Tapeworm & Milk Bath Remedy

by pb

Hello Patty!

I am looking for a solution how to get rid of a tapeworm and that is how I came across your website.
I have a couple of question about your milk bath post.
Does the tapeworm come out all by itself or it comes out a bit and it will have to be pull out? That thought is keeping me awake and I would rather sleep ;)
You wrote that the worm dies in the milk but how long does it take for that to happen? and once the worm is out what do I do with it, where is the best place to dispose of it?, the toilet? the garbage? burn it?
Thank you so much in advance for your answers. I tried finding some of this answers online but didn't come across anyone sharing this further thoughts about the "experience"
Have a nice day!

When you say you need to be patient, how long would be expected?

Are we taking multiple hours?

Tapeworm Disposal
by: Grandma

Hello PB,

The first thing I have to tell you is that I am very sorry that it has taken me so long to answer your questions. I put myself on an extended leave due to family members getting very ill and one death.

When dealing with a tapeworm it isn't easy and can really play on your nerves. I've never had to deal with one myself but have known people that have and used this recipe and it was a huge success. By now you may have discovered the answers you were looking for but I'll still try to answer your questions, just in case.

First of all, this takes a lot of patience. When soaking in the bathtub of milk you have to remain very still and let the worm find its way out and it's a very slow process. The worm will expel itself completely into the milk and drown. Once in the milk you can actually get out of the tub and walk away for awhile. As far as how to dispose of it, that depends on its size. Some are really small, others can be unbelievably large. A small one you can just flush down the toilet but if it's pretty large I'd suggest you throw it into a plastic bag and into the garbage, or bury it somewhere.

Again, I'm sorry if you have had to wait for these answers, I hope by now things were taken care of and all was an easy ordeal for you to go through.
