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 UNLESS PROPERLY PRESCRIBED. The sharing of information is fine, but the thread will be watched closely to ensure nothing gets out of hand.

I'm not aware if Ivermection has potential for IBD but while scientists are studying Ivermectin for covid, the few studies im aware of show its about 30% effective, and certaintly not approved yet for public use. but the vaccines that are available are much more effective up to 96% effective at preventing severe covid symptoms, so Ivermection really isn't that exciting but may prove useful in the future.

Also the nobel prize was awarded to the creators of Ivermection in 2015, and it was made for use in humans and animals

William C. Campbell discovered that one of Ōmura’s Streptomyces cultures was very effective in killing off parasites and the active compound, Avermectin, was purified. Avermectin was further modified to Ivermectin, which turned out to be highly effective in both animals and humans against a variety of parasites, including those that cause River Blindness and Lymphatic Filariasis.

Lisa,

Ivermectin won a nobel prize in 2015 not in animal medicine, IN HUMAN MEDICINE. This is not a horse medicine, it is a pill used in humans that has won a Nobel Prize.


Ivermectin is highly effective against a range of parasites, has limited side effects and is freely available across the globe. The importance of Ivermectin for improving the health and wellbeing of millions of individuals with River Blindness and Lymphatic Filariasis, primarily in the poorest regions of the world, is immeasurable. Treatment is so successful that these diseases are on the verge of eradication, which would be a major feat in the medical history of humankind.
If that's not enough proof, 146,000 PEOPLE, not Animals, were prescribed this medication in 2019.


So I think YOU should be more careful with some of the things you say, because it is you who is spreading disinformation. In all honestly, you shouldn't have locked the other Covid Vaccine thread either as people were freely and respectfully sharing information and you come in and closed it down for no reason. And now you are threatening to close this one. No wonder this forum is practically dead.
 
I think this is interesting. I definitely have had better success in maintaining my health when I started to treat crohns as an infection, and not an immune system malfunction. The high success rate of things like worm wood inducing remission really validates that something is going with some sort of infection. Whether its a fungus, map, or something else who knows.

Lisa, I don't think KenK said anything about self medicating, so not sure why you made that jump. If you look at the approval process for drugs, they are approved or not approved based on what was requested. DMSO is a great example. It is mainly used for horse inflammation but does have a use in humans also and is being used for more things all the time.

I don't think it is unreasonable for people to discuss things they read about off label drugs. I am sure there are bunch of people that are thankful for the offlabel use of drugs, people who have had success with AntiMap therapy come to mind.

Also, I read that other vaccine thread. I think people need to relax on this. Some people are skeptical of vaccines, and that is ok. We shouldn't be shying away from those discussions we should encourage them. Only through open and free dialogue can we learn. This whole new idea if I don't agree with what you say so I am going to end the conversation either by calling you an ism or just closing a thread is very troubling and creating division in our world.

As an FYI, I got the vaccine, that was the my analysis of the risk. But I realize others will make a different choice, and this ok also. Freedom is hard, but we should cherish the pains of freedom.
 
I agree poppysocks nicely said. I thought the exact same regarding your comments about how the forum is policed.

And yes it makes you think why even bother on here.

Well done for standing up and saying something: )

My comment was in reference to the people who are self-medicating - buying product that is intended for animal use - here in New York, you can't buy ivermectin off the shelf any more, it is kept locked up due to people using it 'off label' instead of getting it through proper channels and formulated properly.


As for locking the other thread, as I stated in my post there, the original intent of the thread was derailed. People are more than welcome to start a new one and as long as there remains a civil discussion in it the thread will remain open.
