Parasitic infestations are an epidemic in the United States, with most sources estimating that a massive 85% of Americans have parasites. Because of this, we recommend a parasite cleanse every six months, care in choosing restaurants, and washing after exposure to animals.

Unfortunately, most doctors are not trained in the treatment of parasites. It is only when parasites are visually seen that American doctors will suspect them, which requires an especially terrible case. There are many symptoms of parasite infestation which people experience in daily life, believing that these issues are completely normal. While sickness has become somewhat normal in the modern lifestyle, it does not need to be. The amount of damage that can be caused by parasites is virtually limitless, because many types of them are small enough to travel anywhere in the body through the bloodstream. Parasites obtain sustenance by robbing the body of nutrients. They are the root cause of lupus, with all other issues being secondary to the parasitic infection. Therefore, lupus cannot be cured without a thorough parasite cleanse. Lupus is officially reported to be just another "incurable disease" and an "autoimmune disorder" by the establishment. Most parasites can be avoided by thoroughly cooking foods and by never drinking unfiltered water.

Identifying Common Parasites

  • Round worms: Living in the stomach and intestines, these worms enter through undercooked and contaminated food. Remember that manure used in organic farming may be contaminated with worms. Therefore, this parasite is one reason to avoid raw produce diets. Always wash your hands after having contact with pets; especially if there has been any contact with their feces.
  • Heart worms: It is extremely rare for heart worms to occur in humans. It usually occurred as a single worm in the lungs, instead of the heart, in the few cases that were reported. They cannot be spread from one animal (or human) to another, but must be spread through mosquitoes.
  • Tape worms: These worms enter the body through undercooked beef, fish, or pork. They live in the lower intestinal tract. Use gloves and wash thoroughly after preparing meat to prevent them.
  • Pin worms: Living inside the intestinal tract and lungs, these small white worms come out at night to lay eggs around the anus. The eggs hatch, and then the young worms re-enter through the anus. If the person scratches during his sleep, the eggs get under the fingernails, spreading to wherever the person touches. It is believed that they are small and lightweight enough to become airborne, leading people to inhale them. This is how they are purported to arrive inside the lungs.
  • Hook worms and thread worms: These can be found in contaminated drinking water, or they can enter directly through the feet. They are tiny in size, and can enter through the soles of bare feet; even without open wounds. Always wear shoes when walking outside. These worms are unique because they have a lifespan of several years, and the eggs can incubate for up to 10 years.

Symptoms of Parasites

  • Repeated diarrhea or constipation
  • Chronic, unexplained nausea, often accompanied by vomiting
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Intestinal cramping
  • Unexplained dizziness
  • Foul-smelling flatulence
  • Indigestion
  • Bloating
  • Multiple food allergies
  • Loss of appetite
  • Itching around the anus, especially at night
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty maintaining a healthy weight (over or underweight)
  • Itching on the soles of the feet, often accompanied by a rash
  • Itching or tingling sensations on the scalp
  • Coughing blood (severe cases)
  • Palpitations (hook worms)
  • Anemia
  • Facial swelling around the eyes (round worms)
  • Wheezing and coughing, followed by vomiting, stomach pain and bloating (suggesting round worms or thread worms)

Allopathic Treatments

If a conventional doctor believes that you have parasites, he will prescribe an anti-parasitic pharmaceutical. These pharmaceuticals are always toxic, for it is their toxicity that kills the parasites. Thus, swelling of the lymph nodes, hands, and feet are common with these drugs. Vision problems, lack of coordination, and convulsions can also occur. Diarrhea is typical.

Anti-Parasitic Supplements

  • Black walnut hulls
  • Wormwood
  • Cloves
  • Pumpkin seeds or pumpkin seed oil capsules
  • Garlic
  • Neem *
  • Thyme
  • Marshmallow root
  • Diatomaceous earth

* Do not take neem if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, because it can work as a contraceptive.

We do not recommend choosing any of the anti-parasite formulas that are available in retailers, for they are usually overpriced and formulated at very low concentrations.

Diatomaceous earth is probably the best natural anti-parasitic medication. It is a natural pesticide that does not harm humans or pets. It is believed to kill insects, worms, and parasites by dehydrating them. When used on ants, it usually takes approximately 20 minutes before they are all dead. One tablespoon of diatomaceous earth taken by an adult, once a day for a week, is believed to be extremely effective for killing all parasites. When it is used on children, bear in mind that height is a better indicator of the size of their gastrointestinal tracts than their weights. Thus, a child who is 4 feet tall should take 2 teaspoons, and a child who is 2 feet tall should take 1 teaspoon.

