E-histolyticaIf you suffer from a resistant parasitic, or microbial infection, then I’m going to give you an incredibly powerful natural remedy you can use to heal your body and restore a healthy gut-critter population.

First, I’m going to tell you how I came to research parasites and what constitutes ‘infection’ and my thoughts about the bio-terrain vs the pathogen. Then I’m going to take you step-by-step through an oral and transdermal (topical) remedy that hopefully will resolve any acute or chronic infection.

My Journey into Parasitic Infection & Testing

I recently had a 3-day stool and saliva test done through Jim Ehmke’s clinic. You may recall Jim as he is the clinical nutritionist. I interviewed for a teleseminar on raw milk diets and a podcast on natural cancer treatments.

The results of my stool sample came back perfectly clear (no ova or parasites), with an abundance of good bacteria. However, the saliva sample indicated a “positive” or “detected” result for Entamoeba histolytica, roundworm and tapeworm. Yikes!

Upon closer examination, the test specified that IgA antibodies to these parasites had been found. I had a lengthy phone conversation with Jim Ehmke about these results. And he feels they are indeed indicative of infection with these parasites.

He told me that when he worked with a parasitologist, they would see results like this, where the parasites were detected only in the saliva antibodies. But then they would do an extremely aggressive purge on the patient. And after that treatment the parasites would exit via the stool.

I then consulted with three different integrative medical physicians to get their opinion. They all felt that the test was not a reliable indicator of the presence of these parasites. They stated that IgA antibodies merely indicate exposure to the parasites. For the parasites to actually be present in the body, the saliva would reveal IgM antibodies – which indicate infection.

Parasitic Infection Or Symbiosis?

So am I infected with parasites… or not?

Personally, I don’t feel there’s enough evidence either way to make an unequivocal declaration. And here’s another thing I feel that may be a bit unusual.

I don’t actually mind sharing my body and resources with other microorganisms.

If mosquito bites didn’t itch, I wouldn’t mind sharing my blood either.

Western mentality has a fixation on sanitation and “cleanliness”. But look at how humans have lived for millennia – side by side with all kinds of animals and organisms.

Yes, you may say, but look at the diseases they get! Sure, okay, but what about the diseases we get?

I’m not saying I would be happy with a widespread infestation of parasites, because obviously that would compromise my health and lead to suffering. But what’s wrong with a few, unobtrusive, otherwise undetectable parasites that do not interfere with my energy, vitality, strength and functioning?

Are IgA Antibodies an Indicator of Parasitic Infection?

According to the Amebiasis Fact Sheet from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) only 10 –20% of those infected with Entamoeba histolytica ever become sick from it.

And in many cases, E. histolytica is indistinguishable from E. dispar – which never makes people sick and thus does not need to be treated.

It seems to me we are back to the susceptibility component of Germ Theory.

It is not the germs themselves, which cause disease, it is the susceptibility of the host bioterrain that determines whether microbes remain harmless or become an “infection”.

illustration of parasite infection

For example, an infection of Staph A strikes dread into the hearts of many. But did you know that Staphylococcus aureus is a normal resident on the skin (and mucous membranes) of about 40% of the population?

What causes it to turn infectious in some but mostly benign in others?

Also, don’t forget, the latest therapy for causing Crohn’s symptoms to subside is to have the patient swallow regular infestations of Helminth worms (from pigs).

These worms do not stay indefinitely in the gut. However, and eventually pass out through the stool, hence the patient has to periodically swallow a new batch of eggs.

An effective therapy for asthma and allergies in children consists of them playing with and inhaling African dirt.

Why? Because dirt from Africa is not “clean” and contains all kinds of microscopic organisms and particles that effectively engage and thus balance the child’s immune system.

Humans and Microorganisms: Co-Existence

The theory that doctors are following now is that humans are designed to co-exist with various microorganisms.

Our immune system has evolved to function in the presence of all kinds of “nasties”. And in our newly sterile western world, the immune system is now malfunctioning in this unnatural environment.

A great book that explores this in depth is An Epidemic of Absence: A New Way of Understanding Allergies and Autoimmune Diseases by Moises Velasquez-Manoff.

