  • This is completely BUNK! :eek: Blaze wrote; If you have diabetes you have parasites. :rolleyes: Blaze: Diabetes is caused by many things and you should not make such generalized statements like this that could mislead someone to trying an herbal supplement when they should be getting to a dr to get checked out for a serious problem like diabetes. PS Hot baths bad idea for a diabetic.... less nerve sensation increases burn/scalding risks....DANGEROUS IDEA! :eek: Folks, you got to look out when you look for advice on the internet... :eek: some of it isn't accurate, and some advice can be unsafe. Be careful, be savvy. And do a lot of research from credible websites. Please read the following links; they will be helpful to you as you seek your answers I believe. http://wrongdiagnosis.com/diagnosis/self.htmhttp://wrongdiagnosis.com/diagnosis/pitfalls-online-diagnosis.htm++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If you have diabetes, you have parasites. I think you would benefit greatly from parasite cleansing and detoxification. http://www.drclark.net/ I'm not sure what the leg pain means, but hot baking soda baths (until you sweat) have helped me with pain from my Lyme.
