Hi. I am from www.yours-naturally.com. Can I suggest you try eating ginger or turmeric in high doses together with bittergourd/bittermelon? The ginger/turmeric helps with inflammation while the bittergourd purges the parasites/worms from your body.

Use the recommended remedies of your choice especially between 1 and 3 am when the filaria germs come into the blood. Drugs are very effective at the stated time period. Samuel A. Oluwalana, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria.

It is a tincture which is easily available in Homeopathy Shops. And first you take it for a month. Take 10 drops 2 times in a day. It prevents the abnormal growth of cells in the body and i guess, Elephantiasis is a result of excessive growth of cells. So give it a try.

The reason of Elephantiasis may be both, Either Genetics or caused by parasitic infection. It causes severe swelling in the arms and the legs. why don't you try Galium Aparine Tinture. Buy tincture and take 10 drops 3 times in a day. Also have Turmeric with black pepper.
