The thought of a parasite infection is something that can give anyone the shivers. However, as spooky as it sounds, at least 90% of people will have a problem with parasites at some point in their lifetime. This is due to the fact that parasites are introduced through many of our daily habits, and our compromised immune system makes it easy for them to nestle in and make a home.

Knowing what a parasite infection looks like is half the battle, and the other half is knowing ways to remove them naturally. Both can be done without invasive procedures.

Here’s how you can pick up a parasite, what an infection looks like, and how you can remove them.

How you can pick up a parasite

Parasites can linger unseen in many places, but the most common reason for their infestation is poor hygienic practices. This can start and be spread through:

  • Poorly sanitized food and water

  • Poor personal hygiene

  • Foreign travel (food, water, and environment)

    • Pets (not properly dewormed on a regular basis)

    • Insects

    • Sexual intercourse

    The probability of a parasitic infection will increase with a poor immune system, which will be compromised from sugar, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, heavy metals (e.g., vaccines, dental fillings), stress and various other toxins. Coffee, wheat, dairy and tap water will also make you a better host for parasites.

    Signs of a parasite infection

    The strength of your immune and endocrine system will determine how severely a parasitic infection will affect you. Not everyone with a parasitic infection will have symptoms, but most will experience one or all of the following:

    • Chronic digestive issues like indigestion, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, mucus in stools, leaky gut, nausea, hemorrhoids, burning in stomach, bloody stools and candida.

    • Fatigue

    • Skin problems like dry skin, itchiness, eczema, rashes, hives, papular lesions and sores.

      • Mood and anxiety problems such as mood swings, nervousness, depression, forgetfulness, restlessness, and anxiety.

      • Sleep disturbances such as insomnia, teeth grinding during sleep, bed wetting and disturbed sleep (multiple awakenings).

      • Weight and appetite problems like weight gain, long standing obesity, loss of appetite or uncontrollable hunger and inability to gain or lose weight.

        • Muscle and joint problems, including muscle pain, joint pain, muscle cramping, numbness of hands and/or feet, pain in navel, heart pain and arthritic pain.

        • Blood disorders such as hypoglycemia and anemia.

        • Sexual and reproductive problems like male impotence, erectile dysfunction, PMS, urinary tract infections, cysts and fibroids, menstrual problems, prostate problems and water retention.

        Other symptoms such as excessive saliva, unclear vision, bad breath, poor immune system, fever, respiratory problems, peritonitis, chronic viral or bacterial symptoms and body odour.

        The signs of a parasite infection are wide ranging and can be difficult to pinpoint. However, it makes sense to take these symptoms seriously as a parasite infection can ruin your quality of life.

        How to remove a parasite infection

        The solution to removing parasites is to consume food and herbs that create a hostile environment for them in your body. This can be done several ways, but in this case we will focus on food.

        Food and herbs to consider when removing parasites include raw garlic, red onion, coconut oil, pumpkin seeds, coconut kefir, fermented vegetables, apple cider vinegar, aloe vera, black walnut, cloves, barberry, goldenseal, Oregon grape root, pau d’arco, sangre de drago, oregano oil, wormwood, diatomaceous earth, rosemary and thyme.

        Also, it would be in your best interests to eliminate all sugar, grains, dairy, coffee and alcohol for at least 30 days to ensure that you are not feeding any parasites while you are consuming large amounts of the foods and herbs recommended above. This will give your body the most power to eliminate parasites.

        Over time, if you create the right intestinal ecology, it will make it extremely difficult for you to ever become a host to parasites again. You can jump start the process through an herbal extract formulated to remove parasites and other foreign pathogens.
