How Can I Tell IF I Have a Parasite?By Alane Stieglitz, ND, CNC


It doesn’t take a trip to a third-world country to obtain parasites. Quite the contrary! They can enter your body through contaminated water, undercooked meat, even contaminated fruits and vegetables may be a host for parasites. A parasite is an organism that lives and feeds off another organism. For example, parasites living in your intestines are feeding off your nutrition!

These parasites come in all shapes and sizes and cause quite an array of problems. Some parasites may consume the food you eat and leave you feeling hungry after a meal. Others may feed off your red blood cells and cause anemia, while others lay eggs and cause itching and even insomnia. The most common intestinal parasites are tapeworms and hookworms, which live in the small intestine.

Cryptosporidium is caused by water which has been contaminated by animal or human feces.  Parasites cause many upset tummies during the summer months in pools because crypto can live in chlorinated water for up to 10 days. When children swallow pool water, they ingest the crypto parasite, which can cause nausea, diarrhea, and stomach cramps; however, it will usually go away on its own in healthy children and adults. Knowing whether or not you have a parasite is the best situation for people suffering from GI symptoms. Pinworms can be passed to other people easily and live on bedding and clothing; therefore testing and getting healthy could prevent your entire household from dealing with the same issue!
