Parasite cleanse can be a safe and effective natural tool to help cure and treat many of the parasitic infections and problems caused by parasites in humans. As a part of the natural parasite cleanse, parasite supplements, antiparasitic herbs and parasite cleanse products are often used and contribute to many of the parasite cleanse benefits. At the same time however, many of the herbal parasite cleanse products and supplements are poorly made and are the reason for the majority of the parasite cleanse side effects a lot of people experience, or in other cases – the lack of success in the parasite treatment.
Based on our many years of practice and research, working with a large variety of human parasites issues, and after testing hundreds of natural parasite cleanse protocols, remedies, herbs, supplements and products, we bring you our complete natural parasite cleanse protocol and recommendations.

Parasite Cleanse – Common Problems
As a part of our practice and work with intestinal parasites and parasitic infections, we reviewed a large number of different parasite cleanse protocols and products. Next to some well designed all natural parasite cleanse protocols and anti parasite supplements, we have found many issues with herbs and supplements that are used during the parasite cleanse.
Unfortunately, many people experience unpleasant side effects during their parasite cleanse after taking the wrong supplements and herbs for parasites, or due to not using the parasite cleanse supplements properly.
Many parasite cleanse supplements contain harsh and aggressive ingredients that can damage your body and cause serious health complications. Others are not potent enough, use formulas that do not make any sense and are not backed by science. There are many supplements for parasites and antiparasitic herbs that are completely natural; The fact that a supplement is natural however, doesn’t mean it is safe. In fact, we see many cases of people that got severely ill after using natural remedies for parasites, parasite tincture or parasite cleanse teas, and other all natural parasite treatment formulas.
These issues are common also with other popular body cleanse plans such as colon cleanse, candida cleanse, liver detox and heavy metal detox.
The Parasite Cleanse Protocol
Our natural parasite cleanse protocol is very simple and has proven to be very effective:
create a natural environment in the body that is hostile to parasites, while optimizing the body’s ability to remove parasites and their toxins.
Key focus is given to the safety of the protocol as well as to address common nutritional deficiencies that can be caused by many parasitic infections.
These are all achieved by the parasite cleanse 5 steps:
Step 1 – Oxygen Colon Cleanse (intestinal cleanse)
- Detoxify and cleanse your digestive tract from parasites and toxic waste buildup that can feed parasites
- Optimize the body’s natural toxins elimination function
- Minimize healing crises and die off symptoms from the dying parasites during the parasite cleanse.
Step 2 – Parasite Cleanse Diet
- Eliminate foods that can feed parasites, weaken your immune system and body.
- Include anti parasite foods and parasite cleanse recipes using foods that kill parasites naturally in the body.
- Systemic & digestive enzymes help transition to the anti parasite diet by improving digestion and nutrients absorption of the foods, and also breaking down the toxins released by the dying parasites.
Step 3 – probiotics parasite cleanse
- Restore healthy gut flora using probiotic strains that are specifically effective against parasites and parasitic infections
Step 4 – antiparasitic herbs & Supplements
- Anti parasite herbs and supplements that help the body to naturally get rid of parasites
Step 5 -Vitamins, minerals & antioxidants
- Key nutrients required by the body to repair the damage caused by ongoing parasitic infection
- Prevent nutritional deficiencies that are common with ongoing human parasites
- Address free radical damage due to the elevated toxins

Step 1 – The Importance of Colon Cleanse for Parasites Treatment
colon and parasite cleanse
The most important step to do before starting any parasite treatment is to optimize your intestinal tract and toxins elimination functions; a constipated, congested or irritated colon is a breeding ground for intestinal parasites and other pathogens.
No matter what medication, herbal cleanse or supplements you may take, as long as your colon has waste buildup that can feed parasites, you are probably going to have parasites in the colon, and will not be able to get rid of the parasitic infection.
This also applies to natural anti parasitic foods that are recommended for the parasite cleanse diet; waste buildup makes it difficult for the colon to move the foods you eat in a normal pace. As a result, these foods may stay longer in your digestive tract, get rotten, and become toxic.
This critical step of doing a colon cleanse for parasites issues is often overlooked, and is the main reason why many people can’t get rid of their parasitic infection issues. It is also the cause behind the healing crises and the parasite cleanse side effects most people experience during the parasite treatment and intestinal parasite cleanse; it just takes your body too much time removing the dying parasites and their toxins from the intestinal tract.
