I was just wondering if anyone here has Arnold Chiari 1 Malformation? My Thorasic spine is also enlarged. I also have Multiple sclerosis, and was wondering if anyone is in the same boat I am, and how and what type of medications do they take for it. They say that the Arnold Chiari is caused by a form of spine bifdea, which my father was sprayed with Agent Orange in Vietnam.
TLC from Texas
My 33 year old daughter has Arnold Chiari I malformations and her father is a US Navy Vietnam war veteran, served 1970-1973. I precisely remember a letter he wrote to me (and I still have all those letters) where he said that they were performing unreps (loading and unloading stores on and off the ship) and a barrel of Agent Orange had burst the seal in the 100+ degree heat and leaked all over him. He then said he and a couple of others were then hosed down by others on the ship.
When she was diagnosed at age 19 it was my very first thought that this birth defect was caused by that exposure of Agent Orange on her father. My daughter was also a fraternal twin and her twin died in utero (appx 20-24 weeks - no exact way of knowing, there were no ultrasounds in 1974). I've always instinctively known that what killed her twin caused her birth defect. I had one miscarriage before becoming pregnant with my daughter and her twin.
Reading your post is the first confirmation I've ever had that my instincts were on target.
My daughter had very, very minor effects from AC until she was 19 and had an immediate and extreme brain swelling. Prior to that, she did not have anything present that was life altering. She did have seizures (non-febrile) while eating in her high chair when she was 11 months old. A full neuro workup then showed nothing.
As a child, and even into adulthood, she had trouble swallowing pills which we now realize is a common AC symptom. She could not pick up small objects on the floor easily such as coins. Also been noted as an AC symptom.
Her severe presentation was almost fatal. Her brain swelled and she began passing out if she did simple things such as combing her hair (reaching over her shoulders) or reaching for a box on a shelf. She believes this abrupt presentation was related to her being at an amusement park the day before with her younger brother and riding a high-speed roller coaster.
She survived that event without surgery, but by changing a few things in her life. Since that event she sleeps propped at an angle. She has even slept sitting up in a chair on bad days to aid drainage of cebrospinal fluids. She did take a prescription diuretic, but the side effects were so bad that she switched to a natural diuretic that she's taken for over 12 years.
My daughter has one natural child. Her pregnancy was a good one, but her delivery (by scheduled C-section) was difficult. She was considered an extremely high risk pregnancy. She has not elected to have another child, in her words, "to not push her luck".
Hope that some of this information helps. I wonder how many other children of Vietnam vets have similar birth defects. The greatest power of the internet is the ability to share and learn from others. It's also the greatest freedom we have.
My husband, now deceased, was a medevac helicopter pilot in Viet Nam, 1969-1970. He was on the groud daily, picking up wounded and dead, but I am only assuming he was exposed to Agent Orange.
My daughter was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari (I) malformation in 2007, age 29. She also has an assortment of auto immune diseases. She had decompression surgery in August 2007.
This week my son, age 33, was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari (I) malformation. there is no evidence that this condition is anywhere else in our family. Since this is a relatively rare condition, congenital (a form of birth defect), the alarms starting sounding. Could this be related to Agent Orange? I'd appreciate any and all thoughts on the subject. Thanks.
I have Chiari Malformation type 1 & 2. Symptoms of both. Caused by being prematurely born by 6 weeks and a anit depressant vaccine they injected my mother while prego. I was hit by a drunk driver while riding my bike at age 13. Fractured my skull. @ years later is when the nightmare began to take effect. Balance issues, sensitive to sound & light. Can not tilt my head back, tunnel vision, short torso and longer legs, knee tissue degeneration, chronic headaches, neck pain. Had a decompression in 2009. Syringomyelia as well. It was bad. Lost vitals twice on operating table left side of brain. Learned how to walk, dress myself and shit again. Good times lol.
I read water fasting can cure MS or at least it can help ease some of symptoms, so about 2 weeks ago i decided to start fasting for 21 days and now i'm in day 12 of my water fast, first 3-4 days was hell and i was so hungry up to day 7 and now hunger is gone i feel like i can continue this more than 21 days that i aimed for.
I read so many about the benefits of water fasting for MS, but some said 21 days, some other said 40 days, and another said that it should be decided by expert to do the fasting between 21 to 42 days and i really don't have that kind of experts around me, so far whoever i talked to about the fasting just warned me to don't do it.
Now wandering anyone here can help me to decide or give me any suggestion, guidance.
all helps appreciated.
If MS was caused by chemicals/toxins then yes it can help or cure. If it was caused by microbes then you could make it worse by weakening your immunity by fasting.
