hey,


i have a question:

last week i felt really good (monday-friday).. at friday afternoon i got my herbs for parasites:

wormwood absinthum (powder)
black walnut powder
cloves (powder)

actually im on doxy+tavanic+pulsed artemisinin too.. and felt good last week like i said..

well i took some herbs on friday afternoon.. satureday.. i woke up somewhat more worse than mo-fr... i thought.. ok.. you had 5 good days.. there can be 1 bad day... since friday im taking these 3 capsules in the morning and 3 in the evening.. for parasite treatment.. and since that time im feeling worse.

today i was fatigued.. i had more brainfog.. little dizzy.. and sweating a lot more.. funny is that i rarely see some floaters since im taking these herbs.


could this be die off?? can you herx from humaworm or something like that??

my herb combination is recommented by hulda clark.. its the "basic" treatment for parasites..

It is a herx, if it is too bad you can take a day off and then restart again or take half of it. Read about binders...., drink a lot.

Sounds like a herx. I used to herx the entire time while on humaworm but it was tolerable. If I needed to feel good for a day I would skip and start up again.

If you get real sick it's probably a good idea to skip at least one dose - if not two (a day's worth) to give your body a break.

YES!!!! I've done the hulda clark parasite cleanse with the same herbs you just started - clove, wormwood, and black walnut.

EXTREME herx! For me, the herx was probably worse than any lyme herx I ever remember getting. Bad headache, dizzy, woozy, full-head feeling, out of it feeling, complete malaise and just feeling very flu-like, etc. Most definitely parasites will cause herxes and die-off reactions.

I couldn't even get through a WHOLE week doing the parasite cleanse. After a few days, I had to stop because the herx is EXTREME. Soon, I am going to re-start the parasite cleanse because it's obvious I have a big parasite load. :-( (Most ALL people have parasites and just don't *know* they do. It's very easy to get parasites.)

Does Grapefruit Seed Extract help with killing parasites?

I seem to tolerate it okay and have been on it two to three times per day for three weeks now. I know if can help with Candida.

Currently doing the Buhner protocol and will probably add abx in the second week in May after my visit to the LLMD. Igenex results are back.

Thanks, MattH

daniel,

I would go back to lower dose until you feel a bit more stable. What I have done (because of swallowing problems)is open the capsules and mix with applesauce.

That way I can control how much I ingest and I usually just eat a little through the day according to how I am herxing. You can also just add 1 cap a day instead of 2.


Getting rid of parasites can be rough, but very important. Clear warm water enemas always helped me as well to get rid of the dying pathogens so they don't recirculate.

Don't give up on this, just go slower.

Hope you feel better.

Gael
