I took other digestive enzyme supplements as I did this program, but I have no idea whether bromelain will get the tapeworm. I got mine killed off by using the Zymex 2.
I didn't play around experimenting. I knew I was in trouble when I started this program, didn't have the clarity of mind to read for extended hours on all the forums and do an awful lot of research and understand the whys and wherefores. So I went with what worked or Doc's suggestions as he put this program together. I needed a sure bet. I dumped over 14# of parasites and over 10# of junk off the colon wall. It took me approximately a year and a half to get rid of the main paraistic infestation. I really didn't want to fool around with something I wasn't sure was going to work. I didn't alter the program in any way, except for doing the Gerson coffee enemas. I did add other dewormers to the Barefoot dewormer. I wanted to get well. After I got well on the way to getting better, then I decided I'd do some more research on how other things worked. I haven't been able to improve on what Doc has originally come up with. It's a choice concerning what a person wants to do. Living or dying becomes a choice when doing natural healing. Of course, if you go the medical route, you don't have that choice. If you have a lot of knowledge about natural therapies and want to alter the original program here, know it works, then I say "go for it". Otherwise, if what you're doing isn't working, or if you have a question like this, then I would suggest you sitck to the original protocol. If that isn't an attractive alternative, then experiment with other things, but I have no idea of the amount of bromelain you would need to kill off a tapeworm. Or even if it would. Maybe someone else does. Tapeworms are very tough to get and don't die easily. The old way of getting tapeworms required not eating for a while and using some strong herbs.
You have to leave an interim of a week between rounds of Zymex 2 to allow the tapeworm eggs to hatch, then you hit them again with another round, IF you did not get them, or have a question about getting them gone.
I know we run into some expense while doing this program, we all like and need to save money, but what is it worth to you to experiment with something not really understood, if your life is on the line or you're real sick to start with? What we use is all natural. That's something only you, on an individual basis, can evaluate, IMO.
