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
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?
If 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?
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.
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.
