My Experience With Humaworm: A 30-Day Herbal Parasite Cleanse

Updated on September 3, 2018

Sunstreeks successfully used Humaworm to relieve long-term symptoms associated with a parasite infestation.

Are You Considering Doing a Parasite Cleanse?

I chose to use Humaworm to do a natural parasite cleanse back in 2008. This is a true and honest testimonial and is unpaid and unaffiliated. I want to share my personal experience using this cleanse as there are many options out there. If you are considering doing a parasite cleanse, I recommend that you follow the directions carefully and completely.

Start by Researching Which Products Are Available

I came across Humaworm while researching the different types of human parasite-cleanse products that are available. My source for parasite-cleanse program information was the internet. There are also some medical message boards that offer advice on natural and alternative medicine. I used the CureZone forums.

I felt that Humaworm was superior to the many parasite-cleansing products and methods available because it covers the entire life cycle of most parasites and kills adults, larvae, and eggs. I have read many success stories of other natural parasite-cleanse products, but I felt most comfortable taking the one that worked the longest.

Humanworm Is a 30-Day Cleanse

Humaworm is meant to be taken twice a day for 30 days. If you miss one of your doses, you are not only not killing all of the parasites, but you are aggravating them which could lead to more complications (antibiotics cause the same problem if not taken correctly).

Possible Symptoms of Intestinal Parasites

I could be considered a germaphobe. I wash my hands often, I am strict when it comes to handling raw meat, I cringe at the sight of others using old sponges on countertops, and the thought of my daughter in a fast-food playground makes me ill. At the same time, I've not always been this way, and I've always been an advocate of the five-second food rule. The rest of my article may not be suitable for sensitive stomachs.

I Had Chronic Issues With My Bowel Movements

You may be wondering why I decided to use Humanworm. I'm going to be brutally honest. I've had foul, rancid-smelling bowel movements. Most individuals close to me know about my bowel issues. My family is well aware of my issues, too, and I've been told enough times that I might have something wrong with my bowels. I'm also never regular. I'm either passing rivers or building a dam—experiencing loose stools or constipation.

After doing some research, I decided that I may be dealing with parasites. I've occasionally seen parasitic remains in my stool. If you are grossed out at this point, don't worry, it gets better.

My Experience Doing a Parasite Cleanse

I started my parasite cleanse February 14th, 2008. I felt completely fine before starting. I took a pregnancy test as a precaution, even though my chances of being pregnant were extremely low because of my Mirena IUD. Better safe than sorry.

Week 1: February 14th, 2008 (The First 24 Hours)

Here are some of the symptoms I am experiencing:

  • Sinus Discomfort: I feel like I have a sinus headache. This must be my first burn-off symptom and seems to be common to many from what I have read.
  • Occasional Pains: I am experiencing random pain and weird, subtle sensations throughout my body, mostly in my abdomen— particularly during the first hour or two after taking the capsules. Nothing serious, but definitely noticeable.
  • Changes to Stool: I noticed a white substance in my stool which I believe is candida (after comparing it to other parasite pictures).

What Is Burn Off?

"Burn off" is a term used to describe the uncomfortable side effects experienced when toxins are released by parasites in the body.

Week 2: February 26th, 2008 (Day 11)

I couldn't tell you what it was that I found two days ago in the toilet, but it definitely wasn't something I ate.

Here are some of the symptoms I am experiencing:

  • Headaches: I have occasional headaches here and there.
  • Mild Physical Sensations: I feel weird sensations in my stomach-area mostly. Nothing serious, just noticeable.
  • Right-Sided Pain: I notice a sharp pain on my right side every time I take the pill.
  • Stool Abnormalities: I have been finding small tubes that unravel in my stool. I am guessing these are parts of liver flukes.

I took a picture of some of the noticeable changes in my stool and I am asking the Humaworm forum if they know what it is.

