How Dysentery Effects Children
Dysentery is one of the oldest known gastrointestinal disorders, having been described as early as the Peloponnesian War in the fifth century B.C. Dysentery is an inflammatory disorder of the intestine, especially of the colon, that results in severe diarrhea containing mucus, pus (infection), fever, and often times blood in the feces , abdominal pain, and in some cases vomiting. Certain forms of dysentery are highly infectious.
Dysentery is a very common and serious disease that occurs throughout the world, and is an especially prevalent disease in third world countries and developing nations. Since 1991, dysentery epidemics have occurred in eight countries in Southern and Central Africa [Angola, Burundi, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Zambia]. In third world countries and in developing nations dysentery is more often than not fatal if left untreated. Epidemic dysentery is a major problem among refugee populations, where overcrowding and poor sanitation facilitate transmission. Epidemics are characterized by severe disease, high death rates, person-to-person spread, and multiple antibiotic resistances. Depending on what statistics one refers to, approximately 165 million people worldwide develop dysentery each year, and about 1 million people die from it. More people die of dysentery worldwide each year than any other disease. Most of these deaths occur in third world countries and in developing nations among children under age five. In contrast, the United States experiences only about 25,000 to 30,000 cases each year with extremely few reported deaths.
Dysentery is caused by a number of infectious agents ranging from viruses and bacteria, to protozoa and parasitic worms. Dysentery may also result from chemical irritation of the intestines. Whereas viral dysentery in infants is caused by rotaviruses and coronavirus, while caliciviruses is one of the common disease agents in adults. Of the types of protozoa that cause dysentery, cryptosporidium is the most common. There are also several types of bacteria that cause dysentery, including salmonella and E. coli. The most severe dysentery caused by E. coli is from the E. coli 0157:H7 strain. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the biggest cause of dysentery in developing nations and third world countries is a bacterium called Shigella. In Shigella, as few as 10 bacteria can cause illness; (by comparison, it takes about one billion salmonella bacteria to cause dysentery). With Shigella infection, like the viral and E coli 0157:H7 strains, they destroy cells that line the large intestine, which in turns causes mucosal ulcers in the intestine which leads to large amounts of mucous, pus (infection) and blood in the diarrhea/feces. When blood and pus (infection) is entering into the diarrhea/feces, then feces and pus (infection) is able to enter into the patient’s blood stream. This exacerbates the patient’s condition at an alarming rate. If this condition is not reversed (in many cases immediately reversed), the blood becomes more and more toxic from the feces and pus which causes the blood Ph level to drop to dangerous levels. This will ultimately lead to death, many times in less than 12 hours from disease onset. Unfortunately, many pathogens that cause different strains of dysentery are becoming resistant to common antibiotics. If, in fact, there are any effective medications available for the particular type of dysentery being treated that the pathogen has not developed immunity to, they are often in short supply in third world countries and in developing nations. If necessary, a doctor may have to reserve antibiotics for those at highest risk for death, including young children, people over 50, and anyone suffering from dehydration or malnutrition. Children are at greater risk of becoming dehydrated from dysentery, and bacillary dysentery in particular can lead to a child's death from dehydration in as little as 12 hours. If the child’s immune system has been compromised from malnutrition, malaria or other disease the child’s death can occur in less time than that.
Symptoms of Dysentery
Dysentery is primarily caused by one or more of the following: Shigella, Rotavirus, Coronavirus, E. coli, cryptosporidium and other etiologies. If the causative agent is found in contaminated drinking water or food, ingestion must be stopped immediately or the symptoms will continue. However even if the contaminated drinking water and food are eliminated from the patients diet, the dysentery symptoms will continue unabated until proper treatment protocol is administered.
