Human ocular invasion by non-human filarial parasites have been reported for
more than 200 years1,2. However, only just over a handful have
actually been removed, described and identified in detail.3-6.
Furthermore, the Dipetalonema species that have been described in three cases
were thought to be from the body cavity of the natural hosts, the porcupine and
This case report describes a case of Dipetalonema reconditum (usually
associated with canine filariasis) in the human eye. It is noteworthy that this
worm has morphological similarities to the canine heartworm Dirofilaria imitis,
which in the past has been described in the human eye5,9 but not
Yep-- they are clear like that. I have had the thinner weaker ones in my eyes-- as well as nasal cavaties. Our late dog also had them in his nose too. One of us gave it to the other-- probably even just from eggs in house dust.
We live in a rural area-- and there are porcupines in the woods near our home-- and our dogs used to run back there alot. Our other dog even had to get porcupine quills removed from her face.
The ones i saw didnt move- as they rinsed out of my eyes and nose already dead from Sea Salt , eucalyptus and hydrogen peroxide i used.
The tell tale sign is a twitching eyelid--
I clean the eye tear ducts, nose and even ear area morning and night before bed anymore and have no longer noticed any in my eyes.-- and just lately - they are now no longer in my nose with constant hygene using cotton swabs dipped in hydrogen peroxide to clean out.
Always resist the temptation to pick out caked blood, etc, in the nostrils after a cold- you can transmit the eggs from under your fingernails without realizing.
rabbit ears, I knew when my eyelid would twitch once in a while that something was up.
Also- over a year ago I used to get Pink Eye for no reason.. Allergic reactions like my eyelid all puffed out.
I'd go to the doctor and all they'd do is prescribe an anti-histamine. And they would tell me the twitches were probably
"nervous twitches"--- Yeah like even THAT is normal..yeesh!!
So only until I started doing cleaneses, changing the way I eat, etc., and finding out more about parasites, did I realize that my doctor was verrry un-educated for her college degree.
I also have not had the eye parasites after my morning/night mop up. I believe Iv'e rid the eggs before they could hatch -and am keeping the tear ducts, nasal passages so clean with eyewashes and such that I am flushing out any larvea or eggs before they hatch.
Paralixer spray has also noticabely enhanced my sinuses-- when I thought they were already clear before using it-- I noticed an even greater benefit using Paralixer spray.
To think that for years I thought it was normal to always have sinus congestion and stuffed noses, scratchy throats and eye inflamation. My doctors would always say I had "allergies" and prescribe antihistamines all the time.
Right in the midst of allergy season this Fall, and I have no symptoms at all now!!
I had the exact same ones too. Totally clear things.....I also had/have the same red lined nose parasites as Boldyloxx, so having them in the eye area too, close to the nose seems logical. For me the eye parasites were easy to get rid of just through the diet and oregano oil internal capsules. Twitching and red inflamed eyes gone also. A strange thing, which might have nothing to do with the removal of eye parasites, is that my eyes don't feel dry and irritated any more. Since embarking on the parasite treatment, I can now use my contact lenses the whole day compared to the previous 5 hours.
Rabbitears, thanks for the picture, good to get my suspicion confirmed.....
Here's what I've noticed and I'm scared about it. (Sharing your stories has helped eased some of my fears. Thanks)
About 6 wks months ago, I noticed something in my left eye. At first, I
thought it was a floater, but quickly realized that it is a large
nematode; next week I discovered that I have one inside the right eye
too. They're laying eggs too which is freaking me out. I know if I
don't get these out I could go blind. I've been asking everyone and
found an opthalmologist who is wholistic -- I'll be going to him
Below is a story about a woman who lost her eye sight because she took
anthelmintics and the worm died, causing an infection. Surgery was
performed to remove the worm. I've actually backed off some of my herbs
til I figure out what to do. I know, I'll have to take some action
within the month, pretty soon. Really scared.
...His task is to remove a parasitic worm that had burrowed into her right
eye. It died there about four or five months earlier, and the rotting
organism has caused a severe inflammation in the eyeball that has
almost wiped out her sight. She has been reduced to seeing only light
and some motion, but can't make out details.
1) When treating the parasites, be very aggressive from the onset.
2) Rotate your herbs after 4-6 weeks. Take a 7-10 day break. Start the routine again.
3) Buy fresh herbs and capsule them yourself (I've experiemented enough to know!) There is no guarantee that the "best brands" have the freshest items.
4) Be patient. I made the mistake of switching to regular meds which messed me up. The parasites scattered everywhere throughout my body, causing a systemic problem.
5) No matter, what don't let the parasites win -- they think they have rights to your body.
6) Change your diet.
7) Do your research!
8) Increase your garlic intake up to 2 cloves per day!
Parasites going to the brain and eyes could have been avoided.
If I can think of anything else...I'll add to my list.
here is the product i am planning on using after my colon cleanse.
it's a little more gentle compared to the all out wormwood, Black-Walnut ,cloves
approach ,but i am confident that it'll do just fine.
i really hope i don't have any worms in my eyeballs..
that would really suck walnuts.
i don't know, i just wanna hurry up & cleanse so i can be over it already!
Below are some commonly used treatments for parasites.
Angelica (A. archangelica and A. sinensis)
Along with Echinacea purpurea, are widely used herbs for the treatment
of the protozoa, Trichomonas. Angelica contains coumarin compounds that
have been effective against this organism, as well as other worms and
parasites. The American and European species are two commonly used
species of Angelica. A. archangelica, along with the Chinese variety,
A. sinensis or dong quai, is also reported to be superior as a
treatment for all ailments of the female reproductive system. It also
relieves pain by reducing cramping in muscles, but may not be as
effective in the treatment of Trichomonas. Pregnant women should not
use this herb, nor should diabetics, as it tends to raise blood sugar
Artemisia Annua Extract
Exhibits strong antimalarial properties, as well as being effective against worms and various other parasites.
