Antiparasitic General Regimen

Summary: Use an antiparasitic regimen if parasites are suspected.The best single product for this is probably Eclectic Institute's Para-Fight (formally known as Intestinal Support) taken at double serving size.

At the end of this article is the tapeworm protocol, which contains additional measures since they are harder to fight than most other parasitic infections. The CAFL contains a warning to use a tapeworm protocol when running frequency sets for tapeworms, so that section is geared toward being used concurrently with a rife device but it contains supplement recommendations which are appropriate even if bioelectronics are not used.

For any supplement, and especially antiparasitics, start off with a small dose to ensure no allergies, but keep in mind that deparasitizing can involve a detox reaction. Everyone in the house, including and especially pets, should deparasitize at the same time. While this is being done, do the Dust Cleanup and practice perfect hygiene.

Eclectic Institute Para-Fight (formally known as Intestinal Support) (formerly known as Black Walnut Wormwood capsules) contains water-extracted concentrates of black walnut, clove, and wormwood with both annua and absynthium types. It does not stimulate elimination directly as do many antiparasitic combinations. Wormwood annua (source of artemisinin) increases its effectiveness plus it treats blood borne parasites like spirochetes, too. It can be used at double recommended dosage the first week (after building up slowly), recommended dosage the second week, and for either a week every month or two days per week at recommended dosage afterward for maintenance. If the problem is not relieved by then, it can be taken longer term, using it three weeks on and one week off until the condition is relieved.

Other excellent choices of widely available commercial antiparasitics are RenewLife Paragone and Nature's Secret Parastroy. These both stimulate elimination by including a small amount of laxative herbs, which makes them more effective but not appropriate if elimination is already too frequent. They include herbs which clean other organs besides the intestines, too, so can be helpful to prevent detox.

Sometimes, someone who is deparasitizing will develop diarrhea which continues for a week or more even after supplement use has ceased. If this is the case, immediately get suma and use at recommended serving size. It helps against parasites and increases energy levels, but is mostly an astringent which helps if elimination is too frequent. If the parasite infection was severe, then damage to the intestines can result in diarrhea. If this is the case, use an enzyme product which contains glutamine like RenewLife Digestmore (or use glutamine separately with another enzyme product) or eat plenty of cabbage. Cabbage in whatever form is one of the best antiparasitic foods. It is also rich in intestine-healing glutamine. The Cultured Cabbage Juice recipe is ideal, but in this case it is also acceptable to just eat fresh cabbage or blend it with water and drink the liquid. Even cooked cabbage is effective, but less so than cultured or raw.

Hulda Clark's antiparasitic regimen is green black walnut tincture, cloves, and wormwood in large doses. It is probably the most effective, but some people will not go to the trouble of buying the three supplements and taking them all. The fresh clove capsules that Clark recommends (Kroeger Herbs and Blue Moon make some which are available in health food stores) can also be added to the antiparasitic combinations mentioned above to increase the effects. She now says that some black walnut capsules can be as effective as the awful-tasting tincture which goes stale quickly, so these would be a good choice. Eclectic Institute makes freeze-dried water-extracted black walnut concentrate capsules. The more serious the ailment the more I would consider using her recommendations of the three products together.

Digestive enzymes like RenewLife ParaZyme, an acidic enzyme which helps against parasites, can be useful for those with low digestive acid production. Enzymes alone can be very helpful against some parasites.

The Water Cure can be valuable during deparasitizing to remove debris from the blood, kidneys, and liver so detox is lessened and parasites can continue to be fought aggressively. To better ensure these organs are clean, see the kidney and liver cleansing regimens. The Zone Diet is recommended to control blood sugar since high levels stimulate parasites which are in the blood and eating starches and other sugars stimulate ones in the digestive tract.

Ideally, everyone in the family should deparasitize at the same time, including and especially any pets. For pets there are available heartworm medications that also treat roundworms, and this type is recommended. The most popular types are Heartgard Plus and Interceptor, and they can be prescribed by a veterinarian. These have standard heartworm medication along with pyrantel pomoate for roundworms. Pyrantel pomoate is an antiparasitic for roundworms that is very safe for dogs or humans.

