Hulda Clark's book The Cure
for All Cancers sold millions of copies. She was convinced
that parasites are a critical factor in the development as well
as treatment of cancer. Despite her role in drawing worldwide
attention to this enormous health challenge, specialists in tropical
medicine as well as several Russian doctors—not to mention
veterinarians—were well aware of problem before Clark's
publications became best sellers.
Decades ago, 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 rather than the Himalayas,
Hildegard of Bingen, in describing her violet salve, 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.
Some time back, 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 that I read over 3000 pages on parasitology
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
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 ones eyes in the hopes that the truth will somehow disappear.
||The picture on the left was
taken in Germany. The patient had breast cancer and the parasite
is, as you see, enormously long. This is a photograph
was taken at low magnification. The three puddles are
immersion oil (and to be ignored). The rest is a single
long, red parasite that was suctioning erythrocytes, almost
like a vacuum cleaner.
What the textbooks do not discuss
is any direct linkage between cancer and parasite infection. This
idea is unique to certain schools of thought, but I found some
support for the theory on the official CDC
What I might propose is avoiding
overgeneralizations and attempting instead to look at what a parasitic
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. Sometimes the infection occurs through
ingestion and the right set of circumstances to enable survival.
Insect bites are another means of transmission, and one program
on Discover Health estimated that two-thirds of all people who
have ever lived on the Planet have died of malaria. We all
know that malaria is once more an epidemic, probably in reverse
relationship to pesticides such as DDT. With global warming,
the temperate zones now also have more parasites and more diseases
related to parasite infection. In short, writing off the
possibility of infection is probably unwise.
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.
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 aggressive than others.
My personal preference is to take
something anti-parasitic starting ten to three days before the
full moon. The protocol should be continued for two to three
weeks. Then, I feel it makes sense to give the body a chance to
recover a bit. I have never really been in a situation in which
I could observe intestinal parasites, but with all the herbal formulas
I used experimentally in Germany, most of the blood parasites died
in the first 24 hours after ingesting the herbs. With this
method of destruction, the parasites die and are eaten by bacteria,
giving rise to the feeling that one has an infection. In
most cases, the patient felt a little weak but not enough to remain
in bed. It takes the bacteria about five days to eat the
fleshy parts of the parasites; when they are finished, the white
blood cells eat the bacteria and the overall condition of the blood
starts to improve. Because the parasites lay eggs, tens of
thousands of eggs per day, and because reinfection is always a
possibility, it is likely that the cycle of treatment has to be
repeated, possibly quite often.
treatment, there is still the need to heal. Parasites sometimes
perforate organs. They 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 tonics once completing the parasite protocol.
I usually suggest that people think of devoting a year and a
half to liver regeneration. Some people also need heart herbs
or kidney herbs or colon herbs or even brain herbs. 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 prior 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 for help 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.
The parasite protocols offered on
this site can be broadly defined as:
variation of the Hulda Clark recommendations. We have a number
of brands of black walnut extract, both alcohol-free and in conventional
tinctures, made, of course, from the green hulls. Cloves are
available as a powder that can be capped, added to food, or gulped
with honey. We also have an excellent essential oil of
clove buds. Wormwood is available in herb form or as an ingredient
in broader formulas.
Ayurvedic protocol using Para Cleanse from Banyan Botanicals
in conjunction with their Blood Cleanse and, if desired, Liver
Formula and Kidney Formula.
Rain Forest formulas that can be presumed to be more effective
against South American parasites.
own ParaPro set that includes three formulas to be used sequentially: Arjuna's
Arrows for 1-2 days, followed by Dragon Dreams for 5-6 days,
and then Phoenix Rising for a week. The cycle can be repeated
as often as necessary.
forms of Artemisia annua, a famous anti-malarial herb
that has been found effective in cancer treatment.

control the behavior of their hosts, they can change entire ecosystems
to suit their needs.
