Some folks choose to fast while others do not. The theory behind fasting during a parasite cleanse is to "starve" the parasites of a lot of food and giving them lots of herbal "poisons" to eat instead.
You don't have to fast on order for HUMAWORM to be effective - it's taken 30 minutes before meals so that the parsites get the herbs to eat instead of your food.
When I did my first parasite cleanse I tried doing the Master Cleanse while taking Parastroy. Sadly, I became very ill from the detox of the cleanse and the die off from the parasite herbs. On my ninth day of fasting I nearly passed out while at a crafts fair. The friend I was with insisted I eat. I did begin to feel better. After eating a couple of days I added a colon cleanse to the parasite cleanse and passed over three feet of stool, I believe it was mucoid plaque, that was studded with dozens of red and white worms. I lost five pounds with that one huge movement and that was when my poor health began to turn around.
When my Humaworm arrives, I plan to stick to a light veggie diet, but will continue to eat and hopefully get the parasites irritated and hungry, but still be able to keep up my strength. Also, the enzymes from raw foods may help with parasite removal. I am hoping I can see the same turnaround in health that I did three years ago. The results may not be as dramatic, but I want these critters out of me. Last summer I cared for my two beloved old dogs during their last days. I suspect that I was infected with more parasites then, and possibly did not fully rid myself of the tapeworm problem from years ago. I can hardly wait to get started, but also happy to know the product will be very fresh.
Do you think maybe the 9 days of fasting is what created that kind of elimination? I'm really confused about diet. I read that a lot of people swear by lots of meat. They claim that parasite's love an akaline body. I know that the immune system needs protein to function properly. So, if your immune system is down how can you get well? I have done both, and I still don't know. Once I met the Ann Lousie Gittlemen, she wrote " Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" The first she told me was eat protein! She said, parasites hate it. After 6 years of trying everything, I'm beginning to think diet makes no difference at all.
"After 6 years of trying everything, I'm beginning to think diet makes no difference at all."
I have no idea what the correct answer is. Some people say avoid animal products at all costs, while others say eat meat. I don't know. I do know I cannot be 100% vegetarian for long periods of time, I get very weak. I also know that I cannot handle a lot of wheat and other grains, yet right now I crave carbohydrates in an almost unnatural manner.
My Naturopath, who is also my Chiropractor who is treating my spinal injury, recommends a diet that is 80-10-10. That is 80% fruits and veggies, 10% animal products, both meat and dairy, and 10% grains and starches. This diet is supposed to meet all nutritional requirements, be naturally alkalizing and keep blood sugar levels normal. When I follow it I feel better, but like I said, right now all I want is carbs-and a lot of them! That is one reason I think my tapeworm friend has produced a lot of kinfolk. I occasionally pass a segment. I am going to try and stick to this better than I have the last few weeks when I have given in to these out of control cravings.
By the way, some veggies are very high in protein. Broccoli is a good example. I really don't know what parasites like and don't like. Some say acidity invites parasites, while others say the opposite. I have a feeling pH is not that important, parasites by their nature are very adaptable. I feel that irritating herbs, a clean colon and simple diet may be the best combination, but I really don't know. All I can say is that from my experience that fasting and a parasite cleanse was very hard on my body, but I was pretty toxic at that time too. Would the same thing happen again? I don't know, I just feel like I need to warn new comers about a potential danger.
Have you considered that you may have a fungal infection as well? There is a book " The Fungus Link" that describes a lot of what you describe. I know it is true for me. I have to stay on it all the time to avoid the carb cravings. It is my understanding that yeast and parasites live symbiotically.
