I also wonder if one really needs to detox (liver, kidneys, etc) to rid ourselves of the poison these ropes accumulate inside themselves. I would think these live on these toxins and removing them would make it impossible for them to live.
I have use quite successfully Lugos Iodine 2% topical on itchy skin. I also use toothpaste to dry lesions out, but find the Lugos is much better. I did a heated salt + lugos in a napkin to remove inflammation (topical, as described in the salt and Turpentine video, same guy as the link above)it seems to be working and quick!
I am planning to do a Master Cleanse for 10 days after I return form a trip I have, and later do the Turpentine.
When I feel I don't want to do something to rid myself of this worm, like an enema for example, I take force and do it! is like this rope feels me and makes me lazy. So I use a lot of intention to let it 'know' is going to be out of me.
Any how the Turpentine looks promising... Yes I know webmd says is dangerous!
