Thanks everyone for your replies! I am so amazed at how much you all know about, well, some of the nastiest crap in the world!
I was given a link to a blog that has some testing resources for things like this: various fees and costs: stool and saliva; $300 to $500. I of course think this is the smartest thing to do first to determine what is actually showing up. My only concern is the number of stories I hear from others that they get tested, but nothing shows up. They end up doing a protocol of somekind, and spaghetti of nastiness comes out the butt in a week. So I am debating this expense.
I have read ICU's protocols for the various different worms and protozoa etc. I also read a few posts about the use of equine meds that are made of same pharmaceuticals and are more available to the USA without concern for "fraud" or prescription. I am leaning on that one as it works a lot easier on my wallet, and is easily found here.
I would have to think after a couple of rounds of a protocol would certainly eliminate most things to the point of feeling and seeing a significant difference. Then I could attack the candida after a bit to see where/how that shifts once a decent amount of the bugs are out.
I have been reading a lot of how the bugs effect candida, cortisol, and the liver/endocrine system as a result. It certainly is amazing how all of those things can effect your mood, outlook on life, general emotional state and mentaility...YOUR BODY IS CONSTANTLY UNDER ATTACK AND CAN'T RECOUP!
This will sound callous, but I haven't really noticed many "I am healed" stories here: as in a completed case to the point of feeling like a normal human and functioning normally. We can rid ourselves of most of these....right? I am sure with eggs and segments that it will take a very long time to rid them all, but we can get these under control and have them on the run, right?! :)
Thank you all and I deeply appreciate the advice and information. Keep it coming!
