I am sure the word “parasite” conjures up scary images. Whether it’s a bug or that creepy cousin who only seems to show up when there’s food involved. Parasites feed off of unwitting hosts. Until you let them know they are no longer welcome, they will hang around wreaking havoc on your body.
In the case of parasites infesting your body, they feed off the nutrients you take in for yourself. They deprive you of needed nutrition and in many cases, cause chronic illnesses. It can range from minor to life-threatening, and everything in-between. It’s bad enough if you have to handle minor health challenges. But it is those chronic and life-threatening illnesses that make this a serious issue for you and your loved ones. Either way parasite cleansing can be vital.
- All bodies of water (lakes, streams, puddles, and rivers)
- All soil (whether in the mountains or your lawn in the city)
- All animals (whether wild or your favorite pet)
So whether you are a homebody or a world traveler, you are at risk. These omnipresent parasites can find their way into your life through a variety of avenues. They typically end up in your system via contaminated food or water. As already noted, the spectrum of parasitic infection varies widely from mild illness to death if left untreated.
Parasites are a huge overlooked problem today. Western medicine thinks you are crazy if you say the word parasite. The truth is if you have a pulse, you have a parasite. (Famous quote from Dr Todd Watts)
Do you touch doorknobs, keyboards, go to restrooms, use shopping carts bite your fingernails, drink water, breathe air, eat food, have pets, sit on the floor, etc??
I know you answered YES to most or all of these. In order to keep ourselves from being affected by them, we must stay in tip-top shape, because once they are inside of you, they multiply like crazy. For example, roundworms can lay 300,000 eggs in one day! Tapeworms can grow to be 30 feet long. Single-celled amoebas can actually eat the brain.
Consequently, no one is totally immune to them, not even the healthiest people alive. Yet, we can keep our bodies in very good condition and create a non-ideal environment for them.
