but the problem is that the only available copper for giving patientshas been in the form of salts such as copper sulfate. These salts arepoorly absorbed in the intestine and commonly cause severe nau-sea and vomiting. They are therefore not acceptable in the majorityof patients. Copper Aspirinate however causes the fewest problemsand is quite effective in most patients.
A new method of getting pure copper into the body has re- cently been developed which appears to be quite effective in kill-ing the Amoebae. This form of copper is much more active thanmost available salts and since the amount of copper that is effectiveis only 3-4 times the body’s minimum daily requirements of cop-per, it is totally safe. It is quite effective and easily taken althoughit causes a Herxheimer reaction in those patients who are infectedwith the Amoebae. It is taken by placing very tiny granules or beadscoated with copper under the tongue for about one minute. Thecopper is absorbed directly into the blood stream (in the same waynitroglycerine for heart patients does) leaving the tiny uncoatedresin granules which can be swallowed or spit out. The Herxheimerreaction usually begins in about four to eight hours, but it has beenobserved in as little as 10 minutes and as delayed as 3 days, de-pending on how severely infected with the Amoebae the patient is.
The granules are taken twice daily and are taken until the patient
