes/systemic enzymes, human food grade diatomaceous earth DE 1/4 tsp work up to 2 tbls daily, check vit D, chlorella w/cgf, Kelp, spirulina, probiotics, vit C crystals 10gm or more a day/msm. Everyone's bodily terrain is different mix and match what works for you.
I am not a Doctor and no harm is meant. Blessing with you all gods love and light. I hope this helps someone."
08/30/2010: Leerob from Gaborone, Botswana: "Ted' thanks for the advice. I started using ACV and Bicarbonate of soda soon after. Its about 2 weeks now, but my worry is after washing my hair with Bicarbonate of soda and rinsing it with ACV my scalp feels like its set on fire only in the affected area especially the lumps behind my ears, they literally burn, swell and the skin turns purple. Amazingly, the unaffected parts hair grows like grass, very thick and rich and the parasites seem to now move to where there is hair while on the affected areas there is improvement as its not smooth and shiny skin anymore there is substantially growth of which I am happy about. Now I have shaved my hair completely as it seems that the parts with hair is now attacked by these little monsters. Apart from all the crawling under the scalp has subsides only two places which is the skin above my ears close to the lumps where at time I feels some slight movements. What caused me to shave my hair was the other day, after a week of washing my hair daily with the treatment I skipped two days for I felt it was too much when I felt the itch and upon looking closer I felt on the follicle of my hair the little things like small eggs (larvae) just at the roots where I have hair. And surprising the way the hair comes off is like a line from the front hair line slowly uniformly towards the back so I decided maybe the best way is to shave my head. I did the peroxide and ACV once then just continued with bicarbonate of soda and ACV. Once I applied pure eucalyptus oil and my scalp felt like I poured acid really bad had to wash it off immediately and followed with tea tree lavender oil which calmed the burning sensation. My question.. What is it that I am doing wrong?Am going crazy with this scalp. It gets better and then its starts again. But the best that came out of this as I take internally Bicarbonate of soda and ACV daily is my back pain. For years I have suffered hip joints and lower back pain due to an accident. I was limited to a lot of every day tasks, crippled by pain all the time. But since I took ACV and Bicarbonate of soda to my amazement I feel no pain absolutely nothing I am able to do tasks let alone sit for 15min on a chair without complaining and a lot of energy though its seems to affect my digestive system by slowing it down. Thanks for this site and to you Ted for your patience and help I am not giving up I will try all the remedies for the scalp until I find the right one. At the moment I am continuing with ACV , Bicarbonate of soda and once a week in between ACV with peroxide, apply Tea Tree , Lavender , eucalyptus, Olive oil , and citronella oil. All the antibacterial oils mixed in the same amount. I forgot to mention I take Carbimazole 5mg for my thyroid, Solgar sugar and salt free supplements for skin, hair and nails, multivitamins and I have low blood pressure. Worse of all a bad habit of smoking not heavily but smoker all the same. The problem is only on the front hair line slowly pushing to the back of my head. Apart from that I have full thick rich hair half my scalp which I just shaved. Can someone use Potassium carbonate & sodium bi-carbonate solution 1 part 50parts water on the scalp?"Replies

Certain hairstrands will move all about, especially at night. What is this??? I really feel helpless. This is not a joke. I cannot sleep I am so freaked out! Also, see worms in my stool. Just recovered from c diff, was recently diagnosed with anemia, and white blood cells in stool. Getting further testing but I am pretty sure traditional doctors will be of no help dealing with the parasite. My family doctor advised me to see a shrink. I was furious! Help!"

(believed to be genetically engineered) I wish I was more help but my knowledge of the subject is limited, just stumled across it in my perusing the internet. Lots of conspiracy theory stuff behind the explanations but also a lot of very real people suffering from it. For what's it's worth... I believe you. Just remember God is bigger!"
03/07/2012: Kombuchababy from Bucksport, Me replies: "The scalp movement is from demodex mites. They live in the hair follicles. Everyone has them but some people get a proliferate. I know because I fight them myself. What seems to work is ivermectin. ACV hair rinse helps. After I dye my hair it also feels better. Currently I have changed my diet to exclude wheat, sugar and any and all junk food. I am eating a LOT of garlic."

