Yes! You have parasites, this is how to get rid of them…
Today’s post is all about how to get rid of parasites and my recommendations for a parasite cleanse.
SYMPTOMS OF HAVING PARASITES
- Constipation, diarrhea, gas, or other symptoms of IBS
- You once got traveler’s diarrhea while abroad
- You have a history of food poisoning
- Trouble falling asleep, or you wake up multiple times
- Skin irritations or unexplained rashes, hives, rosacea or eczema
- Grind your teeth at night
- Pain or aching in your muscles or joints
- Fatigue, exhaustion, depression, or frequent feelings of apathy
- Never feel satisfied or full after eating
- Iron-deficiency anemia
- Rectal itching, especially at night
- Acne, especially body acne
These are just a few of the many possible symptoms.
HOW ON EARTH DID YOU GET PARASITES?
Those babies are everywhere! In fact, most cultures have traditional methods to cleanse for parasites. They perform these cleanses seasonally to keep the buggers in check.
- Having a Pet – especially if they have been outdoors, you better believe they have them. Always wash your hands after petting animals or touching areas the pet frequents. Feces are where all the invisible to the eye eggs will be hiding. At night some types of parasites will peak out the rectum to lay eggs. Just an animal brushing its butt against something can leave eggs behind. They don’t survive forever outside the body, but it can be long enough for you to touch that area. Also do not allow animals to lick you in the face or mouth.
- Not Washing Your Hands – After you go to the bathroom (even if just to urinate, guys!) is hella important. Wash those hands! Think of all the areas just touched by others who may not be washing their hands. The seat, the flusher, the sink, the faucet, the soap dispenser, the paper towel dispenser, the door handle, etc. Wash your hands!
- Being a Pata Sucia (barefoot) – in many Latin cultures, this is a huge insult. Ladies will be called a pata sucia if they go out dancing all night, can’t handle the pain of their swollen feet from heels, and walk barefoot back to the car at the end of the night. Remember back in the day when Brittany Spears was caught by paparazzi walking barefoot to a gas station bathroom? Well, she was being crazy pata sucia.
Growing up I always wondered what the big deal was about walking barefoot? It was just culturally unacceptable, with no real explanation. So here’s what I realized only recently. Hookworm infection, Strongyloidiasis, Cutaneous Larva Migrans (Creeping Eruption), etc. Here is some information on how skin penetrating parasites find you. For other scary things to make you not even want to walk on the beach barefoot see here.
Now I can officially say, I’ll never be a pata sucia again!
- Contaminated Water – some lakes, river, streams, etc may be contaminated. In some places (even sadly in the United States) even the tap water is infected.
- Contaminated Food – Undercooked meat or even produce can be infected with parasites. That’s why eating raw foods that are healthy can still land many vegans with a belly full of parasites.
- Humans – Yes, even cuddling with the one you love can get you them buggers. Parasite eggs survive under human fingernails for up to 2 months. Think of how many common objects you touch. Infections come from kissing, holding hands, sharing eating utensils, and sexual contact.
- Breathing – Many parasite eggs can live without a host for weeks! One example, microscopic pinworms eggs become airborne and can travel ANYWHERE. Frightenly they can live for two days outside of a host. These microscopic eggs are inhaled only to hatch inside your body.
Some of the Most Parasite Ridden Foods
1. Sushi (raw fish) alone contains eggs and larvae of several species of parasites
2. Pork, Chicken, Cattle – over 50% of animals that go to slaughter are parasite infected (source)
3. Cold Cuts
4. Raw vegetables – Salads, etc.
5. Fresh Fruits
You’re probably thinking…
OK, I’m Terrified. How Do I Get Rid Of Parasites?
How To Get Rid Of Parasites
Let’s do this! First, you’re going to need a bunch of herbs and remedies to attack them on multiple fronts at once. To make it easier on you, just get a cleanse. I like this one from the Dr. Clark Store.
I don’t mind gross nasty tinctures. My husband is an acupuncturist, I’m super used to them now. At first, I would gag or even vomit. If you carefully squirt them in the far back of your throat avoiding the tongue, it’s doable. Eventually, I did get over it and now I can take them like NOTHING. I don’t even know what happened. I just suddenly gained some control over my picky body. lol. But if you don’t want to force yourself to built tolerance for nasty tinctures (weakling!) they also have the option of getting the Freeze-Dried Green Black Walnut in capsules. But before you think I’ve forgotten about you, vegetarians have no fear, there is a vegetarian option too!
The set above is the Parasite Cleanse By Dr. Hulda Clark. This one has the tincture, so you have been warned.
If you have never had a parasite cleanse done, it’s been a long time, or you have a lot of symptoms. I suggest you get Dr. Clark Parasite Cleanse and Maintenance Program.
What To Expect During Your Parasite Cleanse
Brace yourself! The dying off effect is coming!
As your happy little buggers die, they will NOT always go peacefully. In fact, sometimes they make you feel like you’re dying while they are. Make sure you are drinking tons of water! Help expel toxins from the body by using a sauna, eating healthy foods, tons of fiber, and no carbs/sugar if you can. (PSST: You totally can!)
Flu-like Symptoms – Your body may increase the flow of mucus to help get rid of the parasites and the toxins they release as they die. A runny nose, sneezing, coughing, etc.
Headache and/or Dizziness – this can happen if you have a large number of parasites die off. Too many toxins are released and you will feel just awful. This happens to me on about the 3rd or 4th day. Drink TONS of water more than you think you need during the cleanse to help dilute this overload as much as possible.
Gastrointestinal Issues – Flatulence, loose stools or diarrhea, and nausea ( I personally did NOT get any of these, just migraines)
NOTE: You do NOT have to look at them as they come out in pieces in your stool. But if you’re into that, use gloves and have at it. I noticed parasite cleanses tend to clear up my skin and bloating pretty well. They do need to be maintained so be prepared to do some maintenance or else you could end up reinfected pretty quickly. I highly suggest using the maintenance program to avoid this and at least bi-yearly full on cleansing.
Real Talk on Parasites
You may never completely be parasite free. You have to eat, you have to touch things, you have to walk on the beach. Not to mention life just isn’t worth living if you can’t stop to pet a stray or 10 on your way home. That’s why incorporating seasonal or at least bi-yearly parasite cleanses are so important. Just manage the buggers to keep them from taking over your body. Avoid an invasion of the body snatchers situation.
While you’re cleansing consider just doing everything at once and getting the Digestive Aide, Parasite, & Kidney Cleanse Kit. It’s good to give the body a good tune up now and then to keep your machine running smoothly.
GET YOUR PARASITE CLEANSE + 20% Off
If you decide to snag your seasonal or bi-yearly parasite cleanse, be sure to use code KAT for 20% off until Sept. 1, 2017. If you know you’ll eventually do the cleanse this is a great deal. In fact, just stock pile them for the year. I just watched Monsters Inside Me (bad idea!) and now I’m not just happy I’m doing parasite cleanses, I’m freaked out my parents didn’t know about this. Most of my friends always say their great-grandmother would give it to them. Time to bring this healthy habit back. Remember when you get your pet dewormed, you’re porbably due too.
