Parasites infect both people and animals and come in thousands of types. Think of them as miniature snakes, some of which are visible to the naked eyes and some that are microscopic. Like all living creatures, they forage and eat and digest and, yes, that, too. Inside the body, we can think of them as intraerythrocytic, i.e., dwelling mainly inside red blood cells, as swimming in the plasma, or moving about, perhaps sometimes in the stomach or other parts of the gastrointestinal track but going basically wherever they want. They have means of locomotion and very distinct hunting habits. If we think of snakes as venomous or opportunistic, such as grabbing something through quickness, or perhaps more like a boa constrictor or python, we have an idea of the how the miniature versions function.
Parasitic infections are extremely easy to contract through failure to take adequate hygienic precautions, through ingestion, through penetration of the skin via bites or burrowing under the skin. They lay lots of eggs, thousands of them at a time, and while generally easy to remove or destroy, eggs may hatch so recurrence of symptoms is an ongoing risk.
My own experience in finding parasites in live blood analyses and treating them is that all circulating parasites can generally be killed within 36 hours, most treatments require repetition because of the eggs that hatch and the life styles of patients that remain unchanged.
To make this as clear as possible, if one is living in the tropics, reinfection is very likely unless serious precautionary measures are taken. So, treatment often needs to be repeated at various intervals simply to keep the parasite population to a minimum. If one only visited the tropics and picked up an infection, one can generally clear the parasites from the system in one-to-four months, but the risk of reinfection is much less unless one travels again to the tropics.
The same would be true if living on a farm since the exposures to risk are repeated daily. Basically, it would be necessary for all people and animals and undergo treatment in order to limit the risks to others.
A major source of infection is raw fish, but one can be a vegetarian and order a salad at a restaurant that did not clean the cutting boards and knives sufficiently. Some sources say, one can become infected simply by using a pen at the checkout when signing for a credit card transaction . . . if an infected person contaminated the pen.
Raw food is a dietary choice of many people; but if the produce is not cleaned properly, the risk of parasitic infection is much higher with raw food than with cooked food.
I have described myself as a blood behaviorist. I got my first view of parasites when daring to turn on the light of microscope belonging to someone else. That was more or less 25 years ago, but I had read a lot about tropical infections after living in Asia for many years.
Let’s start with the parasites that incubate inside red blood cells. In darkfield, the infected cells look quite different from normal cells, but the invaders are safe inside the RBCs until the cell ruptures and releases the merozoites into the plasma. This is when the patient feels the worst and has the most symptoms such as fever, achiness, and perhaps vomiting. It is also the best time to administer herbal remedies. Malaria is the most common of the intraerythrocytic parasitic infections, followed perhaps by babesia.
If the herbs are taken when the rupture occurs, long-term risks will be lessened. If ignored, the merozoites will generally infect the liver and some additional red blood cells, so the cycle will keep repeating until the treatment is genuinely complete.
The number of infected cells varies so whether or not the patient will become anemic can be determined by monitoring the blood and paying close attention to symptoms. Many patients shiver despite being wrapped in blankets and being close to a fire or heater.
Parasites in Plasma
The parasites in the plasma are often unnoticed except if seen under a microscope by a keen observer. In general, they do not produce dramatic symptoms, but they are uninvited and have varying manners with respect to the host or hostess. The smaller ones tend to eat nutrients in the plasma, meaning the red blood cells will not have full payloads when delivering what is needed by other cells in the host’s body. Most of larger types of parasites in the the plasma eat red blood cells. The least offensive ones are very discriminating and eat only crenated red blood cells that are not long for this world anyway. The most dangerous gulp RBCs, maybe 25-40 at a time, and the strangest encircle their prey and seem to produce a toxin that kills the RBCs. This often has strange effects on the psyche of the victim.
Despite what textbooks say, RBCs have volition and the capacity to propel themselves. Under certain circumstances, they will flee danger, but with really dangerous parasites, the blood cells are unable to escape. These types of observations are obviously easier to make with a sample on a slide than when parasites are inside a major artery in the body. I am sure that inside the body, they often experience a tidal effect. Also, if there are toxins, there is no escape. However, on a slide, they often can escape. This can be seen when there are mycotoxins or annoying objects such as what Prof. Dr. Günther Enderlein called free chondrits.
Red blood cells can also participate in a coordinated effort. The image above shows how RBCs packed themselves against a parasite to immobilize it. This was all coordinated by a single white blood cell. Once the parasite was unable to move, the RBCs opened a corridor for the white blood cell to spray a section of the membrane of the parasite. It then blistered. This was repeated in numerous locations until the parasite died.
The next step in this fascinating process involves the corpse. If there are bacteria, they will eat the soft tissues of the parasite. This takes 5-6 days, during which time patients feel a little achy and maybe fatigued, but usually not sick enough to stay in bed. This is not a “bacterial infection”; rather, it is bacteria doing what bacteria are supposed to do. If the patient has been taking antibiotics or has somehow managed to wipe out friendly bacteria, the parasite will decompose through fermentation which is a somewhat nastier process.
In general, my observation is that parasites in the plasma are more active during the full moon, secondly at the new moon. To match the herbal remedies to the cycles, I created three formulas that are to be used in a sequence. Arjuna’s Arrows is the first. The story behind this is that being a pacifist, I did not want to kill parasites. I went so far as to have a session with an animal communicator to ask the parasites if they would leave of their own accord and what the conditions for that might be. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna that he belongs to the warrior caste and must defeat evil. The formula named after this counsel is to be used in the first 36 hours of the cleansing. While the patient is dealing with the disposal of the parasite corpses, they take Dragon Dreams, named so because many people had strange dreams of dragons during this phase. This is followed by Phoenix Rising to restore health in the plasma and nourish the blood cells, both red and white. Then, there is a respite from the new moon to the next full moon when the cycle is repeated. As noted, some people may need to repeat this several times, but each time tends to be easier and easier because there are almost no mature adult parasites in circulation.
The third type of parasite is visible and again comes in many shapes and sizes. They can sometimes be coaxed out of the body without killing them. It does not seem to work for everyone; but when it works, people, usually mothers of children under six or eight years of age have interesting stories to tell. One method is to hold a bowl of sweetened warm milk under the nose until the parasites are lured by the smell and voluntarily fall into the bowl. Another method, sorry for the graphic nature of this presentation, is to add black walnut extract to an oil, like sesame oil, and make a very oily soup. The black walnut sedates the parasites so they cannot hold onto the intestinal lining and they get flushed out. One has to be really committed to the doctrine of ahimsa to try this, but it sometimes works.
Otherwise, the same trio of herbs works on “intestinal” parasites as other parasites except that these parasites often forage wherever they think they can find a meal. Thus, the time to take the herbs is when starting a meal because the parasites are much more likely to be in the stomach when the host or hostess is eating. When the host or hostess is sleeping, the parasites can be quite active, and this is not good for other organs of the body like the liver, lungs, gonads, and, alas, even the brain.
This is a little frustrating for me because after writing about Brahmi Elixir, only one subscriber ordered a bottle, but several of the herbs in the formula not only improve memory but are anti-parasitic, acting on the brain and even joints . . . because parasites like synovial fluid.
