Warning: parasites make you sick and steal your energy

What would you do if you found out today that there is someone in your house who is poisoning you slowly, day in and day out? Or that an uninvited guest has just entered the basement of your house and is consuming your food supplies? Or that someone throws chemical or biological waste in your home every day to make you sick? Or if you see on your body a tick that feeds on your blood?

I am convinced that you would do everything in your power to get rid of any of the above problems.

But what would you do if all of the above were the work of an author invisible to you? If you could not see either the author or the results of his actions? In this case, even if your life would be in danger, you would do nothing, because you would not be aware of the problem.

That’s why I’m telling you something unpleasant now, but important to you. You are not alone in your body. Outside of you, the “owner” of the body, it is very possible that you have more unwanted guests than you imagine. Who they are, how bad they hurt you and how you can get rid of them you will find out by reading on.

The unwelcome guests we unwittingly host are known as parasites.

The enemy hidden in you that ruins your health

The parasites I refer to in this article are parasitic worms, which can be wide or cylindrical. Another name used for them is that of helminths.

Not all worms are parasites (helminths). Of the many species of worms that exist, some live “on their own.” A good example is the commonplace earthworm, which lives underground and does us no harm. But some worms live in other living organisms, using their resources for their own survival. Only these are called helminths.

Parasites in the human body are worms that feed on the nutrients that should normally feed your body. They may exist in the intestines or other cavities, but there are also parasites that live in the tissues.

Helminths are extremely fertile, with some species laying up to 600 million larvae a year. Also, because the body has no natural enemies, they can sometimes grow to impressive sizes. There are examples of botryocephalus worms that have reached 10 meters. And this while they were in a man’s body!

Parasites can live longer than you think. Ascarids (worms) live up to a year and a half, and botryocephalus (broadworms) can live for more than 25 years.

Did you know that there are about 300 parasitic worms in humans?

Why can’t you ignore the problem of parasites?

You may be wondering if you may have parasites in your body. Here are some facts that might make you think. According to the World Health Organization (WHO):

  • In Europe, one in three people is infested with parasites;
  • In Asia and Latin America every human being is the carrier of more than one type of parasite;
  • In Africa, every inhabitant is the carrier of more than two types of parasites.

Here are the effects of parasite infestation worldwide, according to WHO data:

  • Of the 50 million people who die annually in the world, 16 million die from infectious or parasitic diseases;
  • Over half of the planet’s population suffers from parasitic diseases;
  • Infectious and parasitic diseases are the leading cause of death in the world;
  • Of the total number of patients worldwide, intestinal worm infestations are in 3rd place.

Sounds awful? Maybe it would be if there were no solutions. I have provided you with the above data to draw your attention and to become aware of the danger that parasites pose to your health and life. And to have enough motivation to act and eliminate unwanted guests who consume your resources and poison you.

15+ diseases that parasites can cause

In order to better understand what parasites do in the human body, I will give you examples of concrete problems caused by parasites.

Parasites have no interest in killing their host, so their presence in the body is quite difficult to detect, especially in the beginning. But if they are allowed to grow and multiply freely, they can cause a number of problems.

1. Parasites steal the nutrients you need

Worms that live in your intestines or tissues feed on the nutrients that should provide you with energy and cell regeneration. Parasites can consume between 15-25% of the nutrients you eat. They consume essential vitamins for you, trace elements and sugars. Often a severe hunger is a sign of the presence of parasites in the body, which consumes carbohydrates that should give you energy. Thus they literally steal your energy and cause premature aging.

Does it seem hard to believe that parasites can “steal” a quarter of your food? Not after watching the video below. This is the case of a 3-year-old child who was operated to remove parasites from his large intestine.

Other parasites are not only satisfied with your food, but eat your blood directly. For example, a pinworm can absorb up to 40 ml of blood in 24 hours. As a result, the infected patient appears medically to have anemia. But if he is treated for anemia, nothing will work out, because the parasite will still be there.

2. Parasites block or destroy certain organs

Parasites can exist in any part of the body: intestines, lungs, eyes, brain, even in the heart and stomach.

Imagine a few 2-3 meter worms living in a gut. Due to their length, they will not be able to stand unfolded, but will gather in the form of a clump that can cause:

  • Intestinal blockage (intestinal occlusion);
  • Rupture of the intestinal wall due to pressure exerted by the cluster of worms, followed by infestation of the abdominal cavity.

In both cases the solution is surgery.

The intestinal worms are also fixed with suction cups or hooks to the intestinal wall. This leads to the erosion of the intestinal mucosa in that place, leading to bleeding, pain or even intestinal necrosis.

But worms can also live in tissues, so they can reach any organ and compromise its functioning. Echinococcus, which usually settles in the liver and produces hydatid cyst, can also live in the brain. As it increases in volume – and due to the rigidity of the skull – it causes cerebral ischemia and cortical atrophy.

Other worms can live in the bile ducts, sometimes blocking the total elimination of bile. Infested patients arrive at the hospital diagnosed with hepatitis or biliary dyskinesia, although the cause of the problem is parasites.

If you have a strong heart, watch the next movie. If you don’t want to risk it, you can find the story of this real case below.

Here is the short story. A man who had heart pain was diagnosed with a heart tumor (cancer) due to a large outgrowth that was observed on his heart on an ultrasound examination.

