Can Stun Gun kill Parasite in human body? (500,000 volt )

Asked by DanielKim (27 points ) December 13th, 2012

3 Natural doctors told me I do have parasite infection.(Ascaris,Strongyloides,Faciolopsis Buski). so I took anti parasitic herbs. and they helped me a lot so far. but when I stop taking herbs, the symptoms relapse. So I am now thinking to get stunned by stun gun. 500,000 voltage. one probe on the belly button area and the other probe at the back side around Liver area. and I am trying to see if this is worth to try.

Why in the world do you not just get some antibiotics, or whatever they use to kill parasites in the body?
Surely there are medications that can kill this strain of parasite.
A stun gun sounds like an extremely bizarre alternative, to me.
Sorry, I think your nuts.

Good luck. Make sure to do it in front of an ER, just in case.

DanielKim's avatar

I asked my neighbor to pull the trigger of the stun gun for me since I can not release the trigger by myself. once I do it to me by myself , the electricity will freeze my muscles I guess. but when he came to my house to do it for me, he changed his mind. because he was so scared. so I am still suffering with symptoms and still in searching people who can do it to me. by the way in case of Tissue invasive parasitic infection is very hard to eradicate I read somewhere in the internet.

@DanielKim Well…...exploding your heart with 500,000 volts kinda takes care of the parasite.
Go to the doctor!
I think the parasite has entered your brain quite frankly.

syz's avatar

Not sure what herbs you’re using, but there are very effective dewormers commonly avaialable.

No, electricity doesn’t work that way.

If you really think you have a parasite, go to a doctor and get some real medicine.

You do know that your doctor can treat all of these infections quite easily? Have you parasite free by the weekend?

Also the odds of getting three infections by chance is minute so you’re gonna have to look at your water source and where exactly human feaces is entering it.

DanielKim's avatar

I have been seeing doctor for 9 months since March this year. but all the tests came back normal except one thing. that is Monocyte reading is higher than normal. reading was 11.8%.
and the doctor said it is nothing. the problem is I feel so sick while all doctors are saying I am normal.and Doctors doesn’t prescribe any Anti- parasitic medicine without the test result.

syz's avatar

@DanielKim Then how did you come by that specific list of parasites?

DanielKim's avatar

there are people doing the test from the saliva sample. and they told me I do have those infections. because the western medicine can not identify parasites unless the infections are in digestive tracks.

BhacSsylan's avatar

If the tests came back fine, then it’s not a parasite. They got it from a saliva sample, but it’s not in your digestive tract? What tests did they do on your saliva, pray tell? If you really had all those, your intestines would be ridiculous and you’d quite possibly be dead, carrying that many at once. Also, you would be vomitting up and passing worms in your stool, as well as coughing up blood. This is ridiculous, and you’re being fed lies by your naturopaths (not that I expect much better).

syz's avatar

So “people” are somehow more knowledgable than western medicine? (Western medicine that has largely eliminated parasitism in the population to the extent that it’s theorized that some of our increase in auto-immune diseases may be related to the lack of parasites?)

Don’t let quacks sell you a bill of goods. If you are sick and your doctor hasn’t been able to give you an answer, ask for a referral. Keep looking for answers from experts – don’t let desperation drive you to make foolish decisions and risk your health (such as tasing yourself).

DanielKim's avatar

I was almost dead. Literally and seriously. I couldn’t even walk while all doctors says I am normal. what would you do if you can feel you are going down real fast while western doctors says you are normal.? I guess you Too would like to try alternative medicine if they can save your life. at least I would give it a try before die. wormwood and clove really saved my life at least temporarily. I mean I am still not fully recovered. I read several internet articles about tissue invasive parasitic infection and it is true that finding or identifying the tissue invasive parasite infection is difficult by the western medicine method. many times they know when they really open up the body and see them with microscope.

