A Parasite Cleanse can Help Alleviate Many Health Problems
A wide variety of health problems could be easily helped with a simple parasite cleanse. It’s estimated that 50% of the U.S. population is infected with at least 1 parasite but only 25% have active infections that are showing symptoms.
Human parasites are organisms that live inside us and by definition cannot exist without us. They depend on us for their food because they can’t make their own. They are harmful because they eat our food and nutrients, destroy our tissues and cells and produce waste that can make us seriously ill or even kill us.
There are 2 types of parasites: microscopic protozoa and larger worms such as pin worms or tape worms and flukes. The smaller parasites are usually spread to humans through the air, food, water we share or through our animals and contact with other infected humans. The worms are usually spread to us via consumption of contaminated meat.
You can also get parasites through insect bites, contact with animal feces, walking barefoot or handling contaminated food or meat.
Common Problems from Parasites
Parasite infestation is considered a “silent epidemic” by many experts because it is sometimes difficult to diagnose as the symptoms are varied and can mimic other problems.
The following symptoms though, may indicate parasitic infection.
- Chronic diarrhea possibly alternating with constipation
- Nausea, vomiting
- Fatigue, anemia, weakness
- Bloating, indigestion, fowl-smelling gas
- Intestinal cramps
- Loss of or changes in appetite
- Muscle pain
Other symptoms include but are not limited to teeth grinding, acne, skin rashes, bad taste in mouth, bad breath, asthma, heartburn or chest pain, itching around nose, ears and anus especially at night, epilepsy, depression, impaired concentration, faulty memory, shortness of breath. Parasites can settle in your muscles and internal organs and even cause heart disease and cancer.
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms you can do a simple parasite cleanse. It entails eating some anti-parasitic food, taking some products that kill the parasites and their eggs and taking some precautions to make sure you don't suffer a re-infestation.
Foods to Include During Parasite Cleanse
There are a number of foods you could add to your diet that have anti-parasitic properties
- carrot tops
- papaya and papaya seeds
- pomegranates and pomegranate juice
- pumpkin seeds
How to Remove Parasites
Start by increasing your fiber intake. Fiber will aid your body in eliminating the parasites quickly and easily when they begin to die off.
Chewing pumpkin seeds is very effective in ridding the body of worms.
The best way to eliminate parasites is to use a product specifically geared for parasite cleansing.
Three very popular herbs that are used to kill parasites are black walnut hulls, cloves and wormwood. You can buy those separately, or buy a cleanse that combines the three.
The first cleanse usually destroys the adult parasites and some of their eggs. Since all of them are not eliminated immediately it's a good idea to repeat the cleanse a few times.
When you embark on a parasite cleanse the parasites that are being destroyed emit toxins that can make you feel very ill. This is called a "die-off" reaction.
Healthforce Nutritionals is an excellent company that I highly recommend. Their formula called "Scram!" not only has parasite cleansing herbs but it goes a step further by including Milk Thistle Seed Extract and Wasabi Extract. They support the liver to help control "die-off" reactions so that your cleanse is more comfortable.

How to Prevent Parasites
Once you go through your parasite cleanse, you should take steps to prevent a re-infestation.
Common sense recommendations include washing your hands after you’ve handled raw meat, after you’ve gone to the bathroom and before you eat. Also, don’t eat raw or undercooked meat.
Here are some other tips:
Wear gloves when gardening or working with soil or sand because soil can be contaminated with eggs or cysts of parasites.
Don’t handle cat litter if you’re pregnant and if you’re not pregnant, wash your hands after changing or cleaning cat litter.
Have your vet check your pets for worms. Don’t let your pets lick or kiss your face if they’re not regularly de-wormed. Protect your children from this risk as well. Use separate feeding dishes for your pets - never your own.
Soak produce in either a solution of apple cider vinegar or hydrogen peroxide 3% and water.
Ether use 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to 1 gallon of pure water. A sink full of water would need about 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar. Soak for 15 minutes and then rinse. Or you can use 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide 3% - it's very effective in removing pesticides as well as destroying parasites. You can use regular hydrogen peroxide found at your local drug store. Again, a sink full would need approximately 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide. Soak for 15 minutes and rinse.
Soak meat, poultry and fish After rinsing in water soak in same solution as above.
Avoid raw fish. Sushi
Avoid refined sugar,soft drinks and high sugar juices. Parasites and worms love sweets
Do not drink from rivers, streams or creeks. Even if they look clean they may be filled with parasitic spores.
Avoid salad bars They may contain produce not properly washed.
Keep a healthy colon. Eat a good diet filled with fruits and vegetables and include lots of good fiber to avoid constipation. A compromised colon provides a breeding ground for parasitic infection.
Use mild bleach solution to clean cooking utensils, cutting boards (especially if they are made of wood where bacteria can be easily trapped), or surfaces that have come in contact with uncooked foods.
Use unrefined natural salt in cooking Himalayan salt is a good choice. Salt has an antiseptic effect on body tissues.
Avoid salad bars when eating out. Order only well cooked food.
Avoid Parasites When Traveling
If you are traveling to a foreign country it's important to check to see if the tap water is safe. It can contain parasites and bacteria.
You can bring a portable water filter or buy reliable bottled water. Also, if buying water from a vendor in the streets, make sure that the cap is still attached to its ring.
Only drink tea or coffee that is made with boiled, purified, or bottled water.
Beware of homemade fruit juices made locally; they could also contain unsafe water.
Brush your teeth with bottled water.
When showering make sure you don't swallow the water.
Don't swim in lakes or rivers that are known to contaminated with parasites or bacteria.
Fruits and vegetables should be either cooked or peeled.
Don't eat raw salads.
Avoid foods that include raw, pickles, smoked or dried fish, crabs and crayfish.
All meat or fish dishes should be thoroughly cooked.
Take bentonite a clay-like liquid. You can find it in most health foods stores. Dosage: One tablespoon in the morning and one tablespoon in the eve ing. It absorbs poisons in the intestinal tract and flushes them outof the system.