Our research indicates that diatomaceous earth is the best overall parasite treatment for humans, because it can kill blood-borne parasites as well. When using it, be sure to drink plenty of fluids, because it will dehydrate a person considerably. If you take the diatomaceous earth route, then we advise you to only buy it food grade. Industrial diatomaceous earth is used for swimming pool filters, and it has been chemically treated, so this type is not safe to eat. Try to avoid rubbing it onto your hands, since it will have a drying effect upon the skin. Mix the powder into a drink before consuming, in order to avoid inhaling any of the dust.

Diatomaceous earth contains heavy metals as part of its mineral content, but it also contains selenium, which allows otherwise accumulative heavy metals to be safely flushed from the body. Therefore, it is not really a health concern, despite the trace presence of aluminum and lead. We recommend taking selenium supplements for a week after discontinuing this treatment to ensure that the body thoroughly neutralizes the metals. Concerned individuals can follow the parasite cleanse with a metal cleanse.

Wormwood and black walnut hulls are known to kill adult worms, whilst cloves kill eggs. Some people use this trio for treating parasites, instead of diatomaceous earth. It is recommended that you take 500 mg. of wormwood and black walnut hulls, whilst taking 1/2 teaspoon of cloves daily for about 14 days. The other herbs listed can be used to augment these two core protocols.

Herxheimer Reactions

As parasites die, they release toxins through their excrement and from rotting. The most common parasites, the worm type, attempt to escape by burrowing deeper into the intestines, which can cause sharp cramps. Even when dead, the body is still burdened with the task of flushing them out. This whole process can make the person feel sicker than he was before he began the cleanse, but this is only temporary, and it is a sign that the cleanse is working. It is known as a Herxheimer reaction when people become sicker as a result of the toxins that are released by dying parasites. While fatigue and grogginess are to be expected, normal life may be continued, and diarrhea should not occur. Eat a good, wholesome diet throughout the cleanse to ensure that your immune system is at its strongest. After the cleanse, you should feel better, have more energy, and experience sickness less often.

Deworming Pets

A cat or dog is best treated with diatomaceous earth and pumpkin seed oil. Do not feed pets walnut hulls, wormwood, or any other supplement without first researching its effects upon animals. For instance, onion can kill dogs.

Diatomaceous Earth was very helpful to me. However since I still had a small amount of endolomax nana parasite still showing in my stool test, I had to take an antibiotic. I went to an infectious disease doctor that prescribed an antibiotic called Paromomycin. Just took another stool test and it came out negative. I thank God for helping me to rid me of this parasite which I had for a year. I tried several natural remedies and also used flagyl an antibiotic that did not remove them. I thank the creators of this website.

Permaguard (the most awards for best product/mining) has the purest and cheapest (BEST)!!! I buy 1-50 pound bag for around $60.00. (ship included). It lasts me years! I use if for many things but my dogs and I have been on it for years, I take with something sweet, it is the perfect invitation for parasites to dine! and I truly believe that I would be dead now if I did not have! Doctors NEVER NEVER NEVER acknowledge a parasite infection, infact, if you mention, they say "It's all in your head!", and they know EVERYONE HAS!!! (it's just a matter of how much and what kinds, and science has only studied and labeled 1% of parasites that can live in us, and they can change your DNA!!!) you could be dying in their office and they wouldn't SEEEEE the problem. As in my case, I infected my left eye with dog feces while grooming my mini-schnauzer, 2-1/2 days later, eyeball migraines started, which advanced to the brain and over 100 symptoms occurred (in 1-1/2 yrs)! I got over 30 misdiagnoses as I was dying. Threatened "lock up" if I didn't take their (mind altering) drugs!!! Had to sign papers saying I would fill the prescription or I would be "locked up" (but I threw them all away!) Went to a "soon to retire" Infectious Disease doctor and was diagnosed "encephalitis", but my family doctor got on phone and yelled at him and destroyed the paperwork!!! On my death bed, 1-1/2 years of suffering unnecessary 35 killer migraines (35 ER visits begging for my life! < they mocked and ignored me but took my money!!!), my left eye went sideways, 2 vehicle accidents, the worst brain pain imaginable, and on fire, lost 11 pounds in 10 days, body temp declining from/at 95, giving up the battle...I threatened suicide (at home on the phone with the LAST doctor to speak to), and that ID doctor gave me "Albendazole" ("Albenza") and I recovered!!! He says "Well, how does it feel to be right?! Oooh why don't doctors listen to their patients!?" < can you believe that!!!!!!!! Today, I have to take DE because there are no doctors to help me, even the one who gave me the parasite killer and told me "You know, now, you will have to be on meds for the rest of your life to keep them at bay, they hide and resurface." got Alzheimer's and can't remember me, nor fill the script, BUT HE IS STILL IN PRACTICE!!!

