So I've been reading about parasites in humans, and being weird I've decided I'm going to try some of the natural remedies for them to see if anything comes out noticeable in my stool.
There are many alleged symptoms of parasite infections, the following apply to me to varying degrees (mind you lots of things could apply to these symptoms).
Rectal itching, especially at night
More than one vaginal yeast infection
Sores on the mouth or lips or white spots inside mouth
Difficulty sleeping and waking up
Toe fungus or athletes foot
Bloating and gas
Food cravings, especially for sweet or starchy foods
History of antibiotic use
History of steroid use including inhalant or asthma medication
Floaters or spots in the eyes
Muscle or joint aches
Constipation or diarrhea
Use of fluoride or consumption of fluoridated water
History of high sugar/carbohydrate consumption
That being said, the following are some common alleged treatment methods for them:
Diatomaceous Earth - Diatomaceous earth is basically fossilized diatoms, they are essentially microscopic fossilized plankton with jagged edges that are used as a very effective insect killer (they work into the exoskeletons of insects causing them to dehydrate and die, I've regularly used the stuff against ants, all they have to do is walk across a line of it and game over man) and many farmers swear by the stuff for ridding their livestock of worms. The claim is they work similar on parasites in your digestive tract while not damaging your insides. Ok great, let's try it. BUT you can't just get any DE, you want one that is food grade, YOU DO NOT WANT THE POOL FILTER STUFF. For Food graid I found Nature's Wisdom Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth 1 lb (they have larger quantities but I opted for 1lb to start). It's a lot cheaper to buy 3lbs or more.
Black Walnut Hulls - These come from the... you guessed it, the black walnut tree (juglans nigra). Allegedly black walnut hull kills adults and developmental stages of at least 100 parasites. I opted for Now Foods Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex, 2-Ounce which contains BWH/W/C
Wormwood - This comes from the Artemisia shrub (artemisia absinthium) . Allegedly wormwood kills adults and developmental stages of at least 100 parasites. I opted for Now Foods Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex, 2-Ounce which contains BWH/W/C
Cloves - Common cloves come from the... you guessed it, the clove tree (syzygium aromaticum) and are unopened flower buds. Cloves Allegedly cloves kill the eggs. I opted for Now Foods Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex, 2-Ounce which contains BWH/W/C
Garlic - Garlic (allium sativa) is allegedly effective against roundworm, Giardia lamblia, Trypanosoma, Plasmodium, and Leishmania. A lot of people seem to prefer eating raw cloves but meh, that's not for me, I am not Andy Dick. I opted for Source Naturals Garlic Oil 500mg, 250 Softgels
As far as a protocol, this is what I'm doing:
Diatomaceous Earth = 2 heaping tablespoons twice a day.
Black Walnut/Wormwood/Clove = 1.6 ML a day (2 droppers full, 1 in the morning, 1 before bed).
Garlic = 4 capsules morning, 4 capsules evening with dinner.
Within a few days I noticed wispy candidas-like strands attached to my stool, a week in I've noticed a good deal more flatulence. I did notice ater 3 days in one bit of stool something that looked like a rice kernel... I don't eat rice but that doesn't mean it was a parasite either.
I've not noticed any x-files worth specimens like
yet though hahaha, hopefully I don't either.
