You may have heard about the no sugar, including no fruit, diet as being effective against parasites and candida. Although there is some truth to that, it is not a good idea to avoid all fruits. I’ve tried the no-fruit diet and it can leave you feeling pretty low. At the same time, not all fruits are the same, and if you consume the wrong fruits in large quantities you could end up potentially feeding the parasites. The best fruits for a parasite cleansing juice include pineapple, pomegranate, papaya, oranges and berries.
Anti-parasitic fruits are not only safe to take, but they will also support the parasite cleansing process.
Anti-parasitic fruits basically help to build the immune system, which in turn helps the body to naturally eliminate them. Pineapple and papaya also contain a special enzyme that breaks down and destroys various types of parasites. Fruit contains a lot of water and fiber, both of which can help to loosen stool and eliminate toxins from the body. This is very important during parasite cleansing.
At the same time, it is still important to consume plenty of greens on a daily basis in order to provide the body with proper nutrition. Fruit is more cleansing, while vegetables are more nourishing. And believe it or not, your body needs a lot of nourishing especially during a cleanse. In addition, green vegetables are also very good at fighting parasites as they are bitter to taste. Parasites and bitterness simply do not get along.
Here are some of the best anti-parasitic fruits for you to enjoy if you are on a parasite cleanse. You can mix these fruits in with unsweetened yogurt, in a green smoothie or into a powerful parasite cleansing juice. Not only will they help to target the parasites, but the fruit will also make the drinks easier to down.
Pineapple is highly touted for the bromelain it contains. It basically helps to dissolve the protective layer around the parasites and weakens them so they have to leave the body. Bromelain is also very good for breaking down food and moving it along, thus preventing it from potentially feeding any unwanted bacteria or parasites.
Pineapples go great in salads, including cooked and raw. They are great if mixed in with some yogurt or blended into smoothies.
Papaya also contains bromelain and works in the same way that pineapple does. In addition to consuming the flesh, you can also use the seeds in your diet to help kill parasites. As a matter of fact, the seeds are a lot more potent than the flesh itself. They have a spicy and peppery taste that prevents parasites from feeding.
Papaya seeds go great in salad dressings as they provide a nice pungent flavor.
The pomegranate is another healthy fruit that you can add to your anti-parasitic diet. It is slightly bitter or astringent, another taste that repels parasites. In addition, it is high in vitamin C, which naturally boosts the immune system.
Pomegranates contain many small arils, which can be quite time-consuming to get at if you’ve never opened a pomegranate before. However, the extra work is well worth it. You can juice the arils to separate the seeds or blend them up whole in your smoothies. The seeds in the center are bitter to taste making them a perfect weapon against parasites as well.
Oranges are also high in vitamin C and other nutrients that help cleanse and build up the immune system. Orange juice can be added to a variety of anti-parasitic juices to help neutralize the bitterness.
Blackberries, blueberries and strawberries all contain substances that attack a number of parasites. Blueberries are super high in antioxidants and other nutrients that can help to maintain good mental health during parasite cleansing. All three berries are high in vitamin C.
Last but not least, lemon juice is superb for fighting parasites. Half a lemon mixed with water and taken in the morning will help to get the cleansing process going. You can actually go a lemonade cleanse for 3-7 days or longer in order to expel parasites from your system.
Adding the above anti-parasitic fruits to your daily diet will help to increase your power against many types of parasites. If adding them into a parasite cleansing juice, make sure to mix them in with greens in order to maintain a healthy balance.