So are you saying diatomaceous earth, alone, is a viable and comprehensive approach to eliminating parasites? I've heard of good results with activated charcoal alone too. Then there are the recommendations that include 6-12 other substances in various combinations often with activated charcoal and/or bentonite clay. The subject really gets my head spinning and I find it hard to make a decision (probably due to parasite infection), so I know I need to try something oral because this darn zapper apparently isn't doing the trick ;-}

Bentonite clay often contains lead, and always contains copious amounts of other metals, so it should never be taken internally. Activated charcoal removes poisons from the body, but not parasites.

Physicians are not taught anything about parasites in the AMA Mafia (American Medical Association) who prohibits teaching them nutrition and natural cures to aid in healing the sick, neglecting patients and ignoring mother nature as well as our own Biology symbiotic with Mother Nature. They are Big Pharma subjects.
They do not know and often ignore your claims, thereby attributing your symptoms to other diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome IBS, ulcers, anxiety, etc. Parasites and the ignorant doctors killed my mother.
They gave her so many different medications, she was emaciated from not being able to eat. I would make her her favorite dishes, and it was torture for her to it.
No one ever treated her for the parasites. Now I have the answer after extensive research performed but my poor mother is dead after suffering for years!

Immunosuppressants "work" by suppressing the immune system. The immune system is what generates all of the horrible symptoms that tell you when your body is falling apart. So, when you take immunosuppressants, all of those symptoms are alleviated, but the actual cause of the symptoms is continuing unabated, and most certainly getting worse.

Most likely, you will feel great until your organs start failing and everything will seem to collapse at the same time. The doctors will tell you that 'the lupus' came out of remission, but it was never really gone.

It's like taking an anesthetic while your leg is being sawed off, but continuing to allow it to be cut off and telling yourself that everything is fine. That's modern medicine for you.

DE will help the scabies, we had also sprayed with watered down apple cider vinegar, but it makes them mad and you get itchy and it may even sting. Beware your scabies could be morgellons (also parasitic.) We also began drinking coconut water (natural antibacterial) mixed with a green vegtable juice (preferably wheatgrass juice or juice with wheatgrass.)This is a wonderful blood cleanser, plus it helps people slender down to fit & trim.

Find a good combination of treatments and stick to it. Remember to stay hydrated, eat healthy live foods, avoid GMO & processed foods. Eat high alkaline foods like melons, asparagus & lentils, etc. A balanced ph keeps these parasites at bay too.

Unfortunately we are at a turnabout in this civilization and the people need to take the control of their health and lives back from the hierarchy ill intentions of some on this planet. Parasites are a huge hidden secret and we're dealing with them on more levels than most could possibly imagine. If we can heal ourselves, we can heal the whole planet.

It sounds likely that you didn't take the D.E. for long enough, so the weakened parasites recovered. Taking neem alongside the Diatomaceous Earth will help to increase the likelihood that you successfully kill all of them.

The article above provides a list of items which do kill parasites. Activated charcoal is used for poison emergencies, but it is not a routine detoxifying agent, and it does not kill parasites. If it is used routinely, it will just strip the body of its nutrients. We have an article about the uses for activated charcoal.

# Whipworm diagnosis after 5 wks hospitalizationBrandy Mack 2013-03-31 14:03
Hi, my 17 yr old daughter just spent the majority of the last 5 wks in the hospital with non stop vomiting, nausea,diarrhea and severe cramping in her abdomen with increased sensitivity to descending colon. They conducted every test under the sun, MRI of abdomen and brain, CT scans, Upper GI, sonograms, you name it. From the beginning I asked if they could please check for parasites and the doctor flat out refused to check for them. Her exact words were, "Unless she's recently been out of the country or consumed "free range" meat there is no possible way she could have contracted a parasite. The food handling processes we have here in the US are far to safe for that to happen. People who consume free range meat are more susceptible to parasites that those who eat processed, industrialized meat." I couldn't believe that I was hearing.

