Just thought I'd bounce back to this forum as maybe my situation can help some of you!
Quite regularly on this forum people including myself have reported horrible creepy crawly feelings all over their bodies and feeling the parasites moving or tingling around. It's horrible and you start to wonder if it's in your head!!
I've been on the parasite cleanses and on a very strict diet with no Sugar and very low carb veg and high protein and fat, it's worked for me and I'm feeling much better. I've been starving the beasts.
BUT NOW I'VE FOUND OUT WHY MY PROGRESS IS SLOW!!
The only things I really felt die off/herx from were Wormwood , garlic and salt. I've had microscopy and I have LYME DISEASE.
I've probably had it for about 12 years. About 60% of people are carries of borrelia (the main bacteria spirochete) and it can cause many many strange random symptoms. When your body/immune system is particularly tired/worn out symptoms get worse. Lyme disease is when these symptoms become out of control and start to effect your life, it's a clinical diagnosis. It usually stems back to a tick bite, although some insects are also carriers of borrelia. Crawling feelings on the skin are very common.
Lyme disease is hard to diagnose and also hard to get rid of, it's called the great imitator. There are many many symptoms of it and co-infections nearly always exist.
I don't want to go on Antibiotics as there are no guarantees it will make you better and probably muck me up more!! I'm on the salt/vitamin c protocol and I'm having mega die off on and off and feel a lot better after just 4 months. The salt kills parasites and bacteria and the vitamin c builds your immune system. These are both taken in large doses, but you build up.
Pleeeeease look into being tested by a good doctor who knows what they're talking about if you suspect it may be your problem. My GP's test came back negative. Then I sent a slide to a specialist consultant and it's positive. I'm in the UK and know of two good doctors.
The Yahoo Health Group I am a member of is called Lyme Strategies. Take a look, it's very interesting anyway and the files have a few articles on lyme. Of course the salt/c thing probably works for many other parasites. How do you kill slugs and worms in the garden? Salt!
