postheadericon That is Not Tumor, It’s a Brain Worm

 Lauren Cox from ABC News Medical Unit has posted another wonderful in-depth story. This time about a parasitic worm eating Rosemary Alvarez’s brain. Yes you read that right… eating her brain. Can you imagine anything as gross and disgusting as that?  Many more people that you would think have worms/parasites. This is one woman’s story and it is extremely well written:

By LAUREN COX

ABC News Medical Unit
Nov. 24, 2008
 

Late last summer, Rosemary Alvarez of Phoenix thought she had a brain tumor. But on the operating table her doctor discovered something even more unsightly — a parasitic worm eating her brain.

Alvarez, 37, was first referred to the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix with balance problems, difficulty swallowing and numbness in her left arm.

An MRI scan revealed a foreign growth at her brain stem that looked just like a brain tumor to Dr. Peter Nakaji, a neurosurgeon at the Barrow Neurological Institute.

“Ones like this that are down in the brain stem are hard to pick out,” said Nakaji. “And she was deteriorating rather quickly, so she needed it out.”

Yet at a key moment during the operation to remove the fingernail-sized tumor, Nakaji, instead, found a parasite living in her brain, a tapeworm called Taenia solium, to be precise.

“I was actually quite pleased,” said Nakaji. “As neurosurgeons, we see a lot of bad things and have to deliver a lot of bad news.”

When Alvarez awoke, she heard the good news that she was tumor-free and she would make a full recovery. But she also heard the disturbing news of how the worm got there in the first place.

Nakaji said someone, somewhere, had served her food that was tainted with the feces of a person infected with the pork tapeworm parasite.

“It wasn’t that she had poor hygiene, she was just a victim,” said Nakaji.

 

Pork Tapeworms a Small, But Growing Trend

“We’ve got a lot more of cases of this in the United States now,” said Raymond Kuhn, professor of biology and an expert on parasites at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. “Upwards of 20 percent of neurology offices in California have seen it.”

The pork tapeworm has plagued people for thousands of years. The parasite, known as cysticercosis, lives in pork tissue, and is likely the reason why Jewish and Muslim dietary laws ban pork.

Kuhn said whether you get a tapeworm in the intestine, or a worm burrowing into your brain can depend on how you consumed the parasite.

 

 

How Humans Get Worms

Eat the parasite in tainted meat and you’ll end up eating the larvae, called cysts. Kuhn said in that case, a person can only end up with a tapeworm.

“You can eat cysts all day long and it won’t get into your brain,” said Kuhn. Instead, the larvae go through the stomach and mature in the intestine.

“When it gets down into their small intestine, it latches on, and then it starts growing like an alien,” said Kuhn.

Once there, the tapeworm starts feeding and gets to work. A single tapeworm will release 50,000 eggs a day, most of which usually end up in the toilet.

“They can see these little packets pass in their feces,” said Kuhn. “And … sometimes people eat the eggs from feces by accident.”

Kuhn said it is then feces-tainted food, and not undercooked pork, that leads to worms burrowing into the brain.

Unlike the cysts, the eggs are able to pass from the stomach into the bloodstream. From there, the eggs may travel and lodge in various parts of the body — including the muscle, the brain or under the skin — before maturing into cysts themselves.

According to Kuhn, who has traveled to study this parasite, cysticercosis is a big problem in some parts of Latin America and Mexico where health codes are hard to enforce and people may frequently eat undercooked pork.

As people travel across the border with Mexico for vacation and work, Kuhn said so does the tapeworm. One person infected with a parasite, who also has bad hand washing habits, can infect many others with eggs.

“These eggs can live for three months in formaldehyde,” said Kuhn. “You got to think, sometimes, a person is slapping lettuce on your sandwich with a few extra add-ons there.”

 

Getting the Worms Out

Dr. Christopher Madden, an assistant professor in the University of Texas Southwestern department of neurological surgery in Dallas, has operated on a number of these cysts himself. He said not every worm needs to be surgically removed; those whose location is not an immediate threat to the patient’s health can be treated with medications that cause the worms to die.

But when the cysts are in problematic locations, as was the case for Alvarez, an operation is necessary. Fortunately, the long-term prognosis for most patients is positive.

“Most patients we see actually do very well with medicines and/or surgery to take out a large cyst,” Madden said.

Alvarez is not alone in accidentally eating tainted food, but Nakaji rarely sees cases so severe that people require surgery. Nakaji said he only removed six or seven worms in neurosurgery this year.

“But lodging in the brain stem is bad luck,” he said.

Nakaji said other parts of the brain have more “room” or tissue to expand around a growing cyst. However the brain stem, which is crucial to life, is only the width of a finger or two.

“She could have recovered,” said Nakaji. “But if the compression lasted for long enough, she could have been left permanently disabled or dead.”

postheadericon Parasites… Another Cause of Disease


Medical studies have estimated that 85-95% of the North American population has at least one form of parasite living in their bodies. There are more parasitic infections in the United States than in Africa. Chances are pretty good that you are in that percent and have a parasite living inside you. I found another great article .

Parasites Cause Disease and Are More Prevalent Than You Think

Parasites are probably the most unsuspected cause of disease among human beings. Medical studies have estimated that 85-95% of the North American population has at least one form of parasite living in their bodies. There are more parasitic infections in the United States than in Africa.

A parasite is an organism that lives off the host (human body). It obtains food from the host and contributes nothing to its welfare. Some parasites harm their hosts by causing irritation and interfering with bodily functions, while others destroy tissues and release toxins into the body. Parasites range in size from microscopic to several feet long, and there can be over 100 different types of parasites living in the human body. A female parasite can release 3,000 to 200,000 eggs per day depending on their type. They live and breed inside your intestinal tract, but they can infect the lungs, liver, brain, muscles and joints, blood, skin, sinuses, and eyes. An ABC News special in November 2008 reported on a woman who underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor. However, during the surgery, neurosurgeons found a parasitic worm that was eating her brain.

Parasites can also live in the body for many, many years. In 1979, a British study done on 600 former prisoners from World War II, who had been stationed in the Far East, found that 15% were still infected with a parasite that they had contracted during the war.

Parasites are a major cause of disease. They secrete toxins and steal vital nutrients from our bodies which can create an extremely stressed immune system; they can cause physical trauma by perforating the intestines, circulatory system, lungs, liver, brain, and, in general, the whole body; they can erode, damage or block certain organs by lumping together in balls, and have been mistaken for cancer tumors; they depress the immune system; and they can destroy cells faster than cells can be regenerated.

Giardia is the most prevalent intestinal parasite in humans, and is found in drinking water. Malaria is caused from a bite from a parasite-infected mosquito. (According to the World Health Organization, malaria kills nearly 2 million people and infects 400 to 500 million each year.) Arthritis can be caused by microscopic parasites getting into your joints and eating the calcium linings of your bones.

