I never had the guts to take the high dose either though I read on Shelly's forum of at least one person who did it succesfully after fasting for three days.
A friend of mine told me she had a Tapeworm many years ago. She also had to fast for three days and then was given one single dose of specific medication and she was cured. I have no idea what that medication was.
Some old folk receipes in Europe also recommend fasting and then poisoning the worm with a pickled herring. I would have tried the herring or even CoQ10 but I cannot fast. I am extremely thin.
Charly, do you know exactly what foods are bad for a worm? Can I eat brown rice or other grains? Some people say no.
