Parasite Q&A with Dr Amin

Emma Lane recently visited Parasitology Centre Incorporated in Arizona, USA to spend time with world-renown parasitologist, Dr Amin. She was able to review the testing process in more detail and meet with the lab’s highly trained and specialised lab technicians.

Emma also asked Dr Amin a number of questions about parasites which had been sent in from practitioners who have attended Emma’s World of Parasites, Fungus & Bacteria training course or via the PCI Europe website.

Q: Is it common to get nausea while taking Freedom Cleanse Restore and should you stop using it if you experience that symptom?

Dr Amin: Any symptom like nausea or related symptoms can occur depending on what other issues are going on, aside from the patient’s parasite issue.

So you need to examine what is happening systemically with the person that is taking the Freedom Cleanse Restore remedy to decide what else is going, but the remedy itself does not cause nausea.

Q: What foods, if any, does Dr Amin recommend avoiding whilst doing the cleanse?

Dr Amin: Instead of listing what to avoid, I’d like to say something about what is recommended. We have found in our experience that the Mediterranean diet is the best thing to follow with the remedy

Many of the herbs used in the remedy come from the Mediterranean area and there is no limit on the length of time used. This makes Freedom Cleanse, Restore very unique and many of the ingredients used are not found in other remedies that are available on the market today.

Q: I would like to know if it’s true that 90% of the world’s population has a parasite and / or fungal infection.

Dr Amin: I would not be surprised if there were some pockets in the world populations which are heavily exposed to parasite infections that could show 90% infection rates.

One result suggest that at least 32% of populations in United States and Europe, in cross-sectional studies, are infected with parasites but those are only the ones who get to be tested. There are many people that have parasites who do not get to be tested. Our estimates are closer to 50%, on average, one in two people will have a parasite, some will have a serious pathological impact, and some will have minor impact.

Q: Do you believe parasite infections are due to poor diet and lifestyle factors and are these factors the leading cause for most chronic diseases?

Dr Amin: Parasite infection is a by-product of the relationship between the parasite, the host and the environment. If a patient is susceptible, perhaps because of fatigue or chronic issues outside the parasite issue, they will be more susceptible to contract a parasite infection or it can be more readily established. If a patient is more immune competent and does not have those deleterious factors they will be much more resistant to the same parasite infection at the same dose.

Q: I’d like details on what pathological amounts of bacteria are, compared with normal levels, how these are determined and whether it is possible to find out the degree of pathology.

Dr Amin: The answer is simple as there is no such thing as pathological amounts because in some cases just very small amounts of certain bacteria can cause a serious infection and in some other cases it takes a large amount of organisms to cause similar symptoms from another infection.

The important thing is to be able to define what infections there are and that is what the sensitivity test results are based on.

Every species has its own dose that is sufficient to cause a serious infection and do not forget that in the parasite / human relationship it mostly also depends on the patient’s susceptibility. Some people will be susceptible to small doses and others are very resilient to larger doses so the factor of the host resilience and susceptibility is more important. You cannot ignore the host factors.

Q: Any details on Klebsiella bacteria and its association with inflammatory disorders?

Dr Amin: Well all bacterial infections will cause inflammatory disorders because basically when you have an acute infection it’s going to cause inflammation. The inflammation is a by-product of the white blood cells rushing to the infection site, this will cause a collection of body fluids and blood which will cause inflammation. Most chronic diseases are diseases of an inflammatory nature.

Q: I’d love to know more about treating babies who can’t swallow pills or struggle to take bitter tasting tonics.

Dr Amin: Babies should not be treated with anything, because that is well beyond our call of duty. The younger the child is, the faster the metabolic rate is, the faster to accumulate or metabolise remedies that could be too strong for them.

So as a rule the Freedom Cleanse Restore is not recommend for children less than 4 years old and if they are above 4 years old and of good girth they can take the remedy in smaller doses and also with an increased amount of time between doses. This must be taken on a case-by-case basis but generally you want to avoid giving any remedy, herbal or antibiotic, to any child under 4 years old.

Q: Do parasites travel across the placenta during pregnancy?

Dr Amin: Some parasites do and that can cause congenital problems and some parasites don’t. It varies and depends on what parasite we are talking about.

Q: I’d like to hear Dr Amin’s opinion on the emergence of these bio-frequency machines that claim to detect parasite infections.

Dr Amin: I have seen a few different bio-frequency machines and none of them impressed me, because the frequency picked up by the machines can be tagged to anything, even physical abnormalities, dysfunctions by the organ systems or toxicity issues but they are not biologically tagged to specific species even if this is claimed, so I cannot trust them.
