Ascaris is extremely tenacious. I have been dropping them almost daily for 3 months now. Just how much darn Ascaris
can take up residence in your bowels? Apparently a lot. I think there are something like 26 feet of colon, 6 small and 20 large - lots of space to take up residency.
I never knew why, even when for most of my life I was thin and trim, I always had a distended abdomen that I could not seem to rid myself of. I had dismissed it as just part of my make-up. Now my stomach is flatter than it's ever been as I continue to slowly move down the scale.
I've found coconut oil to be quite beneficial. During my Paragone cleanse, I was taking 1 tablespoon 3x a day - it was a great supplemental protocol. Now, I'm maintaining at 1 tbls. a day. It's anti-fungal, great for the liver and metabolism, and has other benefits as well (see links below). I also use it in my cooking and baking, and I give a teaspoon of it to my kids each day. It is definitely the tastiest anti-parasitical in my collection. I love the stuff.
I came across a protocol that calls for a 3-day coconut oil fast for parasites in my research - a Hawaiian technique, but I can't seem to find it now.
This is from Coconutconnection.com:
"Coconut oil may provide an effective defense against many troublesome parasites including giardia. Like bacteria and fungi, giardia can't stand up against MCFA found in coconut oil. Research has confirmed the effectiveness of MCFA in destroying giardia and possibly other protozoa.5,6,7 By using coconut oil and other coconut products every day, you may be able to destroy giardia before it can establish a toehold. In so doing you also eliminate the possibility of developing food allergies, chronic fatigue, and other related symptoms. If you're currently troubled with these conditions, coconut oil used liberally with meals may provide a source of relief. Because MCFA are quickly absorbed by the tissues and converted into energy it seems logical that those suffering from chronic fatigue would gain a great deal of benefit. Foods prepared with coconut oil, or even fresh coconut make a great energy booster.
Another possible use for coconut is for the removal of intestinal worms. In India it has been used to get rid of tapeworms. In one study it was reported that treatment with dried coconut, followed by magnesium sulfate (a laxative), caused ninety percent parasite expulsion after twelve hours. The authors of some pet books apparently have had success with coconut and recommend feeding animals ground coconut as a means to expel intestinal parasites. In India coconut oil is rubbed into the scalp as a treatment to remove head lice.
Tapeworms, lice, giardia, candida, bacteria, viruses, and germs of all sorts can be eliminated or at least held in check with coconut oil. For infections and intestinal complaints it seems like coconut oil is one of the best natural medicines you can use."