Symptoms will be very similar to a number of different diseases or ailments. Some of the common symptoms are constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, sleeplessness, restlessness, depression, irritability or mood swings, allergies, prone to disease, weight gain, skin conditions, blurred vision, bad breath, worsening memory, and lack of concentration. Other conditions of parasitic infection could be acid reflux, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, migraines, and even heart disease and cancer.

There are many ways you can get parasites – contaminated foods (uncooked meats and unclean fruits and vegetables), contaminated water (especially in lakes, rivers and streams), poor hygiene, pets, inhaling dust (can contain dried forms of parasites) and blood sucking insects (mosquito). And guess what else? Contaminated food handlers have been found to be the biggest culprits in the transmission of parasites.

There are practical ways to prevent parasitic infections. The most effective way is to practice good personal hygiene – wash your hands several times a day. Wash all fruits and vegetables, thoroughly cook meats and fish, drink pure water, keep your living environment clean, and de-worm your pets. Also, avoid high carbohydrate, low protein diets, and sugar (parasites love sugar).

If you think you may have a parasitic infection, initially, the best way to begin to eliminate parasites is to cleanse your colon in conjunction with a parasite cleanse. Parasites can’t live in a healthy colon

postheadericon Learn How And Why Parasite Infections Are On The Rise

I have recently posted several articles about parasites.  The post were not only about how disgusting they are but also about how many people may actually have parasite and don’t even know it.

The following article has just been posted by Kate Freer. The post goes into great detail not only about why parasite infections are on the rise but also WHY….. you can read Kate Freer article below.

Parasitic Infections Are Dramatically Rising

NOTE: I am not claiming in any way that Morgellons is Parasites, just how uniformed doctors are. Walk into a doctors office and tell them you think you have parasites and they’ll ask what countries you’ve been too. Meanwhile America has more live stock in their own homes than any other country in the world, and any animal that must be dewormed is livestock, just because it’s been trained to poop outside so you can then go and pick it up doesn’t mean it’s not livestock.

Parasitic Infections Are Dramatically Rising in America.
Learn How and Why This Could Be So
It is Estimated that 90% of Americans Are Infected with Parasites
Story by Kate Freer

 

paraMost Americans would not even entertain the thought that they could have parasites.Worms infesting their gut and intestines, certainly not me. Only poor people who live in 3rd world countries have parasites. We live the American dream and worms in our intestines is not a possibility. I am afraid that is not true. It is a great health threat that you need to learn about.

Why would Americans have parasitic problems? Parasites are in every aspect of our environment including the food, soil and water we drink. They are found in every economic level but more so in poorer communities. There are 150,000 different kinds of parasites. There are only a few that have standard tests to identify the infestation. The parasites are usually discovered during surgery when the failed organ is opened. The shocked surgeons find on examination, parasites infecting the tissue.

Who is most at risk for parasitic infections: All of us! It has been estimated that 90 percent of the North American population has at least one kind of worm in their intestine. Many doctors now feel that parasite infections may be the causative factor in many disease states. People who are living in poorer communities are of greater risk but anyone no matter what economic status can have parasites. You may not think you have any risk for parasites so I ask you to read the rest of this article.

Do you have a dog or cat you sleep with? You are at high risk for roundworm infection. Most dogs and cats do have roundworms. Is is not a good idea, health wise, to sleep with your pets. I know I am treading on a sensitive subject but it is true. You put yourself greatly at risk for parasitic infections when you sleep with your pets.

Do you eat raw fish? Parasites especially a certain kind of roundworm (Anisakis worms) are found in uncooked or undercooked fish. Its damage in the organs can be fatal. There is a lack of FDA inspectors so only 10 percent of fresh fish are inspected at all. That inspection cannot tell if the fish is infected with parasites. They can only be seen by microscope. There is no way to know if the raw fish you are eating is safe. Fish you catch yourself will have parasites too.

Do you drink tap water? In1992 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the cities water was infected by the Cryospidium parasite. The symptoms were flu like. When the stool samples came back, it was a deadly parasite that adheres to the small intestine. There were hundreds sick and 101 people died. The water supply to one whole area of the city was shut down for two weeks. It was the worst parasitic outbreak in history. How many people may have had milder symptoms, never going in to the doctor, so went undiagnosed? They would continue to have the parasites multiplying in their gut until great damage was done. This is not the only parasite that is found in water supplies.

Do you eat food? Most of you have to answer yes to that one. One of the worst cases of parasite infections came from Americans eating organic raspberries that came from out side the US. These raspberries had been watered with sewage water and were contaminated with a certain kind of parasite. There were a lot of sick people with that one incident. How much of our food is imported from other countries. Even if it is grown here, there can be parasites on the food you eat.

Highly respected doctors and researchers support this article and its stand on the parasitic problem in American health.

Physicians and researchers include: Dr. Ross Anderson, a specialist in parasitic infections; Dr. Peter Wina, Chief of Patho-Biology in the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research; Dr. Bernard Jenson, the father of Iridology in the U.S.; Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the National Institute of Health; and others.

Common parasites found in human intestines:

Pork Tape Worm (Taenia Solium): You are infected by eating uncooked or undercooked pork or by handling raw pork. Many cases have shown up from individuals eating at a fair or event. The pork looked cooked but was undercooked. The larvae enter the body then form cysts in various parts of the body including the brain. This can cause brain seizures and death. This happens more often than you think here in the United States.

Round Worms: The WHO in their report says that one billion people are infected with round worms. These parasites get to over 15 inches long and can lay 200,000 eggs each day. These worms can cause intestinal blockages which may eventually impair the liver, kidney, and pancreas. Symptoms can include rashes, stomach pain, asthma, eye pain and more. Your symptoms will depend on the organ or tissue that is infected.

Pin Worms: This infection is found commonly in children. The CDC states that in some countries the infection rate is as high as 61 percent. Children often get them playing in the dirt. Often there are no symptoms except itching in and around the anus. Children have a high rate of parasite infection due to their play habits and the fact they don’t wash their hands when they should.

Giardia Parasite: The most common intestinal parasite in humans. You can get infected from contaminated food, water, or soil. In advanced cases, it coats your whole lower intestines. This coating prevents you from absorbing the nutrients from the food you eat. Symptoms may include stomach cramps, diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, and chills.

Whip Worms: Looks like a whip and infects more than 500 million people. The eggs from this work are found in dry goods such as rice, beans, and grains. This worm can lay over 10.000 eggs per day. This worm causes blood loss that will lead to anemia.

Hookworms: A microscopic worm that borrow into the body until they get to your small intestine. They then suck your blood through your intestinal wall. This damages the intestinal wall causing blood loss leading to anemia. In advanced cases this worm can get into the heart tissue leading to death. Dog feces often carry hookworms. That is why many beaches do not allow dogs. If you frequent dog parks and beaches with bare feet or lie on the beach where dogs are allowed, you may be at risk for hookworm infection. There are not a lot of symptoms that go with this worm until there is real damage to your intestine or heart.