Week 2: February 27th, 2008 (Day 12)

Here are some of the symptoms I am experiencing:

  • Burning Sensations: I have been feeling stronger pains, almost like localized burning sensations in my stomach area. Still nothing truly painful, just uncomfortable and very noticeable.
  • Changes in Stool: I found what looked like a possible liver fluke in my stool.

Visual Confirmation of My Liver Fluke(s)

I posted the picture of what I found in my stool last night and asked the Humaworm message board what it was. This morning, I had an answer from RG himself, the owner of Humaworm. He confirmed it was indeed a human parasite liver fluke that I was passing.

With that confirmation, I started my research and found a few images that showed two sets of testes, each looking strikingly similar to my liver fluke picture. I am convinced that what I passed and photographed is indeed liver fluke testes.

The thought of having liver flukes would have previously made me ill. Instead, finding out that my bowel problems are caused by something that I can fix without surgery or anything invasive is reassuring. I am not even halfway through this human parasite cleanse, and I am anxious to find out if there are any other unwanted guests hitching a ride in my body.

Week 3: March 2nd, 2008 (Day 16)

It's day 16, I am almost halfway through the cleanse.

Here are some of the symptoms I am experiencing:

  • Flukes in Stool: I am passing more liver fluke parts.
  • Die-Off Symptoms: I am noticing strong die-off symptoms.
  • Itching: My body itches all over. It feels like I am wearing a bad sweater.
  • Lethargy: I am extremely tired.

My sleepiness has gone on for the past three days. I wonder if my sleepiness is just a symptom of die-off or if it is intensified by a condition I already have. Hopefully, it goes away soon.

A Note About My Sleep Irregularity

I did a sleep study six months ago. I was told that my nighttime sleep was ok, but that I have excessive sleepiness during the day. I was told I have normal nighttime sleep patterns except for the fact that I go into REM sleep too fast. My daytime sleep study is what concerned the doctors the most. During a series of regulated nap sessions, it was shown that I fall asleep in the daytime in less than 3.2 minutes.

I was given medication meant for those with narcolepsy, but after taking it for a week, I decided that feeling great during the day was not enough to make up for how lousy I would feel from about 4 p.m. on. My symptoms were never so serious to me that I felt it necessary to take the medication.

Week 3: March 7th, 2008 (Day 21)

Here are some of the symptoms I am experiencing:

  • Lethargy and Sleepiness: I am so tired. I sleep in late and have to take a nap around mid-afternoon most days. Whether my increased daytime drowsiness is a symptom of the parasite cleanse or just a result of inactivity, I do not know.
  • Stomach Sensations: I am experiencing weird sensations in my stomach (as usual).
  • Headaches: I am experiencing occasional headaches.
  • Vivid Dreams: I am experiencing crazy dreams at night.
  • Changes in Stool: I've noticed a white, thready substance in my stool.

So, now that sleep is becoming such a huge issue, is it related to the parasite cleanse? Maybe it is just a die-off symptom from the parasite cleanse.

Decreased Sensitivity to Caffeine

Here's the greatest change that I've noticed so far. I was at a friend's house a few days ago and had two cups of coffee. I love coffee, but whenever I drink it, even just one cup, I find myself in the bathroom with diarrhea. My body just could not seem to process it. Last Tuesday was the first exception. I had two cups of coffee and no diarrhea. I didn't even have the sensation of feeling sick to my stomach. This is a huge, welcomed change.

Week 3: March 13th, 2008 (Day 27)

Here are some of the symptoms I am experiencing:

  • Itching: I have been experiencing itching all over my body. Last night the itching would not go away on my right side. I almost put hydrocortisone on it, but ended up falling asleep.
  • Possible Petechiae: I've noticed red, blood-like dots all over, mostly on my arms and chest.
  • Restlessness: I have scratch marks on my body from trying to relieve the itching during my sleep.
  • Increased Water Intake: I think that I am slacking on my water intake and my body is trying to purge toxins. Today I am drinking my full eight glasses.

Noticeable Improvements

The strong fatigue seems to have passed. I am feeling much more awake throughout the day. I am not as awake as I wish to be, but perhaps when I am no longer actively killing these parasites, I will feel better.

