In this post I’m going to discuss natural parasite treatment considerations and options available, if you’ve been diagnosed (using appropriate testing) with having intestinal parasites.
In fact, I’m sharing with you here my clinical experience (of 9+ years) in applying various natural methods and the steps I use to help my clients to either eradicate parasites or significantly decrease their numbers so the immune system can better ‘manage’ them.
I also provide you with an overview of the current research in this area so you better understand the methods I use and describe here.
Anti-parasitic diet and nutrition using specific foods, is an important part of the natural approach and the foundation of good gut health. You can download my FREE “Key Nutrition Guidelines for Parasitic Infections” guide below.
Let’s dive right in!
Eradicating parasites – yes or no?
Many people are searching for information on various parasite treatments nowadays. Gut health and intestinal parasites in particular, are areas of special interest and research in my practice.
I find that intestinal parasites are often overlooked as a potential cause of disease in the digestive system and in many other seemingly unrelated health concerns.
There is increasing evidence of the ability to cause ill health by relatively common parasitic organisms previously considered to be commensal organisms (i.e. living together in balance with other organisms in a given environment).
Thus parasite treatment options become important to consider in chronic conditions with or without digestive symptoms present.
In such cases it’s important to investigate and remove/reduce the parasites, where they are found in people presenting with significant gastrointestinal complaints such as cramping, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, pain etc; combined with fatigue, low energy, brain fog and memory lapses, anxiety, depression or headaches, to name a few.
Dientamoeba fragilis (D.fragilis) and Blastocystis hominis (Blastocystis) are two common parasites living in our gastrointestinal tracks (the large intestine) that are found throughout the world. They can negatively impact many aspects of health in both children and adults.
