11/29/2010: Cheryl from Schwenksville, Pa.: "I am at my wits end!!! I was bitten internally "down there" a few weeks ago, and now have since had this feeling of what feels like "worms" slowly crawling around "down there" at different times. Part of me doesnt want to believe that a mite can invade a person's body internally, since what I've been told about mites is, they are air breathers, so I'm having a hard time believing that something crawled up inside me from "down there", bit me inside, and started laying eggs inside me. But that's what it feels like. I did not notice this biting inside me until the first few bites happened, and then that's when I noticed the "crawling, wormlike sensations on the inside of me.
I don't know if anyone else has had this happen to them or not, and I wanted to know if it's possible for mites to actually live inside someone. I'm scared!!! I don't want these things invading other organs inside me and making me deathly ill. Please don't tell me this is my imagination---I know it's not. I am prepared to take ivermectin for horses (diluted for me of course) just to kill what is living inside me!!! I want these things gone!!! I want them out of my body!!! I have gone to the E. R. twice for an internal exam with the scope, and they can't find them. But they didn't do any skin scrapings though to rule out mites. I need a mtitcide or something to kill them inside me and none of the drs that I have gone to believe that they re inside me.
Help!!! What do I do to get rid of them? I also would like to mention that I have lyme disease as well---could there be a link to the two? Please help me figure this out. Thank You,
Cheryl. My email is-----chevycars60(at)yahoo(dot)com."

08/27/2011: Lotusborn from Pahoa, Hi, Usa replies: "Hi Cheryl, I just had some similar problems: I have a LONG and painful history with worms, some of them simple pinworms. Some of them unknown for me and some also biting the inside of me. I DID take horsemedicine, over the counter drugs (all useless!!! ), ALL the natural stuff, of which "Clarkia" worked for a long time, but not any more.
Finally, tonight I ate blended Papaya seeds (1 cup of seeds blended with 2 small bananas) which is of peppery taste, but who cares when one feels tortured from the inside and attacked from the inside. I have had a rash around my butt and vagina and it hurt so much from all the stuff I tried as well. Anyway, google it and you will see, they did a try in Africa and over 75% people were cured using this method. You don't need expensive tests if this works."
11/07/2010: A from Christchurch, New Zealand: "I have had a long term problem with parasites and a digestion problem (gluten intolerant) my back and hips tend to go out of alignment really easily. I have taken the herbs like black walnut and wormwood and they haven't been effective. I get strange wriggling sensations throughout my body, my back and in my joints. I also have chronic fatigue. I figure that I either have malabsorbtion issues in my gut causing the symptoms or there are some really big parasites that have been there long term and won't leave.
I am only 46 and at times because of my back and joints going out of alignment easily I am feeling disabled and in a lot of pain at times. I have been sick since I had my daughter and when she was born they found parasites then. Until then I had never taken worm tablets. I have tried melbendazole but it doesn't do much good. I have found them in the toilet at times. Can ted or someone reccommend something that I can use to get rid of them. I have tried diatomaceous earth but I can't manage it because it is so constipating. I have fasted for three days on pineapples. I have eaten heaps of pumpkin seeds. So could Ted reccomend something to help me get well. I also get anaemia, dark under eye circles and a bloated stomach. I get joint pain too and sometimes an itchy bum. Anyway I'd rally appreciate some help here because I have struggled with this problem for over 15 years. Thanks"Replies

Awhile back I tried a low-carb diet, back pain disappeared, digestive pain disappeared... Returned to eating more carbs, problems returned. I recently had stool analysis done & they found blastocystis hominis, which thrives on me eating grains.... Recently came across a book which makes a connection between digestive issues, back pain & starch "IBS Low-Starch Diet" by Carol Sinclair (a NZer btw).

Blastocystis. Hominis is one of the most stubburn protozoal infections. Jackie the lady whp built badbugs.org took her almost 10 years to get rid of this bug. The only thing that seems to work is a pharmaceutical combo of 3 antibiotics ( Nitazoxanide, Secnidazole and furazolidone for 2 weeks).

