Replacing Good Probiotics After Cleanse?
I am currently doing the parasite cleanse with three herbs. All three herbs kill good bacteria, yet it states you need to take it every week. How do you replace the good bacteria if you are constantly killing them off?
Is it best to do a high-dose parasite cleanse every three months (same as my pets)? If so how long for and at what dosage?

Good for you for treating your pets too!
You bring up a valid point about how good bacteria are affected by the parasite cleanse, and I would add that colon and liver cleanses can also impact good bacteria.
Some people experience no symptoms, while other have a "die off" that causes diarrhea and other cleansing response. The body then rebalances, and you can pay attention to whether your body seems to be reaching a new healthy normal or needs a little help, if that makes sense.
But if you are noticing digestive issues, it might be hard to stay on a cycle of parasite cleanses even if you could replenish somehow. That's okay because the ultimate goal is to restore your body's own ability to kill parasites, and there are other ways to do that. The parasite cleanse is just a solid first step.
I like Dr. Hulda Clark's systematic approach of also cleansing the colon, liver, and kidneys. The colon may be most important of all, since it houses 80-85% of the body's immune system. Some natural health practitioners focus primarily on restoring gut biology.
Other healers like Andreas Moritz focus on liver health. When the liver produces adequate bile, that will kill parasites as well. His view is that the parasite cleanse can cause too many symptoms, and it's better to focus on the liver.
So I would encourage you to branch out more if you haven't already, and just really listen to your body and pay attention to how it responds. You can stay on the parasite herbs or stop, whichever makes more sense to you. It's a journey that takes time, but you can get there.
I'm guessing you have your pets on Dr. Hulda Clark's pet parasite cleanse
? It is a slightly different program adapted to the size of the pet. A natural herbal cleanse
can also be used.
The bigger issue with pets is the food we give them. Dr. Clark pointed out some of the contaminants in pet food, but the main thing to aim for is a diet as close to what they would eat in the wild as possible. Or if your health situation is serious and you need to protect yourself, the herbs are safe to continue as directed.
I hope that helps! Let us know if you have other questions.
