Good post. I've gotten out so many worms over the past few months, and I'm ready to take on the tapeworms. Why are they so hard to get rid of? Ive been using herbs, lately I've been looking into the drugs, but I don't want any liver damage/hair loss. One lady was recommending pyrantal pamoate (dog/horse roundworm) and she said it was safe with no side effects. Your wife's fast with the l-cysteine looked like a good idea but I hate fasting. Have you ever tried Zymex II for tapeworm?