09/22/2010: Tom from Regina, Sk replies: "Tommy:
I'll assume for this you've tried among other things her most famous fix, the black walnut hulls (when green)?
While they may have specific potent molecules in their hull, just as essential oils have unique molecules, it appears the reason the hulls are so potent in a tincture is that they contain iodine! So you might try going the straight Iodine route, LUGOL's or other tincture or even SSKI.
Here is Earthclinic's link for that:
Here's an article on the black walnut hulls:
It mentions the potent juglone molecule that is strongly active against parasites. Or you could try some essential oils. They're almost all highly anti-parasitic.
09/22/2010: Tommy from North York, On, Canada replies: "Hi Tom,
Thank you very much for your reply. I have used the tincture (Black wall nut, wormwood, clove) and It does work for a week or so and then the bug developed a resistance and I got all the symptoms back. The problem with essential oils is that they get absorbed quickly from the stomach and get diluted. The essential oils will work only if they are in a slow release formulation. However, the majority of the products I found online are just sofgel capsules. I'm taking a lot of l-arginine to stimulate my murine macrophage. I have iodine liquid as well as potassium iodide. So far I didn't notice any benefit from the iodine against parasites. The only thing that gave me a brief relief was the tincture and then the bug became resistant. I also use Methylene blue, but it does not help me against the bug. Do you have any idea about other products that might kill the parasites?"
09/22/2010: Tom from Regina, Sk replies: "Tommy:
It is likely that the standard parasite killer "wormwood, cloves, ... " is not quite the right thing?
Wormwood is Artemesia absynthium, whereas Artemesia annua vera" is used even today against malaria, a particularly nasty pleomorph parasite! http://www.wellsphere.com/wellpage/artemisia-annua
Cloves is of course put in to kill specifically the egg stage of parasites. Artemesia and CloveTM contains; certified organic green walnut hull, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf, artemesia annua vera, artemesia absynthium (wormwood), fresh ground cloves, red clover, hericium, and wild American ginseng. Artemesia and CloveTM has proven (by over forty before and after stool tests with Dowell Labs) action against entamoeba histoltytica, blastocystis hominis, entamoeba hartmanni, cryptosporidium parvum, entamoeba coli, balantidium coli, dientamoeba fragilis, ascaris lumbricoides, giardia lamblia, chilomastix, and in some patients candida and other fungi. But it's not cheap Anywhere from $30-$60 for a 2-oz bottle, said to be good for 60 days.
Says in this article it'll kill in 2-4 weeks the 2 parasites you have:

08/24/2010: Iris from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "Try Green Black Walnut Hull (freeze dried, tinctures are good). I have read it is best to order it on the internet as there is probably a quicker turn over. A tip a Chinese doctor gave me once for herbs you buy on your own is for at least the first few days take 2-3 times the amount on the 'over the counter' herbal formula jar, as this amount is usually for maintenance. She said you probably wont notice anything unless you increase the amount. (Note: this increase is for the items you can buy on the market without a prescription). If you get a formula from a practitioner, herbal doctor, homeopath, etc. , they probably will make your formula as strong as it need to be. Google dr hulda clark's formula for this."

08/17/2010: Leerob from Gaborone, Botswana: "Today I came across this site after years of researching on hair loss. I am an African woman 42 years old with a medical history of hyperthyroid and taking 5mg carbimazole daily. I started losing my front line hair at the age of 28. I can literally feel the bugs feeding on my hair and its in a straight line, but since last year its more excessive, itching, painful, tickling crawling sensation on the scalp, hair roots with white things like small oval eggs which I suspect is some kind of parasite. For the whole year I been to doctors and been treated with only fungal creams and shampoos but does not seem to work. Just today I washed my hair with lice shampoo and applied apple cider vinegar. It was a painful burning sensation that made me cry, but I am up to my wit ends with this hair cure obsession I can take any pain. Sometimes I feel bumps behind the ears not pain but most after I have used something strong and it dissapears after some days. I have shaved my hair, tried all the remedies on the net. Home even from the chemists to no vail. Have used minoxidil for years without any positive results , have used everything from my kitchen, garlic, pure aloe gel, lemon juice, black pepper you name it. Thinking if I can eat it, it cant harm my scalp. I am in panic of loosing my whole hair. May I am overdosing or not mixing enough of all these concoctions that some smell so bad my family has had enough. Please help as I can't get borax in my country. What can I substitute it with. I have spend so much money in this quest to find a cure. With this site I seem finally to have arrived at the right place. This scalp problem has taken control of my life. Help PLEASE!!!!!

