Uninvited Guests: The Truth about Parasites
- Around 50% of people in the Western world are likely to suffer from some form of parasitic infestation during their lifetime, and parasites could have a part to play in most common illnesses.
- Bacteria, parasites, and fungi build up in our bodies because we generate the perfect environment for them through gut flora imbalances, exposure to certain foods, medications, and chemicals.
- The three types of parasites human beings are susceptible to are: Protozoa, Ectoparasites, and Helminths.
- One of the most dangerous sources of parasitic infestations is pork – as pigs are carriers of huge amounts of toxins and bacteria. Parasitic infections can also be worsened by frequent exposure to natural sugars such as glucose, fructose, and grains.
- The common symptoms of parasitic infection can range from wrinkles above your lips, to severe allergies, fatigue, brain fog, and poor sleeping habits.
- Some people, such as those with digestive problems, cancer, malnutrition, and leaky gut syndrome are more prone to parasitic infestation.
- Dietary treatments are often the first option for fighting back against parasitic infestation. This means removing pork, grains, sugars, alcohol, and processed foods from your diet, and introducing vitamin C, garlic, coconut oil, and diatomaceous earth.
- Dr. Hulda Clark recommends a combination of herbal solutions that have been frequently proven to work in fighting back against parasites. This herbal concoction includes wormwood, black walnut, and common cloves.
- Other treatment options might include ozone therapy, and infrared saunas which work to kill off the initial infection.
Could You be Host to a Parasitic Infestation?
Most people fail to entertain the idea that they might be playing host to several different types of parasites. However, the truth is that experts believe more than 50% of people across the Western world will suffer from some parasitic infestation during their lifetime. In fact, some researchers believe that parasites could have a part to play in almost every common illness.
As uncomfortable as it may be to think about – the human body is crawling with hundreds of strains of bacteria and yeast. The average digestive tract holds more than three pounds of bacteria. When properly balanced, these bacteria are helpful for aiding nutrient absorption and proper digestion. For instance, probiotics are a form of bacteria that can have a significant positive impact on health. Unfortunately, when these bacteria begin to fall out of balance, problems start. Many different sources can disrupt the balance of our internal bacteria, from medication and diet, to contact with infected sources.
In most cases, parasites like worms, fungi, and viruses enter our bodies because we cultivate a perfect environment for them. With compromised immune systems thanks to antibiotics, disrupted internal flora, exposure to junk food and various chemicals, we welcome parasites in. All of that makes our bodies the ideal home for a parasite infestations.
What are the Different Types of Parasite?
Parasitic infections come in many different shapes and sizes. While some are asymptomatic, others cause significant discomfort, and some can even be deadly. For instance, Malaria is one of the most well-known parasites in the world, responsible for around one million deaths per year. At the same time, neglected tropical diseases such as Onchocerciasis, Filariasis, and Guinea Worm kill about 500,000 people per year. Even in highly developed civilizations, parasites can promote digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome, and may even lead to cancer.
Parasites can range all the way from microscopic organisms that enter the body through drink, food, contact with animals, or infected people, to huge tape worms and other issues. Though parasites are often acquired from consuming contaminated water or food, people with leaky gut syndrome, imbalanced gut flora, and weakened immune systems can be far more susceptible. What’s more, parasites can live within the human body for years.
Parasites get their food by consuming nutrients at the expense of their host. Worse, parasites can lead to the onset of disease in humans. There are three types of known parasite that are capable of feasting on humans:
- Protozoa – Single cell organisms that multiply and live within the tissue or blood of humans. These creatures infect the body through flies and mosquitos, and can be found in both water and soil.
- Ectoparasites – Fleas, ticks, mite, lice, and other organisms that live on the surface of their human host and burrow or attach to the skin.
- Helminths – Parasitic flukes, flatworms, tapeworms, and various other form of worm. These parasites live within the gastrointestinal tract, lymphatic system, blood, and various other tissues in the human body.
How Do We Get Parasites?
