I'm riddled with parasites

Been fatigued for six months and chalked it up to 2020. Wake up tired, take a nap during the day, get to bed early. Started having some stomach issues. Tons of gas and bloat and diarrhea. Again chalked it up to 2020 and anxiety. I've always been a clean, healthy eater with a rare indulgence here and there. Finally last month got a full panel done. Everything checked out just fine--healthy as a horse. Finally the stomach issues got so bad I went on an elimination diet which didn't make one bit of difference. Stomach cramps, awful bloating, and fatigue to the point I was taking a day off every week for about four months.

Decided to try the eastern route and went to a naturopath/energy reader who took a stool sample and I have worms. Yes, worms. Larva and eggs and worms. Could be from food or doorknobs or water or my dog or, or, or, or, or.

Now I'm on a hardcore THREE MONTH cleanse.

2020 can fuck itself in the ear.

If you have worms you need a damn site more than just a 'cleanse.'

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 107/30/2020

now do you believe us when we say eating shit is bad?

RIDDLED

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 307/30/2020

To double check this, ask your doc to send a stool sample to a legit lab for ova and parasites. If they don’t find anything, send your naturopath a side eye and dispute the bill.

Where TF do you live, OP? Whose trashy asshole have you been eating out? List all of this for us, so we can avoid places and people!

This is how you get rid of worms. I stole this from another DL’er, and can’t remember the exact details. First you put a piece of cheese up your ass. Then you put a mint up your ass. Repeat 2x. Finally put another piece of cheese up, and wait. When the worm pops out to ask “Where’s the mint”, boink it on the head.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 807/30/2020

I don't believe this shit for a second. You don't get rid of worms by going on a cleanse dear.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 907/30/2020

I believe a naturopath would suggest it, R9.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 1007/30/2020

Did you test your dog for worms?

R8, I thought it was a lemon cake.

It was hard-boiled eggs and lemon cookies.

Yeah, you can tapeworms from sushi. I've heard a horror story about a foot long one. I won't elaborate, because you know what happened.

OP rid us these worms.

OP- " Parasites" are a common diagnostic trope for Naturopathic doctors that unfortunately ( rarely) have little basis in reality. In modern Western society, unless you are planting crops barefoot in cow manure and other such *niceties* the chances of you being exposed to parasites are slim to none. Here is a very witty take-down of this subject by an M.D. on his Science blog. Be sure to read to the end:

OP here, the naturopath put me on this cleanse. Plus zero sugar for three months.

My dog had her annual checkup just weeks ago when things opened back up and she had no worms.

I called my primary (who is also a friendly acquaintance) with this news and she didn't seem shocked at all. "Happens pretty often, we all host parasites . . . most likely from sushi" was her response. I do eat a lot of sashimi. She also recommended a cleanse to start and zero carbs while I'm on it.

She told me I'd be very intimate with my toilet for about a month.

OP again, and I hear ya, R19.

At this point, I'm so desperate I'm willing to try anything. I left out some of the less savory details, but something ain't right with my lower bowels. So far, nothing has alleviated it.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 2407/30/2020

OP, why didn’t your MD take a stool sample? I would go back to her and get a real stool analysis done, in a medical lab.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 2507/30/2020

OP, if you have worms, a cleanse won’t get rid of them (or do anything else useful). You need to have your doctor analyse a stool sample, and prescribe an appropriate anthelmintic to get rid of them. Worm your dog, too.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 2607/30/2020

OP again, I'm taking in stool tomorrow to my primary so she can analyze as well. She knows the naturopath that saw me and trusts her, they work in the same university clinic together. (The naturopath is an ND/PhD in a research hospital and a respected "energy" person. I guffawed too until smart people I trust swore by her.)

I just kind of can't get over the thought of having worms in my body.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 2707/30/2020

What are your sex practices, OP?

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 2807/30/2020

I would think some kind of medicine would be necessary. If vets can deworm our pets, surely docs have something for humans!

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 2907/30/2020

Once you have the test you will know for certain. There are some medicines that can knock them out quickly. Doubt a 'cleanse' will do anything.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 3007/30/2020

OP you MUST get on proper de worming medicine, this is insane. The worms aren't going to be starved into submission like some fat kid denied his dessert.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 3107/30/2020

You disgust me, OP.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 3207/30/2020

I can tell you having worked a number of times in rural India treatment via drugs to kill parasites is unpleasant Very unpleasant. Today I'd try a Naturapath first to see what successful alternative treatments he offers.

R34. No.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 3607/31/2020

Worms are pretty common in children. All you need to do is take two doses of a tablet you can get from any pharmacy and they're gone in days.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 3707/31/2020

I don't believe your primary doctor talked to you over the phone, first of all. I definitely don't believe they discussed a diagnosis with you without having received paperwork from the other clinic, and I sure as shit don't believe they shrugged and said, "Sure, worms are totally common, that's probably what you've got, dude."