Here's the abstract from a research paper about evidence pointing to a microbial cause of MS http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/73/4/439.full
It is proposed that multiple sclerosis may be transmitted chiefly by sexual contact. Arguments favouring this include: migration studies that suggest a transmissible agent in adolescence; clusters of multiple sclerosis which have occurred in low prevalence areas following entry of young males; the similarity of multiple sclerosis to tropical spastic paraplegia, a known sexually transmitted infection with resemblance to primary progressive multiple sclerosis; an increased rate in drug misusers; a similar age of onset and sex pattern to that found in sexually transmitted disease; increased incidence of multiple sclerosis in those using oral contraceptives; low multiple sclerosis rates in societies with a strict moral code; longitudinal shifts in sex prevalence that show an increase in women after the sexual revolution of the 1960s; and important exceptions to the worldwide distribution corresponding to countries with permissive attitudes to sex. Family, conjugal pair, twin, and adoption studies are compatible with an infectious cause of multiple sclerosis if this is sexually transmitted. It is not proposed that sexual transmission is the only cause but that inherited factors create a susceptibility to a sexually transmitted neurotropic agent. It is hoped this hypothesis might encourage a new direction of neurological research.
The Atlantic Monthly (Feb '99) has an interesting cover article on the 'New Germ Theory' being suggested by Darwinian scientists. The premise, with some supporting evidence, is that many of the killer/troubling diseases like heart disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Alzheimers are in good part due to bacterial and viral infections. A few early studies, for example, have found higher antibodies to a specific bacteria in heart disease patients, and HHV-6 virus is a suspect in MS cases. They discuss how remote nations will have zero cases of MS, then suddenly the incidence of this disease explodes, suggesting an infectious pathogen as the cause.
The best systemic fighter of microbes is the Beck blood electrifier. I used it to get rid of a 16 year viral infection.
to undertake the water fast and to get over that difficult part. I will reflect and see what / if I have anything specific to share with you that might be beneficial, and return to this thread later.
(A little busy now)
my first impression/intuition is that 21 days sounds better than 40. I'll elaborate on that soon.
It seems at higher concentrations of CD that some are having problems with the taste of CD. Don't want to add Sugar to the mix so is Barley Greens powder one of the green drinks that are being used with this protocol? What is the best green juice of them all?
Also I have been asked if eating fruits like bananas, berries around the time of the drink is going to dilute the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement to any extent?
My lymph glands are draining well now but is there any way to accelerate this process? Has anyone added extra citric acid to the diluting water? Thank you so much.
Jurassic Greens, Heavenly Greens, Alkalive Green, Green Kamut.
These are all mixes of organic wheat grass, kamut grass, barley grass, alfalfa, etc...
Barley grass is great, but I personally like a combination, for both nutrition and taste.
I don't have too much problem if I take Miracle-Mineral-Supplement after eating fruit, as I do if I take it near less healthy foods. But, I will also say that even fruit will feed candida in my opinion. It might be a good idea to keep the higher glycemic fruits to a minimum for the first few weeks on the protocol, sticking to grapefuits, lemons, limes...
Dr. Gabriel Cousens, and Dr. Robert Young both promote this idea of limiting fruit during the earlier (transitional) stages of cleansing.
Again, though, I don't think there is any perticular problem with MMS and fruit ... but it is probably a good idea to try to take MMS more often on an empty stomach.
"My lymph glands are draining well now but is there any way to accelerate this process? Has anyone added extra citric acid to the diluting water? Thank you so much."
The only way to accelerate it is to do more MMS. (assuming you are already pre-activating with citric acid )
You have been doing really well ... if you accelerate things, you may quickly enter a period of nasty detox symptoms. And, since you have had such frail health in the past, that could prove very difficult for your body.
Why not just keep doing what you are doing, and make sure you are drinking a liter of water per 40lbs of body weight per day, and shifting your diet gradually to alkaline?
Greetings from India!
I saw a very encouraging post from you regarding using low dose Miracle-Mineral-Supplement in pregnancy.I have been actively detoxing since over one year with Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , liver flushes, raw foods, fasting and the likes. I have just conceived this month and would want to maintain all the hard work I have done with cleaning my body even during pregnancy . In the past, I have suffered from hashimoto thyroiditis, type 2 diabetes and miscarriages. Of course I am much healthier now and conceived naturally at an advanced maternal age .
I really liked the idea of green babies as you have mentioned. Will you be kind enough to guide me about where to get help from?
I am from India and I have limited resources.
Thanks so much...
I use it daily with my Miracle-Mineral-Supplement and wheat grass powder. It is widely recognized as safe for candida and bacterial issues. It won't feed these organisms, in fact it is a mild preservative meaning it has some anti-septic value.
This is the only sweetener I use, and have done so for at least a year now. It draws in water molecules and is well known to increase blood volume drawing water deeper into muscle tissue. (so I have read) In fact the military uses it often, as they did during the golf wars to prevent dehydration.
