My story is...........I was in the mood for a pumpkin bean soup in June and made it! It's so yummy, I like to add it to a bowl of brown rice and eat it like chilli, so I had it for like 3 days and I think it had an antiparasitic effect since it has garlic, pumpkin, onion, so I passed a few things that looked like white little worms on my bowel movement. I told my husband and he said it was just undigested vegetables. Well, I was still freaking a bit so I started researching and I had quite a few symptoms including an itchy bum which I always thought was do to just walking a lot and powder helped alot. Since we already had garlic, I thought what the heck, I took garlic pills twice a day for 3 days and started passing a ton of stringy things. At this point I started adding more and more anti-parasitic supplements and doing the papaya smoothy and my discomfort peaked at around 2 weeks time. I thought I was going to go crazy, my itching was so intense I mean everywhere but that improved immensely soon after and my skin has improved a lot, my nails are now healthy looking. I even had black specs come out of my pores! I think they were bird mites or something, I don't know if they were making me itch while they were dying! I have no idea how long I've been infected! I lived on a farm for 3 years as a kid, lived in Panama as a teenager, had a great dane I almost lost to demodex as a young adult, have had sooooo many different pets, and just live in a major city that is soooooo filthy! I've seen rats in the auditorium in my university! I'm a clean and germ freak so I feel this was a total shock to me but I've learned a lot on here.
