Could A Parasite Be The Root Cause Of Your Health Problems?

10 signs that may mean you have a Parasite

The signs of a Parasite are often caused by the toxins that it releases into the human bloodstream.

Here are the most common symptoms:

  • Unexplained constipation, diarrhoea, gas, bloating, nausea or other symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
  • You travelled internationally and got diarrhoea on your trip.
  • You have had food poisoning and your digestion has not been the same since.
  • You have trouble falling asleep, or you wake up multiple times during the night.
  • Skin irritations or unexplained rashes, hives, rosacea or eczema.
  • You grind your teeth in your sleep.
  • Painful, aching muscles or joints.
  • Fatigue, exhaustion, mood changes, depression or frequent feelings of apathy
  • You never feel satisfied or full after your meals.
  • You’ve been diagnosed with iron-deficiency anaemia.

Even though the thought of having a Parasite is pretty unpleasant, Parasites are far more common than you might think and are NOT restricted to underdeveloped countries. Parasites exist around the world and can afflict anyone of any race, gender or socioeconomic status. They can cause a myriad of symptoms, but the good news is that they are treatable. If your health has been declining over time, especially if you have been following a plant based, processed food and junk-food-free diet, then it may be possible you have been hosting a number of these pesky Parasites for a long long time. 


What is a Parasite?

A Parasite is any organism that lives and feeds off another organism. Examples of Parasites include:

Roundworms, tapeworms, pinworms, whipworms, hookworms, lice, giardia, mosquitos, bedbugs and scabies. Unfortunately this is only the tip of a huge Parasite iceberg. 

Parasites come in many different shapes and sizes and they can cause a very wide range of problems. Some consume your food (from inside your body), leaving you hungry after every meal and unable to gain weight. Others feed off your red blood cells, causing anaemia. Some lay eggs that can cause itching, skin problems, irritability and insomnia.

Ways You May Get A Parasite

Contaminated food and water, undercooked meats, unclean fruits and vegetables, animals, pets, soil, contaminated blood, insect bites, another infected person, the bottom of your foot etc are all ways in which you may get a Parasite.

Once a person is infected with a Parasite, it’s very easy to pass it on. If you have a Parasite and don’t wash your hands after using the toilet, you can easily pass microscopic Parasite eggs onto anything you touch: the bathroom door handle, salt shaker, your phone, or anyone you touch. Travelling overseas is another way that foreign Parasites can be introduced to your system. It’s also very easy to contract a Parasite when handling animals.

How To Test For Parasites

The best way to test for a Parasite is to get a stool test. Most doctors will run a conventional stool test if they suspect a Parasite. However be aware that not all Parasites are detected and can often be missed.

Treatment Options

Drug Therapies

Your doctor can prescribe a drug that is most effective for your particular Parasite. You may need just one dose, or you may have to take the medication for several weeks. Be sure to take the medicine exactly as it is prescribed or it may not work. Remember that not all Parasites show up on a test.

Complementary/Alternative Therapies

Conventional medical treatments can get rid of Parasites, but alternative treatments may be helpful alongside conventional medications. However, your doctor must find out what kind of organism is causing your problems before you start treatment. 

Alternative treatment would include Chlorine Dioxide Protocol P described in Andreas Kalcker’s book ‘Forbidden Health’.  If you go down the Chlorine Dioxide route, using enemas is one of the most effective treatments. It deals directly with the Parasite. Be sure to read the Protocol P section of the book to ensure you do this correctly. To summarize: 

Parasites produce mucus or biofilm in the bowels where they can hide from the attacks of all drugs, so Chlorine Dioxide enemas play an important role. Chlorine Dioxide can penetrate the mucus and destroy the eggs and larvae dwelling there. Patients should do daily enemas and then progressively decrease to every 3–4 days. Make sure to listen to your body’s needs. Use 10–20 drops of Chlorine Dioxide with its activator, or 10–20ml of Chlorine Dioxide Solution in 2 litres of water. The dose can be increased, if tolerated. The important thing is to hold the solution inside for as long as possible, but not more than 5–10 minutes. 

Parasite Detection In Faeces

Look for worms by direct observation of the faeces. You can use a plastic bowl and a stick to perform the examination after a bowel movement. A microscope is useful for the diagnosis, allowing the observation of tiny Parasites in the blood as well as the presence of eggs or larvae in the faeces. Observation will allow you to control whether the number of Parasites is decreasing. This treatment is highly effective with children who have trouble sleeping, since worms are often the cause of discomfort and restlessness. A very common Parasite is responsible for the onset of anxiety and other attention deficit disorders, especially in children.

Try other alternative treatments if you suspect parasites which cannot be found after a stool test.

Neem Tree (Azadirachta Indica)

The Neem Tree has been used for medicinal cures for thousands of years. Ayurveda medicine has used since ancient times. Hindu medicine has acknowledged the healing and medicinal properties of Neem and Hindu villagers refer to this tree as ‘the people’s pharmacy’ due to its ability to alleviate so many diseases. It is now authorized by Indian authorities to use in medicine. Neem is one of the most potent purifiers and detoxifiers in existence today and has been used to fight all forms of Parasites; in the body, both internal and external.

Epazote (Chenopoidium Ambrosioides)


Also known as Paico, this plant grows in the wild in Central and South American countries. It has healing properties to alleviate digestive problems, reduce gas and eliminate Parasites and intestinal worms. In Mexico, it is a favourite ingredient for soups. Ascaridole is the active ingredient present in Paico. It produces a paralyzing and narcotic effect on intestinal Parasites, loosening their adherence to the bowel walls.

Nutritional Guidelines To Help Keep Parasites From Growing:

Avoid simple carbohydrates such as those found in refined processed foods, fruits juices, dairy products, undercooked meat and all sugar-laden foods, except honey.

Eat raw garlic, ginger, pumpkin seeds, pomegranates, beets and carrots, all of which have been used traditionally to kill Parasites.

Drink a lot of water to help flush out your system.

Eat more fibre, which may help get rid of worms.

Probiotics (Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacilus Plantarum, Saccharomyces Boulardii and Bifidobacteria) help keep your digestive tract healthy, but they may not be appropriate in some severely immune compromised patients.

Digestive enzymes (Swedish Bitters) will help restore your intestinal tract to its normal state, which makes it inhospitable to Parasites.

Vitamin C supports the immune system. Lower the dose if diarrhoea develops.

Zinc supports the immune system, but may interact with certain medications, particularly some antibiotics and it may not be appropriate for people with HIV/AIDS. For people with HIV/AIDS use Chlorine Dioxide as described above.

Herbs are a proven, effective way to strengthen the body’s systems. As with any therapy, you should work with your doctor to diagnose your problem before starting treatment. You can take herbs as dried extracts (capsules, powders or teas), glycerites (glycerine extracts), or tinctures (alcohol extracts).
