Ivermectin and Fenbendazole

I'm sure you have all heard about people using Ivermectin for Covid.

I decided to look into it for other uses, like IBD.

Quite a few studies showing it shrinks tumors, including in colon cancer.

Also used topically for skin lesions caused by Rosacea.

Here's someone talking about using it for skin cancer: https://greatawakening.win/p/12kFn7EkBo/--my-ivermectin-story-not-sure-w/
One reply here mentions using it for leaky gut.

And then there's Fenbendazole: https://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/fenbendazole/

Makes me wonder if it may have use for IBD. Anybody with IBD happen to use Ivermectin?

I'd never use a medication such as Ivermectin to try to self-medicate - there are specific reasons why a medication is intended for animal use only, just like some medications are for human use only.

Just as there are 'success' stories around the internet, there are just as many cautionary ones where people have made themselves sicker or even died from improper use of medications.

Now speaking as Admin, the site shall not and will not encourage such use of medications. The sharing of information is fine, but the thread will be watched closely to ensure nothing gets out of hand.