Have been used as an antibiotic and antiparasitic for thousands of
years around the world. Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), barberry
(Berberis vulgaris), Oregon grape (Berberis aquifolium), and goldthread
(Coptis chinensis) share similar effects on parasites because of their
high concentrations of berberine. It has been used in cases of
infection caused by fungi, protozoa, and even viruses and bacteria. It
also inhibits the overgrowth of yeast, a common side effect of
antibiotic use, nor does it appear to be harmful against the normal
flora bacteria. These plants also have a remarkable antidiarrheal
property, even in the most severe cases of infection, and are
particularly useful in infections that cause profuse diarrhea. It is
also known to increase the blood supply to the spleen, thereby
improving the body's immune system, plus activating the white blood
cells called macrophages. Under supervision, the herb is safely used in
treating children. Berberine can be used prophylactically if
travelling. Suggested use begins one week before and and ends one week
after the trip to areas of anticipated poor sanitation. Berberine is
generally considered non-toxic at recommended dosages, but high doses
can cause a lowering of blood pressure, difficulty breathing, flu-like
symptoms, GI discomforts, and heart damage. Therefore, it is best used
under the direction of a knowledgeable herbalist.
Black Walnut hulls (Juglans nigra)
Have been used for a long time to kill many kinds of intestinal worms,
especially tapeworms. The active ingredient, however, is only in the
green hull surrounding the nut, and must be harvested before the nut
falls from the tree. This active ingredient is called juglone and
exerts antifungal, antiworm, antiviral, and antibacterial effects. An
extract can be used safely in recommended doses for adults, but should
not be used for infants or children.
Butternut (Juglans cinerea)
Is a good all-purpose herb to relieve constipation and expel worms,
especially threadworms and pinworms. Butternut can be safely combined
with any other mixture for decreased bowel tone and as a soothing
laxative in cases of chronic constipation, but should not be taken over
a long time.
Calendula (C. officinalis)
Is commonly used as a topical remedy for the healing of wounds, pain,
or irritations. A tea made from 1 tbsp. Flowers to ¼ quart of water is
said to expel worms, as well as to repair tissue damage done by them.
Cascara (C. sagrada and Rhamnus purshiana)
Helps eliminate waste as a mild, but effective, laxative, and is
especially good in cases of chronic constipation. Using this one hour
after eating raw pumpkin seeds will eliminate from the body the
parasites that the seeds have paralyzed. Cascara is milder than Senna,
with the main site of action being in the lower bowel.
Cat's Claw (Uncaria tomentosa)
Is a giant woody vine that grows in the Peruvian tropical forests. It
has properties that help in resistant cases of imbalanced intestinal
flora, infection, sluggish digestion, poor assimilation, and bile
stimulation. It is very effective as an intestinal cleanser and immune
system rejuvenator, possessing antimicrobial and antiinflammatory
properties. It has the ability similar to white blood cells to engulf
and digest harmful microorganisms. It is a good companion herb for
treating most parasites except Giardia, which actually thrives when
there is bile stimulation. It is virtually nontoxic, but should not be
used by pregnant women.
Can be added to a treament plan to kill parasites. The volatile oil,
capsaicin, is also recommended for digestive disorders and
strengthening internal organs, particularly the heart muscle. It has an
analgesic effect similar to ginger, but does present a danger if there
is an existing ulcer or chronic irritation of the bowel. Bleeding and
serious damage can be exacerbated.
Chaparral (Larrea divaricata)
Is an excellent herbal antibiotic that can be used both internally and
externally against viruses, bacteria, and parasites. It is often used
for intestinal tract infections, diarrhea, or urinary tract infections,
and it is frequently combined with such other antibiotic herbs as
goldenseal and echinacea. Externally, chaparral can be applied to
wounds as an antiseptic and to the skin for itching, eczema, or scabies.
Cloves (Eugenia caryophyllata)
Is an ancient herbal medicine used for killing internal parasites and
their eggs. The spice exhibits a broad range of antimicrobial activity
against other organisms as well, including fungi and bacteria. Cloves
also helps to increase the circulation of the blood, promote digestion,
and eliminate gas and intestinal spasms.
Is rich in acids (citric, malic, quinic, and benzoic), that aid in the digestion of protozoa.
Echinacea (E. purpurea)
Or purple coneflower, is used to treat all manner of chronic and acute
infections. It is one of the most widely used herbs for the treatment
of Trichomonas vaginalis and as an effective douche for the treatment
of other vaginal infections. Echinacea is also used as an effective
blood and lymphatic cleanser and for strengthening the immune system.
Elecampane (Inula helenium)
Is specific for the roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides), having a
paralyzing effect on the worm's central nervous system. It is
recommeded as the safest herb for children and has been known to be a
benefit for lung ailments and digestive disorders.
Have a diverse antimicrobial action that can kill many types of worms
and protozoa. The essential oils of peppermint (Mentha piperita) and
lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) have the fastest killing effects,
acting within twenty minutes and fifteen minutes, respectively. The
essential oil thymol is specific for hookworms. Caution should always
be taken when using essential oils to treat parasitic infections. Many
of them are toxic, especially to children. Those with heart, liver,
kidney, stomach, or intestinal disease should also use caution, as well
as in pregnancy.
Fennel seed (Foeniculum vulgare)
Helps to remove waste material, as well as parasites, from the body.
Fennel is most often used as a digestive aid and flavoring agent. It is
not a dangerous plant, but the oil extracted can cause skin irritation,
nausea, vomiting, seizures, and edema of the lungs. This type of fennel
should not be confused with other types, including dog fennel.
