Mechanism of Action
By Dr. Farzad Farahmand
In my previous articles I wrote about parasitic infections and infestations, how they are acquired, transmitted and the symptoms they produce as a result of their presence in the different organs and systems of the body, not limited to the digestive system. In this article I’d like to first talk a little bit about the mechanism of action of parasites on the body from a more scientific perspective.
Parasite’s Mechanism of Action
Parasitic infections and infestations are considered as one of the most undiagnosed health challenges with no geographic boundaries, which often go unnoticed. Despite available laboratory tests that are mostly limited to the digestive system, there is no known method of accurately measuring the presence of parasites throughout the body. Parasites currently infect more than two billion people worldwide. Scientists estimate that half the people in the world will be infected with some type of parasite by the year 2025.
Contrary to popular belief, the presence of parasites in the body is not necessarily limited to just the digestive system. Parasite’s eggs can be carried by the systemic circulation to other organs in the body and can enter the organs through penetration into their mucous lining.
A comprehensive parasite cleanse can maximize the absorption of nutrients and elimination of toxins in the digestive process. Some parasites can irritate or inflame the coating of the intestinal wall, causing inadequate absorption of nutrients, in particular fatty substances that are absolutely essential for the proper functioning of the body. In addition, due to their shape and size they can physically obstruct certain organs. Heavy infections can block the common bile duct and the intestinal tract, making elimination of toxins more infrequent and difficult.
Certain parasites, primarily protozoa, produce hormone like substances or prostaglandins, found in different tissues. Prostaglandins increase Sodium and Chloride loss, causing watery stools. Diarrhea in this case is a direct result of parasites rather than the body’s way of getting rid of infectious organisms.
It is found that parasites are found in highest concentration, mostly in pork products such as bacon, ham, hot dog, cold cuts and pork chops. Beef, chicken, lamb and even raw fish such as sushi can also be contaminated.
Some parasites love sugar and if you are a person who craves sugar, you may have a sugar loving parasite.
Parasites can play a role in activating the body’s immune system to produce more Eosinophil granulocytes which are components of the white blood cells in the blood, specifically responsible to combat parasites. Eosinophils also control the mechanisms associated with allergic reactions, such as pathologically with asthma, dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, and certain eye diseases.
Parasites have also been associated with rashes, hives, weeping eczema and allergy type skin reactions. Protozoan infections in particular can cause itchy dermatitis, swelling and sore, itchy cutaneous ulcers.
Some intestinal parasites, in addition to attaching to the mucosal lining of the intestine and robbing the host of vital nutrients, can also cause sufficient blood loss and result in iron deficiency or Pernicious Anemia.
Central Nervous System:
Parasitic metabolic wastes and toxic substances can irritate the Central Nervous System. This, together with the malabsoption of essential Amino Acids, and Vitamins necessary for improving the Chemistry and the proper functioning of the Brain, can cause a variety of mental problems such as Depression, Anxiety, Restlessness, Mood swings and more. That is why often times, after completing a parasite cleanse program, many claim that their mates or relatives have become a lot more patient and pleasant. In addition, after a parasite cleanse patients often report a significant improvement in their performance at work and in their interpersonal relationships.
Joint and Muscle pain:
Parasites can migrate and become enclosed in sacs and encyst in the joint fluid and also in muscles, causing Arthritis, joint pain and muscle pain. Joint and muscle pain can also result from tissue damage as a result of parasites compromising the body’s immune system.
Parasites as intelligent creatures:
The immediate question that comes to mind when people are informed of Parasites is how can a parasite possibly live in the body without you even knowing that it’s there? The answer to this question is very simple. The purpose of a parasite is to not make itself known. A smart parasite lives without being detected because if it is detected, of course, something is going to be done to eradicate it. If you think parasites are stupid, think again. They are highly intelligent organisms. Not intelligent in the same way humans are, but they are intelligent in their ability to survive and reproduce, which is of course the purpose of any organism on this planet. It sounds pretty simple, doesn't it? And in some ways it is, but it can make life for humans very complicated.
So how can a parasite exist in the body without making its presence known? If you know how to read the body and how to interpret its signals, then the presence of a parasite can be determined quite easily. However, if you accept that it is normal to have low energy levels, health challenges, skin rashes, pains, frequent colds, flu, constipation and more, then you may never question whether you have parasites.
Parasites, Hard to Detect and Hard to Get Rid Of
If you were tested by a doctor for parasites, chances are the results would come back negative. Does this mean you do not have parasites? Unfortunately medical testing procedures only catch about 20% of the actual cases of parasites. Out of over a l000 species of parasites that can live in the body, tests are available for approximately only 40 to 50 types. This means doctors are only testing for about 5% of the parasites and missing 80% of those. This brings the ability to clinically find parasites down to l %.
Once you've established that you do have parasites, taking drugs to get rid of them may not always work. This is because a drug will often drive a parasite from one organ of the body to another. It's like people moving to better climates to make their living conditions more pleasant, or birds flying south for the winter.
The distressing thing about parasites is that if you get rid of them, you can easily be reinfected. Married couples tend to have them together, and if one person is treated for the parasitic infection, they are often reinfected by their spouse. It is extremely important that both be treated at the same time, and in many cases, the children should be treated as well along with their parents.
A patient once said to me, "If parasites are so easy to catch, then why doesn't everyone have them?" The funny thing is almost everybody does.
Natural Nontoxic Treatment for Parasite infection
Dr. Salar’s Gastritis & Anti-Parasite Formula has been extremely successful in treating parasitic infections. Many patients have been able to improve their health and well being. They may be spared from conventional blood and feces tests which in most cases are not sufficient enough to prove the presence of parasites in the body.
This detoxification is not limited to the digestive system but also dissolves and removes the parasites from lungs, liver, gall bladder, kidney, urinary tracts and in general every organ in the body. Other advantages of this detoxification treatment are overall well-being, improved physical appearance, increased mental awareness, weight loss, and lessened food allergies. The treatment may also balance H. pylori (microorganism) activity in the digestive tract.
In addition to the Gastritis & Anti Parasite Formula, the full personalized treatment package includes herbal supplements, Enzymes, and Gallbladder & Liver cleansing salt. Additional symptomatic treatment may be apply as needed, during or after the course of the treatment.