In Dr. Hulda Clark’s book, The Cure For All Cancers, she states that certain seizures are caused by the Ascaris roundworm getting into the brain; Brain cancer and other cancers are often caused by parasites; certain mental disorders can be caused by parasites; Asthma can be caused by the roundworm, Ascaris, that infect the lungs; Diabetes can be caused from the pancreatic fluke that infects cattle and their meat; Migraines can be caused from the thread worm, Strongyloides; and the dog heart worm, Dirofilaria can infect the human heart as well.

Preventive Measures: Use gloves when cleaning up animal manure; Use gloves when gardening; do not go with bare feet on beaches where they allow dogs; wash your hands after taking care of your pets or livestock; Use filtered water in your home; wash all your fresh food even if it says its pre-washed; Wash your hands afterward; Use gloves when preparing raw chicken and meat;

Herbal Cleanses: There are herbs such as black walnut, wormwood, cloves, and garlic that kill parasites. It is a good idea to give yourself an intestinal cleanse at least twice a year. Realize that any cleanse may cause nausea, headaches, or some stomach upset. These strong herbs are killing parasites in your intestines, gut, and in the bloodstream. Ask your herb store for help in selecting a herbal combination to kill parasites. A cleanse should be carried out for 60 to 90 days so that both the adults and eggs are destroyed. You should worm your pets at the same time. After you do so, have the carpet cleaned and the pets sleeping quarters cleaned. If they sleep on your bed, dry clean your comforter.

What’s Eating You? 8 Terrible ParasitesBy LAUREN COX and (@DanChildsABC)

June 11, 2010
 

A year and a half after traveling abroad, one might think he’s free and clear of infection.

But a 25-year-old man in California headed to the emergency room last year with a burning feeling and something squiggling under the white of his eye.

Doctors at the Highland General Hospital Department in Oakland, Calif., immediately started investigating what creature had decided to make its home under the man’s skin. They reported on their discovery in the June issue of the Annals of Emergency Medicine and kept his identity anonymous.

postheadericon Parasites Affect Poor Americans

As if poor Americans didn’t have enough to worry about.. now they can add “parasites” to that list. Study finds that roundworms may infect close to 1/4 of inner city black kids… How scary and sad too. You can read the article below.

Parasites affecting poor Americans

Roundworms may infect close to one-fourth of inner city black children, tapeworms are the leading cause of seizures among U.S. Hispanics and other parasitic diseases associated with poor countries are also affecting Americans, a U.S. expert said Tuesday.

Studies show many of the poorest Americans living in the United States carry some of the same parasitic infections that affect the poor in Africa, Asia and Latin America, said Dr. Peter Hotez, a tropical disease expert at George Washington University and editor in chief of the Public Library of Science journal Neglected Tropical Diseases.

postheadericon Parasites In The News

A new report out of Washington says  Diseases caused by worms and parasites are draining the health and energy of the poorest Americans.
Topics in the report are:
~~’Diseases of neglect’ stem from lack of care, poor sanitation
~~Roundworm parasites infect 14 percent in U.S.
~~Increased threat after Hurricane Katrina

You can read the report below ..

(Original source: Reuters (from msnbc website- www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25352442/ ) – 6/24/08)

Worms and parasites afflict the poorest in U.S.
‘Diseases of neglect’ stem from lack of care, poor sanitation, report says

WASHINGTON – Diseases caused by worms and parasites are draining the health and energy of the poorest Americans, an expert said on Tuesday.

And “diseases of neglect” associated with the developing world, such as dengue fever and Chagas disease, may become a bigger problem for the United States as the climate changes, said Dr. Peter Hotez of George Washington University and the Sabin Vaccine Institute in Washington.

“The message is a little tough because they are not killer diseases — they impact on child development, intellectual development, hearing and sometimes even heart disease,” Hotez said in a telephone interview.

He said the diseases help to keep people mired in poverty, as infections may last years, decades or even lifetimes.

“Throughout the American South during the early twentieth century, malaria combined with hookworm infection and pellagra (a vitamin deficiency) to produce a generation of anemic, weak, and unproductive children and adults,” Hotez wrote.

The parasitic diseases are having similar effects now, he said.

Hotez reviewed nine diseases affecting at least 10 million Americans for a report in the journal Public Library of Science Neglected Tropical Diseases, which he also edits.

“These diseases occur predominantly in people of color living in the Mississippi Delta and elsewhere in the American South, in disadvantaged urban areas, and in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, as well as in certain immigrant populations and disadvantaged white populations living in Appalachia,” he wrote.

They include ascariasis, the most common human worm infection. It is caused by a parasitic worm that lives in the intestine, and infected just under 4 million people in 1974 according to the last survey, in the South and Appalachia.

Roundworm parasites infect 14 percent in U.S.
Toxocariasis, a roundworm parasite transmitted in dog droppings, infected up 2.8 million poor black children living in inner cities, the South and Appalachia, Hotez said. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates these roundworms, which can cause intestinal illness and blindness, infect up to 14 percent of the U.S. population.

Strongyloidiasis is caused by a threadworm that lives throughout the body and infects 68,000 to 100,000 people. It may cause a hyper-immune reaction in some people.

Cysticercosis caused by the pork tapeworm and giardiasis, a diarrheal illness caused by a one-celled parasite, are also common, Hotez said.

One threat to babies is cytomegalovirus, which infects 27,002 newborn annually, causing deafness and mental retardation.

“It’s amazing what we tolerate,” Hotez said. He noted the United States spends $1 billion a year preparing for outbreaks of diseases that have not occurred, including smallpox, anthrax and avian influenza.

“But these (other) diseases are occurring among voiceless people,” he said. “It’s an unintended form of racism in a sense. We need to make these disease household words.”

Increased threat after Hurricane Katrina
Chagas disease, caused by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, infects as many as 8 to 11 million people in Latin America and may become a U.S. threat, Hotez said. “In Louisiana, almost 30 percent of the armadillos and 38 percent of the opossums are infected with T. cruzi, and a case of Chagas disease was recently reported in post-Katrina New Orleans,” he wrote.

The report also noted that flooding and poverty in Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Katrina have created conditions where viral diseases can thrive.

“In the coming decade, global warming and increased flooding in the region could combine to promote dengue and Chagas disease epidemics among the poor in Louisiana.”

Dengue, carried by mosquitoes, can sometimes cause a deadly hemorrhagic fever and has been reported in Texas.

Better sanitation, piped clean water, improvements in housing as well as better testing and medical treatment could help curb these “diseases of neglect,” says the report.

postheadericon The Silent Killers Not Spoken About.. Parasites

I have been reading many articles lately about all of the wonderful things that diatomaceous earth is used for.  I have always said that it is good for everyone and everything. It is an all natural product. One of the uses is to get rid of parasite. It may surprise you to know that many people have parasites living inside of them.

