The Missing Secret to Health Maybe Co-factors

I learned that there may be a number of hidden causes that can make a person sick -- more than one microbial organism -- key word, co-factors. This article is to share what I’ve learned in my journey into health while dealing with co-factors; such as, parasites, mold, and bacteria that made me very ill. My research took me several years of studies, requiring my time of 8-12 hours each day of reading scientific articles, publications, and anything that I could get my hands on to grasp what I was encountering. I don't consider myself an expert; I have, however, retained a lot of information and there is still a lot that I need to understand about pathogenic organisms. Everyone is different, but some people have more going on inside of them than others with a vast interplay of microbes. My main focus here are three important co-factors -- worm parasites, molds/fungi and bacteria -- the first two are often overlooked.
Practitioners rely heavily on lab services in determining a diagnosis; sadly, many labs are poorly run institutions that may yield wrong results. Something within our health system needs to be changed in how people are being treated and standards need to be improved for determining correct diagnosis. If you read What Happened to Proven Science? it may help you understand how labs are run.
I know, for a fact, that doctors and alternative practitioners receive little training on microbes. Pathogenic organisms need to be taken more seriously with aggressive and appropriate treatment protocols. Unfortunately, misdiagnosis can occur or assumptions as to why a person may feel ill. Many treatment protocols are blind/broad spectrum (not individually designed for a person) that can become injurious by compounding health problems. This is the single most important message. If people are going to self-treat themselves or see a practitioner, they need to know more information than what has been provided, thus far. Simply, further education is needed for practitioners and the general public. I'm not suggesting that the three main co-factors are definitive causes for every person; there are many organisms or microbial structures that can affect a person's health. I am, however, sharing what I've found true for myself in a discovery process -- perhaps it will assist you and others with having an open-mind about these matters.
Oh My, Worm Parasites!
A person doesn't have to be a world traveler to become infected by parasites. When I discovered the horrifying fact that I was infested with worm parasites, I did what all of us have done – do whatever can be done to get rid of them! In the beginning, while experimenting on eliminating parasites I discovered that I didn’t carry one type but several species. There were four species that I could identify and there could have been more.
By the way, many years ago several physicians told me that I had a "virus" when I became acutely ill with a host of symptoms. The "virus" was never identified in the exhaustive weekly tests that were performed. I now firmly believe that it was parasite related. All the symptoms matched perfectly and years later the evidence was undeniable -- a reality that was hard to face. I had wondered how in the world was it missed! A prevailing attitude is that, "These things don't exist in America"; and, therefore, they weren't looking for it! Although I had an acute reaction to my parasitic infection, there are many people that exhibit nothing who are asymptomatic.
Later I learned that one worm parasite species will co-exist in colonies with other species even though it may appear that one is more prevalent. In my case Ascaris seemed to be the prevalent nuisance that I could identify and for this reason it became my focus for elimination; in truth, all parasites had to go because they were wrecking havoc on my body. For those who are searching to eliminate one parasite worm, I’d like to suggest that the scope of elimination might need to be broadened to 3-5 (or more) species of worm parasites and/or protozoan. I suggest this because of my own experience and extensive research that I’ve done on the subject. For instance, tapeworms can live in the body 30+ years. There are 6 different known tapeworm species; scientific documentation has been noted that humans can harbor 4-6 different tapeworms at the same time. Mind you, this is only tapeworm! The prevalence of parasite species is extensive.
Many people believe that when they have a colonoscopy performed parasites will be found. In many cases, they will not. The procedure does exactly what it is supposed to do -- examine the colon which is approximately 6 feet long. The endoscopy procedure goes as far as the stomach. In between the stomach and colon is approximately 20 feet of the upper or "small" intestinal tract. This particular area is rarely viewed unless surgical procedures are performed. It is also a favorite place where parasites like to set-up their colonies for nesting. Ascaris are the second largest intestinal worm where adults measure up to 16-18 inches; they're well-known as migratory animals who have been given the nickname of "travelers" or "wanderers". Although Ascaris are known for their migration, other parasites travel but are less aggressive. When I consulted my first doctor about the Ascaris problem, he was the one who first warned me about their travels; at the time, I had never heard of wandering parasites. He was sure that the medication that he prescribed would take care of the problem. Let me tell you, I was in for a big surprise later on when they became more aggressive while trying to kill them with the medication that I was given.