The one downside with regard to Miracle-Mineral-Supplement is that it will help you retain water longer, so if you are consuming glycerin every time you consume water you might slightly hinder your detox pathway as it will take a little longer to leave your system. My opinion is that if you continue drinking water throughout the day, this is negligible. I have a theory that the consumption of glycerin with the MMS blended water might turn out to enhance the dose, so long as you consume non-glycerin water throughout the remainder of the day.
Another interesting point is that it is neither a fat nor a carbohydrate. Because the FDA did not have a category that fit with this substance, they chose to classify as a carb - which is wrong.
It does have a caloric value, about 27 calories per tsp which means it provides a source of energy as well.
I like to mix it with nice pure coconut oil to make a creamy sweet dip with homemade almond crackers. Nothing like a full-on anti-bacterial dessert!
It works well with fruit to make soft-serve gelato, mix with apples and cinnamon for apple pie, blend with unsweetened cocoa for a thick chocolate syrup.
It has some very interesting properties. The more you cook with it, the more you find it acts like no other substance. It actually 'warms' coconut oil all by itself to make it creamy at room temp, yet it keeps a fruit blend from freezing solid.
Why not take every chemical poison that is not growing out of the ground, hype it up like you do, even though it is not a food and in your mind as you have already done mad it a food. You can eat it for years and we will see if you live or die. OK.
If you have seen children with cheek or forehead smeared, whether inside muscles feel lumps, if your general condition is bad, if tired too quickly, if you hurt a certain part of the body ruled, read below. You might thank me once.
Lyme , Morgellons, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis - MS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - CRPS, Cronical Fatigue Syndrome - ME, Diabetes, Cancer and other "so-called emerging" or autoimmune disease are stages of the same disease caused by contamination unseen pollution. Lyme is a mild form. Morgellons is the most serious. If the pollution has not been eliminated, you have no chance to heal. This disease destroys the cells and organs, neglected, can lead to death. It is the mother of all diseases. Unfortunately doctors have failed in the race. They are systematically misinformed. Not knowing the real cause of these sufferings they invent diseases. In fact it deals with the effects. But the cause is there. The cause has not been removed. The cause was not disclosed.
I will reveal the cause.
Many are trying to hide the truth about Lyme and Morgellons. Truth wearing gray clothes.
I had my first IUD placed back in October. I have been spotting or bleeding since but thought that was somewhat normal. then recently in the past month I feel my life has been turned upside down. I started having strange numbing tingling in my left foot and toes. then it moved to my left arm, hands and fingers. I also had a lot of joint pain (more than normal- have had joint pain for several years) I had a sore neck, and I felt like i had knots all over my back. so I went to the doctor and to a chiropractor. the chiropractor thought I should see a neurologist - thought I might have something neurologically wrong autoimmune or m.s. the doctor thought I had arthritis and possibly a rotator cuff tear. I had blood work and xrays done and all came back fine. no arthritis, no tears, nothing. then my symptoms started getting worse. hard to walk, dizzy, blurry vision, pain in eyes, pain in muscles, twitching, tremors, then I was at work and realized all of a sudden that my legs were so weak i could barely walk. my husband started searching the internet and found something about possible silicone poisoning from mirena IUDs that mimic M.S. (multiple sclerosis symptoms). as of right now I have 17 symptoms of M.s. I am going to get my IUD taken out ASAP but does
anyone know if an IUD can actually CAUSE m.s. it sounds like some people are still having symptoms long after removal. I am scared and just want to be prepared.
I know a lot of us have been tested for MS (myself included) because of the similarities, and at least one had brain lesions, but I can't remember anyone on this board who actually got diagnosed with MS. All the symptoms you describe are Mirena symptoms - you need to get it removed ASAP! And recovery may take a while. You definitely want to get tested for MS however, to hopefully rule it out. Many have had low Vitamin D levels and Thyroid, and many get their hormone levels tested as well. You might try some of the private Facebook groups, there are a lot of women on there you could ask too. "Ban Mirena IUD" and "Women with Mirena IUD Side Effects Support Group" are a couple good ones. Good luck, and hope you'll post back with your progress!
I can't answer about whether it causes MS, but I can certainly say it does seem to cause symptoms that mimic it. Tongue tingling was one of my symptoms that drove me to the doctor. My PCP immediately sent me for a brain scan, but fortunately there were no lesions and a follow-up visit with specialists determined that my symptoms were not clustering enough to suggest MS.
It is terribly scary, though. I hope you can have the Mirena removed ASAP. I have had lingering side effects, but nowhere near what I encountered toward the end when I had it in. Good luck
I haven't looked into this but I just had a fairly major episode of psychosis which I fully attribute to the Mirena IUD; while MS is generally considered a 'medical' issue there is some debate as to whether it is better classified as a mental health disorder and the diagnosis between bi-polar disorder and MS is often confused (with individuals being initially diagnosed with bi-polar and later reassessed as having MS). I was diagnosed as bi-polar II, 3 years ago so I should not have been so stupid as to realize the IUD was a terrible idea for me but i didn't think it through.
