In part one of this series, you learned why we get so many negative parasite test results and how the ParaWellness Research Program helps people uncover their parasite problems. Now let us turn our discussion to the various ways and means of eliminating them.

A parasite is said to be any organism that requires a host for part or all of its lifecycle. Humans can be a host for many species of organisms. The degree to which our immune system can defend against them is one factor in determining the level of symptoms experienced. Another factor is the number of organisms present, how fast they reproduce and where they are located in the body. Parasites can be found in virtually any organ or tissue. They create havoc by direct tissue destruction leading to chronic inflammation and by the toxins they produce as waste products.

Parasites come in different forms. Protozoa are single celled organisms like the intestinal amoebas and malarial organisms. The multicellular organisms consist of roundworms, tapeworms and flukes. Yeast organisms when in excess can also be considered a parasite. The challenge is doing a proper investigation to discover the extent of the problem and then provide a thorough program of treatment.

In my practice of parasitology I come upon many people who have negative parasite tests in spite of visual evidence or suggestive symptoms. Often they have turned to over-the-counter “parasite cleanses”. These are generally herbal in nature, broad-spectrum in coverage and mostly ineffective. Some people have resorted to diatomaceous earth – a very harsh natural form of microscopic minerals that are like little razor blades that would hopefully cut the parasites to pieces. Unfortunately they also create microscopic abrasions and cuts to the delicate cells that line the intestinal tract as well as not being as effective as one would think in terms of parasite elimination.

Most parasites enter the body through contaminated water or food and sometimes through poor sanitation habits. Once inside they find the most hospitable location where they can grow and reproduce. It is imperative for a successful treatment outcome to know exactly what parasites are present, their numbers and their location. Then specific remedies can be formulated to target the problem. One must also take into account the age, health status and health challenges facing the person with the parasite problem.

Once this information is available there are options that need to be examined as far as treatment is concerned. One option is to do nothing and see what happens. I addressed this in part one of this series and reiterate that some people will have no symptoms and yet the parasite is methodically damaging tissue and creating inflammation. This would not be a health promoting option.
This leads to additional options: conventional prescriptive medical treatment or an alternative treatment. Both of these have the potential to eliminate parasites. Some people will have a preference for one or the other. Occasionally the nature of the parasite problem itself will dictate which way a person needs to go with treatment. The prescription option is best left out of this conversation as it would be a discussion between the individual and the prescribing physician. But I must say that in my experience I have seen quite a few people who were incompletely treated using prescriptions. This is partly due to the fact that the medications are somewhat toxic and cannot always be used in high enough doses or for a long enough time to eradicate certain parasites completely. One must also understand the potential side effects of prescription medication.

The alternative treatment option is what I use. Based upon after-treatment testing, I am happy to say that in most instances the initial parasites found have been eliminated. Over the years I have used many different types of alternative treatments including herbal remedies, homeopathics, frequency generators and various supplements with varying degrees of success. When I started my research program in parasitology in 2011, I wanted a new approach – one that would be even more effective using lower doses of natural remedies.

My wife Nancy is a clinical aromatherapist so I enlisted her help in researching successful parasite natural treatment options from doctors in other countries where parasite problems are rampant. We received a lot of helpful advice as well as recipes to use for various types of parasites. One aspect of treatment was emphasized by all of these doctors. It has to do with the cycles of the moon. As it was explained to us, the gravitational pull of the moon on all bodies of water on earth effects the activity level of living organisms by expanding or contracting the water within them. The water content in parasites expands as the moon goes from barely visible to a full moon. As this happens the parasites become more irritable and will increase their consumption of nutrients. Giving parasite remedies during this time results in more effective elimination using lower doses. This has become standard procedure in our treatment plan and it works!

For the clients that we supervise we have put together parasite specific formulations of essential oils and a specialized non-colloidal form of silver. Full directions are written out and we have a telephone conversation to answer questions and make sure that our program is going to work for that particular person. We do not use a general cleanse approach. The remedies are very specific to the type of parasite and the quantity we are dealing with. Treatment length is three months long in most instances and we time the taking of the remedies to the cycles of the moon during those months. This allows us to catch all the stragglers. The after-treatment testing has given us reassurance that we are doing a good job.

I want to include a message about the connection between parasites and cancer. I have yet to find a cancer patient who is parasite free. Partly this may be due to immune system dysfunction. Often the treatments for cancer depress circulating amounts of various immune cells and this could certainly lead to parasite infections. When we eliminate parasites from cancer patients they generally show improvement – some to a very significant degree. We also see positive changes in people with autoimmune disease and other degenerative diseases. Although I can’t prove this assumption, I feel that with parasite elimination we are freeing up the immune system to do its job elsewhere.

The goal of the ParaWellness research program is to provide a thorough examination for parasite activity and yeast overgrowth to those people who feel this is an important aspect of their health. I do all of the specimen preparations, staining and the microscopic examinations myself in order to ensure a careful and complete analysis.
