Parasite Cleanse Diet – Foods To Eat And Foods To Avoid

parasite cleanse

There is a variety of parasites that can infect humans. Most people believe that they could never have a parasite living in their gut. No matter how clean you think your lifestyle is, you can still be infected. They are most commonly transmitted through contaminated water during international travels, our pets, and raw meat and fish. They cause symptoms like constipation, fatigue, bloating and abdominal pain.

What are parasites?

Parasites are organisms that live on or in a host (animal or human) and feed off it. About 50% of people carry parasites without knowing, and they attribute their symptoms to different illnesses. Parasitic infections can cause diseases so they must be eliminated right away. The most common infections are from roundworms, tapeworms, pin worms, hookworms and whipworms. If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have a parasite infection:

Signs that you have parasites

  • Persistent traveler’s diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea
  • Gas
  • Itchy anus (from a pinworm infection)
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Constant hunger
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sugar cravings
  • Iron-deficiency anemia
  • Migraines
  • Skin rashes

The parasite cleanse

The only efficient way to kill parasites and worms is to go through a parasite cleanse. There are medications available to control an infection, like Albendazole and Mebendazole. If you prefer a natural approach to kill the parasites, certain herbs and supplements can be taken along with a strict parasite detox diet. There are specific ingredients you must look for in a natural anti-parasite treatment:

  • Black walnut
  • Wormwood
  • Clove
  • Oregano oil
  • Grapefruit seed extract
  • Olive leaf

You can find products that contain all those ingredients or you can visit your local health food store and buy them individually. You should do 3 weeks on, 1 week off, and repeat this protocol 2 more times. This will allow you to kill all cycles of the parasites, adults and eggs.

Some people may want to do a complete body cleanse to ensure all the worms are out. Fasting is a great way to control a parasitic infection, by simply starving them. A 7 day detox and colon cleanse is effective at killing most adult parasites that are living in the gut. Consuming bentonite clay and psyllium husk during the fast, and performing daily enemas (colon cleansing) will help flush out the worms from the colon.

The parasite diet

As Dominique from Omdetox says, While the cleanse is an important part of the treatment, a detox program is even more essential. In order to eliminate all worms, you must stop feeding them. Avoiding all sugars and processed food is strongly recommended. Also, parasites usually live in a toxic environment, creating bacterial imbalances in your gut. It is usual to experience a candida overgrowth when we are infected with parasites. Getting rid of it is primordial.

All industrial sugars should be avoided during the detox diet, even fruits. Remember that this is just for a short period of time. You can start eating fruits again once the cleanse is over.  Fruits should be an important part of a healthy diet, so you should only avoid them for the purpose of the cleanse. Processed food and junk should also be avoided. They contribute to an acidic body and do not promote a strong immune system. You should aim for food that are highly nutritious, to boost immune health. This type of diet will not only help to kill parasites, it will also help control a Candida Albicans overgrowth.

Certain foods are known for their anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties. You should include them in your daily detox meal plan. Blend them in a smoothie, use them in your salad dressing, use them to spice up your meals or just snack on them.
