Humaworm? Other Parasite Cleanse?
0

7 posts in this topic

Dear all,

 

I want to do a parasite cleanse - for a few fairly sensible reasons.

 

However, I am super sensitive and struggling to find one which does not have grain alcohol (which I cannot tolerate).

 

Humaworm has come up as one that seems to be very well rated and does not contain alcohol.  However when I asked them a bit earlier today if it is gluten free the response clearly indicated that the product is not actually tested and they don't ask the vendors of the raw materials whether these are gluten free either.

 

I just wondered - does anyone "super sensitive" have experience of using Humaworm without issues?

 

Alternatively, has anyone used a good parasite cleanse product which has not given them problems gluten wise?  I also bought Paragone before realising that again, there is grain-based alcohol in the "part 2" of the product so that is out.

 

Thanks so much for any help with this.

 

Best wishes,

 

Carolyn

I am having a hard time understanding what a possible sensible reason for doing a parasite cleanse could be.

I think that unregulated materials involved in such a cleanse could pose a problem for a super sensitive celiac.

Does a doctor think you have a parasite? There are prescription meds (some only available through the CDC) that target specific parasites. Of course there are OTC drugs for pin worms. Our preschool once got infected. What makes you think it is parasites? Where have you traveled?

I would not advise a cleanse without a doctor's supervision.

I have had Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia Lamblia in the past (picked up in Malaysia). Both were treated with antibiotics - apparently successfully - but then "triggered off" celiac disease.

 

I have never really been well since infection with these parasites and I am interested in the increasing school of thought that auto-immune disease may in fact have parasites as their root cause. I have seen a number of anecdotal reports of UC resolving after parasite cleanses for example.  A gluten free diet has absolutely not solved all my issues by any stretch of the imagination.

 

We worm dogs on a regular basis and a lot of people online appear to do regular parasite cleanses with spectacular effects - not just in terms of what they expel but in terms of how they feel afterwards.  Hence my interest..

That's because they eat worm infested poops! I hope that isn't your issue! :). But, actually, dogs aren't de- wormed on a regular basis unless they have worms in their poop. It is unnecessary and harmful to do it to dogs for no reason.

If a dog is on regular monthly heartworm prevention(ivermectin) they are wormed for heartworms (Not a GI parasite) and roundworms/hookworms/whipworms. Pyrantel pamoate is the GI deworming agent that is commonly used. Puppies are born with roundworms as they get it from mom from milk due to hormonal surge to cause larvae to grow.You can purchase HW prevention without the pyrantel pamoate, such as Heartgard versus Heartgard Plus which has the GI deworming agent, too. Most GI parasites are transmitted via FECAL-ORAL route. So if you aren't exposed to food that has parasites in it... you probably don't need a monthly dewormer. That's my 2 cents on that topic.

Thanks for the clarification.  I was only thinking GI worms in my answer.  I hope the OP doesn't have heart worms!   :o

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
