Why do medications like ORAP (pimozide), Zyprexa, Abilify, Risperdal, Wellbrutrin, Olanzapine, Zolof, and Serequel that are listed in my book, How to Get Your Life Back from Morgellons... have in common? Is it that they are only used for those suffering from psychosis meaning we're all psychotic? or is it because they block dopamine? This has been a long standing question that is finally answered.
The answer is in this article, sent to me by Julia, which states, "Pimozide inhibits parasite invasion and replication." This article is about Toxoplasmais which is the Toxoplasma gondii parasite-- According to the CDC,"Toxoplasmosis is considered to be a leading cause of death attributed to foodborne illness in the United States." It is a protozoa parasite that is often a co factor in those with Lyme disease and "More than 40 million men, women, and children in the U.S. carry the Toxoplasma parasite."
But, while many of us may have this protozoan parasite, all of us are dealing with mites and Collembola. It's reasonable to me that high dopamine levels in the brain have a lot to do with the parasitic activation and the attraction factor experienced by many.
So, when you hear someone say that these meds are only anti-psychotic meds, call them a dope because it's all about dopamine (pun intended) and then take a deep breadth (stress management technique) and smile at them and explain that parasites love dopamine and these meds lower dopamine levels in the brain and therefore they are anti parasitic medications. It has been demonstrated time and time again that those who utilize these medications find it easier to advance on the King Diet™ and get their lives back. Personally, I found pimozide as important as Nature's Gift Debriding Soap in cleaning my skin.