I eat my dirt daily and I also give it to my cats and dogs.  It is good to know that controlling parasites is just one of the many benefits that it offers.

Here is a very interesting article about those creepy disgusting things called parasites. Yes I itched when I read it. I bet you will too.


PARASITES – THE SILENT KILLERS
By Harry Elwardt, N.D., Ph.D.

The famous, Dr. Zoltan Rona, author of many books and newspaper columns writes:
“The incidence of parasitic disease in North America is skyrocketing because of increased
international travel, contamination of the water supply (remember a few years ago what a
water-borne parasite did to 400,000 people in Milwaukee) and the overuse of chemicals,
mercury and prescription antibiotics.  Tapeworms, hookworms and a long list of amoebae
are far more common in the North American population than conventional medical experts
led the population to believe.

In 1991, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research staff stated that we have a tremendous
parasite problem right here in the United States.  It is just not being identified.  Other
medical studies show that as high as 85% of the adult population has one or more types of
parasites.  Some authorities feel this figure may be as high as 95%.  The World Health
Organization estimates that almost one billion people have hookworms.  That’s about one
in five of the earth’s entire population and it is not a third world country problem as many
people believe.  Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the
National Institute of Health says:  “In terms of numbers there are more parasitic infections
acquired in this country than in Africa.”

The purpose of this report is not to scare you, but to enlighten you as to the severity of the
problem and what you can do to protect yourself and your family.

WHAT IS A PARASITE?

A parasite is any live organism that grows inside your body.  There are two basic
categories of parasites, large and small.  The large parasites are easy to see with the
human eye, can weigh several pounds and can grow to several feet long.  The longest
parasite can be caught from eating fish and is appropriately named a fish-tapeworm; a
mature adult can reach an incredible 30 feet in length.  The small parasites are
microscopic in size.  It makes no difference which type of parasite you have; all can cause
serious illness and death.

The parasite is an organism that lives off the host and the host being you or me.  The
parasite lives a parallel life inside our bodies, feeding off our own energy, our own cells or
food we eat.  Parasites are even feeding off the health supplements we use, thus greatly
diminishing their effectiveness.  Humans can play “host” to over 100 different kinds of
parasites.  Contrary to popular belief, parasites are not restricted to our colon alone, but
can be found in other parts of the body; in the lungs, liver, muscles and joints, esophagus,
brain, blood, skin and even the eyes.

You are probably wondering how these creatures can live inside our bodies without our
awareness?  “The answer to this is simple,” writes Dr. Ross Anderson, one of America’s
foremost parasitic infection specialists.  “The purpose of a parasite is not to make itself
known.  A smart parasite lives without being detected because if it is detected, of course,
something is going to be done to eradicate it.  If you think parasites are stupid, think
again.  They are highly intelligent organisms.  Not intelligent in the same way as humans,
but they are intelligent in their ability to survive and reproduce, which is of course the
purpose of any organism on this planet.”  It would also be important to note the incredible
rate at which parasites can reproduce.  For example, a female hookworm can lay 10,000 to
25,000 eggs at one time, a round worm is capable of laying 200,000 eggs a day and the
fish-worm mentioned above, can lay an incredible one million eggs.

Approximately 30% of parasites reside in the digestive system.  The other 70% are located
throughout the body in the bloodstream, muscles, bones, various organs, including liver
and pancreas, sinus cavities, eyes and even the brain.

HOW DO YOU BECOME INFECTED?

Sources of parasites are many.  Blood transfusions may carry parasites from the donor to
the recipient of the transfusion.  Insects, such as mosquitoes and cockroaches, sometimes
carry parasitic larvae, which can infect humans or animals when they bite us or
contaminate our food.  You can also catch parasites by walking barefoot in infected places
such as public beaches, showers, parks, or even in sandboxes in which children play.

The quickest way for parasite larvae to enter our bodies is through contaminated foods,
improperly washed fruits and vegetables and insufficiently cooked meats.  Highest
concentrations of parasites are found in commercial pork products (bacon, ham, hot dogs,
cold cuts, pork chops, etc.) beef, chicken, lamb and even fish are contaminated.  All meats
should be well cooked in order to kill parasites.

Avoid old food, even one-day old.  The older the food, the more infested it can become.
Old food can become parasite infected if it is sitting out for even a short period of time.

There is another very sure way of contracting parasites, and that is from our pets.  Most
pets are hosts to several kinds of parasites, and their eggs are spread into the
environment frequently through their stools.  From their stools they end up in their coats,
from where we humans get infected through petting, hugging, kissing the animals or even
through the air.  This is especially dangerous for young children who frequently, you could
say, “love their pets a lot more unconditionally” than do adults.  The risk is also increased
for pregnant women or those whose immune system is already weakened.

Finally, parasites can be transferred through shaking hands or the exchange of body fluids
from sexual contact or from saliva in the mouth.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PARASITES IN HUMANS?

What tell-tale signs must we find that would indicate parasites in our bodies?  The possible
symptoms are almost endless.  Ann Louise Gittleman, the author of “Guess What Came to
Dinner!” mentions the most wide-spread symptoms of parasitic infections.  These
“intelligent” creatures are sometimes so clever that they can mask their presence through
some of the most common diseases around.  Symptoms include:

•        Itchy ears, nose, anus or even any constant itchy sensation anywhere or all over
your body.

•        Constipation:  Some worms, because of their shape and large size, can physically
obstruct certain organs.  Heavy worm infections can block the common bile duct and the
intestinal tract, making elimination infrequent and difficult.

•        Diarrhea:  Certain parasites produce a prostaglandin, which creates sodium and
chloride loss that leads to frequent watery stools.  The diarrhea process in parasite
infection is thus a function of the parasite, not the body’s attempt to rid itself of an
infectious organism.

•        Gas and Bloating:  Some parasites live in the upper small intestine where the
inflammation they produce causes both gas and bloating.  Persistent abdominal distention
is a frequent sign of invaders.

•        Irritable Bowel Syndrome:  Parasites can irritate, inflame and coat the intestinal
cell wall, leading to colitis, diverticulosis and even colon cancer.  Fecal matter backs up in
the colon, as much as 10 to 50 pounds and many times more.  It is poison toxic waste, but
great food for parasites.  Diverticulosis means toxemia (accumulation of toxins in the
blood), toxemia means food for parasites, and parasites mean cancer.

•        Joint, Muscle Aches and Pains:  Parasites are known to migrate to encyst
(become enclosed in a sac) in joint fluids and worms can encyst in muscles.  Once this
happens, pain becomes evident and is often assumed to be caused by arthritis.  Dr. Roger
Mason wrote an article entitled, “The Causation of Rheumatoid Disease.”  In this article, he
stated that a specific type of parasite called indolimaxnana is a cause of rheumatoid
arthritis and causes a whole host of muscle and joint-related health problems.