The man was scheduled for surgery to have his tumor removed, and the operation was filmed for medical students’ use. The surprise came when instead of the tumor, surgeons discovered a large colony of flatworms. So big that it seriously disturbed the functioning of the heart.

3. Parasites poison you and allergenize your body

Parasites not only feed on your nutrients, but also intoxicate your body with their excretion products. Moreover, some parasites secrete certain very strong toxic substances in certain periods of life, which they eliminate in the body. They are absorbed into the bloodstream and then mainly affect the nervous and muscular tissue.

Parasites are a source of intoxication of the body even after they die, because their body decomposes and the toxic substances in it are eliminated in the human body.

Another source of allergies in the body in the presence of parasites is the reaction of the immune system to them.

The presence of parasites in the body can cause problems such as:

  • allergies;
  • reduced resistance to infections (frequent infectious and viral diseases);
  • eczema;
  • psoriasis;
  • bronchial asthma;
  • liver and pancreatic diseases;
  • epilepsy;
  • severe joint syndromes;
  • diseases of the retina, eye;
  • asthenia;
  • anemia;
  • increased risk of cancer.

The above problems can have many other causes, not only the presence of parasites. But keeping parasites under control through preventive and deworming measures reduces the risk of these health problems in your life.

Get rid of parasites once and for all

Even though parasites are very dangerous to you, they are just as easy to control as they are to cause you discomfort.

First of all, you don’t have to worry or blame yourself if you didn’t know about the danger that parasites pose to you. It is not your fault, it is not a very approached subject and there is not enough education on this subject. Maybe it’s because most people aren’t aware of the danger, and because they’re generally ashamed to admit it when they’re infested with parasites.

It is inevitable that at some point in your life you will have parasites in your body. Their eggs and larvae are almost everywhere in the environment we live in, so it is impossible not to come in contact with them. That is why deworming must be a constant concern, not just something you use only in case of force majeure.

Here’s how you can prevent parasites from entering your body and how you can eliminate those that are already there.

1. Follow some rules of personal hygiene

  • Wash your hands before meals;
  • Wash well the vegetables you serve at the table;
  • Do not drink unfiltered water, especially from springs, wells;
  • Do not eat unsalted caviar or unsalted lake fish;
  • Do not eat heat-processed meat;
  • Periodically deworm your dog or cat;
  • Do not use dog or cat feces as flower fertilizer;
  • Uses devices against mosquitoes and mosquitoes.

2. Use herbs, fruits or spices in the diet and antiparasitic

There are plants, fruits or spices that have an antiparasitic effect, some of which can be found below:

  • Cranberries
  • Raspberry
  • Figs
  • Lemon
  • Cabbage
  • Pickled cabbage
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Pomegranate
  • Spirulina
  • chlorella
  • red hot peppers
  • horseradish
  • black pepper
  • thyme
  • Mint
  • pelin amar
  • pumpkin seeds
  • watermelon seeds
  • mustard
  • cinnamon
  • cloves
  • aloe

Do regular deworming

Hygiene rules are essential to protect yourself from parasites. The above herbs and spices are also helpful if you use them in your diet. But if you want to be sure that you are safe and that you prevent the development of parasites in your body, I recommend that you do a regular prophylactic deworming program.

My advice is to do a preventive deworming every month once every 3-4 months (3-4 times a year). If you find it too much, I remind you that veterinarians recommend those who have dogs or cats to deworm them every 3 months. If they need and deserve a quarterly deworming, we certainly need it too. And we deserve it. Really, why don’t doctors tell us to have regular deworming?

Preventive deworming (prophylactic)

For one month:

1. Eat more high-fiber plant foods than usual. Add nuts, seeds, raw vegetables, fermented dairy products and as many of the plants and spices as possible to the diet.

2. Reduce the consumption of salt, sugar, coffee, sweets, alcohol, citrus fruits, potatoes, meat, carbonated drinks, eggs, white bread.

3. Use natural deworming products. I use and recommend the products you find here and here, but you can find other similar products on the market if you search.

4. Help your body eliminate parasites and their debris

  • Make enemas to cleanse the intestinal mucosa of parasites. Enema with baking soda, enema with onion and garlic are two very useful options;
  • Use natural laxatives;
  • Take baths with essential oils. A few drops of anise, lavender, carnation, lemon, or thuja oil added to the tub promotes the elimination of parasites.

5. Repeat the process in 3-4 months.

Sounds hard? Is not. Don’t be discouraged by the fact that the list has 4 steps. I reformulate it to see that it is simple:

1. Eat lighter foods and reduce your intake of animal protein, flour and sweets as much as you can

2. Take natural deworming products

3. Repeat the process in 3-4 months

Therapeutic deworming

If you know for sure that you have parasites or if you have certain diseases that you cannot get rid of and that can be caused by parasites, do a therapeutic deworming. Apply the above deworming process, but for a period of 3-6 months.

Now you know how important it is to periodically have a prophylactic deworming, and what are the risks you are exposed to if you neglect the parasites and do not keep them under control. You also have a model of deworming program that you can apply tomorrow.

It’s your turn. Make yourself a dewormer. If you have a family and possibly children, it is ideal to do it together. Then write to me and tell me how you feel. My bet is that you will have more energy, you will feel easier and with more zest for life.

The subject of parasites and deworming is quite broad. I have not exhausted this topic and I promise to return with other articles on this topic. But you have enough information to understand why deworming is important to you and how you can do effective deworming. If you still need information or details before you start, contact me and I will help you.
