I've had over 2 good months of energy/clarity, but it only lasts as long as I take albendazole/praziquantel. I took 10 days off and started getting foggy/lethargic. When I started in again, I had massive die-off symptoms. Overall, I feel 90%. cured and better than in years
I relocated to the US 3 weeks ago and since then my liver pain, chest symptoms, and jaw tingling have gone away. But I have constant ringing in my ears.
I feel like I must be almost done with the flukes, but suspect red/white worms or something.
I've been taking IVM along with the ALB/PRZ lately as much for the bed bugs as anything else.
Mattk3 claims LEV will work against flukes. I've been going to follow his protocol for reds, but haven't gotten to it yet... involves lots of supplements as well as Pyrantel/IVM/PRZ/ALB/Itraconazole. Unfortunately, I've been sidetracked by bed bugs.
THe triclabendazole sounds good, but I've not sourced it. When I've looked into it it seems quite expensive.
Are you taking magnesium citrate? Or doing something to cleanse the liver? I think that might help; that's one thing that I've been doing since I got to the US and maybe that's why my liver pain is gone. I'm going to order some coconut butter (pure whole coconut ground up) because I saw someone on youtube said that alone purged flukes out of her liver. You slowly chew a tablespoon under your tongue first thing in the morning. I figure it can't hurt and everyone seems to agree that coconut oil is antiparasitic.
For several months I've been drinking "Jillian Juice" (fermented cabbage juice); I thought it was helping some in Thailand. Now that I'm in the US, I'm not sure if it's doing much. Plus, when I took the break from meds, the juice didn't prevent the return of the parasites. But it's a good dose of probiotices.
For several weeks, I've been taking diatomaceous earth and not sure if it's doing anything either.
I guess I'm going to bite the bullet and try Mattk3's suggestions; I'm don't like the idea of putting all that stuff into me, but I'm not sure what else to do.
Have you checked out his Ascaris123 document? It's worth a read, I think. It's a bit outdated because from what I can tell he's replaced DEC and piperazine with LEV in the protocols.
My relatives are OK. They don't engage me much on it. I'd say maybe just being discreet about your meds around them. It's not really any of their business what "supplements" you take.
Thanks for the tips on sourcing things in the US. When I was in Thailand I could just go to the pharmacy for my ALB/PRZ and the pet store for IVM. Different ball game here in the US.
Also, I'm noting that I rarely find people who heal in one treatment from a longstanding or complicated infection. Most people seem to take a year or more of treatment.
