Parasites And Lyme Disease

Parasites And Lyme Disease

I have talked to a lot of people who have asked “do I have parasites” or said “I don’t have parasites“. I was one of those who said “I don’t have any parasites, just Lyme“. Boy was I wrong, I ended up of having two different types of intestinal worms, liver flukes and probably other things I could not see with the human eye.

Parasites can come in many forms and all can do different harm to the human body. Some parasites can be fatal or chronic but some can be treated and cured. Anyone can get infected with a parasite anywhere in the world and never know it. You can get a parasite from ingesting it in food or water, breathing it in, through skin contact and more. Even a scratch from a house cat can give you all kinds of different things such as Bartonella or Hookworms.

If you have Lyme disease or any other disease and a low immune system or no immune system then I highly recommend avoiding eating Sushi or undercooked fish or meat. That is a good way to get a tapeworm or other worms that can do damage to your body. Those intestinal worms can help keep you from healing properly and make you depressed even more.

**There is a ton of information on parasites but I am covering some basics because my brain cannot handle finding all the information or writing it, so speak to your doctor or search the internet for more information.

What Do Parasites Have To Do With Your Lyme Disease

I have heard from numerous LLMDs and other experts that in order to start treating and healing your Lyme disease you must first try to heal your tick-borne diseases (coinfections) and parasites first. It is said that 90% of people in the world have some form of a parasite. So it is extremely likely this means you.

For intestinal worms I recommend doing a MetaMetrix stool sample from your doctor or you can do it at home and mail it in. Have you notice anything funny looking in your toilet when you go to the bathroom? Do you have any red marks on your skin that don’t seem to go away? Does your skin itch a lot? These can all be signs of parasites but there are many more signs.

You can get all sorts of nasty critter from vacations in places like Mexico, Africa or anywhere in the world but especially countries with poor sanitation. Parasites can live within the intestines for years without causing any symptoms.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Gas or bloating
  • Dysentery (loose stools containing blood and mucus)
  • Rash or itching around the rectum or vulva
  • Rash or Itching
  • Fevers
  • Stomach pain or tenderness
  • Feeling tired
  • Weight loss
  • Passing a worm in your stool
  • Depression
  • Nightmares
  • Meningitis
  • And the list goes on……..
Getting a parasite is almost unavoidable but you can help prevent getting them. Here are some the ways you can get parasites and you can see why 90% of us have them:
  • Swimming in ponds, lakes and even swimming pools
  • Eating raw fish (Sushi) and undercooked fish
  • Getting your feet or hands in soil
  • Breathing in dust
  • Skin contact
  • Insect bites
  • Animal scratches or bites
  • Etc….

Treatment

There are different prescriptions for each parasite so I cannot name one that will work in your case. For my intestinal worms and liver flukes I took Ivermectin which I have posted before and it seemed to kill them all. I had no side effects so I would recommend it. It is really gross to think about it and you may be embarrassed to bring it up with your doctor but it is something you don’t want to let sit for years.

Second 10 Day Course Of Ivermectin – Update

25 May

 

Quick Update On Ivermectin

 

Still not feeling well so I cannot keep up with the blog lately.I just wanted to add that I have started in on my second 10 day course of Ivermectin and so far I am not seeing any worms, flukes…etc.Let’s hope that all of those critters have died and their are no eggs or new hatches hanging around. If you think this is gross or TMI, I can almost guarantee that you have them too.

I am taking 4 pills of 3mg each or 12mg once a day  on an empty stomach with water. Only on day one of the first 10 day course did I have stomach cramps and diarrhea. I double up on VSL#3 and since day one I have been having no cramps or any issues. I have no side effects (or if I do I do not notice since I already have so many symptoms).

I would highly recommend at least 2-3 months of Alinia and the Ivermectin for those who want to get rid of intestinal parasites. Both have been good to me and I have seen results. There are natural alternatives such as raw pumpkin seeds and many herbals that may do the same trick if you cannot handle meds well.

Parasite Treatment: Ivermectin – 12mg (4 capsules) Per Day

3 May


(Updates)

Day two: I have already seen another 4″ worm and 2 liver flukes today. I never had any liver flukes come out while on herbals or Alinia. So the Ivermectin seems to be the best so far and working fast! The bad part is that I was regular for 2 months with my BM’s and today I have diarrhea again, ugh. After 15 years of IBS it felt good to be regular and not have Diarrhea for once. Diarrhea is to be expected with Ivermectin so I will double up on my VSL#3 probiotic tonight.

Day Three: Today I saw another liver fluke I believe. I was a about the size of a button and look like a lightly cooked piece of fat from a steak. Since I do not eat steak or much meat it can’t be any meat fat. In fact I had soup the past few days. This little critter was tan in color and almost like a piece of a garden slug. Very gross but better out of me then living in my liver! Die!! I did take 2 VSL#3 last night and today I has a regular BM so that was good. The VSL#3 and D-Earth have really helped me out during tough times.

Day Four and Five: Nothing to report. No worms or flukes spotted. I haven’t had loose stool so they may be compacted in my waste and hidden and I am not going to dissect it (lol). My BM’s are regular again thanks to probiotics and D-Earth.

Ivermectin – Day One (this could get graphic)

I am starting my Ivermectin today and I am taking 12mg or four 3mg pills once per day on an empty stomach with water. I am pulsing and taking it for 10 days on, 10 days off , and 10 days on then I am done. I already did Alinia for 2-3 months and had some success. I hear Ivermectin will finish the job.

My insurance denied Ivermectin (Stromectol) even after I fought with them. I had my doctor call and tell them I have already tried all the other parasite killers but my insurance did not want to pay for the high price of Ivermectin I guess. So my pharmacy wanted $44 per 3mg pill and I need 80 pills. After some calls I found a pharmacy that will do a compound of Ivermectin for $140 for 80 pills. That’s a huge savings.