Personally, this has always resonated with me. I have let all three of my children be less sanitary than “normal”, right from birth.

For example, I don’t make them wash their hands before dinner, if food drops on the floor I let them brush it off and eat it (if they want).

Simultaneously, I have provided the elements necessary for building a strong immune system – through diet, environment, emotional health, supplements, and avoiding vaccines.

What About My Saliva Test Results?

But getting back to my saliva test results: am I now worried?

To be honest, I haven’t decided yet. If the actual parasites or their eggs were detected in my stool, then yes, I would definitely pursue treatment because this would indicate to me an unhealthy level of infection.

Likewise, if my saliva showed IgM antibodies to parasites, that would be a more solid indicator for me. But IgA antibodies in my saliva only, that merely indicate exposure?

Let me tell you, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to be exposed to these parasites. I was born in Kenya and lived there for five years. When I was ten I watched our cat vomit up a mouse with a tapeworm wrapped around it (and yes, I stroked and napped with this cat).

I have rescued any number of mangy stray dogs, cats and abused horses. I have traveled to many third-world countries and eaten from roadside stalls. Exposure? No doubt.

And possibly past infection that has since been cleared. But current, ongoing, pathogenic infection? I don’t know, I just don’t see the evidence of it.

Exploring Anti-Parasitic Protocols

Nevertheless, my test results caused me to delve deeply into the world of anti-parasitic protocols. Chlorine dioxide – which is sodium chlorite that has been ‘activated’ with citric acid (also known as MMS – Miracle Mineral Supplement) is showing great promise in this field.

But it is also difficult to tolerate with many people discontinuing treatment due to the unpleasant side effects – nausea being particularly bothersome.

There is also plenty of information available on MMS protocols and many people experimenting with it, so I decided to leave it alone for now.

One thing I will say is that I believe Dr. Tom Hesselink is on the right track. He maintains the side effects from the MMS protocols are not the herxheimer reaction, but rather poisoning, from using too high a dosage.

What is Dr. Hesselink’s MMS Protocol?

Personally, if your intution is guiding you towards MMS, then I would follow Dr. Hesselink’s protocols and use a 5% solution of sodium chlorite, rather than a 28% solution (as recommended by the MMS inventor, Jim Humble).

For my anti-parasitic protocols, I did not feel drawn to MMS, and decided to experiment with potent substances I’m already familiar with and have a degree of fluency in their usage.

Alternative Medicine - Green Eucalyptus Leaves and Pills on Green Background. Detox and anti Parasite Cleanse Concept

I looked at combining certain natural substances to create a synergy of potentiated (exponentially increased) effect, in an attempt to create a protocol that was suitably powerful, yet with the highest chance of tolerance:

  • wild oregano oil
  • potassium iodide
  • DMSO
  • Colloidal or atom-sized silver

This protocol is particularly powerful due to the combined anti-pathogen effect of each of its components. In addition to that, the DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide; derived from tree bark) carries the substances quickly and deeply into the tissues, bloodstream and cells.

Colloidal silver and potassium iodide (SSKI) is also quickly absorbed into the cells and bloodstream – carried in almost instantly by the DMSO. When taken on an empty stomach, these four anti-pathogen substances are indeed powerful and hopefully effective.

Jini’s Personal Experience with the Protocol

I have tested this protocol myself and personally, I find it to be fairly easily tolerated – dizziness and periods of tiredness were my principle reactions.

Depending on what’s happening, you may feel initially tired and experience some Herxheimer (headaches, fatigue, mild nausea, diarrhea) reaction symptoms. You can reduce these by using ColonEaze to gather/bind up the dead organisms and toxins and carry them out. As time goes on, and your body clears the unwanted critters, you will feel increasing amounts of energy.

If you tend to constipation, then it is really important to give your body plenty of magnesium citrate or flushing enemas to keep your bowel moving and regularly eliminate the dead microorganisms and their toxins. Also use ColonEaze to gather/bind up the dead organisms and toxins and carry them out – this is very supportive to the body and should reduce the severity of the Herxheimer (die-off) reaction.

As you will see, I have provided two “strengths” of this protocol; the first is the one I have tested on myself and is for regular pathogens (yeast, fungus, bacteria, viruses, mycobacteria), or suspected parasites.

