Parasites in humans are more common than you think. Although it is quite normal for most humans to have some parasites in their bodies, over 50% of people in developed countries have parasite problems that get out of control, causing chronic parasitic infections.

Dr Hulda Clark (1928-2009), a Canadian naturopath, who wrote the book “Cure For All Diseases” said that no matter what your health symptoms are, they are caused only by TWO things:

  • Parasites—which can be removed by electronic and herbal treatment
  • Pollution (or toxins)—which can be avoided

Dr Hulda recognized that cleansing the body of parasites always had a profound effect on restoring health successfully.

What Are Parasites In Humans?

Parasites are unwanted organism that live in the gastrointestinal system that has the potential to cause damage to their human host. Parasites get their nutrients from the foods we eat and they puncture holes in the intestinal membrane.

Parasites can range from tiny amoeba that are not visible to your naked eyes, up to 35-foot long tapeworms! They lay eggs in the body and given the right environment, each one can lay hundreds of thousands or millions of eggs daily!!

Their eggs can enter into blood circulation, travel to various organs in the body and cause diseases. Chronic parasitic infections are linked with intestinal permeability, leaky gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome and many other digestive disorders. If you have any digestive disorders, parasites are most likely the cause.

What Are The Types Of Parasites That Inhabit The Human Body?

There are hundreds of known parasites that inhabit the human body. They are classified into two main groups of parasites that can cause diseases: protozoa and helminths.

Protozoa are single-celled microorganisms that may not be visible to the naked eye. The most common protozoans that infect a human body are: Giardia intestinalis, entaboeba hystolytica, cyclospora cayetanenensis, cryptosporidium spp, and blastocystis hominis. The disorders caused by these parasites are often named after them.

Helminths are larger and typically big enough and can be seen with the human eye in their adult stage. The most common helminths that inhabit the human gut, briefly, are:

  • Roundworms: This parasite can lay up to over 200,000 eggs a day and can grow up to 15 feet long. Because of their size, this type of parasite can cause blockages in the intestinal tract, penetrate the intestinal wall, cause hemorrhages, appendicitis, peritonitis, abscesses in the liver and pancreatitis.
  • Hookworms: The larvae of this parasite can penetrate the skin. Young worms can burrow through intestinal wall and feed on your blood, causing iron deficiency and other nutrient deficiencies. Adult hookworms can sap the host’s strength and energy and destroy their overall wellbeing.
  • Tapeworms: This parasite can grow up to 35 feet long and live more than 10 years inside a person’s intestines. They can lay up to one million eggs per day!
  • Pinworms: A female pinworm often crawls out of the anus and lays about 15,000 eggs a day. The eggs can survive outside the body and once airborne, they can survive for about two days in its surrounding. Hosts may often experience itchiness in the anus or vagina, suffer from digestive disorders, insomnia and irritability.
  • Whipworms: This 1-2 inches long worm can penetrate the intestinal wall and cause bacterial infections, blood in stools, pain in lower abdomen, rectal prolapse, anemia and hemorrhages.
  • Flatworms: Flatworms (a.k.a. fluke) can grow up to 3 inches long. They deplete nutrients from an organ, and then move on to other organs in the body via the blood stream and lymphatic system. They can cause severe diseases in the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, bladder, liver and the blood.

What Are The Causes Of Parasite Infections?

Parasites can enter your body through contaminated food and water: From eating uncooked or undercooked meat (stop eating sashimi!), contaminated fruits and vegetables, from unclean washroom habits, dirty toilets, handling animals, from swimming or even through the bottom of your feet!

But, the condition is only made worse if you also have an unhealthy diet lifestyle. A weakened immune system caused by a poor eating habit weakens the immune system to a state where it attracts a parasitic infection. A weakened body is a breeding ground for parasites and other microorganisms and they thrive in it!

Poor eating habits, a stressful lifestyle, being on long-term medications all contribute to poor gut health and immune system. With chronic constipation and irregular bowel movements, undigested foods in the digestive tract remains longer than it should, staying stagnant and they ferment.

Fermentation produces sugars that feed yeasts and parasites and further weakens gut health and immune system. As the food rots, it also produces gas that causes bloating and flatulence. This, is the perfect environment for parasites to breed and multiply, and soon cause an infestation … just as rats and various pests live off city landfills and industrial-waste sites.

Signs That You May Have A Parasite Infection

These organisms can cause HUGE problems when left untreated. People commonly think that parasites only exist in underdeveloped countries. This is far from the truth, and the reason why people often don’t pay attention to their symptoms, nor associate their problems with parasite infections!

Although some people may have parasites in the body and have no sign of their presence, parasites that grow out of control may cause some persistent issues such as:

  • Chronic digestive issues despite eating a healthy diet
  • Persistent cramps, flatulence, bloating, gas
  • Chronic exhaustion that cannot be resolved by sleep
  • Sexual dysfunction and menstruation problems in women
  • Mental issues including forgetfulness, anxiety, depression, restlessness, behavioral changes, cognitive disorders, irritable
  • Anemia or iron deficiency—worms can cause blood loss
  • Feeling hungry all the time, or have strong cravings for processed foods and sugary foods
  • Autoimmune disorders often accompanied with other symptoms such as IBS, arthritis, joint pains and inflammation
  • Recurring yeast infections such as Candida
  • Food allergies and sensitivities
  • Feeling of something crawling under the skin!