After the second visit to that hospital and refusing to let the physician i spoke about above treat my child again, the other doctor said that my daughter was making all of this up in the head for attention. They went so far as to have her examined by a psychiatrist and was giving her anti-depressants, both without my consent.

I work for a Chiropractor with a post dr degree in endocrinology. She gave me a stool test to collect and we sent it off to the lab. Sure enough....she has a e-coli infection as well as whip worms. I am livid at this point because I specifically asked for that to be checked. Do I have any recourse, given the fact that my daughter had to suffer to so long bcuz the drs refused to do their job?

We are really not surprised. Not anymore. Part of the problem is that the customers of the doctors, allow the doctors to order them around. Hopefully you have learned a valuable lesson from this experience that could save you or a loved one's life in the future. In the future, perhaps you will use the magic words, "Hell no!". Consider yourself very lucky. There are a lot of dead kids, because their parents were unwilling to disobey. Hold on to that anger. You may need it for future battles like this.

OK, it first started with a crawling feeling in my nose and then in my eyes. After that, it moved to my head. I was not sure what was causing it. I started researching symptoms and discovered that my symptoms could only be caused by parasites. I have taken two different antiparasite medications they offer over the counter here in mexico city, but with every treatment, my brain feels like it swells and I have to take a large dose of Motrin to deal with it. I was told by my twin that they hate menthol so I bought a vics vapor inhalor and use it . I have been taking 6/500mg garlic tablets every day for more than a week hoping that it will help. I also take spirulina and vitamin c. At night I have symptoms like RLS and also all of my nerve endings start to fire and it feels like needles all over my body or like things biting me. Most of the time it is the muscle issue that keeps me from sleeping. It is quite painful and is messing with my life. I am starting to have other symptoms as well. This terrifies me and I am so scared to lose my sight or other main functions of my body. Please help me. I have been in Mexico for almost 6 months now with my 9 year old and I dont want him to get them. I have treated him with loxcell twice now as preventative measures. I am from OKlahoma.

Spirulina is an algae, so we strongly recommend against it. The biggest problem with these algae is that they are typically contaminated with extreme toxins and heavy metals. The National Institutes of Health warns that contaminated algae products cause liver damage. With most algae supplementation, ocean pollutants will accumulate inside the liver, doing cascading organ damage over time.

Have you tried the supplements that are recommended for parasites in the article above? In your situation, with such a large case of parasites, we would recommend combining all of the options provided in the article, to ensure maximum effectiveness.

OK, I found clove oil, and neem tablets. I have been taking garlic tablets for about a month now. I was under the impression that spirulina tablets were extremely good for you. All of the research that I had done in the US made my family believers about the algae and we have been taking it for over a year now. How is one supposed to know if the spirulina they bought from a pharmacy or natural store is contaminated? I wasnt aware that they could sell contaminated products. I will stop taking it and throw it out of my house if it really causes organ damage. Also, Since I read the different products on your site, I could only find the neem and the clove oil. I have been taking it since yesterday, along with the garlic, and one vitamin c tablet. If I need to do anything else, please let me know. I am sick of the stuff at night happening, and my brain swelling and hurting everytime I take a medication for the parasites. All of this scares me because I am a clean person. When we came here to Mexico with my fiance to get married, his aunt has three cats in the house and she says that she keeps them wormed, but I dont know if thats true. We drink only bottled water, and have not eaten any contaminated pork that im aware of. I just want my son and I to be safe and healthy.

There is no way to know whether spirulina is contaminated, except by getting every pill analyzed. The reality is that most spirulina is contaminated, because it is its job to absorb the poisons and metals from the waters. The same is true of seaweed. The fact that some unscrupulous or uninformed websites promote and sell it does not demonstrate safety. Health Canada warned that people should not use blue-green algae products because of the massive risks involved, and this would include spirulina. Similar warnings have been given by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

We believe diatomaceous earth to be the most effective anti-parasitic substance available. So, you may wish to try and find it, and use it in addition to the other supplements that you purchased.

I was just diagnosed with a microscopic parasite called Blastocystis hominis.

Conventional tx of this parasite is controversial world wide. There's not one antibiotic approved to treat this. My GI Dr prescribed Alinia. Based on my online research, it doesn't appear it will be effective. I'd like to attempt a natural approach.

