As the cost of "Sick"care skyrockets so to do the cost associated with every aspect of the sick care industry (insurance premiums, co-pays, pharmaceutical drugs, sick leave, etc.). The time to act and take care of ourselves while jealously guarding our health has come. We can no longer afford to hand over our health or our wealth to others and hope to live happy, productive lives. The goal of this blog is to wade through some of the more mundane as well as a few sensational health issues that affect us today and how to get over them.

The Invaders Within

It is estimated that 85% of adults living in North America carry at least one type of parasite. These parasites are most likely to live in the intestinal tract where they are nurtured by typical industrialized eating habits that are void of actual nutrition. In other words our collective diets are not only ill suited to sustain our health but also helps to provide an environment of near perfect nourishment for parasites. In the end, if you will pardon the pun, we become malnourished and sick from poor nutrient uptake and an inability to eliminate waste efficiently.

Eating habits and parasites

The average diet these days consist of simple, highly processed carbohydrates. These processed foods pose many threats to our health but for the sake of this article we will focus on how it affects the intestines generally and parasites specifically. Processed foods are seldom broken down completely for the body to absorb. The undigested remnants tend to "stick" to the intestinal walls. When this happens our ability to absorb nutrients and eliminate waste efficiently decreases dramatically and our health with it. Continuing in the vein of bad news the intestines under these conditions become the perfect breeding ground for parasites. These parasitic beings burrow into stagnant fecal matter and set up shop robbing the body of what little nutrition that enters into the intestines. If the parasites proliferate in large enough numbers they could actually burrow through the intestinal walls and create a condition known as "leaky gut" syndrome. As we grow older without changing our eating habits we get caught in a vicious cycle that we are vaguely aware of and the parasites proliferate as we deteriorate. That old cliche "You are what you eat" still rings true.

Effects of parasites on our health

Aside from what has already been mentioned parasites can cause a host of other detrimental health issues such as:
  • They irritate the tissues and linings of the body creating inflammation
  • Parasites produce toxic waste that can be absorbed by the body.
  • Cell destruction by the parasites occur at a high rate. Under these conditions the body cannot reproduce the cells lost fast enough which causes an imbalance.
  • The immune system is weakened due to a continuous response which "burns" it out leaving a person prone to infections.
  • They cause obstructions in the bowels making efficient waste elimination near impossible.

Signs of parasites in humans

How do you know if you may be experiencing a parasite issue? Well, there are a few signs you may want to be aware of to assist in identifying this potential problem.

  • Constantly bloated abdomen
  • Depression/moodiness
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Chronic constipation or diarrhea
  • Cravings for sweets
  • Anemia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Persistent acne
  • PMS
  • Insomnia
  • Bad breath
  • Bad body odor 
  • Constant abdominal discomfort
  • Anal itching
  • Water retention
What can be done
  • Colon cleanse: A great place to start is a colon cleanse especially if that cleanse includes anti-parasitic herbs. The cleanse should be an internal herb and fiber based product as opposed to relying on colonics. Colonics often fail to cleanse the nooks and crevices of the intestinal wall and can extend into the colon only so far. This leaves the mid to upper portions of the colon uncleansed. Colonic hydrotherapy may have some benefit but for a full thorough effect begin from within!
  • Limit or eliminate highly processed foods: As mentioned earlier these foods gum up the system slowing digestion and creates a perfect breeding ground for parasites. In addition these foods tend to be void of nutrition setting a person up for malnourishment and weight gain.
  • Consume clean food and water: Sloppy food handling practices beginning at the farm and ending at whatever table you happen to be sitting at and contaminated water are most often the source of parasites even in industrialized areas of the world. Knowing the sources of your food and water and deciding to avoid foods that can be potentially contaminated can make a significant difference in your health and well being.

Parasites need not be a part of your life. With a little awareness and the willingness to eat healthier and cleanse parasites can become a thing of the past instead of that thing in your intestines.
