Thank you for replying to my post and much more for your words of comfort! Today I was lying outside to get some sun and started crying wondering if I would be dead by next year, I thought if I had parasites in my heart that would probably be a death sentence! But tears are healing too so after a while I felt a little better and got online and did a search about "heartworms" here and feel more hopeful now if that were really the case.
I don't know if I have a "bad case" of parasites or not because I've done cleanses before, eaten lots of raw garlic (for other purposes), eaten a lot of raw coconut, drank coconut milk and the oil, which I also use in cooking, plus other things that are supposed to keep parasites in check. Also, I've had problems with mold which I thought were "candida", and maybe it's part of it, but since I live in FL and last couple of places where I've lived have had some mold to which I reacted I know the spores I inhaled took "residence" in my sinuses and probably other places. I began to realize that was my main problem as far back as '03 during a long trip overseas visiting my parents because after a while I began feeling well and lost weight effortlessly. The last time I felt just wonderful was in '07 after a similar trip but 3 weeks after returning home, pretty much like previous times, I regressed. Last year I was away for 4 weeks but they were so stressful (my Mom was dying) that the only real benefit was losing 10 lbs., but come think of it despite the grief after she passed in September, when the weather got cooler here in Oct. I didn't feel as bad as I do know. Well, I did notice a couple of years ago that the long FL summers were really miserable for me anyway so I'm not surprised that this one is equally bad.
But precisely because of those trips overseas I should've done a parasite cleanse months ago and didn't. I now read that mosquitoes can transmit "heartworms" and I got eaten alive during the day (I slept with a mosquito net) for the first couple of weeks. I began rubbing my arms and legs with Vick's Vaporub to ward them off and then I found a natural anti-bug spray I'd taken there on a prior trip. I rinsed my veggies and fruit while I was down there with water with some Lugol's iodine in it and hoped that would kill any parasites eggs but I did eat out once and, anyway, there were lots of people coming in the house who could've brought them too, and even here because the climate is so warm I'm sure there are many more people infested with parasites than the one could ever imagine, plus my diet was not the best at all times. I'm hypoglycemic so I've struggled with sugar cravings on/off for years and I'm sure I've been "off the wagon" longer than on, plus I used to have amalgam feelings and never did proper chelation and all that can foster the growth of parasites and/or fungi.
At this point I'm afraid to eat any more pumpkin seeds, at least by themselves, but I will not do Humaworm because I've been reading about it on/off for over 2 years here and it seems to me lots of people have bad reactions to it AND it's not as effective as some think either. Someone recommended the Barefoot Herbalist's "dewormer" but I went to their site and didn't see anything by that name, just separate tinctures or a very costly kit, so no thanks. I'll just probably order freeze dried walnut hull powder (to put in capsules I already have) and non-irradiated cloves but probably no wormwood, unless I can get a kind that doesn't give weird neurological symptoms, plus a cheap zapper - I read it's really good for getting rid of heartworms, so "just in case".
Right now I'm on a low-carb diet pretty close to Doug Kaufmann's anti-fungal Phase One so I'm eating lots of veggies and, ugh, let's not talk about supplements, at last count including the EVCO I take, do O/P and cook with, and miscellaneous reserve extra bottles, I had over 80 of them, quite a few I bought hoping they'd be "it" but stopped taking them for one reason or another. Then recently I read more about magnesium stearate and stearic acid in most supplements and many of mine had both. I'd started buying everything I could in powder form precisely to avoid fillers because I just "knew" they couldn't be good but I still had plenty of bottles of tabs & caps so I was really mad about that and I'm taking a lot less stuff now and continue to move on to more powders and liquids as I need to reorder.
At one point I was considering the drugs but a while of reading at that "other" forum and exchanging a couple of e-mails with a winner in the parasite battle totally made me change my mind about that as it appears they can even make the problem worse sometimes.
I know my immune system is overworked and my liver slow to detox, which is probably the real reason why my symptoms were so bad, and I'm constantly working on helping it, as well as my adrenals which have been working overtime for years and years. Some of the things I take (when I remember...) are a powdered probiotic (similar to Garden of Life's), NAC, Triphala, an herb-vitamin complex for the adrenals, lecithin granules, 2,500 mg Vit. C (in addition to what's in the adrenal complex), selenium, zinc, Vit. A, D, E, etc. Due to how much I've already wasted on supplements I'm going to go easy on them from now on (even though I'm about to place a new order at Vitaglo.com...) and pass on the green superfood for now - GoL products are not exactly cheap...
I'd been skeptical about the zapper but I finally decided that I should give it a try and because money is tight I'm just going to go with a cheap one. I'd placed an order for the $10 zapper but after seeing one a little better for $15 at eBay I cancelled the order. Now I realized neither comes with hand-holds or anything so I may have to spend a little more to get them but I sure need to do something, that's all I know!
My heart just hasn't been quite the same since Saturday and that's what's got me concerned. At times I don't feel my hearbeats but like now it's uncomfortable in my chest and being in front of the computer for a few hours doesn't really help so I'm going to try to get off here pretty soon. Thanks again and God bless!
P.S. I just saw the psalm you quote in your profile, I guess at some point we must've gotten away from God's refuge because "plagues" have definitely come to our dwelling. But we have to trust that by Jesus' stripes we are healed!
