My Lemon Liver Cleanse is coming to an end, click here to read more about it. I am now going to transition onto Herbal Intestinal Parasite Cleanse. Parasites are live organisms living inside our bodies. They have their own energy and their own belief systems. Funny enough, we might not even realise this, but we might pick up these negative emotions or beliefs from them. I know you are thinking, what is she even talking about, but wait until you will start your parasite cleanse. You will become easily irritated, will be snapping back at people and will loose your temper much quicker. All of this is because once these parasites start to die, they influence us with their emotions. Stay committed and you will feel much greater, energised, clear minded, your appetite will increase and cravings for junk, processed food will reduce or be eliminated completely.
This is not a quick fix, as everyone is different and what works for me not necessarily is going to work for you. That is why before you start any cleanse or detox, consult with your doctor, GP, naturopath or herbalist. I am only sharing my experience, so you could be more aware of the reasons why you are not feeling well, can’t lose weight or always craving junk food. With a health of the professional and your commitment to stick to the parasite cleanse, you will experience great results.
Most of people might think that they do not have parasites. We could easily get parasites by not washing our vegetables properly, especially curly salad leaves. Other sources could be contaminated water, raw meet or fish, insect bites or through nose or skin. Some of the symptoms indicating that you have parasites in your body could be acne, depression, teeth grinding, bad breath or body odor, dizziness. Once inside your body, they will thriwe off the food and nutrients you consume. This is another reason why it might be difficult for you to loose weight. You might feel like constantly snacking and consuming processed sugary or fatty foods like crisps and sweets. The parasites would thrive on these snacks. But changing your diet and incorporating more alkaline foods like vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts and seeds would automatically create an environment, in which they can’t live and thrive.
Parasites are also releasing their waste products and toxins into our blood stream. They end up being stored in our fat cells and could be a reason of the weight gain. Once you start exercising, your body starts releasing these toxins from your fat cells. That is why you feel sore for the first couple of weeks after starting to exercise. Increased blood circulation with increased physical activity levels, parasite cleanse as well as water will help you flush these toxins. The build up of these toxins could also lead to more serious diseases. There is no quick fix, when it comes to living a healthier life. You have to take small steps and experiment with what works the best for you.
The herbal parasite cleanse that I am doing consist of three herbs – tansy, wormwood and cloves. I grounded 50 grams of each of them in the coffee grounder and will take 1 tea spoon with the glass of water in the morning before the breakfast and 1 tea spoon before bed time for the next 40 days.
Tansy – I have never heard of this herb before, but as a child I remember playing in the fields full of tansies. This is a great herbal remedy to treat worms both in the adults and kids, as it is toxic for the internal parasites. It helps to eliminate thread worms and round worms. High doses of this herb could be toxic, so only presbribed dose should be used for the period of the cleanse. Tansy could also be used to flush kidney stones from the body. Other benefits of this herb include improved digestion, antiviral and antibacterial properties, due to being high in Vitamin C, it also stimulates hair growth.
Wormwood is another herb in my parasite cleanse. It also helps to expel intestinal worms and other harmful organisms and cleanse many internal organs. Wormwood also has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antioxidant properties. It also helps to relieve indigestion, irritable bowl syndrome symptoms, stimulates appetite. Muscle cramping and tension in the muscles could also be released with wormwood extract. In women it could help stimulate menstruation and regulate the cycle.
Cloves also have antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, properties. This spice helps to relieve indigestion and constipation problems. Cloves also have a natural anti-parasite function. They help to protect the liver, boosts immune system, fights against oral diseases and headaches. They have a great antibacterial properties as well.
Other great herbs to try for parasite cleanse are oregano, black walnut and slippery elm.