If you’re feeling concerned about the presence of these uninvited guests, then the chances are you’ll want to know what to avoid to reduce your risk of falling victim to them. The truth is that parasites can be obtained from several different sources, however visiting parts of the world where clean water is not largely available, or eating pork can be some of the most common causes of infestation. Pigs are a particularly potent source of parasites, because they eat everything they can find on a farm. Since pigs don’t have sweat glands which can remove toxins from their body, all the bad substances that the pig consumes remains within the pork when we eat it. It’s no wonder that there are so many warnings around about the dangers of undercooking pork. Unfortunately, while cooking can eliminate some of the toxins and parasites in pork – many are too strong to be killed by heat alone.
Pigs are the primary carriers of various viruses and parasites, including:
- Menangle Virus
- Nipah Virus
- PRRS (Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome)
- Hepatitis E Virus
- Taenia Solium Tapeworm
- Trichinellosisor Trichinosis
Of course, pork isn’t the only dangerous substance out there – nor is it the only source of parasitic infection. In fact, parasites and yeast can enter the human body through a variety of different means – often depending on the time of infection. For instance, Candida Albicanis – the most difficult to remove form of yeast, and one of the most common – occurs naturally within the body in small amounts. When a person eats a large amount of fructose and glucose, the normally occurring yeasts and parasites in the body are fed and allowed to multiply. On top of that, various pharmaceuticals and birth control pills can deplete beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract, leading to overgrowth, infestation, and imbalance.
In many cases parasites can become so deeply ingrained within the human body that the treatment process is quite complex. For instance, treating parasites and yeasts often involves not only killing the invaders, but also flushing the toxins they have created from the body and supporting the body in regenerating good bacteria, and healing itself.
Symptoms – How to Tell If You Have Parasites
Before the treatment process can begin, you’ll need to identify the presence of parasites within your body. There are a huge number of symptoms that can be directly and indirectly associated with parasite infestation, and if you have several of them, the chances are that you’re suffering from some form of overgrowth. In some cases, symptoms can be difficult to pinpoint because of parasitic infestation – for instance, food allergies (particularly from dairy) can be a common result of parasite issues. At the same time, skin acne issues can occur because of the presence of parasites, and if you have wrinkles above your lips – this could be a sign that you have parasites in your large intestine. In some cases, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO can be caused by parasites, and leaky gut can also be a side effect of infestation.
Some of the other common symptoms of parasites and parasite overgrowth include:
- Ongoing fatigue
- Frequent yeast infections
- Lowered immune system and consistent illness
- Sores on the lips or mouth, or white spots within the mouth
- Poor sleeping habits
- Fungus around the feet, or athletes foot
- Gas and bloating
- Significant allergies
- Sensitivity to chemicals or certain foods
- Rashes or itching around the genitals
- Food cravings – particularly for starchy or sweet foods
- Intestinal cramps
- Eczema or Psoriasis
- Brain fog or mental fuzziness
- Depression or anxiety
- Menstrual irregularities in women
- Joint or muscle pains
- Spots in the eyes
- Diarrhea or constipation
Some people are naturally more prone to yeast overgrowth and parasitic infestation than others. In most cases, the reason for this is that these individuals are already suffering with ongoing chronic diseases. Yeast and parasites are frequently found in people with:
- Malnutrition issues
- Leaky gut syndrome
- Kidney stones
- Chronic fatigue
- Crohn’s disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Digestive problems
Treatment Options for Parasite Infestations
The good news for people who believe they may be suffering from parasites and parasitic infections, is that there are certain natural treatments that can be effective at assisting the body with removing yeast and killing parasites. One of the most commonly addressed solutions – involves making alterations to your current diet.
If you currently have parasitic problems, then it’s important to remember that any of the sugars that you consume which can feed your infestation may make the condition even worse. If your aim is to engage in a natural form of treatment to remove parasites, then you’ll need to start by removing all sources of natural sugar from your diet. This means that you’ll need to avoid all grains too! In most cases, experts suggest that you should avoid eating fruit during a parasitic removal, because fruits naturally contain huge amounts of sugar. In some cases, it’s also worth avoiding dairy for a couple of weeks too.
Some of the best foods that you can eat during a dietary change for parasitic infection are pumpkin seeds. Eating one cup a day will help to fight off the infestation. At the same time, remember to avoid these substances:
- Pork – This meat is highly contaminated with parasites, as we discussed above.
