Infections What They are and What Can Be Done About
by Garcia Thompson
In todayís society there
are many forms of disease, many of which are well documented,
researched and acknowledged. However, there is one plague
currently infecting over 80% of all Americans (and 85% of people
around the world) that receives little or no attention in
todayís medical society Ė the one of parasites and parasitic
infections. Yes, it is a documented fact that almost every adult
in the United States is not only susceptible to, but is also
currently hosting some form of internal parasite. Disgusted?
Appalled? Disturbed? Sickened? Those words all described how I
felt when I first came to read those statistics. You might ask
yourself why I would have been reading about this subject (trust
me, not something Iíd do in my idle time, normally!) However,
after a month long bout with debilitating fatigue and chronic
gastrointestinal pain, coupled with several unhelpful visits to
the doctor, I did a little research into what may be causing my
symptoms and creating this discomfort. Hereís the information I
found, which hopefully may help anyone out there to overcome,
eliminate and defeat these silent attackers.
So how do you know if you
have a parasite - well, finding out can be difficult, but there
are some signs to looks for. Although most everyone feels low at
some point or another, going to bed early or sleeping in late,
this is not something that should be normal (still, for many
folks this is a regular routine.) Chronic fatigue is one of the
main symptoms of a parasitic visitor in your body - some other

Realize that although you may
not feel ill or tired, there may still be parasites within your
system. Parasitic infections are masters at hiding while feeding
off the human body. So, how can you tell? You can try to take a
medical test, but as Dr Andersen (a leading authority on
parasitic infections) has said:
you were tested by a doctor for parasites, chances are the
results would come back negative. Does this mean you do not have
parasites? Unfortunately, medical testing procedures only catch
about 20% of the actual cases of parasites. Over a 1,000 species
of parasites can live in your body and tests are available for
approximately 40 to 50 types. This means, doctors are only
testing for about 5% of the parasites and missing 80% of those.
This brings the clinically found parasites down to 1%. Now, if I
had a 1% chance of winning in the stock market, I donít think I
would invest. Only 1% of parasites are ever clinically found.
I went through a medical test
that cost me $400, was sent to a "top lab" for the detection of
parasites, and still was diagnosed as negative (yet after a few
cleanses I have been flushing infections, toxins and parasites
from my body daily.) So, although there is a chance the lab test
will catch the infection, the likelihood is that it won't. (the
major problem is that the parasites must not only be on the
"list" the lab looks for, but also must be laying eggs when the
samples are taken.)
This leads me to explain about
the way parasites reproduce, live and thrive, as well as to give
a brief description of the two major types:
Letís try to understand what a
parasite does. A parasite eats, lays eggs and secretes. Ok?
Letís break this down into the three parts: the first is "eats."
Depending on the kind, parasites will eat different things. Many
thrive off certain types of food, from dairy to sugar to
proteins. These parasites live off the food that goes into your
body. Mainly found in the digestive tract, they can also be
found in the liver as well as throughout the body. No organ
within your body is immune to parasites, in reality. Some
parasites actually get their nutrition directly from the cells
of the body, and feed off those cells, thus making you sick.
They can literally attach themselves anywhere and suck nutrition
out of the cells. These parasites are perhaps the most dangerous
because they can travel to places in the body where they can do
a lot more damage than a parasite living solely in the digestive
Parasites rob you off all your
finest nutrients and you get the scraps and leftovers. They grow
healthy and fat while your body starves for nutrition. And these
visitors can subside and exist in the human body for anywhere in
the upwards of 10, 20 or even 30 years.
illustrate the longevity of parasites in the human body,
consider this example. In 1979 a British study reported on 600
former prisoners from World War II. These men had been stationed
in the Far East. Thirty years after the war, 15% were still
infected with a parasite called Strongyloides that they had
contracted during the war. This means you could have eaten meat
10 years ago that was contaminated, and still be hosting the
tapeworms or other types of parasites that were in that meat.
Letís now look at the way
parasites reproduce - this is the "lays eggs" part. To start,
letís examine the two main types of parasites and then discuss
how each reproduces: Large parasites are visible and are
primarily worms and small parasites, which are mainly
microscopic in size, include what are called protozoa and
Which is more dangerous?
Despite their almost invisibility, small parasites can be
extremely dangerous. Microscopic parasites can destroy calcium
lining in your bones, eat the myecin lining off your nerve cells
(causing breakdown of the brain-nerve connection) and even
inhabit the liver, colon and other areas causing major
discomforts and problems. The small parasites reproduce by
duplicating themselves in a manner similar to bacteria or viral
Large parasites, which are the
worm type, can usually be seen by the naked eye. Sizes can
exceed 15 inches long and normally these worms cannot/do not
travel past the digestive tract. The smaller organisms, the
protozoa and amoebas, tend to act like a bacteria by traveling
through the blood stream to virtually any part of the body. They
reproduce without laying eggs and behave more like an infection
in the body than do the larger parasites. The larger parasites
are worms which reproduce by laying eggs. Eggs are left in the
intestinal tract, where they cling to the intestinal walls among
the feces, and when they hatch, the young feed on the food that
we eat and eventually grow into adults. The adults then repeat
The third thing that parasites
do is secrete toxins. Simply put, the secretions from parasites
in our bodies are poisons and toxins that our bodies are forced
to deal with by increasing the process of detoxification. Anyone
who has experienced food poisoning or dysentery will tell you
how debilitating these toxins can be. These are intense and very
high levels of toxins being released into the body at once. On
the other end, a chronic parasitic infection that secretes low
levels of toxins can eventually create an extremely stressed
immune system. When the immune system is stressed over a long
period of time, it weakens. When the immune system "goes off
line," our bodies become susceptible to infections of other
