I would suggest that you eat in whatever way makes you feel best and just make sure that there are a lot of vegetables and fruit in your diet (raw or cooked) - that's where the real nutrition comes from. Try to keep the animal protein to a minimum. If you do that and flush your liver , you'll heal over time...No, I'm not sure if I had parasites come out or not. I did see some white things, but didn't know what they were and was really just focused on moving forward. If they were in there, they were needed to help clean up the mess.
