Parasite Eggs, "Shedding" and Samples

There seems to be some assumptions or misconceptions made about whether or not something can be found in submitted samples. Perhaps this was started by the very labs who aren't necessarily looking for parasites because some procedures and observations can be laborious.

It is no great secret that one ascaris roundworm can lay 250,000 eggs per day; one tapeworm lays 500,000 eggs per day; and one hookworm (depending on the species) lays 7,000-28,000 per day. These 3 parasites are the most infectious among humans. Pinworms and Toxoplasma gondii "the cat parasite" are others. There are many parasites, obviously, numbered into the thousands and all of them lay eggs into the thousands, per day. Think about that for a moment! A lot of eggs are being laid inside of a person.

People don’t harbor 1 roundworm unless it is a specific species; it would be highly unusual to have “just one parasite”. The medical establishment considers a “small infection” of roundworms is between 50-200 worms. Parasites live in colonies along the intestinal tract. Most worms live in the upper intestines which means they are hiding in 20 feet of intestinal tract. The other 6 feet is the colon and few reside there which is WHY they are rarely found in colonoscopies, if ever; parasites are also rarely found when doing endoscopies while viewing the stomach. The colonoscope and endoscope are specific tools and aren’t designed for viewing the entire intestinal tract. This is the reason why stool samples are important. There are also many parasites whose lifecycle involves the lungs which is why sputum tests are performed.

Stool sample with ova formations and nematode structuresSupposedly, according to medical literature, male worms are never found so this tells us that ALL worms are female. Given this information, let’s assume that all female worms are mature enough to lay eggs, using the “small infection” rate above – worms lay eggs all day long – they don’t lay eggs one day and not the other. Simple mathematics tells us that there are between 12,500,000 - 50,000,000 eggs laid per day, if we were to use the infection count! Considering the high rate of egg laying there is a very strong possibility that some of those eggs might mature, which means an increase of hatchlings – some live and some die. Let’s take this a step further and be extremely conservative with using the figure of 10 roundworms presently laying eggs; that means 2,500,000 eggs per day!

Most people don’t move their bowels well enough. Constipation could be a result of parasite infection. Good movement is between 12-18 hours after a meal. Even if good movement is performed “something” is bound to be found either immediately and/or over a period of time under observation; hence, the reason for the long waiting period with us to be SURE nothing is missed. Observation is laborious work if done properly. Therefore, how is it possible for “something” to be missed unless the testing methods are faulty?

There are a lot of questions that need to be addressed with conventional methods. What is going on with other labs if they are unable to find eggs or parasites in one sample, let alone 2-3 samples, or the most ridiculous sampling of 12 takes to finally find something!? What about when people purposely add a worm or a structure to a sample and the results are returned negative? This is happening with the "best" labs in the world.

The above is simple logic and simple mathematics.

Lab Analyst's Comments & Observations on Micrograph

stool_thumbnail2It wouldn't surprise me how these organisms haven't shown up in 'traditional' tests; for one thing, a great number of them were deeply 'embedded' in fecal matter when I found them, which made them virtually invisible to the naked untrained eye.  Furthermore, it's unlikely they ever would have surfaced 'up' to a slide by the use of common 'flotation techniques'.  Some other organisms were hard to reveal and did a good job at 'shying away' from sight. In order to reveal many of them, I had to use several wave manipulation techniques of my own devise which allowed me to "see" inside fecal matter itself without disturbing it in any way.  It was a time consuming process, but it was well worth it, in my opinion.
