I would like to add to the conversation~~with my experience.
My personal experience with parasites is that it is
an ongoing battle and that some parasites we harbor
have been with us a long time. Certainly I worm myself
once or twice a year and more often if I develop symptoms
of parasites. Hygiene is important but risks of parasites
are many; touching your pet, walking barefoot, dangling
your legs off a dock or swimming in rivers or ponds etc.
My naturopath was the one who laid out the protocol for
me and showed me in a dark field study that there is a
constant battle between my body and parasites, yeast and
at the time, free radicals. My job was to amp up my immune
system and to provide my *army* with nutritional support. I
did this with herbs and good nutrition but also, by killing
off parasites with herbs. It seems that scattering is
always an issue since even without any intervention, the
immune system is working to deal with the invaders to the
extent that they can. My emphasis in my healing work was
to increase the volume and quality of my blood, keep my
filters clean, and to decrease the parasite and yeast load
in order to increase the efficiency of my immune system.
I do think that your suggestions are important in that your
concerns do address the lack of a comprehensive approach,
but I am also concerned that your reaction may suggest that
people who use parasite cleanses are making their situation
worse and I do not find agreement with that, specifically
because dark field studies do show that herbs are effective
in knocking down parasitic infestations. This certainly is
not to say that parasites are life-threatening, but they do
rob the body of nutrition and their own life cycle and bodily
functions contribute to the toxicity in our body.
I also emphasized alkalizing my body too. I used a zapper
and have been a steadfast user of Essiac which contributes
many benefits to the human body and immune system~~
Benefits of Essiac~~
Prevents the build up of fatty deposits in artery walls, heart, kidney & Liver.
Regulates cholesterol levels by transforming Sugar and fat into energy.
Destroys parasites in the digestive system and throughout the body.
Counteracts the effects of aluminum and mercury poisoning.
Strengthens and tightens muscles, organs and tissues
Makes bones, joints, ligaments, lungs and membranes strong and flexible, less liable
to stress and stress injuries.
Nourishes and stimulates the brain and nervous system.
Promotes the absorption of fluids in the tissues.
Removes toxic accumulations in fat, lymph, bone marrow, bladder and alimentary canals.
Neutralizes toxins and absorbs toxins in the bowel and eliminates both.
Clears the respiratory channels by dissolving and expelling mucus.
Relieves the liver of its burden of detoxification by converting fatty toxins into
water soluble substances that can be easily eliminated via the kidneys.
Assists the liver to produce lecithin, which forms part of the myelin sheaf, a white
fatty material that encloses nerve fibers.
Reduces, perhaps eliminates, heavy metal deposits in tissues (especially those surrounding the joints) to reduce inflammation and stiffness.
Improves the function of the pancreas and spleen by increasing the effectiveness
Purifies the blood.
Increases red cell production and keeps them from rupturing.
Increases the body's ability to utilize oxygen by raising oxygen level in cells.
Maintains the balance between potassium and sodium within the body so that the fluid
inside and outside each cell is regulated; in this way cells are nourished with
nutrients and are also cleansed.
Converts calcium and potassium oxalates into harmless forms by making them solvent
in the urine. Regulated the amount of oxalic acid delivered to the kidneys, thus
reducing the risk of stone formation in the gall bladder, kidneys or urinary tract.
Protects against toxins entering the brain.
Helps to protect the body against radiation and x-rays.
Relieves pain, increases the appetite (when required) and provides more energy along
with a sense of well being.
Speeds up wound healing by regenerating the damaged area.
Increases the production of anti-bodies like lymphocytes and T-cells in the thymus
gland, which is the defense of our immune system.
Inhibits and possibly destroys benign growths and tumors.
The above list should be regarded as possible tendencies of the knock on effect
of taking Essiac tea, but since we are all different, the effects are not completely
While it is difficult to say which symptoms can be attributable
to yeast or parasites, or in my case, cancer, I think that they
were interrelated and that I could not have returned to balance
without killing off my parasite load. I was taught about *cycling*
and that simply means alternating periods of killing or activity
with periods of rest or integration. Relative to parasites, it
enables the parasites eggs to hatch, to allow parasites to migrate
out of organs and resume their life cycles and then you hit them
again. It took a while but my efforts were rewarded with a lack
of symptoms, as well, a feeling of wellness and high function.
This is not to say that you or your family have a situation which
is as drastic as mine was, but what I am offering testimony to,
is that, I did have a severe parasite load and through systematic
and comprehensive management, I did reclaim my health and that I
did not have problems related to scattering that I would not have
related to my parasite load in general. My progress was all good.
Of course, I will add the caveat that I was under supervision of
a naturopath who I had complete faith in and so, the efforts were
not LIMITED to just parasite cleansing. So, hopefully that will
help people make the differentiation between using a treatment
and leaving parasites alone, thinking doing nothing would be better
than doing something. In my case, doing everything made the difference.
Timing was a huge consideration but fortunately, I had a naturopath
who conveyed to me the importance of avoiding a healing crisis...
while healing. Also, rotating treatments, since some parasites are
dealt with more efficiently than others using different formulas.
I have 4 or 5 different favorite parasite treatments and I use
them randomly and so keep the critters guessing.
