How to Get Rid of Parasites

Parasite cleansing and detoxing can be a very effective wellness tool, but most people don’t know anything about it.

While we accept that our pets can contract parasites, the reality that humans can also have parasites tends to be a foreign one.

The truth is that most of us will have unfriendly parasites in our systems at one point in our lives. For some time many believed that humans only got parasites if they traveled to exotic countries, but you can still get parasites close to home.

Do you want to get rid of parasites and detox them from your body? If so, there are easy natural strategies you can utilize to help yourself.

Types of Parasites

Types of parasites include roundworms, protozoa (one-cell parasites), flukes and tapeworms. Before you start to imagine huge worms crawling around your body, keep in mind it is estimated that 70 percent of all human parasites are microscopic. However, even though parasites cannot be seen with the naked eye, it doesn’t mean that they still can’t do a lot of damage to our bodies.

In fact, prominent sources such as Medscape and Healthline note that intestinal parasite infections are on the rise and can cause an array of troubling symptoms such as headache, abdominal pain, gas and bloating.

The good news is there are lots of things you can do to get rid of parasites and detox them from your body!

In fact, parasite cleansing just may be the health breakthrough you are looking for!

Our Founder, Chelsea, has witnessed and experienced great healing from parasite cleansing and detoxing throughout her lifetime.

Chelsea has had the rare experience of studying with prominent natural healers since she was just a kid.

How Do You Know if You Have Parasites?

While the symptoms vary, common signs include nervousness, stomach bloating, fatigue, fuzzy thinking, itchy anus, sinus trouble, unhealthy cravings, and feeling hungry, tired and malnourished—even after eating a large meal.

You may also notice drab skin and hair…as if it’s not being nourished from within. We have noticed a stunning decrease in wrinkles and age spots and brighter, healthier hair and skin after a parasite cleanse and detox.

One of the most common symptoms we have found is digestive issues that center on constant stomach bloating that never seems to go away. We have discovered that parasite cleansing really helps with stomach heaviness and stomach weight gain.

The Parasite and Weight Gain Connection

If you are trying to lose weight, you’ll be interested to learn that there is a strong correlations between stubborn weight gain and parasites.

Keep in mind parasites affect gut health by causing chronic inflammation and digestive issues.

Also, most of the time a parasitic infection is not even considered when addressing belly weight and belly heaviness.

Thus, parasites may be something that you’ve never even considered as a contributor to your weight issues.

Imagine if parasites is your primary issue?!

Do you have problems with constipation, nausea, diarrhea and gas or feeling symptoms that are similar to irritable bowel syndrome without a diagnosis? This has been our experience with parasites…the symptoms feel a tad vague, but are dominated by unknown stomach and digestive issues.

It’s also really interesting that there is such an emphasis on pets and parasites in the United States, but rather limited attention to how parasites can affect humans.

However, European and Native American cultures often focus on powerful parasite cleansing to help people feel and look better.

In fact, you’ll find parasite cleansing specifically for weight loss at prominent and expensive European spas.

So the fact that most Americans haven’t even heard of parasite cleansing remains a bit of a mystery?

The good new is that you can fight parasites with natural tools that have a long track record of success.

Three Ways to Start Fighting Parasites

When it comes to parasite cleansing, using a systematic and a complete approach has been what we have found to be most effective. However, here are three tools to give you a starting point if you are looking to get rid of parasites.

Garlic—Start fighting parasites by adding more garlic to your diet. Garlic contains Allicin and Ajoene—two components that work to kill parasites.

Wormwood –One of the most well-known herbs for parasites, Wormwood, contains the components thujone and isothujone, which help to dispel parasites from the body. Check out Hanna Kroeger’s Wormwood, which is one of the highest-rated Wormwood supplements.

Colon Cleanse—Diets heavy in processed and fast foods can clog up the body. And just like garbage attracts unwanted bugs when left outdoors for longer periods of times, so can waste that sits in a backed-up colon (You get the picture). Thus, a gentle colon cleanse can help dispel waste and parasites from the system.  Some of the most well-known products for colon cleansing include Sonne’s Detoxification Pack— a highly regarded line of products which has been around since 1946.

Of course, you will always want to check with your doctor before adding any new supplement.

These tools are a beginning point if you are interested in learning ways to fight parasites. However, through 20+ years of research and experience, we have found a gentle and consistent approach to cleansing and detoxing parasites to be the best route. In fact, parasite cleansing is one of the most vital and effective wellness tools we have found! Now, we are offering the exact blueprint we use to gently and effectively rid the body of parasites!

