The Worms Inside Your Face
Warning:The following video is really gross. Definitely NSWE (not safe while eating). But I made the mistake of watching it, and now I want to know what in the world it could be showing.

What happens is that you see a man's face getting scrubbed with a piece of cotton. And then tiny worms begin to ooze out of the man's pores.

The most sensible theory to be found in the YouTube comments (which I don't recommend reading) is that the video shows some kind of pseudo-medical treatment (for what, I can't imagine), in which worm eggs are smeared on the man's face with the cotton, and then the worms seem to emerge from the guy's skin. Sounds plausible. Any other theories?

Those who were speaking of cockroaches seem to be the most correct in this case. Watching the video there are chunks of brown and white as the person applies the substance in question. The worms are there from the start, they brush them immediately. Many are just coiled up but you see the white puss spots from the first zoom in. Don't think too hard folks.

Oh COME ONE.
"worms eggs" being wiped on the face?

Are people so adamant in rejecting that in some areas, western science is inferior to eastern practices, that they would come up with such an outlandish Idea?

FIRST - find the sort of worm eggs that can hatch immediatly when you want them to - and come forward with the evidence before you advance that sort of conjecture!

sheesh.

Ive invested a ridiculously huge amount of time and effort to discover the truth behind this video.

The real mystery however is how easily most people are deceived.

It is no secret that this is a traditional Malaysian treatment for sinusitis. Or that a squashed native burrowing cockroach is being applied at the beginning.

For anyone who has gone this far the question is whether the worms are from the patient or the cockroach.

Of course the promoters of the treatment will tell you that they are being expelled from the skin due to a reaction to a chemical within the roach. This is false for several reasons. Firstly while there are many nematode infections that humans can be infected "NONE" present with these symptoms. Secondly there are several indicators during the footage exposing the fact that they were wiped on at the beginning. In fact if you look closely there is not one point where you can say definitively that the worms are burrowing from under the skin. If you think there is simply keep watching, they will flick below the surface tension of the roach slime just as surely as they appeared to explode from under it.

Insects on the other hand, especially cockroaches, are very vulnerable to nematode infections of this type. If this video teaches us anything it's to avoid being reincarnated as a cockroach.

In simple terms this is snake oil medicine at its best. As another stated, "don't be fooled"!

This video is for real. I have been going through a parsite cleanse with Oil of Oregano, Mineral salt baths and Artiminisim (not sure if spelling it corretly - chinese herb). I haven't screamed so much in my life! It's like somthing out of a horror movie. No more meat, dairy or fish for me (heavy parasites) - going veggitarian all the way.

Regarding the post of the woman patient with worms coming out of her mouth - it is true. Why the Western medical community denies and will not treat, I have no clue - other than the cures are relatively simple and inexpensive and do not support the pharma kings. Started happening to me while doing a parasite detox cleanse, and the larva, and my mother who is being treated for Lyme disease and co-infections has them as well, in her mouth rise, coming out her nose and ears. They are also coming out of my skin. You need to see a lyme literate or naturopathic dr. MMS (Miracle Mineral Supplement) Google along with parasites, unrefined seasalt bath - take a bath and see what floats to the top! Also, oregano oil - do a fast and you will pass so many parasites that you will screem! Parasites are the cause of cancer, ms, parkinsons, brain tumors - the list goes on and on. . .

Check out the trailer to the documentary "under our skin" as well as Dr. Jemesek speaks the truth - top aids researcher who spoke out against the infectios disease board for diliberate manipulation and hiding of facts regarding Borellia bacteria. We have been duped big time by the Western Medical industry and pharmacutical companies. Parasites, fungus and co-infections - cancer, MS, parkinsons, alzhiemers. . .easily curable, yet they let people suffer with meds that don't work, refuse to acknowledge and treat. Just wait till it happens to you - probably arealdy is and you don't realize it. Any symptom you have - type in lyme - Borellia. Now after this documentary and people wising up, the FDA says there is this new super bug from India - Bullshit! It's Borellia - attaches to the DNA and passed on congenitally. Been here for thousands of years - and now resistant due to antibiotic use on our commerical beef, chickens, humans, pigs. . .

Well!

Why the worms can appear or formed in a few second?

Really human do have worms living in the skin?
It is believable if it is microorganism. But this organism is too obvious!

What type of art of devil they r using?

Why no body do such interesting research on it?

Stick to the topic, pls. Those examples do have distances for the comparison and contrast.

That's human arrogance, they think they already know everything, or can know everything ....

so we must be positive minded, we examine the evidence and research from various aspects, we define this new scam or real ....

for myself, hopefully this becomes an additional reference in my life, and hopefully this study showed evidence of continued and in fact to the world

There are no worms, this is a total scam. What they are wiping on the men's skin is the eggs of the worms which break when squished against the skin.

This is a real disease , and it is called subcutaneous Filariasis, it is from mosquito's and fly's, from a tropical warm region, that lay eggs and the worms from the eggs live under the skin , I found all this info in Wikipedia.com , if untreated can cause elaphantitus. the worms are called Filarial Nematodes and there are 8 different kinds , the one you see is the smaller baby worms.

This tape accurately shows worms emerging from the second man's face.
At 1:38 seconds his right eye comes into view. A worm is visible emerging from his tear duct UNDER THE SKIN! The eyelid is so thin, it easily shows the outline of the worm.
As you watch, you can see the left end of the worm, which seems to be exposed,as it moves in and out.
Now, at 3:00, the clinician is cleaning the face with a rag, and at one point is seen to vigorously scrub the area, but the worm wasn't dislodged.

mad

All i can say is that the solution is a Dimethylsulfoxide acting as a solvent to dissolve Mebendazole as over the counter Anthlimetic(anti worm) that rubbed on the face or added to a moisturiser several times a day (Clogged pores realy whip worm (But end of a practical joke.) ISnt corruption Benign tumour's

just watched the video a while ago with my college's, what was those chemical or extract solution that can trigger those worms to come out, But with my college's they usual's using a extract that cleanse their face, but now that we saw this video they are asking what are those extract.?

NO ONE IS EXPLAINING HOW THE WORMS/PARASITES GROW SO FAST ON THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN - IF IN FACT IT IS FROM THE ROACH....

EXPLAIN HOW THEY GROW THAT FAST

HOW DO THE WORMS INSTANTANEOUSLY APPEAR

IF THEY ARE SMUSHED ROACH EGGS THAT HATCH ... HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THEY GROW THAT FAST???

WHAT ARE THEY EATTING ON THE SURFACE TO GROW THAT FAST


FROM LIQUID TO SOLID WORM... EXPLAIN HOW THAT WOPRKS PLEASE..

IF MY QUESTION SEEMS CONDESDENDING, THATS BECAUSE IT IS.. UNLESS YOU HAVE A REAL ANSWER THAT EXPLAINS THESE POINTS.

OTHER THAN THAT SHUT UP..

BY THE WAY.. EGGS ARE MADE TO HATCH THEN GROW.. IF YOU BREAK AN EGG BEFORE IT WAS READY TO HATCH HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR IT TO GROW?
