Post Cleanse, What I Did Next........Colonics Might Help I Thought?
I was beyond disappointment with the results of the parasite cleanse that I had just completed, although I was not surprised. I have to say, throughout the cleanse I never passed anything that remotely resembled a worm. I checked after every bowel movement, looking for anything that resembled a worm, not a very nice thing to do, but it had to be done. But be very cautious and careful when doing this, wear gloves. Prodding about, even in your own poo, is extremely hazardous.
I tried to think positive that perhaps the cleanse had killed something. I knew I had a chronic infection of some kind, I just didn’t know exactly what. I clung on to this hope. I’d read countless times that numerous cleanses may be needed to get “clean". Also, ‘herbs are like drugs’, they can only do so much.
I hadn’t given up on trying things out for myself but I thought that colonics may help along the way. I was having trouble toileting/emptying my bowel and thought this would help. Anyway, I made an appointment with a colonic practitioner. I was so nervous beforehand. I wasn’t nervous about speaking to someone new about my problems, I felt it didn’t matter, they didn’t know me, I was just nervous of the procedure. The thought of something being stuck up my backside (please do excuse me, but I couldn’t put it any other way) horrified me but I thought back to the colonoscopy I’d had and thought it couldn’t be any worse than that! Before the procedure I had to give a brief history, symptoms etc. I’d seen so many practitioners over the years everything just rolled off my tongue. She was a bit taken aback my my list of symptoms, I could tell. Parasites were mentioned (hoorah I thought), also candida but that was about it.
I’m not going to say much about the procedure, I’ll leave that to your imagination. Throughout the procedure the practitioner did talk to me and she kept looking at the tube where the “gunk” passes through. There is a ‘view’ window in the tube where the practitioner can see what’s coming out. I told her I didn’t really want to know as I had a mental picture in my head and that that was bad enough. She did say she viewed a parasite “that had legs". That was HER words exactly. I felt like vomitting there and then! It sent shivers down my spine. I had to try and blank out what she’d said. I remember driving home and envisaging this ‘parasite with legs’, I couldn’t get the mental picture of what this ‘thing’ looked like out of my head, it was ugly. It took me a while to get over that. She didn’t view anything large, as in worms, passing, but then again, worms can be tiny. I do remember her saying that she didn’t think I had candida. Oh, that was a relief, I chuckled to myself!
She had a chat with me after the procedure and recommended that I take some herbs over a period of time. She recommended I take a colon cleanse - it was called “intesti-cleanse". Black Seed Plus was also recommended, to help improve my digestion, support my breathing and help strengthen my immunity. I also took Eden Extract. I also took OregaPlus, cleansing for fungus and yeasts, bacterial and parasitic infections. It was quite costly over a period of time but I was getting used to it! The OregaPlus alone cost me £42 sterling a TINY bottle (taken in liquid drops). The intesti-cleanse was £31 (again, tiny bottle, taken in liquid drops). The others were in capsule form, containing about 60 capsules in total and they were around £20 each. Each order was for well over £100. I was ordering this about once a month whilst I was seeing this practitioner and that didn’t include her fee!
She recommended that I’d probably need to be on these for about 4 months going by my symptoms. I had an appointment once a fortnight for the colonics whilst taking the herbs. She would ask me each time how I was etc., with regards to the symptoms. With the colonics I usually felt good for 2-3 days but I still had the symptoms. I told her they were more manageable and that I could just about tolerate them. I just couldn’t understand why I still had this awful mucus/slime. Why? I always asked myself this. I’ve had it for so long now, 5 years and I NEVER get used to it. :no: Some days it’s awful. Even after 2 months of taking the products, I was still having flare-ups and didn’t feel much better. I just didn’t understand why, with the colonics and the products she had recommended, why wasn’t I feeling any better? I was toileting better, but that was about it.
I have to say, in all of the practitioners I’ve seen, and this is my opinion, not one of them had a clear understanding of what I was going through. I remember saying to the kinesiology practitioner, unless you actually experience what a person is going through, you’ll never really know what it’s like. I used to get fed up with the “I know, it can’t be easy", it used to annoy the hell out of me. Here I am paying out all this money and I’m not making any progress. I remember him saying to me ‘you must look after yourself’! I couldn’t believe my ears. I thought, what am I paying you for. I was under his care as far as I was concerned, paying for his services, he was the one prescribing, yet I had to look after myself. I didn’t need to be told this. I was doing everything in my power to try and regain my health. I just needed help and direction. I did everything I could to ‘look after myself’. It wasn’t my fault I was ill and I wasn’t blaming or lashing out at him, I was just angry at his choice of words.
By now, I’d been on the products for 4 months and my symptoms hadn’t got any better, not in the slightest. I was still having extreme dizzy spells, mucus/slime, blurry vision, feeling confused, heart pain, wriggling sensations and so on, (the list of symptoms are in my 2nd blog). I felt I’d given the colonics a right good try and I felt I’d been on the products long enough as she had recommended 4 months and it had made no difference. I remember saying to her why have I still got the symptoms? She said it can’t be the parasites, we’ve treated them. I was confused all the same. But my symptoms are exactly the same from when I first attended. Why back then did she say she thought they were parasite related and now they weren’t? I just wanted to cry there and then. :’( She finished by saying she knew of a good alternative practitioner who could help me and that she could put me in touch with her. I couldn’t believe my ears. Another practitioner. I felt I was on a roundabout and couldn’t get off. An alternative practitioner…. in what, I thought? Someone else to charge me £50 an hour and to prescribe more herbs. I just wasn’t sure. I was given her card etc., if and when I wanted to make contact.
With all the different herbs, month after month, I wasn’t sure if it was doing more harm than good. The longest I’d been on something was a month so to be on several products for 4 months worried me. I didn’t know about parasite resistance back then but I did wonder about it. I believe it can and does happen. That thought scared me.
I truly believe now, looking back and, with hindsight (!), that the practitioners I saw didn’t have a full understanding of what was wrong with me. Like my own doctor, they recognised certain symptoms or confused them with other ailments. If one is to get well, the whole, wider picture needs to be looked at and this IS where the mistakes were made. In my opinion, and I’m not blowing my own trumpet here, I could actually tell some of the practitioners a thing or two with regards to parasites etc. Some of the things I mentioned when I was seeing them they just gave me a blank, vague look and I knew they didn’t know what I was talking about. It’s a subject that, for many out there, is very misunderstood.
So, nearly another six months down the line and still no change in my health. :(