08/13/2013: Val from Texas, Us replies: "Reading all of the replies about parasites had startled me greatly! I remember my mother telling us that when my older sister (who is in her late 40s) was a small child she pooped out worms. My mother took her to the doctor and they told her that there was no such thing. I can only imagine how she must have felt as a young mother concerned for her child. So when I read above where the commentor was told by a doctor to go see a shrink, I was reminded of this. Just wanted to share that. Sometimes we have to take control of our own health. I hope you find relief!"

[YEA] 08/10/2007: Camara from Washington, DC: "I've used Oil of Oregano for mouth infections, to help cleanse intestinal parasites, as well as ward off yeast infections. I use the liquid form which tastes really bad and burns. Finally I got smart and now buy empty capsules from the health food store and put 2-3 drops in a capsule. Now I get the full benefits without the awful taste. I also brush my teeth with it sometimes and still use it as a rinse if my mouth or gums are sore (I dilute with warm water). I always keep a bottle handy."Replies
02/10/2010: Heidi from Orlando, Fl replies: "I'm confused. If this oil tastes so awful that you need to put it in capsules, why do you recommend brushing your teeth with it or rinsing your mouth. Doesn't make sense."

09/02/2011: Brrr1106 from Grand Forks, Nd replies: "If oregano oil is to be used for parasites, make sure it is oil of WILD oregano. There is a big difference. The oregano used for cooking does not contain a phenol called Carvacrol which is antiseptic, antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antivenom and antiparasitic. Do some research on Wild Oil of Oregano to find out more about it and to choose a good quality product. I use a drop or two in the oil when I oil-pull. A drop or two under the tongue when I feel a cold coming on or have more congestion than normal has been beneficial to me. Just make sure you get the WILD OIL OF OREGANO and not a derivative from the ordinary oregano."
[YEA] 08/27/2011: Lotusborn from Pahoa, Hi, Usa: "Papaya Seeds for parasites. I have had long standing problems with parasites, some of them pinworms, others never identified but caused a terrible rash around butt and vagina and of course sleepless nights.
A simple and inexpensive cure: I blended 1 cup of papaya seeds with 2 small bananas (it just have to be edible as the seeds are like pepper) and ate the whole thing. I lay there and could feel how it became quiet in there. This might be too strong for some but I was desperate. So, one might want to start with a lower dose as recommended but that is not how I personally operate."Replies

[YEA] 11/01/2011: Jok from Indianapolis, In replies: "I've had much success expelling parasites with papaya seeds. I buy fresh papayas and eat the seeds. I chew 1 to 2 teaspoons then swallow with water. I do this 3 times a day and continue for several weeks.
Using fresh ingredients is always better than encapsulated. For example, wormwood, black walnut and cloves are antiparasitic herbs but if they're not fresh, they won't work. For cloves, they must be fresh, non-irradiated. Usually organic cloves are non-irradiated but if it doesn't say on the bottle, ask to be sure. I grind them myself in a coffee grinder and put them in empty gelatin capsules."

Rat Lung Worm Disease (Eosiniphilic Meningitis)

Many suffer from this horrible parasite that eats your brain and spine in Hawaii and other tropical areas. 40-60 Grams of vitamin C every 3 days is slowly curing me. Some are curd after one treatment, others need it for a year. Holistic doctors usually offer it, sometimes even your doctor will do it if you ask."Replies
05/13/2011: Leila from Hilo, Hi replies: "Sorry, forgot to mention that I also take as high a dose of vitamin C orally as I can to keep away meningitis symptoms. Keeping cold also helps as well as absolutely avoiding sugar, bread, white flour, white rice, and chocolate or coffee. Basically anything inflammatory. I've found vitamin c encased in fatty acids that you absorb in your mouth as opposed to digestive tract is much easier for me. Regular citric acid and other powders give me diarhea no matter what the dosage. Ideally you need 6-10 grams at least a day. I hope to this helps fellow sufferers of this horrific parasite! <3"

