Over the past few months I have been sharing ground-breaking studies and lectures on the impact parasitic infections have on MS patients. One of these studies was a 2016 presentation by Dr. Alan MacDonald, where he shared a shocking discovery – nematodes were found in the brains and spinal fluid of 100% of deceased MS patients tested.
The research is showing that parasitic infections are closely related to multiple sclerosis, but the problem is that doctors don’t have reliable tests for these parasites, and many are not experienced in treating parasites in North America. Parasites are all around us, and for those of us with a weakened immune system they can have devastating effects, often leading to chronic disease.
In order to treat them successfully we have to use several strategies together. This includes not actively feeding them, supporting the body, and layering therapies or treatments.
An interesting 2015 study looked at mice infected with parasitic worms, which caused cells in their bodies to release histamines – which starts the inflammatory process. You can reference the study here: Histamine 1 Receptor Blockade Enhances Eosinophil-Mediated Clearance of Adult Filarial Worms
The test group that was given antihistamines saw immune cells that fight parasites increased by 400%. This means that antihistamines could be a helpful tool in treating parasites.
This is significant because parasites are really difficult to treat, and there is no single catch-all treatment. This research shows that antihistamines may help people who suffer with multiple sclerosis, by sedating these worms, slowing down their activity, decreasing inflammation, improving the ability of the immune system to clear the parasites and consequently helping to reduce symptoms or MS flare-ups.
