Brain Eating Parasite

Posted in PARASITES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:53 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
The brain eating parasite i first heard of was seen in Africa like three to four years ago now! Dr Omar Amin owner of the Parasitology Center, in Arizona left the next morning after talking with me by cell phone… He was flying to Africa to study it… He told me the parasite gets in the body going right for the brain and killing them…
~ Dr Amin travels the world researching parasites…
That deadly parasite has reached the US!
I strongly urge you to get tested by this lab in Arizona!!!!!
~ They test for every “bad” parasite known in the world…
~ Lab Corp, Quest, etc… can only check for 40-50 types…
~ Military labs (2) only check for 200 types…
~ The NJ BioLab rep told me there are no “bad” parasites in the US and you can not get them in your mouth…
~ “Bad” parasites are in the US! (spoiling food, food with yeast, soil, water, air)
~ “Bad” parasites do reside in your mouth (Morgellons~NCS, mercury poisoning, dental ~ gels, solvents, metal, etc…)
~ 200,000 types of “bad” parasites exist, including yeast!
~ 85 – 90% of the US have “bad” parasites they are unaware of!
~ Only lab checks for all known to man in the world!
~ Doctors are not really or extensively trained on parasites especially “bad” parasites!
~ Most all skin disorders are caused by “bad” parasites!
~ Most all medical conditions are caused by “bad”parasites!
* Google: (your symptom) parasite … Then read and learn the truth!

** ALL your symptoms count!!! **
(The symptoms that do not overlap in other medical conditions dictate what you may have)
~ Most all doctors listen to a few symptoms, one strikes them and they diagnose you THAT!
~ SCENARIO:: YOU had a list of more symptoms they never considered! YOU are usually misdiagnosed ~ undiagnosed then prescribed the wrong thing which may make you worse or do nothing while the “beast” in side you advances!
* Note: Most symptoms overlap each other in medical conditions!
Brain-Eating Amoeba
* 28 cases reported in the US between 2003 – 2012…
* Almost always fatal…
* Only 2 survivors since 1950…
SIGNS and SYMPTOMS ~ Onset symptoms of infection start about five days (range is from one to seven days) after exposure.
~ Initial symptoms include, but are not limited to, changes in taste and smell, headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, and stiff neck.
~ Secondary symptoms include confusion, hallucinations, lack of attention, ataxia, and seizures.
~ After the start of symptoms, the disease progresses rapidly over three to seven days, with death occurring from seven to fourteen days after exposure.
It doesn’t happen often. But most summers, several Americans — usually healthy, young people — suffer sudden, tragic deaths from brain-eating amoeba.
Amoebas are single-celled organisms. The so-called brain-eating amoeba is a species discovered in 1965. It’s formal name is Naegleria fowleri. Although first identified in Australia, this amoeba is believed to have evolved in the U.S.
There are several species of Naegleria but only the fowleri species causes human disease. There are several fowleri subtypes. All are believed equally dangerous.
Naegleria loves very warm water. It can survive in water as hot as 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

These amoebas can be found in warm places around the globe. N. fowleri is found in:
~ Warm lakes, ponds, and rock pits
~ Mud puddles
~ Warm, slow-flowing rivers, especially those with low water levels
~ Untreated swimming pools and spas
~ Untreated well water or untreated municipal water
~ Hot springs and other geothermal water sources
~ Thermally polluted water, such as runoff from power plants
~ Aquariums
~ Soil, including indoor dust
Naegleria can’t live in salt water. It can’t survive in properly treated swimming pools or in properly treated municipal water.

Most cases of N. fowleri disease occur in Southern or Southwestern states. Over half of all infections have been in Florida and Texas.

N. fowleri is microscopic: 8 micrometers to 15 micrometers in size, depending on its life stage and environment. By comparison, a hair is 40 to 50 micrometers wide.

