Wow Ursa!!! :o

I started a new herb for my Lyme .... it's also causing more parasites to come out .... even after two rounds of Humaworm!

I also felt very bad the second time around on the Humaworm. Sorry it's making you feel so rotten. :(

Paula, it's probably good to remove one stressor at a time .... first the mold, then the parasites. :)

How do you pass liver flukes out your intestines if they live in your liver? Those two things aren't connected except by the blood stream.

Well .. . .my 30days ended a few days ago.

Expected to see something interesting at some point, but only had a couple weird BMs, which didn't seem related, but maybe they were. Hard to explain .. ...like they halfway fell apart after expulsion.

Anyway - hope it did some good even w/out visual proof.

I completed the full 30 days too Tom. Nothing different or unusual that I noticed. But then who knows whats hidden. ;)

I must say I am happy to be done with it.

Now I plan to go on a herb free diet and see if my body has healed enough for me to digest the nutrients it needs.

Carla, Can you elaborate a little concerning the benefits you felt after the first liver cleanse. Obviously it was worth your wild if you did it again. Everyone mentions feeling awful. Can you function at your job during this 30 days? Take care of day to day living. Running errands, socializing? Thinking clearly?

Thanks for your input!

Tom, I know this is gross, but you don't see much unless you actually poke and pull apart your excrement. Because most of the time the parasites are hidden inside. Some sort of poke out, but most don't.

I broke a wire hanger to use, and shine a flashlight as well as wearing my reading glasses to look.

So, unless you actually pass nothing but parasites (which isn't likely to happen) that just float in there all by their lonely selves, you wouldn't have seen much.

I am now on day twelve. I see new things every day (today I believe several flukes), but most days it is just a million little skinny white worms and eggs (I obviously only see the large ones, there are microscopic ones nobody would see without a microscope).

I understand what Carla is saying. I obviously have so many parasites that I doubt that one cleanse will get them all out. I will do another one in three months, and then another one three months after that.

Interestingly, my oldest daughter went to a Kinesiologist last week, because she is just not feeling right. She has low body temperature, low blood pressure and low energy (not good with five kids). In short, she feels exactly like I did at her age.

I have told her months ago that she has adrenal fatigue, and also told her a few weeks ago that she likely has parasites as well, and sent her a link to the humaworm site.

Surprise (not really to me), she was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and parasites! She is on a lot of supplements now, which seem to help. She can't do humaworm right now because she is still breastfeeding. But she has ordered the cleanse for her husband and the four older kids. She was told that those supplements will make her environment inhospitable to parasites and they might just leave. We will see. She can always do the cleanse when little Hanna finally decides to give up breast milk (she is 19 months old).

I didn't get very far in convincing my other kids that they likely have parasites, too. But now I have my oldest daughter telling her siblings that they need to do the cleanse!

Two of whom let their dogs lick their baby's faces. Yuck, I've told them many times that is a terrible idea and just asking for their children to have parasites. But of course, they just laugh at me.

I just finished my 30 days and didn't see anything. But I didn't go poking around, so maybe there was something there. I'm a bit disappointed because I was hoping that maybe my skin would clear up a little (I have psoriasis) and that I would lose weight. I've gained weight and my skin isn't any better. I either didn't have parasites or the little critters weren't affecting my skin. I might just have to do a fast to jumpstart some weight loss.

It's not a liver cleanse, but a parasite cleanse. :)

I have Lyme Disease and cannot regularly do the things you mention anyway. I have good days that are near normal, but still too many bad days to hold a job. The Humaworm, does make me worse, but it could have been stirring up the Lyme.

After the Humaworm .... and I didn't poke around, I had a large tapeworm that I couldn't miss :D .... but I'm sure, like Ursa says, if I had looked closer, I'd have seen more .... anyway, afterward, my appetite returned more to normal and I gained some much needed weight.

I also had a lot of other improvement, but I don't know how much was the Humaworm and how much were the other meds I was on for the Lyme.

I am now on day 22, and I am still getting as many small white worms every day as I have been from the beginning. Plus yesterday I got several large pieces that looked like they came from something pretty big (maybe a tapeworm?).

I am feeling sick and dreadfully tired these days. I hope it improves after I am done with the cleanse. Mind you, with that many parasites still coming out, I wonder if one cleanse is enough!

I am definitely going to do another one when my husband does at the beginning of September (after he gets back from a missions trip to the deep jungles of Papua New Guinea). Fortunately that will be after our youngest daughter will go back to her sister's place to live and go to school, and our summer visitor (a nephew from Germany who was here two years ago) has gone home. So, I can then just take it easy.

Because it will cause me to be ill again for a month!

On day three with Humaworm and I feel a lot better, finally. I was nauseous on and off for the first two days. Haven't seen anything yet and I'm kinda hoping not to. I would like to know that it is working but, I don't like to think of those "things" living in my body. I have to say I'm somewhat disappointed not to see anything. (yes, I'm flip-flopping on the idea)

I have been able to work the whole time but, had to put effort into being pleasant!

