Parasites: what you dont know IS hurting you.

I have been meaning to post about parasites and parasitic infections for a while now. Parasites are a health phenomenon that the majority of allopathic health professionals know little about. You may even be thinking that parasites are small microscopic critters that are harmless or only affect those who live in third-world countries. This my friend is simply not true. "In terms of numbers there are more parasitic infections acquired in this country than in Africa." - Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the National Institute of Health.

Many of us who eat the Standard American Diet are loaded with parasites, we just don't know it. Meat eaters in particular are the most vulnerable. Low energy, migraines, sinus problems, skin disorders and more all have a connection to parasites. Is most cases, many of us are walking around with a trash bag of toxic waste sitting inside of our large intestine, particularly if you don't have a bowel movement everyday. The average American has 8 days of undigested food sitting in their colon. All of this old food is decomposing, giving off toxic gasses and poisoning our blood stream and other organs. This environment is the prime place for parasites to develop, grow and proliferate. Parasites are not picky. They will eat whatever including the meal you just ate, the rotting food in your colon from 5 years ago as well as you own body tissues. These critters compete with your body for nutrients and set you in motion for a wide range of health problems. 

Now lets examine the parasites themselves. Parasites excrete waste of their own. This waste poisons your blood stream. So now not only do your have your own sludge of waste that you haven't addressed, but now you have to add the waste from the parasites on top of it. Ewwwwwww, not a pretty picture. Parasites also lay eggs, eggs that hatch on the walls of your colon and spread throughout the body. So now, you have new generations of parasites lurking in your tissues and organs causing you to suffer from chronic fatigue, joint pain, allergies, colds, excessive gas, skin problems and more. 

Here are a few different types of parasites that may be lurking inside of you as we speak: 

The hookworm latches on the walls of the colon with its sharp teeth where it feeds on blood.
  1. The tapeworm is the longest parasite.  A mature adult can lay one million eggs per day.
  2. Tapeworm eggs are embedded in the colon.
  3. The roundworm can grow to 20 inches (50 cm) long and lay 200,000 eggs per day.
  4. Pinworms migrate outside the colon during the night to lay their eggs around the anus.  This causes the nightly, annoying itching of many unsuspecting victims.

You may be wondering, "What on earth is going on? You've got to be kidding me? There's no way all of that is going on inside of me?" Trust me it is. The question is, what are you going to do about it? Parasites don't go away on their own. You can't fast and try to starve them out as they simply will feed off of the old toxic waste inside of your colon. There life cycle must be destroyed and they have to be evicted out. 

So what's the next step? First, you need to address the underlying toxicity in the body before you can even begin trying to work on the parasites. So many of us are harboring old waste from years of poor diet and lifestyle choices that we must start with the basics first. We must cleanse on a deeper level removing old fecal matter and toxic waste from our bodies, then we can address the creepy critters that are lurking inside of us, robbing our body's of energy, stealing our food and wrecking emotional havoc in our lives. I work with clients everyday who are dealing with parasites. It's a tough pill to swallow but knowing is half the battle. Leave a comment or feel free to contact me to discuss a plan on addressing what's going on inside of you. What you don't know IS AND WILL hurt you.
