“How Parasite Cleansing Changed My Life” – Kate’s Story

  • Published on: 13 June, 2015

Introduction

Before I jump into Kate’s story below, I’d like to give you a little background info.

You see, a few years ago, I was very ill and looking for answers at a time when all doctors could give me was pharmaceutical medication that made my problems worse. I began to research alternative healers and picked up a book called The Cure For All Diseases by Hulda Clark. You can actually read the entire book for free here. At first, the idea of parasites shocked me. This is a first world country after all; I thought that a “parasite” was one single worm that you picked up while away on vacation (although I had never even been out of the country at the time).

However, the more I read, the more things made sense. In her book, Dr. Hulda Clark explains that we are living in a time where chemicals and pollutants are more prevalent than ever – even more so since her books have been published. We let these poisons into our bodies every day due to the cheap and often dangerous ingredients that make up our cleaning products, food, and many other seemingly benign everyday items. Examples of these poisons include heavy metals, benzene, pesticides, formaldehyde, methanol, etc. These toxins can be hiding anywhere – for instance, aspartame is 11% methanol by weight. Up until 200 years ago, methanol was an extremely rare component of the human diet, although it is now widely prevalent in our food due to canned food, commercial juice, and so much more.

Hulda Clark explains that parasites are all around us. They are a part of life, and it is inevitable that you will come into contact with their eggs. However, now we have the pollutants mentioned above in the mix, and the parasites are able to proliferate in/feed off of unhealthy tissues and get into areas of the body where they should never be. The body is so busy fighting and detoxing pollutants that it has no energy to do its normal work of killing and sweeping out parasitic invaders. On top of that, so many Americans don’t have our very first defense: stomach acid! The hydrochloric acid in our stomach has been given to us as a gift that naturally kills bacteria, parasite eggs, and anything else you may ingest. You can read my article here about the true cause of heartburn and acid reflux: low stomach acid. Americans spend more than $7 billion per year on acid suppressing drugs and another $4 billion on OTC antacids such as Tums, because we’re told that too much stomach acid is the cause of acid indigestion, acid reflux, and heartburn.

In reality, the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) separates the esophagus and the stomach. Proper stomach acid levels signal the LES to close tightly, so that food digestion can take place. However, low stomach acid levels don’t give off the closing signal, and cause the sphincter to loosen. Once loose, acidic stomach fluid comes back up into the lower part of the esophagus causing a burning sensation. This is why a large meal will give you heartburn. There’s not enough acid in your stomach to saturate the heavy meal, so the LES doesn’t close.

Without the body’s first defense of stomach acid, we are letting tons of invaders into our body that would normally be incinerated. On top of that, we’re eating food that cannot be digested and is deficient in enzymes (overcooked, fried food). Then, when the LES won’t close and we feel acid coming back up, we run to the store and drink Alkaseltzer to add insult to injury. That’s how they keep you buying the product and that’s why we continue to get worse. And of course, those pollutants bombard our detoxification organ, and fighting parasites takes a backseat to fighting toxicity.

Hulda Clark’s book explained that you can heal dis-ease by 1) killing the parasites with an herbal protocol and bio-electrification methods (read how to build her syncrometer that can zap parasites on page 19) and 2) removing the pollutants that were stressing out the body in the first place! (YES, this means you must change your diet! There is no reason to parasite cleanse if you are going to pollute your body once again.)

Once I read all of this, I decided to do a parasite cleanse using Hulda Clark’s 3 major parasite-killing ingredients and let me tell you…. it changed my life. Once I mustered up the courage to talk about my experience with the public, I wrote a blog about it, and the response was incredible. I shared how after 3 consecutive cleanses (3 months in a row with 2 week breaks) and enemas to help remove toxins from my bowels and liver, I was able to get my cystic back acne under control. The acne on my face that I could never quite tackle with other herbs or diet changes faded away as I passed more and more parasites. I got some really large worms out, along with a ton of bright orange liver flukes. I felt incredible and energized as the brain fog was lifted – like I had found the missing piece of my health puzzle! I had already been using several herbs to regain the health of my liver (such as Flor Essence, which was a life-saving tea given to me by an herbalist when I was at my lowest point), but parasite cleansing herbs really sealed the deal.

