Parasites Overview

Parasite infection can mimic many other conditions, making it difficult to diagnose. Symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating and recurring foul smelling gas, constipation, diarrhea, intense sugar and carb cravings, vaginitis, jaundice, nausea, swollen lymph glands, skin ulcers, lung congestion, itching, insomnia, depression, mood swings, irritability, chronic fatigue, and unexplained weight loss or weight gain.

Causes of Parasites

Most people are unaware they have parasites or intestinal worms as the symptoms may come and go. Parasites have life cycles that generally follow the pattern of the full moon, with symptoms often times worsening around this period as this when parasites are most active. It is commonly believed that parasite are usually picked up in foreign countries and through bad hygiene habits, however this a common misperception. Parasites can be acquired virtually anywhere, and most people do not realize that it is the state of your immunity that determines whether or not you acquire a parasite infection. If you have a "leaky gut," or already have an imbalance of gut bacteria, you likely have parasites. A compromised immunity almost always means you have some sort of worm or parasite present.

Good Diets For Those Diagnosed With Parasites

While there are certain laboratory tests that can test for certain strains of parasites through a stool culture, these are often unreliable and only test for certain kinds. Many people who test negative are often infected anyways, but it does not show up because parasites have dormant and active life cycles. If you already suffer from digestive disturbances, sleep or mood disorders, depression, or candida overgrowth, parasite infestation almost always accompanies these conditions. The best way to get rid of parasites is to restore gut health and optimize your immunity by ensuring a strong, healthy gut. This is done through eliminating foods that feed parasites (sugar, processed foods, artificial foods, gluten and grains, antibiotic and hormone laden foods, raw meats and seafood,) and by eating a diet rich in whole foods and nutrients your body requires to be healthy. Adding in natural anti parasitic remedies is always a good idea. Some common anti parasite foods are garlic, onion, coconut oil, pumpkin seeds, acai berry, and fresh ground cloves. It is also important to partake in regular colon cleansing, through either hydrotherapy or fresh organic juice cleanses. This will greatly assist in flushing parasites from your digestive tract, as they are hard to get rid of and thrive in a stagnant environment, clinging to compacted waste on the colon walls. In addition, adding strong, therapeutic strength probiotics and fermented foods at a separate time from your anti parasitic protocols is an important aspect of eliminating parasites. Parasites will always come back if you do not restore the proper balance of gut bacteria by establishing a healthy population of beneficial microbes, as probiotics are responsible for modulating organisms within your body.
