Uh Oh, I Might Have a Parasite.. Now What?
Parasites have a long tradition of living amongst healthy thriving organisms, and they are not about to give that up. At least not without a fight.
Some examples of parasites include roundworms, tapeworms, pin worms, whip worms, and hookworms. Parasites come in so many different shapes and sizes, and they can cause a broad range of problems. Some parasites consume the food you have just eaten, leaving you feeling hungry after every meal and unable to gain weight. Other parasites feed off of your red blood cells, causing anemia. Some parasites lay eggs that can cause itching, irritability, and even insomnia. If you have tried countless approaches to heal your gut and relieve your symptoms without any success, a parasite could be the underlying cause for many of your unexplained and unresolved symptoms.
Parasites can enter your body through contaminated food and water. Under cooked meat is a common place for parasites to hide. Other places are contaminated water from underdeveloped countries and local lakes, ponds, and creeks. Unclean or contaminated fruits and vegetables can have a parasite hiding. Some parasites can even enter the body by traveling through the bottom of your feet.