kinds. This can be extremely dangerous in this day and age
because we are more exposed to more viruses than ever before.
Also, the viruses are changing and adapting at a very fast rate
as are the bacteria, many of which are now resistant to
antibiotics and other artificial measures that are used to
In addition, the antibiotics
of today as well as any other drug of tomorrow can have a
slightly different than intended effectÖagain, I will let Dr
you have established that you do have parasites, taking drugs to
get rid of them may not always work. This is because a drug will
often drive a parasite from one organ of the body to another.
Itís like people moving to better climates to make their living
conditions more pleasant, or birds flying south for the winter.
So, if we aren't able to
combat the rising number of parasitic infections with
conventional medicine, it is even more important to understand
just how we can go about that process. First, let's look at
what parasites do and how we sometimes unknowingly "help" them.
Parasites tend to secrete toxins as they live within the human
body, which, when coupled with other toxins (like alcohol,
cigarettes, junk food, polluted air, etc) can lead to what is
termed by many doctors as "toxic overload." Toxic overload
comes about when the four primary cleaning systems of the body
have been pushed too far by an overload of toxins in the body.
Within the four cleaning
systems, the lungs, kidneys, skin and bowels, there are many
types of overload that can occur. As an example, toxins will
travel from one system to another as the current system gets
overloaded. In toxic bowel syndrome, the excess of toxins in
the bowels pass onto the liver and the liver becomes over
clogged and the toxins begin to spill into the bloodstream.
This can take a long time or can occur very quickly, depending
on how the body and its immune system handles the overload.
Parasites have an ability to cause a complete system breakdown,
making them one of the most dangerous epidemics facing medicine
For the time being, the news
isn't going to get much better, I'm afraid. Not only do 80-85%
of all American adults have some form of parasite, not only are
they hard to diagnose, not only can they cause serious damage
internally (and often silently for a long period of time) they
also come in many forms. From here, you can read about the
different types of parasites, or you can skip to "How Do We Get
Here are a few of the
different types of parasitic worms the body can acquire and be
plagued by - for more complete and in depth analysis of the
types of worms found within the human body (complete with
pictures,). The following section is taken from the article
"Are you Clear of Parasites?" By Dr Andersen, wherein he cites
"The Essentials of Medical Parasitology," by Dr. Thomas J.
The fish tapeworm
is the largest of the human tapeworms, reaching the
length of 33 feet or more. There can be 3,000 to 4,000
segments in one worm. It can produce more than 1,000,000
eggs a day. This type of infestation can cause anemia
because of interference with vitamin B12, says Dr.
Brooks in his book. Also, the weight challenges of some
people can be directly attributed to tapeworms. This is
especially true of weight loss programs that donít work.
The person may be hosting a tapeworm which is eating all
the food and making the person constantly hungry.
Tapeworms can also cause water retention. Besides
tapeworms from beet, pork and fish, there is also a type
of dog tapeworm you can get when dogs lick your face or
Pinworms are very
infectious and can cause a lot of itchiness in the anal
area. "The worms deposit their eggs mostly at night,
contaminating pajamas and bed linen," writes Dr. Brooks.
"The eggs are readily transported through the air, and
it is not uncommon to find them in every room of the
house....Complications are much more common in women
than in men" . Pinworms can also be found in the vulva,
uterus and fallopian tubes because the female worm loses
her way while trying to return to the anus after
depositing her eggs.
Another type of
roundworm that can be present in humans is whipworms.
These insidious creatures actually inject a digestive
fluid which converts the colon tissue into liquid which
the worms sucks up. Dr. Norman Stoll, a former worm
expert at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical
Research, estimated that the roundworm infects about 644
million people in the world. This was in the 1940s and
there are no doubt a lot more people infected with
roundworm now! Dr. Brooks believes nutritional
deficiencies are seen in heavy roundworm infections.
Hookworms bite and
suck on the intestinal wall, which can cause bleeding
and necrosis (death of the tissue). In severe
infections, iron deficiency becomes a therapeutic
problem because of all the iron that is lost to the
hookworm. Dr. Brooks says that, "hemoglobin levels as
low as 15% of normal have been seen in patients with
severe, long-standing hookworm disease. One species of
hookworm in America is called "Necator Americanus,"
which means, "American Murderer."
Again, these are just a few
types of parasites found within the human body, the list is much
more extensive, but these are the most common. So, now we know
what parasites do, how they reproduce, what damage they can
cause and some of the types we can be infected with. So, that
leaves the thoughts - "how do we catch parasites?" and "how do I
get rid of these invaders?" First, let's go over how we catch
parasites, and then we can more fully and knowledgeably discuss
how to get rid of them.
How Do We Get
Parasites can get into your
system in many ways, some of them seemingly innocuous enough on
their own. Anything from shaking hands to sharing somebody
elseís soda can - from kissing (even on the cheek) to intimate
sexual contact and believe it or not, you can even pick up
parasites by inhaling dust which contains the dried form of
these organisms. You can get parasites from a variety of foods,
especially undercooked red meats (and yes, I consider pork to be
a "red" meat.) You can get parasites from many strains of water
(giardia being the most common form of water borne parasitic
infection.) You can even get parasites from unwashed or
mishandled lettuce and other vegetables. No one is immune to
the scourge of parasites. So, I think you'll agree, parasites
are actually fairly easy to "catch."
The really discouraging thing
about parasites is that they can not only be hard to get rid of,
but also that you can easily be re-infected. Married couples
tend to have them together; and when one person is treated for
the parasitic infection, they are often re-infected by their
spouse. It is extremely important that both be treated at the
same time, and in many cases, the children should be treated
along with their parents. Not only that, but it is important to
be sure to stay on whatever cleansing program you take for at
least the recommended time period and to NOT miss a single
dosage. Parasites live because they are tenacious and stealthy