Ficin (Ficus glabrata)
Is a well-known anti-worm remedy used in the tropics by the natives of
South America and the Panama region. The latex gathered from these
trees has been commercially exploited for decades because of its enzyme
properties of papain and bromelain. Even though the enzymes in the
plant digest living worms, it is well tolerated and nontoxic to humans
when taken internally. Despite this, it still should not be used by
Garlic (Allium sativum)
Is used worldwide as a food, spice, and medicine. The active
ingredient, allicin, is released after the clove is crushed. It is
responsible for the characteristic odor. Deoderized concentrates
contain only 30-100 parts per million of allicin and are of a
questionable value if using for medicinal purposes, especially for
parasites. Garlic prevents and fights infections from various sources,
including fungi, bacteria, viruses, and protozoa, as well as parasites.
As far as parasites are concerned, garlic is effective against
roundworms, tapeworms, pinworms, and hookworms, but it can cause
dermatitis in some people, as well as irritating the digestive tract.
Some may also not be able to detoxify allicin and other
sulfur-containing componenets effectively, but generally, garlic is the
best and cheapest means of ridding any infection.
Ginger (Zingiber officianalis)
Works against roundworms, as well as blood flukes, and is effective in
treating dog heartworm and Trichomonas vaginali. It is believed to have
some analgesic and antispasmodic effects, as well as having properties
similar to cayenne that helps relieve inflammation. It also has a long
history of treating all manner of digestive upsets.
Grapefruit seed extract
Has been proven to be effective against over 800 strains of viruses and
bacteria, 100 strains of fungi, plus a great number of single-celled
parasites. No other antimicrobial can make such claims. Despite
destroying harmful intestinal parasites, it does not significantly harm
the normal bowel flora. For some time in foreign countries, grapefruit
seed extract has been used as a broad spectrum antibiotic, antifungal,
antiprotozoan, antiviral, antiseptic, disinfectant, and as a
preservative in cosmetics. In South America, it has long been used
instead of chlorine in swimming pools and sewage treatment plants as
well, as in treating drinking water, since chlorine does not kill a
variety of pathogens, including Giardia. In Peru, it is used to
disinfect agricultural products. The FDA is finally acknowledging that
it is as effective as any other amebicide now available and perhaps
more effective, without causing the side effects that chlorine is known
to cause. When travelling abroad, including Mexico, it is proving to be
an exceptional and simple alternative to the more harsh methods of
killing parasites and other harmful organisms. Animals also respond
well to grapefruit seed extract since it does not cause the side
effects common in chemical dewormers. The extract should never be used
full strength when applied to the skin. The standard dilution is 33%
extract and 67% glycerin. For some applications, it is best used with
almond, olive, sesame, or avocado oils instead of water. Keep it away
from the eyes. A few drops can be added to household cleaners and soaps
for a germ-free cleanser. By using eight drops to a gallon of water, it
makes a safe and effective food wash that increases the shelf life of
fruits and vegetables by as much as 400%. The extract should not be
used full strength when taken internally. Start with drop drop
dissolved in glycerin, and then mixed with a glass of water or fruit
juice. Slowly increase according to your reactions. Work up to about
eight drops (or a corresponding number of pills) in a full glass of
water two or three times a day until symptoms disappear. When the
organisms you are trying to kill begin to die, the toxins are released,
leading you to feel some discomfort or tiredness. If the symptoms
become too uncomfortable, reduce the extract a little and begin to
increase it again when you are feeling better. Since grapefruit seed
extract can be very bitter, the debittered powder used in capsules may
be a preferable choice. For children, a capsule can be opened and the
powder mixed into juice. In pill form, it can take 100-300 mg. per day
to be effective for adults. One or two drops in a glass of water once
or twice a day can act as a preventative against traveler's diarrhea.
The extract is nontoxic and environmentally friendly. Caution should be
used if there is a sensitivity to citrus. The extract is not absorbed
into the intestinal tissue, so can be safely taken for long periods of
time, as in the cases of Giardia and yeast infections where it may take
months to eliminate.
Horsemint (Monarda punctata)
Can be used both internally and externally against worms, bacteria, and
fungus. Horsemint contains a large amount of thymol, making it a
powerful disinfecting agent. Almost 50% of this oil is excreted in the
urine when taken internally, making it useful as a urinary antiseptic.
There have been no reports of toxicity, but it can be irritating when
applied topically. A significant amount of this plant would be needed
to be toxic when taken internally.
Olive leaf extract (Olea europea)
Is a bitter substance produced by the olive tree, but eliminated from
olives once they are cured. A new processing technique applied to an
old herbal remedy has produced a nontoxic herbal parasite remedy. Olive
leaf is also effective against fungi, molds, worms, and bacteria, and
can be used for yeast infections. For about 4,000 years, countries of
the Mediterranean, as well as those bordering, have chopped up olive
leaves in liquid or salad form to prevent and treat parasitic
infections. It also proved to be superior to quinine for treating
malaria, but not as easy to administer, so quinine became the preferred
treatment. Studies in the 1960s confirmed that olive leaf extract has
the ability to counteract the malaria protozoa. The manufacturing
method of this product is very important, otherwise, the ingredients
bind rapidly to serum proteins in the blood, rendering them virtually
useless in living organisms. Those treating parasites that are causing
chronic fatigue syndrome or are harboring a large infestation of
parasites may experience extreme fatigue when starting this form of
therapy. Headaches, muscle or joint pain, or flu-like symptoms may also
appear. It is important to reduce the therapeutic dosage to a more
comfortable level, and then increasing it slowly, allowing the body
time to detoxify at a slower pace. Normally, olive leaf extract does
not produce any adverse side effects.
Picrasma excelsa (Quassia amara)
Is a common Jamaican tree that produces a bitter tonic useful for
killing amoebas, giardia, malaria, pinworms, and some roundworms. The
herb does not have an odor, but does have an intensely bitter taste,
which distinguishes the pure form from adulterations. This herb
contains a group of alkaloids known to inhibit protozoa from
reproducing by affecting their basic metabolic processes. Considerable
evidence suggests that quassia is also effective against mosquito
larva. Toxic symptoms are rare, but if they occur, it is usually in the
form of diarrhea or vomiting. It is also a nontoxic, inexpensive, and
effective means of treating head lice.