Symptomatology of dysentery is as follows:
a. Sudden onset
b. Profuse watery stool
c. Blood in the stool
d. Mucus in the stool
e. Pus (infection) in the stool
f. Occasionally accompanied with projectile vomiting
g. Extremely rapid dehydration
h. Marked depression and fear
i. Rapid loss of strength, becoming extremely weak in a very short period of time
j. Rapid weight loss
k. Dull eyes
n. Severe stomach cramps
o. Coma and death
Dysentery Stop™ is a patented, all natural, plant derived, mineral supplement. For over 17 years, Dysentery Stop™ has proven to be highly effective in the treatment of dysentery in many parts of the world. Dysentery Stop™ has been used to treat many patients in clinical settings and in the field in very remote locations worldwide, including, but not limited to, Alaska, Republic of Congo, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
One of the most amazing cases in treating dysentery ever witnessed by a Dr. McKinney was while traveling in Africa. Dr. McKinney describes the experience: “We were traveling on business in the Republic of Congo (ROC) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). My close friend and business associate of many years, Patrick, from the USA, and I had arrived at Brazzaville (the capital of ROC) for several days of meetings. For our entire trip of several weeks we were accompanied by another business associate of ours, a very intelligent and well educated Congolese man from Brazzaville named Thomas (not his real name). Thomas is very fluent in French, Italian, Lingala, and Swahili. Patrick speaks fluent French and English so between the two of them translating we were able to communicate with almost anyone in either country. I remember that one of the most startling things for me to see (aside from the unimaginable and indescribable suffering of children) was how everyone ate egg mayonnaise that had been setting out on the tables without refrigeration for many days in the very humid 110°+F. temperatures. People ate it in very generous amounts on nearly everything, from French bread to their main courses. I was astonished that they did not become violently ill from food poisoning with this eating practice. Patrick has also always been astonished at this, even after having spent over 35 years in Arica. I distinctly remember thinking that “if the local population can get away with this eating habit without becoming violently ill, then the dysentery in this country must be unimaginably severe”. Little did we know that Dysentery Stop would be put to the ultimate test.
After several days of meetings in Brazzaville we continued by chartered boat across the Congo River to Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, for additional meetings. After one particular point Thomas did not appear for the next meeting. On inquiring as to his whereabouts we were informed that he was in his room, which was very odd for him, to say the least. We knocked at his door and he was eventually, after several minutes, able to make it to the door but with great effort. When less than an hour before he appeared to be asymptomatic (having no symptoms), he was now extremely frightened, bent over in a fetal like position (being unable to stand erect from excruciating abdominal pain), and was severely dehydrated. Through interpretation, I found that he now had profuse watery and bloody diarrhea of extremely sudden onset, and that if he even drank a small amount of bottled water he would immediately have a violent bowl movement and projectile vomiting. He also said that he has had family members and close friends die of the type of dysentery and he was sure that he was going to die within the next few hours. I quickly retrieved a two (2) ounce bottle of Dysentery Stop from my room, administered approximately two teaspoons to him, and told him to take two teaspoons every time that he had another bowl movement. After administering the first dose of Dysentery Stop, we checked in on him numerous times and he was obviously improving. After about an hour and a half (even to my surprise) he appeared from his room and was in a much-improved condition. Although he was still very weak, he was able to attend and significantly contribute to the rest of meetings that day.
It quickly became obvious to everyone that his health continued to improve with each passing hour. After 24 hours, Thomas was completely asymptomatic and nearly had his normal energy level back. Thomas was overwhelmed as to how fast he had improved using Dysentery Stop. He spent a considerable amount of time studying the Dysentery Stop bottle (although he was unable to read the labels written in English) and asking questions (interpreted through Patrick) as to how this ‘miracle medicine’ as he called it, worked. He said that in the past, he had contracted dysentery on numerous occasions but he had never had anything anywhere near that severe as this case. He said again that before being administered the Dysentery Stop he was sure that he was going to die because he has seen many friends and others with the same dysentery symptoms die very suddenly. I am sure that Thomas would have died from dysentery if it had not been for Dysentery Stop.”
For over 17 years, Dysentery Stop has proven time after time to truly be, as Thomas called it, the “miracle medicine” for dysentery.
