The startling truth is that almost everyone is parasitized. Yes, even healthy individuals who are symptom-free. Parasites can affect anyone, although they are particularly common in children and adults with compromised immune systems. The issue is whether or not these parasites are promoting health or sickness (because weirdly, sometimes parasites are useful for health). These creatures only become an issue when we become infected or overrun by them, and when they do, the symptoms that they produce can be fatal.
The following are some of the most typical indications and symptoms of intestinal parasites:
Digestive issues such as unexplained diarrhea, constipation, or lingering gas
Undiagnosed skin conditions like eczema, hives, and itching.
Joint and muscle ache
Feeling fatigued even after getting enough sleep
Despite eating a large dinner, constant hunger
Anemia due to iron deficiency
Teeth grinding during sleep, PICA
Unknown anxiety symptoms
Ongoing yeast infections, vaginal or anus itching
How can you get parasites?
Consuming infected food, such as raw meat, or ingesting polluted water is one of the most popular methods to get parasites. Additionally, exposure to infected excrement can cause you to contract parasites (meaning: wash your hands after you use the bathroom - if everyone did, it could largely decrease the spread of the microscopic eggs of parasites).
However, parasites do not always pose a threat.
Changing your diet may help you get rid of your parasite problem because they thrive on junk food, particularly sugar, and feed off of what you eat. People who have immune system problems or microbiome abnormalities are also more likely to have parasites. Being unwell essentially makes it easier for these invaders to take up residence in your body. This can lead to nutrient deficiencies, a suppressed immune system, which can lead to disease perpetuation, and severe gut dysfunction. Perhaps you can see how this is a vicious cycle: poor health weakens the immune system, attracting parasites, and parasite overgrowth weakens your health even more.

Candida yeast infections may thrive along with parasites. Oregano oil fights candida, protecting against "leaky gut," a common digestive complaint.
3.Drinks that kills parasitic infection:
a) Pineapple juice: The generation of proinflammatory cytokines, which can cause colon inflammation, can be reduced by pineapple juice. The ability of bromelain to kill worms and its prowess in digesting meals high in protein make it a great weapon against intestinal parasites. You can boost your immune system and help fight off and get rid of parasites by regularly eating pineapple.
b) Garlic juice: Since ancient times, people have utilized garlic for its medical benefits, which include enhancing appetite, boosting immunity, eliminating parasites, and treating motion sickness. Bacterial and yeast overgrowth in the gut have been linked to chronically low stomach acid levels. It's vital to note that garlic can enhance the production of stomach acids.
c) Apple cider vinegar: B-vitamins are found in apple cider vinegar, which makes it incredibly beneficial for the body. Parasites can be removed, digestion can be aided, and the pH equilibrium in the body can be restored.
a) Pumpkin seeds: Because they contain tetracyclic triterpenes that can aid in the removal of parasites from the body, pumpkin seeds are frequently used as a parasite treatment. In addition, cucurbitacins included in pumpkin seeds can paralyze worms and hinder their ability to hide within intestinal walls. As a result, they go through the bowels more easily when having a bowel movement.
b) Cucumber seeds: Tapeworms that live in the digestive tract can be easily removed with cucumber seeds. Because of this, it is wise to eat cucumber seeds as a preventative strategy even if you do not currently have a parasite. Tapeworms can be eliminated by cucumber enzymes.
c) Papaya seeds: It is advisable to consume papaya seeds in the morning as they aid to eradicate intestinal parasites.
a) Cures constipation: Take one spoonful of food-grade (medical grade) castor oil before bedtime for three consecutive nights to treat constipation. You can do this once every three months, but avoid eating any raw vegetables or fruits and keep your meal intake very minimal.
b) Det flush of stomach :
Do this on an empty stomach.
Three teaspoons of food- or pharmaceutical-grade castor oil should be added to a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Stir, then drink immediately.
Wait for 30 minutes.
Drink one hot glass of water.
Two glasses of warm water should be consumed after waiting 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, take two more glasses of warm water.
Rest until you feel the need to use the restroom.
For two days after the flush, avoid greasy, spicy, and heavy foods. Also avoid eating anything uncooked. This flush is quite powerful and effective because it washes away the body of all toxins. As a result, it may cause you to feel a little dizzy when flushing out parasites like tapeworms. Repeat every month for better results.