11335129_868636626540732_1176493057_nIt’s been 1 year and 6 months since I finally mustered up the courage to talk about my love for parasite cleansing, and it has somehow blossomed into a major part of my life’s purpose. People were so excited to try a cleanse, but the tincture method I talked about in my original post tasted terrible and the bentonite clay/fiber drink that I used to clean my colon during the process was somewhat constipating. Because of this, I actually teamed up with my Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner to create our very own parasite cleanse using the best methods we had tried. She always incorporates parasite cleansing into treating her patients with excellent results.

The video above is all about my story. I filmed it for our IndieGogo campaign, where we are taking pre-orders for our very own parasite cleanse and a few other herbal remedies we’ve come up with.

Kate’s Story

The following story is from a lovely lady named Kate Law who found me on Instagram.

Hi Olivia!

Here is my parasite story:

I had quite a number of health problems in my life. I had thyroid nodules, and had half my thyroid removed at 22. I also was diagnosed with gallstones and told I need my gallbladder out ASAP when I was 32. I had constant vaginal bleeding, during sex, after sex, in between periods and with bowel movements. I had every test performed at the doctor only to hear from every one of them there was nothing wrong with me, and they would give me some antidepressants because that might help…even though I told them I wasn’t depressed.

My digestion was bad, and I had awful gas and bloating. My hormones were not kind, I broke out regularly, and was emotionally volatile.  My daughters and I would get sick at least once a month – fevers, coughing, stuffy noses, etc.

I read everything possible about how the human body works, because mine was malfunctioning so horribly and I didn’t feel like my doctors were helping me at all. I changed my diet and went organic vegan, which helped me feel better immediately. I then did a lot of gallbladder/liver flushes (apple juice for 6 days, epsom salts, olive oil and grapefruit juice) for a total of 10, and was no longer experiencing gallbladder attacks. I thought I should be experiencing optimal health, but I was still having issues with gas and bloating. I wondered why it was so bad if I was only putting pure, whole organic foods into my body?

That’s about the time I found Organic Olivia’s website and Instagram, read about the parasite cleansing she was so enthusiastic about, did some research on my own, and decided to try it.  I bought two bottles of the tincture she used in the first post she ever wrote about cleansing. I went heavy on the dosing at first, and within 24 hours passed a giant worm when I went to the bathroom. The worms didn’t stop! I began passing ones longer than my arm, and also began experiencing pretty bad detox symptoms; the headaches bothered me the most. At that point I began doing enemas regularly (water, coffee, & probiotic) to get the dead bugs out of my intestines faster, and it helped immensely. (NOTE FROM OLIVIA: Although the parasite cleanse I’ve created does not contain an enema, many people are highly successful when they include an enema in their protocol. It depends on personal preference, but I always like to use them so that no dead bugs are lying around for bacteria to feed off of.)

The bugs were squirming in every orifice in my body as they were dying. I felt flutters in my intestines; it felt like being 4 months pregnant, when you first feel the flutter of the baby kick. But I wasn’t pregnant at all! I felt and heard them flapping within my sinus cavity/eardrum.

I took the week break as recommended, and then immediately started a second round of a two week cleanse. I passed more and more worms. When I got my period that month, I passed worms & other creepers out of my lady parts.

After the first cleanse, I immediately felt amazing.  My stomach, which had been so bloated, was FLAT AS A BOARD! I no longer had awful gas, break outs, or the constant vaginal bleeding/awful cramps. I have had no problems with any of these things since my first parasite cleanse.

I now do them every 6 months or so, and I have made my daughters do them as well.  You wouldn’t think a 4 year old would have worms as long as my arm living in her intestines, but she absolutely did.  The pediatricians are clueless – they look at me like I’m nuts, and offer me the latest vaccine for my daughter.

