QUESTION: I would first like to say that I really have enjoy reading your informative website. I have gotten many useful tips from your various topics discussed. I have a very specific question in regards to how to get rid of whipworms parasite present in humans. I've read that the traditional herb tonic wormwood is supposedly harmful to the human body. I'm seeking your professional advice on what herbal formula or herb combinations would be best to cure this issue and also fight the secondary effects of fungal infection. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance.

ANSWER: My first suggestion is to do a 48 hour fast drinking decoctions of Dandelion root tea and adding 15 drops extract of cloves and 10 drops extract of the green hull of Black walnut. If you have problems finding the extracts I suggest you visit: https://www.goldenlotusherbs.com/

Other herbs that may prove useful are: Wormwood, Garlic, Turmeric and eating Papaya seeds. Wormwood may be harmful if not used under the supervision of a professional.  I would also suggest drinking fresh Pineapple juice 2xs daily, and eating Papaya seeds as a snack frequently.  To fight secondary infections I would suggest tonifying the immune by eating fresh garlic and onions daily, and adding an Astragalus root to all your broths, soups and stews. In the alternative add 25 drops of the extract of Astragalus to any drink, it is tasteless and odorless.

: I have a problem  that is so embarrassing to me.. it is anal itch.  I had my Dr look and he said I have a tiny hemorrhoid.. but all of a sudden I start to itch and it fills almost like I have worms.. I cannot help myself anyway.. soon I usually go to the bathroom and sometimes it burns so bad like pure acid is coming from my body.. I don't know who to ask for help so that is why I am writing to you.  Do you think I could have parasites or worse colon cancer?  What in the world is going on in my body.. I pass no blood . Thank you for any help..

ANSWER: Your condition sounds very much like parasites and poor digestion.  The first thing I would recommend is a full body cleanse targeting parasites.  I have attached the cleanse information.  We have a parasite formula, "Paris Sights" which is very good.  However, it is in bulk but you could make your own tincture with it by soaking it for 3 weeks in Apple Cider Vinegar or if you don't like vinegar, you could soak it in brandy.  After 3 weeks, strain it through a sieve or cloth and bottle it in a clean jar.  Depending on how strong you make it, 1 to 2 tsps at bedtime should be adequate.  Or simply dampen a 1/2 cup and mix it with honey and roll it into little balls.  Or you could encapsulate them yourself and take 2 or 3 at bedtime.  Herbs are more forgiving than pharmaceuticals and much easier on the body while being effective so you don't have to feel nervous about learning how to help yourself.   It is likely you also have an infestation of candida in your system, so the veggie route is the way to go to heal yourself.   Lots of raw, fresh vegetables and fresh vegetable juice is wonderful for cleansing and improving the body and helping it regulate it's functions.  Eating raw garlic is very good for parasite elimination.  You could put a clove or two through the juicer along with the vegetables, (carrots are the favorite) and whatever fresh herbs you can find; parsley, cilantro, garden sage, celery, spinach, etc.  You would be amazed at how good you will feel after a week or two.   Even if all you do is add lots of raw, fresh vegetables to your diet, you'll  feel much better and the vegetable juice I have outlined will go a long way toward eliminating your condition.
