Did you know that intestinal parasites and worms can be responsible for a wide range of irritating and chronic health problems? Symptoms of parasites can include stomach cramps, diarrhea, fatigue, rapid weight loss, loss of appetite, bloating, and nausea. Unfortunately, many people suffer from the effects of parasites for lengthy periods without realising that the actual cause is these harmful organisms. Parasites can manifest in the gut when the microbiome terrain gets out of balance, and they are more common than you might think.

Parasites live on or in other organisms from which they obtain nutrients, causing harm. They require a ‘host’ to complete their life cycle. These nasty critters can vary in size from microscopic up to a hundred feet long in the case of certain tapeworms, and they can be found almost everywhere in our environment, including in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.

The most common parasite sources are contaminated water, undercooked meats and raw fish, and infected animals. A perfect environment for parasites to thrive within the body is when the bowels become ineffective at eliminating waste due to blockages in the intestinal tract caused by overeating the wrong foods over time. Eating meat regularly, including chicken, pork or fish, can also attract parasites.

Parasites can cause various symptoms, including anemia, asthma, constipation, decreased immunity, diarrhea, digestive disorders, fatigue, itchy anus, nervousness, and skin rash. Four common intestinal parasites (mainly worms) are worth being aware of, including tapeworms, hookworms, flukes, and threadworms.

To reduce the risk of getting parasitic infections, it is recommended to source organic, locally grown, fresh produce where possible, avoid or limit meat and fish in your diet, keep your living environment clean, avoid antibiotics, and avoid drinking municipal tap water.

Natural remedies for getting rid of parasites include:

  • water fast (10-14 days)

  • wormwood tea,

  • black walnut oil,

  • clove essential oil,

  • diatomaceous earth,

  • raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar,

  • and probiotics.

You probably realise intestinal parasites and worms form in the gut when excess waste and digestive plaque accumulate. To eliminate parasites from your body, starve the parasites and clear the terrain. A great way of doing this is to do prolonged water fasting. It’s the most intense way, but it might be your best solution. Parasites do not like it, and you starve them to death. All other above-mentioned remedies can be of great help, too, and you might want to try these first. You are eating a clean diet with fresh, locally sourced whole foods, drinking enough structured water, moving your body daily, and limiting your raw meats and fish consumption.
