Misdiagnosed! Parasite Mistaken for a Brain Tumor!

Woman in Phoenix thought she had a brain tumor, but it turned out to be a worm, (parasite)! Thank goodness she had it removed, and not go through chemo and radiation. I wonder how many other people are being treated for “diseases” that are actually fungi or parasites?

WARNING:  Do NOT follow the link below if you’re squeamish!

Where do I begin?  A Phoenix woman was feeling tired, run down, dizzy, numb on one side, and generally weak.  After a few doctor visits and several tests, they diagnose her with a brain tumor.

So, the neurosurgeon went in and was trying to remove the “tumor”.  When he cut the sack that surrounded the tumor, instead of it being an actual tumor, it was…. a worm!  A parasite!  Yuck… (The link shows the video of the surgeon cutting, and the worm emerging.)

Here’s the thing:  This is one of those times when I’m not going to come after the doctors for misdiagnosing this.  How in the world could they have known?  I’m just glad they didn’t put this woman through chemo and radiation, and never actually get to the real problem.

The thing I’m concerned about is how often misdiagnosis may actually occur.  Doug has a book in his library that says sac fungi, (ascomycetes), are almost always mistaken for tumors.  They look, “behave”, grow, thrive, die, and are metabolically identical to cancer tumors, according to this book.  It was written in the early 20th-century and was a standard textbook for young medical students, but that was a long time ago.  I’m sure it’s been largely forgotten by now.

Fungi, mold, parasites, yeasts?  They’re all in the same category of “Overlooked Pathogens That Emulate Other Diseases”.  Said another way, “Your Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cholesterol, etc., May Actually Resolve Itself When You Treat Them Like Fungi/Parasites First”.

This is why I use a term with my clients:  FUPO.  Fungal Until Proven Otherwise.  Do you see why?

Here’s the link to the news story, (P.S. - For those of you who enjoy puns, notice what the surgeon says about how these worms are showing up at their hospital more frequently nowadays.  He said, “At first, I thought this was a fluke“….):
