In today’s world it would be hard to find anyone who isn’t playing host to some kind of parasite, bacteria, virus, worm, fungus, yeast or protozoa living in their body.
Some parasites are sneaky, going undetected feeding off your nutrition and red blood cells, hiding out in different parts of your body sometimes asleep and sometimes alive. That’s why symptoms can come and go. Some parasites can actually be helpful. But many parasites can be downright social life wreckers.
Constant bowel issues, nausea and a whole raft of symptoms can leave you feeling weak, run down, emotionally unstable and depressed. The toxins parasites release and the associated inflammation can also trigger autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s. The problem is, regular stool tests don’t always pick up parasites and very few pharmaceutical solutions seem to offer long term relief. As a patient, that can be incredibly frustrating because you have symptoms but there is no apparent offender. Comprehensive stool tests used in functional medicine with a health professional experienced in diagnosing and treating parasites is a great place to start.
So, how come some people seem to pick up parasites whenever they travel or succumb to repeated candida infections? Parasites like cosy, warm, moist homes, with lots of processed foods, fungus and yeast to feed off. Diets high in processed foods, dairy, gluten … you get the picture. They often thrive in acidic conditions, when the immune system is weak and there are no major competitors. As the gut is one of the main entry points into the body for parasites, gut conditions and the presence or absence of good gut bacteria can either encourage them to stay awhile or boot them out quick smart.
How do I know if I have parasites in my body?
Your body is home to bacteria, viruses, amoeba, mould, fungi and also worms—collectively known as your microbiome. When any of these ‘bugs’ get out of balance they can cause illness.
If you suffer from any of the below you may have a parasite infection.
- Nausea, abdominal pain
- Frequent, loose watery stools
- Constipation, IBS, bloating
- Traveller’s diarrhoea
- Itchy skin irritations
- Fatigue, exhaustion
- Anaemia, weight loss
- Food/chemical sensitivity
- Brain fog, mood issues
The new generation Parasite Cleanse
If you suspect you have a parasitic infection, please go gently. Yes, you want them gone but you also have to do it in a way that respects your body. That’s why at Probiotic Foods, we developed a three stage Complete Parasite Removal Program that helps to boost immunity, improve sluggish bowels and sets you on a path to complete recovery.
A word of warning
Killing parasites with prescriptions medications/antibiotics may be necessary or using strong antiparasitic herbs. Both of these can make you feel very unwell. Parasites defecate and release their toxic payload as they die, overloading an already weak immune system and stressing the liver as it struggles to detoxify. Be guided by your health professional knowledgeable in holistically treating parasites. We recommend first getting good nutrition to the cells, supporting and enhancing the immune system prior to a parasite cleanse. Our Gut Lovers Guide is a good place to start. Because parasites have a very unique and complex life cycle that allows them to rotate between dormant and alive and take on different forms, be prepared to stick to the program for at least 2-3 months.
How does it work?
Three products make up the Complete Parasite Removal Program: Parastart, Paraclean, Paracide.
Step 1: First gently remove parasites. Parastart contains a blend of herbs targeting parasite overgrowth whilst sparing the beneficial gut bacteria. Soluble fibre, with herbs designed to support elimination and healing of the gut wall, Parastart allows the body to start a comprehensive cleanse. Take 2 teaspoons in the morning before breakfast in clean, filtered water.
Step 2: Now, clean up die-off. Paraclean assists with cleaning up the die-off, a natural event when parasites are eliminated. When parasites live in our body they produce toxic waste products. As you start the parasite cleanse, large amounts of pathogens can be rapidly killed and what’s known as ‘die off’ occurs. Metabolic byproducts are released into the body. Diatomaceous earth and the blend of powerful nutrients helps to detoxify the body of harmful organisms. Take 25ml in the evening before bed. For best results, take Parastart in the morning and Paraclean in the evening for 30 days then introduce Step 3.
Step 3: Reduce worms, fungus and mould. Paracide enhances your cleanses by reducing parasites especially fungus and mould. From day 30 of the cleanse we recommend Paracide drops. Paracide drops are the final stage of the program, designed to eliminate mould and fungus, the home and food source for parasites. Take 12-15 drops twice a day in clean filtered water before meals.
Aim to complete the Parasite Program in 60 days. Even better if you begin on a full moon when parasite eggs hatch. This timing means you will complete two cycles of parasite growth.
