after about two years straight of eating a diet of mainly bloody rare steaks
and meat , i noticed an article about tapeworms.
i was reading about steak tartare(raw minced beef) and was considering trying it,
but i read about someone being infected with Tapeworms by it.
i didn't think i could get Tapeworms , i never even know about tapeworms til now.
now i am freaking out because i saw some in my stool!
what do i do!?
i've looked into some herbal cleansers but i am really sensitive to
herby ferby type stuff and REALLY DON'T want to try them at all.
i also like to mention that as a part of the high protein diet
i fasted for most of the day and only had one main course in the evening-
i would rather juice fast or some other ways of killing these suckers easier rather
then taking a handfull of pills. i also read that eating nothing
but pineapples for a week kills tapeworms & parastites (any truth to it?)
i am definetly cutting out all red meat from the diet (but maybe still eat pork )
the question really is though i am considering going out tommorow and buying
a big ol' jug of Jack Daniel's Whiskey and drowning them out with alcohal!
i don't see how or why i just can't kill them off this way.
i would assume alcohal kills parasites, right?
if so i have always been a hard drinker on the weekends so i am wondering
just how many i do have.
I think the bad news is that it isnt that easy. According to my knowledge alcohol is what these guys absolutely love!! The body turns alcohol into Sugar and you are just gonna feed them and he will get bigger and loving it. Plus drinking alcohol makes the ph- values of your colon acidic (it should be alcaline - they dont like that), so that they will get not just fat but also find the ideal environment to live their wormy life and have offsprings and so on.
I wish some strong alcohol would sort out the problem but unfortunately thats not gonna do the job. If you want to eliminate the worms you need to stay away from sugars like refined sugar, alcohol, white bread etc.
A super dose of Enzym Q10 is said to be effective against tapeworms. Good luck.
Alcohol could possibly kill certain times of smaller parasites, but I really doubt it would do much for a lot of tape worm varieties. Tapeworms seem to be a hardy bunch and I suspect when the doctor thinks he's gotten rid of your Tapeworms and you trust him, that you both could be wrong. They can continue and resurface for years afterwards.

at this point i am starting to not even care anymore..
geez, i spent about three years on a high protein diet eating a ton
of bloody rare steaks ( so it won't dentrue the protein) & drinking red bulls-and now i learn that i have parasites infestation-
parasites schmarasites... after three days of researching this stuff
and grossing myself out. i am done.
i am gonna cleanse my colon and intestines soo good that i'll poop garden salads
herbs are so effective that you will have bad side effects if you dont get the colon cleaned out while taking them. At least take prune juice and castor oil every night to "unplug" your colon so dead stuff can get out into the toilet. Otherwise, expect lots of skin issues, dizzy spells, etc from the herbs doing thier work.
As for other ways to kill tapeworm-- yep, RAW pineapples (ripe) eaten daily will kill many a tapeworm. Cloves (ground up or else clove oil) will kill the parasite eggs and baby worms. For some reason cloves are the only thing that is really effective against worm eggs.
I just read that 4 glasses of natural Pomegranet juice daily will kill tapeworms. i read that you can just blend the pomegranete seeds along with the fruit fiber in the blender for the best strength and effect. No wonder I actually passed some Tapeworm segments when eating a raw Pomegranete last month! I think I have dog tapeworm. You can get that just by being bitten from fleas from your dog! I had flea bites on my ankle last year when we had 2 dogs.-- plus I live in the country and our dogs are always playing in the fields and killing and eating rodents, etc.
Alcohol will kill anything at first-- but it will also back stab you about 2 weeks later as it creates a chemical condition in the intestines where worms can hatch better and live. Alcoholics have more parasite issues than non-alcoholics because of this. It creates an acidic ph balance which permits more parasites to safely hatch. Even cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment.
Did you know that meats-even chicken and too many eggs and dairy create an acidic ph in the body? You may not be able to cut out all meat--and if so, then at least dont eat pork and really limit red meat-- and eat no more than 3 servings a week.
When you eat meat- also make it no larger a serving than the size of a deck of cards.
Raw pineapple and papaya afterwards will help you digest it- and when you eat it- dont drink any drinks or sodas, water or any liquid while eating- and chew extra long.
