Parasites, if you dont know, now you know, nucca

Parasites…. the single most missed factor in health.

What do informed people say?
We know most animals are full of parasites but thankfully dogs, cats and horses are regularly treated, but what about humans?

Dr Hulda Clark, a world authority on parasites, states that “We are heavily parasitized beings”. Our bodies are perfect hosts for parasites providing food and shelter. If they settled outside our skin we would see them and take the necessary precautions.

Threadworms are a common parasite, with up to 4 in 10 children in the UK having threadworms at some stage in their childhood. Threadworms live in the gut and lay eggs around the anus, which causes itching. Children may pass them on to adults living in the same home. Consider this, particularly if there is more than one person in your home with an itchy bottom.

Ann Louise Gittleman in her book, “Guess what came for dinner”, says of parasites “They are insidious because of the common misconception among medical people and the general public that parasites are generally a third world problem where malnutrition and poor hygienic practices exist. Nothing could be farther from the truth.”

It has been estimated, that the average human has about a kilogram of parasites in their body. Worm parasites are more common than most people expect, and they are listed as The Center for Disease Controls number 1 Health Risk. “Hookworms sink their teeth into the intestinal walls of more than a billion people every day to drink their fill of blood.” According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasite infection and not all of these people live in third world countries.

A Scientist at Ohio University in the US stated “It is estimated that pinworms infect more than 400,000,000 people throughout the world and in many areas of the world (e.g. North America and Europe) it is the most common nematode parasite of humans. On a world-wide basis, however, Ascaris lumbricoides ranks number 1 infecting more than 1,000,000,000 people.”

“Ascaris lumbricoides is one of the largest and most common parasites found in humans. The adult females of this species can measure up to 18 inches long (males are generally shorter), and it is estimated that 25% of the world’s population is infected with this nematode. The adult worms live in the small intestine and eggs are passed in the feces. A single female can produce up to 200,000 eggs each day!.”

“Fasciola hepatica is found in parts of the United States, as well as in Great Britain, Ireland, Europe, the Middle East, Far East, Africa, and Australia.”
Can parasites live inside our organs?

Parasites by Location within the body:

Alimentary Tract                            197 species
Cavities, Organs, and Tissues   107 species
Circulatory System                       21  species
Skin and Tissues                           56  species

How Can These Parasites Affect Our Health?

Louise Gittleman says ‘that many unexplained health conditions often disappeared when parasites were eliminated from the body’. These conditions included “environmental illness, skin problems, digestive problems, excessive fatigue, hypoglycaemia, arthritic like pains, long standing obesity, and even depression.”

What are the symptoms of internal parasites?

Possible signs and symptoms of internal parasites:

  • Feel tired most of the time (Chronic Fatigue)
  • Digestive problems
  • Have gastrointestinal symptoms and bulky stools with excess fat in faeces
  • Suffer with food sensitivities and environmental intolerance
  • Developed allergic-like reactions
  • Joint and muscle pains and inflammation often assumed to be arthritis
  • Suffer with anemia or iron deficiency (pernicious anemia)
  • Rashes, weeping eczema, cutaneous ulcers, swelling, sores, papular lesions, itchy dermatitis
  • Suffer with restlessness and anxiety
  • Experience multiple awakenings during the night particularly between 2 and 3 am
  • Grinding your teeth
  • Excessive amounts of bacterial or viral infections
  • Depressed
  • Difficulty gaining or losing weight no matter what you do
  • Just can’t figure out why you don’t feel really great and neither can your doctor
  • Itchy ears, nose, anus
  • Forgetfulness, slow reflexes, gas and bloating, unclear thinking
  • Loss of appetite, yellowish face
  • Fast heartbeat, heart pain, pain in the navel
  • Eating more than normal but still feeling hungry
  • Pain in the back, thighs, shoulders
  • Lethargy
  • Numb hands
  • Burning sensation in the stomach
  • Drooling while sleeping
  • Damp lips at night, dry lips during the day, grinding teeth while asleep
  • Bed wetting
  • Women: problems with the menstrual cycle
  • Men: sexual dysfunction

These are only possible symptoms, so please keep in mind that not everyone that has a few of these symptoms should automatically make the assumption that they are infected. However, if you suspect infection or have been unsuccessfully treated for a problem, it is worth doing some specific parasite cleansing.

How do we become infected?

Everyone is susceptible.

Let’s look at some of the reasons for rising parasitic infections. This list is taken from page 9 & 10 of Louise Gittleman’s book, “Guess What Came to Dinner”:

  • Rise in international travel.
  • Contamination of municipal and rural water supplies.
  • Increasing use of Day-care centres.
  • Influx of refugee and immigrant populations from endemic areas.
  • Return of armed forces from overseas.
  • Continued popularity of household pets.
  • Increasing popularity of exotic regional foods.
  • Use of antibiotics and immunosuppressive drugs.
  • The sexual revolution.
  • The spread of AIDS.

There are four pathways that can be infected:

  • Via food or water which are sources of the roundworm, amoebae, giardia.
  • Through the nose and skin where pinworm eggs and Toxoplasma gondii can be inhaled from contaminated dust, hookworms, schistosomes, and strongyloides can penetrate exposed skin and bare feet.
  • Via a vector – e.g. a mosquito (carrier of dog heartworm, filaria & malaria); a flea (carrier of dog tapeworm); the common housefly (transmits amebic cysts) and the sand fly (carries leishmaniasis).
  • Via sexual contact where partners can transmit trichomonas, giardia, amoebae.

Some food sources are pork, seafood and undercooked meat.

Having too much waste in our bodies, due to improper eating and accumulated toxins leads to low oxygen levels which in turn can lead to parasite infestation. As the body looses oxygen levels, fungus or massive parasites overwhelm the body and this can be a factor or cause in most diseases.

For many centuries mankind has sought the aid of herbs to regain control over waste that has accumulated in the body. Remove the waste and the parasites can be controlled.