As I approached him, he said, "eat at poop". When I asked him if he did, in fact, eat that poop, he said, "yes." I noticed a couple of specks of dirt in and around his mouth. His pediatrician assured me today that I should not be concerned and there is no test that they can do to check for parasites. I know better, and I'm very concerned for my sweet boy. Isn't raccoon roundworm fatal for children? Please, please help. Would DE rid him of parasite eggs before they hatch?
My sincere thanks for your help.

The methods from this article might work against these parasites, but I have to emphasize the word 'might'. We are not aware of any testing for this type of non-human parasite.

Let me break it down for you. This is what alternative (natural) medicine is worst at. Our type of medicine is best at rebuilding a body and saving life, by giving a body the tools that it needs to do what it is supposed to do. What your child needs is whatever is the most effective in killing. The establishment does killing best, and they have the potent poisons at their disposal. We recommend that you find a doctor who will listen to you, and do whatever must be done to make sure that those little monsters do not get a foothold. We can help you with the aftermath, and we certainly will. Call anytime.

None of our suggestions listed in this article would be harmful, so you should proceed with them too -- all of them.

I am Laura and I was diagnose with lupus hematouse (skin lupus)for a year and the itching and the joints pain are bad but I think the medicine is the worse, and I want to stop it and take D E and here is my question. You said on one comment to take D E one tablespoon for 7 days. Then in another comment a lady said she did it and felt great but the lupus came back and you said she didn't take it long enough so how long is good enough? I will take it for the first 7 days, then when should I take it again? Or how often should I take it Thank you

If you have lupus, then it should be assumed that you have an above-normal level of parasites, so it would be wise to continue the diatomaceous earth for longer than most people. In your position, I would continue the regimen for twice the normal period, thus using the D.E. for 14 days. If you decide to do that, make sure that you stay well hydrated during that period, and take selenium each day.

Hi, I've been battling pinworms for 3 years now. I've been to doctors and taken the medicine it doesn't work. I also follow strict hygiene practices. This parasite has taken over my whole life, I feel hopeless and fear I will have to live with it forever. After reading your report, I am going to give food grade DE a try. Would you all please pray for me?

# Papaya Seed Powder?Jimmie Miller 2014-03-05 15:31
I read somewhere else that papaya seed powder works also and kind of paralyzes worms so that they can be expelled more easily. Do you know if this is true? I did take some along with a herbal parasite blend a few months ago for a 2 round treatment and the digestive issues I was having did seem to be relieved...

# Stomach Cramps after taking DEJonathan McDonnell 2014-10-23 11:15
Dear Sarah and Thomas,
my wife has been diagnosed with parasitic worms and we have started her on DE. She has a lot of stomach cramps (so I guess that means that things are happening..) Any idea how long this should last?

Secondly she does not produce stomach acid for digestion - is there any reason that she should not take her stomach acid capsules (HCL) which she normally has to take before each meal.

Thanks for any input that you have.

The gas and cramps should only last for the first couple of days, unless it is a really bad case of infestation, or there is some other aggravating issue. We do not have enough information to help with diagnosing the stomach acid problem, but we can tell you that apple cider vinegar would be a safer and more natural option than the pharmaceutical.

Reference these reports:

I have to thank you for this advice - my wife saw some 1cm long hair size objects in the toilet bowl this morning and feels a LOT better - we will keep the DE treatment going for the full week and then see how that goes.

Also she has started with the Apply Cider Vinegar and things have started to move - which has not happened as well in a long time.

Wonderful information!

All the best,

DE is something we keep in our pantry. We buy our food grade DE at a local animal feed store. We use it for flea control weekly dusting our cats and put it in wet food daily for 60 days, as the eggs can be there unhatched for that long. We use it for ourselves just as you said 7-10 days with tons of water.
Colloidal silver worked when I uped my dosage each day up until 8oz. I won't go into details as it's gross, but let's just say, the nest was effected. Juse posting for purposes of my experience. The question is: Dr. Jennifer Daniels talks about Turpentine for candida. I enjoy the info here, and print it for family as I enjoy Dr. Daniels' rafio talks. Wondering if you've came across the Turpentine.