We are pretty regular people. We don’t travel out of the country, we don’t eat sushi, we don’t go swimming in questionable bodies of water, we don’t drink water from a creek or eat out of trash cans, and yet we had worms. If we had them, everyone has them, without a doubt in my mind. They are a part of life, and they are normal.  This planet is full of life! Tiny organisms thrive in harsh environments all over the planet. Obviously they enjoy your warm body as a nice cozy home. These organisms exist, and there is no reason to be afraid of them, because there is an easy way to get them out.

I think I got the great majority out on the first cleanse, as there were some, but not a lot, during the subsequent flushes. I’m stoked to try the formula that Olivia has created, and I thoroughly recommend parasite cleansing to every mammal on the planet. It’s easy and effective.

NO DOCTOR EVER TOLD ME I HAD PARASITES, OR THAT MY SYMPTOMS WERE INDICATIVE OF A PARASITE INFESTATION. I’ve had sonograms, x-rays, all kinds of tests — and no one had a clue. Yet all of my health problems immediately improved when the bugs were gone.

Do some sort of bowel cleansing while killing the bugs. It helps detox symptoms, and works to flush them out of your intestines sooner. I used enemas, but anything will do, as long as you are pooping frequently. My oldest daughter lets me give her enemas, but not the youngest. For the youngest, I tripled her up on probiotics and the chocolate bars with gentle laxatives you can get from the drug store. They are very effective. (NOTE FROM OLIVIA: The parasite cleanse that I make is for adults, not children. This is an account of Kate’s experience. The only product I’ve found that’s gentle and suitable for children 3+ is WormOut on Amazon.)

Do your parasite cleanses, keep your liver and kidneys clean, and you will LIVE. Not just exist feeling crappy all the time.  I don’t want to live to be 100, I just want to enjoy the life I have now.

I’m also in functional medicine now, and I help people go from extremely sick to thriving. Since I’m working with nutritionists, my diet is no longer vegan, but more of a paleo-type diet. Fresh organic veggies, fruits & free-range proteins. Whole, clean foods are the most important foods you can eat. They are nutrient dense, and deliver the micro-nutrients that give you that God-like body!

My family is healthy and happy, and we have you Olivia to thank for this!  You saved our lives, LITERALLY. We love you and are grateful for your sharing of knowledge with all humans. God did right when he made you, keep working, you are making a difference.

With love,
Kate, Kylie & Lily.

Hello, I am following your advice with the P&B shake, supplements, and because yours are backordered I started the Dr. Hulda Cleanse. Since starting dr. hulda clark’s parasite cleanse the past two days have been a bit weird. About two or three hours after eating lunch, which in this case was a sandwich both days, i get a weird “head buzz” somewhere in between dizzy/lightheaded/nausea and an overwhelming need to fall asleep. Upon waking up I have a bowel movement and I feel better, but I dont know if this is normal or why its affecting my body this way. Also, I know you said to do one parasite/colon cleanse during the day and at night but the info on the dr. hulda clark pamphlet says the black walnut/super w blend once a day and then the cloves 3x a day. Any help/feedback would be appreciated!

Hi Olivia! I have a question…Does your parasite cleanse eliminate the H.Pylori bacteria? I believe part of my gut issues are due in part to this bacteria. My goal is to eliminate the bacteria and then eliminate the parasites. Conventional Dr’s will prescribe a strong antibiotic for the bacteria. I have found a natural alternative to eliminating the bacteria and the main ingredient is Mastic Gum. Below is a link to a supplement I’ve found that will treat it. I was going to treat the bacteria first and then the parasites. But if your parasite cleanse will treat the bacteria, no need to do both. I tried searching for H.Pylori on your website and didn’t find much…but maybe I didn’t type the right thing. Anyways, Thanks for your time! http://www.askdrmaxwell.com/shop/stomach-support-formula/

