I have had a persistant cough, lung infection, asthma for 5 years going on 15yrs. I have a whole host of other problems with IBS,liver, joints etc. I started parasite cleansing with herbs one year ago. I improved in leaps and bounds in all areas except my lungs. In May if this yr I was tested at the Hopstial of Tropical diseases in London and diagnosed with stronglyoides. These miniscule parasites are home to the lavae before they return to the gut. I have now received three lots of Ivermectin to kill them.
After the third lot of treatment and after a couple of courses of Amoxcillin, my lungs were clear of infection, cough and tightness associated with ASTHMA for the first time in years. Then I got a gradual return of symptoms. my personal belief is the three courses of Ivermectin killed a large percentage of the strongyloides but there were still some left and they started to multiply again.
One of the problems is that pathogens such as Strep, Staph, and coxsackie ride on the parasites, and when the parasites are killed the Strep, staph etc set up local infections. hence to start with the worsening of my lung infection when I killed parasites with herbs and again with the first dose of ivermectin. As more and more of the strongys were killed i eventually got improvements when taking the ivermectin with Amocillin.
what you have to be aware of is the steroid inhalers they give you to treat asthma, actually cause Strongys and some other parasites to multiply, so it can actually worsen the condition.
I still have a way to go for a permant cure, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel now!