I ordered my second round HW. Ordered on 5/10. Shipped on 5/13 and arrived 5/15. I was amazed at how fast they did my custom order.

This time I got extra strength without cascara sagrada and psyllium. We'll see how it goes second time round :rolleyes: Did the last one in January with good results.

I think I'll start next week.

I have heard of this before and was afraid to try it. After reading on Candida I think I have those symptoms and humaworm can help cleanse that out. How do I order this product? What do I ask for since I am allerigc to wheat? Will it make me sick? I need to do something, I feel horrible today.

Just the regular adult parasite cleanse for $29.95 (I think that was the price). It is definitely gluten-free, and only has herbs in it.

Well, after today I have two days left. I am feeling very tired and it is really starting to hurt my stomach as well as the rest of my body. But I WILL finish it.

For my next round in September I will ask them to leave out the ginger, peppermint and cayenne, because I think those are the main culprits in making me feel terrible. Especially the peppermint (which is extremely high in salicylates) gives me problems. I will have minty burps before I get acid reflux. That's another thing, I can't lie flat right now, and even lying with my head elevated I wake up because of reflux that is almost vomiting.

I am still seeing parasites when having bowel movements. Not the little white worms any more, but still small flesh coloured ones. Plus what I can't really define, always the excrement is surrounded/has all the way through 'tissue' of some sort that is attached and moving (floating) with any movement. It is see-through and undefinable (at least by me), but it is not what you would expect. I have no idea what it is.

I do hope that once I am done I am going to feel better than I did before starting the cleanse.

Do any of you have intersticial cystitis? Do any of the ingredients cause your bladder to flare up? I am thinking Cayenne would be a no no.

I am just getting around to thinking about trying this, and i just read this on the Humaworm website. Bummer.

On July 31st, 2008 - HUMAWORM, INC. suffered a complete loss due to fire. We will try to have all orders through today - August 2, 2008 filled and sent out by August 29th, 2008.

This site is still active and we can still take orders, but we cannot answer emails until sometime in the next two weeks. THANK YOU for your understanding.

A family of raccoons has built a nest in a neighbor's tree, and their poo has lots of nasty parasites in it. I was thinking of doing this as a preventative measure, along with a commando effort to get rid of the nasty raccoons. They think our chickens look like a tasty snack. :lol:

Wouldnt hurt to do "Renew Life" Paragone. You can do Humaworm another time. Supposedly we need to do them a few times a year. Humaworm yielded nothing in the toilet for me.....I was hopeful......

How did you get the brand name to print? I've recommended 2 products Brenda Watson puts out and the brand name is always kicked out. Her company is dedicated to intestinal health/detoxification and her fiber bars are the best I've found because they're 14 grams of gluten-free fiber.

This company took my money and ran. No replies to email queries. This was over 6 months ago. Many others have had similar experiences at the curezone forum.

