New research shows that parasites not
only control the behavior of their hosts, they can change entire
ecosystems to suit their needs.

"Hookworms sink their teeth into
the intestinal walls of more than a billion people every
day to drink their fill of blood."
Clark's book The Cure for
All Cancers sold millions of copies. She, like
many others before her, was convinced that parasites are
a critical factor in the development as well as treatment
When living in India, I read
something in Tibetan medicine about miniature copper colored
forms of life that normal eyes cannot see that are pathologically
linked to cancer. Writing almost at the same time in Europe
instead of the Himalayas, Hildegard of Bingen, described her
violet salve and said that the "vermes" will lick
the salve and die. The word "vermes" has been translated "viruses," but
a viral link to cancer remains a subject of debate, and one
professional translator I know feels that "vermes" could
also be translated "lice," not perhaps what we think
of when we say parasite, but nevertheless something small and
aggravating. The Tibetans and Hildegard possessed a remarkable
clairvoyance and were able to witness internal operations of
the body that scientists have yet to discover.
years ago, I was loaned a darkfield microscope by someone who
drew the blood and allowed me to watch what was happening to
the blood for weeks on end. I became so fascinated by parasitology
that I read over 3000 pages in medical textbooks. The gist
of what I learned is that parasite infections are rampant,
affecting about 3.5 billion people on the planet.
There are countless different
types of parasites and the dangers and symptoms are different
from one parasite to another. Some of these live for 30 years,
and as I explained to one person, "a parasite is something
that has first dibs on your dinner." The pictures in the
parasitology books are as shocking as watching the Godfather,
but one cannot close one's eyes in the hopes that the truth
will somehow disappear.
What the textbooks do not discuss
is any direct linkage between cancer and parasite infection.
This idea is unique to certain schools of thought. What I might
propose is avoiding overgeneralizations and attempting instead
to look at what a parasite infection might do. To make the
context of this suggestion clear, I might say that while mercury
poisoning may undermine health and make it harder to defend
against certain pathogenic organisms, it may or may not "cause" cancer.
Likewise, parasites live in very curious relationships to their
hosts that may or may not exacerbate the risk of cancer.
Hulda Clark put most of her emphasis
on one particular type of parasite, a fluke. It is nasty, but
merely one of 3000 possibilities. Some parasites can enter
the body through extremely casual contact, as minor as handling
a pencil touched by an infected person. Some parasites are
ingested and depend on the right set of circumstances to survive.
Parasites adapt almost miraculously
to their hosts and are therefore apt to thrive on the nutrition
that is best for the host. I have spent considerable time with
herbalists, veterinarians, and doctors discussing the various
behaviors of parasites. I think it's worth discussing what
would make for a realistic protocol.
First, one needs to eliminate
the parasites. Pharmaceutical medicine uses such dangerous
drugs for this that textbooks often have statements to the
effect that unless the parasite infection is life-threatening,
the cure may be worse than the disease. This is not true of
herbal treatments, but some of the treatments are more radical
My personal preference is to
take something anti-parasitic at the time of the full moon.
Most of the parasites that respond to the treatment will die
in the first few hours. Some may decay within the body and
some may be flushed out. If they die in the body, they will
be decomposed by bacterial action. This means that there will
be symptoms of infection while the decay is occurring. Eventually,
the white blood cells eat the bacteria and dissolve the fibrin
that the bacteria were unable to digest. I have observed this
in the microscope when working in Germany and observing the
mechanism of action of various parasite protocols.
Not all parasites may die during
the first assault. Moreover, because parasites lay eggs, tens
of thousands of them, there is almost always a need to repeat
the cycle of treatment. Moreover, some parasites may have perforated
organs so there is a need to regenerate damaged tissues and
heal from the infection, which could have been present for
Parasites also tear up membrane
linings in the intestines, they suck blood, they deposit excrement
in the body that puts off an ammonia gas, and so on and so
forth. I believe it is important to use rejuvenative tonic
herbs once completing the parasite protocol. I usually suggest
that people think of devoting a year and a half to liver regeneration;
but many people also need heart, lung, kidney, colon, or brain
taken in Germany of parasite consuming erythrocytes.
It is extremely difficult to
find proper supervision for this kind of program. Medical doctors
tend on the whole to ignore the possibility that parasites
are the cause of the complaints for which people consult them.
Laboratories seldom run proper tests on the specimens submitted
to them for examination. Patients end up taking matters into
their own hands and are therefore also put in situations in
which they have to interpret for themselves what their own
needs are. I know, I lived in Asia for many years and was medically
evacuated once and seriously ill on other occasions as well.
My own sense is, if in doubt,
start one of the regimes to see if it seems to shift anything
in a positive direction. If it does, work on the premise that
what you are doing is helpful . . . and keep going. If you
can find someone to supervise this work, great, but I think
you are going to be frustrated if you look in the normal places.
Try a doctor from a Third World country to see if he or she
is more sympathetic to your questions and need for answers.