Thanks for sharing such an inspiring story! Olivia, I am on my first parasite cleanse and highly suspect Candida and I have suffered from digestive issues for a long time. I am planning on doing several in a row (maybe 2 or 3) with the recommended breaks in between. But, I also really want to do a liver flush. Where would a liver flush fit in? After all parasite cleanses are done or after the first cleanse or when?! I am a week in and also doing enemas every other night, but everything so far has been so…”easy”. I haven’t had any die off symptoms and the enemas (never done them before this) aren’t uncomfortable and I can retain a lot of liquid (almost 6 cups- never tried more) and though I’m not reaaaally looking, the most I’ve seen are liver flukes. I can maybe attribute this to the fact that I eat a pretty clean diet, have always had at least 2 bowel movements a day and haven’t eaten meat in over 15 years BUT I do definitely suffer from digestion/skin/migraine/hormonal issues so I’m thinking something has to be blocked somewhere and hoping this cleanse and a liver flush will give me some answers (and relief!)! Thanks so much for all your information and education on a very overlooked topic! I have greatly enjoyed watching you evolve on this amazing journey you are on!

Olivia, you’ve probably been getting this question A LOT but I pledged for one of your parasite cleansing kits and I am wondering when you think it will be ready. In the meantime, which parasite cleanse kit would you recommend for me to take right now while I wait for yours to come out?

Hey Olivia…LOVE LOVE LOVE your site!! I recently discovered your blog when I had just began a detox using many of the same herbs you’ve created in your awesome Cleanse Kit. I have recommended yours to some friends since I had already bought my herbs. One question I have is I continue to see parasites come out…and am wondering if I should try a colonic just to be sure I have gotten rid of them all. Or should I just keep herb cleansing? Thanks so much!!

hi olivia, Im in desperate need of help. Can parasite cleanses help to eliminate mrsa? i have mrsa in my armpit and i had it lanced the first time it got huge and painful. The doctor gave me antibiotics (of course), but what they fail to tell me is that mrsa is not cured by antibiotics. So after going through the pain of having my armpit cut open and drained, weeks later (currently) the infection has returned and my armpit is once again swollen with puss and is very painful. After research I found that regular dosage of colloidal silver and manuka honey are effective in curing mrsa, but I wanted to know if doing a parasite cleanse will help to clear my body of this disease? It has really taken a toll on me and im desperate right now to get rid of it. I have a batch of your cleanse that i purchased some time ago, but have not started it due to being busy with summer school. Do you any other recommendations for mrsa?

Hi Olivia i clicked on a link to find out more about your parasite cleansing herbs on your indiegogo campagin. I am wondering if you plan to ship your herbal parasite cleanse pills overseas? I live in Australia. I noticed that you only give a shipping cost to US states. The tinctures sound like a good way to start but the herbal pills are probably preferable. I just want to make sure you can ship overseas before I pre order. Also to give you some feedback I found it difficult to find a way to contact you directly on your Indigogo campaign thus I am writing to you here. Am sure you are very busy setting things up to go ahead but appreciate your time and thanks for the information.

