I wanted to add my story. These things are not just a hideous nuisance, they probably came close to killing me.
First off, I'm a young 40ish female, great health, eat very healthy, hardly any Sugar or white flour, lots of whole grains and fruits and veggies, excercise 5x weekly. And extremely regular in the AM.
One day I didn't have my usual morning BM. Thought that was odd, but realized that I hadn't been eating much or drinking my 10 glass of water the last couple of days, so I vowed to get back on track. The next day....nothing. Getting weird, and I'm looking 4 mos pregnant. The 3rd day, 4th, 5th, nothing. I'm getting scared at this point, but not sure what's going on. By now I broke down and tried senna tea, then laxatives. Still nothing. I went to the emergency room at 2 weeks. They did a CT scan, and although it showed alot of feces, they could see no blockages. Told me to take magnesium citrate and that should clear it. Well it didn't work. By the third week I'm scared, double scared because I don't have health ins. (first time in life I'm without group medical). I went for a few colonics, cause it's cheaper than medical and worth a shot cause I didn't want a 200k med bill to open me up and remove it. Nothing much came out and this is not making sense. Well by by third colonic, the ND recommended I take raw garlic and onion to help relieve gas and bloat. It worked some actually, so I stuck with it for a few days. On the forth day, I got a small stool. About the size of a Mozzerella Stick. I got a plastic fork to see what consistency it was, and it just opened up and was like a cocoon of white spagetti nicely wrapped in a coating of lt brown feces. And one was floating. I was puzzled, cause it had been 3 wks since I ate whole wheat angle hair. I knew it wasn't pasta intact all this time in my gut, but I was too afraid to believe what I saw. I didn't know what to do, so I flushed.
I started looking up parasites, found that garlic is one thing that kills them, so I stuck with it for a few more days, then since nothing happened with my bowels and I was over 4 wks, I was getting scared, so I figured I needed to see the doctor and shell out some more money. But first, I figured I'd stick with the raw garlic and onion, since it obviously killed some. Four days after the mozz stick incident, I had the most beautiful clean BM. Oh, and I had another colonic, and more dead worms came out. They were like 6 in long, looked like 1/2 pcs of angel hair pasta in a mucus coat.
Well, I've gone for the last few days normally, so my obstruction must be clear. I still eat garlic, onion, pineapple, plain yogurt, ground cloves daily. I still feel movement and know something is still not right. I am getting pieces and long worm pcs out daily and with enemas (including garlic enemas). I had some Paranil left over from a colonix cleanse I did a couple of years ago, so I am taking those for now since they have the Wormwood and Black-Walnut in them.
So, I just wanted to thank everyone for sharing their stories, and although reading a couple of hundred pages of your posts made me feel better that I'm not alone.....I now realize that they are all not dead, and I have a long road ahead of me. Obstructions from a large mass of worms usually only happen to children since their intestines are small and easier to clog up, I'm very petite at 5'1, so that must be why it happened to me. Plus I obviously have a major infestation cause I have killed alot of them and still feel they are there. I'm kinda over the original "freaking out that I have worms" stage, and now am just concentrating on killing them. Full moon is in a couple of days, so I'm going to stick with what I'm doing for now, then next month get higher strength herbs and hit them all month with those. Then I'll suprise them with garlic again after that! It's funny, my sensations in my gut feel like instead of a mass of worms.....like I have one really big one. I read here where they get like garter snakes, so that's what I'm picturing inside me.
Well, if you stayed long enough to read my novel here, thanks. I didn't see any post about obstructions like mine, so I figured I'd add mine. I don't really recommend waiting like I did, but with no insurance, I had to ride it out. For me it seems to have worked out so far.......
