Do I have parasites?

by Carol

Do I have parasites?

I am 52 years old. I have a feeling in my stomach as though a baby is fluttering inside me, right lower side. At times I can actually feel something move, and NO I am not pregnant.

Also I try to lose weight, but nothing seems to help. I do not eat that much, but yet I am overweight. I do have diarrhea occasionally and am on Lomotil and take only when necessary.

Now the newest thing---- My anus is itchy and has a really red rash around the whole area. It just came out of nowhere.

Nothing seems to help. I tried Prep H, Desatin, Vit. A&D Ointment, even Monostat. I read somewhere this may be the problem. What do you think? Do I have parasites?

Hi Carol,

I'm not a doctor, of course, so I can't "diagnose" you in any way. But based on what you have described....

Do you have parasites? Yes, it does sound as if you do. I don't necessarily think it is the reason for all of the symptoms you have described, but at least some of them.

Starting at the bottom and working up, quite literally, :-) it sounds like you probably have a yeast infection (Candida) that is causing the itching in your anus, etc.

Candida can also cause a wide range of symptoms that seem like they are the result of something else, so it often goes undetected for long periods.

First of all, cut out as much sugar from your diet as possible for a little while. That means most processed foods as they actually 'feed' the yeast growth. Also, try to avoid yeasty foods, like breads, cheeses, etc.

If you're unsure about what falls into which category, take a look at the candida diet guidelines.

When you describe the feeling in your lower right side, it's hard to say exactly what is the source of the sensation. It could be something in your upper intestine. Does that sound like where it is located?

You may have a type of parasite (there are so many different possibilities from microscopic to actual worms) or you could simply have some old fecal matter lodged in your colon and trying to work itself loose.

Either way, that would explain the diarrhea. Usually, diarrhea is a sign of your body trying to eliminate something that doesn't belong.

My best suggestion for you apart from the recommended dietary changes would be to treat yourself to a thorough 3 month colon cleanse using Herbal Fiberblend powder.

Herbal Fiberblend is a combination of psyllium fiber and 17 herbs that sweep through the entire digestive tract, helping to eliminate parasites, candida fungus, and old fecal
matter that is encrusted along the colon wall.

You can also include Para 90 if you feel it is necessary, but there's a good chance you may be able to deal with any parasites simply using the HFB. (That's my #1 recommendation when someone asks me, "Do I have parasites.")

You should also begin taking a good quality probiotic. I recommend Florafood. This will increase the good bacteria in your digestive tract and help to get the Candida albicans back under control. It's a real boost to your immune system.

(Note - take the Florafood at least 1 hour away from the Herbal Fiberblend, so you don't just wash it right out of your system.) :-)

For the soreness and itching on the anal area, you may want to try applying some organic plain yogurt (no sugar) to the area. It will be an unusual sensation, but it will probably feel soothing (though messy) and should help it heal quicker.

Finally, something you may not have considered is hormone imbalance. It may seem very strange to consider hormones as contributing to your symptoms, but you'd be amazed at how many problems result from low progesterone levels! Difficulty losing weight is just one of them.

You mentioned that you were 52 which sent up a red flag for me. I would highly recommend that you consider using a natural progesterone cream like Renewed Balance. That's the brand I and the ladies in my family use. It's the best I've found so far.

I assume you are either in menopause or post menopause. That would mean you should use 1/4 tsp. of the cream per day for 3 weeks and then take a 1 week break.

You simply rub the natural progesterone cream into one of the thin skinned areas on your body. I favor my upper inner arms and breasts for the best locations. Rotate daily so you get the best possible absorption.

Almost every woman I know who has tried the cream was extremely pleased with the results. There are so many additional long term benefits to be had, too. Good progesterone levels help increase your bone density as you age and also reduce your chances of breast cancer, endometrial cancer, etc.

One pot of the Renewed Balance lasts a few months, so it is well worth the price.

I sincerely hope this information helps you whether the answer to your question, "Do I have parasites?" is yes or no.

The supplements I've recommended will have no negative side effects, so they are definitely worth trying. You can purchase them at wholesale prices in the US as an added benefit.

Please let me know if I can help you further.
To your good health!

Don't Wait Another 5 Minutes, Let Alone 5 Years! NEW

Unfortunately, most doctors know little or nothing about internal parasites, and so many people suffer unnecessarily when they could quite easily be helped. That's one of the main reasons I started this website!

I would give YOU the same advice that I gave to Carol. Please scroll up and read the entire page again.

You have absolutely nothing to lose by trying the suggestions above, and everything to gain. You won't even lose your money if you find my suggestions don't help in your situation because the supplements are money back guaranteed ~ one of the other reasons I love the AIM Company so much. They genuinely want to help people.

Let me know if these supplements help YOU, too!

5 years and counting!!!! NEW
by: Anonymous

5 years ago I started to get an itchy pin prick like feeling all over my body. This has increased to belching and gurgling non stop most of the day and night. I be lucky to get 2-3 hours sleep at night. My hair has become totally greasy as in one would think I never wash it!
There are no marks on my body at all. The itch is everywhere:head, face, eyes, lips, even my anus and penis. My mouth is dry all the time, as if I dont have any spit. Its a living nightmare and to make matters worse I have seen numerous doctors and had nemerous blood tests, all negative!
I have told the doctors I have some sort of parasite inside me causing this, but none of them believe me. Can you please help me? I am 55
