My interest in the subject of parasites began with my long stays in Asia where I periodically live and work.
Fortunately, in my naive days I had the benefit of my husband's childhood experiences traveling and living in Asia. He made me aware of the do's and dont's when it comes to eating and drinking and the risk of picking up some sort of parasite in Third World places.
The first occasion that I contracted a mild abdominal parasite was on the eve of the New Millenium in Bali, Indonesia at a fabulous buffet spread!
My husband warned me not to eat the heavily spiced prawns. We were too far from the sea. In the tropical heat, they couldn't possibly be fresh.
They tasted fine but ignoring his sage advice I had just a tiny taste.
Fortunately what followed was a mild case of cramps and diarrhea. And it was the locals at our hotel who gave me an effective remedy: eat the thick residue of finely ground coffee found at the bottom of a cup of Bali Kopi, followed by a bowl of simple white rice and a banana.
The second time I contracted a stomach bug was in Kuala Lumpur at a fine restaurant. Even though every dish on the table was shared, I was the only one who came down with terrible stomach cramps and diarrhea that would not stop...until an expat neighbor offered me a dose of the Hulda Clark remedy: a tincture of wormwood, green black walnut hulls and cloves.
The relief after the first dose was almost immediate.
Perhaps because I am now wise to the sources of parasites or because I regularly include antiparasitic foods in my diet, I haven't had a parasite encounter since but I never leave home without my
And I've shared it often with the unwise and hapless victims of parasite attacks.
