Health Tips - Testing for Parasites

 
Testing for Parasites

There is no one test for parasites that is always reliable. Stool and blood tests are most commonly used to test for them. These tests often do not detect parasites even when they are present. Stool tests only show some of what may be in the bowels. Often expensive MRI’s, CT scans and surgical procedures are needed to locate them. I had one patient with an adult-size tapeworm in their brain found by a scan.

The same thing applies to testing for parasites in your animals. The main thing tested for parasites is stool. If an animal has a worm in their brain, it is not likely to show up in a stool test.

Here is an example from my practice: A patient sent in a stool sample to the most commonly used lab in L.A. who reported no parasites. One week later, I sent a stool sample from the same patient to one of the top labs for parasite testing in the U.S. They found three different types of parasites. Not long afterward, the same patient did cleanses that dislodged long threads of worms. Neither lab had located this type of parasite!

Our planet is full of parasites. It is a good idea to do a yearly program to get rid of them, in case they are present. This particularly applies if you live in close contact with animals.

As part of my in-office treatment, I routinely test for parasites and the natural, non-toxic remedies that will destroy them. I like to think that all of your energy will be saved for you!

Best of health,