I prefer a raw fruit/nut/veggie meals with occasional steamed veggies and stews and soups with some organic cheeses -- and when I drink beer, it's one glass with a meal and its the GOOD NON CHEMICAL stuff. Guinness and Becks' are good beers because they are brewed the old fashioned way instead of the cheap way out with chemicals.
All store bought liquour has sulfites added - which encourages parasites. If you drink anymore alcohol- it should be home-made stuff. What a shame that it's such a crime to sell home-made liquor when it is soooo much healthier than the crap sold in the State liqour stores.
Anyways- you should try to limit the amount you drink- because more than a glass once in a while will make your ph balance acidic.
so now that you were practically living on an Atkins type diet for all those years- its never too late to restore your diet. Get more raw fruits and veggies. Worms hate the fruit and veggie enzymes but they lovvvvvve meats and dairy.
Get the colon cleaned-- strive for 2- 3 bowel movements a day. You will be poooping alot as you get cleaned out- and your butt may be sore as all that old crap gets pushed out.
Take 1-2 months each Spring and Fall for bi-annual parasite cleanses. Especially in your condition! Just use the ferby herby herbs-- Read the link i posted above for the herbs to use. You can even use them in capsule form. What I reccomend is just getting two bottles of MH"s liquid herbal dewormer (it tastes good too) purchase at 937-666-6107
It has no additives or chemicals- he makes it himself. It is the best for all types of parasites.
Also try the pomegranete juice 4 times a day and raw pineapple
Raw pumpkin seeds with that will also "paralize" parasites and make them succumb to the anti-parasite herbs and starve to death.
Most people have Tapeworms and have no clue they have them.
Tapeworms are also responsible for many a beer belly gut!
thank god! i am definetly going on the fruit cleanse for the next month
(even through thanksgiving)actually i might as well cleanse for the next
two months til 2006.you know, finish off the year clean slate (:
i am definetly going for the pineapple/pumpkin seeds.
just a question..
how exactly am i supposed to get all my protein needs safely?
i came from eating 200 gms daily to 50..and i am loosing muscle,
and becoming weaker.
i work out pretty intensly and i need protein...
Even though Egg yolks cause some acidity- they will be balanced by the raw fruits and veggies.
Also- raw nuts- and seeds- especially HEMP seeds have protien- Hemp being the best.
For Dairy- I suggest organic KEFIR --which has even more good bacteria and probiotics than even Yogurt. By the way- parasites hate active cultures from Kefir or yogurt.
I would also - in your case-- have cooked fish. Make sure it is mercury free fish., or else eat fish with Algin supplements. Algin will push out any heavy metals from the fish--out into your bowel movements. (you can get it at http://www.herballure.com )
KElp and other seaweeds may do the same thing- as Algin comes from seaweed.
P.S-- want to really irk the parasites- and even kill a few really fast?
Down a tablespoon of Oregano Oil with a glass of Kefir milk, and eat some raw pineapple .
I did this and passed a long clear worm within 30 minutes from eating this.
Imediately after eating this, my intestines wouldnt stop rumbling. Then I had the urge to go to the bathroom, and I passed ONLY this worm attached to some sort of egg looking thing--nothing else. It was about 12" long too and translucent.
Immediately after passing this, I felt such a feeling of intestinal relief.
I read later that Anaskis worms (found rolled up in raw sushi) is translucent like this. Before this I passed the same type worm during a parasite cleanse using herbs.
About 2 years before I had raw sushi for the first time-- I've often had intestinal issues, so figured it was just a part of being 40 something years old-- and no real issue. I no longer have these issues. Could be I passed a mating pair of these worms, and the cloves did away with the kiddies!
I make a bowl of Wild organic rice and pour on olive oil, chopped celery, tarragon spice and this Bragg's Amino Acids all over it- it is deliecious and you'll need the amino acids.
Also- Brewer's Yeast added to your salads will provide you with all the B vitmains and photonutrients as well.
I would also allow myself some cooked organic turkey during thanksgiving-- going cold turkey (no pun intended-but that sounds cute!) may be hard for you and cause you to binge later. White meat once a week-- from free range turkey (not the livestock injected with hormones and antibiotics) is permissible.
I am strict vegetarian nowadays- , but I realize that not everyone's body is meant to cut out all meat. I cant digest meat very well. If your going to eat meat- make it turkey and sardines. Add the sardines in your salad with some hard boiled organic eggs.
