Parasites usually live within the intestines. And the worst part is that they live there for years, without us knowing. In most cases, they don’t cause any problems. But if you start noticing symptoms, it might be time to perform a parasite cleanse. And yes, parasites are contagious, especially when you don’t have high sanitary and hygiene habits, like hand washing, for example.
Symptoms of parasites
The list of symptoms linked to parasites is extremely long. Some of the conditions are constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, IBS, joint pain, muscle aches, anemia, cravings, skin irritation, rashes, sleep disorders, hyperactivity, fatigue, anxiety, headaches, allergies, runny nose, bad taste in the mouth, acne, fever, vomiting, yeast infections, candida infections, trouble gaining weight (children), and much more. But I want to stress the three common conditions that should sound the alarm.
First, and foremost, we have chronic digestive issues. Your gut cannot heal completely if you harbor parasites. Yes, having digestive problems every once in a while is normal. But if you are suffering from constant problems, like diarrhea, bloating, and gas, it might be time to change something. Consider a parasite cleanse if you suffer from digestive issues despite following a highly alkaline diet rich in good bacteria.
The second panic button is mental distress. That includes anxiety, body aches, eye aches, mood swings, headaches, depression, and similar forms of mental distress. All of these are the result of your body’s inability to produce serotonin due to the parasitic infestation.
Last, but not least, we have autoimmune disorders caused by the constant inflammation of your gut. These include joint pain, muscle aches, muscle spasms, and irritable bowel syndrome.
So, how does one perform a parasite cleanse? Here is a step-by-step guide.
