I have cleared flukes 100%. I tapered Vitamins to maintenance, and have shut vits off for days at a time with no difference. I have shut off praziquantel.
Day 63 >Lowering Albendazole
Liver congestion, vision shows fluid retention in AM, even with removal of vits, better kidney flow, salt taste in mouth, cannot process even one piece of rum cake. Knocked ALBENDAZOLE down to single pill, or 200mg. Suspect it no longer has a function. DEC seams to be knocking down residual births, which are down 99.5%, that is down to a couple every 4 days. Knocked ALB down last night, dosing DEC alone. AM started one DEC 400mg, and one ALB 200 mg. Will do noon DEC, PM DEC with PPZ, PPM PPZ.
1. I intend to taper the dose and monitor health parameters, I will retest ELISA in 8 months to ensure I am free of the worms.
2. I suspect I caught Ascaris early, decades ago, they usually do no damage, or little health effect according to the research. When I started to eat raw fish, I suspect I got flukes, which killed the immune system, there is just no real way to track it back. I read a few studies that said once someone has been infected, the immune system is able to keep you Ascaris free, because it becomes hypersensitive. I know villages that have infected ground, continue to reinfect. I read a study lately that is monitoring water supplies in the USA, where the counts have climbed over the years. They attributed the increase to infected persons migrating around.
I have been fighting this thing for 8 years, without a clue of what I was fighting. The combination and dosing levels are not my first time to the party. I have tried to run up against this thing several times with no success. The third time is the charm.
The immune system now burns around worms cysts, showing me the body is now doing its job. I have craving for OJ, Fruit, and peas. Go figure.
