Could I or do I need a parasite and worm detox cleanse?

Could I or do I need a parasite and worm detox cleanse?

You’ve got to check this out on Amazon Now Foods Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex, 2-Ounce

Recently my Mom began educating me on the fact we all have parasites and worms in us. This isn’t a good thing. She sent me all kinds of information. I began to educate myself on this topic and was surprised at what I learned. Not only did my Mom tell me about this stuff but I had a friend independently of this new information tell me he had a blood test done to learn about his health. Apparently he could see parasites in his blood! Wow, these two things made me take a closer look at the solutions for such scenarios.

I purchased the Now Product and began taking it. I was only doing 2 drops 3x a day. After going back and re-reading the reviews it seems that we need to take the full dropper! I’m glad I went back and discovered this fact. Since the 15th of April I’ve been taking 2-4 droppers full of the Now Complex. I think it’s still too early to anticipate some of the things taking place that I’ve read online. I will say, “I do feel much better and more energetic.” I will continue to monitor the results and changes noticed within my body. Who knows maybe I’ll need to take some pictures as well if anything like what I read on Amazon comes about.

The reason I’m sharing this product is because there’s others out there that cost about $30/bottle. This item is only $12 or so shipped. What a deal for such tremendous healing potential! I figure if you’ve ever been to another country, eaten sushi or pork you’d be candidate to be blessed by using this product. I plan to do this for at least 3 months, just to see the long term affects. Keep in mind the instructions advise 2 weeks on, 1 week off. I will repeat that cycle for about 3 months and then re-evaluate how much more I need to do or not?

I also learned that we are always picking up worms and parasites, so a continual detox regiment on a yearly basis might be good? It’s only been a few days in so far so I’ll see where this goes. Listed below is the most popular testimony posted on Amazon. It will blow your mind! This testimony sold me on the product by itself. The other reviews helped to re-enforce that which was stated in the first testimony. It was quite the learning process reading the way different people’s stories came about.

This is one testimony on the 460+ reviews from Amazon, gnarly!

“Sounds a bit dramatic, but in my case I know this product has brought me back to the land of the living. I’m writing this review in the hope it might help someone out there as it has helped me.

I decided to try this as many have after having chronic health issues for the past 2-4 years, which in the past few months were seriously impacting my quality of life. Carcinoid cancer was suspected, but not confirmed after several tests. Like others, doctors wanted to continue with expensive tests and additional medications as none were conclusive or entirely effective. I had constant gastrointestinal problems, facial flushing, migraines, debilitating fatigue, constant unproductive cough with wheezing, shortness of breath, bloat, abdominal pain, a large, hard lump by my spine was growing and protruding out from my back. It occasionally ached. I had acute pancreatic attacks that felt like I was having a heart attack. The worst was the drying of my eyes which diminished my eyesight and would sometimes result in sharp, excruciating pain behind my eyes, particularly my left eye. I had to tape my eyes shut at night to keep them moist, or pay the painful consequences when I tried to open my eye lids upon awakening. My skin was yellowing, and my eyes seemed to be sinking in their sockets. I was losing hair (fortunately, I have a lot of it), but it was mainly breaking off. I was constantly nauseated which resulted in my eating very little, and only eating a handful of the same things because that was all I could tolerate. Despite this unintentional semi-fasting state, my abdomen seemed to be increasing in size. I no longer had the strength to jog or exercise, had very limited energy, and could easily sleep for nearly an entire day without feeling rested. Quality of life was down the toilet and I became increasingly reclusive. When you don’t feel or look well, you find you retreat more and more into yourself. I and my family were certain that once they finally figured out what was wrong with me, (was it CS, IBS, CFS, Chron’s, etc.) the prognosis would be grim. I began to mentally prepare for that.

Then one day, I noticed something unusual looking after a bowel movement. Since Carcinoid Syndrome effects the gastrointestinal system, I was advised to be monitoring such things. It was long (4″ – 5”) and alabaster white, about as thick as thin spaghetti. It had a smooth surface, but at one end it diverged off into 3 separate “segments” which curled at the tips. Whaaaaat is that?! This occurred after eating a large amount of fresh garlic during the previous meal, but looked like nothing I had eaten, ever. About 4 months earlier I had also notice what looked like it could be a small, 1″ worm, rice-shaped, but not being sure and not wanting to “investigate” further I dismissed it. I told my boyfriend and being the google wiz he is, he found images online of what I had just seen: roundworms. Toxocariasis, in fact. Toxocariasis is an illness caused by larvae of either the dog roundworm (Toxocara canis) or the cat roundworm (Toxocara cati). We have both a dog and cat who had worms, and I volunteered for a cat rescue group taking care of sick, feral kittens before I started to have the above symptoms.

