Parasite is a hidden plague that can cause weight gain, increase anxiety, destroy digestion and fuel sugar carvings. Over 25 years ago, Peter Weina, PhD, FACP, the Chief of Pathobiology at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, said, “We have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the United States—it’s just not being identified.”
Could unsuspected parasites be holding your health hostage?
If you suffer with an inflexible sweet tooth, fatigue, or any of the following symptoms, unseen symptoms might be the underlying cause:
- Anxiety, nervousness and depression
- Frequent infections including yeast infections and colds
- Intestinal issues like intermittent constipation, diarrhoea, bloating and gas
- Joint or muscle pain
- Difficulty sleeping or night-time teeth grinding
- Dark circles around or under the eyes
- Acne, eczema, hives, rashes or other skin conditions
- Sensory disorders such as vertigo, brain fog or poor coordination
Most people believe these symptoms as a third-world concern. But, a study in ‘The American Journal of Tropical Medicine’ and Hygiene’ say that neatly 32% of a nationally representative sample of 2,896 people found positive for parasitic infections, and at least 48 states have found measurable outbreaks.
Improperly washed fruits and vegetables, undercooked/raw or micro waved fish, meat and poultry, polluted soil and water and inadequate hygiene are the major reasons for the spread of parasites.
They can create many health problems and are responsible for an enormous view. Parasites consume our food and nutrients, produce toxic wastes in our body and even destroy our tissues and cells.
A parasite which is the most immunosuppressive agent in the human body produces in dole catabolises that makes our organs such as kidneys and liver to work overtime to excrete. In addition, it makes our body to emit substances called cytokines that generate a variety of immune responses.
These high levels of cytokines have been linked to increased incidences like violet suicide attempts as well as depression. However, Cytokines pass through the blood-brain barrier and can create negative impact neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin in the brain.
HERE ARE THE WARNING SIGNS:
Food items that are high in simple Carbs such as sugar, white flour, and milk can improve parasites and even natural sweets such as honey, rice, syrup, fruit juice will provide instant nourishment for your internal hitchhikers.
However, simple carbohydrate foods require more time to digest or pass through the alimentary system. It produces stagnation in the colon and invites environment for toxic build up.
Toxoplasmosis infection has been dramatically and significantly linked to General Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
Secondary dairy and gluten intolerance
Many parasites such as roundworm and giardia can generate secondary lactose and casein intolerance. You should avoid milk and cheese. Giardia can also create a reckless type of gluten intolerance because of the damaged intestinal villi.
Food and environmental allergies
Parasites sometimes punch the intestinal lining and can also create irritation, increasing bowel permeability to large undigested molecules, and activating the body’s immune response that causes allergic reactions.
If your body has enough parasites, you will lose enough blood that causes iron deficiency or anemia.
Some worms, because of their shape and size, can block the bile duct and intestinal tract that makes elimination difficult and infrequent.
Gas and bloating
Some parasites live in the upper small intestine, making persistent abdominal distension a frequent sign of uninvited guests.
Irritable bowel syndrome
Parasites can invoke the intestinal cell wall that leads to various GI symptoms and mal-absorption of essential nutrients.
Joint and muscle aches/pains
Some parasites can migrate and encyst in joint fluids and muscles, leading to chronic inflammation.
Parasites can cause allergic skin reactions: eczema, hives, rashes, sores.
Inability to lose or gain weight.
Overall fatigue, dark circles under the eyes, and grinding of the teeth.
READY FOR A CLEANSE?
If you witness the warning signs, it means that you need to cleanse targeted parasite.
Increase your digestive enzymes, probiotics and HCl.
Increasing your digestive enzymes, probiotics and HCI are important to process the parasite elimination.
Limit raw of all kinds, especially if you eat out
You have to eat plenty of properly cooked proteins such as like wild-caught fish, organic meat, and free range chicken and pastured eggs. These provide necessary amino acids that strengthen tissues and improve immunity.
Gently increase fibre intake
Soluble and insoluble fiber has amazing detoxification and sweeping effects on both large and small invaders.
Get the sugar out
Liquid sugar calories that produce from soda and fruit juice are worst offenders.
Eliminate cold drinks
Cold drinks cause the intestinal area to contract and act as a shock to the body. They hold waste material exactly what you don’t want during this detox period.
Avoid most dairy and gluten-based products
You should avoid most dairy and gluten based products such as yogurt and kefir.
Up the beta-carotene
According to clinical studies, all the vitamins and minerals, and vitamin A increases resistance to tissue penetration by parasitic larvae. Food items that are rich in pre-vitamin A or beta-carotene (think brightly colored orange and green veggies) should be added abundantly to the diet.
Remember that serving of organic wheat grass juice powder or capsules is a convenient way to obtain beta carotene as well as the nutritional value of three pounds of organic green veggies.
Increase your zinc along with vitamin A-rich foods. Vitamin A and zinc are two most important nutrients to add to your diet for parasite-proofing. Zinc can be found in beef, turkey, lamp, eggs, and pumpkin seeds.
Use onions, garlic, cloves, and fennel in cooking and nibble on pumpkin seeds as a snack.
These are all well-respected and time-honoured parasite controllers.
Try colonic cleansing
Colonic irrigation and home enemas play a major role in cleansing the colon of parasites. For example, Garlic enemas are especially helpful in reducing pinworms.
Take a tablespoon of fish or flax oil
Fish and flaxseed oils are especially helpful with parasites because of cellular membranes thus providing protection down to the cellular level against hidden invaders. The oils also lubricate the gastrointestinal area and serve as a carrier for fat-soluble vitamin A, creating an environment uninviting for waste, toxins, and microorganism build-up.
Sip therapeutic teas
You need to drink one or two cups of mugwort. It sounds like a formidable herb, but it was made from tea and it has been used for generations to kill intestinal parasites.
Try some anti-parasitic supplements
Try an herbal formula that consists of cranberry concentrate, grapefruit seed extract, Artemisia annua, pomegranate, peppermint, slippery elm and bromelain.
Cranberry is especially important because of its organic acids that kill parasites by breaking down their protein structure and motivate the release of parasitic waste.
Try an herbal tincture that contains black walnut, wormwood, centaury, male fern, orange peel, cloves and butternut for the large worms and flukes.
Centaury is an herb that derives from Native Americans for its capability to relax the parasites triggering release of their hooks and suckers from the intestinal tract which is especially effective the newly uncovered human rope worm.
This act as the intestinal parasite cleanses.
FOR A MORE DEFINITE DIAGNOSIS:
You have to consider an expanded GI panel that allows you to collect saliva and stool samples in the privacy.
The panel tests for the following:
- Pathogenic bacteria including H. pylori and C. difficile, Candida albicans and fungus.
- Protozoa and worms including Giardia, Blastocystis hominis, roundworm, Toxoplasma gondii, Trichinella spiralis, and Tapeworm.
- Allergies to gluten, cow’s milk, eggs and soy.
Intestinal function markers including GI immunity – SigA, pancreatic enzyme output, colon inflammation, blood in stool, and stool pH.