09/27/2010: Misselizabeth from Edmonton, Alberta replies: "Hi Leerob,
I'm so sorry to hear about your struggle. I don't know what you've tried, but remedies based on home ingredients may not work. I will suggest a couple things:
1) Hydrogen peroxide - it may bleach your hair and skin (I assume you are dark), so it depends if you are willing to walk around with that for a while.
2) CLOVES - they are known to be very effective at treating parasites. If you can get powdered cloves in bulk, then you may want to try to make a paste, and use is as a mask for your scalp. Try it first in the morning for 30min and see how it feels. Then continue for a week to see if it has helped. Combine this topical use of cloves with the internal use. Clove capsules are also available. If you can't find them locally, perhaps you can order some.
3) Black Walnut and Wormwood are also popular parasite remedies. When you use a remedy on your hair, leave it on if it is safe to do so, and apply at least three times a day. If the problem is under the surface you may need to saturate your scalp with something stronger, or use extend treatment periods (you can put a paste in your hair and wrap it before going to bed). Don't do this with peroxide, though! The biggest issue with your situation is that you don't exactly know what it is that has infected you, so you must continue with the trial and error process. Usually there is a solution with parasites. You just have to find the right one! Anyway, I hope this helps you. Please post and let me know if it works. Cheers:)"
07/09/2012: Lisa from Ocean View, Hi replies: "For parasites in skin - probably some sorta arthropod or similar bug- especially if you Feel crawing about...
Here is My CHEAP & easy cure:
Try SALT packs and Salt rubs. They are very sensitive to SALT and die fairly easily. just take a shower, to wet the skin & hair rub in salt, let air dry, or go to bed and sleep with the salt on the skin? wash off in the morning and repeat every other day for a few weeks.
If you have a nest of them deep in the skin, (so the salt can not reach it) try heat - they die if exposed to 130 F. for 20 minutes. I use my coffee cup - it is hot and just apply it on & off to the spot for half an hour, to keep it very warm- makes the skin red but don't burn you don't want to get a blister - just keep it very warm. if you have a hot water bottle & can regulate the temperature closer that would also work.
Use the dryer on high for 30 min to kill any on clothing or bedding."
05/21/2009: Lizette from Toa Baja, PR: "Parasites???
Some time ago I started feeling some tingling on my toes. Few days later I started feeling like needle pinches inside my body (legs and arms) and one day I woke up with what it seemed some rare bites (two minusculous red dots together) and days later like tiny cuts or scratches particularly on the front of my arms, feet and legs but mostly on my arms.
I went to the doctors but everything came negative in urine, blood and stool labs. They cannot treat what they cannot diagnose. I have heard that many parasites or pathogens don't show up in lab tests. The one I have is affecting my skin. I tried permethrine to no avail. However my problem is coming from the inside of my body and not from the outside. I can feel them moving inside me. I work a lot in the yard with soil and cleaning up my two dogs mess, this is why I am suspecting that I got something from out there.
I have heard about a remedy containing black walnut, cloves and wormwood that kills all sort of parasites or pathogens. I heard also about an iodine that can be drank that kills all pathongens. I have put some iodine externally on the injuries and they healed almost immediately, but I know and I can feel that the problem is inside my body and that is why I continue getting them. Please help, I am desperately looking for a cure. Thanks."
05/21/2009: Anonymous from Anonymous, USA replies: "From MSM Miracle:
One of the most amazing discoveries on MSM is its anti-parasitic action against Giardia, Trichomonas, roundworms, nematodes, Enterobius and other intestinal worms (5). Animal studies include laboratory mice, determined to have pin worms (Enterobius) by fecal cast examination. They were given commercial food and drinking water, both containing 2% MSM by weight. After 17 days, fecal examination indicated the feces were free of worms and eggs. The blood level of MSM in one animal examined exceeded 30 ppm or mg/kg (3). Human studies include a man with confirmed Giardia lamblia, apparently contacted from contaminated water in a primitive area. He was given 500 mg MSM three times a day for 14 days. By the eighth day he was free of symptoms, and two stool specimens collected one week later were free of the organism (3). In another study, Trichomonas vaginalis was successfully treated by oral dosage of 1 gram MSM a day, and a daily topical application of 5% aqueous MSM for one week (3).
The major antiparasitic property of MSM is probably caused by its ability to bind to the mucosa and present a natural blocking interface between hosts and parasites. It's as though MSM puts down a coating on the mucosa, which parasites find impenetrable and can't cling to. Unable to stick, the parasites are simply flushed out of the body (5, 9). In vitro research has shown the antiparasitic, antifungal and antibacterial action of MSM concentrations. MSM concentrations of 1 mg/mL and less demonstrated no significant inhibition of Giardia lamblia. However, at 20 mg/mL concentrations it was strongly inhibitory, and concentrations above 40 mg/mL promptly killed the organism. According to Dr. Herschler, one can safely administer up to 1-2 gram MSM per kg body weight on a daily basis. One therefore builds a safely tolerated blood level up to 4000 ppm (mg/kg), which level is highly toxic to many infective organisms yet is harmless to the host (3).""