We figured it couldn’t hurt to purge myself of what might be ailing me. Started with Reese’s Pinworm treatment, although I had no symptoms for pinworms it did contain a prescription strength dosage of mebendazole, which is also used to treat roundworms. The same day, I took my first dosage of Wormwood. The Reese’s certainly got the ball rolling, but did not complete the job. I took half a dropper full 3x of the Now Foods wormwood complex the first day and worked my way up to 2 full droppers, 3x per day by day 7. Be SURE to put the filled dropper as far back toward your throat and tongue as you can without gagging before releasing the dose. Have something to drink right next to you when you do (I had de-fizzed diet 7up to the right, cold water to the left). Shoot the tincture of wormwood down your throat, swallow, and take a drink. You mostly taste cloves. It’s strong, but manageable. And the health benefits make the taste issue totally worth it. After a while, you actually want to take your dose. (My boyfriend put his dose in hot tea and said he couldn’t taste it when taken that way)

I started to see small, white specimens passing (1/3 to 1/2 the size of a grain of rice), hundreds of them, by day 3 or 4. But it wasn’t until day 7 that I saw clear signs of a parasitic infection. My eye pain and inflammation was lessening, as was the size of the lump protruding from my back. And also by this time, my energy level was way up. No more headaches, no bloat, no abdominal pain, no gastrointestinal distress, no chest pain and coughing/wheezing cut in half. By the end of the first 2 weeks, I was passing what could have only been adult worms. Horrifying!

I took the 1 week break, then kicked off the next two weeks with another dose of Reese’s followed right after with 3 dropper fulls of the wormwood. Within 4 hours of this regime I eliminated what I can only describe as something from a sci-fi flick. It is still hard for me to believe it. Those things were literally eating my life and vision away. By the end of week 3, a small lump appeared in the corner of my left eye, with some hardening around my tear duct. I pressed on it, and opaque-colored fluid began to ooze from my eye. After applying warm compresses and pressure to the area for 24 hours, the lump and harness were gone. And so was my eye pain, dryness, and chronic ocular inflammation. The worm, invading my left eye, had turned – literally. So did the one on top of my right foot, and shimmying down my left thigh. The wormwood had them dieing off and on the run. I did experience 2-4 days of “die off” symptoms during the first and second treatment, mostly a return to extreme fatigue, headaches, and some nausea. But it was nothing compared to how I had been suffering before I took this treatment. You’ll get through it. And thankfully I did not experience any of the side-effects some people sensitive to Thujone may have. Please start out with a light dosage and work your way up to the 2 full dropper fulls (or more) 3x per day to ensure you don’t have any sensitivity either. Google “Thujone” or “Absinthe overdose symptoms” so you know what to look for.

By the end of the 4th week I felt alive again for the first time in a long, long time. In fact, I had felt so ill for so long that I had forgotten what it was like to feel “normal” again. I felt like I was in my 20’s. Tons of energy and a positive mental attitude. My bowel movements are now regular without discomfort for the first time in 4 years. I am no longer wheezing/coughing or experiencing shortness of breath, facial flushing, hair loss, or any gastric or abdominal problems. I am hungry again. My stomach is no longer distended or hard, or tender to the touch. I’ve lost weight, and started exercising, slowly :), again. I no longer have to tape my eyes shut to sleep and my 3-5x daily use of artificial tears has dropped to 1x or 2x a week. My skin color is even and no longer yellow; I don’t have that drawn, sunken-eye, ill look. I feel well again. Interestingly, what was thought to be a tumor against my spine and probably inoperable and cancerous, is now about 1/3 its size before I started taking this stuff. Turns out it was an encysted granulomatous nodule, which is, hold on to your lunches, a worm larvae sack embedded in my muscle wall. Holy American Horror Story Batman…!

This stuff saved my life. Parasitic infections are not routinely tested for or considered when doctors are presented with the symptoms I had… I didn’t consider it myself. So often people are misdiagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or even asthma or a myriad of ocular diseases instead. So if you are struggling like I was just a month or so ago, getting worse all the time, and you don’t have a sensitivity to the ingredients in this product, what can it hurt to try it? Just be sure to stick with it and take the recommended dosages (I’ll admit I sometimes exceeded them, but then I had a large infestation). And, turns out there are some added & unexpected health benefits… now at week six (and off the stuff again for a week, but about to start and maintain a 2 week monthly regimen), my skin is very healthy looking and soft. It looks 10 years younger. My boyfriend even complimented me on it yesterday (and he’s Irish :). In January I started menopause. By February I was having non-stop hot flashes. After taking wormwood for 2 weeks, the hot flashes stopped. My estrogen levels increased again and my period returned. I have read that wormwood, an ancient herb/plant, is known for having this healthful effect on women. Do check with your doctor, but even just as a nutritional supplement its antioxident, antifungal, and antinflammatory properties have been documented. And parasites hate it. This product did/does the job for me, and I hope it helps you too.”