Pinkroot (Spigelia marilandicus)
Is a highly effective vermicide originally used by Native Americans,
who introduced it to settlers and early physicians. The plant has the
ability to cure infections from intestinal worms and is even effective
for treating the fevers caused by parasites. It can produce some
unpleasant side effects if large doses are taken; therefore, only the
recommended lower doses should be given to children.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum)
Roots had widespread use against tapeworms until less toxic substances
were discovered. The fruit rinds and bark are very astringent and
effectively used to remove tapeworms and roundworms. The plant does
contain an alkaloid that can be toxic if consumed in large quantities,
producing such symptoms as muscle weakness, dizziness, vomiting, and
Has proven to be 100% effective against some lethal protozoa and will
also decrease inflammation associated with parasite infection. It is a
natural antibiotic found in leaf buds or the bark of some trees. Bees
collect it and add their own enzymes to line their hives, making the
environment a sterile place. Propolis can create an antibiotic
disease-fighting reaction to almost any illness, stimulating the thymus
gland, and enhancing the body's immune system.
Pumpkin seeds (Cucurbita pepo)
Is a traditional remedy for worms, used for both animals and humans.
Seeds of several varieties of the species Cucurbita have long held the
reputation for paralyzing, but not killing, worms. However, the viable
substance that affects the worms varies even in seeds of the same
species, causing reliability to vary too much to be accurate.
Therefore, it is important to take a natural laxative to move the worms
out of the digestive system before they regain function. It is
important to leave the fine inner skin beneath the shell intact.
Children are given ten to fifteen seeds a day, and adults, twenty to
thirty seeds a day for about two weeks, increasing the number of seeds
if tapeworms are a problem. Follow this with a laxative about one hour
after each dose of seeds. The treatment can be repeated as often as
necessary without any harmful side effects -- as long as the laxatives
are not taken over a lengthy period of time. When dealing with
tapeworms, it is important that the entire worm be expelled, or else it
will grow back. Daily consumption of pumpkin seeds may help to prevent
parasites from taking up residence in the first place. Another
suggestion is for pumpkin seeds and watermelon seeds to be ground to a
powder and mixed with a little aloe vera juice and taken on an empty
stomach every morning.
Red clover (Trifolium pratense)
Will kill flukes in all stages when used with cloves, black walnut hulls (green), and wormwood.
The garden variety (Salvia officinalis) and thyme were both used by the
Romans as digestive aids, as well as for the treatment of intestinal
worms and bacteria. Sage was often mixed with wormseed or white wine to
relieve diarrhea or dysentery. Garden sage is not toxic, but excessive
amounts can cause a dry mouth or local irritation.
Sarsaparilla (Smilax ornata)
Is a useful blood purifier that can also be used externally to treat
skin parasites. When toxins absorbed by the intestines are excessive
because the liver is not filtering properly, toxins begin to circulate
in the bloodstream. Therefore, this herb can play a vital role in
assisting the liver to filter and bind toxic compounds more
effectively, especially those released from parasites or bacteria.
Senna (Cassia angustifolia and Cassia senna)
Is an ancient herb known for its laxative action. Today it is one of
the most popular stimulant laxatives and is generally regarded as being
safe for short term use, but long term dependence can develop. Senna's
chief action is on the lower bowel, causing mucus secretions with rapid
contractions. It is best to use it in combination with such other
aromatic herbs as cardamom, ginger, fennel, etc., to reduce the
cramping. As in the case of Cascara, Senna can be used one hour after
eating pumpkin seeds.
Slippery elm (Ulmus fulra)
Is a soothing herb that quickly heals irritations of the intestinal
tract, including ulcers and Crohn's-like symptoms often caused by
parasites. It also normalizes bowel function, relieving constipation or
diarrhea. In addition, it is an excellent binder and cleanser.
Externally, slippery elm can be moistened and applied to sores, wounds,
and infected areas.
Tansy (Tanacetum vulgaris)
Is largely used for expelling worms in children, but only under the
supervision of a qualified herbalist since there are some side effects
if used improperly.
Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
Is a powerful all-purpose antiinfective, especially against Trichomonas
vaginalis, when used as a daily douche (0.4% solution of oil in 1 quart
of water twice a day).
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
Is an ancient remedy used as a digestive aid, antiseptic, and for
treatment of intestinal worms. It should not be used in large amounts,
however. Externally, it can be used as a mouthwash and for cleansing
the skin. It will destroy such fungal infections as athlete's foot and
such skin parasites as scabies, crabs, and lice. For these purposes, a
tincture or an essential oil is used. When used internally, essential
oils leave very little margin for error, so use it only with
supervision from a knowledgeable herbalist.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa)
Is a common root used in Indian dishes. It has long been used to treat
dysentary and to expel worms from the body. It is also known as a body
purifier, and can be use both internally and externally to heal wounds.
Turmeric contains a substance that limits the inflammation caused by
extensive tissue damage from parasites. Because turmeric may also
stimulate the production of bile, it should be avoided when treating
the amoeba, Giardia, since bile stimulates the growth and proliferation
of this organism. Regular use poses no threat, but high doses can cause
Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium)
Is an ancient remedy used to kill various parasites -- as indicated by
the name. It is effective against a variety of worms, including the
giant intestinal roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides). Wormwood is
intensely bitter, and parasites are generally repelled because of this.
The dried and powdered flowers are excellent for expelling worms, and
the leaves are sufficient to eliminate all live worms and many other
parasites. WORMWOOD IS MORE TOXIC WHEN USED ALONE, so it is best to
combine it with other herbs. The oil of wormwood is especially toxic.