What Do Parasites Do In The Human Body?

Because parasites are often “unseen”, they can cause “mysterious” diseases and get away with it. Prescription antibiotics can probably kill a few types of parasites, but they don’t kill the really stubborn parasites.

Once parasites are established in a body and are dominant, they can literally eat holes through organs. Even the microscopic amoeba are known to eat through brains! They multiply so fast that they need more food all the time. This is why people who are infected often have cravings for the wrong types of food, to feed the parasites, and often feel hungry.

Worms can become so big that they perforate the intestines (as in the case of leaky gut), the circulatory system, the lungs and the liver. They rob your body of the nutrients you eat, causing severe nutrient deficiencies that lead to diseases. They eat blood cells, causing people to lose blood and be anemic.

On the whole, parasites depress the immune system by making your entire system toxic. They eat and poop in the body (they are not potty-trained!), causing more wastes in the body that lead to toxicity. All these going-ons in the body degenerates your health, causing fatigue and illness.

Natural Parasite Cleanse

When a body is infested with parasites, there needs to be a complete clean-up of the entire system. Doing a gastrointestinal cleanse first, is very important to prepare the body for eliminating dead parasites and organisms efficiently, without affecting the other organs.

If you have not done a gastrointestinal cleanse, start immediately and follow with a liver cleanse. This page will explain how you can do entire body detox in the right sequence to minimize healing reactions (massive parasites die-off) and to eliminate them efficiently.

Most often, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics to kill parasites and other organisms. Antibiotics are the cause of your gut problem in the first place. Taking them will cause further problems. In any case, they don’t even kill all of the parasites!

Supplements For Parasite Cleanse

When the gastrointestinal tract is cleaned up, it will expose the parasites. Ingesting the herbal parasiticides will get the potent herbs to be in contact with the parasites and strip them off your intestinal wall lining. This is why the protocol works powerfully, effectively and safely to eradicate the parasites.

I particularly like these two sets of Parasite Cleanse formula that are outstanding with their ingredients, and that work effectively to get rid of the parasites at every stage, without any side effects.

Option 1: Teraputics’ Intestine Support Formula

This Intestine Support Formula contains 18 important natural ingredients:

Black walnut hull powder, cranberry fruit, garlic bulb extract, apple pectin fruit powder, carrot root powder, papaya fruit powder, pau d’arco bark powder, pumpkin seed powder, wood betony powder, butternut bark powder, cloves seed powder, wormwood herb powder, oregon grape root powder, blueberry leave, coptis chinensis root, goldenseal root, echinacea angustifolia root powder and zinc.

Many of these herbs have anti-parasitic properties, and combined, they can get rid of over a hundred types of parasites, at every stage, without any side effects.

According to Dr Hulda Clark:

Dying parasites release their toxins such as ammonia. Ornithine and arginine are two natural amino acids that detox ammonia. It is important to take ornithine and arginine together when doing a parasite cleanse. They help the body free itself from excessive nitrogen.

Further, they protect the liver from damage caused by medications and chemicals and stimulate the regeneration of the liver. They strengthen the immune defense by stimulating the production of more active and more effective white blood cells (your body’s defence system).

You can buy recommended supplements here.

These products are powerful yet gentle on your intestines. There won’t be an urgent need to run to the washroom when doing the detox.

However, when initially taking them, you may encounter a few symptoms, such as minor headaches, constipation, gas and bloating, minor skin breakouts. These are signs that you need to drink more water. Find out here, how much water you need to drink daily to stay hydrated, and at least 25-50% more when doing a detox program.

How Long To Take These Parasiticides?

Follow this protocol:

Step 1:

Gastrointestinal cleanse for 45-90 days, depending on the severity of your condition.

Step 2:

If you choose to take Teraputics IntestinePro:  I suggest that you take 1 capsule 3 times a day for up to 30 days (instead of taking 2 capsules 3 times a day for 10 days.) It is important to take it 3 times a day for best result. Start taking this parasitical herbs on the second week after you have started gastro cleanse.

If you choose to take Canxida Remove: I suggest that you take 1 capsule 3 times a day for up to 30 days from the second week after you have started the gastrointestinal cleanse. At the end of 30 days, take the parasite or bacterial test again. If still positive—most likely much reduced—continue for another 30 days. If it tested negative, good—continue for another 10 days for good measure. The recommended parasitical herbs are gentle and safe to be taken for the period. (Note, do not stop taking the parasiticides while waiting for your test results.)

Step 3:

Liver cleanse for as long as you’re doing the parasite cleanse. Milk thistle is a good supplement for liver cleansing and support. Add a beetroot juice 2-3 times a week, if you’re not diabetic.

Support Your System With An Anti-Parasite Diet

In order to help support your system during this time of cleansing, it is recommended to avoid foods that continue to feed the parasites: processed and sugary foods, wheat and pork.