Click the image or links above and read all the comments that go with this testimony. WOW. WOW. WOW.

Please let me know if you do this and what you experience. I’m less than a week in now but will continue to update this post accordingly. I don’t know if pictures will be good or not? We’ll see how things transpire. I’m probably going to refrain from posting pictures at this point for the sake of the innocent and all parties involved. 😉

Turn Over the Passover Seder Tables???

Table setting
Recently, I found myself helping out at a Passover Seder meal.  Once everything was over and the tables were cleared it was finally time to put the tables away.  As I was breaking down a folding table a vision went through my head of the tables still full with all the dishes, silverware and decorations.  At that moment I was tipping the tables over (which were cleared,)  I thought of the passage where it’s mentioned Jesus turned over the tables in the Temple.  For some reason it seemed like a novel idea to have a feast and then let the guests throw the tables over afterwards.  Kind of similar to the dish throwing at Greek weddings.  It seemed humorous to me at the time.

Here’s the passage that came to mind:

13 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. 16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” 17 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up.” 18 So the Jews answered and said to Him, “What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?” 19 Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” [John 2:13-19 NKJV]

I was having fun cleaning up and laughing with the people I was working with.  Turning tables over, throwing dishes and having a food fight seemed like a fun idea and a great way to end a party, but how often does that ever happen? Never.

The thing about the comment was it was so random and not something I would normally communicate.  Today I found myself pondering this idea of turning the tables over after a meal.  What was Jesus doing when He was turning tables over?  What was His purpose behind it all?  What’s the message conveyed if people were to finish a meal and then turn the tables over and have a food fight or something?

It seemed the Holy Spirit took me back to the situation of putting the tables away and pointed some things out.  The major thing I took away from the experience was this idea, “If there’s nothing on the table when it’s overturned, is there a problem?”  The only reason there was a problem when Jesus did it was because the tables were filled with merchandise, money and the like.  The people’s focus were completely on the wrong priorities.

At this particular congregation I was helping with the Seder, I couldn’t help but think that the Lord was saying, “There’s nothing on the tables. So how can there be a problem?”  How can there be a problem turning empty tables over I thought?  All that happens is there are turned over tables.  Setting them back up is relatively simple.

What’s even more interesting is that I had no conscious idea the time period Jesus over turned the tables was on Passover specifically.  Wow.  I was helping break down a Passover Celebration as these very words came out of my mouth.  Fascinating.

What’s the Lord revealing?

Let’s focus on the Scripture now.  The Passover is a Holy Holiday or Celebration unto the LORD.  To have people exchanging money, buying, selling and doing business in the Temple was a complete mockery to God and a total insult.  The people were suppose to be resting, remembering what God had done for Israel all the way back to Egypt and definitely not to be earning mammon in the House of the Most High.

Jesus was filled with zeal for His Father’s house.  Not only did He have zeal for His Father’s house but He was probably a year away, maybe three from becoming the Passover Lamb Himself for all of Israel – past, present and future.  Jesus knew full well the destiny for which He was created at this point in time.  These people could care less about the Passover in many ways.  Passover became a “tradition” rather than part of their relationship to understanding and knowing YHWH.  I can see why Jesus became so intense over the things taking place before His eyes.

Look what He says in verse 19, “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.”  He knew in a very short period of time this prophetic statement would become a reality.  Perhaps He made a big commotion to simply get the people’s attention on the Passover itself so that they’ll take it to heart the next year or year after when He was to hang on a cross?  Maybe He wanted those people to get the fact He was the Lamb?  If He had to turn tables over to get it into their heads; what the Passover actually meant and actually what it was to look like for their sins to be forgiven once and for all?

No doubt I will continue to ponder my recent statements about turning the tables over as we broke down the Seder.  The LORD speaks in this day and age.  We simply need to have ears to hear.

The question is, are your tables filled with stuff or cleared?  Would it matter if Jesus turned over your tables or not?  Would there be a mess or would you simply have a table turned over?  Are you doing business on the Passover or are you meditating on what Jesus did for you and I?  He cares.  He cares today.  It’s a big deal.  Get under the Passover…

PS – The Seder was AWESOME and the most fun I’d had at one to date! If you’ve never been to one, go next year. 😉

Matthew 18. Where Have You Gone?


