Check out humaworm.com. I found this site after my daughter was diagnosed with a parasite. It's all natural and many people have great results with it.

These diseases are so so scary and so are the treatments. When will stem cells help us in solving all these horrible phases of life? I hope a day comes when we can all smile...

Hi dianemp. Did the herbal medicines from humaworm.com work for your daughter? My dad has the parasitic cysts and I am wondering if that will work for him.
