Well, so far I've been munching on albendazole like candy, and the Starbucks is taking care of all the fat I need to take with it for it to work. I am hoping for a die-off of at least some of the critters. Then I will complete the fast that I had started and that I had to break once all sorts of interesting things started coming out of my bum >_>. I found very thin long ones all covered up in mucous, short plump ones that look just like the fluke pictures on google, and black sesame-seed-like eggs that contain a thin white strand when broken apart ... which from what I read may be tapeworm? *gulp*. This has been hard to take: I mean, I am a normal person; my hygiene is OK, so really I have picked up all of the above while just-- doing life, essentially. Pretty mind-boggling. Also, it makes me question whether anybody is ever completely free from parasites or whether we just have to get used to the idea of a worm or two and take the occasional maintenance dose??
The albendazole munch has resulted in no actual die-off yet, but now I know exactly where my colon is, because I can feel pressure and, um, I don't know if I'm imagining it, but-- squirming? X_X. In either case, I plan to do 2g today and 2g tomorrow, and then like it or not, I'm fasting until my paycheck lol, and then I'll see about buying the stuff that I need for ICU's Tapeworm protocol.
As for the amalgam, I haven't finalized things yet. I'll be doing it in Hong Kong because that's the closest mercury-free dentist to where I live. I'll have to fly. I'll have to stay at a hotel. This on top of all the ceramic fillings and root canal fixing and bridges and you name it. I haven't gotten an actual quote yet, but it seems that 10k may actually be a conservative estimate. I keep telling myself that it's better to give them for dental work now than for MS and Alzheimer's medication later, but it is still A LOT of money for me. This is the first major health bill I am encountering in my life and it's really given me a sense of perspective. Hopefully, it will motivate me to live better - so I can look at it as school fees of sorts? Still, doesn't change the fact that at 3% interest, we're talking about 6-7 years of my retirement money. Scary. Once I get a quote, I might look into your Tijuana place - might even be cheaper ^_~
Yeah, sorry for unloading on you, but this entire mess is really bringing up a lot of stuff for me >.>
