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.

Just a quick word

All of my crawling has stopped again, I’m back in my bed and off the couch and things are normal again.

However, when I got home yesterday my wife said a neighbor gave us a chair. Well, I nearly went ballistic because the people who gave us the chair have pets, the chair was in the garage within 10 seconds and won’t be coming back in the house, ever.

You don’t have to agree with me on this but Pet’s are a real “no no” with Morgellons. Take a look at this post I noticed today: http://lymebusters.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=rash&action=display&thread=14129 

Cat’s are especially known carriers of fungal infections such as ringworm and more. All dogs and cats are carrying parasites, parasites that infect humans as the recent CDC study has shown. I will not go into the home of a person that has pets or even ride in any vehicle but my own for the very same reason. When I deviate from that plan the crawling inevitably starts. For what it’s worth …

I pray she gets better quickly, she has already realized that dwelling on Morgellons and surfing scary forums makes it worse so she’s already got a lot going for her …

Morgellons – A Message to Pet Owners

dog So, you have pets and you also have Morgellons, what are the odds of that? Although the real numbers aren’t known it is thought that there are 80 million cats and an estimated 74 million dogs in America. Those are pretty shocking numbers really and my guess is the real numbers are actually higher. This post is probably not going to sit well with pet owners, but the truth must be told. However, if your a Morgellons sufferer with pets you’re going to benefit from reading this post.

CDC Reports Prevalence Of Worms Transmitted By Dogs And Cats To Humans Is Higher Than Previously Understood

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/87767.php

About 14 percent of the U.S. population is infected with Toxocara, or internal roundworms, contracted from dogs and cats. That’s according to the results of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study announced at the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in Philadelphia.

So, the CDC estimates 14% of Americans are infected with a few species of parasites from cats and dogs. That’s more than 1 out of 10 Americans. It looks like America’s love affair with pets is finally coming home to roost. An this should be no surprise, after all, the 150+ million pets are crapping all over America’s back yards and that crap is loaded with parasites. I wonder if pet owners ever think …

Do I really want to bring an animal into my home that I have to deworm? Am I foolish enough to believe that these worms only infect dogs and cats?

BUTTSCRATHERDOGIf pet owners did ponder such questions maybe they wouldn’t let them sleep in their beds, lay on their couches, and laugh the next time see they see them drag their butt across the carpet to get relief. This is no different than having hogs living in your house.

Also, if you know anything about testing for parasites (in the United States at least) it’s like looking for a needle in the haystack, they can barely detect them at all. So if they found 14% you can bet the number is not only higher but also there are likely far more varieties of parasites lurking in your home, in your gut, and in your children’s bodies. Here’s another quote from the story.

Although most persons infected with Toxocara have no apparent symptoms, this infectious agent is capable of causing blindness and other serious systemic illness, which makes it a public health issue."
While rare, the visual impairment most often affects children. Since toxocariasis is not a reportable infection, true numbers of cases of visual impairment and other syndromes are not known, according to Schantz.

But don’t worry America, parasites are only in third world countries. However, if you are lucky enough to hunt down one of a handful of parasitologist in the United States to obtain help the first question they will ask you is “Where have you traveled?” That alone should be your clue that they themselves have no clue.

 

Morgellons and Pets

So many with Morgellons have pets, and they often state that their pets are also itching and scratching like crazy, and even very sick, sometimes they even die. I can tell you from experience that even though I am symptom free if I enter the home or even ride in the car of a person who has pets (without pets even being present) my crawling and biting will return for two or three days before I can beat it back and get back to normal. So if you have Morgellons and have pets I believe you have a major carrier constantly re-exposing you. You have two choices; get rid of the pets, or heal them. At the very least you should keep them outside at all times unless it is unsafe to do so (to hot or cold).

I have also noticed that there are a high number of former vet tech’s with Morgellons. I still think one must carry a heavy candida load and be very acidic to come down with the Morgellons condition. I have children and wouldn’t hesitate the slightest bit to take my dogs to the humane society in order to protect my children. I have gone to extremely great lengths to keep them safe from this. Thank goodness, however, that we are not pet owners.

 

So What Can Pet Owners Do?

dinovite

I heard advertisements on the radio a few years ago from a company called DinoVite. The commercials were full of customer testimonials from dog owners with dogs that had horibble skin conditions, itching, smelled terrible, sores, and so on, and after DinoVite they were back to normal with excellent shiny coats. I wasn’t even a pet owner but those commercials really stuck with me. I had Morgellons at the time I heard those commercials. I actually went to the DinoVite website and checked out the ingredients, see the list below:

 

Dinovite ® Original Canine
Ground flax seed, dried kelp, yeast culture, ground grain sorghum, fructooligosaccharide, zinc methionine complex, diatomaceous earth, montmorillonite clay, yucca schidigera extract, dehydrated alfalfa meal, Aspergillus oryzae fermentation product dehydrated, Aspergillus niger fermentation product dehydrated, Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product dehydrated, Lactobacillus casei fermentation product dehydrated, Bifidobacterium thermophilum fermentation product dehydrated, Enterococcus faecium fermentation product dehydrated.

 

If only we as humans ate so well, diatomaceous earth, montmorillonite clay, flax seed, all kinds of wonderful probiotics. That sounds pretty good, and according to the testimonials it works. I’m not surprised because they are using the same approach that I have used on myself, fixing the bio-terrain. And these were folks who spent a fortune going from vet to vet to vet, sound familiar? These testimonials aren’t full of folks saying we did this or that anti-parasitical and that cured my dog. I’m sure they tried all those techniques, but an excellent diet with supplements that target the pets terrain is what accomplishes the task. That list is very alkalizing by the way, including the alfalfa.

Hopefully America will rethink it’s love affair with pets as the tragedy of Morgellons unfolds. No doubt opinions are going to change and America is going to realize we are not the chosen ones after all, and indeed, we are infected with parasites of all kinds just like the rest of the “normal” people. I wonder who has the stronger delusions, me, or your typical parasitoligist?

In the meantime, if you have pets, I think DoniVite could play a major role in your pets recovery and subsequently your own by eliminating constant exposure. I have no association with DinoVite at all. I do feel their approach is the right approach, and I believe the testimonials as well.

 

Coming Soon

I have been asked to post a “Poor Mans Protocol” for us humans based on my terrain post. I know many of you have very little money and have burned through what you had trying to find a cure for Morgellons. I do believe you can become symptom free as I have done, but it’s not immediate, however, it does work. Next week sometime I will be posting a detailed “Poor Mans Protocol” that you find very useful. I’ve been taking very little this past month and am still symptom free, you can get there too. I’m hoping some of you will try this scaled down simple, cheap, natural, healthy protocol and report your findings, so watch for that post next week.