Hi Olivia, like many of your followers, I am inspired by your ability to live out loud and seek your own truths when it comes to health and wellness. Just like you, I found myself in a similar place about three years ago. After an entire childhood of awful eating habits, excess alcohol and experimental drug use in college, I was bedridden and at my own rock bottom. Something was VERY wrong. I was 30 pounds overweight, having extreme digestive issues, white tongue, intense cravings – you name it. I couldn’t stand it any longer and after another sleepless night I got on the internet to find out why I was SO itchy when it was time to go to sleep. It clicked right then and there. (You’re right. Curezone is the most addictive and informative place on the net for all of this info and it is where I learned most of what I know about my own cleansing.) I had an extremely bad pinworm infestation.. possibly thousands. I was scared.  I wanted the help of a doctor. I wanted someone to help me understand WTF was happening and how this was possible. (I did not realize at the time how common this all is and how backwards everything truly is in this country.) After many doors closing in my face, and stool test upon gastro visit all sending me home with no confirmation, I took matters into my own hands. Just like you, I walked into a natural market and asked for help. I was introduced to RenewLife Parasite Cleanse. I’ll never forget the first dose containing black walnut, caprylic acid, pumpkin seed, paramicrodin, YOU NAME IT. I felt my skin crawl and I knew I couldn’t go back. I broke. I went gluten, dairy, sugar, alcohol, soy, and caffeine free for the duration of my cleanse and passed HUNDREDS of worms, flukes, loads of candida, etc. I swallowed raw garlic 3x a day and worked out and meditated and found yoga and acupuncture and ditched my old friends and moved by the beach and pursued a music career and let go of the pain of losing my father so young and learned to nourish my body with food instead of eating my way into this oblivion and to LOVE myself and give so much love out into this world because at the basis of all healing is pure love and good intention.   Olivia, I am writing to you because I can relate. I’ve followed your posts and liked your page for awhile now. But today, three years into my journey, I am not yet entirely healed. I just finished an enema and let me tell ya, it wasn’t pretty. It inspired me to get some balls and tell you what’s up. I lead an entirely different life than the one I was living prior to my “waking up.”  I am currently dating a sweetheart chiropractic doctor whose company specializes in functional medicine. Now I continue to heal and work on my own wellness with the love and support of my man and his closest colleagues. They are all young 30 year old doctors speaking out about vaccines, GMOs, water and air pollution, and all the things girls like you and I need to talk about to feel sane in this absurd world we live in. He is amazing, and I bet Nick and him would get along really nicely. I want to tell you that there are SO many people like us waking up. I want to extend myself as someone to talk to that LOVES to converse about these things, and noting that you and Nick are only in NY makes me feel really connected to you guys. We reside in a little artsy town called Asbury Park. I’m a musician here and it’s a spiritually uplifting scene. Come visit us anytime… There’s so much we could talk about. We’ll get the lamb burgers and all the delicious food and arrangements if we could be blessed with the company of two incredible souls like you both. Contact me anytime jamiecoppamusic@gmail.com – I would love to tell you more about my story and have you share with the docs the IMPORTANCE of parasite cleansing… Seminars? Wellness Festivals? Retreat Centers? We talk big around here. Come dream with us.

