Article about his recent findings, with lots of discussion. Dr MacDonald came on at the end of the comments to respond.

Thanks, Robin.

The home page is also a good one to check. Today, they also have an article about a case of RMSF in Michigan.

Is Alan MacDonald's discovery published in a medical journal? Where is this research documented to be cited?

Thanks!

I keep thinking about my grandma, who had Parkinsons. She lived with us. So sick, and she suffered SO MUCH.

If I find out at some point that this could have been alleviated with a couple of rounds of Ivermectin I am going to be beside myself.

Well, I can assure you that, at least generally, Parkinsons is nothing that would typically be alleviated with a couple rounds of ivermectin.

The great Dr. K who for many years has acknowledged Parkinsons as often lyme related, also has used parasite meds including ivermectin for many years. Still, last I heard, some years ago, was that he struggled to help Parkinsons patients. Not that he didn't try, but even for him it was quite a challenge.

I think heavy metals probably play a big role in parkinsons.

Great info, thanks Robin!