It gets better then gets much worse and feels like it spreads beyond the GI tract. Good results with natural products but they don't eliminate the problem. Daily intake of reputable anti-parasite remedies have become ineffective. Do I need albendazole? Looks like ascaris. My MD and GI doc didn't believe me and wouldn't test the samples I brought them.

The best idea would probably be powdered fresh cloves. Just the bud, not the stalk and use a pestle to crush the buds. Keep doing it, using your judgement. The very smell of fresh cloves kill the eggs. However, adding wormwood tea tree times a day in a jigger or using wormwood/black walnut tincture for some time would be a good regimen.
Colloidal silver water works very well. It needs to be used for a month or more; the worms will be killed in the eggs. Use all and create a protocoll. Parasites are vicious creatures that take the joy out of life and can kill pets easily and cause many symptoms in people. A miserable affliction. My feeling over the years is that most people have parasites but are in denial. Parasites are everywhere. After the treatment take one teasp. turmeric and a teasp. whey powder in six oz. water to repair the damage done internally. Do for a little while as this treatment has many benefits.
Colloidal silver has to be taken in larger amounts, say, three fluid ounces. Best to make your own. Os"

If you feel peculiar on the amount that you are taking cut it back a bit, but in the old herbal, it says all of the plant is beneficial for clearing out worm infestation the yellow flowers and tops even better .. about an ounce is steeped in boiling water overnight and four tablespoons if taken spaced througout the day should clear them out.
The ancient romans and and even up to modern times, it was used to consume vast amounts of food without feeling sick, its also increases the flow of juices in the body and is a good nerve tonic. You'd need to ingest a lot of the natural plant to overdo it, but you say you are using the capsules, if they are pure thujone, it might be wise to check the dose and strength.

Colloidal silver protects all organs and once the treatment is over, use turmeric in powdered whey to repair the damage. (one good teasp. each).

