Couple of things to consider with any type of infusion bath.
How HOT is the water? How long do you stay in the hot water? More than 10 minutes?
When does the dizziness and headache begin? While you're in the tub? When you get out?
Often, a very hot bath is so soothing and relaxing, particularly if we're adding infusions in proper proportions. However, a hot, hot bath can also create oddball effects that include headaches and dizziness. This is most often caused when the tiny capillaries throughout the body expand and relax with exposure to the hot water for extended lengths of time. When we get out of the tub, the capillaries are dilated and a sudden rush of cooler air will cause them to contract, quickly, causing the symptoms you've described.
This is one of the reasons that there's always a "Keeper Of The Fire" at a traditional sweat. The Keeper delivers the heated stones inside of the sweat lodge, and tends the fire, etc., but they also assist folks who emerge from the lodge after prolonged exposure to the heat inside the lodge. They pour lukewarm water over the head and neck of the person, and the person places their head between their knees until they've adjusted to the change in temperature.
SO.........if this is the cause of the symptoms, you'll know if you wait for the bath to cool down to slightly above room temperature. If you can't soak for that long, then exit the tub INCHES at a time to allow your capillaries a chance to adjust to the dramatic temperature changes. Sit upright, then (if you can) sit on your knees with your legs tucked underneath your seat. Then, raise up onto your knees. Then, lift yourself to sit on the edge of the tub. Take your time, and see if this helps you.
Good luck to you.
I wanted to share what I've been going through to encourage the rest of you. Grab some tea and sit down—this is going to be some information!
I've been battling PCOS, teeth grinding, and digestive issues since I was about 11 years old (17 years ago). I’ve had chronic bloating—so much that some foods made me look 7 months pregnant! I suffered depression and anxiety, along with joint/muscle inflammation. I had sinus surgery for chronic infections when I was 18. Also, my mother was diagnosed with lupus, so “it runs in the family.”
3 years ago, I went to the doc, paranoid that the anal itching I had was caused by either an STD or parasites. The doc laughed me off and said, “It’s just irritation." Another doctor told me a year ago that I would need hormone help to have children, and her solution was a dose of progesterone and birth control.
As you can see, it became an out-of-control problem—never-ending inflammation, pain, and misery I thought I might be making up in my head.
But the question persisted: “Are there parasites living inside of me?”
On August 31, 2017 (11 days ago), I decided to listen to my gut feeling (haha) and bought pyrantel pamoate from the drug store, along with a parasite tincture from Sprouts grocery (in Austin, TX). I also already had some “Detox Tea” on hand.
Here’s what I bought:
“PARASITE CLEANSE” – tincture bought from Sprouts grocery in Austin, Texas
30 drops, 3x a day
- Quassia Wood
- Fresh Black (Green) Walnut Hulls
- Fresh Garrya Herb
- Clove Bud
- Bayberry Root Bark
“DETOX” – tincture bought from Sprouts
30 drops, 3x a day
- Fresh Burdock Root
- Yellow Dock Root
- Oregon Grape Root
- Dandelion Root
- Red Clover Blossoms
- Nettles Leaf
- Red Root
- Fresh Ginger Root
TRIPLE LEAF TEA – “Herbal Laxative” bought from HEB grocery store
1 hot cup of tea right before bed
- Senna leaf, stem
- Licorice root
- Ginger root
- Dandelion leaf
- Fo-ti (he shou wu) root
- Rhubarb root
- Sickle-pod senna seed
I took PARASITE CLEANSE for 8 days, adding in the DETOX and laxative tea. Holy shit—I mean that.
On DAY 2, a low-grade fever started (that’s still coming and going but finally broke 2 days ago), and I had a killer migraine headache that lasted for two days. DAY 4 brought a lot of abdominal pain and constipation and menstrual spotting (I haven’t had a period since early July).
Here’s a photo from DAY 2: (PS: I did not eat corn!)
DAY 4: (more of the same)
Fever continued until 2 days ago, still no period.
Now, since temporarily stopping the PARASITE CLEANSE a couple of days ago to focus on the DETOX, I’ve had crazy bowel movements… Today was the weirdest.
NOTE: For this cleanse, I've quit caffeine and (mostly) avoided sugars, breads, the usual. My diet has been salmon, cucumbers, kombucha, guavas, avocado... Gentle stuff + CILANTRO!
DAY 11 (This morning!)
9 AM - I urgently ran to the bathroom almost immediately upon waking up.
2:30 PM - again, urgent! What the hell are those white things? I didn't eat rice!
What do you guys think is going on here?
Obviously, I’ve had something! My stomach is flatter than it’s been in years, and I feel all the tension melting away with each “wave” of flushing. By wave, I just mean that I’ll start running a fever, need to lie down, and then 20 minutes later I’ll have a bowel movement and feel immensely better.
I think I’ve had pinworms, tapeworms, and potentially, liver flukes.
Every day, I feel a little better. It’s MIND BLOWING. I saw a TCM/acupuncturist on Friday, who said that I seem to be on the right track.
