Thankfully my aching and those weird joint pains are gone. This transpired into sinus and throat congestion which seems to be caused by a yeast flare. I seem to have crackling in my ears, which is just another sign of mucus build up caused by yeast. So either I am flushing out parasitic junk from my respiratory tract or its yeast. Oil of oregano is helping with any congestion. That seemed to have last about a week but it is finally going away.

My son also seems to have gotten yeast out of nowhere and had a runny nose yesterday that’s gone now. I did notice he had a few irritable moody days as we got towards two weeks on the herbs. His loose stools were gone in only a few days. It seems the rest of us had it, a good 2 days and that’s finally subsided. Nothing really terrible, no cramps or anything. You just have to go like 4 times a day and it’s rather mushy.

Another super interesting thing I noticed was for a day my son was repeating words over and over and his echolalia reappeared which he hasn’t done for a long time. He had echolalia off and one when he was younger and it would go away and you wouldn’t even notice it until it came back. Kind of like that character Brick on “The Middle”, who is always repeating what he says in a whisper. My son was totally into word play that day; he’d choose a word out of nowhere and just keep saying it over and over. I asked him why and he said it was “fun”. Maybe so but it isn’t something he normally does or has done in years. The next day this was gone.
I would have never suspected that echolalia might be a parasite thing. He was also more sensitive to sound for a few days as I noted earlier but this seems to be gone now too. Cleanses can stress the adrenals and this may explain the sensitivity to noise.

On day 6 he was really all over the place and didn’t seem to listen to us that well. This passed and we moved on to other weird symptoms.
He got a red itchy blotch on his back near his shoulder and some odd-looking red bumps on his neck. He also complained about the outer corner of his eye burning. When I looked at it the skin was very red and a bit of swelling had developed under the eye. The eye itself was fine. Almost looked like an allergic reaction or bug bit except I can find any source for either one of those. I couldn’t even find anything online that looked like it or sounded like it. I thought maybe he rubbed it but he said he hadn’t, that it just started burning and itching out of nowhere.

Weirdly enough it went away on its own within a few hours. The rashly stuff is gone too.

Since he seems to have settled down in terms of Humaworm die off we started a round Monday. I didn’t want to postpone it any further. Round 153. He’s done fine so far, no symptoms to speak of.

Two more weeks of herbs……

My chelation is on hold for now due to adrenal problems again but that’s another long story for another website….lol

Spring cleaning….and I don’t mean the house

Cleaning

Oh so maybe third time is a charm with this blog post. I already wrote two fabulous posts then the internet farted and lost them. Oh joy.

We are doing spring cleaning and I mean more than just the house and yard. Most people clean out the garage, wash the windows and empty their closets. We do that too, but we also do a parasite cleanse in the spring and fall. Much like daylight savings time, except instead of setting the clock back and forth, we get to take herbs.

When I first learned about parasites I have to admit it was really gross. But it made sense why they would cause health problems. They are of no benefit to us but rather eat our supplements, food, and then…well…uh….err……release waste. I don’t want to be anyone’s toilet, thank you very much. These squatters set up camp in your body and live rent free. Well, it’s eviction time!

So far we are on day 3 and yesterday were a rather interesting. I was concerned how I would get my child to take the herbal powder since it’s so pungent. I’ll save the “why he won’t’ take capsules” story for another day. I decided that normally when I want him to take goldenseal which is also rather foul, I mix it into elderberry syrup and we squirt that down the hatch. So that’s what we will do with the parasite herbs. It worked. He doesn’t like it but he’s taking it without any physical force on my part. It will cost me of course if I want him to take it for 30 days. He has a price for most things he doesn’t like or want to do, and this time it’s a small transformer toy and some ice cream. I can live with that.

I wish someone would buy me something for taking my herbs like a good mommy. I know I am certainly not enjoying burping up garlicky pepper in the morning since you have to take it 30 minutes before food. But eh, no one said being a grown up was fun.

So far what we have to report are that it’s bothering my daughter’s gut and stressing her adrenals. Yep, she’s got buggers. Hubby just takes his “dirt pills” as he calls them and doesn’t say much. I am always hoping he doesn’t pass anything alarming or he might suddenly decide he doesn’t want to take them.

My son, well he’s had some rather interesting things to report. Yesterday which was only day 2 he was super sensitive to noise. While he’s always been a bit more sensitive than most, it was probably the most extreme I’ve ever seen. We were riding in the car on a humid 80 degree afternoon and I had the vent fan going because it was unjustly hot. To make my day more exciting the air conditioning decided it’s broken. Add that to the list of things I can’t afford to fix. So anyway, a few minutes into the fan blowing hot air on us and my son shouts out “Mom turn that thing off! It sounds like a herd of elephants stomping”. He reaches over and pushes off. Ok now it’s just hot, without a hot breeze. So I open the window and I am quickly informed that “it’s louder than a herd of stomping elephants”. I wasn’t aware anything was louder than that but I guess so. So now we are riding in a sweat box. Or as I call it an “Urban sauna”. Great.

As I reach over to check the map I had printed out to see which exit I need, he yells at me to “stop that paper rustling sound, it’s driving him crazy”. Then he reaches over and shuts off the radio. Silent, lost, urban sauna anyone? Oh, now I’m hot and angry. I tell him sensitive or not we need air, and I am not getting lost. So he tells me what exit it says so there’s no rustling and he agrees we can have the fan but on low.

