Biology regards parasitism as a non-mutual relationship between species, where one species benefits at the expense of the other party. The one reaping benefits is called the parasites, and the other one the host. Traditionally the term parasite referred to an organism visible to the naked eye. However, as science progressed, the term was extended to cover protozoa, viruses, and bacteria.
Parasites, unlike predators, do not kill their host typically. They usually spend their life time attached to the host, leaching off of him and reproducing. They can cause significant damage, from reducing energy and fitness, to making their host infertile, or even causing death.
Opposite to a widespread belief, parasites are not a disease of unhygienic people. Parasites can affect even the most hygienic individuals, most often with no warning signs for a long period of time. For example, even by just being outdoors you expose yourself to millions of parasites, and once you catch one of them they can prove extremely difficult to get rid of.
In order to notice the parasite on time and prevent it from causing any significant or permanent damage here are some warning signs:
- Chronic fatigue
- Iron deficiency
- Appetite loss
- Constant yeast infections
- Bleeding gums
- Respiratory issues (difficulty breathing)
- Drooling during sleep
- Grinding teeth during sleep
- Anxiety and suicidal thoughts
- Acne, lesions, hives, sores, and other skin conditions
- Menstrual issues with women
- Erectile dysfunction
- Sore joints
- Digestive problems
- Sugar cravings
- Sudden food allergies and sensitivities
- Prolonged periods of diarrhea
If you exhibit most of these signs you should definitely schedule an appointment with your doctor. However, if you notice just a couple of them, maybe you should try going the natural route. Some of the natural ingredients that can help fight parasites are:
Ginger helps your organism by giving it a natural gases a boost, which makes them lethal to any parasites, especially Candida and tapeworm types.
Turmeric has been the talk of the town in recent years, and it is often referred to as the magic spice. It is packed with antioxidants which aid in ending infections for good.
Black walnut’s green hulls
Even though the use of walnut hulls might seem unorthodox, you should keep in mind that they are packed with tannin. This mineral is known as organic iodine. When ground, black walnut green hulls find massive success in killing parasites, and they have been used for millennia.
With its strong antibiotic properties, garlic excels in shutting down infections, and in killing fungi and bacteria. Allicin, garlic’s active ingredient is the one responsible for that, and it is most effective when garlic cloves are crushed.
Products such as kefir, yogurt, and sauerkraut improve the population and strength of your natural gut bacteria. This makes healthy gut bacteria able to fight off any potential danger, such as infections and parasites.
Caryophyllene is the compound found in cloves responsible for killing parasites, and their larvae in the bloodstream.
Cucumber seeds are highly effective against tapeworms, due to their unique content.
Raw pumpkin seeds
Natural fats and curcurbitin are what kills parasites and their offspring, and raw pumpkin seeds are packed with both of these elements.