I am feeling quite good but I have to say, this is definitely no miracle cure. I don't feel like a different person, but I do feel better. I am almost done with the pills, but I expect to pass parasites for some time after due to the herbs still being in my system.

Tips for Doing a Human Parasite Cleanse

If there is anything I want to tell others, it is to not be afraid to do a parasite cleanse. In the beginning, I wasn't sure that I would be able to tolerate seeing parasites in my stool, but once I got going, I became fascinated by the science of it.

Keep in mind that you don't have to study your stool for signs of parasite expulsion. There are many images available online that demonstrate this. The image pictured above was the weirdest thing I saw. Everything else looked like mere remnants of something. Here are two tips to follow if you choose to do a cleanse:

  1. Take pictures.
  2. Visit the CureZone message board to identify the parasites. You can find support and encouragement and answers to your questions from those that have done the cleanse already.

I am thankful to Humaworm for offering such a quality product. I liked that Humaworm doesn't use misleading marketing to try to get people to buy their cleanse, they just offer a great product to those who want it.

There are other parasite-cleanse options out there and many (I've heard) have good results as well. I'm sure that I will be sticking with Humaworm. I'm also considering trying out some of the other products as well.

    My wife got this product for us to try and while on this 4 day Holiday. (Thanksgiving 2011) I have been taking Humaworm for 4 days now and feel nothing is happening. I drink 2 cups of coffee each morning and my bowel movements are the same as they were before starting the Humaworm. I drink plenty of water during the day and wonder if it really works? I will continue with the dosage and give it a chance to work. No feeling of "dying off" no ill feelings at all.

    Hi I am using Humaworm! It's great. After seeing many doctors I have been getting healthier and healthier for years. I am so happy to read your post. I got a huge infestation of pinworms which Mebendazole did not help and I started using this product. I have not had many side effects when I drink my water. I am passing very strange things which look like small tomatoes (1 inch in diameter) with thick stems??? Your photo reassured me that it is merely something which needs to go. My digestion has become fabulous. I can eat foods I haven't been able to eat in decades and I am losing weight normally. Very good.

    wow, what great info. It's funny I came across this tonight as my girlfriend and I are both having serious issues. She much worse than I and earlier I came across something else on colon health and colonics and parasites. So needless to say, I'm looking forward to getting us both cleaned out. It's not a comfortable feeling, to say the least, but WOW!!! I wonder though, if someone already has a weakened immune system, due to hiv, if the cleanse is safe. my girlfriend has been positive for 20+ years and is considered 'living with' as opposed to narrow minded folks saying 'dying from'. At any rate, I am anxious to learn if it is indeed safe for her as well. She already experiences extreme fatigue and has lately been complaining A LOT about 'just not feeling right' 'something's just not right in my belly'......SO....we can't wait to get these damn bugs out of us!! I am a massage therapist, for 16 years, and I'm always looking for 'natural' or 'holistic' or 'alternative' ways of healing and feeling better. So with that said,

    I thank you so much for the info.

    To your health

    peace

    Wow, part of me is utterly grossed out and part of me is thinking that I really need to do a parasite cleanse. I've done regular colon cleanses and they help somewhat, but I have chronic fatigue and also diarrhea problems with all kinds of foods so maybe it would help!

    Oh wow - what a fantastic hub. I know it's strange getting excited about a parasitic cleanse but when it is one of the major <a href="http://www.tired-of-fatigue.com">tiredness symptoms</a> that people don't recognise it's really important to get the message 'out there'. Both myself and my husband had <a href="http://www.tired-of-fatigue.com">tiredness symptoms</a> recently so did a cleanse and I really intended to keep a detailed log of everything - it lasted a couple of days and was no-where near as detailed as yours!

    Maybe you have found your true vocation in life - well done ;)

    Whoa this is some reading.

    Your situation is a classic example of modern medicine not having a clue of what is really going on. This is not to say doctors are evil uncaring individuals, they just can not know all the ailments there are or what cause them.

