I'm including it here so I can find my way back to it. There's some interesting stuff on taking loads of salt every day.
I wonder if taking a lot of salt, whether in the form of salt flushes or in capsules, would kill them systemically?

I also began the salt regimen that I learned about from lymephotos.com (do read that site) and found it INCREDIBLY helpful. Buy the salt pills from the pharmacy--they're really cheap--one salt pill per 10lbs of body weight. Example, a 130lb person would take a total of 13 salt pills a day, split up into three doses.
These parasites HATE SALT. You will probably feel pretty sick (flu-like) for the first couple weeks, so many of them will be dying.
The salt kills the ADULT parasites, not the larva (which is what feels creepy crawly on your skin), and once you get through the initial heavy-die-off period, will help you feel a LOT better because it will have killed a lot of the bigger parasites that were feeding off of you. (Also, make sure whatever Vit. C you get doesn't have additives---a Vit. C powder is a good idea, preferably a non-acidic sort so that it's easy on your stomach, like Soloray's non-acidic powder or something).
After weeks of taking the salt, it may start to feel like the salt isn't doing anything anymore...but that's simply because you've killed all/most of the *adult* parasites. You can take a break for a week or something, if you want, but don't stop the salt for good. Keep up with the salt, so that as the larva mature into adults, you will kill them too.
It's difficult to kill the larva...as we all well know. Nightly bathing helps, as we've all learned, etc. I've found that pure medicinal grade lavendar oil, red cedar and peppermint oil seems to be really helpful (I get mine from Young Living...expensive, but highly medicinal so worth it, and it's cheaper if you sign up as a distributor, even if (like me) you never "distribute" anything). I just apply the oils lightly to wherever I'm feeling itchy.
The Canadian Red Cedar oil (from Young Living Essential Oils) was the most effective by far---amazing-- (and was used by native americans for skin parasites, actually), but I think they've discontinued it and are only offering Western Red Cedar now, so hopefully that works as well. For a quick store-bought itch aid, I've found the itch-relieving Gold Bond spray (found in most grocery stores near the calamine lotion, etc) helps too, for an hour or so anyways... but the BEST thing to help with the creepy crawly feelings is to go on the diet, which means the larva and worms both don't get to eat and so start to go dormant...and you start feeling a TON better. :)
