    If you take to close of garlic a day can it be cooked or must it be raw?
    Is that enough to get rid of parasites? By symptoms are infrequent bowel movements I am taking Metamucil 3 times a day plus one dulcalax and one colace plus acidapholis after meals so the constipation produces a medium soft stole but small in quantity and infrequent I have gas and bloating and I don’t know how much is from the Metamucil and how much is from possible parasites? I had constipation for many years but it has gotten progressively worse can you help me I appreciate it so much I don’t know what to do Thank you for anything you can do to help me.

    Unfortunately have much experience fighting these intestinal bugs caused by my extensive global business travel. First they are very resilient against Cipro etc. However I have experienced relief from a OTC product called ParaGone, ie Parasite be Gone. PG pills help cleanse intestinal tract while drops contain ingredients Dr. Bhatia recommends eg Black Walnut, Wormwood leaf and three others. The drops are a bit nasty tasting, but I’m used to now tolerating it fairly well – it tastes like licqurish concentrate. One downside to this topic is from my experiences – I don’t think you really win the war – you just win the battles with these helpful tools. I still have issues flair up from time to time and all I do is take 5-7 drops and a like a small gut-nuke keeps the beasts at bay. I hope this helps . . . If someone has the final or better solution I’d love to read it. PS. I eat a lot of cooked garlic, doesn’t seems to aid the battle.
