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)
  • Doorknobs
  • Keyboards
  • Restrooms
  • Shopping carts
  • Under fingernails

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.


Parasites are a huge part of chronic illnesses. They are overlooked by western medicine and other specialty doctors. We ALL have parasites. If you have a pulse, you have parasites. I didn’t want to believe I had parasites either. It was a HUGE pill to swallow, but guess what? I would rather know and treat, then to feel like garbage daily and have others; as well as doctors look at me like I am crazy.

You might think you don’t have because you don’t see them. It’s not likely that you’d ever see most of these bugs in your own stool even though they are probably there. 70% of parasites are completely microscopic, meaning even if you’re killing them off during your cleanse, you won’t always see them on the way out.

The unfortunate thing is, we actually have a symbiotic relationship with parasites. In ways we need them to absorb the toxic chemicals, radiation and metals we are taking in.

The key to ridding yourself is assuring they come out whole which is challenging. Parasites contain toxins. They like to munch on heavy metals & pathogens, that if obliterated will release into your bloodstream. They are also more active during the full moon, hence why people start acting crazy!! It is the PARASITES.


Parasites can range in microscopic size to large tapeworms or rope worms, that are visible in the stool. There are hundreds of types of parasites and many times, you need to just go by your symptoms and treat. Of course, those with poor immune systems and Lyme sufferers, will have a higher infestation.


Common symptoms range from insomnia, teeth grinding, anemia, skin conditions, bloating, gas, sugar cravings, fatigue, anxiety, depression, plus so much more.


Make sure to remove grains, sugars, pork and other meats from your diet. If you can, eat a plant base diet, you will be much healthier overall.  You should also consider adding substances like garlic, pumpkin seeds, turmeric, and coconut.

One of the most powerful treatments for  parasites is Mimosa Pudica. This substance paralyzes parasites and flushes them from the system.  Cellcore and Zuma Nutrition has the most effective line on the market.

If you are looking for one of your root causes to your illness, then treating parasites will be a huge piece to your healing.  Don’t give up and keep fighting to win your health back and become whole again.
