I have read a lot of claims about cleansing toxins and parasites resulting in cures.
Firstly, most of the cleansing I have read is nothing of the sort. If you want to remove heavy metals or organic compounds like pesticides from someone's body it takes more than an enema or a fancy diet. Way more.
Secondly, parasites. Roundworm, whipworm, Tapeworm and hookworm are so rare in the US and Europe as to be effectively eradicated. The only practical way to contract any of these is to go to the third world and eat something contaminated to or to walk barefoot in areas where people defecate. I don't buy it. Way to many weirdo's getting colonics, as if our intestines were not supposed to be full of excrement.
From what I have read I think most of the accounts of eliminating parasites are irrational people with OCD who have picked something to obsess about.
Cure. Were they sick to begin with? Are they just in remission, as in relapsing/remitting Multiple Sclerosis. Or Crohn's, which can also go into remission for years without apparent reason. Was the remission due to their new regime, was it chance, was it the change of season, falling in love, what?
Placebo effect. Enormously powerful, but is it a cure, really? The placebo effect is amazing, but...
One sees a lot of unprincipled quacks offering false hope to the desperate here. I don't buy it unless there is a double-blind study with a control, as in the studies I cite. Anything else could be anything from outright fraud to chance, luck, whatever.
By the way, I thought it was disingenuous to claim you were not saying something but instead remarking that Hulda Clark was. Come on. You made the post, HC did not.
