Dear Raw Girl: Parasites That Won’t Go Away

January 19, 2012

Dear Raw Girl:  The worms seem resistant to the cleanses.  I do believe everything happens for a reason.  We all have more awareness about the food that enters out bodies.  Just a few questions: How much apple cider vinegar daily?  Raw garlic?  Do the worms have a cycle they go through and then finally leave?  How long of a process is this, until we are free from the parasites?   Feel free to use my name, whatever.  I’m shocked that there isn’t more information and pictures up on the web.  We can’t be the only ones with these parasites. Thank you,  Kelli Lofgren Salt Lake City, UT

Dearest Kelli: First off sooo sorry for the delay in response! Just saw your email. Disclaimer–I am not, at least yet 😉 a doctor. For now, since it is an emergency—-you can drink properly diluted apple cider vinegar as much as you want throughout the day with no ill side effects–by adding it to water. You can add garlic to meals, but an easier way to take in garlic that has provided me with relief is to take Kyolic Garlic  pills they are odorless and you can get more garlic for your buck. Read the recommended dosage and take that twice a day. I now take those regularly to prevent parasites altogether. The process of getting rid of a parasite cannot be quantified in terms of length of time—it really depends on how aggressive you are with maintaining an alkaline diet free of sugars/carbs (that help them grow). The amount of time it takes to die can vary; especially if you continue to eat foods that keep them alive. If you are persistent for a straight month and are not getting rid of worms then, you may want to try to go to a doctor to get tested to see if you can find out what kind of worms you have. At times different worms require a different plan of attack. It took me MONTHS the first time around to become parasite-free, probably 3 months to be exact. Now if I’m feeling like I need a cleanse, I can aggressive go at it for 2 weeks to a month and see results. Most over the counter parasite cleanses are 2 week-long cleanses, but if you do those without also keeping your diet alkaline, especially sugar and carb-free, you may have your unwanted guests staying a little longer. I hope this was of some help to you. Check out my past posts on parasites and foods that are useful and stay focused. You will be parasite-free! -XoXo Raw Girl



  1. Coconut oil helps too with parasites, right? I have heard of folks doing a cleanse with coconut oil.

    • Yes, coconut kills parasites. I sometimes eat the oil…extra virgin coconut oil by the teaspoon daily. Thank you for your comment Heather! -XoXo Raw Girl
