– The devils inside

In addition to detoxifying my body, I had been researching and ingesting substances that cultures around the world have been using for hundreds, if not thousands, of years to combat cancer. Someone handed me a list of kidney, parasite, liver, and colon cleanses from Dr. Hulda Clark from Germany. The list didn’t state that there was an order to the cleanses. I wondered where the hell I was going to get some of the ingredients (gravel root, uva ursi, marshmallow root, black walnut hull made from green walnuts harvested on the full moon!). I decided to try the liver cleanse which consisted of things already in my kitchen… Epsom salts, grapefruit juice, and olive oil.

I followed directions but did not get the desired result of green ‘stones’ expelled from my liver. See, you cleanse your colon with the Epsom salts, do the liver cleanse, cleanse your colon again, and what comes out next is from your liver because there is nothing in your system. I got orange paste. I tried again. Orange paste again. I found a hotline for Hulda Clark cleanses and called it.

They said I must not have done the parasite cleanse first. By then, I had found a source for an easy parasite cleanse. It had the three necessary ingredients to kill all stages of most parasites that infest humans…. black walnut hull, clove, and wormwood. It’s important to take all three because you don’t want to just kill the adults then have the eggs and adolescents survive to reinfest you.

Two pills, 3x a day for two weeks. My son and I were travelling together in Chile. It was one of the rare times when I could monitor what went into his mouth 24/7, so he did it as well. His mood and powers of concentration improved greatly. Natural methods of treating his ADHD always appealed to me.

I did another liver cleanse and still did not get green stones. I did, however, cross into the Twilight Zone. The toilet bowl was full of little transparent leaves! I looked closely (don’t be grossed out, remember that what you are seeing is only from your liver and so it is not ‘poo’ per se) and, the leaves had a seed in the middle of them. I shook my head, completely confused.

I had ordered Dr. Clark’s book before I left. Upon my return, I did my fourth liver cleanse. The next morning, while waiting to see what came out, I started reading it. She launched right into her theory of cancer. Dr. Clark has her skeptics. But I had lost a bit of faith in published research anyway as it can be so often tainted by ego, greed, and outright deception. Since western medicine did not have safe, effective options for me, I had decided that if a credible person told me that something alternative worked for them, I would keep an open mind. I had met people who recommended her methods. So, I read.

What she said fascinated me. Let me paraphrase. She said she had never encountered anyone with cancer that didn’t have sheep liver flukes in their liver and intestines. They don’t normally infest humans as they cannot complete their life cycle in us. They need to complete it in the snail. A snail slimes your lettuce and leaves the eggs behind (one reason you should always wash your veggies, even if organic or from your own garden). If a person has leaky gut syndrome, the eggs can escape into the blood stream and travel to the liver. If one has a compromised liver, its immune functions are suppressed and they can set up shop and progress to the next stage. Then, egg bodies leave the liver in search of benign growths where immune functions are suppressed (cysts, warts, etc.) and set up for the next phase… reproduction. In order to reproduce, these egg bodies emit a chemical growth factor which, according to Dr. Clark, initiates mitotic cell division which the surrounding human tissue imitates and voila! Cancer… uncontrolled cell division.

Now bear with me, I am not saying that Dr. Clark’s theory of cancer is right. It needs to be tested under scientifically acceptable circumstances. But just listen to my story for a while longer… I wondered what these flukes looked like. I turned the page and there was what had come out of my intestines by the hundreds, after my last liver cleanse, after the parasite cleanse! Shaped like a leaf, there was a dark, nuclear body in the center. You can call her a quack all you want, but I had cancer popping up all over and I clearly had had liver flukes so there’s something to her theory. A recent study showed that many Vietnam vets suffering from cancer are also suffering from an infestation of liver flukes they contracted during the war. Additionally, Artemesia, or wormwood, is a known anti-cancer agent. Food for thought,

The Epsom salts were doing their job and I ran to the toilet to see what came out of my liver now that the parasites were gone. Dozens of large, green stones! I chose two of the largest, most beautiful ones and put them in a jewelry box. I took them to a dinner party and exhibited the new “emeralds I had purchased in Chile.” Before I could stop her, my friend grabbed them and held them to her ear, exclaiming that they would make beautiful earrings! I explained that they had come out of my intestinal system (granted, a clean intestinal system) so she may not wish to do that. She had no problem returning them.