Anyway i got it out 2-days ago, got my period today and feel completely back to normal. I should note that I am never anxiety and stress free (I wonder if anyone is?) so I still have anxiety associated with the follow up psychiatrist assessment and the 3rd diagnosis this hosiptal might give me (first one was 'mild depression') and whatever new drugs they will tell me I need to be on for life in order to be considered a reasonable member to allow into society. Maybe we should just admit Women's liberation was a joke? The hormones and mood swings that are part of being a Women have been deemed unnacceptable, it might be easier to accept this if we weren't all pretending at the same time that Women should be considered equal.
There is no debate on whether ms is a mental health disorder. It is an actual medical condition. There are lesions on your brain and Obands in your spinal fluid. Nerve studies to show that nerves are damaged. Secondary problems such as trigeminal neuralgia which is the most painful condition known to man. Anyways I came here to see if there is a correlation with ms and the mirena coil. Sorry to be so defensive it's just very annoying it ruins peoples lives to be said it's not a medical condition. There are hundreds of people in wheelchairs who may disagree with you on that one.
Most of your post doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but I will correct one point that you are terribly wrong about. M.S. Is an autoimmune disorder. It is a disease in which the autoimmune disorder attacks the myelin sheaths of the axons of the central nervous system. It is most certainly NOT a mental health disorder and is in no way related to bipolar disorder. There is no current debate, nor has there ever been, in labeling M.S. as a mental health disorder.
There is no confusion is misdiagnosising M.S. As bipolar disorder. The two illnesses could not be more different. M.S. Is diagnosed by the presence of lesions in the brain and spinal cord, inflammation in the brain or spinal cord and at least two episodes of symptoms. The list of symptoms do not even remotely resemble bipolar disorder. Numbness, partial paralysis, blindness are just a few of the symptoms of M.S.
Do a little reading before you spread misinformation.
nyone care to identify these culprit in each of these pictures?
I'm fairly new to this forum, , forums in general. I am pretty classic case with a long history-
I have become obsessive with my photgrapghy, all using my digital camera
. A doctor said I had Morgellans a year ago, I'm not sure, all symptoms, tested positive for the Lyme disease a year ago (age 54) . I just had to constantly address health concerns me of my life.
- I am so tired of feeling so awful. I d can talk about my current treatment, past treatment and future treatment plans later I am mixing mostly only with a few Western.
I am tired, & want to post this and the photos....before I can't anymore. Been trying to do this for months.i would love some feedback on my photos.
The mental aspect is just as hard if not harder than the physical. I question a lot of these things but I also just want to start posting my photo somewhere. If you think there's another place that's more suited to my post please guide me. Below is a brief summation of medical history ......current symptoms,all are in the areas of Candida,Morgellans, (MGD) ascaris,worms eggs gross frikken stuff ....
Bad bad skin stuff, see photos.vision in left eye, bad - intense weight loss initial and now I'm heavier than I have ever been, and I m scared I might be really sick, that there is a more direct, method to treat me, and I may not make it cos I'm struggling so with just day to day living stuff,,,,,
Dx with Endometriosis at age 19, complications with reproductive system and ie. Quite a few spontaneous ABs - grapefruit size tumor outside of my ovary, eventually after 2'surgeries, one emergency, I had complete hysterectomy at age 39. In between that time I had been dxed with MS at age 27 &'again, approx, at age 41....memory, see,short term is shot. Long term not so bad. Overweight at moment. Amd under stress
LOL-ing again at your lack of comprehension skills.
And, the rest is history. one year later, I’m not 100% but I’d say I’ve improved 80%, at least. According to my LLMD, the 20 months would be a minimum, and she said some chronic Lyme patients have to endure treatment for the rest of their lives! I honestly doubt that will be me, but we’ll just have to see. I’ll be just fine to continue on like this, taking CS for at least another year (maybe 2?) recovering and regaining my strength, my health, my life. Jordan Fisher Smith in Under Our Skin said it took him 3 years to feel “normal”, and he wasn’t sick for as long as I was. I’ve got patience, and I’m so thankful to God for showing me that there was a better way to fight Lyme… A way that I can afford and doesn’t cause any extra suffering. God is good. Nattokinase and Serrapeptase are also important parts of my recovery, as they dissolve biofilms and make the CS more effective (also help with detox).
80% improved is good, but also overly optimistic since Lyme patients always exaggerate improvements. Lyme also adapts to treatments. And CS was not the only treatment here.
So if you actually read it you would not claim that this person was cured. Improved yes, cured no. And if you actually read what you posted you would have seen the use of other treatments.
CS oversold by grizz as a cure.
And if you stayed on topic you would not have posted about your lung problems, which I neither care about nor believe you since you said it was Iodine that cured you.