The second one is for confirmed parasites. Please keep in mind that both of these are experimental – so far only a few of us have done the first protocol and no one has yet done the second (I’ve had a few doses of the second, but I haven’t done it for two weeks).

So proceed with caution and post any comments, etc. in the COMMENTS section below and I’ll try to provide feedback where I can.

Please keep in mind that I cannot give personal health advice (due to liability issues) but I can discuss this protocol, ingredients, my experience, etc. in the public comments section.

Induce Alkalinity To Increase Potency

I also heard of a trick to further increase the potency of each protocol by inducing alkalinity just prior to ingestion, to make the microbes more susceptible (many bacteria and viruses cannot live or thrive in an alkaline environment).

I learned this trick from Maraline Krey – who I have done both a teleseminar and podcast on pH body balance. This is done by drinking some atom-sized minerals, which have an alkaline pH – remember atom-sized or angstrom minerals do not require digestion and are immediately absorbed into the bloodstream, even through the lining of the mouth.

This will also benefit those of you concerned with calcium levels or osteoporosis, since the mineral blend is called Bone Matrix and contains calcium, magnesium, boron, manganese, silica, zinc, copper, selenium and potassium.

After ingesting 1 tablespoon of Bone Support, you then wait five minutes and then ingest the anti-pathogen substances in the protocol. I use Bone Matrix and Trace Matrix as my daily multi-mineral supplement anyway. So I followed Maraline’s advice and ingested a tablespoon five minutes prior to administering this protocol.

One more thing you can do to support this protocol is to also take adequate amounts of vitamin D3 (3,000-5,000 IU per day) and cod liver oil (1 tsp or 4-6 capsules per day) – with food.

Vitamin D3 is one of those substances that increases overall body resistance to pathogens and cod liver oil aids the action of DMSO.

WARNING: Speaking of which, if you have not used DMSO before, then you must learn and follow these safety guidelines. DMSO is an incredibly powerful substance and will transport almost anything into your tissues and bloodstream.

Products needed for this protocol:

  • 1 bottle wild oregano oil
  • 1 bottle 99% DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide)
  • 1 bottle of SSKI (super saturated potassium iodide)
  • 1-2 bottles of atom-sized or colloidal silver (minimum 22 ppm – the higher the better)
  • Natren probiotics: If you are having 3 bowel movements or less per day, then you can take the Healthy Trinity capsules. If you are having more than 3 bowel movements per day, then you must use the powders: Megadophilus, Bifido Factor and Digesta-Lac
  • Optional but Recommended: 1 bottle of Bone Matrix atom-sized (nanoparticle) mineral blend. Follow instructions on the bottle to achieve an alkaline pH. Vitamin D3 (5,000 IU per day) and Cod liver oil (6 capsules per day)

Now that you have all your ingredients ready. Here is how to administer the protocol:


Jini’s Quad Synergy Pathogen/Parasite Protocol

This protocol is administered orally for bacterial, viral or suspected parasitic infections and then both orally and transdermally for severe or confirmed parasitic infections.

Formula #1 – For bacteria, viruses, yeast and mild or suspected parasites:

  • 5 – 10 drops of wild oregano oil (shake bottle well), 3 – 5 times per day on an empty stomach
  • 6 – 8 ounces of water containing 1 tablespoon of nanoparticle or colloidal silver. 3 drops potassium iodide and 1/8 teaspoon 99% DMSO, 3 – 5 times per day on an empty stomach

Formula #2 – For confirmed or strong parasitic infection:

  • 10 – 15 drops of wild oregano oil (shake bottle well), 3 – 5 times per day on an empty stomach
  • 6 – 8 ounces of water containing 1 tablespoon of atom-sized or colloidal silver. 3 drops potassium iodide/SSKI and 1/3 teaspoon (1.60 ml) 99% DMSO, 3 – 5 times per day on an empty stomach.
    (Note: If the taste of the DMSO is too strong for your tolerance. Replace 1-2 ounces of water with clear organic apple juice to help mask the taste.)

How to Consume Wild Oregano Oil?

Take your dose of Bone Matrix to induce alkalinity.

