I read an article about this, and it was written there in 6 weeks to heal. You mean to recover here is it gone? Or just not active?

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by the parasitic infection of Toxoplasma gondii. A person can get infected with this parasite in several ways:

eating parasitically contaminated meat and not cooked until cooked
eating food with parasitic contaminated hands after handling meat containing parasites
eating contaminated food when prepared with tools used to cut meat containing parasites (for example cutting fruit with cutting boards or knives that have been used to cut raw meat that is not washed properly)
drinking water contaminated with animal feces containing parasites
not washing hands properly after touching / cleaning the faeces of parasitically contaminated animals
transmission from pregnant women to their babies
in more rare cases, the parasite can also be transmitted through donated organs

In people with a good immune system, toxoplasma infection does not cause any symptoms or will only cause mild symptoms. But if a person who has a bad immune system suffers from this parasitic infection, then this disease can cause severe and dangerous symptoms that can cause death. In healthy people generally the symptoms will disappear within a few weeks, if there is enlarged lymph nodes, then this lymph node may just disappear after a few months, but generally infections in healthy people do not require any therapy. What is meant by recovering from toxoplasmosis infection is recovering from the symptoms of toxoplasmosis. Parasites themselves can live in the human body in the form of cysts for a lifetime. This cyst is an inactive or dormant form of the parasitic toxoplasma, and nothing can be done to remove this cyst (the body's immune system cannot eliminate the cyst, nor can drugs given from outside). If there is a decrease in the body's immune system, these cysts can be activated and become a disease again.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