So many lies coming out of your mouth it's hard to keep track.
No one on 'THE' curezone ever has reported a cure from Lyme disease from using CS.
Go ask your masters.
Newport (your master's master) still has Lyme disease. He was experimenting with CS even before you were tormenting people on MDA when you were 200 pounds overweight.
Do you know what a cure is?
A cure is something you take that eliminates the disease. It's not something that improves it for a short amount of time, or something that you have to take indefinitely to suppress symptoms.
You have nothing to say to this woman who is desperate for help? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?
Colloidal Silver is a miracle that safely kills all bacteria, fungus, virus & single cell parasites, and all of this with no side effects. It is superior to antibiotics & even kills antibiotic resistant disease.
I suggest that you spend some quality time researching Colloidal Silver instead of bad mouthing it.
You made the outrageous claim that CS will cure lyme (and a host of other diseases).
Not a single credible person on CZ has ever posted that CS cured their lyme disease.
Newport, probably one of the most experienced supplement people on curezone, and your master's master, has great information on lyme disease, and also how complex it is. Since he is not cured, and he has extensive experience with CS, what conclusions can be drawn about your outrageous claims?
All I did was call BS on your false claim.
(and your misrepresentation of at least one of the links you posted as 'proof', which you used as a licence to call me a troll - the irony is deep)
That in and of itself is help because if this woman wants a cure then CS surely is not it.
I directed her to the parasite forums where she can get proper help.
Now you are trying to deflect me calling BS and your lying by attacking me.
So are you going to admit that you got carried away and made false claims about CS and lyme?
READ: not what CS did for your lung problems
(even though you lied about this one too since you claimed that Iodine was what cured you)
But for the record, I didn't post to you, I posted on a public forum about an outrageous unproven claim you made that CS cures lyme disease.
The very first link you used as proof was all I needed to read to see that you were lying - as you either deliberately twisted the testimonial or unwittingly did not know how to comprehend what she wrote. I'm not sure which one is worse, flip a coin.
You responded with personal attacks to steer attention away from your blunderous comment.
Then you shifted to YOUR lung problems, which does not help anyone at all. At least I stayed on point.
Now it seems that instead of just admitting that you have a flair for exaggeration and that in fact CS will not cure lyme disease you have to feign indignation and pretend that I am the villain.
I am not the one lying here.
Whatever fantasy suits you is fine with me.
Point of fact again, though you may be indignant and so may be the OP, I have helped by steering her to the parasite forum for real help, not lies and exaggerations.
I see that you still have not answered my question to you about retracting your inflammatory statement about CS. Instead you choose to divert the subect / run away.
No person minds feedback on postings good or bad as long as it is respectful.
Tit for tat postings drive people away, the very person who you are trying to help in your posting.
Lots of people give different feedback that is what debating on a forum is all about but it gets childish when you get grown ups trying to out do each other on silly comments.
If you don't agree with a posting say something like this may work better or I tried that but did not work for me or can I add to this posting what I think may work better, just because you do not agree with someone does not give anyone the right to put the posting down or act like a joker.
We are all unique, what works for one person may not work for the next.
A friendly forum welcomes lots of people but a dog eat dog forum keeps them away.
....the LOL I believe was a typo. Back off it any and all ..the sarcasm/biting tones as well, ..its.off topic and the sarcasm it has generated is not intelligent nor helpful...makes me want to not participate.....peace to you all maybe I do not understand how you are using it. This LOL.... But I have a mind, and have done and will continue do my research and make choices. Yes, I am looking for positive interaction ....
Welcome to curezone. Curezone details all of the cleanses that are recommended for improving health. The idea is to work your way up to the very effective liver flush, and in most cases, a series of Liver Flushes will dramatically improve your health. Since you are in your fifities, you probably need to cleanse the bowel first over a few weeks, either with colonic irrigation or Oxypowder . All humans are infested with parastes so don't feel alone. The purpose of cleansing is to dramatically reduce your infestation. I would commence taking Diatomaceous Earth (silica) asap. This will dramatically improve your health.
Thank you...I am working towards getting in a new home that is cleanse friendly i.e. Laundry, bathroom close by, clean, not old and moldy. I've had some rough experiences with the cleanses but think I went too fast. I am scared, and I do appreciate your response-
Cleanses always will bring a herxheimer reaction of some degree, which means, you will feel sicker. Feeling sicker is actually a good sign meaning that critters are dying and your cleanses are successful. Dying candida and parasties always make you feel terrible. There is no way to avoid a herxheimer reaction so do not feel you went too fast. You can however decide to slow down to lessen the herxheimer effects. Good luck and you have the support here to get you through.
Not true. Your body regenerates new cells in all organs everyday, brain especially. Esophagus and stomach lining change every fifteen days. This is why fasting is even more important when body regenerates a lot of new cells, when digestive system shuts down, which BTW, takes most energy compared to other processes in our bodies.
