Intestinal Parasites have far surpassed epidemic levels in the United States, with most sources estimating that a massive 85% of Americans have parasitic infections. Because of this, we recommend a intestinal parasites cleanse every six months, care in choosing restaurants, and cleaning up after exposure to animals.
Unfortunately, most conventional doctors are not trained in the treatment of intestinal parasites. It is only when intestinal parasites are visually seen that American doctors will suspect them, which requires a horrific case. There are many symptoms of intestinal parasites that people express in daily life, believing that these are completely normal. While sickness has become normal in the modern lifestyle, it does not have to be. The amount of damage that can be caused by intestinal parasites is virtually limitless, because many are small enough to travel anywhere in the body through the bloodstream. They exist by robbing the body of nutrients. Intestinal parasites are the root cause of Lupus, with all other symptoms being secondary to the parasitic infection. Therefore, Lupus cannot be cured without a parasite cleanse. Of course, Lupus is said to be just another “incurable disease” and an “autoimmune disorder”, according to the conventional doctors.
Identifying The Different Intestinal Parasites
Roundworms -Living in the stomach and intestines, these worms enter through undercooked and contaminated food. Remember that the manure which is used in farming may be contaminated with worms. Always wash your hands after dealing with pets, or their feces.
Heartworms - It is extremely rare for these to occur in humans. In the few cases which have been seen, they usually occur as a single worm in the lungs, rather than the heart. They cannot be spread through from one animal (or human) to another, but must be spread through mosquitoes.
Tapeworms - These intestinal parasites enter the body through undercooked beef, fish or pork. They live in the lower intestinal tract. Use gloves and wash thoroughly after preparing meat for consumption.
Pinworms - Living in the intestinal tracts and lungs, these small white worms come out at night to lay eggs around the anus. The eggs hatch and the worms reenter through the anus. If the human scratches during this time, the eggs lay under the fingernails, spreading to wherever the person touches. It is believed that they are small and lightweight enough to become airborne, leading people to inhale them. This is how they can live inside the lungs. Perhaps smoking does have a benefit, after all.
Hookworms and Threadworms - These can be found in contaminated drinking water, or they can enter directly through the feet. They are tiny in size, and can enter through the soles of the feet, even without any open wounds. Always wear shoes when walking outside. These worms are unique because they have a lifespan of several years, and the eggs can incubate for up to 10 years.
Symptoms of Intestinal Parasites Infection
Repeated diarrhea or constipation
Chronic, unexplained nausea, often accompanied by vomiting
Fatigue and weakness
Multiple food allergies
Loss of appetite
Itching around the anus, especially at night
Difficulty maintaining a healthy weight (over or underweight)
Itching on the soles of the feet, often accompanied by a rash
Coughing blood (severe cases)
Facial swelling around the eyes (roundworms)
Wheezing and coughing, followed by vomiting, stomach pain and bloating (suggesting roundworms or threadworms)
If a conventional doctor believes that you have intestinal parasites, he will prescribe you an anti-parasitic pharmaceutical. These pharmaceuticals are always toxic, for it is their toxicity that kills intestinal parasites. Thus, swelling of the lymph nodes, hands and feet are common, whilst vision problems, lack of coordination, and convulsions can also occur. Diarrhea is typical with these drugs.
These are the most commonly used natural substances for eliminating intestinal parasites infections:
Black Walnut Hulls
Wormwood (from the Artemisia shrub)
Common Cloves (from the clove tree)
Pumpkin Seeds, or Pumpkin Seed Oil Capsules
Neem (Do not take neem if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, because it can work as a contraceptive.)
Thyme leaf and seed
Blends of the above ingredients, with marketing names like ‘Para-Clear’.
We would not recommend choosing one of the corporate formulas, since they are usually overpriced and formulated with low concentrations. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to examine each formula, and evaluate them.
Diatomaceous earth is the best natural anti-parasitic medication. It is actually an all-natural pesticide which does not harm humans or pets. It is believed to kill insects, worms and intestinal parasites by dehydrating them. When used on ants, it usually takes around 20 minutes before they are all dead. One tablespoon of diatomaceaous earth taken by an adult once a day for seven days is believed to be extremely effective at killing all parasites. If this is going to be given to children, bear in mind that height is a better indicator of the size of their G.I. tract than their weight. Thus, a child who is 4 feet tall should take 2 teaspoons, and a child who is 2 feet tall should take 1 teaspoon. If you take this route, we advise you to only buy food grade. Industrial diatomaceous earth is used for swimming pool filters, but it has been chemically treated, and this type is not safe to eat. Try to avoid rubbing it onto your hands, as it can have a drying effect upon the skin. Diatomaceous earth contains heavy metals as part of its mineral content, but it also contains the natural antidote, selenium, which allows otherwise accumulative heavy metals to be flushed from the body. Therefore, it is not really a health concern despite the presence of aluminum and lead. We recommend taking selenium supplements for a week after discontinuing this treatment to ensure that the body thoroughly flushes all of the heavy metals. Our research indicates that diatomaceous earth is the best overall parasite treatment for humans, because it should likewise kill all microscopic blood-born parasites as well. When using it, be sure to drink plenty of fluids, because it will dehydrate a person considerably.
Wormwood and black walnut hulls are known to kill adult worms, whilst cloves kill worm eggs. Some people use this trio for treating intestinal parasites, instead of diatomaceous earth. It is recommended that you take 500 mg. of wormwood and black walnut hulls, whilst taking 1/2 teaspoon of cloves daily for around 14 days. All other herbs mentioned are used in addition to these two core protocols.
As parasites die, they release toxins through their excrement, and from rotting. The most common intestinal parasites, the worm type, attempt to escape by burrowing deeper into the intestines, which can cause sharp pains and cramps. Even when dead, the body is still burdened with the task of flushing intestinal parasites out. This whole process can initially make the person feel sicker than before he started the cleanse, but this is only temporary, and it is a sign that the cleanse is working. While fatigue and grogginess are also to be expected, normal life may be continued, and diarrhea should not occur. Ensure that you are eating a good, wholesome diet throughout the cleanse to ensure that your immune system is at its strongest. After the cleanse, you should feel better, have more energy, and experience sickness less often.
