Many people throughout the world do parasite cleanses every 6 to 12 months. There are many different herbs that can help detox parasites from the body. For example. the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes Wormwood as an effective parasite-killing herb.
But before you go and buy a bottle of wormwood, be sure to keep the following in mind:
1. Detoxing Parasites Can Be Quite Unpleasant
When parasites consume an anti-parasitic herb, they release toxins as they die. These toxins cause intestinal cramping, pain, diarrhea, constipation, and may other unpleasant reactions. The parasite protocols we use at Natural Health Practices helps to reduce these “die off” symptoms.
2. You May Need to “Cycle” the Herbs
It is important to know that many parasite detox products easily available online or in health stores are ineffective because the user does not cycle the product properly. In order to kill egg-laying parasites, it is necessary to cycle the herbal remedy ten days on and then five days off. This cycling may be necessary for months after symptoms disappear. This is because for ten days you are killing the “mother” parasite. When the mother parasite is alive, it releases a chemical that prevents her eggs from hatching. However, when the mother is killed, her eggs will hatch. During the five “off” days, you are letting the eggs hatch. Then, when you start on the herbal products again, you’re able to kill the remaining parasites as well. If you don’t cycle the herbal remedies in this way, the newly-hatched parasites will fight each other to become the next dominant parasite.
3. You Need to Use the Correct Remedy
If you do not use the correct herbs for the specific parasite, then a parasite cleanse may be ineffective. Certain herbs are more effective for certain parasites and if you use the wrong ones, you won’t get the results you were hoping for. The practitioners at Natural Health Practices use a special testing technique to determine what type of parasite remedies will work best for each individual patient.
