There are many ways to fight parasites, which include natural remedies, dietary changes as well as conventional treatments. Natural remedies work best when combined with a variety of remedies and a healthy diet; and conventional treatments should always be carried out as instructed by a trusted physician.
There are many different types of parasites that can infect the human body and many of them are often hard to detect. Therefore, the best remedies are those that target a wide variety because that will help to ensure that they are eliminated even though they are undetected. Natural remedies are usually able to target a wide variety and can be taken without any side effects.
The key to fighting against parasites is to create an environment within the body wherein they cannot live in. This can be done with dietary changes, such as consuming foods that will not feed the parasites and avoiding foods that do. It is also important to nurture the spirit in order to maintain control of negative emotions and other mental health problems.
1 – Anti-Parasitic Foods
One of the most effective ways to fight parasites is to consume plenty of anti-parasitic foods on a regular basis. These foods will help to weaken, kill and eliminate them gradually. Most anti-parasitic foods begin to work as soon as they enter the body. They generally work on their own as well as in combination with other foods.
Common anti-parasitic foods are garlic, cloves, wormwood, black walnut, aloe vera, ginger and a wide variety of spicy foods. When these foods are consumed in moderation on a regular basis, the parasites will begin to leave or die off. Although there are correct proportions as to how much to take, the proportions are not as important as actually consuming them. The quantities can be started in low amounts and gradually increased in amounts that the body is able to tolerate.
2 – Avoid Foods That Feed Parasites
The next important part is to avoid foods that feed parasites. These are generally foods that are foreign to the body and contribute to a slow digestive system. They also contribute to a filthy buildup along the intestinal walls, which then provides the parasites with the perfect environment wherein they can multiply at a rapid pace.
The worst offenders are foods high in sugar, such as chocolate bars, candy, sodas, baked goods; as well as foods high in unhealthy fats, such as hydrogenated oils and trans-fats. Those who are able to handle animal proteins might be able to consume them in small quantities. Nevertheless, it is best to avoid them in order to speed up the healing process. Cooked foods can also slow the digestive system as they are depleted of living enzymes that help with the digestion and elimination of food.
Most fruits and starchy vegetables can also feed the parasites and should be avoided until the infection is gone. Some of these include bananas, apples and potatoes.
3 – Drink Plenty of Fluids
Fluids are absolutely essential for helping to wash out toxins, dead parasites and other harmful substances that can encourage the invaders to linger around. Water generally works well, but so do hot teas, fresh vegetable juices and lemonades.
Fresh green vegetable juices are generally anti-parasitic and therefore, will not only help to flush them out, but will also help in killing them. Lemon juice with water is a great cleanser that can be taken on an empty stomach first thing in the morning.
There are also many effective herbs and spices, including ginger, cloves, cayenne pepper, turmeric and cinnamon, which can be used to make an anti-parasitic tea.
4 – Cleansing
A parasite cleanse is a very effective strategy for fighting against the invaders as that will not only rid the body of toxins but of them as well. There are many options when it comes to an effective cleanse, and it is up to each individual to decide on what type of cleanse is suitable for them. The length of the cleanse is also up to each individual as a it can be hard on the body and should be done according to what the body is capable of.
Before doing any type of cleanse, it is important to do a vegetable cleanse first. The main portion of the diet should be vegetables, and all animal products, baked goods, junk foods and anything unnatural should be eliminated from the diet. This helps to prepare the body for the actual cleanse and makes it easier for the individual to stick with the program.
A juice fast is a good way to cleanse and nourish the body in order to create that environment wherein the parasites cannot live. When doing a juice fast, however, it is important to refrain from fruit juices because they are high in sugar and more likely to feed the parasites.
A lemonade cleanse is another effective strategy against parasites. A small amount of honey can be added to the drink, but it should be kept in moderation because it is a sugar that can feed the parasites.
5 – Restore Intestinal Flora
Parasites thrive in an environment that consists of bad bacteria. Therefore, in order to fight against them it is important to restore a healthy amount of good bacteria so that the bad bacteria is overtaken and eliminated from the body.
Probiotics, yogurts, kefir, and garlic are some of the foods that can help to create friendly bacteria in the digestive tract.
6 – Massage
A massage can help to increase the blood flow, which helps in delivering the anti-parasitic substances and also washes away the toxins left behind. Reflexology of the hands and feet can help to stimulate and increase the blood flow throughout the whole body. An abdominal massage is helpful for intestinal worms, and a deep muscle massage will help to increase and stimulate the blood flow in the muscle tissues.
7 – Keep Warm
Keeping warm will help to keep the body strong and weaken the parasites because they do not like a warm environment. Warming foods, such as ginger, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and hot peppers are excellent foods to help keep the internal environment warm. Warming herbs and spices can be added into a variety of foods or be steeped in hot water for a delicious anti-parasitic tea.
Taking a hot bath is another great way to warm the body and sweat out the toxins left behind.
Sunshine is one of nature’s natural healers. The rays of the sun not only warm the body, but they also help the body to produce vitamin D. Vitamin D has been shown to help fight against depression and other mental problems that are often associated with parasites.
8 – Conventional Treatments
Conventional parasite treatments are ideal if one has contracted a deadly parasite that is bound to destroy the health of the individual within a matter of days. The reason for this is that conventional treatments are generally targeted to kill and eliminate them efficiently in a short time before they have a chance to kill the host.
The only downfall of conventional treatments, however, is that they are harsh and can cause serious side effects. Nonetheless, they might be the best option in some cases. Due to the harshness of these treatments, they should always be taken as instructed by a qualified health practitioner.
9 – Plenty Of Rest
The fight against parasites can be overwhelming for the body and mind. Not only do they take their toll on the body, but the cleansing and die-off symptoms of parasites are also hard for the body to endure. Therefore, it is important to receive plenty of rest during this time of healing. Taking a short nap at the first sign of fatigue can help to maintain physical and mental strength.
10 – Be Consistent
Sometimes it may take a while for all the parasites to be eliminated from the body. The longer they have been present, the worse the damage and the more difficult it is to eliminate them. Therefore, it is important to stick it out until they have been eliminated and the damage they have caused is healed. For some individuals this can take a few weeks, while for others it can take months and even years until all the damage is healed.