The bottom line: for most effective parasite cleanse, always cleanse your colon before getting started.
Oxygen Colon Cleanse
Oxygen colon cleanse as its name suggests, uses oxygen in the colon to detoxify and loosen toxins, undigested food particles and waste buildup so they can be flushed out naturally by the body.
It is a very straightforward concept: overtime this waste buildup becomes drier and harder and sticks to the colon wall to a point the body can’t eliminate it through normal bowel movements. The released oxygen loosens this toxic waste, so that the body can easily eliminate it. When your colon is free of all this waste buildup, it can get rid of toxins quicker during your treatment, which can prevent and minimize many of the parasite cleanse side effects a lot of people experience during the intestinal parasite cleanse.
This is done in a completely natural and gentle way, yet it has shown to be very potent and safe.
Doing an oxygen colon cleanse also means that there will be less waste and undigested food particles that can feed parasites. This creates an ideal environment in your body that can encourage friendly probiotic growth while limiting the growth of parasites, candida and other harmful organisms, hence making probiotic supplements much more effective. This is one of the most important benefits of parasite colon cleanse considering that a big part of the parasitic infection occurs in the colon.
Using Oxygen Colon Cleanse for Parasites Cleanse
Oxygen colon cleanse work in a completely different way than fiber, herbal and laxatives colon cleanse products. It is the preferred natural colon cleanse choice of many health practitioners due to its efficiency, ease of use, and safety profile as well as the many benefits of the released oxygen in the digestive tract; Oxygen is one of nature’s most potent natural toxin cleanse and plays a key role in paneutralizing and removing toxins from the body. This is very beneficial during the parasite cleanse where the levels of released toxins are increased.
Oxygen colon cleanse (Oxy-Powder ®) has been a part of our parasite cleanse for a very long time, along with many of our other body cleanse protocols including the candida cleanse, liver detox, and heavy metal detox. We strongly believe it is one of the key factors to our protocols high effectiveness and success, and especially to the low occurrences of parasite cleanse side effects and healing crises during the cleanse (see survey details below).
The progress many people are able to achieve during the 5-10 days of the oxygen colon cleanse is usually very significant. For many, it is the first time after many years they finally feel a relief with their colon parasites symptoms.
Oxy-Powder formula works by using time released oxygen in the entire intestinal tract (25-30 feet) for up to 18 hours, which enables it to detoxify and eliminate large amounts of waste buildup that may have taken many years to accumulate. This effective toxins removal mechanism is also very safe: Oxy powder has been on the market since the late 90’s with millions of people that have already used it.
In a survey with 150 systemic candida patients, participants were asked on their parasite die-off symptoms (herxheimer reaction) during the candida treatment and whether or not oxy-powder was used. Oxy-Powder made a huge difference: only 8% of the patients who used oxy-powder experienced die-off symptoms!
Most people who use Oxy-Powder report a sense of “great relief” that often comes with increased energy, higher clarity, a clearer complexion, and significantly better bowel movements and digestion, with many digestion issues that are common symptoms of parasites such as constipation, bloating, body odor and gas greatly improved. These colon cleanse benefits are not surprising considering that this toxic waste weight may be 10-20 pounds and sometimes even more. When the body gets rid of such a burden, it has more energy and resources to perform better and to actually heal other areas which were neglected before.
Parasite flush, tapeworm cleanse, worm cleanse and others graphical findings
Please note: Many people report seeing dead parasites, parasitic worms and candida in their stool. This is normal: the waste buildup usually feed parasites and other harmful organisms, so when it is removed from the body during the oxygen colon cleanse, they are flushed out as well. This is usually the point where people start to feel a relief from some of the symptoms of parasites they have had, along with other improvements from the cleanse. Another common thing to expect during the oxygen cleanse is temporary watery or gaseous stools with “bubbly” bowel sounds. These are the oxygen bubbles turning the hard waste buildup inside the colon into liquid or gas which enables the body to flush these toxins out more easily.
Step 2 – Parasite Cleanse Diet
Often overlooked, the parasite cleanse diet is a very important part of the parasite cleanse. The main idea behind the antiparasitic diet is to create an environment in the body that is hostile to parasites. This is achieved by:
- Eliminating foods that can feed parasites, weaken your immune system and body, especially high carbs and sugary foods, processed foods, fried foods, sugary beverages, wheat, gluten, grains, dairy, alcohol, and yeast.
