"After 6 years of trying everything, I'm beginning to think diet makes no difference at all."
I have no idea what the correct answer is. Some people say avoid animal products at all costs, while others say eat meat. I don't know. I do know I cannot be 100% vegetarian for long periods of time, I get very weak. I also know that I cannot handle a lot of wheat and other grains, yet right now I crave carbohydrates in an almost unnatural manner.
My Naturopath, who is also my Chiropractor who is treating my spinal injury, recommends a diet that is 80-10-10. That is 80% fruits and veggies, 10% animal products, both meat and dairy, and 10% grains and starches. This diet is supposed to meet all nutritional requirements, be naturally alkalizing and keep blood sugar levels normal. When I follow it I feel better, but like I said, right now all I want is carbs-and a lot of them! That is one reason I think my tapeworm friend has produced a lot of kinfolk. I occasionally pass a segment. I am going to try and stick to this better than I have the last few weeks when I have given in to these out of control cravings.
By the way, some veggies are very high in protein. Broccoli is a good example. I really don't know what parasites like and don't like. Some say acidity invites parasites, while others say the opposite. I have a feeling pH is not that important, parasites by their nature are very adaptable. I feel that irritating herbs, a clean colon and simple diet may be the best combination, but I really don't know. All I can say is that from my experience that fasting and a parasite cleanse was very hard on my body, but I was pretty toxic at that time too. Would the same thing happen again? I don't know, I just feel like I need to warn new comers about a potential danger.