You do not know that. Multiple people have strokes after long dry fast in Jordan. They can't all be toxic. I am not sure I can ever fast again. But either way I am detoxing and cleansing to be sure. I wish I had the answer as why so many die after long fasts. This is my 3rd stroke and number 2 was from cipro and so this may be tied in to that also.
This does not concern you at all and you are an idiot. My blood test came back that I have the blood of a 20 year old and so being an EXPERT means I know what i am talking about. I am 63 and have perfect blood, no diabetes, no high blood pressure, I don't smoke or drink. The only thing I have is that I went on a long fast.
So when you become an expert, let's talk instead of a bullshitter.
I work for a company that sells medical wraps to help heal soft tissue injuries...which has nothing at all to do with this forum or this post. However, I got a call the other day from a man who is suffering from MS at the most extreme end I have ever heard of. His internal temperature rises to a fever everyday and so he can't go outside during these warmer months. He also finds because he is bound to a hospital bed or wheel chair, the memory foam in between adds even more heat. He found the cold packs that we sell and because of the thin comfortable design, he will be able to wrap them around his core and under his back while laying down, with great ease. He said it was an answer to his prayers. It's reasons like this that make my job worth working. I really just wanted to share this story as it touched me beyond words. I hope that others out there may find benefit from these cold wraps or something similar, that will help get you through these hot summer months. http://kingbrand.com/Back-Ice-Packs-and-wraps.php?REF=46PV4
Clonus is a condition that results in involuntary muscle spasms and most commonly affects the muscles at the end of a limb. Clonus can be a condition in itself, or it can be a symptom of another condition.
Clonus mainly affects the knees, ankles, upper and lower arm muscles, and the jaw. These involuntary muscle contractions can make everyday activities quite challenging and even lead to debilitating fatigue.
Clonus is often confused with myoclonus, a condition in which the muscle uncontrollably jerks. A person cannot control clonus and living with it can be quite challenging. Here we will outline the causes, symptoms, tests, and treatments of clonus to help you have a better understanding of the condition.
Clonus causes and symptoms
Clonus is caused by a disconnect of information flowing between the central nervous system and the affected muscles. Clonus most commonly affects muscles at the ends of limbs, including ankles, wrists, etc.
Clonus can also be caused by a medical condition such as multiple sclerosis, Huntington disease, spinal cord and brain injuries, meningitis, stroke, upper motor neuron lesion, spastic paraparesis, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, Brown-Sequard syndrome, and cerebral palsy. Uncovering the underlying cause of clonus is important to help determine which modes of treatment will yield the greatest success.
The main symptom of clonus is involuntary muscle spasms. These muscle spasms can be sudden, shock-like, intensive, and frequent. Clonus may affect only one muscle or several muscles, and it can spread to different muscle groups. A severe case of clonus can even impair speech or movement.
Please help me! It started off with a slight sensation of wormlike creatures (really just general crawling sensations) underneath my scrotum and the skin between the scrotum and the anus. I just went about my day and thought nothing of it. Then they progressively got worse. I felt wormlike creatures crawling around in my legs at a steady crontrolled pace, the creatures being of all different sizes but the same shape. Note I have not actually seen anything just felt. And I am not on drugs and am not making this up. Okay so back to the point here, they traveled down to my feet and at this time they were only in that area there was nothing in my torso neck and head. In the morning I would feel an intense sensation like they would go into my penis and start pushing outward as if trying to escape and then give up and go into the thigh. I felt one go into an area in my leg and the area went cold and felt as it a liquid dripped down my thigh on the inside and traveled down the thigh and into the calve and when it hit the foot area it was gone. Over the next couple of days I felt worm like creatures travel up into my arms and I was slurring my speech really badly and was off balance, I had horrible brain fog and I felt these things crawling like crazy. So I was admitted to the emergency room with a blood pressure of 150/90 and all the people there thought I was nuts. I finally got out with my blood pressure back at normal and I went home. Well the feelings didnt go away their now worse then ever. They have entered my torso and I feel pins and needles in my stomach. A few days ago there was absolutely no crawling sensations in my head. I then felt something travel up my neck into my head and the next morning I felt a HUGE worm like creature crawl across my brain on the outside and stop. When I wiggle my head or grind my teeth it retracts or moves. I now feel like theres something in my eyes. And it feels like there is a whole host of worms in my brain and my face and my lip all the time. Ill feel a bunch of random symptoms such as it feels like theres a hole in my lungs and it hurts really bad when I breathe in all the way (could a parasite have swum through the tissue?) and then within half an hour the sensation was gone. I woke up with my jaw hurting alot. Im tired absolutely all the time. I get intense headaches in a very specific spot and it soon clears up (could this be a worm digging into my brain?) The symptoms are getting worse. My doctor gave me a stool sample and said it was clear. He says I have no parasites and that these symptoms are all in my head. He says that it isnt possible to feel worms moving around inside you. I got a bloodtest and it turns out that my vitamin b6 level is around 56mg which is considered an overdose amount. Some of the symptoms are neurological symptoms and parasitosis. But their just taking about tingling sensations in the arms and legs not things moving around inside you. So im here to ask all of your opinions. Do you think I have some kind of serious parasitic infection or is it deffinitely all in my head and being caused by the vitamin b6? Thank you all.
