Do I Have Round Worms?
Do I Have Round Worms From Eating A Contaminated Candy Bar?
I worked at an animal hospital for years and in September of 08' I dropped a almond joy in the sink we use for fecal exams.
I picked it up and the part of the chocolate that touched the sink stayed and stuck to the sink, so i ate the rest anyways.
About 10-14 days later I had terrible cramps and diarrhea. I have been abnormally gassy and have mucousy bm's since. I am concerned I contracted something!
Please help if you have any info.
It is hard to say specifically what kind of parasite you may have picked up, whether round worms or something else.
Obviously, you've picked up something. It may or may not have been from the runaway Almond Joy. That may be merely coincidence.
The fact that you are having digestive problems is usually a sign that something isn't right in the intestines.
The best advice I can give you is to get yourself a couple of pots of Herbal Fiberblend
and give yourself a good colon cleanse.
HFB is full of anti-fungal and anti-parasitic herbs mixed with the psyllium powder. If you do have round worms or another parasite, the HFB should do the trick. It's easy to take, though not pleasant tasting, and it certainly won't do you any harm.
Just mix a tsp. in water or juice morning and evening. You can then work your way up to 1 Tbs. twice a day for a full cleanse. For the best results you should do this for 3 months (which would be about 3 pots of the HFB).
As someone who works at an animal hospital (or even a human hospital for that matter) :) it would be wise to make HFB an everyday part of your routine even after your initial cleanse.
Using a teaspoon per day will help keep your colon free of bacteria that you are exposed to throughout the day.
I use HFB as an annual cleanse myself just to get rid of anything I may have picked up throughout the year. It really helps to keep your digestive tract healthy and able to absorb nutrients much more effectively.
Hope you feel well again soon!To your good health!