•        Anemia:  Some varieties of intestinal worms attach themselves to the mucosa lining
of the intestines and then rob vital nutrients from the human host.  If they are present in
large enough numbers, they can create enough blood loss to cause a type of iron
deficiency or pernicious anemia.

•        Allergy:  Parasites can irritate and sometimes perforate the intestinal lining,
increasing bowel permeability to large undigested molecules.  This can activate the body’s
immune response to produce increased levels of eosinophils, one type of the body’s fighter
cells.  The eosinophils can inflame body tissue, resulting in allergic reaction.

•        Skin Conditions:  Intestinal worms can cause acne, hives, rashes, weeping eczema,
and other allergic-type skin reactions.  Cutaneous ulcers, swelling and sores, itchy
dermatitis and a number of types of lesions can all result from protozan parasite invasion.

•        Granulomas:  Granulomas are tumor-like masses that encase destroyed large
parasites or parasitic eggs.  They develop most often in the colon or rectal walls but can
also be found in the lungs, liver, pertioneum, and uterus.

•        Nervousness:  Parasitic metabolis wastes and toxic substances can serve as
irritants to the central nervous system.  Restlessness, anxiety, manic depression and other
mental disorders are often the result of a systemic parasite infestation affecting the brain.

•        Sleep Disturbances:  Multiple awakening during the night, particularly between 2
and 3 a.m., are possibly caused by the body’s attempts to eliminate toxic wastes via the
liver.  According to the traditional Chinese medicine, these hours are governed by the
liver.  Sleep disturbances are also caused by nocturnal exits of certain parasites through
the anus, creating intense discomfort and itching.

•        Teeth Grinding and Clenching:  Bruxism – abnormal grinding, clenching, and
gnashing of teeth – has been observed in cases of parasitic infection.  These symptoms
are most noticeable among sleeping children.  Bruxism may be a nervous response to the
internal foreign irritant.

•        Chronic Fatigue:  Chronic fatigue symptoms include tiredness, flu-like complaints,
apathy, depression, impaired concentration, and memory problems.  These physical,
mental and emotional symptoms can be caused by parasites which facilitate malnutrition
resulting in improper absorption of proteins, carbohydrates, fats and especially Vitamins A
and B-12.

•        Immune System Dysfunctions:  Parasites depress immune system functioning by
decreasing the secretion of immunoglobulin A.  Their presence continuously stimulates the
system response and over time can exhaust this vital defense system, leaving the body
open to bacterial and viral infections.

•        Diabetes:  The pancreas exhausts itself trying to produce enough enzymes to
destroy the influx of parasites.  The general wearing down of the pancreas wears down the
Islets of Langerhans and of course, their ability to produce insulin, causing diabetes.

•        Excess Weight:  Parasites can throw our appestat (appetite mechanism) off
balance and nothing on earth can help us lose weight.  When the large intestine is
compacted with encrusted fecal matter, we cannot eliminate properly.  Because of this
build-up over time, we get protruding stomachs, carrying around pounds of waste.  This of
course leads to autointoxication.  If you are healthy, you should have bowel elimination for
each meal you eat.  Three meals should be matched by three bowel movements.

Intestinal build-ups cause re-intoxication of our bodies.  This is made to order for
parasites.  The large intestine can be a major nesting ground for parasites.  According to
Dr. Bernard Jensen, the father of Iridology in the U.S. and foremost expert in colon
research and therapy:  “The average person over 40 has anywhere between 5 and 25
pounds of build-up in their colons.  Parasites of all sizes thrive in this indisposed residue of
fecal matter, slowly but surely toxifying the whole body.”

The build-up of parasites in the large intestine causes gross stomach enlargement,
stretching muscles thereby causing sagging stomachs.  When we do clean out our
digestive systems, particularly the large intestine, we lose considerable weight and inches.
Our stomachs become flat.

When we are very toxic from fecal matter build-up, we crave more toxins.  This means that
when we eat a lot of junk food, we crave junk food.  A junk food or heavily cooked food diet
brings on more parasites and even greater craving for more junk food.

Parasites are a major cause of obesity since they deprive the body of the proper nutrients
and leave us only empty calories as leftovers.  The body also starts craving more and
more food as it is starved for ever-so-needed vitamins and minerals.

•        Cancer:  According to Dr. Hulda Clark, in her ground breaking book, “The Cure for
All Cancers”, claims that most cancers are caused by the “fasciolopsis buskii” parasite and
that every single one of her patients with cancer had parasites.  Once Dr. Clark eliminated
their parasites, incredibly the tumors also disappeared.  In the book, she further claims it is
the ingestion of “innocent” and widely used home chemicals that actually cause the
hatchings and the migration of parasites out of contained areas (such as the stomach) into
the liver and other glands, causing cancer.  It is simply our individual biochemistry plus the
strength of our immune system at any given time that explains why some people get
degenerative diseases while other do not.

•        Other:  The following conditions may also be tell-tale signs of parasitic invasion:
excessive hunger, asthma, bad taste in mouth and bad breath, epilepsy, migraines, male
sexual dysfunction (such as impotence), slow reflexes, Crohn’s or Candida, pain in and
around the naval area, blurry vision, numbness of the hands or feet, burning sensations in
the stomach, and kidney or heart problems.

THE PARASITE SOLUTION

The majority of parasites are found in the colon.  According to the Royal Academy of
Physicians of Great Britain, 90% of all disease and discomfort is directly or indirectly
related to an unclean colon (due to the impacted fecal matter).

The Academy identified 36 different kinds of poisonous substances that form in the large
intestine.  These toxins are absorbed by the bloodstream and have a detrimental effect on
the body.

The legendary Dr. Paul Bragg, an author of many bestsellers about the importance of
internal cleansing and the originator of America’s health-food stores, always stressed that
being “internally clean” is a lot more important than being “externally clean”.

“We all take showers at least once a day to keep our bodies externally clean and yet
constantly neglect to clean our insides on a regular basis.  People are constantly hurting
themselves by eating inappropriate foods and promoting the creation of toxins and colon
build-up in their bodies, which can only be taken out by natural cleansing process.”  Dr.
Bragg is the best example of his own teachings.  He died at the age of 96 in a tragic
accident, while engaging in his favorite hobby, surfing.  When the doctors performed an
autopsy, they discovered that his body was almost equivalent to that of an 18-year old.  He
was exceedingly healthy and strong right up to his tragic death.

Another well-known proponent of regular internal cleansing is Dr. Brian Carpenter, who
says that we must clean the built-up fecal out of colon, in order to avoid self-poisoning.  If
we don’t take the appropriate steps to rid our colons of this build-up and the parasites that
set up home there, then we are actually allowing our bodies to get more and more toxified
with each passing day.  When the body is trying to absorb nutrients through the colon,
which is backed up, it is actually absorbing poisonous fecal matter.  Toxins also block
enzymes and nothing in the body functions properly without enzymes.  Now we are starting
to get a better view of why 90% of all diseases start in the colon, because toxins are the
cause of diseases plus the lack of proper nutrition on a cellular level.