[YEA] 11/11/2008: Grant from San Diego, California: "Raw Garlic helped with intestinal parasites
1 large clove of garlic chewed slowly (and painfully) one time in the morning with nothing else in my stomach.
While in Peru I got diarrhea and had chills and a fever. I called the local emergency clinic and a doctor came to see me the next morning. They analyzed a stool sample and found that I had giardia. I was prescribed tinidazol for the giardia and ciprofloxacine for whatever else might be giving me the fever. I took the medication religiously. A few days later upon returning home, my fever was gone, but the diarrhea remained. I went to see my doctor and they took another stool sample. However, since things were so bad, I decided to see what I could do about it in the mean time. Hence the garlic bomb. From the moment I took that first garlic bomb my digestive system has behaved very well, i.e no rush trips to the bathroom. Since it was so effective, I decided to take the raw garlic in the morning and evening until things were entirely back to normal. At this point (3 days later) I am about at 90% normal. 2 days ago I started a detox cleanse kit from trader joes. It consists of fiber pills, degestive pills and a liver pill. Today I am thinking of adding goldenseal to the mix."
11/11/2008: Grant from San Diego, California replies: "This is a method for taking raw garlic ... the garlic spring roll bomb.
Crush 1 clove of garlic onto a small piece of a softened thai spring roll sheet. Roll it up into a small garlic burrito - then down the hatch. It goes down real smooth without getting any garlic on the inside of your mouth."

