I also meant to tell you that some parasites lay there eggs on a full moon. the thrush is also a side effect of parasites, I belive. I had alot of trouble with this and apple cider vinegar has taken away the problem. you can rinse your mouth with it, probably a tablespoon mixed with 8 ounces of water. also you can take it by mouth mix 1 teaspoon with water 3 times a day for about a week. this should help clean out bateria fungus and parasites. They make a pill form also if you can't handle the taste. I don't know excatly how much will be a good defense on the parasite but it is known to work. One research I checked into said that it is the number one thing used in africa to rid oneself of parasites. also pumpkin seeds, 30 a day, followed by fiber one hour later. Do this for 3 days or so and check to see if anything is coming out. Hot sauce is suppose to make parasites leave your body. countries like India or mexico use hot, bitter spices to rid parasites. If you have any friends with relatives to these countries maybe you can ask them to get home remedies from them.