- Including anti parasite foods and foods that kill parasites in the body such as garlic and pumpkin seeds. Our popular golden detox energy soup is a great example for a parasite purge recipe that is a very effective parasite remedy. It also tastes great.
- Including colon cleansing foods to optimize toxins and parasite removal from the body. Raw vegetables and fresh low sugar fruits such as lemons, apples and berries are great examples. The famous overnight toxins flush lemonade cleanse is a very good example of easy to make home remedies for parasite cleanse, using natural ingredients such as lemon and raw apple cider vinegar to help detox your body and remove toxins.
- Avoiding foods that are hard to digest such as legumes and beans is also recommended during the parasite cleanse diet. These whole foods can be very healthy in general, but when consumed during the cleanse they may slow your digestion causing the released toxins from the cleanse to stay longer in your body.
- Eating meat, especially raw or not fully cooked meat, pork, or fish (sushi) may increase your risk of getting parasitic infections such as tapeworms and others. During the parasite cleanse it is highly recommended to avoid eating raw meat and minimize the consumption of animal based products.
Parasite cleanse recipe
A great example of a very potent parasite cleanse recipe that also tastes great is our famous colon cleanse salad recipe. This colon cleanse recipe contains powerful anti parasitic foods as well as foods high in insoluble fiber. Once consumed, these foods act as rough brooms inside your colon that can grab accumulated waste buildup, toxins and intestinal parasites on their way out.
In addition to the parasite cleanse – colon cleanse benefits, this recipe is also highly nutritious designed to make you feel happy and satisfied. To learn more, see: the colon cleansing meal your gut would love.
The Candida – Parasite Cleanse Diet
One of the best anti parasite diet is the famous candida diet. Candida is a widely known parasitic fungus that cause many symptoms of parasites, infections and health issues. Over the years we have had excellent results by applying our candida diet protocol to the parasite cleanse diet. For the complete candida diet protocol, see our:
Candida Diet Experts Guide.
Another important factor to consider is your immune system. Boosting your immune system during the parasite cleanse can help the body fight the parasitic infection more effectively and improve your overall health. If you suspect that your immune system may be low, please see our experts guide:
How to Strengthen Immune System Naturally.
Enzymes with The Parasite Cleanse Diet
Adjusting to the parasite cleanse diet usually takes time, especially with foods your body may not be used to. Taking full spectrum digestive enzymes can help with this transition and improve the digestion and nutrients absorption from the foods you eat.
This is especially important for people who already have digestive problems. Digestive issues typically lead to undigested food particles in the digestive tract that can feed parasites and weaken the immune system. This can prevent the body from naturally fighting the parasitic infection and lead to additional problems such as a systemic yeast and candida overgrowth.
Besides the many discomforts and the ongoing stress on the body, having digestion issues may also mean you are not absorbing all the nutrients from the foods you eat. This is one of the biggest concerns of parasitic infections in humans. According to research, parasites can cause nutritional deficiencies such as vitamin b12 (anemia), vitamin A and others (source).
Overtime this can lead to vitamins and minerals deficiencies which can evolve to more serious, sometimes permanent health complications. This is exactly the reason why many health providers recommend their patients to take enzymes supplements; coupled with proper dietary changes, it is a very effective way that can significantly promote healthy digestion while helping the body to naturally balance the parasitic infection.
Systemic & Digestive Enzymes with The Parasite Cleanse
There are 2 groups of enzymes that are very beneficial during the parasite detox cleanse:
Digestive enzymes break down the foods we eat into their smaller building blocks to enhance their absorption and uptake by the body. You can eat the healthiest foods in the world, but without sufficient digestive enzymes, your body may not absorb all the nutrients from the foods you eat.
The main reason systemic enzymes are recommended during the treatment for parasites, is due to their ability to digest and break down toxins released by the dying parasites. Helping the body to process and eliminate the increased toxins during the parasite cleanse can make a big difference in the way you feel, and also make the cleanse much more effective.
In addition to help the body get rid of parasites toxins, systemic enzymes are essential for good overall health; ongoing tasks such as waste removal, immune system support, tissue repair, organs regeneration, inflammation reduction and others depend on having enough systemic enzymes in your body.
