Parasites are any organism, which invade and feed off the host causing illness within the host. These can be protozoa (one celled organism), orthropods (insects) and worms. In addition to directly causing health problems, parasites can bring other microorganisms with them such as the deer tick bringing Borrelia burgdorferi, a spirocete that causes Lyme disease.

Common sources of parasites include pets, soil, improperly cooked meat, water, and even people.

Symptoms & Outcomes

Abdominal PainDiarrhea and Cramps are the most common symptoms. These symptoms may last for a day or be intermittent for years. Even if the symptoms go away, it doesn’t mean the infection is gone. The parasite can live on and create symptoms unrelated to the intestinal tract such as InfertilityAsthma and Diabetes. Other symptoms include Teeth GrindingAllergiesIrritable BowelAsthma and Infertility

Treatment/Solutions

Traditional stool tests are notoriously poor at diagnosing parasitic infections as only some 5% of infestations are detectable using this method.

Accredited labs such as Diagnos-Techs use specialized techniques for a more comprehensive assessment of parasites in stool and in saliva.

Herbals and/or homeopathics can kill the parasites both inside and outside the intestines while balancing your internal environment. This can help to fully eliminate these parasites and thwart their return.

Replacing helpful bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria, help to keep parasites in check by competing in the body with parasites is also crucial to achieving a successful resolution.

A parasite cleanse every year or so can be good for health maintenance by eliminating early stage parasite infestation.
