Most 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.