    • Positive biopsy and blood work?  It sure sounds like your doctor made the right diagnosis.   Let me tell you my story.  Diagnosed after going for a routine colonoscopy because I am over 50.  GI saw my chart and noted that I was anemic.  I have a genetic anemia and I was iron deficient as well.  I lived like that my entire life.  But my wise GI ordered a celiac blood panel and it was considered mildly positive.  So, he ordered an endoscopy to my colonoscopy.   I had been dairy free since I was young.  Was told that I had an allergy.  I had not any GI issues with gluten.   I was an avid baker.  I had nut issues and also mushroom, garlic/onion, and egg intolerances.  I had some pretty severe allergies to medications (anaphylactic) and some seasonal allergies along cats and horses.   I was shocked.  My husband had been gluten free for 12 years prior to my diagnosis.  There is no way both of us would have gluten issues.  But...the tests did not lie.  My iron deficiency anemia resolved within months of my going gluten free.  Two months into the diagnosis, I fractured my back doing NOTHING!  I have osteoporosis as a results of having celiac disease.   Grief is completely understandable.  Denial is a part of grieving.  But the proof will be in follow-up blood tests and how you feel.   So, now I can eat nuts (not almonds), eggs (two a day every single)  and dairy.  Yes, ice cream!  I have yet to get back garlic and mushrooms, but I can live with that.   I have Hashimoto’s too.  .  Once you have one autoimmune disorder, you can develop more.  The gluten-free diet may help, not only your celiac disease, but your UC issues as well.   Try the diet.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised!  
    • Hi Sofie! Listen to KarenG.   We both had iron deficiency anemia when we were diagnosed.  Plus, I have Thalassemia which is a genetic anemia on top of the iron deficiency anemia.   Dumping iron into your system is not the solution.  You need to be seriously gluten free.  You are probably unknowingly damaging other parts of your body....like your bones.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back doing NOTHING!  Think you are just not getting enough oxygen to your brain?  Think again!  It is probably related to celiac disease.  Celiac disease is systemic.  It is not just about villi damage.   But why am I telling a college student this?   You should be researching your autoimmune illness and ensuring that you do not develop Cancer (rare) or another autoimmune disorder like lupus, diabetes, thyroiditis, MS, Crohn’s, or one of the almost 100 other Autoimmune disorders (common).    Get your antibodies down.  Your mild anemia is the least of your problems.  Raising  your ferritin level may help a little, but healing from celiac disease will help you a lot more!    
    • Let my start by giving a brief summary of what I’ve been diagnosed with. Just over the past year I’ve been diagnosed with Celiac, EOE, lactose intolerance, soy allergy, tree nut allergy. Most recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. The Colitis came 8 months after having found out I had celiac. I have never had problems with gluten in my life. Dairy was something I had to eliminate because of the excrutiating stomach pains I would get from it. But I can have gluten any day and not have a problem.  I was diagnosed with a biopsy and followed by bloodwork. But who’s to say that dairy wasn’t the cause? I just feel like the GI was very quick to jump on the diagnoses without fully understanding my medical history, prescriptions I’ve took in the past ie long term antibiotic use, accutance, and 7 years of constant NSAID use.
    • I think she wants you to be strictly gluten free and heal.  Not give you things to patch up the damage you are causing by not getting your antibodies down and healing.   I am sure  she expected that you would take your diagnosis seriously and eat gluten-free.  4 months after your diagnosis, your antibodies would have gone down better.  But you weren't eating gluten free.  Eat gluten free. Take your supplements.  Read about the correct way to get your iron up - B12, vitamin C, don't take with calcium foods, etc  
    • Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice from y'all about iron IV infusions. First, some background: I was diagnosed with celiac disease at the beginning of June this year (2017).  I had labs done in March and my serum ferritin was 5 ng/mL. Hgb was 11.1, which isn't all that low, but is still flagged as below the normal range. I took 325 mg ferrous gluconate supplements daily for two months, and when my ferritin was rechecked, it was down to 4. The doctor ordered a celiac antibody panel and all of the levels were high. Confirmed with endoscopy at the end of May. A month later, I left for a 2-month study abroad program in France (aka the land of bread and pastries). After returning to the US at the beginning of August, I finally went gluten-free.  At the beginning of September, I returned to my University. Almost immediately, I realized I was really tired and was having a hard time making it through the day without a nap. I finally had a follow-up GI appointment around September 20th with the PA of the doctor who performed my endoscopy (not the same doctor from March). During the appointment, I asked her what we would do if my labs showed an iron-defiency. She told me that we would either do oral supplements or IV infusions, depending on whether or not she thought I'd absorb the supplements. When the lab results came in on the online patient portal, she made no comment on any of the iron-related results, just sent me a message that my antibody levels were still quite high, that I needed to keep up a strict gluten-free diet, and that we would recheck everything in six months. My ferritin was down to 3, Hgb was 10.3, iron saturation 6%, etc.  I was concerned about those results, so I called the PA's nurse and left a voicemail asking what the plan was for getting those levels up and got a portal message back from the PA saying that my hemoglobin was slightly low and will get better over time as I cut out all the gluten in my diet, but that I can start taking supplements if I want to speed up the process. I know that the Hgb still isn't that low, but it seems like the ferritin level is more serious. I went back for an appointment with the doctor who first found the iron-deficiency back in the spring and she seemed a lot more concerned. When I brought up IV iron therapy, she seemed to think it was a good idea. However, she's a primary care physician through my school's clinic, so she can't give me infusions. She called the PA with the intention of finding out whether or not she would change her mind about infusions, and had no luck. Interestingly, the PA's nurse informed her that they don't expect me to be able to absorb the supplements right away, and would consider IV infusions after I've been gluten-free for another six months.  I've done a bit of research on the IV infusions and it seems like I fit the criteria. Based on my antibody levels, I'm clearly not able to absorb iron any better than back in the spring, when the oral supplements did nothing for me. I understand that once my intestines heal more, I'll start being able to absorb iron better and should be able to boost my levels with oral supplements. However, I feel like I need a solution that will help me much sooner. I have a very demanding course load this semester and I'm constantly exhausted. I fall asleep doing homework at least twice a week. My grades are suffering, my mental health is suffering, and my relationships are being tested. I still don't have an explanation for why the PA doesn't think IV infusions are appropriate and I don't understand it. I really don't know what to do next because I'm afraid if I try to talk to the PA again, she'll get annoyed. I know that was super long, so for anyone still reading, thank you for bearing with me!! Now for the questions: 1. Do you think iron IV infusions in the near future would be a reasonable treatment for me? 2. Do you have any advice on how to make them happen? And if you have any other advice that's relevant to my situation, I'd love to hear it!   Thanks so much, Sofie
