The ideal environment for parasites to live and grow in our bodies is promoted by a diet that includes refined carbohydrates (sugar), raw fish (sushi), undercooked meat (specifically pork) and even inadequately washed fruit and vegetables.
Parasites can cause health
problems such as bloating, cramps, diarrhea, allergies, anal itching,
anemia, low immune system, mucus or blood in stools and even affect your
mood with anxiety or depression. Picking them up is easier than you
think: restaurants with poor hygiene, holidays abroad with impure water,
pets and animals.
Below is a list of 10 foods that can help
keep these little beasts at bay so include them in your diet to get rid
of parasites naturally:
1. Pumpkin & Sunflower Seeds
For the freshest pumpkin seeds, remove the seeds from your pumpkin and
expose them to air for a few days to dry them out and eat them raw fist
thing each morning.
Or if you like you can then bake them at 150c
for 30 minutes with your favourite cold pressed oils and seasonings such
as cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
Seeds make a crunchy addition to cereals, porridge or salads.
For a morning tonic, grind the seeds along with watermelon seeds into a
powder and take with aloe vera juice on an empty stomach each morning.
For a delicious salad dressing; grind seeds with fresh garlic, parsley
and coriander leaves. Mix with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
Coconuts provide the fatty acid, lauric acid. The only other plentiful
source of this is from lactating women; breast milk. When ingested,
lauric acid is then converted to monolaurin and kills or inactivates
protozoa, including several species of ringworm and Giardia lamblia.
For tapeworms it is suggested to drink the juice and eat the flesh of
one fresh coconut first thing each morning then fast for 4 hours.
This fruit has a sweet and sour flavour and can be used as a remedy for destroying worms in the intestinal tract.
When in season, eat 1-3 per day.
This fruit has a strong capacity to destroy worms, including most intestinal worms and tapeworm.
To enhance their anti worm powers remove the skin and soak in apple
cider vinegar for one day. Then eat eight ounces of this pickled papaya
and drink 2 ounces of the vinegar solution for 4 days.
preventative while travelling, eat a spoonful of papaya seeds once a day
on an empty stomach. If you already have parasites, eat the seeds for
one week, then wait a week and repeat. It is important to chew the seeds
thoroughly. If you don’t find them palatable you may blend them into
If you (and your partner if you have one) can tolerate it, eat a garlic bud first thing every morning.
Chopping of crushing fresh garlic converts the phytochemical alliin to
allicin, to which many of garlic’s health benefits are attributed.
For a tasty garlic hummus, puree 2 cloves of fresh garlic, 350 grams
canned chickpeas, 2 tablespoons tahini, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive
oil and 3 tablespoons lemon juice.
Garlic is a great addition to
fresh vegetable juices; remove the garlic clove from the bulb and wrap
in parsley so that the chlorophyll can bind some of the strong odour and
juice it before the other vegetables.
Horseradish is effective against food borne illness and is effective against some worms.
It is member of the cabbage family and is an ancient herb native to eastern Europe.
The Egyptians and early Greeks were quick to value its medicinal qualities.
When horseradish is cut, the powerful antibacterial ingredient allylisothiocyanate is released.
Always grate fresh horseradish in a room with an open window to avoid the stringent fumes burning your eyes and nose.
A spoonful of fresh horseradish in soup adds a surprisingly mild but delicious flavour.
For a sweet tangy sauce for fish or prawns mix grated horseradish with dijon mustard and marmalade.
Thymus is a Greek name for ‘courage’ but also had the meaning ‘to
fumigate’, which may be more appropriate in relation to its ability to
cleanse the system of worms.
Regularly eat the sprigs of thyme and drink half a cup of thyme tea each morning and evening.
For a dressing or marinade add fresh garlic and thyme to extra virgin olive oil and leave for 1 week.
8. Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne is a spice, closely related to the sweet red and chilli pepper,
and widely used in Mexican and East Asian cuisines. Also known as
Capsicum, its botanical name is derived from a Greek word meaning ‘to
bite’. It certainly does add a kick when used as a condiment with food.
Start with small amounts before increasing quantities and it will help
to repel parasites.
9. Bitter Melon
Bitter melon looks
like an ugly cucumber. It is one of the most popular vegetables in asia
but an acquired taste for most westerners. In Chinese medicine, bitter
foods drain ‘damp’ conditions such candida overgrowth and parasites. If
you haven’t managed to acquire the taste but still want to benefit from
the medicinal effect, take a 60ml shot of the juice.
10. Green Onions
Like garlic, onions release the enzyme alliinase when it is cut or crushed.
A tip for preparing onions and avoiding the ‘crying factor’ caused by
the sulphur compounds of onions, is to refrigerate the onions for an
hour before cutting and use a very sharp knife.
For an anti
parasitic tonic, juice the white part of green onions and add 2
teaspoons of sesame seed oil. Take twice a day on an empty stomach for 3
Importance of Intestinal Cleansing to Purge Parasites
Now do bear in mind that it may not be enough to simply incorporate the
above foods into your daily nibbles, drinks and marinades, if you truly
want to rid yourself of parasitic life.
It is essential to
start with a course of colonic irrigation using the following specific
herbs in an implant; black walnut, wormwood and cloves. It is very
important that these three herbs must be used in combination in order to
kill off the full lifecycle of parasites. Black walnut hull and
wormwood kill the adults and developmental stages of at least 100
parasites and the cloves kill the eggs.
Following anti parasite
colonic irrigation sessions to deep cleanse the colon and kill
parasites, adding these 10 recommended foods to a diet high in fresh raw
green vegetables, will help to create an alkaline environment with a