[NAY] 11/10/2010: Vasilisa from New York, Ny replies: "I've been suffering from Giardiasis for almost 1. 5 years. I got it in Sarasota, Florida when I was swimming in the swimming pool of my husband's parents. Oh My God! I've visited 10 doctors in 4 states (Fl, RI, MA, NY) and they couldn't find anything. I've gone through 2 endoscopies, almost 30 stool samples, blood tests, Ultra sound and CAT scan of my abdominal area. I am Russian and I had to fly to my mother country to get help from Russian doctors. Sorry for that but American doctors are money diggers. In Russia my blood was tested and antibodies showed that I had Giardia. I had terrible symptoms:red spots (allergic reactions) on my face, brown pigment spots, painful gallbladder, pain under my belly button, irritated bowel syndrome, yeast, hair loss, fragile nails, numb tongue (Iron deficiency), cracked lips (vitamin B deficiency), malabsorption, bloating, chronicle fatigue, depression, aggressiveness etc. The doctor-infectionist prescribed many different antibiotics (Metronidazole, Albendazole, Tinidazole, Nifuroxazide ) along with herbs to stimulate my gallbladder, pancreas and clean my liver. They helped for a while but they killed all my intestinal flora. Now I drink tea with Birch leaves (russian remedy for parasites) 3 times a day, eat only organic food, take 1 tbs of Flax seed oil a day, drink aloe Vera juice, eat raw garlic 3 cloves a day, mix Spirulina with organic goat yogurt, eat Coconut oil 3 times a day, take probiotics, get shots of Vitamin B complex and Vitamin B12 once a week, eat beef because I have anemia. I don't eat sugar, bread, canned food. Did garlic help me? Nooooo. Am I cured? Not yet:-((( I am struggling for my health cursing Florida and my husband's parents who mocked me everyday because I didn't swim in their swimming pool. Then I decided to shut them up and you know the result. C-- Pharmacy in the USA sells only crap. I bought Selenium there. God, it was mixed with yeast. I have to be very careful what I buy in the USA. It takes time for me to find clean organic products without starch, GMO, yeast, gluten, sugar. It drives my husband crazy but I want to L-I-V-E and be healthy again. After reading some posts I am going to buy MSM. Thank you."
11/10/2010: Vasilisa from New York, Ny replies: "It makes me laugh that I am a human being (Homo Sapiens) can't do anything with one tiny cell protozoa Giardia. I just wanted to give advice to those who suffer from parasites.
1. Wash your hands ALWAYS!!!
2. Clean your apartment or house with bleach. Do laundry every week and wash the sheets in hot water.
3. Get rid of pets. I love pets but my health is very precious to me.
4. Eat and cook at home.
5. Eat organic food, especially vegetables and fruits, different cereals like brown rice, buckwheat, corn (polenta), barley etc to get essential minerals.
6. Don't eat junkie food from fast food, don't buy frozen food. Parasites like it.
7. Avoid alcohol, sugar, canned food. Don't drink black/green tea, coffee, energy drinks (any stimulators). Avoid milk!!!! If you need calcium, please drink Yogurt without sugar or Kefir.
8. DON'T TAKE MULTIVITAMINS while you are killing them. As a russian doctor said to me that I would feed them and my treatment wouln't be effective.
9. Take probiotics to restore intestine flora.
10. Be persistent with doctors. You have to convince them that you are not just crazy. After 1.5 years of struggling I was able to find an infectionist in NYC and convince her that I had Giardia. She prescribed me Flagyl. It was a little bit late because the parasites had damaged me a lot.
11. Be prepared that it will take a long time to get rid of them because they don't want to leave the host's body with plenty of vitamins and food.
12. Watch the movie "Food incorporation". It will reveal the truth."
11/10/2010: Tommy from North York, On, Canada replies: "Hi Vasilia,
Regarding your Giardiasis, there is an herb that has some activity against it it's called sarcosephalus but I don't know where you can get it. You are supposed to drink the tea from the leaves of this herb. It's also called African peach or guinea peach. Good luck."
11/11/2010: Tommy from North York, On, Canada replies: "Hi Vasilia,
If you cannot get sarcosephalus leaves, try to find a vet who can give you the vaccine GiardiaVax. The reason why the vaccine against Girdia is available for animals and not for human is because the pharmaceutical industry is not interested in ending the problem once for all. A vaccine against Girdia for human means for them less sales of Flagyl, Nitazoxanide, and other medicines as well. Good luck."
11/11/2010: Tommy from North York, On, Canada replies: "Hi again,