Genuine sardines are also very good for you I just read. Be careful that it is fresh-- as fresh sardines dont have that fishy smell. Also, make sure they are GENUINE sardines, because the FDA permits companies to sell Herring and other small fish under the name "sardines".
I just read that many people who eat sardines tend to extend their lives longer than others.
Now-- to help with the ph issue-- Use either Balsamic or Apple Cider Vineger for salad vinegars. Don't use malt or white distilled. Balsamic and Apple Cider are alkaline forming (which is what you want to fight the worms)
The other two are actually acid forming.
Cold pressed olive oil is also good to use with the vinegars and is alkaline forming too. I whisk Bragg's Apple cider vinegar and a touch of Balsamic vinegar into some unrefined olive oil. I add a tablespoon or two of Brewers Yeast and whisk that in too. It gives the dressing a yummy beer like flavor, thickens the texture and provides the B-Complex vitamins. Sometimes I add a dash of that Bragg's Amino Acids to this also.
after seeing those worms in my stool , i think i'll pass on the steak & ribs for
just as long as i can have some eggs & chicken i'll be okay
okay here's something really really really strange..
i read that alkaline enviroments kill parasites (?)
i have been having urges to *gulp* EAT BATTERIES for the longest time!!!!
sorry, i know that's odd but i had to let it out when you mentioned
you also mentioned that beans was okay?
i have alot of canned chili left over and was wondering if it was okay,
i rinse out all the sauce off of them- but i leave like a quarter in and cook
the washed out beans in it, for taste.
i really do love chili and i don't think i could live without it
i originally started eating it because of the high fiber content and sheer
ammount of complex carbs (60 gms a can,30 gms. protein)
lol, Batteries! cool! ya never know, that may help!!
but then i'd worry about metals like mercury..lol!
Beans and even seeds and nuts and rice do have a more acidifying effect, though not as bad as meats. But as long as you get plenty of raw fruits and veggies /salads in you daily- you can allow yourself these-- as well as some white meats (cooked good)
I would permit myself sardines too- the real sardines.
I would get organic beans and make your own veggie chili using them. You can also add tofu chunks. Even though soy isnt that great for you, organic Soy in Tofu form has alot of protien and is not the bad type of soy.
Look into that Bragg's Amino Acids in soy sauce too. it comes in a 32 oz bottle for about $5.95 or so.-- it lasts forever and tastes awesome. Wild unrefined rice is also good for you to have-- and this tastes good in that-- and you can throw in some chopped nuts in the rice too.
Fruits and veggies that are good for you protien wise are Kiwi fruits and avocados.
I'd experiment and make up all my own recipes using all kinds of spices and seasonings. Make your own Salsa-- hot Cayenne Pepper is really good for your body and parasites hate that too.
Raw Fruit fasts are good to do for cleansings monthly. Maybe one-two weeks each month. Raw Citrus is awesome for this and raw citrus (though it is acidic, turns alkaline in the body)
I love to add unrefined coconut oil (found in healthfood stores) in a bowl of cut up raw oranges and grapefruit peices. Then I also add some flakes of coconut . Tastes great!
For breakfasts on my way to work I mix a bowl of raw sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, raw almonds, a cup or two of raw fruit--like raspberries, or pomengranete seeds, some olive oil, and some raw maple syrup. Tastes awesome !
i eat a ton of veges and fruits so i'll be set.
how do you clean your lettuce/salads?
i know faucet water is horrible, but i have no choice really.
you mentioned parasites also hate hot peppers?
could i possibly use them as a supplement also? i eat a ton of them
on a daily basis.After the intial euphoria i feel energetic and
wired for some reason.
whats the health benefits of sardines over oysters?
I know the parasites in the intestines may not exactly like a hot pepper--especially the type that eat the food we eat -like tapeworm.
In most cases ( but perhaps not in yours) its not to eat hot peppers every day- you're going to end up making your body acidic. Cayenne has its uses, but abusing hot peppers by making them a dietary staple in your diet will backfire that way. Cayenne will rev up the circulation and probably save a persons' life if having a stroke or heart attack.-- it is something I read on the "Ask the Barefoot Herbalist" forum that is critical to have in every medicine chest.-- but MH (the forum owner over there) says just dont eat it globs of it every day or you'll end up acidic down the road.