We recommend taking systemic and digestive enzymes during the early stages of the parasite cleanse where you are still adjusting to the anti parasite diet and the treatment, as well as in cases of digestion issues. This is the point where enzymes truly shine and provide the most benefits by promoting healthy digestion and optimal nutrients uptake despite the transition to a new diet with foods you may not used to. Having sufficient levels of systemic enzymes at this stage of the treatment is also very beneficial, since it can help the body to better handle the high levels of toxins released by the dying parasites.
Best Enzymes for Parasites Cleanse
Taking enzymes supplements to help the body get rid of parasites toxins and to promote healthy digestion is very popular and widely used as a part of the parasite detox.
When choosing enzymes supplements for parasites cleanse however, it is important to make sure the products provide the following features:
- The enzymes that are included in the formula should support the digestion of the foods you include in your parasite cleanse diet, since different enzymes are required to digest different type of foods. The product label should clearly describes which enzymes are included in the formula and which foods they help to digest
- The formula should only contain plant based enzymes with no animal/animal by-products ingredients. Plant based enzymes are a much better choice in terms of potency, stability in the body and purity
- All enzymes should be wide pH range, which means they are designed to work throughout the entire digestive tract
VeganZyme ® is our preferred choice for a multi-enzymes supplement during the parasite cleanse. It has been a very important part of our candida and liver cleanse protocols as well, especially for people who already have digestion issues or food sensitivities.
The biggest advantage we see in VeganZyme has to do with its versatile formula. With a total of 20 digestive and systemic enzymes, it is designed to support the digestion of a wide variety of foods making it ideal for many different diets, cuisines, and health conditions.
VegamZyme systemic enzymes profile is highly diverse as well, and can effectively break down parasites by-products, yeast, mucus, allergens and other toxins.
To get these benefits, you usually have to combine multiple enzymes supplements which can make things complicated with more pills to take and more things that can get wrong, such as potential interactions between different formulas we see quite often, or not including all the needed enzymes.
In terms of quality and stability, VeganZyme formula uses plant based wide pH range enzymes, that are highly stable in the body, are not destroyed by the stomach acid and can work throughout your entire digestive tract and body.
Most people feel the improvements from veganZyme within a matter of days: feeling “light” after meals, having more energy, less digestion issues and better bowel movements. If your parasite symptoms include digestive issues such as gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux or food sensitivities, VeganZyme may provide a significant improvement and relief from these discomforts.
Eating out While on the anti parasite dietOne of the things we love about VeganZyme is that it keeps things simple:
its formula supports the digestion of a wide variety of foods, including foods that are harder to digest. This means that dining out or eating larger variety of foods that may not always be ideal while on the parasite cleanse, can still be well managed by taking 1-3 capsules before your meals.
This makes the anti parasite diet much more reasonable and easier to follow, and for many people it also means that they can stay on the plan until they are completely healed.
Step 3 – Probiotics Parasite Cleanse
Taking probiotics during parasite cleanse is a very important part of the intestinal parasite treatment considering that 70% of the immune system resides in the gut. Probiotics supplements work by populating the intestines with “good” bacteria that help your body fight the “bad” bacteria, parasites and other harmful organisms such as worms, candida yeast, and viruses.
When using probiotics supplements for intestinal parasites, it is important to make sure the probiotic strain that is included in the product is effective for parasites. Many of the probiotic products on the market can provide many health benefits, however they are not specifically designed to treat intestinal parasites and therefore may not be the best fit for the parasite cleanse.
Best Probiotics During The Parasite Cleanse
For the most probiotics parasite cleanse benefits, it is best to use probiotics probiotic strains that:
Probiotic Strain is effective against parasites
During the parasite cleanse, we highly recommend to focus on probiotic strains known to be effective against intestinal parasites and other pathogens. A probiotic supplement is going to be as good as the probiotic strains used in its formula, so it is important to make sure the probiotic strains used are backed up by science as effective against parasites, but on the other hand safe and not too aggressive. Many people are surprised to learn their probiotics supplements caused side effects such as bloating, gas (flatulence), constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain and even acne. In some cases, the reaction was so severe, that they had to stop the parasite treatment!
The fact that a probiotic strain can kill parasites is not enough; it also has to work in a gentle and safe way in order to help the body balance the parasitic infection at a rate your body can handle.
