In other posts, I have talked about what I have seen in my poo - I am a poo-watcher :). In one, you mentioned that what I may be seeing is threadworms. I am on my second parasite cleanse, and what I am seeing has changed. I saw liver flukes and pieces of flukes - all bright red - and some very long brown stringy things,as well as the little brown threads, but now, on day 6 of my 10 day cleanse, I am noticing very regular looking poos with quite a number of little short brown "threads" coming out of them or being inside when I break them apart - sometimes they are whitish - but mostly brown. My rump has been a bit itchy, too.
Okay, I was thinking - when I was about 8, I had pinworms but had them in my urethra. I remember this mostly because my stepmom was horrified and told me I was dirty, Could it be possible that I have had a threadworm infection the entire time??
My symptoms until starting the cleanses were - pain in upper right quadrant, bloating, gas, diarreha alternating with constipation, severe stomach cramps and loose stools that smelled like acid, weight gain - constant, and I mean CONSTANT food and sugar cravings.Could it have been threadworms in my gut?? I also came to understand that they will cause itching around the vulva, etc. I sure am wondering...all my life I have struggled with terrible horrible sugar cravings, and fed those cravings with cans of frosting, candy,cookies to the point where I thought I was a freak.
Today, my belly is beginning to lay flat, I do not have the side pain, I have regular movements except for the somewhat unusual things in my stool, no diarreha, no gas, no constipation, no real urgent sugar or food cravings. For the first time I feel that I have a grip on my food intake, instead of it controlling me.
I am afraid, though, that when I stop this cleanse in 4 days that I am still infected as I am still passing these little skinny brown critters and am wondering what will happen in the 90 days I have to wait till I can do a Humaworm cleanse.
I sure don't want to go back to the mindless feeding that I was doing.
How do I know when I am "free"??
Those pinworms from your childhood were more than likely ascaris. Pinworms will not cause the life-long symptoms you have described - BUT ascaris will. I think this is what you have been seeing in your poo.
Ascaris larvae are small and can look like pinworms - when they are older they look like white earthworms and when they are fully grown, they tend to get stained various shades of brown (from the stool). They can cause extreme hunger with weight gain - especially when they are well established in the body.
Your body is responding well to the cleanse. Just finish the 30 days - then wait 90 days and do another one. Doing too many cleanses too close together can cause resistant parasites. Here is an old post about resistant ascaris: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=735294#i
I know it is hard to wait - but the risk of resistance is very real.
I think I am just getting confused because on different posts I read people passing white earthworm ascaris, and I have passed a couple of dead? brown things and all the little threads. Not bundles of worms or stuff like I read, just a couple of brown long stringies and lots of little threads. Yuck
Threadworms are very thin like pieces of sewing thread.
When you are infested with a lot of active threadworms, they cause itching at night when you are still, moreso than the daytime. They are very active at this time and crawl out of the rectum and into the closed cheeks. When they crawl out enough to reach the air, they retract back away from the open air.
This movement then causes itching, and causes the desire to scratch your butt, and the microscopic eggs can get under your nails. Since you are taking humaworm, it also contains cloves which prevents parasite eggs from hatching if they are exposed to it. ;)
An itchy anus at any time can be a symptom of parasites.
Sewing thread was the best way to describe it... thanks - this morning seemed to be liver fluke morning - red pieces of fluke throughout - I seem to break them down or something - or they just aren't really big - but they sure look icky to me...
I am a little depressed to read the posts about people worrying about superparasites - what if I stop at the end of the cleanse and I create giant threadworms and liver flukes????
My experiences cleansing have really been nothing but positive. I have less appetite, no sugar cravings, better digestion and assimilation, clearer skin, better energy, etc.
I am sorry some have trouble now I am scared as well
You will not create super parasites by doing a 30 day cleanse. It's doing too many cleanses that will create problems - or not enough. Here is a post about sper parasites: Please read: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=735294#i
it will explain more.
