Finding out if you are infected is not difficult or expensive. I have no experience with medical lab testing for paras but I have read that there are few of them that will test for this and that their results are undependable.
It is not my intention to favor any herbal or supplement supplier over another. In this website, I will name certain brands only because I have found them to be of good quality and to work.
A good kit for testing is Blessed Herbs’ Para Cleansing Kit — the 12 day program. There’s less expensive brands of herbal cleanses, but I know that this one works well, comes with lots of info, and includes a packaged plan that will give you a definitive yes or no treatment that you can trust. The included Toxin Absorber is excellent. It’s tasty and gives a nice energy boost but it will cause some dehydration, so I suggest that you try that in half the recommended dosage before doing the full dosage. This kit also kills paras that can infect your liver and many of your other organs but it’s not likely to give you a definite yes or no to any but intestinal. You can find this kit at their website www.blessedherbs.com.
Be sure to get their 12 day program kit which includes 2 bottles of liquid tincture, 2 bottles of capsules, and instructions.
Beginning on the sixth day of this program, start closely checking what comes out using a flashlight and eyeglasses. If you have an infestation, the first thing to die off will be the smallest of the larvae which will be off-white-colored specks — or less likely, corn-kernel-colored, dark reddish, brown, or blackish specks. If you find something that is approaching the size of, or as big as a sesame seed or a Quaker oat, then the infestation is getting towards advanced stage, if not already there. Most species of larvae will grow to about the size of pumpkin seeds or possibly as big as corn kernels, but this single kit will not kill such an advanced-size larvae.
This single kit will only kill a very early-stage infestation and is more of an indicator than a final cure. It’s important that you inspect and monitor what comes out until five days after you complete the program keeping track of the size and quantity of larvae for each day. If you are getting specks at the end of the program, then you surely have bigger, yet-to-be-killed larvae and possibly also adults which come in a whole different form and take more treatment to kill.
So you have completed the 12 day program. For those of you that found nothing, you should do this cleanse once a year whether you have symptoms or not. For those of you that found something, if you were getting specks or something bigger at the end of the two-week treatment, then you surely have bigger, more mature larvae, and also, possibly, adults which come in a whole different form.
I know … not very encouraging. Did you see anything as big a Quaker oat?
Paras always come with other gut problems such as low probiotics, candida infection, and biofilm colonies of pathogens — all of which lead to gut problems that doctors name as diseases, but which are actually symptoms of diseases. I’m not expert enough to explain the how and why of it, but intestinal paras always live in symbiotic relationships with these other bad guys. So before moving ahead with killing off more para, you need to do some Gastro Housekeeping. Without this, the kill-off will be harsher than it needs to be. I’ll explain why this in on the next page. So go to the next page, (3 Gastro Housekeeping).
