1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes,
2 To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:
3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4 I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5 For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— 6 God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8 He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
A Church Divided Over Leaders
10 I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,[a] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11 My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12 What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas[b]”; still another, “I follow Christ.”
13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so no one can say that you were baptized in my name. 16 (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.) 17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
Christ Crucified Is God’s Power and Wisdom
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”[c]
20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”[d]
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.

I lost 10% of my body weight without even realizing it by just cutting out rice and breads. But that is mostly water.
However as you lose fat, your body can replace the fat with water and your weight wont change. It then all of a sudden lose all that weight in a matter of hours. I have stayed at the same weight for 8-10 days and lose 15lb in a 24 hour window.

It looks like a well digested roundworm aka Ascaris. The length suggests a female. Tapered end is characteristic.
One week of mebendazole is not doing much. You will need a protocol that lasts for months if not years.
We generally find that if you have one parasite you have others. It's like peeling an onion. Your anal itch suggests pinworms. The constant hunger suggests tapeworms.
Suggestions: Google Dr. Andreas Kalcker and find his parasite PDF.
Google Dr. Simon Yu. See the website Debugyourhealth.com
Read the book Healing the Symptoms Known As Autism. It has Dr. Kalcker's protocol in it.
Search CZ for posts on roundworms. Look for posts by MattK3- he has a file called Ascaris 123. Very long.
Look for posts from Positive Mind, ICU. Look at my blog in new blogs, #4190, Getting the Parasites Out. My protocol is in the very first post. To get started, order FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth (DE) on line and start with 1/2 tsp. in 8 oz water per day. Keep increasing the doses until you get to 1 tsp. 3x/day. The DE may add to your constipation. Search posts on CZ around eliminating constipation. I also have a list of labs and dr.s in one post on my blog.
Buy a used parasitology textbook on line. Look at the CDC website for some really basic information.
Every one is different with different infestations, so you have to become your own healer. Try dealing with the pinworms and the roundworms first.
Best of luck. Keep coming back and asking questions. Don't bother with doctors. They are untrained in parasites. You may have to get your family treated and any pets if you live with them.
Please help - any suggestions or knowledge would be appreciated!
I am new here but I've been reading the forums for a couple of months. I've had some health issues for years and seen many doctors but they just suggest steroids to suppress the symptoms which I don't want, but I have tried. I've also read many books and tried many diets and I feel that the answer should be easy enough, so if anyone has any ideas please share!
So what I have:
- Started with sneezing in 2012 when I moved to a new apartment. I can sneeze up to 500 times a day. Sometimes it makes me so tired that I need to take a nap.
I've been diagnosed with seasonal allergies but I don't believe it because it feels like allergies all year round and I feel better when I go outside.
It's the worst in the morning.
Some days I barely sneeze at all and it's driving me crazy to find out what I did differently on a sneezing day vs. a non sneezing day.
Benedryl does work for the sneezing but it makes me very tired, but claritin doesn't work at all.
I don't have any sinus pain or headaches or anything like that.
I have moved away from that apartment where it started. A few months before the sneezing started I had a wisdom tooth infection and I had all 4 removed. Besides another allergy that developed, I can't think of anything else that might have caused this.
I have tried no sugar, no gluten, no dairy diets at the same time and separately. They all seem to work at first and then after about a week the sneezing is back. Also did oil pulling, same result.
I live in a very humid environment and I went to Cuba for a week and didn't sneeze at all!
Doctors don't take me seriously because it's sneezing, not a serious life threatening disease or anything. They just give me nasal sprays which I don't want to take because I am determined to beat this!
2 - In 2015 I was pregnant with my daughter and my childhood asthma came back. I thought it was just a weird symptom of pregnancy but I still have it now. Every time I lay down I need to take my inhaler, so that is every night before bed, or if I lay down to watch TV or anything. I also get asthma when breathing cold air so anytime I go outside in the winter.
Various diets seem to also have an affect on this but its the same as the sneezing, nothing completely removes it.
Thanks for reading through my long post. Any suggestions?
I would like to do parasite cleanse and master cleanse and then after that liver, kidney, etc.
I would also like to have a better diet, cut out dairy, do paleo with small amounts of meat only, mostly vegetables. It's hard to know what is a good diet because everyone is so biased. Obviously processed foods and sugars are bad, but how much meat is good to eat?

I began the fast at 224, ended at 194. I continued to lose a couple pounds during the first week of refeeding. I haven't weighed myself for awhile, don't have a scale with me now. But with the return of sodium intake and solid food (albeit very clean eating) I imagine I've probably put back a few pounds.
