Are you in a constant battle with your weight?
Do you battle with anxiety, mood swings or fatigue?
Or maybe you’re one of those people who have chronic allergies, and your antihistamine nasal spray is your faithful sidekick?
The solution to your stubborn health problems could be as simple as tiny little Parasites living in your body.
EVERYONE has parasites. Our gut microbiome is made up of over 500 different species of microbes including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.
Some of these species are vital to the proper functioning of our health.
But a vast array of our ailments and what we think are just normal health challenges are simply a symptom of a parasitic infection.

What symptoms do Parasites cause?

Parasites can cause a host of symptoms, many which people would deem are normal health challenges but, are the sign of a Parasite living in your body. These Parasites can cause:

  • Digestive issues (Gas, bloating, constipation, IBS)
  • Muscle aches and joint pain
  • Skin conditions (acne, hives, rashes, eczema)
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Poor nighttime sleeping and teeth grinding
  • Sugar cravings
  • Secondary gluten and diary intolerances
  • Anemia
  • Inability to lose or gain weight
  • Never feeling full after eating
  • Fatigue
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Yeast infections

Where do we get parasites from?

We can pick up Parasites from anywhere… the soil, public showers (the gym or the beach), improperly washed fruits and vegetables, international travel, our pets, sandpits, meat, and poultry. We can also pick up Parasites from water; the water we drink (if it’s unfiltered), swimming pools, jacuzzies, dams and rivers.

Can we do a test to see if Parasites are present in our body?

Tests can be done however for most functional medicine tests, 90% of the time, parasites can be present and not show up positive in your stool test.

Everyone has parasites, some people’s bodies are just more effective at keeping them at bay than others.

How do we cleanse our bodies from Parasites?

Parasites can be found throughout your body, not just our digestive tracts and colon as one would think. Therefore, it’s imperative that before we start a Parasite cleanse, we focus on opening our drainage pathways. Drainage is your body’s way of removing waste, toxins, and pathogens through a series of pathways.

This is a unique system that allows our bodies to naturally detoxify on their own. You can learn more about Drainage here. After we’ve opened our drainage pathways, we can then start cleansing our bodies of Parasites.

Things we can do to help our bodies eliminate Parasites
1.Take Digestive enzymes and keep on with the Probitoics
These are vital to helping keep our gut keep acidic. An acidic gut microbiome provides an environment in which Parasites don’t like to hide
Limit raw, uncooked food
Stay clear of biltong, raw fish, sushi, raw-cooked meat. Parasites love to linger in this type of food.
Eat fiber-rich foods
Fiber helps your body detox from these Parasites. (Grains, fruit, vegetables, beans, nuts, and seeds. Pumpkin seeds are a real win)!
Ditch the sugar
Yeast, mold, and Parasites all love to feed on sugar. It’s important to starve the Parasites from sugar.

1.Avoid gluten and diary
Both gluten and diary bring inflammation and contribute to a an environment in which Parasites love to hide. By eliminating them from our diets, we starve the Parasites.
1.Up your Zinc intake
Parasites thrive in a low-zinc environment. By making sure our bodies have enough Zinc, we aid our bodies in combatting Parasites.
3.Colon Cleansing
Enemas are extremely helpful in eliminating Parasites.
