Has Anyone Else Tried Humaworm?
0

148 posts in this topic

I don't think I had parasites but I think it might have cured my SIBO (Small bowel intestinal overgrowth). I have had a very, very restricted diet. Eliminated nuts, dairy, chocolate, soy, all grains and I was STILL suffering from bouts of diarrhea. It seemed like more and more things were setting me off all the time. Dairy gave me sinus problems and muscle spasms, nuts caused horrible diarrhea, chocolate was giving me stomach aches and intestinal issues.

I saw someone refer to Humaworm here and thought I was being a total nimcompoop but I ordered some and wow! It took about 10 days for it to start to work but the constant diarrhea stopped and I'm not getting sinus problems from the dairy (which sneaked back into my diet).

I'm still taking it. I hope the magic holds once I'm done with it.

Any other stories?

Before discovering I have celiacs I thought bloated belly might be from parasites so I tried the Colonix kit from Dr natura and felt much flatter belly after and had more regular BMs after but was not yet on

F at time so resulots did not last. Also tried Humaworm but did not have as good of results. think I will try Colonix again now that I am gluten-free to help clean system out. Thanks for reminder

I know Carla used it, and it really helped her (and if I remember correctly, she passed a huge tapeworm :blink: ). I read through their site, and what they say makes great sense. And I am impressed by their reasonable price, too.

I am intolerant to salicylates, and of course, since humaworm is all herbs it is very high in salicylates. But I am thinking of trying it anyway, because I have been thinking for years that I have all the symptoms of parasites. Doctors are useless in figuring it out.

It would make me ache to the point of needing to be back on codeine 24/7. But it would only be for a month, and I had taken it for five years before I discovered my intolerances. It might be worth it, I am going to discuss it with my naturopathic doctor next time I see him (in 2 1/2 weeks).

And who knows, maybe by the time I am done with it, I won't be intolerant to so many things any more! That would be amazing.

This is true. :ph34r: It worked great for me.

I no longer have any food intolerances at all. Part of it is because of Humaworm, part is because of Bartonella treatment (coinfection of Lyme Disease).

I waited 90 days and did a second round. I am almost finished with the second round.

Did you visibly pass anything other than the tapeworm? What about this time around?

I don't go digging, LOL. I did see some kind of worm this time, too. I think last time there might have been a round worm too, but the worms digest after they die, so it's hard to tell. I just saw the worm this time twice during the first week, so it's a big improvement over last time. When the tapeworm first started coming out it was clear it was a tapeworm, but as time went on, it was less clear ..... but what I saw this time and last I have never seen otherwise.

Most of the parasites we have are microscopic, so even if you don't see anything, most likely you are still passing something.

I used to have chronic diarrhea. Now I never, ever have it unless I get the flu or something. I never knew this was possible, LOL.

I didn't pass anything, that I could tell. I truly think it was a SIBO. I've had it before and antibiotics cleared it up.

Yes, I had that, too. That was why I started the Humaworm, because after I stopped the abx, it came right back. My doctor had me get on herbs, and I was taking so many different ones that when I saw Humaworm, it just looked so simple and cheap!

I was shocked when I saw the worm(s).

What they say on the site makes sense. Why do people deworm their dogs regularly, but not themselves? And especially if they have pets, it is unlikely that they don't get what the dogs get.

Two of my kids have dogs, and they allow those dogs to lick their baby's and toddlers faces! They don't believe me when I say that is a terrible idea. And one little one will share her food with her dog (as in, letting the dog have a bite, and then eating the rest herself). It just grosses me out.

We used to have a ton of pets when I was a kid (not a dog while I lived at home, though). But even if you don't have pets, as it says, you can breathe in parasite eggs that are floating in the air, they are that tiny!

I have a book that says that almost 100% of people in America have parasites. That doctor tested herself and her whole family, and they ALL had parasites! And those tests don't even pick up most of them. It is scary.

Anyway, I will definitely try it. And if I can prove to my husband that I have parasites (by showing him a worm, if I pass any), maybe he will do it as well. And then I will be able to convince my kids, too (maybe, some of them are even more stubborn than me :o ).

I agree that it is prudent to do that parasite cleanse regularly. If I find that it helps me the first time around, I will definitely do it again. And with this one, I know it works, because of you guys having tried it. It is always good to hear from people I know (sort of) who have tried it, rather than just relying on the supplier for information on effectiveness.

