Hi Schroom, it sounded like c7oj was talking about testing to see what kind of parasites she had.
I believe a person should have regular blood tests and consult a medical advisor on a regular basis.
I was refering to tests for parasites, which I find usually unreliable, and a expense too be avoided unless herbs don't do the job.
Medical docters for the most part are not trained to deal with parasites and don't believe we will get them in the USA.
If they do find parasites doctors want to perscribe one kind of medication for one kind of parasite, and there are side effects for most prescription meds that are best avoided.
Many people that study these things believe most of us have around 10 various kinds of parasites - and herbs go after all of them.
I have had my blood analysed using Dark Field Microscopy (AKA Live Blood Analysis) and discovered that my blood is perfect... I get a regular blood test every year, and compare it to a book it have by Anne Louise Gittleman and my tests are always in the optimum range. If my blood work showed anything different, I would be right on it with natural remedies. Yes, I believe in having blood tests.