Avoid giving it to children. The Chinese wormwood (Artemisia annua) is
known as the sweet variety used to treat the parasite that causes
malaria, Plasmodium falciparum. It contains the chemical artemesin, not
found in any other species of Artemesia, and is now being viewed as a
possible prototype for a new antimalarial medicine. This herb shows a
broad spectrum of activity against protozoa and yeast. It is also
effective against the liver fluke (Clonorchis sinensis), the blood
fluke (Schistosoma japonicum), and the amoeba Giardia and other
protozoa. This herb has a low toxicity level, and no side effects have
been reported. It appears safe to use, even with heart, liver, or
kidney diseases, as well as during pregnancy. The herb is not only
effective, but quick-acting. It is able to cross the blood-brain
barrier, making it effective against amoebic infections of the brain.
High doses of antioxidant supplementation should be withheld during
treatment of protozoan infection, especially when using A. annua. When
taking for a Cryptosporidium infection, use 1000 mg. three times a day
for twenty days. This herb may be given along with grapefruit seed
extract or other antiparasitic herb. When treating malaria with A.
annua, use for ten days. A. cina is very effective against worms. Since
this herb is very bitter, it is advised that children take it in pill
form. A. cina combines well with Cassia marilandica (American senna).
HOWEVER, this herb can be fatal, so it must be dosed out accurately and
only under the care of a knowledgeable herbalist.
Yellow gentian (Gentiana lutea)
Is an ancient herb used for treating malaria. This gastric stimulant is
used to improve digestion, and has antiseptic properties. It also
possesses a strong activity against the protozoa, Entamoeba
histolytica, as well as expelling other intestinal worms. Yellow
gentian strengthens the body system, and is an excellent tonic when
combined with an herbal laxative. This prevents gentian from becoming
toxic. In addition, because it is a bitter herb, combining it with an
aromatic herb, makes it more palatable. It is not well tolerated,
however, by those with high blood pressure or pregnant women.
How long are the lifespan of parasites that live in the eyes?
Seems like the longer they live there, the bigger they will get. Therefore, the older they are when they die, the more necrotic tissue the body will have to break down and eliminate, and the greater chance of a local infection.
When I started giving Diatamaceous Earth to my dog, his eyes got red and itchy. I bought some homeopathic eye drops, treated him and started giving him less DE. His eyes cleared up.
My eyes itch when I take DE too. The floaters in my eyes zoom when I take Clear.
There are worms in me that bite?/sting?/stick? me. It feels like something is whipping it's tail like a scorpion and sticking me. The pain is similar to sticking yourself with a needle while sewing (only it occurs internally, of course).
I used to have a sensation in my throat that woke me up at night. It felt like an ant stinging me, and made me cough violently.
When I took wormseed oil, I got the whipping needle stick sensation in my right eye, which often quivers after I take DE. I ignored the needle stick sensation and continued with the next dose.
If I have to choose between possibly going blind in one eye now, or living with a worm inside of me that is going to kill me via long miserable death, and probably make me go blind before death, anyway, I'll take the risk.
They are ignorant little robotic creatures that will eventually kill me if I do nothing and ignore them. They have to leave my body and find somewhere appropriate to exist. Otherwise they die.
Maybe if you spend few weeks on supplements for the eyes before you begin the anthelmintics, and continue supporting the eyes with supplements when you go after the parasites, it would reduce the chance of an infection should a big one die.
Lutein, bilberry, eyebright, homeopathic eyedrops for immune system, etc, etc.
For what it's worth--I have had those thin clear parasites in my tear ducts-- and so far have not had any experience like that Indian woman did.
I also make sure to rinse my eyes with distilled water and Sea Salt -- or else canned saline solution. They dont have things like that over in India, and the conditions in most of India isnt very sanitary. If a person puts contaminated fingers in their eyes to rub them alot, the eye will get easily infected to begin with.
Especially places like Calcutta. Mother Teresa was a true saint--because she came from a very wealthy family to live permanently with these people--- in all the squalor. Cows and cow poop are all over their streets, and it gets pretty hot there too. Chickens live inside many of the homes with the people too.
What I did was get some warmed up spring water ,fill an eye cup with it- and crush some coarse Sea Salt into it, letting it dissolve.
Then just rinse the eye with the eyecup filled with the water/seasalt. Then you can also rinse your entire face and nasal passages with that as well. It will flush out any nasal parasites-- especially if you mix in Eucalyptus oil. (though dont use eucalyptus oil with the EYE rinse!)
I like the genuine solar dried --no additives- Sea Salt . Kosher Kiwi makes unrefined Pacific Salt from New Zealand. with all it's trace elements intact. I use that-- it was only $4.00 a 26 oz. container.

Human Intestinal Parasites Worms
Human intestinal parasites worms infection air food water cause constipation, stomach bloating, disease health problems. Other symptoms include anemia, asthma, diarrhea, digestive disorders, fatigue, low immune system, nervousness, skin rash. Most will not face this reality or even want to think about this subject and will continue in their suffering.
There can be over 100 different types of parasites worms living in human bodies. Some are microscopic in size while others can be seen quite easily. These common organisms can be found everywhere in our environment, in the air we breath, in the water we drink, or in the food we eat.
Parasite is an organism that lives on or in other organisms from which it obtains nutrients to live and causes harm in the process. Its name comes from the Greek word para that means beside, and sitos, which means food.
Most parasites require a host to complete their life cycle. Animals can also serve as a host. The parasite will vary in size from the smallest one-thousandth of a micron to whale Tapeworms a hundred feet long.
Vitamin Mineral Natural Health Food
Parasites worms can invade your bodies through food and water intake, through a transmitting agent (like a mosquito), sexual conduct or through the nose and skin. Once established, they will eat the same foods you eat or they will eat you.
