Hello, After clearing systemic candida infection, I was then diagnosed with multiple parasites all over my body - heart, liver, kidneys, gut etc. This was no surprise since candida had really weakened my immune system.
Finally, my herbalist recommended golden seal powder, with strict instructions for me to use it 1 teaspoon per cup for one week, then 3 weeks off.
I followed the instructions and immediately and by the end of the week, my bones were extremely painful. The pain lasted for about 3 months, during which I stopped all exercises. I knew that my bones were infected, so this pain was a sign that the golden seal was killing the parasites in my bones. I still took the golden seal as recommended. However, in the 4th month, after the pain subsided, I took 2 teaspoons in a pot of tea holding 3 cups which I refilled each day for a week. (Poured 1 cup out of the pot, then poured 1 cup hot water and let it sit for 24 hours).
The next month, I used 3 teaspoons of goldenseal in the same pot as took the tea as in month 3 above. This cleared all the parasites I had.
Let me add at this point, that I also used the same dosages for wormwood, black walnut leaves and cloves. I had been using the last 3 for months will slow but sure progress. Goldenseal quickened the parasite cleanse.
The other side effect during this time was sleeping way too much. The sleep was good though. I needed it to not feel that pain.