From the little research I did about Giardia is that is difficult to treat without a proper diet and the appropriate gun. You mention that a person with Giardia should avoid tea. I think that the green tea is very good against parasites. It has a lot of Tannin which will denature them, as Ted explained in another post. You can try Sweet annie and vidanga ( Ayurveda antiparasite) if the sarcosephalus leaves are not available for you. You can also take caprylic acid which is a very good antiparasite and will give you energy. So you don't crave a lot because caprylic acid can provide energy for you and the bug cannot use it ( It's amazing!! Is it?)
If the above doest work than try a combo of :
Ornidazol, Quinacrine, Paromomcyn for 2 weeks ( doctor think that 4 days is enough but that is far from the truth. You have to continue killing them until there are just few cysts that the immune system can handle them). Or Flagel, Furazolidone, Bacitracin Zinc ( I'm trying to avoid cross resistance as much as possible). If you start feeling better, don't let the temptation of starch overcome you and switch the treatment from defense into attack ( Taking immune booster such AHCC, Iodide, L-arginine and L-glutamine to build the tight junctions in the gut). Good luck."
11/15/2010: Vasilisa from New York, Ny replies: "Hi! Did you suffer from Giardiasis? I curse that day when we moved to FL. As russian doctors explained to me I have to avoid tea. I drink tea - a mixture of herbs to stimulate my gallbladder. I even tried a russian remedy for giardiasis "Birch Tar". One russian homeopath doctor recommended to mix 10 drops of tar with milk and drink it twice a day for 10 days, then rest for 10 days and repeat this procedure 3 times. Parasites like milk and when they eat milk they eat TAR also. I've tried it only once. It was so nasty that I stopped. I need to start it again.
Since I've got Giardiasis in the USA, I think I have to try american remedies because russian ones don't work. I've taken Ornidazole also - no effect. All chemical pills help me for 10 days. When I stop taking them, I get the same symptoms in 10 days. 10 days is their cycle. I've read many forums in my language and doctors say it is not possible to get rid of Giardiasis. I'll die eventually. I have vitamin B and Iron deficiencies. It's terrible. I hardly have energy to go to a grocery shop to buy food. I can't work... Only spirulina saves my life a little bit. I am so angry at american doctors. They could have helped me in the beginning. Only after 1.5 years one american doctor agreed with me and prescribed Flagyl. I doubt that it will help me because I've already taken Metronidazole. A russian doctor told me that Giradiasis demages a human being's body about 90% opening doors to other diseases, viruses etc.
It is just beginning of hell.... After reading some posts on this site I take Organic Coconut oil 3 times a day and I take MSM also. It's been 2 weeks and I don't see any improvements. I am going to buy Golden-seal and Black Walnut hull. If somebody had experience with Giradiasis, please share it with me. I'll appreciate it very much. P. S. Personal THANK YOU to Tommy from North York, On, Canada. I don't give up!"
11/15/2010: Tommy from North York, On, Canada replies: "Hi Vasilisa,
It's my pleasure if I can help you. That what earth clinic is here for. I mentioned to you that one week or 10 days treatment won't work. You are dealing with a protozoa that has cyst resistant to the anti parasite. You have to continue the treatment for at least 4 weeks. Milk is not good. It feeds the parasite but I never know about tar with milk. You have also to take more than one anti parasite. When you take one at once, you give it a chance to become resistant and we don't want to get to that situation. I think that you might have more than one parasite. If you can afford a comprehensive DNA stool test from Methamerix that will be the best for you. Blastocystis hominis is the worst parasite and it modulates the immune system to the point that we start having no B cells producing the IgA.
In the mean time, try Vidanga ( Ayurvedic herb) and Bai Tou Weng Tang ( Pulsatilla Decoction)from a Chinese herbalist. Also try sweet annie tea with that. For your energy you need to take Caprylic acid. This acid taken by the athletic because it delivers more energy than glucose and it kills the parasites and fungus also. Avoid grains. In your other post you mentioned that grains can be taking but that is not good. Grains are rich in Starch which is a polymer of glucose and more glucose means more colonies of the protozoa. You can also take colloidal silver. For the best results, you have to take these herbs together( Vidanga, Sweet annie, Bai Tou Weng Tang). Don't take capsules. You have to make a tea or a decoction of these herbs. If nothing works than use the treatment I described before for AT LEAST 4 WEEKS. Could you tell me the treatments you took before? and for how long? Did you take Bactrim?
You can contact me at my email : email@example.com
PS: Don't take hydrogen peroxide because Giardia has catalase and it resists it more than human cells."