    The sad part is that our current system of believes is to wait till we aren't well before we act.

    I can say that I have never heard of anyone being aware enough to analyse themselves, you are more of a medical practitioner than 99% of the doctors licensed today.

    Your choice of natural cleansers is a wise one. The only thing I can add is the suggestion to research total natural nutrition including a wide variety of probiotics. Probiotics are like little armies fighting other parasitic life forms.

    However like all nutrients, they can not be isolated or synthesized, they must accompany other nutrient substances in living forms to be most effective.

    I hope you have come out of this experience feeling much better.

    Trish,

    I spent a lot of time at the Cure-zone message boards for parasite cleansing and the humaworm board. I highly reccommened anyone who is even considering doing this type of body cleanse read through months and months of posts.

    Some of the things found in my stool, and some of the symptoms I had were quiet unpleasant. But I did the research and learned as much as I could as to what I should expect. I read countless posts from other people who were doing parasite cleansers to decide which one would be the best for me and through this I learned that many of the die-off symptoms others had, so when they came on I was a little uneased, and maybe even grossed out but not really too scared.

    Actually the thing that really bothered me was finding the liver fluke teste. I was ok with finding it, but the size of it and what that meant for the size of the liver fluke it must have belonged too got to me a little :)

    Die-off is different for everyone. For some it can be really nasty, and for others they may not notice anything. It's really just one of those things were you have to read everything you can before trying it out.

    Hi Sunstreeks,

    Absolutely, it is your right to treat your body the way you see fit. Just because a doctor says something is ok, doesn't mean it is necessarily. I guess, to me, the results you were getting sounded almost worse than the problem. I think it would have scared me to death. But that's me :)

    Good luck with your journey to good health,

    Trish

    I actually agree with you. I did quite a bit of research on colon cleanse programs and am very leary of many. You really have to research the ingreidents of any herbal product.

    The Humaworm product lists ALL 25 herb ingriedents, none of which are chemical manmade products. These are herbs that have been used for years and years and are measured to give safe amounts to the majority. This does not mean they are safe for everyone. There are some ingriedents used that are not safe for children or pregnant women, there is a child formula that omits these herbs. There are also possible allergies to some of the herbs. It really has to be an educated choice and researching the ingriedents is a must before try ANY kind of herbal product.

    I am a big believer of the Humaworm product because I have used it and seen it work. I have not used anything else so I could'nt give any advice. The die-off symptoms are the result of the body trying to rid itself of the toxins produced not just by the dying parasites but of other toxins being cleared from your system.

    As far as my doctors went, I was given many different reasons for my different ailments over the years and offered many different prescription options to help the problems but not fix them, and no I did not consult my doctor, but that was my choice. For everyone else, that decision has to be your own.

    Did you get any second opinions as to the cause of your problem and whether or not these 'cleanse treatments are safe? Seeing those info-mercials on tv make me tend to believe these treatments are really not safe, no matter what they claim. I feel they are simply out to make $$.

    The 'side-effects' you describe would have made me run to the nearest doctor. It doesn't sound right to experience what you went through. Although I'm glad you are feeling better, I just can't help but wonder, from a medical standpoint, NOT from these colon cleanse people, just how safe the product is.

I can tell you that my bowel movements, while not the desciption of healthy, still show signs of improvement compared to prior doing Humaworm

    Hi Dawn,yes, that is quite a few questions. I think identifing them individully may be the easiest. I am feeling better. The crazy fatigue I was expereincing just days ago has passed and I am back to getting up in th morning and going through the day without a nap. I am still a bit tired sometimes, but I don't have that "wanna sleep all day" feeling anymore. I am also excited to be able to drink coffee again without diarreah. In the past, a single coffee meant that I would have diarreah later. I LOVE coffee, so many times I would just accept this as what would be part of my morning. As of the past week or so, I can now drink a cup of coffee and not feel my stomach queeze up. No diarreah despite the caffine pick me up.

    What made you think it was parasites?

