Upon further examination, the nematodes he found also contained Borrelia burgdorferi inside their gut.
This discovery helped make sense of what I had found in my Multiple Sclerosis study. If the MS patients had Nematodes and Borrelia in the central nervous system, then the proper treatment wasn’t just antibiotics but would have to be high dose antiparasitic drugs followed by antibiotics, and this combination would have to continue until all parasites in all their growth stages including eggs, had been cleared from the brain.
Why had so many missed this discovery?
In today’s fast-paced medicine, anytime MS is considered the CSF specimens are placed directly in an automated analyzer that looks for MS markers, but not for parasites. On a slide without stain, the CSF looks normal. Then if the lab looks at the slide at 40x magnification or higher, they will miss the worms. It’s like looking at an elephant’s leg an inch away and trying to figure out what the whole animal looks like.
What this means to MS patients?
Clearly this suggests that despite any other treatment, the MS patient should first be placed on an antiparasite medicine for nematodes, followed by antibiotics for Borrelia. Treatment would have to be aggressive to get past the Blood-Brain-Barrier, and prolonged to eradicate the Borrelia.
