Microbe Formulas Founders Reveal How the Full Moon Affects Us & the Critters Crawling Inside

Meridian, Idaho, March 22, 2021— A full moon has a significant impact on the human body and the creatures living inside it. Creatures inside? That’s right — parasites. In the article Dark Side of the Full Moon: How It Affects Health and Monthly Detox Tips, Dr. Jay Davidson and Dr. Todd Watts, founders of health company Microbe Formulas, outline how a full moon can influence hormones, parasites, sleep patterns, and much more. 

“The truth is we all have parasites,” explain Dr. Davidson and Dr. Watts. “You could pick up an unwelcome critter from cuddling your dog, eating sushi, swimming in a lake, walking barefoot outside, and more.”

Research reveals that a full moon naturally decreases melatonin levels and increases serotonin levels in the human body. This can disrupt your immune system, mental state, mood, and sleep. 

And it’s not just us that are affected. The full moon has a similar chemical effect on any parasites inside you, making them more active in your body at this time. These lunar hormonal changes can influence your brain directly, or indirectly through parasites. 

The doctors add, “To survive, [parasites] need to inhibit your body’s essential functions. Researchers have found that parasites can interfere with your neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and serotonin.”

Because of the chemical changes around a full moon, parasites are active and potentially detached from internal tissues. This is the opportune time to detox them. In the article, Dr. Davidson and Dr. Watts suggest doing a Full Moon Detox Challenge

The full moon’s effect on chemicals and parasites can put your body out of whack. The doctors recommend staying aware and keeping your eye out for patterns. Detoxing parasites using natural herbs and taking care of your basic physical health can be the key to stability no matter the moon phase.
