For my entire life, I had been lucky enough to consider myself healthy. I didn’t have any major health problems and didn’t even need to take medicine like most people that I knew. When someone is as healthy as I was it makes sense to have the feeling that you are invincible. That you just won’t get sick and stay happy. That was my thought process and my life until March of 2022. I had even survived the worst time of the pandemic being lucky enough to not get sick. That was when all of my luck ran out.
At the end of February 2022, my mother passed away. My entire life was changed in just that one moment and I had no idea how to deal with it all. It was 3 days before my birthday and instead of planning a cake and celebration I had to plan a funeral. What nobody mentions is that trying to plan a funeral is just like trying to plan any other big event, except you have basically no emotional capacity for it and just a week to pull it together. I was in deep grief and could barely handle doing anything. I was a total mess, and I didn’t think that it would get any worse than that.
Many doctors will tell you that when your mental health declines your immune system weakens and you have a higher chance of being sick. Believe me when I say that my mental health was the worst of my life while I was grieving and trying to come to terms with the death of my mother. She was one of the most important people in my life and I was stuck planning a funeral and having to think about how I will never see or talk to her again.
That was when things got worse and in March I contracted COVID and never thought I would have it as bad as I did. Most of the stories I heard about people having it were very mild or they didn’t even have any symptoms at all. I was so weak from all of my grief that the virus took a pretty strong hold and I got sick. It hit me really hard and for two full weeks, I was too sick to do anything at all. I got hit harder with a sickness than I ever had before. I knew that something else was going on and that I had to see a doctor and get checked out.
It turned out that COVID hit my respiratory system so hard that I developed pneumonia on top of the COVID virus. I got put on antibiotics for pneumonia but the only thing I could do for the virus was staying home and weather it out. I was contagious and because of that, I had to be left alone with not much else but my own thoughts. My poor mental state had gotten me sick and being sick meant that I was just able to sit and think, making my mental state worse. It was an endless cycle and for a while, I didn’t think I was ever going to get better.
After two weeks I was starting to heal from both and foolishly thought that would be the end of everything. I would be able to attempt to get back to my life and build my immune system back up. I was one of the people that got a bad case of COVID, but I came out on the other side of it. What I didn’t know at the time was that once April hit I was going to find out that things could and would get much worse when it came to my health.
I started to get this horrible itch around my eyes and face. After what I just went through I was terrified and did the thing every doctor tells you not to, I googled my symptoms. It led me to think that I had a parasite called Demodex. It wasn’t just a small itch either, it stopped me from once again functioning and it was all I could think of. Before I went to bed and in the middle of the night I would just wake up and have the worst itching by my eyes that I could imagine. I knew that the only thing I could do was go to a doctor and see if they could help do something about the parasites. All he did was give me antibiotics and a referral for a dermatologist that wouldn’t be able to see me for six months. He told me that I didn’t have a parasite because only poor countries had them. I was not going back to this doctor after he said something like that. I knew I couldn’t live like that and started to look more into this parasite myself. I knew that antibiotics don’t do anything for it, so I didn’t even bother picking them up.
I found a lot of really good information about Demodex that I want to share with all of you. They are a type of parasitic mite that lives on the hair follicles of mammals. They are extremely small and the type that is usually found on humans is called Demodex Brevis. Most people have mites on their skin, and they don’t do any harm in the same way bacteria in your body don’t hurt you. When they get out of control though they can cause symptoms like mine. It happened because of how weak my immune system was. So, I knew one thing for sure after all of my research and it was that I needed another plan.
Fourteen years ago, when my son had terrible acne, I took him to natural medicine doctor and part of his treatment was parasitic cleansing. I had to make him a wormwood tea and he drank it twice a day. It was my best shot, so I started drinking the same tea and even washing my face with it. I also made a solution with blue tense and tea tree oil, and I was applying around my eyes every night. It started to feel a lot better, but I knew that my parasites were not gone, I was just getting some fantastic relief. 
 What I didn’t know until I looked more into it was that when these parasites die they release toxins into the body. If I killed all of them at once it might be too much for my body, so the treatment plan was to kill them slowly, do the detox and build my immune system back.  Before I moved to Canada I would do yearly parasitic cleansings, it was just a normal practice in Poland. 
Millions of people are affected by parasites and don’t even know it. They can cause a range of symptoms like itchy eyes for me, or even seizures for some people. You would be surprised by what you can find just by researching your symptoms a little bit online. I am not saying to avoid doctors and their advice. Just to also look into if natural products can help solve things where doctors will write you off like for me. After two months of treatments, I was better and on the road to building my immune system back up to how it was before.
I am not a doctor and not trying to give you any medical advice. I just wanted to share my story so that people know all of the options that are out there.
I follow Dr.Berg, he shares a lot of knowledge about how to treat any health issue with food and supplements.
In one of his videos, he mentions that after a traumatic experience or viral infection our body is inflamed and if we don’t do anything we might get another health problem because the inflammation will build up and cause the illness.
 Below I am going to list everything that I used on my journey from going horribly sick to feeling better than I ever have in my life.