I just posted a new blog post & it’s one of those long personal ones like my post after Jamaica on shame & attitudes surrounding sex. This one is called “HOW THE PHYSICAL CAN MIRROR THE EMOTIONAL: MY SCAR STORY” and it veers into lots of emotional/spiritual talk (like mentioning the heart chakra and energetic blockages). If that’s not your thing, skip this one… but if it is, click the link in my bio to read because I felt it was important to share.❤️
🔸
Here’s an excerpt from the post… 👇🏼
🔸
Do you ever think about how emotions can manifest physically in our bodies, whether consciously or subconsciously? Some manifestations are more obvious: stomach “butterflies” when you’re worried or excited, the urge to empty your bladder when you’re scared, or your blood pressure skyrocketing from anger. And yet other manifestations are much more subtle and complex… starving our bodies of nourishment when we hate what we see in the mirror, or abusing a damaging vice (such as drugs) when emotional pain becomes too much to bear.
🔸
When I was 16, I did something very strange to my body. 🔸
I was always the “good girl” - an overachiever who wanted to be PERFECT physically, academically, and any other “ly” I could control. I never wanted tattoos or even a second ear piercing. And yet one day, I woke up and asked someone to pierce my chest — exactly where you see the scar above.
🔸
NONE of my friends could understand why I wanted or did this. I certainly couldn’t figure it out myself. Now 8 years later, it finally makes sense… but we need to go back a bit further first.
🔸
When I was 14, I got into a relationship with an older boy who made me feel extremely special. I thought that feeling was love, but I now understand it was the highs & lows of a game called control. This person hated when I wore certain clothing (even just shorts) to school because “other guys would look at me.” And of course, I was HIS and only his to look at - a bond of ownership that a vulnerable girl with a chaotic home saw as a privilege… READ THE REST OF THE POST @ THE LINK IN MY BIO 👆🏼❤️
SWIPE👉🏼 THANK YOU @FATHEADFRANCES! 😭💘 Forget diamonds… MAGNESIUM is a girl’s best friend. 💎 And yes, I bedazzled my own magnesium kit just for the purpose of this pun. #Dedication ✨ While you’re waiting on the launch of our topical cramp relief salve (which is meant to provide women with a safe self-care tool for immediate relief), give our anti-stress magnesium kit a try to get to the ROOT of the problem. The link is in my bio! 👆🏼
🔸
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, increasing magnesium is one effective way of treating menstrual cramps, as well as other types of menstrual-related pain including headaches and nausea. 🔥
👉🏼 Why? Because magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant! Proper levels are crucial for relaxing both blood vessels AND muscle tension/contractions (including painful menstrual cramping). 👉🏼 Magnesium controls the entry of calcium into each and every cell - this process happens every time a nerve cell fires. Without enough magnesium, too much calcium gets inside the cell resulting in cramping, blood vessel constriction, migraines and anxiety. (Magnesium is required for our muscles to relax, while calcium is needed for contraction).
👉🏼 Red blood cell magnesium is found to be lower in women who have PMS compared to those who don’t. The same was found in headache & migraine sufferers!
👉🏼 On top of all this, magnesium has major benefits for the edema, bloating, depression & mood swings that often accompany menstrual pain. Without going into too much detail, it helps regulate the HPA axis AND decreases something called ‘aldosterone’ which is a major cause of fluid retention.
🔸
✨TO USE MAGNESIUM AS A NATURAL THERAPY FOR CRAMPS: Take 350 mg daily for at least three days leading up to menstruation, continuing through your full cycle. For best results, take 100-300mg daily the rest of the month to replenish stores on a cellular level. ✔️350mg = 1 serving (2 tsp) of our CALM THE MIND magnesium tea, OR
✔️10 sprays of our CALM THE BODY magnesium spray 3x a day. I find it very helpful to spread out these 3 applications morning/noon/night, as a continual intake helps to consistently smooth tense muscle.❤️
😳😳 This is a still frame from the 12:23 mark of my Gua Sha video - all I did was add a black line down the center so you can see the difference between the two sides of my face! 👀The “before” side I didn’t touch with my tools yet, and the “after” side was from the 5-10 minute demo I did scraping in an upward/outwards motion. ✨ It’s like I got a face lift 😂 and my eye looks SO much more open. NO magical creams, just an ancient massage technique that anyone can do at home! That’s what happens when you release the tight fascia and muscles in your face that hold onto so much emotional tension and stress. This is AMAZING for perfectionists and anyone with anxiety who holds tension in their jaw. If you grind your teeth at night, try this right before bed and focus on your neck/jawline area. .
If you haven’t seen my video yet, I embedded it into the new blog post @ the link in my bio. 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼 The blog post contains a written version of everything I said in the video, links to where I got my Gua Sha tools, AND at the end has a whole section dedicated to information about the lymphatic system. ✔️ Why? Because this Gua Sha scraping massage technique is meant to move any stagnant lymphatic fluid in the face that contributes to puffiness, premature aging and blemishes. .
🚨It goes much deeper than beauty, though - did you know that your lymphatic system is twice as big as your circulatory system? (It has a whole network of lymph vessels just like your blood vessels). Yet while your circulatory system has your heart to pump and clean your blood automatically, your lymph has NO built-in pump whatsoever. Lymph only moves manually through exercise, massage, and diet; which is why it’s so easy to get backed up with our modern lifestyle. 🍕 In the blog post I talk about symptoms of a sluggish lymphatic system, the 6 most common causes, and 7 solutions you can implement today to get things moving. 🌀🔥