Stable probiotic strain
Another important factor to consider has to do with stability. The probiotic strains need to be stable inside and outside your body: inside the body so they can survive the stomach acids, as well as stable outside the body with a solid shelf life profile; many probiotic strains must be kept refrigerated and by the time you get them lose their strength significantly; other may be potent at the time of manufacturing, but lose their strength due to low stability or poor manufacturing methods; to avoid these common scenarios, it is essential to choose probiotic strains with a solid stability properties from a trusted source.
The Bacillus laterosporus strain for the Parasite Cleanse
The Bacillus laterosporus BOD strain is a good example of a probiotic strain that was shown in research to be very effective in eliminating many pathogens such as candida, Salmonella, E-Coli, and Streptococcus Faecalis. Other testings have confirmed it is completely safe with no indications of toxicity, even at extremely high dosage.
The Bacillus laterosporus strain has a natural ability to encapsulate itself when exposed to different environment changes (spore-bearing), and as such it is highly stable, resilient, can easily pass the stomach acids and becomes very active in the body. The fact that it is stable in room temperature and doesn’t need to be refrigerated means you can take it with you wherever you go.
It also promotes healthy digestion: in one study, participants who took Bacillus laterosporus BOD, reported significant relief to many digestion discomforts they previously had.
The Bacillus Laterosporus BOD product we have been testing and using as a part of our parasites and candida protocol is Latero-Flora and it is our preferred choice of probiotics during the parasite cleanse. Latero-Flora potency and effectiveness are specifically guaranteed by the manufacturer, and it comes with a complete 180-day money back guarantee.
Step 4 – Antiparasitic Herbs & Supplements for Parasite Cleanse
how to eliminate parasites using herbs
Antiparasitic herbs and supplements are widely used as part of the parasite cleanse and in many cases can be very effective in helping the body to get rid of parasites naturally.
Parasite cleanse herbs and supplements however, can also backfire if not used correctly.
One of the biggest problem we see with anti parasite herbal supplements, is that many of them contain aggressive herbs or even harsh chemicals that are not safe and can cause serious damage to your body and vital organs.
Using herbs that kill parasites may offer many parasite cleanse benefits; the anti parasite supplements you use however, need to be safe as well.
Parasite Cleanse Side Effects
Many symptoms during parasite cleanse occur when using aggressive parasite cleanse products and anti parasite supplements to kill parasites in your body as quick as possible. This usually lead to many issues; your body may not be able to handle the high increased load of toxins released by the dying parasites. When this happens, you experience what is widely known as a healing crisis, herxheimer reaction, die-off reaction, or parasite die off symptoms.
Parasite die off symptoms
Parasite die off symptoms occur when the parasites start to die during the parasite cleanse. As a result, toxins and endotoxins like products are released into the body. When this happens too quickly, you feel sick due to the high load of toxins in your body. Parasite die off symptoms can be overwhelming and may include: anxiety, brain fog, chills, digestive and GI problems such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas, fatigue and weakness, fever, joints, muscle and body aches and pain, headaches, skin rashes, skin itching and skin sores, excess mucus production and many more.
This is a common misconception: many people believe that having a healing crises during the para cleanse is a sign that the parasite cleanse is working. What it actually means however, is that the amount of toxins released by the dying parasites is more than what your body can safely handle. The high level of toxins can put a lot of stress on your internal organs, especially the colon, liver and kidneys that are involved in filtering toxins in the body. This often leads to many unnecessary side effects that can delay your progress and even damage your body.
Best Herbs for the Parasites Cleanse
Anti parasite supplements and natural parasite remedies typically include a combination of antiparasitic herbs designed to kill intestinal parasites in the body. The core of most herbal parasite cleanse formulas is a combination of 3 herbs: black walnut, wormwood and cloves, which are considered the best herbs that kill parasites.
Using the green hull of black walnut (juglans nigra) and wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) for parasites has a very long traditional use, with research data and studies confirming black walnut and wormwood natural antiparasitic properties as well.
Using cloves for parasites (clove bud) is widely known for the ability of clove to inhibit parasite eggs and larvae in the body. Parasites can lay hundreds of thousands eggs each night, so destroying parasites eggs is essential in order to stop the parasite life cycle. For this reason, make sure clove buds are always included in the anti parasite cleanse formula.
How to Choose the Best Parasite Cleanse Herbs
During our many years of research, we have tested hundreds of antiparasitic herbs, parasite supplements and herbal remedies for parasites.
