Humans, just the same as other animals, have always had parasites, both inside and outside of our bodies. Its easy to see inside of animals when you dissect a fish, frog or pig in a college biology lab. The perfect environment for parasites to grow and live within our bodies is promoted by a diet that may include raw fish (sushi), refined carbs (sugar), meat that is undercooked (particularly pork), and even fruits and vegetables that are washed inadequately.
Contracting these parasites is easier than you would think. Trips or vacations to areas with impure water, restaurants with poor sanitation practices, and pets and animals are all common contributors.
People today live a carefree lifestyle: they eat and drink whatever they want. They have no idea that with this kind of lifestyle, they are welcoming various parasites and microorganisms into their body. These bold strangers will rob the nutrients within the intestinal tract like the minerals, vitamins, and amino acids that are meant to be for the consumption of the entire body and assist with vital functions to keep you healthy.

In times of plentiful, nourishing food and clean water, parasites do not take over the host. However, if food is scarce or unhealthy, and water intake isn’t sufficient and clean, their general health will decline and parasites will thrive.
Below is a list of 10 foods that can help prevent parasite infestation. An all-natural parasite cleanse is recommended to initially rid your body of any parasites that are already within you.
For the most nutritional pumpkin seeds, opt for heirloom raw organic pumpkin seeds. Seeds make a crunchy and healthy addition to cereals, oatmeal, porridge or salads. When making a morning tonic, grind the seeds into a powder and take with organic aloe vera juice on an empty stomach each morning. For a delicious salad dressing; grind seeds with fresh garlic, coriander leaves and parsley. Mix with lemon juice and organic extra virgin olive oil.
Coconuts provide lauric acid, which is a healthy fatty acid. The only other plentiful source for lauric acid is from lactating women (breast milk.) When ingested, lauric acid is converted to monolaurin and inactivates or kills several species of ringworm.
For tapeworms, it is recommended to drink the juice and eat the flesh of one fresh coconut first thing each morning, followed by a 4 hour fast.
This fruit has a sour but sweet flavor and can be used as a remedy for destroying worms within the intestinal tract. Eat 1-3 per day if possible.
This fruit has a strong ability to destroy worms, which include most intestinal worms and tapeworms. To enhance their anti-worming powers even more, remove the skin and soak in Bragg’s Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar for one day. Once soaked, eat 8 ounces of this pickled papaya and drink 2 ounces of the same vinegar solution for 4 days.
For preventative measures when traveling, eat a spoonful of papaya seeds one time per day on an empty stomach. If you believe you have parasites, eat the seeds for one week, then rest a week and repeat. It is important to chew the seeds thoroughly. If you like the taste, a good way to consume is to blend them into smoothies.
If you (and your significant other, if you have one) can tolerate it, eat a bud of garlic first thing every morning. Crushing or chopping fresh garlic converts the phytochemical alliin into allicin, to which many of garlic’s health benefits are attributed.
To make a tasty and healthy garlic hummus, puree 2 cloves of fresh garlic, 350 grams canned chickpeas, 2 tablespoons tahini, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil.
Horseradish is considered to be highly effective against food borne illness and is effective against certain worms. Horseradish is a member of the cabbage family, and is an ancient herb that is native to eastern Europe. Both the early Greeks and the Egyptians were quick to value its medicinal qualities.
When horseradish is cut, allylisothiocyanate is released, which is a powerful antibacterial ingredient. Always cut or grate fresh horseradish in a room that has an open window, so to avoid the stringent fumes from burning your nose and eyes.
A spoonful of fresh horseradish in soup can add a surprisingly mild and delicious flavor. For a tangy sweet sauce for fish or prawns, mix grated horseradish with marmalade and dijon mustard.
Thymus is the Greek name for ‘courage,’ but also has the meaning ‘to fumigate’, which might be a more appropriate meaning in relation to its ability to clean the system of worms.
Eat the sprigs of thyme and drink 1/2 a cup of thyme tea every morning and evening. For a marinade or dressing, add fresh thyme and garlic organic extra virgin olive oil and let sit for 1 week.
Cayenne is a spice, that is closely related to the chili and sweet red pepper, and is widely used in both Mexican and Asian cuisines. Also known as Capsicum, its botanical name is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘to bite’. Start with smaller amounts before increasing quantities to help repel parasites.
Bitter Melon looks like a really ugly cucumber. Its one of the most popular vegetables in Asia, but is an acquired taste for most other cultures. In Chinese medicine, bitter foods drain ‘damp’ conditions such parasites and candida overgrowth. If you haven’t managed to acquire the taste for Bitter Melon, but still want to receive the benefits from the medicinal effect, take a 50mL shot of the juice.
Similar to garlic, onions release the enzyme alliinase when they are crushed or cut. A way of preparing onions while avoiding the ‘onion cry’ caused by the sulphur compounds within the onions, is to refrigerate the onions for 1 hour before cutting. Also, use a very sharp knife.
For an anti-parasite tonic, juice the white part of green onions and add 2 teaspoons of sesame seed oil. Drink twice a day on an empty stomach for 3 days.
Keep in mind that it may not be enough to simply incorporate the above foods into your daily diet, if you truly want to rid yourself of parasitic life.
It is absolutely essential to start with an all-natural parasite cleanse. It is very important that the herbs within the parasite cleanse be used in combination in order to kill off the full life cycle of parasites. Both the wormwood and black walnut hull kill the adults and developmental stages of at least 100 parasites, and the cloves kill the eggs. This method is all-natural, safe, and highly effective.
Following the use of the parasite cleanse to kill parasites and deep cleanse the colon, adding these 10 foods to a diet high in fresh raw green vegetables will help to create an alkaline environment with a strong immunity against worms and parasites, which will help to keep you parasite-free.