Parasite Test Truth!
PCOS Lady:
This woman’s experience is exactly what i am going through! Unnecessary tests from the wrong lab(s), wrong type tests ordered, wasted gas, wasted money to pay for those unnecessary tests, etc… I now have a out of pocket bill for $900 for tests and should have only spent $485 at the Parasitology Center in Arizona and been fully confident in their findings and trusted their treatments!
~ Now i have to prove to my insurance i need the proper testing done at the right lab!
All i needed were the proper scripts to the correct lab, in Arizona! After all they literally test for every known parasite to man in the world!
Many of you are experiencing “bad” parasites and do not know it…
You may accept them with excuses like:
~ I’m aging
~ My chemistry has changed inside …
~ I ate something wrong …
~ I can’t eat that food anymore… Bad parasites hate acidic foods like pineapple and vinegars!
~ I’m not feeling well, it will pass…
~ I barfed my meal, ok no big deal something did not agree with me…
~ OK, i have diarrhea a few days, it will pass…
~ My doctor says i have IBS, just an upset stomach, etc…
~ My tests came back normal…
~ It’s my time to start getting sick…
Yada, yada, yada the EXCUSES KEEP MOUNTING and all the while “YOU” are getting sicker inside… You finally may do something when you start calling out of work, need a doctor, need an operation, you see your looks start getting “ugly”, hair is falling out more, nails are brittle or discoloring just to prove a point here!
Ladies, menstrual problems most likely are “bad” parasites! I urge you to be tested before any surgery and expensive treatments, etc…
~ Consider being properly tested if you have had miscarriages as well…
I strongly urge you to read through my Parasite and Morgellon posts…
~ Read up on Celiac Disease, Aspartame symptoms too! They can be fatal…
~ After taking antibiotics have you done a yeast cleanse that year? Docs rarely tell you to!
~ The medical world and such do not want you knowing the truths!
I copied her piece on lab tests to bring specific attention to the facts that most labs are not equipped to test for “bad” parasites in “YOU“!!!!!

Parasites, A Modern Epidemic
by Garcia Thompson
~ ~ ~
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:
If 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 don’t 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.)

Dr Ross Andersen:
Quote: “Parasites are one of the most undiagnosed health challenges in the U.S.”
~ A statement based on his 20 years of experience with over 20,000 patients.
Parasites are the Silent Invasion, what you should know about parasite infestation.
According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasitic infection. Not all of these people live in third world countries; many in the developed world have any number of parasitic infections, some of which are so highly contagious that extremely casual contact with something that has been handled by an infected person can infect another person.
All people suffer from parasites of one type or another during their lifetimes.
~ EG Bacteria are always at the root of bowel problems, such as pain, bloating and gassiness.
The Parasitology Center’s Dr Amin has found H. pylori in most IBS cases… They have a specific test for it…

The objective of this study was to analyze the extent of stressful life events’ etiology and to compare socio-demographic and medical characteristics of the presence and absence of stress in Turkish cancer patients. Patients with cancer who attended ambulatory patient care units answered the questionnaires. Medical information was reviewed from chart data. The study population comprised 465 women (60.5%) and 303 men (39.5%), in total 768 cases. The median age was 53 years, ranging between 18 and 94. Three-hundred and twenty patients (41.7%) had at least one type of stress since last year of the time of initial diagnosis. Among patients had stress, the median number of stress modalities presented was 1 (range 1-6). Death, lack of livelihood, quarrel, illness, and debt almost always consisted of stress types. History of stress within last year was found more in women (66.3% vs. 56.5%, P = 0.006) and overweight patients (57.5% vs. 47.2%, P = 0.005). Similarly, among cancer types, only patients with breast cancer (41.9% vs. 31.7%, P = 0.04) had lived more stressful situation. However, the married patients (72.2% vs. 80.6%, P = 0.03) had less stress. Patients with gastric cancer had more frequent debt (29.0%, P < 0.001) and lack of livelihood history (21.4%, P = 0.001). Additionally, in lung cancer patients, their rate of livelihood difficulty was highly less than average (2.4%, P = 0.003). We found that overweight patients had more illness history (68.9% vs. 51.6%, P = 0.004), patients who were not working had more death history (89.7% vs. 78%, P = 0.01), and female patients had more quarrel history (78.2% vs. 60.5%, P = 0.002). Likewise, history of debt in patients who is a member of large family (56.2% vs. 27.4%, P = 0.01) was more frequent. Additionally, the lack of livelihood was prominent in urban patients (92.8% vs. 78.6%, P = 0.002) and in patients with low income (48.5% vs. 66.7%, P = 0.004). The question of whether or not psychological factors originated from stressful life events have an influence on cancer initiation and progression is still unanswered after several decades of research. Future studies might benefit from better well-designed articulated hypotheses, prospective design, and large study populations to ensure adequate knowledge.

