I have been on a parasite med and wonder if I am herxing or are the parasites acting up and have wrong med for specific parasite. Would love to know the experiences/knowledge of others. I also have added new foods in and wondering if they are not the cause of some discomfort, mainly a crampy of the muscles in my back left hind quarter. I also have spaciness, and a yucky tongue.

You could be hitting some candida (coconut can do that and candida can affect the tongue). Lots of weird feelings happen on anti-parasiticals, too.

BTW, everything you're posting is double posting. I've removed the second posts ... please be patient, the board is a little slow this morning.

Yes, I noticed I double posted. Thanks for removing them for me. I am experiencing lots of opaque strings of matter in my bowels at the present. Is this the bowel lining shedding or the remenants of parasites?

I was just about to post the same thing. I stopped abx about a month a guts since my only sx where mild pain and my gut was just a mess.

My pain is pretty much gone (other than soreness from working out) which I think it due to the fact that my gut seems better now.

I started taking HUMAWORM about 3 weeks ago. This week I am feeling a bit off...light headache in back right hand side of my head and a bit of light headedness / spacy feeling...I am not sure if it is time to get back to the abx or just the HUMAWORM doing its thing. I have about one more week to go so I think I will stay put and then see how I feel after that. I don't take pain meds at all but I might give it a try to see if I feel better.

I too think I am passing some parasites. I will be honest I am not 100% convince in this hold parasite stuff but I am sticking with it.

philly,

Parasites can cause a lot of pain, and if you think you are passing parasites, that would be a further clue that you are infected.

Thirty days is not nearly enough on antiparasitics, and a ninety day break as suggested by Humaworm is NOT a good idea because the parasites have layed thousands of eggs and larva.

You can alternate with Parastroy or Hanna Kroeger Wormwood. Symptoms will appear again if you don't stick with it.

Gael,

I am doing the HUMAWORM on my own...LLMD did not tell me about parasites. But I figure I would give it a try. I pain is no an issues now...just this spacy dizzy feeling..it could be a die off symptom for sure.

Will see what happens when I stop