    At first, I would never have thought it was parasites. A few months ago I didn't even know that most of us have parasites. I was just another person that believed parasites were third world country problems. It wasn't until I started researching colon health and colon cleanses that I learned human parasites can be responsible for poor colon health. I started reading as much as I could about human parasites. I found myself identifing with most of the symptoms of parasites that were responsible for poor colon health. I also realized that my frequent yeast infections are due to an abundance of candida.

     Where do you think you picked them up? 

    The candida becoming a problem (some candida in the body is normal, an overgrowth is not) I'm think has a lot to due with frequent antibiotic use for my sinus infections I get each winter.  The Liver flukes are said to be spread from eating fish from fresh waters infested with flukes. My dad is an avid sport fisherman and frequently brings home fish and shellfish including crabs. It's very possible something I ate was not cooked correctly. This of course is just speculation and who knows where they came from.

    How long do you think you've had them?

    According to my irregular foul smelling bowel movement issues, I've been dealing with this for years. My doctors response was that possible lactose intolerance or IBS. This was of the top of her head as no tests were run.  They say that 85% to 90% of us have parasites, so I'm willing to bet that I've always had something.

    When you started the Cleanse did you notice any change in the smell, shape, size, or texture? Were the movements thin and narrow, or wide, and formed?

     It has varied. I had been using a colon cleanser for a few weeks prior, so during use my bowels were starting to look somewhat normal. I stopped using that when I started the parasite cleanse.  There was some red tones when I started seeing the fluke parts. Occasionally even parts are orangish. Most the time really though, they are a normal color. The shape and texture varies. As gross as it sounds I actually inspect my stool about every other day with two plastic knifes. Sometimes it is easy to break apart the stool and see something, I noticed that when the stool is tough there is rarely anything noticeable in it.  Occasionally I have had diarreah. Two nights ago I had severe stomach cramping where I had to stop what I was doing and take a moment. The diarreah that followed had a bunch of orangish thin stringy slimy substance. What I was able to collect I put in a small transparent plastic dish, I'm guessing from the looks of it when it lays flat in a small amount of water, whatever it came from it was the outer part of the organism.

    With the identifiable parasite you have, can it be passed to others by sharing drinks and such?

    I've not heard of liver flukes or candida being contagious. Pinworms(glad I didn't have) is a common parasite in children which is highly contagious.

    How will you confirm they're gone?

    I think that time will tell and truly it may not be rational to beleive they will all be gone for good. Under control may be a better goal.  I am already planning to do another 30 days of Humaworm 6 months from now. I've seen some say that they had even better results the second time they did a parasite cleanse and because parasites can be picked up from anywhere, it's important to do regular cleaning. It is suggested that every 6 months is good. I think I will do again in 6 months and then just yearly after that.

    Do you normally take vitamins?

    Not really. I do not take a multi-vitamin. I do drink flavored waters that contain vitamins.

    I hope this helps and if you have any other questions or if you would like me to clairfy on anything feel free to ask or you can send a message directly to me by e-mail. Either way, glad to help.

    Hey Sunstreeks!

    How graphic can you get? lol...Gag me with a spoon, ehh? lol

    On a serious note: what made you think it was parasites. Where do you think you picked them up, and how long do you think you've had them?

    When you started the Cleanse did you notice any change in the smell, shape, size, or texture...(see I can be gross too! lol) Were the movements thin and narrow, or wide, and formed?

    With the identifiable parasite you have, can it be passed to others by sharing drinks and such? I haven't read the links yet. How will you confirm they're gone, and do you normally take vitamins.

    I do mega research in this area, and I find your case very interesting. I'm sorry to bombard with questions, but I think people need to know as much as possible about this. It's rampant in our society, and it's not really a familiar subject with many.

    I can probably guess where you picked them up, but I was curious if you had any idea.

    Thank you for posting this, I don't care how gross you get, I think it's critical people be aware of what dangers lurk out there.

    I hope you're feeling better, and I look forward to hearing more. Please join my hub so we can stay linked. You may also like what I write about too.

    Take care,

    Cheers!
