As a recap, my husband found out a year ago he had a parasite called Strongyloides, that was causing debilitating pain throughout his body for months. He took antibiotics and felt much better but not completely.
Months later my mom came down with the exact same symptoms as my husband and when she was tested, had the same parasite. She took antibiotics and had zero improvement. Dr.s have since told her she has a condition called Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) which affects your muscles and is so painful, she cannot function without being on steroids. :-(
Back in December, I began having all kinds of weird symptoms and, in January, tested positive for a parasite called whipworm. I took antibiotics because I just wanted it gone and my symptoms disappeared. Shortly after getting over this parasite, I began having stomach issues, severe bloating 24/7, lack of appetite, headaches and not feeling like myself. I waited a while thinking it was detox, stress or my body adjusting to eating so much fruit but after a while, I just knew I had another parasite and decided to get tested again.
Well I just got my tests back and it shows I have Strongyloides. Plus, my husband was retested and he has some organism that’s not even identifiable. OMG! I am so frustrated! But, thank God my symptoms aren’t debilitating the way they have been for my mom and husband.
We’ve both been taking a parasite supplement of wormwood, clove and black walnut for a couple weeks now, trying to get the situation under control. My husband is beginning to see great results but my improvement is slow.
You know how committed I am to this diet and how much it’s changed my life. There’s no other way of eating for me - This Is The Real Deal! I have felt better than I’ve ever felt in my entire life on this diet and literally cannot sing its praises loud enough. It’s changed so much for me.
I know the body is supposed to be strong enough to take care of these organisms in the stomach, before they reach the gut, but how does one get to that point?
How do you strengthen your digestive system beyond eating mono meals, when water fasting is not an option?
I really want to get back to living my life without this interference.