Needless to say we made it to our destination. We enjoyed a wonderful 25 minute free sauna treatment, and he can read maps while I look at the road thankfully. I’ve no idea what this sudden flux in supersonic hearing means, but let’s hope it leads to something good when we’re done gulping down herbs in a month.

For me I’m going all out with the kitchen sink at my gut. I’m tired of feeling like someone spiked my food with an opiate drug anytime I get accidentally glutened. Then the subsequent skin outbreaks for the week, nope I’ve have had enough. Four years off gluten isn’t peaches. In addition to my humaworm, I’m taking aloe, bentonite, probiotics and I just finished goldenseal. Kill it all I say. Be gone critters, bacteria, funk…whatever you are. I need to absorb my iron, and maybe someday enjoy a piece of cake again.

Only three days in…..can’t wait to see what the rest of the week holds. Usually any fun symptoms appear in the first week and subside by day 10. The rest of the cleanse is usually a breeze. Let’s see if I can have the vent on in the car today.

Since we stared the cleanse this week, we have to wait to start a round.

So next week it’s onto 153 for son, 133 for daughter and 100 for me.
I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for reading.

Bugs you say? What about parasites?

Human parasites are something no one wants to think about. No one wants to admit that there are nasty little creatures barely visible to the eye that hitch a ride on our food or our hands and find a way inside us where they grow, reproduce and thrive. All the while sapping our health and eating our food.

When I first stepped into biomed no one was talking about parasites really. Gut bacteria, viruses, stuff like that, sure.  And the main focus was on supplements. Some parents had their kids on 60 different things a day with it making no difference other than going bankrupt paying for it all.

There seemed to be a lot of children with malabsorption issues. But why? Why aren’t our guts taking in our food? It’s not for lack of eating it usually.  So this begs many questions, like how can you have anemia for years even if you take iron?  Why when a family eats the same diet, does only one of them have anemia or magnesium deficiency?\

A few years into our biomed journey I saw an applied kinesiologist for another reason not related to my son or autism.  I ventured on this journey to see this unknown practitioner because of chronic facial pain that acted like trigeminal neuralgia. But my doctor said it was not.  Seriously painful like nothing I’ve ever had. I had seen a few doctors, and a few dentist and came up with no answers. So I looked elsewhere. I was led to this special man who seemed to have knowledge that no one did.

Something very surprising that came out of that $25 appointment and was completely unexpected was the suggestion that he thought I had a parasite in my upper right side of my colon.  He asked if I got pain there after eating.  I did. How could someone know this without doing any testing other than muscle testing? Beats me but I learned a lot of things in that $25 session that made me a believer of muscle testing and subsequently a believer in gut bugs.

When I arrived back home from our trip I starting researching parasites. What a shocking thing as it never occurred to me that I could have them. Let alone anyone really. Sure I knew dogs and cats got them, but for some reason it did not occur to me, that people do also. Certainly no doctors I’ve seen ever mentioned them.

I spent a lot of time reading up on them and how to kill them. And that began our first parasite cleanse. I didn’t really expect to see anything of course. But certainly our reactions indicated we were infected.  So all this time these buggers were eating all of our supplements and food.  No wonder I never seemed to be satisfied after a meal.

In any case both of my children did a parasite cleanse using black walnut hull, wormwood and clove tincture.  I used Humaworm which was a bit heavier but I didn’t want to throw it all the kids just yet.  But within a day or so of taking the herbs I could feel that it was doing something. I had a headache and I felt really weird. Not sick mind you, just really weird. My kids reactions were more profound.

My eldest became moody and weepy and neurotic. This lasted about 4 days before the symptoms went away. My son displayed some odd behaviors. The first few days he broke out with this odd rash near his knee. He also hid under his bed and refused to come out of his room. He would not leave the house and he was very moody and depressed. He told me he wanted to jump out of the window. (luckily his room is on the first floor) He was completely not himself.  I gave him more liver support and kept a close on eye him.  After his mood swing from hell he fell asleep in the middle of the day.  He woke up seemingly better. The rash cleared up, his mood normalized and he stopped waking up in the middle of the night.  By the time we finished the cleanse a stubborn wart on his heel had disappeared.

Following or on the cleanse my older child’s thyroid medication dose was cut more than in half. So I guess the parasites were eating her medicine.  Over the next few years we did cleanses twice a year or anytime someone had gut symptoms. Each time her thyroid medication dose would need to be dropped way down within a day or two of starting the herbs. Neither of them had such a profound reaction as they did that first time.  But anytime I see her thyroid dose creeping up higher I suspect it’s cleanse time.

What I do know about all this is that parasites affect your health in one way or another. Most people go their entire life and never cleanse. Their bodies must be full of bugs if my children have them.  Some say that parasitic infections are behind many diseases like colitis, IBS etc.

I think there’s a very good possibility they are right. And since cleansing for parasites is generally not harmful or difficult. It’s seems a worthy treatment. After all our veterinarians wants us to treat our pets four times a year. So why aren’t humans treated?

There are many reports all over the internet from parents doing different parasite protocols and seeing improvements in their children or their own health.  It seems an obvious source of illness that is over looked by modern medicine who somehow thinks that humans are so sanitary we can’t get parasites.  But I’ve seen how many people in the public restroom do not wash their hands after going to the toilet.  (ick)n So they might want to rethink that!

So before you spend a lot of money on supplements be sure the bugs are eating them all!