Believe me, when I was using it I was plenty grossed out! I was mortified!

www.humaworm.com

They hand make each batch so if there's an ingredient you are sensitive to, just let them know an they'll leave it out.

Paula, I did have a little bit of a reaction the first couple days on it. When the parasites die they release toxins. Plus the herbs are very cleansing, so you have the toxins from that as well.

The second time I used it, I actually had to stop taking it for a few days, then restart it. When I restarted it, I was fine.

I must ask. Why did you have to stop? To be honest I'm scared. But I am not too afraid to try it!.

Call me confused and moody these days. I do need help.

Humaworm looks just like a herbal digestive preperation from one of my antique medical texts. Except for the Psyllium. Hysop is such a useful herb for stomach complaints.

Remember, while parasites are gross, exposing your kids to them does, prehaps, reduce their chances of developing both asthma and crohns disease. Parasites have been a normal part of human existance since the dawn of time. That does not mean you have to keep a bunch as pets :) but they do have a place in human development.

if anyone cares to explore this interesting topic further, its called Helminthic therapy.

I keep bees and am a firm believer in Apitherapy, but that is kind of "out there" for most people so I try to keep quiet about it :lol:

I had to stop because I felt so horrible. I also have Lyme Disease, so some things can stir up to much and it sends me to bed.

Itchy, my "pet" worm was really causing issues, LOL.

Tell me more about salicylates and there effects on you that cause such extreme aches. I also have extreme aches and pains in muscles, bones, and joints which reduced when first on gluten-free diet but have returned. Could it be salicylates?

I have a salicylate sensitivity. Its caused by a deficiency of a specific enzyme (PST). When this enzyme is deficient it causes a sensitivity to phenols (especially salicylates). Phenols are chemical compounds found in all foods....salicylates are found in a large amount of foods (at different levels). Fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices have the highest content of salicylates.

There are also many food products as well as non-food products which contain synthetic salicylates. Natural skin products containing ingredients from high salicylate foods would also cause problems.

Aspirin contains high amounts of salicylate....if you have problems with aspirin as well as foods that have high amounts of salicylate you may have a sensitivity to salicylates. If you dont react to these things it is not likely to be a problem.

With salicylate sensitivity reactions occur when the body exceeds its tolerance for these chemicals. Its cumulative....some people can tolerate very little before showing symptoms while others can consume more before becoming symptomatic.

Not only do the PST enzymes breakdown phenols but the PST enzymes are also involved in one of the body's key detoxification pathways. Salicylates inhibit these enzymes up to 50%....which means if the enzymes are deficient (for some other reason) and you consume foods high in salicylates this detox pathway becomes impaired to an even greater extent. The result is an accumulation of salicylates and other toxins that the body is unable to breakdown and eliminate efficiently. This will trigger an array of symptoms.

Rachel, that is great information! I will need to learn to explain it that well ;) . I bookmarked those to read when I have the time.

Salicylates make my muscles and skin ache terribly. I find that now if I am 'bad' and eat an orange, for instance (I get tempted less and less because of the awful reaction) I will feel like I am on fire by the next day and will need to take codeine again for a couple of days.

Here is another link that I found most helpful:

I also find that lectins make my joints and back ache, as well as cause gastrointestinal problems and headaches.

Yeah, it sounds great, but I'm scared of side effects. Is it something where I'm going to have to be chained to a toilet for a couple of days? I couldn't find any side effect info on the site. Not that I would mind a couple of days of side effects, I just want to be prepared.

I did not have that problem at all. I just had normal-for-me bowel movements with it.

Only thing for me was the pills cause heartburn. I can't take them right before bed because I seem to be needing to be upright. And I have to drink lots of water, that seems to help.

Be sure to post your results. I want to know I'm not crazy. :) I've been like 2-3 weeks without diarrhea... I swear I haven't had such a long period of normalcy since... well, measure it in years and perhaps decades.

I've bkmrkd this thread and expect to remember to post results.

What I've heard on the gigantic 1800+ page OMG thread from a few ppl is that I should expect 2 or 3 bad days to start.

I don't currently have any D - that went away, along w/ DOZENS of other ailments, minor and major, last summer when I FINALLY went off soy. :)

I'll probably post what the 1st few days are like, and anything significant ( :ph34r: ) during the 30days.

:)

    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
