Has anyone ever suffered any discomfort while doing a parasite cleanse. My son is 28 and using a wormwood product that has the Black Walnut , wormwood herb and quassia bark that Hulda Clark recommends. On the third day of the cleanse....he felt tremendous fatigue and malaise. My guess is that is a sign his body is detoxing? If anyone has ever experienced these side effects I would appreciate hearing from you.
He has not noticed any unusual stool color or shape, but his urine has turned very dark.
Chances are its a die-off reaction. The toxins released from dying parasites can be hard on the system causing headaches, extreme fatigue, joint pains, nausea and other symptoms. On the other hand, some people are allergic to the Wormwood. Keep a close eye on him especially for dizziness, black out spells or racing heart beats. I don't know about the dark urine, I've never experienced that, but the Black Walnut makes my stools much darker.
Thanks for your input. I find it interesting that one Dr can recommend the parasite cleanse first and another can recommend it last. Perhaps it all depends on the person doing the cleanse and their bodies state of health.
My son decided to continue with the wormwood by Kroeger Herb Products and this morning did feel better. I've reminded him several times to continue to drink plenty of water. I'm hoping the severe fatigue he had 2 days ago was a combination of die off along with his body adjusting to that new herbal mix that it had never seen before. If he goes another day without any significant symptoms perhaps that one day of horrible flu like symptoms will be an indication that the herbs did their job. I plan for him to do the OxypowderColon Cleanse next week and then start the Hulda ClarkLiver Flush procedure. I'm going to recommend that he start on a broad spectrum enzyme right away.....and after a couple of flushes I'll get him on a good Pro-biotic as well.
A good enzyme product is helpful in a parasite cleanse, my Naturopath had me take one on my first cleanse. I have ordered the product Rascal from Hanna Kroeger because I have a history of tapeworms. I'm hoping it will be effective, I've never used that brand of herbs before.
Right now I am doing a cleanse using products from the Herbal Healer Academy; Wormwood Plus, Intestinal Freedom and Oregano Plus. The owner of the company Marijah McCain recommended I also add the Rascal. (She is a Naturopath and Master Herbalist). The die off symptoms this time are much milder than my first time when I passed dozens of worms and several Tapeworm segments.
Its a good idea to go ahead with a Colon Cleanse and liver flush, you might also want to add a kidney cleanse, or you could get him to drink some Yogi Peach Detox Tea , a cup or two a day right now. Its good for both the kidneys and liver and will not interfere with other cleanses. Its available at health food stores or at http://www.yogitea.com
I agree with hopinso that it is probably die off reaction and to keep an eye on him.
Also be sure that he is drinking plenty of water to flush those toxins out of his system and to be getting extra rest.
When the body is overwhelmed by the dead and dying parasites and all of the toxins created by such then it will need extra rest so as to put more energy into removing the toxins and healing.
Some vitamin C might help too as I have read that it helps neutralize toxins and get them out of the system. I am doing a cleanse now and am taking vitamin C to help with the toxins. I also make sure to drink plenty of fluids and try to get extra rest.
With the extra water, extra rst and vitamin c I don't seem to get any really nasty reactions from all of the die off.
I so seem to get headaches while cleansing but I believe it too is from die off (it is possible it is from the wormwood though as now that I think of it, it only happens when I am on the cleanse with the wormwood and not while using the grapefruit seed extract or zapping).
I do know that the wormwood is supposed to be a hormonal and it tends to make me spot bleed but seeing as how your son doesn't have a period that won't be a problem for him :-)
Keep an eye on him to be sure he gets extra rest and lots of water. The darker urine could be from not drinking enough water. If his symptoms get worse or don't improve then he may need to cut back on the cleanse, or take a break from it, and see a dr. Be sure that it is a naturiopath so that they will understand the cleansing process and what is happening.
Most regular drs are not taught about parasites and cleansing.