Hi. I have read the article and some comments and I am now considering using DE. Do you know if this would react with my antidepressant medication? If not would my Dr be the person to ask? Thanks

I went to Amazon and there are several brands of food grade D.E. Is there a brand you trust?
Also, I read on the Amazon Reviews that a lot of people take D.E. On a daily basis to keep their colon "clean and moving", what do you think of this practice as you only recommend it for a short period? Wouldn't parasites grow tolerance if taken every day?
Lastly,what do you think of using D.E. And Para-gone together. I believe Para-gone is used for 30 days. Should I start paragone and D.E. The same day then continue with paragone after the 7 days of D.E. Are over, should I do D.E first then start paragone or vice versa. I have not ordered either because I will wait for your reply. Thank you in advance for answering and for taking time to post these articles.

Hi, I have IgA deficiency, was bitten by a tick in June 2103 and treated in the first two weeks of the bite and the first positive Lyme test. I was treated for 81 days with the doxycycline. I've been ill since. I was also just treated for parasites with Metronidazole twice a day for two weeks. Just finished yesterday. I've been taking sodium phosphate daily as well. Still have a few tablets left to take. Problem is I still feel weak and I'm bloating again. I will need to be tested again.

Question: What is the best thing to do now? The sodium phosphate is a laxative. I'm hesitant to believe the parasites have eradicated.

# KratomCrystal Morris 2015-04-15 20:17
Hi, first off, this is my 3rd day of taking the diatomaceous earth and I am having weird itching around my vagina is this normal?

Also, to touch base with Kratom. I am 9yrs clean and sober this June. I am on disability for hep-c and degenerative arthritis and neuropathy. They had me on vicoprofen and tramadol and flexril plus blood pressure and high cholesterol and nexium and rantidine for my stomach. Out of the blue they stopped the vicoprofen and tramadol, and I have been on them for 6yrs. So I did some research and found a website that informed me about Kratom. I was amazed. First off, I feel like someone lifted a heavy weight off my brain, it is not foggy anymore, am I still in pain? Yes, but not as much since I have been taking the Kratom. It helped with withdrawl from my pain meds. My adult daughter is dealing with an addiction to heroin and I got her some Kratom to start taking. She has been clean off of heroin for 9 days, praying that she never gets back on that demon drug. Anyway, just want to say a big "thank you" for all you put on your website. I have told so many people about your website, but to be honest, it is hard for people to think anything that does not come from a doctor can help. I did try to stop taking my blood pressure meds but in a few days my head felt like someone had put a rubber band around it. So I am going to deal with things one at a time. Got the Kratom, now working on the parasites. Next I will tackle the other meds they have me on. Great Job, thank you, and God Bless

# Supplementing with seleniumDavid Jenkins 2015-04-24 18:28
Hello Thomas and Sarah,

I have a few questions about the diatomaceous earth, if you have the time.

With your advice to supplement with selenium the week after diatomaceous earth, do you see a natural source, such as Brazil nuts, being sufficient, or is there an advantage to the concentration of a commercial supplement?

Also, do you recommend this week long use of diatomaceous earth be taken on a regular cycle, like every year, two years, etc?

Thanks for the article.

But now that I think of it, my veterinary just found out that my dog has heart worm.....does the diatomaceous earth work to kill the heart worm in dogs?

Thank you so much!!!

You should probably hold off on giving it to the one-year-old. I cannot imagine that the need for a parasite cleanse would be great enough to justify it.

It might work for the dog in larger doses, which would probably be needed to kill well-established parasites in the blood. Just be aware that the Herxheimer reaction might kill the dog too. It is when a body is poisoned by the rotting tissues of dying parasites. The dog is in real trouble, and there is no gentle way to wipe out all parasites.

Hey there,
Thanks so much for all of this great information. I have a few questions for you. I would like my whole family to try this... but my youngest daughter is allergic to nickle, cobalt, paladium, and about three other metals. They cause hives, and welps when they come in contact with the skin. There are some foods she can not eat that contain a high nickle or metal content, like cashews, most nuts, coffee, chocolate, etc. She gets hives on her tongue and cheeks. Seeing as DM contains some metal, if I put it in pill form, because it doesn't come in direct content of her skin, would you happen to know if it would be safe for her? If not, is there another alternative you could suggest? She often complains of tummy pain, fights constipation, loves red meat, and had a bout of dermographia urticaria recently, and tells me sometimes she feels like something is crawling under her skin. We have been to three docs, and no one thinks its remotely possible for her to have a parasite, of course. I think otherwise. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