Natural Flu Fighters

With more people becoming increasingly concerned about the Flu, many are looking for ways to protect their health. Below are some helpful, general (and easy!) tips to overcoming the flu and other viruses.

Plain ol’ Vitamin C – Even though most people know the benefits of Vitamin C, many don’t take it to boost their immune systems when they are concerned about illness—they take it AFTER they get sick. To choose the right Vitamin C for you, talk to your health care provider about which dosage you should take. Drinks like “C Monster” make it easy to get some Vitamin C and stay hydrated at the same time. Which brings us to the next point…

Stay Hydrated and Eat Whole Foods – Again, this seems like common sense, but often the most logical and clear cut health strategies are the ones that are most missed. To help keep your body healthy make sure to drink lots of fluids throughout the day (remember that soda and coffee do not count!) and eat whole foods – including choices that boost health and immunity.  Look for organic choices like garlic (natural immune boost) squash (helps clear toxics), asparagus (cleans the blood) and Elderberries (antiviral properties and flu-fighting flavonoids).

Hyland’s Products— Since 1903, Hyland’s has built a long a solid reputation for producing effective products. They are the largest domestic manufacturer of homeopathic medicines in North America. Hyland’s Complete Flu Care and new Complete Flu Care for kids feature two-phase action help to minimize flu symptoms at first onset and help relieve nasty symptoms after the flu has set in.

Protect your kids from overlooked health risk

A leading health risk often overlooked as a possible cause for disruptive and irritable behavior in children, lead poisoning is a serious condition that if left untreated can cause various health threats. In fact, according to the CDC, lead poisoning can damage the kidneys, the nervous system, the reproductive system, cause elevated blood pressure and is especially harmful to the developing brains of young children and fetuses.

So how does a child end up with too much lead in his or her system? Most people know about the dangers of lead paint found covering walls of many older houses and apartment buildings. However, not too many people consider their child’s exposure to water run through lead pipes or the massive amount of environmental lead residue. The EPA estimates that more than 12 million children primarily living in urban areas are exposed to around 10 million metric tons of lead residue resulting from the use of leaded gasoline and paint. Even juice boxes can be a source of lead!

According to the Mayo Clinic the signs and symptoms of lead poisoning in children may include:

• Irritability

• Loss of appetite

• Weight loss

• Sluggishness and fatigue

• Abdominal pain

• Vomiting

• Constipation

• Unusual paleness from anemia

• Learning difficulties

You can get your child tested for lead poisoning, often for free. Start by checking with your local health department regarding lead screening guidelines specific to the risks in your area.  If your child does indeed have lead poisoning, you’ll want to talk to your health care provider before starting any treatment, but there are a number of natural remedies that might help.

Natural Strategies for combating lead poisoning  include utilizing homeopathic remedies specifically for lead accumulation. For instance, Hanna Kroeger Herbs makes a Plumbum (Latin for lead) remedy specifically to help dispel lead from the body. Helpful herbs for combating lead poisoning and heavy metal toxicity include Alfalfa and Dandelion. Make sure to always buy organic or wild herbs that haven’t been treated with pesticides. Make sure to consult your doctor about which products are best for you and your children! And of course, it is important to identify the source of lead so that your child isn’t exposed again. Finally, don’t forget to test yourself and other family members for lead poisoning if your child tests positive! Other people in your family could also be at risk!

Are Retroviruses a Factor in Breast Cancer?

While many think that genetics are the main cause of breast cancer, only about 1 in 10 cases are caused by a genetic link. So if genetics aren’t the prevalent cause of breast cancer, what is?

Since the 1930s, there has been a stream of studies surrounding retroviruses and their link to human cancers.  Simply put, retroviruses invade the host DNA and disrupt genes that control cell division, which in turn can cause cancer. When it comes to breast cancer there has been some promising research that shows a connection. In fact, throughout the years well-known researchers have explored the possible link between breast cancer and a retrovirus known as the mammary tumor virus (MMTV). In two prominent studies, researchers found the MMTV retrovirus present in breast tumors and cells.

So what can you do to protect yourself from retroviruses?  Olive leaf extract has been found to be a wonderful healing remedy for retroviruses due to its antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiparasiti and antioxidant properties. Also, the X-40 Kit was specifically designed by the legendary healer, Hanna Kroeger, to combat retroviruses. It also helps prevent fatigue and lift brain fog and is a great tool to promote overall wellness.
