the following is a blurb Strongyloides stercoralis that is actually QUITE indemic in areas as far north as NY. Needless to say, this PARTICUALR infections should by NO MEANS be treated by herbs. Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection syndrome due to the acceleration of the autoinfective cycle of the nematode is a life-threatening form of the infection occurring in immunocompromised hosts. Intestinal ileus, which is commonly encountered in this form, may reduce the bioavailability and thus the efficacy of oral anthelminthic drugs used in the treatment of the S. stercoralis hyperinfection syndrome. We report the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous administration of ivermectin in a patient infected with human T cell lymphotropic virus type I with S. stercoralis hyperinfection syndrome who was unresponsive to an oral combination of ivermectin and albendazole.
-this is cutting edge stuff. any questions let me know
-be cautious when treating with herbs, as this parasite should be ruled out first.
-Inadequate treatment may actually exacerbate and dessiminate the infection
