arasites are living organisms that live off of a host organism. Parasites take and utilize the host organisms nutrients and in so doing hurt the host organism. Parasites take on a number of different forms and can thrive throughout the body. They most often live within the human intestines. It is estimated that about 50% of Americans have an abundance of parasitic organisms in their gut. Take action and cleanse your system of parasites naturally.
How do We Get Parasites?
Parasites enter the human body through the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. In 3rd world countries the most common way to encounter parasites is through contaminated water. Anyone traveling to a foreign country should be cautious about drinking the water. Poor sanitation and poor hygiene are the most common ways people encounter parasites. In America, parasites are spread through pork products and shellfish as well as contaminated food and water.
There are thousands of different types of parasites that are common to humans. Protozoa consist of a single cell and multiply in enormous numbers inside the human intestine. The most commonly found protozoic parasites are giardia, neospora, amoebae, toxoplasmosis, cryptosporidium, and sarcocystis.
Parasites and Worms
Another form of parasite is the Helminth worm. This includes tapeworms, pinworms, hookworms, threadworms, roundworms and others. Many individuals doing a parasite cleanse will see the worms in their stools as they are eliminated from the body.
The body’s immune system goes after the parasites once they are identified. Often times the parasites are extremely strong and multiply too quickly for the immune system to keep them at bay. Some of the most common symptoms associated with intestinal parasites include diarrhea, gas, bloating, flu-like symptoms, nausea, rashes, joint pain, chronic fatigue, and chronic sinusitis.
Destroy Parasites in Your Body
Parasites love sugar and everything that turns into sugar. So the best way to starve the parasites is through using healthy fasting and cleansing strategies while eliminating as much sugar and grains as possible from the diet.
Several herbs and foods act as very strong antiparasitic agents. Extra-virgin coconut oil is loaded with medium chain triglycerides that enhance the immune system in its battle against pathogens. Raw garlic and onions provide sulfur containing amino acids that are antiparasitic. Eat six tablespoons of raw, extra virgin coconut oil, one whole clove of garlic, and one large red onion daily to help parasite proof your body.
Dried oregano and especially essential oil of oregano are extremely volatile and antiparasitic. Use 2-3 drops of oregano oil in water with fresh squeezed lemon and drink this 3x daily. Clove works just as well so you could also substitute or use clove oil with oregano oil. Ginger, wormwood, black walnut are also commonly used in antiparasitic strategies.
Fasting with fermented drinks such as fermented whey from grass-fed cows and fermented ginger, kombucha, coconut kefir, apple cider vinegar, etc. are powerful tools to help destroy parasites. Many holistic health coaches recommend a three to twenty-one day low calorie, liquid diet that is rich in fermented beverages, water and fresh squeezed lemon. Probiotic supplements are highly recommended to help destroy parasites and re-innoculate the gut.
After the cleansing period, it is especially important to utilize high quality fermented raw dairy and vegetables. Raw, grass-fed fermented dairy products like amasai & cheese and kimchi, sauerkraut, and fermented veggies should be used abundantly. These foods are rich sources of L-glutamine, an amino acid that helps rebuild the gut. These fermented foods also contain very powerful strains of good bacteria, organic acids, and enzymes that act to keep parasites out of the body.
If you are in the market for supplements to help speed along the process of ridding the body of parasites I recommend MicroDefense – Pure Encapsulations and Oil of Oregano, two powerful supplements for ridding the body of parasites.” – Michael Edwards

EARTHING – GROUND YOUR BODY FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH
August 20, 2013 by David Jockers DC, MS, CSCS
Last updated on: June 3, 2015
Walking barefoot on the earth has been a staple part of human and animal life since the beginning of time. In the past couple of generations, humans have made shoes, sandals, and boots that insulate us from the natural energies of the Earth. Although these shoes protect our feet, modern shoes also deprive us of the free electrons present in the ground. Grounding our bodies with barefoot exposure has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect that is a genetic requirement for optimal health.
Our world has more medical technology than ever before. Much of this is good; however, there is no substitute for the healing forces found naturally on Earth. Nature itself is a powerful healing source. The sun produces vitamin D3, the plants and vegetation give us anti-oxidants, trace minerals and chlorophyll among other things. The Earth itself provides a powerful form of free electrons that are available to everyone by merely exposing our bodies to these natural energies present on the ground.
Our bodies are a living matrix of energetically charged biochemical circuits that are charged and coordinated through the activity of the central nervous system. The Earth itself is regulated by subtle but dynamic electrical circuits. The electrical crosstalk between the Earth and our central nervous system helps to program trillions of biochemical reactions.
Earth’s Electrical Rhythms
The Earth’s electrical rhythms play a significant role in the natural circadian rhythms that govern our sleep/wake cycle, hormones, mood, and energy production. Studies taken on people fully disconnected from this natural electrical rhythm have shown abnormal circulating cortisol levels indicating abnormal stress responses. Additionally, disconnected people often struggle with issues such as insomnia, hormone disruption, chronic pain, headaches, and fatigue among other things.
Humans have always connected with the Earth’s electrical energy through their feet. This is evidenced by the 1300 nerve endings per square inch on the sole of the foot. Compared to other parts of the body, that is an incredibly high density of nerve enrichment. This is not only necessary for balance, stability, and coordination of the foot, it is also necessary to absorb the electrical energy present on the Earth.
Modern Shoe Soles Block Our Connection with the Earth
Modern shoe soles have separated humans from the electrical energy of the ground with insulating covers. Most people go weeks to months without ever having direct skin to ground contact with the Earth for longer than a minute. These people live completely disconnected from the planet which leads to a disrhythmic function within the mind and body.
The human body has a very similar makeup to the Earth; they are both a combination of water and minerals. This combination is what conducts electrical currents. Our bodies were made to be connected with the Earth and this subtle electrical energy has extremely powerful effects on our health and well-being.
Avoid wearing shoes whenever possible
Sit outside barefoot with your feet on grass or soil.
Walk or run barefoot outside on grass, sand, or soil. Moist ground or grass is the perfect electrical conductor.
Expose any part of the body to the Earth, ground or any natural waters like lakes, streams, or oceans. Walking in salt water is one of the best grounding techniques due to the combination of earth, water, and electrolytes.
Sit or lean on the trunk or limb of a tree to share some of its natural electricity.
The benefits of earthing include reduced inflammation and better internal stress management. This results in better sleep, enhanced immunity, less pain, and a better state of mind and quality of mind. Many individuals report significantly better memory, creativity, innovativeness and spiritual direction after spending time connecting with the Earth.
