Brain-Eating Parasite Claims Boy’s Life

Zachary Reyna, the twelve-year-old Florida youth, died on Saturday after coming into contact with a brain-eating parasite.

Members of Zachary Reyna’s family told WBBH that they believe Zachary came into contact with the amoeba, called Naegleria fowleri, while he was kneeboarding in a shallow gully. The gully served as the perfect breeding ground for the parasite due to the shallow level combined with the higher temperatures of the water.

Zachary Reyna was unusually listless and tired, which prompted the concern of his parents who took him to the hospital where he was diagnosed with amoebic meningeoencephalitis and underwent emergency surgery.

According to Dr. Dirk Haselow of the Arkansas Department of Health, “This infection is one of the most severe infections that we know of, ninety-nine percent of people who get it die.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) details symptoms for the public where the first observable signs are typically fever and headache. These symptoms usually manifest themselves within the first seven days after contact with the parasite. According to the CDC, “Later symptoms include confusion, lack of attention to people and surroundings, loss of balance, seizures and hallucinations. After the start of symptoms, the disease progresses rapidly and usually causes death within one to 12 days.”

Even though the amoeba attacks the brain, the passage of entry is typically the nose, which is why using nose plugs are advised while engaging in water recreational activities in shallow, warm water.

Supporters of the brave boy shared the sad news through a Facebook post that read, “The battle is over for Zac but he won the war.” The post went on to further eulogize the lasting memory in which the tragedy took a heroic individual who had only just gotten started in life. “Even though Zac has passed, he will still be saving many lives.”

    Get Rid Of Parasites With Herbs:

    From Optimally Organic



    Everyone should do a parasite detox at least once every 3 months.
    It will keep you feeling young, healthy, clear minded, and energized!!

    Optimally Organic Parasite Cleanse
    (For a Candida Cleanse, skip the Chaga and opt for the Essiac Tea in its place)
    Fulvic Ionic Minerals X350
    Japanese Red Pine Needle Oil
    Siberian Chaga Mushroom

    Optional Items: Raw Organic Hawaiian Noni Powder, Wheatgrass or Barley Grass Juice Powder, and
    Organic Essiac Tea – 8 Herb Blend

    Recommended Use:
    Fulvic Ionic Minerals X350: 3-7 drops diluted in 15oz chlorine and fluoride free water, once daily for the first 1-2 weeks. Slowly increase to 3 times per day.

    Japanese Red Pine Needle Oil: 7-12 drops directly in the mouth (approx. 1 dropper full) once daily for the first 1-2 weeks with food. Slowly increase to 3 times per day. If using capsules, take 1 capsule daily for 1-2 weeks, then increase to 4-5 capsules per day. Take with food.

    Siberian Chaga Mushroom: Make into a tea by placing 1 tsp. in cup, add boiling water, and let steep for 10 minutes before drinking. Do this 2-3 times per day. Ensure last cup is before 6pm as it contains an abundance of B vitamin complex, including B12 that may keep you awake.

    Parasite eggs hatch during the full moon so be sure to continue this protocol through at least 2 full moon cycles (60+ days). Avoid all sugars (including fruits and fruit juices), flour, sodas, and processed foods. During this time we highly recommend going on an all organic raw food diet, preferably vegetables only. Drink plenty of clean water. It’s a good idea to take an organic probiotic to restore beneficial intestinal flora. We offer a Raw Organic Hawaiian Noni Powder rich in probiotics.

    During your cleanse you may experience foul odor sweating or breathe, fatigue, headaches or sore throat as your body detoxes. This is normal and should subside within 7-10 days or less. Try to get plenty of rest and avoid stress during your cleanse.

    Topical Applications for skin that is red, swollen and itchy, whether from detoxification, from skin parasites like Morgellons, or Candida. Make a poultice using 1 therapeutic serving size of each item above. Adding our dry Organic Essiac Tea – 8 Herb Blend to the poultice is ideal. Apply directly to affected areas, being sure to avoid contact with clothing as the minerals will stain. Apply a loose bandage, being sure to allow the area to breathe. Itching should stop on contact, and improvement should be seen within 24-72 hours. Some rashes/infections will becomes worse before they become better and is sometimes called a “healing crisis”. If this happens, your healing crisis should last no more than 3 days, then you should see rapid improvement.

    Optional Retention Enemas
    Parasite eggs tend to embed in the colon and lower intestines. To address these eggs we highly suggest retention enemas once to twice per week during your cleanse.

    Fill your tub with warm/hot bath water and create a relaxing environment. Start with 2-3, 6oz warm water enemas (or high colonic) until elimination runs clear. Prepare your retention enema using 2 drops Fulvic Ionic Minerals X350 and 3 drops Japanese Red Pine Needle Oil to 8-10oz of warm water.
    Retain as much of the solution as you can comfortable hold for 15-20 minutes, laying on your back in the tub several minutes, on each side for several minutes, and gently on your stomach/face down for several minutes to thoroughly saturate your colon walls.

    THINGS TO AVOID DURING YOUR DETOX (Parasites feed of most of these items!)

    Red meat, and any meat products like sausages and burgers
    Milk, cheese, cream
    Butter and margarine
