Parasitic infections can compromise our health in many ways.  They not only rob our bodies of critical nutrients but the toxins they produce play havoc with our immune system.

DIETARY GUIDELINES

REMOVE

  • All refined grains and carbohydrates including white flour products, white rice, breads, pasta, cornbread, corn tortillas, crackers, popcorn.  These refined carbohydrates create sugars in our body that parasites love to feed on.
  • Simple sugars such as common table sugar, fructose, sweets, cookies, candy, ice cream, pastries, honey, artificial sweeteners, fruit juice, soda pop, alcoholic beverages. Anything that tastes sweet.
  • Temporarily avoid coffee.
  • All raw fish.

ADD

  • Periodically consume Curry meals which contain turmeric and other spices that are highly anti-parasitic.
  • lighterliving ™ Probiotic bars to re-establish healthy intestinal bacteria
  • Add spices like anise, cloves, olive leaf, oregano, propolis, thyme, barberry
  • Make your body slightly acidic by including grapefruit, pumpkin seeds, figs, garlic, apple cider vinegar, cranberry juice and pomegranates in your diet.

TESTING

  • Gastrointestinal Effects/Parasite Stool Testing should be done by your physician. It will check for parasites via DNA and is 100% accurate. 

SUPPLEMENTS AND HERBS

  • Use a colon cleanse
  • One lighterliving ™ Probiotic Bar a day can help recolonize the intestinal tract with healthy bacteria.
  • Add a multi-vitamin supplement to boost your immune system.

NATURAL TREATMENT OPTIONS

  • Jerusalem oak can help expel roundworms, hookworms, and tape worms.
  • Garlic-Allicin, the active component of garlic is effective against pinworms.
  • Wormwood tea has been long used in China and Europe for treatment of pinworms.
  • Black Walnut Hulls juice can help with ringworm, athlete's foot, and cracks in the palms and feet.

CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT OPTIONS

If you are very sick with a parasite infection see your doctor who will probably prescribe medications like diloxanide, furazolidine, iodoquinol, mebendazole, metronidazole, and praziquantel. If you are suffering from severe diarrhea you should see your doctor.

 LIFESTYLE

  • Most fresh waters, located near human habitation are polluted with parasites so do not be shocked to find that you have been infected.
  • Be sure that all meat, chicken and fish are cooked thoroughly.
  • Don't use a microwave to cook meat, chicken or fish.  Microwaves often don't heat foods completely.
  • Wash all fruits and vegetables in clean water before eating, to prevent possible roundworm and whipworm infection.
  • Always wash your hands, kitchen counters and utensils with hot soapy water after cutting or handling raw meat, chicken or fish.
  • Always wear shoes or slippers to prevent hookworm infection.
  • Do not use water from septic tanks or other potentially contaminated sources to water vegetables.
  • Contain and discard all fecal matter.
  • Teach children to wash their hands after going to the toilet, playing outside and before preparing or eating food.
  • If you have parasites, you can reduce the likelihood of passing them on to others by carefully washing your hands after having bowel movements and cleaning the genital area before having sex.
  • Wear gloves when changing the cat box.  Deworm your pets periodically.
  • Avoid swallowing river, stream or lake water when swimming in them.
