I understand completely. Sometimes you just need to get it out, so feel free; I've been there.
Ack, I wouldn't eat Starbucks pastries while deworming, or generally. Not going to help you at all..in fact, it will/does harm you. If you don't want a regular meal, drinking olive oil works well.
I think staying completely parasite-free is next to impossible: they're in everything..the air, the water, the food, in dirt/dust, on surfaces, etc. I'll likely take parasite drugs prophylactically for the rest of my life.
2g of albendazole per day? That seems quite high. I took 800mg (400mg BID), and most treatment protocols I'm familiar with are similar.
I understand your feelings about how expensive all of this is. Before I picked up my parasite infection, I'd never been sick in my life, other than the sniffles once every 5 years. But you're right: it's a matter of 'pay me now' or 'pay me later' ...
In case you decide to check him out, I saw Dr. Arechiga in Tijuana and liked him and his clinic quite a lot.