People with intestinal parasite infections are usually under-nourished and weak, infected with viral, fungal, or bacteria, and have various types of chemical and metal poisoning. Human intestinal parasites can be present in any disease, in any person, at any age.
They are responsible for many health problems because they secrete toxins and steal the vital nutrients from our bodies. They can irritate or exaggerate other health problems you may be experiencing. Everyone is at risk and under their mercy during parasitic infections.
We create the perfect living environment for parasites when the bowel becomes ineffective in the elimination of our waste products. The build-up of fecal material on the walls of the colon is attributed to constipation and the amounts of junk food, chemicals, bad fats and sweets we consume.
We poison ourselves from our own toxic waste and the waste from these creatures (auto intoxication) when this ideal habitat for is created. Testing for parasites are only available for about five percent of the known varieties with twenty-percent accuracy.
Cancer cases are afflicted with worms that often lump together and look like tumors. Female worms can release 3,000 to 200,000 eggs per day depending on their type. This is a topic that most people do not want to discuss, let alone think about, but now reality must be faced.
These topics are very important for total detox and your well-being. Most doctors are not trained to recognize the symptoms of parasitic infections. The only way to avoid the problems associated with parasite infections is by educating yourself.
Parasites, Some Different Varieties
There are 3200 varieties of parasites in the four major categories, Protozoa, Trematoda, Cestoda and Nematoda.
Nematodes; common roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides), hookworm, whipworm, pinworm, heart worm, Strongyloides, Stercoralis, Ancylostoma, caninum, toxocara worm and trichinosis. Size can vary from .2 to 35 centimeters.
Roundworm look similar to an earthworm and can produce 200,000 eggs a day. Approximately 1,008 million people are infected, making it the most common worldwide. The most frequent symptom from roundworm is upper abdominal discomfort. Other symptoms are asthma, eye pain, insomnia, and rashes due to the secretions or waste products from the worms.
Large numbers they can cause blockages in the intestinal tract, hemorrhage when penetrating the intestinal wall, appendicitis, peritonitis, abscesses in the liver, hemorrhagic pancreatitis, loss of appetite, and insufficient absorption of digested foods. Adults grow to 15 inches long.
Hookworm larvae penetrate the skin. When hookworm reach adulthood, they can sap the victim's strength, vitality and overall well-being. Young worms use their teeth to burrow through the intestinal wall and feed on your blood. Symptoms from hookworm are Iron deficiency, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, craving to eat soil, protein deficiency, dry skin and hair, skin irritations, edema, distended abdomen, stunted growth, delayed puberty, mental dullness, cardiac failure and death. (1/2 inch long)
Pinworm can infect one in five children. Symptoms are itching and irritation of the anus or vagina, digestive disorders, insomnia, irritability or nervousness. Female worms crawl out of the anus and lay about 15,000 eggs per day. Once airborne, the eggs can survive about two days anywhere in your living environment.
Worldwide, about 500 million are infected with pinworm. The worm is white and can grow to about a half inch in length.
Infections from whipworm are estimated at several hundred million worldwide. Symptoms of whipworms are bloody stools, pain in the lower abdomen, weight loss, rectal prolapse, nausea and anemia. Hemorrhage can occur when worms penetrate the intestinal wall and bacterial infections usually follow. 1 to 2 inches length.
Protozoa, the single cell parasites; amoebae, protozoa infections, neospora, Toxoplasmosis, cryptosporidium, giardia, Sarcocystis and Trichomonas vaginalis.
Amoebae are an irregular shaped microorganism that infects the end of the smaller intestine and colon. Amebiasis is the most common infection and caused by the species Entamoeba histolytica.
Amoebae also release an enzyme that causes ulcers or abscesses where they can enter the bloodstream. They can eventually reach other organs like the brain or liver. (25 micro meters in diameter)
Cryptosporidium is associated with water-borne outbreaks. The victim might experience diarrhea and abdominal pain lasting for about ten days.
Giardia is the most prevalent intestinal parasite in humans and found in drinking water. Giardia resides in the smaller intestine and at times in the gall bladder. Millions of these giardia organisms will coat the intestinal walls, prevents the absorption of nutrients and later causing illness. Symptoms are mild to moderate abdominal cramps, intestinal gas, light colored stools, bad absorption, weakness, chills, stomach bloating and diarrhea. (14 um x 10 um)
Trichomonas vaginalis is a pathogen that resides in the vagina in females and the urethra, epididymis, and swelling in the prostate gland in males. In women there is a yellowish discharge accompanied by itching and burning.
Malaria, the most prevalent and debilitating disease among the protozoa type is caused by Plasmodium. About two million people die annually from Malaria.
Cestodes (Tapeworm); bladder worms, pork tapeworm, broad fish, dog tapeworm, dwarf and rat tapeworm. Broad fish Tapeworm may grow to 35 feet long and live ten years inside a persons intestines. Some Tapeworm can lay as many as a million eggs per day. Their bodies are in separate segments with hooks and suction cups on their skull.
Trematodes (Fluke); Flatworm, bladder, blood, liver, lung, kidney and intestinal fluke. Human infections of fluke s (Schistosomes) are in excess of 250 million worldwide. They can cause severe disease of the gastrointestinal tract, bladder, liver and destroy blood cells. Size varies from 1 to 2.5 centimeters in length (1/2 to 3 inches long).
Spirochete are very tiny organisms that are spiral-shaped, and multiply in the blood and lymphatic system. Spirochete (largest), Saprospira, Cristispira, Treponema (smallest), and many more. The host or carrier is usually lice, ticks, fleas, mites, and flying insects, which is then transmitted to humans. Spirochete are responsible for relapsing fever, infectious jaundice, Lyme disease, sores, ulcers, Vincent angina and Wyles disease.
Some parasites worms have the ability to fool bodies into thinking they are a normal part of the tissue or organ and the immune system will not fight off the intruders. When these alien invaders are established in our bodies, they do several things:
They can make Swiss cheese out of your organs. Worm infections can cause physical trauma by perforating (burrowing) the intestines, the circulatory system, the lungs, the liver or the whole bodies.
