I would like to say that my responses are not meant to be inflammatory but thought provoking. This is not an issue which side is right for the sake of argument but rather a journey of learning so people can find their cure.
I have read more accounts of people getting well from pharmas than natural remedies. parasites create a living hell in the body via immune reactions (ROS/RNS) reactive oxygen/nitrogen species, immune shifting, endocrine disturbances, pain etc, than any pharma could ever hope to. Furthermore the ROS/RNS damage tissues (liver, kidney, cell membranes, etc).
This is an article on liver damage caused by oxidative stress. Note the author points out that endotoxins created by pathogens create damage, not just drugs. The author goes on to say that the ROS from the immune cycles damage mitochondrial functioning (damages cells and cell membranes rendering them weakened).