04/19/2013: Share from Seattle, Wa: "Schistosomiasis - Cause for many Diseases
Recently, one of my Uncle's best friends died of MS. The family wanted an autopsy since they disagreed with the MS diagnosis - findings: Schistosomiasis infection.
His Doctors did not perform a proper workup (very common today): history, differential diagnosis, physical and labs. This infection can be definitively diagnosed by many tests (stool smear, urine concentration tests, blood tests, Antibody detection, ELISA, PCR, tissue biopsies: e.g., liver; colonoscopy, cystoscopy, endoscopy). They did not listen to him.
Years ago, the young man, an engineer, worked in Africa building water wells as mission work. He picked it up from contaminated water. Schistosomiasis is far more prevalent in the US than truly appreciated. It is a Trematode, commonly called a "fluke". Snails are the carriers. The parasite penetrates the skin.
Disease occurrence: Asia, South America, Africa, Carribbean, Middle East or, anywhere where there are freshwater snails (NW!).
Risk factors: water snails, contaminated drinking water, bathing or swimming in contaminated water, urine, feces, sewage, international travel.
Many cases of MS, Transverse Myelitis (with flaccid paraplegia), Bladder cancer, CNS lesions, Cerebral granulomatous disease, male menstruation, Plumonary or Portal Hypertension, and Cystitis or ureteritis are various forms of Schistosomiasis - differrent species at different stages of the infection. Many people contract the parasite here in the U.S. - the carrier snails are here. There was a nice article in the Seattle Times regarding the dangers of Snails in the NorthWest. Remember, there are many different types of Schistosoma species (e.g., swimmer's itch).
Hepatic Schistosomiasis is the 2nd most common cause of Esophageal varices, worldwide.
1. Praziquantel (Biltricide) - X2/day, for three days. Repeat in 1-2 weeks? I've read it is more effective if given with oral Castor Oil.
2. Oxamniquine (intestinal form)
3. Metrifonate (urinary form)
4. Mirazid, an Egyptian drug made from Myrrh. A combination of resin and volatile oil of myrrh (from the stem of Commiphora molmol(, at a dose of 10 mg/kg of body weight, daily, for 3 days. Check for eggs in 2 months, if present repeat for 6 days. Am J Trop Med Hyg 2001;65:700-704, Sheir Z, et al. A safe, effective, herbal antischistosomal therapy derived from myrrh.
6. Alinia (Niclosamide): 2/day for 30 days. Rest 2 weeks and repeat.
There is an acute and chronic presentation. Above all, it is a chronic disease with many symptoms.
ACUTE Sxs: fever, chills, abdominal pain, cough, diarrhea, muscle aches, Eosinophilia, fatigue, itchy skin, hives, skin rash, papular dermatitis (where parastie penetrated skin), liver symptoms.
CHRONIC Sxs: continuing infection can cause granulomatous reactions and fibrosis in affected organs : kidneys, bladder, brain, liver, colon, lungs, portal vein, spleen. Major complications: hypertension, seizures, bacterial infections, urinary obstruction, organ destruction, death."Replies

03/15/2014: Timh from Ky, Usa replies: " Mary: My apologies for not responding to your earlier post as I have found it takes me at least one day of musing to make an appropriate response.
My case is certainly an exception to the majority of infestation cases, due to a severe and chronic environmental illness. These type conditions are perfect environment for systemic and hyperinfestations including eggs & cyst.
If you have taken herbal cleanses w/ little or no progress you will also need to do some whole body detox. Zapping will also be necessary. Garlic and Oregano concentrates will help w/ the traditional herbal de-wormers. Turpentine will prove effective mostly in the gut (in my experience). Turpentine whole body hot bath may be best for systemic infestations.
As for tapeworm in particular, I got lucky using vegie oil infused w/ grapefruitseed concentrate administerd rectally by fleet enema. I used this remedy once or twice daily for several months until one day, immediately fallowing administration my lower back tightened and pulled (which was usually normal for a minuet or two) for several minutes until I felt & heard a "pop". Less than 10 minutes later I passed 2-3 ft beef tapeworm. This was in 2011, and whether or not I removed the entire worm I don't know, as they can burry their heads/suckers deep into the intestinal wall. Fast forward to 2014 and I still have a swollen jaw from the tapeworm cyst. I can tactilely identify 2 cyst in each jaw. I have made this case to two dr's and was ignored and neglected. My best conclusion is the beef tapeworm or Cysticercus bovis also called beef measles. Beef Tapeworm (Taenia saginata). I am somewhat certain that this exposure was from eating a fast-food burger of which I can distinctly recall as undercooked. The beef carcass are supposed to be frozen for a number of days so as to kill these parasites, but these standards are subjected to local unrule.
The standard and only proven med for these cyst is Albendazole (which you can purchase for your pet). I have also been zapping directly over the affected area and it seems I am finally beginning to see a shrinkage from the swell. These cyst are rarely painful but sometimes and only briefly cause some discomfort. The big detriment of these cyst is they produce toxic Malonic Acid and pathogens which lead to nutritional deficiencies, cellular degradation, and chronic fatigue.
If you are inconclusive as to whether or not you have tapeworm cyst, try taking recommended amounts of Succinic Acid (as it neutralizes the Malonic Acid) in which you should notice improved energy or lessened fatigue. Methy donors like B-12, Folic Acid, DMG or TMG are also recommended. Also, as mostly a current hypothesis, the use of Nattozymes or Serrazimes may help remove the protective barriers of any stage parasite or pathogen. I have recently doubled my dose and am experiencing very good results.
Please post back with updates or particulars as to your condition. "