Well we worm our cats, dogs, horses, livestock etc... if they all have worms what would make us so special that we wouldn't have them? We do. I personally use Humaworm (its on curezone has its own forum). I have visibly seen white worms and liver flukes and other stuff. The doctors do not want to admit that they could or do exist in us. Hence why I found Humnaworm which works great. The first time the die off was awful but since then I haven't really experienced anything to horrendous. I intend to continue using Humaworm probably for the rest of my life, it works and it works ALL over the entire body.
I have a fair amount of knowledge about parasites due to my own situation.
First of all western med docs are poorly trained in parasitology even infectious disease doctors. testing is highly unreliable, even the inf disease doctor I saw admitted that. the proper lab to test is MetaMetrix GI Effects Stool test, the reason this is the best is that they use PCR testing which can find a needle in a haystack. If you are having gastrointestinal issues (which would indicate a possibility of parasites) then this test will find them. If you do the test do not do the complete profile but opt for the parasite/bacteria panel.
It is possible for parasites to disseminate which means they can leave the gastrointestinal tract and migrate to other body organs (although this appears to be rare).
If this is the case (dissemination), alternative treatments (herbal formulas) are not going to be that effective but rather prescriptive meds would be the choice (agents like Albendazole).
There is a parasite forum and a parasite drug forum here on curezone, although I would warn you that some of the information is misleading. You need to seek expert advice and not from amatuer parasitologists although some can have beneficial information.
kill tapeworms. Zymex II kills (digests) them. I just bought it for $14.00 for a 30 day supply. Doc Sutter says you should repeat the process two times. I would give you the same advice I'm following...even if you don't know what parasites you have, take it, it's cheap and worth it just in case. If I were in your shoes, I'd take them both (and I am) and call the companies and ask if they could overnight them to you due to your extreme situation.

Hi I too have the same exact symptoms. I had had these worms like things in my body for 3 years. your right the doctors do say I'm crazy . but the worms are in my thighs and move to my anus to my crotch area even in my penis. they seem to come up to anus and i can hear them breathing . but they go everywhere and anywhere. I have been looking for a solution for quite a long time. the skin on my thighs have gone dead as they feel like they are eating my fleash from the inside. if you find a cure or a doctor please let me know and if i find a cure or a doctor i will let you know. thanks alot. nice to know that i'm not alone in this. ps. ever since i had these worms i have been aneimic. that ought to tell the doc but the don't care.
thank you all on your imput. glad to know im not crazy lol and ill be sure and let you know if I find a solution poster above me. Well to give you all an update ive pretty much plateaud ive been to a neurologist to rule out the posibility of nerve damage because my left foot has partial numbness and i get random pains such as burning sensations in my fingers when i run them under water. And ive been off balance and still have the brain fog. I used to get goose bumps constantly even in a warm room. and my neck has been crackling when i twist it and that never used to happen before. my jaw also builds up something inside it that makes a very loud cracking sound at first when i move my jaw from left to right and then a squishing sound. maybe a cyst? there are some days when im jittery and others where im very tired. Ive also noticed an increase in floaters. anyway ive been rambling so sorry for that lol. The neurologist says that the symptoms are not related to my nerves...which means it must be real right? ive also been noticing really foamy pee lately if that means anything. Im gonna order some humaworm to see if it does anything. Ill post afterwards to let you all know. Thank you all for posting! God Bless.
I am happy to come accross this site. Pls, I need any one's advise that will help. I took a worm expeller more than 10 years ago and since then I have been feeling plenty worms moving around my body. They went to the head first. As i took more worm expeller to kill them, they went to other parts of my body (eye, my chest, back,leg, joint, all over). The worm expellers are not able to kill them and the medical Doctors cannot help.
It has even gone worst at the moment. Once I eat any food presently they will start moving. It is really painful and furstrating as they move in my body.
Someone should please advice, particularly if you had a similar case and you were able to resolve it.
I am writin from West africa, can I get help closer to me here since I don't stay in US to acquire the products mentioned earlier in this site.
Hoping to get some response soon.
Thks in advance.
From Mr. Daniel Ade
I can see you wrote this post long time ago in 2009 and I just found it today 03/03/2016.
I has been trying for years to find someone else that could feel the same symptoms because I am not crazy and now I see I am not alone with this.