And I DEFINITELY do not believe a medical doctor prescribed a cleanse to treat parasitic worms. There is literally no evidence saying that a parasitic cleanse works. Just because Goop's website tells you it's real doesn't mean it is.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 3807/31/2020

Shit troll strikes again.

The truly sad part is he is probably the second or third most creative one on this website.Or should I say webshit.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 3907/31/2020

Those who eat sushi regularly usually have parasites.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4007/31/2020

you are on dl, op.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4107/31/2020

Our next door neighbor growing up had worms. She was probably 8 years old when it happened. I remember my mother saying the girl’s parents had to put a line of scotch tape on her butt crack while she slept and then in the morning when they took it off they found some small worms stuck on it.

Could that be true?

It’s burned in my memory.

Good luck OP.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4207/31/2020

I believe you can simply buy Albendazol tablets at a drug store and it should kill them

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4307/31/2020

I take Pyrantel or similar twice a year. It can come from raw vegetables (not well washed) etc.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4407/31/2020

Naturopath?!

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4507/31/2020

OP, if you have worms, you can see them in your shit. A simple dissolvable tablet will get rid of them. No "cleanse" is going to get rid of worms, you fucking idiot.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4607/31/2020

I was diddled by parasites.

To be fair, it was a dom sub situation that got out of hand.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4707/31/2020

OPs story is so obviously made up r38. Some people will believe anything.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 4807/31/2020

Worms like to wriggle out of your butt at night and forage. So yes the tape on the but crack was probably true.

You have Giardia. Get a stool sample order from your MD and confirm it. It’s easily treatable with antibiotics.

the worms go out

the worms play pinochle on your ass

thx for sharing

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 5307/31/2020

R51 is dead-on accurate. A cleanse WILL NOT CORRECT THIS. You may feel MILDLY better temporarily, but absolutely you must take antibiotics. It's quite simple to diagnose. Tell your regular MD or whoever, that you think you have Giardia - it's not rare, but sure in the hell won't get cleared up with a cleanse.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 5407/31/2020

Don't listen to r8! You need to use hard boil eggs and lemon cookies.

[quote] Hard boil a doxen eggs and buy eleven lemon cookies. Each day shove a hard boiled egg up your ass, wait a few minutes and shove alemon cookie up your butt. On the twelfth day shove the last egg up your ass and when the worm comes out and says "Hey where's my lemon cookie" hit it on the head with a hmmer.

American and Brits are so dirty that they normally wear their outdoor shoes in the house. No wonder they are afflicted with dementia.

OP, you might also have HIV, making you more susceptible to parasitic infection. Thankfully you have an energy healer to clear that all up.

You need the real medicine, above all. If you are interested in a preventative in the future, eating raw garlic cloves makes your body much less tempting for the little creatures.

R58 is a great parasite supplement and cayenne pills will also kill parasites, but start slow.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 6207/31/2020

“Happens pretty often, we all host parasites . . . most likely from sushi" was her response. I do eat a lot of sashimi. She also recommended a cleanse to start and zero carbs while I'm on it.”

I’m having a hard time believing that a board-certified physician made these statements - over the phone no less, without any diagnostics.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 6307/31/2020

Neither a parasite supplement nor cayenne will kill Giardia, if that is what you have. Get to a real doctor for god's sake.

We have at least one hardcore "sushi will give you worms!" troll. This whole thread has their pawprints all over it. If sushi were such a menace, the Japanese would be a worm-infested race. Alas they are not.

Go to the dr OP. I have heard of taking liquid Grapefruit Seed Extract if the initial stool test is inconclusive as a just in case.

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 6707/31/2020

OP here. For all the "no real doctor would take your call over the phone." As I mentioned, my primary is also a friend/acquaintance (our kids go to school together and we see each other socially often) and I called to ask her about the natural cleanse. This wasn't an in-person scheduled appointment like the one I had with her colleague, the ND/PhD who recommended starting with a cleanse.

Anyhow, as the primary recommended, I just dropped a stool sample at my regular clinic this morning. We'll see what they have to say. And yes, R67, I was told not to have any grapefruit within 24 hours of bringing in the sample.

(And why the hell would I make up a story like this?)

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 6807/31/2020

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is a cleanse? How is it different from a fast? If it’s your intestines being cleansed, then what do you cleanse them with? Vinegar? Soap? Oil?

Also: how does a cleanse relate to a high colonic? Can someone get a cleanse and a high colonic at the same time or are they mutually exclusive?

by 9.8 on the rectum scalereply 6907/31/2020

Don't! This is what happens if you eat raw fish. You don't know where that fish comes from or who has handled it. Count your fucking blessings that you don't have hepatitis A, also.

Or, who knows? Maybe you do.

So many stupid fraus on this thread. All fish for sushi, sashimi and other raw presentation is flash frozen before thawed for prep. The freezing kills anything of concern.