I wanted to share with you with a recipe I read in russian health magazine The Healthy Way of Life (available in NY), #10 from Oct 2012. On p. 85 one woman shares her success curing Giardia with horseradish. She grated 1 tsp. of horseradish, mixed it with either sour cream or vegetable oil and took it in a morning and at bedtime (1 tsp each time) for 5 days. The only contraindication she mentioned was kidney problems. Hope this helps. God Bless!"

07/15/2013: Om from Hope BC, Canada replies: "S. From Fairfax US. Strong anti-parasitics are neem and vaividong (Embelia Ribes). Ayurvedic practicioners have a wide knowledge of anti parasitics which are not known in the West. You might try online. Others are Kutac, Clove and Black Cumin, Om"
07/11/2012: Clarissa from Hopkins, Mn: "I need a doctor or scientist to diagnose some sort of smaller parasite thats infected me everywhere. It has made me internally bleed, dropped by neutrophils. Disrupted my psuedo sweat response. I tried to get rid of them and cut the sugar out and they reacted very badly- I got very sick and had ketones in my urine. I had a hiatal nissan surgery cuz they thought it would make me better but I still stayed sick. I have all the medical documentation of the blood work n results. I am in some trouble cuz of this and am losing hope. Please if you know of anyone who would be willing to look for a possible zoonosis or new lake parasite it would be greatly appreciated."Replies
07/11/2012: Steve from Las Vegas, Nevada replies: "Several things come to mind, food grade diatomaceous will kill parasites, olive leaf extract, coconut oil, and something called a zapper will kill parasites quickly. You can find them on ebay, I use a zapper z4ex. There are many herbal anti-parasitic combination formulas available at your local healthfood store as well."
07/12/2012: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Clarissa, incorporate liberal amounts of figs and pineapple in the diet. Any herbal parasite formula will help; "Humaworm" is recommended by many folks as it is a broad spectrum treatment. Try OTC "Pryrantel Pamoate" from local pharmacy. Iodine deficiency can cause an overgrowth of parasites; tons of info on Iodine supplementation here on Earth Clinic. Hot baths w/ added Povidone Iodine once weekly will help (i also drink a dose of Potassium Iodine during bath for best results (Iodine loading)."
07/12/2012: Pahlee from Phila, Pa. replies: "What is diatomaceous? and how do you use it."
EC: Hi Pahlee, that would be 'diatomaceous earth'. Lots of instructions and remedies on our diatomaceous earth page!
07/12/2012: Pahlee from Phila, Pa. replies: "Is there a recipe for olive leaf extract, coconut oil and zapper, which is best to use for this parasite?"
07/12/2012: Steve from Las Vegas, Nevada replies: "Most people take 1-2 Tbsp/day of diatomaceous earth in a glass of water or juice for parasites. It's a very economical way to get rid of them. The zapper has some expenditure up front but you can use them for many years after purchased, not just for parasites but all types of infections colds, flu etc. You will get lots of info on google. I like the z4ex but there are many others to choose from. Olive leaf can get a little more expensive if used regularly for parasites, it takes about six 250mg caps/day to get rid of parasites. Eastpark is my personal favorite. Coconut oil is one of the more expensive ways to get rid of parasites but it will work. If you are just starting from ground zero and on a budget maybe just try the DE for a month as see how it goes. Many people get rid of them with DE alone."
07/13/2012: Beccalec from Melbourne, Fl, Usa replies: "We also put DE in our dogs food. It helps with fleas, ticks and other internal parasites."
07/13/2012: Reader Of Ec from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "Diatomatious earth will work however it will be well over 90 days before it will eliminate parasites in the stomach, large and small intestines. DTE will shred the adult parasites however less so the eggs, intermediate stages, viruses and bacteria within the parasite all at once. It will not make it into the walls of the gut to reach parasites residing there.
DTE will take too much time if you are in a sickly condition. What you need is a good doctor and a diagnosis and proper medication. From researching this field in the last 3 years, I find people in the US and Europe have difficulty with doctors regarding parasites as most tend to believe parasites are not as common or at the root of many illnesses as they actually are UNLESS the condition is visibly obvious.
Follow the Dr Hulda Clark parasite cleanses. It will take 21 days with Black Walnut, Fresh ground cloves and wormwood capsules.
If your doctor prescribes ant parasitic meds, get good quality clove buds, grind them yourself and take a table spoon 3 times a day. Clove kills parasite eggs, conventional meds do not. Olive leaf does not kill most parasites though it will help kill the bacteria and viruses released by dead parasites."
04/18/2012: Pattymint from Austin, Tx: "Hello, I have been having some intestinal issues since last September. Here are my symptoms: My stomach often makes growling and moaning noises, there is alot of crawling and itching around my anus. I feel like it is some parasite because whenever I shake my body, I feel crawling up my butt followed by immediate growling in my gut. Most nights I can't sleep because of the crawling sensation and I sometimes feel crawling on my scalp and under the soles of my feet. Also, sometimes I have excessive burping.
I have been to the doctor several times and taken one stool test. They don't know what is wrong. They just look at me as if I have made up the entire thing. I have taken mebendazole and albendazole to treat for pinworms. I have taken Reese's and Pin X and eaten tons of yoghurt, papayas, pumpkin seeds, pomegranate seeds, diatomaceous earth, AC V, vegetables and eaten tons of garlic. I even did a colonic but these things won't go away!
Currently, I am taking a combo of wormwood, black walnut and cloves in tincture form. I have been taking this for 8 weeks and my symptoms have been slightly reduced. Please tell me what kinds of parasites this sounds like. My boyfriend also got infected and we are both miserable! We live in separate apts. But do frequent laundering of sheets etc in hot water and practice frequent handwashing until it has become an obsession. Please help us!
Also, a couple times, I have seen stringy things that look like bean sprouts in my stool but the stool test was negative.
Thanks for keeping this site going!"Replies
04/19/2012: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Pattymint, you may also try Zapping and supplementing L-Cysteine as recommended by Hulda Clark. And also consider whole body detox as any heavy metal or environmental toxin will allow unstoppable reproduction of parasites by way of enzyme induction and immune dysfunction. Remove harmful household chemicals as well as body products; no isopropyl alcohol."

04/16/2012: Jamie from Rayong, Thailand: "Hey there, First I noticed that Ted is from Bangkok.. Does he have an office there? I live a couple hours away, but I was wondering if he knows anywhere I can get tests done to see what parasite(s) I'm dealing with. I've had giardia before and from what I remember I'm experiencing similar symptons: nausea, no-appetite, pain in the upper central abdomen, diarrhea, lethargy..
I had coconut water only and water for 24 hours and took diatomaceous earth, a liver support supplement, and an intestinal drawing supplement. In the evening, I had a minor appetite and took some bites of pumpkin with coconut milk and then I was almost puking 1.5 hrs later.. I've also been doing enemas with colloidal silver and fulvic acid and minerals.
Looking for some advice!
Thank you, jamie"
