Re: How I got rid of hives.
Hi. Sorry for the delayed reply - I don't check email regularly.
Diet restrictions - Over time I'v eliminated refined sweets like cake, cookies, soft drinks, sweetened foods, but kept fruits, honey, and occasionally maple syrup. I've greatly reduced refined foods in general and white flour foods. That leaves me with meats (preferably nonprocessed), whole grains, raw & cooked vegetables, dairy (but less melted cheese), nuts, and fruits. Primarily I've preferred food that promotes regularity.
I got the wormwood tincture and black walnut capsules from a place called "Herbal Healer Academy". I don't work for them and I don't represent them in any way. I'm only putting their name here because you requested. They have a website. However, I've seen many parasite cleanse products of different brands but basically the same ingredients in Whole Foods stores.
The tincture and capsules took about 6 weeks. Tincture amount was about 1/4 to 1/2 dropper before meals and 2 capsules after meals. Wormwood has a bad reputation, but this amount is less than one would get from a bottle of mead, which seems to enjoy a renaissance lately. I never experienced any bad "side effects".
I also started a week ahead with powdered psyllium seed (about 1 tsp in glass of water, followed by lots of water) an hour or more after meals. Psyllium taken right after a meal will increase bloating and will absorb the nutrients from the food. The psyllium cleans the gunk out, but drink lots of water or it will stop you up. I continued taking psyllium during the 6 weeks. Powdered psyllium comes in multiple brands in Whole Foods, as "Metamucil" in the supermarkets, and about a bazillion brands on-line. I got mine from the same place as the parasite detox.
My physician (g.p.) shrugged her shoulders and said "no one knows what causes hives, but take some benadryl to ease the itching". After my success with the parasite cleanse I excitedly told her about my "new discovery" but she just sort of laughed it off as "cute", showing no serious interest.
