Unwanted Guests - Are Parasites Living in Your Body?

Jun 19, 2008
Detoxing your body can aid in weight loss and health restoration. One reason to detox is to remove parasites which serve no healthy purpose.

Parasites are worm-like creatures living in your body that I'm sure you didn't intend to invite. Nearly all of us ... believe it or not ... have parasites living in our body. It's a fact of life.

They find their way into our bodies in many ways. They can live in the animals and fish whose meat we serve at our dinner tables. They can be in our fruits and vegetables. They can be in our water supply.

You can even pet you own dog or cat and inadvertently pick up a parasite. It gets on your hand and then your hand goes in your mouth. No wonder mom always said to go wash your hands.

Parasites live off their host ... that's you. And that's never to your benefit.

They can actually work their way into the walls of your stomach and intestines causing severe pain. They can cause irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diarrhea, constipation, extreme fatigue, gas, bloating, skin rashes, and abdominal discomfort.

Even painful symptoms you think might be appendicitis or an ulcer might actually be caused by parasites burrowing their way into your body.

They can deplete you of 80-90% of your nutrients and completely zap you of energy. A sludge-filled body is a ripe breeding ground for these little critters. And they can obviously grow and multiply.

How can you minimize the parasite population in your residential body? First, be sure to thoroughly wash fruits and vegetables. Make sure your meat is fully cooked.

Wash your hands frequently and keep them out of your mouth. If you are a finger nail biter, take action to break that habit.

You can also take steps to make sure your food is thoroughly digested. I will have future articles about digestion. Properly digested food minimizes the garbage that lingers in your body that otherwise provides a feast for parasites.

Maintaining an adequate level of HCL in your stomach is very important. HCL has a pH of 1. Besides aiding in digestion, HCL works to prevent infections, since most organisms that are ingested, like bacteria and parasites, are destroyed by an adequately acid environment.

Ironically, our society treats digestive ailments with antacids making even less HCL available. In order to promote the production of HCL, you can drink fresh lemon juice or a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water about 30 minutes before a meal. If you find this helps your digestion, then you were likely suffering from low HCL production.

It's a challenge to avoid ingesting parasites completely. But knowing how to minimize those that enter and how to expel those that do will do wonders to restore your health.
