Testing at Great Smokies Diagnostic Labs as well as other labs indicate that many of us have intestinal parasites. These can vary from microscopic, so that we cannot see them, to large worms. In addition is the intestinal dysbiosis caused by use of antibiotics, poor diets and exposure. This may be a far more common problem that was suspected. If you suspect parasites we recommend the Comprehensive Parasitology test by Genova Diagnostic Labs as one of the foremost testing labs.
Parasites can be difficult to find and just as difficult to eradicate. Often times it is best to test first to find out what you have and then to pick a specific remedy that works for that parasite. Alternatively you can use one of the general parasite cleanses. The difficulty here is that you are not sure it will work and if you did not test you are not sure you got rid of it.
Another problem with cleaning of parasites is that the can be burrowed into the linings of the large or small intestines and they can be in layers. This can make it hard to detect them. In addition it may mean that you have to do several rounds of cleanses as each round may only kill the topmost level. As the gut heals from the inflammation the underlying parasites are now accessible and can be killer.
Unlike many of the popular parasite programs out there that promise quick results, the facts are that killing all the parasites and infections can take some time and requires persistence.
Parasites are living breeding organisms and as such lay eggs. These eggs can lay dormant for some time. You may do a very good parasite cleanse but stop too soon. You killed all the active parasites but left the eggs. The eggs then hatch and you are now in the same place as before except you are probably frustrated. So any good program has to be long enough to get the eggs as well. Sometimes the addition of a castor oil pack will get the eggs to hatch thus speeding their eradication.
Fungus and Yeast Infections
Fungus and yeast infections are very prevalent in our society. They seem to come about from a breakdown of the immune system often due to unhealthy alterations in the body terrain. By the time the fungus or yeast has taken root there has probably been an ongoing problem for some time. This is part of the reason why it can be so difficult to kill them and get rid of them permanently.
An addition consideration when trying to kill yeast is that they appear to metabolize heavy metals in the gut. Heavy metal toxicity is very common in our culture due to the mercury in our mouths (whose idea was that), the mercury used as a preservative in our childhood vaccinations (another crazy idea) and the mercury and other toxic metals in the environment.
Some practitioners feel that trying to kill the yeast with a candida program before removing the metals is inappropriate. So before deciding on killing yeast in your body you may want to do a heavy metal program or test to find out if you have this common problem.
Finding and killing parasites is a very good idea if you wish to regain and maintain good health. The process of finding and killing of these parasites is complicated by such things as heavy metal toxicity, parasite eggs, and the presence of food allergies, gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.
A complete program to eradicate parasites often entails a combination of Comprehensive Parasitology testing, several rounds of anti-parasitic natural remedies and often the testing and removing of food allergens and sensitivities.
