This is not a menu. This is not a diet plan. This is not a protocol. These are the foods that have been shown through research and historical use to have anti-parasitic properties. I have used all of these foods listed here during various phases of my treatment plan to eliminate my parasitic infection. I also eat on a regular basis, even when on an actual blend, as these foods are health promoting.
I am not claiming that this plan is right for you or someone you know.
This is information based on my research and personal experience only.
Please see a qualified healthcare provider for guidance.