Pyrantel pomoate is the active ingredient in Pin-X, an over the counter product available in drug stores used to treat pinworms, typically in children. However, pyrantel pomoate of the same strength is also available by prescription to treat other roundworms such as ascaris and whipworms.

Tapeworm Protocol

This is from a post to the Electroherbalism listserver.

The tapeworm frequency set warning mentioned in the CAFL is given so that the infection is not made worse when rifing these critters. Almost all the segments of the tapeworm contain eggs and if the segments are destroyed without addressing the eggs, which may have at least a slightly different MOR, the problem can be made worse. This is not as much a problem if the infection is contained within the digestive tract but if it is in tissue outside it, it can be a big problem.

If tapeworms are suspected, the first thing to do is start an antiparasitic tapeworm supplement regimen. This consists of using Eclectic Institute Black Walnut Wormwood capsules along with Kroeger Herb's Rascal and additional clove capsules (Blue Moon or Kroeger brand). Build up slowly on the antiparasitics, to regular dose of the Rascal and cloves and double recommended dosage on the Eclectic Institute Black Walnut. After a week of double dosage, back down to recommended of the Black Walnut Wormwood. Eating two tablespoons or more of raw hulled pumpkin seeds each day adds to the effect and is strongly recommended (plus they are a good EFA supplement).

Raw, hulled pumpkin seeds are a good antiparasitic for most types of parasites, but are best known for fighting tapeworms. Oddly, tapeworm segments expelled in the feces are often said to look like pumpkin seeds. Pumpkins seeds are also a good EFA supplement and a healthy addition to any diet.

Ensure elimination is sufficient. Following the Water Cure is a good idea as is eating plenty of non-starchy vegetables. Taking a teaspoon of vitamin C before bed is also a good measure (start with a half gram and build up slowly if not used to taking large doses of C).

After at least a few days of using the supplements, I would run the tapeworm sets. When they run, note any "hit" frequencies. Run these for an extended period plus scan at least 10Hz on either side of them. If there are strong hits or detox reaction from the set, use these same frequencies the next day along with scans. Good ranges for scans include 430 - 490, 800 -1000, 2000 - 2600, and 4300 - 4900 (Hz). Again, note any hits and run for an extended period.

If after using these measures the indications are that there is indeed a tapeworm infection, and after four weeks the problem has gotten worse, I would add Eclectic Institute Black Walnut capsules (the freeze dried concentrate), double the dose of Rascal and cloves, and use at least 400mg of CoQ10 per day.

After the regimen is complete and the problem is under control, I would continue to use CoQ10 (100- 200mg per day), Rascal, and panax ginseng long term while using the Eclectic Institute product one week per month until it is ensured there is no reinfection. Ginseng and CoQ appear to work by "oxygenating" the blood. Ginseng is not typically used as a treatment, but is probably valuable as a preventative.

The CDC Parasitology website has some good jpg pictures in the "Identification and Diagnosis of Parasites of Public Concern" section. They include for many parasites diagnostic findings with microscopy *and* for some of the larger bugs, macroscopy, which is what they look like in their "natural" state instead of mounted and dyed like most parasite pics are. They also have a great section on "Morphologic comparisons of intestinal parasites" for help in diagnosing parasites from stool samples.

CureZone Parasite Pages includes a huge number of pictures and picture links as well as background information.

The Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratory was the first large conventional lab diagnostic testing facility in the US to recognize the significance of pathogens like yeast and parasites and is still the most renowned. They also do metabolic diagnostics.

Cells Alive! is a site dealing mostly with microscopic pathogens and explains in a simple way some aspects of cell biology plus includes many videos of the processes. It has a short pictorial article on how a virus (bacteriaphage) can infect bacteria (e. coli) and immunology topics like allergies, how mites cause itching, antibody production, and even the anatomy of a splinter.
