I have been a longtime fan of Terry's blog My Journey with Candida. For the past few years I have been fascinated with the detox cleanses she does, and I have learned quite a bit from her. But, as one who struggled for years to get my ulcerative colitis under control, I was terrified of doing any cleanse because I though it would throw me out of remission. But, a few months ago she had up symptoms of parasites in the body. I had almost every symptom! The one that bothered me most was the fatigue. I feel like I need a nap several times a day, and carry dark circles under my eyes constantly. Since we are taking a family trip in October, I really wanted to get these issues under control before we left. I did a little more research, and ended up buying the ingredients needed to start an 18 day parasite cleanse.
I bought all 3 products on iherb.com for a total of $21 shipped (I had a $5 coupon code that was applied to the order.) I printed out a handy dosage chart from drclark.net. You can find the chart HERE. Scroll down a bit to access it. It took about 2 days for my product to arrive, and once it did, I got started.
Here were my results:
Day 1 through 3: I notice a little grinding in my belly, but it isn't uncomfortable. I am also burping up the herbs all day. They don't taste bad, but it is annoying.
Day 4: A migraine starts kicking in. Terry tells me this is good as it indicates the parasites are dying off.
Day 7: The migraine is still going strong. I debate quitting the entire cleanse altogether to get some relief.
Day 8: The migraine is gone. My energy levels have significantly improved.
Day 12: I still haven't seen any parasites exit my body, though Terry says some people don't. You have to go "in" and dig them out. Not happening here!
Day 18: I am happy to have made it to the end of the cleanse. I have more energy than I have had in years, and I was thrilled the cleanse did not cause any bleeding or cramping, so it's safe to say, it did not throw me out of remission.
I never did see any parasites, but I think the cleanse did exactly what it was supposed to do. My husband also noticed I had more energy and wanted to drive to Terry's to give her a big hug for her influence on me starting the parasite cleanse. The only thing I would do differently is see if the black walnut comes in capsule form. The liquid was nasty, and I had to choke it down as the dosage increased.
Have you done any cleanses? What were your results?
