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.

    • Just thought of something else.  Have you tried cream of rice cereal?   When I was at my worst, I'd have this a few times a day to settle my stomach. 
    • Hi I'm new to this site, well kinda lol I have been browsing for quite some time. I have celiac, I have been told to go gluten free, which I have for approx a year, the only symptoms I have is diarrhea, I have not had a solid stool in over 2 years, I am at wits end, I have tried esstential oils to special diets and nothing seems to make my stool solid. I tried the scd diet for a few days and made me very sick. Any advice or to k ow I am not alone would be great. Thankyou in advance
    • The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA TTG IGG DGP IGA DGP IGG EMA IGA   You can either have a gastroenterologist order the full celiac panel plus whatever else they typically test for, or you can order your own test at a site like walkinlab.com. At walkinlab.com it's called the celiac comprehensive test and costs $298.00 (not covered by insurance). Then if any one test comes up high you can give it to your gastroenterologist so they can do an endoscopy. The blood draw is done at your nearest Labcorp. Personally I'd make an appointment at the gastro so they can order their other blood tests and just insist on the full celiac panel also. There's any number of things it could be, not just celiac. If you don't get diagnosed you probably won't stick with a 100 percent gluten free diet for the many months required to see if it works. Good luck in your search.
    • You could certainly try.  Just remember that, if the mix doesn't have xanthum gum, you may need a little.  
    • Maybe the 20 mg. was too strong for you and increasing symptoms?   I have a very low threshold for most meds, and do better on child sized doses.   If you tolerate the 10 mg., that may be the way to go just to get symptoms under control and get stabilized.  Or maybe 10 mg. every other day, if that works. I read that food intolerance symptoms can take 24 to 48 hours to show up.   Can you think of what you were eating in the week before all this started?   I have always used dairy to settle my stomach, so until I figured out the dairy intolerance I was using a small glass of warm milk whenever my stomach was upset.   It provided immediate relief, but caught up with me hours later.   It was kind of hard to believe that milk was the cause when it was so effective in immediate symptom management.    I had also increased chocolate, coffee, and peanut butter right around the same time.  They don't seem to be intolerances (or maybe they are in huge quantities!), but they were irritants, so I needed to avoid them to get things to settle down.  Now that I'm approaching the 3 month point and starting to do better, I have been able to drink coffee with soy milk to buffer, have a little chocolate, and sample some peanuts without much distress.  Perhaps the hardest part of all of this is the time it takes (why forever?!), and how limited one's diet must be for so long in order to stabilize.  I was so sick of eating the same thing for so many weeks, that I started dreading the next meal.  I agree that symptoms and recovery become a blur.  I started making notes on a calendar so I could be more objective and accurate in looking back to assess my symptoms, what I'd tried, and progress.  Otherwise, I just couldn't tell what really did and didn't work.   What seemed like a week ago was really 2 or 3 ... I know you know what I mean! Do follow up with your doctor as need be.  I find that GI docs aren't that helpful for this sort of thing as it's minor in the general scheme of GI things.  My PCP basically told me it was trial and error, as it's different for each one of us.  He could only guide me in meds.