Now I never knew sardines were so good-til I read this newsletter called "Alternatives for the Health Connscious Individual"
THere is an article in there raving about how they found sardines can extend a persons' life til thier 90's. It's said to be rich in nucleotides-- 'the building blocks of DNA and RNA". It improves eyesight in some to where they no longer need bifocals to read. takes away joint pain and stiffness, asthma, contains more protien than steak, more potassium than bananas, more iron than cooked spinach, is loaded with CoEnzyme Q10, fights free radicals, helps maintain healthy gums, is one of the best source of omega 3 oils, rich in calcium and vitamin D, increases skin elasticity, the body's ability to repair itself, enhances effects of other anti-oxidants, improves the response and efficiency of the immune system and increases cellular metabolism to name just a few of what good sardines do.
Most types of Oysters also have a high nucleotide content as does Brewers yeast, lentils, anchovies, oysters, mackerel and most types of beans, animal liver, Chlorella and Spirulina.--but sardines have the highest level of all.
Also- Sardines are low in mercury because they are tiny. Chlorella is a mercury spongue- and many larger fish absorb mercury in their bodies-- so to eat them and be safe from mercury , you have to eat them with Algin supplements so your body wont collect the mercury from them.
The newsletter continues to state that sardines are not supposed to smell "fishy". If they do, it's because the company packaged sardines that were going bad. also, 40 years ago- the fish packing companies lobbied and won the right to package any small bone fish- like herring, brislings, sprats, etc. etc., and call them "sardines" on their labels in North America.
True sardines come from Mediterranian waters and taste awesome in a little olive oil, squeezed lemon and garlic.
They have a really high protien content too.
Oysters, other shellfish and crusteceans are scavenger fish and collect the ocean garbage into their little bodies- including heavy metals and oil from oil spills, etc, etc. I read somewhere it's a good idea to not eat them- even though they are a popular luxury food in America. i'ts probably really healthy to eat caviar though-- (fish eggs) but the thought of that makes me sick!
are canned sardines in olive oil just as healthy also?
thanks for the tip about the hot peppers, i've have been
eating them like candy so i'll definetly slow down.
it seems like when i like something i tend to overdo it..
i must find a middle ground!
but are there ways to overcome the possible acicidy of the hot peppers?
this sounds like a horrible question...
i am not sure if you answered it already maybe it was someone else,
but i have a ton of canned Nalley Chili left and i was wondering if
they were okay to eat.
i ate it before and it gives me a ton of energy ,they were a staple as my carb source. i rinse them out and about a 1/4 of the sauce left over in the
can and boil it & let it simmer.
I'd probably still take some cayenne, just a moderate amount daily-- you probably need it for your heart. If you were a heavy weight lifter, you may have an enlarged heart and the cayenne may be helping your heart stay strong.
My boyfriend has an enlarged heart-- he is about 5'7 and up until last year really bulked up from weight lifting and bragged that he could lift more than the younger guys (He's also 42)
But his excessive upper weight was hurting him physically-- He still is cut pretty good, but not an exaggerated mass like he was. He never took steroids-- just Ephedra before the FDA banned it.
I'd finish of the chili at this point- why waste it. After that- be careful with the red meat. You can get alot of good protein and amino acids without eating ground red meat for it- Alot of folks dont realize that and the cattle industry sure as heck doenst want you to know that.
EVERYONE HAS PARASITES.. i wouldnt go crazy trying to GET RID OF ALL YOUR PARASITES.. you can get sick trying to KILL ALL YOUR PARASITES AND YOU CAN GO CRAZY TOO.. wormwood is aAWFUL.. i'm dying cause that shit made me go crazy... are you digesting?
best thing you can do is get your body as IN ORDER AS YOU CAN YOUR BODY MIND AND SPIRIT... parasites don't like happy people either.
False statement: "parasites like meat."
No they do not. They thrive on refined sugars, starchy foods, etc. Eating well cooked meat & eggs, plus lots of greens & pineapple, even berries, this is a great example of what you can eat while getting rid of parasites. Warm water & Lemon, Applecider vinegar, herbs (do your research):Wormwood, Black-Walnut hull, cloves, etc.
There are so many people giving out false information. Yes, meat causes acidity, but you need a combination of acidic/alkaline foods.
Please don't spread false information about parasites and chicken. Pork is the culprit. Everything has to be cooked very well.
Get a good probiotic & digestive enzyme. Make sure the supplements you take do not have additives.