Then take a sip of the DMSO mixture, tip your head back, so it goes to the back of your throat, hold it there and drop the wild oregano oil into your throat. Immediately swallow and then wash all remaining traces of the oil down your throat using rest of the DMSO mixture. Drink until the glass is empty. For a demonstration of how to do this, see my video on How To Take Wild Oregano Oil.

Feel free to drink some filtered water afterwards if you need it to get rid of the taste.

Take this 3 – 5 times per day on an empty stomach. It’s a good idea to start with lower amounts or lowered frequency and then build up over time. For example, start with half the dosage of the wild oregano oil, and the DMSO solution. Then gradually build up. Or take once or twice per day to start, establish tolerance and then increase to full frequency and dosage.

This (along with ColonEaze) will help you to avoid an overwhelming or intense die-off (Herxheimer) reaction.

Follow this oral protocol for a maximum of 2 weeks. If you know what you’re infected with, then follow the schedule for your parasite’s/infection’s dormant-active lifecycle. If you’re unsure, then take a break for 2 – 4 weeks and see how your body feels. If symptoms come back at any time, go back on the protocol.

Natren Probiotics Dose

Daily: Last thing before bed, and 2 hours after your last dosage (on an empty stomach), take a high dose of the Natren probiotics. Either 1 tsp each of Megadophilus, Bifido-Factor and Digesta-Lac dissolved in 8 ounces filtered room-temperature water OR 1 Health Trinity capsule.

Transdermal Application

The transdermal portion of this protocol is optional, but may be useful for a confirmed parasitic infection.

Combine these ingredients in a 3 oz dark glass bottle and shake well to make a DMSO 40% solution. Mix ingredients together in a glass, ceramic or stainless steel measuring cup with pour spout and then pour into a dark/amber glass bottle(s). This will give you enough solution for about 3-4 weeks of treatment:

  • 2 tablespoons of 99% DMSO
  • 2 tablespoons of pure inner leaf aloe vera juice, like George’s Aloe, no preservatives or flavors
  • 1/2 teaspoon potassium iodide (SSKI)
  • 1/2 teaspoon wild oregano oil
  • 1 teaspoon colloidal silver

Note: If you are using inner leaf aloe powder, just mix as directed in water, and use 2 tablespoons of your mixture.

Shake well to mix and apply this transdermal solution once per day, to your abdomen (wherever you suspect your infection is active) using your fingers or a natural hair paintbrush.

*Do not use anything synthetic with DMSO as it will pick up and transport everything it contacts into your skin/bloodstream. Make sure your hands and abdomen have been washed with plain soap and water and do not have any creams or fragrance on them. Apply one layer of solution and allow the mixture to dry.

Next, apply a hot castor oil pack to the same area of your abdomen.

DMSO tolerance varies widely (with redheads being the most sensitive), so this solution is likely to be tolerated by most, but feel free to adjust up or down as you desire. It is normal for it to itch while drying and the potassium iodide can cause a sting. The castor oil will help soothe these effects as well. But if it causes a rash, decrease the concentration of DMSO, or apply comfrey salve to the rash.

Some people do notice a garlic-type odor (that can emanate from your skin or mouth) when using DMSO. This is normal and stops as soon as you stop using it.

*All products are available at the LTYG Shoppe if you can’t find them locally.


Steps to be taken AFTER the Protocol

When you are finished the protocol, you should take high dose Natren probiotics 2-3 times a day for three to six months: either 1 tsp each of Megadophilus, Bifido-Factor and Digesta-Lac dissolved in 8 ounces filtered room-temperature water, taken 3x/day on an empty stomach OR 1 Health Trinity capsule, 2x/day. Thereafter, either take probiotics daily and eat foods rich in probiotics (homemade yoghurt, fermented vegetables, etc.).

You may need to cycle on and off this program for up to two years depending upon what you are infected with. Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP) and various parasites have dormant and active lifecycles.

So you need to do the protocol again each time they become active. Until you have completely cleared the pathogen and it’s eggs, spores, etc.

Find out the dormant/active lifecycle for whichever parasites you’re infected with and schedule treatment for the active times – for maximum efficacy.

