I was very eager to try a liver cleanse when I stumbled upon this site until the parasite thing...which is why I am still just "reading!"
I really believe the emotional trauma of worms wiggling out of me is more than I can bear. The movie "Tremors" comes to mind.
Background: 39 year old female. Smoke but try to quit every day. Diet is fair, eat too much fast food, etc.
Symptoms: Gained 30 pounds in last two years. Chronic back pain, between shoulders mostly, slightly depressed, feelings of hopelessness (not my norm at all), dry, patchy skin, some kind of reddish brown spots on my cheeks new this Summer, hair is dry, frizzy. Cellulite new this year as well. Constantly tired, lethargic. Feel like I never get enough sleep even with a good, solid 10 hours which is uncommon because I am also having LOTS of trouble sleeping at night, wake up at 3 am and cant get back to sleep.
I have been blaming all this on getting old, being in a rut, stagnant relationship w/boyfriend, etc.
I am sure there is more if I think about it but these are the big ones. My daughter is suffering because i just am not the fun mom I used to be.
I dont want to take anti-depressants which is what my friends say I need. I don't think that they will help me...really.
Sorry this is so long but I must have "Stumbled" here for a reason I am hoping.
Do you think I can get help from cleansing? Can I skip the parasite part? Is there hope to ever feel like myself again??