15 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 “But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ 17 “And if he refuses to hear them, tell [it] to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.
Matthew 18:15-17

When was the last time I went to my brother or anyone for that matter and expressly communicated, “Bro, Friend, Neighbor, you sinned against me and this is how you did it.  Can we change or prevent this from happening again?  It doesn’t feel very good.”  I have done this with people from time to time as I’ve become cognizant of an injustice committed against me.  We all know when we’ve been robbed of something because it hurts, it costs us something and we want it rectified.  The challenge is to not go off and tell the rest of the country about the injustice committed against you because in the end, nobody can do anything about it; other than the two people in conflict.

Moving beyond that simple notion of going to an individual and communicating an issue between the two of us, when was the last I got someone else involved in a matter?  There was a time an individual cut me out of a business deal.  I asked if another individual could join us in the meeting to figure out how to go our separate ways, as at this point we’ve had several conversations back and forth.  My request was denied.  The individual I was attempting to work things out with refused the mutual friend to get involved and hear both sides of the issue.  This is one time specifically Matthew 18 was attempted. I’m sure there’s more situations where getting another involved in a dispute has occurred, but it’s a VERY rare occasion it seems.  It would be nice if this were not the case, simply because there’s wisdom in a multitude of counselors… assuming all parties involved have ears to hear.

The last step is to bring it before the Church.  The idea and definition of what “Church” is in the Western mindset is completely distorted from what is depicted in the Gospels.  I couldn’t imagine this last part ever taking place at a mega “Church.”  Imagine there’s an issue taking place and one individual is not receiving what the others are communicating, “Up, you know what that means, Sunday service before 20,000 people we’re going to bring this before them so everyone will know, YOU’RE BAAAAAD! EVIL.”  I’m exaggerating a bit but you get the idea.  Basically, we’re to bring this before the people in our lives that are believers, part of the Bride of Christ and speak into our lives fairly regularly.  I’m sure you’re familiar with the term, “intervention.”  This is when someone is addicted to alcohol, they’re in denial, so everyone close to them get together and confront them on their addiction.  This example seems to be the most fitting for what Jesus is communicating in Matthew 18 regarding bring it to the Church body.

If I or we became a people that began to implement this format into our relationships, families and lives, it would greatly increase our connection with others.  I believe this to be true because when done properly we usually win our brother back into proper relationship.

  1. It demonstrates we care enough about someone to point out how they have or are hurting us.  Much of the time we’re not aware there’s even a problem because we’re so self absorbed as humans.
  2. Communicating the issue allows the individual at fault to “learn” and “mature.” Letting it go and not saying anything leaves a missed opportunity for character development to take place for those involved.
  3. Generally, I’ve discovered when someone has fault against me or I have fault against them and the situation comes to light or is confronted; my relationship with that individual deepens.  It might be painful to confront initially, but on the other side of working through the situation – love and respect generally are the fruit developed.
  4. In the absence of communication, it gives way to much room for the enemy.
    Suspicion, resentment, anger, division, bitterness and unforgiveness are some examples of fruit we become susceptible to without healthy communication.  The environment can become stail and stagnant.  Speaking openly about a matter with another or in a small group of people is very healthy, in most cases.  I say in “most cases” because there’s always the unique situation that requires more wisdom on how to approach a matter tactfully with the right people.  Ultimately, when we bring a matter to another person who has the ability to remain “reasonable” we will win them in the sense of gained our brother, friend or neighbor back.  The more we become transparent, speaking openly, keeping in mind we are all fallible individuals the greater sense of life and connection we can offer the people around us.  Jesus came so that we might have life and life abundant.  His teaching here in Matthew offers practical tools to maintaining an abundant life.

What if we all began to follow this model and implemented it into our lives?  What if we stopped sweeping things under the rug and simply cleaned up issues right the first time?  What if we began confronting issues head on?  Could you imagine how much stronger and powerful all of our individual relationships, families and churches would be?  How mature we would become?  One problem/challenge in the world today and the Church is a gross lack of maturity.  We need each other’s feedback, care and communication to truly mature and grow as individuals.  Apart from confrontation, everyone simply spins their wheels in the mud not developing in a more profound way.

I’m in your life and you’re in my life (the people in your life), as each other’s character development program.  The sooner we begin to realize this fact the better.  God’s seen fit to bring lives of individuals together for the express intent of mining out the gold inside all of us.  He uses people for the mining process to complete that purpose.  Don’t run from God’s process, but embrace it, follow it.  There’s life in His process because He’s faithful to complete the GOOD work He’s begun in us.

Let’s begin to seek connection in truth, humility and forgiveness towards one another.  Jesus is worth it.  Love boldly.  Love courageously.