BhacSsylan's avatar

Also this: “the western medicine can not identify parasites unless the infections are in digestive tracks” is false for several reasons. Fasciolopsis only exists in the digestive tract (it enters you via injestion), so while techincally true that it can’t identify it elsewhere, that’s because it has no need to. And Ascaris and Strongyloides can both be detected in blood tests.

And if it’s in your muscles, which it probably is not, why can a blood test not find them, yet a saliva test can? These people are lying to you, plain and simple. Get a second opinion, but from a doctor, not a lying quack who’s taking advantage of your desperation to bilk you for money.

JLeslie's avatar

What exactly are your symptoms?

My aunt had some sort of parasite in India, and never really was the same after that. I have had chronic problems that I won’t go into, where western medicine did not have the answer, but neither did alternative medicine. If alternative medicine had a magic answer, western medicine would adopt that cure.

DanielKim's avatar

@BhacSsylan Fasciolopsis can go anywhere in the body. and for the detect of ascaris and strongyloides by blood test is not easy when it is in the body tissue.

BhacSsylan's avatar

Then how is it detectable in your saliva? And Fasciolopsis can not go ‘anywhere in the body’, at least according to people who actually study parasites.

DanielKim's avatar

@JLeslie
my symptoms are losing weight, low appetite, general feeling of illness, night sweat, skin trouble, eczema, ear noise,abdomen cramp, low immune etc.

JLeslie's avatar

@DanielKim I’m sorry you are suffering so much. :(. What types of doctors have you seen? Gastrointeologist? Rheumotologist maybe?

What country are you in?

DanielKim's avatar

fasciolopsis can be found in the liver,pancrease,in the blood,thymus,adrenal at least. but I think the list of location can be added more through the further research.

BhacSsylan's avatar

Not according to actual medical research. Do you have any sources for that claim?

DanielKim's avatar

from different sources. books, internet.
may be I can not give you actual scientific sources.
have you ever read the book “parasite rex”
it is written by carl zimmer.
you will may have better understanding about parasite if you read this.
they are smart and silent and eating you alive.

LuckyGuy's avatar

NO NO NO!!! The reason a stun gun does not kill you is the electrodes are close together ~20 mm so the current flows across the surface.of your skin. It will not do serious damage that way. In normal use while running across the skin it might give you a superficial burn but that is it. DO NOT RUN IT THROUGH YOUR BODY. It can KILL you. You body is basically a bag of salt water – an excellent conductor. The signals in your nerves are just a few microvolts. This will greatly over power them. You have no idea what it will do.

I have had the “pleasure” of being zapped with a TENS unit of a few hundred volts. It made me completely lose control of my bladder.

By the way, did you notice how the electrodes on the stun gun are fixed firmly in the housing so you can’t remove them? They are that way for a reason. They do not want people spreading them out or attaching wires to them.

DanielKim's avatar

@Luckyguy :

really?. have you ever seen the policeman using taser gun. when they shoot , 2 probes hit the target and zap it. the distance between the probes are around 1~2 feet apart normally. but it doesn’t cause any permant damages to the target. what do you think?.

BhacSsylan's avatar

I have not, but I can assure you Carl Zimmer would not say that fasciolopsis can go anywhere, since he knows how science works, and in his book he references it as it actually is: an intestinal parasite. I know quite a good deal about parasites, not as much as a parasitologist, but enough. The reason you can’t give me real sources is because it’s not real. You are still being lied to, and need a better opinion from a real doctor.

syz's avatar

Actually, I have read Parasite Rex, it’s a great book and it’s currently sitting on my bookshelf. It will certainly make you more prone to washing your hands more often (and less likely to dangle a penis in river water). Not sure how it applies in this situation, however.

When I spent six weeks in rural Laos, we handed out dewormers obtained from the local pharmacy to our workers with each paycheck. We had found (via fecal flotation) that most of them had a pretty heavy infestation load. I also propholactically treated myself for liver flukes when I returned since I had unknowlingly eaten an uncooked item that was known to be a source of infestation.

You know, if you’re just going to argue medicine, parisitology, and how stun guns work with everyone that answers, then sure, go ahead, tase yourself, bro.

