Hi Ollie, dont feel bad, Pinworms are verrrrrrrrrry common-- you'd be surprised.
The Barefoot Herbalist has experience treating people with this parasite. His deworme r will probably get them out -- purchase 2 bottles. He sells them at a discount when you purchase 2 bottles. I used it with much success.
To prevent reinfection, clean every single bit of your laundery and linens with hot water and add Tea Tree oil and Grapefruit Seed Extract in the wash.
Do not use any commercial chemical detergents or toiletries.
Keep the fingernails short and scrubbed. Clean them out periodically with a toothpick also.
Don't pick your nose-- but use a cotton swab instead to clean the nasal area to avoid passing on eggs into the sinus area.
Continue to keep the colon cleaned out-- They lay their eggs in the colon and anal area. You can even Drink Prune juice and Castor Oil to effectively purge out the colon!
Senna Tea at night will also do wonders the next morning.
You are on the right track with the raw garlic. They hate raw garlic.,
Also incorporate Oregano Oil -- and even dab some diluted oregano oil on your anus.
Sleep with undershorts in bed- to prevent eggs from getting on the linens and floor while sleeping.
Throw these shorts in the laundery the next morning. Keep a fresh change of undies.
Limit sugar--especially refined sugars, flour and dairy in your diet. Pinworms thrive on dairy , Sugar and flour.
Begin to use raw lemon in a large glass of water every morning. Eat the seeds.
Pinworms are known to die from lemon seeds, so save all the lemon seeds you can and eat them 3 times a day as well as Cloves (from the spice section at your grocer)
Papaya and raw pineapple will help your digestive tract and the papaya seeds will kill off many pinworms. The enzymes in the raw pineapple is also anti-parasitic.
Apple Cider Vinegar (unrefined--such as Bragg's Apple Cidar Vinegar) also will greatly fight the pinworm infestation as well as improve your ph balance.
Mh's number to order is 937-666-6107. I would get two bottles of his Dewormer and two bottles of Oregano Oil (costs $9.95 for one bottle last I saw)
The Oregano Oil will also come in handy in case of a flu outbreak, as oregano Oil has Virus killing properties.
