Laboratory at Women’s College Hospital can’t find worms in worm filled stool samples…What gives?

This is a review of the laboratory at Women’s College Hospital ONLY…

I submitted 7 stool samples, carefully done over 3 days…

I had a case of Raccoon Roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis), which involves very long & dangerous worms…

I made sure to sort through my stool each morning, carefully picking up a worm to put it into the container(my apologies for being graphic)…

Though I knew from comparing photos, & from the fact that I had handled a raccoon(had been hit by a car, I took it to a veterinary emergency clinic), what the worm was, it is hard to get medication without lab confirmation…

The results came back: blood, negative, urine, negative, stool sample, negative…

Apparently the lab found absolutely nothing…Despite having worms in bottles?

Anyways…I had to order Albendazole from an online pharmacy & treat myself…In the interim I got Combantrin (Pyrantel Pamoate)from the pharmacist…

38% of the raccoons in Toronto had raccoon roundworm last time they checked…It can be fatal in humans…One would expect a laboratory to be able to identify a worm in a stool sample when given one…

Worms are also implicated today as being the underlying cause of cancer…Which is why antiparasitics are the first line of treatment when you go to a cancer centre in Mexico(The Mayans were smart)…

Hospitals in Canada need to address the need for worm/parasite identification, especially from a laboratory perspective…If they are missing it in stool samples, then there is no diagnosis, people are left untreated, & worse outcome scenarios are an eventuality…

I am very surprised that the laboratory could not find any worms in 7 bottles full of worms…Disappointed…A brand new building apparently doesn’t mean better technology, better diagnostics, or better standard of health care…Just better placebo effect…

Dr. Jay Keystone said this was not a worm…

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
