Okay, correction. It is not manufactured here any longer. If a doctor orders it, the pharmacist is able to compound it, themselves.
As for a worm treatment, it is an anti-parasitic.
, to be specific. Parasites come in many forms. One of them is worms. There are many
others: the bot fly, for example. A parasite, by definition has a few life stages. One of those stages is its larvae, or the parasite in egg form.
It is using the being suffering from it, as a host. The being suffering from it, can be any life form that provides a good host, from dogs, to cats,
to rats, to human beings. Doesn't matter. Parasites are anti-xenophobic and animal phobic. They don't care whether you have hair all over, and bark
or speak and have less hair. And they come in many more forms than long, rubbery strings, such as worms.
There are many new medical abstracts on the efficacy of anti parasitics in cancer treatments, as well as lung diseases and liver malfunction. Its a
rising health concern, and goes undiagnosed in many cases, in many countries, as well as the U.S. Perhaps particularly the U.S., as anti-parasitics
in the U.S. for people are rarely used, as testing for it is rarely done, here, while in many South American countries they eat ivermectin daily like
aspirin, because they're well aware of the dangers and proliferation of many parasites and all the health problems they cause. Of course, these are
full on tropical countries, so the problem is well known and huge there, due to climate and a growing season that is year round and less use of
pesticides, which is good in many ways, but has issues in other ways. Now, because of changing climates, sub tropical areas in the U.S. are
experiencing more tropical like characteristics, and have the problems attendant to this, though it may take a while for industries, such as medical
arts, to catch up.
Regardless of Phage's dismissive response, it's worth a try. If it's about dying, or trying something out of the box, this certainly won't hurt, if
it doesn't help. And it just might help. Especially because of the location of the tumor, it may be a viable possibility.
eta: I have read and heard the same as Thurisaz: there is a specific enzyme that has proven quite effective against cancer. Of course, it does
depend on the type of cancer: squamous cell vs. others….for instance.
Hope he gets better, no matter our discourse hereabouts. I will be thinking good thoughts for you and him.