DanielKim's avatar

@BhacSsylan : Ok thank you for your comment.

DanielKim's avatar

@syz :

thank you for encouraging me to do it. if I get cured by this method, that will be aewsome.
the stun gun is one of my last three hopes for now. one is stun gun, the second one is fasting , the third one is oxygen chamber which will cost me lot of money.
the only thing I worried about is what if stun gun cause me brain damage, seizure, heart attack. etc. but I think I am going to go ahead and do it. thank you

JLeslie's avatar

I’m worried you have a wrong diagnosis.

BhacSsylan's avatar

I am deeply sorry science has no place in your possible options. No matter where a parasite is, a stun gun will not kill it (of course, neither would fasting if it’s in your muscles as you think, but whatever). But I do hope you come through this intact, if you do end up doing it. Have someone there for safety’s sake, at the very least.

DanielKim's avatar

@BhacSsylan : could you tell me specificly why it won’t kill it.?. because of low amprage?

BhacSsylan's avatar

Electricity will not course through you in the way you think it will. If it did it would kill you. Do you plan on electrocuting your every limb and large section of your torso multiple times? And no, i don’t care what you think the answer is, you shouldn’t. Doing it mutliple times will stop your heart, from stress if nothing else. Any given shock will arc through you from one electrode to the other. It will branch very little from there. It will probably not penetrate highly, and if it does it can interrupt your heart as well as cause neurological damage. If you actually had a parasite in you, the chances of any given arc hitting and killing one would be incredibly small, and if you did kill one it would result in cysts and other in situ inflammations as the result of dead foreign material. It’s a terrible idea.

But why you’d start listening to me now I have no idea.

gasman's avatar

Is this a joke? I agree with @BhacSsylan – see a real doctor – MD or DO. The diagnosis sounds bogus & the treatment is 100% bogus & dangerous as well – not “worth a try.” If you think you have intestinal worms, how is zapping the liver supposed to eradicate them from the body? lmao! If you want to safely experience taser fire (why?) make sure there’s a cardiac defibrillator in the same room. Helminthiasis – worms – can be treated with prescription drugs, assuming the stool sample was analyzed at a certified lab to confirm the diagnosis. Upshot: cook all meat & wash your hands.

LuckyGuy's avatar

@DanielKim Yes, I am quite familiar with the design of “long range” tasers. Look at where the leads hit. Now imagine the flow of electricity. Where does it travel? Across the surface of the skin. Not through the body. There has not been a taser yet that shoots one probe in front and one in behind. Thankfully!
If you try it, do let us know. You can be a statistic – one way or the other.

DanielKim's avatar

@BhacSsylan :
I have been listening to you from the beginning. I am simply feeding back based on what I know and believe. and that is the way we communicate each other I guess. but stun says it will not cause any permenant damage on human body. I did some research on stun gun. and the reason it doesn’t cause damage is because of low amprage. so my question is basically low amprage loaded stun gun can not kill parasites in the human body.
honestly, I have tried to take albendazole for 4 days it make me feel bad.I thought it cause trouble on my liver but on the other hand the symptoms I had has been improved while I am taking the albendazole.

@DanielKim What country are you in? I may be able to lead to you some good physicians. I work for a large scale community of M.D. union.

DanielKim's avatar

I performed a experiment with earthworm today. I did put 8 earthworm and 1 cutworm in a plastic bowl and poured little bit of water and pinch of salt. and then I connect the wires from the stun gun and merged 2 wire tips into the water where the earthworms are. then I pulled the trigger of stun gun. guess what happen.!! they looked shocked move around very virgorously but they didn’t die at all. I tried about 10 times. the stun gun didn’t hurt them at all. so may be it is not going to help me.

DanielKim's avatar

@_Whitetigress Hello. I am in state of Virginia in U.S

_Whitetigress's avatar

@DanielKim Is your insurance limiting your ability to select a physician of your liking?

