Do you know that over 85% of Americans have a problem with internal parasites? These organisms live inside or on a host organism, and benefit at the expense of the host.
The internal parasites, like blood parasites, coccidia, and worms, live inside the body and feed off of blood and food, and can be in various sizes and shapes.
If left untreated, they lead to many health issues.
Some parasites lay eggs and cause insomnia, irritability, and itchiness, others lead to anemia as they feed off of red blood cells, and there are also some which eat your food, and leave you hungry but unable to gain weight.
These are the most common factors for getting intestinal parasites:
- Poor hygiene
- Poor sanitation
- International travel
- Weak immune system
- Living or visiting an area known to have parasites
Parasites can thrive in the intestines for years without lead to any symptoms. Yet, when they do occur, these are the most common ones:
- Weight loss
- Bloating and gas
- Abdominal pain
- Stomach pain and tenderness
- Nausea or vomiting
- Passing a worm in your stool
The occurrence of internal parasites leads to numerous serious health issues.
To treat parasites in a natural and safe way, you can use herbs, such as the following 7 most effective ones:
Thyme is extremely effective in stimulating the thymus gland, and its antibacterial properties prevent the growth of parasites while awakening the natural defensive system of the body. Thyme also kills intestinal microorganisms.
Garlic has strong antifungal properties which are perfect in the treatment of internal parasites. It kills harmful microorganisms and stimulates the removal of heavy metals from the body. This potent vegetable also repels fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
- Black Walnuts
Black walnut hulls and the nut itself cleanse the blood and the intestines and treat fungal infections. You should drink black walnut hulls juice or use the liquid to destroy internal parasites.
- Diatomaceous Earth
Food-grade diatomaceous earth absorbs methyl mercury, E. Coli, viruses, and endotoxins, and also kills intestinal parasites, detoxifies the body, and regulates the intestinal flora.
The bright yellow-green flowers and leaves of the wormwood are commonly used in the treatment of stomach issues. Its antimicrobial properties clear up infections and treat intestinal worms. Yet, note that it is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
Clove is the only herb that can completely destroy parasite eggs. The antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties of the clove essential oil destroy internal parasites by destroying the eggs that worms lay in the intestinal tract. When mixed with wormwood and black walnuts, it is even more effective.
- Oregano Oil
Oregano oil has potent antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and antiviral properties. It is high in antioxidants that prevent free radical damage and resets the microbial environment in the intestinal tract.