Some claim that these ‘stones’ are gallstones and contain toxins so it is a powerful way to detox as well as prevent gallstone surgery. Naysayers cry bull and say it is just olive oil. In fact, my ‘stones’ disintegrated into powder and a greasy stain after months. (So much for earrings.) But let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water here. The way the liver cleanse works is that the fast and the Epsom salts clean out your intestinal system. The olive oil is a fat, thus processed by your liver and goes straight there. The citrus of the grapefruit acts on the liver like a hand squeezing water from a sponge. So, the liver engorges with fat, which then gets squished out through the bile ducts, reaming them (taking toxins with them), and forming little green balls of compressed olive oil.

But that’s good, I reasoned. The reason my first two liver cleanses had delivered orange paste was that my bile ducts had been full of parasites. My liver couldn’t properly deal with the olive oil mixture and was trying to squish out through bile ducts that were clogged with vile little parasites that were clinging on like leeches. Ewwww! Now that the little suckers were gone, my bile ducts were clear and my liver was able to process the fats correctly.

Are these cleanses good for you or not? After seeing those flukes? Damn straight I’m glad they are out of me. Whether they caused my cancer or not, I don’t want them in me. We are all infested with more parasites than we care to imagine. What other health problems could they have been causing? Parasites by definition sap your energy… energy that you could be using for healing. It also seems to me that reaming toxins out of bile ducts so that the liver functions properly would be a good thing. We change the bag on our vacuum cleaners when they get full to keep it working properly, don’t we? Clean out the hoses? A well-functioning liver is vital to our overall health and certainly when healing.

So how does one get leaky gut syndrome? This is a condition that is difficult to find information on in western medicine but is talked about a lot in naturopathic medicine. Many things can cause it and many conditions are linked to it… from autism to arthritis. Basically, the theory is that toxins and pathogens such as allergens (e.g., gluten), vaccinations and Candida overgrowth, can damage the microbiome and cause the intestinal lining to become permeable to large molecules allowing toxins, pathogens and nutrients to leak directly into the blood stream through a path they are not intended to pass.

In my case, I had done an intestinal cleanse a couple years earlier and had drastic results. I doubled over from intense stomach cramps. I felt so gassy that if you pricked me with a pin I would fly around the room like a balloon. It was so severe that I was completely incapacitated. Luckily, I had some antacids and it calmed enough for me to call the cleanse hotline. They told me that I must have had a massive Candida overgrowth and that the cleanse was killing it. As the yeast was dying, it was off-gassing. I was told to expect black tar in my stool and if that were so, it would be evidence of the amount of Candida that had been lining my intestine for years. When I saw the black tar that did come out, I was glad that I had done the cleanse, in spite of the pain I endured.

My current regimen to maintain my health (and, hopefully, my NED status) includes cleansing twice a year, in the spring and in the fall. I do a parasite cleanse concurrent with a Candida cleanse, and then I follow it with a liver cleanse and a week of coffee enemas.

It is recommended that you cleanse your kidney first, or at least support it as many of the toxins you are releasing will go to your kidney for processing so you want it be be functioning well. I use a product called Michael’s Kidney Factors, available at your health for store. Check the web for reviews. The reviews I’ve seen are good and my body seems to like it.

The product I use for parasite cleansing is probably available at your health food store and is available on-line Kroeger Herb – Wormwood Combination. It has all three of the herbs you need… wormwood (artemisia), clove, and black walnut hull. Two pills, three times a day for about two weeks. Use the leftovers to give your pets because if you don’t de-parasitize them, you’ll probably get them back.

If you’d like to Candida cleanse at the same time, give up all sugar and high-glycemic-index products (this means no alcohol or pasta or bread, etc.) during this time and drink Pau d’Arco tea (kills Candida) and aloe vera juice (heals intestinal lining) daily. Follow with the liver cleanse.

Please do not try the liver cleanse based on the information I have provided thus far. It can be dangerous if not done properly. Please see my post on Organ Cleanses.

Important Note: Research has found that wormwood (artemisia) has very strong anti-cancer properties (New Study Suggests That Chemotherapy Could Be Spreading Cancer). A recent study has also found that Vietnam vets are contracting cancer from liver flukes (VA study shows parasite from Vietnam may be killing vets). Perhaps my experience as well as this research implies that Dr. Hulda Clark was onto something.
