"SC - Thank you so much for answering all my questions and boy do I have a lot, everyday, new things...."
It surely does get overwhelming, can't it? Just take what you think will be helpful for you and disregard the rest, okay? And remember, I am just giving my opinions, and you know what people say about opinions! It is just that we are all different.
"1. What is Lugol's? Never heard of it."
Lugol's is an Iodine
supplement. I've been taking it for nearly 2 years now. It has made many positive benefits in my life. From what I've read having enough iodine in the body also helps in destroying pathogens as they arrive in the body.
I started out real slow with this too. Began with kelp tablets (from the north sea), graduated to detoxified iodine, and then went to half dosing of Lugol's
and then on to a full drop of iodine daily. I haven't been doing the massive doses that some seem to want to do. I believe in slow and steady and not making myself sick.
I now put 2 drops into each gallon of milk and put a drop into our loaves of bread... I make our own bread.
I've recently read that MMS
can deplete iodine in our bodies. I don't know if that is true or not, but I do plan on slightly increasing my iodine intake while ingesting mms. It won't hurt any to do so.
The Iodine Forum
has lots of good information. As with any forum there is lots to wade through, but if you read all the R posts you'll find lots of good information.
With iodine supplementation I have been able to get off synthroid meds for hypothyroidism and I no longer have night blindness. Both of these have been blessings. There have also surely been more benefits that I'm not recalling right off.
"2. Did you do any flushes, enemas, or like salt water flushes, plain Liver Flushes
, like the ones on the humaworm websight....? OR was it the Castor oil."
Oh yes! The Castor Oil protocol was my choice for the Bowel Cleanse
as it also provided the additional benefit of removing parasites.
As an aside, I arrived on Curezone at the urging of my brother on the one year anniversary of my mother's death due to liver cancer. Somehow the first thing I read spoke to me because I had been having a particular difficulty and I found out it was my liver. I've been saying "a year old memory" because that is how long it's been since I've been here. I showed up here originally a little over two years ago.
"3. Did you do this only before Humaworm, or did you do it after? Are you going to do any more Humaworm?"
Yes, I did this before Humaworm. Lately I have been thinking of doing the castor oil again as well as doing some more Castor Oil packs... loved them!, and doing some liver flushing again since I am again feeling my liver a bit.
Been picking back up a few things here and there like drinking dandelion tea. Fell out of taking care of myself as much as I was due to an illness in the family and the distractions that that took.
I would do another round of Humaworm if I could. We have just become so poor! er... broke, rather. We aren't poor, just broke. :) (all prayers and or good thoughts towards us regarding this is very appreciated).
Anyway, with my plans to begin MMS that/Humaworm may not be necessary.
"4. well, pinworms, the main symtom is night time itching. Do you think you had that?"
Only on occasion. Never consistent and could have been a result of an over acidic condition.
"5. Do you think you still have them?"
I don't think so. Have none of the symptoms for them.
"6. Oh yes....did you get the Castor Oil protocal from Andre Moritz book? if so, which one? I want to get a good book. I heard he has a good Liver Flush
Yes I did. As a matter of fact before posting to you I spent a good amount of time trying to find where I got the information. I had two of his books downloaded.
Not long ago I had a hard drive death and was able to restore most everything, but it looks like I did lose one of his books. It may have been the liver flush book that was lost. I don't remember the name. (That'll teach me to have hard copy backups!)
Anyway, even though I could not reference the information, I decided to post to you with my experience.
"7. Have you taken Vermox (Mebendozole)? Drug for worms, like pinworms. I panicked and took some last Friday after the Humaworm was done, because I felt movement again. I had some extra..."
No, never taken any drugs for worms. I personally try to stay away from pharmaceuticals. Not to mention that I totally lost any faith I had remaining in the medical profession early in the year of 2001. (Even with knowing I had a serious problem within me, I decided/knew that they would kill me quicker than if I let nature take it's course.)
When did you finish your round of Humaworm? He says that the herbs will continue to work for 30 days, I think it is, after the protocol is completed.
"...Now I feel like I need to wait before doing any flushing....but I'm anxious to get on with the flushing!! So, not sure what to do."
From what I remember it is advised to do a bowel cleanse, a kidney cleanse
and a parasite cleanse prior to doing liver flushing. I did do them in order, but there are those who jump right into liver flushing. I probably should and could have done so too. But, hey! We are talking about MY body here, lol. It was already taxed and I didn't want to overtax it even more so I followed the recommendations.
It is a good idea to do a liver flush after the parasite cleanse. Might want to check over at the Humaworm forum for their advice on how much longer afterwards.
"8. If you are cured of the worms, then do you want to just try the MMS for preventative sake? I am really looking in to this also."
The preventative aspect of the MMS for worms is a plus, certainly! So far, over the past year, I have only been using MMS as a dental/mouth rinse, with only an occasional sip here and there. Since reading Tom's postings, I shall be using MMS for a far wider range of purposes as well as ingesting.
I have been mainly interested in the MMS for the artery cleaning aspect. From what I have read, it will really clean the arteries out! But, it is also VERY important to dose with high milligram Vitamin C prior to beginning the protocol to heal the veins near the heart of any cracks that have developed over the years, which is the reason for the cholesterol buildup in the first place... to protect the vein's ability to transport blood. Just over time it builds up too much.
Then there are other slight skin conditions I would like to have cleared up too.
"9. does the cocunut oil suppository with castor oil -was that from Andreas Moritz
No, lol, that may be original to me, HA! (Doubtful that I am the first to think of it.) Actually the idea came to me from reading about someone making boluses (suppository) with Lugol's and they used coconut oil for those. And, it just seemed to make sense to make boluses with the castor oil for THAT area to get the castor oil into direct contact with the pinworms... know what I mean?
"10. Just looking into purchasing theMMS. When you find out where to purchase it from, let me know."
I buy mine off ebay.
"thank you so much for all your help. I can use all the help I can get. This is so hard to just be my own doctor."
We all "practice" medicine... some just get paid for it and other's just get healthier for it.
"It's hard to make these decisions about where to turn next, and what to do."
Lots of research has always seemed to help me. Reading and reading and reading... until I understand and how I can use something to my most benefit without causing me trouble.
When I first arrived to Curezone, I had actually been thinking that I only had a few years left to live. I was in bad shape over the liver problem. So, having been so taxed physically at that point, I didn't want any more added on top of it. (Which is one reason why I hadn't begun the MMS ingesting yet... sounded like it would tax me too much.) But, I'm ready now, I believe.
"I am hesitiant about more herbs now, because HUmaworm says you'll get resistant, yet, Barefoot herbalist badmouths Humaworm saying he's a crook, and that that you don't get resistant to herbs....."
I always like to err on the side of caution. We can always continue on with the protocols and give them time to work. It is much more difficult to "repair" damage by going to fast. In my opinion. And, there are those who have hurt themselves by being in a hurry and who are still trying to repair the results of that impatience.
"Anyway,sorry so long."
I think we may be birds of a feather! Oh wait, wouldn't that be ??? hmmm, what IS that old saying?! LOL. Oh well, I always say: if you can't remember it, forget it! :)
All the best to you!
