What are parasites?
Parasites are organisms that can be found living in or outside the body. When parasites find their way into the body they feed off our cells leaving the host deprived of vital nutrients. Parasites are not limited to only the intestines. They can spread around the body via the blood stream until they find a space to grow and mature. Not all parasites are present as worms in the stool. Some types present themselves as microscopic amoeba, which are not visible to the naked eye.
How Can I Develop a Parasite Infection?
Parasites are typically spread through contact with contaminated feces. Individuals with a weakened immune system are more susceptible to developing an infection. Most commonly, these pests are transmitted through food, water and soil, but there are numerous other scenarios that can increase your risk:
- Consumption of undercooked meat
- Consumption of raw fish
- Environmental pollution
- Excessive antibiotic use
- Exotic foods
- Improperly washed meats and produce
- International travel
- Poor sanitation
- Poor hygiene
Symptoms of Parasite Infection:
- Abdominal pain
- Depression, restlessness or anxiety
- Fast Heartbeat
- Heart Pain
- Irritated skin
- Itchy nose, ears, anus
- Joint or muscle pain
- Low energy, sleeping problems
- Yeast Infection
What is the Screening Procedure?
Studies performed in both North America and Europe have provided evidence that anyone suffering from a chronic condition related to the symptoms stated above most likely has parasites. There are two main ways to physically test for an infection. Typically, Stool Testing and Bio Meridian Screening are most commonly used although there are some difficulties associated with stool sampling. Doctors rarely use stool sample tests because parasite-based conditions often have overlapping symptoms with diseases medical professionals are more familiar with. Another limitation is that there are very few labs in North America of which have the capability to test for parasites.
Bio Meridian Screening uses non-invasive techniques to locate and screen the 20 energy meridian pairs of the body and is approved by the FDA for accuracy. One of the major benefits of this technology is that it has the ability to evaluate aspects of health that often remain undiagnosed by health professionals. Because people tend to be very unaware of the fact that the prevalence of these organisms are rapidly increasing in North America, it is recommended to screen yourself routinely. The earlier parasites are detected the better chance of saving yourself from their harmful side effects.
How Can I Safely treat the Infection?
1. Colon Cleansing
In addition to a parasite cleanse, it is very beneficial to add Colonics as part of your treatment process. Partaking in Colonics while on the parasite cleanse will help to free the colon toxic matter and increase the rate at which the parasites are eliminated. While doing a supplement cleanse sounds great, if your colon is backed-up there is little room for the parasites to be eliminated leaving them to only recirculate through the body. Once these parasites recirculate they have a tendency to latch onto a variety of different organs causing even more harm to the body. For best results, it is recommended to complete a full series of 10-12 sessions. The first 4 sessions should be completed in a two-week period continuing with weekly sessions until your symptoms have cleared.
While completing a parasite cleanse it is extremely crucial to keep a healthy diet just as when doing any other type of cleanse or detox. Your diet should consist of foods as close to their natural state as possible. Be sure to avoid any refined sugars and processed goods. Include these anti-parasitic foods for best results: onion, garlic, raw unsalted pumpkin seeds, raw beets, carrots, figs, papaya seeds, pomegranates and cranberry juice.
3. Herbal Supplements
Black walnut, wormwood and cloves are of the most powerful anti-parasitic herbs traditionally used to kill and eliminate parasite infections. Combining these sources with other anti-parasitic herbs helps to increase the ability to eliminate a variety of parasite types in the body. An herbal supplement cleanse should be performed for a minimum of 30 days as parasites are most active during a full moon. Some may need to continue with the cleanse for 2-3 months or longer depending on the severity of ones condition.
These herbs do not interact with other medications and are safe to use while breastfeeding. There are no major side effects, although a “healing crisis” effect is not uncommon. A healing crisis can be experienced during any type of cleanse, but is especially common during parasite cleansing. This is a result of the herbs working to remove the toxic parasites from body organs and tissues. Popular symptoms include: nausea, diahrrea, headaches and abdominal cramping. Typically the crisis only lasts 3-7 days. To help reduce your chance of experiencing a healing crisis be sure to increase your water intake and reduce your supplement dosage as needed.