They can erode, damage or block certain organs by lumping together in balls or tumors. They can be mistaken for cancer tumors, and travel into the brain, heart and lungs.
They rob us of our vital vitamin and mineral nutrients, and amino acids needed for digestion. Some become anemic (anemia) and are drowsy after meals.
They give off certain metabolic waste products (toxic waste) that poison our bodies. This particular condition is called verminous in-toxification. Most have trouble disposing of the toxins that are re-absorbed through the intestines. Your bodies have to work twice as hard to remove these toxic waste products.
Depresses the immune system, which leads to further degeneration, fatigue and illness.
They can destroy cells faster than cells can be regenerated.
Some conditions that promote parasitic infections are excess mucus, an imbalance in the intestinal flora, chronic constipation, and a toxic internal environment.
Nose is supposed to act as a natural airway for respiration and the main inlet for oxygen. It also acts as an air conditioner, by filtering, moistening and warming the air that is breathed. The hairs and mucus membranes help prevent dust from entering the rest of the respiratory tract. The nose is responsible for smell and gives your voice its own characteristic tone.
Problems associated with the nose are sinus (sinusitis, an inflammation), nasal polyp and tumors. These can cause restrictions in the nasal passage hinder the amount of oxygen needed.
Bones surrounding the nose contain honeycomb (air filled cavities between the outer and inner layers of the skull) known as the facial sinuses. These comprise of 2 frontal, one sphenoid, 2 ethmoidal and 2 maxillary sinuses. Each sinus drains mucus into the nasal passages through tiny ducts or channels.
Sinus inflammation or infections can be caused by an abscess in an upper tooth or from bacteria and viruses. Parasites or candida can also take up residence in all those little nooks and crannies, and they are the hardest to eliminate. After time, the sinuses can become encrusted in toxic matter like in the colon. Mycoplasmas infecting the sinus will cause a drainage with a bad nasal odors. Swabbing the inside of the nose with a drop or two of Oil of Oregano on an ear swab will help over time.
Polyp or tumors, which bulge out into the nasal passage may also be filled with parasites. It is important to clear the nasal passages so you can breathe in the Breath of Life, more oxygen. Self-examination of the nasal passages is possible with a flash light held in the front of the nose and looking in the mirror. You should see a clear airway almost to the throat. If you can only see in about an inch, problems may exist.
Cleaning if required, dip an ear swab into 3 percent Hydrogen-Peroxid and swab inside the nose. It may be necessary to plug the other side and breathe in slightly to get the hydrogen peroxide past the obstructions. Let it sit until the sinuses open and then blow out the excess mucus. Repeated use will show where parasites may be dwelling under the tissue by the bubbling and oxidation effect of the H2O2. With the aid of tweezers, it is possible to pull out the parasites and waste matter for disposal.
Another test for parasites is using Black-Walnut oil on the swab. One or two drops are sufficient to start. If there is a burning sensation and twitching of the toes or it feels like a rock inside after a few days or scaling may appear on the outside are indications that parasites may exist. Applying ozonated oil or vitamin E on the dry skin will help soften the tissue.
Another method is direct applications of the ozone in the ears and in the nose. Insert the hose into each nostril while closing eyes and holding breath during each treatment. Sneezing will occur and the sinuses will open. Do as tolerated.
Extreme skin reactions can occur when drinking Black-Walnut oil in water for the elimination of worms. When they are exposed to the oil, they will eliminate their toxins to protect their living environment. The poisons are absorbed into the blood causing a rash on the skin. To avoid this condition, start out slow and increase dosage over a longer period.
Treatments can be followed up by adding the oils to your vitamins and supplements for a daily maintenance.
Humans with worm infections may feel bloated, tired or hungry, allergies, asthma, gas, digestive disorders, unclear thinking or feel toxic. Damage and symptoms will vary on the type of parasite infection.
Some people may not have any symptoms from infection. About 25 percent may only have a few aches and pains that they can ignore. The quality of life and health may be compromised in another 55 percent. Those who are disabled from parasites are about 5 percent. In the USA, about 85 percent is infected with parasites.
Parasite Signs, Adults, Children
Allergies, Many allergies are caused by worm infections. Tissue becomes inflamed and reactions to foods are the result when eosinophils (white blood cells) are increased due to them. Extreme skin rashes with blisters and food allergies or sensitivities may result.
Anemia, Worms leach nutrients from bodies causing anemia. When they are present in large numbers, they can create enough blood loss to cause anemia or iron deficiency in some people.
Constipation, Some worms can obstruct certain organs like the colon causing constipation, liver and the bile duct.
Diarrhea, Most of the time diarrhea is nature's way of removing toxins.
Fatigue, Symptoms include tiredness, flue-like symptoms, apathy, depression and a lack of concentration.
Gas and Stomach Bloating, Some parasites live in the upper intestine, which can cause both gas and stomach bloating.
Immune Dysfunction, Parasites depress the immune system by decreasing immunoglobulin A.
Nervousness, The waste products from parasites irritate the nervous system, resulting in anxiety and restlessness.
Other Signs of Parasites in Children
Blisters appear on the inside of the lower lip, wiping of the nose, restlessness and grinding of the teeth at night, dark circles under the eyes, hyperactive, bed wetting, headaches, sensitive to light, twitching eyelid, gum, rectum, or nose bleeding are signs they may have parasites.
There are many natural foods, herbal cleansing products, and essential oils that one can take to rid themselves of worms. When taking herbal combinations, it is best taking them on an empty stomach. The best way to treat parasitic infection is to detoxify using a nutritional rebuilding program that will restore balance and the immune system. Everyone infected with worms is deficient in the essential nutrients.