Medical facts reinforce Dr. Carpenter’s views, since today in North America, the third
most common reason for hospitalization among 15-44 year olds are digestive disorders.
Between the ages of 46-65, digestive problems become the second most common reasons
for hospitalization.

No matter what your age, you can restore your quality of life and health if you are
determined to do so.  Your body will respond!

CLEANSE THE COLON

Stewardship’s cleanse product has ingredients, which are specially formulated to work as a
natural herbal way to expel parasites from your body.  This product should be taken daily
for at least 90 days to make sure you eliminate all the eggs, larvae and adult parasites.  I
recommend taking CleanseForLife™ every day for prevention once you eliminated the
parasites.  I also recommend having a colonic done to clean out your colon and cleanse
some of the buildup off the colon wall where parasites take refuge.

CleanseForLife™ also contains fiber, which should contain soluble and insoluble fiber
which will: Fiber will:

1.        Stimulates the colon to release and eliminate refuse that has built up in the system
2.        Absorbs toxins and eliminates them out of the system
3.        Adds probiotic microbes (good bacteria) to the colon which will kill harmful bacteria
and boost the immune function in human cells causing them to produce more anti-bodies
and other substances.  This will help establish, nourish and maintain the natural flora,
which is vital to a healthy digestion system.

VITAMIN C restores colon health and re-establishes peristalisis.  Eliminates constipation
and effectively absorbs and transports harmful toxins from the body.  Works synergistically
to detoxify and reclaim health.

COLLOIDAL SILVER is nature’s antibiotic.  All harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa,
and parasites are killed within minutes of contact with silver.  Parasites are also killed while
in their egg stage.  It is tasteless, odorless and non-toxic.

MSM offers relief from constipation, de-toxifies the body, controls acidity in stomach and
ulcers, coats intestinal tract so parasites lose their ability to hang on and much more.

WASH HANDS

Parasites can be transmitted through shaking hands and petting animals, so wash your
hands frequently.

CONCLUSION

Parasite cleansing is both preventive and curative.  Quality of life, especially after age 50,
can only come with responsibility for your own health.  You are responsible or you would
not be reading this report.  I commend you on your due diligence, but don’t stop here, take
the next step and clear your colon of the toxic waste build-up and parasites, watch what
you eat and supplement daily to give your body the proper nutrients it needs to rebuild a
more vibrant and healthy you.

postheadericon The Secret World of Parasites

I have found the most interesting article about parasites. It made me itch and by the time I was done reading it I felt as though something was crawling all over me.
The article is entitled…..Silent Killers, The Secret World of Parasites by Joseph Sterling 

This article no doubt will shock a lot of people. But shock will probably be one of the more pleasant symptoms that one will experience. One thing is for sure: this informative report should not be read while eating or immediately before or after a meal. However, the importance of carefully examining this subject is not highly recommended but could be as vital to many people as life and death. I am of course referring to the parasites that lurk in the human body and how detrimental they are to our health and well being. It’s unavoidable that this topic will cause disgust and queasiness in many of us, which is probably the result of the taboo imposed on the topics of such less than glamorous aspects of our lives.

Hopefully the following quote will help unmask this taboo once and for all:
“I believe the single most undiagnosed health challenge in the history of the human race is parasites. I realize that is a pretty brave statement, but it is based on my twenty years of experience with more than 20,000 patients.” (Dr. Ross Anderson, One of America’s foremost parasitic infection specialists.)

I would probably have remained as ignorant to this subject as most people, had it not been for one of my co workers, a nutritionist who decided to make her “life mission” to introduce me to the world of parasites. My first reaction was probably similar to that of any other “normal” person: “Please leave me alone, you and your parasites,” I said to her indignantly, “Because I don’t want to lose my appetite for no reason. We don’t live in a Third World country, but in one of the most sterile and most developed societies in the world, where we don’t have to worry about such things.”

Later, however, my opinion changed quite drastically (as to why, you’ll find out shortly). My great interest in proper nutrition, disease prevention, and alternative medicine, coupled with my co workers insistence that certainly piqued my curiosity about this largely unexplored topic, propelled me toward doing more research on this subject. I began perusing piles of books along with dozens of articles written by  various doctors and experts on this subject. I spent many nights searching the rambling channels of the Internet, hungry for information.

As I started acquiring all this knowledge, I grew more and more determined, being an editor of a health newsletter to share these facts with my readers, even though this is no the sort of topic I would normally discuss openly. I felt that this information is vitally important and could improve the health of many and, in some worst case scenarios, even save their lives.
I strongly advise our readers not to toss this article aside, simply because they think that they can’t stomach the subject or because they feel it doesn’t apply to them! By the time you reach the end of this article, you will realize that this information is essential for you and those you care about. In any case, as amazing as it seems, statistics show that 8-9 out of 10 of us are infected with parasites. It will also become quite apparent that this phenomenon is much more widespread than most people in the U.S. think.
“Make no mistake about it, parasites are the most toxic agents in the human body. They are one of the primary underlying causes of disease and are the most basic cause of a compromised immune system.” (Dr. Hazel Parcells, D.C.,N.D., Ph.D.)
To find out what a parasite is, we turn to one of America’s foremost parasitic infection specialists, the afore mentioned Dr. Ross Anderson. “A parasite is an organism that lives off the host, the host being you or me. The parasite lives a parallel life inside our bodies, feeding off either our own energy, our own cells, or food we eat. Parasites are even feeding off the health supplements we use, thus greatly diminishing their effectiveness.”
“In recent medical studies it has been estimated that 85% of the North American adult population has at least one form of parasites living in their bodies. Some authorities feel this figure may be as high as 95%.”
Humans can play “host” to over one hundred different kinds of parasites, ranging from microscopic to several feet long tapeworms. Contrary to popular belief, parasites are NOT restricted to our colon alone, but can be found in other parts of the body; the lungs, the liver, in the muscles and joints, in the esophagus, the brain, the blood, the skin, and even in the eyes!

