13 (+1) Benefits of Natural Parasite Cleansing
As recently reported in sports blogDeadspin:
“Columbus Blue Jackets prospect and former Miami (Ohio) hockey player Carson Meyer might look really tired in (this photo) from a June 2017 interview, but any visible gauntness might be from the fact that he had a goddamn tapeworm in his body for, according to doctors, a full year.
“Meyer’s 2017-18 season with the RedHawks was totally derailed because of the parasite, asThe Athletic’s Aaron Portzline reported in lovely detail. The prospect had no appetite, lost weight, and was falling asleep during drills. Test results couldn’t pinpoint it to mononucleosis or something similar. Meyer finally discovered what was draining his energy when he sat on the toilet in February:
“Doctors believed Meyer’s specific parasite wasdiphyllobothrium latum, which comes from eating undercooked fish.”
An infection like this is so extreme and otherworldly that most people think “it could never happen to me.” It’s likely that something this rare will not. Nevertheless, there are thousands of types of parasites that can enter your body in a variety of ways--most often orally--causing symptoms much less obvious than extreme weight loss.
Symptoms like these: digestive issues, chronic headaches, vertigo, fatigue, and skin rashes, are the signs of a parasitic infection and are often much more subtle, yet still uncomfortable. They succeed in holding you back from your most optimal health.
If you’ve ever traveled out of the country or camped and needed to filter your own water sources, it’s likely you may have ingested contaminated food or water. But even if you’ve eaten in a restaurant, cross-contamination is possible in the kitchen, between raw meat and other prepared foods. Some doctors believe that open salad bars are breeding grounds for parasites, along with their egg deposits. Consuming raw sushi can be a risk factor, as well.
Even swimming in a lake or pond, or any unclean body of water, is a way to invite parasites into your body. Using a public restroom after someone with a parasitic infection is another easy to way become infected with the eggs of these unwanted pathogens.
You’re even more susceptible if you have a weakened immune system, or if you have a chronic infection (like Lyme disease, a high viral load, or even a simple tooth infection). This is because your body becomes a hospitable host for pathogens, allowing them to thrive inside of you when others’ immune systems might keep the infection in check.
Though parasites can cause uncomfortable symptoms, research suggests that they could have even more serious and debilitating effects. According to a study in theInternational Journal of Parasitology, liver flukes in particular can lead tocholangiocarcinoma, or bile duct cancer. This has been an issue in certain parts of the world, especially in regions where raw fish is consumed often.
Other parasites can leave you malnourished and lacking vital nutrients, leading to severe fatigue, pain, and failure to thrive--such as was the case with Carson Meyer. Your body may be able to hold out for a time, but even the most fit, most athletic, need help in this pathogen fight.
If you’re thinking, ‘I’ll just go to my doctor’s office and ask for a parasite test so I can stop worrying,’ it’s not that simple. Testing for parasites is incredibly difficult, and there are few (if any) accurate tests that are comprehensive enough to cover every type of infection. Most lab tests are only looking for certain “common” helminths and protozoa, and many tests require that the parasite be alive once the stool sample is received and the specimen is viewed. Even if you take a home stool test, the likelihood that the lab catches the right parasite at the right point in the life cycle is fairly low--and that’s not even accounting for human error on the visual slide identification.
If you do have a parasitic infection, it’s not likely that you’d ever see most of these bugs in your own stool, either. 70% of parasites are completely microscopic, meaning even if you’re killing them off during your cleanse, you won’t see them on the way out.
Many parasites are highly intelligent and able to alter their particular life cycle and reproduction pattern to allow them the best chance at survival inside your body. They can evolve or adapt to hide (so your immune system doesn’t see them as invaders), so we’ve got to outsmart them.
This is where natural parasite cleansing comes in, safely using herbs, supplements, BioActive Carbon™, and diet to eradicate a wide variety of possible pathogenic infections. Cleansing parasites naturally is easier on your body, especially when you use proper binders and detox support methods to help the process along.
Roundworms: Roundworms, also called nematodes, can lay hundreds of thousands of eggs a day. Symptoms include stomach pain, trouble sleeping, respiratory issues, and rashes. Roundworm larvae can go through the intestines to the bloodstream, and spread to other organs. They’re about the thickness of earthworms.
Pinworms: Symptoms of pinworms include an itchy anus, mood disorders, and GI tract upset. These parasites crawl out of the anus at night to lay eggs. They’re only about a half an inch long.
Tapeworms: Tapeworms can live inside human intestines for almost a decade, causing weight loss, hunger, and poor absorption of nutrients. They can also cause no symptoms at all. It’s possible for tapeworms to grow 20-30 feet long.
