(Parasitic Animals in Humans)

DISEASES AND INTERNAL PARASITIC ANIMALS IN HUMANS

Good parasitologist expert can diagnose up to 50 different kinds of parasites.

You are suppose to live with those one that your expert can't diagnose, or is unable to successfully treat...
NOT all animals inside human body are always parasitic! Sometimes, they live in symbiosis with their host!

"It is estimated that pinworms infect more than 400,000,000 people throughout the world (10% of humans), and in many areas of the world (e.g., North America and Europe) it is the most common nematode parasite of humans.On a world-wide basis, however, Ascaris lumbricoides ranks #1 infecting more than 1,000,000,000 people (25% of humans).

"Ascaris Lumbricoides has a world-wide distribution and is most prevalent in tropical areas. 25% of the world population harbors the parasite. "

Ascaris lumbricoides is one of the largest and most common parasites found in humans.The adult females of this species can measure up to 18 inches long (males are generally shorter), and it is estimated that 25% of the world's population is infected with this nematode.The adult worms live in the small intestine and eggs are passed in the feces.A single female can produce up to 200,000 eggs each day!About two weeks after passage in the feces the eggs contain an infective larval or juvenile stage, and humans are infected when they ingest such infective eggs."

Fasciola hepatica is found in parts of the United States (view distribution), as well as in Great Britian, Ireland, Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, Africa, and Australia.

Can I get tested for parasites?

There are only few laboratories in the USA, that we know of, which are competent to diagnose the presence of some parasites in the feces and in the intestines. BUT, not the presence of all species of parasites. Recognizing microscopic parasitic eggs in the feces is much harder job then finding bacteria, yeast or virus.  "Good" labs are:

  1. Meridian Valley Labs.
    24030 132nd Ave. SE
    Kent, Washington 98042
    (800) 234-6825
     
  2. Great Smokies Labs.
    18 A Regent Park Blvd.
    Asheville, North Carolina 28806
    (800) 522-4762

You might also find a competent physician in your area by contacting these labs for that information.
It is generally cheaper and easier to do herbal or Coenzyme Q10 parasites cleanse, then to diagnose the presence of parasites in the feces. If you do have worms, parasites cleanse will get them out, and that is the best diagnoses. Don't bother sending specimens to local laboratories.


Ascaris Lumbricoides, large roundworm of humans, is the most common nematode parasite of humans, infecting an estimated 1.47 billion individuals. Pathology can result from pneumonia caused by the worm's migration through the lungs, blocking of the gastrointestinal track or the bile or pancreatic duct. Ascaris Lumbricoides is physically indistinguishable from Ascaris suum.

What are the symptoms of internal parasites?

Possible signs and symptoms of internal parasites:

  • Feel tired most of the time (Chronic Fatigue)?
  • Have digestive problems? (gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea that come and go but never really clear up)
  • Have gastrointestinal symptoms and bulky stools with excess fat in feces?
  • Suffer with food sensitivities and environmental intolerance?
  • Developed allergic-like reactions and can’t understand why?
  • Have joint and muscle pains and inflammation often assumed to be arthritis?
  • Suffer with anemia or iron deficiency (pernicious anemia)?
  • Have hives, rashes, weeping eczema, cutaneous ulcers, swelling, sores, papular lesions, itchy dermatitis?
  • Suffer with restlessness and anxiety?
  • Experience multiple awakenings during the night particularly between 2 and 3 am?
  • Grind your teeth?
  • Have an excessive amount of bacterial or viral infections?
  • Depressed?
  • Difficulty gaining or losing weight no matter what you do?
  • Did a Candida program which either didn’t help at all or helped somewhat but you still can’t stay away from bread, alcohol, fruit, or fruit juices?
  • Just can’t figure out why you don’t feel really great and neither can your doctor?
  • itchy ears, nose, anus
  • forgetfulness, slow reflexes, gas and bloating, unclear thinking;
  • loss of appetite, yellowish face
  • fast heartbeat, heart pain, pain in the navel;
  • eating more than normal but still feeling hungry;
  • pain in the back, thighs, shoulders;
  • lethargy;
  • numb hands;
  • burning sensation in the stomach;
  • drooling while sleeping;
  • damp lips at night, dry lips during the day, grinding teeth while asleep;
  • bed wetting;
  • women: problems with the menstrual cycle;
  • men: sexual dysfunction;


These are only possible symptoms, and please keep in mind that not everyone that has a few of these symptoms should automatically make the assumption that they are infected; however, if you suspect infection or have been unsuccessfully treated for a problem, it is worth doing some specific parasite cleansing.

Information from the book:

Guess What Came to DinnerGuess What Came to Dinner?: Parasites and Your Health

by Ann Louise Gittleman. All copyrights apply.

