Herb History & Diagnosis
Old-Fashioned Cleansers For A Modern World
For thousands of years, humans used herbs for worming purposes. THINK about this – if these herbs didn’t work or were harmful - those folks would have died. Since man has entered into modern times, these age -old remedies have been replaced with modern medicines and chemicals. However, most parasites have adapted themselves to this and are harder than ever to destroy. Parasites, like roaches, have been around since the dawn of man and will continue to plague us due to their tremendous adaptability.
Many older people remember the home remedies for parasites such as the very commonplace castor oil treatment. Before the 1930’s it was common and routine for families to worm themselves every six months. In the 1800’s, medical doctors would supervise the biannual de-worming process for their patients. The European medical community of today still recommends biannual deworming.
Let’s review how a modern American doctor tests for parasites. There are over 1,000 species of parasites that can live in the human body. Modern medicine has tests for about 45 of these. Therefore, tests are available for only about 5% of parasites. The accuracy rate of these tests are 20%. After the math, we come up with a 1% accuracy rate. It all boils down to this – if you have any type of parasite in your body, you only have a 1% chance of finding out for sure with a medical test. The testing consists of a lab technician working with a stool sample. This misses blood parasites and flukes and most all other species. Most people think -"If I had worms, I would know it." Probably not! If an occasional worm is passed in the stool - how many of us would even see it?
REMEMBER – it’s the parasite’s mission to remain undetected and it is quite rare to see an actual “worm” (besides pinworms) in the stool. They do not want to leave the host because they need their host to survive.
WHY ARE WE NOT BEING DIAGNOSED?
We live in a modern, clean, sanitary country – talking about parasites is UNHEARD OF. We Americans consider it to be a Third World problem. American doctors are not trained to recognize or treat parasite infections. American doctors who take a Parasitology course (the study of human parasites) are given information and stats from foreign countries, so these doctors perceive parasites as a problem not associated with the United States. In other words, it’s not talked about, not taught to the members of our medical community and is frankly ignored by most everyone.
Lack of education and awareness about parasitic infections are the missing link to many of today’s ailments.
