You're welcome but thanks for all your very helpful information.
Yes you've definitely taken a substantial hit losing 25 pounds of muscle/mass. Mine loss happened over 2 years.
I agree nothing is more frustrating to know all that good food and hard work (exercise) is down the drain or probably better to say down the toilet.
Your grammar is better then mine so nothing to worry about. Plus you can speak two language so you're certainly more intelligent.
I was actually not just surprised but also thrilled to see you were into Westin Price, and now even happier to see you are pursuing ND degree. Outstanding!!! We need more people on this forum like you, actually the world needs more people like you. Don't for get us little guys when you graduate.
Bastyr University has produced some amazing doctors that have gone on to making this world a much better place.
I agree with your approach to what you're eating and you obviously know what you're doing.
I also occasionally throw in some dairy but only if the dairy is raw, organic and grass-fed. Ghee, sometimes butter, a little goat cheese but none of them consistently.
I will add some raw, organic, grass-fed kefir for a few days after I finish the medication.
Excellent percentages you're consuming and I especially like your fat numbers. You'll make a great ND doctor.
I've got bags of organic grass-fed fat in my freezer.
I'm sure difficult for you to avoid the pasteurization with where you live. Maybe you'll get lucky one of these days and find a little farm hidden away close to you.
Your paragraph #3 was full of excellent information. Very helpful and thanks for taking the time.
I've been concern about how difficult the medication is on the body since I read so many people having a tough time. Many getting very sick and throwing up. You seem to be adjusting just fine. That is good news to me.
I share your concern regarding the fish praziquantel. I almost bought the same until I had a friend help me in Thailand.
Your paragraph #5 is 100% spot on. I'm following ICU's protocol and definitely seeing it all the way through. I believe it will solve my problem but there is a part of me that wants that absolute 100% all clear, which in my mind means tracking down the Diatrizoic Acid injection. I can't help but think if there is just one of those dam heads still attached it will regrow and start this whole nightmare all over again. So for me it is the drugs and the injection to know I'm all clean. Shada posted some good information regarding this in the parasite support forum.
I like your take on what happened when I took the Biltricide. Seems to fit exactly with what I'm feeling. It was just enough to take the edge off for a few days and now I'm slipping back again.
I have all three drugs needed. I got them from a pharmacy in Thailand and all the same medications they are using in the hospitals to kill the tapeworms.
I agree with your comments in paragraph 6. You need to have a clean diet before starting the medications which then will make the medications more effective.
Regarding the age question. Guess and let me know why you guessed the age you did.
Looking forward to your next updates when you have time.
Thanks again for taking the time to share. Please stick around after you get done to help and give advise.
