THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT INTESTINAL WORMS.
Intestinal worms are parasites which live on blood, organs, and undigested food in the intestines of the host (children, adults or animals). You could have worms without even realising that you are infected. Left to their own devices they can also cause unpleasant illnesses. They deplete nutrition, excrete toxic substances and carry bacteria and viruses which weaken your natural defenses.
Worms are quite easily transmitted from person to person or from animals to humans. They may be airborne and passed on just as easily as the common cold and are more common than people think in adults and children.
HOW DOES MY FAMILY BECOME INFECTED WITH WORMS?
You can become infected in different ways depending on the type of worm species:
• They adhere to clothing and bed linen and contaminate hands. Other worm eggs can be picked up off the fur of cats and dogs.
• By breathing in infected worms. Worm eggs are so tiny that you can’t see them with the naked eye. They float on dust and can be easily breathed in.
• By swallowing eggs and larvae, from hands and also fruit and veg that has not been washed properly.
• Worm eggs can be picked up from garden soil, vegetables, salads, sandpits, beach sand and playgrounds, or from someone who already has worms.
• By invasive larvae penetrating the skin.
WORM DISEASE MAY BE DANGEROUS, IF LEFT UNTREATED!
Children who are not treated for worm infestations may have stunted growth, while children treated for worms attain a normal weight to height ratio.
As the worm load becomes greater, look out for these symptoms.
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, weight loss, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea alternating with constipation, blood-stained stool, worms in the stool (not always visible), nausea, vomiting, and anaemia of varying severity.
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.
COMMON SYMPTOMS OF PARASITIC INFECTION:
3) Gas and Bloating
4) Irritable Bowel Syndrome
5) Joint and Muscle Aches
8) Skin Conditions
11) Sleep Disorders
12) Teeth Grinding
13) Fatigue (from mal-absorption)
14) Immune Dysfunction
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.
Our product, Remedy, is an effective herbal de-wormer that targets parasites in the blood muscle and organs. Remedy can be used in conjunction with Paraway (a dry herb for intestinal parasites). We recommend repeating a major Colon Detox every 6-12 months. One can also use Remlax (bowel cleanser & anti-parasitic) once a week.
Its important to deworm the entire family and pets at the same time otherwise re-infestation will take place. The best time to de-worm is 5-7 days after full moon. If you are not convinced that you have parasites, take a stool sample to a pathology lab low counts = 200 and under, high over 600, over 2000 very high. If you feel queasy, dose every alternate day. If you have not de-wormed in the last 9 months do a 5 day de-worm. Parasites not only consume your energy but secrete toxins that take 30% of your energy.