For example, when treating roundworm and tapeworm, you may want to roughly mimic the drug treatment cycle.

  • Implement oral and transdermal protocols on Day 1-14, then take a break.
  • Administer again on Day 30-35, then break.
  • Administer Day 90-95 then break.
  • Administer Day 180 – 185.
  • Finished.

Find More Information Here

If you want more information on each of the substances involved in this treatment. Type “DMSO” or “colloidal silver” or”potassium iodide” into the SEARCH box on my blog. This blog also contains lots of info on my experiments. And it is free, just use the Search box to search by topic.

Then go to the Books and eBooks section. And download my What You Need To Know About Wild Oregano Oil eBook.

Lastly, do an internet search on each ingredient, like “nanoparticle or angstrom silver”. It will pull up some fascinating research for you like this:

“In the first-ever study of metal nanoparticles’ interaction with HIV-1, silver nanoparticles of sizes 1-10nm attached to HIV-1 and prevented the virus from bonding to host cells. The study, published in the Journal of Nanotechnology, was a joint project between the University of Texas, Austin and Mexico Univeristy, Nuevo Leon.”

Word of Caution

DO NOT substitute products or brands other than the ones I have listed here (click those Shoppe links to see what I recommend). You can purchase them anywhere you want, just don’t change the brand.

For example, you cannot substitute regular iodine or Lugol’s for the potassium iodide (SSKI). Since Lugol’s has molecular iodine in addition to potassium iodide and will cause irritation when used with DMSO.

Here’s another example: you cannot combine chlorine dioxide (MMS) with wild oregano oil. Because the phenols in wild oregano neutralize or deactivate the MMS, rendering it worthless.

I have studied and compiled hundreds of pages of research to put together this protocol. And since we are dealing with powerful substances, they have volatilities and interactions with other specific substances that can either cause unpleasant effects, or neutralize their action.

This is why you have to use exactly the products specified here to obtain the desired effect and full potency of the protocol. As with any substance, if you react badly, develop a rash or other allergic reaction, then discontinue use. This is yet another reason to start slowly and gradually build up to test for tolerance.

Listen to Your Body

Again, please keep in mind that these protocols are experimental. So be sure to listen to your own body at all times. And post your results here so we can compile our knowledge together.

Don’t forget, this is how Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol came into existence. I tested it on myself first. Then about 30 of my consultation clients tested it and we compiled our feedback, altered the protocol a bit, thousands more tested it, and now we have an excellent protocol that has helped tens of thousands of people.

Here’s some feedback from a Medical doctor who tried this Quad-Synergy Pathogen-Parasite Protocol with his daughter after she picked up an infection from a local river:

“I wanted to share with you a great experience we had with my daughter Olivia, we spent a weekend on a river houseboat, she only drank bottled water and washed her teeth with good water. Two days later after we came back she developed a “typical gut infection” that I initially thought was an UC flare. But no it was not, she had pain, diarrhea and weakness, a little fever, some body aches. I think as they wash the glasses and dishes with water from the river, even if it is chlorinated, as it is, I am sure it has some weird bacteria that “normal” guts can tolerate, but Olivia’s hypersensitive gut can´t.

I started right away with pure WOO – as she was really fine I had stopped giving it to her a few weeks before. Then I remembered your Quad protocol and as now I have all the components here with us, I decided to give it to her. Silver + SSKI + DMSO for 10 days.

She recovered right away, MARVELOUS!!! the only thing (and she hated me for this) is that she smelled, she had a “heart of palms” smell on her skin and I could tell it when I woke her up every morning, this was noted by her cruel classmates when she returned to classes. It was not a bad smell but, a little rancid and certainly a very unusual odor. [This is a common side-effect of DMSO usage]

But in less than three days her symptoms improved, my assumption is that this “solvent” increases the WOO penetration, could that be the case? [YES]

Another thing is that for the first time I could realize that it is possible to discriminate an IBD bout from an ACUTE gut INFECTION, pure infection, before it becomes ulcerated, bleeding, etc. and that if we act fast and with energy this great protocol can control the situation, and finally it is possible to rapidly change the course of the episode (when the case is with a gut that is already healed, as Olivia´s is).” – Dr. Silvio Najt