am healthy. I donít have parasites". One lady claimed this and I

vibrant health, get rid of the parasites". I challenged her and
she decided to try the product. After only two days on the
product, she noticed a poking sensation in her lower abdomen and
felt a wiggling sensation in one of her legs. The next day she
passed an 8 inch worm and since then, has passed many different
sizes and types of parasites. Remember, most parasites are not
noticeable to the human eye. To overcome this major challenge in

UNSUSPECTED CAUSE OF MANY DISEASES

According to the American Medical Association, physicians
correctly diagnose a disease 16% of the time - that's one out of
six! A 'scientific' laboratory, (Medical University) will
diagnose correctly almost 50% of the time - or one out of two. A
physician might not be likely to connect an illness to a
person's predilection for undercooked meat or hot dogs.
At a California Medical Association meeting, one expert speaker
told his professional audience that worms are the unsuspected
cause of many diseases.
As a known cause of overweight conditions, the worms are being
well fed, while the body is only getting calories, water and a

The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta has warned about the
rise of fish tapeworm in America. We eat meat and fish not

the air which may contain worm eggs.
A seven-year-old boy had picked up a worm infestation from his
pets. He slept with his animals. He suffered from constant
fatigue, was bloated, and had a problem focusing in the

kept out of his bed and an intestinal cleansing conducted. In
one week the boy was out playing and appeared normal.
A woman with a recurring breast infection improved after being
rid of a roundworm infestation.

kills parasites through abrasion.
Dr.Kelley says that supplements digest the worms; you don't see
them come out; you just feel better. Knowing farmers have been
using diatomaceous earth for years to stay on top of parasitic
infestation with their farm animals. They simply mix this
natural mineral-laden soft rock phosphate with meals and the
problem treats itself. Proof of the puddin' is dull hair. Dull
hair in animals or humans means one should suspect intestinal
worms. Dr. Kelley suggests everyone should occasionally 'worm'
oneself. It's simply a matter of taking supplements for at least
30 days. The gestation length for Mrs. Worm is about 22 days.
Thousands of babies every 22 days, plus all their excreting
piles up into problems. That's why we should not miss one day of
the simple 30-day program. Then it's over.
Stop kissing your dog, or cat, or gerbil, or ...
MOST PEOPLE KNOW that dogs and cats can transmit diseases by
scratches and bites, but few people realize that close contact,
including nuzzling, kissing and handling animal fur can cause
serious illness and even death.
According to the Western Journal of Medicine (150:208-210), a
46-year-old man recently died from a form of pneumonia that he

How do you get them?
One of the quickest ways for parasitic larvae to enter your body
is through contaminated, improperly washed or cooked foods.
Being around animals can also easily lead to problems. Even
walking barefoot can lead to infestation. Drinking contaminated