DanielKim's avatar

@_Whitetigress Actually I have no insurance. somebody told me I should apply for medicade. but social office worker told me I can not be approved unless I got disabled. I don’t know what that means. anyway No insurance.

PhiNotPi's avatar

Stun guns will hurt you a lot more than they will hurt any parasites that you might have. Please don’t get yourself seriously injured by attempting this.

DanielKim's avatar

@_Whitetigress :
Do you know any Doctor who knows specific blood test to verify or identify any parasitic infection. I do have increased monocyte reading.( 11.8% ). Do you have any ideas what this means?

dabbler's avatar

Goofing around with things like a stun gun can be fun, but don’t include your own body in the experiment.

I have seen some information suggesting that parasites can be treated with specific current levels at specific frequencies. But :
– I have not seen any serious evidence that any of those techniques worked.
– Those current and voltage and frequencies are NOTHING like those from a stun gun.

snowberry's avatar

Here’s a source you may not have seen. http://www.naturalnews.com/027333_oregano_parasites.html

If you choose to try oregano oil, make sure it’s been refined to the point you can take it internally. One such brand is Oreganol, and it’s available in health food stores and over the Internet. It’s quite expensive, but the cheaper oils are not safe to take internally. I also PM’ed you.

You can take large amounts of it, but it’s pretty nasty tasting. You would want to put it in capsules, take it, and then put a little food on top of it. You can also buy it already in capsules.

BhacSsylan's avatar

Stun guns have disputed safety, and depending on your risk factors yes, it can kill you. And as I said, repeated shocks will eventually affect you, as the stun gun will cause involuntary muscle spasms that, if repeated often enough, will hurt you. Not to mention the possibility of of cardiac arrest if you hit the wrong spot.

And yes, as I said, even if the arc hits them there’s no saying it would actually die. So, again, a terrible idea.

As to oregano oil, it probably wouldn’t hurt you but I haven’t been able to find any actual evidence of it’s efficacy against parasites. It’s antibacterial, and possibly anti-tick, which is interesting, but not really antiparasitic. NaturalNews does not quote any scientific sources (again, unsurprised), and even most of those sources do not claim anti-parasitic properties, only antibacterial and antioxidant properties (which have been tested). I’d save your money. You know, for a real doctor.

snowberry's avatar

Well considering that he has NO other options, what would you have the poor guy do? He’s already explained he cannot find a doctor in his area who will treat him. At least oregano oil won’t hurt, and might help!

Or perhaps you would prefer that he just quietly continue on in agony…(sorry @BhacSsylan, but that was such an insensitive response but I have come to expect this sort of thing from Fluther)!

BhacSsylan's avatar

He has not actually said that, he said that one doctor in his area has not corroborated the parasite result, and he has no insurance. That doesn’t mean no others are available, and I was also hoping @_Whitetigress might know other physicians in the area who could potentially see him without insurance.

And sorry, no, I’m am not for advising he waste his money on a treatment you admit is expensive, and yet has no evidence of efficacy. I am advising him to save his money so he can see someone who has a chance of actually helping. Do not mistake my passion against quack remedies for lack of compassion. I want to get him help. But real help, not false hope.

And considering the advice of the naturopaths has already led to him using a side effect heavy anti-parasitic (how did you get that, btw? I would be surprised if it’s available over the counter) and attempting to shock himself with a stun gun, I’m going to stick with advising he try and find a real doctor.

Eosinophilia is more common a blood finding than monocytosis in patients with parasitic worms, but either could occur, it seems. Ascariasis (Mayo Clinic)

DanielKim's avatar

@gasman :
if this is the case of ascaris,
Is there any clinical method to confirm it?
the stool test came back negative with nomal range of Candida infection.
(parasitology center in AZ)

gasman's avatar

@DanielKim That’s beyond my expertise. What makes you think you have ascariasis if the stool is negative for parasites & eggs? (The lab seems reputable.) From what I read online the stool sample should be positive in all but the earliest infections. Try to see an infectious disease specialist, or possibly tropical medicine.
