Parasites - The Unwanted Guests!

Odds are good that YOU - Yes YOU and your loved ones have them. "No not me!" you say. "I haven't travelled to a third world country...I don't have any pets... I don't eat meat... I am very careful!"  Unfortunately, none of these factors really matter that much. They may affect the amount and variety of critters, but most of us have them and don't even know it! They come through our food - a snail crosses over a leaf of the lettuce in your fresh salad, the meat was a bit ... eating at restaurants (lots of opportunities there), our beloved pets, and various social activities. There is a great deal of evidence linking the presence of Parasites to the development of Cancers. For my patients, I believe that it is rational, prudent, and cost effective to complete regular parasite cleanses in order to maintain good physical health. Please take a look at the partial list of symptoms below, and see if any apply to you. 

  • Fatigue, Sleep Disturbances
  • Nervousness, Irritability, Mood Swings, Hormonal Imbalances
  • Brain Fog
  • Grinding of the Teeth
  • Itchy Nose, Skin &/or Bum
  • Hair Loss
  • Indigestion, Constipation, Diarrhea, Irritable Bowel
  • Anaemia
  • Muscle Aches & Pains
  • Multiple Skin Conditions
  • Allergies
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Immune Deficiencies
  • Cancer
  • Many More!

There are many parasite cleanses on the market, however it is important to find the one that works best for you individually.  I do this primarily through muscle testing, but also through conventional labs. It is also best to have your whole family (including your pets) do a cleanse together so that you do not reinfect each other. It is also a good idea to do a cleanse 2 times per year - Spring and Autumn for maintenance.

Parasites are often missed on stool analysis, however signs of them may be present on live blood analysis. I refer patients to Susan Stephens of Liberated Living, Microscopist and Holistic Nutritionist when such assessments are deemed necessary. If you are having any of these symptoms please consider making an appointment so that together we may determine the right cleanse for you, while taking your overall state of health into consideration.
