Many here have done the parasite cleanse by Humaworm, including myself. My naturopath read through the information I showed him, and told me it was better than what he had been using with his patients, and he was switching.

It is MUCH cheaper than any other parasite cleanse I have seen, and very effective. And yes, it is perfectly safe to do for somebody with celiac disease.

You really need to do a cleanse if you have parasites, or you won't get better.

Priobiotics are good for all of us. Just make sure they are gluten-free. It isnt a bad idea to do a parasite cleanse. Your naturapath doesnt offer this? That would be odd. A lot of peeps on here like Humaworm, but they arent shipping right now. You could try Renew Life Paragon. It is gentle.

Thanks ladies(?)

I was not sure if the whole parasite thing is a big scam my hubby thinks I need to do it to feel better too

Yeh my naturalpath does it but it is like pulling teeth to get her to do it for me??? my hubby thinks she worries that if I feel better between the gluten-free diet and the cleans that I will not see her as often and hence less $$ in her pocket cause for the last yr I have been seeing her weekly much $$$$ in her pocket mine on the other hand not so full any more...he-he-he

So you would recomend the parasite cleans and it is ok for my intestines even if I am C I am affraid it will back up more!!! sorry for too much info..:)

It will back up LESS!

Once a week....STOP!!!!....that is a co-dependent relationship....You shouldnt need to see a practitioner more than once a month at most. She is out for $$$ if she is the one having you come back weekly. Now if YOU are the one asking to come back weekly....then you cannot blame her. This is just my opinion. Of course do what feels best for you. :)

The cleanse will help your C. No worries.

Best of luck with it and keep us posted!

I totally agree with you it usually was me as I had been feeling so terrible and scared she gave me a lot of support and an ear to listen my GP has taken an indefinite leave....so she was out but yeh for me it has been 3 weeks and I have not made an apt except that I am thinking of seeing her to take me throught the cleanse I always have these weird reactions to things escpecially foods (this all just started in the last year) like asthma breathing and anxiety but the more I have been reading and learning this is also symptoms of both Gluten issues and parasites!!!! thank you for your honest opinion I would not have asked if i wanted fluff :) it is great to hear...

I also have also mentioned under pre diagnosing, I have just started taking probiotics and essentual enzymes. I believe it is working??? but I also get soooo hungry. I take a couple bites and get nausea.

Did parasites show up on a test? Is that why you get so hungry?

:o

WOW! that would creep me out seeing them. I would be worried too. BUT I would want to get them out of me! The nutritionist said this would not hurt a bit to do the cleanse even if my test was negative.

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
