Diet of Worms

The following foods work in support of an OTC or prescription vermicide. This information is gleaned from a variety of sources, but I encourage you to do your own research.

Roasted, Salted Pumpkin Seeds
Whole, uncracked, presoaked kasha (w/ shredded coconut, a plus)
Pineapple chunks—once a day
Pineapple juice—every day. (Opt. 2 cups each person.)
Pumpkin Tea (Fresh seeds, crushed, one oz/pint, steep 15 minutes.)
Senna and Peppermint Tea (˝ and ˝)
Castor oil? ˝ tsp day after breakfast
Plenty of water
Garlic Tabs Every Day
Apricot Juice
Grated Carrot Salad
Hazelnut Oil 1 tbsp/day

(Note: This post is not about this Diet of Worms or the Diet of Bookworms.)

Hey, we've been eating worms for a couple days now! On the way to therapy yesterday, C asked when we could have some gummy worms. He said, "Not the dirt kind, the fruity kind." :-) So when they happened to be next to the check-out counter when we were at the store later, I said, "Sure."

Nothing like worms for dessert! :-D

My raw fish loving in-laws take pills yearly for this sort of thing. . .

I didn't like history as a child, but I loved reading about the "Diet of Worms" before I found out it is pronounced "Vorms."

Those little creatures hate the stuff you mentioned. I have read so much information about it. They link intestinal parasites to some diseaseas. I eat raw garlic daily. It is good for the immune system, complextion, etc.

Missionary friends of ours who worked in South America in the boonies would always have to go through the "3Ds" as they called it when they would travel home on furlough: de-louse, de-worm, and de-ameboa. When the kids at my wife's school had to be deloused, they felt much more at ease, not having to be the only ones to go through it all.