Toxic Shampoo: Read before Applying
October 2, 2012
by guest blogger Isaac Eliaz, MD, MS, LAc, integrative medicine pioneer
When embracing a healthy lifestyle, there’s one thing we learn over and over: healthy living requires vigilance. This is true of food and exercise, and, especially, the products we buy.
Like so much in modern life, shampoos and hair care products often contain too many ingredients that were born on a chemist’s bench. These chemicals are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, and from there they can wreak havoc on organs, tissues, and cells. Luckily, there are many reputable natural health companies that are aware of these dangers and use healthy cleansing agents in their body products instead.
Toxin Alert
But, unless you’re extremely careful, it’s pretty much impossible to avoid all exposure to harmful, health-robbing toxins. Here’s a list of common chemical offenders found in many shampoos:
~ Parabens: A common preservative used to eliminate bacteria and fungi in cosmetics, parabens have been linked to increased estrogen levels, which can lead to hormonal disorders and even cancer.
~ Quaternium-15: A preservative that releases formaldehyde and has been linked to cancer, specifically leukemia, quaternium-15 is also an allergen and can cause contact dermatitis.
~ Fragrance: We would need an entire book to list all the ingredients found in the various fragrances used in shampoos and skin products. These can cause allergic reactions, rashes, headaches and nausea. Some fragrance compounds have been linked to cancer.
~ Methylisothiazolinone: Often abbreviated on ingredients lists as MIT, this preservative is found in a wide variety of shampoos and has been linked to neurological damage, particularly in unborn children. MIT has also been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
~ Sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate: Abbreviated SLS and SLES, these surfactants make soaps foamy. They can also cause skin and eye irritation and have been linked to endocrine disruption, genetic mutations, and cancer.
~ 1,4-dioxane: Not an ingredient so much as a contaminant, however, it’s been found in 22 percent of the products in the Skin Deep Database from the Environmental Working Group. This is cause for concern. The Environmental Protection Agency classifies dioxane as a probable carcinogen.
What to Do
The first line of defense is prevention. Do whatever you can to keep these chemical compounds off your skin as much as possible. But again, these toxins are so common that it’s difficult to avoid them entirely. Luckily, there are a number of ways to protect your health in the presence of these harmful pollutants.
Eat protective nutrients. Many of the harmful chemicals in shampoos and body products have an oxidative effect, which can wreak havoc on cells, tissues, and organs by causing chronic inflammation and free radical damage. Antioxidants combat these effects, particularly vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A and beta-carotene, alpha lipoic acid, N-acetyl-cysteine, and others. Fresh berries, nuts, cruciferous and colored vegetables, and numerous herbs and spices are also high in antioxidants.
Add botanical supplements. Calendula, honeysuckle, astragalus, and rehmannia root can help protect the skin from irritation and other damage. Calendula and honeysuckle are flowers and usually steeped in hot water to make tea. Astragalus and rehmannia are roots and are often ground into a powder and mixed with water, or put into a capsule or tablet form, along with other herbs. Calendula and honeysuckle are also commonly used topically to soothe irritated and inflamed skin. Using herbs both topically and orally can provide greater benefits.
Enlist detox helpers. Once harmful chemicals are in your body, you want to do what you can to get them out. A number of dietary supplements, botanicals, foods, and specific cleansing diets can help detoxify many of these pollutants.
Seven of the top natural ingredients that offer powerful yet gentle whole-body detoxification are:
~ Medicinal mushrooms: Reishi, agaricus, cordyceps, coriolus, maitake, and umbellatus, along with many other types, help to remove toxins from the body. Detoxifying mushrooms can be cooked in meals, taken as supplements, or mixed in powdered form in hot water for tea.
~ Dandelion (leaf and root): Dandelion root provides powerful support for cleansing the liver and the gallbladder—two key organs essential for detoxification. The leaves also help flush toxins from the bladder and digestive tract. Dandelion can be eaten raw or cooked, taken in supplement form, or drunk as a tea.
~ Milk thistle seed: The herb’s seeds contain silymarin, a natural compound that is shown to be a potent liver protector and detoxifier. Milk thistle seeds support gall bladder health, as well, while also providing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Most often, milk thistle seed is taken as a supplement.
~ Garlic: Garlic contains many sulfur compounds and other active components to support detoxification, heavy metal removal, and overall immune health. It can be eaten raw or cooked, or taken in supplement form. Some people juice a small amount and mix it with other vegetable juices.
~ Modified citrus pectin and modified alginates formula: These two ingredients are shown to safely remove heavy metals and toxins from the digestive and circulatory systems, without affecting essential minerals. They are taken as a supplement.
~ Cilantro: A flavorful herb, cilantro binds to and helps remove heavy metals and toxins from the body. It also provides powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. The leaves and stems can be eaten raw in salads and salsas, juiced raw, or taken as a supplement.
~ Burdock root: This antioxidant, anti-inflammatory herb supports healthy liver detoxification and helps cleanse the circulation of toxins. It can be eaten raw in salads, cooked, or juiced; alternately, you can use it in tea or take it in supplement form.
Gentle seasonal detoxification is an important practice to adopt. Toxins multiply in our bodies from countless sources, not just shampoo and skin-care products.
Good information translates into good choices. Pay close attention to ingredient lists, research anything that troubles you, and, from there, you can adopt the best strategies to reduce these harmful effects. Simply “rinse and repeat”—this time using healthy cleansers made from plant-based ingredients.

