Could on the world's most common parasite (spread by cats)
be involved with your so-called psychiatric problems,
such as anxiety or depression?
Toxoplasma gondii is a single-celled, infectious microorganism called a protozoan. It is NOT a bacterial germ.
Toxoplasma is a parasite that has been reported in medical literature to be significant in people who are immuno-suppressed, specifically in the case of AIDS. Of course, Lyme disease can also significantly harm one’s immune system. Therefore, Toxoplasma can be a major factor in your illness.
Common symptoms associated with Toxoplasma include headache, confusion, seizures, coordination problems, and fever. What perhaps is even more significant is that Toxoplasma may be linked to mental illnesses as schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder.
It is one of the world’s most common infections, yet it seems to be rarely considered medically.
Syphilis has been long-known to trigger psychosis. Borrelia, the bacterium of Lyme disease has been reported to potentially cause nearly any mental illness. It is not a new discovery that microorganisms can inhabit the human brain.
Associations have been made by scientists between Streptococcus bacteria and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and nervous tics. Research has also shown a relationship between a herpes virus and bipolar disorder.
It has been suggested that Toxoplasma can result in impairment in reaction time, which can in turn, increase one’s chances of auto accidents.
Toxoplasma has been linked with anti-social, aggressive, and jealous behavior in men. Toxoplasmosis has been associated with promiscuity in women. It also has been implicated in bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. The implication is that Toxoplasma gondii can affect one’s thoughts and actions.
Numerous medical studies show that INFECTION is a common cause of "mental illness!"
Maybe. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much motivation for more research effort towards Toxoplasma and its relationship to psychiatric illness, Lyme disease, and other these problems.
Could it be that researching effective treatment for eliminating such a germ would be destructive to the profits of the psychiatric drug industry? Considering that Toxoplasma can cause chronic headaches alone, shouldn’t it be something regularly evaluated?
But it simply is not.
Cats transmit the harmful parasite, toxoplasma
This parasite reproduces magnificently inside cats. Cats get infected from eating infected mice, rats, birds, and other small animals, and spread Toxoplasma to humans through their feces. This is why pregnant women are advised to not clean cat litter boxes.
Toxoplasma is one of the most commonly spread microorganisms in the entire world. It can be spread through handling and/or eating undercooked and contaminated meat, such as lamb, pork, or venison. Poultry livestock that are fed Toxoplasma contaminated food or water can be a problem too.
Outdoor cats can contaminate water and soil with Toxoplasma, so clearly one does not need to have direct contact with a cat, or infected meat to have this microbe enter the body.
Unwashed fruits or vegetables can even spread it, which is why I suggest avoiding eating uncooked foods from restaurants (that’s right… salads can be bad for you!).
Years ago, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported the following:
“Toxoplasmosis is considered to be a leading cause of death attributed to food borne illness in the United States. More than 60 million men, women, and children in the U.S. carry the Toxoplasma parasite, but very few have symptoms because the immune system usually keeps the parasite from causing illness. However, women newly infected with Toxoplasma during pregnancy and anyone with a compromised immune system should be aware that toxoplasmosis can have severe consequences. Toxoplasmosis is considered one of the Neglected Parasitic Infections, a group of five parasitic diseases that have been targeted by CDC for public health action.”
Toxoplasmosis has been associated with mental illness, including schizophrenia
But why wouldn’t it be? There is no safe drug to treat it, anyway.
Therefore, diagnosing people with conditions for which there ARE drugs makes more sense, financially! After surveying my patients over several years, few have ever heard of it. If you have a disturbed immune system, blood tests for Toxoplasma could be useful, and you should discuss such with your conventional medical doctor. Regarding treatment, there are powerful and aggressive prescription medicine approaches (most specifically for AIDS patients) that are suggested by the CDC, for which I will not comment on in this article.

How often does a psychiatrist order blood tests for Toxoplasma?
Life Cyle of Toxoplasma Parasite
The CDC states that a strong immune system is how one best deals with existence of this microorganism.
Of course, the CDC does not tell you how to make that happen!