Hookworms: Hookworms have sharp teeth they use to penetrate the skin and consume blood. Hookworms can cause fatigue, anemia, swelling, brain fog, and stomach pain. They generally settle in the intestines, but can affect the lungs, too.
Ropeworms: Ropeworms are a recent classification of parasites. The medical community debates whether these are actual worms, intestinal lining, or perhaps gelatinous residue from parasite cleansing supplements. They’re usually seen after colonics or coffee enemas, and they can be 1-2 feet long and bumpy in texture.
Flatworms: Flatworms can be found in the bladder, lungs, liver, kidneys, GI tract. There are many types of flatworms, and they can range from 1 centimeter to dozens of feet.
Flukes: Flukes look like small tongues and have a sucker they use to attach to their hosts. Liver flukes are the most common types of flukes found in the human body, but there are also blood, urinary, intestinal, lung, and other kinds of flukes.
Whipworms: Though commonly found in dogs, whipworms can affect humans as well. Whipworms can be contracted by contaminated dirt or foods that have not been thoroughly washed or cooked. Symptoms include blood in stools, stomach pain, nausea, and weight loss. They’re usually about 1-2 inches and shaped like a small whip--one thicker end and one thinner end.
While it is true you may feel some uncomfortable symptoms during the cleansing process, the upside to treatment far outweighs the temporary discomfort. Many do not feel any symptoms at all, or simply feel a slightly upset stomach. As long as you keep supporting your liver, gallbladder, and kidneys through the methods mentioned above, like castor oil packs, soon you’ll be on the other side of the unpleasant die-off. Here are some benefits of natural parasite cleansing to look forward to:
Along with the recommended parasite protocol, you can also modify your diet and lifestyle to have the best chance at ridding unwanted pathogens from your body.
Possible Side Effects of Parasite Cleansing:
It is possible to experience die-off from parasite cleansing. Some common die-off signs include headache, aching or soreness, fatigue, headaches, digestive upset, chills, or other uncomfortable symptoms. Though binders like BioActive Carbon™ will help bind to the toxins being released, be sure to support your detox and drainage pathways. Coffee enemas, castor oil packs, hydration, lymphatic support, and other methods are helpful for minimizing Herxheimer reactions.
Sugar: Sugar feeds parasites, so you want to eliminate it during your cleanse. This includes cookies and cakes, but also “healthier” sources of sugar, like maple syrup, dried fruit, or grapes. Sugar is destructive to the body and addictive, so it’s even better if you can keep your intake to a minimum, even after a parasite cleanse.
Grains: Grains turn to sugar in the body, so it’s best to avoid grains as much as possible while actively getting rid of parasites. That means no bread, chips, rice, corn, oats, quinoa, etc.
Dairy: Dairy is an inflammatory food for the body, for many reasons. While it’s true that some people cannot digest the sugar (or lactose) in milk, there are other reasons why dairy is always at the top of the inflammatory foods list. Milk is processed, pasteurized, and homogenized. Plus, many cows are injected with growth hormones (rBST) so they can produce more milk. Leave it off your plate to give your body the best fighting chance to release parasites… and focus on anti-inflammatory foods, instead.
Fresh vegetables and fruits: The fiber in fruits and vegetables will keep your bowels moving so you’re expelling the parasites and toxins as quickly as possible. It’s best to eat fruits lower in sugar like berries or green apples.
Raw pumpkin seeds: Pumpkin seeds contain an amino acid called cucurbitin, which can paralyze parasites, and could prevent them from attaching to the intestinal wall.

Garlic: The allicin in garlic is potent against bacteria, but also viruses and fungus too. To reap the benefits, eat it juiced or crushed to release the allicin, and start out slowly.
Reference: Ankri, Serge, and David Mirelman. "Antimicrobial Properties of Allicin from Garlic." Microbes and Infection 1.2 (1999): 125-29. PubMed. Web. 7 Dec. 2017.
Ginger: Ginger is great for the digestive system, and it can help relieve die-off symptoms during your parasite cleanse. For example, making tea with fresh ginger, lemon, and a little honey can clear mucus. In studies, ginger has been effective in eliminating parasites.

Turmeric: Curcumin, the compound in turmeric, is a very effective anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant, and antiparasitic food. It has been used in studies to treat severe, drug-resistant parasitic infections.

Papaya Seeds: These seeds have been shown to have anthelmintic effects on parasites in trials performed on rats.

Parasite cleansing doesn't have to be scary or intimidating. It can provide relief from a variety of symptoms, like migraines, digestive upset, chronic pain, and many others. It’s important to give your body the right support, in case you experience die-off symptoms. Stay hydrated, apply castor oil packs, perform coffee enemas, and eat the right foods so your body has the energy and support it needs to eliminate all the pathogens and toxins robbing you from your best health.
