Parasite Cleanse: Side Effects and Benefits

Our body is full of parasites. But don’t worry! It sounds worse than it is…

Basically, a parasite is a tiny organism that lives inside of a larger organism, and feeds off of the nutrients that the larger organism ingests. So, whenever you eat a nice, big nutritious meal, the parasites inside your body will enjoy the vitamins and minerals from that meal, just like you will. Of course, the portion of those nutrients the parasites take is very, very small, but then you must consider that thousands of parasites may be seated at your dinner table. If left to feast, these parasites can cause nutrient deficiencies, such as in iron - a favorite among parasites.

Now, you might be wondering if, perhaps, you are unusually low in iron (or some other important nutrient)... And if a parasitic invasion might be to blame… So, here are some common symptoms of nutrient deficiency due to parasites:

  • Digestive discomfort, such as frequent bloating or queeziness
  • Gas or indigestion
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Skin rashes or itchiness 
  • Acne
  • Fatigue or muscle weakness (this could be due to an iron deficiency)
  • Painful menstruation
  • Anxiety
  • Changes in appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Teeth grinding
  • Sensitivity to specific foods
  • Dehydration

These symptoms, on their own, may not indicate a parasitic infection, but if you experience several of these symptoms regularly, it may be time to take matters into your own hands. It may be time to perform a parasite cleanse.

The parasite cleanse is an effective method for temporarily reducing the number of parasites in your body, especially in your digestive system. To perform a parasite cleanse, you simply consume foods, drinks, or supplements with cleansing properties. Doing so will help rid your body of parasitic infections by kicking your bowels into overdrive. No, that doesn’t mean you’ll immediately go to the bathroom - the cleansing foods and drinks aren’t as strong, or fast-acting, as a laxative. Although, you should be aware that you will experience more frequent (than usual) bowel movements throughout the cleansing process. 

Another thing to be aware of is how your current diet is already affecting your digestion. Are you drinking soda and eating chips regularly, or are you drinking water and eating vegetables? Your diet before and during a cleanse will significantly influence the effectiveness of that cleanse, since cleansing involves eating and drinking low sugar, high fiber foods and beverages. Maintaining a healthy diet will ensure that your bowels perform their duties efficiently, and you should only consider doing a parasite cleanse once you’ve gotten your diet in order. 

Assuming your diet is in order, let’s move on to the cleansing process… 

First, you should incorporate some antiparasitic ingredients into your, already nutritious, diet. Some popular ingredients are garlic, honey, pumpkin seeds, and papaya seeds. It is best to consume these ingredients before you perform a parasite cleanse, as they will help to weaken the parasites in your body, making it easier for you to flush them out. And if you’d like to play it safe, try removing grain and sugar from your diet temporarily. That includes sugar from fruit! The reduction in grain and sugar will help your digestive system to work highly efficiently for a short time - long enough for you to complete the parasite cleanse. 

Second, the cleanse! Depending on how quickly you would like to cleanse the parasites from your body, you can either consume cleansing ingredients primarily, or you can gradually implement them into your diet. Here is a list of some antiparasitic, cleansing foods for you to consider:

  • anise
  • barberry
  • berberine
  • black walnut
  • clove oil
  • curled mint
  • goldthread
  • goldenseal
  • grapefruit seed extract
  • propolis
  • oregano oil
  • Oregon grape
  • wormwood

If your having difficulty fitting the above foods into your diet (it’s a drastic change after all), you can also use Parasite Cleanse Capsules. Parasite cleanse capsules will provide you the cleansing nutrients your body requires for the cleansing process in pill form. Easy!

Finally, to prevent serious infections in the future, you should avoid eating raw or undercooked meat and seafood. And that if you travel overseas, you should  avoid drinking unpurified water/ice, and eating fruits without peels or food from street vendors. 

Of course, as I’ve said about other dietary treatments, you should always consider potential side effects. Here are some potential side effects of the parasite cleanse

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • stomach cramps
  • headaches

If you’re taking supplements, such as the Parasite Cleanse Capsules linked earlier in this article, there may be additional side effects of the parasite cleanse. Some supplements, for example, may interfere with prescription medications, or cause issues for children and pregnant women. Also, if you have an autoimmune disorder, are anemic, or suffer from some other kind of chronic health condition, talk to your doctor about the side effects of a parasite cleanse, especially if you are performing it with supplements. It’s always a good idea to check with your doctor before taking healthy-altering supplements, and parasite cleanse capsules are no different. 

However, if you decide to perform the cleanse without supplements, be aware that black walnut, a common ingredient promoted by parasite cleanse practitioners, may cause your DNA to subtly mutate, creating new deficiencies from your old ones. Avoid eating black wall nut if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

More generally, if you are constipated or experience digestive issues regularly, postpone your parasite cleanse until you’ve determined if your current diet is in order. If it is not, then your unhealthy diet may be the cause of digestive discomfort - not parasites. Try eating foods rich in fiber and drinking plenty of water. That should encourage your bowels to function efficiently.

In conclusion, you should be aware of any potential side effects of a parasite cleanse before you perform it on yourself. Ask your doctor if it’s right for you, and if it is, proceed with caution. The parasite cleanse can have health-altering effects. Positive ones at that! And those positive effects make it worth the slight risk of experiencing parasite cleanse side effects. Take some time to consider if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of a parasite infestation, and if the parasite cleanse might be right for you. And if you aren’t sure, ask your doctor.