I has been feeling wormlike moving around inside my body since 2007, I already visit different kind of doctors: Neurologist, infection deseas specialist, gastroenterologist, rheumatologist; and nothing change, all of them do not accept that there are parasites in USA, they always asked me if I traveled to another country and I didn't. They think that only a person who traveled out of the country MAY have the possibility to have parasites (their mind is closed with that), they don't keep their mind open to any possibility and that is why they are not trained on this.
I think all this symptoms are new and strange for them and that makes me think this parasite is an undiscovered yet.
When my anus has been itchy I collected something that look like eggs and I show them to some doctors and they didn't pay attention, WHAAAT!, they are idiots or what because the answer is in front of them.
I just need to find a real profesional that is not only interested to get money from the insurance, someone who can run the extra mile and investigate or refer me to a research crew. BUT THAT LOOK IS IMPOSSIBLE!!
I hope one day we could fight together and show them that they were wrong making us to have a nightmare life with these symptoms and don't get the appropriate treatment.
I hope to get an update from you. Tell me if you found the cure or a good doctor.
No matter how long and confusing is the list of symptoms a person has, from chronic fatigue to infertility to mental problems, I am sure to find only two things wrong: they have in them pollutants and/or parasites. I never find lack of exercise, vitamin deficiencies, hormone levels or anything else to be a primary causative factor." 'Cure for all Diseases' page 2.
So----get her book (free download here), do her parasite cleanse WITH zapper, and then start detoxing. It worked for me. :) And you don't feel parasites; you're feeling toxins causing your blood vessels or nerves to spasm.
... Here is a most interesting concept, over boost the immune system to stop autoimmune diseases, instead of blocking the immune system. He uses very high doses of vitamin D along with other supplements, such as B2, K2, Magnesium, Boron and others depending on the person to force remission. He is using 1,000 iu’s per kg of body weight per day. NOTE: this is not something that anyone can do safely, without working with a knowledgable doctor and doing the proper monitoring. ... ... ...

When I saw this post of yours I had hoped that you would eventually realize your questions are the kind that may best be answered by yourself based on your experience with the Schulze Herbal Formula in question. Actual real life results versus suggested second-hand expectations are like this :)
1. frequent dashes to the bathroom? I do not know of good reason to expect this, neither based on Schulze's ample research information and anecdotal citations posted on his web sites, as well as my own regular use of IF1 for several years running as of this moment, but ..... *
2. IF2 expectations? Similar answer as 1 , but ..... *
3. doable while working? Seriously? If this is not a trick question but instead genuine, yes, absolutely, but .... *
4. people do anti-parasite? Since this is outside both the intended scope of topic for this forum and your specific selection of Schulze's Herbal Formulas, you may want to post in any of the various parasite formulas.
Best wishes with your use of Schulze Herbal Formulas!
* - Now that its been several days since you asked, what have been your experiences and results with using Schulze IF1 & 2?
>ophthalmoplegia: thiamine thiamine thiamine !!! and magnesium
>Severe brain fog worse in the morning, often comes with allergy like symptoms: B12 and thiamine
>Chronic eye irritation and light sensitivity: riboflavin
>Anxiety and depression: B12, thiamine, B3, vit D
>Poor appetite: lots of things cause this: B12, B3, B6, vit A
It's generally thought that unless you live in a third world country you can't be deficient in any nutrients. But special diets, being a vegetarian, avoiding dairy and eggs, alcohol consumption, or engaging in activities or having illnesses that strain the body can lead to deficiencies. Genetics can play a role in your ability to metabolize certain nutrients as well. Even just getting older puts you at risk because you lose the ability to absorb and metabolize nutrients as you age.
A thyroid issue can interfere with metabolism of B-vitamins. You said your thyroid is fine, but certain things can cause the TSH to be normal when there is still thyroid dysfunction. TSH is not a reliable test. T3 and T4 are not reliable either, because of the variability during the day and between serum samples from the same person. It's better to go off symptoms, and yours do sound a lot like a thyroid issue. But in my opinion, a thyroid issue is often a nutrient deficiency itself. It's kind of a vicious cycle though, because a low functioning thyroid then leads to nutrient deficiencies.
Low zinc levels results in reduced TSH and low thyroid function. Green and black tea contain fluoride which reduces TSH and lowers thyroid function. Taking melatonin has been known to do this as well.
I recommend you take a co-enzymated B-complex sublingual, plus extra thiamine, riboflavin which generally have no risk of overdose. Take magnesium as well, which is needed to metabolize thiamine. And a deficiency in magnesium can lead to thiamine deficiency, and the eye problems you're having.
I like Source Naturals Coenzymated B-Complex, and Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium.
I got a headache at first from taking the methylcobalmin (B12), but learned I just needed to take more when that happened. So don't let that discourage you if it happens. It just means you have a deficiency, and your body is robbing it from your brain shortly after it gets there. Headaches are a classic sign of B12 deficiency.