Parasites are a problem, it is very important to take larger doses of plant-derived nutrients due to deficiencies. Some worms suck your vitamins and minerals directly out of the blood. Others absorb your nutrients through their outer skin layer. The nutrients need replacing on a daily basis.
High carbohydrate diet, low in protein, and high in alkaline has been found to make parasitic infections worse. Sugar should also be avoided because parasites thrive on it and it is possible you could have candida. This candida or yeast infections create an environment in the colon that equals the environment needed for them to thrive. Foods that lower pH from high alkaline conditions in the colon are apple cider vinegar and cranberry juice.
Pumpkin seeds and onions mixed with soy milk is another remedy for worms. Herbal combinations for blood fluke are milkweed, pennyroyal and black walnut. Herbal combinations for liver fluke are cloves, goldenrod and goldenseal root. Bitter melon is effective against pinworm. Fasting on raw pineapples for three days helps with tapeworm infestation.
Another remedy for prevention is mixing one or two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. Alternatively, you can take one tablespoon daily of 1 part apple cider vinegar, 2 parts apple juice, 1 part apple brandy.
Constipation problems can be helped with friendly bacteria, cascara sagrada bark, chamomile tea, or elder flowers. Licorice added to herbal teas has a slight laxative action.
Oxygen supplement is more effective against parasites and cleaning the intestinal tract than herbs. High doses of herbs may make them retreat to the colon but to kill and eliminate the parasites you need to flush them out by colon irrigation and ozone.
One can save money and create your own herb formulas by buying herbs in bulk, capsules, and a capsule machine for filling the capsules. Mix the herbs equally and purchase high quality only.
Prevent, Eliminate Parasites
Healthy immune system is the best defense against parasites and disease. Some of the things you can do to reduce the risk of parasitic infections are:
Wash all fruits and vegetables. Scrape off the wax substance on the outer surface on any fruit or vegetable with a knife before washing. Anything with a nick or recess can harbor just about anything and should be cut out. Avoid eating grapes with open splits. Washing in ozonated water, hydrogen peroxide (1 teaspoon per gallon of water), or bleach (add 1/2 teaspoon to each gallon and soak for 10 minutes) will kill parasites. Rinse well after to remove bleach residue. Some prefer to wash them in chlorinated water, but these things are organic in nature. Chlorine and organics do not go well together because of the carcinogenic compounds that are produced.
Thoroughly cook meats and fish. Do not eat raw or uncooked meats or fish. Check for worms, especially on fish. Spray with hydrogen peroxide or wash in ozonated water before cooking. Keep all work surfaces clean.
Drink pure water. Parasites are associated with many water-borne outbreaks and are highly resistant to conventional methods of disinfecting. Water that is properly purified with ozone is free of parasites.
Practice good personal hygiene. Wash your hands before eating and after going to the bathroom, changing diapers, or handling pets. Keep your fingernails short and clean. Parasites can live for two months under the fingernails.
Keep your living environment clean. Breathing the dust in your house can contain human skin, soil particles, or fecal material from dust mites and cockroaches. An easy test to determine if this is a problem is by looking across the room when the sunlight is shining through a window and checking for particles floating in the air. Then let the kids run around for a few minutes and recheck. The elimination of carpets reduces this problem considerably.
Do not walk barefoot on warm, moist soil or while working in the garden. Parasites are abundant in soil and can absorb (penetrate) through skin cells. Fertilizers are added to garden soil and it is the pets favorite place to go. Use gloves and shoes for protection.
Swimming in rivers, lakes, ponds, or public swimming pools. Avoid swallowing or drinking the water while swimming anywhere. Avoid swimming if cuts or open sores are present.
If pets are infested with parasites, de-worm and keep them outside. You are at a higher risk in contracting worms when pets are allowed indoors. Dogs and cats are host to many parasites that humans can contract. Garlic added to their food will help control some parasites. Animals can spread 240 diseases to humans because of parasites.
Overuse of antibiotics. Reducing the numbers of friendly bacteria in the colon allows for the proliferation of parasites.
Global travel. Ten years ago, you might have been at a higher risk for parasite infections when traveling to another country. Today, you may be at a higher risk to infection by staying home.
Use more cloves with every meal. Adding some cloves to foods will help kill the eggs from parasites in the intestinal tract. Cloves added to coffee or herbal teas adds a little different taste.
Total annihilation of these invaders you have to get serious and declare ALL OUT WAR and fight back with the most powerful weapons in your arsenal. Your best defense is knowledge; knowing the enemy and the harm they cause. Then, attack with all the weapons that follow without letting up, and you will be the victor instead of the victim.
Most effective treatment or cleansing product for the elimination of parasites in the large intestine is to cleanse the colon with ozonated water and hydrogen peroxide by colonic irrigation. This method is extremely lethal to all types of bad bacteria, food pathogens, parasites and viruses. As the colon becomes cleaner, the ozone and oxygen will reach other organs where parasites may be a problem.
Why does ozone work so well? Healthy cells and friendly bacteria are aerobic, which means they need oxygen to survive. Unhealthy cells, parasites, pathogens and viruses are anaerobic, they can only survive in a non oxygenated environment. Change their living environment and you WIN THE WAR.
Article in The Nutrition and Dietary Consultant/May 1996, says, it is estimated that 200 million people are infected by intestinal parasites. It also estimates that one in four people worldwide is infected by roundworm.
No one knows the total number or types of parasites living in our environment. They hardly ever get full credit for the destruction they do to the human bodies. Only a few get credit for the people they harm.
High infection rate in the USA is surprising to many, but most of these creatures have always been living within our bodies. When the immune system weakens, they can grow to numbers that cause physical harm.
People poison their bodies with chemicals, drugs, processed and over cooked foods, it starts the process that allows the parasites to take over our inner environment. When they take over, they are in control, whether you know it or not. When we make the wrong choices and do not take preventive measures, they win.
