Acetylcholine & Parasites

Acetylcholine is the main neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic nervous system.  It increases gut motility, slows the heart rate, relaxes blood vessels, and aids in many brain functions like memory and learning.


Parasites have the ability to break down acetylcholine and use it as food because they are dependent on this neurotransmitter for nourishment. This prevents stimulation of the immune system to get rid of them.  It also slows down the bowels so parasites are less likely to get pushed out.  It makes it easier for parasites to build up biofilms.When acetylcholine is inhibited, blood becomes thinner which makes it easier for blood-feeding parasites to sustain themselves.


Symptoms of low acetylcholine include brain fog, increased inflammation especially in the gut, less REM sleep, muscle weakness, feeling drained or moody, learning and memory issues.