Parasites are a serious public health threat because so few people are talking about them and even fewer people are listening when they are being discussed. They are insidious because of the common misconception among medical people and the general public that parasites are generally a Third World problem where malnutrition and poor hygienic practices exist. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Tests often do not show parasites because the testing procedures are by and large outdated and inadequate.

Here’s What Informed People Are Saying . . . .

An article in June 27, 1978, Miami Herald states that a nationwide survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control in 1976 revealed that one in every six people selected at random had one or more parasites.

Louis Parrish, M.D. a New York City physician who specializes in parasites, wrote in 1991, "based upon my experience, I estimate in the New York metropolitan area that 25 % percent of the population is infected . . . . . . . . Projections for the year 2025 suggest that more than half of the 8.3 billion people on Earth will then be infected with parasitic diseases."

"We have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the United States - it’s just not being identified." - Peter Weiner, Ph.D., Chief of Pathobiology, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, 1991.

"I strongly believe that every patient with disorders of immune function, including multiple allergies (especially food allergy), and patients with unexplained fatigue or with chronic bowel symptoms should be evaluated for the presence of intestinal parasites." - Leo Galland, M.D. Townsend Letter for Doctors, 1988.

"Make no mistake about it, worms are the most toxic agents in the human body. They are one of the primary underlying causes of disease and are the most basic cause of a compromised immune system." - Hazel Parcells, D.C., N.D., Ph.D., 1974.

Who Gets Parasites?

Everyone is susceptible.

Let’s look at some of the reasons for rising parasitic infections. This list is taken from page 9/10 of Louise Gittleman’s book, Guess What Came to Dinner.

Rise in international travel.
Contamination of municipal and rural water supplies.
Increasing use of Day-care centers.
Influx of refugee and immigrant populations from endemic areas.
Return of armed forces from overseas.
Continued popularity of household pets.
Increasing popularity of exotic regional foods.
Use of antibiotics and immunosuppressive drugs.
The sexual revolution.
The spread of AIDS.


There are four pathways that we can be infected:
Via food or water which are sources of the roundworm, amoebae, giardia.

  • Via a vector - mosquito carrier of dog heartworm, filaria, malaria; flea is a carrier of dog tapeworm; common housefly transmits amebic cysts; sand fly carries leishmaniasis.

  • Via sexual contact where partners can transmit trichomonas, giardia, amoebae.

  • Through the nose and skin where pinworm eggs and Toxoplasma gondii can be inhaled from contaminated dust, hookworms, schistosomes, and strongyloides can penetrate exposed skin and bare feet.

  • "Another parasitic pathway is the airplane. Extensive foreign travel has exposed people to a whole gamut of exotic diseases never before encountered in their homeland." Guess What Came to Dinner by Louise Gittleman, pg. 22.



Here are a few of the ways we could have become infected:

Traveled to foreign countries?
Walked barefoot outside or inside your house (especially if you have pets that
share your environment)?
Eaten pork or shellfish?
Have pets in your home?
Petted animals and neglected to wash your hands?
Put your hands into your mouth?

What Are Some of The Symptoms of Parasite Infestation?

These are only possible symptoms, and please keep in mind that not everyone that has a few of these symptoms should automatically make the assumption that they are infected; however, if you suspect infection or have been unsuccessfully treated for a problem, it is worth doing some specific parasite cleansing.


Feel tired most of the time (Chronic Fatigue)?
Have digestive problems? (gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea that come and go but never really clear up)
Have gastrointestinal symptoms and bulky stools with excess fat in feces?
Suffer with food sensitivities and environmental intolerance?
Developed allergic-like reactions and can’t understand why?
Have joint and muscle pains and inflammation often assumed to be arthritis?
Suffer with anemia or iron deficiency (pernicious anemia)?
Have hives, rashes, weeping eczema, cutaneous ulcers, swelling, sores, papular lesions, itchy dermatitis?
Suffer with restlessness and anxiety?
Experience multiple awakenings during the night particularly between 2 and 3 am?
Grind your teeth?
Have an excessive amount of bacterial or viral infections?
Depressed?
Difficulty gaining or losing weight no matter what you do?
Did a Candida program which either didn’t help at all or helped somewhat but you still can’t stay away from bread, alcohol, fruit, or fruit juices?
Just can’t figure out why you don’t feel really great and neither can your doctor?

How Many Kinds of Parasites Are There?

There are three classes of parasites and within each class are many varieties of them.
The known number of parasites today is around 130 different kinds.

  • Microscopic organisms known as Protozoa are invisible to the eye. They are
    one-celled but reproduce rapidly, can take over the intestinal tract and from there
    go on to other organs and tissues. They have been described as "microscopic
    vampires".

