No. 49 – Got Worms?

As I’ve mentioned before, for better or for worse, the whole natural world tends to take a ‘holistic’ view of things, often meaning two things:

1. If you can just begin using / doing ABC, then everything that’s wrong in your health will click into place.

-OR-

2. All of your issues are really manifesting because of this one central issue, XYZ is the root issue.

If I had a dollar for every time I heard the words ‘root issue’…

Recently, I believe in part thanks to my original naturopath, my wife got it into her head that my ‘root issue’ was possibly parasites. Probably from the cat.

This initiated a very unpleasant period of imposed stool inspections (and mandated reports):

WIFE: “How was it today?”

ME: “How was what?”

WIFE: “You know what.”

ME: “I don’t want to talk about it.”

WIFE: “Anything moving?”

ME: “No.”

WIFE: What?

ME: “I said, NO!”

WIFE: “……are you breaking it up at all or are you just sort of doing a surface inspection?”

ME: “Yes, yes, I broke it up! I have to go take my herbal treatments now, this conversation is over.”*

(*Dramatized)

I was on an intense regimen of herbal extracts specifically targeting my writhing swarms within. I was also on diatomaceous earth, and bowel pathogen nosode (a homeopathic thing).

AUTHOR’S NOTE – Never at any time did I actually confirm through stool inspections that I did have, or have had, parasites. Just to make that clear.

That said, taking all of these items did eventually make me feel better (vomiting issues, see this post).

I think this post wins the prize for the most backlinks…

NEXT WEEK, ON THE CRUNCHY DUNGEON:

Even now as I write this, I think to myself, would it be all that bad? Lots of people are doing it. I’ve been aware of it for a while now, it seems almost more normal…