06/29/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "My brother had a tape worm when he was a child. Although I was very small I remember my mother giving him coconut milk and the very long worm coming out. She stretched it in the bath tub and it covered the whole length."
03/18/2013: Om from Hope, B.c. Canada replies: "In a book on coconut it was mentioned that they got a tapeworm finally by using a lot of coconut oil internally. (No details given). Also chewing the insides of a freshly opened coconut will help to expel much and clean the g.i. tract. These are healthy means, no poisoning involved.
For use in worm extermination protocols as well as daily usage there is an Ayurvedic remedy for regularity which I have used for many years. The remedy works forever and actually rejuvenates the g.i. tract. The ingredients are three fruits, one of them the marvellous Amla which has more vit C, actually eighteen times than a lemon. You are going to be very regular with well formed stool and this TRIPHALA compound also treats the runs simultaneously. It does not taste that good but one can add honey. This medicine was my rescue as since a small child I always had problems with elimination. Triphala is used in many ayurvedic compounded meds. And it is invaluable for any age. No western doctor was able to help, always advising laxatives which did not work. Triphala (tri=three, phala=fruit) is quite affordable in powder or pill form. It is my no. One meds. in addition to some other non injurious herbs/powders. Triphala is cleansing and rejuvenating at the same time which is rare in the plant world. This should be included in daily usage, protecting the g.i. tract. Om"

Hello am writing because many of the remedies found here have helped me, and i have found encouragement for my depression, i would like to write about how much your site has helped me, but right now my energy is limited.
I don't know when it started but it's affected me in many ways. At first i felt a strange sensation in my neck, but i ignored it, and then i felt a strange sensation in my back it felt like a worm was crawling under my skin it felt disgusting, but i thought i was loosing my mind, and ignored it, but now i can't anymore.
I have constant headaches, and i feel something that feels like a worm, not one but around 5 some smaller than others (I know it sounds crazy)I did some investigation around the net and found this http://emphysician.blogspot.com/2007/10/blog-post.html, so i thought--huh i may not be so crazy--anyways its been weeks and the pain has gotten ten times stronger, i don't know what to do anymore, is there a cure for this!!!"
EC: The following website suggests sesame oil for Neurocysticerosis: http://www.mamaherb.com/Treatments/View.aspx?id=4005

02/09/2009: Carla from San Francisco, California replies: "Thanks so much for the response. Today was the first day that i used the sesame oil, and i could feel that it instantly worked. I wasn't sure what type of sesame oil i should use, I have a bottle of coldpress sesame oil so i used that one. What is the specific kind that i have to use? And also I am positively sure that i have intestinal parasites. I've read that tape worms lay eggs in the small intestine, rectum i think that's what's its called, and if so will ACV work to get rid of them? Again thanks for the fast response. My mom was suffering from back pain, and she used coconut oil and the pain instantly went away. Thank you so much for the helpful remedies on this site."

