I am also extremely curious about it!
Do alcoholics have no parasites? That sounds pretty unfair..
DO PARASITES CONSUME ALCOHOL AS FOOD AND THRIVE
OR DOES ALCOHOL KILL THEM?? - that is the ultimate question!
Being a recovering alcoholic, addict I'm here to say no I was not immune. My parasites were just as loaded as me. And...I think it even made me more vulnerable for any freeloader to jump on board. So I'm grateful to be awake or sober enough to deal with these dreadful critters. ( :
It doesn't...I am living proof of that!
I put enough shit in my body to kill an elephant...that may be why my parasites are so, so resistant. If the alcohol and drugs didn't kill them, either can Humaworm.
Wow, very interesting! So not drinking alcohol and drinking alcohol--neither works I guess. I guess parasites don't care much either way. I think parsites like to hang out in the fat and I'm not sure how much alcohol gets into the fat or behind the layers of biofilm. I bet biofilm is a shield to the alcohol.
OK, so my theory after thinking about this is that maybe strong liquor like vodka might kill what it comes in direct contact with, but there is going to be plenty of parasites that it doesn't. So then it might act as a solvent to aid eggs in hatching out. Not to mention that the sugars do help candida grow. Just my theory.
Also, I just read an old post that Candida produces its own alcohol and that was the reason I woke up croggy and hangoverish when I had candida overgrowth but had never even drank a drop of alcohol. I discovered this when I had some liquor on icecream, two bowls, it was good, the other night at a dinner party. Anyway, the next morning I woke up and felt like I did in the mornings of the Candida days, crappy, and then I realized that this is a minor version of what a hangover feels like (thanks to the old post) and this is how I felt everyday of my life for three years, hungover, with migraines, the whole nine yards!
In my experience, alcohol will calm down roving scattered worms. They get drunk. Its not a solution, but if acute scattering is happening, and it is driving one crazy with activity, then alcohol can be helpful -in the immediate short term- for that. But like everyone else more or less said, it adds fuel to the fire.
I have had one giant hangover for 3 years straigt. Migraine, fatigue, irritability, mental fog, all from the alcohol that my raging systemic candida infection was letting off in my system. No wonder I felt like crap. It all makes sense now. Sorry, I can't remember where I read that candida's biproduct is alcohol, but it's somewhere.
With Ulcerative Colitis for 5 years, diarrhea and loss of lots of blood I noticed two things. Beer makes it worse, Potato Vodka with non-concentrated OJ clears up my condition when prescribed meds don't work. It's always highly advised that UC sufferers to not drink any alcohol, but I noticed a significant improvement the day after a night of drinking. Stools normalize & bleeding stops. I might have to drink like a Russian every night to sustain constant benefit.
The MD will never tell anybody to start drinking and be responsible for turning someone into an alcoholic, but I have realized that vodka really does have medicinal properties. Drink lots of water and take Magnesium & Potassium if you get muscle cramps from dehydration.
