Trichinosis

trichinella1Trichinosis is a parasitic disease caused by development of nematode - Trichinella spiralis. This parasite occurs in humans and animals (pig, bears, rats, foxes, etc.). Consumption of contaminated meat, especially pork and game meat may lead to infection with this nematode. Persons infected with Trichinella spiralis, feel tired all the time, even after a good night's sleep they have hard time to start the day, they become irritable, anxious, have panic attacks, bouts of depression and often complain about long-term insomnia. Among main burdens caused by this parasite in the human body are pain and/or muscle spasms of the legs (especially calves), shoulders, neck and sometimes hands and feet muscles.

Presence of Trichinella spiralis is also indicated by a specific discomfort of breaking and twisting of the entire ium in such a case?body, which begins late in the evening and lasts up to 4 - 5 hours in the morning. The most frequently in response to a patient’s complaint about muscle pain, the doctor recommends intake of magnesium. What is the role of magnes

Since magnesium acts as a calcium channel antagonist, when normal levels of magnesium are restored, trichinella3dissolution of calcium deposits takes place and removal of its excess from the body as well. Calcification is not solely caused by magnesium deficiency, but also by the presence of Trichinella spiralis’ larvae, which are located in muscles as limestone cysts. If larvae are numerous and they burden the body over a long period of time, they cause calcification of muscles, which leads to their tension and contraction, and cannot be eliminated by means of such procedures as: massages, acupuncture, acupressure, and the like.

It is generally believed that the main source of infection with Trichinella spiralis is pork and game meat. However, we know from our experience that vegans and vegetarians are burdened with Trichinosis, and have all its symptoms as well. Why is this happening? In our opinion, the infection can occur when you prepare vegetarian dishes utilizing knives and cutting boards, which are also used for cutting meat, and therefore may be loaded with microscopic parasite cysts, but also when one does not follow the basic rules of hygiene. People who eat out often, are more susceptible to infection.

Attention! Pork and game meat is free from Trichinella spiralis’ larvae, once cooked thoroughly at very high temperature (over 80 ° C) or preserved at -40 / -50 ° C. Please note that smoking and salting of meat does not eliminate the larvae.

Stages of development

trichinella4When a human eats infected meat, the larvae of Trichinella spiralis in form of encapsulated cysts go to the stomach, where under the influence of digestive acids, their sheath is dissolved, they are released and then enter the small intestine. There, after 1-2 days, they mature into adults and reproduce. Males measure 1,4 – 1,6 mm and females 3-4 mm in length. The female gives birth to a new generation of about 1500 larvae that pass through the intestinal wall, get into the bloodstream and spread throughout the body. After entering the host’s muscle they curl up in spirals and encyst with limestone coatings. The cysts are the underlying cause of most symptoms associated with Trichinosis, and they may be present in the muscles unlimited amount of time, waiting for the next owner. Severity of infection with Trichinosis depends on the number of larvae that are within the infected body.

Trichinosis disease in humans proceeds in two stages. The first stage is characterized by fever and gastrointestinal disorders, such as: mild abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea, weakening of pulse and blood pressure, which appear in the first days after infection and disappear after 10 days or earlier. This is the time, when the larvae develop in the small intestine.

In the second stage, lasting from 2 to 3 weeks after infection, the larvae spread throughout the body burdening muscles and blood vessels, which leads to muscles’ and joint’s pain, and causes severe weakness of the entire body. Sometimes, there are cases when muscle pain is accompanied by swelling of the eyelids and/or swelling of the face. Additionally, Trichinella spiralis may cause a pain in the heart and damage the heart muscle leading to condition known as Tachycardia.

Unfortunately, most people infected with this parasitic nematode are not aware of its existence, and even if they have symptoms mentioned above, they do not associate them with it.

In our center, the presence of Trichinella spiralis is checked by means of Vega-test, and if infection is affirmed, individual frequencies are selected that disturb the metabolic processes of the parasite and lead to its removal.
The effectiveness of the therapy depends on the extent of the infection, the amount of larvae in the body, but particularly on reserves of immunological system, adaptive reserves, the pH of tissues and organs, etc. Treatment usually lasts 2-3 days, meaning from 2 to 3 sessions lasting a few hours each, and it is done by subjecting the body to electromagnetic field with specially chosen frequency. We recommend additionally intake of magnesium citrate, which will help to dissolve calcareous cysts in muscle tissue.

The presence of Trichinella spiralis in the body can be determined in vitro in the second week after inoculation, when the number of eosinophils (eosinophilic leukocytes) in the blood is increased from 20% to 40-50%, as well as the concentration of muscle enzymes (creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase). The nematode cannot be diagnosed by laboratory testing.

In some cases, Trichinosis may be diagnosed by muscle tissue biopsy; if cysts are numerous, they can be seen under a microscope.

trichinella5When Trichinella spiralis enters the body, the immune system begins to deal with it by developing antibodies, so-called immunoglobulins. There are basically five types of these specific proteins: IgG, IgM, IgE, IgA, and IgD.

IgE antibodies appear in the initial phase of Trichinosis infection. However, there are cases where, despite the infection, IgE analysis is negative. Therefore, a diagnosis on the basis of these antibodies is not reliable.

The most suitable for diagnosis are IgG proteins. They are present in the blood at the greatest quantity (compared to other types of immunoglobulins) and can be detected in the blood after 12-60 days from infection; the stronger the infection, the earlier development of antibodies is. High levels of IgG may persist from a month to a year.

Trichinosis may and often leads to complications such as: myocarditis, heart failure, pneumonia, hepatitis, and meningitis.