For the last couple of days the sesame oil has worked wonderfully, but i still have the sensation of worms crawling in my head, and i can also feel them in my neck. Yesturday i couldn't take anymore and went to the doctor. I told them about how i was having constipation and how everytime i went to the bathroom this tiny white round balls or whatever you wanna call it appeared in my stools, and how i often crave sweets, I lost wait so fast i think i've become anemic, I feel weak and tired and these headaches just keep getting worse. i can feel this things around my eyes, and my eyes are sensitive to light, i feel this terrible pain in my knees, but what bothers me most is the crawling worms in my head. I told the doctor about all these, and i asked about T. solium, he told me that we don't have such a thing in the U.S. He looked at me like i was crazy and told me to go see a doctor for depression. I feel worse everyday and i don't know what to do. i am loosing weight fast, and nothing that i eat fills me up. I go to the bathroom every three days, or every week. I feel miserable and i really don't know what to do. My parents are concern and i really don't know what to tell them. Does anyone know a natural cure for this, without the awful side-effects of epilepsy. PLEASE I NEED HELP WITH THIS!!!!"
02/24/2009: Caroline from Blaricum, Noord Hollan, the Netherlands replies: "Hi Carla, You can find help in the book (as mentioned above) 'The cure for all diseases' by Dr. Hulda Clark. She has cures for all sorts of parasites, she also developed an electrical instrument called the'Zapper' whith which you can destroy parasites and worms with different frequencies you can order it on her site. Maybe there is some practitioner in your neighborhood who can help you? Try the parasite cure with the Black Walnut tincture, the Cloves and Wormwood capsules as described in her book. I do not think you are crazy!
Wish you the best!"
04/13/2009: Kelly from Cairns, Australia replies: "Carla, did you ever find something to help you get well again? I hope so. I just wanted to mention that my husband and I both did a 3 month intestinal cleanse last year. We used _____. It has a ton of different herbs that help to get rid of parasites, and the fiber helps you go very easily. We were amazed at what we passed. I particularly thought of it for you because you are having trouble with constipation. It's really not good to go for so long between bowel motions because the waste in your system can be what is causing you some of your other health problems.
The amounts we used were 1 tsp. in 1/2 cup of grape juice twice per day. After a week we went up to 2 tsp. and then up to 1 Tablespoon starting the third week. It doesn't taste very nice, but we stuck with it because we started seeing results in the first couple of days.
We got the information on cleansing parasites from _____. Maybe it will help you too."
09/19/2009: Shoronda from Freehold, Nj replies: "Hi Carla, I am going through the same thing you are with the worms in my head. I first saw one crawling underneath my skin and up my neck into my head around 2002 when I was trying to do a home cleanse. I'm assuming the herbs in my stomach drove them to other organs including my head when they were trying to escape for their lives. I know now that before doing any parasite treatments you need to do a complete bowel cleanse first, preferably colonics but if not at least 10 days of enemas. I had taken a home cleanse kit that was supposed to have cleaned the bowels but not to the extent I needed.
I went to several doctors; one did a blood test and claimed it was negative although I wasn't allowed a copy of it. Others told me the same thing as doctors told you about there being no such things as worms in the US and that I need to see a shrink.
After the 'negative' blood test I accepted that I must not have any worms. However I became very ill, fatigue, depressed and couldn't sleep at night. It affected every area of my life.
Then in Aug of 2008 I heard about the zapper and ordered one. Upon using it I felt what seemed like worms falling down in my head. The zapper must have stunned them. That was just the beginning. Since then I have tried everything and am still struggling.
I eventually cut out all meat, fish, fowl, and sugar, strickly vegetarian. And have tried every remedy I could find anywhere with minimal or temporary success since they seem to grow back once killed. I heard when they die they release their eggs and that you have to take cloves to kill the eggs or they just hatch later on and re-infect - which appears to be what has kept happening.
I believe I caught the pork tape worm from a sick person who made me a sandwich at a deli a few months before I became concerned about parasites in 2002. When I couldn't get a doctor to treat me I did the home cleanse, and that's when the scattering to my head occurred.
I tried MMS once and it seemed to have killed them but a week or so later I could feel them growing back. It appears that once I use something that kills them the next time I try to use it they are immune to it.
I took Reese's for Pinworms from the drugstore a couple days ago and it gave me a whole days worth of relief then I felt them moving across my head again. Tonight I brought some pine essential oil and although it was for aromatherapy I took a few drops internally in some oil. It gave me a few hours relief also and now I can feel some of them sluggishly moving in my head again but it also felt like some microscopic ones were crawling out of my ear and dying.
Anyone who has a real solution for this please help!
I am convinced the doctors know what is going on with these worms. Obviously if there were no such things as worms in the US they wouldn't be selling pinworm medicine over the counter. I have also heard that worms are the root cause of depression and that the medicine given to treat depression puts the worms to sleep, which gives temporary relief from the symptoms as long as you keep taking it. This is highly likely why they don't want to admit to or kill human worms oppose to livestock worms (follow the money). So they can keep selling their anti-depressant drugs among others. Like Hilda Clarks says, I believe worms are the root to all disease."