- All grains – many wheats and other grains containing gluten can break down into sugars quickly – leading to intestinal inflammation.
- Alcohol – this substance does not allow for the proper functioning of the immune system.
- Processed foods – foods that are significantly processed have no benefit to immune health, and often contain lots of sugars.
- Sugar – sugar feeds parasites and reduces your immune system functions.
When it comes to using substances that might help to boost your abilities in the fight against parasitic infestations, some useful products to consider might include:
- Diatomaceous Earth – This naturally occurring substance is great at killing parasites, parasite eggs, and yeast. It can also help to improve digestion and restore body tissue.
- Apple cider vinegar – High in B-vitamins, apple cider vinegar is particularly nourishing to the body and helps to neutralize the internal pH condition – great for improving digestion.
- Vitamin C – Besides being great for immune support and antioxidant function, Vitamin C is ideal for parasite removal. If you have some of the symptoms mentioned above, take around 5,000mg per day.
- Coconut oil – A natural anti-fungal, and naturally nourishing to the body, Coconut oil can be taken several times a day as a form of parasitic removal support.
- Cinnamon – A natural remedy for fungus and parasites, cinnamon can be ideal in an infestation.
- Garlic – many experts recommend using garlic to help remove parasites and yeast. To use this substance, simply mince two cloves and drink them with a cup of water before meals.
A Herbal Solution to Parasitic Infection
Dr. Hulda Clark was one of the first people to popularize parasite killing. She made it clear that getting rid of all the parasites within the body would be impossible using clinical medications that can only work to kill one or two parasites each – while making you quite unwell at the same time. Dr. Clark found that though several herbs have parasite-killing properties, three primary herbs can rid the human body of over a hundred different forms of infection – without negative side effects.
When it comes to finding herbal and supplemental options to fight back against parasitic infection, wormwood is one of the most commonly cited solutions. Across the world, wormwood has been used for decades to eliminate unwanted visitors in the human body – particularly pinworm (the most common worm infection in the US), and roundworm. Pinworms can cause severe itching around the anal area, while roundworms cause shortness of breath, coughing, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, blood in the stool, and weight loss.
In many natural remedies or cleanse solutions against parasitic infections, including Dr. Hulda Clark’s cleanse, wormwood is used alongside clove and black walnut to kill off the parasite. What’s more, wormwood is also beneficial for a range of other reasons too. For instance, it’s the primary ingredient of the herbal drug, artemisinin – the most powerful antimalarial on the market. On top of that, research has shown that wormwood can kill cancer cells, treat anorexia, insomnia, stomach ache, jaundice, flatulence, and indigestion. Wormwood can even be used to remove some of the symptoms commonly associated with Crohn’s disease, and help in fighting back against SIBO.
Other herbs that have been found to support parasitic removal include:
- Grapefruit seed extract
- Olive leaf extract
- Oregano oil
- Uva ursi leaf
- Black walnut
- Clove oil
Other Treatment Options
Besides dietary and herbal solutions, there are some more direct treatments available for people who suffer from parasitic overgrowth or infection. For instance, infrared saunas can be ideal for killing parasites. These procedures work by raising the body temperature to assist the body in killing off unwanted bacteria, fungi, yeast, parasites, and sometimes even cancerous tumors.
Another option is ozone therapy – one of the most versatile treatments available today, as it can be applied through medical treatments and home-based solutions. Ozone treatment can be administered through the skin into various organs throughout the body, including the intestines. What’s more, it can be used in the blood, through the ears, on gums, teeth, and more. Ever since its first introduction into the medical world, Ozone has been proven to act as a powerful tool against various conditions and afflictions.
Many people find that the best solution to ridding themselves of parasites, and maintaining a healthy body thereafter, is to engage in several treatment options. As mentioned above, simply killing the parasite isn’t always enough – you’ll also need to make changes to avoid falling victim to similar problems in the future, and ridding your body of unwanted toxins.
Finding your ideal treatment will be a process that’s unique to you and your needs, but it’s important to remember that there are plenty of natural solutions to help you fight back against parasitic infestation.
Please note also that depending on the infestation of parasites within the body, it can sometimes take up to a year to clear them all out. Less severe cases will be shorter than that.