  • Phylum Nematoda (Round worms)Larger parasites or worms known as Nematoda that are visible to the eye (if you know what you are looking for). They are multi-cellular and multiply by producing eggs.

  • Phylum trematoda (flat worms)

  • Phylum cestoda (Tape worms)  known as Cestoda are the largest intestinal inhabitants of man. They have a head that attaches to the intestinal wall. As long as the head is attached a new worm can grow from it.

 

How Can These Parasites Affect Our Health?

Louise Gittleman says that many unexplained health conditions often disappeared when parasites were eliminated from the body. These conditions included "environmental illness, skin problems, digestive problems, excessive fatigue, hypoglycemia, arthritic-like pains, long-standing obesity, and even depression."

Should Children be De-Wormed?

Absolutely, if you want ultimate health for your children. Children pick up parasites too. Putting dirty hands, and other objects in their mouths, sharing cups, food and toys with other children who may be infected and not washing their hands properly after using the bathroom or handling family pets are only a few ways of becoming infected with parasites. Obviously, because of your child’s age and weight, the amount should be reduced accordingly.

 

Why Don’t Doctors Often Diagnose Parasites?

Many parasite-based problems can mimic diseases that are more familiar to the doctor. Roundworm infection has been misdiagnosed as peptic ulcer; amoebic colitis is often mislabeled as ulcerative colitis; chronic fatigue syndrome and yeast infection may be a chronic case of giardiasis.; diabetes and hypoglycemia may be caused by tapeworm infection.

Parasitology courses (study of human parasites) are usually offered by a tropical disease department meaning that the medical community generally perceived parasites as primarily a foreign concern. In addition, it is difficult to accurately diagnose the problem because the parasite’s own reproductive cycle in which eggs or cysts are passed at irregular intervals makes diagnoses tricky.

Herbs :

Herbal books refer to the following as being effective for parasite elimination. They are:

Green Hull Black Walnut Hulls, Diatomaceous Earth, Cloves, Garlic, Pumpkin
Seeds, Wormwood, Goldenseal, Sage, Thyme, Fennel, Male Fern, Cranberry Powder, Grape Seed Extract.

You may in fact be taking one or more of these ingredients; however, they may not be in a high enough amount to initially rid the body of parasites, but would be adequate to provide protection against future infection once you clear up the condition.

Heterophyids
Humans are infected by the small flukes Metagonimus yokogawai and
Heterophyes heterophyes by eating raw fish.(35) Both M. yokogawai and H.
heterophyes are primarily intestinal flukes of dogs and cats. Human
infection with M. yokogawai occurs in Asia, the Middle East, and
Siberia. H. heterophyes infection occurs in southeast Asia and northwest
Africa.

Worms

Phylum nematoda (round worms)

With over 500,000 species, nematodes constitute the second largest class in the animal kingdom. Nematodes are elongated, cylindrical, nonsegmented worms with rounded anterior and pointed posterior ends. The species commonly infecting humans include Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus (hookworms), Ascaris lumbricoides, Anisakis marina, Capillaria philippinensis, Enterobius vermicularis (pinworm), Strongyloides stercoralis, and Trichuris trichiura (whipworm).

Phylum trematoda (flat worms)

Trematodes (or flukes) are flat worms that cause significant morbidity in human hosts. These parasites have complex lifecycles involving multiple generations and hosts. Trematodes causing significant human disease include Fasciolopsis buski, the heterophyids (Metagonimus yokogawai and Heterophyes heterophyes ) and the amphistomes (Gastrodiscoides hominis).

Phylum cestoda (tapeworms)

Cestodes (or tapeworms) are parasites of the gastro-intestinal tract whose lifecycle requires at least one intermediate host. They are long, flat worms that have a scolex or sucker located at the head. The cestodes that cause significant human disease include Taenia saginata, Taenia solium, Hymenolepsis nana and Diphyllobothrium latum.

Intestinal Parasites And AIDS

  Several years before the AIDS epidemic, many gay men became infected by intestinal parasites which previously had occurred mostly in the tropics. These diseases -- mainly amebiasis and giardiasis -- started to spread through sexual transmission, to infect as many as 80 percent of gay men. Once infected, persons can carry the parasites for years unless they are treated.

 

 


Parasites as Cofactors for AIDS

The growing body of evidence is supporting the idea that parasitic disease may be an essential factor for AIDS. The theory was based upon three lines of evidence :

  1. all the risk groups for AIDS had evidence for chronic "pan-immunosuppression" prior to HIV/AIDS
  2. the epidemic of parasites in homosexuals preceded AIDS by a few years. That was a common factor with African and Haitian risk Groups.
  3. parasites exert immunosuppressive, antigenic and mitogenic effects on T cells.