I used strong Chinese formulas may act a fumigation to the body to kill them. Wormwood, and clove tinctures are important to attacking life cycle,
3/4 tsp Sea salt in glass of water take this four times may cause parasite to die from dehydration, Get micro- current or RIFE treatment it kills parasites. Ozone or sterile hydrogen peroxide IV's.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand: "Yes in some cases the cause is the parasites. But once they leave, the candida is still there before it can be contracted. Biochemical analysis indicates a yeast and mycoplasma pathogens. Mycoplasma are fungus like organism. They tend to accumulate heavy metals. A great majority of people who have candida also have very high heavy metals or get regular vaccinations. The urinary excretion indicates abnormally high tartaric acid, indicating a high level of fungus toxins, which causes the intoxication. An additional of parasites aid in the proliferation of such conditions and therefore in some cases parasites, such as mites, bedbites, bird parasites can trigger it.
They are generally resistant to all forms of antibiotics as it forms symbiosis with heavy metals, thus the antibiotic cannot touch them as it causes the antibiotic to be instantly oxidized. The only way to kill them is to kill the parasites, if it exists, or mycoplasma, which always exists, or other related forms of pathogens. The other which is most important is to remove the heavy metals.
The big issue is that when the removal of heavy metal commences, marked herx can be seen. EDTA don't seem to cause Herx that much. To kill these pathogens, it is necessary to do an H2O2+EDTA therapy. Remove the heavy metals and yet, oxidized them with H2O2. To reduce the toxic byproducts of these critter, take plenty of malic acid plus baking soda to neutralized organic acid toxins.
The taking of interval small doses of H2O2+EDTA every hour for 12 hours should result in some improvement. Acetyl Carnitine, N-Acetyl-Cysteine and sodium ascorbate taken in large doses, especially the Carninitine and sodium ascorbate (alkaline form vitamin C) seems most helpful. Candida is a condition caused by the body's immune system being suppressed as a result of chemical toxins (fluoride, chlorine, alloxan in white flour, monosodium glutamate, ethylene dibromide from chemtrails), vaccination(methyl mercury, living mycoplasma) , and special mycoplasma which are designed to suppressed the immune system.
The most effective antidote for the suppressed immune system is to eliminate or detoxify the cause. The use of malic acid (usually found in apple cider vinegar or taken separately) will not eliminate them but will reduce the toxicity. Sodium thiosulfate will detox many toxic chemicals, borax will detox the fluoride.
Sugar is the obvious issue to control, but alloxan found in the white flour is the real cause.
The extensive use of antibiotics will make the condition of candida much worse because it reduces heavy metal excretion, which is a food source for the yeast like organism and also killing the beneficial bacteria at the same time. I suspect a regular dose of sodium perborate (200 mg) might be best in counteracting the parasite issues or perhaps a sodium perborate bath. This is just my opinion.
I can't cover the cures for candida at the moment because I am a bit busy now. But I am sure that the information I gave you above should give you some clues as to the treatment. Just remember: the real cause is your immune system is suppressed, either by commercial such as fungicide which causes a permanent suppression of immune system or by an organism (parasites or pathogens). Best way is to avoid, detox, and regenerate your immune system organs by homeopathy."
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand writes: "That day I was very busy! May I add more please? It was not a complete remedy. Here is the rest:
1. Take 700 mg of garlic extract. Never the powdered one, please! Kyolic garlic is o.k.
3. Magnesium chloride or Magnesium gluconate. 500 mg.
4. At LEAST 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. This will neutralize toxins and organic acids the body doesn't need.
5. Selenium to displace unwanted heavy metals caused by the candida.
6. To the drinking water put about 1/4-1 teaspoon of sea salt.
7. Take 500 mg. of sodum ascorbate.
This should be complete at least for now! One month you should show improvement. And remember, to alkalize and use H2O2! They are most important. Your skin complexion should clear up as a side benefit."Replies
