The connection between parasites and health problems is very strong. This conceptis very accepted in third world countries but ignored in developed countries. Why? And with as many outdated water-treatment systems, international travel, imported food and use of massive amounts of antibiotics, our bodies are very susceptible to parasites.
I read one resource that stated that as many as 73% of people struggle with symptoms caused by parasites that lead to weight gain.
How do you get worms? We pick up worms from some of the things we eat, from the dirt, and from the dust we breathe in.
Signs of internal (often intestinal) worms include:
· Abdominal Cramping
· Anxiety and Nervousness
· Brain Fog
· Bruxism (Grinding the teeth—especially at night time)
· Clear Mucous Strands in the Stool (Yes you should be looking at it each time you go! And yes, I will ask you what it looks like when you consult with me.)
· Dark Circles Around and Under the Eyes
· Difficulty Sleeping
· Dry Lusterless Hair with Split Ends
· Frequent Infections such as Colds or Yeast
· Heart Palpitations
· Yeast Infections
· Increased Cramping (Menstrual)
· Joint or Muscle Pain
· Pain in the Lower Right Quadrant that comes and goes (Spasms in the Ileocecal Valve)
· Pica Appetite (cravings—often for sugar or salt)
· Poor Coordination
· Big pot bellies due to the lack of intestinal tone
· Skin Conditions
· Stomach Problems
More than 130 different species of parasites have been found in
U.S. food, water, air and soil. Some of those can cause problems in humans.
Most adults (pets and people) have enough enzymes in their mouths to break down and kill off most of the eggs coming in through our mouth and nose. Our stomach acids break down even more. And then there are some eggs that get by both of those back-up systems. This is when problems can occur as the parasite eggs hatch, attach or inhabit somewhere in our bodies and then grow into adults. In the case of the roundworm, these adult parasites are producing more eggs within just 14 days—millions of them in their lifetime.
The definition of a parasite is an organism, in which cannot live without a host organism. Parasites rely on the host to provide something they need, and in the process of taking what they need they can often cause the host harm, but it does its best not to kill the host or its home no longer exists!
Parasites, in which we are most familiar with are usually the multi-cellular kind, such as fleas, ticks, intestinal worms, lice and leeches. Parasites, which can often cause us even greater distress are the one-celled or unicellular organisms called protozoan parasites or protozoa.
Protozoa are microscopic unicellular organisms, in which are as complex, if not even more so, than our bodies cells. Like our cells, they have a nucleus and highly specialized organelles; however they also have a complex life cycle, which includes different stages of maturation such as eggs, oocysts, pre-adult and adult forms. As hosts we provide the specialized environment where these protozoa can live, grow, and reproduce!
Because adults have a better immune system, fewer worms survive so it’s harder to medically diagnose that you have them. Often it takes several samples over a lengthy time to actually be able to see evidence of parasites in a stool, skin or urine sample. Yet, people are still infected and experiencing the symptoms. This can be really annoying to everyone involved, including your doctors.
One reason why you should stay on top of the worm situation is that worms carry viruses into our body. Some of these viruses can cause cancer, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and a host of other diseases.
Had your water tested lately? People can get lots of parasites from the water they drink and even the water used to clean salad greens (especially when you are visiting less developed countries.) And parasites can live in your gut for years after drinking out of that creek just once on a camping trip long, long ago. If you have a well, your water should be tested at least once a year for bacteria and protozoal parasites.
Did you know that worms could make you fat and give you “leaky gut”? Here’s how this happens:
1) Parasites block absorption of nutrients in the small intestine. Many parasites live in the small intestine where they absorb nutrients you take in. Some of them attach to the inside of the intestine with tiny little teeth while others just lie in a clump sometimes moving up and down the intestine depending on the foods you eat therefore causing gas, constipation and diarrhea. Worms cause the inside of your intestines to be irritated and inflamed so that they can’t function properly.
Because the intestines are irritated, they cannot efficiently absorb vitamins, minerals, fats and other nutrients that balance hormones, stabilize blood sugar and boost metabolism.
2) Parasites are often responsible for yeast overgrowth inside the body as they hinder the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. This causes gas, bloating and pain as the stretch receptors (called nociceptors) inside the gut are activated. A normal amount of yeast is always in the gut, but when the flora is imbalanced, these yeast get out of control and reproduce too quickly.
3) Parasites cause the body to become acid and toxic. When this happens, excess fluid is retained inside and outside the cells making weight loss virtually impossible!
4) Parasites make your kidneys and liver work extra hard to clean up toxins produced by the parasites. This leads to increased fluid retention, fatigue, irritability and even more weight gain.
Natural Wormers: There are lots of natural wormers out there. Some are more effective than others. Some natural wormers are: Garlic, Cloves, Cranberry, Black Walnut, Cilantro, Wormwood, Raw Hulled Pumpkin Seeds, Pomegranate, Diatomaceous Earth, Rascal, Zymex, Vermifuge, and homeopathics specific for each worm, but nothing is as effective as our Parasite Blend here at Advance Detox Center $25.
Tip: Parasites thrive on simple carbs such as white flour, sugar and rice. Eliminating these from your diet for a 2-month period or more while on natural wormers will help in their effectiveness.
If you have any food cravings, one sure sign they are “wormy” is when they tell me they crave cloves. Clove oil has been shown to penetrate the egg and kill it where the other herbs only kill the adults. Sometimes people who crave salt have tapeworms. Herbs that kill parasites are often found in herbal cancer formulas because parasites are often a core cause of that particular disease.
The Healing Crisis: When too many parasites die all at once in your body, they can release large doses of cellular waste and toxins. For gas, bloating or intestinal discomfort you will want to add to your supplement program a refrigerated form of probiotics. Eating a couple cups of yogurt daily for a few days may also help. Peppermint tea helps calm the stomach and cover up the bad breath from detoxification, and drinking lots of water during this time will help flush the toxins as well.