HOW CAN YOU BECOME INFECTED?
The famous Dr. Zoltan Rona, author of many books and newspaper columns writes: “The incidents of parasitic disease in North America is skyrocketing because of increased international travel, contamination of the water and food supply (ed.: do you remember a few years ago 400,000 people in Milwaukee, almost half of that cities population, fell sick due to a water born parasite which made it’s way into the city water supply?) and the overuse of chemicals, mercury and prescription antibiotics….. Tapeworms, hookworms, and a long list of amoebae are far more common in the North American population than conventional medical experts have led the population to believe… Parasites are found in highest concentration in commercial pork products (bacon, ham, hot dogs, cold cuts, pork chops, etc.). Beef, chicken, lamb, and even fish are contaminated.”
Obviously this is not good news for any society that typically consumes a lot of meat and meat products. For example, the pork tapeworm can infect us if we consume sausage, ham, bacon, or other pork products. We tend to think that tapeworms can only infect our intestines, yet the tapeworm’s larvae can actually be found in our central nervous system, muscles, and even in the heart, eyes and brain.
“In terms of numbers, there are more parasitic infections acquired in this country than in Africa.” (Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the National Institute of Health)
If you later view the pictures of the various and often extremely long parasites (see parasites link) you probably wonder how such beasts could live inside our bodies without us being aware of them? “The answer to this is simple,” writes Dr. Anderson. “The purpose of a parasite is not to make itself known. A parasite lives without being detected because if it is detected, of course, something is going to be done to eradicate it. If you think parasites are stupid, think again. They are highly intelligent organisms. Not intelligent in the same way humans are, but they are intelligent in their ability to survive and reproduce, which is of course the purpose of any organism on this planet…”
So how can a parasite exist in the body without making it’s presence known? In fact, many people are indeed aware of them. If you know how to read your body and how to interpret its signals, then the presence of a parasite can be determined quite easily by many people. However, if you accept that it’s normal to have low energy levels and health challenges, that it’s normal to have skin rashes, pains, frequent colds, flu and constipation ( the list of things parasites can cause is very long) then you may never know whether you have parasites.”
Dr. Thomas J. Brooks writes in his book The Essentials of Medical Parasitology: “Tapeworms are among the oldest parasites of the human race. Indeed, some species have become so well adapted to life in the human intestine, that the host (man) may be entirely asymptomatic.”
The traditional method for checking for parasites is examining the stool. Unfortunately, this test is frequently unreliable. The only way to detect parasites in a stool is if the eggs are noticed under a microscope. If, however, the parasite living in your body did not lay eggs during that period, it’s presence can go undetected. Some doctors recommend 3 stool samples taken at different time periods, but unfortunately this isn’t always enough either, since parasites don’t always have regular “egg laying schedule.”
It’s also important to note the incredible quantity of eggs of which parasites can lay. For example, a female hook worm can lay 10,000 – 25,000 eggs at a time. The pictured round worm can grow up to sixteen inches long (40 cm) and is capable of laying 200,000 eggs PER DAY. The longest can be caught from eating fish and is appropriately named a fish tape worm; a mature adult can reach an incredible 30 feet (9 meters) in length and can lay 1,000,000 eggs.
“We have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the U.S., it is just not being addressed.” (Dr. Peter Wina, Chief of the Patho-Biology in the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research)
What telltale signs might we find that could indicate parasites’ presence in our bodies? The possible symptoms are almost endless. Some of the most widespread symptoms are listed below. These “intelligent” creatures are sometimes so clever that they can mask their presence through some of the most common diseases around. That is why so many nutrition experts recommend doing a parasite cleanse to all those suffering from every day ailments that traditional medicine was not able to address.

COMMON SYMPTOMS OF PARASITES IN HUMANS

CONSTIPATION: Organs can actually be blocked by the presence of worms, particularly those of larger size. Normal elimination may no longer occur when worms block the common bile duct and intestinal tract.

GAS AND BLOATING: Many parasites make their home in the small intestine. In fact, gas and bloating can often be a red flag for parasite invasion, which causes the inflammation and irritation of that region of the colon. Distention, bloating, gas, and other symptoms can appear in various degrees for many months or many years if the problem is not properly addressed.

DIARRHEA: Diarrhea itself may, in fact, be an actual function of an invading parasite. Some parasites, especially protozoa, produce a hormone like substance which depletes the body of chloride and sodium, resulting in watery and frequent stools.

PAINS OR ACHES IN THE BACK, JOINTS, OR MUSCLES: According to a 1998 book The Parasite Menace and the American Medical Association, doctors correctly diagnose a disease only 16% of the time and the average laboratory diagnosis correctly about 20%. For example, it’s not uncommon for parasites to become enclosed in a sac within joint fluid. Worms have been known to do the same in muscle tissue. As a result, there is pain, which may be frequently mistaken for arthritis, or other joint disorders. Pain and swelling may also occur due to the body’s immune system responding to the presence of parasites, or from tissue damage due to irritation by parasites.

IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME: Gastrointestinal symptoms, caused by parasites disrupting the condition of the intestinal cell wall, can lead to malabsorption of important nutrients, especially essential fats. These fats, used by our bodies to run smoothly and efficiently, are vital for optimal body functioning. Many people assume that chronic digestive problems, pains in the stomach, fatigue and other vague symptoms are just something you have to live with, however, many of these problems can indeed be caused by parasites living within.

ALLERGIES: Irritation and breakage of the intestinal lining due to parasitic activity can increase bowel permeability to undigested food. This can result in the body’s increased production of eosinophiles (a type of dense cells in the body). These cells can inflame tissue and cause an allergic reaction. That’s why those who have allergies often have high levels of eosinophiles.

EATING MORE THAN NORMAL BUT STILL BEING HUNGRY, ITCHY EARS, NOSE, UNPLEASANT SENSATIONS IN THE STOMACH, ETC.: These are often associated with other diseases. But can also be a sign of a severe parasite infestation. Other possible symptoms of parasites are: problems with the menstrual cycle in women, lips dry during the day and/or moist at night, sexual dysfunction, and even bed wetting.

NERVOUSNESS OR GRUMPINESS: Your nervous system can easily be irritated by the parasites’ metabolic waste and toxins resulting in anxiety, agitation or restlessness, and cause people to be moody, nervous, grumpy, easily upset or impatient. Perhaps that is why after completing a parasite cleansing program, many people swear that their persistently grouchy relatives or friends have become a lot more pleasant and patient. Maria Callas, a legendary opera, was overweight, had skin problems and mood swings. After discovering she had tape worms and getting rid of them, her skin problems eased, she lost weight, and her temper significantly improved.

CHRONIC FATIGUE, LETHARGY OR APATHY: Improper absorption of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and other nutrients and vitamins can result when parasites rob these from our bodies or cause intestinal damage. Several physical and mental symptoms of chronic fatigue or general weakness can result. These include lack of concentration, difficulty with memory, feeling lethargic, weak or sluggish, lack of motivation, apathy, depression, slow reflexes or flu like symptoms.

VARIOUS SKIN PROBLEMS: Protozoan parasites can cause a variety of skin conditions, including acne, swelling, sores, ulcers, lesions, dermatitis, cutaneous leishmaniasis (leishmania), skin rashes, hives, weeping eczma, and more. Further more, in this day and age of widespread international travel it’s easy to pick up parasites while traveling or from those traveling to the U.S.

PROBLEMS SLEEPING: When the body eliminates metabolic and toxic wastes (including those produced by the parasites) through the liver, restlessness and awakenings can occur during the night resulting in problems in sleeping. Two other possible symptoms of parasites presence are excessive yet un refreshing sleep and a strong urge to nap during the day.

NUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES AND ANEMIA: Intestinal worms can leech essential nutrients from our bodies when they attach themselves to intestinal lining. If their numbers are sufficient, they can create a severe iron deficiency called pernicious anemia which is also linked to a deficiency of vitamin B-12 (deficiency of B-12 can also be caused by a parasite infestation in the body).

IMMUNE SYSTEM PROBLEMS: Giardia and other parasites can significantly reduce the production of immunoglobulin A, our bodies major source of sercretory antibodies, and thus can depress our immunity. Over time, by wearing down the immune system in this manner, parasites can seriously inhibit the bodies ability in battling viral and bacterial infections. A healthy and well functioning immune system is our key to staying healthy and disease free.

TOOTH GRINDING OR CLENCHING: According to “Parasites: An epidemic in disguise”, 25% to as many as 90% of the children of the U.S. have pin worms. Many have other kinds of parasites. One condition, most noticeable in children, bruxism -or unconscious grinding, gritting or clenching of the teeth during sleep -has been observed in some people with parasites. This can be a nervous system response to the presence of parasites and it’s effect on the body.

EXCESS WEIGHT, FORGETFULNESS, BLURRY OR UNCLEAR VISION AND SO ON: The following may also be tell tale signs of a parasitic invasion: weight gain, excessive hunger, weight loss or loss of appetite, asthma, bad taste in the mouth and bad breath, diabetes, migraines and as incredible as it may sound, even the biggest killers: heart disease and cancer.
Some of the experts are quite cautious about this subject and will only  acknowledge a “possible” link between parasites and these diseases. Other doctors, like the much quoted Dr. Hulda Clark, in her ground breaking books “The Cure for All Cancers” and “The Cure for All diseases” claims that most cancers are caused by the “fasciolopsis buskii” parasite and that every single one of her cancer patients had parasites.
Although the doctor’s point of view is based on hundreds of well documented case histories, her skillfully argued view can be considered by some to be controversial. Yet some of us may wonder at this point why all the worlds doctors are presumably trying to find a way to help prevent  cancer and heart disease if the answer is simpler than we think.
The politics of disease treatment is a hotly debated subject and a topic of many future articles. We recommend to our readers by Dr. James P. Carter, M.D, Ph.D., “Racketeering in Medicine: The Sup-pression of Alternatives” which clearly demonstrates, with the help of mountains of evidence, how the pharmaceutical and medical establishments try to systematically deny Americans bona-fied therapies by dismissing them as quackery and persecute and discredit alternative medicine, doctors, and health care providers. They stand to lose large profits built into the prescription drugs, surgeries and other expensive solutions, and they know it.
The quickest way for parasite larva to enter our bodies is through contaminated foods, improperly washed fruit and vegetables, and insufficiently cooked meats and fish:
“I was working on the fishing boats; my captain was of Norwegian descent, and would always get a little salmon and dry it out and offer me chunks of this fresh salmon. I would refuse. Several years later he came in to see me at my practice, and I found out that he had passed a 20 foot and 8 foot tapeworm. He also mentioned that for years he had diarrhea, digestive upset and heartburn, and by passing these worms he had cleared all that up.” Dr. John Matson from “What’s Challenging your Health.”
There is another very sure way of contracting parasites, and that is from our pets. Most pets are hosts to several kinds of parasites, and their eggs are frequently spread into the environment through their stools. From their stool, they end up in their coats, whence we humans get infected through petting, hugging, kissing the animals or even through the air. This is especially dangerous for young children who frequently, you could say, “love their pets a lot more unconditionally” than adults do. The risk for pregnant women or those whose immune system is already weakened is also greater.


THE NEGLECTED COLON

The majority of parasites are found in the colon. Homeopaths, naturopaths and, now, even physicians all agree: “90% of all disease or discomfort is directly or indirectly related to an unclean colon (due to impacted fecal matter)” Royal Academy of Physicians of Great Britain.
The Academy identified 36 different kinds of poisonous substances that form in the large intestine. These toxins are absorbed into the blood stream and have a detrimental affect on the body.
The legendary Dr. Paul Bragg, an author of many best sellers about the importance of internal cleansing and the originator of America’s health-food stores, always stressed that being “internally clean” is a lot more important than being “externally clean”.
We all take showers at least 1 or 2 times every day to try and keep our bodies externally clean and yet we constantly neglect cleaning our insides on a regular basis, which, in many ways, is far more important to health than external cleaning. “People are constantly hurting themselves by eating inappropriate foods and promoting the creation of toxins and colon build-up in their bodies, which can only be taken out by natural cleansing processes.” Dr. Bragg is the best example of his own teachings. He died at the age of 96 in a tragic accident while engaging in his favorite hobby, surfing. When the doctors performed the autopsy, they discovered that the condition of his body was almost that of an 18-year-old man. He was exceedingly healthy and strong as a bull right up to his tragic death.
Another well known appropriate proponent of regular internal cleansing is Dr. Brian Carpenter who says that, “we must clean the built-up fecal matter out of our colon, in order to avoid self-poisoning. If we don’t take the appropriate steps to rid our colons of this build up, and the parasites that set up home there, then we are actually allowing our bodies to get more and more toxified with each passing day. When the body is trying to absorb nutrients through the colon, which is backed up, it is actually absorbing poisonous fecal matter. Toxins also block enzymes and nothing in the body functions properly without enzymes. Now we’re starting to get a better view of why 90% of all diseases start in the colon, because toxins are the cause of diseases plus the lack of proper nutrition on a cellular level.”
Medical facts  reinforce Dr. Carpenter’s views: Today in North America the third most common reason for hospitalization among 15-44 years old are digestive disorders. Between the ages of 45-64, digestive problems become the second most common reason for hospitalization (self toxification increases with age).
Not only colon build-up but parasites can also be a major cause of weight gain.
According to Dr. Bernard Jensen, the father of iridology in the U.S. and a foremost expert in colon research and therapy, “the average person over 40 has between 5 and 25 pounds of build-up in their colon. Parasites of all sizes thrive in this indisposed residue of fecal matter, slowly but surely toxifying the whole body.”
Many of our readers already know how unhealthy colon build-up is. Unless eliminated promptly, the food in our bodies tends to putrefy and poison our systems. Now we see that it is also wonderful breeding ground for all sorts of parasites.
What’s interesting is that parasites, given this colon build-up, end up receiving the best nourishment possible. They gratefully indulge in the most nutritious parts of a person’s diet, leaving only crumbs for the host. This may be why so many people don’t notice an improvement in their health, despite a healthy lifestyle and vitamin supplementation. A healthy diet without a prior and thorough internal cleanse is significantly less effective than it could be. Dr. Donald Kelly, a leading expert in weight management had this to say on the subject: “parasites are a major cause of obesity since they deprive the body of the proper nutrients and leave us only empty calories as leftovers. The body also starts craving more and more food as it is starved for the ever so-needed vitamins and minerals.”