We have found that the best parasite cleanse products always follow the same common principles. We also see a very clear connection between negative parasite cleanse reviews or parasite cleanse side effects people experienced to common issues found in many anti parasite formulas and products.
For the best parasite cleanse, here are our guidelines when using anti parasite supplements and herbs for parasite cleanse:
Only Choose Wildcrafted or Organic Parasite Cleanse Herbs
For the best natural parasite cleanse, go organic or wildcrafted from a trusted source.
Organic parasite cleanse herbal extracts are usually more potent, safe and reliable compared to conventional non-organic ones. One of the biggest concerns with conventional extracts, is that many of them contain high levels of toxins, pesticides, preservatives and allergens that can cause a strong reaction and side effects. These toxins can make you feel bad, and even lead to further health complications.
The Source of the Antiparasitic Herbs Matters
The second factor to consider is the source and purity of the antiparasitic herbs used. This is a critical point since many parasite cleanse products use low quality antiparasitic herbs that barely have any active ingredients in them! Other parasite formulas use very low quantities. This is the main reason why many people do not get any benefits from their parasite cleanse.
Ideally, the herbs should be fresh, potent and safe. Always select a product from a trusted source that is committed to high quality ingredients. Product should include specific details about each of the ingredients used, their source and potency.
Watch for High Number of Ingredients
This is so important, it is actually relevant to any supplement you may take. Many parasite supplements and body cleanse products contain a lot of ingredients. Consuming many ingredients in order to get rid of parasites is unnecessary and often causes many side effects due to interactions between the different ingredients in the product.
Furthermore, based on our extensive research on parasite cleanse products, when you see a big list of antiparasitic herbs and ingredients, it usually indicates that the quantities used for each herb is too low, or that low quality of herbs are used.
For the best parasite cleanse results, go for quality and not quantity! we highly recommend to keep things simple and stick with the top antiparasitic herbs that have a long history of traditional use and that are also backed up by science. The wormwood black walnut clove herbal parasite cleanse combination is a great example. These are considered the best herbs for intestinal parasites in terms of both effectiveness and safety.
The Duration of the Parasite Cleanse Protocol
The life cycle of human parasites varies and can take anywhere between several weeks to months from the egg phase to the adult parasite phase. For this reason, it is important to be on the parasite cleanse long enough in order to keep killing parasites throughout their entire life cycle. This part is often overlooked, with many parasite cleanse products and protocols that only last 7 day cleanse, 10 day parasite cleanse or even 30 day parasite cleanse.
This simply means, that even if you use the best parasite cleanse herbs, if your cleanse is too short, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to completely get rid of your parasites problem. You may succeed in removing parasites from the body while on the cleanse, only to see many of the parasite symptoms keep coming back a few months later as the “new generation” of the parasites grow.
Our Recommended Herbal Parasite Cleanse
Paratrex ® is our preferred choice for the natural parasite cleanse herbal formula. It is one of the best natural parasite cleanse we have tested in terms of potency, yet it is also very gentle and safe.
Paratrex organic parasite cleanse formula contains the green hull of black walnut clove wormwood antiparasitic herbs from organic and wildcrafted source, along with selected systemic enzymes that help the body break down and handle the released toxins from the dying parasites. The formula is designed to create an environment in the body where the parasites can’t live while optimizing the body’s ability in removing parasites and their toxins.
You should take Paratrex for 6 weeks followed by a 2 weeks break. During the 2 weeks break, evaluate the improvements made and issues that may still present. If you still have health concerns or symptoms of parasites after the 2 weeks break, you should continue with additional 4 weeks on – 2 weeks off protocol as long as you see consistent improvements.
Many people that use Paratrex report improvements in many of the classic symptoms of parasites during the first 2 weeks of the parasite cleanse: less digestive issues such as bloating and gas, higher energy levels, mental clarity and better skin complexion. A big part of the paratrex parasite cleanse reviews mentioned that they could physically identify parasitic worms in their stool while on paratrex.
Step 5 – Vitamins, Minerals & Antioxidants During the Parasite Cleanse
One of the biggest problems with parasites in humans is that intestinal parasites can cause malabsorption of many vital nutrients (source). This connection between human parasites and dangerous nutritional deficiencies such as vitamin b12 (anemia), vitamin A and others has been suggested by many studies (source), and should always be addressed during the treatment for intestinal parasites.