What is Syncope?
Syncope is a medical term used to describe a temporary loss of consciousness due to the sudden decline of blood flow to the brain. Syncope is commonly called fainting or “passing out.” If an individual is about to faint, he or she will feel dizzy, lightheaded, or nauseous and their field of vision may “white out” or “black out.” The skin may be cold and clammy. The person drops to the floor as he or she loses consciousness. After fainting, an individual may be unconscious for a minute or two, but will revive and slowly return to normal. Syncope can occur in otherwise healthy people and affects all age groups, but occurs more often in the elderly.
There are several types of syncope. Vasovagal syncope usually has an easily identified triggering event such as emotional stress, trauma, pain, the sight of blood, or prolonged standing. Carotid sinus syncope happens because of constriction of the carotid artery in the neck and can occur after turning the head, while shaving, or when wearing a tight collar. Situational syncope happens during urination, defecation, coughing, or as a result of gastrointestinal stimulation. Syncope can also be a symptom of heart disease or abnormalities that create an uneven heart rate or rhythm that temporarily affect blood volume and its distribution in the body. Syncope isn’t normally a primary sign of a neurological disorder, but it may indicate an increased risk for neurologic disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), diabetic neuropathy, and other types of neuropathy. Certain classes of drugs are associated with an increased risk of syncope, including diuretics, calcium antagonists, ACE inhibitors, nitrates, antipsychotics, antihistamines, levodopa, narcotics, and alcohol.

Why do some IBS sufferers have these symptoms? The most likely explanation is the body’s own vasovagal reflex. The reflex stems from our vagus nerve, which is a nerve that travels from our brains to our colons, and contributes to a wide variety of physical functions, including swallowing, speaking, heart rate and digestion.
The vasovagal reflex is a sudden triggering of the vagus nerve. This may occur in response to a variety of factors, including:
~ Fear
~ Emotional stress
~ Gastrointestinal illness
~ Pain
~ Sight of blood
~ Standing for a long time
~ Standing up quickly
~ Trauma
~ or another one for you! (everyone is different on thresh holds)
The reflex results in an abrupt dropping of blood pressure and a sudden reduction in heart rate. At its worst, the reflex will result in fainting, as blood flow shifts away from the head and down into the legs. Fainting that is triggered by the vasovagal reflex is called vasovagal syncope.
At the appearance of warning signs such as;
~ lightheadedness
~ nausea
~ cold and clammy skin
Counter-pressure maneuvers that involve gripping fingers into a fist, tensing the arms, and crossing the legs or squeezing the thighs together can be used to ward off a fainting spell. If fainting spells occur often without a triggering event, syncope may be a sign of an underlying heart disease.
YOU may experience the scenario listed below like my male friend does every time now…
~ nausea
~ profusely sweating
~ lightheadedness
~ weak
~ real low heart rate
~ real low blood pressure
~ you are deemed A-Fib by EMT people
HOSPITAL ER … (“KEY” scenario)
~ heart rate OK
~ blood pressure OK
~ no sign of being A-Fib minutes later!
~ no evidence of a problem…
This scenario happens with no trail of evidence to track… Even a heart monitor may not pick up on it! Triggers cause the episodes, but may not cause them every time!
~ YOU must keep a journal on your episodes… List the triggers, the feelings, your symptoms, the time of day, how long out, how you felt after, etc… IT all shows your caring cardiologist a pattern…
Vasovagal Syncope
Medical Author: Benjamin C. Wedro, MD, FAAEM
Medical Editor: Melissa Conrad Stöppler, MD
Vasovagal syncope is a common cause of fainting. The vagus nerve is overstimulated and causes the body’s blood vessels to dilate and the heart to slow down. This anti-adrenaline effect decreases the ability of the heart to pump blood upward to the brain against gravity. Without blood flow, the brain turns off. In Victorian England, when this happened because young ladies’ sensibilities were easily offended, this was called a swoon.
Fortunately, the body is able to correct this temporary problem and return normalcy to the circulatory system in a matter of seconds. Unfortunately, that time delay allows the faint to happen, and while the faint itself is not a big deal, the potential complications may be. Falling is tough as you get older, kids bounce but adults tend to break. Imagine fainting while driving a car or swimming in a lake. While the grizzled veterans of the medical community laugh at the “routine faint” and then welcome the new students into their fraternity, blacking-out is not something to be taken lightly.
People faint at the sight of blood. Parents faint when their kids get immunized. Older people faint in church. Many types of emotional and physical stressors can stimulate the vagus nerve to do damage. But on occasion, the cause of the faint is not vasovagal syncope but something more serious. Encouraging the person to seek medical care or calling 911 may save a life. While it may be an inconvenience or sometimes an embarrassment to a patient, being unconscious is not normal. It may be easily explained…but it’s not normal.
