One expert says, "It isn't a matter of IF you have parasites, just a matter of what kinds and how many of them you have". The most common symptoms of a parasite infection include: constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, joint and muscle aches, anemia, allergies, skin conditions, tumors, nervousness, sleep disorders, teeth grinding, chronic fatigue, and immune dysfunction. These symptoms are listed as the most common, but a wide range of health complaints have been medically linked to parasites, making it difficult to compile a list of the "most common ailments". If a comprehensive list were to be made, it would contain almost every medical condition in the medical library! However, symptoms of parasite infection may not always be obvious. One of the top 10 parasites commonly acquired are tapeworms, yet infestation often causes no symptoms at all! How creepy is that!
How Did I Get That Parasite?
We can get parasites from contaminated food or water, but don't assume it only occurs from undercooked pork or low-grade sushi. The very healthy fruits and vegetables you eat may have parasite eggs lurking on them. Did you know certain parasites can lay as many as 200,000 eggs in one day? You can also acquire parasites from sexual contact. Parasites, or their eggs, usually enter the body through the mouth, nose and eyes, but can also enter through abrasions in the skin and will even burrow into your skin! Other risks for parasite infestation include: walking with bare feet, improper disposal of feces, lack of hygiene, physical contact with an infected person, or playing with your favorite pet. We all love furry, little puppies, but approximately 240 diseases can be spread from animals to humans through parasites.
Detoxification of Parasites
It is commonly believed that special herbal detox programs and various natural treatments like the famous zappers will get rid of any acquired parasites. The issue with these types of treatments is that parasites are not a simple object in the intestine that can be flushed out. They are living organisms that will fight to survive extermination. Dr. DeHaan is trained in Naturopathic Medicine and Herbology. He has tried every cleanse, combination and gadget created for parasite detox. Over the years he discovered that while these parasite cleansing programs and techniques do help pass worms and parasites, they generally do not RID the body of them. When you see parasites in the toilet or moving down the colonic tube, it means you did eliminate some parasites. However, if it leaves a few eggs behind, you really didn't gain much ground. In addition, Dr. DeHaan frequently found parasites in the glands and deep tissues of the body, even the nervous system where they aren't supposed to be, according to the CDC.
