Unless you have recently done a parasite cleanse you probably have parasites !
Some are so tiny; a microscope is needed to see them.
They may be found in our organs – liver, kidneys, brain, heart etc and in our fluids – blood and lymph as well as our intestinal tract.
From where do they come?
- Airborne eggs, we breath them in as they are light as dust and may be passed on as easily as the common cold.
- Fruit and veg
- Our pets – if you have pets, do a parasite cleans every six months.
- Not scrubbing our nails
- Not washing hands properly
- Beach sand
- Clothes and bedding:
Dientamoeba Fragilis, a single-celled parasite, is often associated with Threadworm. It is thought that it might be protected by threadworm eggs. Threadworms are caught when someone swallows the worm’s eggs. Threadworm eggs hatch inside the bowel, where they live, then travel out through the anus (back passage) to lay their eggs on the skin there at night time. Threadworm eggs may be picked up on the fingers and transferred to the mouth if the person scratches their bottom or does not wash their hands after going to the toilet. Threadworm eggs may also fall off into bedding or clothing, or be wafted into the air, settling on many surfaces in the home or school.
Standard diagnostic testing will miss many infections (Yang & Scholten)
How do worms affect us?
This is difficult to answer as they may affect us in our own body’s weakness. Here are some of the most common:
- Irritability, Restlessness, & Tiredness. Parasites not only consume your energy but secrete toxins that take 30% of your energy.
- Skin and Respiratory Symptoms
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Digestive problems
- Gas and Bloating
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Joint and Muscle Aches
- Skin Conditions
- Sleep Disorders
- Teeth Grinding
- Fatigue (from mal-absorption)
- Immune Dysfunction
- Frequent Cough
- Itching or irritation around the anus or between the toes
Parasites deplete nutrition, excrete toxic substances and carry bacteria and viruses which weaken your natural defenses.
Skin And Respiratory Symptoms
If there is itching or has an irritation around the anus or between the toes, allergies, frequent coughing & slight fever.
Irritability, restlessness & tiredness.
Poor appetite, poor digestion, fatigue, muscle aches, weight loss, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea alternating with constipation, gas, bloating, bleeding, worms in the stool (not always visible), nausea, vomiting, and anaemia of varying severity.
IBS & Parasites. The Evidence:
- Over 50% of IBS patients have Blastocystis hominis, a parasite — a microscopic single-celled organism (protozoan). (Yakoob J, et al. Parasitol Res. 2010)
- Over 20% of IBS patient have Dientamoeba Fragilis, a single-celled parasite . (J.Williams et al. Biomedical Scientist. 2002)
- The symptoms of B.hominis, D.fragilis and IBS are identical (Windsor 2007))
- IBS symptoms resolve when D.fragilis is successfully treated (TJ Borody, et al. 2002)
Research has shown that 74% of worm infections are mixed infections, commonly with three types of nematode: hook worms, whipworms and large roundworms, so it is possible for a person with a large worm load to experience many symptoms.
Dr Roger Mason of Mississippi in his book the Causation of Rheumatoid Arthritis, states that Indolimaxana (a parasite) is one of the main causes of rheumatoid arthritis plus muscle and joint related problems. His thinking is 60% of parasites reside in digestive system and 40% located in the body including liver, pancreas, sinus cavities and even brain. HE LINKS MANIC DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY, NERVOUSNESS AND MANY MENTAL DISORDERS TO INTESTINAL PARASITES.
Osteoarthritis can be as of a result of a microscopic parasite that eats cartilage when it has burrowed its way right through, the fluid that normally lubricates joints goes into the bone causing bow leggedness and other disfigurements. As parasite eggs are laid in the intestinal wall and organs, it appears the full moon causes these to spill out and then hatch in approximately 17 days. De-worming is necessary reasonably frequently, at least every 6 months. Alternatively one can use not toxic herbal preparations such as Remlax on a weekly basis.
It takes 5-8 times as much nutrient to build and repair as it does to maintain.
Help In The Home:
Dish cloths may be loaded with bacteria and viruses, so boil or bleach your kitchen cloths and sponges regularly.
Cook with garlic, parsely, cinnamon, and cloves as they are all natural anti-parasitics.