The concern with vitamins and minerals deficiencies is that long term deficiencies can cause severe health issues. Some issues such as nerve and brain damage due to vitamin b12 deficiency may not be reversed even after restoring the levels of the b12. Sufficient levels of vitamin D for example, are critical in order for the immune system to fight various infections and kill many types of parasites, bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
This can be an easy or unfortunately for many people, a much more painful lesson – when it comes to vitamins and minerals deficiencies it is much easier to prevent than to treat a health issue already developed
Get Tested For Key Vitamins, Minerals Deficiencies
As a part of your parasite cleanse, we highly recommend to work with your doctor and get tested for these common key vitamins and minerals deficiencies:
Antioxidants During the Parasite Cleanse
Natural antioxidants extracts such as CoQ10, PQQ, resveratrol, and astragalus are commonly used in order to protect the internal organs and cells from the damage caused by the toxins released by the dying parasites.
It is much easier to prevent the damage, than treating internal organ dysfunction once developed.
When taking antioxidants, the recommendation is to only use natural antioxidants extracts that are backed by science; a good example can be found here.
The science about antioxidants is quite fascinating; antioxidants have been shown in thousands of studies to benefit the health of our DNA, brain, memory, heart and many internal organs functions; as research suggests, antioxidants can promote the health and longevity of every cell in the human body.
We should note that many medical professionals take antioxidants themselves every day due to the strong science on their health, anti-aging and disease prevention benefits.
Parasite cleanse for humans: Lifestyle, Family & Pets
Many parasitic infections are very contagious, so it is very common for family members to reinfect each others. For this reason, it is recommended for the entire household to do the parasite cleanse at the same time if possible. This is especially important in the following cases:
Pinworm infection & Children
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), 50% of children under 18 and people who take care of infected children may get a highly contagious parasitic infection caused by pinworms also known as Threadworms (source).
When it comes to parasite cleanse for children, we highly recommend to consult with your doctor before doing parasite cleanse for kids.
Pets & Parasites
Parasitic infections and parasitic worms are common in pets, many of them can pass to humans. To reduce the chance of reinfection, it is very important to have your pets checked by the veterinarian when you do the parasite cleanse.
If you have a cat, you may want to specifically test your cat for a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii). T. gondii can cause the Toxoplasmosis disease, which in many cases do not cause any symptoms in cats but can pass to humans. People who have cats may get it when cleaning the cat’s litter box. According to the CDC, more than 60 million people in the United States may be infected with the Toxoplasma parasite (source).
Always wash your hands after touching or playing with your pet, especially before eating, drinking or preparing food. While this sounds obvious to many people, licking or kissing our pets we love may come with a price, so if you are concerned about parasitic infections, you may want to reconsider.
If you have a pet, these guidelines need to be taken into consideration in addition to your parasite cleanse for the best parasite cleanse for humans who love their pets. 🙂
International and frequent travelers
Family members and your significant others who travel often may also infect the other household members, especially if the destination include undeveloped countries. For this reason, many people time their parasite cleanse along with the travel (source).
Parasite symptoms in humans are very common, although in many cases the parasitic infection is not always identified as the cause of these symptoms. The symptoms of parasites are then treated individually without any parasite treatment done in order to address the parasitic infection in the body. The results: recurrent symptoms that can’t be explained that are keep coming back. Common signs and symptoms of parasites may include:
|Affected Areas||Parasite symptoms|
|Digestive issues||Gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting.|
|Abdominal pain||Upset stomach, stomach cramps, stomach pain, tenderness.|
|Stool||Greasy loose stool, worms, parasites, mucus, eggs or candida yeast in stool.|
|Eating||Cravings for sweets, constantly hungry, increased or loss of appetite.|
|Energy, wellbeing||Feeling tired, fatigue, exhaustion, mood swings and depression, muscle and joint pain, body aches.|
|Skin||Skin rashes and skin issues such as eczema, hives, rosacea.|
|Sleep||Poor sleep, insomnia, nightmares, night sweats, teeth grinding in sleep, anus itching at night.|
|Genitals||Vaginal itching around the vulva, anal itching, rash, vaginal infections.|
|Overall health||Unexplained weight loss or weight gain, nutritional deficiencies, dehydration, fever.|
