I've read several posts saying eating raw pineapple kills intestinal Tapeworms and ascaris. Does it also kill pork tapeworms in the brain and if so, can they be killed off too fast and cause a problem? When I eat the pineapple, I feel tingling in my head, feels like close to the scalp.
I searched this forum for an answer and found several posts about "pineapple will kill them".
I ate one pineapple on Friday and two yesterday (one in the a.m, 1/2 in the afternoon and 1/2 before going to bed.
I did pass some worms this A.M. but it was hard to distinguish from the pineapple. I don't know much about worms but I can see what looks like 1-6" ascaris. They were sort of all rolled up together...you have to separate them to see what they are. Also some flat white pieces.
I have used 3 of the most popular dewormers (here on curezone) for 3 months now. I also used pyrantel pamoate out of desparation and it did kill some. But the next day, they were crawling. I've also been using herbs, i.e. pure oregano oil, really hot cayenne tincture, have done a colon cleanse, approx 18 LF and other things I'm sure I'm not remembering right now. I plan to keep pineapple as a regular food in my diet.
That is highly interesting and I will have to eat some pineapple for a couple of days, sometime, to see what if anything happens. For ex. I have seen no parasites for a long time, so it would be interesting if pineapple made some show up.
However, I would not assume that because parasites came out with pineapple that indicates all of them have been killed, not only re numbers, but re different types.
It would also seem unlikely it would kill some outside the GI tract, where a zapper would more likely be helpful.
I wonder how much bromelain, a derivitive, of pineapple, can kill parasites? No so many calories!
I have also found success with pineapple but I think three in two days would make me pretty sick. I take bromelain supplements everyday because that is the enzyme in pineapple that works so well to digest the proteins (worms). I do this because the Sugar in the pineapples is hard to take everyday. Don't get me wrong, the pineapple is worth trying because it not only kills the worms, it causes you to need to use the bathroom and gets the worms out quickly. Sometimes I've had success within one hour.
Pineapple works very well on intestinal infections but I don't know about brain parasites. I would imagine it is difficult to have mere foods reach up there. The key is probably to do as many things as you can to eliminate the worms so that your body is an inhospitable place for them to live. Brain or intestine won't matter if your entire body chemistry changes against them.
I don't eat a whole pineapple in a day - ever. I eat a whole one in six days, 2-3 days prior to full, new moons and for 2-3 days after - along with pumpkin seeds. Colon/Bowel cleansing along with this helps. Most recently I have noticed the passing of parasites without any extraordinary measures. The hard work of diet and parasite herbs has created a better balanced terrain, so they are leaving regularly. The bromelain in any form is sure to kick them out.
Proteolytic enzymes are one of the most important things that everyone should be taking, for a couple of different reasons. And not just in 8 day rounds like the Zymex 2 is taken for.
What happens with the dead carcasses of parasites that are killed in closed cavities, like the heart, brain etc? Dead parasites aren't always going to show up in the toilet.
Proteolytic enzymes, work systemically, like little pac men, but have to be taken away from food, especially protein. Bromelain is the enzyme in pineapple, but it's not the only enzyme needed by the pancreas.
In order to not be digested themselves, Ascaris inhibit our digestive enzymes.
>>The chymotrypsin/elastase inhibitor from Ascaris species protects it from proteolytic degradation by the host"s digestive enzymes
>>The molecular structure of a peptide secreted by parasitic ascaris worms to protect them from digestive enzymes in the stomach is described this week by a multinational group of scientists. This research may lead to drugs that can disrupt the action of the peptide, pepsin inhibitor-3 (PI-3), exposing the parasite to the host's natural defences, the investigators suggest ( Nature Struct Biol 2000; 7: 653—57).
The researchers, led by Michael James (University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
>>One thing certainly stands out: in every case of cancer pancreatic enzymes
are depressed. And as has also been proven true: whenever a deficiency in
function in one area is found in an organ, other functions are often
deficient as well.
Pancreatic enzymes are essential and central to the normal metabolically
mediated control and destruction of the cancer cell.
Magnesium is thought to be essential in the activity of at least 70
different life-sustaining enzymes in our bodies, and probably more.
The arrested development of certain white blood cells may be due to a
deficiency of trypsin, which I am told has been shown experimentally to
promote maturation of developmentally-arrested leukocytes. That the
immune system functions only after the peri-cellular coating is digested
away from the cancer membrane is well established; if this leukocyte
development function can be fully confirmed, the pancreas must then be
termed an immune organ along with bone marrow and the thymus.
Thus the complete metabolic protocol for cancer must always include the
pancreatic enzymes, especially amylase, whose role is to shear away the
surgery side chains attached to the proteins, and which give the cancer
cell it's strong negative charge that repulses the white blood cells;
trypsin, which degrades the proteins along with carboxypeptidase and
chymotrypsin; and later ribonuclease which degrades the cancer genome, and
lipase and probably all the other enzymes secreted by the pancreas, and
which enter the entero-pancreatic circulation.
There is strong empirical evidence that there is an absorption not only of
the intrinsic pancreatic enzymes back into the blood and lymph, but also
enzymes derived from our foods or supplements, as much as 40% according to
Dr.s Lopez, Williams, and Mielhke.
The principal concept is that cancer cells actually elicit pancreatic
proteases and amylase by their presence, just as food in the stomach
stimulates pancreatic secretion by means not fully understood. A
deficiency in either amylase or the proteases would be disastrous if
continued unsatisfied. The delivery of the essential amino acids,
chromium and magnesium (as well as zinc) insure that the pancreas will
synthesize these enzymes in sufficient quantity to satisfy both intestinal
digestion, and the immuno-enzyme function against the cancer cell or
secretes inhibitors which deactivate these enzymes. A similar mechanism
is used by pin and round worms like Ascaris, and other parasites.
This is the reason the proteolytic enzymes are found in all the Systemic Formulas for pathogens:
Do Pancreatic Enzymes Function Beyond the
It used to be believed that digestive enzymes only functioned in the Gastro-Intestinal
(GI) Tract, and that belief was taught for many years. However, it is erroneous.
Beginning with Dr. Edward Howell’s book, Enzyme Nutrition, we now know that the
body conserves some of its precious enzymes by reabsorbing them.
Now, there are numerous studies that show oral administration of trypsin and chymotrypsin
enter the bloodstream and eventually come back to the pancreas for
reuse. Thus, the pancreas is actually involved in a circulatory system just like the
liver/gall bladder recycles bile salts.
The pancreas secrets enzymes into the small intestine. The enzymes do their job
to digest food. Extra enzymes can be reabsorbed. These enzymes can then effect
a beneficial activity in the body such as the reduction of inflammation and the
breakdown of fatty deposits, and then work their way back to the pancreas for
another tour of duty.
Why is this so important? Because here is the basis for the effectiveness of supplementation.
If we provide the ailing body nutritional enzymatic support, then it not
only helps the body accomplish the digestion it needs to accomplish, but it also
gives the pancreas a rest of its enzyme bank and restoration of its function.
On this positive note of supplementation, let’s look at symptoms of pancreatic
insufficiency and how herbal/enzymatic therapies can have a dramatic impact.
Parasites, Candida and the Pancreas
People who have intestinal parasites, a condition that is considered pandemic in
America and the world) have a pancreas insufficiency! Why? Because the pancreatic
protease enzymes, as they pass through the intestines, help rid the GI Tract of
bacteria, worms, protozoa, candida and fungi.