After years of dealing with parasites being laughed at my doctors are told that it was a hygiene problem which is not true, emergency mockery. Imagine how thrilled I was to find this thread. Sad to see that the last post is 2014 because this particular posting and all of comments has been the most informative. How do we get this information out there so that it's common knowledge? It kills me to imagine kids going through this. I believe that I've got parasites in my lungs by now amongst my other major organs and day one I am having a lot of stomach cramps, pretty severe cramps and flatulence. I understand now that that means it's working. I ordered some been to flow and some rose water for some gentle cleansing after years of picking. I'm sad that I think I'll have a scar on my face but I'm grateful because I feel like reading what I've read here it's going to save my life. I am scared of being poisoned by the dead cells that are left behind which was exactly what I started to read about in the first place when I found this site. Because I've been a carriers for so long completely untreated I'm asking anybody else who reads this to please pray for me. The bottom half of my legs are swollen bruised and I haven't been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and had neuropathy like symptoms of hot hands and hot feet I am praying that the real problem is the parasitic invasion and that treating with diatomaceous earth will find the fibromyalgia and neuropathy to be a bi-symptom. And so thankful to begin treatment and a little scared and I wish I had someone to talk to. For the next person who stumbles on to this site, I'll pray for you in advance. Best wishes to you all.

# Worms in sinusesSammy Kane 2018-11-16 12:04
Thank you to all contributors on this website.

I have worms in my sinuses and most remedies seem to involve the digestice tract.

I have been doing nette pot saline flushes and taking sudafed to dry out my sinuses so it becomes an uninhabitable area. Using qtips of hydrogen peroxide to clean out my nostrils. Have stopped finding small worms, now only finding a few white dots per day - perhaps eggs or very young larvae so thats progress, but something is still makin babies upthere. I am hoping it will eventually die off if I keep with the saline fkushes - and I may increase the strength ofthe saline (you can use up to 2 packets) to see if that’ll do if.

Just wanted to share that since it is helping me.

# My parasite storyMiriam Noland 2019-02-04 17:39
A few years ago I suddenly developed explosive and uncontrollable diarrhea. Also, whenever I ate anything my heart would pound extremely rapidly and forcefully. Having previously read a lot about parasites on sites like this, the first thing I asked the doctor for was a stool test for parasites. It came back negative. He recommended a probiotic and said it sounded like C-diff. After a few more weeks with no improvement, I took a piece of cheese with me to the doctors office and ate it in front of him. When he witnessed the effect it had on my heart, he blurted out...."Your heart can't take this!" I wanted to say "No kidding, what are you going to do about it?" As a school bus driver, I had to go on sick leave because I could not be away from a toilet. I would get a little better, and then get worse again. I lost 30lbs in about 6 months. I never lost my appetite and I ate a lot, but I was actually starving because food was going right through me, whatever the parasites didn't want. I could eat a piece of broccoli and see it in the toliet 30 minutes later. Finally the doctor decided it was my thyroid and sent me to an endocrinologist. She almost immediately said the only hope for me is to let them "kill my thyroid"! Those weren't the exact words, but that was the gist of it. I was really alarmed at that. As soon as I got home from her office, I was standing in my kitchen thinking about what to do, and I heard very clearly a divine voice in my head that said..."YOU HAVE PARASITES!" I immediately got in my car and drove to the health food store and bought a parasite cleanse. When I got back home and took the first dose, part of which was a wormwood tincture you put in water and drink, within 30 seconds I felt a profound calming throughout my whole body. For 3 or 4 days I passed weird bug looking parasites by the hundreds. I never had the forceful heart pounding again and never had the diarrhea again. I was back to work within a week and within a few months I had gained all the weight back. I kept some of those parasites in a jar of alcohol and showed my doctor. He had nothing to say. Not one word. This was the second time I believe I would have died if I had followed doctor's orders. The first time was when I was prescribed Vioxx and became so lethargic after only a few days, I took myself off of it. A number of years later I learned how many people it was said to have killed with heart failure! And I was only in my early 40's at the time! The second time was this experience with the parasites. If I had let them kill my thyroid I assume I would have starved to death because that would not have fixed the problem. I have become so disgusted and mistrustful of the medical establishment and have doctored myself for so long now and have come to believe that when you do that and you faithfully listen for that divine guidance, you get it. Thank you so much, Sarah and Thomas for what you do. I love, love, love all the information on your website and it's because of you and a few others I have found online that I am actually able to take care of myself and not be fearful. Also, I have your book and love that too. It's one of the most valuable books in my library!
