In a Way, Thyme.. It solved the first type of parasite first, but not hookworm with the itching for years more. While it has some use, it's not for all use..
Lifetree, Horrible. Didn't work.
Same for Paraban
Selzin Blue Junk for Parasites
Clove This Livestrong Site (Click Here or see link below) says cloves at high doses used to stop parasites can cause severe toxiocity including liver and kidney damage.
Oregano Oil Livestrong Says Here (or see below) that Oil Of Oregano cause severe toxicity to liver, kidneys and nervous system.
Mebendazole.. 80$ and it worked for a bit, like three days, then the itching resumed. It's for one time use only, or the parasite gets resistance. It was quite uncomfortable, not a problem either for thyme or GSE.
Parentel Pamoate..Worthless and what power it had might be used in making the parasite more resistant, one time only, didn't work.
Fennel, Slippery Elm, Black Walnut.. These are some of the ingredients you see in formulas like Swanson Paraban. While I'm a major fan of Swanson Health for 1000 years alive yet, they are sometimes "wrong" about value. These herbs can cause hormone damage, all three influence hormones in random ways. Apparently word got around that black walnut and cloves (liver and kidney damage with cloves, hormone damage with walnut) and these other herbs are viable (not for some parasites they certainly aren't) by way of the "research" of Hulda Clark. Wormwood (which causes nerve damage unlike thyme which is useful for the valuable but limited use it has, even so both are addictive) fennel and black walnut are all in the Paraban formula, and somehow Hulda Clark got the idea they helped much with parasites. Hulda Clark was an alt health practitioner who apparently was promoting alternative health cures for cancer, and then she died eventually of cancer. While this isn't a disproof of all of Hulda Clark's ideas since doctors in conventional medicine kill 50% of people with cancer by the treatment, I know personally that Paraban doesn't work and it causes harm. GSE and short term /low dose thyme have worked wonders for me. Remember, You Won't Have to Try Any of These if GSE and Thyme are of worth for you as They Were For Me..
Zinc.. Not recommended for long term use by professionals. Cheap but I couldn't well tolerate a formula like zinc gluconate. So I started with pumpkin seed oil, which has zinc, comfort in reach yet far from being a "super antiparasitic, quite effective" against parasites, sure, it mildly reduced the itching. While zinc "Hugely Reduces Angina", and it's of real worth for prostatitis, it wasn't of much worth at any rate about the parasites.
Mitactin..8$ from Walmart, called "AllStop", while good for eczema, I'd call it Some Stop! Claims to cleanse out skin deep down for eczema and it uses safer anionic surfactants which are safe at any rate it seems.
Garlic...Like Diatomaceous Earth, garlic has many values for general good health. For me it had not much influence influence on parasites, other than the garlic burp. And as a flavor it's not my favorite for long term use that is of not much worth for parasites once you have them. It builds up general power against the parasites but it wasn't nearly powerful enough to finish it off. The severe itching continued till the time of GSE.
Diatomaceous Earth.. For small doses only, and for me it was nowhere near as good as GSE and thyme as used above. However Diatomaceous Earth has had a long and safe record of value as in agriculture, and has many uses for health including as an insecticide, see my post below for why and how to use DE for an insecticide around the house for safety and value. I have no ants, dust mites or spiders, without huge constant washing. While DE and Dawn/baking soda to remove dander around the house is almost as easy as putting just a bit of DE around the door is an easy way to remove almost all insects 100%, for use internally its not as simple because it also absorbs out prescriptions or OTC's in a way like bentonite clay. While I've found the absorption by clay or DE tolerable and mild, use with caution, and not at all if you have lifesaving prescriptions.
Carrots.. While foods in general like alkalizing foods increase defense against parasites by e.g. boosting immunity, they seemed to have little direct influence on my problem even after months or years.
Coconut Oil... Same as above.
Pineapple/Bromelain Most eat pineapple all the time, and most have parasites...
Papaya/papayian (enzyme) Web Md says it's not for use externally or internally! What does this leave? It causes severe throat or stomach damage when taken internally and is not for contact with the skin. Click Here or see link below for the WebMd cautions site, or faster yet, I've taken GSE and saved you on R and D.
Shampoo.. A way to poison skin, this is how the skin might be damaged, allowing in the parasites most have. It really inflames the hookworm when I tried first to damage it and I first realized it was a parasite ages ago before I found the Dawn/Baking soda method as a safer cheap body wash, the problem is removed with GSE and thyme. For a safe cheap shampoo I also use Dawn dishwashing liquid (anionic surfactants) perhaps with a bit of baking soda to much boost the antidander power for hairwash. To finish with Dawn after I wash each AM I use vinegar, makes a valuable rinse for the "shampoo" wash.
